To be very open about this & don’t take this the wrong way at point. I’m not a very big fan of Steven Crowder humor when he is talking about on his show. I do get it on how that he is trying to make fun of the things that are going on in the world that we are living in. He do pushes the limits of the things that are not aloud on YouTube & gets in some trouble with them.
As of late YouTube has gone overboard with the way that they treat people with a different type of political views then they do. Now I think that its ok to have a different view & still have good relationships with others. Some of the big tech companies just got to have their great hive mind of a bubble for them & there friends. Shows how shallow these fools can be at times. I don’t think we need anything like that we need to have a open space for views on the world we live in.
I the past I have disagreed with many thing that people that I watched on YouTube & still support their right to say the things that I don’t like. We can’t just go after those that are pulling in massive numbers that others are losing. Is that the way to prove that you are in the right. By just pulling compilation off the platform is not a fair game to play.
Can Steven actually win his case against YouTube? I don’t know as know. He just filed a few days ago & many people are siding with Steven & his team. I just like to wish him the best of luck & I hope that he don’t get too cocky during the trial. I know that he has a plan to go forward by forcing YouTube not terminating his channel. By giving YouTube some legal documents.
Because as of right now Crowder’s channel has two strikes on it right now. If he gets one more strike his channel is gone for good. Now I don’t that will happen during the trial, but I do think that YouTube will do something in retaliation for the lawsuit that Steven put them thought & it will not be pretty at all.
Overall I just hope that YouTube & all the creators that are the platform can come to a common ground for those that have a different type of opinion then me. I do like to have a few more debate on my personal YouTube channel & see where we differ & can find some common ground on things.
Man this past weekend we had a return of new convention that had to merge with another event last year & now this year. I had a to really to be open that this was not like last year’s event. I think that I did a got job. So this year was at a different place for this year & was a bit concerned about how much space was going to be open for walking around & not bumping into others.
Now I was happy to see that there was a good amount of space to walk around in the artist’s area. As for the area for the collectible were at there was some spots in the space was a bit tight & bumming into others was hard to not to do. I can’t blame the way it was set up. I try to my best to give it a shot, but it was just a little bit much for me.
The level of guests that they had their was a bit better than last year’s event by have 3 former power rangers, Sandlot’s Yeah yeah, Might Ducks’ Goldberg & Ray Park. I think that this had to be a good year for the guests that was there.
As for the panels. Just your standard thing at convention. There was nothing to awesome to go check out. Except the Power Ranger Playback. Which was fun to see live in person to see the faces of the team that loses the game. Because they have to eat ice cream with some odd toppings that are normally on ice cream.
So overall with the new location and & bigger space this year. I think that that it was a good idea that this event needed. I do hope that in the future they don’t just cram as much vendor space & not enough walking space for the patrons that are there.
One of the best things that I like about digital games is that we don’t need to worry about shelf space & you can find them for a good price when they go on sell. The main thing that love about it is the fact you can play old games that are from older systems. For the past few couple gaming companies that have made some very bad choices that people have called them out for their bad decisions that some people where not happy at all.
Now I never had a bad exercise with some of the things that other had. It is nice to talk about the things that others have. Like a friend of mind that that had to buy the same game for different Nintendo consoles that was not a very good for anyone to do just to play one of their favorite games of all time. They do try to keep some of their best games in the store & at a fair price for all the games.
Microsoft has made the decision to make all of the original Xbox games digital & playable for their current generation consoles. I think that is a good thing for fans that started after the after the Xbox was released & never got a chance to play some great games that the Xbox had for it.
P.C. has been always been a hit or miss on classic games. Yes you Good Old Games that has a tons of great classic & modern games. Steam has a good amount of classic games. Just not as good GOG. So just pick what you like & go with it.
As for Sony & their big mistake on preserving the great games that have in their library. This was only on the PlayStation 3 & Vita stores that was going to closed for good. Lucky the fans give some feedback & Sony decided to keep the stores open. Now I was a mad at Sony & was going to do a post on the fact that Sony was going to close down a chunk of their own history & throw it away for no reason at all. Lucky they changed their minds & listened to the fans that made them the company they are today.
We all need to hold on to the past that made these great video games companies & not hold them to the fire on all the trash of garbage that they had put out. Yeah we can say that "This game was bad & is cloud used more time to better." If we just look back at all the games that we can find to remind us of the greatness of video games.
For the past week. We been hearing that LeBron James posted a picture of a police office that had to deadly force. Just to save a life of young girl. That was about to get stabbed by another girl. Now the body cam footage that everyone that was released to the public. So we all can see the event later the same day that it happened.
At first I was happy see a good officer saving a life & did have no choice, but to fire his service weapon just to save an another life. I don’t that it’s fair to post a picture of police officer & say that “We’re Next” in these days. Because with all the things that are going on in this world. We do need to watch what we say to those that follow us on social media & try to be as clear as possible.
I personally don’t follow any celebrity that seems to be out of touch with the real world & just posts anti government stories that have no credibility at all. To me it’s a good way to see the real person that they are in their world. I like to see more of it. With the backlash against LeBron that still very hot. I do fear that some parts of the NBA will not be welcoming him to their stadium for some amount of time in the near future.
Now he did delete the post & made a statement on the post & that is good to know that LeBron did do the right thing, but the internet never forgets anything that you post on the internet. I did see the post & was sick to see that he had the guts to show us the officer that saved a girl’s life. I’m just sad that we are now doxxing those that are putting them in danger every time they go to work.
To me this never OKAY. Nobody has to doxxed a good person that just saved another’s life. I now that we all can be quick to judge in the heat of the moment & know that we can wait a few days till all the facts are out. To others they need to judge as quickly as possible & to see if they can get away with it.
Personal I do know that LeBron does have a history of getting things wrong & don’t seem to be well educated on the thing that he is talking about at all. He did supported China on the takeover of Hong Kong, said that “He was scared of being hunted down by white cops” for what ever reason & now it’s White cops are killing kids in the streets.
With this latest event that has us all talking & myself included. I think that this was the line that no one should we cross. As a human being we all need to stop & call these people out for doing something that is putting others in dangerous situations that we had a hand in the first place.
I don’t wish that LeBron gets harmed in anyway that you can think of. I do wish that he just listened to the facts & then give his point on the topic after some time has past. So that we can have less of a mob like mentality on those that are risking their life for others & the one that given their life of those to live on another day.
Knowing that this world seems to like to make a ruckus for the oddest reason & not care about the people that worked hard to just make a product that we can enjoy. Now that people will try to have hope that any game that is being criticized for the wrong reason that has nothing to do with the game at all.
Just to give you guys some background on 6 days of Falluah & some personal thoughts about the internet going crazy over a game that is not hurting anyone. The game was scheduled to originally was to come out in 2010 & be publish by Konami. Their was some major backlash against the game & was canceled.
As time past I did forget about this game & was just hoping that this game was will come out as an independent game. So I still had some hope that we can play a game that was made with those that fought in the Battle of Falluah in 2004.From what I been hearing. The game does have some of the people that fought in the battle & that was a hostage in the city. To me this is a good way to make a very accurate story & know what really happened in inside the city.
The most recent complaint that this game has studded up as of late is that this game is a “Murder Simulator against Muslims” & “It will bread the next generation of Mass Murders” or something like that. I tend to just not pay attention to any on these fools that think that know more about a game that has nothing to do on what they claim.
CAIR (Council of American-Islamic Relations) has now been asking that this game to be deplatfrom on all the platforms that the game is set to release on. Now the thing that I can’t seem to understand. Why that this games is being attacked for a story of a real event that has people that was there? I can get it for making the families that lost loved one in the battle & all, but this just a target harassment campaign to see if a game publisher to drop the game for good & never see the light of day.
Any normal person that seems to that loves to a good shooter game that has some good hype behind it. As I been very hype for a good story that comes with it. Now I’m going to be fair about the new claims that CAIR are making. I just wish that people just quit making any fake claims that are not true.
I can’t see to imagine that anyone will attack a game that has been thought a lot of chaos that has not needed for a game that did nothing to anyone. We need to call out those that are so stupid & just hate to see all the hard work, time & money that gone into a game that has not harm anyone.
For the past 4 years or so. People have been getting together on the internet & to just do one thing & that thing is to cancel those that don't agree with them at all or did something that over 30 years ago. At most of the time the things that were not to bad are now for some reason.
I know that their is a long list of people & things that been cancelled for the dumbest reasons. To me this is just a bad example of how we can be better than this. I do understand that somethings don't seem to aged well in things that we like. Some of the things I like are still that some to me. If you put into context then you can get it, but it seems that people don't seem to care about that these days.
With so much being called out of being a problem for some stupid reason. I get that I just do not seem to care about that issue at all. This is why we need to start caring about are culture & not let anyone to tell us what we can or can't make for others to enjoy.
Now let me got to one of the latest victims of the Cancel Culture madness. Troy Leavitt was high up in Avalanche software & was very open about his views on some very hot topics in the gaming industry. He does have a YouTube channel that he did have a lot to say as well there. I do subscribe to his channel & think that its a good channel to check out.
To me having a opinion that is not a popular one is not a bad one for whatever reason. I just don't know that having a hot take on topic is worth a termination at all. I have not always agree with Troy the things he said. I do let him say what is on his mind & just comment on the video. Then I move on with my day.
Do I think that is will stop any time soon? Not in the near future. With the way that some of these people are acting & don't seem to stop on how many targets that are left that are yet to know the count of them.
With today being Groundhog Day & I 'm not a big on this holiday for many reasons that I will not name them at all. I was just looking at some videos to kill some time & I founded one on PETA. For some odd reason they keep on attacking the of Punxsutawney for the mistreatment of Phil.
Now I just don't care about the fact he sees his shadow or not. These people just don't seem to get the fact the Groundhog gets a better life then most Groundhogs that are in the wild or in any ZOO in the world. To me this was a joke. Plus they seem to not know the different between Pirie Dog & a Groundhogs in the ads that post around the area of Punxsutawney.
This is just the tip of the iceberg of the craziness that they been up to as of lately. They think that we should change the way that we talk. Now did see this on there Twitter account & think that they need to get a realty check to see that there actions are not very good to anyone that will fall for this at all.
I never thought that PETA will ever do the things that they pulling as of late. So I will post the things that PETA like us to change the way we been speaking for years & can't change it at all. I don't see the reason that we have to change the way that we been saying for generations & nobody been hating on them.
Sometimes that I think that PETA is just an out of touch group that needs to update the way that do business & just try to be more relevant on the mission that they been doing for many years. Have I been a bit harsh on them? Yeah I have been a little hard on them & think that they need to focus on the task at hand.
To me PETA is just a joke of a organization that needs to don't making statements that they know is true at all. We also need them to don't pulling some king of stunt to get in the headlines of the media & save as many animals as they can.
For the pass few weeks. A small game studio by the name of Top Hat Studios has been under attack by the Twitter mobs for having their recent game that they made receiving some major outrage for no real reason. Now I do love it when things don't go the way of the Twitter Mob & seeing their true colors are being posted on the internet.
The game that come into question Sence. It's just a simple point & click type game that has some horror elements in the story. To me I would like to try this game out & see how good it feels. It dose look like a hybrid of 2.5D & anime style art design. Which is not to bad of a art style to go with.
As I was looking at the games art style & didn't see what the crazies where attacking the studio for. I did see the statement that Top Hat release & was shock that this game main target audience are the adults that can buy the game in the first place.
Some of the claims say that the game will hurt women & needs to pull from the digital market. To me this is just a forum of censorship that doesn't need to happen at all. I just don't get it. the game has been on steam for years & to my knowledge steam has not been a call for them to pull the game from there site.
Just to make things wrost for the twitter mob. There was real death threats sent to the studio & Top Hat did post some of the messages that they received to their social media pages. I not got to show them here. You can find them yourselves. Some of them was just sick to look at.
My over all thoughts are this. Small studios that don't have the money to change the vision of the games that they make is already hard on them. I beat that they had to make a lot of hard chooses just to make their first few games. As they got to be better on making some of the games as time passed & improved on them since they released them.
With all the crazy things that is going on today, I been hear a lot of things that is very unsettling for the future of theaters that I love to go to for a small amount of time & just to see a great film that makes me think "Wow. Just wow."
I haven't gone to a theaters much before the pandemic & I know that I'm missing a lot of great films the big silver screen. That was nice to see that we are getting some new films & have a bit of hope that they all those that work in the industry get back on there feet.
To me I just don't think that we may see the same level of new films that are coming out to keep them afloat for long. This level of opiumism I have now is just not good enough to think that all the theaters stay open for the long run.
Now can they really keep them open with only a few new films that are being release as of now. We may see the end of the theaters in there current forum. I do think that we may have some hope that a few of smaller theaters may have the best hope of survival in the end.
As for a long term prediction. Some of the bigger name theaters may have to down size or sell off some of the theaters that they have around the country. Now this sounds a bit stupid, but I think that it's the only way to make shore that they are still up & running for years to come.
Most of these are just me thinking on what some of these theaters need to be to stay around. If they don't do something in the next few weeks. All the theaters will be gone for good.
There is one more thing that I think that is hurting the theaters as well & it just hit me as I has typing this up. Are the many studios that starting their own streaming service. Can that be the main reason that some many theaters are going to be closing their doors for good? We may not know that real impact for a few years, but I think that it is a big part of why some theaters will be shutting down soon.
With one of the best games that 2020 has to let to come out. I been hyped for their game since 2012 & been very patient after that. I been very curious on the volume of the content, the level of depth of the story & characters that we will be seeing in the game, amount of customization, what factions are in the game, the detail of the graphics & what good Easter eggs that we don’t not about.
I’m been very happy that the game has been in development for 8 years & was not push out just to make the money quick. Then let it see if the games was a successful or not. I was surprised that we got some good trailers at E3 2018 & 2019. There was a surprise that no one saw coming. After the big reveal of Johnny Sliverhand (Keanu Reeves) was in the game. I just know that this is a most play game for any platform that you can play it on.
Can this game meet the hype that it was set for the past 8 years? I think it can. With the level on detail that we been seeing as of late. It will shatter all the records that games have came before hand. If you had to buy a game at lunch. This is one of them that is a most have to play.
What platform that I will be playing on? GOG & Xbox One for me as of now, but I will be getting the other platforms later on as the game gets a few things fixed down the road. I’m not going to buy every version of the game now. That would be need to do. Would I need to make a little more space on my Xbox one & PC? Yeah I can see that happening to everyone that gets the game. I’m not going to say that this game is going to be a small play though after hearing that if you are going to do every single mission. You my get around 125 hours. Yeah it’s going to be a long game.
Now the only that I have a good question for the future of this game that we all like to know? Is there going to be some DLC in the near future for the game? I don’t know. We don’t just yet. I just like to see the main game & just let the game speak for it self. I do think that we may get some expansions, but just not knowing when & how much.
I just like to see where this game goes & see if we can get some feedback on the future of the game. The one thing that I like to see is the game become a franchise in the near future & it be around for many years.
Today we heard that the actor that was the inbodyment of one of the greatest villains that ever been on the silver screen has died. David Prowse has become one with the force. He one of many stars of Star Wars that had a good time on the set & was a great person to be around his fans.
I threat he did have some success outside of Star Wars & was a bodybuilder before he got in to acting. I think that this if you try new things & see how far you can go with it. You maybe very good it at a long the road. I just shock that he was quitting do some international travel & not doing any conventions anymore. This is just another blow to the world of entertainment.
