The newest expansion of World of Warcraft has been announced and ogres are not yet a playable race. I’m sure Shadowlands will be awesome, but I’m holing out for ogres.
With this new expansion, I’m about to be three expansions behind on what used to be my favorite video game. I loved World of Warcraft, and I still probably do. But it’s not a game for me anymore. I was never interested in the post-game stuff. I just want to explore the world and play a good story. But I just don’t have much interest in the overall game anymore.
I want ogres. And maybe bards.
Open the door, get on the floor! Everybody walk the dinosaur! Today we’re going to talk about one of the best topics in the world: dinosaurs! To make it even better, we’re going to talk about the best dinosaur: the Ankylosaurus! It’s been my favorite dinosaur since I was a kid and it deserves the spotlight!
Some people out there would focus on the Tyrannosaurus Rex or the Velociraptor. Both are cool, but they get too much attention. And don’t even get me started on the Triceratops or the Stegosaurus. The Ankylosaurus is cooler than them all! Built like a tank, complete with armored plating on the back, and a massive tail bludgeon, the Ankylosaurus is just plain cool! So I went out and tracked down six different Ankylosaurus-based characters in pop culture!
Join me after the jump for six times the Ankylosaurus was used as inspiration for one cool character or another!
Want to hear something weird about me? I like sentient vehicle characters. But not like the Pixar film Cars, where all the characters are sentient vehicles. I mean fictional worlds where everybody is normal, it’s just that their mode of transportation is also a character in their own right, with personality and sentience. It’s just one of those tropes that I really like.
I don’t particularly know the origin of this interest, other than some of the specific characters on this list. I liked these characters and my interest just grew. I can also still remember reading some kids books about Johnny Tractor and Corny CornPicker when I was a kid. Now those were the bee’s knees! And then across movies, comics and cartoons, I loved a lot more!
Join me after the jump for my personal indulgence in this weird but lovable fictional trope!
Plans have been in place to remake RPG classic Final Fantasy 7 for awhile now, with no signs of it actually happening. But developers released a nifty new cinematic trailer last week, so at least that’s something!
The trailer promises more information next month. We’ll see what happens! I’m all for having this remade. Maybe this time I’ll better understand the story and what’s going on…
The final season of Game of Thrones arrives on April 14, and I’m pretty sure we’re all super excited!
The first major trailer looks stellar. Who knows what’s going to happen?! I had some ideas, once upon a time, but I doubt any of them are going to come true. Still, I’ll be watching, just like everybody else in the world. Here’s hoping for greatness!
