Also based on the trailer intro, Wade 100%
escaped his universe’s destruction. The group he is with are going to be variants. Ain’t now way his wife would call him bud, combined with the disguise, the time gape, him saying it’s been a rough year, and the. The TVA show up.

They definitely all died, and maybe he meets them in the void.

that’s a possibility, but it’ll also depend on everyone else’s timeline (Wolverine’s especially). Having to figure out who is from where, and which worlds died is gonna be fun…and to also figure out who has that great Beast design we saw in The Marvels.

I mean.. I also think 64 is mid too. Haven’t played enough of Sunshine or Galaxy to judge but like… its just not that remarkable if you compare it to stuff other than other Mario games.
Why how dare you...

Super Mario 64 was a childhood game of mine that I loved. It was so great, it deserves its praise.

I have not played the other 3D Mario games, but I am sure they deserve their praise too.

I disagree.

Heavily.

One of the best, most joyful games ever made.

Let's do the Odyssey~
I mean... I guess I can't fault you for being into it. But like... I only think it's ok. Not amazing, but not terrible either.

It might have been revolutionary for it's time and magical if you played it as a kid, but it's aged like milk and you know it.

The graphics, maybe, but the game still has a special place in my heart. It is still a classic, for good reason.

That's why I've said it's aged poorly.

But also the movement is bad too. I lost count of the amount of times I tried moving straight and I moved left or right. And these joycons do NOT have drift.
I played it using the N64 controller back then. Though no offense, but maybe you just aren't that good. The movement controls are not that bad.

You can't call "skill issues" when I'm having trouble moving in a straight line in a platformer. This happens with no other game I play. The controls are garbo. You're just used to them.

I think it is still a skill issue on your part, and maybe you should try a different controller. If they were garbo, I would not have been able to play it back then much or at all.

So, are you done? I don't want this to drag-on.

You know, when I was a kid and knew only very little about Pokemon I thought Darkrai was like... the ultimate villain and biggest bad of the series. Now I know more... kind of sad he isn't a bigger deal.

He used to be a big deal.

Then Smeargle made its knees get broken.

Is that something from the movie he was in? I remember he had a movie, and that's why I thought he was important.
Nah.


Smeargle's gimmick is it can copy any move with Sketch.

Darkrai has a move that in a double battle puts both opponents asleep.

Smeargle could sketch it, and while Darkrai wasn't legal to use competitively, Smeargle was.


So when the nerf hammer came down, they made it so Smeargle couldn't copy the move, while also nerfing the hell out of the move.

Oh.... competative stuff...

I was talking about like... him being one of the definitive "villain pokemon" the way Mewtwo is.

The pivotal scene in Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai involves a Smeargle taking a crowbar and just ****ing up Darkrai's knees. It's pretty brutal.
I especially like that one-liner Smeargle gives after beating the **** out of Darkrai:

"How come Flabebe/Minior/Alcremie get alternate color forms that aren't shinies but not me? There's supposed to be Smeargle that produce blue or yellow paint too! And red without being shiny!"

I mean tbf it is. Darkrai literally kills people.


Also, Mewtwo ain't really a villain. It's more a tragic character.
Yeah. But Mewtwo is the final boss of Pokken, Giovanni has one in Masters, has two mega evoltions, and of course made it into Smash. He's the Joker to Pikachu's Batman.

Darkrai may be pretty evil, but he's not as prevalent in the franchise as I thought he was as a kid is all.

Fortnite fans are going mad again.

Tonight an emote was added where a character dances with a scythe.

The song used is Insane by BlackGryph0n.

People have called it a Hazbin Hotel emote because of this (it’s not a official collab per say).
No it does not cost 50k to buy.

Now, I wonder if the direct is appearing this week. Not to fire up curiosity and/or anxiety.
