I have been weighing my desire to play the Resident Evil 2 remake since it came out a year ago. The original Resident Evil 2 was one of my first must-play video games back when I finally joined the Playstation generation. But even as the RE2 remake goes on sale, I can’t bring myself to buy it and relive the memories!
And the same is likely to happen with the just-announced Resident Evil 3 remake!
I loved Resident Evil 3 just as much as RE2 back in the day! But man…something about these games is keeping me at arm’s length. At least it looks good!
Meanwhile, in other video game news, it’s only been two weeks since my list of my most anticipated games of the year came out…and already half of them have been delayed. Cyberpunk 2077, Avengers and the Final Fantasy VII remake have all been pushed back to the fall. So perhaps I’ll have plenty of time to finally play that RE2 remake…
New comic books are here! And they’re pretty awesome this week! New issues of Go Go Power Rangers and Jane Foster: Valkyrie prove once again why I love comics! But as great as they are, there was an issue that was just a touch more special this week.
Comic Book of the Week goes to Legion of Super-Heroes #3 because it’s a fun issue, and that is surprising. It’s not the best and most interesting comic this week, but the new Legion issue does something I didn’t expect: finally warrants its own existence.
Meanwhile, new Dawn of X comics keep getting announced left and right. I’m still worried that all of these comics are just classic X-Men titles with random rosters, just like every other X-Men relaunch…but then Jonathan Hickman posted on Twitter that nobody is required to buy them all. Just buy what you like, and don’t buy what you don’t. That’s pretty solid advice.
Comic Reviews: Go Go Power Rangers #27, Iron Man 2020 #1, Legion of Super-Heroes #3, Runaways #27 and Valkyrie #7.
The last time we saw a trailer for Bloodshot, I was excited for a Valiant Cinematic Universe. Since then, I think I’ve read that those plans are cancelled and Valiant is going in a different direction. That’s a shame. It looks like Vin Diesel is out on a limb on his own…
I don’t really know how the movie looks. OK? Obviously very action-packed. And Bloodshot looks pretty cool once he’s in his proper colors. And…look, I’m going to keep my hopes up. It would be fun if Valiant had some success and get got more of these!
Bloodshot comes out on March 13!
The TV show BoJack Horseman will come to an end on Jan. 31 with the final batch of episodes. I don’t think I’m ready. BoJack Horseman is probably my favorite TV show of the past few years, and is easily in my Top 5 of all time. It’s both hilarious and emotionally dramatic. A perfect balance!
And it looks like the ending is going to keep the stakes very high.
I don’t know how this is going to end. I’ve read and heard some fan theories, and perhaps I have some of my own. But I don’t want to know what happens in advance. I don’t want any spoilers. I want to just sit back and let it wash over me and hopefully I’ll be happy and at peace with the ending.
This is a damn good show!
New this week, Marvel Comics has announced their Outlawed storyline, in which teenage superheroes will be outlawed by the federal government. Oddly, this will lead to a whole new relaunch of a bunch of teen superhero comics, like Champions, New Warriors, Power Pack and potentially more! It’s as if they didn’t even hear the new law!
I think it’s an interesting storyline idea and I wish Marvel all the best in seeing it through! And it got me thinking about my favorite teen superheroes. There have been a lot over the years, but as I looked over the lists I found online, I realized my own favorites list was pretty small. I discovered that I haven’t really been a big fan of teenage superheroes over the years. I’m a fan of a lot of young adult, early-20s, college-aged superheroes like Squirrel Girl or the Slingers. But teens? It’s a short, tight list!
Join me after the jump for my favorite teenage superheroes! And feel free to share your own favorites in the comments!
