I've seen the following animations, For Better or For Worse, The Boondocks, Baby Blues, Dilbert, Animal Crackers, The Peanuts, Garfield, Martin Mystery, Team Galaxy, Code Lyoko, Shuriken School and The Last Airbender.
Most Favorite: Night Hood: Exploits of Arsene Lupin
Edit: I do like anything related to Matt Groening.
I've seen a couple episodes of Phineas and Ferb. It's not bad, but it's very formulaic: Phineas and Ferb come up with something awesome to do for the benefit of somebody else, the sister gets bent out of shape and comes up with hare-brained schemes to get them busted, Perry goes on his secret agent missions against Doctor Doofenshmirtz (I'm probably not spelling that right), then it all wraps up with a "where's perry?" "grr" "oh hi perry!"
Props to the show's writers for lampooning the standard-fare in one of the episodes, though, where the sister says it all with an eye-roll before it actually happens.
The thing about P&F is that it has nearly 10 different "once an episode quotes" that will be said throughout the show, which will be lampshading, parodying, inverting and subverting throughout the episodes. So more than once episode has to be seen to actually hear some of the jokes.
Also if the recent episodes I'm soon are the newest ones, some of the plots don't have Candice trying to "bust" the boys.
There's also quite a few adult jokes and of course the SONGS!
S.I.M.P. Squirrls In My Pants.
And something videogame related.

Well, finally saw Toy Story 3 last night. Woody's flailing running animation still makes me laugh
Don't know why people found the ending sad to the point of crying though, thought it was a pretty happy ending. I mean yeah the kid has to let go of his good ol' toys, but by giving 'em to the little girl atleast they get to be played with. Just like Pokemon NEED to beat the shit out of each other dem toys need to be played with. Better then rotting away in the attic.
Though I'll be honest I expected the movie to go Plague Dogs the moment they accepted their fate in that incinerator scene.
It's sad and happy at the same time. On the one hand they get to stay together and keep being toys, and on the other they have to say goodbye to the owner they've dedicated their entire lives to and fought insurmountable odds to stay with several times.
The closest human analogy I can think of would be getting married and starting a family of your own, but never being able to see your parents again.
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.

nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.

Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.

Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.

Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.

Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

Nester the Lark: I may have a little time to catch my breath...

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
