Wreck-It Ralph:

[up] Wait, what?

I don't know how speech bubbles are triggered in Q*Bert, but in the movie, they pop up when he, er, "talks". The fact Ralph's speech bubbles are, instead, superimposed, shows how much of a Punch Clock Villain he is.

As for your other (off-topic) points: for KM, see my Flat "What." at the top of the post; as for X and Y, most likely (gonna post it on WMG) X stands for the mystery of existence, while Y stands for the search for an answer as to why we exist.

Found several Let's Play s of the Sugar Rush game. :D Odd how I could never find gameplay of this game weeks earlier and then all of a sudden they all just popped up. This one had none of the game's audio and has the gamer's commentary over it.

The next one has the game's audio. I wish the game had those floating marshmellows who carry the flag to start the races.

KM: You get to fight/play out an action movie scene. As a test.

Speech bubbles: Ah, right. I wonder if they'd trigger for other people not speaking English.

[up] Sent you a video via PM, since it would be too off-topic (KM again) to be mentioned in the thread.

[EDIT: Back on topic, anyone knows why the title in the movie (after the first Bad-Guy Affirmation) doesn't use the 8-bit font used for the logo? I know that font had been used in early promotional art and later trailers, but...]

Oh yeah, we can't forget how apparently guards in Metal Gear games carry around a physical exclamation point, to go off over their heads when they're alerted.

I already got my fill of Sugar Rush videos last month, but there are some other games I'd like to see recorded, like the new iPhone games, or how Hero's Duty works with all the different cheats, since I never got around to using those.

I did find one video review of the Storybook Deluxe app. It's a short review, just random clips rather than a whole play through. So it's got a few new tracks, some of which look like good imitations of the circuit they ran in the movie. I'm seeing that there are only five racers at a time, and power-ups come from wrapped candies instead of sugar cubes. The reviewer said you choose your own special ability ahead of time and used what looked like an ice cream scoop fling, although the way it expanded made me think it could have been a bubblegum bubble.

It's funny, I stopped seeing people make video reviews of the Wreck-It Ralph multi-game app just before it got a big update. I have read in text comments that not only does it add TurboTime, it's also got new music for Sugar Rush Sweet Climber (which I learned from one video review uses tilt controls), and Ralph actually says "I'm gonna wreck it!" at some point. Hey, it was the most requested feature after swipe controls. I did find this nifty 3D intro from it today.

Ah, and there's also some sort of contest for Galaxy phones, but I don't really understand how it works.

I wish the game had those floating marshmellows who carry the flag to start the races.
It'd be fun to see those, as well as the "Jumbotron", but mainly I'd like there to be more than two kinds of candy spectators. The Teddy Grahams don't even have the shortbread cookies with the hand-drawn animated cats on them mixed in! Those were funny.

Hmm...
The X and Y probably stand for Pokemon Chromosomes. That, and they were running out of colors. (Damn! I so wanted to play Pokemon Orange and Purple! [lol])

wild mass guess: I wonder if X will have a Female-gender Legendary, and Y a Male one? wink

If they ever go with a Pokemon game in a medieval/feudal setting similar to conquest, but have it be a traditional Pokemon game, Gold and Purple would actually be pretty nice picks for colors.

I want to play Pokemon Brown.

Respect the Red Right Hand
I really only want two things from Pokemon at this point:

1. A game built off X and Y's engine, but based off the anime.

2. A game where you get to play as Team Rocket. Bonus points if you get to play as the Team Rocket.

I admit half of this comes from my primary exposure as a kid being the anime- I watched it for about half of season 1 before ever seeing the game.

What? Team Rocket got nominated to star in Pokemon Brown? What are you talking about?

Wreck-It Ralph got nominated for BAF[awesome]
Who wants to play Video Games!
Second banana
Ah yes, the Baf awards!
"Doorknobs: not actually that long a period of historical significance."
The Academy Awards, guys.

Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
Its competition is rather slim this year, too. While they were all good film, I'd say out of Frankenweenie, Paranorman, Brave, The Pirates!, and Wreck-It Ralph, Ralph is the only one that was a great movie.

The only way it can lose is if the Academy wants to go with stop-motion over CGI, and gives it to Paranorman.

The fact they grabbed all 3 stop-motion films into the category when they have a slew of others to pick from shows they're kind of biased. So I wouldn't be surprised of one of those 3 won. Of the CG movies, Ralph has the better story, so I hope that's the case.

Legendary Outlaw? ...Forget it.
No, I agree that those are probably the five best animated films of the year. The only other one I can think of is Madagascar 3, which has no business being nominated.

Was I the only one who took way too long to figure out that Sour Bill wasn't wearing a flat blue hat at the end, but a piece of the lollipop plant he was stuck to?

Now I wish that were a real hat for him.

*pfffffffffffffffffffffffffffffft*WHOA-WHOA-WHOA... WHOA! WHAT? Best Animated Feature?!? YESZ! Go, Ralph! And may you Wreck the everlasting hell out of them!

Also, the movie's gonna win due to its often serious tone.

[EDIT: Thanks to kyun for bringing us back on topic.]

Nah. You should thank the Academy Awards for giving me something to post about so we can get back on-topic!

Oh, heh heh, so the day after I complain about there being no new video reviews of the 4-in-1 app, there's a review! Gee, I wonder what Turbo was so worried about if his game was in high-resolution 3D in like 1980. tongue

I see that the UK channel has begun adding a few more of those mock documentary ad things. Remember how some of the French videos ended with music from the beginning of the first trailer, that fake in-game music? Well these videos end with that music from the middle of the second trailer. I think it's just promotional music Disney made up for it, but at one point I guessed it was some cover of "Everybody Have Fun Tonight".

[up][up] I was actually having a hard time finding something about the movie to discuss, my latest attempt being the movie's logo's absence in the movie.
