  2. This trailer looked so bad ass... and then the show was a hot pile of garbage. I know origin stories have been done to death for alot of Marvel and DC properties. Everyone knows Batman and Superman's origins, but for older properties I expect some sort of backstory or origin of some kind. When Netflix rebooted Voltron it was amazingly well done. There was a full back story for all the characters that was new and refreshing, the galaxy and science was explained well, alien planets were explored and all sentient life forms had planets they came from, alien galactic powers explained, space travel, the impact of the alien invasion on Earth and in the end the scale of the universe and Voltron saving all of existence was amazing. They took an old 80s cartoon meant for selling toys into the an epic story.... And then we get He-Man. I was expecting that same level of quality. Instead we get the same cheesy cartoon from the 80s with updated animation, a couple dumb plot twists and a show that focuses entirely on the results of He-Man getting his ass kicked. And there is no back story or origins or any kind of information about these characters at all. Its a 40 year old cartoon that never had the same popularity as Batman or Superman, entire generations have never even seen a single episode of the old He-Man, and this show assumes you've seen it all and don't need any kind of refresher. This series should have been a full on reboot, but instead its 5 episodes of wasted time. Castle Grayskull could have looked epic, but they literally left its design looking just like the old cartoon... and then said it's look was all an illusion anyway because its this crystal looking palace or some crap. wtf. Theres an orb in the castle that powers all magic in the universe and must be defended at all costs, but there is no garrison stationed there, only 1 sorceress. wtf. There is advanced technology, but everyone wears loin cloths.. there are aliens living on the planet, but its never referenced if they all came from other planets to visit the main planet at the center of the universe or if everyone is just living there. And somehow a mostly naked guy with a sword can be "master of the universe" because he has a power sword, but compared to other properties like Star Trek or Star Wars or even Voltron, any of the major powers from those properties could just one shot He-Man from space like he was a flea. and they try to say that one sword ensures that the entire universe stays alive. Ok. And He-Man is barely in these 5 episodes. Here is 1 sentence explaining why: And because of that, the entire 5 episodes focuses on Teela is the focal point of the entire series. And after episode 1 she immediately gets a butch hair cut and is traveling around everywhere with her "partner". They never did any woke lesbian love crap and didn't imply they were a couple. And holy crap that magical girl transformation scene. Omg that was so bad. One thing this show had going for it was the voice actors. Top quality voices from alot of celebrities. Although if I closed my eyes Mark Hamill sounded a bit more like the Joker instead of Skeletor but Mark Hamill has done that evil Joker voice for so many years its easy to identify him now.
  3. Last week
  4. Last two seasons have been less than stellar. Negan's arc is really all that has kept me interested. I'm glad Maggie is back to finish up because she was still holding the show together after Rick left... When she went off to do her failed crime drama, the show suffered immensely. This trailer is packed with good action. Looks like we'll have a lot of Negan and Maggie having to work together. The commonwealth story, finding the deaf sister, and Daryl all have things going on. I bet that chick in the cabin he was seeing is a Reaper!
  5. Nooooooo!!! I just want to troll people with the EOD bot again on a map like Operation Locker or Operation Metro.
  6. Portal is a separate entity from BF2042 within the game. The EOD bot will only be there. I equate it to Zombie Outbreak on COD. But you still get XP and credit towards guns. They'll limit it if the logic editor makes something too cheese. I do see it useful to completing assignments. The segment with the defibs and knives... in BF2 there was a defib only server and it was hilarious... but it was on the honor system. You'd get kicked if you used guns. This allows that mode to be locked in... and if there is a defib kills assignment? There you go. I like this for the fact that you can play classic BF with a twist and knock out annoying assignments for gear at the same time.
  7. Omg. EOD bot has me completely sold on this game. If I had a PS5 I'd buy this game asap.
  8. If done right. We shouldn't need another BF for 4-5 years TBH.
  9. Both anime series were extremely disappointing. I think I fell asleep for a few eps of this one and didn't even care to go back and rewatch. How can we get anime so right until it comes to Godzilla? Seriously, just watch SSSS.GRIDMAN and SSSS.DYNAZENON for a good Kaiju anime.
  10. The trailers were better than the show. 80% of Godzilla Singular Point was a small handful of characters talking about make believe non-plausible or even remotely believable science and half of that dialogue took place in text message form while us as the viewer literally stare at the characters phone screens for 10 minutes at a time. Better watch it in english because I don't see anyone reading subtitles that fast. The monsters were good, but there wasn't enough action, and what action we did have, none of the characters ever showed any actual sense of danger. That was more unbelievable than all the BS science they kept talking about. There are monsters all over the place about to murder everyone and every character's reactions are so deadpan its as if nobody fears anything, and I mean every character from the main characters, regular people walking down the street, tv news anchors, etc. Its basically a potential extinction level event for humanity in the making and literally everyone is completely chill. wtf. And also, Godzilla is barely in this until the end of the season. If not for Jet Jaguar every character would have been dead before we hit the halfway point of the season. Also, consider this series a completely different alternate universe for everything Godzilla related. All the monsters, Godzilla itself, Jet Jaguar, all of it is completely unrelated to anything ever done with anything related to Godzilla. The other Netflix Godzilla series, "Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters" is also an alternate universe of Godzilla as well, but it was the superior of these series. BTW, the end of the last episode does have an after credits scene that leads into a potential season 2.

    Aya Neo

    As far as I know the 1st 500 backers already got their AyaNeos & I might be a part of the 2nd batch of backers. I get updates about how the 2nd batch of backers will get improved AyaNeos while the 1st 500 backers will get free upgrades. The AyaNeo I'll eventually be getting is the 2021 edition & AyaNeo has plans for another 1 codenamed XXX right now. If I didn't already back AyaNeo 2021 edition I'd probably wait to see if it could run Windows 11.

    Aya Neo

    I've missed some topics over time. x_x I forgot about this one. Have they given you any updates about when they'll ship yours?
  13. Steam Deck looks great, the Ayaneo looks really good too, same with the Switch OLED... If Nintendo made a new Switch that did 4k I'd have been extremely tempted to buy that over a PS5 just to play nintendo exclusives. Oh well, someday.
  14. Took me a while to finish watching these videos. Considering that second round of pre-orders might not get shipped until late 2022 really makes this another scalpers golden ticket item again. I like the Steam Deck and I think its a great idea, but with whatever silicon ship shortage BS the world has right now, its pretty crap timing and this is going to be flipped on ebay just as bad as the PS5. At least the initial scalpers were denied their ebay listings, until it gets closer to December when they'll be allowed to list them for thousands of dollars. Reviewtechusa makes a great point about the base model though. I'd pass on that and go for the 512 gb version.

    *Edit* *Edit 2*
  17. So essentially they faux kept classes by making you choose between Resupply, Health pack, or launcher. I'm fine with this. It will be interesting to see this new take on conquest. It honestly just feels like they took bred Operations and Conquest and came up with this mode. Thats fine... personally I'm down with it... but I can already see the backlash and they'll have "Classic Conquest" added to the playlist after launch... and it better still be 128 players and like 12-15 flags. The cooldown on vehicle spawning is very encouraging. It will give everyone a chance to get a vehicle and put an end to spawn screen camping. So far it feelsl like we're going in the right direction.
  18. This actually interests me. I love the back buttons. As amazing as the dualsense is... its baffling they didn't include back buttons. and 3rd party modders already want $250 for a modded DS.
  19. I remember when this was rumored to be called Steam Pal. And before that there was a Steam Machine handheld that failed to launch named Smach Z. I expect to find out that Steam Deck like Steam Machines before it will only be able to run games that work on Linux & will void warrantee if you want to use the desktop. On the other hand if I had money to burn I'd probably buy a Steam Deck. I don't expect AyaNeo to sell more than Steam Deck, but I wouldn't be surprised if Alienware UFO or some other well known PC company did.
  20. Steam has made its own hand held game console. It can be used as a handheld or docked to a tv like the Nintendo Switch. Honestly, this looks like a solid hand held. Everyone that does PC gaming has a steam account and most likely alot of games already in their library. There are three versions: $399, $529 & $649 depending on the internal storage. Its shipping December of 2021. https://www.steamdeck.com/en/?snr=1_4_4__118 The hardware looks great too: https://www.steamdeck.com/en/hardware
  21. The "I won't forgive you!" reveal at the end fucking killed me. The whole time you wonder why she said that... and you realize the whole context. The waterworks flowed. This series was so tender and amazing.
  22. I finished up Fruits Basket a couple days ago. Overall it was a great reboot. Season 1 was pretty spot on with the original season except it went a bit faster and felt like it lost some of the humor the original show had because the characters didn't seem to transform as often, but maybe I'm remembering the original wrong since its been over 10 years since I've seen it. The two eps that focused on Hana & Uo-chan were really good since they didn't go into any real backstory for those 2 characters in the original series. Season 2 went a bit slow and the student council/Yuki school president episodes felt like filler to me, but by the end of the series it was all character development for Yuki and how things ended with his relationships. Season 3 was so emotional and I love that the series got an ending after all these years.
