Yes.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 June 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Is it weeby of me to refer to the two IDW TF continuities as Heisei and Reiwa? I mean, the switchover almost perfectly lines up with the change of eras...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2019 - 10:35 AM)

I hate when the spicy version of something isn't spicy!

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2019 - 08:43 AM)

I hate it when the spicy version of something is in almost identical packaging to the non-spicy version. Especially when I don't notice until I've got home.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 June 2019 - 05:44 PM)

They make a lot of pills for that.

I got the results of the test back. I definitely have no sense of humor.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

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

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.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 06:35 AM)

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

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)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  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.

That bit in the Incredibles was kind of weird. I'm supposed to think more people having superpowers is bad?

 

But anyway, it's a legit relief to feel more in control of that part of myself. It's also probably the most trans thing ever. Good luck finding any commercials claiming fewer erections as a selling point for anything.

That actually would be a godsend. Sometimes my sexdrive feels fairly normal and I can deal with it. Other times(like the past few days) it seems to kick into overdrive and it just feels like I'm drowning. It's also usually during these times I hate myself even more because it feels like control goes out the window.

I love the thought of having breasts, but if all hrt did was kill my labido, it would be a massive win.

Yeah.

 

It helps to have close family members who are supportive... but if your parents are religious conservative types like mine, good luck.

I admit I got really lucky there. My parents are atheists and fairly socially liberal. While it's awkward to talk about, they've been pretty accepting. My biggest enemy right now is probably my own fears and hangups.

About the libido thing, it also shows how the whole bathroom boogeyman thing is kind of hilariously off.

hug. I might have to amend my previous statement. My mom is trying to convince me not to change my name "to make things easier for people". Screw the entire concept of that argument.

Sooo.... your personhood should be limited, because it is an inconvenience to everyone else.

 

hug. That. Shit.

 

My in-laws are also the more liberal, atheist, progressive set of parents between mine and my wife's. They were also the ones who recommended I get a vasectomy after I came out, and implied that I "deceived" them, and went to lengths to keep me away from their grandchildren (who I've babysat for since they were in diapers) lest I "confuse" them.

 

I can't imagine what my conservative Trump supporter parents would say.

I managed to not cuss her out over it and the next day it turned out better than I expected. Apparently, the fact that she knew I was thinking about changing my name and hadn't told her yet what it was made her think I was planning something weird. When in fact, I was just embarrassed and not wanting to commit yet. She actually likes "Ashley". Now, if I DID want to do something weird that would still be my right, but at least that's not actually the problem.

The whole idea you or I might "confuse" people is so stupid. If a kid doesn't realize they're gay or trans or whatever until they meet someone who is, they were all the time and just didn't realize it. We don't have cooties, this isn't contagious. And keeping people in denial and ignorant just makes things more painful.

I haven't met him myself. An IRL friend of mine linked to a previous version of that guide back when I first came out to her and it was a useful read. I should probably warn people: there are NSFW pictures.

Oh that is awesome that that went that way. I love it (kinda-sorta) when I make it such a big thing in my own head then other people surprise you by making it not such a big thing. It’s what happened with my brother. I called him in the morning, told him I had something to tell him later in the evening; he thought I’d killed someone and needed the body cleaned up, or a sperm donor (not touching that second one :D), but when I told him that I was transitioning, what he said was, “Oh, that’s it?” Damn near brought me to (happy) tears. Or.... ok, it did. :D

YAAS! THANK YOU! I’ve been tying to nail the bigotry trope my in-laws were exuding for MONTHS now. Yes, that is exactly what they think; that my queerness is a contagious disease. Assholes. This is personhood that comes from within for MANY people; it’s only society with people like them that deams it “inappropriate” why we all have to hide it until it’s safer to come out.

Judge me when you're happy with your life.

It does seem to be how people think and it's kind of disturbing that they would rather keep people miserable and in denial by suppressing the subject.

Awww! :) Well, it's not that easy even if you're a cis girl, everyone has their own levels of touch/personal space preference. I like giving hugs (especially strong ones) but don't want to make anyone uncomfortable. I really wish there wasn't such a stigma about males seeking out contact especially as they get older, being thought of as weak/gay/trying to get some when they do. There's all those studies about how important contact is with babies/children, why wouldn't it be important to adults too? Anyway, I'm always up for a hug if anyone needs one.
