@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:52 AM)

The recent ongoing series didn't start until what, 2013?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:51 AM)

Then was continued as a five-issue mini-series ("Local Heroes"), then came a 16-issue maxi-series ("The Dark Age"), plus a couple of standalone specials and two-parters...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:50 AM)

It started out as a series, but due to Busiek's health problems (?), it was put on hold after six issues, then got relaunched with a new #1, had several delays (again because of Busiek's health issues), was discontinued after #22...

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2019 - 07:49 AM)

I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of Astro City becoming a series of graphic novels now. I mean, it's not like it's always been a steady ongoing series.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I'm also only reading the trades. So I'm still missing... two volumes that are currently only available as hardcovers? Three?

@  Trpodeca : (17 January 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Astro City is great. Since I only read the trades, there probably won't be a big change for me.

@  ZakuConvoy : (17 January 2019 - 05:34 PM)

I have. Great series. Hopefully the transition to OGNs will be a smooth one.

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2019 - 07:20 AM)

Anyone here reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City?

Remember the Noid? He steals pizzas!

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:47 AM)

That said, the old "Nester" character from Nintendo Power IS owned by Nintendo, and I could see a homage in there

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2019 - 10:46 AM)

Because technically DiC created the character, Nintendo does not own him.

@  Paladin : (16 January 2019 - 10:28 AM)

sidebar- why is "Captain N" not in Smash yet? that seems like such an easy option.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2019 - 09:18 AM)

The 90's mario cartoons had exactly three character aspects to work with: fat, italian and plumber. He wasn't exactly wrenching pipes in every episode, so they had to do something...

That's Mama Luigi to you, Mario *wheeze*

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2019 - 02:24 AM)

It's too hot here.

@  Echowarrior : (15 January 2019 - 11:03 PM)

I liked the Super Mario Brothers Super Show the best myself.

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 10:35 PM)

There's always the three Mario cartoons DiC made back in the 80s.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So they could make a show that everyone would scream was an adventure time knockoff? I get what you're saying, but I can't see it being well received.

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 January 2019 - 08:47 PM)

The fact that Adventure Time was on the air for 8 years and at no point did Nintendo hand the creators a large sack of money and say, "Please make a Mario thing for us" will forever anger me.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 07:03 PM)

There was so much awesome put into design and conception of the super mario bros. movie, and it didn't even need the branding: but it wouldn't have made it to the screen without the branding.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:56 PM)

Many aspects of it have stuck in my memory, though. The boots, the devolution ray, the aesthetic of the dinosaur city

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

I had no idea there was another Mario Bros. movie coming out, though. Doubt it'll top the first one, it was just so bizarre

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 06:55 PM)

They already act a bit like minions; they just aren't stupid

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 05:35 PM)

The trouble is: I honestly can't decide if making them minions would be better or worse than the continuously shrill voices they've used for the last 20 years.

@  Paladin : (15 January 2019 - 05:27 PM)

hope everyone's ready for Toads to look, act & sound like the Minions forever...

@  Lancer : (15 January 2019 - 04:54 PM)

I mean, considering Illumination is making the new Mario movie, Super Mario Bros. 1993 won't be the worst Mario movie anymore

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 04:36 PM)

"Sir, your pizza's here." "Not now!"

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Actually, yeah. I think I need to watch it again. Great movie.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 03:44 PM)

It's a fun movie with amazing sets. As long as you don't try to connect it to anything else Mario, it's fine.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 January 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Damn, I haven't thought about the Super Mario Bros. feature film in forever. Need to watch it again, soon; I can only imagine it gets better with time.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 January 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Re:Zero is a fantastic series.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 03:10 PM)

Yeah it's not a bad concept, it's just that lately the term is associated with "I, a Loser Everyman, Woke Up In a Generic Fantasy Setting Where I'm Super Special So Now Girls Orbit Me"

@  Sabrblade : (15 January 2019 - 12:59 PM)

So too is the old Super Mario Bros movie

@  wonko the sane? : (15 January 2019 - 12:28 PM)

I went and looked up the term "isekai"... that's not actually as bad as I thought it was going to be.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 January 2019 - 12:19 PM)

I'm not sure, but the cartoon segments of The Super Mario Bros. Super Show are.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 12:12 PM)

Wait. A. Minute. Is Blaster Master an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (15 January 2019 - 08:49 AM)

*Dragon Slave*

@  Xellos : (15 January 2019 - 06:22 AM)

I used to use a pic like that as my avatar for years, but that... is a secret.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 January 2019 - 02:07 AM)

Is Flatland an isekai?

@  MEDdMI : (14 January 2019 - 11:16 PM)

@Xellos Every time I see you post, I picture Xellos' infuriating smug grin and finger waggling with the "sore wa hi*mi*tsu*desu <3"

@  Waspinator : (14 January 2019 - 09:50 PM)

The Last Starfighter is also one of those

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

Astronaut gets shot through a wornhole and ends up on a living starship full of escaped alien prisoners.

@  Cybersnark : (14 January 2019 - 09:28 PM)

I realized a few months ago that Farscape is a sci-fi-based Isekai.

@  Sabrblade : (14 January 2019 - 09:03 PM)

The Thor movies and Enchanted, as well.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 January 2019 - 08:45 PM)

@xellos We get to many of those in Hollywood movies.

I had the exact same reaction.

 

Also, tangentially related to the Xbox, Sony finally relented and is allowing Crossplay in Fortnite, with future titles possibly having crossplay as well.

 

Now, it's nice that the Xbox has been supportive of this feature, but really the thanks should go to Nintendo for defying all expectations and being into it, basically blowing holes in every argument Sony put forth.

BC is progressing at a nice pace for me. Other than most of the Lego games which I doubt I'll ever play again anyway, the standouts for me are the FF13 trilogy, DMC 1-4 and the Arkham games.

 

Well, there's also a whole bunch of Transformers and Marvel games, but seeing as the publisher for those - Activision - no longer have the rights, we've got zero chance of getting those on BC.

So the Inside Xbox for X018 happened, and while it was certainly no E3, some cool stuff got announced/revealed.

 

The biggest news is that Xbox is acquiring Obsidian Entertainment (KOTOR 2, Alpha Protocol, Fallout: New Vegas, Pillars of Eternity) and InXile Entertainment (Wasteland 2, The Bard's Tale series).  Xbox is also bringing back the Summer of Arcade (In "Winter of Arcade" form) with titles to be announced at this years Game Awards on December 6th.  (I'm guessing Below, Ashen and Outer Wilds might be on that list)

 

In Backwards Compatibility news, we didn't get any OG titles, but all three Final Fantasy 13 titles are coming to BC with Xbox One X Enhancements.  Civilization Revolution is also getting X Enhancements.

 

 

They also announced several titles coming to gamepass in the coming months

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice
Void Bastards
Ori and the Blind Forest
Ori and the Will of the Wisps
Thief of Thieves: Season One 
Kingdom: Two Crowns
Aftercharge
Supermarket Shriek 
Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden 
Pathologic 2
Secret Neighbor 
The Good Life 
Agents of Mayhem
MXGP3
Thomas Was Alone
 

The first batch of "Mouse and Keyboard" Xbox One titles was announced

Bomber Crew

Children of Morta

DayZ, Minion Master

Deep Rock Galactic

Fortnite 

Moonlighter

Strange Brigade

Vigor

Warface

Warframe

Wargroove 

Warhammer: Vermintide 2

War Thunder

X-Morph Defense

 

(How many games start with "War" anyway?  Might as well throw Warcraft on that list)

 

They also showed off DLC for a ton of games, showed off some third party stuff and showed off Crackdown 3's cloud-processed multiplayer mode for the first time in like 3 years.  Overall, I though it was a pretty good show, though there's a few things I expected and didn't get (OG Xbox titles, Sunset Overdrive relaunch, Gears Tactics Xbox announcement, Battletoads footage) but oh well.

Batman and DMC 1-4 probably won't happen because they remastered those games.

Huh, I hadn't realised that the DMC HD collection got their own release on current gen, so yeah, I guess that's probably not going to happen. Why make things easier for those who supported you in the past when you can just get them to rebuy everything for the third time...

 

Return to Arkham, I'd forgotten about.

The 2010 AvP game? It's by far the worst Alien/Predator game made, and I'm including Colonial Marines.

 

Unleashed is nice, I wonder if we'll ever see Sonic 06.  :p
