TalkBack / Re: Theatrhythm Final Bar Line To Get Demo On February 1
« Last post by Ian Sane on January 30, 2023, 08:04:32 PM »
30 songs?!  I played the Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory demo and it had like 5 songs, which I thought was totally reasonable.  So this is pretty generous.  Looking forward to it!

Movies & TV / Re: Khushrenada Annual List of Watched Movies
« Last post by Khushrenada on January 30, 2023, 07:59:07 PM »
So after posting this I realize that this thread is ostensibly for Khushrenada to post lists of movies.  :-[  Khush, feel free to move this post to another topic.

It's fine. I only said that since I felt I was likely the only one to do the most future posting in this thread and might as well use it like a sort of movie blog of my own or something. Nothing wrong with other users joining the discussion with films they've watched.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: What will Nintendo release in 2023?
« Last post by Order.RSS on January 29, 2023, 12:53:42 PM »
As for my own predictions, here's what I got:

  • Nintendo will publish a virtual card game (in the vein of Heartstone, or Marvel Snap). It becomes a fairly big deal for a month or two, so they begin producing physical cards, but by the time those release interest will have died down.
  • NSO+ will add the following games: Hybrid Heaven (N64), and Crusader of Centy (Genesis), but will not add any new systems like Gameboy.
  • Advance Wars Re-Bootcamp will remain unreleased. We will see some credible reporting indicating NoA had contracted WayForward to also produce a remake of the 3rd and 4th games, but have canned the project.
  • EA revives the Medal of Honor series with an exclusive Switch game. It's a top-down tactics game, kind of like the Ghost Recon game on 3DS.
  • Yokai Watch 4++ gets localized for Switch.
  • Namco produces a Ridge Racer collection for all major consoles, but the Switch version gets delayed last-minute for unclear reasons.
  • We'll see a Mario Sluggers sequel get announced late in the year, with a tentative release date of Q1 2024. People speculate it will be the last major Nintendo game before Switch 2.
  • Around November a new entry in the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games franchise releases, ahead of the 2024 Summer Olympics. Someone wears a beret in the trailer since the Olympics will be in France. I'm thinking Luigi?
  • Bayonetta Origins becomes a modest success with the YA crowd. A manga or graphic novel adaptation will be announced.
  • Luigi's Mansion 1 gets a HD remaster which also includes the multiplayer component found on 3DS. Releases around Halloween.

Movies & TV / Re: Khushrenada Annual List of Watched Movies
« Last post by M.K.Ultra on January 29, 2023, 12:20:00 PM »
I am not so meticulous in tracking the movies I see, but I can recap some of the better films that came out in 2022 that I managed to catch. I am mostly interested in 3D movies so I will start with those:
M.K. Ultra's Top 3D movies of 2022
  • Brahmastra Part One: Shiva - a great Bollywood film with awesome 3D
  • Jaws - re-released in 3D last year, this was the first time I saw it
  • Jurassic World: Dominion - my favorite of the newer trilogy
  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness - as a fan of Sam Raimi, I really enjoyed this
  • Avatar: The Way of Water - nobody does 3D like Cameron
  • Dawn of the Dead - Another re-release, great zombie film from the eighties, classic Romero

As for 2D movies, here are the ones that I liked the most from 2022
M.K. Ultra's Top 2D movies of 2022
  • Three Thousand Years of Longing - Another great film by George Miller
  • Don't Worry Darling - Very thought provoking film by Olivia Wilde
  • Triangle of Sadness - Very dark comedy that made me laugh a lot
  • The Menu - another dark comedy that is probably easier for most people to enjoy than Triangle
  • Crimes of the Future - an original screenplay by my favorite director (David Cronenberg), I don't think we have had one of these since eXistenZ (1999)!

So after posting this I realize that this thread is ostensibly for Khushrenada to post lists of movies.  :-[  Khush, feel free to move this post to another topic.

Jeez I screwed myself out of points last year once again by going into too much detail.  Seriously, need to be brief this year to get the win.

Yeah, I'm hoping people will just post things they actually expect or want to happen. The points are just an afterthought for fun, not the actual goal here. Maybe we should count interesting predictions differently as opposed to punishing people for them since they didn't 100% pan out.

I'm seeing some of y'all post what Nintendo won't release. Looking at the Rules/Suggestions, this is more of a general predictions thread. Since that's the case and it isn't like there are real stakes here, we can all go 10 for 10 posting what won't happen. "Nintendo won't release a Star Tropics remake developed by Platinum Games" or "Nintendo won't license Jak and Daxter from Sony and release a Switch exclusive reboot" both work and would likely be easy points.

I don't mind predicting things which won't happen, but would prefer if those went against general expectations (e.g.: "Nintendo will not publish a Zelda game this year" is an interesting prediction, as opposed to near-certainties for easy points like "they probably won't sell Mario to Xbox").

For now I have a simple solution: Not-Khushrenada will be paid out in Not-Points this year, done. :)

Anyone watch that Lakers Celtics game?
Of course, I did. Bad reffing cost the Lakers three games definitely, possibly four. It is what it is.

Quote
Lakers gave up in OT
Ehh, I felt they were deflated from that non-call. They kept it within reach despite the circumstances. I give Davis a pass. This was his second game back, and he played well over his 20-24 minute minutes restriction.

This game isn’t close if Westbrook is average. The Lakers lost leads every time homeboy checked into the game. And if Pat Bev makes that one free throw, maybe we don’t have this conversation. If he doesn’t foul Brown, maybe we don’t have this conversation. That putback dunk was filthy though.

Also, Pat Bev is disgustedupvote.jpeg for me, but showing the camera to the ref was hilarious. I saw this on Reddit:

Anyone watch that Lakers Celtics game?

has there been a worse referre'd 4th quarter specifically so far this season?
Calling fouls that didn't happen... both ways, missing obvious fouls that the Ref was literally staring at from several feel away (Lebron Layup end of Regulation), stupid flagrants....
This 4th quarter was just fucking awful, and despite all that, the Lakers should've won in regulation.... but apparently, just as when Embiid help WB's wrist a few weeks ago, apparently Tatum didn't slap Lebron's arm down on that layup to end the game.

Lakers gave up in OT.... AD not getting back on D and just watching Brown run past him... that's when I knew it was over... even though there was still about 2.5m left in the game. and then WB with the block by the rim....smfh. comical, especially since Lebron was open in the corner right in front of him.

I feel Lebron's frustration.

« Last post by ThePerm on January 28, 2023, 06:23:31 PM »
Vampyres(1974) 8/10 I thought this was going to be one of those bad Jean Rollin Lesbian vampire movies, but this was a pretty good José Ramón Larraz Lesbian vampire movie.

House of Darkness 5/10 - They just took the first act of Vampyres and stretched it over a whole movie. Same conversational points.

Lair of the White Wurm -8/10  another similar movie, but this one directed by Ken Russell has some panache. This version had my favorite version of the countess archetype.
