They make a lot of pills for that.

I got the results of the test back. I definitely have no sense of humor.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 12:48 AM)

I see, so what the world needs is a Tommy Wiseau streaming service.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 11:02 PM)

Well, Conan did start the trend that resulted in a wave of Barbarian films in the mid to late 80s

@  MEDdMI : (17 June 2019 - 10:57 PM)

I keep wanting to read Corman as Conan

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:29 PM)

There needs to be some streaming service that caters to connoisseurs of schlock. Otherwise, a huge part of our cultural history will be wiped away. While many of these films are available on blu-ray, with more coming out each month, it's good they're also available for the streaming crowd.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 June 2019 - 10:18 PM)

Corman did make an impressive number of barbarian films back in the day. If impressive is the word

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:11 PM)

I mean, where else are you going to see the entire Roger Corman barbarian fantasy library (legally) for free?

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 June 2019 - 08:09 PM)

Oh Tubi TV, you are a haven for terrible films. Netflix, Hulu and Crackle all push for mainstream appeal and prestige, you got the guts to have ready access to dregs even the SyFy channel wouldn't air

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

Also you have Bayonetta and a bunch of Fire Emblem people.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 01:33 PM)

...I mean, Tales character. Probably up to/for it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 01:26 PM)

But what if I need to kill a god? Or several of them?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

Kratos is allowed, but only the one from Tales of Symphonia

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 June 2019 - 10:56 AM)

So no Kratos?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:42 AM)

In any case I'd rather have another Fire Emblem character than another character from a PlayStation exclusive game who teeeeeechnically was in a spinoff.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 June 2019 - 10:39 AM)

Kong had his name on the games first, but Mario was the protagonist first. It's debatable.

@  Rycochet : (17 June 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Wouldn't Mario be the one spun off from the Donkey Kong franchise, given that Kong was first?

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 05:19 AM)

I would count Wario and Yoshi, but not DK (might be because I wasn't even aware DK was spun off from the Mario franchise until I was in my mid-20s, but whatever)

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:13 AM)

But to be fair, Corrin is the only one I particularly dislike and it's really more boredom due to their blandness as characters

@  unluckiness : (17 June 2019 - 04:09 AM)

It would depend on whether or not you count DK, Wario and Yoshi as part of the Mario franchise or separate. Scratch that, there are more Mario characters even with just the mushroom symbol people but it's a close call.

@  Pennpenn : (17 June 2019 - 02:55 AM)

You'd figure Fire Emblem would have enough characters in Smash. Kinda feels like there's more FE characters than Mario characters.

@  unluckiness : (16 June 2019 - 01:20 AM)

And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Right after Shaq.

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Pipe dream Smash entry: The Prince from the Katamari series. :D

The space/time around them gets frozen too! ....or something.

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 06:01 AM)

I still want to find out how freezing people suspends them in midair

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Given Nintendo's relationship with Tecmo, I'm still waiting for Ryu Hyabusa

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 June 2019 - 07:19 PM)

I'm still waiting for Doomguy.

@  Steevy Maximus : (13 June 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I just started watching High School DxD (don't judge me...) and I caught on the Nintendo Treehouse some request Rias for Smash lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 June 2019 - 11:25 AM)

I have having to watch a video to find out why someone wanted me to watch the video

@  Nevermore : (11 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

I remember when the TPB for The Dark Age 2 was delayed for an entire year...

@  Trpodeca : (11 June 2019 - 03:55 AM)

I just wish they'd release the Astro City paperback trades.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:31 AM)

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

I did find it odd that this was what tipped the scales for Musk. Not sure what Roiland ever did however.

 

But I didn't ask. Mostly because I find it silly to make declarations like that in the first place.

Even if the guy weren't an obnoxious assclown at the best of times who responded to people calling him a Nazi by leaning into it hard at pretty much the worst time in history since actual World War II to do that, I really don't understand why there's suddenly this huge outpouring of "support" for someone who's already way too famous to become even more way-too-famous.

 

Call me a hipster if you want, but if you ever catch me taking sides in a pointless popularity contest between the already-two-most-popular anythings, you should assume I'm too far gone and have my permission to just shoot me.

Pewdiepie Felix, yeah. Pretty much everybody I watch has come out for him at some point or another trying to keep him as the number 1 Youtuber. Didn't expect to see him pull non YT celebs into this however.

 

But as predicted, he was surpassed just after midnight. For exactly 1 second before starting to outpace the competition again. Still ends his streak all the same tho.

 

[edit] apparently I was misinformed. The sub gap got down to one subscriber, then spiked. He still retains the streak.

I basically unsubbed from Markiplier and Jacksepticeye once they went livestreaming pleading for people to sub to Pewdiepie, as though:
1) that actually bothered to mean anything in the long run

2) Pewdiepie represented or cared about the smaller creators on the platform

 

I want that Indian recording label to trounce his ass. hug him.

He's not being "replaced". He's not going anywhere (unfortunately) just because someone else's numbers are bigger than his. And by the way, neither are they if he wins. Is there even an end game here, or is this arms race going to just go on forever, escalating more and more until they're resorting to shoving flyers in people's mailboxes and harassing random people on the street begging for more subs?
 
I've always hated the term "dick-measuring competition" but I don't know how else to properly express how meaningless this all is and how insane his fans have gone by blowing it so far out of proportion. And at this point, it's literally turning into a contest of who can be the biggest dick. And a contest like that has no winners. Only lots and lots of losers.

EDIT:

Two more for the list then! Why the hell not?

I walked away from Markiplier and Jack long ago after their format styles began to severely grate on the nerves. Yes yes, you act like a highly caffeinated ten year old. I've had a long day, I'm tired, and I just need you to take it down a notch or five.

 

Now my feed's pretty much exclusive British Let's Players. Huh.

Might I recommend Bryce Games if you want a decent American LPer?

 

And yeah Mark and Jack have gotten hit or miss but they still had the enjoyable bit here and there... but not enough for me to stay subbed after those livestreams making a Really Big Deal out of a stupid-ass thing in support of a worthless wangrod.

I tend to find most YouTubers become insufferable once they hit a certain margin of success. There are people I used to watch who went from "Thanks so much, all the support helps this channel grow" to "Who the hug are you?! I don't owe you anything!"

 

PewDiePie has never been my thing and I'm not sure why the hell people are so obsessed with his sub count.

I think there are two camps on PewDiePie's sub count:

 

1: Those who genuinely care about the number itself.  Probably either his biggest fans or biggest detractors. Being people who either want it to go up so he's more successful or go down so he's less.  The usual celebrity love/hate thing.

 

2: People who find the popularity and consequently influence of PewDiePie disturbing, especially given his tendency to drop racist epitaphs and use, shall we say, racially questionable imagery and then brush it off as a 'joke'.

 

It's not surprising that people would care about this subscriber count, really.  It's the main metric by which to judge how popular and influential he is as a content creator, how many people are drinking his coolaid, so to speak. So, like, when he repeatedly drops the N-word, or makes anti-Semitic jokes, it becomes a relevant point of conversation just how many people think that's ok.

 

It also has relevance in discussing YouTube and the way they handle ad revenue and content creator prominence based on subs/views, but that's less the point in this instance.

I mean on the subject of Mark and Jack joining in on this it's a pretty easy to see why. They jumped in well after the whole thing had hit meme status and after months of being bombarded by fans wanting them to "do their part". I mean hell when Jack made the video condemming Felix after the WSJ thing, his fans gave him tons of shit for it to the point he had to walk it back a bit. The three of them share a decent chunk of a fanbase afterall and you gotta keep your fans happy.

 

Honestly it seems like a majority of people have either forgiven or forgotten about Felix's past transgressions. Possibly because of the quick turn around on him calling himself out for more recent ones. Or just due to time or numbness. When you got streamers and tubers falling left and right because of claims about abuse or child pornography.. well making some edgy jokes and dropping the N bomb a few years back doesn't seem that 'big' anymore.

 

In any event the whole thing has been massively positive for him. He gets free promotion left and right out of it, his sub count jumped massively over the last few months, the more and more celebs and other creators join in the more "okay" it's made it for even more to jump into it. Places that banned him previously have been reversing the bans.. He's pretty much immune to Cancel culture at this point unless he does something actually worthy of being banned from Youtube over. And even then I don't doubt he's got a backup plan.

I heard somewhere that the support thing, at least in part, is because some corporation-owned account was gaining a ton of traction and threatening to overtake his sub count, "and we can't let them win, or else all independent creators lose" or somesuch.

Yep, that's it.

 

Which, again, is ridiculous, because Pewdiepie does not hugging represent the "creator community" or the "independent creators" on the site.

 

It'd be like saying whatever ill falls on Logan Paul affects all vloggers everywhere.
