TWD S7 SDCC Trailer....Ligers and Wolves and Walkers OHHH MY!

This trailer is crazy, it makes me want to go watch the season 6 finale....still haven't seen the last episode, was planning on watching directly before the season 7 premiere.
I think we all know who's cranium Lucy made sweet love to... but the show does tend to deviate from the graphic novel from time to time...
Anyway this trailer is bonkers!

Justice League Special Comic-Con Footage

Watch: Comic-Con ‘Justice League’ Trailer Featuring Aquaman and The Flash The trailer for Zack Snyder’s DC superhero team-up, which features the first look at Ezra Miller’s The Flash, Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, and Ray Fisher’s Cyborg. “I believe that an enemy is coming, from far away… I’m looking for warriors.” So sayeth Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne, who’s been charged with assembling a superteam of DC Comics’ heroes to battle an unknown villain. Yes, the very first trailer for Zack Snyder’s answer to Marvel’s The Avengers, the upcoming Justice League film, debuted at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and from the look of it, appears to have addressed some of the tonal deficiencies of his terribly grim Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice—thanks in large part to the wise-cracking appearance of Ezra Miller’s Barry Allen/The Flash, who exchanges some fun banter with Batfleck. The film, which hits theaters November 17, 2017, also boasts Jason Momoa’s (Khal Drogo!) Aquaman, who we glimpse for the first time in the special Comic-Con footage, as well as Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Amber Heard as Mera, and a very diesel J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. We don’t get to see Simmons, Adams, or even Henry Cavill’s Superman in the trailer—as well as Jared Leto’s Joker and Jesse Eisenberg’s Lex Luthor, who reportedly make appearances in the film—but it’s a nice little teaser that seems, well, far less grim than its predecessor. Watch it here: Published on Jul 23, 2016 In theaters November 2017

Rogue One Panel at Star Wars Celebration

I've been saying since 2014 I'm more hyped for Rogue One than Episode VII TFA, and after seeing the Rogue One Celebration Reel I can say with certainty I'm definitely more hyped for Rogue One!

Gareth Edwards says something during the reel that really surprised me, and the first person  I thought of was JJ Abrams.
"If you're too respectful of it (StarWars) and don't do anythingnew or different and take a risk then what are you bringing to the table".
That basically reiterated my (and many others) frustrations with TFA. Now whether that was a dig at JJ or a calculated line fed to him by Disney/LFL due to the negative backlash against the lack of originality in TFA may never be known.
So Gwendoline Christie (CA Phasma) hosted this panel and it felt a bit awkward, basically the entire cast was unsure just how much they were allowed to talk about, but it was enjoyable and seeing K2S0 drop Jyn's bag was hilarious. Gareth seemed extremely comfortable up there next to Kathleen Kennedy and it showed just how much of a fan he is of the franchise.
The entire cast is amazing,
Felicity Jones: Jyn Erso
Forest Witaker: Saw Gerrera Wookiepedia Saw_Gerrera
Mads Mikkelsen: Galen Erso
Ben Mendelsohn: Orson Krennic
Donnie Yen: Chirrut Imwe
Alan Tudyk: K2S0
Diego Luna: Cassian Andor
Riz Ahmed: Bodhi Rook
Jiang Wen: Baze Wen
Genevieve O'Reilly: Mon Mothma

December 16, 2016 will be a day long remembered

EVO 2016 Finals on ESPN Esports is real folks

I've been playing Street Fighter longer than some of the players at EVO have been alive, and seeing this franchise evolve from it's humble inception with the original Street Fighter (yes I played SF in the arcades....Adventures in Cross County Shopping Center in Yonkers) in 1987 to becoming a World Wide phenomenon that single handedly ushered in the the Fighting Game Genre in 1991 with Street Fighter II and staved off the death of Arcades in America, to the inception of EVO (B3) in 1996 to the EVO Finals being broadcast on ESPN2 this year! This is very exciting to me since I've been with this franchise since day 1!
I actually got my wife and son to watch the Finals with me and I was worried it would seem amateurish to those who don't know anything about Esports or Fighting Games but I have to congratulate Ryan Gutierrez, Mike Ross and Seth Killian for doing an outstanding job hosting the Finals! And Congrats to Infiltration, Fuudo, Yukadon, GO-1, LI Joe, MOV, Nemo and Eita!


The Highlight for me was LI Joe, even my wife was hyped during these matches!

This one was a nail biter!
