On this episode: @Chrinkster @TooMannyMan @Oluwaponz

Yeah, welcome to for is academia podcast. We're back here with money, hello, and with Ponday Yo. And Yeah, we're just going to be catching up on the year, seeing how things have gone, both anime and Manga and everything else pretty much. But Yeah, how you guys been? You guys got up to? I've been all good. Not Too much. Coming up to you Christmas. So just cutting down a clock for my working for home, know, and you leave to be kicking off. So I can do fuck AOL. I can literally do the Act, same thing I've been doing the last few weeks. Yeah, at home, but feeling less guilt. You're so I'm literally waiting for that. But often that usual reading Manga, watching some anime. A should not be watching quite a lot animal recently, and I'm playing games as as it do else. We do much to do, not with amarian running around. He's White, see man, but yeah, touching. Everyone's touching everyone. How about you guys? Yeah, I've been good. Literally, I'm just think my mind is really just checking out a Christmas now work this stuff. I'm just working a way. I'm just trying to I'm waiting for the annual leave us or to kicking so I'm just going to be Tom more too. Fair probably do the same. I've been doing mostly as well. Just going Jim, watching a few TV shows here in the mostly gaming mostly. It's been especially been playing. Still should be tense. So five that game still got me hurt. I don't know when I'll burn up, but eventually may be. But yeah, just get by. I've been myself. I mean, workers working m same wherever time of the area is. Obviously there's I get a bit of time off. But yeah, just been trying to catch up with the latest Manga anime, trying to get back into playing a lot of single player games, not just like actually just been trying to do a bit of a catch up with all the marvel content that I've missed out of the past couple years. It's which has been this. It's been all right, like I've enjoyed quite a bit of it, but yeah, still a long way to go. A lot of the TV shows probably going to take my time, but I'm going to try and get around till as much as I can. I have to do. Recently one on the build up to no way, no way home. Despite of my film I watch all this writ my films from told me guires to UNDREGAL fields to Tom Hollands ones, even the scenes he was in civil war, just to prepare me for this film. Was Time War spent. I mean I think we might as well get into spider man, see as we watched it. Yeah, so I guess this is a spoiler. Kind of a lot. Yeah, I spoiler a lot. Or for watch we can. We could put a time stamp for if you want to miss out, if you're on a skip or the spider man content, because I'm going to be discussing the movie and it's going to be spoilers. Yeah, one more time spoilers. But yes, where as a quite a time stamp in the description if you don't want hear in the spider man spoilers. But yeah, what did you guys think? What did you think? That's MC film. Yeah, I can't like I came out of I came on. I feel saved best Emcu feel, you know, like literally, I thought that they it's especially the way they hit the nostalgia from the other films. I think they hit it right as well, I felt with the acting and with the villains that they brought in. I felt those great active performances all around. Really, I especially I loved Garfield when he came back, seeing him in Grazne and I love you for you. I really think Andrew Garfield is a great spider man. I've all you. I've always I've always said that I think it just on spider man. I will argue the best spider man just but not Peter Parker. This, I think, is the worst. People Park yes, but I think he might be the best spider man. The man, of course, to like the action scenes they had in the first film and also the jokes that he makes a very spider man like. Yeah, Tom Guy doesn't have great, not not great spider man scenes, but obviously you get the tree, not the chemistry of but spider man. Yeah, you like it. Translate from if you read the conversation some of the even watch the car teams, watching the cartoons. First say yeah, I felt like McGuire's. I'm not sorry. Garfields always had the best spider man. And then I've always thought toby was a great Peter Parker always great. Actually. That's that's why I just feels that Peter Parker. Yeah, literally, I guess. And with Tom Holland it's just a bit. I feel lucky. Yeah, the combinations that Garfield Best Spider Man McGuire, Bill McGuire, Best Peter Parker. But come on, and he's just great. I doing both my opinion. And also he has mcu writers and directors and producers, which the former too didn't have. And that's what we get feelings like flipping side men and and Eddie Brooks Venom. That the'll just what...

...can we get? The first spider man film that I said as about to be say books and Venom was was awful. Oh you be yes, rider, I'm sorry, ignore me, I'm realized. You're talking about spider man free. The yeah, I know, not, no way from home. No, I don't. Yeah, yeah, okay, yes, yes, yeah, I think that that. When spider man free came a year I think it was very convolute. That's why the plot was very convoluted. Too many they try to do too many arts and Ingon. Want something. Didn't really Peter Parkers personality any mesh wells well, Pete Parts. But yeah, when you had them, the venomson bio ever any had a whole scene when you run around dancing. It's just, yeah, unnatural. Yeah, standpoint. Yeah, but yeah, this film. It was great. It was will great acting all around from all the villains that came in. Yeah, I guess we'll get into it. So obviously it picks up from the last film. Spider man is exposed. Yeah, his identities rebuilt to public and public perception of him is that he is essentially a villain that's killed mysterio. Yeah, and you know, in the grand scheme of things, people have general idea that mysterio is like one of the biggest saviors the flood, the in in America at the time. The world, world, the world, the world. Yes, they went to Paris and then Lund Paris, Rome, London. Yeah, it was just so and an immediate manipulated you know, because j join exce j John, I don't like spider when you see, you know, any propagandy can do to land the spider man's name, he's all over it. And this is most other things. So you have you know, you see it everyday life of the public opinion with can be divided or something big, for example. This was the case here. So yeah, it's quite it was quite interesting just to see how he would respond, respond to that, because obviously that was always going to be a major thing. Yeah, after seeing the trailers, want to see what kind of things happened as a result of that, and I feel like especially the college mission. Yeah, kind of kind of line of store of the storyline. I found that quite interesting to think that his friends are now being put in a very proculiar situation because of a Spaderman, because of who he is, as you know, even what he's done, but who he is and just that whole you can see those a fracturing relationship between the characters at that point in time. They wanted to stick with him, but they knew that there was there was an issue being related with spider man. Yeah, and and I think that that's the biggest difference between Tom Holland spider man in the former, to you, is that Tom Holland be in spidering people parkuld they necessarily have much consequences to his personal like he can go off and be spider man, is still come back to everything being attached as it was in Gods. The Friendship Group is family dynamics, on and so forth. Iver told McGuire is like he like he couldn't have a normal life and be spider man the same way, similar to underglfold, have him being spider man completely, like essentially cook called his girlfriend the time minute, and I feel like they should have had with Tom Hollands. When is that he didn't have enough consequences in regards to trying to do both. It was too smooth for him to a certain extent, obviously. Yeah, but in the finals, but up, but this time in this vitamin film is the first time. I yeah, somem he's finally it's had where, because Peter Parker, traditionally he's got his life, is actually being very tragic, you know. Yeah, the amount of loss he's had throughout his life, family, lovers, etc. Is What he's actually had, the very tragic life living his life as a super spider man. So, as we saw in this one, this a first instance we see of Tom Holland's Peter Parker experience and loss. You know, we've it was never really seen him upset your apart. Okay, maybe I am and yes, but that one. Yeah, but I think this is really significant one because that's his art. May Yeah, it's this is so it's never just that. Is that with the spider man's death, he wasn't directly involved, that he wasn't it wouldn't? He would never blame himself for it. Over on me he would. So back to Garfield and McGuire, to both had the deaths of Uncle Ben and and when, respectfully, they blame themselves for those deaths and and those deaths essentially molded the characters that the work and the tragedy in Tom Holland spider man didn't. MOREDEM has a character. He was literally every single film. He will still be that high school kid that does spider man now and again. Yeah, but now, after this film, he has to change and he has is like, not to be a bit cheesy, like he's finally adapting to that. We Great Power...

Concert Responsive Responsibility, which he didn't have before, which I think that's the biggest difference. And I appreciate this form so much. It's a good point actually about the ironman lost in comparison to he on me, because the iron man lost was a big glass to him, obviously, but it was also big loss to everyone. Yeah, not yet beyond the avengers, beyond everything, it was a big loss to essentially the world a point in time. But this is his first real personal loss, M and that we get to experience on screen. What we're gonna always thought about was the presence of Uncle Ben in the Tom Holland universe. Yeah, we could really have uncle Ben a where. They've written it for this one direct like it's like he really doesn't it's almost like he doesn't exist. It doesn't it doesn't exist. I this is just in some Lens. Yeah, seems like it does existing the mcu. They've not actually written in uncle I'm they mentioned the the two of the spinal a, but they mentioned they got it from Uncle Ben. Yeah, and then he got from I don't know, maybe we don't because, you know, this is now. They'd mentioned now there is now more verse. Maybe there was where uncle Ben I think. I think someone is one. Is just a universe were uncle Ben didn't exist. Yeah, that's it. Yeah, that's it's the easiest thing to assume. Yeah, that's easy and less and also if you even consider there are maize age in comparison Tom Onlin's taught me in comparison to the former too, like she's a lot younger. Yeah, it's got. It just a completely different archetype in regards to yeah, it because it's there's other things. It's no os but there's no as courts as well, for example. Well, it's just yea, yeah, the universe, which I don't I'm happy we didn't get album uncle Ben with Tom on because, when you like, I'm tired of seeing origin stories. We had enough, like, I don't want to another uncle Uncle Ben. Moment Tom One had to reboots the bird reboots by them was Simon's friend's name with him, which happy, Roady, happy, happy, I feel like happy. Almost took a responsibility. Is Tom Holland's uncle. Yeah, in that respect, not to the same level as, yeah, Uncle Ben, or even or even similar as I am. And because I think that's what yeah, I'm it's going to be replacement. Yeah, but, yeah, no, it was good. But yeah, getting further into the movie, the villains. Yeah, what was your he was your favorite villain? Definitely, definitely formats. During that William before land before I asked you in the firm that I think Jimmie Foxx was great, hilarious. I enjoy enjoyed this performance, the guy that please dot up. He eat again. You will gree if you don't know, I thought it was good. Yeah, you don't, but I just think willing the force performance was it was. It was very, very impact in fact, I think that's probably the performance of the movie. Oh, yeah, exactly, definitely, definitely, it's hot yet him and Tom Haunted. I think Tom Holland done an amazing job. I think it did amazing but my thing with with William the foe is that every scene he was in it was just very engrossing, like really really took a lot of the attention from the from what to see him was here, to him was just like lacking a lot of the scenes. When he's there, I'm not really thinking about Tom Holland or anyone else who's there. He's just I'm just focused on on the Green Goblin at all times and it's just the way he was able to act. And you know actors was I was born and then switch over to the Queen Goblin and they just felt like to completely emp different presences. Yeah, he nailed it. Know that you really didn't hear. Tom Holland was great. It's really, really good. But I feel like when it comes to the Green Goblin, yeah, and I feel like it's so it's almost poetic that, you know, the first real spider man villain, yeah, one that not only had the best performance and the most relevant to the most relevant villain to that, to that story. Yeah, and into trilogy. Yeah, no, no, yeah, yeah, and I had to thinks like my hands the cervation. What you and I was a great performance for we didn't clap at all. Huh, you fraud. Didn't club of to in the cinema clap at least twice. But I I love the film, not cle that's that's the most time I've been in a Ceba. That that was, why, the best cinematic experience I've had notice, because that's the best form watching the cinema. It was just fue close to the Vimin people vibing that everyone react in the same way. It is. It just elevated my enjoyment of the film. It was the best cinematicage birds I've heard. It was a lot of my cinema. I think for me, my best cinematic spirs was still in fitting will. I wish I so on minut that really is what I'm one of my only regrets. I wish us so. Yeah, I didn't see any of May when that films done. If the Amish was tend it was mad tens people just looking around and murmuring. It felt like that that's something had happened in the actual cinema, not us doing it. Was crazyy. But now this...

...film was good. This one was was it was a very good turn out. I didn't watch it on midnight release, but still there's a lot of good reactions. People did sound up and happen. Yeah, and then they'll clappom you know, by the introduction of I'm never typing for anything. I did clap at the young like no, no, clapped at the end of film. Actually, I think. I don't know, just a reaction. I think was when every golfing him out. Yeah, I think when Golfe came out and that caught let's go, and then when tell people I came out. Think that's what got the biggest year. That's so, yeah, don't I think the obviously when golf came up first and was like yeah, same, but obviously everyone's anticipating McGuire to come out next and when he did that just erupted back. I think the biggest show was when, what it might see them anyways, was when golf feels saved. MJ. Yeah, let it out, because I was like the mirror of him not be as world man to yeah, when Stacy, we can get it. I really, I really like the fact that little chokes and a little statements that will put out that just refer to the to the reflective films. Yeah, really like that a lot. When I think that's why it hit the nostalgia note right with the way they were, you know, you, as you said, the little phrases, words were etc. I think they got nostalgia right in the film as well. So yeah, yeah, lostage is a crazy thing, man, you know is, but a lot of times it can be done wrong. Boy, can just be like like it's definitely the sake of it. Yeah, I really enjoyed the surge in this song because it was still relevant to the plot, the story and added to it, added to the story rather than just being there for the sake of it. Yeah, like even when Norman says our I'm a bit of a scientist myself, like the whole cinema reactor, because we all remembered him saying it and it makes sense for you to say in that moment. And even little stuff that they get from mean culture in regards to there are the see like the sight of important thing or the little drop the chat to do with my men's back, McGuire's back, because at one point he was going to stop playing spider man. Yeah, because he has back. I think when he done the the landing scene, you heard the point that I might stop playing it. So it was I don't know, it's nice even that all you're amazing, because, yeah, they're amazing. Yeah, you're amazing. Yeah. So definitely the definitely hit the no stargio points, but I think they done it really, really well, and that's what just like that even like what maybe love the webs thing as well, to where, yeah, they brought back to them, because I remember you remembers. Does that come out of? Yeah, not. That did a really good job, man. Yeah, because it's like the definitely seeing people have these sort of discussions and then they just added it to the film, but not in a way that was cringey or force work. Yeah, it were blended him. Well, yeah, it was. Yeah, it just really feeling them well with a hope, as you said, the whole escape for the film. So yeah, yeah, it was good to hear. I think another bit that I really liked that a lot of people haven't really had many people speak about, but was the seeing spider man fighting doctor strange. I felt like that was done so well. Yes, that was really that was really orchestra. YEA and a visual stand ran. It was very, very well choreographs from the moment they left, they left the house. Yeah, all the way till they went to the ultimate universe. Yeah, Mirror Mirizona, I don't rewards, mild is Mirrord. Sorry. Yeah, yeah, and it wasn't even like you said, just just two visuals. It's even how this old house spot pull pocket is the way they won. It's like you just figured out out, like and says, this is just yourmetry, and then he just put doctor strange in a bundle and image to go away. So you know, there was those really I like that when they displaced Peter smarts as you always known that Peters actually think could be intelligently well anywhere on with any parts of the film. You didn't particularly enjoy this. This is funny because it's having this conversation with my boy, but after the foe, because he's writing a view for it, it were both trying to figure out what we didn't actually, what we disliked by the film. As like, I think I might need to Rewatch it for me to pick up the likes, because after left the film, obviously you come off the hat. Yeah, that's more fuel ever, but that's just in the moment. But the more I sat down and fort by it and I was comparing it to you in Finny Wall, because that's my favorite and that was my favorite mcu film. HMM, it's like these are the reasons why I generally think it's better in it. So, in regards to your question what I disliked about it, I'm not sure. I'm sure there's something, because no movies perfect, but I this was that moment. I cannot tell you to be this is the same with me. I think one need stills. I need some because I'm going to go watch again, like I said, next week. So I need to watch again, have another route watch, because right now I actually can't think of anything that I did not like about the film, and that's why I, like I said, I've got as my top one is in my top my I know, my top fee incu films are spying no way home. I've got winter soldier and infinitely will there. But my I think my only thing is, I mean, I I really like the film, but I think my...

...only feel, my only problem was at times I felt it was too predictable. Not as a problem with it, okay, but it was very, very to see what was going to happen a lot of times. Yeah, in terms of the kind of like story progression, there was nothing that I felt wasn't going to happen. Like I could almost, I can almost pan out exactly how things going to happen. It's not it's not really too desiment of the film. Yeah, but it's just not the most positive things for all viewers. Some people might like it that way. Yeah, others might not. It's just a preference thing. No, I think. I think there's definitely like a few points in the film where, for example, on these death I didn't expect that. I didn't expect that. You even when after she got hit she stood up. I think you're going to be fine, because which first got here for likench can't be done, but she gets up and moving along fine, and forwards carry on. But that's it, like even armies their firms. Let a few things that happened in the film that took much surprise, but overall, from beginning to end, you cannot understood the beat of the storyline and how it is going to essentially pan out, even with the wood. Normans betrow, I feel like you also that comment. Yeah, I feel like we also are coming. So so, yeah, it wasn't like for exam Norman's betray we saw coming, and doctor arc also help in spider man. Yeah, in that last scene I saw coming. Yeah, yeah, we need because we either. Yeah, think that, since see pure help with before. Yeah, HMM, but no, no, it was good. And then I think the only other thing that that kind of frustrated me. It's more of personal thing, but it was just the leniency that aren't Ma and Peter Parker had towards alone. Okay, we initially yeah, just the reluctancy to to get rid of him. Yeah, like I felt like obviously it's obvious to us, the viewers and and Whatso, but it kind of goes into the predictability kind of yeah, aspect of things where you know that if he doesn't do this, and because of his moral fair enough, he's got a very high moral compass, but if he doesn't do this, it's going to come back and buy him and he's going to really regret not doing this. And it felt very very obvious that this is, I was going to happen and like a lot of the thought process behind whiy things are being done and his aunt may saying we have to help people, Blah, blah, blah, and not taken into account after everything that's happened in infinity, one endgame that what happens in Universe is is very, very important and sometimes something is just need to be done. Yeah, yeah, I felt like that was a little bit of a negative. I hear it, but I think, I think, maybe because of everything that happened, that might be art May. What was source? Third, in regards to having to help people with everything that the universe is going through, like his protot to help each other and something, just to pick up on what you said, was a scene with Dr Strange and pop parker where I remember being what doctor strange says, but when you want to get rid of this people and the villains and a peer park and if you did that, they're going to die in it. And then something on the land of sings said that if I I'm warning winning to sacrifice a few life to save the whole world, inn it was something has larned. And then, I'm not sure if this was intentional, but then that's kind of of what finals was trying to do in regards to shout, to get rid of whole universe to save the other half. Is that sacrificeing x amount of people? It's okay as long as you save x amount of people. And and I get why enough. Again, I'm not sure if this intentional. Maybe they try to use that as reason as to where people are got when allowed that, the literally foot of finals lost. Half of the world got got got rid of, all got bleeped just because the other half the universe got saved. So how is that different from you trying to get rid of even smaller numbers? But you're trying to get rid of O or essentially send people to the deaths just to save a world when they could be of our other roots in regards to doing it. So I can't I kind of get it. I kind of get why you whistle stern in regards to I have to help them, and especially on the back of what on me says to him. Definitely, definitely, to an extent, I completely agree that. I think my thing with with Peter as a character, the way he was written, it is obviously his character but he doesn't always assess the consequence of his actions. Yeah, and he doesn't really think about where things will lead to if you make certain decisions. You know, for example, obviously we have him not getting rid of him not getting rid of the villains and send them back to the universe. Is To die, which obviously letter maze. Death aren't maze. Last thing, one of the last thing she said to him was not to you know, essentially not not verbating, but like not to be angry or villain her so whatever. Like both of them reverencings. But even...

...with that being said, he still weren't very, very emotional and tried to kill the Green Goblin. The other thing was obviously with the fact that, because his friends didn't get into college, he was trying to cast a spell to effect that the whole world and the whole unit. It's like, no, sure, you're not really understanding the the grat the consequences. Yeah, you know, you're not understand the consequences of the things you're doing. Fair enough, your friends might not go and got into their colleges. I respect of colleges because of you, but sometimes in life things happen and you just have to deal with it, and I think that's one thing Peter Parker as a character, he's needs to understand. That's what he's often really a I think that he's really had to learn. He's let the he's learn the Gon Schoens a bit more. Mother hard we because for me it's like you're you're trying to go back and it raised he didn't even talk to him memories because of a college of mission. But then you did even think to go and actually talked to some. I'm even thinking, like you didn't really think about doing that for your mum when she died, but going back in time and stuff, I don't know. But anyway, he's a flowes, he's a floor character, but that's I guess that's intentional. Yeah, and again went back to watching the saying like you literally just a child. You make childish decisions, and I think essentially that's what it board down to. Know, him being stupid, just in BECA this eat immature the kids, even stranger himself, just naive. But yeah, I keep forgetting you're still just a kid. That's what is. Yeah, you still let you know be you. HAS GROWN UP. A lot growing up to do still. So let's just thinks like that. For example, as you said, not really like the consequence of your actions. Because what did this happened until the thim? Yeah, tried to talk to the admissions. Yeah, in the first place, what would you guys make the film I done? HMM, here's a thing, right, I think it's a really, really good film for what it I think you have to take context into consideration, the genre of the film, the type of film. Yes, yeah, it's not my favorite movie of all time. Yes, and obviously, if I'M gonna if I'm going to take ten as essentially my favorite move of all time, then I can't give spider man ten. It doesn't really make much sense, but it's up there. It's like, it's really really it's a really, really good movie. I probably, as a cinematic experience and everything considered, give it like a, like a nine. Yeah, I give it like a nine out of ten. Yeah, to show US was and they give it anyway in Lee out ten as well. If I don't really I don't even know what I consider ten really for my film, but for myself. But yeah, I think, and I'm thinking as well as a comp also as a comic book film as well, and itself. Yeah, I'm probably going to be ranking is right there, up there with the best of that. If any condo films that you can think of really nice? Yeah, it's definitely on there. So yeah, even to your point, considering the genres, like I would give a nine. I then I'm thinking about other films that I will give a nine who, I think, or considerably better than this. That's the thing. But again it's completely different genres and those are gendres that I appreciate in like a lot more. M essentially, like superhero films might be like one of my least favorite genres or the world at some point one of my least favorite genres. But this, spite the many regards it compared to other superhero films, there's not does not many. To be personal, they can see is better than this. Won't as it as a superhero film. Obviously I can't like recency biases there, but as a as a superhero him in its own right, it's easily, I think I said before that easy, my top three. Easily. Yeah, yes, yes, definitely, probably my top two. Yeah, well, easily in my easily my top three. And so it. With respect to superhero movies. It would be for me quite out the quite comfort comes company saying that this is a ten as a movie generally. Yeah, bit different. Yeah, a bit different in fact, if I'm being really, really honest, as a movie on its own, probably about an eight. Yeah, high seven probably. Like. Yeah, yeah, like a high seven, eight, like you said. Same with me. It's not that I don't like superhero movies, but generally they don't tend to be the best, the best in terms of narrative and storyline and all sorts. And I have a similar sentiment with horror movies and I rate horror movies usually as horror movies. When it comes to the majority, even my favorite horror movies of all time probably round out about an eight. You know, most German. So yeah, I think...

...definitely consenervation of the genre and what the film is trying to convey please a big part in the raging. Like if you advertise again, like there's a lot of horror films. Yeah, that to me are just funny to me. Yeah, like I'm literally laughing, but I don't think it is intentional. Yeah, it's so fund the funny. Yeah, funny. If I had the same type of comedy or same type of level laughter in a comedy film I will really highly, but you can't. You can't advertise a horror film. Give me your horror film and I feel no. So horror you just just comment. Feel that you don't feel the threat, you don't feel the you know, the dread. Yeah, you just did. The rain will never be high because I'm reading you as a horror film, even as a film in generals. Like this is not what the director, all right, I was trying to convey. So it's not necessarily it's not like this is a difference between a good film in a film that you like. Like. I think we need to work. We need took about good and bad films. Is your most you think about critique and I feel like you need to think about a lot of other stuff off that you may not consider in general, like if I just watching something to enjoy or I like this from some writting it this, but if I'm saying that this is a good things, a lot of films that I don't like that are still good films. You so consider the yeah, thanks. For example, it Skilling example to my friend yesterday saying that, for example, wrong comes, I don't care for wrong coom films in it. And the reason why because what I like about films like I like mystery, I like I don't know, I like plot twist, I like law and Excel et ceter and you won't get that from wrong calm, but that's okay. Like wrong comp a very predictable from the beginning to end, you know what's going to happen. It's literally just use you about two characters and some of the side casts, so on and so forth. It's not it doesn't really expand on anything. You won't get great law, so on and so forth. That's not necessary what I enjoy in films, however, I can't watch a wrong calm. It has good characters, has has good romance, has good comedy, songs forth. I for me to come out and say that was a bad film, because not what I enjoy. You can still rate that a eight or nine. It might not be my level joinment, but it takes the boxes of what a wrong COMP is meant to be and again, and I think that's just a difference win not just me but every in general regards to knowing the difference between something that you like is something they can class good or bad. I mean that's really important. Actually. I think that's really important. Similar sentiments, there's sometimes where I'm I'm not a fan of rum comes generally, but I've watched wrung comes and I've enjoyed some of them. Yeah, like there's some films that they literally the the genres are just almost incompatible with me. But I've watched and I've just ex I've enjoyed as an experience. Now I could easily say I write this film, it doesn't have there the stories, there's predictable characters, blah, blah. Acting isn't that great, but I enjoyed it as an experience. Yeah, and sometimes that's why reviewing is not always it's not always needed, for your most part, when it comes to certain context. If you're reviewing it as a you know, with every one came or comedy or whatever, that's fine, but you have to I feel like you need certain parameters in order to define it and to review it, because otherwise, if you're just reviewing everything on the same umbrella, yeah, there's going to be there's going to be a bias of call, it's going to be things that are missing that they just traditionally not there. You're going to get plot twists in. Not Going to get major plot twisting in wrong comes. Yeah, you're going to get. No, you're not going to get like deep rich characters and comedies and all sorts, like it's just it just doesn't really happen. Yeah, like, I don't think review should be hud plan subjective. That's basically but opinion, there's definitely tick boxes that that is needed. Yes, cousin, when you're reviewing something, whether you enjoy our is completely irrelevance. On the the same way you'd review a game like, for example, if you're you're you're reviewing certain games, you're going to take into consideration storyline. Yeah, if you're playing a racing game with most on. Yeah, how many racing games I've got storylines like and then to use that as a measuristic for so to use storyline as a parameter to review just wouldn't make sense across the board for all games. Yeah, talk about Games. What Games day? Who've played this year from this year they've really really enjoyed here? For me, I'm sorry to think, there's been a few games. I think. I think for me it's a weird one because I feel like I haven't played as many games as I usually would. Yeah, and even the Games have played, I haven't played into extreme extents, but off the top of my head, the Games that I've enjoyed the most this year. Maybe shift. They will come out this year, but actually one of them technically didn't, but I think one one of them, sky would sword HD. Oh, yeah, so it's obviously a remake of two thousand...

...and eleven. We game. Yeah, so, yeah, but it was really refreshing playing it because it was one of those older games where I did it really end up playing it much at that period of time. In Two Thousand and eleven I was quite into the cool of duty multiplayer kind of aspect of things, and so when you're, especially when you're playing a lot multiplayer games, it's a playing single player Games is very becomes very difficult because it feels like, for example, fun playing street fire. It's like I should be spending time practicing to get better in this game, yeah, and not just playing some random wherever game. So it's quite refreshing to have the time to actually sit down and play this game thing all. You know what, this is actually quite pretty cool. This, this holds up quite well. I remember this, or they change this to change that. I like the story, I like a lot of the mechanics, I like the way it looked. So yeah, that was a fun game. The other one that I've seen get mixed reviews, but I did quite enjoy as far crist six. Okay, okay, so I played fi crisix on pc and hadn't played a fucker game properly and quite a long time. But it was it was pretty good. It was pretty good. It really felt like I know it's set a certain South America and just trying to liberate a country. So it was really cool having like an open world, first person shoot where you're going around your liberating certain strongholds. You're, you know, getting new weapons, new abilities. It's an open world game, so it's like and first first person open world shooters. I'm not very, very common. I think far Christ probably the most famous of them all, but just being able to do things in different ways, being able to, you know, stealth kill or go in all guns, blaze in, recruit pets, recruit other other people that you've helped liberate and help rescue all sorts. So that was a good game and I think the last one, I'd say probably metroid. Yes, metroid, much metro, can going this? Yeah, Maddy, much oble. Okay, I streamed, I did. Yeah, I think I streamed it off munch. They and I played for like yeah, I think metroid dread was. It is a really unfinished it, but it's and I will do. It's a really, really fun experience. It harks back to the halt, the old, the other metroid games on the D plane. It's a teriously quite difficult there's a lot of exploration, there's a lot of going back and tracking and backtracking your going and seeing what you can do with your new abilities, open new new doors, new directions. But yeah, it's just fun that you just feel like a very, very fun arcade experience. And I remember seeing a review somewhere review it and saying like it's been a long time since they've got a game. They've played it, they've enjoyed it and that's it. No funny updates, no patches, no real major changes. The game is finished. Play it start to finish. You can go back if you like, but that's it. Yeah, and in this modern age games are being put out fifty percent completely yeah, and then their backtracking afterwards. I'd say there's my free I feel like I can't really played much this year. Okay, yeah, and me I play that should not paid a lot of games this year. Chris is already said. Mature hed read the year. I that game, fantastic game. Like I said, as Chris said, is going back, gone back to the roots of the rich and the maturely Venia Games. I said, a lot of backtracking, going back and forth, and I've had I did struggle with a few of the bosses on that game. I can remember. It's just learning the patterns of those bosses and just and all the different bilities. And they've gotten this maturely dread loved it up. I'm I may go back to because I want to try and speed on it, trying because I want to try and get all the different unlockables at the end. It's because I did the hundred percent play through. Yeah, and that's a great game. Another game tells of her eyes. I'm I wouldn't say we got friends. Things off our friend high tea. He's the Jlfug Guy. I like my jail, I like my glfuge's myself, but he is the also Cheffugi Guy. But Yeah, tells of our eyes. This one was like they I think they just went back with the tells form, with our their battle system and just rebramped it and it really paid off. Well. The graphics overhaul looks really good in the next Gen, but that game wasn't. It was a great play. The story was okay, it's not. I would say it's just an amazing stories just you know, it's all right. But I think the main draw, the main appeal, is just the way they've read. They revamped the battle...

...system on the game and it really had me hooked and I'm going to do on platinum. That game. Love that. I played the hell of it as well. Too Fair. I think the mostly I've played is areful Jesus year. Too Fair, because now and I'm still playing, Shima got me tense a five. HMM. This is my first and Shimom got me tense agay much, I really. Yeah, I've never played I've never played any others. I've just played the spinoff and I was only person of five and percent five rule. Yeah, I've actually played on. I speen to Tuch about it. I played them Shimak a tense say if it was devil survivor on the internal dasis ages ago, and this is before I knew it was like a really big thing. I just saw it and had a pretty good ring at the time when it was like an average of about eighty something. Yeah, this is really good and let me, let me, let me buy it. It's a board. I played and it was really, really, if I'm very, very difficult game. Yeah, but it's really, really fun. I maself money so Ari would have the whips whisps. Yeah, that came out at the end of the last year, but only side playing it this year when I got my xbox. Literally one of the Best Games I've ever played. Did you platform, on which I guess I haven't played many from my life. If I did, it was when I was a lot younger, but because I played ai, it made me wanted to play more with them. Yeah, okay, what we're good? Yeah, or he was generally like Queen and Jo wble. I did a hundred percent completion on it and then not downe completed it on hard mode, the hardest model was and now I want to speed run it. Yeah, there's a I think after complete it within four hours from beginning to end, isn't like a deathless runners. Well, yeah, just want one, but dying once. I generally don't know I'm going to do it. Like I'm obviously have to putting the ages more to complete. Yeah, but I don't know how I'm going to do that one. Eventually, I want to get every single complete, every single achievement. But I particular game that I heard the butt, because I really I like watching some of these on youtube where they do like, for example, hardest different are this, like I think they will do a thing. was maybe what culture I like. There's anyway. I think they'll do ones where you have to do the hardest, maybe like definitely defense runs or something. They put all he's one in there really apparently is difficult, so that this is running worry. Yeah, that's it. I've heard of her and I don't know how anyone has ever done it. Like I've played it. When I first played it wasn't on hard. It's that medium and you would die in the most ridiculous is. I'm not saying that the game is all a difficult but you would die in the most ridiculous way sometimes. So I eventually I get to it. It's definitely some crazy how people do it. Like I was watching was actually watching the other day. I company Youtube his name, but he did. I he played Secura. So that's why. Definitely wrong. Not, no, not definitis it. Did it completely blindfolded. Oh Oh wow, bl voltage as he never played it before. No, no, no, as in he was blind, little black food is so what came was this secure? How did he do that? I have no idea. No, this is the thing with speed Er, and the thing is Securo is a very difficult game, extremely difficult. It's a soul born game. It's like a yeah, it's from free from Games. Yeah, so I just I don't know how people do this, this stuff. I follows madness. I've seen before do things that complete demon souls in twenty minutes. Yeah, it's just like it doesn't make any sense how these people do it. But you just watching all how they managed, because they'd literally don't analyze the game as much as possible. One were going to the FRIS yeah, exactly to a lot of people. Probably maybe look at day of minding and stuff and look at the frame day of all the enemies, E. Sech. You just don't know exactly what to do with part, and then it's mad help I learn ye, it's crazy. I remember the first time. This was years back. I think I must have been this is like maybe that two thousand and six when I really saw the speed running community and I thought it's just a little nice thing. I didn't think it was anything big. I see in some forums. I remember game facts for him. Yeah, also see a couple reports on Kaitaku and see videos on Youtube, but I never really saw anything major. And as time went on I was seeing how big speed running really really is. If you watch a lot of the speed running videos. They Got Milli is a views of games from games that came out in the S, for example, that some of the big ones. Supermo sixty four, gold and I still got miracle. They still do a lot of speed running from Maracock Corsu. Yeah, courses, Zels time, you got games, Games from the playstation one. You're super mature it as world. Even go to snare's, the people still speed run Super Matu Rood yeah as well. For you the ones, the ones are really really kind of caught my attention, the most worthy golden eye and sixty for one, and the supermaritancy for one. And the reason why? Because the Golden I one for example, often those which,...

...course, was it that they had remember the often, I think there's something you try to explode, maybe, like they always explain and they always think it always exploit in these gays. But like the even even that the little since you do, like sech running, running diagonally to cut frames and, yeah, jumping this and killing yourself here so you can end up and spawn somewhere else. And it's just really, really crazy the way they do it. Yeah, with the Super Mario Sixty four, back the backwoods long job. Yeah, that what does. There's the back was long jump, but then there's also I can't remember which stage it's on. It's one in one of the water stages where I think someone offered a couple grand right to replicate something that was done in a speed run. Okay, so I think someone did perform the move, essentially, and super sixty four by accident, I can off chance. And the thing with these, the things of these accidents happen in speed runs, is that their opportunities to cut time all the time and break world records. So someone's done it by accident and he's essentially put out a bounty for anyone who can. You can legitly replicate the same thing that was done and people literally, like hundreds of people, literally just putting in work to try and find out, looking at frame data, analyze in the code of the game all sorts. Is Crazy stufful to see Maria sixty four, I'll send you a link. Yeah, she's a space it's so crazy. A little little things that they look at with Zelda, another's older one they have. There's like a glitch where in the lost words where it's like you use target and then you do like a backflip. Yeah, and basically it's like the game thinks that God holding something in your hand, but you kind of trip the game into thinking that. You chip the game into thinking that you are, but you're not, and then you manage to go through certain areas which you're not actually permitted to go through. It's crazy. Yeah, I'm even I'm even thinking because I think I've watched that longer, maybe a few months ago. Ran We will seeing like a video of talking about a record on Mare, on maracle sixty four. Things, for example, toes turn bike, like how will the speed records from any years? And then must be will finding literally, like he said, x backs and finding new technique and as people trying to replicate that technique and shave off the minimal like Nanos at such of the Times, and you don't shaving up bigger times. It's just I don't know if you remember this one. Actually there was a donkey Kong one. So someone held a Guinness World Record for Donkey Kong. So the original Donkey Kong game with you, with Mario and the barrels. You might you might have seen it one where Mario's, you know, jump my gum and drumming absolutely near pull in. So there's like a those like a whole conspiracy behind it because they felt that the person who made the record faked it, and I was a massive, massive thing. The Guy was arcade owner and it was like a big as I an one hour documentary, basically going into in all sorts, and eventually he's in the end. His record got scrapped and the person who rightfully did do the the speed run actually got their name in the world records. But it was crazy. Also durke runner did Vik it. Yeah, okay, that's my there's loads of instances of people, you know, cheating on speed round, but the speed right community is crazy, like doing things like right, playing, playing Japanese versions of the game because the text moves faster. Yeah, things, little things as things makes they make difference. Think that that's why it's that's why sometimes I have these do sepparate. They have separate speed running times because of the different depending on the video game you have. Example it, like you said, maybe a power version or US, also COMEM in us. Yes, power and intense NTSC etc. Or was in the game, and they make and even then those that may be the different version of those power games. It's that even little things, clock speeds and all sorts, all sorts of little issues. But anyways, that's I think that that's a really good part of Retro Gaming. That keeps it relevant today. Yeah, because these games have been gone on. I mean, how how old is married? Six before now, Mary, since you for like twenty, twenty, twenty four years old. Yeah, twenty four years old, Twenty Five, twenty five, tennis, it's going to be seven. Isn't like Nice? Six, twenty five years old. Actually, yes, twenty five year bloody. Yeah, and it's still going. But the thing is modern day gaming, this this whole especially pandemic is caused so many problems of gaming. I think the biggest issue I've seen is that most of us, we will have next Gen consoles. Right, yeah, yeah, they're barely any real next GEN games. There's been any real next you really struggled. Most of the Games that we have are, you know, multi platform, multi platform.

We are crossiest generation. Yeah, which can be fine and it's happened in generations period, but not to sixten. Literally we're over a year into the console's launch. I think the psfive has like how many? How many psfive real psfive? Can only probably name on one one hand. Yeah, if that in a whole year. Wretch, wretch and clank. The demon souls actually found em in souls. Yeah, and we might have the directors cut of death stranding. Yeah, that's the problem. Is that the right? I'm John Games. Not. Not. Not. Actually, there's not really a means. If we made his returnal be no returns journals and PR folio. There's been anyway. And the thing is it's just it's I don't know it. Because of Covid we don't know how long it is going to be before we really get to see the limits of where these Games are pushed to, where you have where your coding for the previous generation. It always a limits what you can do. Yeah, always just a quality of the game is always literally have to consider, as you said, for the last Jan architecture and stuff, and you can't really utilize the new Jenknocketis coup capabilities, even like horizons are a dormantch comes out in as. That's still going to cross platform. Yeah, got of was going to be cross platform as well. Do you think that once everything that I that dies down, Gonos, when that will be, there's going to be a surge in regards to new Gent Games be read? I think it's there. It's just I don't I don't know about surge, but I think it's still going to be gradual, that it will have to be gradual, and the reason is because it bores down to the fact that most people still can't get their hands on the next Gen consoles. Yeah, yeah, and the probably won't be like that too. It's still going to be a probably like that. Whenever two thousand and twenty two, production will never boom. It always be gradual, and so they'll need to make the the nexting consoles. Then they need to be available to market. Then people have to have to actually buy these consoles before they can move on and say all right, now we have enough people and we can, you know, scrap these games. And because if you look at most other consoles, like the pers three, for example, how long did the PSRE lifestyle did they start making games for the previous generation like they were completely different? I mean they tried with a couple quite call of duty games, but after while they just scrap them and they just said yeah, psree, we're not really producing games. Will make. Will make a couple fee for games and a couple football games, because a lot of people that that play those games. I don't really care about consoles. But other than that, yeah, but who knows, man, the quality and and thing is even the quality of the Games that are coming out now. They just not good. Look at battlefield. Battlefield about field came out of Buckeyes. Yeah, but who didue? Gods? Not so well actually. Yeah, and guy's not doing well, and too previous generations. I've been seeing a lot of such in UK is not ban guard's not really done well. A lot it's not really cool and they've been teasing a new war zone map for like a year and a bit it's come out and it's a complete buggy. I seen lords of clips in videos. We will just complains. Buggy, buggy man. Yes, and people have been anticipating this for so long. Talking about sorry, talking about your disappointments in regards to recent games. What would you see is the biggest disappointment in a parshial and you can't mentioned souber punk. I forgot about some funky though. Actually know. I mean, I've seen it. This isn't some funk still. They in my room. I just not touched it after that. They've been next year update. It's going to be out and sometime next year, I think, for that. But year, this year, I think. I think it's I'm torn between two. On a personal level, courage has been a very big disappointment for me and I have to kind of have to lump in and battle filled in with as well. But I had better expectations for college. I felt like they had enough time. They've got all the people they've there's so many content creators. Essentially are telling telling activision blizard how they can improve this game, the kind of things that people have problems with, the things that should be removed, things, things that should be added, and I feel like they haven't really done that. They haven't tested it well enough. They so there's that. The one that I feel is most objectively a disappointment is the GTA trilogy. HMM, that's a good shots. So the thing with the Guta trilogy is that it's a it's a it's a remaster. Is that real? Yeah, yeah, a remaster. It makes it makes it worse. If, as a remark, it's with me, is we make. I'm sure supposed to be remaster now makes it worse. As a nice, it wasn't really.

Yeah, it makes I think. I think, I hope to remake and re master. Sorry, yeah, it's a remaster here. It was a really that you literally scrapped. The whole thing is over again. We must you know. But the thing, the thing with the reason why that's such a big disappointment is that those three games are beloved to so many people. Yeah, most people grew up playing at least one of them. Yet very, very high, high extent, like and to see it the way it's been produced, it's it's laughable. It looks terrible. Okay, it's Buggy, and the thing is like rock star. Have no excuses. They've made so much money. Yeah, they make me take the biking that game to say five came out. Oh my God, what? Two hundred and thirteen? Yeah, two thousand and fourteen. They're stretching that game across very is not any generations came out. It's two thousand and thirteen. You know, to do right now. You see, I keep seeing getting it when I'm watching Youtube. They keep doing the ads get free. A million dollars, you know, added on. See your GT online character in anticipation for GT five. Of the fears right, and I think it is you're now teasing a in that came out in two thousand and thirteen. UNT A new under the new generation of consoles. It's just his many generational three generations acts. It's not. It's impressive and embarrassing. Is that? You know? When it comes up, I'm sure it's going to be twenty two. That's basically ye s since come out. It's impressive as a business model. B It's embarrassing if your love are games. It's a burs and especially if you're friend of Duch's just a not because you just see rock star to most take to in it as well. Just milk. There trying to milk every Michael transacting such off dut online to get us because they that's a huge money making. It's just really they just it's made them just look concentrating making maybe doing a new actually, because people in a new detail wants Guta six and you're they're doing, then you're doing enough off in. They're doing an update though, to be firving with Dr Jory or something. Then Franklin and from Duchi fire. But I think one thing I've definitely noticed is the fact that like this is probably the best time to play older games and I feel like there's so many people who should just give back older games of chance and not telling you how to play them. Know, I know some people play through emulation. EMULATIONS illegal if you haven't actually got a copy of the game, but it's legal for Gor copy to gain if you have a copy of the game. Yet you got a copy of the Games legally, you can. You can emulate a game that you you own. It's fine, okay, but you should own it. Not Everyone owns it. I don't speak for everyone, but there's ways to play Retro Games with. Speak to every's brother. Yes, weet Eric's brother, Eric probably sort you out face what people you can get like a playstation three with every single playstation three game on it, every single playstation two games is one game on it. Yeah, in a high drive. It has. I've seen people with it the same thing. I think Maximilian Dude, he's got the snares one, okay, but yeah, I really feel like people should give older games of chance. They usually show in duration and they kind of give you a good kind of understanding of where games were and why certain games are the where they are now, and that's how they age so well. It's actually you look at games like Games, a revolutionized game in you know, like super may sixty four, golden eye. You Look at Games that resident evil for a reason, revolution ie gaming, at games that strew fighter to also, yeah, that's still most a steeper to come back on the switch January. But the wolves up burdon jumping chat. Yeah, it's championship is this year is hmm. It was the ultimate. Can remember they got the street flankers of this game, but ultra turbo it is. If you told me as fifty, I believe you've definitely I believe you are anyways. ANIME and Manga will starf anime first, but what has been your favorite anime or taxi? The yeah, yeah, now wanna give us a brief other view of okay, our taxi essentially is slice of a life mystery drama which looks at a taxi driver in Japan and there's like lords of side characters around, but somehow all these side characters are connected to this one taxi driver for one reason or another. In front door whole show. It starts off with a more murder, essentially, not actually not murder, sorry, somebody's got missing, something's going missing, presumed to...

...be dead, and then throughout the whole show, like we're just unraveling this particular mystery which is essentially linked to so many different type of mysteries that happened in the show, and it just really well written and you in gives you a full attention. It's is dialog heavy, if very dialog Ay so heavy, and obviously you know don't watching dub so what's this? You're going to spend like quite a lot of time analyze in everything that everyone's saying, because there's something kidding in a lot of the conversation that had and it's a lot more reveals that happened, but is literally, personally, one of the best enemies I've ever watched ever, ever, easily the best enemy of the year for me. I'm another another animated really giet enjoyed this year is my Semipa is annoying, which is a work office slash of Life Rom Com. If you, if anybody's, ever watch Wa Tokoy, similar vibes to Water Koi, which is a really enjoyable fun one enemy and obviously the one piece animy of one or just been. I want to be amazing, absolutely brilliant net next year. Next year one piece animal is going to be amazine. Yeah, fair, I think I've not really been watching. I've watched a bit of I did watch a bit of the attack on Titan Pot. Well, was it the fuck poeas part one? Yeah, I watched that TOFA. I wanted to see animad really. Yeah, most of the time when I watch animy all these days is just I want to watch that. Parts of Manga been reading an animade to be fair, so ivingt that. I've been so slacker enemy. So I watched that also, one piece at one, because I'm on it. One piece, the one ark has been so beautifully animated, but absolutely beautiful. You animde like I can't watching that because it's just the way that is translated so well and there's going to be so much. I can't wait for next year, as money said, because to see some fights that we've been seeing. Yeah, I'm going to be blown away and I can't wait. Even watched the star making of of what to bit right here and I'm trying to let it build up a bit more because we've shot. Luckily, as Shaw mckeing, I've been waiting to read. Well, watch it because it's going to actually not diverting this time and actually just keep on. You know, respect to the manger, keep keep going that direction for that, because I do remember the anime completely swapped off the original anime for the man C I think, because if the catch up will maybe over to I can't remember, but Um, yeah, that's Im. I've not really watched much. It's Morey reading anyway these days. I think with me the best ones I've probably seen Baki the grappler. Okay, well, it's called, is it Bucky Hanma this season? I don't it might be called back a hand of the season, but that was really good. Bucky is like a very, very in fact, it actually links with the other anyway that I really like the season, which is Jojo's plot. Six. Yeah, yeah, and the thing is, the funny thing about bucking and Joge's is that I feel like they're so similar. Okay, but I feel like Bucky is just a super masculine version of Jojo's based on combat, in terms of just the the the stylistic choices, the animation, the way the characters present themselves in the storyline, where's Jo Joe's is a lot more upbe a bit more metrosexual kind of HMM. But yeah, bark is essentially a show quite a simple premise, where there's a boy who is socially wants to be the best martial artist in the world. Is father currently is the best martial artist or the strongest man in the world. He's a bit of a villain in himself. I'd compare the relationship so like an exaggerated version of the Jew turn trunks o. So Bark. He's always working, walking in his dad shadow and he's trying to he defeats, he tries to fight all opponents in front of him. One thing about about Barkie that's quite interesting is that there's a lot of there's a lot of references to real life people. So like in the late season you have kind of like a knockoff version of Michael Mike Tyson. You have George Bush and Reagan. You have things like one of the one of the major characters in the storyline is based on a body boarder called soace Sergeo Lever. Okay, like, there's just a lot of references to real life stuff. Rule out places too often. A watch a couple of is this that is on Netflix? It's on yeah, yeah,...

...and then Joe Joe's part six, which I ended up binging in a single day. I really enjoyed that. I always enjoy joy JOE's. It's just it's fun, it's exciting. You're not really I don't really find looking into laws that important with it and deep I feel like it's quite a lot of it is very, very face value and just pure entertainment. But it almost comes across this episodic it reminds me a lot of TV shows I used to Wat when I was younger, where you might not watch every order but you'd still kind of have an understanding of what's going on and it's fun, like there's new enemies every episode and yeah, it's just it's just a really good show. I do think Georgia in general is very episode, especially since season or part free. But three, four, five in six, I haven't read among us on off an enemy, very episodic and I really appreciate I lie there. I don't think there's any other showing that could do do what Georgia does and for me, for it still be enjoyable. It's absolutely wacky, again, very fun and strange to your very to an extent, but it works. It works ill orgia resort. It gets a wave a lot of stuff that no other enemy or Manga could simply simply based on just how it presents itself exactly. Yeah, there's this. Still there's quite a few other enemies that people have mentioned this year. Cormon, but there's a singing want protagonist, blue hair, comember, name, but happen, idea. But appermans meant to be really good. I watched that first few episodes but I'm pretty forgot the name. We get the name of it. Yeah, what about a mango? Where you guys been reading? Oh, to be honest, I feel like I finally kind of resurrected my ability to read Manga. Agun lets you go, and it's funny how like a simple thing can that. You just have you drive off a cliff. When it comes to manger, my Manga at died on me stually, okay, stopped working and we can use because I heard that was more enough. I remember now, but it basically made Manga rock or something. But basically I forgot which animals reading. I forgot chapter as I was on. That's the problem. You have your bookmarks on that, Yeppen, because you can't get yet known one. You get any when you don't remember. I keep that's how I've lost anger as well. Yeah, but we've been reading quite a few things. The stuff I've been reading my own, a lot of the shown in so my hero academia, which has been really, really good so far. Yeah, I like a lot turn it's been taking. Yet jutsu Kuis in one piece, obviously, but then I've also been reading a few, a few like shorts. We've been reading the stuff with Manga Club. So what was the first thing we read? Well, read Pluto, Red Pluto, smashed, smashed, fire punch, fire punch, flipping off are punch, wells read. There's some stuff is this cats couple, but I mean fire punch is anice. IS TO SCOUT HOW TO SCOUTER? Yeah, never can five points on interesting. Fire Punch was interesting. It was. It just has the weirdest ending of all time. I feel like it just got a bit ridiculous after a while. It's not anything is as much as I'm not the biggest fan of it, I wouldn't up people not to read it. Yeah, I want to talk people not to read it, but I wouldn't recommend it to people even I would only recommended to somebody that really enjoys fujimoto's work. Yeah, Oh, and I had chainsaw man this year as well. Yes, same, so, yeah, so changed some man. Yeah, that is probably the best thing of red this year. Actually. Yeah, I really enjoyed I really enjoyed Wiman about. Someone asked me what's was Joe Joe's about, and I was like just about to start and I was like just wash the trailer, watch the first episode, because even if you watch the first episode's training, you're gonna have a clue. You know that. I'm one of those shows you have to just have to work which side. Give someone else, someone else worth worth the read. Someone ask me what's context hunter about? Yeah, okay, it's really hard time. So it's hard because it starts off one way and then you get a cough and completely changes the tone of of what hunter hunter is changed. Its plea takes a complete UN yeah, is there anything like? Quite relatively unique he does. Of what I've read. I've come back to our side of Manga, specifically...

Manga Blue Giant, which is essentially isn't it? Yeah, the saxophone. I've never read a music mango and I don't think of watch in music enemy a plot from when I was mentioned earlier. Right, right, so this about a high school kid that really enjoys sex, jazz, really enjoys a jazz wants to be a saxophone artist. Even is you that just seeing his journey, feeling throughout. But the art for it's absolutely brilliant, like I never knew someone could display the sound of music so well. It just looks great. I definitely recommend it to anybody that wants something to read. I have the physical copies and it's worth it and I enjoy but lacks obviously enjoyed by mango, but Manga that we great artwork. The sorryn't have to be with that. Great for me. If it's got great outwork is it's worth the money to me. How about you guys? The one I started, I haven't really had anyone talk about his choching x. So it's written by Shida Sui Shida. Okay, yeah, I try Goo, yeah, and it does feel quite similar. Okay, I think there's they live in a world where there's a type of people called children who have like special, extraordinary, bit extraordinary abilities. Flames be power, is right. It's a lot stranger than that. Very very weird abilities and a lot of the characters are very, very grotesque looking. But it might as a lot of if you're a fan of Tokyo go, I'd takes another brainer to start it. The main character does kind of remember. Why me of Cannicky, a bit more subdued than even he was. But yeah, it's quite early on. It only started, I'm pretty sure I started even late last year, this year, but it looks it looks okay so far. I won't say I've really got any I can't think of anyone's really unique. One of US really been reading was, I think was even this one called it's I think I'm moving trying to look at it. It's this a random when I saw what I was looking through, the hero who seeks revenge and so so it's so it's dominated darkness. So it's basic about our hero, hope, the feat deemon king, but then was really portrayed by the whole country and I'm execute on the false pretense. Is Basically certain set up after etc. Thinkers of ride by. I think it was all right by exactly. But he was brought back and I has a power of buttons. He's gone on the Mada revenge to basically right right. So it's just really a bloody to revenge and the way he's carried out some of his renders, it it gets is very dark. But I've been enjoying it. Actually, to be fair, it's twisting some parts and you see, it really goes around and show US basically the darkness of that kingdom really inside and the way he's just the ways is carrying out his revenge. But I'll see. Yeah, but noice, it's an all right reader, just something picked up. Anyway. Let me coming out. Yes, you watched let's I'd be watched a bleached trailer no, I hate bitch at too. That's all. Why things shit. Have you finished a mango? I didn't finish it. When did he gouts on the mango? Was it off? Oh, really, love, I hate it. I've always hated it. Oh Shit. Yeah, what do you have, bleach? What what'd you get? Would you get to like it? I can't remember. Bro I stopped watching it in like two thousand and eight for the Oh, I didn't know. You didn't lively. I didn't know if that's what everyone I didn't like each yeah, because I thought we just cust him private, abny V, I do this like that. Really dislike. Did you finish your society? Know, Oh, you must have finished all society. So was say again, we happened? He goes to rescue really? Yeah, yeah, I think I think I've finished that wonderful bringock. So that was after Eisen but I went like a long afterward, decided, because it's think I finished right after, because I think bleach started two thousand and four. Yeah, no, Bichard, two thousand and one. The man got sting too, thousand and one. One animal started two thousand and I feel like Anima. My son started like two thousand freely. There's this new bleach coming out. Yeah, there's new beach coming out and excited, and I'm sure you guys are, which is gonna be fair. You know, it looks good. The animation looks clean on it. Even when I was gonna give it a chance, I was about to give it a chance again, and then everyone tells me, yeah, and it's shit. Yeah, I can't like that. Yeah, no chance. I feel like that the last water for bleach maybe worse than our retos. You know, it's funny. Then great injury. We talk. Yeah, after did you know?...

You know? So funny, though, because at the time I was reading. At the time I was watching and reading Narita. HMM, so this would have been mid two thousand. It felt like you had to pick a side. It wasn't like it's kind of like bleach on the rue, kind of like playstation, and next box was that beach on the Uto. Yeah, either like one or you like over, and it was like people generally didn't like each other in my school. If you like the other one, okay, so I might. I picked near O, I I start. I started with Naruto and Narrato is my thing, and we were like the majority of people my school and narrative fans. Bleach was like a lot of people say our bleaches copy in Arruto and this and that. I don't know what it was. I think the only thing I really liked about bleach was a was the opening, that first opening called of I like beaches openings. Other than that, I really and they'll some of the music. That was decent. Yeah, I remember pryme put that song in the chat and try to say no, that song was what door. So that Max it. I remember every would even back here. It was so bad, so bad, it's like we finded it with a song. I'M gonna get that song whack garbage, probably if I'm trying to fight, but he was on a looser battle. Imagine trying to say I'm trying to justify an ames got of good music and masses. So you pull out. If Max of bleach has good music, I don't know. Some understand it does. Understand it does, but to put a song that something doesn't. He does like us. He did like a sort of one of our friends and you, trying to prove a point, brings that was it's what what you know? One of our friends that likes to prove a when it brings up worth pictures of. That's exactly. That's exactly what else is new. And what else is new in two thousand and twenty two? To look, that looks good. Not I get in? Well, actually, I'll let you don't say. The first three months in gaming was my back. My battles will be locked because January. What cames out in January? Again, I'm trying to remember top of my head as let's let's let us run through some of the animals. OFF THEM CARE and John. But yeah, for the because if to remember. So we got quite a few. We've seen clips for what's the basketball animal? Have a completely dance slam, don't we've got a film coming out. We've got the bluelock football mangd that's been really popping over the past. She's just a cousin. Yeah, Jo, guys, and coming up we get justicus and film comes out in Japan on Christmas Eve of I'm going to get it in English. Lack months, months la or it's probably that summer time. We got one piece red film read coming out. Is might be really good. Reef piece in one piece is going to get anime next year. Really good mob cycle coming back, coming back, whilst there obviously more George's part six, the final part of attack on Titan, of the final season's a bunch of other stuff like this that I feel like two thousand and twenty two is going to be the best from the lineup. So we have is going to be the best year of enemy. And that's only the original enemies. No, that's only the enemies that have source material for somewhere else that's coming out. Like we can't even talk about the originals because we don't know what's coming out yet. You might even get Plu or animated, because it want to be anime Fuzzen and twenty, but obviously covid and delayed that, so might be getting it. It's funs did you think a plato? I really like it. I think I like that. I'm not. Wasn't sure about the end. It was a bit confusing. Was a bit confusion. I can't the end understand of you read it mom okay, there's the scene with javelin and a teddy like. It doesn't mean much to easy weird, but it just it just doesn't. It's just very it makes sense, but it understand the motivations understand how you got to that point, but I don't understand why that was needed at all. Like, I don't know why is this so? America just wake weird endings, weird just don't know how to end up. Just think anything out there like attack on time and the root or bleach Ursa ending was so bad. But I don't like the the notion that Naruto was all bad. No, no, but no, I don't even there's a notion that goes around in public. Probably know that the Ruto generally is just not a very good the ruse is is elite. It's literally origo. However, this exist. Yeah, let me get I even made the game. Came into my head because I was thinking January, because I got January. Your POKEMON arsious coming out. January, assious as every I can't pronounce whatever. Then February it's Horizon Forbidden West. Really looking for to that game because I played forbidden dooring this year actually, to be fair, right, amazing game. Forbidden, I say for Bidden born has a zero down. Yea, I played there doing this year and absolutely amazing...

...game, huge open world. I see why the comparisons win when they both came up south of the world. If they're both got, you got the forbidden West and broth the while to next year. HMM, not of blood the ear. They're both coming out a year with their sequels. Next year. Yeah, but February Forbidden West and also, a week after forbidden West comes out, elden rings of Yeld hold the ring comes out. But one thing, just mundering of Nintendo need to get their hat together Mon yeah, well, Game Lice just as a company. Oh yeah, facts. I don't know what they're playing at when it's whether it's censorship, pricing, games and releases, it's just like, what are you guys doing? The actually rats me regards the price, and that surows me. How they can keep the same price. Will the influx right? They game? I mean I go down in price. Never then is it yours? It's the reason. It's good. It's good for earlier doctors, guys. You by the Games early, but there's certain things that they do and it's not like again, being able to hold its values is fine with me. I don't really have a problem that. My issue is when it comes to things like the pricing of certain games being full priced. You know full well this is should not be able full price game intended. All the time you saw an emulated version of Super Mario, thos and stars. Yeah, that was that's cheeky. That one actually, look at that one. Was Cheeky. Full Price. Yeah, company aboard, Love Player for price. Or it's just that I played a little bit. And and the worst is that it was a timed release. Yeah, that's so. They made everyone phono into buying it. Yeah, it's just a horrible that was nasty. And then and then very add to consumer sometimes and it's adding sorts of injury. They've expanded the the online service are let me not talk. It's like that for poorly emulated titles. The pricing of the online service, for one, they don't have the worst online out of the big free. The fly far by farther when they clear at the worst and they're charging. But know is that? How much is it now? For? I can't. It is I don't know, for I'm not. I'm not doing even. Why am I playing? For these games and that it's poorly emulated as well. All you've done is giving us some name even people, incentive to go and emulate elsewhere. Yeah, that's all you've done. Then you'll get all in your you gain your Beau some of that. Literally, you can go and emulate the same games in better quality using things like Dolphin hd wide screen, and then you'll give it. You're making people paid this much for a short, small selection of games are emulated poorly than they are on the WII. Doesn't make any sense? I don't know. And anyways, they put out the controllers. So they put out the megage of controller did and controlling. Who can get them? I just not available. No, so doubt so. The way, it's just hard man price and for Redicuson was like sixty quid, fifty present on an issue, but a lot of people would want that as a wireless and sixty full controller. H Yeah, don't be usual. But yeah, the thing is they're still making money switch selling like mad. Still. I think it's just great. At this pier, when you had especially have a lot of other companies offering a lot of free services, playstation gives you three games every month. You got exact of the first of it. Okay, they have game pass. Everyone should be following xpom in March of footsteps to see the way they do their game pass. The Gate and was game pass over was what fifteen would a month is or something less than that. But the value for money is it's. It's because the amount of games you don't get on get game on past day one. Yeah, prob Hale. If I had next box to first one xbox, you had halo infinite. Now on day one the young game pass for three, three MS player free. Yeah, and it's not even that amount of games. Is the quality, like you said, the day one releases end the end of quality of the Games. That Mari was already one and two was a game was free. We got to K A certain point on game boss fee for on game box. I'm never I'm never spending money on I fi for game again my life ever. Wait for what twenty twenty two, twenty one like about wasn't twenty twenty two should be probably gone. It's gonna it's gonna end up on game pass, probably early next shot. And I've got two thousand and twenty one on the game past like I think it was like in January. That three for months, maybe me like February, but it's still got a single K. it's like lords of game and if it in the thing about is that it makes me want to play games even more so because I'm not risking spending x more money on a game that might not like you know. So funny. Funny thing is a lot of games that people play them game pass have been subsequently bought by the people playing them on game pass for price retail. Yes, afterwards. Yeah, because they want to keep these games. They want to actuallyly be like these guys have been able to try this game, but they want to keep these games forever. No facts. If they everything,...

I'm not much if the read or from game pass or not, but if they did, I wouldn't mind buying it because I know I would constantly play that game because I enjoy that much and and it's all and it also draws you in into one having that the reason I ever got the xbox because of the game pass and what they were trying to sold me with it. And it's worth everybody. It's worth opening, even if I play like for Games. So your money, because like it's as it's on the fifteen pound a month. That's it's your money. That's still all my money back, because games like both and now nick most games range now from like seventy yeah, for one game. So that's like probably that's about almost. Yeah, bit about to say four times elite around what you pay for game pass. anyways. Yeah, and out of those games that are see the pounds, how many them we still play them, since most later, like it's not often you buy a game and you still play let's. So that's the good thing my game pass. Like if they'd come off game pass, we enjoy it. Like Chris said, you go back and buy it, of course. Yeah, man, be ifnitting I had a service like that. Yeah, never ever, it's just kind of just so behind the time. Really thinks they noise, because do you have so many people saying it? So they're so behind on the times of the online service. And it's not just you seen it with the over other previous concerns, as was the same thing over and over. They just don't I don't know. I just don't know. US Way they make my favorite game, yeah, all time, but Nintendo. Yeah, they just we yeah, I don't know. Eventually getting right, I'll still doesn't even even have to use that damn switch at Nope, I only thing I use it for is just check my respecting must yeah, chap, that contraption that they wanted to encourage youables. Used to have voice challenge. That's it. That's the yeah, yeah, it's that, but I've never, I'd ever used it. Who would use it? What kind of lose it would use it? I call that time. I letally just download discording your phone, although that's the thing. That's IT, exactly that. Why would anyone go through that? I think the only thing that is used for is like when you're playing with other people. But even so, I don't think let you talk to everyone and anyone does it. MMM, I've never used a much. I'll be your friends only it's to your friends. I'm sure I'll given them. Yeah, define your friends. That's points no sense at all, man, in this day and age, that's something that we I'd expect in two thousand three from yeah, every single gleam. Shoot, you should be able to voice at with luckily, withs just intendo behind with some things, some things I still doing good games or pretty free. Yeah, cool, hopefully. All right, guys, it's been real. We've been for as academia. Yes, sir, enjoyed the content. Stay locked in with our instagram, to tick tock. Youtube will really know a lot of time talk.
