When we usually see robots majority of the time in the media or video games, we see giant or small robot mechs going around blowing stuff up while armed with lethal weaponry and ready to go to war without any fear or emotions! We see these kinds of actions by these machines as being the ultimate weapon for mass destruction! There's movies like the Terminator movies, Robocop movies, Transformers, etc. While some robots are programmed for certain tasks like a housemaid, assistant, car assembler, entertainers, etc. Some are programmed with childlike innocence. Our view of robots can range from the bizzare to the Uncanny Valley if they start resembling humans way too much with latex skin that looks just horrific and disturbing at times. Some robots on the other hand capture our hearts. There's those movies, cartoons, and games that portray robots in this way! A new movie trailer called Chappie that stars this robot with an innocent childlike personality just came out. It's not shown yet whether it's programmed that way or just given free will by its creators so that it's learning on its own by interacting with people rather than an already preprogrammed with function without free will. The problem with this is that since it's just learning it might make mistakes and could get Chappie in trouble with the humans for those mistakes. I guess this movie will explore that problem and see the connections between us humans and their robot creations! Here's some other robot movies, cartoons, and CGI animation that might be similar to Chappie that explore the interesting world of robots: WALL-E, Short Circuit movies, Real Steel, Transformers, Tobor the Great, Robot Monster, I Robot, Robot Carnival, Bicentennial Man, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, C3PO and R2D2 from the Star Wars movies, The Mighty Orbots, Challenge of the GoBots, Gigantor, Iron Giant and my favorite of the robots Astro Boy. Let's not forget the video games as well which has Mega Man, Zero from Mega Man X, Tekken's Combot, E-102 Gamma from Sonic Adventure, Cait Sith from FFVII, Sektor and Cyrax from the Mortal Kombat games, Robot Masters from the Mega Man and Mega Man X game series, Metal Sonic, Brownie from Contra Hard C.O.R.P.S. Raiden from the Metal Gear games (he's a hybrid of a half man/half machine like Robocop but he's part machine so I include him), GlaDOS from the Portal Games, Robo from Chrono Trigger, The Transformers games, etc. I almost forgot about the new Big Hero 6 which stars that balloon inflatable like robot Baymax! The movie has a certain funny charm to it!
I gotta admit the scene below is just nuts when Iron Giant went beast/rage mode!
Here's the new Big Hero 6 trailer!
Here's a disturbing and not so innocent look but a more scary look into the Uncanny Valley in robots and machines!

Okay, it only happens once every year just like any holiday or event and that is Halloween! It's one of my most favorite time of the year! I'm a huge fan of horror in media whether it be movies, TV shows, art, and of course my favorite hobby on video games! The lists below will be some horror movies and horror games that I will be recommending for you to check out if you have an appetite for getting scared! It is fear month so I will be doing a lot of survival horror games but horror themed games in general as well as watching some horror movies as well whenever I get the chance! So now let the terror begin!
These are my lists of horror games that I recommend for you to check out!
1)Silent Hill 3 which is my most favorite survival horror game of all. I'd also recommend the other Silent Hill games in the franchise but I'd recommend you play Silent Hill 1 to 4 and maybe try out Silent Hill Origins and Homecoming as well even though they're not by the original Team Silent. There is also that PT Demo which is actually the upcoming Silent Hills game.
2)Resident Evil 2 is my second most favorite horror game because it was the first survival horror game I played! lol Yeah, that was back when it came out in 1998 and I played the Nintendo 64 version cartridge since I didn't have a Playstation at the time and had to go to my friend's house to play it. lol I also recommend Resident Evil 3, 4, 5, and maybe 6 but 5 and 6 have completely become action base and lost a lot of the horror elements. Also, Resident Evil Code Veronica and Outbreak are okay too. This is what made the fans of the survival horror kinda upset because of the changes. Luckily with all these new survival horror titles coming out like The Evil Within and Silent Hills and maybe others we'll see survival horror make a comeback. There's also the Resident Evil Gamecube version but you might as well wait for the new HD remastered of this game that's coming up because it looks a lot better than the older version.
3)Shadow Man is another one of the my favorite game. This game is kind of like horror but it starts of like a platformer and adventure type but if you manage to go far into the game then you will see the horror elements of the game. It's not for everybody because it's the type of game that is very long if you want to complete it which will take between 10 to 30 hours of gameplay depending on your skill and speed. It's also one of those Metroidvania style of game in which you have to do some backtracking and you can get lose in areas because the world is so huge with no map you will easily get lost. You also get new powers, dark souls and items which you will need to progress further. Other items like the Cadeaux for health upgrade are optional so you don't have to get everything. Some of the weapons and voodoo magic weapons are also optional but might be handy if you get them but you don't have to.
4)The Devil May Cry series are a combination of horror with mostly action base hack n slash fast pace combat. I don't know if you'd like this game because it's more of an action game with a little bit of horror but because of Dante's cocky attitude this makes the game more fun instead because of his smart, cheery, and kind of laid back personality. He's the type of badass that just doesn't give a crap whether he's fighting an army of demons or a giant one he'll treat them like they're a joke and even joke and make fun of his enemies. This game won't scare you at all because of that but I'd put this on this list anyway.
5)These will be a list of Indie Survival Horror games that you can try out if you want. Some of these games you will either need Half-Life 2 game and Half-Life 2 Episode 1 and 2 to play because they are Source Mods and uses materials, models, particles, maps, etc. from those games to enable you to play them. Not all these games are Half-Life 2 Source Mods so you can just play them right away after downloading the games. Okay here are my lists of indie survival horror games you got check out if you wanna get scared! lmao These will be in alphabetical order and you can download the games by clicking on the name of the games below which will take you to the website where you can download them from. Also, all these games are free except for the ones which you need the Half-Life 2 stuff on. I'll add more later on the lists as I find more of these free indie survival horror games.
x)Nightmare House 2 (If you guys need help with fixing this game like getting it to start, missing walls/floors, red 3D errors, etc then I can help you out! Go to my youtube gaming channel AplG7Rocks and ask me there by PMing me or commenting the questions, etc. I'll make a video later on how to fix these problems for this game.)
6)The Condemned game franchise is another good first-person survival horror that you need to check out. It's mostly a brawl type game in first-person because guns are uncommon so you will have to rely on your survival instincts as you try to fight for your life while you find the one who framed you for murder. The setting is in this place called Metro City and psychotic people or things will come after you so be prepared!
7)The Fatal Frame games rely more on the chill factor and spookiness of the atmosphere. You are armed with nothing but a camera. The game plays like older survival horror games like Resident Evil and Silent Hill in fixed camera angles but switches to first-person when you use the camera that can expel spirits which is your only weapon against the paranormal.
8 The F.E.A.R. games is another franchise that is a first-person shooter with horror elements. Unlike other horror games where you are helpless here you got weapons to combat the creatures and things that are out to kill you. There's also multiplayer so that's a plus.
9)The Parasite Eve game franchise is another good horror game series. The game is similar to the Resident Evil games except that it has RPG elements. That's an interesting take on a horror game.
10)Dino Crisis franchise is another good survival horror game that is similar to the older Resident Evil games. Think Resident Evil but instead of zombies you have killer dinosaurs trying to eat your butt! lol
11)The Dead Space game franchise is a pretty good third-person horror game. This game takes place in space and you gotta survive with your armot suit and weapons you find around as you upgrade them while you combat the nasty necromorphs.
12)The Siren game franchise is another good third-person survival horror franchise. You have access to very little weapons and your enemies are the shibito which are corpse people that are very relentless and almost unbeatable coz they keep coming back. You gotta use your wit and hide a lot if you wanna survive in this game. You also have an ability to see from your enemy's perspective so you can know where they are coming from but you gotta be careful.
13)The Suffering game franchise is another good third-person psychological horror game. You are convicted for the murder of your ex-wife and two children but an earthquake occurs and horrible monsters are unleash in the prison you are in. You gotta survive this nasty place using your survival instincts duh and don't get eaten. lol The cool thing is that you play as Torque who can transform into a sort of monster as well so that evens up the playing field.
I'll add more to these later as I find more and newer free indie horror games! Enjoy!
Okay! Now that we got those horror games out of the way it's time I list some pretty good horror movies that I recommended you to watch so that you will have nightmares! Muwahahaha!

I was on the interwebs again and came across a gameplay demo of a game called P.T. I just watch several videos of the game being played by different people. It seems to be a PS4 exclusive so I guess that's what we know so far about this game. The game starts off in a first-person perspective rather than the usual third-person perspective we know from the Silent Hill games. You go into this creepy house that's completely empty and silent coz Silent Hill. As the player go further into this home the sounds and dark hallway's atmosphere starts becoming more creepy and full of dread. It's like you're expecting for something to just pop up and scare the crap out of you from behind but it doesn't. I gotta give the game's atmosphere credit because it really does feel like Silent Hill. As the player goes further it keeps going back to the same hallway as if you are somehow trap in this limbo or hellish alternate house. It looks like a normal house but something horrible has happened here though. The radio starts and a voice talks about a killing done by the father to his wife and kids. After that the place starts to change and shift. It's subtle at first but becomes more and more hellish as you keep coming back to this same hallway! The ending reveals that Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro himself who would have thought are behind this game! It also shows the Silent Hill title as we see Norman Reedus from the Walking Dead series revealed to be the protagonist in this game! Whaaaat?! The game is called Silent Hills with an s though so what does that mean? Does it mean that there's more than one Silent Hill or does it mean something else? The dude behind the Metal Gear Solid franchise and the man behind the Hellboy franchise, Pacific Rim, Blade 2, Pan's Labyrinth, producer of Mama, and other sci-fi, creepy, horror movies are teaming up to create this game! I couldn't believe what I just saw and the graphics looks really nice using the Fox Engine! Holy crap! Could Silent Hill be making a comeback? My only question is that will this game be in first-person or third-person perspective or maybe even combine both? What would be cool in m opinion for this game is to be able to switch from first-person to third-person on the fly with the touch of a button! That would be awesome! That way you can play from different perspectives like in Skyrim! Well, if they do decide to combine both then at least have gameplay scenario of both perspectives. Also at the end when the title for the game was revealed as being Silent Hills we see Norman Reedus character walk outside in the city at night so does that mean the game will be pretty vast and actually takes place outside and also inside houses and buildings? Will it have kind of like free roam area and then going inside creepy houses and mansions and buildings, apartments, etc. like in the previous Silent Hill games? What I would like to make a come back for this franchise is the Otherworld! I miss that place. If you guys remember that place was disturbing with the shifting environments filled with blood walls and flesh with dead bodies. That was like hell! I wonder how this game will utilize the shifting world of the normal Silent Hill, foggy Silent Hill and the Otherworld. That would be interesting to see later on once more stuff is revealed by these guys! This is a very interesting team up though and Guillermo's experience in the horror genre could probably help revive this game. I got really creeped by that gameplay demo and actually got some jump scares. It has that kind of psychological horror that's always part of the Silent Hill games. It messes with your head and I like that!

This is an interesting twist. We've been hearing rumors of Google wanting to buy the gaming streaming site Twitch which is starting to become big nowadays. This time though a different turn of events had occurred. Amazon the giant online shopping store has bought Twitch for $970 million! Woah! O.o What could this mean for Twitch? Will it turn into a shopping store and gaming streaming site at the same time or will it just stay the same? Amazon will probably promote their products and shop through Twitch ads and all that. I don't mind all that. As long as the current features of Twitch are just as good now as it was before. They can do some improvements here and there but I have no problem with Amazon acquiring Twitch. I use Amazon several times already when buying games, electronics, and computer parts and I didn't have any problems with them yet so they're pretty good with delivery. I've never contacted their costumer service so I don't know if that is good. Well, what do you guys think of this big news? Since Amazon is a really popular online store much like ebay this could probably help promote TwitchTV globally further so that more audience and people will tune in and watch or participate and use it to stream themselves. This combination may not makes sense now but it will probably later. It must be a strategic marketing move on their part but we'll just have to wait and see. I've heard of another streaming site called HitboxTV which I might try out later. For now, I'll stick with Twitch since I've never really had any problems with them.

I love the Highlander movie but I didn't really like the sequels especially Highlander the Source which was an abomination just as bad as Uwe Boll's movies! I get a serious headache just thinking about it! I need to calm down! Whew! Must... breathe... Okay! I feel better now! I saw the first Highlander movie and got into it! I'm not the biggest Highlander fan but man I have seen all of the movies including the series and the anime movie! I will say that the first movie with Christopher Lambert as Connor MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod, Sean Connery as Juan Sánchez Villa‑Lobos Ramírez, and Clancy Brown as The Kurgan is the best one and the second best is the series with Adrian Pual as Duncan MacLeod. The third one I've loved is the 2007 animated movie Highlander The Search For Vengeance which stars Collin MacLeod! Geez, how many of these immortal MacLeods are out there! lol The Highlander End Game movie was alright but meh could have been better. I wished they introduce other immortals from other places other than Scotland like the East, West, North, or South as the good guys and bad as well of course. They need to show a more diverse group of immortals if they are to do a reboot of the series. I really want this franchise to be redeemed! C'mon Hollywood! Do it but then again I want them to do it right so maybe it's better to do it right or don't do it at all type of deal. The other movies are just garbage and shouldn't even exist! They need to be erase from existence and beheaded for there can be only one! YAAAAH! lol For those of you guys who aren't familiar with the Highlander franchise it's basically a series about these humans who are immortals. They can't be killed by guns, drowning, burning, jumping from any height, blood lost, etc. (maybe if they get blown up into smithereens with a grenade or missile might probably do the trick lol). They also can't die of hunger or thirst but it weakens them with fatigue if they don't eat or drink because they still feel the sensations normal mortals feel. If an immortal sustain lethal injury like broken bones, destroyed internal organs even like their heart getting ripped out of their chest, etc. all the internal organs and bones will regenerate and heal quickly. Depending on how severe the injury is it may heal slower. If an immortal gets their limbs cut off like arms and legs then they won't grow back. I think that the part of the body has to be attach as a whole for the regeneration to occur. Immortals who sustain damage around the neck area or above the neck like the head receives scars because it's their area of weakness. They use the power of the quickening I believe to generate energy in the swords they wield making their hits stronger than normal people that's why you see sparks when their weapons strike something. They also use the quickening to heal themselves so the stronger the immortal the faster and quicker they heal depending on the amount of immortals they have already killed. They are born naturally like normal people except that they can't die! They live for centuries and a millenia! You can't really tell a normal person apart from an immortal unless you're an immortal yourself! Immortals are somehow drawn to each other via this phenomenon much like the Quickening! The only way to kill an immortal is to cut off his or her head! If an immortal manages to cut off another immortal's head they will experience a quickening which is basically an electric lightning storm phenomenon (not sure if it's supernatural) that is kinda like an extreme orgasm of pain and power for the immortal receiving the quickening. Also, a lot of stuff like windows, cars, manholes, objects, etc. in the vicinity gets blown up by the blast radius of the quickening's power which is awesome! lol The immortal will acquire all the knowledge, power, and experience from what that decapitated immortal accumulated in his/her lifetime! There is also the prize of being the last immortal who will be the one because there can be only one! The immortals will battle throughout the centuries until only one is left to claim that prize! There are good and evil immortals and we all know what happens if the bad guys win! It's all over for humanity or something like that. An immortal won't be aware that he is immortal at first but only after he or she manages to come back to life after "dying" when everything will be revealed to them by another immortal. They will be afraid at first by being confuse and thinking they are curse. Usually, they learn from both mortals and immortals experiences but another older and more experience good immortal will teach the younger immortal beginner their ways and rules. There's also the rule that all immortals follow which is that they can't fight on holy ground doesn't matter if it's a church or holy temple of some sort in any culture it's forbidden if you guys saw the first movie and the series. Also, immortals are drawn to each other by an irresistible force or pull which is the Gathering. They can also sense each others presence when another immortal is nearby or when another immortal is beheaded. Immortals also have it bad when it comes to love once because they watch them grow old and die whether of natural causes or killed while they keep on living in sorrow and pain for centuries. The immortals are somehow incapable of having children so that sucks for them. If somehow a mortal manages to decapitate, behead, permanently kill, etc. another immortal the quickening of that immortal will not go to or won't be absorbed by the mortal but instead will dissipate into the sky above via electric explosion of energy. If another immortal is somehow within close proximity of the blast radius of the quickening then that immortal will be able to absorb and receive the power of that quickening even if that immortal didn't do the beheading but he or she has to be close to the area of the quickening. If two immortals are within close vicinity of the quickening then they both will absorb the power and the quickening's energy will be split among them. That is called a double quickening and it rarely occurs. There is also the category of the light quickening and dark quickening. If a good immortal manages to behead an evil immortal then a dark quickening occurs where the good immortal's personality gets so overwhelmed by the dark energy that they turn evil themselves. The light quickening is the opposite in which an evil immortal beheads a good immortal and the quickening changes their personality from evil to good instead. The evil can be remove if the immortal trains his or herself by purging the darkness in their heart. That explains the stuff about immortals. I won't recommend the other movies though because they are so bad even though I've seen them. Just watch the first movie, the tv series, and the 2007 animated movie. I've also learned of a cancelled Highlander game that's being developed by Eidos Interactive and being published by Square Enix back in 2008! It got canned in 2010. It would have been so awesome! Darn it! I was so pissed off when it got cancelled! Sigh. Oh, well. Maybe they can do it again later or something. I've just revisited these movies and series out of nostalgia. I basically didn't understood what I was watching as a kid but having rewatched them nowadays made more sense to me.
Who wants to live forever when love must die? Who waits forever anyway?
The Kurgan wants the prize!
THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

I'm a fan of some anime but not all. I will admit I find some of them awesome and entertaining while some are just annoying and gives me a headache. I find the whole tsundere really annoying and gives me a migraine headache with Vegeta veins popping all over my head. lol Tsundere (ツンデレ?, pronounced [tsɯndeɽe]) is a Japanese character development process that describes a person who is initially cold and even hostile towards another person before gradually showing their warm side over time. The word is derived from the terms tsun tsun (ツンツン?), meaning to turn away in disgust, and dere dere (デレデレ?) meaning to become 'lovey dovey'. Originally found in Japanese bishōjo games, the word is now part of the otaku moe phenomenon, reaching into other media such as maid cafes, anime, manga, novels, and even mass media. I believe that CNN are claiming that manga and anime have child pornography in them when majority doesn't. There is the hentai genre of that which is basically the porn version of anime and manga but they aren't as big as manga and anime like the Dragon Ball franchise, Naruto, Bleach, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gundam series, Cowboy Bebop, Astro Boy, etc. I could go on and on but if CNN say that these on the list have child pornography in them as well then should all anime and manga be banned? Should everything manga and anime related be banned? Why did CNN make such a wild assumption? Of course, there will be the few hentai manga which will have these kinds of content but they won't be broadcast on TV for the public to see. I've never once seen hentai shown on television. I know people wanna ban everything whether they are video games, manga, anime, etc. coz MURICA! WAHAHA! Well, I think CNN are probably just getting moe and child porn confuse. The difference is that some manga have really cute and young characters in them both male and female but they aren't child pornography. Some of the manga CNN claimed were child porn like Dolls Fall aren't even child porn. That series is more of a psychological mystery with horror elements. CNN are just too ignorant to do their research further and just say on spot that everything must be banned or else go to jail and pay a jillion dollars to get out or face our corporate wrath muwahahah! That's how I see these guys but seriously though another anime is one called Love Hina which doesn't even have any porn in it. It's basically a harem anime with a bunch of girls falling for the same guy kinda like that stupid show The Bachelor but it's in anime form. CNN I know that you are trying to support censorship of everything offensive but don't attack everything because not all manga and anime are evil just like not all comics are evil. There are American comics out there I'm sure have offensive stuff on them too but that's the minority. I'm sure DC and Marvel don't have any child porn in them because if you guys wanna attack manga/anime might as well attack them all coz censorship! Amiright CNN! lol I'm not against you CNN and I know that it's your job to cover news and crap but now you have pissed off a lot of anime and manga fans because of this! I'm not pissed off because I take the neutral side but because I do my research carefully I consider myself a more enlightened being like Gandhi or Buddha. I'm not saying I'm anywhere near their level of enlightenment but at least I can see clearly through the mists and false stuff! I've seen the media demonize not only anime and manga but also video games, movies, shows, art, drawings, etc. time and time again. I'm sure this isn't gonna be the last time we'll hear again of these kinds of things. hehe I'm open minded to ideas and criticisms because everything should be criticize even manga and anime, video games, movies, shows, etc. That's what critics are for but I have my own judgements so I do my own research that's why I don't always trust the news or media. I love the internet!
Above is the news video CNN Talks About Anime Child Pornography Lolicon Graphic Manga and Anime! Below are the videos of pissed off fans of anime ranting about this!

These are just my thoughts after viewing the Qatsi films. They are basically movies that show you a perspective of the world, cities, environment, people both rich and poor, native people and people in the modern world, and the natural landscape around us in slow motion and time-lapse style. It doesn't have anyone narrating the movie but just uses background music. These films directed by Godfrey Reggio which are Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance (1982), Powaqqatsi: Life in Transformation 1988, Naqoyqatsi: Life as War (2002), etc. You can look them up and see what they're all about. As people would say that a picture is worth a thousand words then these type of films are worth billions of words because they tell a story in your own perspective. It's because of the lack of narration and only leaves you to look at the world and I really do mean look at it in a perspective that puts your mind both at ease like a meditative state. It lets you respect and just take in the nature around you and the visual stimulation is pretty satisfying. Everyone will interpret these movies according to their own viewpoint but the films let you see the world as it is raw and true without special effects or any thing. It's basically just the world as we see everyday but shown in a beautiful point of view and perspective. I also like Baraka (1992) and Samsara (2011) both directed by Ron Fricke. They are similar to the Qatsi trilogy of films in how they are shown with the whole slow motion and time laps artistic documentary like style. There are more other films like these. You can really see how much the detail of the films have change throughout the years as technology improve both in the film and how the film is done from the old ways of filming in low quality to the HD Samsara. The visuals just stimulates your brain and is pure eye candy. It puts me in a good mood and also lets me clear my thoughts and just take in the breathtaking visuals in the films. However you may interpret these films is up to you because I believe it's from the perspective of the viewer in they are interpreted. As an artist who like to draw, I can say that this film is just a work of art and is very genius in its film making and the angle and shots are just very real and surreal at the same time! If you are feeling down and depress or just really dirt rock bottom then maybe watching these type of movies can calm you down. Sometimes you need some silence and view the world in an introverted point of view. Just take it all in and clear your thoughts. It may help you see things more clearly or maybe not. I believe everyone is different in their own way and may or may not agree with my point of view. When it comes to these type of films silence truly is golden! You can check out the trailers below for the films.

I'm kinda late again with this news but wow I didn't saw this coming! So after all that stuff about Ben Affleck revealed to be playing Batman for the Man of Steel sequel or is it. It's called Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice scheduled to be released on 2016. We know that Zach Snyder is returning as director and Henry Cavill as Superman! I also saw a new pic with Wonder Woman who will be in this movie as well played by Gal Gadot! It's actually looking pretty good! I got kinda excited because of these two things which is this teaser and the pic. Man, I can't wait for 2016 to come already! Even though Marvel is currently on lead when it comes to movie franchises. DC dominates more into the TV media with the announcement of Constantine, Gotham and the Flash series! So that's at least what DC has on their audience! I can't wait to see what the upcoming teaser and trailers will reveal to us later on so that will be interesting to look forward do! So what do you guys think of the teaser for Batman V Superman Dawn of Justice which showed a little sneak peak of Batman and Superman staring down each other in epic fashion! Also, what do you think of Gal Gadot's new Wonder Woman outfit! She looks alright but we'll just have to wait and see what she can do and what's in store later on once they show these three DC Trinity in action on a future teaser and trailers. You can check down below for the pics and other thingies!
This teaser above might not be the official teaser but it can be speculated upon as to what the possibilities of its meaning with Batman watching what's going on the screen. There is also another teaser revealed at comic con showing the stare down between Superman and Batman which looks more authentic than the one show above. Just look it up yourself since the one I saw got taken down by Warner Bros.
I also would like for another DC comic franchise to get recognize better and what I'm talking about is the Sandman comic book series by writer Neil Gaiman. It explores a really good concept and worth checking out. The main character of The Sandman is Dream, also known as Morpheus and other names, who is one of the seven Endless. The other Endless are Destiny, Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium who was once Delight, and Destruction who turned his back on his duties. Each of the brothers and sisters inhabit and are the anthropomorphic personifications of their concepts.

For those who aren't familiar with Constantine, it's a comic series published by DC Comics and formerly called HellBlazer. It is a horror, occult detective comic book series that stars John Constantine a man who likes to smoke and did morally questionable things arguably for the greater good. The series has all sorts of supernatural beings and occurences surrounding the main protagonist John as he confronts demons, angels, etc. While sometimes striving for the good of mankind, John Constantine was often manipulative and a dangerous person to have as a friend, as the lives and souls of those around him became perilously involved in his misadventures. He took pains to protect himself from direct attacks, but his friends and relatives were often endangered in order to strike at him. The spirits of deceased friends haunted him, individually or as an entourage of ghosts. I was first introduce to Constantine when I saw the film of the same name with Keanu Reeves and Shia Labeouf. In this movie version, Constatine isn't blonde and British unlike his comic book counterpart. I guess Hollywood had to change some things to fit I don't know. I just don't get Hollywood thinking sometimes. Sigh. In the movie, John Constantine must save the world by stopping Armageddon and preventing Mammon (Lucifer's son) from being release on Earth and causing hell on the world. I wonder if Lucifer will make an appearance in this TV series. This TV series portrays John Constatine pretty accurately since he's like in the comic being blonde and British, etc. Well, I don't know much about the TV series version but being a fan of horror and supernatural movies made me interested in this. This Constantine made me look up and introduce me to that other DC comic book series called The Sandman starring Lucifer being portrayed as a blonde with angel wings. The way they show and portray him in that series is quite interesting and it's a pretty good series worth checking out. I don't know if this Lucifer is a different version compared to the one shown in Constantine or are they the same. Anyone know out there? If you do know make a video or something.

New news regarding the Street Fighter Assassin's Fist has been announced! It appears that Capcom who is involved with the Street Fighter Assassin's Fist crew has said that the series will be getting a sequel series! So that means more episodes will be created and released next year late 2015 or early 2016. Joey Ansah is returning to write and direct "Street Fighter: World Warrior" to bow in late 2015 or early 2016. Ansah will be returning with Christian Howard (Ken), Mike Moh (Ryu), Gaku Space (Goki), etc. Capcom announced this news on the San Diego Comic Con panel this Friday July 25, 2014. "We demonstrated with 'Assassin's Fist' that an authentic, live-action version of videogames, with a compelling and dramatic storyline, can be made," said series producer Jacqueline Quella. "We'll be taking the same approach with the new series." The plan for this new "World Warrior" series will be based of Street Fighter 2 games which is the most popular of all the Street Fighter franchise and what everyone is familiar with. Characters like Guile, Chun-Li, Sagat, M. Bison (the psycho powered powerful dictator), etc. "The scale of 'World Warrior' is much larger, picking up where 'Assassin's Fist' left off as we follow Ryu and Ken on their 'Musha Shugyo' (warrior's pilgrimage)," Ansah said. "The Shadaloo criminal cartel will be introduced, led by the extremely dangerous M.Bison, which will naturally lead into the World Warrior tournament," in which fan favorites Guile, Chun-li, Sagat will play a significant role. "There are some big and primal themes which we'll be exploring in the sequel," said producer Mark Wooding. "It will be thrilling and naturally, as befits the game, the fights will be epic, but it will be driven by the characters, their stories, faults and problems. It will be a dark tale." "We are delighted to be working again with the team that did such an excellent job with 'Street Fighter: Assassins Fist," said Matt Dahlgren, associate director of brand marketing at Capcom. "The response to it has been amazing, and working with filmmakers who are so passionate about the game is an extremely rewarding process." This is quite exciting as this will expand the Street Fighter Assassin's Fist universe like in the games and further introduce us to the rest of the characters and the areas and landscape will be bigger as well! We know that since Ryu and Ken will be traveling on their warrior's pilgrimage they will encounter fighters of all sorts! It will be quite interesting to see how they'll interact with the likes of Guile, Chun-Li, Sagat, M. Bison, etc.! I am looking forward to this! Oh, man! Hype time! This will be first time we'll see Sagat, Chun-Li, M. Bison, etc. in live action since that Street Fighter Van Damme movie they were portrayed on! I wonder who will be cast? I read somewhere that Ansah wants to cast English martial artist and actor Scott Adkins to play as Guile which is awesome! The question now is who will play the others? I just hope they make M. Bison really intimidating and quite powerful since he possess that telekinetic like psycho powers in addition to being a powerful fighter as well. I want M. Bison to be like how he was portrayed in Street Fighter 2 The Animated movie! Man, he was quite a beast in that one!

I was looking around the interwebs again and stumbled upon this Comic Con Footage trailer by Warner Brothers. It looks like a new Mad Max movie! For those who are unfamiliar with Mad Max (1979) the original two movies stars Mel Gibson who is one of these renegade cops who is out to hunt down motorcycle gangs and criminals in a dystopic future Australia. The movie explores gang warfare, chaos, criminals, and a vengeful cop out to avenge his murdered family! The first one is just raw violence and a lot of stunts and chases! The bad guys really deserved what came to them! The sequel stars Mel Gibson again in Mad Max 2 Road Warrior (1981) as Max Rockatansky! In this one supplies of gasoline have been exhausted in the near future and law and order has been broken down. The Main Force Patrol which Max was part can no longer function after a global war. Mad Max who left MFP (Main Force Patrol) 5 years ago in the first film now roams the depopulate and desolate desert after being traumatize by the death of his wife and child. He's now a scavenger looking for food, drink, and gas. Think of the movie The Book of Eli with Denzel Washington but this one came before it. I wonder who would win in a fight Max or Eli if they were to meet in a desolate desert with nothing but their hands and weapons. Now, that's a fight I gotta see! Well, back to the Mad Max movies. The third movie Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) has our lone wolf warrior Max being attacked and had his vehicle and belongings stolen from him. Max continues on foot and stumbles upon the nearby human outpost in the wasteland. It's the city of Bartertown being run by the ruthless Aunt Entity (Tina Turner). From there Max is force to fight in Thunderdome gladiator style for survival. You can watch these movies on your own if you wanna know what happens next. Now we have this new one called Mad Max Fury Road (2015) which stars Tom Hardy as Mad Max aka the guy who played Bane in the Dark Knight Rises if you guys don't know! It seems to be a reboot of the series so it might take place in an alternate universe from the previous Mad Max movies. The other cast are Charlize Therone as Imperator Furiosa! There's more characters on the list but I'm not gonna list them. You can look them up yourself if you want. The movie is once again being directed by George Miller the same guy who did the first two Mad Max movies so this should be pretty good! I was quite intrigued by the teaser trailer already! If you guys are also familiar with the Fist of the North Star (Hokuto No Ken) anime and movie then that movie was influenced a bit by the Mad Max movies. I"m sure that the creator was inspired by the Mad Max series to create an amalgamation of Mad Max and Bruce Lee put together! You can tell by the desert wasteland and future settings in both the Mad Max and Fist of the North Star franchise are pretty similar as well as the punk like enemies! The only difference is that Max doesn't know martial arts and relies on weapons while Kenshiro relies on his Hokuto Shinken art to punch and blow up his enemies by hitting their pressure points causing them to explode in a nasty mound of flesh and guts! XD I wanna see this new Mad Max but they should at least put Mel Gibson in there and make a cameo or something as well as include some Easter eggs or something. I also believe there's an upcoming Mad Max game coming out! I don't know if it's related to the movie or will be a separate thing of itself and set to come out on 2015 according to the infos out there. It's a vehicular combat and action adventure type of game as the description described it and should be similar to the movies.
As you can see down below, Kenshiro's outfit is inspired by the one Mad Max wears. Of course they're two different franchise but something being inspired by another thing isn't a sin or a bad thing. I think that makes it more awesome!

Okay! I've been surfing the infinite knowledge world of the interweb lands again when I stumbled across another awesome video! This video is basically just a trailer for a live action Akira but is fanmade so that means low budget and all that. These group seems to have captured the essence of the anime Akira movie which came out back in 1988. My question though is that will this fanmade live action Akira be based off the movie or the manga. I believe it's just a trailer but if they're actually planning to make a full length movie then that would be cool. The movie and the manga/graphic novel series have all the characters like Kaneda, Tetsuo, the bike gangs, clown gangs (they're a rival of Kaneda's gang), the espers (those shriveled kids with psychic powers), Colonel Shikishima, etc. The difference between the two is that the movie has basically summarized the long graphic novel and made Akira deceased and just has his vital organs which were placed in capsules after Tetsuo discovered them in a huge vault under the Tokyo Olympic Stadium. The graphic novel on the other hand has the incredibly powerful psychic kid Akira alive and well and is also going around destroying the army alongside Tetsuo basically making them godlike! So my question to the ones making this live action Akira is that will this be based off the movie or the graphic novels. If you guys don't know the movie Akira, it's a very complex anime movie and is one of the best around well at least at the time it was made. It's a cyberpunk animated film that explores political corruption, experimentation, gang warfare, military, chaos, psychic powers, teen angst, etc. It has lots of elements around it that explores the supernatural and the reality. It's basically similar to what Godzilla represents like in the new Godzilla movie I just saw. Akira was created because man wanted absolute power like with the nuclear bombs so Akira was the result of this. Akira is basically just an ordinary kid but through experimentation by the government made him incredibly powerful to the point that he caused a nuclear like explosion that destroyed Tokyo! This started World War III in the story! It seems Tetsuo was going through a similar path after his powers were awakened by one of the shriveled up esper kid. If you haven't seen the anime movie and read the graphic novels then I recommend you do. They're kinda mature themed and aren't really kid friendly so just a little warning. They're also pretty violent and graphic! Check down below for the fanmade live action trailer as well as some Akira videos and pics. Also if you wanna see something similar to Akira then check out the movie Chronicle. It also has a bunch of kids with psychic powers but isn't as complex and deep a story as Akira. There's that movie Scanners with Michael Ironside as the villain Darryl Revok with psychic powers blowing a person's head off. Carrie is also another movie with a girl with psychic powers. I also remember that one movie called Push with Dakota Fanning. It wasn't really that good but it was okay. Oh, let's not forget M. Bison. He's got psycho powers because psycho crusher! That's why! lol Sorry, I've been playing a lot of Street Fighter games so I'm still stuck in that mode after seeing Street Fighter Assassin's Fist. Yeah, it was that good!
A pic of Kaneda above in live action as it's shown. He's pretty much the main character in the anime film but not in the graphic novel and the one who could help out but even so he can't stop the destruction of Neo Tokyo anyway.
This is Akira the boy who develop incredibly destructive power that destroyed Tokyo through experimentation! Even though the title of the anime movie is Akira he's just a side character while in the graphic novel he is the main character. Weird. I wish writers would stick to the source material. I would really have liked it if they kept true to the original manga/graphic rather than changing it in the anime movie. It's great animated film but my only complaints is that it's not the same as the original source.
Here above is Kaneda's gang along with Tetsuo (not pictured) and down below of the same group riding around in their motorbikes.
Here's Tetsuo Shima the angsty teen who acquired incredible psychic power as well and went berserk on everyone because of his inferiority complex. You could say that he's the main antagonist in the story. He's lashing out against the world probably because of the oppression he felt. Now that he's acquire this psychic power he's become even more corrupt and unstable thus causing him to use his powers to destroy and kill anyone in his way! He can't seem to control the power though and causes painful headaches, suffering, and mutations in his body.
Above is a mutation of Tetsuo showing how his power is going out of control and how his body can't handle it any longer as it keeps getting stronger ang going beyond his body's limitations.

I just saw all 12 episodes of the live-action web series Street Fighter Assassin's Fist which is based on the Street Fighter franchise! It's more base off Street Fighter Alpha and the early days and origins of Ryu and Ken from childhood to adulthood as well as their Master Gouken and his past! They learn the truth of the martial arts that they practice the ancient killing art of Ansatsuken which literally translates to (暗殺拳 Assassination Fist) and learn of Gouken's past, his brother Goki (he is best known as Akuma in the games), and the fate of master Gotetsu. The series is developed by director, fight choreographer, writer, actor and martial artist Joey Ansah; actor, writer and martial artist Christian Howard and Academy Award-nominated film producer, Jacqueline Quella. The series really explores the core of Street Fighter and the main characters. Unlike past Street Fighter movies like the one with Jean-Claude Van Damme (I like it because of nostalgic reasons but having rewatch now seems more like just a joke) and the recent one with The Legend of Chun Li with Kristin Kreuk which doesn't focus on the origins and completely changes the source materials, this one truly focuses on the main characters of the Street Figher Alpha series origins. I'm not hating on the actors of these movies. I liked Van Damme in Bloodsport and I'm sure Kristin is good in other media but these movies just aren't good. I can tell that a lot of love and passion was put into this web series! I gotta give them that! Also, the soundtrack is amazing which really adds to the atmosphere and really goes straight into the feels! I also gotta give the cast and the crews 2 thumbs up for the awesome fight scenes and amazing scenery background where the series was shot! I also like the character growth and development in this series! You can really tell as you watch each episode as they mature and learn! Street Fighter 2 World Warrior unlike this series base on Alpha introduces the rest of the characters like Chun-Li, Guile, M. Bison, Sagat, etc. but this series doesn't do that yet. You can call this one Season 1 I guess and focuses on the origin stories of Street Fighter which has Akuma as the main antagonist before the World Warrior Tournament which has M. Bison as the main antagonist. You can check out Street Fighter 2 The Animated Movie if you want post Alpha series when Ryu and Ken are older and are already out exploring the world. This web series is kinda like Rocky 1 and the World Tournament is kinda like the Rocky sequels so there. This series is before all that. The web series is loosely based of the anime as well which you should check out like Street Fighter Alpha Generations and Street Fighter Alpha The Animation. All 12 episodes of the web series is available on youtube for free on Machinima's channel for you to watch! You can also check out the Street Fighter Legacy youtube channel which are the guys who made this awesome web series! Check down below for all the parts of the series!

So I've been browsing the interwebs again and stumble upon this latest news. It seems that the popular video hosting website Youtube is considering buying the gaming streaming site TwitchTV which is where I stream games once in a while. I might do it later. Could this be a good move for video hosting giant? TwitchTV was unknown before and slowly became popular overtime thanks to gamers and gaming sites! It gets 43 million monthly users since it started three years after its launch so it maybe mostly gaming related but that's potential for growth I guess. Man, there's a lot of buying happening lately like Apple buying Dr. Dre's Beats, Disney buying Maker Studios, and now this! I guess you could look at it in a perspective when it comes to potential growth that's all I can say. All this combined media might help promote their brand further and introduce more gamers, consumers, etc. Livestreaming video games and ESports is becoming a hit and it seems that they're even making it a big tournament nowadays and even compares it to the X Games sports and such. Google Youtube may have notice the amount of audience the gaming community in TwitchTV had so they consider this move! People actually like watching live streaming of gamers play games and that interaction with other gamers in live broadcast makes the experience simultaneous because its live and happening at that very moment compared to pre-recorded videos. Gaming is huge right now and has gotten bigger compared to the 80s and 90s! I believe that gaming is never gonna crash because people wanna be entertained just like how movies entertain people! People want that stuff and they need it! For those on the other hand that are trying to kill gaming then you're just trying to take something aways that's been around for decades! It's part of history now and entertainment gives people that escape to have fun once in a while or if not once then maybe several times! Well, what do you guys think? Would this affect the gaming community of TwitchTV in a negative way or if Youtube buys it would help grow the audience and introduce livestreaming gaming to more people? There's already a gaming community in Youtube but the gaming community in TwitchTV is bigger because of the constant interaction with livestreamers and the audience! I like watching someone play games there and the tournaments in the fighting games, MOBA games, speedrunning games, etc! I love that stuff! What about your thoughts guys?

First, let's discuss the whole legend behind the ET Atari Cartridge Landfill. The year was 1983. Gaming was in its infancy before 3D gaming and everything was 8 bit with the bleeps and bloops. The technology wasn't as advance, complex, and sophisticated as the ones today. The Atari 2600 was the home console at the time along with other ones like Intellivision, Comodore, Coleco Vision, and so on. The movie E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial directed by Steven Spielberg was a box office hit! Atari wanted to ride the success of the movie by coming up with a video game base on the movie. The problem with this is that the game was developed by one person who is Howard Scott Warshaw. The game was also given only one month to be develop which isn't enough time and with one person to do it all then that's a recipe for disaster! The game has poor controls and didn't even look like the movie to add to that. Atari went with it and because gaming was already at a downward spiral at that time with sales way down and a lot of unsold games and consoles the ET Atari game pretty much put the nail in the coffin! This cause the video game crash of 1983! It was a massive recession of the video game industry that occurred between 1983 to 1985. The only reason the gaming industry was revived was because of Nintendo and the NES that kickstarted it back from the grave! According to the legend, Atari had millions of unsold copies of the Atari ET game and they decided to dump and bury all these copies along with other unsold Atari products in the landfill on the City of Alamogordo, New Mexico with the help of several trucks. Rumor has it that this was just a legend but then just a few days ago an excavation took place there with hundreds of gamers and also Microsoft involved they finally debunked the rumors. It was true after all! They find several copies of the infamous game and other gaming stuff which prove that the legend was true after all! If you ask me, I think we've unearthed something evil which will be unleashed upon the world if we don't return this to its burial site! O.O lmao The mayor of that area is also pretty interested in that whole deal and said that it could help introduce people there to help with tourism and the economy and all that. Check out below for some pics on the whole deal! Now, they should send those cursed cartridges into space, bury them in the moon, or even Mars! lol
Here's Microsoft's Major Nelson at the dig site holding an ET Atari cartridge! With this evil unleashed, it will be the end of all of us! NOOOOOOO!!! lmao

Lately, we've been getting a lot of Dragon Ball games. The thing that really doesn't innovate about all these Dragon Ball games is that they are all fighting games and just focuses on that. I would like an action-adventure type of Dragon Ball games with leveling up system of an RPG game but the gameplay of a fighting game. I'd also like there to be a huge world to explore teeming with life, races, groups, villains, monsters, aliens, etc. The only thing that comes in mind is the South Korean MMORPG Dragon Ball Online. This is a massive multiplayer online role-playing game being developed simultaneously in Japan and South Korea by NTL, set in the Dragon Ball universe, first introduced by the Dragon Ball Japanese manga in 1984. A beta testing of Dragon Ball Online was initially announced to begin in South Korea during the summer of 2007, but was delayed until January 2010. Although a Japanese beta test had been planned to follow shortly after the initial 2007 Korean beta testing it still has not started. NTL Director Koji Takamiya has stated in numerous interviews that he would also like to see a global release for the game, but official plans have yet to be revealed. Series creator Akira Toriyama has a great deal of creative control over the project, both contributing to and supervising the story and art design, including character and location arrangements. It has been stated that Toriyama has worked on character designs for this project for over five years. On September 26, 2013 the Korean servers of the game have been shut down. On October 31, 2013 the Hong Kong and Taiwan servers of the game were shut down, effectively ending Dragon Ball Online. This could really have great potential because there are so many Dragon Ball fans out there worldwide and because they decided to shut this down like Capcom shut down Mega Man Online (also an MMORPG with potential) then we won't see this thing take off! Oh, well. What do you guys think? Could Dragon Ball Online have taken off and gain success if they didn't shut it down? The problem is that they didn't release it anywhere else.

Not everyone knows what cryptocurrency is. People lately have been talking about Bitcoin but what about the other cryptocurrencies out there like Litecoin, Dogecoin, Peercoin, Nxt, Mastercoin, and so on and so forth. These other ones are called altcoins. There are tons of other cryptocurrencies aka altcoins out there and some new ones are being made as well. I even stumbled upon weird ones like Potcoin, Fuckcoin, Piggycoin, etc. I'll post videos about these down below. Right now, my favorite amongst all these is the Dogecoin. Doge started off as an internet meme joke starring this cute Shiba Inu dog. Now, Dogecoin is competing against the top cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Litecoin. TO THE MOON as they say and I really am rooting for Doge to reach the moon! Such coin so moon! Wow! lol Unlike Bitcoin which only has 21 million or more coins, Dogecoin has over 100 billion Doge in existance! Dogecoin has also been use and shown in a positive light because of all the charities and sponsors it contributed to. The Dogecoin community and foundation have encouraged fundraising for charities and other notable causes. On January 19, 2014, a fundraiser was established by the Dogecoin community to raise $50,000 for the Jamaican Bobsled Team, which had qualified for, but could not afford to go to, the Sochi Winter Olympics. By the second day, $30,000 worth of Dogecoin was donated, and the Dogecoin to Bitcoin exchange rate rose by 50%. The Dogecoin community also raised funds for a second Sochi athlete Shiva Keshavan. As of 13 February 2014, Dogecoin has a market capitalization of USD$81 million. On March 25, 2014, the Dogecoin community successfully raised 67.8 million Dogecoins (around $55,000 at the time) in an effort to sponsor NASCAR driver Josh Wise. Wise ran a Dogecoin-sponsored paint scheme at the Aaron's 499 at Talladega Superspeedway. That is awesome if you think about it! All the cryptocurrencies of course always fluctuate in price going up and going down everyday and you can't really tell. One thing is for certain though. Despite what people claim about Bitcon dying or ending, these things won't really go away now because they are digital. They are part of the internet now and could eventually get adapted as a real form of currency alongside normal currencies use in the world if not now maybe someday. We use debit cards and credit cards which are plastic and is electronic so why not cryptocurrency. Not everyone will like this, not everyone wants to be part of this, and there are of course doubts and concerns regarding the so called volatile nature of the rising and falling of the price of cryptocurrency aka digital currency. What do you think? Will people eventually adapt this cryptocurrency in the future? It will probably take a long time before that happens but some stores are already accepting Bitcoin. It's not quite mainstream yet but it will get there eventually. After the whole deal with Mt. Gox and being involve with Silk Road and the black market of course there will be doubts about Bitcoin. People had doubts about the internet decades ago and thought it wasn't going anywhere now look at people nowadays. Everyone is using the internet even though their mobile phones. Also even if the power goes out people have there mobile phones to use as their digital wallet for their cryptocurrency so it's not going anywhere whether you like it or not just like youtube, video games, HD TVs, IPads, etc. aren't going anywhere either. The world is changing and advancing and the only thing you can do is accept it like everything else. It's part of technology and technology is always evolving, changing, getting faster, getting smaller, becoming more advance, becoming more mobile, etc. This cryptocurrency like every gadget in your house is just in its infancy and will evolve further into the future. Back then computers were the size of refrigerators or bigger and look at were we are now. We can hold it in the palm of our hands! The cryptovolution is now! Do you wanna be part of it or be against it?
If you like this article that I made, please tip me some Doge! Such thank you! Much coin! Wow!

Well, I saw the trailer. I got mixed feelings. On the one hand, I'm really happy and glad that they're kickstarting and hyping up the TMNT franchise with this movie. On the other hand, they might completely butcher the original story and origins if they decided to change a lot of stuff too much. I don't have faith on Michael Bay and Megan Fox isn't really the best actress out there. She's always been just eye-candy showing her ass, curves, and skin in revealing outfit. Sigh. Also, the way they depicted the turtles in this new TMNT are really huge, muscular, and bulky! They've really been working out haven't they! They've acquired all kinds of gains! lmao Their face also looks kinda wierd and different. Well, I guess that's
how they look if they're made to be real compared to their older
counterparts. This is a different universe to the other TMNT just like each series, movie, and comic are different from each other. I know that this will help introduce new fans to the franchise and this new generation to the Turtles even further even though the new cg cartoon series shown in Nickelodeon has done that already. I remember watching the 80s cartoons, the live action movies, and the newer cartoons and CG movie. I've loved the Turtles since I was a kid. I even got the action figures but don't have them anymore. That was a long time ago. Well, let's go with this new trailer. We see a scene of crime and destruction being created by what looks like terrorists or something. I guess they're suppose to be similar to the Foot Clan. Only this time unlike the original live action where the Foot Clan is hiring young kids and turning them into criminals we have guys with guns blowing up buildings and stuff. We then see some action going on in a train station and Megan Fox who is playing the reporter April O'Neil is recording video footage of the action with her phone! We then see more action sequences between what appears to be Leonardo fighting the bad guys. We hear William Fichtner who is suppose to play the Shredder talking to April O'Neil (Megan Fox) over the trailer how "heroes are not born but created", etc. We then see more action sequence with the turtles doing flips and sommersaults as well as that pretty cool awesome scene in the snow which appears to be Raphael and Donatello falling down a snowy mountain and slamming into a vehicle. The scene at the end reveals Leo and Mikey meeting up with April for the first I guess that's why she passed out. I'm sure that they're still the fun and pizza loving Turtles we know and love with each of their own unique personalities and skills. I was kinda iffy about their new looks at first and kinda skeptical. I then decided to give this a chance. Even though I hated what Michael Bay did to the Transformers franchise he's not directing this movie but only producing it. Jonathan Liebesman (known for movies like Battle Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans which I liked, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning 2006, Darkness Fall which I also like, etc.) is directing this movie and also the original authors of the first black and white TMNT comic Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird are involve with writing this movie! I have faith in these three guys to deliver for us and do the TMNT movie justice! So all I'm gonna say is that give this movie a chance! You haven't seen the movie so just judge it after you've seen it! Check below for the trailer and some pics about this movie!

I've been a big fan of the Devil May Cry series since day 1. I got my hands on Devil May Cry 2 back in 2003 back in my high school days. Those were good times. Love playing that game. It wasn't the best in the series but it was what introduce me to the franchise. I then got my hands on Devil May Cry 1 the original afterwards and fell in love with it. The fans are currently divided as far as I'm aware. The older DMC franchise with white haired Dante vs the DmC's dark haired Dante who's hair eventually turned hair in the end. Well, before we get ahead of ourselves let's focus on the original series. It was back in 2005 when the series really started to take off even further with the success of Devil May Cry 3 Dante's Awakening. I got my hands on the Special Edition version which is has lowered difficulty compared to the original Devil May Cry 3. DMC3 Special Edition has more features though like Bloody Palace, playing as Vergil, Jester battles, etc. Well, that game really show how it it's done in the hack n slash genre since the original Devil May Cry. It was fast pace, had combo chains, weapon switching on the fly, style switching, etc. along with the hyper fast 60fps blazing speed of Dante's moves and powers! It must be his youthful energy and demonic heritage. I've played the new DmC and am gonna say that it wasn't bad. I wasn't disappointed but am not impress either. Yeah, bring on the hate train and attack if you must. My will and decision stands strong and that is the power of individualism that I stand for. Heh. Well, let's get back to it. I can see though very obviously that the new DmC has gameplay inspired by the previous games. It just doesn't have the same fast and blazing speed of gameplay though. It doesn't even come close. If you were to compare the abilities, endurance, recovery, powers and strengths of the two Dantes from the original white haired to the new Dante the new Dante's powers just pale in comparison. I'm also gonna say the gameplay is slower. You didnt't hear me complain about the story though. Well, I'm not trying to be bias either because I've played all of them and my conclusion is that Devil May Cry 3 is the best in the series! Devil May Cry 4 had the potential to be great because Dante's gameplay in that game has been perfected and weapon and style switching was instantaneous compared to previous games. The only problem with DMC4 is that it focused too much on Nero when it should have just been about Dante. Now, I'm gonna talk about any future plans for a new Devil May Cry. I'm gonna advoce Capcom to stick to the older franchise. These are the reasons why. There are so many established characters already to tap on like Dante of course, Vergil, Trish, Lady, Nero, Sparda, and of course I have forgotten about the redheaded Lucia as well. You see if all these characters are made playable in a new Devil May Cry it will completely change the whole playing field of the series! Give them their own stories and cutscenes and what not. The reason that I said to include Vergil and Sparda even though those two are diseased or have disappared for good is because we need to know their side of the story. Sparda is the one we need to focus on and what made him a full blooded demon turn against his own kind and sealed the demon world as well as defeating Mundus and his demonic armies. We need to see how Eva met Sparda. Sparda has been mentioned a few times in the series being Dante and Vergil's father and the one who gave them their weapons and amulets but we haven't really see a complete story base on him. We know that Sparda is a devil disguising himself as a human so he's not gonna be handsome in his true demon form. It's like that story of Beauty and the Beast with Bella. Eva and Sparda's stories are kinda similar and I believe that Sparda was the first demon to shed a tear for his love one Eva. Sparda also pitied the humans and decided to defect against his own kind. Now, as I mentioned earlier I listed all the characters that should be playable if they were to make a new Devil May Cry and use the older franchise route. If on the other hand Capcom decides to continue the new DmC series with a sequel instead then that's their decision too. It just won't have as much impact if they focus on Dante, Vergil, and Kat again. Do you see what I mean? It is gonna start to get old fast and you can only put so much story, focus, and gameplay on the same characters that they start to get old. I mean since Capcom believed this new DmC is so much more hip than the older series then a newer generation will start to see that it gets old too and pretty soon outdated. It's just popular and trendy at the moment but eventually forgotten later on. I'm not trying to diss the fans of new DmC, I'm just trying to understand why they are trying so hard to downgrade and attack the older franchise. It's like they have a reason or vendetta against older Dante or something. I've played them all like I said even the new DmC. I've gotten really good actually on all of them but am not pro skill yet. I'll get there eventually with more practice. What do you think? Should Capcom bring back the older franchise if they were to develop a new Devil May Cry or should they stick to the new DmC and continue from that? Everyone will have differing opinions so please don't attack one another for having differing opinions. I'm just saying that you gotta respect other people despite their difference in their likes or in favor of. I don't care if you like older Dante or new Dante. I don't care if you hate the older franchise or like the newer franchise and vise versa. That's your opinion. Now, that I've said that. You gotta respect my opinion if you want me to respect yours. I'm also aware that if a younger generation is introduce to newer DmC then they'll probably like it better. If they're introduce instead to the older franchise and then to the the new then they'll probably like the older franchise. I'm also aware that preference and likes might switch and now they like the newer DmC not the older franchise. Check out below for more Devil May Cry series and DmC videos and pics.
Do you prefer this series?
or this new one. Remember! Everyone will have differing opinions, likes, and dislikes, etc. Respect that please!

I just saw this gameplay footage of Mighty No. 9 on youtube! I must say that I am impress! It looks pretty good! We see Keiji Inafune himself playing the game. I know that the game isn't finish yet. It's still undergoing development and they're still trying to polish it up. We see Mighty No. 9 aka Beck being able to jump, run, dash, dash in mid-air, fire his arm cannon, etc. It's like they've combined the powers and abilities of both Mega Man and Mega Man X into one and created this! Also, one more awesome thing! I just saw Mighty No. 9 shoot diagonally not only straight but also upwards in an angle! Does that mean that he'll be able to shoot in different directions as well not just forward? Holy crap! Now, this is the same way the Contra games by Konami characters shoots! Awesome! In addition, Beck can also do a stomp move, hang on the side of ledges, and grab onto rings like in Donkey Kong Country. We still haven't seen Beck's ability to transform his body into different machines, mechanisms, gears, and such. They'll probably show that later. I can't stress enough how excited I am for this game! This is at the top ten list of my most anticipated games for maybe next year. I don't know the other games yet but we'll see. I'm also digging the graphics styles! It has that 2D and 3D hybrid like Mega Man Powered Up and Mega Man X7-X8. It's perfect for a modern and classic style of game combined into one! I'm not gonna give this game a perfect score just yet so I'll wait until the game comes when I get my hands on it. We also see a list of the bosses or other Mighty No. robots being shown in the video on top of the gameplay in concept art style so they're not final yet. It's a pretty good list and I can't wait what they got more in store for the future of this game! This is also a good way for the Indie developers to aspire to with projects like this! It will really help these small time game developers make it and get notice! Here are some words by Inafune:
In this talk he recalled that the feeling of creating the first Mega Man game back in the 80s was comparable to that of making an indie game today. He reminisced that “Mega Man was the first original total that came out of our team in those days” and said:
In a way, if we’re talking about what’s big budget or not, in a way I would say that was our indie movement. We were not really doing what was asked by us; we were not necessarily adhering to what was requested to our team.
In that same vein Inafune also claimed that:
The heart of indie lies in those days. We’re still connected with fans in those ways.
