Huhn. Penny arcade was right, the division 2 is literally 3 dollars...

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2020 - 11:05 PM)

Oh, Wicked Cool Toys got the Halo toy license. This is a big year for Jazwares

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 February 2020 - 02:49 PM)

Makes you feel old, don't it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

Meh, just more game time.

@  Paladin : (14 February 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Valentine's day. Bummer.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

@  TriBlurr : (09 February 2020 - 11:58 AM)

Optimus looks like his Siege figure. Maybe this will be canon to the Transformers ongoing comic series at the moment.

@  Cyoti : (06 February 2020 - 05:13 PM)

iirc megatron ended up in equestria at the end of gi joe v tfs

@  wonko the sane? : (06 February 2020 - 05:02 PM)

I doubt megatron will fall for that friendship stuff.

My Little Pony/Transformers is really happening cool!

@  Paladin : (06 February 2020 - 12:49 PM)

I don't know...

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 February 2020 - 12:39 PM)

Okay, Mr. Burns. What's your first name?

@  Paladin : (06 February 2020 - 12:21 PM)

definitely not a sheep since goats are the ones that consume trash

 

Not really so much bad taste as it is bafflingly limited. Three of that list were released between 2004 and 5, one in 2002-ish and one in the 90's.

 

It's roughly the equivalent of Foffy's hypothetical person whose only anime exposure is Naruto but shifted back about a decade.

Why is it limited?? they just happen to be some of my faves who the frack cares when they where released

It would be like saying Super Metriod, Killer Instinct and Mario RPG could not be some of my favorite games because they where released in the 90s what kinda logic is that?

Who said anything about how they couldn't be your favorite anime? 

 

Your list is limited because anime is decades old, with thousands of titles and dozens of fantastic works in all genres. Some crossed the boundaries of weebdom to become acclaimed for their storytelling and sheer beauty of animation.  If this

squeaked into somebody's top 5, I'd conclude that they must not have watched a lot.

 

Like, sure, I love Dragon Ball and Jojo but I'd never put them into any top 5 lists aside from maybe broken anatomy.

Seems so.

 

It's weird - my biggest anime exposure window was during college and that coincided with Adult Swim airing Bebop and Trigun and SAC while I was watching fansubs of other things, so the things that have made an impression on me are heavily skewed to that section of time too. There have been other things that clicked with me since here and there, but I can't deny there's a thread. Like Baccano! was something I enjoyed quite a lot when I got to it a decade after it aired, but it feels like it would have fit right into that lineup.


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Everybody knows Kamichama Karin is gold.

 

 

who the frack cares when they where released

 

It's not good or bad, but it's something we can observe. Basically, the reasoning goes you have watched a bunch of anime after seeing your top 5 and not even one made an impression on you.


All that really matters is we could be friends

Looks to me like Tec is a fair weather fan who only watches stuff that got dubbed because it was similar enough to a Hollywood action movie to appeal to americans.


Nerds have always missed the point of the things they love in favour of obsessing over minutiae of the setting.
