Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

Or do a crossover where you team up with McDonaldzilla.

Take off and nuke the site from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.

In the beginning new Subways were only built every twelve months. Then six, then three. Then every two weeks. In four days we could be seeing a new Subway every eight hours until they are coming every four minutes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

One bite is all it takes.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I'm a little worried by how many Subways there are in my vincinity. Like, there are two within walking distance of my house, and I pass about four of them on my way to work

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:41 PM)

I'd almost rather eat the corpse, but then again, it's probably been eating Subway too, with my luck.

So, didja hear? Pac-Man is getting a new animated series!

It's being co-produced by Avi Arad and Rick Ungar (X-Men: Evolution, Biker Mice from Mars), will be in 3D, and is coming to Disney XD in Fall 2013.

More info and a blurry video can be seen here.

Plus, the original Pac-Man cartoon's first season just came out on DVD, though $35.99 seems a bit much for only one of the two seasons.

As far as the new one goes, I'm hoping this leads to a new round of Pac-Merchandise... seems like a natural direction, given that Bandai Namco are the owners of the IP.

Above is the original post; the latest info, with a new clip, screens, and galleries of the toys can be seen here.

Isn't the price of the original Pac-Man season one cartoon that high because it's only available through Warner Archives?

Pac-Man's voice is a tad... grating. I grew up with the Hanna Barbara series, so I'm so used to seeing him as a middle class family man that suddeny "squeaky voiced kid" has taken me by surprise.

The show looks neat, though, and I like how they're incorporating all the abstract concepts of the arcade game into a semi-coherent universe.

And was that Inky, Blinky, Pinky and Clyde at the end?

Anyway, I'll give it a shot.

I mean, no matter what way you cut it, it's still a show based on a game from the infancy of the industry.

It's some manner of incredible challenge to make it any good while still incorporating everything that it is.

Yeah, but you all got to remember, the kid Pac-Man of the new show is because it take place when Pac-Man starts to become the hero he is in the video games.

Yes, but it also means no Ms. Pac-Man and no Pac-Baby.

The show from the 80s wasn't great, but it was a pretty original take on what amounts to a game based on a guy eating pills at a rave.

Exactly, as this is set before Pac-Man met Ms. Pac-Man.

Maybe that will come later on in the show... and she can actually be MS. Pac-Man, instead of his wife, Pepper.

As for the voice, it's grown on me. But yeah, it caught me off-guard as well. Still, I think it will help appeal to kids, which is what the franchise really needs right now, in my opinion.

And yes, those are the ghosts in there, though I think I heard somewhere (mind, this was over a year ago) that they're his friends? Could make for an interesting tale...

If you want a better look at the designs, here they are in one of the games.

I won't be watching it.

I like this idea. I think I'll go with this.

...incidentally, I think a teaser trailer is probably not the best thing to gauge voice acting by, but it seemed alright to me for what it was.

I remember seeing this video quite a while ago. I predicted then that the purple pac-girl with the buckled boots was the daughter of the evil ghost overlord with his buckled gloves. She has a kind of goth quality about her, and he's a ghost. Yeah, I think there'll be some plot twist about that. And could they not make a non-3D trailer available? The fact that this blurry thing is still all we have to go on is just sad.

Bumping, as I just put this together.

Digging some of those toys, and there's a new clip. Also, it appears that Ian Corlett is Blinky and Sir Cumference.

Well, it is a reboot of sorts. I don't know if they have a specific thing set up for the blinking or not, though we saw some of that in the first clip, if I remember right.

I think the glowing might be saved more for the possessions and zappings; Pac is still eating berry-pellets to go after them, though.

Actually, this "style" is intentional, it's gotten popular in a lot of CGI animation shows recently, specifically the cheaper, cartoony ones. It's an attempt to imitate older cartoons but it can be a bit weird and erratic if you're not used to it.

Hooo boy. I guess I'll reserve judgment until I can see a full episode, but it's just hard to watch even a 5 minute clip. Maybe once I see the 4 original ghosts in action, I'll enjoy it more.
