Netflix Animated Series Seis Manos.....this ain't my Saturday Morning Cartoon Series!

This was a great 8 episode series about 3 orphans in a small Mexican town, San Simon that are swept up in an occult criminal organization's bid for power.
Like the Title of this post says this show looks like something I would've seen on Saturday mornings as a kid but it's really not! One of the 3 orphans at Chiu's Dojo is named Silencio....not because he's shy! Yeah...that's some dark shit for an animated show! The show masterfully balances the dark aspects and the lighter side with humor that doesn't pull you out of the moment. There are 2 characters that deliver the chuckles, Jesus, another of the 3 orphans who's the "Lunk" type who appreciates the cerveza's....think of Jackie Chan's Drunken Master movie.
Then there's Brister, a DEA agent sent to San Simon, the shit that comes outta this guys mouth had me rolling! The best way to describe Brister is Dave Chappelle's personality in Michael Clarke Duncan's body.
One of the things I appreciated most about the show was the fact that almost every character was more than one dimensional! Almost no one is who they initially appear to be!
The animation Studio is the same that is doing the Castlevania Netflix series, Powerhouse Studio's, I really like the style, they excel in the blood and gore and horrific aesthetic....if you're into that.
It's eight episodes long and the series concludes with a clear open end for season 2!

Netflix Sturgill Simpson Presents Sound and Fury

I've never listened to Sturgill Simpson, but this "AMV" has piqued my interest!
So I was looking for something to watch last night on Netflix and this popped up, and it instantly grabbed my attention with it's post apocalyptic Americana,  Mad Max imagery and the soundtrack that fit perfectly.
Yes there's a political message in here but I'm just so tired of all the politics and agenda's and bullshit I simply watched S&F for the entertainment factor and it delivers.
So if you're looking for something that will please your optics and audio receptors check out Sturgill Simpson presents Sound and Fury.

TGS 2019 Capcom's commitment to E-Sports Presentation

No new info regarding SFV but the President reiterates their commitment to e-sports and SFV to be involved in the Intel World Open .
I'm curious how this "commitment" will affect the Street Fighter Franchise as SFV's life span is nearing the end of it's plan. Season 4 will be concluding December 15th at Capcom cup and 2020 will, what many believe be SFV's final season. So should we expect Capcom to reveal SFVI at the conclusion of the Intel World Tour July 24th 2020? It seems like a no brainer to me, everyone will be tuning in for the opening ceremony of the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.....talk about fantastic exposure!

TGS 2019 Castlevania Grimoire of Souls Trailer

I'm still playing Castlevania Anniversary Collection and have yet to play Bloodstained: RotN, and looking forward to hearing some news regarding Netflix 3rd season of their Castlevania animated series! Now Konami drops the trailer for CastleVania: Grimoire of Souls which looks really impressive and has some rather unique multiplayer game play modes...but the game is only for mobile devices!!!!
COME ON KONAMI GET YOUR HEADS OUT OF YOUR ASSES!!!!

TGS 2019 Death Stranding Trailer and Gameplay Video

Death Stranding is only 58 days away and despite all the gorgeous trailers and deep dives into the rabbit hole I'm starting to wonder if what we see is what we're getting. On face value the game looks like a 21st century hiking simulator.
So graphics are a 10, it looks like some of the MGSV assets were reused when they showed Sam fighting some NPC's, the story still has me scratching my head. The level of detail as great as it is might become tedious for a game that has you traveling across America to "connect" the people.
I have to believe Kojima will not disappoint when it comes to the story, but as of right now all I can say is the game looks spectacular.

TGS 2019 FFVII Remake Trailer

3/3/2020 can't come soon enough!
This game is looking so gorgeous! I cannot believe it's been 23 years since Final Fantasy VII originally launched on the PS1! God I feel old!! I remember skimming thru EGM to check out the screen shots of FFVII at the Software Ect in Cross County and feeling the same hype I'm feeling now after seeing this trailer.

Star Wars Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker D23 "trailer"


I bet when 2/3 of the Titanic was already submerged the crew got frantic and just started coming up with all kinds of cockamamie idea's...we can see this in the D23 "trailer" for TRoS...
First off literally 56 seconds of this "trailer" is nothing but a reminder of better times....before Disney. Thanks for the trip down nostalgia lane but I thought you wanted us to "let the past die, kill it if we have to". And how did you respond to criticism of TLJ from fans like myself???

And the rest is just....cockamamie








Are we supposed to believe C-3PX is gonna be in RotS, or is this confirmation of the recent plot leak the C-3PO mistakenly uploads the memory unit of an old combat droid. It wasn't funny in AotC, it certainly won't be funny now.




Image result for attack of the clones c 3po attack droid


So Rey is a Sith Temple Guard?? Nice connection to Rebels, but futile. the writers of BVS pale in comparison to Dave Filoni, the prodigal son of the Maker!
















There's a difference between thematic juxtaposition for story telling purpose and control C, control V. I don't think Jar Jar realizes this!
I fear this trilogy was rushed out with out a clear story planned, character development planned out and has not connected to kids my son's age. The ST has created a rift in the fandom as far apart in opinion as the Jedi and Sith philosophies and only a master who knows all the aspects of the force can reunite the fandom! Clearly the person IS NOT Kathleen Kennedy!
I propose a vote of no confidence in Kathleen Kennedy, and propose Dave Filoni be considered as the new Chancelor of Lucasfilm!

The Mandalorian | Official Trailer


Bounty hunting is a complicated profession.

After the stories of Jango and Boba Fett, another warrior emerges in the Star Wars universe. “The Mandalorian” is set after the fall of the Empire and before the emergence of the First Order. We follow the travails of a lone gunfighter in the outer reaches of the galaxy far from the authority of the New Republic.



 



The Mandalorian, an original Star Wars series, starts streaming November 12, only on #DisneyPlus.

D23 Expo Obi Wan Kenobi LIVES! On D+

Well hello there...
The ST has been a bit disappointing, but this puts a smile on my face!
The D23 Expo has not disappointed so far, I'm already so excited for The Mandalorian and now we have Ewan McGregor returning as Obi Wan Kenobi! When Solo failed at the B.O. and Iger reported that Disney was going to slow the Star Wars franchise machine down and the often rumored Kenobi film was axed many fans, myself included cried out and were suddenly silenced.
But alas a New Hope has been born with Ewan Kenobi and D+!

We did get a good look at the updated Star Wars "canonical" time line, and according to this Luke will be roughly 6-7 years old during the show, Maul is out there, possibly on Dathomir building the Crimson Dawn crime syndicate. This is roughly 8 years before Maul is found on Malachor. And 13 years before Maul meets his final demise at the hands of Obi Wan Kenobi on Tatooine.
I pray this show delivers. I'll be watching this shows development with great interest!

Love and Hate the FGC VS The Gun Violence blame game


Here we go again!
Another mass shooting in America, 2 actually and here comes the blame game from politicians....
I've been playing Video games since the Atari 2600, I've played Street Fighter since 1987 and many many other games that are "violent". I guess I'm waaaay overdue for a egregious act of violence!
Yes I get salty when I lose a match in Street Fighter...It's a competitive game and I'm competitive in nature...I like to win, who doesn't?
 But the video game industry seems like an easy scapegoat to the talking heads, there's been an abundant number of case studies to prove Video games do not "make" people violent to the point they go into public places and unload a semi automatic rifle or blow up buildings with people!!!
Evo 2019 is coming to a close and this year Yoshinori Ono a veteran producer at Capcom who loves attending the World's premiere fighting game tournament and share his love of Street Fighter with all the attendees with a hearty SHORYUKEN and a trailer for new content.
But as mentioned this years announcement leaked early on Steam and Ono was so defeated he tweeted that he didn't even want to go to EVO this year.
I just want to show the love that the FGC has when united, yeah we play games that involve violence but there's a heart and a level of unity that resonates stronger than all these violent atrocities that politicians want to blame video games for.
I think the government needs to look elsewhere for the cause. It seems America isn't the top consumer of video games but God Damn we EXCEL at gun violence!!!!

Hype Train derailed days before departure!

8 months we've been waiting and today Steam leaked the trailer for the first 3 characters, are you serious?! This is ridiculous, Kage was leaked hours prior @ Capcom Cup and now the next 3 characters leaked  DAYS before EVO. These 3 characters are MONTHS late and for those of us who have been holding out hope that there was something coming this great news but there's something in my mind saying "that's it?". There has to be something else that caused Capcom to fall into radio silence for 8 months! If this was an executive decision to delay these characters and not keep open lines of communication someone needs to be fired.
I guess we'll find out Sunday night if there's "Much More" for us.
Now as far as the 3 characters are concerned
Honda: Meh some people will be glad he finally made it, others will be like why the F did you fuck up Vega and Birdie and leave Honda unchanged!
Lucia: Well X-Kira was absolutely right, NO ONE would've guessed this character from Final Fight 3 was coming!
Poison: Shoulda just made it Roxy, but regardless he's back. I like the whip swing, the Belmonts are impressed!
I have to admit if that's all we're getting regarding season 4 I'm not feeling any excitement at all!
So these 3 will be available on the 4th for $5.99 or 100k FM each or you can get em all on the 5th for $14.99 and save $2.98 that you can put towards Honda's Stage which costs $3.99 or 70k FM.

EVO 2019 and the fate of SFV

Another year another EVO approaches in 6 days, and what many in the FGC are wondering what does Capcom have in store for Street Fighter V? I've been playing SFV since launch and I have to admit, for the last month I really haven't felt much of an urge to play. Herein lies the problem with games as a service plan! When the players get accustomed to scheduled updates with new content and then the updates just go on hiatus the player base losses interest regardless if the game is solid and has plenty of content. Since it's launch there was a plan for updates and new content which was relatively reliable....until season 3 concluded


Dec 16th 2018 with Capcom Cup. It's now almost August 2019, 8 months later and we've got 1 new DLC character a shotoclone-clone, Kage. And a some random DLC like Field of Fate,  Ring of Justice, Suzaku Castle @ night (should be free if you bought the Suzaku Stage @ day DLC!), Kage monocle costume, and Sagat dew rag costume which is included in the CPT 2019 bundle, and a couple crossover costumes like Katt for Falke, Shade for Sagat, Devilotte for Menat.

This time last year we had Sakura in Jan, Blanka in Feb, Falke in April, Cody in June! And Sagat AND G released August 18th!
So I understand why so many have said SFV is "dead", Capcom isn't doing themselves any favors by going radio silent these last 7 months.
The question in my mind is HOW?
HOW will Ono and the SFV dev team resuscitate SFV?
HOW many characters are we getting revealed Sunday August 4th?
HOW much new content will we be getting, HOW much will this cost?
HOW will players be able to purchase the new characters aside from real money since FM seems to be a dead form of E-currency?
With PS5 launching holiday 2020 HOW can Ono say he doesn't have any SFVI news for EVO 2019....

FORCE OF DARKNESS fan film Kylo Ren VS Darth Vader

Admit it you wanna see this face off, the ST has been depressing lackluster when it comes to GOOD light saber fights!
Rian Johnson should have consulted with these guys, there was way too much "So You Think You Can Dance" with the Praetorian guards Vs Rey & Kylo in TLJ!

SFV AE Weekly Missions and Extra Battle Mode for 6/21/19 - 6/28/19

This week’s missions can net you 1300FM. Subtract the cost of the second Shade Crossover costume and the Crossover BGM if you haven't gotten it yet and the Fortune Tix fight and you'll end up with -2700FM




After completing the weekly missions, head over to the eXtra Battle Mode, this week we have:


1. Get your hands on Fortune Tix against Sagat #4 for 250FM participation fee









2. [Quick and Immovable] Get the Crossover Costume #4 for Sagat (Shade from Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness) for 2500FM participation fee.






3. Get the Crossover BGM! Helion Theme from Cyberbots: Fullmetal Madness for 1000FM






I've pretty much given up on Fighting Chance and the stupid Fortune tix thing, it's a FM sink in a FM recession! Oh and coming June 25th we're getting a "new" stage! The SF II CE Ryu Stage, Suzaku Castle at Night....




Soooo I have some questions (the same ones as everyone else)
1. Why?
2. If I bought the Suzaku Castle stage do you expect me to drop either 2 bucks or 40K FM for a reskinned stage?
3. What FM do you think we have? I've been a miser with my FM so I could afford it via FM but again, why should I have to pay for a reskinned Stage?




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

Google proves it doesn't understand the Video Game Industry

Google has done some amazing shit over the years, they are the only viable search engine....it's not like you ever hear someone say let me Bing that,  Gmail, G+ (RIP), but what I just watched makes me wonder "Do they understand the Video Game Industry at all?" 
I understand that the end of the age of Video Game Consoles is approaching and I'm not sure anyone knows how to move forward.
I'm gonna sound like an old fart but when I was a kid watching TV required you to get up and physically turn it on, there was seven channels 2,4,5,7,9, 11 and 13. We didn't need a TV provider, the electricity used by the TV went into the electric bill....SIMPLE. Then Cable came around and the Home Box Office was born...Cable was considered a luxury at first but soon became common (like all things like traveling on trains and aircraft) and for the most part it was an improvement.
Fast forward to 2019...the 21st Century, the FUTCHA! I now pay Verizon over 100 bucks a month for access to the Internet, and the ability to watch TV (over 100 channels! but so bloated with utter shit), I pay AT&T every month so my Iphone doesn't turn into an Ipod at the stroke of midnight,  I also pay Netflix $15.00 /mo to gain access to there vast library of movies and shows via their streaming service. But there's other Streaming services out there that offer original content and movies and shows that Netflix doesn't have.....they cost a monthly fee also. And this fall Disney will be opening shop with D+ streaming service so we can watch all their proprietary content starting at a comfy $6.99 a month! Then there's the 60 bucks a year I pay to Sony so I can play multiplayer online games on my PS4 with PS+ (but they sweeten the deal by giving me free games to download each month (some crap some AAA).

Ok so you get the point, everyone's got their hand in my wallet and my wallet only holds so much money. So I gotta be sure I'm spending it on what I truly want as far as entertainment is concerned. And I believe that goes for most gamers around the world. I've been a gamer since the beginning of the second generation, back when complete games came on cartridges that were stuck in big ass consoles as time went on consoles began to evolve, they began to look like they belonged in a home theater set up and less like a childs toy. Games evolved also from cartridges to CD's, to DVD's to UMD's to BD's, we're now in a transitional period where games are available to buy digitally. At the beginning of the current (8th) generation I was very skeptical of purchasing games digitally because of the whole DRM drama Microsoft created when introducing the XBone @ E3. I still wanted to be able to share my games with friends and vice versa which could only be done via physical copies of the game. So here I am days before E3 2019 and the majority of my library this generation is digital.
In my mind I've payed for something and I own something, I can't touch it or trade it but it's on my 7 TB external HDD....so I "own" it. My only concern is will I be able to play it years from now?? I know if I hooked up my NES and threw Golgo 13 in it would work (after some vigorous blowing).
So that leads me to what I just watched on You tube....Google showcasing the Stadia video game console streaming service....I'm gonna recap the points I feels will be Stadia's downfall.
Stadia is a streaming game service, meaning you don't own anything but a controller and a Chromecast dongle, what does the controller connect to? can't charge a wireless controller without a console to connect to....guess you need AA or AAA batteries? So the initial $130 investment for Stadia Pro is for a controller and a Chromecast dongle???
If you're streaming Games you never actually "own" the game, it's coming from Googles servers via the Chromecast dongle to your device, How are you "buying" anything? That's like Netflix charging the $15.00 /mo for the service then charging the MSRP of the movie to view it......GET THE FUCK OUTTA HERE!!!
Sony has PS Now....their first foray into streaming games service, so for a monthly subscription you'll have access to HUNDREDS of games from the Playstation's vast library, you can also download the game to the console similar to how Netflix allows users to DL certain movies and games, but once that subscription ends so does your access to the game....you don't ever "own" the game.
So if you want to "own" the game you can go to the Playstation Store and buy it and DL it to either the console's HDD or an external HDD.
Google Stadia appears to be strictly a streaming service so what exactly are you buying?
Anyway this Post is getting a bit too lengthy what do you think? Will Google's Stadia be succesful or will it exit stage left and be greeted by the Jaguar, Lynx, Neo Geo and Ouya and 3Do with open arms?

Death Stranding....I still have no idea what this game is about! And it's becoming very frustrating!!!!

First off the image I used totally encompasses the deafening WTF roar of the entire gaming community....nice job!
I'm sorry but this trailer doesn't clarify anything, the game is still shrouded in secrecy. The story makes no sense, and the game-play looks extremely similar to a certain Tactical Espionage Action game that relies on stealth. There is a YT channel, The Tomb Portable that had some convincing video's theorizing that Death Stranding might actually be MGS0 but they haven't posted anything recently which could mean 1 of 2 things he's abandoned his theory or Kojima Productoins asked him to STFU because they were right.
I want to support Hideo because of all the BS Konami put him thru but this trailer really doesn't help sell this game to the masses and all the beautiful characters (Lea Seydoux is gorgeous IMO) can't save a game with such a bizarre story and if it's too political it'll be DOA. I have faith in Hideo so I will absolutely give this game a chance.
