I wish I could just sit by a pond and watch ducks for a while.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 August 2020 - 03:52 AM)

Others say Joe sat down at this pond next to these ducks but really there's just no place in this world for an old man and his ducks.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:48 PM)

Even worse when I can produce those verifiable facts at a later point, and then the other person simply claims the argument was the other way round (as in, I was actually arguing their position and vice versa).

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:47 PM)

I can argue with people about my versus their memory of events when verifiable facts are not readily available, though, and I get really annoyed when I'm capable of presenting a precise, step-by-step summary with multiple key points that can be used for future verification, and the other person just goes "nope, wrong" without going into detail.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:45 PM)

I forget things, and I misremember things. But when presented with verifiable facts, my reaction is more like "Huh, could have sworn it was like that", not "this reality is not my own".

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 06:43 PM)

I have an extremely good memory (which I have proven time and again), and even I can be mistaken.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 August 2020 - 06:40 PM)

Might be worth pointing out that it only became "Mandela Effect" and not just "I remembered this wrong" when a conspiracy theorist insisted it was proof of alternate timelines.

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Incorrectly remembering Nelson Mandela's fate may be uniquely American... but is it really that strange to get South African political history wrong when you're no where near South Africa?

@  Otaku : (10 August 2020 - 06:29 PM)

I always assumed the Mandela Effect was a "human thing", not an American thing.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 August 2020 - 02:03 PM)

Then there are people who outright manufacture memories for whatever reason.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (10 August 2020 - 01:13 PM)

The human brain is so flaky that it is extremely unlikely that a given person does NOT have any false memories.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Perhaps it's simple word association the movie Sinbad and then our minds apply the same memories to a man named Sinbad.

@  OverDrive73 : (10 August 2020 - 01:04 PM)

The Mandela Effect is the same as people remembering Sinbad in a movie where he played a genie... Of which he never did.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:36 AM)

People that believe Mandela Effect things would rather come up with any number of reasons as to why their version doesn't have any actual evidence(like alternate timelines collapsing into our own) than just admit they remembered something wrong

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Sort of. It's more that when presented with a verifiable fact, they double down because it's what they believe instead of changing their minds

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

"I could have sworn that ______."

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 August 2020 - 09:25 AM)

I'm not arguing with either of those two statements, but they're not really connected. Mandela Effect is, to oversimplify, people being widely mistaken about what they think *is* a verifiable fact. Nothing to do with opinions.

@  MidnightFox : (10 August 2020 - 08:52 AM)

Pretty sure the Mandela Effect in general is an American thing. Opinion > Verifiable Facts is sadly a pretty American thing

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:27 AM)

Ask these people how Apartheid ended according to their recollection, and I'm sure they'll draw a blank.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:25 AM)

You got two black anti-Apartheid activists who were imprisoned by the oppressive regime. One died, the other was Nelson Mandela. It's not a far stretch that Americans who don't know many details about the history of other countries would mix up the two.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:24 AM)

My own theory is that these people are simply mixing up Nelson Mandela and Steve Biko, another South African anti-Apartheid activist, who did indeed die in police custody in 1977. There was an Oscar-nominated movie about his life starring Denzel Washington that came out in 1987, the same time frame these people claim remembering Mandela dying.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:17 AM)

I met a few people from South Africa, and they either never heard of the phenomenon at all, or only know of it from the internet. Apparently, it's completely unknown in South Africa, and it might even be entirely limited to the United States.

@  Nevermore : (10 August 2020 - 04:16 AM)

So does anyone remember the "Mandela Effect"? I'm talking specifically about the original case where many people vividly remember Nelson Mandela dying in prison in the 1980s.

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

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.

Olegmon is the best Death General.

Also, Xros Wars episodes 48, 49, and 50 are subbed.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

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.

D&D has to report to shareholders. Pathfinder only has to impress its neckbeards.

... >_> 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.
If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

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.
