  1. Fan-Service doesn't just refer to that kind of thing, fan-service is essentially just something that has been added to a piece of material in order to please fans, specifically to do that, even if it doesn't make sense. I.E - for example - how the Emperor was randomly added to The Rise of Skywalker - he's one of the most beloved and iconic villains in history, and Ian McDermott is seen as the best thing in all of the prequels. Which is why Disney randomly bullshitted an excuse to revive him for TRoS, and had him spewing out beloved memes. It's the same thing with Heroes. It makes little to zero sense, but gets away on the very premise of just having these insane fusions, transformations, and everything else that fans think is just super cool. Super Saiyan 4 Vegito, Golden Cooler, SSJ3 Raditz/Nappa/Vegeta/Broly, Resurrected Merged Zamasu, Adult Gotenks, etc. That's the appeal of the series, it throws logic out the window to simply deliver the most insane, but also cool as fuck characters and fusions.
  2. I mean in all fairness, there's no reason to expect much from the anime anyway - Super Dragon Ball Heroes - as an entity in of itself is simply an excuse to pile on tons upon tons of fan service, and it does an amazing job with it. The Promotional Anime is essentially much of the same - fan service and very little substance other than that. It's more often than not simply excuse plots to justify the fan-service. Even with the first arc, it was essentially just an excuse to have SSB Goku and SSJ4 Goku fight each other, resulting in a SSJ4 Vegito fusion, and a LSSJ Rage Goku.
  3. So P4G question.

    I've been using this as my team for Rise's palace (both the first run, and the replay) - Yu, Chie, Yukiko, Kenji. I've been using this team due to Chie and Kenji's covering two good elements, and doing really damaging physical attacks, and Yukiko due to her support abilities.

    Is it even worth putting in other characters once I've decided my "main" team, and at that - who should be replaced? I don't wanna replace Kenji, since he's my favourite character in the game so far, and he's just really good on a damage/elemental point, and Yukiko seems to be too invaluable to get rid of - but also Chie seems to be really powerful (more so than Kenji). 

    It's not a huge issue right now, but I heard Naoto is practically a mainstay when she joins, due to her being incredibly good for getting rid of random encounter shadows, and I fear that due to characters you aren't using not gaining EXP, Chie, Teddie and Yosuke will all just be worthless due to not level scaling. 

    Is it worth trying to swap out the party members, or is it better to just decide on a final party, and stick with it?

    1. KHCast


      Yosuke’s got some pretty OP moves later down his path iirc if you keep leveling him so I’d keep him tbh. A guy I watch online that loves the game has his party setup as Naoto, Kanji, Yosuke. 

  4. Sojiro > Dojima

    1. KHCast


      Ehhhhh. I felt more for Dojima tbh with the shit he was going through with Nanako. But he’s a cop, so o ding a few points off for that, so it’s about even between them for me 

    2. Waveshocker Sigma

      Waveshocker Sigma

      Uh, KH? Dojima is the one with Nanako. I think you got it mixed up.

    3. KHCast


      Fuck, my brain was thinking one thing but my body was texting another. That’s what I meant 

    4. Teoskaven


      Shut up, Adachi.

  5. Finished Shadow Rise and Teddie a little bit ago, currently going back through Rise's palace to fight the secret boss.

  6. There's now four days left to get requests in for Sonic Musical Spectacular 5 and to receive the Disco Egg award for using a request:


  7. I say we have this as our next Paper Mario game

    1. SpookyCookie

      Supah Berry

      Well Intelligent Systems did make Fire Emblem collab with Persona's parent series, so something like this could be a mere phone call away...

    3. iambitter21


      wake up, get up, get out there, because intelligent system is listening to atlus fans for a change.

  8. Reading through the manga version of the ToP and...

    ...wow, it wasn't that bad until Kale just straight up abridges about 10 episodes in one fell swoop

    1. GrammyGram


      If this happened during the time the anime aired, it would be ahead by fricking three months lol.

      Tournament of Power.

  9. That was insanely boring.

  10. Ubisoft Forward begins in a few minutes, come watch it live with other SSMB members!


  11. I got the time wrong - Ubisoft Forward will be beginning on Motobug in an hour.


  12. https://cytu.be/r/Motobug

    Ubisoft's game reveal event starts on Motobug in 30 minutes!

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Well, technically the pre-show anyway.

  13. Does anyone want Motobug to stream the Ubisoft reveal event?

    1. Perkilator


      Eh, sure? Mainly cause I've got nothing better to do.

    2. DarkRula


      If you want to get Watch Dogs 2 on PC for free, all you have to do is sign in here - https://www.ubisoft.com/en-gb/forward and watch a minute of the conference on that page. I'll be joining on Motobug, but I've got that page open for when it starts.

  14. I'm surprised no one mentioned how the original Shantae is not only getting a Switch release, but a brand new GBC release by Limited Run

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Yeah, I mean, it's cool and all. I'd probably be more excited about it if I didn't already have it on 3DS.

    2. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      What? Like a physical Switch release or just a digital one?

    3. Ryannumber1gamer


      @Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      It's weird but

      • Shantae (the original) - getting a digital Switch release, and a new physical reprint of the GBC cartridge. (No Switch physical release)
      • Risky's Revenge - Getting both a physical and digital release on Switch
    4. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Geez. Does Pirate's Curse even have a physical release on Switch?

  15. Man, Kanji following Yu and Yosuke all the way to the city on a bike

    true bro right here

  16. The finale to Motobug’s Super Mario marathon starts tonight at 10pm BST/5pm EST!

  17. Sonic Heroes is still one of the few games in the series I've yet to complete.

    1. GrammyGram


      Why must've you put such a giant curse upon yourself.

      Go and finish what you've started.


    2. Dejimon11


      And nobody blames you 

    3. StaticMania


      I blame you.

      But only because you're better.

    4. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      100% complete, or finish Last Story complete?

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      Finish Last Story.

      Pretty sure the farthest I got was finishing Team Sonic and Team Rose. The thing is I had the PS2 version growing up, and the PS2 version had it's own fair share of frustrating bugs (least of which was one where one of the loops in Rail Canyon would bug out and lead to an instant death halfway up the loop).

    6. Harkofthewaa


      If you're gonna play it, get anything but the PS2 version.  That's the version I played growing up, and when I got the Gamecube version it was night and day. Compared to all the other versions, the PS2 version issues are

      A. The framerate is cut in half to 30, and an unstable 30 at that. Multiplayer becomes a 10-15 fps sideshow l.

      B. Collision issues out the wazoo. You ran into one in Rail Canyon but they're all over the place. Protip: whenever the game expects you to go fast, switch to Fly formation. The loss in speed should keep you on the ground and in the case you do clip through anyways you can try to save yourself.

      C. Despite the lowered framerate that wasn't enough, for most of the textures have been butchered. Think like the PS2 version of Resi4 but without the extra content and balance changes (at the time mind you)  to justify getting it over the Gamecube release.

      Overall I think Sonic Heroes is unoffensive... on the Gamecube

       The PS2 version is trash.


    7. Ryannumber1gamer


      I've got the Gamecube version (picked it up a long time ago), but I rarely have my Gamecube set-up, and last time I played it, I only got to Frog Forest with Team Sonic before I got really annoyed at the controls.

    8. Adamabba


      that is unacceptable

      Back when I first finished it I thought finding out about Metal Sonic's plot and his final fight was the best part of the game, but now that I've seen the Game Grumps' playthrough and thought about it through the eyes of someone who's had a downright terrible time with it... I can't imagine how completing it would actually be worth it, since it's just one boss fight you stand around waiting for mostly. Especially in this day and age, where you can just look up the cutscenes online if you're really drawn in by the mystery.

      Then again I also had a downright terrible time with it when I was younger so lol

  18. Holy shit, Jason Griffith's original Shadow voice during SA2 in Sonic X was terrible lol

    1. Kuzu


      Hey cut him some slack, he had to voice two characters who regularly engage in banter. Shit would be hard on anyone. 

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      First off, I don't see what that has to do with his voice just not fitting Shadow originally, it sounded like just a slightly deeper Sonic.

      Secondly, I'm not taking a shot at Jason Griffith, and it's why I specified the SA2 arc in X, because I believe Jason's Shadow heavily improved come Shadow's game. 

      Thirdly, given that I don't even find Jason's earlier years with Sonic particularly bad (In fact, I grew up with Jason's Sonic, since my first steps into this franchise was Heroes and X, but it was primarily Sonic X). I don't see why I need to cut him slack for just saying his original take on Shadow was bad, I think it was. It improved much more later on, but for the start of his period as Shadow, I don't think it fits at all and is pretty bad.

    3. Kuzu


      I was essentially saying that since he was casted as Shadow; he had to find his footing and differentiate his tone for him from Sonic and make them sound distinct. 


      That's it, I didn't say you accused him of being bad or that you were attacking him...

    4. Ryannumber1gamer


      It's just saying to cut him some slack, it made it sound like I was being particularly harsh on him or something, so I apologise for misunderstanding the intention.

      I kinda liked Shadow having a deeper, richer voice instead of the generic hissy bad guy voice Griffith went with as time went on. It was a unique take on the character.
