New Biography on Indominus RexHello!New Biography on Indominus Rex1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Jurassic World.com has confirmed the Indomius Rex and released info on it. Now it seem its a mashup of different theropods and not waht we have heard before: Velociraptor,T.Rex Cuttlefish and Deathadder. It might have genetic material from those aswell from Carnotaurus, Majungasaurus,Rugops and Giganotosaurus. My thoughts ? well its something unique yet in the same way we might never see Carnotaurus in future Jp movies since I.Rex seems to be part Carno. BUt non the less im excited for this movie. Despite that many seems to dislike this new idea im open for it. We have to wait and see untill June 12 what Jurassic World and Indominus Rex will be like.
Today at Masrani, we have a fantastic announcement to make. Over the last three years, the brilliant minds at InGen, lead by the great visionary Dr. Henry Wu, have brought us a new attraction for Jurassic World – the likes of which have never been seen before. While I cannot reveal any important information behind its crea
A VERY personal journal...Last night I wasn’t feeling good and ended up writing a rambling mess of twitter posts about my very real problems.

Being a creator is terrifying sometimes. Fear of failure or inability can crush your soul and prevent you from doing the things you love. Over the past 3 years I've been struggling with this fear. And a large portion of it comes from the very real threat of my so-called haters.
I have so much I want to do... And I can tell you right now that I often don't do them because of the fear of repercussions. Every sin

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.

Age of Ultron TrailerUnscheduled LeakAge of Ultron Trailer4 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!”
Special Episode featuring ORAS Mega evolutionsHello! There's a brand new, not related to the sources I reported before, but takes in mind about something interesting. In last April, it was aired a special episode about mega evolutions, featuring a brand new protagonist which owns a Mega Charizard X (don't ask, but seems the franchise hates the Y evo or something) that wants to defeats all megas. There's no Ash, which is amazing, that new protagonist's personality is not bad, as he's not a kid but a young adult. So the thing is, there's gonna be a sequel episode next to this, this time, about the ORAS mega evolutions and, for special occasion, Rayquaza as well:Special Episode featuring ORAS Mega evolutions6 months ago in Personal More Like This

50 Years of Guarding the Universe
An American Doujinshi by Matt Frank and Josh Bugosh
In the year 1965, from the depths of an arctic glacier, awoken by an accidental atomic explosion, came crawling the Friend of all Children, the Guardian of the Universe, the Terrible Terrapin of Tokyo, GAMERA. Sweeping the Japanese box office, and quickly becoming an pop culture icon in his own right, Gamera captured the hearts of kaiju fans the world over, both young and old. After 12 feature films, Gamera’s 50th anniversary is upon us in the year 2015…and any rumors of a celebratory film were quickly silenced. As the months march on, it seems less and less likely that the mighty reptile will recieve his due, even as the kaiju genre enjoys a resurgeance in popularity.
Ergo, kaiju artist Matt Frank, best known for his work on IDW Publishing’s various Godzilla comic series, has begun work on a standalone story, The Last Hope. Intended to be produced as a one-shot, self-p

And....don't ask me, but Mega Latios and Latias look EXACTLY the same. Go figure!
Remember, those are hacked directly from the game, in another words, that's why the leaker managed to see them in the wild. That's why the lack of the mega symbol in the name. I dunno neither how he does it... but well, hackers are suckers in this stuff, better not question too much
In another matter of smaller significance is AZ's special Floette will be available as event sometimes, as the leaker found it too.

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.
Sorry Mario BrosSorry Mario BrosSorry Mario Bros2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Say what you will about Anita Sarkeesian, you gotta admit that people do take note of what she says for good or ill. In this piece of news, it's for the good.
As you might already know, in her latest video she outlined a simple "damsel frees herself" video game. Nothing too spectacular but it showcased how one can subvert the typical trope and make a strong female character out of it. While many were quick to criticize her for not making the game herself (given her kickstarter success), others took a more direct approach and actually made a game in 2 weeks.
The game is called "Sorry Mario Bros," and the plot is that Princess Peach decides to rescues herself by leaving Bowser's castle in world 8-4. You progress right to left through familiar, but slightly altered, original Mario Bros. worlds working your way backwards towards world 1-1. Along the way you can take detours and use Peach's float ability to reach hidden areas and collect "princess coins."
The Legend of Korra Season 3 (spoilers)Loved it. All the way through the whole damn season. Even with the episode leaks, the shift to web only, and whatever else Nick was throwing at them, they finally got the series back on track story-wise. I honestly didn’t think I would enjoy Korra after the first season pissed me off so much, but this 3rd season makes up for all the shortcomings and really ends on a solid note.The Legend of Korra Season 3 (spoilers)6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’m gonna try not to spoil too much since I really do recommend watching the 3rd season in it’s entirety if you can. It really is that good. Any complaints I’ve had about the first season are pretty much null and void at this point because of how good this season was. The animation was top-notch, the characters were a lot of fun and well written, the villains were complex and unique and sufficiently malicious, and the stakes were raised quite high during these last few episodes.
Honestly, that last scene of Korra in the wheelchair, recovering from her fight with Zaheer and shedding a sing
Stuff From E3 That I -Personally- Find InterestingI’ll be honest. I haven’t really been “in” to gaming in quite some time.

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.

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 Aran1 year 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.

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.

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.

Whether Nintendo knew it or not, those two sentences completely invalidate the events of Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Samus took orders from Admiral Dane, and she worked directly with the Federation army to secure the Pirate Homeworld and destroy Phaaze. If that doesn't qualify as a joint operation spearheaded by
SEGA emulates while BC is DSSEGA rips themselves offSEGA emulates while BC is DS4 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

Looks like crap. I don’t really have anything else to say other than it’s absolutely shitty design work. Apparently the story is that DA had a logo designing contest, but didn’t consult their lawyers till AFTER the contest began. The lawyers advised not using any of the submissions which is why we get this new ugly shitty logo that represents NOTHING about DA other than the usual blatant disregard for community input. Shame too, cuz the art from everyone else looks INFINITELY better than what DA eventually decided to go with.
I dunno if that story is true, but it sure sounds like it could be. Please feel free to correct me in the comments below if I’m wrong.

TRAILERS! Jurassic World + Star WarsJurassic WorldTRAILERS! Jurassic World + Star Wars3 months 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
