  1. Seeing as you're in Hawaii I'm probably too early, but happy birthday 🎂. Hope it's a great one.

  2. knuckles after operation big wave:


  3. Ah, "fra-gee-lee." It must be Italian!

  4. Do you name your player character in Pokemon after your actual name, or do you come up with an different one? 

    1. Zaysho


      Normally I use my own name, though when I was younger and first played Red/Blue, I sometimes used "Ash". Other than that, I purposely chose another name for White 2 because I knew about the memory link stuff with White 1 and it'd seem kinda awkward to use my name.

    2. TCB


      Side note since I actually have Sword now; the World of Pokemon intro is an actual cinematic cutscene huh. 


      ...And yet this would've been better with voice acting just on principle because I like this quite a lot, lol.

    3. Conando


      I just use my online alias if I play as a boy, random girl names as a girl.

    4. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Usually "PC" for me.

      Unless I replay the game later on as a female trainer.

    5. Polkadi~☆


      Although I’ve never played Pokemon, I can say this much from my experience in other games:

      It feels awkward to use my own name.

    6. PaulyBFromDa303


      I use my own name. My rival is usually my roommate or my brother XD

    7. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I never use my "real" name ever

      I just go with whatever I think of to suit the character.

    8. Ferno


      I always used Ash as sort of a tradition born out of initial confusion (my first pokemon game was Crystal and I assumed that Red, Ethan, and Ash were all the same guy until I played further into the game and saw more of the anime, etc.) except in sapphire when I picked the girl and named her May. Been using different names besides Ash ever since White 2 tho. In Zelda games also, I just keep it as Link.

    9. Celestia


      I just use the "canon" names when possible. Same with any game that lets you name the player character(s).

    10. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      In Pokémon I always use my own name, because the character is so meaningless to the plot and the main purpose is for recording your Pokémon adventure. Unless I'm playing as the girl, in which case I use the default name. I don't like the name Alex, so I was really pleased when the games finally started to accept longer names and I could finally call myself Alexander.

      In any other game though, I tend to choose the default name. Like, how the fuck can you play with any name except Link? It just feels so wrong. And yet, I've seen plenty of people express disappointment over the fact that you can't pick a name in that game. 

      Typically I really dislike when games use audience insert characters. I don't enjoy avatars at all.

  5. Reaction: Gill from the SF3 series is a boss in Ultimate.

  6. Why is it that the Rush games, two games in the franchise that have very little voice acting, are also the only games in the series to list who voices who?

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Gotta love the Engrish though. Rush credits Blaze's VA as "Berra Hudson".

    2. Menace2Society


      Rush 1 in general had a somewhat rocky translation. Same with Advance 2 and Advance 3 now that I think of it. 

    3. StaticMania


      They are? That really doesn't seem right..

    4. Menace2Society


      Believe it or not, yeah, that’s the case. Most Sonic games usually just list the voice actors in the credits without saying what roles they had. The Rush games were the sole exceptions to this, so you actually have Jason Griffith being credited as the voice of Sonic, and such.

    5. Shaddy Zaphod

      Shaddy Zaphod

      New a female companion!

  7. Save YouTube From COPPApocalypse - Music Video - Fist Bump

    Kind of an odd way to support the cause, but I felt the song conveyed the message for both YouTuber & viewer alike to make our voices heard.

  8. Only planned to watch one episode for the evening last week but ended up seeing the majority of the season, I'm honestly really surprised how much I got caught up into watching Green Eggs and Ham. Having finished it today, gotta say, I'm really impressed with this show. Besides the art direction/animation and the characters (speaking of which--special kudos to Gluntz, she by far was my favorite); I don't think I have ever constantly paused/re-winded episodes in a show so much to catch so many hidden jokes and visual gags in the backgrounds and newspapers. Besides being really clever they're also perfectly Seussian in nature. Surprisingly emotional too at one certain point.

    There's a second season in the works, so I can't wait to see that; but honestly I'd love to see this crew tackle more of Seuss' works.

    1. Ferno


      Would love to see them make a Grinch special, if they did it'd feel like a true successor to the old 2D classic

  9. So... I showed my crush that I've got her added with a heart next to her name because I'm cheesy as fuck... But she counterattacked me and ended up showing me that she ALSO has me added with a heart next to my name.

    But she's like, coldness herself. Like, Titanic-Iceberg cold. 

    Yet at the same time everytime I try to make a move she just yeets me away be it hanging out or whatever.

    ... But she also sometimes screenshares with me while she's playing World of Warcraft and we spend like 7 hours in a call even if she knows I don't play WoW. 


    I'm confused.  

    How do people deal with this having a crush thing, it's terribly hard. 

    Oooor I'm extremely dumb, whichever comes first.

    1. McGroose


      Is this a long distance relationship thing or close distance?

    2. Blue Wisp

      Blue Wisp

      Err she lives two hours away from where I am. I've went twice to hang out with her, it's an easy travel so distance isn't really an issue (to me at least).

      Would've gone more times but she's a lazy lone wolf so yeesh but I don't mind it because I'm the same.

      It's everything else that confuses me. 

    3. McGroose


      Gotcha. Well if it's basically a decent middle ground in terms of distance, I'll consider it short distance. You've got to be the one to take the initiative and ask he out on dates, figure out how to make your personality likeable to her, don't overexert yourself on first dates, take things at a reasonable pace and don't make anything that may sound demanding in anyway. Try to really get into things she likes, even if at first you're completely indifferent or bored to it. If you really like this girl, don't do anything stupid, even if it's private and maybe not that big of a deal. Karma bites you in the ass for even subtle things like that...

      Since you live two hours away and that's still a decent commute, really try to hype up your get togethers and don't do shit like just playing video games together. Go out, learn more about eachother, do active things. Sitting on your ass all day and using media as a means to get closer will basically just relationship limbo. At least, for most people I've known. Not to say you can't do that of course, but balance it out at least 50/50 with diverse activities and your videogame/TV hobbies or whatever else you do digitally. 


      Don't be yourself as you currently perceive it, be a better version of yourself and a version more ideal in her eyes. After all, you don't know what "yourself" will be a year or two or more from now, do you?

  10. Evening everyone.



    Haven't been on for a while in any serious amount, bar the movie topic before the redesign reveal, but I'm still around and alive. It's just been hard to find time with working at night now and not really having any good impressions on anything worth sharing. I may get into my thoughts again on the movie at another point, but right now I just want to share something which made me smile; my latest drawing.


    Not my best work, but I was happy with it and thought I'd share. I'll pop back in again later everyone, so see you then.

    1. Failinhearts


      Ayyy, more of your awesome art! What a great end to the day!

    2. Sonic Fan J

      Thank you @Failinhearts. Glad you like it 😊

      Nice job!

      Looks awesome!

  11. At long last, the utmost life changing film arrives to conclude the long decade.


  12. Wow, Colors DS was shorter than I thought. Took me about 3 hours and nearly 30 minutes to beat, and that’s counting the times I restarted a level or did some of the extra missions. Was a fun romp, though.

  13. Ah yes, the most classic of instruments. Dog.

      Eat your heart out, Sonic 4

  14. Art topic update. Profiles for my OCs, take two~ *claps clapboard*



  15. Happy 11th anniversary of Sonic Unleashed HD best version NA.

    Haha, ya know, if you would've told me back then that we had an at least 11 year wait until a game would actually try in every department again I'd... eh-...




    1. Radiant Hero Ike

      Radiant Hero Ike

      AU where Rin Okumura wants to beat the [bleep] out of Satan because the latter erased Sonic Unleashed from existence 

  16. Had a customer complain about me again today. She was fighting with another customer over fish, I split them up. One complained that I was rude. Next time I'll let them punch each others lights out.

  17. I think I would be okay if Mania 2 goes for a hand drawn style instead of pixel art, as long as they can emulate Tyson's style. At the same time the game would cost more to make and this could mean less levels, buuuuuuut if it's well made and with all original zones, I'll eat it.

    1. Strickerx5


      Tbh I'd take even a 3 level game with a hand drawn art-style over the usual pixel art in a heart beat at this point. While I respect the effort that goes into making everything look as lively as it did in Mania (and Press Garden act 2 is simply stunning)... I'm just personally sort of bored by the whole pixel art movement seen in a majority of indie games over the past decade.

      Either way, I'm just hoping the next Mania advances things in multiple areas. Hope the team got the whole "what would a Sonic game be in the year 199X" out of their system. I'd like a game that actually moves the series forward while still keeping the same drive and love behind it. Not asking for high end graphics, 3D, or anything. Just a lot less emulation is all.

  18. I had a look at some of My Hero Academia's colour pages, and found something from one of the annual character voting contests, which got removed in the volume releases:

    It's pointed out that even Pikachu and Mega Man X got a vote each. In a manga that does not even feature them. That's, um... huh... Whoever those two folks were, absolute madlads.

  19. You know what's funny? Mr. Krabs VA won't dub the series, but he always return to dub the movies. 

    1. Jango


      Forgot to mention I'm talking about the brazilian VA, oops. I wonder if Clancy Brown does the same tho'

    2. Ryannumber1gamer


      Clancy Brown voices Krabs in the show.

    3. Noodle Panda

      Noodle Panda

      Why wouldn’t he?

    4. Menace2Society


      Clancy Brown only does that with the games... and even then, it’s with certain games. It’s inconsistent, really.

    5. Jango


      @Noodle Panda Hell, if I knew. I guess the VA dubs the movie because it's just once at every now and then and to please the fans, since he was the first Krabs VA over here. Meanwhile, and thankfully, the brazilian Sponge Bob's VA is the same since the beggining and he's really good, even Tom Kenny acknoledges him.

  20. Colors DS came a day earlier than expected. The level design in this version really makes me question why the Wii version was so blocky. It’s so much more fun.

    1. Sean


      I think it gets less fun as it goes, though not to insane degrees like SLW 3DS does. I think certain levels like Planet Wisp and Asteroid Coaster mandate wisp usage more often than the Wii version does too.

    2. Menace2Society


      I will say that it feels really weird playing a Rush-esque game without the trick moves. It’s kinda awkward pressing the X button to perform some tricks only to realize it doesn’t do shit without a wisp, lol.

  21. Meanwhile in BotW:

    *Finds the Forgotten Temple*

    Oooh, what’s in here?

    *Five Guardians simultaneously lock-on to me*


    *Mipha’s Grace on cooldown*


    *Only one shield in inventory*



    1. Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Conquering Storm’s Servant

      They really love to screw your curiosity at times, huh?

    2. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      It's scary, but all you have to go is keep gliding forwards. Nothing will come close to catching you.

    3. Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Conquering Storm’s Servant

      Oh, I just bought a bunch of arrows and killed them all after coming back. Didn’t know you could do that.

    4. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Yeah. Literally all you have to do is get the paraglider out and hold forwards.

      BotW has that kind of design in spades. It looks and feels intricate or foreboding the first time you play it, and then it dawns on you that you don't need to bother. The brilliant, open ended nature or the game can be its own undoing.
