So far the new TV season, has been complete shit! As far as I am concerned. But tomorrow is the start of all the CW superhero shows:) Supergirl,Arrow, The Flash and yes even L.O.T:P I am most excited for Supergirl Season 2 for a couple of reasons 1. it's now going to be on the CW network instead of CBS, It will be very interesting to see how the "production" value of the show will be? 2. Superman! I am totally a Superman fan, in fact I will take Supes over Batman any day:P And the guy they got to play him, Tyler Hoechilin looks like Superman stepped out the comic-book. And speaking of Arrow season 5 , I was one the fence with season 4 and I told myself at the beginning IF it sucked shit! yest again? I would stop watching Arrow all together and even posted this on the official CW page. Thankfully it didn't disappoint , last year. SO I will be watch all of the shows hopefully on the "brand new" CW app? A lot people like the Netflix Marvel Superhero shows and I got say, I don't care for them at all. I watch "Superhero shows" to superhero's doing "superhero thing's" IF I want "grounded in reality" I will watch Arrow. And I am usually a Marvel Guy over DC, but not in this case. See my biggest gripe was with Arrow in the past , every flippin season he had to "save his city" but then I realized that's what the Flash does as well. Except with flipping Speedsters:( Plus this is a very old comic-book trope anyways , to re-use an idea several times. I think the highlight for me is that Tobin Bell aka Jigsaw will be the "voice" of one of the big bad's this year:) And I am willing to give Legends of Tomorrow another shot? Even though I got so fucking board , half way the season and stopped watching. Basically 1. the Justice Society and 2. The L.O.D legion of doom;) and it looks finally "lightening up" and give us what we were promised with those early trailers from last season. I know that each and everyone is a "drama" based show but, you gotta take a page from SG and keep it light. So here are some video's too hopefully get you in the mood:) Peace Out!
For the next week or two? I will be covering the launch of WWE 2K17 and plus, I will have MY review up at the end of next week. So enjoy;)
Persona 5 won’t be out in South Korea until next year, but the game has already caused some controversy there online.
Note: This article might have Persona 5 spoilers? Maybe not. Depends on how you view Persona and spoilers.
The game will be subtitled in Korean, which should make many players there happy. What isn’t making some happy is imagery on P5 character Ryuji Sakamoto’s shoes. He doesn’t always wear the same sneakers in the game, but while at school, he wears these:
That certainly appears to be Rising Sun Flag motif. In South Korea, there have been articles and posts online pointing this out. Obviously, due to historical associations Korean people have with that flag, there will certainly be greater sensitivity to that sort of imagery.
While national paper Kyeonggi Daily recently published an article about this, even reporting that there’s apparently a protest petition, note that Persona is very popular with Korean gamers and not everyone is bound to react the same.
(Apparently, there is also in-game dialogue that mentions “demanding an apology and reparations”, which Kyeonggi Daily mentions as an allusion of the apology and reparations given to “comfort women.” I’m currently playingPersona 5 and don’t recall that bit of dialogue, but if you have a screenshot, do put it in the comments!)
I’d be more inclined to say that the Rising Sun design on Ryuji’s sneakers is to draw a direct line to that subculture, and not, per se, to 20th century aggression (even if there’s an argument that the bosozoku’s embrace of said imagery is a direct link to that). So, when people in Japan see a kid with dyed hair, talking rough and sporting Rising Sun imagery, they’d immediately think “yankii.”
But South Korea isn’t Japan, and just as some imagery in Baymax upset people in the country, these sneakers appear to be doing the same. Don’t be surprised if the shoes are slightly changed for the South Korean release.
I just found out that their will be no Review Copies for Mafia III:( That is not a good sign at all. Their is only 2 reason's for something like this? 1. the game is fucking garbage. 2. They being 2K and Hanger 13, don't want the game leaked or being spoiled? Ugh! this does not bode to well for Mafia 3:(
