I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

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

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.

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."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  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.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

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"

Where was it said that the news of the lack of a Japanese track on the Blu-ray was a mistake? I heard that someone ripped it and said it's on there, but I haven't heard of anyone being able to access it through normal playback yet.


I'm just going off the tech report from the AVSForums. No idea why it would be included and possibly locked out intentionally though. I'd suspect it may simply be some sort of authoring mistake, as this has happened before with high-profile Warner releases (e.g. The Ultimate Superman Collection), and especially considering that the Special Edition DVD of GK includes both audio tracks.

QUOTE(Buster Darkwings @ Jul 4 2008, 07:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
Anyways you must've been reading a different animeondvd thread than I was. I remember one or two people expressing mild disappointment and one saying he would have preferred both languages (this is where I fell until I heard the clips and it sounded "off" like an anime dub to me instead of like TAS, so I'll probably stick with the Japanese track), but the vast majority said they would be watching it in English anyways or that it wasn't a deal breaker for them.


I'll admit, it's a pretty subjective choice of words describing that thread, but statements to the effect of "I wasn't that interested in the English audio", "This went from a possible buy to No way in hell" and "I wasn't going to buy this, just rent. Not that now either", just took me aback. The vast majority of people were indeed being sensible, but for the aforementioned comments, it simply seemed very odd to me that even the presence of the near-universally acclaimed definitive voice of Batman wouldn't be a primary selling point. I guess with Conroy involved, I never considered the potential (non-)inclusion of secondary audio tracks to be a deal-breaker for anyone, especially considering it's unlikely they grew up with the Japanese dub of Batman: TAS. Plus, with the move towards mono-language anime DVD releases, sometimes regardless of whether an English dub already exists, I'd have thought people would have given Batman an easier time. Clearly I'm mistaken, but regardless, it's all a fascinating learning experience to see as to how media content providers are expected to best please most of the audience most of the time.

QUOTE(Buster Darkwings @ Jul 4 2008, 07:15 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
There certainly wasn't anyone calling for a boycott or saying they had to watch Batman in the "original Japanese".


I wasn't intentionally suggesting anyone actually said that; it's a paraphrase of WW2 propaganda "You have never heard Shakespeare until you have heard him in the original German". It was further appropriated and paraphrased in Star Trek 6 for Klingons, etc. In other words, a slight jest, nothing more.

That's the first film on the disk called, "have I got a story to tell you" It's really good and pulls you into the movie pretty quickly. A few kids talking about when they saw the batman, and how each of them has a different impression of him.

It's a very cool movie.


That sounds like an episode of TAS.

I doubt the GK version will as great as the NBA one. "Legends of the Dark Knight" nicely homages many eras of Batman not just in art style but storytelling as well; which is one of the main reasons its so awesome.

Absolutely, although some out there were clearly looking forward to Tesshō Genda instead. When it was incorrectly reported that the Blue Ray edition didn't include the Japanese track, I have to admit I found the (disturbingly predictable) reactions on the AnimeOnDVD forums pretty laughable, with people left right and centre condemning/boycotting the release. I guess you've never experienced Batman "unless it's in the original Japanese". Considering this features no less than Kevin freaking Convoy as the voice of Batman, I guess some viewing habits just can't be broken out of, regardless of the original language of the script!


Where was it said that the news of the lack of a Japanese track on the Blu-ray was a mistake? I heard that someone ripped it and said it's on there, but I haven't heard of anyone being able to access it through normal playback yet.

But if you just wanted to grossly exaggerate so you could start a pissing match with a certain sect of anime fans on another board, carry on.

To get the Japanese track to show up on Gotham Knight (and Batman Begins too) I had to change my PS3 Blu-Ray settings Menu Language to Japanese, once I did that the Japanese track then showed up as an option. Kind of odd to see that on Blu-Ray discs you can hide entire audio tracks based on what the menu language is.
