We have a date for the second wave! Incidentally, June 29 is also the first day of my vacation this year, and depending on when my family wants to leave that day (which probably won't be until around noon at the earliest), I should be able to easily make it to a Best Buy or other store at opening first thing in the morning. That said, i'm still gonna try and get a pre-order, just in case.

You are the first person I've come across to say anything good about it.


Seriously? That's surprising considering all the hype I saw for it before it came out.

So i picked up that Batman Ninja movie while i was out grocery shopping today, and man that movie is stupidly awesome. It starts off feeling like they're trying to be historically accurate to feudal Japan, but that very quickly gets tossed out the window when they start tossing in all the anime cliches. It all culminates in the most over-the-top Japanese thing you can possible imagine: a giant Batman fighting against a Megazord-style robot! Hell, even the acting, while performed by a lot of talented industry veterans, sounded a lot like they were deliberately trying to parody a lot of cheesy 90s anime dubs with things like over-the-top grandiose and fast talking exposition. Overall, this movie was just awesome, and if you love that kind of insane over-the-top action anime, i'd definitely recommend it.

I've been spending a lot of time researching various crap about the franchise on wikis and the like, so most of the stuff in that video i was already aware off. However, upon reading the videos comments, i saw several people talking about a scene in Final Fantasy 14, and posting a helpful link:

 

 

I gotta admit, that is pretty funny.

Nintendo says FUCK YOU to everyone who wanted Virtual Console on Switch.

https://www.polygon....virtual-console

They're gonna have the gay-ass "select NES games with online multiplayer" bullshit, which fucking NOBODY wants, but you can kiss goodbye your hopes of digital rereleases of classic titles on Switch. Now we'll never get the glorious GCN titles for download on Switch.

 

*sigh* Once again, plant gets things wrong and comically over-reacts. They can and likely will still release older games, whether through that NES service thing or through other means. They just are retiring the Virtual Console name. We could still see SNES, N64, or even Wii and Wii U games being rereleased digitally on the switch, but they just won't be branded under the Virtual Console label anymore.
