    I skipped BFV because the devs were douches, and the game design was trash. I don't regret it... hell I even bought CODs I wasn't planning on playing months after they came out because I had the itch, but I've had zero desire to even try BFV after the beta. Now I doubt I'll ever buy a Battlefield game ever again. I can see them tampering with how effective your bullet spread is or isn't to make you want to buy something... nah. They have technology to alter your performance without you knowing they gave you a handicap or boost. Maybe this is why "netcode" has been shit for years.

    I can't wait for this weird ass game. As I said last year, I think the coolest part of all this is Lindsay Wagner. I use to watch Bionic Woman on the Sci-Fi channel when I was a kid. Its neat to see these older performers be able to recapture their youth in gaming. They nailed her look.

    I give dubs credit more often than not even if I prefer subs and it's actually more common to see better portrayal of emotions in dubs then it is subs (the Japanese aren't really into showing emotions and it does show in subs more often then not). There's a reason I prefer the dubs of Cowboy Bebop (I like both tracks but the English track is just so much better, the English VA's fit their characters better than the Japanese VA's), Ghost in the Shell (yes, I actually love the GitS dub mostly because it's the way I watched it originally), The Slayers (this gets me so much crap among my friends because they think the subs is superior, I like both tracks but the dub sits better with me), and Martian Successor Nadesico (the dub is far superior in every way minus one character's voice, the sub is so freaking bland) over their Japanese tracks. Sadly though it's really hit or miss for what dubs I'm willing to watch and even more so now that I have instant access to subs the day of or after it airs in Japan (thank you CR). My problem with dubs is the lack of voice actors over here and it gets annoying when you're sitting there and go "Oh that's so and so from (list any of like 50 shows or games)" because they don't add in variation in there voice (I can pick out Jet's voice actor instantly because of this, he keeps that voice in everything he does. Same with Spike's). I really don't like that feeling because it takes me right out of the show. True I can do this with Japanese VA's as well but they try to vary their voice between characters and it's sometimes harder to pick them out.

    Edit: it looks like Toonami will be caught up by the time the new season starts. *sigh* I'm not even going to try to hope they don't have the same deal with funi on this as they do with AoT even tho they started way behind.

    Final Fantasy VII

    FFVI was an amazing game. One of my all time favorites and ranks right up there with FFVII. That game had weird too. lol. A psycho clown bent on destroying the world.. interesting characters. A couple hidden ones too like that guy that does the Mimic skill which is super OP because it can mimic summons.. and a yeti. That yeti couldn't wear armor and only used a club, but damn if he wasn't good at clubbing enemies. FF7 didn't have a better story that FFVI, they were easily on par with each other. But FF7 beats out FF6 with its combat system. In FF6 your characters are set in stone with their skills and abilities. But the materia system in FF7 was so robust, you can make any character do just about anything. Everyone can cast spells, anyone could be a reviver, anyone a summoner, etc. The only major reasons for having specific characters on a team were for their unique combat style/weapon, melee or ranged, their limit breaks and whoever you personally liked best. But unlike FF6, FF7 had an actual endgame with grind mechanics. One of the last save points in the game is right before the final dungeon. The game even tells you, once you enter there is no going back out, save here so you can continue exploring the world. Aside from the stuff I already mentioned, the materia system provided a grind aspect for endgame. With all XP you got, your materia itself would level up too. As it leveled up its skills upgraded. Got a lightning materia.. level it up, now whoever has it equipped can use lightning 2.. then 3. But the real kicker is when you maxed out a materia, it would clone itself a new level 1 version. Then you can equip it on somebody else and start leveling it up. For high end materia, it was worth the grind to get all the characters powerful spells... well at least the three main characters on your team. Eventually you could get a master materia that had basically all spells except summons I think and then that was OP. Once you have a set of 3 materias you like for the characters, its kind of pointless to level them further when you can swap the materia to other characters. But aside from all that I think this game hit a bunch of kids with puberty at just the right time. Alot of guys got crushes on Tifa.. and females got a thing for Cloud. lol. Even though the characters looked blocky as hell, in cut scenes they looked cool and throughout the game it goes into character depth more and you start feeling for these two. Not going to lie, I had a thing for Tifa for years.

    Godzilla Resurgence - Trailer

    Funimation put this up finally and it was dubbed... You can tell dubbing foreign films is still stuck in the 60s-70s. Recording voices in the studio over real people is hard. I will say they did an excellent job of lip syncing. The joke of old where the lips keep moving after or well before the voice ends is almost non existent. The issue just comes with that the voices sound like they were dubbed, and in doing so you loose the audio's sound in its true surroundings... no echos in a hallway and what not. The reverberations are missing in relative to the actors surroundings I guess is what I'm trying to say. Plus standing in front of a mic trying to convey fatigue in a realistic fashion rather than an overly dramatic anime style where the character is drawn to take fast deep breaths doesn't come across as sincere. What was funny is that a good chunk of the Fairy Tail dub cast was tasked with this. It was odd hearing a lot of familiar voices do this movie. Todd Haberkorn who voices Natsu also voices the main character here. As a whole, it was entertaining.... but def not one of the best. Japanese CGI is still terrible and laughable. Some of the scenes where Godzilla had to move fast just looked so bad. The resolution to the film was awful... oh and shame on Hideaki Anno for using multiple remixes of the Evangelion background OST for this movie. For hardcore Godzilla fans it's a must watch, but for the casual stick with the Legendary Pictures versions.

    Final Fantasy VII

    Tifa gameplay footage and Sephiroth reveal. I'll probably get this when the whole thing is out. I've never played a final fantasy game because despite it moving away from it in recent years... I've never ever liked turn based RPGS. I don't know the lore of each game and how they compare, I just remember how mega hype this game was when it came out from people that loved RPGs. Whether it deserved it in hindsight, I can't make that call. But regardless it probably benefited a lot from a major turning point in gaming history which was the 32bit era.. While the 128 bit era was the golden age, the 32bit era was the renaissance that lead to it. New technology was born, things that were never done before in gaming were coming to life. No doubt being the first FF game on PSX enhanced its mark in history.

    Final Fantasy VII

    For me the main draw of FFVII was all the extra stuff you could do in it. It was one of the first games for me that had an actual end game separate from the final boss. There was chocobo breeding, full world exploration with the air ship, 2 or 3 ultimate weapon optional boss battles that were insanely difficult. There were hidden characters, like Vincent that you could outright skip on getting and finish the game without even knowing he was a character. The customization with the materia was the best though. I tried so many different combos with different weapons to deck out all my characters to be so bad ass. lol. Limit breaks were awesome. Character diversity was top notch. It had everything from superhuman soldier Cloud, Tifa the bad ass woman that punches and kicks everything to death, a talking red wolf, a bad ass black dude, a vampire, a ninja girl, so many more.. a robot looking carnival thing with a cat sitting on it being remote controlled by some guy we never see... lmao. The plot was confusing as all hell initially, but overall enjoyable and more understandable with more world exploration. Lol.. and Kotaku has a good point about the game.. its weird. https://kotaku.com/final-fantasy-vii-retrospective-the-weirdest-rpg-ever-1797547869

    Final Fantasy VII

    If they're smart they'll break it up by how the game was broken up between three discs when it originally released or at least after each major plot points (it's been years since I played this last so I'm not entirely sure how the story goes anymore but I'd say around a certain someone's death and around the whole revelation behind what Cloud is/whats going on with him). I'd expect no more than 3-4 parts if they want to please fans and release it relatively fast but SE might draw that out more if they really want to milk it. Meh, while it looks good I was severely underwhelmed by FFVII and still fail to see why it's lauded as being the best FF game. I honestly thought the story was generic and besides a few standout characters I really didn't like the cast all that much. I might buy this once all the installments are out but I'll have Cyberpunk less than a month after this first one releases and that will eat all of my free time that isn't devoted to FFXIV.

    I guess I got so use to them never being in costume that i didn't care. I mean they look like they're all wearing a party city Halloween consume of one of Jean Grey's comic variations. Sophie has a small frame and it looks like she's wearing football pads under her top in the top pic. Everyone else's outfit fits great except hers. Shes just a bad actor. Shes got the same facial expression and tone in everything she does. And when she does interviews shes a different person entirely so its not her personality. Shes just not good at acting.

    Funimation put up Your Name. I remember all the hype behind this film and how it it became the highest grossing anime at the box office. After watching it, it was kinda a letdown. I mean it wasn't bad, but Spirited Away is immensely superior to this movie. Its worth watching, but I wouldn't grade it above a solid straight to Netflix feature.

    lmao! If you thought those guys looked like power ranger enemies you should skip ahead to the last battle to see the crab men.

    I saw 30 min of this movie in passing around when he had some arena fight and thought the acting was terrible, the villain was bland, and there was a bunch of power ranger looking enemies. 😂 I had no desire to see the whole thing after.

    Deadpool 2

    I can't believe I didn't post about this movie after watching it. I loved Deadpool 2. So much better than the first movie. XD Domino's luck ability was amazing and the comedy in this was spot on. I really hope Deadpool 3 happens.

    MGS1 was the best, I wish they'd remake it, but they won't because of the Gamecube Twin Snakes remake that was already done... which made it even better. I liked 3 a lot, but I didn't like having to pause every new environment to change my camo to get to a good 80-90%. I thought 4 was outstanding besides the crawling through the radioactive room part for absolutely no reason. Piloting Metal Gear Rex was epic!

    Godzilla: King of the Monsters

    The movie was a blast. It was a direct call back to the Showa era. The story wasn't as serious as the last film, and you could say it wasn't as good. It was just filler for the battles. You really don't care about any of the human characters. Lets be honest here, as kids we didn't give two shits about the human characters. The best part about the human aspect is there was no constant forced comedy that plagues the industry these days. There was some subtle humor, and overall it didn't take itself too seriously. If you're a huge Godzilla fan, you're aware of the classic story flow each of the protagonist Godzilla films worked, and this followed the same structure. They don't make you wait long until the throw downs start happening. The best part of it all was just busting out a triumphant high definition audio version of the classic Toho theme. Simply outstanding. Plenty of fan service going on with the Kaiju fights. This monsterverse must continue. I want Mecha Godzilla! While the first film was more grounded in a realistic "what if" situation, this film delved more into the Sci-Fi aspect with some crazy technological advances. The bridge to get more wild is there. There is a post credits so stay for it. The ultimate tribute

    My Hero Academia: Two Heroes

    *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).

    TheQuartering

    Not commenting on the videos (not a huge fan of The Quartering but I won't let my personal opinions come in on this) but we'll never see a Starcraft 3 for the same reasons we won't see a Warcraft 4, WoW takes up way to much of their development time and Diablo is a major push right now after the Immortal fiasco (kind of the reason why we'll never see a KoToR 3 out of BioWare (besides other reasons)). Plus, correct me if I'm wrong, I thought SC2's LotV ending left little to no room for another sequel (I still haven't beaten LotV but from what I've read there really isn't anywhere to go with the story). I'd of taken a Starcraft FPS any day (hell I was one of the people fucking hyped over Ghost which got cancelled mysteriously, pissed me off). Honestly Overwatch 2 is something I'm surprised to hear about considering I didn't think Overwatch was in need of a sequel game considering how well its still doing (hell they're still adding characters, something you wouldn't do if you were concerned about the game dying or needed a sequel). Then again with Activision loosing one of their cash cows in Destiny 2 maybe they're forcing Blizzard to release games on currently successful franchises (I mean lets face it Starcraft has never been anything more than a cult hit over here (it's beyond huge in South Korea) so it was inevitable that it would get closeted again (probably for another 10 years).
