I'd really recommend giving young justice another shot. I think it does a really good job of consolidating and condensing the DC universe without leaving out anything important. It basically out-new 52'd the new 52.
Have you watched any Young Justice? I just finished the first season on Netflix and it was better than I thought it would be. The plots are sometimes a little too angsty and/or contrived, but it gets better as it goes on. No idea how the second season is, though, since Cartoon Network apparently doesn't like releasing a show's entire run on Netflix at once.
I didn’t catch much of it, because what little I saw really threw me for a loop with the voice acting. I know that’s the wrong response, but hearing their version of The Joker was a turnoff for me. Maybe I should give it another shot.
What is your favorite Metal Gear Solid boss fight?
I’m probably most nostalgic for the fight against Sniper Wolf, but the boss fights in MGS 3 are sort of objectively the best. I love the fight with The End, because it’s so weird and requires so much patience.
No question, just wanted to say that I really appreciate all the hard work you do. Thanks for WRA and Movie Fighters, and for the great news articles and Arrow reviews on CA. And for your books, which I can always flip through when I'm stressed. Copernicus Jones is also the only book I'm subscribed to on Comixology, and even though I've read most of what has been put already when it was a webcomic, I'm still excited to read it again with the new art.
Thanks so much!
It’s really nice to know someone’s appreciating my stuff.
We’ve been doing Movie Fighters for almost a year now, and it’s been a great time.
However, we’ve heard quite a few complaints/fielded quite a few questions about the delivery system we currently have through Bandcamp. It’s…not the best system for distributing podcast. It can be a bit of a headache.
So we’ve started this Kickstarter to fund a year’s worth of Movie Fighters. If we’re successful, we’ll start posting every episode on iTunes, Stitcher and though an RSS feed.
IF you have already bought all our episodes on Bandcamp, don’t worry. Those episodes will stay there forever and won’t be on iTunes. If you haven’t listened to those yet, you can get them all as a donation reward!
We’ve got some other cool rewards, too, including invitations to a live episode! So check it out!
The new TV show "Gotham" sounds really boring to me. I remember Sims talking about how a world based on Batman without Batman in it has many problems. What's your preliminary opinion?
I think it’ll probably be a average-to-good police procedural with a few more colorful characters than normal. It will snag a whole bunch of viewers because of its connection to Batman, but I think that’ll be its downfall, at least among superfans, because they’ll just be wondering why it isn’t a Batman show.
People are hoping it’ll be a lot like Gotham Central, but I doubt it will be. That book was really invested in being in the DCU. I imagine this will be more like Blue Bloods with a coat of comics paint on it.
The idea of supervillains (of a sort; I’m sure they’ll be toned down considerably) being all over Gotham when Bruce Wayne is a kid is a huge problem in terms of the story building up to Batman (another problem I’m sure Chris has), but I doubt many people will care about that.
This week, we’re returning to our Fighting Game Movies series one last time to watch the truly ridiculous sequel, Mortal Kombat Annihilation!
Hear Chris and Matt disagree about whether the movie is beautifully trashy or just trash! Hear the things that made us laugh uncontrollably! Hear Chris be completely unable to remember the name “Sindel.”
All that and more for one buck!
The description above is not a joke: I COULD NOT REMEMBER the name of a character in this stupid, stupid movie, and we had just finished watching it.
When we did the original Mortal Kombat at ComicsAlliance, a few of our readers wondered why we didn’t do the sequel, and some even claimed that it was the better film. Those people are wrong. This movie is terrrrrible.
