Gotham High Hey everybody! We have a huge treat in store for you this week from the Jeff and Celeste vault of awesomeness. Batman is both mine and Celeste’s favorite superhero and some time about a year and a half ago, we were approached to create a spec series based off of an old drawing of mine that we then sent to DC. Unfortunately, the project got lost in the sea of all the other Batman related projects in the works. But hey, it was still fun to make.
The Story Synopsis: We all go through incredible changes as teenagers: growth spurts, bad skin, a sudden insatiable need to uphold justice and avenge your murdered parents…. Well, that is if you’re Bruce Wayne. As if being a freshman at Gotham High wasn’t tough enough, Bruce’s insomnia and technological fascinations are taking their toll. Instead of spending his time studying, he has begun to obsess over an emerging personality trait: Batman. But under the watchful eye of his guardian and steward, Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce is forced to put his intelligence to good use: graduating high school. But given his classmates, can Bruce survive Gotham High?
In other words . . . Bruce Wayne in high school and all of Batman's villians as other students . . . WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT, I DON"T EVEN. It seems like the idea of a webcomic, possible bad webcomic.
On a lighter note, Batman Beyond/Batman of the Future nearly ended up becoming "Batman in high school" could these projects possible be related?
I have a looooot of issues with the premise, execution, writing and characterization. It's not as bad as - say - the Teen Titans cartoon (XME had some enjoyable episodes, didn't phone in on the animation, and wasn't the perfect Weeaboo Shithead anime-wannabe), but there were still a lot more flaws than not.
At least, in my opinion.
(Also, Rogue's manjaw buttchin crept me out. Just sayin'.)
(And after seeing the title seqeunce, I can confirm that Rogue really DOES have a butt chin. There's like a thin vertical line in the middle of her chin)
While on the topic of butt chins vast amounts of cartoons uploaded online for ease of watching, NeoGAF has ended up leading me to a site called Master Toons which appears to upload an entire old cartoon series (and recent series soon after there TV permeires) everytime they get another 100 people to join their facebook page. And for some fucked up reason they have also done the stupid decision to upload recent animated movies as well (Eg Toy Story 3, Megamind).
* It's like the people's choice awards for bad movies
In awesome news, the full set of ReBoot DVD's are coming out this week!
copy paste info
This 9-disc Definitive Mainframe Edition has all four seasons of the show; a 20-page booklet including episode summaries, original airdates, fan art chosen by ReBoot's original production designer, and more; a 3-D lenticular postcard; and an exclusive bonus disc with a documentary on making ReBoot, a retrospective by series co-creator Gavin Blair, as well as animated character models. It's $70, and the only place to get the complete collection is at Shout Factory at the link above. If you're low on cash, Amazon has the Seasons 1 and 2 set here for $21.
Don't know how many of you may have seen the old Hanna-Barbera Wacky Racers show, but apparantly someone tried to pitch an update to the series called Wacky Racers Forever starring the decendants of the original series characters.
Cartoon Network rejected it.
After seeing it, it's not bad and it's certainly watchable.
For those who don't know, that's Jim Cummings as the voice of Dick Dastardly. He's also the voice of Pete from Goof Troop and Pooh from Winnie the Pooh. One of my favorite voice actors EVER (we even share a birthday XD), but yeah. As Dick Dastardly he doesn't really fit.

I friggen loved Wacky Races as a kid, mostly because it was about a bunch of goofy characters cheating their way to the finish line, basically making it Mario Kart the cartoon. This pilot makes it seem like that douche Peter Perfect jr'd be the main character.
Not sure what's worse, prequels starring the original cast as annoying teenagers or sequels starring the cast's children who are annoying teenagers.
Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
