  1. Anyone reading anything good? I'm reading a lot of my older stuff as I can't afford monthlies at the moment & I've asked for Spawn/Batman for Xmas. I've been rereading alot of things I got on Humble Bundle & Comixology. I've been really enjoying re-reading all the Transformers stuff IDW put out a few years ago, such as "More Than Meets The Eye" & "Robots In Disguise". You don't have to be a Transformers' fan to appreciate how good those series were, touching on such great subjects and mortality, purpose and function in society etc. Some of the crossover stuff they did is weaker, but was good to see some stuff from when I was a kid, like M.A.S.K & Visionaries. One of the better crossover events was "Transformers VS G. I. Joe" which isn't a link to any of the series going on at the time. It's co-written and drawn by Tom Scioli (Godland, F4:Grand Design) which I know is an acquired taste, but I like it's Jack Kirby style. It's very Saturday Morning Cartoon feel, but there's so much going on in the series for both Transformers & GI Joe fans alike & the design of some of the panels is great. The plot is simple, GI Joe stand as the last line of defence against an Alien Invasion. Anyway, I won't bore you with any more.
  2. Well, that was an easy little game to pass some time, some hilarious looking Pokémon this time around. One of my favourite's is the Hanna Barbera looking Mouse Duo. I won't echo all the technical issues above we are all having, but I totally agree about the cameras. Although I only found out yesterday that you can rotate the camera with the right stick in battle. I'm now on the after game stuff and trying to fill out my Pokédex, so wondering is anyone with Scarlet looking to do some swaps? I've got Iron Bundle etc more than willing to trade. Not only that, but I've tried the code list, but the only thing that seems to work on it is swapping Foreign Dittos.
  3. https://www.humblebundle.com/books/introduction-to-battletech-catalyst-game-labs-books Bundle featuring the Catalyst Stuff (If you're in the U.S. that is) as well as some books etc.
  4. https://www.humblebundle.com/books/black-friday-encore-lone-wolf-cub-and-more-koike-from-dark-horse-books A decent bundle with some Lone Wolf, Samurai Executioner, Crying Freemen etc
  5. I've never seen that happen. I'm surprised they don't just have the alternative colors behind a paywall. Another season where I shall give the battle pass a miss.
  6. It was shit. I'm not bothered by doing any more after that, was just a waste of time. Not sure we needed all this stuff from COD in the new season but maybe I'll warm to it. Suppose they need to do something to try and entice people back from MW. Can't see it pulling me away from COD Dmz though.
  7. Any way to see that without a Facebook account?
  8. "Something In The Dirt" - 4/5 (2/5 If new to the directors) The latest Moorhead & Benson film. Plenty of references and connections to their previous films, which is nice if you follow the pair. Could've dropped a few minutes here and there, but the overall film I found enjoyable, and the pair have left me with plenty to think about. Recommended if you are a fan of the pair, but imagine if you are new to them, it could be very hard going.
  9. Another ok week of Anime for me. Bleach was good as usual, earning its IMDB 9.5 and is making me want for some of the later fights in this arc, but I've got a feeling that the current season episodes maybe finishing sooner than we think. Gundam Witch was the usual emo with a few decent set pieces, and what I took to be a good little nod towards Gundam Wing. I really loved Episode 6 (Two behind so far) of Akiba Maid, it's just such a great series that I would never have tried if it wasn't for the mention here. I've also started watching another Isekai series called "Drifters" about "Heroes" & "Villains" from history being brought to the usual fantasy world. It's pretty good so far, but I wonder If I've either seen it before or maybe read the Manga or LN.
  10. Pitch Perfect "Bumper In Berlin" S1 3/5 A spin-off featuring both Bumper (Adam DeVine) & one of the members of Das Sound Machine. There's some chemistry between Heidi & Bumper, which after a google seems to be because they were in "Modern Family" together. Pretty simple plot, and If you like Adam DeVine & his character from the movies, you'll get on with this. Honestly, I like DeVine so that was always going to be a pull when it came to the show (And there are a few Workaholics references as well as some of his own personal touches) but there were a few points when it seemed to drag. I'm glad I watched it and will be watching S2 when it releases.
  11. I think it's one of those things where it depends on when you watched it vs the hype. I started with Stardust, watching the fan subs when it first came out (2015?) and it was so over the top and unique compared to the other stuff at the time. After that, I read the Manga and far preferred it with all the Music references intact and with things less drawn out. That whole fight thing is a Shōnen trope, it's in all the Shōnen stuff I watch from Dragonball to Naruto, but I get what you mean. Cheers, for taking the time out to say what you didn't like about it.
  12. Gamera vs. Barugon (2/5) One of the better ones considering it's age (1966). Black Adam (1/5) Christ, even the (non) surprise spoiler could save this movie. Poker Face (1/5) Couple of familiar faces in this Crowe & Rza, but god was it a load of rubbish. I'm pretty sure either I dozed off because it was late or there's a big chunk of story missing.
  13. I've never heard of either before but it looks at sounds ok. "It is August 12th. After the remote control to his boarding house’s only air conditioning unit is inadvertently destroyed by spilled cola, “I” devises a plan to return to yesterday in a time machine to recover the remote before it breaks. However, his prankster friend Ozu cannot resist playing with past events, even if it means bringing the universe to the brink of destruction. Now “I” finds himself racing through time to avoid disaster."
  14. People liked Cyberpunk, I got bored after the first one. Is Cowboy Bebop still on Netflix? If yes then that is worth a watch. Vinland Saga is on Netflix now as well as Prime, there's another recommendation. Disney+ has the old and new Bleach but you'd be a bit lost to start the new Bleach without watching the old. And the old hasn't aged well. Which Jojo did you watch btw? Just because I've never met anyone who didn't like it and was curious which you started with.
  15. That was something else. The scene was great in the Manga and the video games, but that was next level. The animation has been great throughout, but they raised the bar for that fight, reminds me of when they did the same for Madara vs The Alliance Shinobi in Naruto. Kaka Jumanokushi Daisojin looked fantastic and was really well animated and even if you read the Manga you can't help but be impressed with how it looked. But, Didn't take them long for the "just the tip" memes.
