I’M BACK, BABY!

Whelp, I’m back humans. After thousands of years lost in the abyssal space-time wormhole and meeting thousands of different life-forms, I decided to come back. To be honest, I came back because Pikes baked me her famous chocolate chip cookies, and God could not ask for a better baked good than that woman’s cookies.

As for who I am, well…. The name’s Charlie. Charlie flippin’ Crowhills! And I’m here to stay. Just gotta put that out there, as I have nothing better to do with my time now as I am back from my crazy journey in space-time wormholes. 

PEACE.

DC & Warner Bros. Dun Goofed

Hello, future friends and enemies. School’s just finished its first week for me, but that’s not what I’m wanting to talk about. AS MANY OF YOU KNOW, people’s opinions on “Man of Steel” were torn, but a majority of them (from at least what I heard) was that it sucked. But the blockbuster was big enough to get its own sequel with Batman to appear. You’re probably thinking, “How’s that possible when Christian Bale said he’d stop being Batman?” Easy, they get a new actor. But who did they choose?

FREAKING BEN AFFLECK

ARE. YOU. SERIOUS. I understand that this might be the Warners’ fault, but REALLY?! I might be sounding like a nerd on a blind rage, but…but…GAH! *flips table*

This actually reminds me of an argument that Mizore & I got into a while back. She said that Marvel was basically kicking DC’s ass because their stories take place in our world, not in made-up places like Gotham or Metropolis. (If those are real, then HA!) Now, this brings up a good point: DC really ruled back in the days of the 90s & 2000s. It’s not just nostalgia talking; let’s make a comparison.

Batman: The Animated Series was very dark with which we could feel sympathetic with our villains and their struggles; kind of like how the X-Men feel. Justice League was basically the best thing ever since Miyazaki decided to have his films released in the states (and told us WHEN they would release. >_> ) because you got to know superheroes you might’ve not known outside of the main 3 (GREEN LANTERN REPRESENTATION, BABEH!)

Now, I’m not going to compare these with “Beware the Batman” because that’s still new (and I hope they pick up their slack because the only character I’m invested in is Commissioner Gordan), but let’s look at the “recent’ DC animation projects that’ve aired on TV outside of geek channels

Green Lantern: The Animated Series took a different approach with 3D animation, which made many repeal it at first. It’s not as dark as the 90s Batman, but it still had a complex villain in the end. (Yes, a villain). Plus, there were times where the 3D animation worked; can’t really name some on the top of my head, but they still had really cool moments. Young Justice started off right, but basically died for me when the 2nd season started. Alien struggles, REALLEH!? We wanted to see the sidekicks take actual action and how they became heroes in the first place! (They did an all right job with Static Shock, but there were no signs of Teen Titans…)

AHH YES, speaking of Teen Titans, the new animated series is…meh for me. On one hand, there are jokes that are really funny if you’re a DC nerd like I am, but then you get those really quirky moments where I think, “WHY AM I WATCHING THIIIIIIIS”. I’d suggest this to people who want to get involved with Teen Titans if it weren’t for the fact that there were references from the original and that version’s a hell of a lot better! DX

…Well, those tangents had a mind of their own…o_o SORRY ABOUT THAT~! Anywho, if DC made a movie about how the heroes were sent to an alternate dimension (AKA our dimension), then maybe there might be some slight hope of it succeeding once again. MIGHT. (Also, stop focusing so much on Batman! WE GET THAT HE’S AWESOME; WE JUST NEED OUR OTHER HEROES TO HELP BALANCE THE AWESOMENESS OUT!)

P.S. On an unrelated note, the Nostalgia Critic’s going to review “The Last Airbender” movie on the 3rd of September; 10 days before season 2 of Legend of Korra comes out and 1 day after the premiere of Uncle Grandpa. (Shut up, I’m excited for that series). OH BOOOOOOOOOOY~!

P.S.S. Lots of Pokemon X & Y news; mainly concerning how Pokemon are now becoming even more like Digimo-I MEAN, MEGA EVOLUTIONS! YEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! I hope the useless Pokemon get one so that they actually have use…

Attack on Titan Conspiracies

Hello, future friends and enemies. MEH, LAZINESS STRIKES ONCE MORE! …Anywho, DJ’s here
DJ: HALLO~!
Pikes: …And we’ve been interested in one particular new anime as of late…
Random Person: Free! ?
*both Pikes & DJ laugh hysterically*
Both: No
Pikes: Nope, it’s Attack on Titan
DJ: IT’S JUST SO BEAUTIFUL THAT EACH EPISODE MAKES ME INTERNALLY CRY UNTIL I GO TO BED IN WHICH I THEN CRY MYSELF TO SLEEP
Pikes: …As you can see, it’s quite good. SO, being the loyal fans we are, we’ve decided to come up with a few conspiracy theories that’s sure to make you even more hyped for the show! ENJOY!

WARNING! THIS IS WHAT WE’VE GATHERED FROM EPISODES 1-15! SPOILERS ARE BOUND TO BE IN THIS!

1. Titans are actually real people that’ve died by getting eaten or getting mixed with Titan DNA
DJ: TITANS ARE PEOPLE?!
Pikes: Well, they do look like humans with rape faces. Plus, in episode 15, Hanji Zoe told Sawney and Bean (2 Titans the Recon Corps captured) about a tribe of cannibals. Who knows? The cannibals could’ve evolved into giants

2. Erwin’s a bad guy
EVIL
Pikes: Look at that face. (Especially the eyebrows) PURE EVIL, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
DJ: Sawney & Bean were killed by 2 people of the Recon Corps and earlier in the episode, Erwin talked to a fellow soldier named Mike about planning something…
Pikes: Not to mention he gave that slight talk to Eren when Hanji was crying over her poor captives about who the real monster is. He might be trying to spark a civil war & go against Eren…

3. Mikasa might turn into a Titan
DJ: Again, Titan genetics might affect her in the future
Pikes: I remember seeing spoilers in Youtube comments about other soldiers turning into Titans as well, so maybe. o_o

4. There might be more humans outside of the Walls
Pikes: As you can tell, many of the folks in the Walls are either German or Russian with Mikasa being the only Japanese, so…
DJ: IT TAKES PLACE IN ICELAND!
Pikes: …Yes, DJ. It takes place in Iceland…
*facedesk*
DJ: Yeah, but in all seriousness, maybe they travel outside of the actual walls across the oceans to find more human settlements

5. What’s in the basement?
DJ: A journal explaining how Eren’s father got Titan DNA and a map to the outside world!
Pikes: A joke like a feather because Eren’s dad’s an asshole!
DJ: THE DEAD BODY OF EREN’S FATHER
Pikes: Or a transportation device because it’s really aliens! OR GOD MAKES THE TITANS DESCEND FROM THE HEAVENS SINCE IT WAS IN THE FIRST INTRO. OAO

6. Levi’s too fabulous to be straight
DJ: …Really, Pikes?
Pikes: WHAT? He’s too much of a neat freak to be considered male! Not to mention that he makes a fabulous pose when kicking Eren’s face
FABOOLOUS
Pikes: The new Disney princess, everyone!

The Console War’s Pretty Much Over By Now

Hello, future friends and enemies. *looks at date from last post* o_o; Oh geez…(Apparently, I might’ve been wrong about one of the B-day parts). ANYWHO, sorry I didn’t get the chance to post earlier; I’m still getting over the fact that I passed Geometry with a C and therefore, don’t have to retake it over the summer. -u- (That or I’m just plain lazy) So, what happened while I was gone? Well, I guess school and my 17 birthday, to be specific. o3o Gosh, I need to post here more often…

ANYWAY, with E3 pretty much out of the way now, there’s some news you might already know, but I’m going to tell you them anyways:

-Microsoft basically killed itself as a gaming company by releasing the XBox One (or as many call it, XBox Done), a console that doesn’t go backwards with games (meaning you can’t play 360 games on their), can’t play used games, and is basically a vocal remote instead of an actual gaming system
-Although I’m not sure if Sony removed the social network features to their PlayStation4, their conference announced the arrivals of the long-awaited Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy 15. (Let’s just say many of my friends were pretty much crying tears of joy once they found out)
-In my opinion, Nintendo won, but that’s just me. o.o ANYWHO, they’re going to release a new Smash Bros. with MegaMan, the Villager from Animal Crossing (hopefully, you can choose to be female), and the Wii Fit coach as new characters! FINALLY! (Hopefully, the hacks for this game will be as awesome as Brawl’s; it always amused me how so many people made different versions of Cloud and Sephiroth) They also have news about Pokemon X & Y (including 5 new Pokemon and a new way to battle with hoardes of 5 Pokemon attacking one of yours at the same time along with Sky Battles, but that has yet to make an impression), Bayonetta 2, and other games waiting to be released/finished. -u-

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand, well, I’d say that’s pretty much it now. Microsoft, you were good with the 360, but you really screwed yourselves over now

P.S. In somewhat unrelated news, I’m going to do a solo-run of Platinum and I want to know which non-legendary/non-uber Pokemon I should use. Mizore suggests Swablu or Houndour, and I’m highly considering those, but I’m also thinking of either Budew or Bulbasaur. o3o HALP~!

P.S.S. WATCH ATTACK ON TITAN! IT IS FREAKING AMAZING AND DARE I SAY IT, BETTER THAN LAST YEAR’S POPULAR ANIME! *glares at Sword Art Online*

5 YEARS

Hello, future friends and enemies. According to our handy-dandy WordPress notifications, this blog is now 5 years old! NEAT! What’s your fondest memory of this site? Unfortunately, all I can remember is my dreaded weaboo phase. >_<;

…If you need me, I’ll be watching Peter Pan on TV and then trying to recruit Priam from my Fire Emblem game. (It’s his voice actor’s birthday today, you know! [Same goes with Spike Spiegel's])

Welp

Hello, future friends and enemies. Forgive me for not for a while; school and the new Fire Emblem game preoccupied me. (IT’S EXTREMELY AMAZING AND YOU SHOULD BUY IT IF YOU HAVEN’T ALREADY AND HAVE A 3DS!) Anywho, another set of Pokemon X & Y news was revealed today and WE GOT…

Welp

…a strange looking form of Mewtwo! Well, looking at it at first, I was basically like most Genwunners in saying, “OH MY GOD, WHAT HAVE THEY DONE TO MEWTWO!?” But I’m slowly warming up to it. (Emphasis on slowly) What’re your thoughts?
