@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

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.

Echoing the love for Brad Jones and Spoony. Nostalgia Critic is hit or miss, but mostly I enjoy Doug's stuff. Also a fan of Lupa.

Nash I watch for his Doctor Who reviews and Sage I tune in for Anime Abandon. I'll check out Nostalgia Chick or Phelous if I'm bored. As a aside, Phelous has gotten extremely better in his delivery and overall energy lately.

Linkara I'm a on again, off again watcher. I generally like his stuff, but the story bits are way too heavy handed (He's not as good an actor as he thinks he is). I was glad when Spoony started putting those at the end of the videos.

But mainly it's Brad and Spoony. They're the two I've actually gone back and rewatched reviews of because they're so entertaining (Though I really could do without the faux Sitcom set up on 80s Dan. Makes it a chore to sit through).

Matter of fact, I think I'll go and re-watch some Let's Play SWAT 4.

Dude, just because folks have remarked that they prefer Reviewer X over Reviewer Y, doesn't somehow invalidate your own opinion or reason for this topic. If you find the Nostalgia Critic the best out of the batch, then there's no shame in that.

Oh, they did another anniversary bit? Where's that at?

Anyway, I like Linkara's Power Rangers stuff. Some of his comic reviews are okay, but I could do without the secondary plot... and my wife likes them even less.

Angry Joe is alright, and I like Vangelus, but I mostly watch Nostalgia Critic and Nostalgia Chick. I like them, except when they get their facts wrong...

Case in point: saying Mario and Luigi are father and son in the Mario movie. icon-waspy.gif Which wouldn't be a problem in itself, except it seems to spread, as people apparently take what he says as gospel.

Hah, I rewatched Spoony's Let's Play of SWAT 4 recently too. Hilarity.

Another big rewatch in Spoony's stuff are the two Insano reviews, Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Dungeonmaster.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I watch Nostalgia Critic and Linkara every week. I also watch the Nostalgia Chick when she updates.

I just enjoy the reviews even of those movies and comics I've never heard of before or already know I don't like. Don't care much for the sub-plots though.



Brute Force is a crazy comic though. Hard to believe Marvel axed Transformers G1 due to low sales then had Furman write this crap. They wanted some toy company to approach them to make toys of Brute Force? Come on Marvel, thats dumb. I actually didn't know it was Furman who wrote Brute Force in the review of the first issue - but I recognised a Furmanism.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

Lord Vice was probably the last "good" story Linkara did. MissingNo was just weird and the latest one with Mechakara was just not well designed at all. Especially since he basically broke narrative flow to do his review (Hence why such things work better at the end of a review).

The Critic's the only one I make a point of watching every week - I used to be a regular Linkara viewer, but I grew increasingly tired of his intrusive, laughably faux-dramatic story nonsense - little more than an excuse to play Power Rangers dress-up with his she-beast girlfriend, near as I can tell. I'll echo whoever said earlier he's not as good an actor - physical or voice - as he seems to think he is (because why keep doing it otherwise?) And his reviews in the last few months have become progressively more and more nitpicking, harping on worthless nerd-based criticisms (Star Trek, Silent Hill) instead of really addressing the stupidity or plotting flaws of the stories. "Marville" is the only one I've watched since Secret Origins Month ended, but I wound up giving up and jumped through the final few minutes because of the persnicketiness of the criticism. And their run-times have REALLY started to drag on. Everyone's always telling me Spoony and Brad are the ones to watch, but I've not got around to it yet, short of Brad's DVR Hell segments, which I've enjoyed.

That's really rather harsh. Yeah Liz is homely, but she seems like a nice person overall. And speaking from experiences, looks mean jack squat when it comes to the worth of a person.

Also, are they dating or were they just roommates? I ask because I know she's moved.

The problem with Marville is that that persnicketiness is the whole reason for the comic's existence. It's one big inside joke of the comic book industry - that if you don't work for the comic book industry, you won't get any of the jokes.

That being said, he summed up his entire review with that clip from BTAS "Mad Love". Could have ended it right there.

I can recommend two more under-appreciated members/shows from TGWTG-

*Paw's Music Movies offers an entertaining look at films based mostly on the soundtracks.

*JesuOtaku's "History of Digimon" is a fascinating retrospective on the Digital Monster sagas.

Doug is... frustrating. I hate his shouty overreacting routine that seems to be what everyone else seems to just love to pieces since he's made it into his "thing" (though the hammyess makes it less uncomfortable to watch than James Rolfe's impression of an angry autistic manchild). But when he's doing a sincere review or even just a deadpan snarky one, it's fine. That's why I love pretty much all of his top 11 videos and the Nostalgia Chick's earlier videos when she was basically aping that style.

Linkara I've gotten in the habit of hanging behind on and watching in clusters when I get severely bored, for some reason. Of the people I can tolerate, he's the most borderline on account of his voice. Though surprisingly he's not a bad voice actor when he's doing mock voices for characters like Batman, Superboy Prime, and '90s Kid. Heck, even Harvey Finevoice. (He's kind of like me in that respect.)

Surprised nobody's brought up Todd in the Shadows yet. I looked up his old YouTube account once out of morbid curiosity thinking he was just another of those wannabe music snobs who say Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga are singlehandedly (doublehandedly?) responsible for the death of good music forever and espousing TEH METAL as the One True Religion (it's always metal for some reason, never indie rock or something, strange)... and was pleasantly surprised to discover that no, he's not like that at all. He makes a lot of good points about the distinction between good pop music and bad pop music, when he does pretend to fly into a rage, his voice is a lot more tolerable than most people's, and his snark is very funny at times. If you can stomach listening to the clips of cheesy pop songs he inserts in between the shots of him critiquing them, I urge you to check him out.

If you ever somehow become a Catholic saint, be aware that they will harvest your bones and build altars around them.

I didn't see a thread about him that wasn't old or even an official disscusion, so I made this thread.

For those who are unaware of him, Nostalgia Critic is a character
played by reviewer Doug Walker who reviews bad (and some good) nostalgic movies and TV shows.
He has tackled some of the worst movies there are such as Batman and Robin, the (poorly) animated Titanic movies,
Battlefield Earth, and the horrendously awful Garbage Pail Kids.

His latest review:

Nostalgia Critic: Star Trek 3 - The search for Spock


Full list of reviews here

I'll try to update this thread every week with his latest video.

OOH! Let me guess... there are bunch of Shatner jokes, right? And Christopher Loyd Doc Brown jokes plus the OH-SO-HILARIOUS "I was frozen today"?

I don't want to see some god damn terrible live action fanfiction in a review.

Indeed.
Though I'd say "dislike" instead of "hate".
