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.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

@  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?

@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.

I've got more than a few video games that I've wanted to play for a while - and a few more that I've wanted to play all the way through - but simply haven't had the time due to work and other projects. Nothing to be done about it, alas.

I've been wanting to do a chronological playthrough of every Kingdom Hearts HD rerelease before KH3 comes out.

 

As of today, I am currently still on Chain of Memories, Sora's story. :wtf

 

And that's not mentioning the chronological run of Resident Evil and Metal Gear that I also want to do, as well as the other games I've started a while back but have yet to finish: Gravity Rush 2, Gundam Breaker 3, Dynasty Warriors 8 XL, Samurai Warriors 4... :doh

I'm doing okay video game wise...mostly because I've lost all interest in a bunch of the games I was going to play. I mean, so much so that I went back to do yet another playthrough of Mass Effect Trilogy followed with Dragon Quest XI along with DQI and DQV on iPad. You know you care hugall about your game backlog when you're going through all the old JRPG's along with a new JRPG.

Though I think I do have quite the backlog for Netflix. I've given up on Person of Interest. I'm wanting to get through the final season of Voltron. I seem to remember having started the Pokemon Sun&Moon series. I hear Titan's should be coming state-side eventually.

I'd bet 25% of my DVD collection is full of videos I haven't gotten around to.  Maybe 5% of the audiobooks I've purchased are the same (usually books that sounded good & were on sale on Audible, but aren't part of series I follow).  And it'd be worse if I didn't listen to Audiobooks during work.

 

I've got a good number of digital books that I haven't read too.  As for physical books, I've got a number of Paranoia XP rulebooks, as well as the 1st edition rulebook that I've been meaning to read, but just haven't gotten around to it.

 

And yeah, I've got enough spare time, that I could watch something new regularly, but I tend to let myself get overwhelmed by it all.

I feel like I have a pretty significant game backlog:

Kirby Star Allies (stuck on Boss Rush)

Octopath Traveler (half-way through)

Transformers: Devastation

Lightning Returns

Bayonetta 1 and 2

 

I only have about an hour, at most, a day to put to games, not nearly enough to dent most of these x_x

Do any of you ever make impulse purchases of new items or media knowing full well that your backlog is already too big, yet you do so anyway because they're discounted at what seems like an irresistible price?

I've been a hair behind on books in the last two years because with three kids multiple dogs and a job there's always something that needs doing here and when I get into a book I shut down and do nothing else till it's done, and I feel too guilty doing that when there's constantly so much else that needs doing. Same reason I've gotten super into Pocasts the last few years. I can listen to a good Podcast while I get other stuff done.

I DO have a big video game back log right now. My wife got me the latest Tomb Raider and Assassins Creed for the XB1 for Xmas and then the next day my parents gave me a PS4 with Spider-man and then the day after that my wife went out and bought God of War, the newest Monster Hunter, Horizon: Zero Dawn and the latest Dragon Quest for the new system. So far I'm 25% through Spider-man and have not touched the others.

-ZacWilliam, not gonna need a new game for Soooo long...

My backlog is huge.  A bunch of games I need to play, some dating back to the PS2-3 era when I was spending too much time on WoW.

 

My anime DVD/BD collection has probably a good 50-60% that I have not watched yet, some dating back to the early 2000's.  When you have as many as I do, that is months of continuous watching to do.  Then again, at least now they come in full and half seasons, instead of 4-8 DVDs per season, so space is much better for the newer stuff.

 

Most of the LEGO and model figures I have bought in the past few years are still in boxes.

 

A lot of these I am waiting to tackle until I get my own place (hopefully in the next few months), so that is a plus.

My main backlog is DVDs yet to watch from Christmas, plus three Pringles tubes to eat through and I got one and a half Manga books to read through (One piece volumes 87 & 88)

 

On the TF side, there's a couple of Seige figures I want to get but I'm kind of waiting for the moment, along with plans to buy the most resent Studio series Optimus Prime and Jetfire, but I'm not going all out on Studio series as I'm not a big fan of the movies desgins, example, Starscream, no matter how I look at him, I can't help but think Gorllia or fatso, I know some would argue about the mass displacement thing, but I can't help but think its a bad desgin, much like how I dislike ROTF leader Megatron desgin and it took TLK for another movie Megatron to join the ranks of my collection.

I'm sure some of you know what I mean.  After a while, your collection of movies, TV shows, books, comics and video games exceeds the amount of time or energy that you have to consume it all and then it just keeps growing and growing to a point where you can no longer decide what to read/watch/play next.  Or am I the only one with this problem?

Movies - I'm going to be alternating between new releases and older films for my movie review column for the next while, meaning I *have to* watch 2 - 3 movies a month from my backlog. If it's a physical disc and I don't like it, it's going out the door, either to E-Bay or Goodwill. If it's on iTunes, I'm deleting it once I can figure out how after the latest updates. 

 

Books - Slowly starting back to chipping away at everything. 

 

Comics - Ditto.

I have like five custom projects sitting around that I want to finish, but media-wise I am fine. I tend to watch favorites repeatedly anyway.

I mostly gave up video games back in the early 2000s, but I do have Skyrim with lots of unfinished quests on the Switch. I guess you can count that, but I don't feel compelled to finish video games either. I am not particularly goal-oriented.
