Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

Grain of salt time, folks!

 

via: http://nikkifinke.com/comic-con/

 

We know that Warner Bros Pictures is way behind Marvel Studios when it comes to making movies out of its comic book properties. But I have intel on what is coming up at this July’s  Comic-Con from the studio. A lot of stuff remains in flux  but my sources have so far:

 

May 2016 – Batman v Superman
July 2016 – Shazam
Xmas 2016 – Sandman
May 2017 – Justice League
July 2017 – Wonder Woman
Xmas 2017 – Flash and Green Lantern team-up
May 2018 – Man Of Steel 2

 

There had been talk of a Metal Men and Suicide Squad movie for sometime in 2016 but that project fell off the schedule.

 

 

 

 

Awesome "inside sources" aside, it looks like a pretty full slate for Warner, with three movies each year. Too much product too fast? Where is the solo Batman film? Are they shoehorning Sandman into the DCFU, when he really has no place being there? Will anyone actually go see a Flash v. Green Lantern movie?

 

I guess all these questions and more will be answered at Comic Con.... IN July!

Lol. DC-F-U.

Either way that certainly is ambitious but not too out of the ordinary seeing as Marvel has 2 movies a year and they're playing catch up. We'll see I guess.

Great that there's a Wonder Woman movie I guess, but overall I'm not sure if any of those interest me. 

Not really sure which DC heroes I'd really be interested in seeing a movie of. Maybe Teen Titans?

For whatever it's worth, a few years ago I had no interest in seeing a movie about Iron Man, and little interest in Thor or Captain America. About the only Marvel characters I did have any real interest at all in were the X-Men, Spider-Man, and the Hulk.

 

Granted, I'm not ready to make the leap to thinking these will turn out to be as pleasantly surprising, but I'm not ready to discount any of them either.

I think Green Lantern/Flash has the potential to be cool, but for me it will kind of depend on who is wearing the ring.

If a Green Lantern/Flash movie isn't about John Stewart and Wally West, and based primarily on their DCAU versions, then there is no point whatsoever to such a film.

Isn't he a sparkly vampire now in the Nu52?
 

If a Green Lantern/Flash movie isn't about John Stewart and Wally West, and based primarily on their DCAU versions, then there is no point whatsoever to such a film.

I only dislike Barry due to them ditching Wally to bring him back. Though there's elements of the characters that could be added to movie versions of the characters.

The problem with the Nu52 is that it's trying too hard to be gritty and "serious" that they aren't worth being taken seriously anymore. DCAU would be an excellent start but they'll be insistent on using Nu52. Thing is, they really need to take a step back and figure out what actually works. That's probably the biggest shame, the reboot didn't have to be as terrible as it has been.

I see Wonder Woman as "took you long enough". Shazam is a good or terrible choice, pending on how they handle his personality. Aquaman still needs a movie.

The biggest problem with the reboot is "we'll reset numbering to get sales!" is the extent of the thought they put into it.

 

Turns out you need a smidge more planning.

Granted, I'm not ready to make the leap to thinking these will turn out to be as pleasantly surprising, but I'm not ready to discount any of them either.

In fairness, though, our first pair of Marvel Studio films were Iron Man and Incredible Hulk, and it was the success (critically and financially) that made us interested in MCU as a whole.

 

DC, on the other hand, has NEVER shown any real vision to such an idea UNTIL Marvel reaped a few billion dollars from their films, and now are trying to "me too" it without half the thought or planning. Hell, Man of Steel wasn't (as far as I know) supposed to be a "universe foundation" until Avengers made a billion dollars and DC realized "oh crap, we got half a dozen heroes here, we need to do our OWN Avengers!" (Which amuses me when one considers the origins of the Avengers in the comic world).

 

Discounting the Nolan Batman series, I've yet to see ANYTHING from DC to make me particularly optimistic about the future projects.  Most either try WAY too hard to epically epic, copy the grim and realistic Nolan work, or too much world building without guarantee it will pay off.  And the fact Neil Gaiman's Sandman is on tap as a "DC Feature Film" just proves to me that they really don't have a clue to what they are doing (though, I wonder if Shazam and Sandman aren't an attempt to move the DC series into more magic, rather than the cosmic angle Marvel used.  At least until Dr. Strange comes out).

Long and short, they haven't made particularly good stand alone movies, much less "world builders", and nothing they've done has made me change that view.  Marvel has done enough good I'll give Guardians of the Galaxy far more a shot than I'm willing to give Shazaam or Wonder Woman at this stage.

I think their main problem is less of a lack of an Iron Man and rather a lack of a Blade. While the current connected movie universe started with with IM, Blade is what got Marvel rolling so that they could do Spider Man, X-Men, and the Fantastic Four. As said, DC needs more good standalone movies before their universe sticks and they need to potentially pass off a C or D lister to another studio to help build hype. Outside of animation, there's been an abnormal lack of use of their characters. And it's particularly bad for a few like Wonder Woman who are in a bit of a vicious circle where they wonder why the character has been steadily losing respect even though they don't push the character or only make shortsighted changes.
