Howdy guys, it’s Francis, the leader of SSB, and I’m writing this from my bed. Fortunately I took the day off and I’m resting. Comic Con was beyond intense. I’m going to let these pictures and videos speak for themselves.
Big ups to the Hard Rock Hotel for being super awesome to us during our stay, the Manchester Grand Hyatt, Bryan’s 24 for some awesome Chicken and Waffles, Johnnie Walker, Grey Goose, DJ Kid Wonder, and my SSB fam.
Oh, and we at SSB offer our sincerest condolences to the family of Satoru Iwata, President of Nintendo, developer and creator of videogames, and the person that brought us MOTHER/Earthbound.
The animation quality isn’t anything to write home about, though it’s nowhere near studio Pierrot levels. Otherwise, it’s a fun romp in the Dragon Ball universe, and who doesn’t love those? Goten and Trunks steal the show, like always.
To celebrate SquareEnix and Sony’s announcement of a Final Fantasy VII remake, Brian and I have started a somewhat spoiler-free playthrough of Final Fantasy VII. It’s not exactly clean, and I talk about Jessie Spano. Saved by the Bell!
Dinosaurs, Vikings, Chainguns, Ninjas, Lamborghini Countaches, Kung-Fu Renegade Cops, Nazis, Hacking….it’s like Laser Unicorns peeked into my retro psyche and pulled out what was inside. Maybe I should quit now because I can never hope to achieve the level of awesome that this movie does.
Nah, I’ll still keep shooting for it. In my own way.
It’s been a rough few weeks, and I’ve been dealing with a few issues of my own. A whole buncha stuff cropped up and it left me feeling like a shell of myself. Not knowing if what I was doing was right, constantly questioning myself, etc….
I’m still trying to work through it all. Hopefully I can work through this funk. Fortunately, I’ve got my crew still behind me, after all this time. I guess I’m doin’ something right.
Sorry for the lack of content. I promise I’ll make it up to you guys. Somehow, someway.
This week, it’s back to the fightin’ office for me. Hard training awaits. Some of my homies have been holding it down on the geek front.
My homegirl Jennice has been streaming Xenogears every Monday-Wednesday starting at 8 PM PST. Here’s her site:
