  1. I forgot how much I love blueberry waffles

  2. Just coming back to vent for a second and say fuck trump, the gop, and the trans military ban

  3. So is the rally cry of the 2020 election going to be "Dump the Trump"?

  4. While at work my mind is mulling over my feelings for my drawing skills and the resulting motivation/passion I have for it and how I also feel about Sonic Mania in relation to how I honestly feel about this series with my current state of mind.

    What a trip.

      I believe I'm fine, it's just my train of thought rode into a reflective state of mind.

  5. Deep down, you know Donald Trump would prefer the Faulconer score.

      I don't think I did, really.

  6. *thinks about how in the next 20 or so years, the hire-ups at all major U.S. animation studios will be made up of passionate weebs who grew up watching anime and can't hide those influences in the big budget animated films they produce*

      Its like, this is the internet era now. Different countries see each other's stuff and get inspired instantly now, all the time. There's gonna be more cross-pollination in the coming decades, and it won't be like that awkward kappa mikey or "how to draw manga" era during the first wave; it'll be a second wave of good stuff, legit stuff like Avatar TLA but in droves this time rather than a once-in-a-decade thing. and it'll be awesome

      that or business majors worm their way into the big seats and continue the norm...

      Hoping... downright praying for the weebs though

      now that's a sentence I never thought I'd type

      @Ferno

      Not to sound selfish, but boy would I give to be a part of that movement. If I had the power, I would outright bridge the gap between U.S. and Japanese art by having two studios collaborating as one for a mega sized animated show. It can pay tribute to both sides and their customs, and gradually bring them together to help make peoples transition between the two much smoother.

    6. Ferno

      Ferno

      20 years from now we'll probably be a lot more advanced with better video conferencing and real time drawing/ writing collaboration between studios across different countries at once, not to mention translation software will probably be very advanced too making language barriers between teams a thing of the past, or atleast a little more bearable.

      eee

  7. Just watched that SU episode... damn near teared up towards the end there. It was such a long journey getting here...

    Gonna need a bit to process it all.

    Though, I do have one question... and I'm not really sure if it'll speak to anything so I'll put it under a spoiler tag anyway just to be safe.

    Spoiler

    Was this the series finale? Are we getting more episodes? Cause... it kind fells like they put everything on the table here. I know there's still a movie coming but still.

     

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Actually, nvm on the question. Just looked in the topic and it was pretty much answered for me.

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I'm just mixed about the whole thing. 

    3. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      Eh, I can certainly see that reaction to it. Like, it did cover like 5 years worth of ground in about 40 minutes but like... damn did it hit most of its big moments home. And that ending was just... mmmmm damn, they could end the series on that and I'd be happy.

    4. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      On it's own it's nice to get resolution to stuff but looking at it from all the build up.....huh that was a bit underwhelming. Like season 4 could of been establishing more of the diamonds while season 5 looked about resolving a lot of things instead of just a 1 hour finale

      Spoiler

      Also Lars should of have been in this more because yikes most of his character development happened off screen. 

       

    5. Penny

      Penny

      Spoiler

      i thought that the entire part of the episode in White Diamond's head-ship was phenomonal, and the part that James Baxter animated is one of the most beautiful moments I've ever seen in a cartoon

       

    6. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      @Dejimon11

      Spoiler

      Yeah, Lars coming in last second did throw me for a loop. Really think him coming back to earth should've been saved for season 6 or something.

      @Penny

      Spoiler

      Dude, when Steven fuses back to normal, the animation during that was spectacular holy shit

       

    7. Penny

      Penny

      Spoiler

      oh yeah, for sure. makes sense too since that was animated by james baxter, who did a lot of work with Disney and Dreamworks in the 90s. its a beautiful moment thematically, but that smooth as butter animation really hits it home and elevates it. probably my favorite scene in the entire show tbh. really hope the movie's animation comes close to that because that'd be sick lol

      @Strickerx5

  9. Flashback to 1996. N64 release day. What game do you get, Super Mario 64, Pilotwings 64, or both?

      You'll have to ask Nintendo. It's the choice they gave us back then.

  12. Would you buy Switch port of 3D World if they changed as much as they did with NSMBU?

    1. Ferno

      Ferno

      I never had a Wii U so I'd buy it period

    2. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      I'd probably buy it just because I liked the game but not at $60.

      I'd probably buy it at $60 if a 3D Land remaster was included with it.

    3. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      If they added Yoshi as a playable character I would. Come on is 3D W O R L D and there is no Yoshi?! lol

      But it would be even better if there was a 3D Land remaster like Luigi U, yes.

    4. Ferno

      Ferno

      I've always wanted a 3D land 2 on 3DS but a Switch remaster would be the next best thing.

    5. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      By changing, you mean taking  out stuff that was too Wii U gimmicky and forces the forth player to be stuck with an easy mode character?

      Even then, 3D World's a way better game than NSMBU is, so there no real need to add anything real extra.

       

      @JosepHenry

      Did 3D L A N D with no Daisy or Wario in sight not clue you in?

    6. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      I mean, 3D Land had the excuse that Wario and Daisy were not in main games for a while, Yoshi was in Galaxy 2

    7. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      probably not. good game, but i already have the wii u version, and just did another playthrough recently even

    8. Adamabba

      Adamabba

      i just meant as much change as nsmbu (not that much)

      if they added good extra content id be more likely to pick it up

    9. TCB

      TCB

      Probably not

    10. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      I'll buy 3D World regardless 

    11. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      You bet. A Switch release of 3D World, and I could finally sell my WiiU.

    12. Sean

      Sean

      If it came bundled with a remaster of 3D Land (the ever so slightly superior game) then yes

  13. white diamond really has the GLaDOS energy to her

  14. i made her buttered toast, she gave me a shiny rock, one thing led to another, and the next thing i knew, we ended up

  15. And here are the best selling games of 2018 

     

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      It depresses me to see Black Ops 4 as number 2 because Activision is still bitching that they aren't getting enough money and are destroying the game through microtransaction bullshit.

    2. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Mario Party??? I figure that series had long since faded into a more niche series in recent memory. When has a MP last been a Top 20 seller before?

  16. Still getting used to using Twitter for art tbh. On Tumblr I posted whatever kinda fanart because hey it was tumblr it was out in the internet boondocks and no one noticed or cared, but on twitter I tend to "behave" more because you can post some really *ok-emoji* fanart and people will be like "oh wow im gonna @ the creator of the series itself I'm sure they wanna see this" and you're like

    tenor.gif?itemid=5096321

    its like you're in the big city on twitter, the "new york/ LA of the net" where everyone lives and posts :U

    1. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      A part of me is actually somewhat surprised other sites haven't tried to capitalize on the gaping hole Tumblr has left open. I was thinking that DA may be an alternative but then I forgot how actually awful it is to browse on there and keep up to date with the creators you care about.

    2. Dejimon11

      Dejimon11

      @Strickerx5 It took twitter nearly 12 years for the website to finally be profitable. So in a way it's a huge a endeavor and I don't think any platform wants to invest the time and effort into playing the long game. 

    3. Ferno

      Ferno

      like fuq it, look out mainstream art world on twidder, i exist its nice to meet you all

  17. The Smash series in a nutshell

     

  18. Every so often I’m reminded that the voice of Sparky on Fairly Odd Parents later came out as a trans woman and I smirk devilishly because I bet Butch Hartman *loves* that

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Betcya' he would say "But Sparky was the most hated character because he's voiced by a trans" or some pitiful excuse like that

    2. E-122-Psi

      E-122-Psi

      Meowth wants a word with Biff Hartman. :P

  19. Omg I forgot it was your birthday a couple days ago. Happy belated birthday

  20. You know, one thing I've never understood was the thought process behind ST making Secret Rings.

    Like, it was an afterthought after Sega realized that porting 06 to the Wii wouldn't be an easy job but was creating an entirely new game really easier? I get that 06 would've been far from a simple port job even after the graphical downgrades but one would think that taking the already "made" content and fitting most of it onto the Wii would've been a lot easier than just creating something from the ground up.

    Keep in mind, this thought is completely leaving out the actual quality of both games as I don't really think it mattered in this specific viewpoint.

    1. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      They likely wanted to make something that better cashed in on the WiiMote's tech. Plus, I don't think the Wii was capable of running the physics engine that Sonic Team promoted with 06 on the other consoles.

    2. Wraith

      Wraith

      Secret Rings is a remarkably simple game so I'd say it wouldn't be worth the strain in comparison.

    3. Ferno

      Ferno

      Its just wild to me that sonic team broke into three pieces back then; the crew working on 06, the crew working on secret rings, and the group that left with Naka to form Prope. And 06 was STILL due out that holiday season with no delay. its like having a horse with 3 broken legs sprinting to the finish line

    4. Wraith

      Wraith

      They were developing a new NiGHTS game as well around this time. 

    5. Yeow

      Yeow

      I'd say the bigger question mark was not only starting production on Secret Rings when Sonic 2006 --troubled production and all-- was still trying to be rushed into completion to meet the 15th anniversary/holiday season, but going the extra ineptitude mile of splitting up the existing development staff they had to start working on it.

      Really, your opening quote can just be trimmed down to just "I've never understood [what] was the thought process behind ST" and that's all you need to say about that fiasco.

    6. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      @FernoI still think there's credibility in the idea that Microsoft had them under a deadline to get the game out with the 360. Microsoft went out of their way at point to market that game so they had to have had some partnership going on there.

      Wasn't that Microsoft thing confirmed fake? 

    9. Strickerx5

      Strickerx5

      @Dejimon11Was it? I mean again, not saying it's the truth but there seems to be a lot there for it. Be interested to see otherwise.

    10. Yeow

      Yeow

      @Wraith That was the Sonic Team USA offshoot, though. Sonic 2006 was made back in the proper Sonic Team group in Japan.

      (Kinda ironic, that, since during that time, Sonic Team USA was handling Sonic games from Adventure 2 through Shadow; while Sonic Team Japan was making original games like PSO, Chu-Chu Rockett, Billy Hatcher, etc.)

  21. I've never really been huge on Transformers but I just saw Bumblebee and I'm pretty sure it's one of my favorite movies of 2018.

  22. Oh right, there's a new Annabelle movie coming out this year. I fucking love The Conjuring universe so I can't wait to see that.

  23. sonic lost world theory: sonic is dead and lost hex is purgatory?!?!?! that could explain the lore backstory canon of sonic lost world. thoughts????

    1. Alex2Beta

      Alex2Beta

      lost world theory: the game was once meant to be a 2 hour extension of the lost world level in sa1

      pls sub and like and comment and follow my social accounts k thnx

    2. Ferno

      Ferno

      inb4 legit news sites make a clickbait article on this fan theory during a really slow news day

    3. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      Sonic never did survive at the end of Sonic Colors. So the wisp reincanated him in the wisp afterlife. That's why wisp starting showing up out of nowhere. And why most side characters sans Tails and Eggman are not given focus.

    4. Heckboy

      Heckboy

      what if sonic's actually in a coma and every game since sonic 1 has been a dream? sounds pretty dark to me

    5. Ferno

      Ferno

      We need a youtube thumbnail for this. I'm thinking a well known smiling sonic render with the mouth obviously and poorly flipped upside down to look like a frown, and his eyes edited to be looking in opposite directions for a really try-hard dumb expression

    6. Alex2Beta

      Alex2Beta

      i disagree sonic was always a sentient short skeleton by the name of a font you fools

    7. Failinhearts

      Failinhearts

      Sounds like MatPat.

    8. SupahBerry

      And don't forget a large highlighted arrow pointing towards sonic's groin

    9. SenEDDtor Missile

      SenEDDtor Missile

      Sonic snorted rings of marijuana by accident (they look like regular Rings from a distance) and was stuck on a high thinking up the Lost Hex, while Tails and Eggman teamed up to get him back to Earth.

    10. Alex2Beta

      Alex2Beta

      @SenEDDtor Missile This literally wouldn't be out of place from the ebooks_sonic account.

  24. Holy fuck, deadlifts are more challenging than I expected. Not nearly as bad as squats tho...
