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...

@  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)

*Dragon Slave*

@  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.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2019 - 08:13 PM)

Re:Creators!

@  Xellos : (14 January 2019 - 07:47 PM)

There is also Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero, where people regularly get summoned to a fantasy world, then eventually sent back with their accumulated powers (and the main character smuggles the demon lord's daugher by his request, which is a no-no)

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 07:23 PM)

We need more inverse isekais, like The Devil is a Part-Timer

@  ▲ndrusi : (14 January 2019 - 04:11 PM)

I feel like Tron is pushing it but I can't actually come up with an argument to that effect

@  Pennpenn : (14 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

To Arazyr- I don't see why it wouldn't be.

Cause with the Marvel movies still going strong, marvel is more relevant than ever?

Valid thought.

 

So why did it take them a decade to make a new title in the series, and why exclusive at all, never mind to the switch. You'd think they would have jumped on it and done a tie in to civil war or something, or even around iron man 2 when it was becoming obvious that it wasn't going to die.

Becuase UA2 didn't do well, and that tends to strike the death knell for many game series, then we got the flawed re-remasters that must of sold well enough for them to do this. It's the same thing Megaman went through. Capcom thought its popularity was waning, releases the legacy collections learn 'hey people still want this' and now we got Megaman 11.

Eh, it looks like it's that terrible VR thing from Steam.

 

I suppose the emulation is fine, but they've bogged it down with an absolutely asinine virtual bedroom:

Wait, when did they add mod support?  I thought they weren't planning on it...

 

 

This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen.

 

Sega can't ever not screw anything up, can they?

The sad thing is, I bought it on Steam a while back and the emulator works really well.  And when I bought it, it just had a simple and functional menu interface where you selected the game you wanted and could adjust options and whatnot... then at some point they suddenly added this whole obnoxious, poorly optimized VR bedroom interface which just made it near unusable on my PC, because the framerate would just tank with how badly done it was.  And why?  The only thing I can guess is, because they added it around the time that all those VR games were coming out for Sony and Steam's VR headsets, to cash in on the VR buzz.

 

It's dumb and pandering and just bad interface design.

 

Edit: I just fired it up, since I never uninstalled it, and apparently they've added the ability to use the basic launcher as an option, which is nice and if the Switch version has that, I might consider picking it up, but if they stick you with the dumb VR room, then they can hug off.

I have no idea how skyrim switch has or installs mods. But check the nexus: an entire section for the switch itself with a fair bit of quality of life stuff.

Yeah, looking into it, apparently it's not at all official.  Which is fine.  I don't think I'd have the space for properly modded Skyrim anyway and the Switch version is just too buggy to play vanilla, hence why I traded it in for something that didn't break every time I played it.

Alright, my let's go pikachu and pokeball showed up a week ahead of what canada post said! I haven't even started anything yet, but I already like the weight and sounds from the pokeball. I had to plug it in to charge (despite nintendo products having amazing batteries and almost always coming with a 75% or greater charge in them.) cause of the instructions.

 

Edit: the pokeball has a TOP button? There's the other half of the control scheme! Neat!

Got a Switch for xmas and have been REALLY ejoying it...the portability thing, getting to play Omensight on the go is awesome.

 

Zelda: BOTW is GORGEOUS and fun...but i have one HUGE complaint. When you save, and youre, say, in the snowy part of the beginning game, wandering around with your lit torch, having also lit fires...and you load your game, your Torch is out and the fires are gone...that is kinda total BS...there is no reason for the game to not load you exactly as you were when you saved. that is totally one of tbose "artificial difficulty" things.

 

Mario Oddessy is also SUPER fun. Love it so much...and i found it playably easy, but kind of short. Whoch i totally do not mind. 

 

One question about Mario: What are those "metal" cubes that show up on every level...what are they for and what do they do? (i dont mind spoilers, im just really curious =] )
