Right after the lesbian barbarian is added Kappa.
OMG, someone is morphing into Nyte here...
Wait, I don't have very much experience with this, but I'll do my best. Ahem: WHAT WHAT WHAT!?

All joking aside, I'm still holding out hope on the Tifster.

I can hear tifa says her most memorable quote "time for your dick flattening" during her Critical Edge. Kappa
Lisa, lame meme recycling is like drinking your own pee: rarely as funny as it sounds in the abstract and just plain sad for the person who has to do it. Kappa

But all "defending the honour of my 'best girl'" flaming aside, can someone explain to me (as a person who doesn't really follow fandom memes) where did this "dick flattening" thing comes from oriignally? I presume something that dumb sounding could not have possibly made it into FFVII Remake, and that, like most eye-roll-inducing memes, has just has incestuously been repeated and remixed in the bowels of the internet despite the fact that original variant wasn't really at all funny and never made any sense as even an attempt at humour? But this one came on so suddenly, I feel like the exact origin point must be known?

I need to keep in mind that I never played any Zelda game so I never felt any kind of attachment.
A gamer who has never played any game in the Zelda franchise? I'd heard that they exist, but I never expected to see one in the wild that was not a juvenile specimen. Best David Attenborough impression: Extraordinary! Seriously though, do we need to take up a collection for an NES Classic for you!? Play one of those games!

All the SW cast was absolutely out of place for obvious reasons but Vader had the most down to earth style and after a bit of polishing and tinkering it could really fit some regular, new character in the series. Starkiller was ok I think but Yoda was absolute worst piece of Gon-tier level trash.
Starkiller may have been a part of that EA marketing push to convince people that The Force Unleashed was going to be a genre-defining milestone in gaming (rather than the rather forgettable/milk toast title it actually ended up being), but I would still say he was the best of those characters: unlike the other two, he had a pretty well-defined moveset that PS could work from, so he feels more or less like a natural transplant.

Vader on the other hand moves so slowly, and half of his moves feel more appropriate to a WWE game than Soulcalibur. I do think it is kind of interesting that later Star Wars films kind of utilized a similar approach the character (a slow but nigh unstoppable force), but I don't know, the moveset just didn't feel 100% aesthetically on point; certainly a viable, balanced, and interesting moveset from a purely mechanical perspective, but off when you've already had three decades of exposure to that character at the time that the game came out. Also in that vein (and I know this is a very narrow nitpick, but...) I play SC games in Japanese typically, and their fail there has to be heard to be believed!

Yoda I feel was a missed opportunity. If they were going to add him at all (as opposed to any number of other potential Star Wars light side protagonists, even considering they had to have immediate and recognizable appeal) they needed to do a butt-load of extra animations so that not so many moves (and thus most usually guaranteed combos) whiffed against him. If they had been willing to reanimate throws for everyone against him, as well as some other moves, he could have worked. But of course they were not willing to do that, so instead they just nerfed him into the ground so there was no chance he could be abused against anybody but the scrubbiest of scrubs--because his being OP in the context of half of all moves flying over his head would have mad people much more furious than just having an extra, mostly useless character.


So the one person we are not talking about but who might reasonably be described as a guest is Necrid. I know even just mentioning him threatens to open up the floodgate of hate on him, but I personally think the green lump gets a bit of a bad rep. I always found him to have a pretty decently useful and balanced moveset, and I honestly don't have much problem with the concept: he definetly looks like an 80s action figure in terms of the model, but given the concept, they could have just recycled everybody else's moves into him, but instead they took the time to make most of his animations unique, such that he is using everybody else's weapons, but with his own movements and mechanics that work well together, and I think it's worth recognizing that they didn't just take the easy route on that.

I didn't even know who Tifa was until the nerds spam my tl with her porn, I had to mute the word "Tifa" so I wouldn't have to see it. This is part of her sextape, there is nothing explicit, besides her speaking the sentence "..dick flattening". So if you're upset that I mentioned her 3 times to ridicule her, blame your own fandom.
PronHub Kappa.
I actually saw it on my tl, unfortunately..

I'm also that person who never played FFVII. Makes me feel somewhat special tho the truth of the matter is that living in the east block country I never got my hands on any Zelda game on my knock of NES and later on I was stuck with Sony all the time
Will give it a try one day tho

I wouldn't disagree at all here - my memory is kinda fuzzy when it comes to SCIV so I could actually change my mind if I got back to it some time cause the only thing I remember is Cassandra's booty and Rock's sexualpredatorface

I never play games in japanese if I can and damn - bullet dodged on this one. He sounds like some kind of Frieza minion
As for yoda - if one character requires to change animations of entire roster just for him than that is an awful idea for a character. I understand why they picked him but still - it would work only if they wanted to throw that much extra time and resources for him to work and as we all know - that ain't happening
As for Necrid I never hated the guy but I didn't played SC II (didn't owned console back then) so I can't say anything about him

I don't know where the meme was birthed, but I do know that before it that I saw a lot of people expressing their fetish for being dominated on with various memes such as Sigrun stomping on Kratos, Lenore making Hector her human pet and even the meme "Step on me daddy" because there are women who get off on being told what to do by an authoritarian man. You can even say Ivy has been thrown into the mix with her whip spanking move from Serpent Embrace floating around on the web.

Yeah but the specific phrase 'dick flattening' really feels like a new pace-setter for finding a way to be weird and unsexy even to most masochists, let alone people at large. And on top of that, I just don't get people who have to fetishize some mainstream work to the point of actually taking time to turn it into porn. It's just...you know the phrase "don't shit where you eat"? Well, how much more so "don't shit where we all eat"?

You don't know much about Japanese manga scene, do you Kappa?
No, I mean, if it starts out porn or porn-adjacent, then fair play, sexually fantasize about it all you (the general you, not you specifically) want--even to the point of creating something out of it...if you really can't stop yourself from making fanfics or porn...fine do your thing. But the farther away you get from a highly sexualized starting point, the less leeway you should allow yourself. What I'm saying is: most of us who have been on the internet a few decades now have been assaulted with unrequested Simpson's porn being shoved into our eyeballs non-consensually at least once in our lives. You can't unsee that shit and none of us should be in the position of having to try to.

I won't unsee. I'll never unsee. I can't unsee...

I wonder if corona is actually a ploy from Outworld to infiltrate us with half-Tarkatan hybrids, and every girl with a facemask could actually be a Mileena, waiting to chew off your face.

Nah, Lenore is something far worse, she's Hector's wife.
I don't know if it’s a joke or you’re serious..

You know that this ring is just to control Hector, he’s connected to Lenore, he isn't able to betray Carmilla and summon a army to defeat them, as long as the 4 sluts vampires wear the rings, they all have control over the creatures he forged.
I do not expect them to adapt the Curse of Darkness completely faithful, but I believe that next next season he will be able to get rid of Carmilla and start his redemption arc
