Game Hype: FF7 Remake News, Resident Evil 3, The Devils and the Details & Kingdom Two Crowns

Final Fantasy 7 Remake pre-load starting today. Why, because PSN's download time has gone way slower. PlayStation did it itself, so people don't overburden the network with everyone being home right now.The game comes out April 10th and if you pre-order you get some DLC like a dynamic theme.

Here's the problem though.

It's probably gonna be only part 1, but Square Enix has been extra shady on how far you get in the storywhen the others will come out. Some even suggesting only on the next console. If Square just was more open about everything it wouldn't be a problem. You know exactly what you're getting. The demo does look fun though.

-Resident Evil 3, for some reason not with a Remake attached to the title is out today.

-The Devils and the Details, the first game announced for Jackbox Party Pack 7 has you working on being a good family member. Until you're not. Hey, you are a devil.

-Kingdom Two Crowns
April 28
Pre-order for $9.99 on the 
App Store and pre-register via Google Play

We have a new Kingdom game on the way. We've played both the classic and New Lands version via steam. It's quite the easy to pick up and play time waster. Very simple instructions to build a kindom and then defend it from invaders. This time it's changed up a bit.

"Choose a solo experience, or reign together with a friend in local drop-in/drop-out co-op multiplayer. In the mobile edition of Kingdom Two Crowns, you can rule the land sitting next to your fellow monarch in classic split-screen, or across from them on opposite sides of your device in the custom mobile tabletop co-op feature."

Movie Hype: Possessor, Lupin III: The First & Why Don't You Just Die!

-NEON the people who brought us Parasite, got the rights to Cronenberg Jr, Brandon Cronenberg's, Possessor. We've written about it before as it's been in the festival scene. It's a messed up sci-fi thriller about a hitwoman that go into other people's brain's via some form of telempathy or brain-implant technology to assassinate  others. Then leaves the poor shumck's mind.  Except this time, things go bad and the or hitwoman's mind mixes with one of her shumck's. Hopefully, that means in theaters of home video real soon.

-GKids got the rights to Lupin III: The First, the brand new CGI take on Lupin the Third. We haven't looked into it beyond it's amazing trailer which sold us on seeing it whenever it comes stateside. Fans of Lupin are wondering if GKids will hopefully keep the same vocie cast that's been dubbing the cartoon for years now. Let's hope when everything blows over we can see it in theaters and then on VOD. Is the the tile a silly Japanese Engrish title, oh yeah.


We've been waiting for the ultra violence in Why Don't You Just Die! for about a year now. This one will be able to stream online starting April 20th.

Synopsis:Matvey (Aleksandr Kuznetsov) has just one objective: to gain entry to his girlfriend's parents' apartment and kill her father Andrey (Vitaliy Khaev) with a hammer to restore her honour. But all is not as it initially seems, and Matvey's attempts to bludgeon the family patriarch to death don't quite go to plan as Andrey proves a more formidable - not to mention ruthless - opponent than he anticipated... and Matvey, for his part, proves stubbornly unwilling to die.

Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories Review

Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories
PS4 & Switch
$59.99

This is a strange one that you might want to play alongside the much more boring pandemic we're having indoors. Why not enjoy a disaster outside with the oddly titled Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories that starts at Christmas...for some reason; odd choice. This franchise has been here for a while, the first game being on the PS2. The latest game is an odd mix of survival and listening to people and their problems. You can choose to be a man or a woman, why you're out and about during the diasaster and if you're helpful or a jerk. There's a lot of prompts in this game.

My favorite part at the very start was having multiple prompts on how to react about an earthquake happening. I decided to nervously hum. Which, was funny to see my character do.

A problem arose while playing. After meeting a few interesting people, amd one very sad man in a "park". I didn't know where to go or what to do next. I had some missions like finding some lost high school girls or what not, but I had no idea on how to find them. I'm guessing the game thinks you've played other games in the series before. Because, after a while, I didn't know what I was suppose to do. Apparently, you just talk to more and more people. And then escape from earthquakes and then go rafting.

It's fun to talk to those people, like your in a poorly written Japanese TV show drama. And you can give some pretty rude and idiotic answers to see how things come out. The shaking was a bit unrealistic and silly. Buildings collapsed in front of me and the mood was...meh.

I'm not sure about the price tag, it's a full price game and maybe it should have went for being a bit more of a bargain.

If you want to navigate a real disaster and be an utter jerk to those around you. Meet every stereotypical character seen in the background of a Japanese movie. Why not play this quirky survival sim of a earthquake distraught Japan?

Game provided by publisher for review purposes, played on PS4.

Hype: What We Found On The Net Today


Our favorite April Fool's Day parnk on the internet is probably this one, so close to home. Who doesn't want to go to LICKMA, a joint operation from LACMA and The Museum of Ice Cream.

 -The Scoop on LICKMA, a New LACMA and Museum of Ice Cream Collaboration





If you can somehow get it from Walmart, as it's an exclusive there, try the new Mountain Dew Frost Bite. It should have come out in the Summer, but who doesn't want a shark on the label of a drink? It's suppose to have "cool melon" flavor. Whatever that means.












The NerdMelt's legacy game of a theater The Dynasty Typewriter has become an online store called Souvenir Emporium. We dig some of their shirts and gear in the theme of the current goings-on.













SXSW Film Festival 2020 Online sounds like a cool idea. We just don't know the films that'll be
doing it. Amazon Prime is gonna showcase films that didn't get to play at the festival this year for free on their service for ten days some time in the future. That's about all the info as there aren't any other details while writing this. Let's hope for some good movies to get us through this.


All Upcoming Animated Series We Care About: Part 2

Let's finish this. But first, that age old wisdom of turning more profit by merchandising. That means turning a video game into a cartoon. And the reaping the rewards on toys and t-shirts. Oh, look it's...

The Cuphead Show
Unknown air date
Netflix

Based on the video game shooter that itself is based on classic 1930's cartoons comes an animated series on an anthropomorphic cup and Mugman. The original creators are on as producers, and we think some of the folks who worked on the recent Mickey Mouse cartoons for Disney got jobs on it. It looks like Netflix Animation is still hiring a bit of people online, so, who knows when the show is actually coming out. There isn't any footage for it so far, not even a pencil test.

*Some funny facts. If you get hired on the show you usually post a contract of selling your soul to The Devil on social media via what happens in the game. And you create a cupsona, a cup version of yourself to share with the rest of the staff.






Adventure Time: Distant Lands
Two episodes in 2020
HBO MAX

Apparently, Adventure Time can never die. This four part, one-our each episode, mini-series takes place after all ten seasons of AT. Each episode revolves around different characters and looks like the boys (Finn & Jake) aren't in it until the last one. We get Beemo, the girls (Marcy and PB) in their own contained episodes.

We're mixed on this, because a lot of the original staff moved on and their names aren't attached to it. Other than returning showrunner Adam Muto, the names we found online don't ring many bells.

We'll give it a shot, but it doesn't look like Pen Ward wasn't even involved. He was doing other stuff it seems.


The Midnight Gospel
April 20
Netflix

Pen Ward, creator of Adventure Time helped co-create this bizarre looking show that takes it's audio from comedian Duncan Trussell's podcast. It's about a wizard that they call a spacecaster who visit dying worlds and interviews people/things on them.

It looks really dumb and lacking a plot, but we'll roll the dice and give it a shot with Pen involved. But let's just say are hopes aren't that high.

City of Ghosts
Unknown air date
Netflix

This comes from AT alum Elizabeth Ito. It's a kid show about children learning about their city by talking to ghosts. Apparently, it was also explore Ito's childhood about being a Japanese kid growing up in LA. Really, that's all the details.

We'll have to wait for a trailer, but we're on board to see what might be another charming kids cartoon.










Kid Cosmic
Unknown air date
Netflix

There's pretty much nada on this one other than Craig McCracken, creator of The Powerpuff Girls is behind it. And we give him a lot of leeway. All we know is that it's about a boy with an an imagination who gets superpowers after somehow getting his hands on five cosmic rings. That's it.

There's a lot of other stuff that we didn't mention coming out to streaming. A lot of DC super hero shows are coming to HBO MAX, but WB Animation has done nothing recently to have us care or watch anything they make involving those heroes.

Let's see what these new cartoons can do and hope they keep us happy.

LAMA's New Look

Update: April Fools! This was just a joke LACMA & MOCA did not come together to form LAMA. And if you look at the photo above, we don't think that let Dunkin Donuts be a sponsor.

As we all know LAMA, formerly LACMA & MOCA, have started construction on their new main museum on Wilshire. Above you can see a rendering of the just unveiled easy to access three-story stairs on a side of the building.

But don't forget that LAMA has taken over a big chunk of former MOCA real estate on Grand and taken over the former Colburn School as it went bankrupt. When things are better you should pay a visit to the transformed former music school. Oh jeez, we hope they catch that Dean who was embezzling all that money. Remember she's still at large and was last seen in Micronesia, KTLA reported.

I can't wait to get one of those LAMA Llama plushies. Remember there's gonna be different types based on different artists. What will the Andy Warhol or Picasso Llama's look like?

more info on LAMA when it's different facilities open up

The Other Lamb
Friday, Apr 3
Online of course
$

Synopsis:
For her entire life, the cult she was born into has been all that teenage Selah (Raffey Cassidy) has known. Along with a band of similarly cloistered young women she lives seemingly unstuck in time, cut off from modern society in a remote forest commune presided over by a man called Shepherd (Michiel Huisman), a controlling, messiah-like figure with a frightening dark side. But when her insular world is rocked by a series of nightmarish visions and disturbing revelations, Selah begins to question everything about her existence—including her allegiance to the increasingly dangerous Shepherd. Awash in images of primal, dreamlike dread, this provocative fable is a haunting vision of adolescent awakening and revolt.

Alamo Drafthouse Streaming Too

Alamo Drafthouse has thrown it's hat into the ring as well, when its come to streaming. They're showing special screenings and content under the banner of Alamo-At-Home Virtual Cinema Experience! Experience! Experience!

Starting today, Tuesday, you can watch their well known Terror Tuesday and next week they"ll have Weird Wednesday. Sadly, it will alternate between Terror Tuesday and Weird Wednesday each week. So, no two in the same week. You pay to watch the film, like if you were renting to stream it. But they deliver extra Drafthouse content like their well-known pre-show, intro and then more info on what you watched on their website Birth.Movies.Death.

Right now, there doesn't seem to be a dedicated site to search through for all this stuff, just links to follow through Drafthouse's social media. It's kind of annoying to find the content.

Here's a list of bigger theatrical releases from the Birth.Movies.Death website. As of writing this, links weren't working  on 3/31.

However, this link is working
Terror Tuesday: CENTIPEDE HORROR
So, you can watch a super weird horror film with all that extra Drafthouse content for $7.25.

Next week we get the 4K restoration of Godmonster of Indian Flats on Wednesday.

LA Links: Convention Center Used, Bye-Bye Nate'n Al's


-LA Convention Center Transforms Into a Federal Field Hospital

Well, at least it's being used.


-LA Jewish Deli Icon Nate’n Al’s Closes its Doors in Beverly Hills Tomorrow

It may come back in a new location at a later time.

All Upcoming Animated Series We Care About: Part 1

My good friends, there might be one thing to get us through these trying times. Cartoons! Here's a list of animated series coming out on a plethora of platforms, be they streaming or terrestrial TV. It looks like all for streaming. There's quite a lot of cartoon goodness coming our way from many of our animator friends who worked on some of our favorites from Cartoon Network.

And then you have Nickelodeon, ehhh. Which, doesn't have anything on this list.
-Nickelodeon once ruled kids TV. Can it make a comeback? 
 

Close Enough
May  
HBO MAX

-From the creator of Regular Show, J. G. Quintel, comes his crazy adult focused sitcom. From the trailer it seems to be about a young couple becoming parents with wacky cool friends. One of them seems to just be a friendlier version of How Did This Gets Made?'s Jason Mantzoukas and is voiced by Jason himself.

If a fan of Regular Show (and we are) it looks like a no-brainer to fall in-love with this new show. Also, doesn't hurt that it's set in LA.

A bit of looking back and you see this cartoon was suppose to come out on TBS years ago. But, big shake-ups in the ownership of TBS and the show to be part of an animation block with a Louis C.K. made cartoon ended that from happening. Because of this, more than likely we're only getting the 13 episodes that were made and not getting anymore unless there's a huge amount of fan love for it.

Solar Opposites
May 8 
Hulu 

From Justin Roiland, the screaming drunk who we think won't probably live throughout the entire run of Rick & Morty (alcohol/car accident) comes a show about some aliens pretending to be humans living on Earth. Their home planet seems to be destroyed and now they're just trying to fit in.

We'll give anything from Roiland a shot, but it's missing the component of Dan Harmon, the other half behind Rick and Morty. Another ding is the trailer we've posted with this, it has that awful use of classic music as either now music from the series was available or just lazy pr. Serenade No. 13 from Mozart  It means  usually whatever the movie is, is rushed out our an inferior product.




Looney Tunes Cartoons
May
HBO MAX

Ehhhhh, What's up Doc?

Bugs Bunny and the rest of the Looney Tunes, hopefully minus Lola Bunny, our back in the newest iteration after many, many failed attempts to bring them back to their former glory.

We have Uncle Grandpa's Peter Browngardt in charge of it and we have to say the animation so far has been on par from the stuff from the 1930's.

We just ain't sure about if it's still as funny. Animation down, check. Same humor. We, dunno.

10 shorts aired at a film festival to date with the audience giving it a thumbs up, but other than that and the trailer above we don't know much about these new toons. 

Animaniacs
2020
Hulu


With updates on social media and the trades we know an Animaniacs reboot was suppose to come out this year on Hulu. From relatively unknown Wellesley Wild who worked on Family Guy; it's not the name we would think of associating with it. The original voice cast is coming back, but other than that there's not even a trailer.

The best concern so far online is if the well-endowed Hello Nurse will be allowed to say in the show or be written out like the very ample sized Ms. Bellum for Powerpuff Girls was taken out for it's reboot. If so, we'll miss the cleavage.



 
Jellystone
Unknown air date
HBO MAX
 
C.H. Greenblatt was given the keys to take over Hanna-Barbera's classic anthropomorphic animals. Greenblatt gave us the likes of Chowder on Cartoon Network after working on The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. He knows his stuff and seems like the perfect choice for wacky adventures with these iconic rip-offs of dead celebrities reborn and remembered as talking animals.

Inside Job
Unknown air date 
Netflix

This cartoon is set in a shadow government office and isgonna be a work-place comedy. It comes from a writer who worked on both Gravity Falls and Regular Show, Shion Takeuchi. It looks like it'll have a female lead having to deal with all the different conspiracies that are believed to exist.

Otaku Culture: Learn About Japanese Culture From Some Guy Named Galbraith



Patrick W. Galbraith that is.

He is one of our favorite writers on Japanese culture or essentially the nerdy fan aspects of it. We've interviewed him before and like his studious nature. He analyzes anime at a college level and his newest book Otaku and the Struggle for Imagination in Japan can be downloaded or picked up on Amazon right now.

We thought we'd remind everyone about his work as many of us our stuck indoors. And when things settle down you might want to visit Japan or at least dream of it, like so many people born in the 80's, 90's and early 2000's.

In his latest look at the inner workings of the ever elusive Otaku we get a breakdown of how we think of them and we might want to remember that they're still people, not just nerd memes. But, yes, a lot of the things they do or go nerd out over can be very strange. And, at first I thought about titling this Otaku Culture: Learn About Japanese Culture Before It Goes Extinct Due To Low Fertility Rates. Because we don't think of them getting any.

Patrick isn't like us, he gives thoughtful information explaining what it means to be an Otaku and more in depth information on what we might consider weird Otaku culture. Y'know the stuff we read and watch on the Internet about super fandom.

But, it doesn't stop there. He has; probably my favorite of his work and can't wait for an updated, The Otaku Encyclopedia, explaining every word uttered on the Internet in a charming, on all the phrases you wondered about from anime or 4chan in a bit-sized book.

Then you have The Moe Manifesto, trying to capture the love of anime girls and a look inside Otaku's homes in Otaku Spaces. A wide selection on all the things that our Anime Expo loving friends in the East buy, watch and play. And know you can read about the addiction to to those things they have, because you kind of have them too.



Media Hype: Duck Tales Back Apr 4, Enter The Florpus, Pure Trance & Wired

The rebooted Duck Tales comes back next week with brand new episodes.


 If you haven't seen Invader Zim: Enter The Florpus, we highly recommend it. We just watched it again for a fourth time and it still holds up at making us laugh. Only on Netflix.

*As a fan of animation and Nickelodeon for ages, it's fascinating to see Nick giving up on showcasing work on its on cable channel and instead making content for Netflix or at least giving it up to run for a number of years on Netflix. Another cartoon called Glitch Techs is another instance of Nick just giving a series to Netflix first with no timeline if it'll ever air on Nick. Nick seems to be stepping as fast as possible into being a content provider and not a channel.


Pure Trance
$22.49

If you've never dealt with the ultra cute, but at the same time violent & sexy work of Junk Mizuno, where have you been? We mean, Nuclues Gallery usually teams up with her once a year. We're telling you to get a copy of her manga Pure Trance, which is all kinds of messed up in a good way.

Synopsis: Following the Third World War, humankind left the toxic surface of the Earth and built an underground city to survive.

A serious social problem emerged in this new society: hyperorexia, or severe overeating, a side effect of the Pure Trance life-sustaining pill.

Our story begins in a hospital that has been ruined by a tyrannical director, Keiko Yamazaki...


Wired Magazine
As we write this it's $5 for both print and digital for a year, 12 issues
which is usually $10
So, not a bad deal in any case

When is there a better time to read about the newest improvements in the fields of science and technology? We mean you have free time right now. Wired has been our go to magazine for years. Showcasing dreamed up tech that might never come out to stories about the strangest places science can take you. Be that in your home, into crystal caves below the earth or outer space.

Why Weren't Penises Cut Off, Larry? The Season Finale of Curb Your Enthusiam, Eh


What should have ended this season of Curb Your Enthusiasm was an unwanted bris. I mean Johnsons being jacked. Wieners getting wacked. C%3*s being cut-off! Instead we tread in with some mediocre flops.

Since, we first saw the Pee Cube, invented by Larry; a new take on the urinal, earlier this season. We thought, "Oy, that's gonna sting!" They're shouldn't be a shutting door anywhere near one's penis. Especially, sliding.

Now with the season finale episode set-up with the big Johnson club, and much talk of man bits knocking over stuff, we thought,"Oh, here's some surprise castration." Instead, we get, meh.

What a waste of Paul Scheer and another bald shaft.

Parks, You Can No Longer Go & LADWP Not Being Monsters For Once

https://www.instagram.com/robinofmojave/
Looks like too many people went outside this weekend and didn't practice social distancing so the Mayor closed all city parks and beaches, (sarcastic) great. Governor Newsom made a similar decision over the weekend, but, for some reason, still allows hiking around state parks, but that might change. You should check on the park's social media before going, because at this point it might be closed.


Some good news, if it's hard to pay water and power right now.

Game Hype: Disaster Report 4: Summer Memories Demo

From George Townley: 




So due to the current situation, my show won’t be happening in the physical space on Melrose Avenue. The good news is that the exhibition will be continuing online so you can enjoy all the new work from the comfort of your own home, all twelve limited edition prints will be debuting at 12PM PDT, 3rd April on https://nineteeneightyeight.com/


This is a huge shame as I’ve been working on this show for about a year now and to not be able to see them in Los Angeles is pretty disappointing, but it’s out of my control and I’m extremely grateful that I’m able to continue this online. I’m planning to come out to LA later this year when this has all (hopefully) died down a little bit, so see you then!

 *He's work is kind of eerily timely as each piece is devoid of people.
