  • After watching the Tom and Jerry movie, I must say...

    The 3rd Yo-Kai Watch movie did a way better job of the cartoon characters in real life story than any movie Hollywood has ever made under the same premise with the possible exceptions of Sonic, Detective Pikachu and Roger Rabbit.

    I challenge anyone to argue otherwise.

    If we're talking about purely visuals, this looks to be on the same level as Sonic and Roger Rabbit (maybe a little worse than Sonic), but definitely not as immersive as Detective Pikachu.
    In terms of story...well, I haven't seen any Yo-Kai Watch movies, so I wouldn't know. But if it's anywhere on the level of the anime (which I have seen some of), then I'm certain it's good.
    "UGH, I HATE people making these jokes again and again about Mario disappearing on March 31st! They should stop."

    Hmmm.

    Interesting.

    So whose fault is it again that people can MAKE those jokes in the first place?

    Oh, yeah.

    It's Nintendo's fault.

    Seems silly to get angry at the people rightfully making fun of someone or something for being stupid.

    The proper response wouldn't be to tell them to not make jokes. The proper response would be to vocally complain for them to NOT make games unavailable after March 31st for seemingly no reason. Then they can't make those jokes. It's very simple. If the action they're making fun of wasn't taken in the first place, they wouldn't be able to make fun of it.

    If you stop DOING stupid things and stop SAYING stupid things then they can't RIDICULE you for those stupid things.

    I agree that Nintendo's anti-consumer practices are the reason people make jokes like that. Doesn't mean I have to think they're funny.

    Nobody said you had to think they're funny.
    Nobody saying you can't ignore them and go about your day if you don't like them or blame Nintendo that they can even make those jokes.
    Just finished watching all of One Punch Man Season 2 and caught up on the original webcomic. Was reminded why it's one of my favorite series of all. Hope Season 3 gets proper confirmation someday.

    Despite the hate for Season 2, the writing is still there. All that went down was the animation budget. Aside from that, Season 2 is probably just as good as Season 1.
    I really hate when someone tries to act like people that don't fall under their illusion of normalcy or conformity are evil or should be avoided if the unorthodox things they're doing aren't hurting anyone.

    I dealt with alot of mistreatment in my youth for my abnormal obsessions with SpongeBob and Pokemon.

    Holy **** you literally just summed up my experience with my 4th grade social skills program.

    The teacher Cindy always got mad when I talked about Pokemon, so I sat down with another kid and asked him what his favorite show was. He said Spongebob, so we talked about that for a bit. Not even 3 minutes later, Cindy comes back and gets mad that we've been "talking about Spongebob too much". *****, what DO you want us to talk about??? I ultimately left that program after my father decided it wasn't for me. I also got into frequent fights with one kid, and another kid randomly decided to bite me in the arm during a group meeting. Fun times.

    I think Smash fans that were upset about Byleth and now upset at Pyra-Mythra should have used these opportunities to learn to be smarter with their money.

    You didn't HAVE to buy the Fighter Pass before knowing whom all the characters would be.

    You chose to and now it's your own fault for paying for certain things you didn't want.

    I didn't buy EITHER Fighter Pass. Someone bought the first one for me as a gift.

    I have less to be upset about cuz I spent money on other stuff.

    The problem is that people build unrealistic expectations for a particular character(s) inclusion viability and then get angry as if they were somehow cheated if they don't get in. Of the thousands of different characters that could potentially get in the game the odds that your one specific or even handful of specific characters getting in is very small. This is especially true of random niche characters from franchises few have ever heard of. Pretty much every DLC so far has been from current popular franchises or iconic historical franchises and not a side character from an obscure game that has a cult following at most. If you don't send in death threats to the head of whatever lotto you play whenever you don't win then the same thinking should be applied here.

    The inverse of complaining when a character does get in is just sheer selfishness and entitlement. I wasn't thrilled when I heard Steve was in and my thoughts on him went from "Zoomer pandering cynical ploy to increase sales" to "Wow his moveset actually is pretty neat" to "The character was actually Minecart all along" but I didn't get bent out of shape and complain all over the internet. There was brief mild annoyance and then I didn't actually care anymore.

    I don't care about Zelda.
    I didn't plan on buying Skyward Sword HD.
    I never did.
    Still, hearing Skyward Sword Hd is 60 USD while the Wii U version is 20 USD AND has a MyNintendoRewards discount that costs 50 gold coins for a 40% discount, putting it 12 USD is most certainly going to make me raise an eyebrow at ultimately paying 5 times the proce for a port.

    Yeah, that was pretty dirty of Nintendo to have never release those GBA games on the 3DS Eshop. It makes me wonder if porting these games on the Eshop or Online service is super easy and they're just too lazy to actually add more retro games.

    on the 3DS it wasn't actually "super easy" from what i remember, it used a lot of the processing power of the 3DS iirc to run the emulator and then the GBA games effectively, hence why you couldn't put the 3ds into sleep mode while playing them like you could the snes and nes games. apparently they really threw the emulator together quickly to get it out there. I suspect probably by someway using the 3DS's ability to play DS games. Basically emulating the entire DS system GBA function and all.

    Now of course it was pretty low of them to never release them on either the wii u shop or 3DS shop. But hey...least you can find them all fairly easily in secondhand stores.

    Or on the internet.

    In other words, they put the emulation together very sloppily and were STILL able to do it anyway.
    I love how Twitter users try SO hard to claim successful Japanese media is just as """"political"""" as financially failing western mediums by trying to use examples of things like Godzilla or Metal Gear Solid.

    Both those things are far more grounded in history and science, which are completely separate from politics.

    Godzilla, at its core, is just a simple message of "Nuclear weapons are dangerous." History has proven that and it's a simple scientific fact. You don't have to be Democrat or Republican or anything really for nuclear energy to still be deadly.

    Stop reaching for or forcing political messages in everything.

    It's been years since I've played a MGS game but I'm pretty sure all of the political stuff being addressed in the games has no parallels with what's been causing the decline of the western mediums of today. Japan doesn't care about western politics anyway, and it's a good thing they don't.

    Japan only cares enough about western politics to treat them like a subtle joke as far as I can tell and otherwise doesn't care about them.

    "Political" in this context just means very specific American culture war stuff. Japanese media can get very political, but you need the appropriate cultural context and background to appreciate it. MGS was very political and heavily criticized American imperialism and Military Industrial Complex as well as various other aspects of American society.
    Spent my Valentine's Day with the one I love most of all:

    My digital copy of Yo-Kai Watch 3.

    Even after all these years and so many hours already put into it, the game still retains so much content to offer. I love it.
    This made for some good self-reflection
    Replaying Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth on New Game Plus with a completed Field Guife gives you complete freedom to choose and raise any monster you want from the beginning and I love that kind of freedom.
    Apparently Smash Twitter for the past few days was crying over ahegao hoodies and falsely accusing loli and anime fans of being pedophiles only for some other big name in the Smash community like Raffi X to get ousted as an actual pedophile.

    Twitter seems to have a pretty constant pattern where groups that claim harmless fiction is a problem are the ones with the problem.
    The high quality of these animations brimming with personality and the songs that go with them always make me smile.
    One thing I will always appreciate Yo-Kai Watch for is how every one of its monsters has a memorable personality and despite the game being so challenging, they still manage to make almost every monster usable, either in the casual main game, the tough and challenging late game and postgame and even giving a ton of lower Rank guys a way to shine in the metagame.


    Seems Monster Sanctuary will be getting a New Game Plus feature soon. Can't wait to replay it since I'm getting close to the end of the game's story.

    It'll be even more fun with this little dude in my team.
    Being pro-gatekeeping and a fan of a niche series is a match made in heaven.

    Their threats of "You make me not want to play the game!" are empty and amount to less than nothing since they were never interested in the series to begin with and if they're someone undesirable to associate with in the fandoms they're already in, then all the better.

    Plus, if the game is complex and challenging, it will do its own job of filtering out the weak so you don't have to.

    You win either way.
    I seem to notice a pattern where that guys whom defend Pokemon SWSH when pointed out to them games like Yo-Kai Watch 3 have 752 monsters in one game and Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 3 have 712 monsters in one game, they'll 9 times out of 10 try to deflect that counterpoint and ignore it and not even challenge it. I've only ever seen one person try to challenge that point and all they could ever say was "Akshually the animations in these games aren't THAT good."

    Pretty funny.

    In my opinion, you lose any and all rights to use the word "weeaboo" as an insult if you yourself enjoy or praise any kind of Japanese media or entertainment.
    DrCoeloCephalo
    DrCoeloCephalo
    Some do and that's fine but I have seen people that try to use it as an insult whilst having a profile dedicated to some kind of Japanese entertainment, which is silly.
    Fuzzy Pickles!
    Fuzzy Pickles!
    Except, not really. There's a big difference between being a fan of Japanese media and entertainment and being a weeaboo. A weeaboo is someone who thinks that the world revolves around Japan, particularly its media and entertainment, see the society as inherently better than others, and talk about wanting to live there (but never making the move to do so). That's a problem because it blinds them to the flaws of the Japanese culture while also ignoring the benefit of their own home culture. It also doesn't factor in that franchises like Sonic the Hedgehog are geared primarily towards a Western audience (and should be seen as a lesson for how Japanese culture can appeal to Westerners going forward).

    I speak at someone who was a weeaboo when I was younger, it's not an inaccurate insult. Rude, sure, but it's a call to get someone totally infatuated with Japan to grow up for a reason.
    RetrogamerMax
    RetrogamerMax
    Yep. Japan's cool, but they have restless work hours and overworked culture as most Japanese only sleep a couple of hours a day or less from what I've heard. I would visit Japan someday, but I'm not entirely sure I would ever live there as I struggle to sleep and only getting that short amount to do so? No way I could do that.
    Ultimate fans: "Man, I hate slow, campy gameplay and playstyles. I'm going to keep complaining about it instead of doing anything about it!"

    "Well, with Project M and Melee-"

    Ultimate fans: "Never mind, I actually like diversity to gameplay and playstyles more."
    I've been getting better at aiming my bombs and switching between my grenade and sticky launcher in Team Fortress 2 and I'm pretty proud of that.

    The Early Access has gotten only better with each update from what my friends that play it tell me, it still retains over 1,000 active players which is good for an indie game, the trade market is actually fair and good, stat maxing has gotten more convenient, it's only going to get bigger and better once the game comes to official full PC and console release and they've been hosting tons of tournaments for the Early Access that have been looking so great that apparently even high level Pokemon VGC Doubles players praise it for its depth and skill.

    It looks very fun indeed.
    Game Freak devs: "People are just too busy to waste time on games these days."

    Also Game Freak devs: "Yeah, let's make sure to make these cutscenes and dialogue unskippable to pad time. Let's make sure the animations and battle sequences take longer than they have to as well. What's a fast forward button?"
    I find it kinda funny anytime you bring up playing other monster collector games to Pokemon fans, they think you have to "abandon" Pokemon to play something else. As if playing multiple games in a genre is some kind of forbidden, evil tabboo in a cult war where you have to choose sides or something.

    Ya hear that, Sonic fans? You even DARE to play Super Mario, Crash, Spyro, Donkey Country or Wario Land and you are heretic for just "abandoning" us like that. Lol.
    Outside of nostalgia that just blinds a person and sales that don't mean squat to game quality, Pokemon doesn't have any merits of its own.

    Plus, nostalgia only goes so far when there are older games in the genre.

    Any merits Pokemon WOULD have are either gone or cut and any that DO remain are handled better by anything else in the genre.

    Still love Pokemon tho.

    I absolutely love Pokémon, and all I want is the Pokémon Company to let Gamefreak take its time and fully develop a finished game without having to make sacrifices such as cutting Pokémon, a bland story, and lackluster visuals in some areas. It made me sad seeing all of the backlash the new games were (understandably) getting. Dynamax was also an awful and unbalanced new mechanic that probably took most of the development time to create and finish. The only good thing I have to say about it is that I can make good use out of it in games of Champ'd Up with a Gigantamax Karen drawing.

    Janx_uwu Janx_uwu Indeed, and if The Pokemon Company and Game Freak had the level of game design quality and larger staff the less profitable companies like Square Enix and Level-5 clearly have or the animation quality and storytelling companies like Genius Sonority clearly have even though they can afford all these things, we wouldn't be having these issues with Pokemon in the first place.
    Pushing an opinion AS a fact and forming an opinion AROUND facts are 2 completely different things people seem to confuse.

    Opinions can be wrong. Facts can't.
    Metacritic has been proven multiple times to be a broken and unbalanced reviewing system where people completely ignorant of a game and/or haven't bought it or played it can review the games with the metascores being paid reviews

    So, needless to say that there are instances when it makes me laugh when people try to use it as a reliable source on game quality.

    Radio silence and people only proving me right. Good.
    YouTube randomly recommended me tournament videos of TemTem and I've been learning more about the game ever since.

    No random damage rolls. Status effects that are balanced. Buffs and debuffs that actually retain momentum, HP viewable in percentages, switching being even more of a commitment and risk and so many other good things.

    It's nothing but pure, accountable skill.

    DrCoeloCephalo
    DrCoeloCephalo
    Pokelego999 Pokelego999 Actually it wouldn't because you have so many different health and defense stats to take into account. Watching your attack do over 50.1% damage lets you know for a fact you will get a 2HKO as opposed to trying to calculate if you did from a big weird number on top of having to calculate the defense stats with the ingame formula. It's just an extra inconvenience that forces you take yourself out of the game to go to a calculator. Why do you think Pokemon Showdown uses percentages instead of numbers in the first place?
