You make him sound like he's Shinjiro from Persona 3.

In regard to the second Legacy Collection, I just want to say that people need to learn to appreciate Mega Man 7 and 8 more. I know the general attitude they got, and still get today, from fans. ("Mega Man 8's voice acting is legendary for being bad, so let's only focus on that and not the actual gameplay, huh huh huh.") It's quite ridiculous that they think Mega Man has to stay in 8-bit in order for his games to be likable. It's like bitter old-fashioned seniors refusing to accept change despite it's happening right in front of them.

I think people would be less snarky towards 8 if Capcom would stop rereleasing the english version of the game but I guess that's almost as hard as rereleasing the Saturn version of the game. Also you can blame Capcom for 9 and 10 being 8 bit instead of being 32 or 64 bit because apparently it's much too expensive.

It's funny when you consider the U.S. Capcom branch didn't even produce 8 or X4's dub and had nothing to do with either. It would be great if they would just redub the game using the much more talented and professional VAs from Powered Up, rather than be lazy and make us listen to those random native English speakers that were living in the local Tokyo area over and over.

I blame the fans more since they actually whined and argued that Mega Man 8's whole look was a sign of Mega Man "losing his identity" compared to the other platform mascots of the time transitioning to newer systems, which is still utter bull to this day.

Seems funnier now when the other half of the fanbase won't shut up about how Capcom is "disrespecting" the series by not pumping any new games particularly in the X or Legends series the former being rather egregious given how bad the reception to X6 was.

They're more picky than the Sonic fanbase is.

I was about to make a joke about how a boob will likely serve as the ball, but then I started thinking about an actual ball of flesh careening around a pinball table and squishing into bumpers and started to feel very uncomfortable.


You might not want to think about Zingy Bingy then. It's an unfinished pinball machine whose existence is, well, disputed, but according to TV Tropes: "players would use penis-shaped flippers to shoot the pinball into vagina-shaped saucers, while breast bumpers knocked the ball around."

You won't find any information about it on the official site of the late Python Anghelo, however, who (allegedly) designed the game and did its artwork. He considered it an old shame comparable to the Star Wars Christmas Special and ensured no one would ever be able to see it or play it.

I might want to give the Senran Kagura digital pinball a try though, as I'm curious to see how modern Japan interprets pinball and how it differs from modern western digital pinball and modern physical pinball.

Wow, it takes a lot to out-picky the Sonic fans, considering they're legendarily unpleasable (and even in matters not pertaining to Sonic).

Talk of RPGs hitting the west and not a single paragraph about The Legend Of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel's stunning PC release? For shame, it's fantastic.

Yeah, I was hoping it would at least get an offhand mention. Oh well.
