Blugh, the english dub of BGC is atrocious.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I might need to update my software, or they face regional limitations, cause I found no evidence of either.

DUDE! Starcom and COPS are on Tubi too!

@  Steevy Maximus : (20 February 2020 - 09:29 PM)

Spiffy! The english dub of Bubblegum Crisis on Tubi. It's gotten so hard to find these oldies on modern streaming services.

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:34 PM)

Or do Japan's cultural values vary depending on exactly who you're trying to shut down?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Could it be that, perhaps, these different cultural values might lead to a different approach seeming appropriate?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Hm. Back when we were arguing about the Legends comic, I seem to recall being repeatedly told that Japan had different cultural values than the US (and therefore anyone who had a problem with anything at all was wrong to voice that opinion ever).

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:23 AM)

Plus, as much as I hate to admit it, every single anime character is built to suit the audience's tastes so they buy more merch/do other things that allow $$$ to flow in the production committees direction, so the authenticity is certainly not for representation's sake.

@  fourteenwings : (19 February 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Both those anime air at midnight and are aimed at a very specific audience in a whole other media landscape. Major projects have press releases about almost everything, and there are groups just waiting to pat anybody on the back for doing what they want (GLAAD, HRC, etc)

@  B-Fox : (19 February 2020 - 03:16 AM)

It's funny that a friggin' anime about zombie idols and an anime about a school of anthropomorphic animals can have really positive trans characters WITHOUT a press release about their inclusion in the series prior to the episodes airing or having the creators announcing it on social media and patting themselves on the back for doing a thing.

@  Paladin : (18 February 2020 - 08:43 PM)

vegan meat must taste delicious. they're grass-fed and regularly exercised....

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Vegans are better than kids if you don't talk to them. They'll keep the lawn trimmed anyway.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Do you want vegans? Because that's how you get vegans.

@  CORVUS : (18 February 2020 - 04:33 PM)

Hook up your sprinkler system to a canister of healthy organic carrot-juice. The kids won't be able to get off your lawn fast enough.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 February 2020 - 03:59 PM)

Just use the hose.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2020 - 03:52 PM)

Ask bing. It'll be a FAR more effective answer.

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

Google, how do I get those durned kids off my lawn?

@  TrnsfrmGod : (18 February 2020 - 03:26 PM)

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

I actually regret buying an Xbox 360 a decade or so ago.  The Wii wasn't living up to its sales with valid 3rd party support (seriously, even with the lesser hardware, a LOT of those games didn't even compare to Gamecube games in visual quality), so I opted to get "one of the other two".  I went with the Xbox 360 for its lower costs and stronger 3rd party support.

 

Years later...I'm feeling I probably should have ended up getting a PS3.  I feel it would have had stronger long term support, plus the PS One support and the fact the media function ultimately got better than the 360 offered.

About a decade back: I wound up getting rid of most of 8 and 16 bit gaming stuff. I was in the process of clearing out a LOT of shit, and the reason I decided to move the stuff was because I wasn't using it. It was sitting in a bin in a closet and had for a good long while.

 

I wound up going emulation and getting a retro trio since, but it's just not the same.

Yeah, see, I don't regret the time I put into my WoW account. Granted, I was never on there for as long as some (a piddly two years.) regardless of the changing fancies of popular culture. I had fun, and I could afford to have that fun.

I have similar regrets about the old computers I've chucked over the years. And the case of Commodore 64 disks that I stuck up in the attic, where they have almost certainly been subjected to temperatures beyond the range they warn you on the box to keep them in. Granted, most of them were pirated, because apparently the only person on earth who actually paid for Commodore 64 games was the guy who cracked and copied them, but a few (Pac-Man, Bristles, RoboCop) were legit. If nothing else, I'd have liked to be able to rip them and offer them to emulator sites, whose collections consist almost exclusively of cracked copies with those obnoxious HACKED BY DA LEET KREW splash screens at the beginning.

Letting people borrow stuff you never get back.

When I had to move to Oklahoma, I had to clear out a TON of stuff.  Among those things I felt I needed to sell off was a my collection of Dreamcast games.

 

It was the first console I bought FOR ME, and my local Shopko store was really good about cycling inventory so I ended up with a TON of games on the cheap.  I think the only games I ever payed full price for was Soul Caliber or maybe Sonic Adventure.  Every couple weeks I'd hit the store and grab some cheap Dreamcast game for $15 or so.

But it was a big collection with a LOT of the rarer games: Skies of Arcadia, Grandia 2, Shenmue, Record of Lodoss War, DOA2, Soul Caliber, Sonic Adventure, Tech Romancer, Power Stone, Marvel vs Capcom 1 AND 2, one of the Street Fighter 3 releases, Sega GT, Metropolis Street Racer, Project Justice, Zombie Revenge.  Even had all 3 Bleem! discs for Gran Turismo, Tekken 3 and Metal Gear Solid, and a copy of MGS at that.

 

Sold it all for pennies on the dollar to clear it out of the house.  Probably should have just sold off more of the toys considering where the toy industry has gone over the past 12 years.
