@  kirant : (03 March 2020 - 05:41 AM) New challenger approaching!
@  xcrash1998 : (26 February 2020 - 09:55 AM) Not anymore
@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)

Yeah. Not even joking unfortunately. This is one of the last things we needed, but I'm almost looking forward to it though. Here's to hoping it's as good as the games.

I didn't get to listen to the trailer with sound, but it looked good for sure. I don't think it will end up terrible considering the material, but disappointment is pretty much expected when it comes to adaptations so I won't be too optimistic. Then again the Sonic Boom cartoon looked to be another sub par CGI kids show and it turned out to be pretty good so I hope this ends up like that.

Oh no I'm not expecting it to be bad, but I really don't think it needed to be a thing. Never even looked at the trailer actually, gonna have to check it out

yeah, this being a thing is also kinda odd to me. Sony seems to acknowledge the IP but like... when the average person thinks of Sony, I don't think they think that. They think PlayStation maybe, or Sony TVs, but as far as a mascot, it kinda feels like Sony tries to push characters but they aren't true mascots. like, you can't simply... force that stuff. R&C and Kratos might be popular for instance but they're not as synonymous as Nintendo is with Mario, Link, and Pikachu, for instance. So... yeah, I dunno.

 

To me it'd be like making a movie about Fire Emblem or something. Sure, some people will get it, and FE actually gets quite a bit of attention now compared to before, but... if you're not really into Nintendo, you probably won't get it. Whereas most people who know Nintendo probably also know Mario. >_>'

FE movie will never happen. The anime bombed(mostly because of how awful it was, but w/e)

Back on topic you make a good point with Sony making mascot decisions. I think it's because they don't have something definitive like Mario or link. When I think Sony the first thing that comes to mind is the ps2. In other words a console and not a game.

I'm not saying it would! but to be fair, that was ages ago, and I don't think it'd have any real effect on what's made now. I mean, it'd be silly to say "don't make a Fire Emblem anime/animated movie/whatever" based solely on "that super old OVA from like 20 years ago back when the series was WAY different and wasn't even a thing in the West went poorly, we shouldn't" =P

 

right, that's pretty much the point I was trying to make. And Sony can TRY to push a mascot as much as they want to because in a way it's kind of important/good to have one, but ultimately you can't force that kind of reputation/recognition upon a character, it has to come over time via good, popular, memorable games (or whatever kind of material it is), IMO

Oh that's not the only reason an FE anime is a bad reason(see my thoughts on the recent pandering to the "awakening only" fanbase) but that's neither here nor there.

Personally I would rather see a jak and dexter movie over ratchet and clank. Not sure why but ratchet and clank just doesn't scream movie potential to me.

Edit: thinking back Nintendo should stay away from movies and TV shows in general. Very few of their attempts have gone even remotely well.

bad reason? you mean, bad idea?

 

I'm not going to debate it being a good/bad idea, I'm just saying, I wouldn't really give an ancient thing any weight =P

 

as far as Nintendo stuff goes, yeah, I think it's pretty tough and so far they haven't really been successful. That being said, I don't think it'd be impossible to do, but... they would need to execute on a level unlike before. I don't think they themselves have the expertise, and handing it off to someone else might end up being just... bad, kinda like how Pixels or w/e didn't turn out great. Soooo. >_>' They'd need to make an epic collaboration to make something great, and chances are the stars just won't align, so while it'd be cool if they DID... you probably have the right idea in saying it might be better not to try, lol.

 

then again, not trying because of a fear of failure is eh, so hopefully one day when they feel like they have a good shot, they do it. XP
