Raya and the Last Dragon Looks a Little Basic

The next big animated Disney movie will be Raya and the Last Dragon, with the first trailer dropping yesterday. It looks pretty basic.

Doesn’t seem like much. Based on that trailer, it looks like there’s a character named Raya, and she’s going to search for the Last Dragon. That’s just the title. Throw in an adorable animal sidekick and you’ve got nothing else. But hey, new movies are always fun.

Raya and the Last Dragon comes out in March 2021…maybe.

6 Beans I Want to See in Fall Guys

Fall Guys: Ultimate Showdown recently came out with Season 2 and it’s fine. Enjoyable. I still like playing Fall Guys, especially since I haven’t tried Among Us yet. Along with Season 2, Fall Guys also revealed their most famous cross promotion bean skin: Sonic the Hedgehog!

Having to go fast is an expectation

Obviously this is everything Fall Guys should be doing. Make deals, cross promote, feature a ton of costume characters from other games. It’s fun playing as ducks and wolves, sure, but we all want easily merchandisable, very recognizable pop culture characters. Sonic is the latest addition, and we’ve also had characters from Team Fortress 2 and Portal. But I want more!

I want to spend my crowns on these six bean costumes!

Honestly, the Avengers Video Game Wasn’t For Me

It was recently announced that the next big update for the Avengers video game — the one bringing Kate Bishop to the game, the first new character — has been pushed off indefinitely. The developers think their game will have the legs to survive…but will it really? Honestly?

The Avengers video game was, ultimately, not for me. The game turned out to be exactly what I thought it was going to be, and it just didn’t work for me. I played a friend’s copy through the campaign, and that was fun enough. And I could probably see myself losing myself to the grind just to get fancier costumes. But nah. I set my controller down and uninstalled the game from my PC. And with Kate Bishop pushed off, there’s no reason going back anytime soon.

The Fandom Games guys are right on the dang money!

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reivews – 10/17/20

Comics! They’re still coming out! The world keeps spinning! And my fingers are still working. So let’s read some comics and write some reviews! Like some of my DC favorites and then a whole bunch of new X of Swords issues.

Comic Book of the Week goes to New Mutants #13, of all things. Despite my general exhaustion with X of Swords, I liked the character focus of this issue.

Cypher’s time to shine!

Meanwhile, I finished off the second season of The Boys and I loved it! Great show, fun adaptation; I’m definitely enjoying The Boys and don’t mind the changes from comic to show. It’s a fun adventure.

Comic Reviews: The Green Lantern: Season Two #8, Strange Adventures #6, Hellions #5, New Mutants #13 and Cable #5.

DC Comics is Gonna Do a Cool Flash Forward Event Next Year!

Once upon a time, there existed a plan at DC Comics to make a big shift in their comic book status quo. It was going to be called 5G and it was going to jump the universe forward about five years, so that the younger heroes would step up and be the new lead heroes, while the main guys would step back. Or maybe none of this was going to happen and Bleeding Cool was just pulling rumors out of its butt. Hard to say.

Well DC has announced that they’re going to do a small future event in January and February in which all DC comics will jump forward about 5 years to show off some ne looks, new status quos, new heroes and new adventures. It’s gonna be called Future State.

Look at all the everybody!

And I think it looks cool! I’m all in favor of fun little stunts like this, like the Age of Apocalypse for the X-Men back in the 90s. Marvel got so much mileage out of that story.

So yeah, all our families heroes are going to get new status quos and new adventures. Superman is going to be exiled from Earth, so he’s gonna fight space bad guys. Bruce Wayne is…believed dead? I think? And there are a couple of new Batmen. Gotham City is going to be under a police state.

Tim Drake is going to be Robin in his own little adventure Robin Eternal.

No cape? Interesting choice!

There are a lot of little comics here and there. Justice League, Teen Titans, Harley Quinn, Suicide Squad; there appears to be something for everyone! Batgirls, Grifters.

Here are a ton more details at this link. Tons of comics, tons of covers, tons of story details. Click away and enjoy the madness that is to come!

I’m just pleased that Tim Drake is Robin in the future still!

The event is only going to last for January and February and then go back to regular comics for March. Sounds fine to me!
