  1. Mega Man Thread

    To be fair, the Astro Boy reboot actually looks quite nice and we'll see more of it next year. All those other shows and now this one... yeah not so much. I can't give the creators too much flak though, because the Mega Man franchise as a whole has so many different incarnations of the character, redesigning him isn't unexpected. He still looks kinda ugly, but at least you can tell he's Mega Man.
  2. Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Thread

    It's been a while since I played MGS1, so I didn't remember the controls. I just can't believe there's not a better tutorial for this game, the controls seem too complicated to just throw you in with no help. Also, O was to punch, I remember that for sure.
  3. Metal Gear Solid: The Phantom Thread

    Taking a break from Mass Effect and I remembered I still have the Legacy Collection collecting dust on my shelf. I just tried to play MGS2 but I was immediately frustrated with the controls. They're just... really weird. There's no tutorial to tell me what button does what (okay, there was a short tutorial in the opening where some but not all of the explanations flashed by after a second), pushing Start doesn't bring up any kind of menu to help (even though the manual tells me that it brings up controls, it doesn't), and having to press against a wall and fiddle around with the control stick to push Snake in the direction I want him to go, while still pressed against the wall, is awkward as hell. Am I just stupid or something? Did anyone else experience this when first playing the game? Do I have to just trudge through and get used to the controls?

    That premise sounds a lot like the Mega Man Star Force anime.
  5. The E3 2016 Harkinian Palace Discussion

    It didn't look bad for just a teaser. The only thing bad was the voice acting, but that's like tradition for Shenmue. I'm sure later on when they've developed the game further there will be a real, better looking trailer. And as Snes said, the teaser was probably made on a small budget.
  6. The E3 2016 Harkinian Palace Discussion

    I mean, a lot of people have been wanting that particular game to be made for a pretty long time sooo yeah it was big news. Nobody ever thought it was going to be made in the first place and the announcement literally came out of nowhere and took everyone by surprise.
  7. General Video Game Chat Rising: Revengeance

    It's the real deal man. I think it was sometime last year they got a new guy in charge of the Twitter and now the official Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter is memes. Pretty amusing, most of the time anyway.

    At least Sonic will take us to prom, unlike MN9.

  12. Steven Universe Thread

    Definitely not. Steven Universe's character designs allow for flexibility and small inconsistencies from time to time. Things like what Emm pointed out are a bit annoying, but not something that happens frequently throughout the series, unlike PPG 2016, where there's a major animation/editing error or two in what seems like almost every episode.
  13. General Video Game Chat Rising: Revengeance

    I don't think so.
  14. General Video Game Chat Rising: Revengeance

    He wasn't that involved in the game. All he did was tell IS to only use original Mario characters and minimize the story. Not a good decision, but again, it's also not a good reason to call him a hack or say "he should retire" compared to other things he's done.

    That's kinda how I feel about Jon as a person. Hella funny in his videos, but if I every knew him personally in real life, I get the feeling he'd be too much for me. You can pull up old Game Grumps episodes to see this kind of behavior. There were so many times he would piss off Arin for his own amusement. It was funny to me and the audience, sure, but I can't imagine putting up with that in real life.
