    I think this is definitely what I consider the most painful stretch of episodes in all of Dragon Ball Z Kai. Gotenks could have been fun for one episode, but he's not a good character to focus on for...

    This week's batch of episodes might be my favorite part of the entire Buu arc. That being said, I've been excited to hear their thoughts on the upcoming batch because they should be very...interesting...

  • Seeric posted a message in the forum topic Consensus: Switch Pro Controller Or GameCube Controller?. on the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate board

    I use a GC controller for Smash and like it a lot, though I don't have a Pro Controller to compare it to. Price was a factor here as I already have working GC controllers from back in the days of Mel...

    @companionpube: Gender roles are social constructs and, like any constructions, they can be deconstructed and reconstructed anew as demographics and social norms shift. Writing beautiful poetry and ca...

    @matmaelstrom11: Not all pandering to fans is sexist, but when that pandering takes the form of having the defining character trait of multiple female characters be their desire to serve and fulfill t...

    There's also a world of difference between a character "wearing a sexy outfit" and a character being deliberately framed in an objectifying way. When a character is clearly embarrassed by or otherwise...

  • Seeric posted a message in the forum topic Sexism in JRPGs. on the General Discussion board

    It's about par for the course for more mainstream JRPG's, though Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is an especially egregious example. I'd say it generally started happening around the PS2 era, partially because...

  • Seeric posted a message in the forum topic Discord is, unsurprisingly, launching a game store/subscription service. on the General Discussion board

    Depending on how this shakes out, it would be nice to have another platform which is more curated than Steam and itch, but not quite as gated as GOG. I do hope it ends up working out since Valve coul...

  • Seeric posted a message on the post La-Mulana 2.

    La-Mulana 2 is a game that works really well if you're playing it blind alongside a friend or a group to share notes (or with someone ahead of you who is good about not spoiling stuff). I doubt we'll...

    I'm torn on this one, though I'm leaning towards preferring if they took a break to watch a different show. Speaking from some fairly recent experience with binge watching Kai, the Buu saga has some ...

  • Seeric posted a message in the forum topic What's the best JRPG story?. on the General Discussion board

    It's not the best story and it's still ultimately about saving the world, but Dragon Quest 5 felt really refreshing. I loved that it spans a (by RPG standards) long stretch of time where you follow a...

    Black Desert Online has action-y combat and only requires a fairly low initial entry fee. There's honestly not much to it and it doesn't have much of any endgame to speak of so it doesn't make for a ...

    Well, the "Tug O'War" minigame in Mario Party led to me physically damaging the palm of my hand with the N64 analog stick as a kid, so I'm going to go with that one.
