He's apparently getting his New 52 origin featured in the upcoming Justice League: War animated movie. Their animated stuff is so much better so I would just stick to those until they can actually make a good movie without Batman or Superman.

This thread is almost as entertaining as the Quick Look it's based off of. Almost, not quite. I come to most of Giant Bomb's video coverage with essentially two expectations. One is to see video games, and two is to laugh. That Quick Look delivered on both fronts in spades. Jeff is the master when it comes to making video games look way more ridiculous than they really are. Ya learn to relish the strange era in which we live. All he really needs to do is focus on cracking up Brad and it's instant comedy gold. If it offends Hatsune Miku fans that it made me laugh then I apologize. To make it up to you I brought you White Mask With Tongue. PUT IT ON!
Sadly I'm not even going to be awake for the stream today. :( Just need to have confidence that the archived video will be as good as last episode. It will most likely be even better now that character creation is out of the way.
I just finished watching Pokemon Origins episode 1........... OMG DA NOSTALGIA!!!!!!!!!
All 90s pokemon fans (Blue/red) should watch this anime. The attention to detail is incredible. The anime weirdly enough plays out exactly like you playing the old games back in the day as dumb kids. Like, catching a bunch of pokemon right off the bat yet not training them promptly, fighting brock with a fire pokemon for the first time and getting trashed because of the attribute system, and lots more goodies.
It was beautiful. And better yet, its a bit more mature. The fights are more violent and the dialogue is more straight-forward.
People, give it a load. I almost passed on it but it's truly a beautiful tribute. :D
Watched this yesterday and I'm happy to report this post is accurate. Didn't think I could find a Pokemon cartoon entertaining again at my age but that mini series nails that nostalgia factor so hard. Probably one of the best video game adaptations in animation I've seen in recent years or maybe ever. It gets a tad ludicrous near the end but hey that comes with the territory of being anime right? They even handle the music cues almost flawlessly.
Watched episode 2 of Gundam Build Fighters. Holy crap that show is one of the stupidest things ever but at least the robot fights look good. I feel myself being dragged back into the more masochistic side of anime watching because of it. Hajime No Ippo is still spectacular.
I don't touch the stuff personally. The people who are into it seem hopelessly addicted from an outsider perspective. I will say that if you're a parent then I don't see why you wouldn't drink coffee. My brother doesn't drink it either and he has a daughter but no job...
Damn right it's relaxing. I'm still an amateur who mostly plays rhythm sections even after many years but it sure does feel good to pluck away on my guitar every once in a while. I was really into punk rock and ska when I was first learning so those are all super easy to just belt out when I need to vent some frustration. For something more soothing I like to go with Dynamite Hack's instrumental of Boyz In The Hood.
Also love me some classic rock tunes as well. You pretty much can't go wrong with stuff like The Weight by The Band, Peace Of Mind by Boston, or Boat On The River by Styx for maximizing your Chill-tober. So yeah playing guitar is super relaxing and it's a hell of a lot cheaper than cigarettes.
People still use Gamespot? Well I guess you have to go somewhere for reviews of anime games. For coverage of PC games and indie darlings, make mine Giant Bomb.
Freaking awesome. Trying to forget his passing is a fool's errand when stuff like this happens. I miss you Ryan.
I had a good laugh with this and for that I thank you. Wouldn't mind seeing more portable systems get added. Plenty of characters left over for the various GBA's, Neo-Geo Pocket and Sega Nomad.
Over the weekend I decided to dive head first into the new season of sports. Anime sports that is. This, is A-sports. Hajime No Ippo: Rising had a fantastic premiere. It started with the true origin story which was genuinely touching. The fighting portions were great as usual and they left it on one hell of a cliffhanger. Checked out Diaya No Ace and was not really feeling it. We have enough Sun Wukong parables in pop culture to last a lifetime and that's a poor path for this protagonist to take right out of the gate. I might not be so down on it if past baseball shows didn't have such diverse and interesting main characters. None of the humor really landed for me either. Also jumped into Kuroko No Basket without having seen the first season. That first episode was a bit too laid back for my tastes. Not a fan of that anime hair either.
Finally I watched Gundam Build Fighters of all things. I can't decide if that show is really stupid or just incredible. Maybe both. On one hand it lets fans see dream matches between mobile suits from different continuities without resorting to something silly like SD Gundam designs. On the other hand the character designs are horrible, the plot is lame and cliche, and the the premise itself is super exploitative. Are they rearing up for some kind of Skylanders style product line if it doesn't exist already? I will say I couldn't help but chuckle at the cameo from Ramba Ral but I don't see many redeeming qualities about this show long term. Other than that it's Teen Titans Go and Bobs Burgers that I watch for hearty laughter. They never fail to deliver.
