My Thoughts on Mobile Suit Gundam NT

My Thoughts on Mobile Suit Gundam NT

When Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn first launched, it felt game-changing. A high-production continuation of the massively popular Universal Century timeline that actually continued the story rather than simply tell a side story during the original series or Zeta. The OAV series was massively popular, even spawning a television recut that even aired on Toonami. Now, Sunrise has created a sequel...

A Look at All the Differences in Japan's Nintendo Direct

A Look at All the Differences in Japan's Nintendo Direct

While there was a LOT to get excited for in the English versions of February 13th’s Nintendo Direct, the Japanese one actually had even more games stuffed into its runtime. Now, most of those exclusive games have already been announced to be coming out in the West (or are already released in certain cases), but it’s still nice to take a look at what’s coming to Japan. And for those games that...

What Games Could Appear on a GameCube Classic Edition?

What Games Could Appear on a GameCube Classic Edition?

Nintendo’s Classic Edition systems have done pretty well for them, forcing Sega to step up their game and finally cut ties with AtGames and now inspiring Sony to make a Classic Edition of their original Playstation system. But after taking a look at the rest of Nintendo’s 20th-Century systems, it’s time to take a step forward and look at a system that has gotten little love but is adored by...

My Thoughts on My Hero Academia the Movie: Two Heroes

My Thoughts on My Hero Academia the Movie: Two Heroes

With a Shonen Jump property as big as My Hero Academia is right now, it’s no surprise that a movie was incoming sooner or later. Well, that time is now. Is the movie Plus Ultra enough to stand alongside the awesome anime, or should it get failed out of the class for having no potential?

My Hero Academia the Movie: Two Heroes starts off with Izuku “Deku” Midoriya and Toshinori “All Might” Nagi...

Toonami's Expansion is Potentially Awesome, But Might Crash and Burn

Ever since coming back from the dead in 2012, Toonami has been a fixture on Saturday nights on Adult Swim. The greatest action block ever created that’s been building you a better cartoon show for 20 years has grown significantly since its revival to become a fixture on the Adult Swim half of Cartoon Network.

Toonami has introduced hundreds of thousands of fans to Attack on Titan and One-Punch...

Reacting to the 9/13 Nintendo Direct

Reacting to the 9/13 Nintendo Direct

After a week’s delay due to unexpected, but reasonable, circumstances, the September Nintendo Direct has finally aired. Filled with rapid-fire headlines, new game announcements, and a ton of news to go over, this Direct had something for everyone (except Metroid and Fire Emblem fans).

I know nobody gives a shit about my opinions for this Direct, but you know what? I’m gonna say them anyway....

What Games Could Appear on a Game Boy Advance Classic Edition? 

What Games Could Appear on a Game Boy Advance Classic Edition? 

With the success of Pokémon, Nintendo’s flagging Game Boy brand was re-energized and portable gaming became a major focus for Nintendo once again. The Game Boy Pocket and Color helped bring in a new generation of gamers, but the 8-Bit hardware was quickly becoming obsolete, despite several well designed games. Nintendo needed a portable console with a greater color palette, more horsepower,...

What Games Could Appear on a Game Boy Color Classic Edition?

After the revitalization of the Game Boy thanks to Pokémon, Nintendo started to design the true successor to the system that would eventually become the Game Boy Advance. However, to buy some time, they introduced the Game Boy Pocket, a smaller and sharper version of the original system, and soon after the Game Boy Color. Basically a Game Boy Pocket, except with the ability to FINALLY display...

What Games Could Appear on a Game Boy Classic Edition?

With the huge success of the NES Classic Edition and the SNES Classic Edition, people rightly assume that Nintendo will continue this line with the Nintendo 64 Classic Edition (which I did a theoretical games list for here ), though as others have noted, it presents its own problems.

However, it’s possible that Nintendo may not dive right into the N64 just yet. There’s one other system...

What Games Could Appear on a Nintendo 64 Classic Edition?

So, with the massive success of the NES Classic Edition and SNES Classic Edition, and the very likely possibility that the upcoming Nintendo Switch Online service will not have games past the SNES for a while, there’s been a lot of talk about Nintendo possibly releasing a Nintendo 64 Classic Edition and what games would be on it. Thought I’d throw my hat in the ring with a possible games...

Possible Echo Fighters for Every Smash Ultimate Character

Possible Echo Fighters for Every Smash Ultimate Character

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is shaping up to be the best in the series and arguably one of the best games ever made. One of the reasons for that is bringing a lot of fan favorite characters to the roster. In previous games, there has been consternation over “clones,” or characters who share movesets with another character.

However, Smash Ultimate has introduced a new class of fighter called...

Boomerang Should become a Broadcast Digital Subchannel

Boomerang Should become a Broadcast Digital Subchannel

For those who are unaware, Boomerang is the spinoff channel of the US edition of Cartoon Network. It was originally all about airing classic cartoons while the main channel started to create more originals and acquire newer shows. Ever since the channel’s creation, it’s been mostly ignored by the larger landscape. It doesn’t get much advertising on the main channel, the ratings have been...

A Guide to Over-the-air TV Digital Subchannels

With the rise of streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, more and more people have decided to cancel their cable and satellite subscriptions in a process known as “cordcutting.” I fully understand why, but a lot of people do miss channel surfing and watching live TV and the like. What to do? Well, why not get an antenna?

In 2009, television stations officially switched over from analog...
