    In layman's terms, yes - It's a Windows application that can be used to run Android apps.

    So it replicates the console to download games made for Android, its kinda confusing for me

    Yeah, I think it replicates the Android OS used for phones. It kinda confuses me too, but that seems like it's the case.

    I'm just bumping evanwoo10 evanwoo10 's thread because its been quiet there recently and I like it
    So why do people hate Illumination Entertainment, I seriously don't get the hate. While I wouldn't say their filmography has any masterpieces in them, films like Despicable Me 1+2/Minions, Sing, and Secret Life of Pets have loads of charm to them and have some genuinely great moments. Sure I wouldn't say they are revolutionary, but they are pretty good pieces of entertainment with a lot of wholesome heart to them. They do have some stinkers, such as the Suess movies (Once-ler notwithstanding) and Despicable Me 3 but at least they are consistent. Plus I don't hate the Minions, they are a mascot and a mascot should be marketed, plus in all honesty, Illumination hasn't pushed the Minions as much as they did a decade ago. So can someone tell me why people hate Illumination?
    My favorite thing about Smashboards is that 75 percent of the chat isnt about Smash Bros
    I'm surprised there aren't any Angry Birds Fangames, there are mods and stuff but I never say any from the ground up original fangame, since the physics would be easy to port I think it's all just a matter of graphics and bird roster.

    I think it is probably a case of 1. the physics being really precise (if a game involves physics, you can gaurantee there's a lot more going on under the hood than outside), and 2. Angry Birds' fandom at it's peak being split up between the really young and really old, with the prime age for coding and making professional-level fangames now being the kids who thought they were "too old" for AB, while the adult peak-era AB fandom likely already had jobs when it first came out and the kid peak-era AB fandom are just now getting to grips with code.

    Hmm yeah, but since the new remake is on Unity I think people could just rip the physics or make a close approximation, with the new goodwill involving the remakes I think Angry Birds will have a resurgence in popularity enough to make fanworks.

    You have no idea how much I hate Silver from Angry Birds 2, this gray chicken is possibly the worst playable character I have ever used of all time, ask me why in the coments
    I think the reason there are less premium mobile games is that you can only gain so much money from having an upfront cost of 99 cents, plus there is the store getting a cut of profits, so I can get why mobile gaming is focusing on microtransactions (not that its a good thing they are.)

    Why do you think there is a 3 99 Steam version, you can only make so much money from a one time purchase, which I think why multiplayer games are getting free to play, to get a constant stream of revenue.

    The Steam version was released on December 22 2014, which I think is before free mobile games really started to take off. And making it free and ad supported would probably just cause way too much controversy for what it's worth.

    I still am impressed that after Angry Birds and Plants vs Zombies became free to play that Geometry Dash is still 1 99 on the app store, same with Where's my Water.

    I'm going to make a series of posts praising parts of movies that aren't critically liked, I might make this a regular thing, tell me your opnion on these points



    So I am part of the later camp that thinks that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is better than the Willie Wonka version. And in today's day and age I think there are some moments that aged pretty well.

    1. Burton's gothic art style fits the book more, the orginal book is about a bunch of brats vying for a trip to Wonka's castle so it would make sense that the world in this movie is colorful with a dark undertone like the kids.

    2. It gives more context to Wonka's character, while mystery is good and all Wonka should really be fleshed more as a character, Gene Wilder is always memed as a sort of phycopath but this Wonka I belive is superior due to his more fleshed out characterization.

    3. Charlie's family is also more deeper, while we dont see them much we do see distinct characters who seem relaistic in a world like this. Uncle Phil having a personal reason to visit the factory also gives him much more character debt.

    4. The kids are more fleshed out and in a detail in the end, their punishments are proportional to their behaviors. TV gets stretched for cheating the system for everyone else, Veruca's dad grows a backbone from her bratty behavior, Augustus only gets his clothes dirty due to him being more a victim of stupidity rather than malice, and Violet is the sole one to gain any benefit from her predicament much to her mother's dismay as she was the one who gets punished.

    5. It predicted Karens
    Okay I am seeing a lot of conflicting posts about the multiversus roster and I really need to know if this is true of not. Is Gus Fring in the roster?
    So I guess Pixar is making an animated adaption of Fireboy and Watergirl I guess now.
    Why does apple get all the cool stuff, they got a from the ground up remake of angry birds and an exclusive movie and game streaming service with the former I think being the only place to watch anything Charlie Brown related
    FazDude
    FazDude
    There's still a few Peanuts movies on Hulu for some reason, but I think the Charlie Brown exclusivity otherwise has something to do with a buyout.

    (that said, none of that matters if you want to hop on a ship and sail the seas, if you catch my drift)
    Glubbfubb
    Glubbfubb
    Apple TV I think is the worst streaming service of them all because not only do you need to pay to get esclusive shows, you also need to make sure you have the right devices to even stream the shows

    Edit you can but it still sucks that Apple Arcade isnt on non apple products

    The Peanuts movie is on Disney+
    The Star Wars Prequels has the best culture, I e the best species introduced and planets originated from this era

    The OG Trilogy has the best set design and effects

    The Sequel Trilogy has the best ship and building design of all the films
    I think with free-to-play games, if most of the content could be unlocked through strategy and not waiting Im totally fine with that.
    I am going to be controversial here, the Sequel trilogy is actually okay if you consider Force Awakens and Last Jedi as a duology
    I once made a concept for an episode series for the Amazing World of Gumball, you know how in Family Guy they parodied the Original Trilogy, well in this case Gumball and co were to parody the Prequel Trilogy, but the twist is that Gumball's family was the Sith with Gumball as Darth Maul, or in this case he would be called Darth Ball, with Tobias being the clone army, Darwin being the Battle Droids (Darwin is also Darth Ball's personal battle droid bodyguard) Richard as the Emporer, and Nicole as Dooku (there was even a joke pointing fun at the then-current craze of remaking movies with a genderswapped cast). Also Jabba the Hutt was played by Prinicble Brown and Hector was the Ranco. They would have been called The Phantom, The Clones, and The Sith. Does anyone else want this concept to happen?

    Ther is a new wiki for documentatating fanon works out now that I have been following closely. It's like Fnatendo but for gaming as a whole and without dealing with the morality of dealing with Fandom. If anyone is wanting to make their threads as wiki articles they are happy to do so. Hopefully we can meet each other.
    Opinion, if Luke and Leia were to be switch at birth (Luke is on Alderaan and Leia is on Tatooine) what do you think would change in the saga of Star Wars.

    Leia would pretty much be an even cooler than she is. But then what would become of Han?
    KneeOfJustice99
    KneeOfJustice99
    Luke would probably be killed after Vader did some digging into the family tree of the Alderaanian Royal Family

    Leia proceeds never to do anything notable and is eventually eaten by Jawas.

    Lando ends up leading the Rebellion after losing a bet with Ackbar on a drunken night out and they somehow still win

    Remember when Angry Birds had its own line of Amiibo before it was cool
    Is it wrong to like a everything about the game, (story, music, graphics) EXCEPT the gameplay
    You know am I the only one who wants a Star Wars vs Capcom

    LucasArts VS CAPCOM, if only so we could also get Guybrush, Sam & Max, Indiana Jones, etc.

    All in! Some match-up ideas of mine:
    • Luke Skywalker VS Ryu (simple as easy to guess for flagship franchise heroes)
    • Mega Man (Classic or X) obviously goes against Boba Fett or someone else from Star Wars
    • Darth Vader VS Bilstein from Star Gladiator (think about it)
    • Indiana Jones VS Amaterasu (some mythology/artifact stuff; even her mirror is in this book) or Arthur (not only references a king himself, but the Grail Knight from The Last Crusade)
    • Purple Tentacle (Maniac Mansion/Day of the Tentacle) VS Alien Green (Battle Circuit)
    • Guybrush Threepwood VS Zack & Wiki, or if you want to make a deep cut, Momotaru from Pirate Ship Higemaru
    • LeChuck (utilizes all of his transformations, skeleton crew and a pirate ship) VS Ruby Heart (mistaking Ruby for Elaine?)
    • Bobbin Threadbare (LOOM) VS Tessa
    • Ben Throttle VS a Rival Schools rep, like Akira Kazama? (gang fights and a biker)
    • Zeke (Zombies Ate My Neighbors) VS Leon S. Kennedy
    • Zak McKracken VS Frank West (simple, they're reporters)
    • Manny Calavera (Grim Fandango) VS Demitri Maximoff (for a change)
    • Sam and Max VS Phoenix Wright (cause why the heck not?)

    So I was researching Star Wars and I come to the realization of that George Lucus is an amazing creator of fictional cultures and worlds but not dialogue. I will admit that the prequels should have had better dialogue but the creativity and diversity in the worlds and cultures are shown on display from the Trade Federation, the Gungans Civilization, Geonosis, Coruscant, Mustafar, personally. I think that's why the sequels falter, they don't have the whimsy of seeing new worlds, concepts, and cultures and instead fill it with blatant pandering to the fans and occasional wokeness. What are your thoughts on this?
    Is it weird that I watch Star Wars junk a lot when there is some sort of political controversy on the news
    Remeber that time when everyone was ashamed of anyone who loved the Star Wars prequels and compares that to today where there are tons of people who declare how much they adore the prequel trilogy

    There are a lot of things in all forms of media that were hated a lot at one point in time but loved like crazy now. Kind of makes it hard to take complaints and statements of hatred about things in the modern day seriously not going to lie.
    Okay, so I'm having a stupid debate with someone on Discord and were debating who would win in a legitimate fight if they use all of their canon abilities in all forms of media. The Koopalings or the Deadly Six, can someone give me an in-depth explanation on which side would win.
    Glubbfubb
    Glubbfubb
    Well, those machines were commandeered from eggman, this is a fight using only stuff they canonically own, the koopalings have clown cars and the zeti do not. My theory was that each koopaling could counter another member of the six
    psb123
    psb123
    Well that is a point in favor of the Koopalings then. So the only machines the Deadly Six would have are the ones they used in Lost World. Including the Energy Boosts from Eggman's draining machine.

    The clown cars are still machines, the zeti can still take control of other technology

    I can't say I'm a big fan of minions but minion hate is more annoying then the minions themselves.

    People just feel the need to hate on anything popular with kids and "normies" sometimes.
