First Thoughts Titans Trailer

 Hey Gang!

  I know I literally just posted about television shows I was looking forward to but somehow I forgot about Titans. The Live action series about Teen Titans on DC Universe, the pay to watch streaming service that DC is going to roll out in the next coming months. I was already excited about the show, and wanting to see it, when I saw the trailer was released and I thought what a better time to write about it?

  I was already excited about Titans because it was live action, I was going to get to see my fictional bae on the screen non-animated, which hasn’t happened since 1966. * We’re all ignoring Batman Forever, even though that Robin was pretty cute too.* I’m going to talk about three things I liked, and three things I hope they fix before it airs. 

- I am absolutely in love with the way Starfire looks.  Like everything is perfect, I’m in love with her hair, her eyes, the fact that everything about her glows, literally, I’m so excited to see her in action.

- That it obviously takes place after Robin’s time with Batman. Which I love, so many people don’t think about Dick Grayson as anything other than the original robin and he’s so much more than that. 

- I love the dark mood that it’s obviously meant to possess. After Teen Titans Go, and the other animated renditions of the titans, I’m ready for something a bit more grown up. 

Here are the things I hope they get fixed before the first episode airs.

 - I didn’t see Cyborg at all... I’m hoping it’s because they’re still putting together the costume and  casting it. I’m really hoping that they don’t leave him out because of the animated films pushing him to the League, he’s an integral member and I really want to see him there. 

- It’s so OBVIOUS that Raven is younger than the rest of the crew... I am not certain exactly how I feel about that, but I wish they’d do something about it... Unless it’s integral to the plot, I feel like she should be the same age as everyone else.

- I’m a little uneasy about Dick with a gun, but it looks like he’s a detective or police officer in this? I’m hoping the blood on his chin, is from his escrima deflecting others bullets, I don’t know how I feel about him having a gun, especially since his parents were murdered by a mobster, who if I’m not certain, shot the ropes... I’m hoping that perhaps it just looks that way but isn’t for certain, besides it’s Teen Titans, nothing is as it seems.

Series #57: Television shows I’m looking forward too.

 Hey Gang!

  I generally don’t do list posts about television programs, but I started thinking why not and here we are. With so many awesome and interesting shows coming out within the next year or so, I thought it would be fun to list some of the shows I’m super excited about watching. 

- Thundercats Roar: I know people are complaining about the art style, but I AM SO HERE FOR IT! That trailer was all I needed their so cute, and adorable and I can’t wait to watch it!

- Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Because DUH! See: A Chat w/ Robert Hack, Things I love about Sabrina and more. I was really hoping that the finale of Riverdale was going to tie in to Sabrina, but alas, that didn’t happen.

- She-Ra: Written by one of my favorite comic writers, I literally can’t wait to watch it, while I’m not thrilled about the design, ( I was really hoping for older teen/adult she-ra) I am none the less thrilled to watch it!

- Burden Of Truth: I don’t think I will ever tire of mysteries, lawyer shows or anything that’s going to cause me to use my noodle in a deductive manner. 

- The innocents: Supernatural, British? Need I say more, I am hoping for a more diverse cast, because I know there’s more than one black actor in Britain, but I won’t hold my breath.

- One Dollar: A unique spin on bringing a group together, and lets be honest, all you have to say is Murder and I’ll sit down to watch. *See below for confirmation*

- Magnum P.I. : I was excited about the reboot when it was in its early stages, people were talking about a female Magnum and I was so for that, however, now it’s getting ready to premiere, and all of a sudden the sidekick is female...I’m hoping that she puts him and his mysoginistic ass through the wringer, but here’s hoping.

- Rent Live!: Grease was really good, and Rent’s songs alone are amazing so I’m hoping that they’ll do it justice. I’m looking forward to it, because I absolutely love musicals, and there’s no better way to celebrate them than to sit on your couch in comfy clothes and sing along with the television.

JRPG July #0: 9 Games you should Play.

Hey Gang!

  The awesome lady at Chic-Pixel is back at it once again! In January she put together a community post along to give some arcade fighters some much needed love. I participated in these posts. This month she’s back with JRPGs! Shedding some light, and giiving love to Japanese Role Playing Games that claim our hearts, and I want to do the same. 

  Here are 9 of my favorite titles, and why I love them. 

- Project X Zone 2: I personally hold this as my favorite crossover. You literally get to play as multiple characters in a melee button mashing masterpiece. An evil group opens black holes all over the time space continum, which brings characters from different franchises that probably would't have happened otherwise. I came across lifelong favorites, and new characters who quickly became new favorites. The nerd cred you'll receive from playing this game, and actually knowing the franchises the characters hail from is unparalled. It's the best. 

Project_x_zone_2_review.jpg

- Stella Glow: I drone on and on about how I'm not patient enough for turnbased gameplay, but the reason Stella Glow made the list, is that it is a very limited area of movement. Which to most people would be a turn off, but there are only two pet peeves to playing role playing games, getting stuck in a battle that takes forever, OR getting lost forever. Without the ability to actually move and explore, it cuts out a lot of time that would be wasted by me anyway. You still have the ability to "explore" and collect items and powerups, but you don't have the aspect of getting lost and battle monsters over and over again. Plus the story is super interesting and I love the characters.

- Persona Q: Cuz Duh! Persona, is a gaming series that I would be very remiss not to include in this list. Everyone has played some type of Persona at some point in their lives, I'm still on the lookout for the dancing game, but I'll find it eventually. Persona Q is adorable versions of characters whom can be found in 3 and 4, and you play in a dungeonesque environment that absolutely resembles Wonderland. What more do you need?

- Pokemon: I repeat Duh, With a tattoo of a Legendary on my right shoulder blade, and a cosplay picture of an alolan Vulpix in the side bar, is there any doubt that Pokemon would be on my list. You are traveling the world, capturing pocket monsters and bettering yourself against Gym trainers, its' totally a JRPG, and if you don't think so FIght me!

Pokemon-Sun-and-Moon-1.jpg

- Root Letter: I feel like Visual Novels would definitely fall into this list, and with the next four games all belonging to the Ps Vita, I feel like definitely fit the bill. You follow a character trying to solve a mystery, after years of not hearing from his pen pal, he comes across a new letter, unpostmarked on his shelf, and thus starts the mission of trying to find her. Only when he gets to her villaige does he find out that she's been dead for years.

Dangangronpa: A group of extraordinary students are admitted to an elite high school, only to find out that the principal is a homicidal teddy bear, adn the only way out of this hell school is to murder one of the other students and not get caught, what more could I want right?

- Bad Apple Wars: A school in heaven is split between two sets of students, those who assimilate and follow all the rules until they eventually lose everything that made them unique, and the "Bad Apples" who fight to find a way to escape and keep their uniqueness.

- Bravely Default: One of the most beautiful JRPG's I've ever played in my life. This game belongs on the list even though I've been stuck in the same place for the past year and a half and it has turn based mechanics, I've been playing on and off for a while. You can chose different abilities which will decide your fate and path. You can be a monk, or a witch or any of the other options, and it makes the game a very enjoyable experience, even if you play thorugh multiple times.

- Professor Layton: Because DUH.  With a tattoo on my inner wrist, there's no reason Hershel shouldn't be on my list. I own every game, every OST, and I've seen the movie. You follow Layton and his apprentice Luke, as he travels the world and solves mysteries through puzzles. Very challenging, very fun! Highly recommend.

Comics #34: Nancy Drew #1 Spoiler Free

 Hey Gang!

  I talk about Nancy Drew all the time, as one of my favorite fictional detectives I am always on the lookout for new material. I've currently been reading through her Case Files Series. so when I found out that Dynamite was giving us a Nancy Drew series written by Kelly Thompson and illustrated by Jenn St-Onge, I, A knew I had to read it and B, definitely wanted to pick Jenn's brain about the series. You can read that interview here.

nancytarr.jpg

  I just finished the review for Issue 2 on Comicosity which went out last Wednesday, so I thought I would write about the first issue here. As soon as I saw the cover in Previews, I knew this was a comic I was going to want to read. Now that I’ve actually read it, I can’t wait to tell you why I was right.

This issue is great at introducing the cast of characters that are going to be in the series. So even if you’ve somehow never heard of Nancy Drew and her friends, you will not be lost in the shuffle. We find Nancy Drew, hanging on a rope, holding onto a goat, I was already hooked.

The art is bright and vibrant without being overtly peppy, which isn’t this Nancy’s vibe.  I think St-Onge did an amazing job of bringing Nancy into a more modern time. I love her style and think it will inspire quite a few cosplays in the future.

The story doesn’t take long to take off like a locomotive, so I was very excited about that. Nancy receives a very ominous anonymous letter made of magazine cut outs on the anniversary of her mother’s death which brings her back to a place, she didn’t think she would visit again.

I give this issue a 10 out of 10, it gave us a bit of backstory, introduced new characters well, and has intrigued me to get the next issue for the rest of the mystery. I can’t wait.

Series #56: New Game Season 2 SPOILERS

 Hey Gang.

 I finished New Game last night, and the only thing I really have to say is WHY ARE THEY TRYING TO MAKE ME SO FUCKING SAD?! This post contains spoilers for the season, please don’t read any further if you haven’t watched all the episodes. If you are caught up forever, please read beyond the page break so you can feel all the feels with me. 

newg1.jpg

  Season two brings two new characters into the group. Momijichan the art intern who joins because she’d admired Yagami’s work. She brings along her best friend Narucchi who is a programmer. We also see Sakura return as a debugging hire, instead of a contractor. I was so looking forward to more Sakura and Umiko interaction, but there isn’t much to find in the episodes leading to the end of the season. 

  In this season, they’ve decided on a fantasy game about a little girl who can control stuffed animals to do her bidding, and a character named Peco who has the ability to use different powers, when wearing different animalesque costumes, which by itself would be absolutely adorable, but there are different bosses and ideas created and implemented by different members of the crew which made it even more awesome. 

newg2.png

 I really am sad, that none of these games actually exist, because I would love the chance to play Peco. This anime actually gave me flack for not trying more video games that I’ve come across, and has inspired me to play more, explore more, and write more. No point in staying complacent, when video games and technology is constantly changing around you. 

  This season was very much about the crews interactions with each other. The new girls feeling around for a spot on the team, worrying about whether they are competent enough to stay. Aoba using more of her skill set as she was chosen to be the Character Designer for Peco. We saw her doubt herself, push herself and ultimately rise to the occasion. We also got to see Yun sans, monsters in action which was pretty awesome. 

newg4.jpg

 Hifumi became the Character Team Leader, which was great because it helped slightly with her people phobia, and got her to open up a little more. I was excited because she’s one of my favorite characters and although she didn’t necessarily talk more, she had a lot more screen time! I really love that she uses the chat messenger to talk to her crew, and make sure things are going according to plan. 

 I really hope there’s another season because two wasn’t enough for me, and the finale made my heart hurt in a way that only another season can fix. The gang completes the game, even after a snafu occurs in which an entire section of code needs to be re-written and debugged. On the pre-release day, Yumiko introduces Aoba onto the stage, so that the press can meet, the hear and brains behind the operation, as she will be leaving and heading to France to work on a new game, and learn from the experience. 

newg5.jpg

 Yumiko leaving and all of the girls telling her how she made them feel, and how she inspired them, definitely pulled on my heart strings and I definitely cried. It just felt like the end of an era, even though KO was such an important character for the show and the other characters growth and development. This season was definitely all about the teams growth, although they still haven’t grown enough to know when they’ve had too much alcohol.
