@dudeglove: @thechris: If the previews are anything to go by, it seems like you can at least scare some people off by insulting them, but it probably not work on the people who will pull a gun on you, unfortunately.

@efesell: Sometimes it is, depending on the artist, but if we look at how it transforms Toadette by turning her hair blonde from pink, I guess people feel like that is the way to go, maybe.

@chummy8:Nice!

@imhungry: That would make more sense, yes. The Japanese "Princess Koopa" seems more correct as well.

@milkman: I can kinda imagine Miyamoto's expression upon checking Twitter after TGS. Looking at Fire Emblem, Xenoblade and even Zelda now, he is probably the last great bastion against turning Nintendo completely Horny.

@brunothethird:Yeah I don't see Nintendo adapting it either. Despite how stuff like Xenoblade and Fire Emblem is now, I don't think Bowsette would be in a game, unless it was some really way-off offshoot like a Super Princess Peach 2... and perhaps not even in that.

@bisonhero: Well, there definitely are some very musclebound variations out there as well. After all, none of it is canon so people can do whatever.

I would like the ability to "Like" comments and, in that way, see community approved comments float to the top, as a sorting option like YouTube does.

I thought the Resist ending was neat. Kinda subverted the whole trope that all the preppers in the region are fools. It also hit me with the realization that the boss bunkers weren't just bunkers... That they had dropped hints of the ending throughout the game.

GOSH!

  • Super Mario Series
  • Megaman Series
  • Castlevania Series (except SOTN. Finished that one)
  • Sonic Series
  • Bubsy Series
  • God of War Series
  • Ninja Gaiden Series

That's just off the top of my head. Never really been much into platformers in general.

@bladeofcreation: Personally I feel like YouTube and Giant Bomb are different. I have more faith in these focused outlets than YouTubers these days. There was a time some years ago where word on the street was that IGN, GameSpot and other sites were corrupt and that the likes of EA and Activision were paying for review scores.

Then YouTube came along and you got all these everyman types. Regular duders just like you and me who played games and had fun. Then the publishers got wind of it, started circumventing outlets in favor of getting in touch directly with YouTubers and giving them a few shiny baubles to shill their games. Look at this guy for instance. Completely normal dude blown away by the fact that Activision has sent him some swag to unbox on his channel. 400k views for an hour long advert for Call of Duty WWII Zombies, because kids love unboxings (someone in the comment even timestamped the point which he opens the box). I don't know about you, but I've never heard about this guy before and yet half a million people now have Call of Duty WWII in their awareness thanks to his unboxing video. Does it matter to Activision that nobody ever heard about him before? No it doesn't, because as soon as he burns out or start losing fans, another shill is already lined up to be sent some shiny baubles that he can parade around with for the big corporations.

My point is that YouTubers are fickle, don't need to have integrity and are easily bought, because there's always someone new to take their place. Big sites that make their livelihood on the business of reviewing video games, need to have integrity. They didn't use to, when they were the only ones around, but they certainly do now. Giant Bomb especially is a forerunner for long video content and Jeff Gerstmann in the smartest man in video games, so that is why I am supporting this site. Giant Bomb do the things they do at their own pace and don't let anyone pressure them into doing otherwise.

Full disclosure: I actually do support a couple of YouTubers on Patreon as well. I'm not completely in the hole where I think that ALL YouTubers are completely bad, my original point was simply that the monetized platform informs the content in a way where it gets filled with what's popular and you really have to dig for the interesting niche stuff.
