    About


    Freedom Planet [1] is a two-dimensional platform video game created by independent developer GalaxyTrail [2], a studio set up for the project by designer Stephen DiDuro. The player controls one of three anthropomorphic animal protagonists: the dragon Lilac, the wildcat Carol, or the basset hound Milla. Aided by the duck-like Torque, the player attempts to defeat the evil Lord Brevon, who plans to conquer the galaxy. While the game focuses on fast-paced platforming, its levels are interspersed with slower action scenes.

    *


    History


    Freedom Planet was made by American game designer and programmer Stephen DiDuro, who founded GalaxyTrail to create the project. The soundtrack was composed by DiDuro in collaboration with user Blue Warrior of VGMusic.com and user Woofle from Fur Affinity. Although it is an original intellectual property, Freedom Planet was first developed as a Sonic fangame. DiDuro then decided that the Sonic affiliation would hold back the game. He received permission from the Chinese artist Ziyo Ling--whom he had found on the art website DeviantArt--to use her characters Lilac, Carol, and Milla in his game.

    The gameplay shares similarities to Sonic, Ristar [3], Gunstar Heroes [4] and Rocket Knight [5]. Viewers of early footage from the developing product encouraged DiDuro to separate it further from Sonic, so he replaced rings with red leaves and altered the characters’ abilities. Ziyo had drawn Lilac as a hedgehog, but DiDuro redesigned the character to be a dragon.



    Reception


    Overall reception was positive [6]. Most critics compared it favorably to the original Sonic games of the Genesis era in terms of speed and gameplay, although they also pointed out the differences between them, with its metroidvania style levels and combat. The story gathered more of a mixed reception, some praising it for its cheesiness and outright dark moments in the story (for E10 game), while other condemned it for its pacing issues.



    Fandom[7]


    Contrary to Shovel Knight [8], which is a spiritual successor of several NES games, Freedom Planet is a spiritual successor of Sega Genesis games; as such, it has gathered a following of oldschool gamers who grew up with the system. The most noticeable influence, besides Sonic, is anime.

    The best modern Sonic game

    Due to its visuals, gameplay and original idea of the game, it is commonly known (either as a form of respect for the old games, or an insult to a few of the new ones [9][10] and Sega as a whole) as the best modern Sonic game, if not an actual sequel to the originals.

    Happy Merchant refers to a cartoon caricature of a Jewish man that is popular as an exploitable and reaction image, particularly on /pol/, where it is frequently used to insulting imply the relevancy of Jews to a particular discussion, or to criticize or dismiss others as being scheming, untrustworthy, or greedy.

    Doom Paul refers to images of the American politician and physician Ron Paul photoshopped into alarming or even apocalyptic settings, usually with the accompanying phrase “It’s Happening”.



    Into The Trash It Goes

    Into The Trash It Goes, also known as Opinion Discarded, is a popular remark on /pol/ used to dismiss people who are perceived to have said or done something grievously damaging to their credibility. It is typically paired with images of Penn Jillette with a disdainful look on his face.

  • About

    /b/ is an image board on 4chan. Being amongst the original boards created for the site, dedicated to be a random board for nearly any type of content, over time the board grew to become inarguably the most infamous 4chan board on both the site itself and outside of it. The board’s users are commonly referred to as /b/tards.

    History

    /b/[1] (Random) was the first board created for 4chan.[2] Being a board in which the focus lies with random content, the board quickly became a common source of spam, trolling, and shitposting. In combination with 4chan’s minimal board rules, pornography and gore threads could also be frequently found on the board.

    Board Culture & Reputation

    /b/ quickly managed to become the site’s most famous and infamous board. Due to its minimal rules, initally only placing bans on illegal content such as child pornography and requiring its users to be above 18, the board grew to become by far 4chan’s most popular board with over 30% of the site’s traffic in early 2009[3] out of the 44 image boards at the time. The content found on the board due to its minimal rules resulted often included gore and shock media, gaining the board a reputation of being a place to avoid for outsiders to whom the board is incomprehensible.



    Do Not Talk About /b/

    The Rules of the Internet is a list of protocols and conventions to serve as a summation of popular catchphrases and axioms commonly associated with 4chan. Since there are numerous drafts and editions in circulation, the rules fluctuate in number and the validity of each rule remains debatable. Despite this, several of the rules are agreed upon across internet communities. These include rule 1 & 2, which both read “Do not talk about /b/.”


    Rule 1. Do not talk about /b/.
    Rule 2. Do NOT talk about /b/.

    GET& Dubs

    GETrefers to a randomly generated event on 4chan that is noted when a post’s unique ID number consists of rare integer sequences, most notably similar ending numbers. Attempting to get a GET became especially popular on /b/, to the point where users would make a post ending in two similar digits (dubs) or more decide forum game outcomes and even meme status. In early February 2010, the site’s admin, moot, made dubs temporary unavailable due to the spam they caused (shown below).[4] Over time the option has been reenabled and disabled multiple times.



    Milhouse Is Not A Meme

    “Milhouse Is Not A Meme”is a paradoxical statement and a well-known debate on the imageboard site 4chan about what makes an internet meme and what doesn’t, using The Simpsons character Milhouse Van Houten as an example. The origin of this phrase dates back to /b/, where user attempts to make Milhouse a meme ricocheted and turned the phrase denying Milhouse’s meme status into a meme.



    Queen of /b/

    Queen of /b/ is a nickname given by /b/ users to Catie Wayne, who is better known by her online pseudonym Boxxy. First appearing on video in 2009, Boxxy received mixed feedback on /b/, becoming a popular form of trolling and the center of multiple shitstorms on the board.



    Pool’s Closed

    Pool’s Closedis a catchphrase associated with a series of raids carried out by /b/ on the online social networking site Habbo Hotel in 2006, where members of the group formed human blockades to obstruct the entry points of popular hangouts with their dark-skinned avatars dressed in afros and business suits.

The article included an embed of a YouTube video showing footage of the incident (shown below).Within eight days, the video received more than 770,000 views and 1,300 comments.

    About

    Captain Falcon is the main protagonist of the racing video game franchise F-Zero. Known as the mascot of the F-Zero franchise, he is more commonly known for his presence in the video game fighting franchise Super Smash Bros.

    Origin

    The first addition to the F-Zero franchise was released in Japan for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System on November 21st, 1990. This game marks the debut of Captain Falcon, who is mostly accommodated by his racing vehicle, the Blue Falcon. Inspired by the Formula One races, Nintendo envisioned Captain Falcon as the flagship character of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, however the plan never was carried out, due to Captain Falcon rarely making appearances across Nintendo media. In F-Zero, Captain Falcon is one of the best racers in the circuit and is a relentless bounty hunter.

    Spread

    On July 14th, 1998, F-Zero X was released onto the then new Nintendo 64 in Japan. Only a year later, the fighting video game Super Smash Brothers was released on the Nintendo 64 and included Captain Falcon as a playable character, although locked upon startup. In 2001, Super Smash Bros. Melee introduced Captain Falcon as a playable character upon startup for the first time, along with Ness, the posterchild of the Earthbound franchise. On July 25th, 2003, F-Zero GX was released onto the Nintendo GameCube in Japan, ironically developed by rival company _SEGA_’s Amusement Vision department. In 2008, Captain Falcon became a playable character again in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Unlike Melee, however, he is locked on startup once again. Since F-Zero Climax was exclusively released in Japan on October 21st, 2004, the F-Zero franchise has been on hiatus.

  • 03/15/15--15:44: Stop it, Boner
  • About

    Stop It, Boner is a picture of a character having an unwanted erection. It has become a staple of reaction image when being confronted to any material that could provoke the weirdest boner.

    Origin

    The initial image comes from a 2-panes comic made by an anonymous user and featuring a man looking in dismay at his computer screen before turning away, revealing he has an unwanted erection (shown below, left). While there is no precise archived mention of its first appearance, its earliest recorded use was found in a 4chan’s /tg/ (Traditional Games) thread about tabletop games, in a post made on February 15th 2011[1] reacting to another poster talking about kobold porn. Then, as early as June 8th 2011, a cut version of the second panel with the character saying “Stop it, boner” to which the bulge in his pants retorts “no”(shown below, right) was posted in another /tg/ thread[2].



    Precursor: “why, boner?”

    As a similar note, two other pictures on the same theme have been circulating as reaction images on imageboards in order to describe this feeling of unwanted arousal towards questionable material. The first one is a drawing of a man’s lower half sitting on a chair with an apparent bulge[3] (shown below, left) posted as early as February 7th 2011 and the other, a 2-panes image of a stick figures looking at a computer screen in disbelief[4], posted as early as March 24th 2011 (shown below, right). Both displayed the phrase “Why, Boner?”, that has been defined on Urban Dictionary on April 22nd 2011 as “getting a boner for some reason you can’t explain; getting a boner when you consciously know you shouldn’t be having one. (see: should not want)”[5].



    Spread

    Although the initial blank 2-pane comic continued to be reused as a reaction image of its own, as it was the case in the comment section of the “Oh No They Didn’t” Livejournal for example[6], the cut version became reposted on various websites such as Funny Junk as early as August 18th 2011[7] where several parodies were made, the Cheezburger“Dating Fails” section[8] or even TVTropes, as an online example referencing the “Strangely Arousing” trope[9].

    About

    /mlp/ is the main board on 4chan for discussions related to the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic television show and franchise. Along with Equestria Daily, it is one of the largest pony-related social hubs for “bronies”, adult fans of the show, on the internet.

    History

    The board was created in 2012[2] in order to provide a contained location for 4chan’s growing brony populace to converse over their shared interest in the franchise. The decision to create /mlp/ was heavily influenced by a strong upwards trend of pony-related threads and posts on multiple boards, especially /co/ and /b/ (illustrated on graph below).
