On the day of November 3rd, everyone’s favorite lasagna-eater decided to do something nobody would have ever expected him to do; Garfield dabbed on his haters!
“As we all know, Mondays are my haters; It made sense to dab on them,” Garfield explained in his signature thought bubbles. “What can I say? Fridays bring out the boogie in me.”
The only thing more shocking than the dabbing itself is the revelation that Garfield considers Fridays to be the opposite of Mondays: Does this mean that Fridays are the Anti-Mondays!? (Not that anyone disagrees with that… For many people, Friday is more or less the beginning of the weekend; Monday isn’t.)
When asked about what shocking and topical plans Garfield has planned next, the cat isn’t currently sure. Rumor has it that he might dab while using a fidget spinner, but only time will tell how Garfield will surprise and shock us again.
Hey buttbuddz fans today we are going to take a quick look at a video game, and boy is it a stinker. Yeah that’s right, we’re talking about Rise of the Tomb Raider.
When you think about great video games, you realize there are many things which can make for a great video game. Depth, challenge, charm, good story, level design, satsifying mechanics, sound design. We live in a world where games such as Age of Empires 2 and Doom are played for decades thanks to their great design and mechanics, and games like Half Life and Final Fantasy 6 are loved for their timeless stories, creativity and all that stuff.
However, today we are talking about Rise of the Tomb Raider. This game has a terrible story line which rips of Indiana Jones and 30s adventure movies, but changed the fun adventure and enjoyable characters to some trashy drama. The storyline is bad. The characters are cardboard, and we are presented to ancient tropes without any self awareness or interesting twists. This makes for an objectively boring storyline, and it doens’t help that the game tries to make you symphatize with Laura Croft by torturing her at every step. She is always being mauled by bears, hunted down by psychopaths and falling of cliffs. She probably can’t go to the store to buy bread and milk without stepping in a bear trap and falling off a cliff. In fact, bad things happen to her so much that I’m pretty sure the entire development team gets off to this, and that’s quite nasty I think.
Of course, a video game is about playing a fun game, and a good story is irrelevant as long as we got enjoyable gameplay mechanics, good level design and fun things to do. I am happy to report that Rise of the Tomb Raider doesn’t have any of this. The game might try to trick you into believing that theres a lot of options and paths to take, but the game is linear with a few side paths here and there which reward you with nonsensical bullshit. There is also uncharted-style climbing, which is like watching a lets play of Super Mario 64. You hold down W or something and spam space and there you go you are watching Laura Croft slowly climbing up a wall. This isn’t fun. The game is also a cover based third person shooter. I don’t think I need to say more here, because by definition cover based third person shooters aren’t fun. Linear games can work, but this sure as hell doesn’t. The boring shooting and the boring climbing and the boring paths to walk down makes it feel like you’re on the worlds boringest rollercoaster. The game likes to think it’s survival based too, but you aren’t surviving and barely getting by when you got a bunch of guns and perfect bow and arrow skills on the linear roller coaster.
I don’t want to write more about this game. It’s really bad, and is a good example on what video games shouldn’t be. Video games should be fun times where you explore interesting worlds, meet interesting characters and interact with fun mechanics as the game thinks up new ways to challenge your understanding of the mechanics. Rise of the Tomb Raider is just a crappy rollercoaster designed by a bunch of people who don’t like video games. And also I gotta say, this game is exactly the same as the last Tomb Raider. The story, the gameplay. Nothing has changed. It’s bad. Every time I try to do something fun the game punishes you. Avoid this game at all costs.
TOTAL SCORE: – A pretty bad game which gets 3 coke cans for being boring and terrible. I will spare it the remaining 2 because i guess its competently made. I will also add a single Pepsi can for the good looking environments. This is a very generous score, which I think Square Enix should be happy with.
What’s up Buttbuddz fans, today I will be reviewing this video game which I have not played and barely seen. But I can tell whether or not something’s good or not just by looking at it, so don’t worry about it! Now I’ve at least heard of this game before, apparently it was banned from Something Awful, which left me wondering if that was a good thing or a bad thing.
Now my first no-impression with this game was not a good one, because I saw it was an anime, easily identifiable by the characters’ anime designs and the very Japanese names. I found out it was not all like that however, and I will get to that soon.
You see it seems only a large minority of the game is an anime with the rest of it, seemingly intentionally, appealing to Buttbuddz audiences, which almost makes up for it being an anime. Luckily anime styled games are being replaced with classic western styled games as the rise of games like Bendy And The Ink Machine (which the buttbuddz did a review on please check it out) and Cuphead show. But I’m getting off-topic, and this is a subject for a future article.
You can tell at least one of the developers was displeased with the game’s anime direction, as the game contains great cartoon bears and references to Disney’s Toontown Online. Now you may not see the Toontown Online reference in this image, but according to legend the voice actor for this character who was a FISH in a past life also voiced Spike Spiegel in the kind-of-anime Cowboy Bebop, and Spike Spiegel is the name of Pickles The Random Toon’s toon. There is also an unconfirmed reference to the Bean Counter cog from Toontown Online, but it could also be a reference to actual bean counting.
So for my no-impressions review of Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony, I rate it
– 1 1/2 PEPSI CANS out of 5 – for great Buttbuddz references and not-anime things in an anime game, with the potential for more if I had any idea of what the gameplay was like
Hey Buttbuddz subscribers, we’ve got some great news for you today! Emoji movie fans will be excited to hear that The Emoji Movie 2 has finally been announced, under the title of The Emoji Movie 2: Attack of the Bitmoji. The BUTTBUDDZ BLOG has even gotten exclusive information on this new motion picture, which I’ll leave my thoughts on.
1. Six years after the first movie, the popularity of emojis have gone down and they must fight for relevance against bitmojis.
First off, great plot idea here as a fanatic of bitmojis (not nearly as much as emojis of course). I think this will lead to some interesting conflicts and confrontations. However, I do wonder where the protagonists from the first movie will fit in.
I mean, Gene’s obviously in it as we can see by this released concept art:
But what about Jailbreak? Hi-5? As much of a shoe-in as they seem to be, I feel like they should’ve been confirmed from the start if they were going to be there. Will Gene perhaps flip to the bitmojis which is why we have no art of other emoji characters? It’s entirely possible the movie will attempt to build a new cast of characters from scratch which, while questionable, could work out if they pull it off right. It’d also be a good excuse to touch upon the history of the bitmojis, since they were never mentioned in the first movie and that fact could potentially come off as a retcon to some.
And how about Alex, is he still here? It’s implied the movie will still take place inside his phone, but what role will he have? Will Addie make an appearance as well? It’ll have been six years after the first movie, so perhaps their relationship will have progressed since then?
2. There will be thought provoking statements and commentary on socialism vs. capitalism
This shouldn’t be much of a surprise seeing the bravery T.J. Miller had to incorporate themes like these into the first movie, but I think he did pick a particularly interesting topic in particular. You don’t see enough socialism vs. capitalism themes in movies, which is a shame because I think it’s a great topic to be putting in kids movies so they can make informed decisions later in life.
Socialism and capitalism are two different things, right? I’m theorizing that the emojis may represent socialism, with the bitmojis representing communism. It could potentially be vice versa, however, and we don’t really definitively know who the good and bad guys are. Maybe the emojis will revert to a primal, rampaging state due to their frustration of losing relevance and maybe the bitmojis will just be minding their own business only to be attacked. There’s plenty of possibilities that shouldn’t be counted out, because the rivalry could very well be a gray area.
3. Patrick Stewart will return to his role as Poop
That’s all we have for now. Hopefully we get more info soon, but in the meantime I’ll see you later, emoji fans.
Remember Game Review #1: Kirby: Squeak Squad, one of our first ever articles on the blog? Of course you don’t; The quality of articles didn’t get to “memorable” levels until about two days later. (So memorably, in fact, that we can still feel the waves of the Pretty Cure Content Flood of Summer 2017 to this day; At this point, we might as well give Cure Marine her own pillar/merge it with the Sailor Moon one…)
So what separates that simple, humble review of a Kirby game from our many great articles after it? Well, what if we told you it was an awkward, early article that suffered from being rushed? Sure, the game-play part of the review turned out okay, but the critical research failures within the review were about the game’s LORE.
Yeah, that’s right; Kirby: Squeak Squad‘s lore is a lot deeper than it looks, and -like the original article mentions- is not very noticeable in the game, for you see… Everything’s actually in Squeak Squad‘s manga adaptation!
First off, the manga goes over time and time again that Kirby is not evil. For example, -rather than being up everyone over cake- here’s Kirby spreading the wealth of Maxim Tomatoes and Invincible Candies with Dreamland’s residents, making every man a king comparable to the likes of Dedede in the process.
Speaking of King Dedede, Kirby also offers the great king parts of the plot’s strawberry shortcake if he helps look for it; Kirby sure is a straight up honest guy!
For a game commonly nicknamed “Kirby’s Fucking Pissed”, the manga is somehow a lot calmer; Even the “treasure chest that contains the cake/villain” part of the plot is more sugary-sweet than what one would’ve seen in the game!
Of course, we know what you’re really here for; RATS. Don’t worry, they make plenty of appearances throughout the manga adaptation of the game they star in.
Even Kirby himself liked Squeak Squad’s very own rat clan enough to try and join them at one point in the manga!
There still might not be any Escargoon in the game’s manga, but to say that Kirby: Squeak Squad doesn’t have a lot of lore for a Kirby title is simply a mistake; Squeak Squad has as much of a story as any other title, you just have to know where to look for it!

For as long as there’s been SpeedChat Plus, there’s been Toon Valley. Despite having gone through many names over the years, it’s become an infamous staple of Toontown Online; Whether one has always known it as Nutty River, or Vibrant Valley, everyone can always agree that it’s almost like a state of mind among the game’s player base.
However, with Toontown Rewritten‘s newest 2.0.0 update and the game finally leaving beta, one of the many changes the team made to current build of their Toontown remake was renaming all of the districts again. What was wrong with names like Colorful Canvas, Stencil Steppe, and Acrylic Acres? Those were perfectly fine district names!
A hopefully-intended side effect of renaming the districts was getting rid of the Vibrant Valley residents; Well, it worked. Sort of. They got rid of Vibrant Valley, but they couldn’t get rid of the Vibrant Valley; It’s just been displaced from its home-district once again, now wandering around from Blam Canyon to Zoink Falls in search of its new namesake and home.
So what’s Toon Valley’s latest incarnation then? Problem is, it’s a lot tougher than normal to find out, as its former populous is currently split up among Toontown’s many districts. Just as quickly as they’ve been displaced, though, they’ve just as quickly narrowed their choices down for their newest home.
First off, they’re not gonna pick a SpeedChat-only district; That would completely defeat the point of being Toon Valley. After all, one can’t make clans or invite people to one’s lousy game show with the default SpeedChat. This means that we know for certain it’s not Boingbury, Gulp Gulch, or Whoosh Rapids; You can’t become Toon Valley if you don’t have the chat system needed for Toon Valley to begin with!
Another clue to figuring out which district would be the newest incarnation of Toon Valley is its color: Blue districts are barren worlds, free from the influence of the Valley, and -luckily for us- make up the majority of the districts. (Because how many people are on Toontown at any given moment, really… Maybe a few thousand at most?)
…As for the one red district that always seems to show up in game, well… There’s a reason it’s considered “full”; It’s currently being used as Toon Valley! Think of as the game doing you a favor by not letting you into, for an example based on the screencap below, Bounceboro, at that very moment.
Another thing to keep in mind is what time you’re playing the game as well; If it’s too early in the morning or too late at night, not a lot of people are going to be online, and as a result, it would be harder for Toon Valley to keep a stable hold on a district; At worst, maybe you’ll just find a small pack of brutes, but you WON’T be finding any massive brute-conventions that end up covering most of Toontown Central.
If -for some unknown reason- you actually want to go to Toon Valley, the afternoon and evening would be your best bets on finding its newest host district. (Do keep in mind that both the game, AND this article are following American time zones, so going in the afternoon/evening might not work for everyone, everywhere.)
With all of that said, you have successfully found the newest incarnation of Toon Valley! …Or, at least in theory, you would have found it; The real question is whether or not it holds up in practice. Yeah, that’s right; We’re gonna go to Toon Valley!
…Oh god, we’re gonna go to Toon Valley.
For our mission, we’re gonna be sending a RAT, a protector of Toontown Central’s streets, to the newest incarnation of Toon Valley.
You see, Rat Jack is already experienced in dealing with Vibrant Toons; He and his boss, Giant Rat, have encountered cats, and even a hacker before! If Jack’s dealt with some of the worst Vibrant Valley had to offer, then surely he can navigate his way through its newest incarnation, right?
…Wait, what do you mean that Bounceboro’s TTC, the only red district in the game at the time, was completely barren!?
We sent another one of our toons, Peony, to the other playgrounds that Rat Jack was unable to cover, and as it turns out… The reason Bounceboro’s been red all day was because of a an all-day beanfest located in Donald’s Dreamland!?
But when all hope seemed lost, it turns out that Toon Valley was in actually Thwackville (a green district) at the time! Rat Jack couldn’t believe it; the Vibrant Valley he knew before was still alive. Perhaps not as alive as it once was, but it certainly was alive.
When Rat Jack returned to the Buttbuddz HQ a second time, he did mention that Thwackville/Vibrant Valley was a little calmer than it would’ve usually been, which he found kind of odd. However, -as mentioned earlier in this article- the removal of the Vibrant Valley district had been causing more than a few issues for its residents. Or perhaps, maybe Rat Jack just showed up during a calmer moment for the reconstructing community, and it was/became FUCKING TERRIBLE before/after his brief visit to the district.
This article, though, is about proving Toon Valley still exists, not about the Toon Valley experience itself. If you’re reading this article, you’re already likely familiar with what the district in its many forms -including its currently-nomadic one- is like; We don’t need to, or even WANT to go over it again.
In conclusion, you can take Vibrant Valley district out of Toontown, but you can’t truly take the Vibrant out of the Valley. Now whether or not Vibrant’s toons will stick with Thwackville, or eventually settle onto another district, only time can answer that… In the meantime though, be careful when going into red and green districts, especially if you’re located in Toontown Central; You’ll never be able to truly know if the district you’re moving to is actually just Toon Valley!

Cboyardee, also known as Chef Boyardee. A name not often heard today, but back in the day he was known as memelord 1#. In fact, the modern internet has a lot to owe to this man, shrek memes, MS Paint videos and great video games. Let’s take a closer look.
First, let’s take a look at Cboyardees most popular, but not most influencal work, Dilbert 2. It’s MS-Paint aesthetics are known across the world for it’s quality and artsyness, and the video remains popular despite Cboyardees original channel being deleted by YouBrute. Despite being a popular video, it hasn’t influenced the world as much as it’s sequel, Dilbert 3.
You see, Dilbert 3 introduced the world to robocop.mp3, a remix of the theme song for Robocop for the commodore 64 or something. This great remix would rather become the theme song for clowns in Space Station 13.
Yeah that’s right, without Cboyardee we wouldn’t have this most excellent tune.
And while you see, the Dilbert videos are popular and well known, Cboyardee has done a lot more for the internet, too much for one article, so I am going to mention two more groundbreaking achievements of his.
Cboyardee invented Shrek memes. Yeah that’s right, long before “Shrek is love, Shrek is life”, Cboyardee created the classic “Shrek is NOT Drek” video, and also a daily series of Shrek themed jokes and even a let’s play of Shrek on the GBA. So if you enjoy Shrek related memes, remember to thank Cboyardee.
But now my good friends, we will look at Cboyardee‘s greatest achivement. A complete, classic vidcon enjoyed by childs all over the world. I am of course talking about the everylasting classic of vidcon, it is BARKLEY SHUT UP AND JAM GAIDEN!
Yeah that’s right, Cboyardee was one of the devs and also the composer of this classic vidcon. If that doesn’t make you an important man on the internet, then I don’t know what will. And despite the fact his YouTube was purged long ago, you can still find Cboyardee hidden on the internet, working on Barkley 2 which will come out in the year 20XX, and you’re very exited for it.
But now I have to go, I have some b-ballin’ to do. I am very grateful to live in a world where b-ball isn’t outlawed, so byebye.
Contrary to popular belief, the ButtBuddz is not actually a weeaboo establishment; For as much as we write about, say, Hidamari Sketch, we also like western stuff such as Swing You Sinners! as well. Anime (and by extension, anime styled video games) is only one piece in the pie that is “Stuff the Buttbuddz Like”, and a fairly small piece at that.
First off is the What Japan Thinkschart/poll mentioned in the original article; Luckily for everyone here, What Japan Thinks is a very good source. In fact, it’s such a good source that it even mentioned its sampling of the population and the statistics involved!
“Between the 29th of August and the 1st of September 2008 464 members of the CLUB BBQ free email forwarding service completed a private online survey.”
For reference, the amount of people who live in Japan is about 127 million people. The poll only represents the opinions of a mere 0.000003% of the country’s population. How can one say that it represents Japan’s opinion on Pepsi as a whole? Even if turns out that there aren’t a lot of Pepsi drinkers in Japan, Pepsi still makes non-anime-related efforts for their market such as their beloved mascot Pepsi Man, and all sorts of fun, Japan-exclusive flavors such as Pepsi Sakura, Pepsi Salty Watermelon, Pepsi Blue Hawaii, and Pepsi Mont Blanc, among many others.
This leads into our next topic; Pepsi’s advertisement in the anime Tiger & Bunny. First off, judging an anime (or any piece of media, for that matter) by its name is like judging a book by its cover; It’s not an accurate way to tell if the show is good or not.
Rather than talking about the title, let’s get onto the show itself; The lady featured in the advertisement, Blue Rose, is actually sponsored by Pepsi for the entire anime. She’s also a superhero, so she’s basically the anime equivalent of Pepsi Man.
While I haven’t actually seen Tiger & Bunny either, if we calculate the review scores to get an mean-average score for the show, it’s apparently as good as Batman Begins. (Or at least Rotten Tomatoes and IMBd’s opinion on the film.) This proves that Pepsi only approves the finest productions for its sponsorships. If you want to see what a truly BADsponsorship looks like, perhaps we should have a look at the works of Pepsi’s rival company, and the drink of brutes everywhere, Coca Cola.
CASE STUDY: MAC AND ME.
While Coca Cola brags that it’s appeared in many, many famous films over the years, the first film that comes to the mind of the average person is the 1983 film, Mac and Me. To say that Coca Cola sponsored it would be a severe understatement; It’s Coke in film form!
The film is about aliens that require Coca Cola to survive. While the plot of the film is basically E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, you would never be able to tell due to the sheer amount of Coca Cola and McDonald’s product placement in the film. (Did I mention that the film really likes Coca Cola?)
There isn’t a lot more to say about Mac and Me, so we’ll be moving onto the next topic: Western Animation. I will give “Why anime is Anti-Pepsi” some credit here with its Spongebob Squarepants screenshot that points out that the show is pro-Pepsi; It’s the most compelling argument in the article, and provides actual evidence for its claims in the form of the screenshot itself. (Although Spongebob being pro-fish shouldn’t come to as a surprise to anyone, seeing as it’s located under the sea to begin with.)
Clearly, while Spongebob and every other fish-related cartoon are pro-Pepsi/pro-fish and therefore good, does it hold up for the rest of the western animation? I’m sure the “patriots” at Hanna-Barbera would like to disagree with you.
If that’s not an excuse to bring our scooby_doo_desecration channel back, I don’t know what is, and yetanime‘s supposedly the anti-Pepsi one… As far as finding pro-Coke stuff for both types of animation went, (not counting fan-made videos for either, because there were A LOT of those; the same thing applies with pro-Pepsi videos, too) they actually had about the same amount of Coca Cola sponsored content; It doesn’t matter if you’re The Simpsonsor One Piece, you’re still not immune to being an advertisement for Coke.
Ultimately, anime is just as capable of being pro-Pepsi as any western medium can be. Likewise, western media is still capable of being pro-Coca Cola and unpatriotic. Anime is still part of Pepsi, and by extension, the Buttbuddz; Whether you love it, or hate it, it’s here to stay.
If you’re not into anime though, there’s still plenty of other content to enjoy here at the Buttbuddz. (Although I’d suggest checking out our YouTube channel instead, as it’s more balanced content-wise than Butt with a Blog currently is; The last few articles haven’t been helping with the over-abundance of anime on the blog at all.)

Hello Pepsi fans, welcome to another great and informative Buttbuddz article. Now you may have gotten the impression one way or another that the Buttbuddz is some kind of weeaboo establishment, but that is quite the opposite of the truth. Today I will be exposing anime as Anti-Pepsi, and thus Anti-Buttbuddz.
First, here’s an enlightening chart from whatjapanthinks.com, which I’m sure is a very reliable source for information about Japan, so what I’m about to show you is genuine.
As you can see a majority of Japs are COKE DRINKERS with only 16% drinking Pepsi, and I’m pretty sure there are more Pepsi drinkers even in Georgia than 16%.
That’s quite an unfortunate statistic for anime, but you may say to yourself “well i watched the buttbuddz top 10 anime part 2 and it says tiger & bunny is sponsored by pepsi”, which is true, but you may also recall that video noted that Tiger & Bunny is a terrible name for an anime, which probably means it’s a terrible anime.
Now why would a terrible anime have Pepsi in it? Simple: this anime is trying to ruin the reputation of Pepsi. That’s right, the weebs are using the good name of Pepsi and attempting to twist it into something much darker.
Hearing this information may have put a damper on your mood as you think “has anime contained subliminal messages for coca cola this entire time?”, now that I’m not sure of but I think for reasons I am about to explain western cartoons are actually the best alternative to anime for both Pepsi drinkers and fish supporters.
This snapshot from a season 2 episode of Spongebob Squarepants holds a very noticeable Pepsi logo which has a wave on it since this is the version of Pepsi that is served to fish. As we know, there are many great cartoons which feature fish, as is proven in the Top 10 Animated Fish Buttbuddz video. If that’s not proof that cartoons are sponsored by Pepsi, I don’t know what is.
In conclusion: Anime is very Anti-American and Anti-Pepsi, where western animation is very patriotic and supports fish and Pepsi.
