    That's so sweet of you to say. Thank you. You're a really great person too. I always forget my Bulbaversary and it is amazing to think how long I've been a part of this site, but I'm glad that I did since I became friends with you and quite a few other users too.

    I'm gonna go respond to the rest of the chat in a little bit but first, yeah that Extra Monster Zone is a real inconvenience. This took so much time and extra effort to pull off.

    Yeah, I imagine that can make some of the decks that rely heavily on the Extra Deck summoning hard to pull off. I'm still pretty excited about playing as Zarc though. I love your Yuya avatar by the way.

    So I've finally started the Arc-V story and they just didn't even try with some of these decks. It's like for the story based deck Yuya pre Junior League Championship his deck has at least 2 copies of Graceful Charity which he never once used, especially since its been banned since GX days.

    Not to mention they didn't bother updating DM character decks. Their all still the same original Legacy of the Duelist decks despite cards coming out after that game was made that characters used. Like Dark Sanctuary could have been added to Yami Bakura's Battle City deck.

    Hey it's all good. Your real life definitely comes before me so if you're busy there's no need to explain, I get it happens. A lot of other games always added regular Marik too. I guess as a way to duel Marik once you defeat Yami since it wouldn't make sense in a story mode to encounter him again once you beat him. But I do suppose in the case of Duel Links he wouldn't be needed since no one gets taken out in this world. I could see someone like Zigfried added one day too since he cards became real. Who knows though at this point its slim pickings for DM characters.

    Yeah really. I could see making certain Pokemon more common in other countries instead but to make them exclusive? Honestly that was a turn away from me playing a bunch after the first month. It's even like that now to me with the 7km eggs, I keep hatching Munchlax which is pointless given that we just had that Snorlax event. Eggs have just been frustrating in general lately.

    I think that Demak was referenced as being revived as well as if I remember right he was laying there with the other Dark Signers before being revived. I just assume he was revived and never shown again given he had no connection with any of the Signers. Misty was only mentioned that one last time to show she had no ill will towards Aki. Carly had to lose her memory, because as if they'd ever let a main character get involved with a relationship or love. Just tease it.

    I mean I'll give you that much. The carding was good tension because you only figured people were being carded to fuel whatever Leo was doing. While I did always figure if Leo was stopped the effects of his machine could be reversed and everyone restored it did seem like the damaged done to the Xyz dimension was more of a permanent sort.

    I will still stand by saying Arc-V caused spoilment and we hoped for something similar in Vrains. I mean the main character being the final enemy? Sure DM tried making it seem like at one point Yami Yugi was a bad guy but you knew it wasn't true. And then they had the bit about Judai being the Supreme King but he was corrupted. I feel like they're trying to mimick the idea of a main character as the final antagonist with Ai now but it doesn't have the same effect at all. Regardless I absolutely understand that your dislike of Vrains doesn't come from spoilment or deep love of Arc-V. You've made that point clear after everything you've said here. It would have been better if Bohman was more like Trueman. A multiple clone enemy that acted as a grunt for a final boss. Even still I won't make you discuss Vrains anymore then you want to (and I know you don't want to at all)

    Yeah unless you're trying to go through using Neos or Bladedge the Judai duels get tough. Yusei is even worse because his deck really does have no strong monsters outside his Extra Deck. At least if you use Stardust Dragons effect it frees that zone up. When Pendulum cards come next year I'm sure we'll still be fine. They could have already added that Extra Monster Zone since the days of GX being added but I guess they felt no need until we get Link Monsters due to the Link Markers. Yeah I know you like to keep avatars for a while. I remembered seeing people trying to give you grief for using your Christmas avatar beyond the holiday, you know as if you aren't an adult who can make her own decisions and use whatever avatar you feel like whenever you want to. Although a Yuya one right now would be funny given I've swapped to Yuri.

    I didn't know regular Marik was included in other games. I guess that makes sense if players still wanted to duel him after a story mode, but it doesn't seem too necessary for Duel Links. I wouldn't be against Marik becoming playable, but it would definitely feel like they're reaching pretty deep to find more DM characters too. Zigfried would seem plausible given his cards are already in the game. I could see them making a big event for the DOMA characters too.

    I haven't hatched the seven kilometer eggs for awhile just because I've been stocking up in five and ten kilometer eggs. I should open up my gifts more often and I have hatched shiny Pokemon before, but it is such a struggle to find worthwhile eggs. This wouldn't be too bad if I didn't have to spend money on getting more incubators so often. I just hope that they'll have another event where region exclusive Pokemon become widely available for a period of time.

    I don't think that they reference Demak again. He is lying with the other Dark Signers, but they never mention him again. It's true that he didn't have a connection with the other Signers, but the least they could have done was establish that all of the Dark Signers aside from Godwin and his brother were still alive. Carly didn't have to lose her memories, but that was probably the basic reason behind it along with how the head writer can't write women to save his life. It might not have been that bad if we did get more Jack and Carly ship tease moments afterwards, but we really didn't.

    That's one of the many aspects about Arc V that I love so much. There was good conflict and tension through the series and there weren't a lot of instant fix it solutions. The dimensional war, for better or for worse, changed everything in the four dimensions. Things couldn't go back to the way they were beforehand. Heartland is still in ruins and it will take time for them to rebuild the city, but they are able to take a step forward and enjoy dueling again in order to start the healing process. Instant fix it solutions aren't necessarily bad. Those have been part of the franchise from the start, but it helps if they're established early enough and the characters still have to work to get to that point. I appreciated that Arc V didn't really go that route for most of its conflicts. It made the resolution feel more satisfying and earned than if they had their own Numeron Code like plot device that just undid all of the damage from the dimensional war.

    I wasn't really hoping for something similar with Vrains. I would have liked that, but I just went in hoping that I'd like it. Once the head writer was revealed, my expectations dropped significantly. This is the same person who wrote Zexal and the Arc V manga. If you ever wanted to hear me complain about something Arc V related, then I can go all out against that overrated manga. I was hoping for something surprisingly decent at best like the Zexal manga. Vrains is just not decent or even a standard Yu-Gi-Oh! series in my opinion. It would be much less frustrating if that was the case. Bohman being the grunt instead of the final villain of the season definitely would have been a better option. I'm still not sure what was the point of Bohman thinking he was the real Yusaku or why they needed to devote so much time in perfecting Bohman in the first place. It just contributed to the lack of direction the season had, as well as making it much less impressive for Yusaku to defeat Bohman. He already defeated him twice before and their third duel ended in a draw. They had to work so desperately to make Bohman look more like a threat to make up for that. I don't think that Yami Yugi was presented as the villain unless you're referring to the DOMA arc or the early volumes of the manga. They also weren't terribly clear on what the Supreme King was in GX. Ai becoming a villain doesn't work for quite a few reasons, but I'm also still of the opinion that it's some kind of act rather than making him really evil.

    We can talk about Vrains if you want to. I just had a lot to say before, as well as now apparently, because I think that most other series handle tension and personal motivation much better than Vrains does. Plus, I don't think that my issues with Vrains all come from my love of Arc V. I know that you weren't saying that earlier, but people have brushed off my opinions before in a similar manner. Plus, if the preview summaries that I glanced through are any indication, I'm sure that I'll have plenty more to say when they start focusing on Onizuka.

    I'm still not sure how they'll handle Pendulum cards in Duel Links, but hopefully they'll fit relatively well in the Speed Duel format. Hopefully Link monsters won't cause too much problems. Yeah, I remember people giving me static for using a Christmas avatar for most of January. It was not a particularly fun time. Hopefully that won't happen when I have my Christmas avatar next year too. I've often thought of having a Yuya avatar, but I probably have too many options to choose from as well.
    Thoughts on the Season 2 finale of Tangled if you've seen it, yet? :eek:

    King Edmund and Eugene's interactions were pretty funny. I remember thinking that Cassandra was going to be a red herring at the end of the previous episode, but it turned out that both she and Eugene betrayed Rapunzel for different reasons. Getting another forty-five episode season premiere would be great and definitely warranted with a cliffhanger ending like this one. They'd need to explain why Cassandra absorbed the Moon Stone and what the goal is for the new season. More songs would also be great. I want them to air season three as soon as possible, but I'm also going to miss this show when it wraps up. Hopefully season three will still be a solid end to the series.
    Galar Adventurer
    Galar Adventurer
    Yeah. Chris Sonnenburg (the executive producer) has confirmed on social media that Cassandra's motive for betraying Rapunzel will be revealed in season 3.
    As for its premise, most fans have begun theorizing that Zhan Tiri will be released and will be the season's final main antagonist, while a reformed or mostly reformed Varian and Rapunzel whether they like like it or not, will have to join forces with the combined powers of magic and alchemy to stop him as it took both science and magic with Demanitus' machine to stop Zhan Tiri's blizzard in Queen for a Day.
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    That's pretty cool. I figured that they would have to explore Cassandra's motivation in the next season after that cliffhanger ending, but confirmation is always good. That is a pretty interesting theory too. They have been building up Zhan Tiri a lot more than I thought they would. I thought it was just a one time villain, but it has been used a lot more frequently with this season. That would make sense as a reason to bring Varian back, but a part of me thinks that they would have hinted at him more during this season if he was going to play a big role in the third one. Granted, they couldn't just meet him on the road or have him be on the same boat with the other prisoners from Corona, but I kept expecting him to show up at some point during this season too. I wouldn't be against that theory since it sounds pretty neat though.
    So now I'm thinking I was wrong before and the field is fully updated. Originally I didn't notice an Extra Monster Zone because the field spell on display in screenshots didn't make it look like there was one. Now after looking at new screens I'm seeing that the pendulum zones are with the spell and trap zones which does mean its updated. I suppose we can only hope that for the story mode it's not mandatory.

    That sounds really cool. I didn't think of buying the Japanese version to see how it plays. I just hope that they'll include both English and Japanese voices for the western release. I hope that you'll enjoy playing it.

    Well haven't started yet as I need to go do a few things first but what made me opt to buy it is seeing that despite this being from the Japanese eshop the game is fully playable in English meaning that (at least to me) this is the Western version we'll get too if it's fully in English, including all the cards. Makes me wonder why our official release is pushed back then.
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    That sounds pretty cool. It's possible that they needed more time to record English dialogue, alter the dialogue to fit with the dub versions and/or edit any of the cards. They could possibly use the dialogue recorded for Duel Links for the first three series worth of characters, but they would need to record more dialogue for at least the Arc V, Zexal and Vrains characters available in the games.
    Indeed. Can't believe Season 2's coming to a close already. I won't link the source because one song its tracklist contains a spoiler, but I can confirm that a season 2 soundtrack for Tangled is getting ready to drop soon. :)
    As for Milo Murphy's Law, it's had a few duds here and there, but I've actually enjoyed its season 2 for the most part.

    And on that note, another film, The Phineas and Ferb Movie has been announced for Disney+.


    In this all-new animated feature length adventure, Phineas and Ferb travel across the galaxy to rescue Candace
    who has been abducted by aliens and taken to a utopia in far away planet free of pesky little brothers.

    Ferb's new actor from The Phineas and Ferb Effect, David Errigo Jr, will continue to voice him.





    Disney+ launches November 12, 2019 with a monthly fee of $7.00 bucks or an annual fee of $70.00 bucks.

    Same here. Not gonna lie, while it had some of its moments, I thought that island filler arc was kind of meh, tbh.
    Yeah, I enjoy Doofenshmirtz as much as the next person but I kinda wish they would show some of the other cast as well.
    Heck, Phineas and Ferb took Milo's offer to come visit his side of Danville every now and then, but that's never even happened yet. But oh well.
    While I'm not much of a shipper, I do like that Amanda/Milo finally seems to be becoming a thing though and that she's grown to tolerate Murphy's Law.

    Indeed. I was iffy on Disney+ in the beginning, but it sounds great. I'm surprised that it's actually affordable, too. $7.00 per month isn't bad at all. :LOL:
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    Yeah, for a season that was all about traveling outside of Corona, I think that they had the cast spend a bit too much time in certain locations for awhile. The island is a prime example of that and probably factors into the pacing issues the season has. They probably wanted to save a bit on backgrounds, which does make sense, but added a few bumps on the journey at the same time. It might flow better upon rewatching it though and it still a pretty great season as a whole.

    There have been a few episodes where I think that the creative team just misses writing Doofenshmirtz and Perry episodes. They might be saving featuring more Phineas and Ferb characters for near the end of the season. Milo and Amanda seemingly becoming a couple is rather cute and it feels like a gradual buildup from Amanda's appearances throughout the series. For all the content Disney+ is going to have, seven dollars a month is certainly a good price. They probably wouldn't want to have the price too high when there are so many other streaming services to compete with nowadays.

    Heya, Mew. I was just wondering if you'd heard about Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist Link Evolution and/or if you were going to consider getting it?
    Reactions: Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    Yeah, it would be kind of weird to get that late into Arc V's storyline without Zarc. I just hope that we can get good artwork of all the characters and it won't just be reused when we get an Arc V world in Duel Links. I'd still be happy with an Arc V Duel Links update even if they do use the same artwork from this game, but I would hope for more new artwork and voice recordings would come with it. Some of the DM video games were also pretty weird. Some of them didn't even bother following the rules of the games and emphasizes the attribute of the cards, like how water cards could instantly destroy fire cards. It was confusing. I'm not surprised that the Tag Force Special had so little of Arc V. It was announced relatively early into Arc V's run, so they would have limited options available for the characters and their decks.

    I remember just how badly Zexal Duel Carnival was butchered in the U.S. version. On one hand, I kind of don't blame them for cutting out some of the characters. They included a lot of the one shot characters from Zexal and I don't know how many people would be interested in playing as the girl who could talk to dogs or the random soccer player kid, especially when Zexal was never that popular in the west at least to begin with. But on the other hand, they really should have included at least all of the main and prominent supporting characters. It was strange that they didn't include all of Tron's family and especially the Barians. That basically doomed the video game to poor sales, which was a shame since I liked playing through some of the different characters' storylines. I just hope that being on the Switch will lead to pretty good graphics. I never thought we'd get a Yu-Gi-Oh! video game on a Nintendo system again, so I'm hoping that it will look good and especially that it will be fun to play through.

    So I see they announced today that it's set for Western release sometime this summer. Still kind of a vague release time but it does at least confirm its coming at some point in the next few months.

    I mean I wouldn't be surprised to see it reused in Duel Links since all character models of series there now seem like they were the standard models used in the previous games. Even still come Duel Links for Arc V they're bound to have a lot of lines. To me it seems that with each new series added characters have a lot of card lines. I mean Jack and Yusei seem to have 3 times as many lines as Yugi or Kaiba. Yeah those original games were odd. It was a nice way to be able to beat some harder characters but at the same time I dont want my Blue-Eyes that I just summoned destroyed so easily by a 500 attack point Shadow type. Definitely it's just a shame. If they would have held off Tag Force Special another few months it could have had more in depth for early Arc V at least.

    Duel Carnival was just over killed with the US release. I'd had the Japanese version because I had a Japanese 3DS for some Dragon Ball games that never got released outside of there so I'd gotten this game too and while it did seem a bit lazy the Japanese version wasn't that bad. Hearing about the English version though geez. I dont blame them for cutting out some characters but to cut 2/3rd of them is a bit extreme. I had my hopes we would get a game on the Switch eventually but I do have to say those hopes were slim given the success of Duel Links and them more focused with making money with that.

    That's awesome news. I was worried we wouldn't hear about a western release for months. I'm not too surprised by a vague release date. They might be still figuring out when to release it, but summer sounds good. Hopefully it will be around June instead of August, but I'm still thrilled that they didn't take long to announce a western release at all. It's going to be pretty hilarious to me if this game comes out before the Vrains dub gets a U.S. premiere. I think Canada has already aired all of season one, but there hasn't been any official announcement for a U.S. premiere and even the premiere in Canada had absolutely no attention. That hopefully shouldn't affect the video game's release date since the dub has aired and the subbed version is legally available too, but it's just going to be funny to me if we get a video game featuring Vrains before an English dub even airs.

    I've also seen the cover for the game. It looks pretty cool. I wish that all of the protagonists were standing together, if only so that there was a better picture of Yuya, but that would be a lot of characters to put in the center and of course they'd want Yami Yugi and Yusaku standing together. It is still a pretty awesome cover though.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that happens either with a eventual Arc V Duel Links world, but I'd just like to see some more new artwork too. At least recording some more lines would be nice and I still hope that they'll include the Japanese audio for this game. Just seeing and hearing the characters in new content would make me really happy in both games. I remember playing Reshef of Destruction and that type strength/weakness idea definitely made duels more difficult than they needed to be.

    I don't remember hearing much about the Japanese version of Duel Carnival. I think fans liked the idea of playing through so many characters. Even if I liked Zexal more than I do, I don't know if I'd want to play as nearly every character in the series. Playing as one shot characters sounded boring. While the game was enjoyable, it was pretty repetitive to do the same thing with each character. They all had different stories and events played out differently, but since it was all about getting to the Duel Carnival tournament, it still felt a bit repetitive and dull after awhile. That might have been one other reason they cut out so many characters, but they really should have kept at least the more recognizable character. No one cared about playing as the one shot filler characters. After how poorly the Duel Carnival went, I didn't have much hope for a proper Yu-Gi-Oh! video game again. The focus on Duel Links didn't make it too likely either. The mobile game has been quite successful, so I wouldn't have blamed them for sticking with what works. But I'm glad that they're able to get a video game for the Switch. I playing through the storylines from various series sounds great and I want to play the Arc V story mode so badly. That is the biggest selling point for the game as far as I'm concerned. This is the closest I'll get to a proper Arc V video game and I'm going to take it.

    I just haven't gotten around to changing my avatar yet. I didn't think it was that big of a deal. I'm pretty sure I had this avatar for awhile after Christmas last year, so I don't know why I'm getting comments about it now. It really shouldn't matter to anyone that I'm still using my Christmas avatar, so I wish people would just stop getting on my case about it.
