1. Get your hands on Fortune Tix against Classic Vega #3 for 250 FM participation fee

2. [Q&I] Get the Mecha Zangief Crossover Costume #3 for 2500 FM participation fee

This week I ended up with 3,300 FM. I'm passed on the Mecha Geif Crossover Costume....I don't play Geif enough to justify the FM,  and I passed on Triggered Necalli for a title. I did fight classic Vega for a  Fortune Ticket, so I spent 250FM on that.

As always keep fighting the good fight. Be smart with your FM don't complain about the XBM golden soldiers and "Shin" versions of characters because the alternative is Capcom charging RM for all DLC characters.

Dark Phoenix | Official Trailer

In DARK PHOENIX, the X-MEN face their most formidable and powerful foe: one of their own, Jean Grey. During a rescue mission in space, Jean is nearly killed when she is hit by a mysterious cosmic force. Once she returns home, this force not only makes her infinitely more powerful, but far more unstable. Wrestling with this entity inside her, Jean unleashes her powers in ways she can neither comprehend nor contain. With Jean spiraling out of control, and hurting the ones she loves most, she begins to unravel the very fabric that holds the X-Men together. Now, with this family falling apart, they must find a way to unite -- not only to save Jean's soul, but to save our very planet from aliens who wish to weaponize this force and rule the galaxy.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Trailer or Dear Disney this is how to create a cohesive connected story over multiple generations with a clear beginning and conclusion......

The first movie felt very self contained, but after seeing this trailer I'm seeing some very fascinating connective tissue! Are we witnessing the seeds of Voldemort being sewn? Did we just see Nagini?
Who's the woman sitting next to Credence Barebone? Are these two Tom Riddle's Parents? Is this Grindelward's plan to create Voldemort?
How does the legend of the Deathly Hallows fit into this movie.
After seeing this trailer I'm really looking forward to seeing this movie.
Unfortunately my son who absolutely loved the Harry potter films didn't enjoy the first Fantastic Beasts film...he fell asleep.
So it might be a struggle to get him to join me to see this one.

One Trailer can make a difference!

I have given all my G1 Transformer's toys to my son (except Shockwave and Jetfire) I grew up watching the original series, I watched  the first two Bayformers then opted out of that stupidity. I intoduced my son to transformers with rescue bots and when he was a few years older I showed him TF Prime and he was hooked...a little too much. And most recently we watched Transformers Combiner Wars which was well done for a Youtube series!
Anywho I'm a firm believer that Anime and stuff like Transformers doesn't need to be translated into live action, they're essentially the same genre!
When I saw the first trailer for this Bumblebee Movie I instantly passed on it, now I just saw the "NEW" official trailer (WTF does that mean?) and I might have to go with my son to see this in the theaters afterall......


Can someone please confirm Michael Bay has no involvement in this movie!

A Retrospective of Skill Karin and Cammy 2016-2018

I was watching the Punk V Bonchan match from SCR today and it got me wondering how much have I improved from 2016, so I dug thru the archives on my channel and found my first match against my buddy BlueEyedDemon and his Cammy and my most recent match against him.
THEN 4/10/16
 

NOW 9/23/18


 Did you spot the Zenny symbol in the first video! lmao!
And how about that Roster size? So many snowflakes complaining about the roster size at launch! There is a benefit to a smaller roster size in the beginning, it'll take less time to find the character that works best for you.
And look at all those wonderful stages!

Kill la Kill TGS 2018 Gameplay Trailer

Back in the PS1 days I dabbled in a wider variety of fighting games, Battle Arena Toshshinden, Soul Caliber, MK, but my favorite franchise has always been Street Fighter. I even played Ranma 1/2 on the NES waaaaay back in the day! This generation has seen a semi resurgence in fighting games, Tekken 7, Dragonball FighterZ, Injustice 2, MK XL, KoFXIV, Soul Calibur 6, and SFV, (sorry MVC:I). I've really only played Street Fighter V this generation, I never was that hyped for DBZ and the only other fighting game that I'd like to get is Soul Calibur 6 until I heard about the Kill la Kill game coming! Below is the TGS gameplay trailer...
The game is obviously in it's alpha stage as there was only 4 selectable characters Ryuko, Satsuki, Uzu and Ira and 2 stages to choose from.
There's 4 bars below the characters health bar that build as you take damage and for now it appears the health bars don't reset after beating the opponent. There also appears to be some sort of "clash system" when the two characters attack simultaneously in close proximity. 
Now I watched the Kill la Kill all the way thru, but I think the Anime has a "cult following" and never went mainstream, the anime probably turned off a few snowflakes out there. What I'm getting at is this is one fighting game that could benefit from a Story mode.
I'd love to see what type of rating the ESRB is gonna give Kill la Kill! I REALLY doubt it's gonna get E rating.

Star Wars A New Hope Anime Fan Trailer

Why is it that I felt something from this trailer MADE BY A FAN, and not from either of the Resistance trailers we've gotten so far?
Ahriman has taken two of my favorite things from my childhood, Old School Anime and the Original Star Wars and made something very special! See for yourself!
