Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:35 PM)

Can't forget what you didn't know in the first place.

@  Patch : (27 June 2020 - 05:28 PM)

Ah yes, Overpower. Who could forget the expansion where they added a new stat and you had to re-collect your heroes all over again.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2020 - 04:20 PM)

Counterpoint, when was the last time you spent money on Overpower?

I think it is a stupid reason to keep Mai out but it's not like she would be a playable character. I'm pretty indifferent to it as is, but of all the characters to be excluded from the SNK lineup it is kinda sad for Mai to be the exclusion. I mean it makes some sense but then we have Bayonetta and Shulk in his skivies, Samus in a skin tight body suit, and more as playable characters. Can you even use the in game cameras to look at the other SNK background characters from other angles?

 

But on the actual character Terry is an excellent addition to Smash. I think other than his lousy recovery skills he's a pretty strong fighter. My only issues with him is he has trouble with multiple fighters surrounding him confusing his command inputs.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This Masahiro Sakurai interview excerpt sheds light on what the team would be up against if they tried to include Mai Shiranui in Super Smash Bros.

(Translation is from <a href="https://twitter.com/...urceGaming</a>,&quot;CERO and Palutenas Censorship&quot;) <a href="https://t.co/Oy7X1Ad1W5">pic.twitter.com/Oy7X1Ad1W5</a></p>&mdash; James Montagna (@JamesPopStar) <a href="https://twitter.com/JamesPopStar/status/1192262821653778432?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 7, 2019</a></blockquote> <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

 

I also believe this to be the reason why Mai was not in Ultimate.  CERO is stricter than the ESRB when it comes to certain content (hence why Mortal Kombat 11 was never released in Japan, due to CERO being strict with violence).  Also, people should know SNK has more popular characters than just Mai Shuranui.

 

Another reason for me to steer clear of the Smash fanbase,

I like Sakurai more and more each day.

 
So do I, but he did take a hit from that interview.
 
Both restrictions mentioned in the interview are silly but Sakurai's argument is more likely to convince CERO they need to police the violence in the game more, not the potential panty shots less. :doh
 
If I was going to worry about one or the other, it actually would be the panty shots.  I grew up in the American Midwest during the 80's and 90's; if the guys exposed to "gun violence" were as likely to murder someone as the guys exposed to sexually stimulating materials were likely to masturbate, the "gun apocalypse" would have already happened. XD*
 
Just like I'd probably worry about "Strong language" more because I've already seen how my six-year-old nephew just doesn't get it.  It ain't even swearing; just because his slightly older brothers would talk about "killing" each other in video games, he somehow got it into his head that it was appropriate to go all Bakugo and tell folks he was going to kill them when he meant he was going to defeat them in a game or contest. O_o
 
Addendum: No, I'm not trying to call these things moral equivalents.  Some folks care about all three things I just mentioned, some only one or two, and some none.  The point is, it isn't just "how bad" something is but "how bad the response" it generates is.

Heads up.  Four new spirits based on Pokemon Sword and Shield are hitting the Spirit Board until the 26th.

 

And as for Kevin and Lana being in Smash, I doubt that will happen.  Nintendo of Japan would probably never approve anything from the DiC cartoons.

Even when it comes to whether or not it is even remotely plausible, I'm of two minds on the matter.  An original Captain N and Lana character?  Almost certainly not happening.  An alternate color scheme for Palutena - who was possibly the inspiration for Lana - and a Mii Gunner with appropriately colored letterman jacket, zapper, and NES controller belt?  Even if there are rights and/or relevance-to-Japan issues, they might barely be generic enough to slip in.  But only just.

where there is a will theres a way he could found out a way

In a game where Bayonetta (an M rated game mind you) gets simi nude to pull off attacks in SBU

Mai being a background character on a stage from games rated T for ANY Fatal Fury or KoF Can NOT tax the rating of SBU

I repeat "ludicrous Japanese censorship standards".  Here's an article on it by Metro.  I'm not overly familiar with this site, but it aligns with what I read elsewhere but can no longer find because of lazy articles by better known gaming journalist websites just assuming the reasons were "obvious", and how those articles clutter up the search results. ¬_¬

 

If you don't want to read it, the short version is CERO gets its panties in a bunch if there is a chance players (maybe even hackers @[email protected]) can get a bunch of panty shots of characters.  No, really.  This is why characters like Palutena caused a hang up when added to previous Smash Bros. games but someone like Zero Suit Samus is fine.

Another Fire Emblem character, wooooo......


So Byleth from Three Houses comes out the 28th. His unique style has to do with utilizing each of the weapon styles from the series depending on direction tilt. Up is sword, side is spear, down is axe, and neutral is bow. And both male and female versions are available to play as.
