I understand the opinion of Sunshine but why Odyssey?  I know many complain about the number of moons and some of the tasks being too hard or obtuse.

I have actually read several posts online saying Mario Odyssey is a better game than Breath of the Wild in structure, mechanics, and design...but Breath of the Wild is just so innovative.  I am kinda sad because Nintendo USA decided not to give us Odyssey at 30% discount so that is affecting my decision somewhat. 

I am curious why Magiccow thinks Odyssey is one of the worst 3D Mario games.

Thanks for the advice.  I was leaning toward Odyssey because it seems like an more casual experience.  I am not a completionist so I don't need to get everything in both games.  But I do need something that I can play for 15 minutes or 30 minutes and put it down.  Maybe Breath of the Wild is that experience, but maybe it isn't.  I just know that Breath of the Wild is a super revolutionary game for Nintendo and Odyssey is the perfect refinement of the Super Mario 3D formula.  Thanks for the help.

I am going to get one new game for my new switch this weekend.  I can't decide between Breath of the Wild or Odyssey.  I need something that can be casually played and just pure Nintendo magic.  I love both series equally.  Thoughts?

I have struggled to get on Disney + it often says that the internet connection is too slow.  I read an article describing that they had no idea how much demand they were going to have and basically the core program was under performing.  That they were going to be rewriting the program from the ground up within the next 2 or three weeks.  I really want to watch some shows on the service, but so far I have only been able to watch like 4 full episodes of various shows and movies.

Or it could just be a dark Blue and Grey color films better and it has nothing to do with being kid friendly but designing a costume that will look dynamic on film.  I mean the previous Batman Costumes don't really scream dynamic images.

Willow I need to see that again.

At the moment Disney+ has positioned itself as the definitive secondary streaming service it really is a specialty service for families. The people saying that the service doesn’t have good original programs right now are right. The lineup is weak. But the potential is very strong.

I wouldn't mind seeing a younger Nathan Drake storyline.  Since that won't mess with the games stories and can therefore build cannon on top of the games instead of retelling stories.

Much better design and much better feel for the movie. Making Sonic an alien is an odd choice. Also they showed too much of the humor and jokes I think. But Jim Carrey looks like he is having fun so that should be interesting.

Saw that the Hulu original Runaway series is on D+ already. How about Cloak and Dagger?  I hope original exit Star Wars shows up eventually.

Disney+ is out.  The design and the interface is good.  Though, I have had some problems with series and account buttons overlapping.  I have also had some problems with loading and the design getting stuck.  I don't know if it is a problem on my end or the problem is with the servers and bandwidth.  I am curious if others are having problems and if Disney has enough servers and bandwidth for this service.  I am sure they will get things ironed out.

As it is, I have only watched one show and one short.  I watched the Jeff Goldblum show just to see if service was working.  It is a strange show, and I am not quite sure what I watched or if it was good.

Yes The Batman got better and better as they figured out what they wanted to be.  Batman: TAS and Justice League are my gold standard for any comic book animation.

The Batman got better after season 1.  I think season 1 was them trying to figure out what they wanted to be and season 2 really showed they figured it out.

You know the Popeye's Chicken Sandwich stabbing, I almost feel like Popeye's is happy for the negative news.  I mean how many people are thinking, damn I need to try that sandwich if people are willing to stab someone for it.  But the truth is, there is NO WAY, that stabbing happened ONLY because two adults wanted a Chicken sandwich.  It's a CHICKEN SANDWICH, from a fast food place.  Adrock's review sounds exactly like what I would expect. 

Disney made such a smart purchase with buying Marvel, and as long as the stories are good then Disney+ is in good hands.  I am not sold on Phase 4 movies, except for a few, but I am definitely sold on Disney+ Marvel stuff. 

I really think they are going to do something special over there.

TalkBack / Re: New Features Announced For Pokemon Sword And Shield

I like these new features.  I feel like they are really trying to balance the competitive scene and the original concept of collecting and raising a pet.  They don't want Players just throwing away Pokemon because of natures that people don't want, or poor base stats. 

This seems to make the entire game more accessible, but I am sure some will say it will ruin the meta and special-ness of catching a really good Pokemon, but to me I think that is a good thing.

I put all my eggs in Apple iTunes for the reason I thought Apple would never be going anywhere. 

Broodwars:  Thank you for sharing your story about your mom and The Incredibles.  It is always interesting to see what makes something special for someone.  The backstory and history to it. 

As for Incredibles 2.  I think your analysis is mostly correct, however I could argue that family is a very interesting thing.  It is made of individual people, but the relationships and connections make become a character itself.  So for example, you said Mr. Incredible had a story arc and he totally did, but that story arc could not exist without Jack-Jack as Mr. Incredible learned another way to be a Father and learned the other side of the parent equation.  At the same time, Mrs. Incredible learns the sacrifices and thrill of escaping her life, but she gets caught up in it.  She literally makes the exact same mistake Mr. Incredible does in the first movie, but his was accidental and hers was more explicit.  There was even a sort of feminist push pulling Mrs. Incredible to believe this new life is what she deserves, pulling her further away from the family. 

These are both strong arcs but only when you connect them to the family bond, by themselves they are rather weak story arcs.  Move to the children who have the weakest story arcs, but that is to be expected since the movie almost literally takes place after the first movie and so the adjustment to their previous arcs hasn't fully set in.  Violet is learning to deal with her new confidence and learning how to be a strong woman.  Dash is learning how to be a normal kid with powers.  Their arc comes towards the end, where they again learn what it means to be a family with super power responsibilities and that people will be afraid of that power and want to hurt you.  They experience that hate and fear first hand that their parents were trying to protect themselves from. 

The movie doesn't spend time dealing with that, but I believe it is there subtly.  Finally, the kids step up and take the role of leaders of the family temporarily showing they are growing into adulthood.  Now is the movie perfect?  NOPE.  Does the movie handle these complex issues as smoothly and successfully as the first.  NOPE.  The first movie is almost perfect itself.  But the movie isn't bad.

Broodwars:  I didn't think The Incredibles 2 was bad.  It just wasn't as good as the first.  But it was still fun to be in that universe again.  The Incredibles universe is just so much fun.  Spider-Verse 2 is going to need a tight story, because the style and surprises of the first movie won't hit the same in the sequel...which is one of the main problems of LEGO movie wasn't a surprise anymore.

I think the CGI is BAD, but it still isn't Smallville bad...and in some ways it is so bad it is good.  The martian scene is actually much better than blowing up the window scene. 

Anyway, I think that they must be saving money for the big Crisis event.

Sesame Street bring HBO exclusive now makes sense why John Oliver was able to do specials with them.  Ha.  Anyway, HBO Max seems like a decent deal If you like Animation.  In all reality, I could probably get HBO Max and Disney+ Hulu and be happy.  That would still be like $30.00 a month, but I would probably never have to go out to the movies again.  Ha.  As for the price, if you are a Friends fan or Fresh Prince, just those 2 shows alone would be worth the price for a year. 

Well, I think it would be smart and VERY brave if the Superman Show is actually a combining of Supergirl and Superman into a single show.  What they really need is a Superman universe show, a Batman universe show, a Flash universe Show, and a Green Arrow Universe show.  I could see spinning Green Arrow into something like the Outsiders where you take the universe of side characters that decide to continue the fight without Green Arrow.  Since that show is ending. 

Then you do one big crossover event a season and perhaps one or two smaller crossover events.

I think because Star Wars is ultimately a really fun world that you want to visit and see stories in.  So you forgive the many many mistakes that is made in previous movies.  And the story just looks fun.  It looks like a nice Space Western.

Khush:  I think simple season recaps would be fine.  I mean, I bet the actual Crisis event doesn't really need much knowledge of individual episodes just general story arcs
