@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:52 AM)

The recent ongoing series didn't start until what, 2013?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:51 AM)

Then was continued as a five-issue mini-series ("Local Heroes"), then came a 16-issue maxi-series ("The Dark Age"), plus a couple of standalone specials and two-parters...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:50 AM)

It started out as a series, but due to Busiek's health problems (?), it was put on hold after six issues, then got relaunched with a new #1, had several delays (again because of Busiek's health issues), was discontinued after #22...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:49 AM)

I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of Astro City becoming a series of graphic novels now. I mean, it's not like it's always been a steady ongoing series.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

Anyone here reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City?

Remember the Noid? He steals pizzas!

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario *wheeze*

@  Echowarrior : (15 January 2019 - 11:03 PM)

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2019 - 08:49 AM)

@  Xellos : (15 January 2019 - 06:22 AM)

I used to use a pic like that as my avatar for years, but that... is a secret.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 02:07 AM)

Is Flatland an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (14 January 2019 - 11:16 PM)

@Xellos Every time I see you post, I picture Xellos' infuriating smug grin and finger waggling with the "sore wa hi*mi*tsu*desu <3"

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

The Last Starfighter is also one of those

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

Astronaut gets shot through a wornhole and ends up on a living starship full of escaped alien prisoners.

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

I realized a few months ago that Farscape is a sci-fi-based Isekai.

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

I mean, it's only the first level of the chart.  The bad part being how the company reacted to the complaints.

 

I'm just surprised Ubisoft or Konami didn't figure in there somewhere.

64 characters unlocked now.

 

Notable new favorites:

 

Snake - He's surprisingly fast and heavy hitting for an ostensibly tactical combat character.  I always imagined CQC to be a lot more of a precision combat thing.  Then again, a lot of his moves also involve explosives, so there ya go XD

 

Mewtwo - He's kinda overpowered, not that I'm complaining.  His tail whip and energy blasts are great, especially the B charge that he can just hold forever. Cheesed a few unlocks by just picking them off with energy shots.

 

Meta Knight - A heavier, harder hitting, cooler Kirby, nuff said XD

Debating if I want to go back to Let's Go Eevee or Rise of the Tomb Raider first.

Basically debating how much I want to have to pay attention to what I'm doing.

I know exactly what SNK was thinking.

 

"Hey, Jeanne d'Arc is really popular in Japan right now and one of our old fighting games had a Jeanne in it, let's bring her back as DLC for Heroines so we can totally cash in on this trend"

 

I will say this much, at least only one of her 3 outfits is an embarrassing fan service get-up.

I am starting to genuinely think Bethesda is actively trying to completely ruin their reputation.  What little they had to begin with.

 

It's not enough to release a objectively broken, dysfunctional game for $60, scam their special edition customers, offering pathetic excuses and borderline insulting compensation, only relenting after their bullshit excuses were exposed, but they apparently think a reasonable price for a hugging SANTA SUIT is $20, "marked down" from $30.  A third to a half of the full game's upfront cost.  And apparently their microtransaction store is full of similarly priced bullshit.

 

You know what? Forget EA, in the last... how long has it been?  Less than a month? Bethesda has put up an impressive fight for the "Most Unethical Game Publisher" title and I'm not sure I can really disagree.  I used to think of them as just being a kind of bumbling, perhaps slightly lazy developer.  Like, they still want to make good games, but they're just not competent to do it.  But this whole Fallout 76 debacle has really opened my eyes.  Elder Scrolls VI had better be made of pure digital orgasims or I'm not touching it with a 91/2 foot pole.

They must have some sort of endgame that's like the game company equivalent of burning down your house for the insurance money; it's the only explanation. There's no way that they've come up with this many new and creative ways to be such a brightly burning garbage fire purely by accident.

I think Bethesda just reached the point where a company has been successful for so long that they start thinking they can shit on a plate and their customers will still buy it, so they start putting out low effort shit products to save money on production costs and increase their profit margins.

On a happier gaming subject, now that I'm not basically living under a rock anymore I'm finally checking out the Spyro remake and it's unbelievably good. They made the Crash remake look like practice. There's things here and there I would have done differently but very little seems wrong, just not what I imagined. Obviously it's what someone else imagined. I'm okay with that.

 

The first gameplay video I watched almost made me dizzy though. My eyes are so trained for the old levels. I know what I'm supposed to be seeing and now there's so much visual information there. It feels exactly like learning to focus my eyes again when switching to a new pair of glasses with a new prescription. I'm getting used to it but it's a shock.

 

Activision, you can do right.
