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?

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.

War. War never changes. Nor does our wish for there to at long last an announcement for a new Fallout game from Bethesda. There has been waiting and there have been hoaxes, but the dream is still alive. The Official Fallout Facebook page has posted a link to their website with a cryptic countdown message that ticks off in less than 24 hours from now.

 

PA system failure has occured.
Shutdown of the Masterbrain has been authorized and all sensitive materials have been removed for security purposes.
Please attempt re-access. Have a pleasant day
.

 

Whether this is Fallout 4 (or 5, depending on how you count New Vegas) or something else entirely won't be known until tomorrow. Keep your Pipboy tuned in to The Allspark for the latest updates and be sure to discuss in our forums.

There's some reference to "Institute" in the java script code so it's likely that the rumors of it being set at MIT are accurate.

I knew this was coming for awhile, there have been a lot of signs if you pay attention to the right places.

Yeah, but to say "It's been coming for a while" is discounting the fact that there has been rampant speculation, rumors and hoaxes about an announcement for the past 5 years.

 

This is the first official flag raised by Bethesda so until today, nothing was fact.

As far as I'm concerned "Bethesda is making Fallout 4 after Skyrim" was basically fact regardless of hoaxes and what not.

It's as obvious as saying "There will be a Call of Duty game next year".

Noticed that too, huh? Maybe going to bring Tactics into full canon?

 

Regardless, between this and XCOM 2 the writing is on the wall: I need a new Computer.

 

Also - relevance:

 

 

Were it not for Fallout (One, not Three), I'd never know about this wonderful band. The Ink Spots are also one of those bands that can take the exact same beat and craft entirely different songs from them. Seriously, the opening is the same for all their tunes.

 

 

"We Three" ought to be Fallout 4's theme.

Um...not to badger semantics, but Humanity is the only race represented in the Fallout Universe. Unless you want to be a Deathclaw.

 

Ghouls are the unfortunate byproduct of radiation (and, depending on what lore you're using, "Wild" FEV), and Super Mutants are FEV-born...and ought to be a vanishing breed. Regardless, both are still ultimately Human. Heck, The Master's whole reasoning behind the Unity was to unite Humanity and prevent another global apocalypse.

Yeah so anyways I kinda want choices here.  I want to play a Super-Mutant, i want to play a Ghoul.  Hell, if we got to the Commonwealth, we can have androids.  There's some very valid gameplay balances you can have as well that won't make it such a chore.

Only thing I hope about this is that Bethesda took some notes from Obsidian and makes it closer to New Vegas than 3 in regards to story and choices.

Other than that, fairly excited.

Ghouls are more analogs to minorities persecuted in pre-war days, but yeah that's one of the general themes. Though Super Mutants kind of took a different track in Fallout 2/New Vegas, with the efforts to move beyond the Master. Honestly, it'd be neat to see a West Coast Super Mutant turn up in the East to help guide the Eastern batch to something beyond "Find FEV and make more mutants".

I want something that is more of a good blend of both. Both 3 and NV had good and bad elements to them... and generally those elements are polar opposites. 3 had a strong sense of exploration and being able to do anything and go anywhere; NV limits much of this for the first half of the game with you HAVING to follow the same path to New Vegas each time or run into enemies that will kill you before you can blink. which imo lowers replayablility as you're going to get bored of traveling that highway 5 times to get every ending. 3 has a very basic and straight forward story, its not that great, but it's not really 'bad' either. NV focuses everything on its storytelling and character giving a much stronger narrative and focusing what you can to to keep the plot at the forefront until you get to New Vegas.

 

If 4 could blend 3's sense of exploration and NV's storytelling, it could be a really great game.
