Commented on Oculass and Vivian

Occulass is Tom Preston’s counter argument to the creation of Vivian James, but misses the point completely.

This pretty much sums it up.
But I’d also add, Smash Bros. is what I like to call a “Brawler” fighting game, Wikipedia lists the genres as Action, Fighting, Platformer which is accurate. But I think Brawler gets the idea across, and there are other games like it though few and far between. Playstation All-Stars is the most known.

Another is DreamMix TV World Fighters, which is Hudson and Konami Vs Takara Toys (So Simon Belmont and Snake vs. Optimus Prime and Beyblades). And it’s basically the same kind of game as Smash.

I feel like I know what the responses are going to be but, why the tail coming out of her butt? The tails extend from the spine on the lower back.

True but even the alternate branches are simply dark versions of the other forms, Kuzuhamon Sakuyamon’s equivalent is still female.

The statement is just kinda odd to me since most digimon who attain some of humanoid form (especially in the Ultimate and Mega stages) clearly take on gender specific physical traits (large muscular builds, usually a bare “body builder like chest” for males, and slender delicate looking bodies, and breasts for female)

While that is true it’s still a hard thing to justify when Renamen herself evolves into Sakuyamon http://digimon.wikia.com/wiki/Sakuyamon
Which in both normal mode and Miko form is clearly female, though apparently the german’s agree since their dub had everything up to Sakuyamon be dubbed male. Though it would have been interesting to see gender based evolutions for Digimon.

Commented on Tumblr's double standards

What’s worse is that only “Soak-a” and Katara are white, while grandma and the rest of the tribe are actual Inuits or at least asian.

Commented on Tumblr's double standards

Well you do have to keep in mind the alien aspect was a secondary trait. It was a change made MUCH later in canon. Goku is most definitely an asian designed character, since his whole character revolves around being the Monkey King from Journey to the East an asian novel. Of coarse the biggest sin of the Dragonball movie is just being garbage.

Wii Fit trainer, Z-suit Samus, and Palutena stand at the same height. However Samus is wearing heels giving her extra height, so removed she stands slightly shorter (to Little Mac’s amusement. But Samus also has a power suit which is badass.

Wow Kotaku just wow.

Wolves being a major animal motif in previous games probably had nothing to do with the idea. Plus it’ll will help keep the player to sympathize with Big Boss as he (what I’m assuming since this leads into Metal Gear) performs atrocities against people in the name of creating his Outer Haven. But at least he’s still kind to his pet wolf.

Well that’s a bit sad. Makes the other gif of the pup running up to him more clear though. I just thought Ocelot smuggled a wolf pup on the ship for some reason and it got loose around BB.

I’m curious to why (what I’m assuming) Big Boss’s wolf(? half wolf?) lost it’s eye outside of symbolism for being Big Boss’s pet.

Commented on Digivolution

Well that’s if you’re going by the english dub. It’s evolution in Japan, but in the states they didn’t want people to confuse Pokemon and Digimon.

Hate to break it to ya but.

That’s the original Link art from Zelda 1. Also Link up till OoT wore a brown long sleeved shirt under the tunic, but was accompanied by blonde hair.

Lastly Nintendo has completely disowned the Phillips CD-i and it’s games.

Commented on R.I.P. Mewtwo

Those could have simply been testing place holders. To see how new characters hold up to old characters. Mewtwo was fully completed for Brawl but then pulled at some point. But his data was still there and people used it in Project M.

Another big example of this kind of thing is the fully rendered Kraid in Metroid Prime. Fully rendered with an arena, but left out due to time constraints.

They explained in the episode that Ponyta’s (and by extension Rapidash) flames only hurt people they don’t trust.

Commented on The New Batmobile from Batman v. Superman Revealed!

That I can agree with. It feels like they looked at DKR saw the Bat-Tank and said that’s perfect. Forgetting that the Bat-Tank was built for entering what was basically a war-zone full of “mutants” on the outer edge of Gotham.

Supes bouncing bullets until the one kryptonite bullet comes flying out.

Commented on The New Batmobile from Batman v. Superman Revealed!

That’s true I forgot about DKR. And I won’t laugh because that’s exactly Batman’s MO, he not trying to kill people just scare them shitless so they stop being criminals (the normal mentality ones).

So if I’m a crook who sees this rolling up, and then the next thing that happens is a wake up in a holding cell cause a tranq hit. I’d be pretty scared to go back to crime again.
