Chris Brown just does not get it. People are still angry at him because he is clearly not apologetic about abusing Rihanna. It is amazing how he thinks that he is the victim in this situation. Also, the way he tried to justify or brush off abuse Rihanna by saying it was a mistake he made because he was young is gross. FYI, beating the shit out of someone is not okay at ANY age.

@Daniel_Newton: That's quite an interesting opinion. Most people tend to have it the other around with Airbender being their favorite. And even among the Legend of Korra fanbase, people don't like Korra as a character. There was even a thread on how unlikable Korra was on Giantbomb.

In my opinion, the Legend of Korra series is a show that is just as good as the first series. When Nick handed the avatar creators a second series, they could have done a repeat of Airbender and gotten away with it. Instead, you can see that they really went out of their comfort zone with Korra. LoK is basically everything Airbender is not and I appreciate that the creators went that extra mile.

Is there any chance we can talk about something other than Nintendo? Seriously, there's two other companies (Sony and Microsoft) making consoles. And even when you're excluding them, there's numerous publishers who are doing big things such as Uibisoft, EA, Activision. And even when you're excluding all of those people, there are still Steam, GOG and all the games on the indie platform.

And most of these games aren't even obscure. For example, I'm been having trouble finding people to talk about Final Fantasy XV. And the response I've gotten so far is that people aren't interested or have no experience with the franchise. I find it hard to believe that an anime site would have no interest or experience with a franchise that has introduced millions to Japanese RPGs/games. It is utterly absurd.

Look, it is not that I don't like Nintendo. It is just that I am really, really bored of just talking about one company.

I just saw Man of Steel for the first time! And it was pretty bad. If Batman V. Superman looks anything like MoS, its going to be a rough ride. Things are already looking pretty bad. Just look at what Batman V. Superman writer David Goyer has to say about She-Hulk:

Craig Mazin: The real name for She-Hulk was Slut-Hulk. That was the whole point. Let’s just make this green chick with enormous boobs. And she’s Hulk strong but not Hulk massive, right? … She’s real lean, stringy…
David S. Goyer: She’s still pretty chunky. She was like Chyna from the WWE.
Mazin: The whole point of She-Hulk was just to appeal sexistly to ten-year-old boys. Worked on me.
Goyer: I have a theory about She-Hulk. Which was created by a man, right? And at the time in particular I think 95% of comic book readers were men and certainly almost all of the comic book writers were men. So the Hulk was this classic male power fantasy. It’s like, most of the people reading comic books were these people like me who were just these little kids getting the shit kicked out of them every day… And so then they created She-Huk, right? Who was still smart… I think She-Hulk is the chick that you could fuck if you were Hulk, you know what I’m saying? … She-Hulk was the extension of the male power fantasy. So it’s like if I’m going to be this geek who becomes the Hulk then let’s create a giant green porn star that only the Hulk could fuck.

ew. ew. ew.

It's really too bad that Marvel with have to go through the Marvel Civil War story line without Spider-man, but them's the breaks I guess.

Pokémon » Pokémon Trading Card Game Club

@Daniel_Newton: Today, IGN released their review of the iPad version of the Online Trading Card Game. They gave the game a score of 6.0 out of 10.0. The writer must have had a really terrible experience with the game because she ends the review by recommending other games. Is she right? I'll find out tonight when I download the thing and play a couple of rounds.

Off-topic: On Wednesday, the BBC will be releasing a Free-to-Play Doctor Who game which will teach children how to code. The BBC have said this about the project:

The idea behind it is simply to use one of our biggest, most popular brands to inspire children to find out more about programming.

Sounds like a good idea. I'm planning on trying it out Wednesday because I'm curious as to what they will be showcasing. Also, more Doctor Who can't be a bad thing!

Link to that article.

Kakashi Hatake » Why does Kakashi Hatake allways wears a ninja mask?

To hide that smexy face of his. In all seriousness, it appears that Kishi never imagined a face for him since it seems he was never meant to be a main character based on that quote above.

I heard that you were not up to date with the latest story developments in the series. I know you're going to explain yourself later, but I want to make sure these questions get answered.
