AKA me letting you guys know that I'm not dead.
So, had an interesting Christmas. Got a Nintendo Switch, and instead of doing the expected and getting Zelda Breath of the Wild or Super Mario Odyssey, I chose to get Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Cause let's face it, compared to that game, Breath of the Wild and Mario Odyssey have tiny worlds.
Then, I had a bit of a lucky accident. When I was getting changed to work out at the gym, my 3DS XL, which I thought was on a safe perch, wound up slipping from the shelf I had put it on and landing in the toilet. How is that lucky, I hear you asking? Simple. I acted quickly enough that the damage wasn't too severe. But because it was damaged, I wound up getting a New 3DS and doing a system transfer. And, sinc…Read more >
Okay, at first my family was not that eager to see Justice League, because it had been getting some pretty bad reviews. But we have shown the ability to enjoy bad movies (as in, we saw the infamous Batman & Robin movie), and some friends who saw Justice League are saying it might not be as bad as the reviewers have said, so we're going to see about giving it a chance to stand on its own two feet.Read more >
Okay, so far I am liking Ultra Sun and Moon. Yes, the plot is similar to Sun and Moon, but they mix it up just enough to keep you guessing.
Also, where Sun and Moon had a great big space full of nothing in Hau'oli City, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon have the Pokemon Photo Club occupying that space. That alone arguably deserves to be called a win in my book.Read more >
Okay, I saw Thor: Ragnarok yesterday, and here are my thoughts on it.
First, they had some BRILLIANT comedy in there! Some real zingers were thrown around, and there was even some nice slapstick action!
Second, the fight scenes were very well-done! I can't help but be impressed by how those scenes went!
Also, he might have only been in there for a short amount of time, but Benedict Cumberbatch's Stephen Strange totally stole the show! He was ever so casually warping reality around himself and Thor when they were together, in a fine display of how much more adept he has become at using the Mystic Arts since the Doctor Strange movie ended. For example, he told Thor, "Pull up a chair." Next thing Thor knew, both of them were already sitting in c…Read more >
Okay, the revelation that Mina, the Fairy-type Captain in Sun and Moon, will actually have a trial in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon has me thinking we might get even more trials. Of course, that would require more Captains, but I can certainly think of some Trainers from Sun and Moon who would be qualified for the roles, considering what Pokemon types they used in Sun and Moon. Now, do keep in mind that this is pure Wild Mass Guessing, and I have absolutely no way of knowing if any of this will actually be true or not.
For a Captain for a Poison-type Trial, I think it would probably be the former big sis of Team Skull, Plumeria. She was already moving to life on the straight and narrow by the end of Sun and Moon, so I think, given her preference…Read more >
