Last Wednesday, FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced a proposal for new rules that would allow for a “ fast lane” of Internet traffic for content providers who are willing (and able) to pay a fee. [1] The proposal reverses the FCC’s previous commitment to net neutrality and open internet and allows ISP’s like Comcast or Verizon to slow down and censor services that don’t pay the toll.

We have to be totally honest, this situation is seriously grim. But there is still hope. The FCC already knows that the Internet community wants net neutrality, but they think they can put their spin on these new rules and sneak them through. If we can prove them wrong right now with a massive public outcry, we can literally save the Internet once again.

We need to stop the FCC now. Big business groups are already ramping up lobbying efforts with the FCC in swarms since Wednesday’s announcement in support of censoring the open Internet and to ensure this dangerous proposal moves forward. [2]

This is a critical moment. In the last few weeks more than 65,000 people have taken action with us. Can you help us get to 80,000 by the end of the day today?

Man, you do realize just because YOU despise this roster, other people may actually like it? “Oh, I hate the roster so the Wii U version will bomb?” The 3ds version sold more than 1 million in its first week, so clearly the roster isn’t the issue. I think you’re forgetting the…

See, what you’re saying would make sense, if ALL the newcomers were lazy clones. It’s quite the opposite, there are 12 (15 counting the miis) completely fresh and unique newcomers. Shulk’s Monado arts changing his battle style, Rosalina’s synergy with her Luma, Robin’s tome and sword style, and many more. There are 7 clones counting Luigi and Ganon, and that’s out of over 50 characters. I’m playing the demo, and I’m having a blast, even with only 5 characters You seem to be focusing more on, “I don’t like this character” rather than, “How fun is it to play as them?” But with all the thought put into the new characters, you can’t just call them tap water. I mean, if they were exactly the same in terms of gameplay, but in one of your favorite character’s skin, would you be ok with it then? I mean, you don’t like certain characters chosen, some characters are the same and automatically Sakurai’s lazy? Smash bros is meant to be fun, that’s why people buy games, to have fun. Of course, I understand that you want to save your money, that’s perfectly fine. But is it really necessary to go insult people for buying a game? Calling 1 million people disgustingly two-faced just because they really wanted to buy it? Smash wasn’t built as a fanservice parade of characters, it was built to be a good time alone, or with others. (And sorry if I sound really pretentious, and if I made any false assumptions.)

Your apology is imuch appreciated, would have been nice to have gotten such an apology from this one Youtuber I encountered a few weeks ago. Oh man this fucker was bad with the smug high brow , what made it worse was that he was basically using pretention to try and mask his seething hatred of Nintendo, basically going on about "how Nintendo needs to stop neglecting its fanbase" (which if translated from Youtube/Tumblr to regular person speak means "Give me what we want right fucking now or go fuck yourselves") and trying to present himself like some unbiased civil when it’s clear he’s just as selfishly salty and bitter as the rest of these clowns who just curse like sailors outright.

Frankly I don’t need to be lectured on something I have a better understanding of, I’ve had to deal with it up close and personal for the past two years just about everywhere. Hell I even had to put up with this shit on Derpibooru where the main focus is fucking ponies! You remember how people were throwing such a shit fit over Bayonetta 2 being Wii U exclusive? Seriously that 1 million in the first week better amount to something like you say it does and not just be a raindrop in the lake come next year right after the Christmas season has passed and people have only logged in a few weeks or so in Smash before then probably just shoving their Wii Us right into a closet next to their dusty Wiis and go right back to bitching at Nintendo for not having any games worth playing whilst popping in the next version of Madden on their PS4s.
Have you ever played "Legend of Legaia"? It's a little unknown RPG for the Ps1. It has a great story and it's a lot of fun.

Nope. My mom got me an N64 instead of a PS1, so unless it got a re release on the PSN chances are I’ll never be able to play it…..unless I go across this backwater state to every used game store that I can find hoping they at least have a goddamn copy of Chin N’ Dale for the NES let alone the PS1 game I’d be looking for. Finding older games you miss deeply or missed out on sucks T_T.

So Terry, have you tried any Indie games? Any recommending? (Suggest you try Freedom Planter and Dust: An Elysian Tail if you havent)

I have played an indie title or two on a whim every now and then but with how rarely I can even get enough money for eShop or PSN I tend to stick with Virtual Console releases and HD ports of games from decades ago. But anyway just a week ago I recently played the Fall on Wii U, this game where you play this AI controlling a suit of armor trying to get medical attention for the unconscious pilot inside. It felt like what Dead Space would have been if it was in 2D and actually had subtlety, it’s a slow paced side scrolling shooter that also happens to be a click & point adventure game. I might be spoiling things too much but the ending sucked and pulled a “to be continued” ploy. It was one of those Kickstarter deals so I don’t know if there is even gonna be a part two.

__________________________________

There was also Azure Striker Gunvolt for the 3DS, something that Keji Inafune put out with Inte Creates’ help to tie his fans still waiting on Mighty No.9. It ended up being a more dickish “Mega Man Zero” than the actual Mega Man Zero games.

Get this, it actually pulls a literal "Get all six Chaos Emeralds to see the true ending" gag and a trollish one at that. You are literally collecting seven ”Jewels” from each of the seven stages before the “Wily Castle” stages at the end so that this girl you are protecting will give you a necklace you have to wear throughout the entire final level. But of course you can’t get the necklace yet until after you beat the game first and gewt the bad ending, then you start your file up again and if you got a seven Jewels you can get the Necklace so that you can replay the entire final level again while wearing it. You can’t just fight the boss with your good equipment either and then switch to the useless necklace before the final hit, you have to play the ENTIRE level from start to finish wearing this thing or else you get the shaft. And of course the true final boss is a damn troll.

So yeah fair warning, this is one of those games that wants to hate you with every fiber of its being and hopes you’ll take it like a good little bitch….don’t let it have its way. Beat this fucker down until it apologizes for being so spiteful.

And then there’s Shovel Knight for both the Wii U and 3DS. Finally got to play it. Not a hard game but later stages were kind of a pain given how this game’s punishment for deaths actually works. You die, you lose some gold and you actually have to go get it back from floating bags (and interestingly enough you don’t get any more loot drops from enemies up until the point where you previously died, nice touch to detail there) . if you died over pits or spikes then getting back what you lost could lead to some fits of battiness. But once you get everything in the game you even need gold for then dying is kind of a none issue, infinite lives and all. As with most games with infinite lives it can either improve or hurt your experience with it, there are people who find that having infinite lives makes things “unfulfilling” in video games.

It was as good as I was hearing everyone saying, strangely enough this was the most “Nintendo” game I’ve played in a while (not including Virtual Console titles).

A while ago I played Code of Princess on the 3DS, it might have gotten a retail release but it still feels like an indie title. One of those games that is notable for how little content it actually has after you’ve finished unlocking everything (which didn’t even take that long). It was fun for a while….

I also picked up Liberation Maiden on the 3DS eShop, one of those games you control with just the Control Stick and Stylus that actually ended up being really kick ass even with how short it was. You guys will really like this one.

Man I still need to finish Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, it’s still sitting unfinished on my Wii U hard drive. Hell I still need to finish DK Tropical Freeze, I just ended up getting caught up with other things it’s been stuck on my to do list for months now. Anyway besides Shovel Knight my biggest recommendation is still Mighty Switch Force 1 & 2, I just keep going back to those two games even after I beat them about a dozen times by now.

Man, you do realize just because YOU despise this roster, other people may actually like it? “Oh, I hate the roster so the Wii U version will bomb?” The 3ds version sold more than 1 million in its first week, so clearly the roster isn’t the issue. I think you’re forgetting the purpose of video games, to entertain. It shouldn’t be considered good because of playable characters The real thing people should give a damn about is if the game is fun. And this game is, absolutely. The roster was decided at the start of development, and the clones were added in because they had extra time and resources to put in a little extra. I’m not saying that it doesn’t suck that Ganon is the same, but with all the fun characters they made, I’m ok with it.

If only I still had as much optimism as you do about this. But really the thing is - each character in this game’s roster represents a small percentage, a fraction of value going towards an investment, a total sum of money that will determine just how much of a value this game will have for investors. And frankly with a triple A title with ungodly amounts of hype as Smash 4 I expect the value to match that hype.

What’s the asking price for 3DS games brand new? Like forty? And brand new Wii U games are like between fifty or sixty? If I want new games to play I have to pay up to forty, fifty or even sixty dollars of what little money I can afford to spend on at least ONE retail game (two if I’m even lucky) in Walmart or Fred Meyer or what have you around every month or so. And with that in mind, well, you can believe all you want I’m just fussing over little things but with everything in life there is nothing more important than the little things.

This roster I’m seeing? This is pretty much a gallon of milk that has not been filled up with all milk, a big enough portion of it is just water. Not even good water either, just ordinary tap water from some kitchen sink. I’d basically be paying for a product that is not up to what I am hoping to get. I have too little cash to just blindly buy whatever half assed product that cheapskate Sakurai is trying to sell me, I made enough mistakes with my money before and I’m not gullible anymore. I’m not paying for a product that I already know will not be worth every last dime.

_______________________________

On top of all that there’s still the ugly matter of how people were selfishly putting Nintendo’s entire future on this one game. As I’ve stated before this is the game that everybody, EVERYBODY was willing to throw Nintendo to the wolves over if they didn’t get it right this very second. People were so horrible about it, "Smash 4 or GTFO" as a lot of people said, frankly I find that 1 million in the first week you brought up to be just evidence of how disgustingly two-faced these people are about this crap. They didn’t really give a shit about anything else Nintendo would put out they only cared about Smash and were more than happy to see the Wii U die if they didn’t get what they want right this very second. Hell I bet with it on the 3DS they’ll gladly let the Wii U die anyway cause y’know they now got what they want and "they already own a Wii".

I wanted no part of that two-face horseshit, thinking about it I still don’t want any part of it….perhaps in a way, I’m actually kind of glad that Smash 4 isn’t exactly gonna be able to live up to my expectations. There are much better games on the horizon I need to focus on getting, namely Bayonetta 2….

Karaoke Night Final Megamix & Knuckles

Yeah these last few days have been dead space….

Ganondorf is the fucking same as before, he’s still a clone of Captain Falcon overall. All the footage I’ve seen (including this video) shows little promise, all they seem to have done was adjust his speed and give him some sword move that looks like a variation of Marth’s counter move but other than that he’s the same clone character as before.

The one thing everyone wanted in Smash 4, the one thing that I wanted more than anyone else from Smash 4, was Ganondorf with a whole different moveset. But nope, instead we got Dark Pit, Dr. Mario, Falco Lamarbi, a Rule 63 Marth clone named Lucina (I mean oh my God she even looks like Marth), some create-a-character player avatar from Fire Emblem:Awakening, Bowser Jr. (who at least has the Clown Car so I’ll give him that much) and oh yes Palutena. We just had to have her huh Sakurai? We just had to devote a lot more dev time to putting in another on of Sakurai’s characters who will no doubt has such god-tier frame data and stats along with Meta Knight and King Dedede cause of course it’s HIS game and fuck you for even thinking he’ll set aside his bias long enough to make every character balanced and fun.

They just….they just gave up around the end of development didn’t they? That’s what happened isn’t it? They probably wasted all this time on Palutena and Robin, probably scrambled to at least add Shulk from Xenoblade Chronicles, Bowser Jr. and the Duck Hunt Dog and then just gave up at the end and padded the roster because "oh this is a fighting game it has to have at least thirty plus characters in the roster or else it will be absolute shit".

Y’know what you fuckers in the dev team maybe we don’t need over thirty plus characters in our fighting games? Why don’t we just focus on the ones worth a goddamn and not pad out the roster with a bunch of clones and let downs? That’s what Killer Instinct for the Xbox One is trying to do and guess what? Everyone loves the fuck out of that game even with the small as balls roster! Kind of like in the good ol’ days when the most you could hope for out of a fighting game roster was eight. EIGHT. Any few more was a bonus and any few was unacceptable! Seriously I’m looking at the full roster list for Smash 4 3DS and out of the 49 listed I see at least 15 that don’t really need to be there.

What does need to be there is Ganondorf rocking a complete moveset overhaul, same for Luigi in fact. I mean even if he does play differently from Mario he’s just….”incomplete” to me. He could be absolutely amazing if they gave him his Poltergust 5000 for all his regular moves not just his new Final Smash, turn him into a ranged grappler character. In fact now that I see this Robin guy in action I believe that everything they wanted to do with that character regarding core moveset functionality they could have just done with Ganondorf, with all the magic powers and evil weapons that Ganondorf has in all these Zelda games it’s just a huge waste to have him just "hitting things really hard with dark energy fists".

Yeah my enthusiasm for Smash 4 is now tragically low. If this is all they did with the remaining time they had before launch then really I just don’t have much faith in this game as I once did when they revealed Mega Man. In fact now I’m even more disgusted with how everyone is making this game out to be "the game that saves the Wii U". Not if the Wii U version’s roster is the exact same as this it isn’t. I recall there was mention that the two versions will have different rosters, well it’s gonna be a few months ‘til the Wii U version so here’s hoping they do in fact spend that time putting in characters that are worth more of a damn than “Dark Pit”……oy vey…..

Sorry to keep bothering you, Terry, but here’s the finished product. I hope you don’t mind, I styled the second panel like one of your comics.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.

Ready? 

Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone could start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

Welp, this had better be worth the effort that everyone will be making, and it better not end up being yet another day in senate that becomes one big fat steaming pile of "nothing happens". Frankly I’m tired of hearing about a bunch of paid off corporate puppets in some dusty back corner of the senate trying to make themselves feel significant when we as a country got more important issues to worry about….

If there's any features you'd like to have/change in pokemon, what would they be?

atopfourthwall:

Oh, tons of features I’d like. Building my own gyms (why yes I am looking forward to ORAS), real-time battles (yes, I know about Pokken, but I don’t think there will be 718 Pokémon in that), customizable pokeballs (seriously why is this not a feature yet - it’d be a fun minigame!), the ability to return to old regions or at least play more than one league, etc.

I’d like to see original enemies and bosses myself, actual creatures that are not there to be “caught” but strictly to be fought and defeated to progress through the story. I mean it does sort of lessen the mystique of “boss battles” when said battles consist of fighting creatures you can have on your own team.

Hell what about those robots and vehicles you see all the time in the anime? So many of those would be great enemies and boss battles for Pokémon.
