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.

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)

@  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.

Woot! Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age was announced about 20 minutes before my daughter was born, so I am a little late posting this, but I am stoked to see an official announcement. 

 

 

Anyone else excted to see a new main line numbered Dragon Quest game come to consoles for the first time in 13 years!

Really hoping we get a good voice cast. VIII so far has been the only one other than the original to really hook me, and a lot of it was do to the vocals from each of the characters.... well except the hero :D

Great news! I'm still torn on DQX. On the one hand, I hate that it didn't arrive here. On the other hand, FFXI consumed so much of my time that I really don't want to get sucked into another MMORPG.

 

I'm curious about which version(s) will be localized. I'm not sure which one(s) I want more. I want to immediately go with the console version, just for the presentation and big screen experience. I actually really like being able to play the whole series on 3DS though, and that split screen 3D/2D overhead aspect is something I really appreciate.

That's something I have a bit of a bone to pick with with DQX, and FFXI and XIV. It just annoys me that these MMO's are part of the main line of games.I'd wish they had kept them as the start of a new Online series of numberings instead of in the main series. What happens one day when the servers get shut down for DQX or FFXI. You won't be able to go back and play them again. So if you wanted to play the full series there will be one or two that just won't be possible some day.

I'm also not a fan of MMOs as main-series entries for DQ or FF. Dragon Quest XI looks wonderful, though. I really hope we get the 3DS version in NA.

There's not really a "one day" to it. As poorly received as FFXIV was on launch (I did play it then, and it really was disappointing), it appears to have ended up with a really neat storyline and concluding event. Unfortunately, there's no way to ever play through that scenario again following the shutdown and relaunch. That's the biggest thing aside from lack of time that's helped me not get back into XIV. I know there's a significant chunk of content to the game that's simply unplayable. Not being able to experience the full story helps keep me from getting invested into the idea of playing it again going forward.

I can't imagine them not bringing over both the PS4 and 3DS versions. Heck, we will probably get a version for the switch if they can get the kinks worked out on it.

So...the good news is that Dragon Quest XI is coming out September 4 on the PS4.  It'll even have voice acting and a couple of improvements over the Japanese version.

 

Bad news is no 3DS version (boo!).  And the Switch version won't be out for a long while.

Bleh. I was uncertain whether I wanted to go with the 3DS version or the Switch version. I haven't picked up a PS4 yet, and it doesn't look to be coming in the near future with payments for my wife's student loans starting up last month. Guess I'll just have to wait and hope they don't cancel the Switch version.

The last couple DQ games I played were the most recent ones for the 3DS. I never did finish either of them before getting the Switch and retiring the 3DS. So a new mainline game that's not an MMO will be nice to get into.

I think the last one I actually finished was IX...that was the DS one with the train, right? Wow! I just said DS instead of 3DS. I didn't realize it had been that long!

DQ7 and DQ8 were remastered and released on the 3DS in the last couple of years. DQXI has a 3DS version, but it looks like it will only be coming out in Japan. Too bad as it had a neat gimmick where the Bottom Screen was a SNES version of the game and the top screen was the 3DS version of the same game.

Well, the Ps4 has 3 other great Dragon Quest games, so I would highly recommend getting a PS4 for those alone.
