  • Nintendo Direct incoming tomorrow! Not a "Partner Showcase", not a "Mini-Direct", but a full fledged Nintendo Direct!! Maybe we'll finally see what Nintendo's been up to the last 12 months.

    There hasn't been any since September 2019 so it's about time they announced a real Direct.
    If the PS5's don't become more available soon, I may just break down and buy a PS4 Pro. The newer PS4 Pro models are pretty quiet, I hear....probably just come back to getting a PS5 a year from now, if that's the case.
    Godzilla vs. King Kong. Whoever wins, we lose.

    .....wait, are we back in 2004?!?
    I don't want a Playstation 5 for all of the new "next gen" games coming, I just want a PS5 so I can just play my PS4 games without my PS4 console sounding like a rocket engine blasting off. (...So tired of seeing the PS5's sold out everywhere....)

    We all are. Though I'm more interested in the Xbox Series X myself, simply because it has four generations of compatibility, which is pretty impressive.

    Yeah, Playstation's attitude of "no one wants to play PS1 or PS2 games" is pretty disgusting. Granted, if they just keep remastering all of the old games....

    Still, I want a PS5 (with disk drive), but I'm also thinking of eventually getting a Xbox Series S as a compliment.
    After countless hours of Scooby-Doo on Boomerang, it appears my kids' 3 favorite Scooby-Doo movies are "Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders", "Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase", and "Scooby-Doo: Curse of the Lake Monster".
    So why was it called "The Clone Wars" anyway? Shouldn't it have been called the Separatist Wars?

    Actually, it's strange to name any war after the grunts that fought in it. It was probably a ceremonial title given to the conflict a few years later (didn't most of the clones die from aging sickness just a few years after the Clone Wars ended?). And yes, I guess I'm kinda in a "Star Wars" mood tonight.

    I think it was Yoda who said "Begun, the Clone Wars has..." so maybe he sensed they'd prove a critical point in the war. And yeah, all the Clones had rapid aging.

    It's called the Clone Wars because it sounded cool to Lucas back in the 70s. Parsecs, Spice Mines, Clone Wars, etc.
    Been playing "Donkey Kong Country" on the Switch's Super Nintendo collection. Brings back good memories, and it's a very good, very relaxing 2D platform game.

    My first console was the Nintendo 64 (one of the games we got for it was DK64). It wasn't until 2012 that I got a SNES from a cousin; sometime that year, I got the first DKC title; I remember playing it then and again in 2020.

    The music for it is impressive (and, yes, often relaxing).

    I was in High school in 1995. I got my SNES for Christmas 1991. Or it might've been early 1992. I was pretty well done playing with SNES by it's last few years (1995-1997), so I missed out on Chrono Trigger and Donkey Kong Country 2. Still loved playing the original Donkey Kong Country though. From 1996 to 1998, I probably spent more time over at friend's houses playing on their Playstation and Sega Saturn. :D

    But again, I didn't fully dive into the Nintendo 64 until 1999.
    So....Warner Bros. basically gave up, didn't they? That's the explanation for the Wonder Woman announcement, isn't it?

    They "gave up" on trying to make a profit on the film. I mean, yeah, I'm looking forward to watching it on HBO Max (I already have a subscription to the service) but....if this ends up being a loss for the studio, what are the odds of getting a Wonder Woman 3?

    They were most likely already losing money on the movie though. And there's no guarantee that next year will be a better time for theaters, so delaying the movie again could have easily backfired on them. It could affect the chances of getting another sequel, but I think being delayed for months already did that. Plus, I'm not sure how safe filming for a movie or TV series is at this point.

    Well.....we'll just have to see what the next year holds. I'm not sure what movies are being filmed now. There was supposed to be an Aqua Man sequel getting ready to be filmed. I think everything's up in the air and undecided right now.
    It's early November and Christmas commercials have already overtaken my television....
    Well, "Tenet's" a box office failure. How likely is it that the Sonic movie from February is going to end up the highest grossing movie of 2020? (and how strange is that?)
    I'm finding I'm having to explain who every guest star is in "Scooby Doo and Guess Who?" to my kids. The only ones they know are Batman and Wonder Woman. George Takai, Whoopi Goldberg, Mark Hamill....they're all like "Who?!?"
    With the rumored "Mario 35th Anniversary" stuff out of the way, I would now expect a full blown Nintendo Direct to FINALLY come out in October or November (or maybe early December). Their way of saying "We know 2020 sucked, but look at all the awesome stuff coming out NEXT year!"
    I'm getting so sick of "Oh, Netflix has that movie! I'll be sure to watch it someday soon" and then 6 months later, when I'm in the mood to watch it "We're sorry, this movie has been removed from Netflix". I want it to always be available, not be burdened with rights expiring (this time it was the 1990 Ninja Turtle movie, which was on Netflix for months!).
    With all the new streaming services, there's something to be said for the "Free" streaming services still out there: PlutoTV, Shout Factory TV, Sony Crackle, and good ol' Youtube.
    Watch an episode of Scooby-Doo (1969) last night. The question out of my kids mouth: "Why is their laughter in the background?" Having to explain canned laughter in an old cartoon was....difficult.

JJ Abrams, Please Do Earth 2.
The DCEU will be so mind-blowingly awesome once we get there.
It seems like Colleen O'shaughnessy will still voice Tails for a bit, at least according to a tweet she put out.

I watched Tom and Jerry 2021 on HBO Max today and.......my god..... I have a lot to say about this movie...
