I wish they'd relase a remastered version that fixed the audio and included at least had an option to have the text crawl rather than the credits at the start.

@  Telly : (25 September 2016 - 09:27 PM)

tryin to buy the movie from amazon for $20-ish. the price of it has been fluctuating like crazy. not a day has gone by that it hasnt dropped to one price and then gone back up a few hours later. never seen a price fluctuate so much

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:57 PM)

Then again, a lot of versions of the movie had pretty bad sound quality, even the most recent blu-rays mess it up in places, so it's not as much our fault if we misheard stuff.

@  Arazyr : (25 September 2016 - 07:28 PM)

When I first heard it, half of it may as well have been in a foreign language, for all I could make out. (Of course, I can say that about most music...)

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 07:14 PM)

I can't remember entirely, and I can't "hear" anything but the actual lyrics now, but I remember "I am born to hurt you, I'll break the boundless sky" as how my brain parsed the first words.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 07:01 PM)

So what did you hear?

@  Pennpenn : (25 September 2016 - 06:39 PM)

I almost completely misinterpreted the lyrics for that song for ages, and when I did find out what they were I thought my idea of the lyrics was better.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2016 - 06:29 PM)

So apparently the 2016 remake of "Instruments of Destruction" is out. I'm still waiting for an Amazon download to become available, but the clips I heard thus far sound cool. They're using the uncensored lyrics!

@  Xellos : (22 September 2016 - 05:25 PM)

Neon Tiger's stage music from Mega Man X3 was also pretty much straight from Guns 'N Roses' "My Michelle". X5 also renamed all the Mavericks as references to GNR.

@  Dracula : (22 September 2016 - 02:26 PM)

the band name is Journey btw.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 02:25 PM)

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Shade Man's theme sounds like a mariachi song.

@  ShadowMan024 : (22 September 2016 - 02:13 PM)

Yeah. Lots of Mega Man songs are copied from bigger songs.

@  Bass X0 : (22 September 2016 - 12:50 PM)

Did Capcom copy Elec Man's stage theme from Journey by Faithfully?

Not Walky, specifically, but Shortpacked does have it's own page along with the Walkyverse.

Maybe it's my March tradition to revive this.

I've been bored somewhat lately and have been reading the 'Dethroning Moment of Suck' pages. Lord knows I love a good moan so surely I'd be in good company, right?

Reading the entries though, people seem to rage about the most pointless things. One that keeps cropping up is 'I HATE THIS EPISODE BECAUSE OF WHAT THEY'RE TEACHING CHILDREN!'.....What? When did TV shows have to educate children? I watched plenty of shows as a kid where characters did questionable things in a given episode and knew this was being presented by some adults as comedy, not education. Are you really expecting kids should get their moral values from the likes of Mr Krabs?

This is still the argument anyone adding to this page generally seems to run with. That apparently every work of fiction must have a moral and that when a story takes a non-politically correct tone it's trying to teach children this is the response they should take in life.

 

Are people really this dumb? Not every story has to have a moral, quite a few are just exploring something that would be impossible in reality for the sake of entertainment. In fact it's usually done to be cathartic; "You couldn't get away with this in real life, but wouldn't it be funny to do this?"

The worst part about TVTropes is really just the userbase, which is apparently the Planet of Easily Frightened People from Earthworm Jim.  I swear, ANYTHING that isn't a fluffy bunny is considered "nightmare fuel" to them. 

 

 

Ah well, at least they shunted "Fetish Fuel" and its Attendant away because of Google Ads.  That was a constant sine wave of terrible to even worse.

The worst part about TVTropes is the cargo culting of fiction. You have "writers" attempting to build a work out of TVtropes tropes as if they were Lego. That's not how you write! Not even close!
