And then Yori ran off, just like that! I hope it’s a good snappy thing!

I watched that very brief Castlevania show on Netflix and I enjoyed the heck out of it! Its biggest problem is that it’s way too brief, and also four episodes should’ve at least been enough to get into Dracula’s castle! But the writing is great, schlocky fun,  and the relationship between the obnoxiously snarky Trevor Belmont and hilariously aloof Alucard is ready to blossom into the bromance of the decade.

Also, I played some Splatoon 2 over the weekend. It was a chaotic mess! I’m sure I’ll still buy it when it comes out, because I enjoyed Splatoon 1, but playing this weekend demo I found myself feeling pretty down when I was on the losing side of a match, something I didn’t really feel in the first game. That’s probably because there’s no character progression yet. The best part of playing Splatoon 1 multiplayer was that your character still gained levels even if you were frequently on the losing side. I’m sure that will also be the case for the sequel, but until then, losing is just losing, and it’s no fun!

    The bamboo thicket is advancing on him threateningly, snapping their (invisible) fingers with every step.

    Also, I expected a review of Spiderman: Homecoming. Was looking forward to discussing it!

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Ugh, I’ve been frustrated with my inability to find time to make it to the theater. There’s a lot out that I want to see, and Homecoming is pretty much top of the list.

      • LordBolanderFace

        My non-spoilery review: Not bad (really good, actually), but Andrew Garfield is still the best Spiderman. Vulture is by far the best Spiderman villain thus far, and second best for the MCU behind Loki. Found it a little weird how stubborn Stark was to do absolutely nothing. Perhaps a better title would have been “Iron Man: Not My Problem.”

        • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

          Garfield might be a good Spiderman, but Amazing Spiderman 2 was such a horrendously terrible film that it totally cancels out any affection I may have had for him in the role. The original Spiderman 2 was a film that I was absolutely in love with back in the day, and I don’t think any Spiderman film before or since has come close to tapping the raw emotions I felt from that movie. Granted I haven’t watched it in a very long time.

          • LordBolanderFace

            I didn’t like Amazing Spiderman 2 either, but I still maintain that Amazing Spiderman 1 was the best Spiderman movie ever. I used to love the Toby Macguire movies, but then I went for a few years without watching them and when I came back I was like, “Wow, the cheese is almost on par with Adam West’s Batman!” Maybe you like that, but I preferred the tone the reboot gave it.

          • Nos Rin aka CTCO

            I really enjoyed AS1, even the cheesy bits, thought it was great. Never liked Toby much at all. always wanted to punch that smirk off his face but Doc Oct will always be my favorite spidey movie villian (and sort of comic book too)
            I never went to see AS2 because of all the bad reviews I just didn’t bother. :S

          • clogboy

            Blame it on too many baddies, and not enough memorable dialog. Although that electric guy AKA Mr. Dubstep was pretty neat IMO.

          • Nos Rin aka CTCO

            i might watch it eventually but i have so many hobbies I dont get around to anything I want to.

          • clogboy

            Funny. My hobbies are the things I want to do.
            Don’t be like me, and feel old when a movie you didn’t see yet ends up on the family channel.

          • Nos Rin aka CTCO

            well AS2 isn’t exactly high on my interest list. it’s more on the “nothing else to do” list.

          • clogboy

            Fair enough. So is Homecoming for me but I’m still trying to catch it on the big screen.

          • Nos Rin aka CTCO

            ya, where I moved to there isn’t that big of a theatre, I’m guessing since the website is a little lack luster.
            tuesdays is 5 dollars though so that’s cool, although spiderman might not be playing on tuesdays. :S
            I missed wonderwoman. :S
            and I dont think they’re even showing transformers. (Look I know it’s probably worse then 2 but I kind of stuck myself on seeing all the crappy micheal bay 80s revives regardless of how terrible they are so… I don’t know.)

          • LordBolanderFace

            Electro was an okay villain, but it confirmed my theory that, in a world where people get powers by being bitten by superbugs, there’s still no good way to give Electro his powers.

          • Nos Rin aka CTCO

            I loved Doc Oct. Always thought he was cool as a kid with those arms and he was a really good movie villain. I can’t stand toby though, I want to punch that smirk off his face.
            Loved Doc Oct’s last line. “I WILL NOT DIE A MONSTER!!!” Yes… :)

      • Thomas

        Several who’ve seen Homecoming concur that the banter during combat comes closest to the style found in the comics.

        Although there are positive points (and it and the rest are far better than AS2), I too very much liked the original trilogy when it came out. Perhaps I’m partial because the original trilogy was first, but the original trilogy met or exceeded expectations (and fears) in ways that were quite satisfying. I personally don’t feel Homecoming topped that, though it did certainly recover from AS2.

        • LordBolanderFace

          Like I said, I prefer Amazing Spiderman 1, but I’ll concede that him getting and discovering his powers was done better in the first trilogy. The reboot felt like it was trying too hard to copy-without-copying it.

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Looks like I’ll be seeing Spydermen: Homecomers tomorrow! Very excited!

      • LordBolanderFace

        And in other news, I just managed to preorder a SNES Mini! Tis a day of miracles, I tell ye!

  • Hfar

    Yori: “I sense something, a presence I’ve not felt since…”

    • http://www.nn4b.com suburban_samurai

      Shit’s about to get real Star Wars all up in here!

      • LordBolanderFace

        Ken: *kills Genchu… somehow… don’t question it*
        Genchu: *does Jedi evaporation trick*
        Ken: “Hey, no fair! You’re supposed to bleed!”

      • KungFuKlobber

        Oh, snap!

    • Kid Chaos

      It’s probably not Tadashii, unless he’s making noise to lure Yori away from Cho. This could be…*trouble*. 💀

      • clogboy

        It might be Tadashii laying a trap, it might also be any other trouble that he could deal with without effort. I hope it’s Genchu.

  • clogboy

    Great! Let’s split up!
    Watched a few eps of Castlevania, it’s good, but Belmont’s voice acting is a bit flat tbh. He’s this weird mix of stoic and obnoxious. Maybe I’ve watched too much anime to get a good feel for other cartooney stuff.

    • clogboy

      …and that’s the season done, I get Belmont now. Monsters equal an eager Belmont. Every other time is drunk o clock.

  • Zana

    I love how he is fluent enough in Cho-ism to actually understand him at this point.

  • animalia555

    Which one is it?
