Alright! So we had TWO new episodes today. I think I’ll have to watch them again before I get a really good opinion on them, but I’ll just post my thoughts right now. Spoilers ahead.
ARGGH! You For Real
Well I’ll say that I called it, I had a feeling that they were going to discover that ARGGH is fake. Lincoln and Clyde are so cute, and their friendship gives me life.
A unexpected appearance from Harold and Howard! Poor Howard too, he didn’t like seeing Clyde like that. So Clyde is so devastated by his favorite show being fake, that he starts thinking EVERYTHING is fake. He even starts disobeying his parents because he thinks nothing will happen.
I kinda hate it that Lincoln lied to Clyde again just to make him happy, but it turns out that there was a real ghost so I guess it wasn’t totally a lie?
Ah yes a Lori episode. I enjoyed it. It was really relatable to those of us who have annoying siblings. Again, this was another one where Lincoln wasn’t the main focus. He was barely even in it.
So we see Lori being annoyed by her younger siblings. Lana kicking her in the face while she sleeps, Lola answering her phone, Leni interrupting her phone calls, etc. She decides that since she’s almost 18, that it’s time to move out on her own, even if it’s only 20 feet from the house.
She discovers that living on your own isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and she misses her siblings. We see just how much she does for them because it’s hard for them to get along without her. Lola has tangles in her hair, and wants Lori to help her. Instead though, Lisa sprays it with her new “detangler” and her hair falls out.
Luna’s fog machine melts Mr Coconut’s face and she and Luan start arguing. They ask Lincoln to help resolve the matter, but his solution leads to almost getting punched in the face by Luna. He says “I wish Lori was here”.
Lori eventually moved back into the house. Oh and we find out that Lisa took out Lincoln’s appendix. Yikes.
I was in a decrepit neighborhood – rotting porches, peeling paint, Spanish moss hanging off dormers, the works. Mist swirled around my ankles as I walked slowly through the streets. Like an old video game, the horizon was both unchanging and unreachable.
I wandered around, in and out of the cobwebby houses. Although the streets were empty, the houses usually had a few ghosts floating around. There were a few children, but they were mostly old people, in various stages of decay. They never hurt me, nor did they speak. They just floated. Sometimes they’d follow me, but I never felt threatened.
So remember during the Switch Presentation when it was first announced we saw Bowser step on Mario’s hat?
So I was watching the Mario trailer today for E3 and noticed something when they were in the “intro” level I can assume.
That looks like the gates to a cemetery right? Like a little bit, because it’s all dark, dreary, and spooky. THEN I REALIZED WHAT CAPPY’S NORMAL FORM LOOKS LIKE.
HE LOOKS LIKE A GHOST, AND THEN HE PROCEEDS TO TURN INTO MARIO’S HAT. WHICH LOOKED DESTROYED BEFOREHAND.
SO BASICALLY, MARIO WAS SO SAD HIS HAT FUCKING DIED.THAT HE WAS ABOUT TO BURY IT AT A HAT CEMETERY. CAPPY DECIDED “MAN I DON’T FIT ON YOUR HEAD, LETS JUST FIX YOUR HAT UP” AND NOW MARIO HAS A HAT BUDDY TO BEAT BOWSER’S SHIT IN.
As much fun as people have talking about Danny getting the crap beaten out of him and hiding bruises and injuries, I’m not certain ghosts CAN be traditionally injured? At least in the context I’ve built up for Ghost Physics… Like, Danny is essentially injuring himself whenever he rips his face in half to dodge something, or when he forms a spectral tail. If you can atomize and reform your body with no consequence, then physical damage is almost meaningless.
Ghosts are very defined by self perception, so most can be convinced into thinking they’re physically injured and experience pain from it, but the only surefire way to hurt one is by targeting their ectosignature nervous system. Energy attacks seem to be most effective, maybe because the energy can travel through a ghost’s 4D connection to the GZ and stun their nervous system? Disrupting the 4D connection would also work well as a non-physical attack, or on the same note “hijacking” a ghost’s body by overriding the signal from their ectosignature and telling the mass to do something else (probably how the Fenton Thermos works)
Danny definitely gets bruises and injuries in human form, mostly from bullying, I’d imagine… I’m not sure if they’d heal at an accelerated rate on their own, but turning into Phantom or atomizing and reforming his human body could heal them instantly as well, so… Danny is terrifyingly unkillable? The most damage he’s gonna sustain from ghost battles is sleep deprivation and uhhhhhh probably PTSD
