    WWE 2K19

    I really wish that these games had an old school style season mode where you can just choose whoever you want and play through it. No the MyPlayer stuff where you have to create a wrestler from scratch and are limited on what moves you can use or how they look because you have to unlock that stuff with microtransactions or WWE Universe mode where you have to book the shows yourself. Something like in HCTP. Even something basic like the Season mode in the PSX games would do. As far as I am concerned they don't even have to do voice acting. I'm fine with text. Or at least give me the option to clear the towers with whomever I want to do it. Or the option create custom towers.
  2. Edit: Nevermind. Wrong thread.
  3. CBS are trying to get a show Clarice Starling from Silence Of The Lambs off the ground. They aren't the first to try. Back in 2012 Lifetime announced that they were working on a show called "Glarice" after NBC announced that they were going to do a TV show about Hannibal Lecter. The proposed Lifetime show did not go forward though. The new show is supposed to take place in 1993, a year after the events of Silence Of The Lambs. The show will be written and produced by Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek: Picard, Fringe) and Jenny Lumet (Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard). https://deadline.com/2020/01/clarice-silence-of-the-lambs-sequel-tv-series-cbs-alex-kurtzman-jenny-lumet-big-commitment-1202828050/

    Music that is awful

    So I watched Highlander the Source for the first time today. They had former Uriah Heep singer John Sloman re-record Queen's "Princes Of The Universe" and "Who Wants To Live Forever": The lounge version of "Who Wants To Live Forever" is the worst.
  5. It's in the trailer. I don't think we need to put Han's return in spoiler tags. If they want us to be surprised bit it they shouldn't have put it in there. Edit: Nevermind. Totally forgot that Mia was Dom's sister. Makes totally sense to bring her back since this is about family.
  6. Wait, wasn't this supposed to be the final season? Did they renew it?
  7. For all the people for whom the video linked above is blocked as well:
  8. Helloween have reunited with former vocalist Michael Kiske and former guitarist Kai Hansen back in 2016. They have toured the world under the "Pumpkins United" banner for the last 3 years and they are working on a new album right now. Also the Night Flight Orchestra, the AOR/Classic Rock side project by Soilwork vocalist Björn Strid, will release a new album in February which I can't wait to hear. Demons & Wizards, the side project by Blind Guardian's Hansi Kürsch and Iced Earth mastermind Jon Schaffer, will finally release their 3rd album next moth as well.
  9. TMZ are reporting that one of his daughters, Gianna Maria Onore Bryant, died in the crash as well. Truly awful...

    Cover Songs

    Another one I like is Quietdrive's cover of Toto's "Africa". Turns out the song works really well as a pop punk tune: (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FTQbiNvZqaY) Ten Second Songs has already been mentioned here. My favorite cover of his is System Of A Down's "Chop Sue" in the style of Swedish Occult Rock band Ghost: (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSvFpBOe8eY) Another fun one is DragonForce's take on Céline Dion's "My Heart Will Go On". We definitely need more Power Metal covers of Pop songs: (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNsm2P0l_7Y) Motörhead did a bunch of covers over their career. My favorite is from their last studio album "Bad Magic" on which they covered the Rolling Stone's "Sympathy For The Devil": (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgnClrx8N2k)

    Cover Songs

    The first one is a cover of Aerosmith's "Dream On" from the "Not The Same Old Song And Dance" tribute album. It features Ronnie James Dio on vocals and Yngwie Malmsteen on guitar. It isn't too different from the original and Malmsteen's fretboard wanking can be a bit much but I love it nonetheless. Dio has a great voice for ballads and more somber songs. A shame that he barley ever recorded song like that. (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-2u2lhGO4w) Then there is Peter Gabriel's version of "The Book Of Love". I discovered the song through the Scrubs series finale. It's beautiful. The original is good as well but the orchestral arrangement and Gabriel's vocals elevate the song to something amazing. (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7FtbrDFgB_4) Another Cover I've always been partial to is Seether's version of George Michael's "Careless Whisper": (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=izGwDsrQ1eQ This is a cover by Van Canto, a German a-capella metal band (yes, this is a thing that exists). They covered "Into The West" by Annie Lennox from the "Lotr: The Return Of The King" Soundtrack: (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HvF31-2bVNE) And finally a Queen cover. Metalium's Cover of Queen's "Show Must Go On". The original is perfect of course but I think this is very well done as well: (Original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t99KH0TR-J4)

    Cover Songs

    Back in 2004 an Australian comedian too the lyrics of the Cannibal Corpse song "Rancid Amputation" and created a lounge music arrangement of the song. That was done in response to Australian politicians wanting to cancel their upcoming tour:
  13. They are rebooting Digimon Adventure in April. According to Anime News Network the show will feature an original story and not simply be a remake of the original anime. Source: Anime News Network The new movie "Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution", which takes place five years after Tri, will be released in Japan on February 21. It will screen in select theaters in the United States on March 25. Source: Anime News Network So the 02 kids will be on this although the main focus appears to be on the 01 kids judging by the trailer. It's not ideal but realistically this is the best scenario fans of Adventure 02 could hope for. The trailer is dope though.
  14. As far as nostalgia goes Adventure 02 is as important to me as Adventure 01. I know 02 has it's fair share of problems and that it isn't as highly regarded by Japanese and international fans alike. But writing them out of the show in just a hamfisted way and not even bringing them in for the grand finale just feels wrong and disrespectful. We don't even get to see them. We only see their silhouettes in one scene. They couldn't even be bothered to come up with updated designs for them for that one scene. And that is all they needed to do. They didn't need to animate them or hire voice actors. But apparently that was still too much effort. If you going to just ignore 02 you might as well do what they did with the most recent Halloween sequel and ignore everything that happened after the original show entirely.
  15. It's not that good. And they completely ignore the 02 kids. I was very underwhelmed by the whole thing. I hope the next series of movies they do will be better. At the very least they have released aged-up version of the 02 kids as promotional material so they hopefully won't ignore them this time around.
  16. Agreed. But I also feel that it is kinda unfair to compare the two. The Pokemon anime is basically a promotional tool for the games that they can keep going for as long as they keep making the games. And they keep everything as simple and streamlined as they can so nobody has troubles getting into the anime even if they haven't been watching since episode 1. All you need to know is that Ash is trying to become a Pokemon master, that is traveling the world with his Pikachu and 2 interchangeable companions to reach that goal and that every now and then Team Rocket will try to steal his Pokemon and you are good to go. There is no complex plot, no character development, no deep lore and the stakes are low (except for the movies). Digimon on the other hand had a more detailed plot, more interesting characters who go through changes and who have relationships with other characters that develop over the course of the show, deeper lore (especially when you get to later seasons), high stakes and most important of all: an endpoint. The show isn't designed to be open-ended. And with the exception of Digimon Adventore 01 and 02 we never meet the same group of Tamers twice.
  17. He announced his retirement in 2015 due to health issues in an interview. Initially Geddy Lee claimed that Peart was misquoted and that he was taking a break. However in 2018 Alex Lifeson confirmed that Rush were officially done.
  18. There wasn't any news about it. He kept it private.
  19. Rolling Stone reports that Rush drummer Neil Peart passed away last Tuesday at age 67. The cause was a brain tumor. He had been battling brain cancer for the last three-and-a-half years. Statement by the band:
  20. Nope. Just Triss. There is a journal entry that you get if you import a Witcher 1 save and chose Shani over Triss in which you learn that they broke up amicably because Geralt wasn't ready to settle down. Which totally makes sense to me. I'm not upset about that. But the same journal entry also states that after their break-up with Shani Geralt needed comforting and found solace in Triss' arms. And the first scene of the game is Geralt in bed with Triss. Despite me choosing to kick her to the curb in the first game. I get that for the story of this game Triss needs to be on speaking terms with Geralt but did they really need to make them a couple again right away? If they were just going to disregard the choice I made then why give me the choice to begin with? Also they only added the journal entry for the enhanced edition of the game. If you bought Witcher 2 when it was originally released and imported your save in which you chose Shani you wouldn't have learned about that at all. As if she never existed.
  21. I'm so pissed that they wrote Shani out of Witcher 2. Screw Triss Merigold. I'll ditch her as soon as I get the chance.
  22. The Mandalorian takes place in between episode 6 and 7, right? Major spoiler for Rebels.
  23. Radar Online are reporting that Ozzy Osbourne is on his deathbed. His daughter Kelly Osbourne denies the report in an Instagram post that has since been deleted (at least I can see it on her profile). I really hope this isn't true. But when the first reports of Dio's passing were published his wife/manager also initially denied them before officially confirming his death the next day. Edit: TMZ posted a video that was recorded yesterday in which Ozzy is out and about with his wife. And Ozzy himself made an Instagram post about it. So this really seems to be fake news.
