@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:06 PM)

In its current form, DS9 is eventually going to fade from the public consciousness. Even on modern top-of-the-line displays, those old SD masters look like trash, and there's only so long younger generations will be able to stomach them. I can only imagine how they'll look when everyone has ultra-short throw projectors casting 120" images on their walls

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 06:05 PM)

It's definitely offputting, but Trek is one property I'd be willing to hold my nose and open my wallet for. I care far more about DS9 being available in the long-term, and for future generations, than my distaste for corporate greed

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:39 PM)

'Pay up now and fund this remaster we'll be able to profit from for decades, as this will be your only chance to get that show you like on BluRay... Until the superdeluxe re-release with even more stuff and a metal box.'

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:14 PM)

Stuff they're intending to remaster anyway for their streaming service would become crowdfunding projects.

@  Rycochet : (20 August 2019 - 05:09 PM)

I love DS9, but there is something offputting about giving money direct to Viacom for a project like this, probably because it would set a bad precedent. Given how moneygrubbing they are, it would quickly become their go-to solution for any old show they want remastered rather than dipping their hands in their own deep pockets.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 August 2019 - 02:48 PM)

A crowdfunding probably wouldn't be that outrageous. The DS9 Documentary "What We Left Behind" that was recently released on blu-ray managed to raise nearly $650,000 on IndieGoGo. Imagine how much fans might contribute if it were guaranteed the remaster would happen provided the goal was reached.

@  Nutjob R/T : (20 August 2019 - 12:48 AM)

New crowdfunding project: We need to get enough nose candy for the Paramount execs to keep 'em up long enough to get DS9 squeezed out

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 04:36 PM)

They're hideously cheap. I'm just glad some decision maker in the upper echelons stayed high as a kite for long enough for us to get TOS, TNG and TAS on blu-ray

@  Rycochet : (19 August 2019 - 04:16 PM)

Paramount are kinda cheap and Ds9 isn't popular enough for them to go all out on a remaster.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:37 PM)

Or hell, they could just shorten a season of Discovery by 2-3 episodes and that'd pay for the DS9 remaster in full (assuming the 8 to 8.5 million per episode for Discovery that was reported a while back is accurate)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:32 PM)

Redoing some of the more simple effects like phasers and transporters and whatnot (basically what they've already had practice doing for TNG)

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 August 2019 - 03:30 PM)

They could scan and rebuild the film elements, and then upscale the original CGI only (provided it still exists as separate footage)

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:33 PM)

Basically its in the same situation as DS9 IIRC with loss of models and how the CGI was applied to the existing footage.

@  Dekafox : (19 August 2019 - 02:32 PM)

Not gonna happen unless they recreate all the CGI from scratch, unfortunately. Or just upscale the broadcast masters, which would be basically pointless.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 August 2019 - 01:35 PM)

Dunno what we'd call a Megatron combiner, we almost got a Megastator in IDW but nothing in Combiner Wars.

@  Rycochet : (17 August 2019 - 01:42 PM)

Multi Vector Assault mode is what they go into when they think anyone's even slightly infringing on their IP.

@  Ashley : (17 August 2019 - 02:30 AM)

They MIGHT have done it for Star Trek Online ships, but even if they have that'd be a fairly specific category.

Hey, if Toku, Gundam, Doctor Who, and other stuff can have general threads, why not? Plus, the old "Digimon Around" thread is super old.

So, yeah, to start us off, Digimon has quite a few stuff coming down the pipeline. First up is the upcoming continuation of Digimon Xros Wars, which is called "Digimon Xros Wars: The Young Hunters Who Leapt Through Time."



Xros Wars main characters Taiko Kudo and Shoutmon are joined by new main goggleboy Tagiru Akashi and his partner Gumdramon (center), Yuu Amano and Damemon, who are now older (next right), Ren Tobari and Dracumon (far right), and Ryouma Mogami and Airu Suzaki with Psychemon and Opossumon. Beyond that, no other details are known at this time.

Also in the pipeline is a new video game for the PSP, called "Digimon World Re: Digitize", which is said to follow in the footsteps of the original "Digimon World" for the Playstation. Beyond the involvement of Suzhuhito Yasuda, a designer for Shin Megami Tensei, as character designer, not much is known about it. Players will have access to both the real and Digital Worlds, and the first confirmed partner digimon is Agumon.



Next, the third booster for Digimon Jintrix, the current card game, was recently released. Included in it are new digimon based off of Journey to the West, Gokuwmon, Cho*Hakkaimon, Sagomon, Sanzomon, and Shakamon. You can see scans of the new booster here:

http://wikimon.net/D...n_Jintrix_Set_3

Since release, Gokuwmon and Cho*Hakkaimon have had their profiles added to the online Digimon Dictionary.

QUOTE
Gokuwmon
Gokuwmon was born from magma that boiled in a boot volcano and, as a result of extracting data from many databases while searching for more strength, he took on this form and became a rare Battle type Digimon whose combative instincts awakened quickly. He took a trip to the Digital World in order to challenge a powerful enemy due to the earnest desire embedded in the depths of his heart, but he will offer to battle any opponent he meets that he judges to be strong through his contemptuousness. However, Gokuwmon can go too far, which will make the "Jǐngū?r", installed on his head by Sanzomon when he was born, react so greatly that it will tighten his head and make him faint in agony by its curse, so he unwillingly follows courtesy. Gokuwmon excels in many martial arts and types of magic, and the "Nyoikin Tagabō" he wields in his hand is flexible enough to attack remote enemies and, in addition, can be used as an all-around weapon in that he can divide it into a two-barreled handgun that can fire lightning bullets or combine it into a gun that fires lightning bolts. Gokuwmon's "Higi Yumeutsutsu Kage" lightly wields the "Nyoikin Tagabō" and annoys the enemy with his seemingly acrobatic movements, attacking it with dreamy shadows. His "Shippūjinrai Attack" stabs the "Nyoikin Tagabō" into the ground and extends it into a thundercloud within the sky, storing thunder energy within himself before hurling himself at the enemy like a thunderbolt. His "Chōtaiden Raikō-hō" amplifies energy within the "Nyoikin Tagabō" before hitting the enemy with it. In addition, he can move in the sky at high speeds like magic with "D?u Y?n", allowing him to fly in the sky by walking on clouds.


- Gokuwmon's attacks translate as "Secret Move - Trance Shadow", "Lightning Speed Attack", "Super-electrified Lightning Cannon", and "Somersault Cloud."

QUOTE
Cho*Hakkaimon
A woman-shaped Digimon wearing a pig costume. She was once a Digimon of the Angel species, but she incurred the wrath of Ophanimon by commiting evil deeds, which saw her expelled from the heavens and transformed into the form she's in today. She usually has a very bright personality and is so optimistic that she doesn't seem to care about her new body, but she will begin to get irritable if her stomach starts feeling empty, and she'll soon acquire a ferocious personality as time passes. She will go completely berserk when she becomes hungry. Her weapon is the "Ro Suguru-tō Kugi", a booster whose power increases greatly when combined with the Herculean strength of Cho-Hakkaimon. Her "Kyōshin-hō Mai Ran" fully swings the booster and blows away the enemy far into the distance with her accelerating force. Although the "Dadada Miinchi", where she rapidly and continuously attacks with the "Ro Suguru-tō Kugi" looks horrible, she actually flattens the enemy with it. In addition, she can roast the opponent's body crispy brown when she embraces the opponent and flares up her own body in anger with "Buta no Maruyaki". She has gone on a journey in order to stop her personality becoming ferocious and also to seek redemption.


- Cho*Hakkaimon's attacks translate as "Hard Swinging Homerun", "Multi-Hitting Demon Blood Drinker", and "Whole Pig Roast."

Both translations were done by Wildermon of WithTheWill.net.

Finally, last but not least, Digimon Xros Wars has been showing off the winners of Bandai's new "create a digimon" contest in the series' eyecatches. The first winner to be shown off is Ekakimon.

That's all for now.

We're on episode 50.

Personally, I hope they streamline Re:Digitize a bit. I don't mind the V-Pet aspects of it and Championship for the DS, but it could get rather tedious and confusing from time to time.

I mean, the Digimon World games for the DS had a lot of grinding, but at the least it was easier to get some of the digimon you wanted.

Oh, and this is neat; the next Xros Wars DVD cover:



Poor Dorulumon.

And yeah, I liked Digimon Frontier quite a bit too. I didn't get to see it until some time after it had aired, as it wasn't on TV in the UK, and I didn't have broadband at the time, and after all I'd heard I didn't EXPECT to enjoy it as much as I did, but it was a lot better than many people were making it sound.

I like Frontier fine enough; I would personally end up ranking it above 02 and Xros Wars (though I'd rank Xros Wars WELL above 02, for the record)

Frontier's problems lay in the Royal Knights arc, which is nearly 10 episodes straight of Takuya & Kouji getting their asses kicked, and the mishandling of parts of the cast. Izumi getting shorted as much as she did was almost like there was some sort of backlash for Ruki being so self-sufficient and powerful.

However, Takuya's development as a character, and Kouji & Kouichi's characters are all pretty strong. Every one of the cast does undergo some good character development by the end. Plus, Frontier probably has some of THE best fight direction and animation of the first four series.

Lucemon is one of my favorite end bosses, though. He's only there for a few episodes, but comes across SO well in it. (My favorite villain overall is Kurata, however.)

More Digimon Dictionary profiles, continuing the "Journey to the West" group.



QUOTE
Sagomon
A Demon Man Digimon that was banished from the heavens of the Digital World and fell into the confines of a bridge-filled island of the North. He usually has a cheerful personality whose jokes are often criticised, but when he touches a skull that is bound around his waist, he'll get angry like enraged fire. The reason for this is because he will transform into a terrible Digimon when he touches the 9 skulls bound around his waist, and he will even lack his own identity afterwards. He wields the super heavyweight-classed "Ji?ng Yāo Bǎo Zh?ng" staff that unleashes a terrible amount of power, and uses it to either create a tornado of water by spinning it lightly with "Ji?ng Yāo Bǎo Zh?ng: Kamon no Jin" or fire torrents of water from the cracks in the earth he creates by flinging his staff onto it with "Ji?ng Yāo Bǎo Zh?ng: Taki no Jin". In addition, he can stab the crescent moon-shaped blade into the enemy in close combat with "Yu?y? Zhǎn". He has gone on a journey in order to find an answer to his dilemma of "What is my true identity?"


- Sagomon's attacks translate to "Demon Quelling Treasure Staff: Waterfall Formation", "Demon Quelling Treasure Staff: Whirpool Formation", and "Moon Fang Slash."



QUOTE
Sanzomon
A Priest Digimon that has gone on a journey across the Digital World in order to seek realization. She has imposed penance on her body over many hard trials, and practices Shugendo day and night. Sanzomon completely lacks weaponry, so instead she performs a variety of attacks by chanting sutras. With "Mori-ku Haru", she notes that she is eternally grateful and revives both the dissipated heart and conscious of other Digimon. With "Kochō Yume Kei", Sanzomon realizes all the ordeals she has suffered. With "Mugen Danmaku-shin Kei", she gives off a hallucination from the beads she holds that endlessly attacks the enemy from all sides and dampens its heart. Sanzomon accumulates a necessary amount of pure and innocent energy from Digimon that allows her to attain realization, and it's said that once she is free from every injury and intractable disease that she suffers throughout her everlasting life, she will be overcome with desire and follow the Digimon she truly loves. However, it's not just enemies that are drawn to Sanzomon, as those Digimon plagued with worry concerning various dilemmas will come to her too. Sanzomon loves finding the answers and the reasons behind them to those troubles, and it's said that she will accompany those Digimon on their journeys.


- I have no idea what the hell any of her attacks translate to.

Once again, translation credit goes to Wildermon.

I'm rather disappointed with Sagomon. He's basically just a rewrite of Shawujingmon, right down to having identical attacks.

That's no excuse to make his attacks and profile nearly identical to Shawujingmon's, though. He just seems superfluous now.

I would have preferred it if they made him the "terrible digimon" Shawujingmon would become if he had his prayer beads removed.

Razorsaw, that's Dracmon!

My favorite seasons are Adventure and Tamers. I liked what I saw of Savers despite the dub not being of the same caliber as the previous four, I'm okay with Zero Two despite the ending, and... I'm not fond of Frontier. Like, at all. Xros Wars looks promising, but I'm of the opinion that there'll never be a season up to Tamers snuff.

I would have agree with Sagomon just feeling like an un-needed rehash of Shawujingmon, but then I looked at their designs side by side and discovered they aren't just hueswaps.

... >_> You saw nothing.

I'd recommend watching all of Savers. The series is pretty strong, IMHO, even if it does step outside of some of Digimon's standard comfort zones.

Tamers was great stuff. Surprisingly dark for a kids show, what with the giant monster powered by a suicidally depressed little girl.

The guy who directed tamers, Chiaki J. Konaka, is a huge Eva fan, which would explain things like why Ruki was kind of like Asuka, why Hypnos was almost sorta like NERV if ya squint, and why the agents of the D-Reaper were so friggin' weird like Angels.

Also, Beelzemon was and is awesome.
