Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

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

I knew I forgot something!

Aang has totally killed people before. In the avatar-state he killed Commander Zhao at the end of season 1.


Actually that was the Ocean Spirit, acting entirely on its own, after having separated itself from Aang. It drops him off before going after Zhao.

Although, it does seem kinda unlikely that no one died when they were still merged and taking out the Fire Navy fleet...

Anyone who thinks Azula didn't get what's coming to her and needed to see her in jail, think about what was happening to her just before she took on Zuko.

Ironbite-she was beaten well before that Agni Kai.

I mentioned over on another forum that despite enjoying the series, the ending with Aang and Ozai was kind of cheesy and deus ex machina. HIGHLIGHT to view:
pulling the avatar state out again, which I thought he couldn't do again. and then the hero comeback with the auras and the lion-turtle dialog that was completely new. ok. unbendable spirit. gotcha. ("unblock my chakra by some normally complex mental and spiritual process. right, done.")


He was never unable to use the Avatar State, it's just that he didn't want to use it because if he died in Avatar State there would be no more Avatars.

No. As Aang explained in "The Day of Black Sun," when Azula shot him with lightning at the end of season two, his seventh chakra was blocked, and he couldn't go into the Avatar State anymore. It got unblocked during the fight with Ozai when the wound from the lightning bolt was pierced.

Plus at least from my point of view it was clear before "Day of Black Sun" that Aang had lost the ability to enter the Avatar State. That was one of two ways to take the sequence at the end of season 2; either he had lost the Avatar State by losing the spiritual connection to all the previous Avatars, or he had died and the cycle was broken.

For God's sake, this is ridiculous. The Avatar finale was so good, I actually can't bring myself to bother watching any of the assorted DVDs I have sitting in my "to watch" pile, or to play the new games I got for my DS or Wii in the last couple of days. AVATAR HAS RUINED ENTERTAINMENT FOR ME.

On Friday, I went to see The Dark Knight, which was pure excitement in itself. Then on Saturday, I watched the Avatar series finale.

Talk about "over stimulated". I don't think I'm going to sleep again for a week; I still haven't calmed down.

The entire score was wonderful, and that was the most amazing part of it. Instead of Awesome Fight Scene Music, it was something haunting and sad. Because they're brother and sister and they're trying to kill each other, and its a tragedy.

Good crap, I never even thought of that. The Dark Knight hasn't come out over here yet - I've still got that ahead of me! I'll be all, like, just about nearly calmed down after Avatar, and then WHAM!

Speaking of this, the Track Team -- the guys who did all the music in Avatar -- have added three tracks from the finale score to their MySpace page, including that one.

Exactly, it was very fitting. The whole situation made you feel sorry for Azula and dislike the Phoenix King even more for setting that type of situation up, however unintentional it was.

Indeed. The way in which they successfully rendered Azula as a sympathetic figure, not as an evil monster but just an incredibly damaged child, was amazing, and really the biggest surprise about the finale to me.

The Avatar panel had a huge lack of new information, aside from the fact that the finale director had actually scripted Zuko seeing his mother before Michael Dimartino killed it. Future stuff was not really confirmed one way or another.

That was a joke epilogue the creators showed at... some convention a while back. Forget which one.
