We got a glimpse from the spray but holy shit Kabuki Hanzo look incredible. Just another example of how much better Blizz has gotten at making their Legendary skins.




Also his ult sound better have that famous kabuki shout:

Posted by Shradow on 17 January 2018 - 06:25 PM




Earlier Nintendo teased something "crafted for kids and those who are kids at heart" and have now announced this. I can't say it's not interesting, it's actually pretty neat, but it seems a bit damageable (cardboard can be quite sturdy though so it just depends on how well this stuff is put together). The Project Giant Robot-esque thing definitely caught my eye, at the very least.


EDIT: Honestly I'm starting to get really excited about this. I think I'll probably end up getting the robot one. I'll put on the silly cardboard suit and punch stuff as an awesome giant robot.

Oh and I guess there's Micaiah, Sothe, and Zelgius, too. Here's everyone's datamined stats:


#7064446 Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi

Posted by Shradow on 26 December 2017 - 09:13 PM

I thought the movie was quite awesome.


I think that's more or less everything. I understand them being safe with Episode VII after how the prequels wend down, and I enjoyed the direction they went with this one. It's definitely one of my favorites, alongside Episode V, VI, and Rogue One.



A couple more points.


Also, I like how porgs are a thing because the island they used for Luke's island is a wildlife preserve full of puffins, and they couldn't physically get rid of them. So it was easier to edit them into porgs than to digitially remove them. They're cute af.

Chapter 6 of the FEH manga is out:



Draug is one of my favorite units so I really liked this chapter.

#7061306 Avengers: Infinity War

Posted by Shradow on 12 December 2017 - 03:48 AM

Kinda crazy how far the MCU has come and how hugely successful it's been. I recently rewatched Iron Man, the movie that kicked everything off, and it's strange to think about the origin of something like the MCU. I've never been a huge comic reader so I think the only reason I even knew who Iron Man was was because of the Marvel: Ultimate Alliance game I played as a kid. By that time Marvel had licensed off their really big stuff like Spider-Man and the X-Men, and when they were coming out with Iron Man I don't even remember what sort of expectations I had for it, if I had any. I'm sure to a lot of people he was just a B-list superhero, but now look at him. To think he might be gone soon after all this Infinity War business is over.

There's just so many characters in this series, not everyone can get the same amount of development. I mean, look at the Sugar Rush guy (whose name I can't even remember), he's had pretty much nothing going for him over the course of the series, but I still loved his interactions this past chapter trying to make his friends feel better and literally shoving cake into Deku's mouth. Overall the dorm interactions this past chapter were all great, like the small bit between Kirishima and Mina, Kaminari calling Bakugou Kacchan (I forget if he'd been doing that before), the characters have good dynamics between each other. Plus you saw the students who were at the raid (Kirishima, Tsuyu, Uraraka, Deku) think back on it with those panels of them in bed (I especially liked Uraraka's change this chapter, where she stated she wanted to save people as opposed to before where she said she became a hero to make money) and I liked that they had a shared moment even when they weren't interacting with one another.


I saw a good post on reddit about something the series does well, and it's that it has a power ceiling. All Might's the best in the world and far and away stronger than any other hero. Deku will build upon that a bit because of OFA, of course, but this series won't be like other shonen where powers just keep increasing as more powerful villains appear in an endless back and forth. Power increase with quirks is natural, the same way one would work out their muscles. They can't just go past it willy-nilly or is sort of invalidates a lot about All Might and what he meant to the world as the Symbol of Peace.


But MHA is similar to a lot of shonens, it shares tropes and cliches and genre conventions, but it manages to use these well, and in ways that challenge our expectations due to experience from other shonens (for example, so many people thought Bakugo would be just another Sasuke), to make an interesting story. That combined with Horikoshi's awesome art and great characters, it's no wonder the series is so popular. In Japan this year it's the 10th highest earning media franchise and 4th highest selling manga series.

Gosh Ippei's art is so good.

Mega Man's finally back, and it looks great so far. I love the art style (not 8-bit, woo!) and the song in the trailer is great as well. I can't wait to get back into the classic Mega Man groove.

One thing I really enjoyed from this trailer was the music. I haven't seen either of the Avengers movies in awhile so I haven't heard the song, but the theme song slowed down how it was in the trailer was really great.

Oh yeah, there is that whole thing between Deadpool, Death, and Thanos in the comics. That'd be interesting. Doesn't Thanos curse Deadpool with immortality at some point or whatever cuz he's jealous or something?

I don’t like glitter. It’s shiny and slick and irritating and it gets everywhere.
