  1. How To Train Your Dragon 3 was wonderful.

  2. After seeing Alita, I still think the Astro Boy 2009 movie is the best Hollywood adaptation of a manga. It's by no means flawless or anything, but it fleshes out its story and characters better. Obviously Astro Boy has the advantage of being an easier and simpler story to adapt, but again, I think if Alita had at least 30 more minutes of runtime it could have slowed down and let the characters breathe and interact slowly more it could have been so much better. As is, its pacing is way too fast.

  3. Considering the internet loves to condemn this kind of things, how come the makers of Hyperdimension Neptunia get off scot free despite doing this? :

      We'll just leave at Getting Crap Past the Radar. I not sure how often they go after normally tame series that make a brief mature joke like that.

      That's like 97% of all anime so I think most people who like anime but not the weird gropey stuff have built up a tolerance or put up a mental filter when this shit comes up.

      Can we not have some kind of moral outrage over this? I'm already pretty aggravated over all the calls for censorship these days as it is.

      I will gladly call for censorship on creepy shit like pedophilia

      I didnt actually watch what it was, so I'll agree to that. I thought it was just one of those situations like with dead or alive or something.

      However, while I'm still uncomfortable with any notion of censorship on principle, I can't object when it's....that.

  4. Alita Battle Angel is an ok movie elevated by impressive visuals and cool action scenes. It's fun, but the pacing is way too fast. We don't get much time to get to know the characters before shit starts hitting the fan, so the emotional scenes don't work nearly as well as they should. Rodriguez and the cast are at the top of their game, the problem is Cameron's script, if this was written by pre-Titanic James Cameron, maybe the 2 hour runtime could work, but Cameron clearly lost his writing talent.

  5. So I finally got around to watching Ready Player One....I never thought someone could make so much action involving so many iconic characters so boring. Cookie Cutter plot and characters, annoying and cynical pop culture trivia/references and for a movie that supposedly is a celebration of geek culture, it does take mean spirited jabs at it at times. This movie is basically an old man(Spielberg) trying to become relevant with today's movie audience by going "Hey guys, look, I know nerd stuff too!". Pathetic.

      The 1980s fetishism on display in the movie is incredibly irritating.

      As if any kid in the middle of the 21st century is going to give a shit about obscure 1980s TV shows.

      Well that's how it goes when you sit through what basically a two hour long episode of this

       

  6. So have you guys heard of the early Xbox 360 game made by Sumo Digital that releases 9 days from now? It's called Crackdown 3:

      Seriously, what the fuck happened?

      development hell everyone

      @pppp Development hell at its finest is what happened.

      (Recall this was originally supposed to be released in 2016, was first announced to be in development in 2014.)

      CD3 was originally supposed to be made by four studios.

      - Cloudgine was intended to develop the core engine, which had a big focus on using cloud computing for the destruction of the city

      - Reagent Games (studio located near Cloudgine) handled gameplay and art assets

      - Sumo Digital was responsible for the game's campaign mode

      - Ruffian Games managed the multiplayer

      Moreover, the main idea of having Crackdown 3 use cloud computing features was the brainchild of Dave Jones. He directed the original Crackdown, and is the founder of Cloudgine, the former Realtime Worlds (who made the original CD) and Reagent Games (who made CD2). [You can also see how CD3 using cloud technology was a big part of the whole "Xbox One uses the power of the cloud" campaign MS was pushing at the time.]

      Then in early 2018, Cloudgine was acquired by Epic Games, with in Jones and several Reagent programmers also leaving to join Epic around the same time. Sumo Digital was announced by MS as the primary developer for the game later at that year's E3 (with MS saying they were always the lead development studio, Cloudgine was only there to provide cloud computing support).

      e: Wow, the main characters / vehicle don't even have any shadows, what's up with that?....

  7. Alright, about to start KH3. I actually loved the gameplay of every game up until this point (Well, not Days, that was just ok) and as for plot, even at its worst I still found it far more entertaining than seasons 4 and 5 of Steven Universe(Yeah I said it, eat me). I'm also always up for more KH music by Ms. Shimomura. Let's see how this one fares.

      So even an overly complex Disney/Square crossover plot that's been building it up for 17 years is still worth much more that one that involves only its own characters that's going on for only six.

       

      That sure tells me alot.

      @SupahBerry I enjoyed season 1-3, but after that the show went full pretensious and nonsensical.

      >Steven Universe

      ...kind of a odd example to use for comparison IMO, but okay

  8. Yo-Kai Watch 4 looks fantastic:

     

  9. If they can't handle that kind of stuff then they should quit the entertainment industry, that kind of thing is part of it. Well if they didn't want to get dumped on then they should have made a more appealing product that is easy to like at first glance. Look if you can't stand the negativity in this topic why are you even still reading it? You can always go to a place on the internet that likes it so far and just talk to those people instead?
  10. Even if that's how it looks it still looks ugly, the proportions are still completely out of whack.
  11. 100 € for Heavy Rain?  For you americans out there that's 113.28 dollars. This is revenge for Detroit Become Human not winning anything at the Game Awards is it?

  12. Oh you mean kinda like you suddenly became an expert in marketing, brand strenghtening, mass audience appeal and all that stuff you've been lecturing people on here since yesterday? Do you have 20+ years of experience on those matters by any chance, since by your own logic unless you do then you clearly don't know what you're talking about, so do you?
  13. Ralph Breaks The Internet is pretty damn good I'd say. Clever, Funny and a valuable message for kids. If you think the videogame aspect is gone don't worry, it's still a big part of it.

      Some part of me was expecting it to be the Emoji movie with Wreck it Ralph characters. Apparently not.

      @SenEDDtor Missile It's not even fair to compare. The Internet aspect actually helps the story instead of just being a gimmick. It helps that the jokes are actually funny and accurate to how the Internet is unlike the Emoji movie.But just like with the first movie the games and web are just vehicles for the actual story. It's a story about what it means to be a friend of someone, something that everyone can relate to regardless of gaming and web knowledge, and it's valuable for kids.

    Mega Man: Fully Charged

    Yeah the Man Man episode is actually the best one so far if you ask me, some of the jokes involving him were genuinely witty and for once the moral didn't come across as forced as usual. It's an alright episode all around, nothing special but by this show's standards that's an accomplishment.

    Mega Man: Fully Charged

    Even so, I think he came around way too easily.
