  1. Chrono Trigger, for sure. Main character: Pro: save the world, marry a legit princess, control elements with magic, Time travel with a kick-ass team to awesome places(zeal, Prehistoric times, destroyed future, medieval times, etc). Health is easily restored with rest, magic, or liquids. New Game + (but it might get boring at some point) Con: you have Sacrifice yourself and die by being literally obliterated and having to be revived. Hungry often in the future, lots of Pain from cuts and damage taken. NPC: Pro: as long as I was in 1000 AD, that would be fine with me. they have a decent civilization. They have internal plumbing,stoves and clocks. life seems simple. since I'm not immortal, I wouldn't experience 1999 AD. Con: justice system seems easily corrupt. have to live under a king. monsters with loose morals (like ozzie) would be dangerous. I would probably live a simple life and die without much effect on the world.
  2. I think people don't know what they want... they want something different, otherwise they complain at everything being "the same" like CoD and Madden franchises. but when something different happens everyone loses their shit and become experts on why this new thing not good enough or too different to be good. to me, it's seems like a loud group of people are reacting as if Robin Williams was casts as Batman AND Superman. He looks like Batman/Bruce Wayne, he has a strong chin for the cowl. So ALL I care about his his god-damn "batman voice" that's the deal breaker, if they can make Elijah Wood into a small person, or make Tom Cruise 3-5 inches taller in every movie he's in, then they can make Affleck into Batman. Just make him into the genius detective/engineer/scientist that he's suppose to be. In many ways, I feel Nolan's batman dumbed down and weakened the Batman character among other characters. and as for the petitions. I feel these things are getting ridiculous. It's the age of entitlement at it's worse, we see audiences demanding things on YouTube channels, Videogame consoles, and now Feature films... ridiculous.
  3. Yeah, same here, there is definitely a change but different people are going to have different chemistry. I'm enjoying SMB2 although this new season of Game Grumps might have a few less GG (f)animated clips. way more swearing with Dan. I don't mind at all seeing that's how I think/talk but some might. It's good to see them play the game well, I was really frustrated watching when they didn't even take time to read instructions for Mario Golf. That's a fun game if you know how to play or how to read the meters. But overall, I'm mostly surprised that it was Jon who left the show and not Arin. I don't know what Jon does but I know Arin is an animator so I would think he would leave to work on his craft. perhaps this is a segway to having steam train take over? so Jon bows out, Dan replacing him. Steam Train introduced then after a few months/games Arin bows out, leaving steam train as the channels attraction. That way it's not 100% all at once switch. just a late night/early morning thought.
  4. GameGrumps is the only "let's play" I watch. I found out about Game Grumps after following Arin's animation as Egoraptor on newgrounds. I watched all of JonTron's videos after finding out about him from discovering Game Grumps. I found them great and thought they were well done, I would like more. Game Grumps is not a company, the fans aren't paying for it. I just can't believe how much demanding there is of people that have been giving away free entertainment for years by the people who have been entertained. It boggles my mind that "fans" feel so entitled that they try to boss the artists around. The same thing happened with a newgrounds artist Alvin Earthworm with his Super Mario Bros Z series. He created 8 awesome episodes and his life got in the way of making it, he lost energy that he once had for the series. He officially stopped making it with an apology letter to his fans and how did they react? with anger, threats, and insults. Ridiculous! Alvin Earthworm owed them nothing, and Arin and Jon owe their fans nothing. It was an awesome year, and if Steam Train isn't good, the numbers will show it, same goes for Game Grumps. I hope anyone who is an artist giving free talent finds something more satisfying goes for it, and their fan's would wish them the best. I guess free entertainment just doesn't cut it, especially when you're good.
  5. Since this topic is hilarious I decided to do some quick google pricing. forgive me if i'm off but all of these are based on prices I saw. Here's what to do with 600 dollars. xbox one, a controller, and a game. high quality Bowling Ball and Bowling shoes ($150) and 90 games @ $5/game Compound bow ($500) plus 2 dozen arrows Playstation 4, controller, 3 games. Boxing Gloves ($80) 8 hours of training at $60/hour. Kayak ($500) plus 3 Paddles ($30 ea) 8 person Tent ($600) 75 months of stream only Netflix iPad with Retina display 32GB ($599) Assembled Printrbot jr 3D printer ($499) plus 6 lbs of filament ($99) Wii U, controller, 4 games. Microsoft Surface RT 32GB ($499) plus cover ($90) or a shitty used car Visit the playstation 4, Xbox one, Wii U threads to see the positives and do some reasoning or do your own research because to say "convince me" is basically saying "do the research for me and be sure to cite your sources!" Unless they work for the sony, microsoft, or nintendo it's all going to be speculation. This seems to be nothing more than a way to start arguments with people.
  6. why would Namco have a rep in Smash Brothers? Pac-man didn't start on the NES or SNES like Megaman did... oh it's being partially developed by them... well still. maybe that I highly doubt Puck-Man will be there seeing how the creator is downplaying 3rd party characters and talking about how the 3ds will have the same roster. Maybe we we have a lowered character count? If there has to be a Namco character, I'd like Dig Dug or Mr. Driller. The actual battle footage looks a bit faster paced than brawl and seeing how tripping is out, I am hoping for Melee speed with tweaks to keep the more annoying (l33t?) moves like wave dashing and such out of gameplay.
  7. trying to justify why characters in smash is sort of rediculous. maybe you were talking about 3rd party characters only but if Game and Watch, Rob, Ice Climbers were put in after years of nothing, then anything goes. One thing I would love to see off my wishlist would be: contextual aesthetic battle damage. as your percentage increases so does the character's bruises, black eyes, torn shirts. so that way there's a visible difference between a fighter with 278% and one with 10%. there might have been alusion to this with mega's trailer but I do think so. I feel it's not going to happen tho, too protective of their property.
  8. yeah the extended gameplay trailer sold me as well. I'm looking to WFtrainer to be one of my faves. Ganondorf and Ness were my melee picks. I never owned brawl or a wii for that matter but this SSB has reignited my Nintendo fandom. who do you want to see or gone in the next game? I would love to see B.o.B from the SNES Game of the same name but that's wishful thinking... maybe Paper Mario?? I don't know.
  9. I'm in the same boat, was an xbox and xbox live guy from the first xbox but now... I'm rethinking my next purchase. although Wii U might pull ahead for me. PlayStation exclusives have never really interested me and I love Nintendo's main 3 but I guess what it really boils down to what my friends play because I'm a social gamer. unless fallout 4 get announced. That's a trump card for any system.
  10. I agree... there are going to be some positives to the always online and installed game. as for the higher price point... It's now the Xbros time to have that elitist and condescending attitude to other gamers. it's the "oh! well, if you can't pay 500 bucks for your hobby, then go do something else" mentality. seriously, it's like a console had a three way with a PC and your cable box, the problem is you can't have every way. why keep physical disks if every game needs to be installed and verified?
  11. I hoping to hear a price drop announced. they seem to be "relocating" their 8gb Wii U... maybe. I think the two things that would win me over for my next purchase would be a price drop and a firmware update to allow multiple touch screens on one Wii U. they don't have that yet, do they?
  12. hmmm.... I used to be a die hard Nintendo fan. all the way up to the GCN. I loved Wind Waker and Twilight Princess, Smash Bros, Mario stuff (Sunshine, Kart, etc),... hmm... ran out of stuff. I couldn't get into metroid or much else. So I went to xbox because of online multiplayer and cool games at that point i was just starting high school and all my friends had one. LAN parties were great. now after owning a 360 and ignoring the Wii completely, I'm looking back at the WiiU due to xbox one and PS4 reveals. the Wii U might be might next purchase only if these first party exclusives are amazing looking. Wii U owners, are you content with your purchases and what is your gameplay schedule like?
  13. My last name is Fure (pronounced like Fury) so, as soon as I truly got online, I went with FuriousFure and tried to stake claim as FuriousFure in as many parts of the internet I could. E-mail, Xbox, photo sharing sites, anything. the reaction turned out to be that people think I don't know how to spell Fury or Fire correctly or just pronounce it as if it rhymed with "sure" I plan to change it legally into Fury when I get married next year.
  14. Alright, again this isn't really the artistic "movie poster" videogame art that's the trend but I think this artist, Orioto, effectively captures the beauty of the games themselves. btw it was very hard to track his artwork down to him. people don't like crediting original artist it seems... :/ http://orioto.deviantart.com/ http://orioto.deviantart.com/gallery/6943610 seriously, even if you merely want cool desktop pics or to be nostalgic. check him out. I would love to and plan to make some of these into framed prints.
  15. Zac Gorman http://magicalgametime.com He sells some of his stuff on fangamer but his stuff is high quality and worthy of being framed.
  16. Yeah! I have been a fan of all your work. seriously all good stuff to listen to when working. The Banjo-Kazooie album sounds awesome too, keep up the great work!
  17. these guys in Chrono Trigger always made me smile for some reason. guess I was easily amused by them popping out behind their shields.
  18. let's say someone is going around selling bags of air, just plastic bags full of air. and people start buying the bags from the guy. you can judge the seller for "selling" them and you can disagree with buying them. but the whole transaction is okay because nobody is forcing anything on anyone. I just feel bad for the investors because from the little I know, it seems that they fans are just paying the guys to do a podcast. they stopped for a reason (whether the it was the show or not), now they are going to be doing something that is no longer driven because they "wanted to" but now because other people want to. I think creativity and quality can suffer if the heart isn't into it. but just like the rest of Kickstarter, I say let the market work itself out. I think it's not any more or less exploitative then a guy selling an idea for a new pen or wallet design.
  19. it was a while ago but whenever I played battlefield 2 multi-player on the 360 I'd always have to listen to Simon and Garfunkel albums. there's just something about having "bridge over trouble waters" or "bright eyes" playing over helicopters, tanks, and gun fire.
  20. I'm invested in the 10 year hoodie Kickstarter. As long as i get my hoodie i will be happy. there is always the possibility that the company with belly up within the 10 years of mending but I'm okay with that possibility. 19 hours to go. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jakehimself/the-10-year-hoodie-built-for-life-backed-for-a-dec/posts/457837?ref=activity
  21. When I was 12 I got a golden Legend of Zelda cartridge for NES. With the memory battery being broken, I tried beating it one sitting. I think I got to the 7th dungeon but never finished it. The accomplishments I did complete were finding all 50 golden scarabs and building the paddle sword to it's final level in Ninja Gaiden Black. so naturally, When I found my games saves had been corrupted, I never desired to play the game again. and I haven't played any of the subsequent sequels for that matter too (perhaps at my loss).
  22. My Fiance and I went as generic Pokemon Trainers to our Halloween celebration. I'm the dude and she's the chick. we are 25 and 23, respectively. It was a pretty awesome home-made costume.
  23. My favorite nod to video games specifically arcade games was the Kill Screen at the end of the credits. the graffiti and puns (pac-manorail) were was hilarious as well. Wreck-it Ralph was awesome. almost everything a computer animation and video game enthusiastic would want out of a combination of the two mediums. a well thought out story with puns and jokes galore, while having 3 distinctive styled worlds with having personal coloring and animation techniques in each. and that the characters were so well diverse, not only in character but is proportions as well. on the video game side: they had all the cameos and characters stay true to their universes, at least I didn't see any glaring flaws. and there might be some commentary on modern games but the like that the video games worlds have rules and are pretty legit seeming. I'd recommend it if you like Animation.
  24. yeah, that was my reaction too. I guess Bane was born in a different prison where he and his teddy bear protector (the one who hid the knife) gained power and control. Maybe there just happens to be an auxiliary spa next-door to the holding cells and the public rock climbing wall in this prison?
  25. ... No. If you look at what I have written, you would see that I said that if it was necessary to put in conscious effort to try to understand a character in a movie, (which it was for me, at times, for that specific character, most likely due to the combination of the obstruction of his mouth and the distorted sound of his voice) it could potentially take away from the movie. So while it does not take extra effort to play attention to what characters are saying in movies but if it is, for whatever reason, hard to understand a character, it might affect the enjoyment of a movie a small amount. Let me try to explain it in a way that you might understand. let's say there was a key plot device that was shown on a paper in the movie multiple times but the font was not easily readable. an extra effort must be made to be able to understand the plot device. I believe this required extra effort would be enough to lower the immersion of an audience member. This concept is not so hard to understand and hopefully, I won't be misunderstood or be "Trolled" anymore, whatever the case may be. As for the movie, The ending was a bit too ambiguous for me, and it was sad that after such a great villain of the TDK, that the plot went the way it did. I felt that the main threat of the movie when it was revealed has been overdone in last few years. Perhaps I am a bit naive but that's just too great of a leap of faith to make in such a serious, down to earth movie. (as far as Superhero movies are concerned) Overall, I think that the movie was very entertaining. Great acting all around, even though it was a bit of a Inception Reunion. I will most likely purchase it for home viewings when the trilogy pack comes out on Blu-ray.
