My 6 Favorite Vehicle Characters

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.

Nightboat, the crime-solving boat!

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!

That Final Fantasy 7 Remake Might Actually Happen

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 Sure Looks Spectacular!

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!

I’m Coming to Get You Clementine!

Clementine is my favorite character in The Walking Dead. She’s the star of the TellTale, point-and-click video game adventures. And her final game is coming!

I’m one game behind on The Walking Dead series, but only because Clem wasn’t the lead character in the last one, and that killed my interest. But I’m not going to miss the end of Clem’s journey! I’ve got to get caught up and get ready to save the frickin’ day from zombies!

Oh DuckTales, You Drag Me Back In!

Not too long ago, I lamented the loss of the Expanded Disney Cartoon Universe because, instead of giving us Darkwing Duck, they turned DW into a TV show. That was hugely disappointing. In the world of modern cartoons, having a deep, rich mythology behind the episode-to-episode shenanigans is par for the course. Think Steven Universe and Adventure Time.

I was ready to write the whole expanded, connected Disney Cartoon Universe off as a gag, ready to dismiss my hopes as mere fantasy to an apparent writers room disinterested in my grand ideas.

But then they go and throw this at me out of the blue:

The Gummi Bears?! Seriously? I didn’t even think to include them in my schematics for an Expanded Disney Cartoon Universe! That’s madness!

But it means there is still hope…

The Sky Pirates episode of DuckTales is set to air on July 28, at which point we’ll know more. I will stay with this story all night if I have to!
