  • Recently, I was watching classic Tom&Jerry shorts. Some years ago I'd gone on a binge of old Looney Tunes as well, and being older it was interesting to be able to compare and contrast the style of the two; Looney Tunes is a lot more verbal (unsurprisingly), but it's also notewothy that Tom is way more competent then his Warner Bros. peers, having a much higher win rate and being a lot more likely to get hits in when he loses.

    Though I had forgotten just how much Tom kisses Jerry.
    You know, I recently realized the number 1 thing I want in DP remakes.
    The ability to report Mindy for trade fraud, and get a glorious cutscene of her being handcuffed and led into a police van.
    It might be a lengthy court case but I think a jury would agree that anyone agreeing to trade for a Haunter is obviously expecting a Gengar.
    This is very late but is your user title a reference to Starkid’s Twisted?

    No, I'm not familiar with that. It's actually referring to a line from Disney's animated Aladdin film.

    Ah okay. Thank you for answering. It just reminded me a lot of one of the musical numbers in that show. Have a great day!

    I just learned (a few days late...) that SaGa Frontier is getting a remaster! The original game had quite a bit of content cut for release that is now going to be included! It's actually sweet because there was an interview with the director back in 2017 where he said he'd like to re-release the game with the cut features but was not sure if god would keep (him) alive until the day it can be realized," and now it's coming!
    I've loved the other SaGa games I've played so this is very exciting for me.
    I was replaying Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past and suddenly wondered; is it possible to re-fight Ganon? The answer is yes.
    If you drop down the holes after killing him he respawns when you re-enter the Pyramid.

    Wait, there's post game stuff in Minish Cap? It must be so small and insignificant if I don't remember.

    You are right about it being small and insignificant, it's only a Small Shield that you give to a giant Goron to convert it into a Mirror Shield.

    Yeah. That's so small it might as well not be post-game content.
    You know, if Pokémon had ended at gen 2 like a lot of people thought, it would probably be getting it's nostalgia sequel/reboot right about now, based off the number of other 90s properties doing so.
    In the past I've been annoyed at Pokémon always removing good features going forward, but at the moment I'm looking at the bright side:
    Gen 9 won't have me doing 10,000 max raid battles for it's post-game content.
    Becoming a vampire sounds cool--eternal unlife, turning into a bat--but it really isn't. Here's what you need to keep in mind:
    *It turns out being repulsed by religious iconography isn't a mild inconvenience the hero uses in the final moment but deeply inconvenient at all times.
    *You may or may not be killed by the sunlight. If possible please ask the vampire who bit you if your the type that dies by sun, is weakened by sun, sparkles in sunlight, or whatever. If your vampire dad or mom is deadbeat you're in trouble and--I know, this is shocking--records show that 47% of new vampire parents don't stick around for when their child raises from the grave thirsty for blood.
    *At a certain point every one of your tax returns is audited.
    *Turns out a bunch of other supernatural entities exist and you're pretty low on the pecking order. You can lord it over zombies, ghouls, and goblins, sure. But ghosts don't really care, and demons, sorcerers, and the Unseelie think you're a joke. Werewolves are sort of an even match but they instinctively hate you. Stock up on silverware.
    *You do not get a complementary cape. You must find a cape and purchase it yourself, with your own money.
    *Your Transylvanian castle is actually annoying to have. It's dusty, in a terrible state of disrepair, the architecture changes every year or so, and frankly? The flea men are making fun of you behind your back. But if you don't spend at least 180 days a year with it as your primary residence it stops being tax deductible.
    *Being unable to enter a private dwelling without invitation is a pretty big problem if you're not suave and charismatic. Dracula had a much easier time feasting on beautiful youth than Count Orlock is what I'm saying.

    So have a happy Halloween and remember; if a stranger asks if you'd like them to bite you and turn you into a vampire, be mindful and say no!
    I'm sure some people here remember when the Simpsons did the "Who Shot Mr. Burns?" two parter. It was a big event at the time and they held a contest to guess who did it. Apparently no one eligible for the prize got it right so they chose a random entrant who had guessed Smithers to win.

    Apparently the Mirage Hotel in Vegas put odds on various suspects:
    Seen a few things suggesting the odds were faked as part of the contest, though?

    No money was involved but my family put guesses down when we watched the episode. I put mine on Snake but I don't recall who anyone else thought.
    Krusty is bizarrely high considering he had a great alibi in part 1 that he'd been out of town for most of it and had no motive.
    Also Hans Moleman for some reason.

    Is that the reason they made that (supposed?) alternate ending?

    If you mean the one where it was Smithers I believe I read that it was done to throw off any internal leaks.

    From what I've read a similar trick was done with Empire Strikes Back; the famous Vader scene was initially filmed with him telling Luke that Obi-wan killed his father, and then the minimum required people dubbed over the proper dialogue (or something like that).
    Halloween thought of the day: what happens if a vampire tries to turn a werewolf?

    Underworld has something sort of similar to this, with various hybrids of a Lycan/Vampire. It's been a while but iirc one of the Vampire dominant of the hybrid is more bat-like than wolf-like, and I think he mainly had the musculature of a Lycan.

    The Vampire Diaries also has Lycan/Vampire hybrids, but it also has hybrids of other supernatural species. In this series' case, a Vampire/Lycan hybrid don't usually transform into their werewolf form due to the major physical and emotional pain of transforming, they only do so when it's absolutely necessary.

    Otherwise most other universes I know of a vampire can't become a werewolf since vampires are undead, whereas lycanthropy is more of a disease and people cursed with it are still alive unless cured in some cases. And some universes, regardless if a species is undead or not, the diseases/curses cancel each other out anyway, preventing them from becoming half of that other species.

    I guess there could also be another way, though this in reverse to your question, where a werewolf can maybe become a vampire if it's possessed; though I would assume that the possession would remove all imperfections of the blood, and removing the lycanthropy as well.

    There's an episode of the old Ghostbusters cartoon that asks this question, where they get called to a small town that's been taken over by vampires and then learn all the captured townsfolk are werewolves, resulting in an all out battle where they keep biting each other and turning into the opposing creature.

    My poor life decision for today was watching the trailer for BBC America's The Watch.

    It could very well turn out to be a fine show, but it sure didn't look like Discworld to me.
    When I was six or seven I rented Breath of Fire and got killed by the first boss. Today I started it on the Switch Subscription and finally got revenge.
    Who's laughing now, Frog? Who's laughing now?!
    Just a friendly reminder; in a few years we'll reach the phase where people start saying gen 6 was always the best gen.
    Feel old yet?
    One of those silly gen 1 things; a lot of Pokémon that appeared in the wild overly late (like Koffing) had really screwy level up sets, like Slowpoke learning Watergun at level 33. When G/S/C introduced breeding (and more reasonable capture times for a lot of gen 1 Pokémon, though sadly not so much for some of the new gen 2 ones) these got extensive learn set overhauls.
    Many that were previously available early got much more minimal changes, like Pidgey or Rattata.
    I'm replaying Heartgold and during my battle with rival in Azalea town my Pokémon hurt themselves while confused seven turns in a row. :bulbaFacepalm:
    Never thought I'd see a Zubat consecutively beat an Onix and a Mareep.

    Whitney status; defeated. It was a lengthy and annoying battle as it tends to be without specific 'mon (I didn't want to trade for Muscle and grind her up for one battle, and Heracross was too low level for any fighting moves and I sure wasn't going to get Rock Smash stuck on her moveset until Blackthorn city) but it's done. It was actually my Spearow that KO'd Miltank, surprisingly.
