Really? I thought that was a great Dick Dastardly. It was obviously Jim Cummings, but if I'd heard it completely out of context I would've immediately thought it was Jim Cummings playing Dick Dastardly.
In sad news it appears that Cartoon Network has decided to cancel Sym-Bionic Titan, as the show hasn't been renewed for a 2nd season and even creator Genndy Tartakovsky has moved on to Sony Pictures Animation.
An insider at CN had this to say:
"Genddy's moved on to Sony Pictures Animation. Titan got competitive ratings with other action shows, but what shut it down was it didn't have enough toys connected to it. If you don't have the, the studios don't want to renew for another season."
(Now think about Ben 10/it's spinoffs and how much merchindise that show has).
In good news, another episode of Joe Murray's Frog in a Suit is online. (It's better than the first episode).

That's the thing, it's a pretty depressing movie despite being about friggen stick figures. The pacing's great. By the way, here's part two. More depressing stick figure insanity!
About that hello pony thing... I'm not sure why it's so insanely popular all over the virtual place. I like PPG, but this doesn't seem all that special to me. I guess some dudes really dig the unicorns...
I love Friendship is Magic, and it is pretty awesome...but damned if I could really explain why. The animation is nice, streamlined and vivid - a nice deviation from the current trend of awful art style in cartoons, like Johnny Test, Metalocalypse, Squidbillies, Adventure Time, Flapjack, et cetera. Christ, I'm sick of that sort of shit.
I guess people are drawn to overt laziness. I mean, I grew up with Batman: the Animated Series and Gargoyles, and while this isn't me going on a diatribe about how things were so much better when I was young (though B:tAS and Gargoyles are far superior to most contemporary animation), I'm exhausted of animation companies treating its viewers like we're dumbass kids. Ren & Stimpy looks like fucking Van Gogh compared to most current cartoons - and I hate SpumCo's style.
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.

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...?

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.

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.
