  1. Out of all the possible video game news that could get me excited in 2020, I wasn't expecting StarCraft: Ghost. An Xbox build of the game has leaked. I remember being very interested in the game back in the day; and it's surreal to see new footage of it. Definitely looking dated and clunky, but damn, it's just cool to see. Now somebody leak Dead Phoenix.
  2. That shoe is a poor distraction from the fact that a man has fallen into the river in Lego City.
  3. When I think live action movie dubs, I think of the old Kaiju movies. I'd recommend ADV's Lake Texarkana Gamera, a gag dub of Gamera 2: Attack of the Legion.
  4. Now we need a version of that gif with the goose stealing the wooden spoon.
  5. OK, so Gone Home is a walking simulator, which is like Myst, a graphic adventure, which is like Metroid Prime, a first person adventure, which is like Doom, a first person shooter, which are now Wolfendooms. Got it!
  6. Being a first person adventure, does this genre change retroactively make Myst a Wolfendoom?
  7. I could attempt to stimulate discussion on another matter, but it wouldn't be about anything current. So far this year, I've watched Di Gi Charat, Yozakura Quartet and Panyo Panyo Di Gi Charat. I'm about 13 episodes into Code Geass, which I'm enjoying so far. The last anime I watched last year was Madlax. I had seen the other 2/3 of Bee Train's girls-with-guns trilogy, Noir and El Cazador de Le Bruja, about 15 and 10 years ago, respectively. For whatever reason, I had not watched Madlax. I have since remedied that problem, and enjoyed the show, but damn, you know a show is old when the first episode involves a floppy disk. Noir and Madlax were both localized by ADV. ADV created a parody "Sock Puppet Theater" episode for both shows, which could be accessed as an Easter Egg on their initial DVD releases. It's brilliantly stupid. El Cazador, which was localized by Funimation, does not feature any sock puppets, but it has a song about tacos.
  8. I don't know, at the end of the day, people are still out of a job. While there is no doubt in my mind that those voice actors will be voice acting again soon enough, just as those translators will be translating and editors editing, this still means a lot of people are going without a paycheck, at least temporarily. Which, regardless of what one thinks of the show, sucks.
  9. Beat: Gal Metal, Switch Updated through this post.
  10. And considering some of the shit Funimation happily associates with their brand, this is saying something. After all, we're talking about the company that localized and dubbed Master of Martial Hearts.
  11. I highly doubt that Interspecies Reviewers would have been generating the same amount of buzz if Funimation was continuing to simulcast and dub it. The mere act of stopping brings a lot of attention to the series. There are going to be people who check out the series to see why falls outside Funimation's standards. If something is controversial, people often seek it out to see what the buzz is all about.
  12. Out of all possible outcome, I certainly wasn't expecting a Nice Boat reboot.
  13. Dark patterns are all-too-common in mobile games, particularly free-to-play mobile games, and the way the FEH has been implemented is a pretty textbook example of the psychological manipulation you can see in these titles. These dark patterns are nothing new in FEH, and they're pretty par for the course for games like this, I just don't like seeing Nintendo being so in-your-face with it.
  14. This is a legitimate possibility. The account it is coming from joined Twitter in July 2019, isn't following anyone and has zero followers. This is also the account's only tweet. Years ago, Stone Cold Steve Austin had a t-shirt that said "Arrive. Raise Hell. Leave." This is kind of like that in tweet form. Take an unused account. drop a tweet to stir some shit, and watch what happens.
