(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

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)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*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.

Anyone else excited?

Only been waiting 20 odd years for this. Not 100 % sure about the cartoony look yet but the animations are nice. I guess Sega saw the success of Sonic Mania and are trying somehting similar.

Hope Adam is playable. I imagine they'd add Skate if anything though.

Hope Yuzo Koshiro is involved but I doubt it.

The dev teams have a solid history, and yeah, sure looks like Sega's banking on some of the same nostalgia-driven sales that helped fuel Sonic Mania.  I'm assuming a Switch version is practically guaranteed given how successful Sonic Mania was on that device.

 

Though I'm not sure ANYTHING is ever going to reach the sublime brilliance of Double Dragon Neon.

I am looking forward to this, definitely.  It is a genre that has been pretty sparse of good games for a while.

 

The next thing that came to mind was that I also want a sequel to Double Dragon Neon. Had the most fantastic end credits song ever (beating out Portal and FFIX).  Song is even on my playlist at work.

Don't you mean Max Thunder, PiratedTVPro?  Mike Hagger will not be in this game as he is owned by Capcom, not Sega.

 

And I'm okay with the cartoony style, especially since this is being made the same team behind the remake of Wonder Boy:  The Dragon's Trap.

Let SoR4 play its story straight as usual, I think. I'd rather not have another classic franchise shift into 'tongue-in-cheek laugh-a-minute' humor. :hmm

 

Also, I'm liking the vibrant, comic book-style look. The game came out in the 90s when that style was pretty prevalent - no need to 'gritty' it up.

I didn't think about that until you mentioned it. Hahahaha!



Anyway, the stage boss is named Shiva and makes an energy duplicate of himself. Is he from the old game?

Yes, he is, as in the second game, he was the boss before Mr. X.

The last playable character is a cyborg? From the silhouette.

I played one of the Streets of Rage but not a huge fan. But I really dig this artstyle.

Could be, and some people are saying it could be Zan from the third game.  But looking at the design, it could be a new character entirely.

Shiva was in all 3 games. The first 2, he is the guy just before the final boss. The 3rd game he was the first boss, and then a secret playable character. and he was frickin awsome.

He wasn't in sor1. He is awesome though, I was so excited that I could play as him in sor3. I think he was supposed to a transgender in the Japanese version?
I want to play as Adam dammit, not his kids.
