  4. It's alright, not series level good but still a fun watch (completely original material not stemming from the game). It's a nice change as Kurisu is the major focus of the movie instead of Okabe.
  5. On an unrelated note. I noticed Funi added the Steins;Gate movie. I'll have to check it out when I get time.
  6. *revives dead topic* So I watched this tonight after renting it from PSN and it was fucking amazing. God damn is this movie everything you want it to be and more. I won't really go into specifics because if you've seen MHA you pretty much know what to expect (animation is great, same old lovable characters with some new ones added in (Melissa is such a great character, with this being canon I'm hoping we get to see more of her in the actual show because she has great chemistry with the cast and I could really see her being Deku's support person when he goes Pro), a great OST, and a damn good plot (interesting to learn more about All Might and his past)) and it's hard to really process my thoughts and feelings (especially after that epic finale (I think I screamed louder then I should of in excitement during it)). After re-watching some of the old episodes it looks like it takes place either shortly after the Stain incident or shortly after the Training Camp incident (it could be either or but I lean more toward the Training Camp as he makes mention of not injuring his arms early in the film and All Might hasn't well been through the rest of S3 yet). I will say I went into expecting the same old MHA and I'm happy it delivered that and more. Definitely worth a watch if you've seen the show or even if you have a passing interest in it (I mean it pays to know what happens before it but I feel it's not exactly necessary to enjoy the film). I had no plans on buying this movie but I'm thinking I have to make an exception now (I had no plans on buying the series due to it's length and unfinished state but I might have to now if I buy this).
  7. Last week
  8. Sony needed to get their heads out of their asses in terms of cross play. I'm guessing they will fully embrace it since they'll use MS server infrastructure. And I'm glad they are doing that. PSN has always been garbage. At one point I had 200 mbps internet, now its 100 mbps... I've never seen a game or update from sony download even close to 30 mbps on my ps4. Its so damn slow.
  9. It was only a matter of time before this happened. PS4's software infrastructure is absolute trash compared to Xbox. Sony's games are the only reason they are in the lead. Consoles will probably be full crossplay this coming gen. Sony realized if they got left out, people will choose playing with their friends over the better games so long as there is enough interesting games on the platforms that can play with each other. Console gaming will be like PC gaming... its just the launchers will be consoles with their own exclusive games. We're still a ways off from cloud gaming TBH until internet accessibility becomes a hell of a lot stronger outside of major metropolitan areas. Cloud gaming will take the niche place of digital downloads as digital download only consoles become the norm in place of discs. If PS5 has a digital only version similar to the latest Xbox One models, I'll definitely get it.
  10.  I started Revisions on Netflix. The first episode has awful and janky CGI but it gets a lot better after that. The premise is great, but for fucks sake the main character is so damn annoying. He makes Asta from Black Clover look like a good character. Mecha series have the absolute worst main characters the majority of the time. I just don't get it. Mikazuki Augus, Sousuke Sagara, Lelouch Vi Britannia, and Van of the Dawn are the only ones I can think of that I've ever liked. But here we don't have your typical emotionless husk, or pacifist crybaby... you'd only wish for that once you meet Daisuke Dojima. He's ultra full of himself and a selfish idiot. Holy cow he should be a side character. All his friends aren't that great either as they all bicker with Daisuke's douchness. Why am I even watching this? XD

  11. Aside from my one big gripe and a small one where I was expecting them to just kill John Wick instead of talk, John Wick Chapter 3 has lots of amazing action moments. Now for my one big gripe.
  12. I refuse to believe this video and will remain nervous about that comment now until I see the PS5.
  13. https://www.crunchyroll.com/anime-news/2019/05/13/galactic-heroes-season-2-launches-release-dates-and-key-visuals Season 2! I didn't get Legend of Legendary Hero'ed
  14. Earlier
  15. Netflix put Code Geass up. Rewatching it reminded me what a badass Cornelia was (ultra best girl), and how savage Euphemia's death was. Damn it was so gut wrenching. It will always be the moment I'll never forget about the series. 

    Also, how I yearn for a return drawn mecha battles. Even the most degraded model quality in motion is so much better than wonky slow CGI. The Lancelot is such an awesome design.

      I also didn't realize how shit Zero was the first time I watched it. He only won his first and last battle... every other one was a complete failure minus Euphy's massacre. Yet the Black Knights kept following him even though he abandoned them multiple times. XD Plus he forgot all about Kallen, the second most bad ass female behind Cornelia, after she was captured. She just escaped by chance. There were several times, several people could have revealed his identity and ruined him... I mean the only one that made sense was Euphy since she loved Lelouch and had to reason to hate him. I guess the story isn't all that great, but I still love it.

      I also like the fact that Netflix deemed the series TV-14 even though Villetta's and Kallen's tits flop out multiple times. XD WTF, I guess it would get through any parental control options.

  16. Eh, we got cheated on this short season of GoT. As cool as the winterfell battle was, the Night King's death felt so meaningless. And now Danny is insane?  C'mon... Yeah shes my favorite character, and I wouldn't have minded a descent into madness, but a flip in 2 eps? It's so forced it's sad. Just because Jon told the fam about his heritage and her friend got cut down. It made for an action packed ep, but it didnt make a lot of sense. The Hound and Mountain rivalry was resolved which is what I'm satisfied with... Mountain looked like bloated Darth Vader. 😂😂

      I had four favorite characters. Two made it all the way to the end... the other two made it to the final two episodes. Not bad. Tyrion, Bronn, Sandor, and Dany. Dany got screwed as a character... like I said, it could have worked with more development. The end of it was there, and sorta the beginning when he burned Sam's father and brother, but the path in between was nonexistent. The Master of Grammar line was the best part of the finale. XD

      Dany should have been queen and not gone all super tyrannical. 😕 The writing was bad and the ending was so blah compared to the rest of the series. It could have gone alot better. Now my major concern is the two directors. Once there was no more source material this is the best they could come up with? These are the two guys that will be directing the next trilogy of star wars movies. Ugh.

      Btw I saw 2 memes last night.. I should have saved them. Both were of Bronn. One quoted Dany's speech about breaking wheels and there's Bronn in his wheel chair "what was that about wheels?" XD the other showed Bronn sitting in the wheel chair.. "Bronn has been sitting on the throne for the last 8 seasons" or something like that. XD

      It definitely got Fullmetal Alchemist'ed

    Aurora + Poly aura combo

    That looks great on her.
  18. I"m loving owning a lawn tractor. I've used it only twice so far, but its great. I can get my entire lawn mowed in just under an hour and a half. The cup holder seems so pointless.. lawn tractors don't have shocks, its only the seat that has springs to save you from getting your ass and back wrecked.. I could only imagine someone putting a beer in that cup holder and driving off on the yard, that beer would last maybe 20 seconds before its all over the tractor. XD Now I need to buy a weed trimmer to trim around the trees and the ditch.. and 3 ceiling fans. I hate the light fixtures in 3 rooms. Time for an upgrade.

  19. That looks like a scene taken right out of the book. Creepy as hell. The only thing that is odd to me is that brief shot of a circus. I don't recall a circus in the book.
  20. It looks really good so far. I'm hoping it'll be released within the next decade.
  21. The original topic was an article, which apparently doesn't count as a topic anymore. But that was 2015 when I made it... here we go again.
  22. 13 episodes into The Rising of the Shield Hero, and this show is pretty much taken the crown for this season... or last season depending.. I guess it counts for both as its still going. Unlike most Isekai, the main character is constantly getting screwed and is always at a disadvantage. The pure hatred you feel for all the other characters in this alternate world of douche is amazing. Literally everyone except a small handful of people are assholes. So the main character tends to go Mass Effect Renegade at times. The emotional vitriol this show invokes is outstanding. The animation of the characters and the dub voice actors nail it completely... as someone that it doesn't take much to want a character to die... I REALLY want 90% of the cast dead. XD

  23. So it might be a tad bit early but I'm thinking that The Promised Neverland is going down as my anime of the year (beating out Boogiepop, Demon Slayer, and Fruits Basket). Man was that a fun trip through some pretty gruesome themes and interesting concepts. Highly suggest watching this when it gets dubbed (unless you want to watch it subbed (I mean come on it's that good)).

    I knew going into it that it was a horror/psychological anime but boy do they trick you when you first start watching it as it's all fun and games right until the end of the first episode. Quite honestly I really don't know how to summarize my thoughts on the show because it's hard to really say anything without ruining the shows premise and horror element (which they really drive home in the latter episodes).

    I will say the story is pretty damn good from start to finish even if they leave you with more questions then they do answers (I know they'll get into that later (it got greenlit for another season) but they really do a bad job setting up why things are the way they are in the first season but I guess its the same in the manga), the characters for the most part are intriguing and interesting (most of the secondary cast it rather bleh but the main characters really sell the show and does the main antagonist)), animation is top notch and damn well done (some of the best this year only taking second to Demon Slayer for me), and the soundtrack is damn good (that opening though, not Demon Slayer topping but still damn good).

    Honestly I'm disappointed I didn't watch it when it was airing but I'm glad I could just marathon through it in three days because waiting each week for one new ep would of been painful. Happy its getting a second season but I'm sad that won't be until next year at the earliest. Solid 9/10 for me (would of gone 10/10 but there were a few things I had issues with toward the end). Now I just need to watch Kaguya-sama and Quintessential Quintuplets and I'll be caught up on last seasons shows that I wanted to watch.

      So early to call. XD Currently Slime is a top contender for me. But I have no doubt it will get knocked off by something as there's still plenty of months left. I just watched the first ep of shield hero and i find it hilarious people got mad about this ep. It was nothing compared to Goblin Slayer's first ep. Then I'm watching YU-NO where the main characters step mom is blackmailed into intercourse. It didn't show any of it, but heavily implied it with wet bed sheets and a trashcan of condom wrappers (How is this TV-14 funi? wtf?). Honestly, that one made me cringe harder than the other two. Although I don't think I'll ever get as angry as when Lafter got murdered out of the blue in IBO.

      Wow. that was a tangent. Anyways, yeah Shield Hero... pretty good so far... but man, Isekai is becoming to anime what FPS is to gaming. I kinda wish we could go back to a Mecha golden age.

  24. Ah the final season was going so good and then the end they tried to pack way to much into the finale and it ended up being as cheese as the street fighter movie at times. I'm not going to complain though, it still had some really awesome moments, it wouldn't have been so bad if they didn't do all the damn posing stances. The good news is they left the doors wide open for the series to continue. If I had to guess they really want to sell it for some money... probably to netflix who already streams the older eps. I really hope this happens and they ignore the last 10 seconds of the finale. There are so many more stories to tell that they didn't close out.
