(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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

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)

what next? YELLOWSTONE?

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

Thanks, dead person.

@  Bass X0 : (01 July 2020 - 05:06 AM)

congratulations to all survivors of the first half of 2020.

@  -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)


@  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.

I was always more of a Final Fight fan. Never even played Streets of Rage until the Genesis collections started popping up. But seeing as how there hasn't been very many old style beat em ups lately, I may just have to give this one a chance.

This is cool! I wonder if they'll let you call in a SWAT Car to launch a missile strike in it.


Streets of Rage 1 and 2 were my jam back at college co-oping with a friend.

Floyd looks cool.  Looks like he was inspired by Jax (especially since he says "Gotcha!"), but has other moves, including the ability to turn one of his arms into a blaster a la Cyborg of Teen Titans fame.

I think making him so much like Jax is a bit silly. I can see why they did a mix of Zan and max but I would rather have had one of them.
Game looks great though, and they got yuzo koshiro! Amazing

I did.  It’s an attractive, but fairly standard belt brawler.  They added buttons for a “back attack” and to pick up items.  Options exist for a variation of the original 3 button scheme from the Genesis days.  I have relatively limited experience with the series, just some quick play time with the first 3 through the numerous Sega collections.  So I don’t have the nostalgia, and the SoR mechanics never gelled with me after playing Capcom’s efforts or Konami’s for that matter.  I thought the older titles felt a bit clunky in relation to the competition of the era.


I did a quick burn through with Axel.  Feels fairly faithful to the older games in terms of “feel”, but I’m hardly an expert on that matter.  It has great character designs, and the graphics have a nice pop to them (with a TON of options to adjust the game’s visual to your preference, even on the Switch version).  Music is pretty solid as well, as well as the sounds.  Gameplay kind of falls apart though.

I’ll try different characters, but Axel felt slow.  There is an inconsistency in terms of what environment elements impact you and your enemies, and I found myself being juggled through the air based on what enemies where throwing.  There was also inconsistency in terms of whether gaps will take a life or just some health.  About the only notable gameplay improvement I’ve seen is the ability to combo after using your life draining specials to regain health.  Presentation is serviceable, but fairly bland.  Outside of the intro cinematic, story sections unfold through stills and text.  No voice acting aside from in game battle sounds, which is sad given the the direction of similar games the last few years.

I do give props for the sheer volume of unlockables, including classic boss encounters (with retro graphics).  The completion of my run with Axel unlocked his SoR1 form for use in game, and I’m assuming the other characters have similar unlocks.


It’s...not bad.  But it still feels like an old-style brawler, with all the good and bad that comes with that.  Long time fans will love it, but more casual fans might be just as happy with one of the assorted belt brawler collections (or eShop offerings like the criminally underrated Night Stalkers).  For my money, Double Dragon Neon or (more recently) River City Girls do more to evolve the genre with a LOT more personality.


Switch performance was great.  If there were any drops below 60 FPS, I couldn’t tell, and fidelity looked to be on par with the other consoles (barring any 4K shenanigans).  It looked like all the graphics options were also available.  So, if deciding on platform, the Switch version is completely viable.


But I’d rather play River City Girls
