i wish theyd dub double zeta. thats the only one im missing for the "amuro vs char" thing (and chars not even in it so...). but given some of the things ive heard about it, its probly best that they dont dub it

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:02 PM)

and im on vacation next week so ill have lots of time to watch all this lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 11:01 PM)

@zaku ive got war in the pocket on standard dvd already. amazon didnt have it on blu ray. bonus points to it for having character designs by haruhiku mikimoto. and this collecction is only "new" in as much as its new to me on blu ray. ive had burnt dvd copies of it all for years

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 09:44 PM)

Yeah, 00 was pretty good, and I recently watched Build Divers, and found it really fun. Got both limited editions of IBO... still need to watch them...

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:30 PM)

00 is also pretty good, basically a refined version of the Wing concept, and IBO is great.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 April 2019 - 08:29 PM)

I'll be the requisite "Build Fighters is actually pretty good" chime in

@  MEDdMI : (24 April 2019 - 07:52 PM)

G Gundam was the best. Horse mecha! Piloted by.... a HORSE!

@  ZakuConvoy : (24 April 2019 - 07:31 PM)

I'd probably recommend tracking down 0080 War in the Pocket to go along with your new collection, but you might have enough to watch for right now.

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:53 PM)

G Gundam will likely always rank first for me, as it is the one I find the most fun, but 8th MS was great for being the most "realistic" of the UC stuff.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:17 PM)

the only other gundam series ive watched-which was also the FIRST gundam series i watched-is wing (and ill probly get that on blu ray soon too). i know i havent watched everything tied to it, but the UC is quite enough for me lol

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 06:14 PM)

i think 8th team is my favorite, but cant say why. maybe it has something to do with them not being newtypes. i dont particularly like that concept

@  Xellos : (24 April 2019 - 06:11 PM)

8th M Team, 0083, and Zeta are my favorites of the original timeline. Have yet to watch Origin, but it is loooow on my list, as I never particularly liked Char. Quattro Bajeena was actually kinda cool, though.

@  Telly : (24 April 2019 - 05:49 PM)

so i just did something insane. i bought gundam origin, first gundam, 08th ms team, operation stardust, zeta gundam AND chars counterattack on bluray...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 April 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Hollywood stereotypes, eh? Don't get me started on how sheerly unrealistic that can be, and how badly Hollywood loves to stick to them.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:44 PM)

Also, fun fact: To me, Dutch is the language that sounds harsh compared to German.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:37 PM)

Generally, nobody shouts at each other in Germany unless they're either a) morons or b) doing it for comedic effect.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:36 PM)

... based on an outdated way of speaking (I mean, does anyone in the US still speak like Joe Friday?)... which might also have been at least partially a regional thing.

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Generally, many native English speakers' primary conception of the German language and its perceived harshness comes from Hollywood movies... created by non-native German speakers, with non-native German actors giving their impression of what they think the German language sounds like...

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2019 - 05:33 PM)

I might be severely biased, but as a native German speaker, I think the perception of the "harsh German language" is at least in part due to a myth created by Hollywood.

Would I be jaded if i said that's a good lesson about people as well?

@  CORVUS : (23 April 2019 - 09:01 PM)

Overstated risk. Most observations of sexual cannibalism in the Praying Mantis occurred in captivity, versus nature. When entomologists began observing them in nature instead, they found that sexual cannibalism took place around 30% of the time. Basically, if a male Mantis avoids thin, hungry females, his chances are pretty good. #yesimanerd

@  Nevermore : (23 April 2019 - 05:20 PM)

Don't we all want to get laid?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 April 2019 - 04:53 PM)

I'd spend the first few loops just taking an extended nap.

@  Dekafox : (23 April 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Endless death time loops certainly happen enough in Star Trek

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 03:50 PM)

That's not what I had in mind but if that is what you would do in that scenario then that is pretty messed up. I would not want to be stuck in a perpetual loop of death. More like getting laid but that is just me.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 April 2019 - 01:58 PM)

Happy death day to you!

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 01:45 PM)

.... I would love that. To be stuck in an endless loop where no one remembers what happened... The possibilities :D

@  ZakuConvoy : (23 April 2019 - 01:43 PM)

Are you stuck in a Groundhogs Day situation? Because if you are, you need to tell the rest of us so we can take advantage, too.

@  Kayla Kaon : (23 April 2019 - 11:10 AM)

Lol today needs to end asap so that I can start over tomorrow

@  Ashley : (21 April 2019 - 10:08 PM)

They frequently do, but yeah there's no rule. Google will usually answer it for a specific restaurant, though

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 April 2019 - 02:57 PM)

Depends on the restaurant and the area. There's no universal rule about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2019 - 02:41 PM)

I thought restaurants were one of the few things that stayed open on holidays, along with movie theatres and the like

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 April 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Well here I am hungry on a Sunday afternoon and I head to Chipotle only to find out right then and there that the place is closed for Easter. Yay.

@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

I don’t see how the Switch’s 3rd party support is any better than the Wii U’s. EA only announced 1 game coming for the console, FIFA 19. It's also not getting KH3 or RDR2. All it's really getting is ports of last-gen games

Check out the Switch's E-Shop for the answer to that question. The fewer EA games released, the better.

I don't consider EA to be the be-all end-all of 3rd party support.

 

And I'm not sure you realize just how dire Wii U's third party support was. There's a lot of low-to-mid tier western studio working on Switch titles, even if the biggest AAA hitters aren't there. Plus it is getting significant Japanese support.

 

The Wii U was a wasteland in comparison.

 

I'm going to be playing Paladins on Tuesday, for example - which while not Overwatch wouldn't have even been a pipe dream for Wii U, even if it had the specs for it. As well as the rumored, and all but assured Fortnite port likely to be announced at the Nintendo Direct.

The Wii U was the console nobody wanted. I'm still baffled why Nintendo thought it was a good idea.

The Wii U, from what I can tell in retrospect, is as close to the Switch as they could get with available tech/means at the time. The Switch was the end goal, and the Wii U was the stepping stone to it.

 

I'm not saying it was a great idea to not wait until it was viable, but Nintendo has a tendency to try things too early and come back to it when it's workable, I've noticed. Virtual boy to 3DS, Powerglove to Wii. Wii U to Switch (even if that was merely a generation apart)

Port of a last-gen game, port of an old game, Mega Man 11 is a retro style game, see Skyrim. I'll give you Fortnite, though.

 

Switch isn't getting stuff like COD, Madden, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Monster Hunter World, or DBZ Fighters.

"Indie Games nobody but hispters care about" vs Yearly Shooter, Yearly Sportsball, Action Title whose last outing underperformed financially, Effectively a MMO whose architecture isn't compatible, and finally a fighting entry that everyone presumes is going to make its way to Switch eventually, it's just that the Switch was announced too late in the game's development cycle to warrant an immediate port.

 

The era of the mindless Nintendo hate is long since over, man. Switch is the first Nintendo platform I've owned since the N64 and I couldn't be happier with it. There's plenty in the pipeline yet and the indie gaming scene is where the real innovations to the genre are happening. Call of Duty certainly doesn't shake the foundations of the gaming industry. Heck, the last shooter to do that was id's DOOM in 2016...and that was basically stripping out every FPS mechanic of the past twenty years and returning the genre to its arcadey roots.

Frankly, not having any AAA games makes the Switch a better system than all the others at this point. The entire AAA industry is in the toilet and run by people who have never given a shit about the medium they work in and just see it as a path to easy money. Every single goddamn game anymore is built around squeezing every last penny out of "whales" with a glorified gambling system. That is, when the companies haven't abandoned video games altogether in favor of running literal gambling parlors in their home country, while still holding their beloved IPs hostage purely as a middle finger to their fans.

 

Let them burn, I say, along with anyone who still supports them by buying their garbage.

I still want to know why when the PS3 and Wii U had similiar numbers .

Year one PS4: 3.61 Million

Thid Parties: Keep pumping out the games! We're going to make this a success damnit!

 

Year one Wii U: 3.45

 

Third Parties: NOT SELLING ENOUGH! HUG NINTENDO! STUPID PILE OF SHIT! PULL OUT PULL OUT PULL OUT!

 

Year one Switch:  4.8 million

Third Parties: Gotta prove it'll sell. (sales) STILL GOTTA PROVE IT'LL SALE! (Still sales even better!) STILL GOTTA MAKE SURE PEOPLE WILL BUY OUR STUFF! I MEAN.... Uh... HUG NINTENDO!

 

Year one PS4: 4.49 Million 

Third Parties: EVERYTHING ON PS4.

I mean, like it or not there is a stupid double standard.

Nintendo has a history of being unkind to third parties, dating all the way back to the beginning when they became the first platform to have honest-to-dog certification requirements and lockout hardware. It's just that they were enough of a juggernaut for their first two generations that everyone had to play ball regardless. Then along came the 64, which was genuinely more of a pain to work with than the competition due to its space limitations and the cost of producing cartridges, and support began to slip. By the time of the Wii, with its gimped rendering hardware, lack of HD output, and single analog stick, they'd had enough.

 

Now the tables have turned. It's Nintendo that has a really good, desirable product that would be dragged down by associating with the rest of the industry.

While true... The lack of these are what caused the video game crash in the first place.

And I love how people still bitch about how hard the N64 was to work with *And it was*, but people ignore the PitA that was the PS2 and PS3.

To be fair, Nintendo doesn't really need third parties that badly.  They have a monopoly on some of the most iconic, strongest selling legacy titles of all time.  They are the sole proprietor of Mario, Legends of Zelda and Pokemon, just to name three big ones off the top of my head.  Combine that with Smash and Mario Kart and they have a hella strong base.  They also know how to sell for long term profit instead of investing bucket loads of money into a short term fads that may or may not work out.

While the switch is the best Nintendo system since the Snes, and has better 3rd party support than Nintendo has enjoyed in awhile, its 3rd party support still sucks. Thats fine, it has excellent 1st party support, and enough 3rd that its not a wasteland. Saying "who cares" or "good riddance" to AAA 3RD party stuff is pretty silly. You may not like them that much, but they are usually blockbuster games for a reason.
I finally got rid of that big white box.
