Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 10:31 PM)

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

Vegan meat needs bacon

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

Oh, it's not for lack of want that I don't have a PS4. I've been wanting one since it launched. Twice, I saved up money and almost pulled the trigger. The first time, they started talking about the PS4 Pro, so I decided to wait. The second time, I was all set to go, but then the BotW trailer dropped and magically reallocated those funds.

 

I'll get one eventually but now that my wife's student loans for her Master's have started to come due, I think it's going to be a ways off.

The Pro looks neat and all, but my Star Wars Theme regular PS4 still looks awesome to me. Although, I am told that the Pro will make this game even better, but I don't know if it would be worth the effort to get one for a slight upgrade.

I am eager to get this in tomorrow. Its nice to have a new console RPG not bogged with needless multiplayer functions that looks great.

Hoping it keeps my attention as well as VIII did. I love the series but have only ever gotten through the original and VIII.

This game is awesome! I am about 15 hours into it and I love it! It really is the true successor to Dragon Quest VIII! I will write up a full review after I get a little further into it.

That trailer makes me feel so nostalgic and also sad. I loved the DQ games all the way up to the ps1 era titles but around VIII was when I fell out of love with the series. Glad to see others are having fun with it all the same, but oof, it's bitter sweet to realize I both want to play and would hate playing the game.

Ack! It's already out? *sigh* Well I'm sure I'll get around to it. Still making my way through Mass Effect again and then Smash will probably be out by the time I'm done with that.

But I definitely want to get to this eventually. Dragon Quest games and I go way back.

Well, I am 35 hours into the game now and I am completely hooked!  I just got the entire party now, and swapped out Erik for Jade, so my party is Hero, Jade, Veronica, and Serena. I thought about swapping out Serena for Rab, but for now her stats are a little bit better than his.

That scene and the bit after was already pretty heart-touching, but that little coincidence made it special.

Man I sunk my entire Sunday into this. But I gotta say I was a bit irked that the intro basically spoils the entire party other than one late in the game.

But that mid game twist. I knew there was more left in the game but you get that feeling of being close to your objective just for everything to fall out from under you. It’s typical RPG twists in action but man I love how they portrayed it nonetheless.

I'm at the point with Predaking as well. However I'm wondering where he found his armor crafting recipes. I seem to be missing the specific one he mentioned earlier. But look at when I posted that and that was just before I went to bed after playing all Sunday :wtf

 

But man Sylv is both highly entertaining and embarrassing at the same time. I took off the outfit he gave the hero ASAP :D

I want to say that I found the Drusilian armor set recipe in the ruins of the town. Is that the one you are talking about?

 

 

I too took off the armor Sly gives you, even though it is slightly better than what I have, I want to keep that knightly look as long as possible.
