Having not read the entirety of Stardust Crusaders, if at some point Joseph doesn’t run the hell away I will be filled with a profound sadness.
On the one hand, /hell yes/ more Magic World support and the introduction of NES-era RPG world. And the game is finally getting official playmats!
On the other hand, I am so sick of Dragon World, which has been included in every single set so far, and now there’s going to be a Drum Bunker Dragon for every world (except Danger). Were Royal Paladins so ubiquitous to CFV when that game started? Because this is ridiculous.
AND FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN CINEMA HISTORY AN AMERICAN MADE MOVIE SWAPS FANATICAL PATRIOTISM FOR BASIC HUMAN DECENCY EVEN THOUGH THE MOVIE ITSELF IS CALLED CAPTAIN AMERICA AND IT DOESN’T GET ANY MORE PATRIOTIC THAN THAT BUT MARVEL CHOSE A DIFFERENT PATH AND I’M THANKFUL FOR THAT pardon my capslock
and in a fantastic plot twist, the answer was not to nuke the enemy
No but seriously, for as much as people expect Captain America to be a piece of jingoist propaganda, he’s actually most recently been consistently written as the exact opposite. He’s not a defender of America, he’s a defender of the American dream.
I love throwing hundreds of dollars at board game kickstarters because I have discovered in recent years that board games are /fucking rad/.
Like seriously, once you get past the shitty popular games like Monopoly and Candyland, you reach a thick stew of bomb-ass games like Ascension, Yomi, Sentinels of the Multiverse, Elder Sign, Attack the Darkness, Star Wars X-Wing/Star Trek Attack Wing, Cards Against Humanity, and so many more. And there are even fun games for the family like Ticket to Ride and Apples to Apples! And there are even ways to make the bad games good; just look at Risk Legacy or The Doom That Came To Atlantic City (Reverse Monopoly)
For people who consider themselves gamers, board games are an incredible way of replicating the feeling of local multiplayer in video games, which is going away in favor of online. Online is great, for sure! But it in no way replaces the feeling of hanging out with your best buds and fighting against each other/working together towards a common goal/fighting against each other to work together towards a common goal.
JoJo doesn’t break out the comedy all too often, but when it does, boy howdy does it fucking deliver.
Customer: I want a nice chocolate cake for my young son, and he likes trucks, so could you maybe do a little frosting picture of a truck on the top?
Cake Boss: SOS WHAT WES GUNNA DO IS MAKE A GIANT TRUCK ENTIRELY OUTTA RICE CRISPIES AND COVA DAT IN FONDANT AND IZ GUNNA SHOOT SPARKS AND CATCH FIYAH, POSSIBLY KILLIN YOUR SON IN DA PROCESS.
Of course, as part of the gift-slash-curse of the Cake Scarab, he would be able to communicate with the son in the event of death.
I can understand that people are upset about RAWKET HEELS in the new Smash Bros., and maybe about ZSS in general, but the people who are just now saying “THEY’VE TURNED SAMUS INTO A SEX OBJECT” are apparently terrible at Metroid games because the reward for finishing the game as fast as possible with a high concentration of items collected has always been Samus in her underwear. She has never not been a busty blonde sex object, the only difference nowadays is that A.) there’s better graphics and B.) they’re front-loading that shit.
And understand that I’m not saying “it’s ok because she’s always been objectified”. Be mad that Samus is objectified if you want! Just don’t act like its a new thing, because it has literally always been there.
And at the end of the day, she’s still Samus Aran, intergalactic bounty hunter who has kicked more ass in a single mission than most people will in a lifetime. RAWKET HEELS in a skintight body suit does not make her some pathetic waif, just like appearing in her underwear at the end of older games as a reward does not make her a pathetic waif.
(let’s all just remember to disregard Other M because Other M did make her a pathetic waif and it should be scorned for that reason alone)
