    @Slide 2: I always thought Sakura would be good with Dan. Maybe not in a lovey dovey kind of relationship, but more like... Well, nevermind... @Slide 3: I have a soft spot for romantic interests who can be considered the "underdog" in their quest for love, so I quietly cheer Amy on from the sidelines. Even if she is kind of an annoying character in the games... @Slide 5: Oh come on! Fucking spoilers!!! Travis Touchdown and Shinobu would be a good addition to this list.

    As far as Dan goes, Sakura is like Blanka to him. He cares more for his Saikyo style, and i like how both Sakura and Blanka genuinely care for the guy with their SFXT story
  • Frieza - February 10, 2014 10:26 p.m.

    I think Dan holds Blanka closer to his heart than he does Sakura, and maybe even his Saikyo style. The two have been through so much together and, while it isn't shown very well in the games, have a very close relationship. I think that if Dan had to choose between Blanka and his dojo, he would choose Blanka. I could be wrong, but Dan just doesn't seem like the guy to put his dreams and goals over his friends (especially Blanka), despite how devoted he is to his dreams. The interesting thing about Sakura is that, at the beginning of her appearance, it was very obvious she was just using him to get to Ryu, and the Teacher-Student relationship they had was completely one sided on Dan's part. And while I agree with you that Sakura does care for him to some degree (even though it was most clearly shown in a non-canon game), it really isn't shown very well in the SF games. Although it's blatantly obvious she doesn't respect him.

    Yeah your right, if anything Dan still loves Jimmy a lot. Though it is pointed out many times how much everyone else is aware of Dan's shit status, ala his story excuse as to why he wasnt in SF2 because "You didnt pay the electric bill to recieve a call". If were talking uncanon wise, that gem fighter game had Sakura learn from Dan but ditched him when learning it sucks.

    Gordon Freeman is supposedly born between 1973 and 1982, based on the extended story line. That would make him between 32 and 41. However he spent 20 years in stasis following the Black Mesa incident, which happened when Alyx was a child. 20 years later, the two met, and while there is a temporal age different, physically they're the same age.
  • Rotator - February 10, 2014 5:18 p.m.

    I meant difference, of course, not different... Duh :D
  • Earthbound_X - February 10, 2014 6:13 p.m.

    Is there really an age gap for Gordon and Alyx? He was 28 in Half-Life, and he was put in stasis, so I'd have to assumed he's the same age in Half-Life 2 as well. Alyx couldn't have been but a few years younger then him.
  • Earthbound_X - February 10, 2014 6:15 p.m.

    Bah I meant to post this as it's own comment. Gordon is listed as 28 in the HL opening.

    Mario Sunshine was already cringe-worthy with the Bowser Jr. "Peach is my Mama" Boogaloo

    Why does everybody go on about this thing? Is it because they never finished the game? In the end, after the credits roll (or before the credits... Idk, somewhere around the credits) there's a scene between Bowser and his son looking forlornly at the island in the distance, as they drift away from it, defeated. Bowser says: "Son, there's something... difficult I have to tell you about Princess Peach-" To which he replies; "I know she's really not my momma," Jr. continues by saying: "But someday, when I'm older..." (he turns to his father...) "I wanna get that Mario again." Bowser bursts: "Ha Ha! That's my boy! But for now, let's just rest awhile..." It's really short, but it's honestly quite a touching scene between the two, that in a matter of seconds reinforces the entire father-son relationship between Bowser and Bowser Jr., painting Jr. as not simply yet another arbitrary boneheaded tool (though, yes, both of them can be described as such... boneheads and tools) for use in his father's plans, but as an actual son-like entity in Bowser's life. All that aside, it still leaves the loose end of who or what really is Jr.'s mother... which I don't think we'll ever know... honestly, my money's on asexual reproduction. The only examples of female Koopas I've seen are in the Paper Mario series (one of your sidekicks, Kooper, has a mother and girlfriend) and Bowser's token daughter. Female Koopas in Paper Mario could simply be a result of that whole thing being a spinoff, whilst Bowser's token daughter could really just be a boy in drag. Honestly, the whole Koopa line could be a matter of, like... you know how seahorses reproduce? They change genders while the eggs are inside of them. Or, more in line with other reptilian species in the Mushroom Kingdom... the Yoshis... maybe Koopas reproduce in the same nonsensical way (by ingesting anomalous food matter and transforming it into an egg through some heretofore unknown miraculous gastro-intestinal reproductive magic). Honestly, I guess it makes just about as much sense as a lot of other things in the Mushroom Kingdom... like, mushroom people? Seriously? Fungus with arms and legs. The question of their reproductive process is just another thing entirely (spores, people. Spores in dank, wet, moldy places should not beings with eyes, mouths and limbs make. That's the stuff of nightmares, yo). //end overlong rambling comment :)

    Oh no i know that it ends like that, and i know everything about the game and love the game. The thought and reveal of Bowser Jr was just such a throw off the first time you see it.
  • Rub3z - February 11, 2014 7:57 p.m.

    It was, yes. But then I thought about it for a second and I realized; "Nah, that's BS. How the hell did Peach push that thing out of her body? There's no way." Just thinking about it beyond that, though, is shudder-inducing. There's probably all kinds of Rule #34 on that by now... yecchhhhhh...

    Pfft, Kate? I never hung out with that bitch, not even once. I was just glad she got shot instead of Roman, which I found out about on a different save.
  • Forsakenday - February 10, 2014 2:19 p.m.

    What about Ezio and Cristina in the AC series?
  • g1rldraco7 - February 10, 2014 1:06 p.m.

    Bowser and Peach would be crossing bestiality to a whole new level.
  • shawksta - February 10, 2014 3:58 p.m.

    Sonic 06 already made the scar.
