Secondly, this was a hell of a birthday surprise.
Yesterday, it was formally announced that Toho Studios would be reviving their OWN Godzilla film, set to be released in 2016, with production starting in 2015. Speculation abounds on the project, but the biggest question seems to be the focus on CGI or traditional Suitmation. The article cites the recent adaptation of the manga Parasyte as an example of the "high quality filmmaking" that Japan is currently capable of, but given the franchise's tradition of practical effects, and perhaps an unwillingness to appear inadequate when compared to the hundreds of millions spent of American SFX, we may be seeing something akin to Shinji Higuchi's Attack on Titan adaptation - a combination of sparse miniatures, green screening, props, CGI, and suits. One can only hope.

All New Marvel NOW! - Ms. Marvel
I’ve mentioned this here before, but I’ll do it again. This series, so far, has been awesome. It’s only 4 issues so far, but it’s a romp to read and the artwork is imaginative and fun. The story details about a Muslim teenager gaining super powers and donning the attire of Ms. Marvel. Kamala Khan is a hilarious character, and you really feel her struggles to get use to her new predicament. Like I said, only 4 issues so far, so we don’t really know what direction this story is heading... but overall it’s been a blast. Strongly recommend it if you can find it.

Captain America: Civil War - May 6, 2016
It’s already been confirmed that THIS version of Civil War will be vastly different from the comic book variation (owing largely to the fact that Marvel doesn’t own the rights to many of the supporting characters). Instead this version will be about some sort of government registration act to regulate super heros, and that Captain America and Iron Man will either try to run, or find issue with. So no, sorry, this won’t be Captain America vs Iron Man like we originally thought.
Side note: It’s been rumored that Black Panther will make a cameo appearance.

Necessary Background Info
If you’re like me and don’t follow 100% what’s going on in DC or Marvel comics right now, some of the events in the story come across unexplained. So here’s a quick little explanation for the main reason of how Kamala gains her powers.
During the end of the “Infinity” storyline, a Terrigen Bomb was detonated in Earth's atmosphere during the Inhumans' fight with Thanos, releasing Terrigen Mist upon the planet. This caused anyone who was a descendant of an “Inhuman” to develop powers of their own.
In Ms Marvel #1 (part of the All-New Marvel NOW! Point One series), we follow the exploits of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teenager born and raised in New Jersey
Stuff From E3 That I -Personally- Find InterestingI’ll be honest. I haven’t really been “in” to gaming in quite some time. Chock it up to the fact that I don’t own ANY of the current gen consoles and that my job has taken up too much of my life to really dedicate much time to playing anything. Even still, I browsed the announcements at E3 this year and this is what I have to say about some of them.Stuff From E3 That I -Personally- Find Interesting7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Wayforward’s success has allowed Shantae to finally get an ending to the 3 part storyline that spans decades. Starting from the Gameboy Color, going to NDS-ware, and now finally as a new game available both on the 3DS and Wii-U eShop. Wow... that’s kinda impressive for a small series that not many have heard about.

Age of Ultron TrailerUnscheduled LeakAge of Ultron Trailer2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Just to be clear, movie companies often “leak” stuff online themselves as a way of generating interest and views for their various projects. However, in the case of the Age of Ultron trailer leak, this was clearly NOT done by Disney/Marvel’s PR department. Marvel had been planning to unveil the trailer next week during an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. That show, while doing pretty good, isn’t performing as well as they had hoped and scheduling the release of the big trailer reveal during the show would’ve given a much needed viewership boost. Marvel had it all calculated and planned out, and this leak severely handicaps those plans. So yeah, I don’t think this was intentional at all, and might explain why the trailer doesn’t look entirely “finished” either. Though to be fair, Marvel handled the leak gracefully with a single tweet: “Damn it, Hydra!”
Mako Mori vs Samus AranSo I was watching Pacific Rim for the 50th time the other day and it suddenly dawned on me. Mako Mori is Samus Aran.Mako Mori vs Samus Aran11 months ago in Personal More Like This
As you are all probably aware, I’ve taken a lot of heat in the past for supporting Metroid: Other M, a revolutionary Wii game that had a very unfortunate English translation. The main bulk of Other M’s story focuses on Samus Aran taking orders from her former boss Adam Malcovich as they explore a derelict space station. Her complicated relationship with Adam is a central aspect to Samus’s character, but for reasons that still baffle me, the gaming communities have pretty much ripped to shreds their relationship as being “weak” and “disempowering towards female characters.”
I’ve explained in the past why I disagree with that assessment, but let’s try something else here. Let’s compare Samus Aran to one of the recent pinnacles of strong female characters in FILM: Pacific Rim’s Mako Mori.

Sad to see it go after doing 200 episodes. This has been one of my favorite comic related jobs I've ever had and an incredibly steady and reliable one at that. I personally would love to keep doing this job for a couple more years, but Brent and Dan both want to move on to other projects and we've all come to the mutual agreement that 200 is a perfect stopping point. Nothing lasts forever, ya know?

TRAILERS! Jurassic World + Star WarsJurassic WorldTRAILERS! Jurassic World + Star Wars1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Chris Pratt playing a straight role like that is a little odd to see. He’s so noted as a comedian and comic relief it’s a bit weird watching him take on a role that is just a straight up action macho guy. Outside that, though, I think it looks good. A hell of a lot better than Jurassic Park 3.
One thing to note though, I’ve seen a lot of fans complaining that the dinosaurs don’t have feathers or look like “real” dinosaurs do as we’ve learned more through paleontology. And while I understand that concern I honestly don’t care. My personal headcannon is that these are genetically modified dinosaurs supplemented with amphibian DNA. As a result the fact that they’re not 100% accurate to our current knowledge of dinosaurs if A-OK in my opinion. Not to mention it’s a continuation of the Jurassic Park world, so switching things up now would just look weird. The T-Rex and Velociraptor are such iconic
The Metroid Prime Games Never HappenedAfter posting that journal about how Mako Mori has parallels with Samus Aran, I kept thinking about how the chronology of the Metroid series doesn’t make much sense.

SEGA emulates while BC is DSSEGA rips themselves offSEGA emulates while BC is DS2 months ago in Personal More Like This
Not really. But SEGA did contact the team responsible for MAME (the popular 90‘s arcade emulation program) for a copy of a game they don’t have backups for. For me that’s actually really amazing and important. While emulation is technically illegal (sorry but owning a copy of the game does not automatically liberate you in the eyes of the law), if someone hadn’t copied the game illegally, SEGA would’ve lost the file and that would’ve been a game gone extinct forever.
This is one of the problems with how un-standardized video games were during their initial heyday. Each game having it’s own tech specs and requirements to be played, makes emulation and preservation of this art form challenging. If we don’t take steps to keep the games we love growing up alive, there’s a real possibility they could become extinct in the near future.
This is why I tend to look the other way on emulation and ap

So some of you might’ve seen that I attempted to do a “preview” of a comic on DA with a link to the full comic on my website. It was clearly a first attempt and the information I’ve gathered from it is still... inconclusive. According to statistics, the number of views didn’t really change at all compared to other posts where I didn’t have a link, but on the other hand I got more people communicating with me on my SYAC page for a change. There was also some confusion about if it was a preview or not, and that’s my bad for making such a terrible preview image. I’ll do better next time, I promise.
The whole point of this all is to try and generate more advert revenue on my various websites without bombarding y’all with pointless stuff or looking like i’m “whoring” my work. That’s one of the few things I kinda dislike about social network marketing... it can very easily turn

Here's the thing - with Kickstarter blowing up everywhere, and crowd-sourcing becoming viable, we could get Kaiju fans everywhere to pool their money, and get a game made. Not just any game, though! A game that exactly conforms to what WE, the fans who would pay for it, would want in a Kaiju battle game.
This isn't just idle speculation - Chris Mirjahangir, filmmaker from LA, got in touch with Simon Strange, the mastermind behind the last three Godzilla fighting games. After bringing me in, we all jumped onto Skype, and started banging around about what it would take to create a new, high-profile kaiju battle game. Turns out, "what it would take" is very dependent upon what we, the fans, would be willing to pay for.
So, in all seriousness, and FOR REALS I put out this question: What would you like to see in a new Kaiju battle game, and

Shame too, cuz the art from everyone else looks INFINITELY better than what DA eventually decided to go with.
