  • All I see is how 2020 has been a horrible year so far and, folks, we haven’t even gotten to the American election yet. We will either see four more years of Trump or four more years of Trump and Republicans/Conservatives crying and ranting against the deep state and trying to undermine a Biden presidency. Or we could get a civil war.

    At this stage, the most one can hope for is a guy that's just inefficient, and not actively harmful.

    Sometimes I'm glad that my system of government is so weird. It's two countries in one! And no-one knows whether to call it a country or region or part of another country.

    Biden is perfectly capable of undermining his own presidency thank you very much.

    Though tbh whoever does end up winning will have the stigma of the coming years where things will really start to fall apart. That may very well damage their party for years to come. It feels kind of ironic that they would be fighting for ownership over a disaster neither is capable of handling and calling that a victory.

    I'm gonna laugh if they are secretly trying to let the other win and it becomes a race to the bottom. Someone should write a premise for a movie/book/show along these lines.
    As always, I rewatch Rick and Morty after a new season comes out. I first watch the new season and then rewatch it from the first so I can get context for the new season.

    Here’s my hot takes. Spoilers ahead:

    - Evil Morty is the original Morty
    - Morty isn’t necessarily always Rick’s grandson in all the timelines. In the timeline that R&M happens, though, Morty is is Rick’s “grandson”.
    - What makes our Rick “the most Rickiest Rick” is his Attachment to his grandson which was the product of the union between Beth and Jerry. Something all Rick’s seem to disdain. So they try to circumvent that by breeding Morty’s in the Citadel and regulating them to “sidekicks and partners” as opposed to grandchildren. That’s why Rick mentions there are very few versions of Earth that's just like theirs and that’s because there are few where Morty is Rick’s grandson. That and they are humans as we saw in Wasp World. Nothing suggests that Morty and Rick are related in Fascist World, Fascist Shrimp World, etc.
    - Rick engineered his entire family, including Jerry, sometime before Season 1 due to an unexplained tragic event. That’s why everyone is so complete at the start of it but becomes broken as it progresses and into Season 2
    - Each member represents a facet of Rick this fueling this theory: Morty is Rick’s regret and aversion to aging/desire for innocence, Beth’s desire for love and recognition from those close to her, Jerry’s humanity and vulnerability, and Summer’s vanity and desire to feel important. These are all facets of Rick that surfaces throughout the series.
    -They lost one Earth timeline to the Cronenburgs in Season 1 (the R&M equivalent to the Ocarina of Time chronology split) but they also had to jump ship when Morty could hear squirrels and discovered they were planning on taking over Earth. Rick insinuates they will have to find a new Earth timeline due to this. This of course was one of Morty’s erased memories so we can assume they found a way to reverse it.
    -Dr. Wong was 100% right about her psychoanalysis of Rick in the Pickle Rick episode in Season 3 and her appearance in Season 4 finale was a clear indication of this considering How much Rick messed up due to his own issues in that episode.
    - We can also all agree that Rick is a ****ty father.
    - We can also all agree that R&M has amazing music and this song is one of the best. Gets you on the feels really hard. Especially as you ponder how Rick tried to move galaxies and the universe for his daughter, created worlds for her, made her inventions, and even cloning her so she can live the life of a wife/mother as well as an space adventurer/mercenary but ultimately failed as a father.

    Why do I feel sad now...Rick also ends each season being depressed and getting owned by his own family.

    Huh... These are some really big takes you're talking about, also poor Rick.
    When I first came to Japan, I lived six years in Kumamoto prefecture in Kyushu. In terms of Pokémon, I lived around Mt Chimney in Hoenn. My wife is from There and we still have tons of friends and family who live there. We don’t anymore and we love closer to Tokyo now (to the northern slopes of Mt Moon to be exact). We were shocked to the find the entire prefecture of Kumamoto to be under a disaster emergency due to intense flooding from torrential rains. It seems my wife’s hometown is Ok for the moment but the city we lived (different from her home time) in is currently underwater. Thankfully, my friends who live there are safe and have been evacuated.

    https://www.google.co.jp/amp/s/www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/news/20200704_05/amp.html

    After the deadly earthquakes of 2016 that destroyed large areas of Kumamoto in a span of five months; it’s sad to see the prefecture get more damage and hope the neighboring ones of Oita, Miyazaki, and Kagoshima are also safe and as well as the rest of Japan as this massive storm surges eastward. My family and I are perfectly safe though. We won’t be getting this storm surge as we are far too far north. Very worried for our friends and family who live in areas prone to flooding.
    Regardless if we get Dante, Monster Hunter, Chris Redfield, Phoenix Wright, Viewtiful Joe, Amaterasu, or whatever, I really want Capcom-themed Mii Outfits. These are my main picks. It could be any of these and I be happy:

    Chinese company that's notorious for spyware. Game companies often partner with them for the smell of that sweet China money. Hell, Tencent was partially responsible for why Blizzard banned Blitzchung when he peacefully protested. The China money was too much to resist apparently.

    Tencent is one of the world’s largest companies, the largest video game company, and a tech conglomerate located in China. They own League of a Legends and partial ownership of Fortnite, PUBG, Ubisoft, and Activision-Blizzard. The later is one reason why Blizzard Initially declined to pay earnings made from Hearthstone to a certain player after they made pro-HK democracy statements after winning. They decision was reversed after intense backlash. The CEO of Tencent is said to be a master at “copying” and is known to never innovate but to simply piggyback. He’s perfectly fine with this and it ties with his entire business model. He’s also deeply connected to the ruling communist party of China and, like TikTok, there are allegations that they give user information, especially non-Chinese users, to the Communist Party. As someone who is Pro-Chinese, Anti-CPC/Winnie the Pooh, but also very pro-HK Democracy, having a Pokemon MOBA made by Tencent is extremely alarming.
    I’m still in shock that we got Vault Boy as a Mii Costume. I love Fallout and have loved it since it’s beginnings. I even like 4 and 76 despite their shortcomings. I don’t even mind Shelter despite Youtube cramming it down our throats every second. While Vault Boy wasn’t on my most wanted list (Dragonborn or Doomslayer gets that spot), a Vault Boy Mii Costume is amazing. The ending shot of him sitting with Duck Hunt had me laughing so hard. It was poetic. Sad though we didnt get an accompanying music but Fallout isn’t known for its original score and rather by its old timey music.
    Excited to see which ARMS is coming to Smash but I’ve been thinking about what new characters might come if we get an ARMS2 announcement. Here’s my choices:

    Updated mascot characters for ARMS2. While Spring Man and Ribbon Girl would be present, I think having two new ones to fit. To contrast the “good” and “clean” image of these two, here are my ideas for the two mascots:

    Dirge, an ARMS fighter who has a chip on his shoulder. Chaotically good, he has a punkish vibe and hates Spring Man and his “squeaky clean” personality. His arms are based on “ammo belts” which have the Explosive element to them.

    Rosetta, an ARMS Fighter who is an ex-spy on the run from her former employers. She seeks to clear her name by fighting in the ARMS tournament. She will do anything to clear her name. She is more chaotically neutral. Her arms are based on thorny vines which have a Plant element to them which deals damage and saps away stamina and speed.

    From here on out, the next Fighters would just have a small blurb and what their arms are made of/elemental affinity without the back story and reasons for fighting:

    Captain Hijro: A city firefighter who is a one-man fire department. He uses his skills in combat with arms made of water hoses and his high-pressure Water element.

    Jethro: Reach for the sky. This Western outlaw is all about making gold and could be entering the tournament for a potential benefactor. Aside from riding on a horse, he also has arms made from a Lasso!

    Virtue: It’s unknown why but researchers believe it’s a genetic trait. Whatever it is, Virtue’s arms have increased by pairs of three giving her a total of 8 arms! This benevolent abhors violence against the downtrodden and uses her Light based arms.

    SpeedBooster: This famous racer is renowned for his speed both on and off the track. He’s so hard to keep track of that he’s called the “Extended Blue!” His arms are a mix of check-pattern flags and asphalt with yellow speed arrows.

    Tenor: Tenor is a world renowned musician who finds inspiration during the heat of fighting. He’s responsible for all the great musical pieces in ARMS! He fights using arms made from an Accordion which has a Sound element. This weakens elemental properties from other ARMS.
    Peaceful protestors protesting outside the WH forced Donnie to go into bunker mode. Now, imagine if everyone started to storm the W....wait...I could get in trouble for this. Nevermind.

    On that note, it feels like Storm Area 51 was like 3 years ago. Anyone else feels like that? Good times; back when we could all socialize without breathing apparatuses made of fiber and clothe.
    Japanese Prime Minister Abe officially declared that the government will be lifting any restrictions due to COVID19 including reopening of all businesses, resuming events, opening public places like movie theaters, and easing on social distancing measures. All businesses currently under orders of remote working will resume normal working hours at the place of work. International travel to and from the country will reopen based on other countries COVID19 outlook but America, China, Russia, Italy, Spain, UK,, and Brazil will having restrictions placed for the unforeseeable future.
    I definitely think police brutality is something that should be addressed and corrected at the highest form of government and that the Black community experiences unprecedented amount of racism, discrimination, and prejudice. However, I do want to ask people to keep in mind another racial minority that, as of late, has been getting a lot of hate and racism thrown at them with barely little push back. This is the Asian-American population. Just within the week; there has been an uptick on attacks on Asians due in part because of COVID19. There’s the letters pinned on Asian households in SF telling them to go back home, there are the Asian families who were harassed at parks, and, recently, a Japanese store owner who received a letter that if he didn’t go back to Japan, they would blow up his store. My friend, who is Japanese, was called the racist word associated with Chinese people at a supermarket. She even said people laughed at her as she left the store. Another friend, who is Thai, was spat on in New York and was called “a diseased rat”. As someone who is quarter Japanese and who is married to a Japanese person and has two young kids; this worries me as we will be moving back to the States next summer. Yes, Asians aren’t getting shot dead by cops for simple offenses but they have been unfairly targeted by racist people due to COVID19. Sadly, these news stories often get buried and, beyond a single article, nothing else happens and gets pushed off to the side. This goes along with all of the marginalized groups that truly what makes America such an amazing country. Please don’t think I believe the focus should be on Asians as someone who is technically apart of that community. I just hope more light is shed on these offenses rather than it being a case of “read and forget about it”.
    Would you eat a fish eyeball that was in fish soup? Cause I wouldn’t but my daughter just did.

    My wife made stir fried pork and green peppers, rice, and fish soup though it was kind of like miso soup with vegetables a fish heads. I’m an adventurous eater and have eaten pufferfish, maggots, locusts, cats, dogs, durians, fermented ducks, etc. I’ve eaten fish eyes but it’s not something I enjoy. So I gave it to my daughter since she likes them.
    Took my soon-to-be three year old to the kids play area that just reopened so she can goof off. It was limited to 30 minutes for ten families max for about 8 bucks. A little before our time was up, she found Pac-Man. She stated to play it and got a hang of the controls but a ghost eventually got her. This prompted her to scream and make a mad dash to the exits before I could catch her. For the next three hours, she would say how scary it was. Even now, 12 hours later, it’s still scary. Doesn’t help she left her favorite stuffed rabbit toy at the supermarket.

    So she’s very afraid of Pac-Man now.
    Thanks to the Japanese state media, this is how BLM is perceived now in the minds of the population:
    https://youtu.be/WqmII4DuJO0

    The intent is good but the entire presentation is totally uncalled for. A lot of this video contains the stereotypes of the black community that is well known in Japan. It’s just a tad bit shy of Mr Popo.
    Wait wait...so some people think Mr. Floyd’s killer, Derek Chauvin’s wife and the other officer involved, Tou Thang, are related?!? Because they both happen to be asian and both are from Laos??

    Not only is the Asian-American community getting nasty letters and harassment for “importing the virus” but now this? Ridiculous. Shouldn’t be surprised though, more than half of the white side of my family still think my wife is “Chinese or something” after ten years. (My great grandmother was Japanese on my mother’s side. My grandma was half but largely lost their cultural identity. I’m the only one who was interested in it and picked up - which made that side upset.)

    I have some really cool feminist friends but I’ve also known really bad feminists. There was one from Canada who left Japan after a year (she said she would stay for 5 years) because Japan was sexist. But she would always make fun of my wife (who is Japanese) and say I only married her cause “she’s a subservient asian woman who conforms to her gender role like all asian women”. I called her racist for that and she got all defeating and called me “sexist, racist, mansplainer, transphobe, wife beater, etc). Like, We would house a Friday movie night at our apartment we invited all the English teachers including her. She would get offended because “I didn’t let my wife choose the movie and my wife was too week to let her voice be heard in choosing the movie.” The movie was actually chosen by the one of the other female English teachers.

    In actuality, my wife can be very scary and wears the pants in the house more often than not. She’s as far as “subservient and placid“ as one could be.
    I got a notice issued my by city where to go in case of earthquakes, flooding, landslides, typhoons, etc. partially because of the “Summer of Disaster” Japan experienced in 2018. That was the double whammy of earthquakes, typhoons, landslides, flooding, and hate waves that killed many people. However, this updated notice shows how to properly observe social distancing while in an emergency shelter. Like where to place your cot, personal hygiene (especially if running water is cut off), and how to keep your mouth covered if you don’t have proper face covering equipment.
    Willing to bet we will have a Direct/presentation announcement on Tuesday/Wednesday with it airing on Thursday.
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    RealPokeFan11 RealPokeFan11 We had the Pokémon Direct just last week. I understand why Sony delayed presenting their PS5 since that’s a big deal. While NoA has acknowledge and supported the movement, I haven’t seen much of that over here. It’s seriously like “ehh america is in flames again” type mentality and Japan doesn’t really care. Which shouldn’t be surprised as Japan doesn’t have these sort of problems and are perceived by both the government and the public as “foreign issues”.

    They are more preoccupied with opening schools back up, preventing spreading, and the Olympics next year. So, while theoretically they might delay any announcements, I doubt they will or, at most, acknowledge what’s going on. The Japanese consumer base still remains one of its largest in Japan and has beaten out PS and Sony in recent years. Ask anyone about games in Japan and they will say something about Nintendo or mobile games. Smash is HUGE in Japan. Like, HUGE. So I doubt the Japanese shareholders and corporate would want to delay new content because a sizable margin of players are affected by what’s going on outside of Japan. I asked my junior high kids if they know what’s going on in the States and they still think the country is dealing with only COVID19, they have no clue about the protests and, frankly, they didn’t seem interested. Even the other teacher was like “Oh well that’s sad. Let’s talk about how to use the passive voice everyone! Also, no singing, chanting, group work! Just paperwork!”

    Good point. I forgot about the Pokémon direct for some reason.
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    Venus of the Desert Bloom
    Here’s something to remember. Nintendo delayed a Direct because of a devastating earthquake in the Hokkaido region of Japan. Capcom canceled Marvel vs Capcom 3 dlc because of the 2011 mega-earthquake. If Nintendo was revealing a console like Sony, then I think they would maybe delay it but I don’t think they would when showing off new content in their games. Especially Smash where development timelines and schedules are extremely important.
    Just found out my last grandparent finally passed away. She was 99 and lived a long life. Her daughter passed away just over a year ago due to cancer. Last time I saw either of them was back on 2015.
    Posted this back on May 30th

    Here’s a little hint spoiler at what I will be working on for our News section:

    “>June’s character analysis will be epic.
    >Taking another look at a largely overlooked item and why it’s important
    >ARMS
    >Ganondork
    >Do you like stages?”

    Well, here ya go:

    June’s character analysis will be epic.
    https://smashboards.com/threads/%E2%80%9Cjonesy-drops-in%E2%80%9D-jonesy-and-fortnite-smash-analysis-part-1.505115/

    ARMS
    https://smashboards.com/threads/arms-music-we-could-see-in-smash.505193/

    I wonder what other news articles will be coming out...
    Last year, I applied for a teaching position where I would be a fully-fledged teacher in Japan, in charge of classes, and indefinite employment as well as salary increase double what I make now. The catch was the requirements where “Japanese people only”. I still applied knowing full well that I couldn’t get through as I’m not Japanese (and being a quarter doesn’t help apparently). Yet, I actually made it through the three rounds of individual interviews (all a week between each other) before they told me that “We appreciate your enthusiasm and ingenuity but, unfortunately, we are looking for only Japanese teachers.” I felt sunk as not only did I fail my interviews, I also wasted like $400 in fees and travel expenses as well as three weeks of my summer vacation.

    While I failed, I had an amazing experience, networked with people I still keep in contact with, and felt a little about how it’s like to be denied something due to a difference in nationality, race, gender, sex, social class, and other related issues.

    Don’t let these limit you and, while they may define who you are, what ultimately matters is you as a person. I was ashamed to have not made the cut but I decided to use that experience to strengthen myself and improve who I am. In light of everything going on right now, I hope people can take a step back and look inward; on both sides of the fence.
    While I think it’s fairly unlikely given that, unlike Sony, Nintendo is still largely Japanese-based and Japan isn’t as affected by the protests but I definitely think the proper thing to do to is postpone all releases or reveals, including Smash, for the time being.
    Tokyo is seeing protests as well but caused by a different incident opposed to America but partially spurred on by the Floyd protests. This incident is about the brutal arrest of a Kurdish man who is a restaurant owner and has lived in Japan for 15 years. He too said “I can’t breath” while being choked and the police prevented his friend from filming the incident. Over 30 officers responded to the scene because, as a cop friend told me, arresting a foreigner is a huge promotion for the officer (especially if drugs are found).

    https://www.google.co.jp/amp/s/www.tokyoreporter.com/japan/hundreds-protest-alleged-tokyo-police-violence-against-kurdish-man/amp/

    I’ve had numerous encounters with the cops and each one makes me extremely worried I could risk getting deported and never able to see my wife and kids again. There are very little protections for foreigners living in Japan and, while I do love this country, I know there are very few willing to help fight for my rights. Thankfully, most encounters didn’t escalate cause I made sure I followed the rules and instructions to a T (and I generally am a law abiding citizen). Most of my run-ins are traffic related save for three incidents where I was simply going along that the police said “what are you doing in Japan. Show us your passport. Oh you have an alien registration card? Never mind then. Sorry to bother you, sir”
    I got a message on FB Messanger from someone on my friend’s list who I haven’t seen in over a decade. She sent me a message basically saying that she is unfriending me because I don’t support the Black Lives Matter protests.....


    I haven’t posted on my Facebook in 3 years, everything is on the strictest privacy settings and I have removed all my pictures, and don’t even have the app anymore but...ok...not posting articles and making support posts every minute doesn’t mean I don’t support the movement.
    I officially regret starting the immigration for my family to the States. At least we have about a year for it to officially be approved so hopefully they sort their **** out before then. With everything from the virus to riots and looting to whatever 2020 has i store, America is breaking apart at the seams. I feel FAR safer in Japan even with earthquakes (just had a 4 on the Shindo scale this morning. Broke a few plates), killer hornets, and typhoons. If things get progressively worse between now and winter time; I will most likely cancel and stop all immigration proceedings for the family.

    Though it would have to be veeeery bad as throwing away around $2,000 just for immigration fees, documents, and everything else isn’t exactly an easy thing to just go and do. Plus all the requirements to allow my wife to immigrate (health checks and immunizations, police reports, etc). Not to mention I had six members of my friend and family circles to right affidavits to attest to our marriage/my family declaring themselves financially responsible for my wife until we can get our feet on the ground. Not to mention I do have a job lined up for when I do return.

    I think the riots and virus are going to be the least of your worries compared to the coming economic collapse. If we get lucky and the virus becomes less of a problem in the coming months then we should be able to recover with some damage. But if it's looking like we might be in for the long haul then you are likely going to see a collapse worse than the Great Depression. All the civil unrest and the like are just symptoms of this problem. And that's going to last longer than a year.
    I love Ark and how challenging it is and how stupid behavior gets you hurt but...damn. I’m livid right now.

    It took a while but the monster behind the KyoAni fire massacre was finally arrested after undergoing skin-grafting so he can stand trial. I hope the legal system prevails and that either life imprisonment or the death sentence is carried out. No one should ever have to suffer like the poor people who were burned alive or choked to death on smoke did at KyoAni.
    In America, growing up, I was everyone’s “token Asian/Japanese friend” despite only being quarter Japanese and growing up in a primarily “white-bread” All-American type family. And in Japan, I’m everyone’s “token foreign/white friend” despite not being back in the states since 2015 and largely adopted a more-Japanese lifestyle.

    Blocked Content: And this leak comes from Venus of the Desert Bloom over on Smashboards. And I quote he says:

    "June Presentation

    Hopefully this all comes true as I would love to see a Sword & Shield Pokemon in Smash as well as Rayman in the potential new Arms game. So that will be all of your content for today my block buddies and I'll see y'all in the next video.

    If Blocked Content covers this leak, I will change my avatar to what they want and ... maybe do something else.

    Thankfully, we haven’t had any in my area but Japan is legit shaking right now. There’s been over 40 mid range earthquakes in less than 24 hours. That’s compared to May 18th which had 3 and May 17th which had only 2.

    Everyone is saying the big “every 100 year” one that will devastate the Kanto and Chubu regions is fast approaching. Tokyo, Yokohama, and Nagoya areas are at risk if this was to happen.

    I pray that you, your family, friends, neighbors, and people in all of those surrounding areas will be safe.

    hoping you'll be ok. Living in an earthquake prone zone has to be nerve wracking All the quakes we had in my state were man made due to fracking, once the governor put a stop to it, the quakes stopped(only good thing she ever did in her term...)
    As far as the other natural disasters such as tornadoes, they're at least somewhat predictable.
