My Quick Thoughts on Ultraman X...


This is the Final blog I'll post all year, but I've got exciting things for 2016, What a year for tokusatsu, we've got Ninninger, Drive finished it's run, Power Rangers redeemed itself with Dino Charge, Ghost came (ummmmm.... Yay?), some niche toku like GARO and Fujiyama Ichiban came and went, and this is also the year tokusatsu that's not your typical Godzilla and Power Rangers became profitable, with more and more toku being released here legally.We've got some big things in store for 2016. One big thing that came out was Ultraman X (not to be confused with Ultraseven X or Kamen Rider X), showing currently running toku can be watched legally, but was it good?

My quick thoughts on Star Wars: The Force Awakens

ATATATATA!!!!!! 3-HIT COMBO!!!!!!!!!!
Mild Spoilers Ahead!

Short version, Solid B, Good but not great, Not as good as the original trilogy, maybe the next 2 movies will be the ones that determine this one's quality. Yeah, go see it, You'll have a good time...

You count the medals 1, 2, & 3! Life Goes on, anything goes, coming up OOO!!! Kamen Rider OOO Review


Over a year ago, I teased my OOO review along with it's movie, but I haven't seen the series yet. Now I have, what do I think of it (especially since people thought it belonged on the Top 5 Must See Kamen Rider Series over Wizard, but  you need to understand, Wizard has a special place in my heart (I won't explain why now, but keep assured, something like that is coming))? It's pretty good, don't see myself putting it over Wizard, but It makes the perfect companion show to the AMAZING GOKAIGER!!!! In all seriousness, OOO is a great series for those who liked Gokaiger back in the day.

Gaming Bits: Bandai Wonderswan (56k Warning)

We did it, the Final console of it's era. Not many of you know what this wonder (pun intended) of a console is, that's because it was only released in Japan, and did pretty well there too. It even got an 8% market share of the portable games market in Japan. an honor the Neo Geo Pocket Color couldn't boast about. It all started when things went bad with Nintendo and one of it's developers, Gunpei Yokoi, the creator of the Game Boy.

Sailor Moon SuperS Report Card

If the S in Sailor Moon S stood for Super, I have several questions on the title for this season. Why call this season SuperS? What does the other S in SuperS (SuperSuper? SuperStars (not to be confused with Sailor Stars)? Just plain S? WHAT?)? Is the term plural (refer to the first question for why even that doesn't make sense)? Anyway now that I've got my rambling out of the way, Here's the report card for the series...

Top 5 Must See Kamen Rider Series

I did this for super Sentai a little over a year ago, You bet your ass I'm doing this for The bug eyed, motorcycle riding, rider kicking badasses known as Kamen Riders. Kamen Rider is much Darker than Sentai, but it's more dense. So Kamen Rider isn't really the best introduction to toku. but I gathered a list of Kamen Rider Series to start out with based off of a mix of my personal Cream of the Crop, Beginner accessibility, and most people I can recommend it to. Keep in Mind I haven't seen everything. even more so than super Sentai, some rider series I plan to watch include Stronger, More of Amazon, more of Super-1, Kuuga, Ryuki, Blade, and Kiva, and I'm watching OOO and Black RX as I'm Writing this... Without further Fanfare, Here we go, Count Zero, Kamen Rider Agito...

Goodbye Drive, Hello Ghost...

Yeah, we'll get to the Kamen Rider stuff, but I want to quickly touch on the Juohger reveal, which can be summed up in one 6 word sentence, "So yeah, That was a thing" Be honest, the helmets look alright, but what kills the suit for me is the rest of it. The torso looks like something you can get at the Hot Topic or Rainforest Cafe. I don't want these douches to save the world for an entire year and based on the mech designs, it looks like we're getting another Comedy Sentai. Ninninger was the right idea, but not quite there. The mech looks like a freaking Lego robot, and I don't just mean those cool space sets, I mean it looks like a robot you could built with Legos you can buy in a tub from a big box store.  The folding robots worked for Shinkenger, but they look like crap here. As of now the role play weapons haven't been revealed, but if they look as ass as the mechs and suits do, I almost wish we got Space Bugs for the 2016-2017 season. I wrote a blog for how a space bugs season would go. Who knows maybe the season will rock my socks off, but so far I'm not impressed...

A. Yoshi Opinion Piece: NOT ANOTHER DOAX3 POST!!!!!!

Viewer Discretion is Advised.

Koei Tecmo announced that they're not releasing Dead Or Alive Xtreme 3 to America or PAL Regions (AKA Asia only), since then, there's been debate, Condescending Clickbait videos and articles from self important journalists who are trying to cash in to the story (DO I EVEN HAVE TO NAME NAMES!!!!!), and feminist backlash to Play Asia. I'm here to tell everyone to STFU because we lose either way!!!!!

Gaming Bits: Sony Playstation 1 (56k Warning)

The PS1. The most successful console of it's time, with 102 MILLION UNITS Sold worldwide, Not a failure by any means. It's not my favorite console of the era, but it is the most interesting, with a history going as far as the 1980s, a full decade before the console was released. It popularized CDs as a legit form of storage for games. It started with a deal gone bad with Nintendo, and evolved to one of the biggest names in gaming. This is the story of the Sony Playstation...
