  1. With Odyssey coming out soon, what do you think is the current pinnacle of the Mario series? (Unless you think one of the sidescrollers holds a candle)

    64- The one that rebooted it all, and a good reason to own the Nintendo 64 at the time

    Sunshine- Gimmicky and frustrating, but still charming and exciting

    Galaxy- Mario in space + Feels

    Galaxy 2- Mario in space + Yoshi

    3D Land- It exists (only one I haven't played)

    3D World- One of those rare gems on the Wii U, despite its lack of intense moments


  2. Like pretty much any manual will tell you, I'm sure it's best to only play games in small chunks (30 minutes per session tops). Given technology's current state, it gets more difficult for most of us to adapt to new advancements, which is why I think playing retro games is healthier than playing modern ones, as they're much simpler to understand from a mental mindset.


  3. Twilight secretly worships Big Mac's work ethic.

    Pinkie Pie is a crazy pegasister IRL who somehow got sucked into the show.

    Starlight had daddy issues.

    Fluttershy loves fine cuisine. (due to all the slop she feeds her animals)

    Discord is related to Darkheart from the second Care Bears movie.

    Celestia's wavy mane is actually her cake senses.

    Derpy has a part-time job as a plumber.

  4. I feel as though the writers would want it to be G. They grew up with and take heavy inspiration from the Classic Disney movies, which were released back when the Hay's Code was a thing so they often got off with violence and occasional language (jackass in Pinocchio and hell in Sleeping Beauty) scot-free. However, since you aren't a kid if you haven't seen such movies, it'd make sense to them that it'd get the most kid-friendly rating possible.

    However, the Hasbro execs would probably want more than a generous slice of that moolah, and the chart says PG movies gross more because of various factors, so they'll probably sneak in a drip of blood or an innuendo to double their profit.

    You never know, it could get NC-17 for excessive nudity.

  5. Snips and Snails aren't the most flattering way to show what the crew thinks of young boys, but they're minor characters at most.

    Diamond Tiara was usually the instigator for some of the show's worst episodes, but there was a cuteness to her at least.

    Starlight Glimmer is odd because half her episodes are trash while the other half are fantastic, there's no middle ground with her.

    Angel Bunny, while an abrasive brat at times, is just a lil' rabbit who doesn't know much better.

    The worst thing you can do is introduce a character and just expect the audience to like him or her for no reason. If this were a while ago I would've said Big Macintosh due to his lack of personality, but then Hard to Say Anything came along and, y'know, gave him a personality. : )

  6. It depends on what they truly want to do with the characters, which has been in limbo for everyone except Starlight and her personal bubble since Season 6. I'm sure when Starlight's arc is (finally) done, they'll either move on to reforming another pony and shaping him/her up to be the next big hero, or go back to the simpler plots so as not to alienate any potential newcoming fans from the movie theatres.

  7. The only episode I'm interested in is Secrets and Pies. Other than that, the synopsises make it already seem more by-the-numbers compared to the first half. I'm not saying it could turn out to be a mediocre season overall, because the episodes in the first half that I watched were pretty good.


  8. I'm sure advice threads are allowed here.

    Now, on how to gain weight, I'm not a professional in biology (heck, I'm only 15), but I suggest this. Think of your favourite food in the world, and try your hardest to eat it regularly. If it's a particularly fatty food like mince or bacon, even better. That's my advice, just eat the foods you want to eat and can't get enough of.


  9. With 2017 looking to be a big year for Sonic, with both Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces recieving surprisingly warm reception compared to most other games over the past 15 years, what's your favourite adventure so far?

    Personally, I've only played the mainstream platformers up to Heroes, but I've heard positive things about Colors and Generations.

    In my opinion, Sonic 3 & Knuckles is my favourite, followed closely by Sonic Adventure DX (it just feels more colourful than the Dreamcast version), then Sonic CD. The first two games have their problems (namely 1 not being very memorable and 2 getting too hard for its own good near the end), Adventure 2 doesn't look nearly as nice or seem nearly as intriguing as its predecessor, and Heroes is a mixed bag, but I can safely say all of them except Heroes are good games in their own right.

    Sonic 3 & Knuckles perfects the speedy formula of the first two and ties it together with fun bonus games, the series' first taste at an epic story and incredible music. Sonic Adventure DX is super fun as a foray into the third dimension after years of anticipation, and you can see the foundations of what would make Modern Sonic both work and not work in a surprisingly solid package. Sonic CD expands on the level design of the 2D games and offers several vibrant, layered locations. The American soundtrack is alright, but the Japanese one is just bitching (easily the best music of the whole series).

     

    What about you? What are your favourite Sonic games and why?


  10. Compared to the 5-6 year cycle of previous generations, Gen 7 and 8 have been significantly longer (it's been 12 years since the Xbox 360 was released, let that sink in for a minute). I guess because the race to see how many bits and hertz you can store in a console has slowed down, it becomes harder to design a new console that can easily accomodate games that are built with especially high tech in mind. It's a gap between the software producers and the hardware manufacturers that doesn't seem to be getting any slimmer as the years go by.
