His one shots and two or three parters are great. But...Dark Age got a little long in the tooth. Not bad, but not my favorite.

@  ZakuConvoy : (20 January 2019 - 07:40 PM)

For me, it's less the delay, and more that Astro City is always best in smaller chunks. The longer story arcs (which is what the OGNs sound like they're aiming for), while not bad, are far from the high points of the series.

@  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*

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2019 - 02:24 AM)

It's too hot here.

@  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.

First off, can a mod please close or lock the previous two polls?

 

----

 

Alright, Tonight around 7pm will be my stream of Sonic Generations, and will run for about 3 hours.

Sunday will be Transformers: War For Cybertron, also starting around 7pm and I'm hoping to at least beat the Decepticon Campaign.

Tuesday's midday stream will be Little Inferno. Since it is a short game I should be able to do it all in one sitting.

Next Friday, I am aiming to beat the rest of War for Cybertron's single player campaign. I'll get back to Sonic Generations in September since its a longer game.

Next Sunday will be of course whatever my followers vote for.

-----

Now for the games for next Sunday's vote:

Since I get comments about 'not knowing some/all of the games' I've decided to provide links for each game, so that if you don't have a clear favorite for me to play you can vote for whatever you think looks the most interesting.

Fallout New Vegas – all DLC - http://store.steampo...ck/app/2028016/
Life Is Strange - Episode 1- http://store.steampo...eck/app/319630/
Citizens of Earth - http://store.steampo...com/app/258910/
Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition - http://store.steampo...eck/app/211420/
The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition - http://store.steampo....com/app/32360/
X-Com: Enemy Unknown - http://store.steampo...eck/app/200510/
Jade Empire - http://store.steampo...d.com/app/7110/
The Bard's Tale - http://store.steampo....com/app/41900/
Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2 - http://store.steampo...com/app/208580/
L. A. Noire - http://store.steampo...eck/app/110800/

----

Also before anyone asks: Why KOTOR2? Because it was recently and massively updated in Steam, including Steam Workshop options, so this will have mods such as cut content and better graphics. As I've only played the original sloppy and rushed retail version, this will be something new and unique for me as this will be a play-through of the hopefully superior version of the game. Also maybe potentially raising awareness that its gotten these updates.

This thing just will not let me comment.

 

This boss looks worse than Biolizard. Omochao is annoying but for this boss ii can see why it might be needed.

 

ooh, I like this level. (Speed Highway)

 

That frigging GUN truck.   :D

 

Sonic Heroes was boring as heck.

 

I love how that Sonic 06 level trolls the player. They knew everyone wanted to get that level over with and forget that game happened.

I don't know how many of these I could make it to. Sunday night is usually family night. But since you seem to be recording the streams...an eventual Mass Effect stream might be kinda cool...1,2 or 3.

I think atm I only have ME2 on my computer, and I don't yet know how to stream my PS3. They're possibility but probably a 'next year' thing.

 

Sunday is my 'big stream', as Saturday too friends have obligations then. Tomorrow I'll be doing Little Inferno, either mid day or evening, not sure yet. Then Friday night I'll be doing the rest of WFC Single player campaign. As mentioned in a previous thread, Next month is more 'pot luck' with just random games I wanna play, October is Halloween Theme month, November is Fallout Month (First week is gonna be Tactics, as I've never played it, and the rest is going to be FO4) December... not sure, possibly more FO4 alternated with potential Christmas-y/wintery games. (Might be doing Saints Row 4's Christmas DLC as one of the Shorter games, and if I get it, probably Visceral Clean Up Santa's Workshop.)

So the new schedule will be:

 

8/28: WFC - Autobot Campagin

8/30: Secret of Monkey Island

Yeah, from here on out, I'm gonna reduce things to 5 choices. See if that helps things any.

 

I'm thinking next month is gonna be more or less 'point and click adventure month' somewhat starting with Monkey Island and Fridays being Life if Strange. Sundays will still be fans choice, and Tuesdays will be mostly some quirky games since Little Inferno went over well, and most of them are PnCA types like Monkey Island.

 

October I have something special with my first crossover, which will be hosted on their stream for several reasons and be exclusively on Saturdays, so October I'll be doing 4 streams a week.
