Is Skyrim worth playing in 2020?

@  Paladin : (28 February 2020 - 07:45 AM)

when you use the character as a header image for a frontpage story, i think you lose the right to complain about anyone else "spoiling things."

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

Been probably 20 years since I've seen this since I know I watched it in High school. Gonna be interesting seeing it after all this time. I just know some find it a classic. Others, a train wreck.

I'm not really feeling this season of anime, I only picked two to watch, the first is the Puella Magi Madoka Magica side story and the other is Infinite Dendrogram.

 

Rewatched Knights and Magic, still a desent series

I've always loved "playing a video game" anime, but the <Infinite Dendrogram> anime is a bit... too real for me. I mean, you're reminded within the first few minutes that whilst whatever is going on in the game, the protagonist is just like;

OimS1AI.jpg

IRL.

I feel like almost all the atmosphere from the light novel was sacrificed for having everything from the entire first half of the first volume happen in the first episode. I mean, Ray learns what tians are and then is referencing them normally in about 10 seconds. All the dramatic tension and worldbuilding was just... gone.

Done this way, I'm certainly not buying the tension when he's concerned about the death of an NPC. Trying to convince the viewers otherwise, they basically gave him a catchphrase.

Sounds like they are rushing the story to get to what they consider the "good" part!

 

I just been watching the so called season 2 of the CGI Saint Saiya, or better known as the Knights of the Zodac Saint Saiya, to be honest, its rubbish, the animation looks flawless but the problem lies in the story, I have no problems with them changing one of the main characters from a male to a female, if anything to me, it seems rather natural, but the story, it has no real tension and the story just feels like its going at a brake neck pace to get somewhere, I would not be surprised if the third season or whatever they want to call it, if it happens ends up halfway through the battle of the temples so basically, six eps and one temple per a ep, granted I never read the manga and seen a large chunk of the first anime but even I can tell the story is rushing, while the original, kind of dragged after a while. One thing with this series, I DO not recomend watching in Japanese with subtitles, it feels extremely poor and your best watching with the English langauge verison, at least the voice actors are acting and this series is being produced by Toei but clearly they don't really have the magic they once did. Watch the series if you want but don't expect any draw out battles or spectator fights as most battles are over rather quickly.

Well, I did already get my tix for the showing of the My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising movie on the 26th.

When they played the Two Heroes movie, my friend did not get them ahead of time, we got there an hour early, and it was sold out. Kinda sucks, as the theater definitely had some open seats, but was indeed pretty full.

Not as full as the Broly movie last year, though. They moved the first showing to the biggest (non X-Plus) theater, and it was completely packed. Been a long time since I have seen a non-MCU or SW movie that was that packed.

I'm just getting irked that these movies come out and have no local showings at all despite having a 12 screen theater in town. Of course it could be worse I guess. At least MHA: Heroes Rising is all over the Portland area. The Violet Evergarden movie doesn't even have any shows in the Pacific Northwest.

Tickets for the My Hero Academia subbed showing in my neck of the woods are $20 a piece after tax, which... shoot, at that price I'm just going to wait and blind buy it on Blu Ray.

 

That's just a line where I go full Boomer and rant about how back in my day ticket prices were... [/Boomer]

I would likely blind buy it on BD if I had to.  Been doing that for anime for decades at this point. [I'd say /Boomer, but I am still technically a Millennial...]

 

I do not remember the prices exactly, but I do know that the tix for My Hero Academia movie (dubbed) was cheaper than Weathering with You (dubbed) that I saw last month.  Price around here tends to fluctuate, especially with specialty showings like these.

 

On another odd note, I also got tix to see Miku Hatsune at the House of Blues in Boston in May.  Seen many videos of a number of her "live" performances, so should be pretty interesting.

Tokyo MX Cancels Interspecies Reviewers TV Anime Broadcast in Japan (NSFW)

 

Surprised it took this long.

 

Then again, shows like Valkyrie Drive, Monster Musume, and Kandagawa Jet Girls got to do their full runs on TV.

 

But then;

 

 

This is hot off the heels of Funimation canceling the simulcast and simuldub of the series because the American company “determined that this series falls outside of our standards."

 

Huh, okay then.

 

I was really surprised that this was getting made when I initially heard about it, based on the premise and what I'd seen of the manga. But then again, Queen's Blade continues to exist (though not on TV, obviously).

 

Meanwhile I just learned that my precious Nijino Yume is in this show (she even performs the theme song) so there goes my day.

This is one of those times it does make me afraid of which anime fans actually are standing up and defending shows like these.

Ill admit to watching some pretty close to hentai material at times but the sound of Interspecies Reviewers was enough to turn my head away and not touch it. I get it feels hypocritical for Funimation to pull it after putting things like Testament of Sister New Devil or High School DxD, but with having no current way to age gate their streaming service and that being a brand new series that was being promoted its a tad bad on their part. Granted theres no stopping a anyone from looking up those older series either so its time Funimation tries to corral their service together and look at how they need to set some parental restrictions.

I don't think we need to be concerned with anything, just stay away from it with a ten foot pole. People who choose this as their hill to die on are either not being serious, treating the treatment show (which most of them have never even watched) as an affront to being able to watch shows like this (which is a reactionary position of defiance, not based in much else), or well, are being serious and all we can give them is time (to grow out of it) and/or our ignorance (if they don't).

 

Honestly, I think the reactionaries are the biggest group here.

 

 

but with having no current way to age gate their streaming service

 

Huh, that's a very good point. I mean, they have Puzzle & Dragons X and Monster Hunter Stories on there (unless they gave up the rights) and similar, so that is concerning.

 

I never really thought about anime streaming services having to cater to the different demos, especially when a parent is paying for a subscription and finds out about something like this.

But that is kind of a question for Funimation as well. All around there are very few shows under their name that are kid appropriate to begin with. There are the not so serious shonen shows but even stuff like One Piece, Fairy Tail, and Dragon Ball have stuff not quite there for young audiences.

Besides the cultural divide on sexual humor and the place violence has between Japan and the west, most anime isnt something you can sit a young child in front of and let them watch it without some sort of possible social issue that may appear.

Of course censorship in anime has always been weird. God forbid rice balls and lesbians. Gotta make them jelly doughnuts and cousins. Really really close cousins..... the old Sailor Moon dub crew thought that was a better idea why?!
