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.

@  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.

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

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

Wait ok so throughout the episode they make mention of the time Lance accused Oliver of being the Hood in season one but everyone seems to have totally forgotten the rather large spectacle that was made back in season three when he was accused of being the Arrow which seems odd.

Roy took the claim of being the Arrow, who was the Hood, whom Oliver was twice found innocent of not being. To the public eye of Star City, the Hood/Arrow and the Green Arrow are different people, with the latter carrying on the legacy of the former, and with Oliver now accused of being only the latter.

No I know that and that distinction is even made in the episode by the FBI agent but Oliver says that hes been accused and cleared of being a vigilante once five years ago even though it happened twice and the second time was more recent

I gotta say, in last night's episode, the fight scene that was overlaid by the talk between Felicity and William about Oliver's doing what he does for the sake of the city as the Green Arrow has to be one of the most touching moments of the whole series.

Everything that's happened since the midseason break has made me hate the new recruits and Oliver's son. We've lost Slade AGAIN because of the stupid movieverse. The villains they introduced this season are very underdeveloped. I'm hoping things get better, but right now, all I can do is shrug and think, "At least it's not The Flash..."

I'm purely hate-watching Arrow at this point. Basically all the main characters (except maybe Lance and Thea) are unlikable idiots incapable of having adult emotional reactions to anything. This "Arrow Civil War" storyline is entirely facilitated by everyone acting like massive dickheads for no real reason.

My Arrowverse power rankings stand very firmly at:

#1 - Legends of Tomorrow - the best by miles and miles
#2 - The Flash - more or less okay, far better than emo season 3
#3 - Supergirl - mostly on a par with The Flash, but all the romance sub-plots are brutally awful
#4 - Arrow - basically no redeeming features

Just finished up this past year of Arrow. And yeah, everything after "Crisis" ended up being a damn train-wreck, and I can't count how many times I shouted at the screen because the characters ended up acting deeply, deeply stupid, and deeply unlikeable.
 
Rene became particularly intolerable, because his folding under pressure and ratting out Oliver to the FBI started an avalanche of problems, and he didn't actually apologize for it until the season was wrapping up. How many times did he go "Don't think this changes anything, hoss." when the fractured teams worked together? Three, four times? Then when it all goes straight to hell, he shoots at Oliver, and tries to take him out with an axe, and yet Oliver is terribad for putting Rene back in the hospital. LOL whut?
 
The less said about super-vengeful Dinah, the better, and they even ruined Curtis, with his "let's take out Diggle with his implant" idea, which was beyond scummy. And yeah, I got pissed at the original team-arrow too. I mean, NOBODY could grow the hell up and work things out until the whole city fell apart? Really? 
 
I couldn't stand Agent Watson, I couldn't stand Ricardo Diaz as a villain, and now it looks like I'll have to deal with his shitty presence again next season, and I overall just can't figure out what the writers were trying to accomplish here. 
 
Arrow better get better FAST next season, or I'm out.

Honestly, I think last season of Arrow was rather weak, it came off a great finally to season 5, but with season 6, its main problem is the fact they can no longer really flash back to Oilver's five years in hell. As for the trailer, looks OK but I'm wondering how Oilver going to get out of jail, Diaz, he an ok villian but nowhere near as good as previous villians in the show, besides, Oilver didn't really take everything from him, he did it to himself, if only he had chosen a different city, he might of gotten what he wanted but he picked Star City

Rather weak? That's more praise than it deserves. After the Earth-X crossover, it was flat-out awful.

The lack of flashbacks wasn't the problem, and that approach had run its course. The issue was "let's have character do X because plot", no matter how OOC and nonsensical it was, no matter how stupid it made each character look.

And Diaz was a ridiculous villian, who was little more than a thug, and yet had somehow managed to buy off almost everyone in Star City? With absolutely no explanation at all, because the writers decided to tell instead of show.

Oh, and don't get me started on how dead Diaz should have been after walking into that Quadrant meeting and demanding a seat at the table.

No, he's not a decent villain at all, and yet they're bringing him back for another go. Wonderful.

Most of the Arrowverse shows have done so many stupid things, and characters being outright idiots that seem to forget a lesson they just learned the previous season, that I outright want Crisis to happen and all the shows get a slight reboot. Oh and merge some of these Earths together already.

To be fair, Oliver has been learning the same three lessons ("You can rely on your friends", "You seriously can't blame yourself for things the villains do" and "No matter how many people die around you, it's almost never genuinely your fault, so you shouldn't blame yourself") over and over for almost twice as long as Barry has been around.

 

I've been waiting for a reboot for a while, but there might be issues with TV executives feeling they'd lose audience over it (of course that's failing to consider they'd gain back people they'd lost already).

 

Aren't we just dealing with Flarrowverse Earth (featuring the Legends), Supergirl Earth (mostly separate because of the CBS>CW move) and Black Lightning Earth (because that show is way more serious)?

 

I mean, in terms of "Stop overusing the concept of multiple Earths", that's a Flash-exclusive problem and they could deal with it by like... stopping.

I went into the new episode rather skeptical, but it was a very solid season opener and much better than 90% of last season.
