Is Doom the New Diablo?
The people cry out in terror as the legions of hell pour out across the earth. Demons and unholy abominations stalk the night slaughtering the innocent. As they cower in fear and beg for mercy, they cry out for a savior! Who will liberate them from unholy genocide? Is there a guardian who can purge this evil from the land? They pray to the heavens.They cry out for a champion, a savior. They ask for barbarian, the wizard, the demon hunter, and the necromancer, but their prayers go unanswered falling on deaf ears. No one is coming. But in the darkest hour when all hope is lost a lone man stands tall alone amidst the blazing hellscape. A man fitted in green battle armor with a gaze so cold and merciless it could freeze hell itself, he steps forward with a single unrelenting purpose. Rip and tear until it is done. A new champion has come to answer the people’s prayers and deliver us from evil. A man known by one name whispered in reverence and fear by those he slaughters and that name is the Doom Slayer.
What is the Appeal of Star Wars?
On Thursday December 20th the final film in the Star Wars saga will hit theaters. Star Wars Rise of the Skywalker will be the last film in the final trilogy completing the 9 film series. But unlike the other brands in the Disney bank like Pixar or Marvel. Star Wars seems to be at a bit of a crossroads. Disney has managed to try and ramp up the Lucas Films production pipeline to match the other juggernaut brands under its watch. Pixar before it was acquired used to release their movies more sporadically. But now we typically get at least one new release a year and sometimes even two a year. Marvel managed to produce a new movie each year but after 2010 they’ve only been ramping up their slate going from just one a year to two and now we’re living in an era where we see 3 marvel movies released every year and audiences still hasn’t grown tired of it.
The Chaotic Cacophony of Cats
Nearly a 100 years ago famed Russian composer Igor Stravisnky introduced one of his most seminal and lasting contributions to the musical world with the debut of his composition of the rite of spring. A musical piece so radical and jarring that when it first debuted in the Paris ballet in 1913 that it literally caused a riot in the theater. Nobody’s quite sure what spawned the riot, whether it was a publicity stunt or that the audience was not prepared for what they had witnessed. Something chaotic that would build the foundations of music for the century that followed, but also something that served as a harbinger for the next decades of chaos and brutality that would follow with World War 1 starting up a year later with the even greater horrors of world war 2 to come.
14 Best English Anime Dubs of All Time
Amongst nerds who love anime, there is one subject that is even more controversial than such classic arguments as whether or not the Star Wars Christmas Special is cannon. When it comes to anime, the big debate is whether or not it’s better to watch the sub or the dub. It’s a topic so contentious at conventions that entire screening rooms can burst out in vicious brutal screaming matches as the unruly cosplay masses vie to see which continent can shout down the other side. On one side, the sub contingent believes that most anime is better heard in its original language. Voice acting is treated as a much bigger deal over in Japan where some VO performers are treated like superstar idols.
Netflix and Chill or Disney+ and [email protected]$%
On November 12th, Disney will launch their exclusive streaming service Disney Plus, firing the first salvo in what will become one of the bloodiest most brutal competitions in the world of media and entertainment. They will begin the great streaming wars. Netflix has evolved from a cute little niche DVD rental service into a tech behemoth completely reshaping the way the world consumes entertainment. With over 151 million subscribers worldwide, Netflix has become a digital buffet trying to cater towards every niche taste imaginable and racking up tremendous amounts of debt to continue to feed their audiences endless appetite for content, with some estimating the amount of debt to be as high as 20 billion dollars to make sure you're stocked with new seasons of Stranger Things.
What Is the Appeal of 'Destiny'?
Destiny has become one of the greatest enigmas in the gaming sphere in the past few years. One of the biggest new IP’s to launch during the twilight of the seventh generation and the beginning of the 8th console generation for all intensive purposes, this series should have been dead on arrival considering the considerable critical drubbing it received on release and for good reason.
The Death of 'My Hero Academia's' All Might
All Might is the central pillar holding up My Hero Academia. But he has death flags all over him and I have some conflicted feelings about this. First of all let me clarify things. Fear not, All Might is not dead. He is still alive in well in the manga, but throughout the manga there have been numerous times where his death has been not so subtly foreshadowed.
These Aren't Your Dad's Superheroes
Remember those Batman and Superman guys. Pretty lame right. And even those Marvel movies are all the same. I mean I watched a video essay where a guy told me as much, how they all look generic and grey and have shitty music that all sounds the same. But my parents love all that generic mass market cape shit. Even my grandma thinks she’s cool because she knows who Groot and Rocket Racoon are, but you know what I’m sick of it because
Best Games from 'Pokemon' Developer Game Freak You've Never Heard Of
Pokémon fever is once again sweeping the nation, thanks to the one-two punch in 2016 of Pokémon Go and the release of the seventh generation Pokémon games, Sun and Moon and Pokemon Sword and Shield right around the corner. While all of you might be rushing grab your Nintendo Switch so you can catch all 801 Pokémon in the never ending quest to become the very best and all that, one thing you might not be aware of is the fact that Pokémon developer Game Freak actually has a storied development history and has made other games outside of Pokémon. Sure, they’ve been a practical Pokémon factory, producing all seven generations of Pokémon games as well as their respective spin-offs, but before and even during their Pokémon development cycle, they’ve managed to put out a few games that might surprise even the most diehard of Pokémon fans. Before they were even a video game developer, Game Freak was a self-published fanzine that was created by studio founders Satoshi Tajiri and Ken Sugimori in the 1980s.
The Explosively Subtle Character Development of 'My Hero Academia's' Katsuki Bakugo
Katsuki Bakugo is easily one of the most interesting characters in My Hero Academia. What makes his especially interesting though, is how aggressively unlikeable he is. It’s obvious that his dynamic is designed to elicit comparisons to the rivalry/ bromance of Naruto and Sasuke. The major difference being that while Sasuke has a traumatic backstory to justify his sullen aloofness and his edgy emo behavior, Bakugo has nothing to justify his general dickishness.
All Might from 'My Hero Academia' Is the Hero We Deserve and the One We Need Right Now
The greatest pillar holding up the entire series of My Hero Academia is All Might. He’s the classic superhero archetype. Basically imagine Superman filtered through the lens of shonen manga and you have All Might, and I think a great part of the series's core appeal lies with him, and how he’s the Superman archetype done right.
