Another week, another PR nightmare for Warner Bros of their own making. The studio’s streaming service, Max, has released its list of titles coming in December and leaving before the New Year. There are a lot of good things on that list that have no guarantee of showing up anywhere else, but what leapt out to people was the mention that Looney Tunes was leaving. The whole thing.
Zenescope is famous for putting their own signature spin on a lot of classic fables, including the Victorian world of vampires and those who hunt them. Their own Liesel Van Helsing is returning in a new miniseries that will be partially funded and promoted through a Kickstarter campaign that launches next month.
Early this year Free League announced they were working on The Walking Dead Universe, a tabletop RPG based on the AMC TV show and its spinoffs. A crowdfunding campaign came with that announcement and reached almost $600,000, well over its initial goal. If you missed that campaign, today happens to be the day the game becomes available commercially.
Even after all these years (24 if you’ve been keeping track), the soundtrack of Chrono Cross is still one of the greatest in video game history. If you’re going to do a cover album of game melodies, CC is the perfect pick — which is why Random Beats is far from the first to do one. But it is the first we’ve heard to give the tracks a hip-hop flavor.
Strong Girl Bong-Soon gets hired to work as a bodyguard for the president of a gaming company. Her boss runs his own company but he is also a chaebol heir. His father wants him to be the successor to the family business, even though he has older brothers. He starts receiving threats and Bong-Soon’s job is not only to physically protect him, but help him uncover who is threatening him.
Disney+’s Marvel content got off to a very strong start with the imaginative, innovative WandaVision…and then it was gradually downhill from there. But Marvel is finally putting some of the better shows on physical media, starting tomorrow with the one that started it all. You can pop the discs in and relive the mystery, the media satire and the exhilaration of finally seeing the MCU Wanda fully transform into the Scarlet Witch of the comics (y’know, before the movies screwed that up).
“Perfect Marriage Revenge” is a romance/drama that tells the story of Han Yi-Joo, a young girl who was adopted into a rich family but never accepted as a part of the family. Meanwhile, her little sister is showered with love and spoiled rotten. She is constantly reminded by her “mother” who adopted her that she is “fake” and her little sister is “real”. Meaning that she should be thankful she was adopted and never try to receive all the wealth and property that should go directly to her little sister.
Earlier this year, BIT.TRIP Rerunner was launched on Steam: a new version of the classic endless runner rhythm game. It not only included many new levels but the feature “Runner Maker” — a level creation editor that let anyone make their own BIT.TRIP levels and share them. Said levels were limited to the music tracks preinstalled to the game, however.
There’s a big problem with the Nintendo 64 library on Nintendo Switch Online: a sizable chunk of the good titles for the system were released by a studio that is now owned by a rival business. Rare was considered one of the best, if not the best, developers of N64 games. In the 90s Nintendo owned a controlling interest of Rare’s stock and their games were released exclusively on the N64. Early in the Gamecube era, Nintendo cut Rare loose and Microsoft, needing reasons for people to purchase their new XBox console, bought them outright.
“The Deal” immediately introduces the 3 main characters in Episode 1: Lee Joon-Sung, Song Jae-Hyo, and Park Min-Woo all went to high school together.
Another Anime NYC is in the record books and Crunchyroll had a large presence there, as we predicted. But they also announced many acquisitions and confirmed a lot more during their industry panel. They sent us a full list of everything for our convenience and yours.
