I want a massive break the target dlc mode.   I would pay 9.99 for that.

So Nintendo has handled Fighter games basically like any other franchise.  I must say that 2 seasons is basically like getting a brand new Smash Bros game.  Honestly 11 new characters and balance tweaks would be a new fighting game.  This game really makes me wonder if this really is the last Smash Bros Sakuri will make...and if it is, will we just get graphical upgrades later, though honestly it doesn't need it.

What was the surprise cameo?  Also, I am still curious about it.  Is it remotely possible to watch it and understand without watching any of the shows?

Or it could be that the character is basically ready and will be released this week so, they are showing everything.

The controls did it for me too.  The basic controls were just not fun, and then the advanced controls were just too hard to figure out.  Then the game felt too much like gambling...or forcing for money.

There are many Nintendo Characters that I would like to see added, but I kinda want to wait for the Nintendo franchise characters to be added in the second wave of DLC.  3rd party characters are harder to guess.  Characters I thought they might go with like Tails and such are not included and don't seem big enough to be a DLC character. 

I think I would like to see an Advance Wars character as the final DLC.  I know that is technically a Nintendo franchise so that should go into my second wave of DLC, but Advance Wars is under-represented and it could be a strange character with calling troops to battle for him.  much like Pokemon trainer.

I think the PT/Clone Wars period made a mistake of having it too close together with the OT. 

The idea that Jedi's highest most respected period and their fall and galaxy that thinks they are a forgot relic of a religion is too short.  It really hurt the story.  The Prequel Series should have been about the clone war and the rise of the Empire, but it should not have been about the origin of Darth Vader.  Or at least if it was, they could have just let people live much longer lives in this universe and had it take place 100 to 150 years in the past. 

However, that said, I do like the world of the PT trilogy.  I like the idea of the Jedi being elite generals protecting the galaxy, and this dark force lurking in the shadows manipulating events and politics for the benefits.  The struggle of how to bring order to the world in a good way with peace and order, or the dark side of chaos, fear, control and order is an interesting world. 

George Lucas didn't do a great job of portraying it, however, it wasn't horrible. 

I have to say Sony, might be on to something interesting.  Hero movies have a problem of almost always under developing their villains.  If you can write villain origin Stories that are interesting and spend the time to make a villain that people can care about but recognize they are evil...then it makes the genre better and stronger. 

What I can tell from the trailer.

1) Has the feel of the recent DC movies.  It embraces the characters and the weirdness of them, but also is just a little off from doing them right.  Like I know who the cast is, but I look at them and say Nope.

2) Highly stylized fight scenes, that are completely not grounded and silly.  However, the little action we get in this trailer looks like it could be fun.

3) The raid on the police station being completely none lethal is either going to make or break the movie.  If it is high energy and funny, which they seem to be trying to do...then I think it will be great.  If it comes across as cheap or just silly, then it is going to hurt.

Rebels has a few really great episodes and lore, but it was so filled with such bad episodes that it wasn't worth the series...and some of the stuff people have said is the cool stuff is just not.  The new Star Wars Cartoon I couldn't even get through one episode it looked and felt that bad.

Different beast.  PS4 Slim was just a PS4 release model.  PS4 Pro was launched longer into the life of the PS4.  But I do remember people wondering if it was necessary, and the trust is, it wasn't.  PS4 Pro didn't extend the life of the PS4 brand or a Switch Pro won't either.  The best thing Nintendo can do moving forward is to just make sure download games and accounts will always be backwards compatible and try to support a system for as long as it is feasibly profitable to do so.  Wii U was a failure so ending that generation early made sense.  But the Switch is a success and people are not worried about it's power, so keep it going for another year or 2 before releasing a Pro....or never release the Pro and when the PS5 drops just drop the Switch price to be like super affordable.

Man I have never played Splatoon 2 and I would love to play it.  However, at the same time I know Mario Kart 8 is supposed to be the best Mario Kart created.  Hmmm...I can only get one game.  Then there is also Bomber Man R that I am looking at. 


I don't know why they bother to block something once it's been leaked, it is leaked.  Anyway, so it.  I dunno, looks like it is basically Suicide Squad 2, but with brighter colors...and perhaps better comedy.  I like that DC is willing to just get outlandish and weird with some of their properties.

I have played the original and the DX version.  If you are going to play the retro game, go for the DX version as it adds 1 dungeon and is just a better experience with the color and presentation.

The problem I had with Rebels is that it felt too much like a cartoon.  The series just doesn't feel like it is grounded.  Which is frustrating, because some of the stories and characters are interesting and play with the Star Wars Lore in fun and interesting ways, however, stuff like helicopter light saber flying is so silly.  I mean just let them force jump or force fly, but the other is crazy stuff.

This makes me wonder what everyones ranks of the main Saga are. 

Here is mine:
Empire Strikes Back
Return of the Jedi
Star Wars
Phantom Menace
The Force Awakens
Revenge of the Sith
Attack of the Clones
The Last Jedi

I have not seen RoS, but I will probably put it above Attack of the Clones and The Last Jedi.

That is crazy.  Disney + seems to following that Netflix magic of bringing back good franchises.  I don't remember Willow, but I remember as a kid it terrified me.

The Incredible Hulk is classic Monster movie. 

I mean at the end of the day, (if this is true) Universal must know that they won't have the success needed to make a good prophet.  However, getting a sure prophet from a sell is better than nothing or a loss.  And the last 2 Hulk Solo movies didn't do great.  As well, Namor can't be done as a solo film now.  The underwater world has already been down with Aquaman, and so Namor will just look like a copycat.  Sell and cut your losses.  Spiderman is a tougher situation.  Marvel really wanted Spiderman for the Infinity Saga and they did everything they could to get him.  Unfortunately, they have re-invigorated the franchise that Sony almost destroyed, which has increased its value exponentially.  Sony is not going to let go of this cash cow now.  Maybe if the Sony films without the Marvel connection failed again, Sony could cut its losses.  Still, that is going to be tough. 

At the same time, the Super Hero Movie craze has been going on for over a decade now, and it seems to be winding down.  So, I wonder if that will have some play in what happens.

Nintendo Gaming / Re: Metroid Prime 4

As much as I enjoyed the Metroid Prime trilogy.  I think I would rather have a Donkey Kong Country Returns quality world and level design for Super Metroid.  And I think a Western Team could get that true Super Metroid feel of dread and storytelling from each screen, that has really been lacking in the 2D Metroid games, since Super Metroid.

Don't get me wrong, the games were great and Super Metroid Zero Mission is possibly my second favorite Super Metroid Game, but none of them properly had the level of environmental storytelling the SNES game had. 

Here is hoping Falcon and the Winter Soldier is ahead of schedule too.

Splatoon2 or Mario Kart 8?

You know it could also be a test for a Marvel movie laced with horror elements. They could also release it with a few edits to make it hit into the multiverse universe of Marvel.

BnM:  I think the Marvel TV being folded into the Marvel Films also has to deal with the grand plan of the Infinity Saga.  I think Disney and Marvel Films really wanted a full movie experience.  Now that big gamble is over with, they are doing something different.  Smaller and more intimate...television is perfect for that. 

I also think that television is dying and television budgets are harder to justify big expensive shows and productions.  There are a lot of expectations with television that networks want. But all of those things go away with streaming.  Need fewer than the 12 to 24 order shows, streaming that is normal.  Do you need variable run times for your episodes that don't always hit the 24 minute 45 minutes models of television.  Done.  Do you need larger budgets, that can be done too. 

I do find it annoying to wait for original content, but Disney Plus is still hell of a good deal, and I am sure Disney also wants to make sure they have some new first run shows coming out as they roll their service out to the world that will be new to everyone.  They are not going to get that world penetration until late 2020 maybe even 2021.  We will see what happens.  I can wait. 

Just yesterday I watched Thor Ragnarok again and then Lilo and Stitch.  Man, Lilo and Stitch is a great movie but surprisingly emotional. 

Nintendo Gaming / Re: Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch/Wii U)
« on: December 29, 2019, 01:14:04 AM »
Finished Breath of the Wild, and I must say, I loved almost everything about it.  It really desires all the praise it got, and really is the future of the Zelda franchise.  There were things I didn't like, but understand their choices.  Things I think they could improve upon, but overall it was a wild ride. 

First, I understand the decision for weapons breaking as it forces the need to collect more weapons and experiment with weapons.  Though I think collecting and upgrading weapons of varying types without them breaking does the same thing.  So I understand the decision and fully support it, but also admit it doesn't feel like Zelda.

The thing I would improve upon is the lack of Zelda gadgets.  I would love to get the hookshot or double hookshot again.  Zelda having that "Metroid" feel of collecting items to further your progress and slowly get more power is a great feeling, and this game does give you that but at the same time doesn't.

The Stamina Bar is interesting, and overall I like the idea, but I think more standard way of upgrading it would be nice. 

The biggest lack was the traditional dungeons, especially themed dungeons.  I hope we get a fully realized more traditional Zelda experience merged with the Breath of the Wild structure.
