I'm finally caught up on Arrow now, so I'll be catching up on Flash and Legends of Tomorrow next.

I won't spoil anything for those who aren't caught up on Arrow, so...
Code:
why do they keep doing flashbacks to Oliver Queen on the island and the power struggle with Baron Reiter. I know it has something to do with Damien Darhk's totem/statue power source. Just feels like they cut back to these scenes at the most random times during an episode, lol.

^ BUMP. So, has anyone played this on the 3DS, yet? So far it has a 1.5-star rating by Amazon reviewers. :*(

Brief reviews of movies I watched this weekend.

Keanu (2016) - Classic comedy from Key & Peele. The movie centers around a kitten getting kidnapped, yet has more to do with Key & Peele pretending to be wannabe thugs in LA. The movie was a good mix of comedy and action. Apparently, cats are seeing an increasing role in movies this year: http://www.usatoday.com/story/life/movies/2016/05/01/cat-movies-keanu-nine-lives-alice-looking-glass/83671120/.

Point Break (2015) - A remake with a twist. I went into this movie not expecting to see actors replace the classic 1991 roles of Swayze and Reeves which helped. I felt like I was watching an X-Games movie. Visually it was stunning, but the acting wasn't as memorable as the original to me. Before this movie, I had not heard of Luke Bracey who played the Reeves undercover FBI agent role. He appeared in GI Joe (2013) as Cobra Commander and a role in The November Man.

@Artimicia. I had a crush on her when I saw the movie as a kid. Although... what happened to her face recently?

I feel you. I personally can't get into any of those high school themed JRPGs. At my age, the notion alone makes me feel like I'm some kind of weirdo. That's obviously my hang up, of course...

This.

Also http://gematsu.com/2016/04/xenoblade-chronicles-coming-wii-u-virtual-console-april-28

At least the Wii U is going out the door with something.

That's cool. I wonder if how the graphics will look. It would be nice if they were upscaled or something similar than a straight port from the Wii. In a perfect world, I wish it could look like the Dolphin emulator with a bazillion 1080p HD texture packs: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7tWJxfDj8pQ

@Arvis - If you thought you clocked in a lot of time with XBCX, be prepared to tell your wife you're going to need increase one-to-one time with the original Xenoblade Wii U virtual console release, lol.

Yeah, but I really want to see Goats in the Salsa.

...I paid 300 bucks for it 4 months ago :(

Hear! Hear! Extortion I'd say.

@Aeolus - Lol cool but it's begging for a babymetal Mario remix track to overlay the gameplay. ^_^

RIP Wii U. You tried.



My sympathies, my friend. I bought Wii U shortly on initial release and waited for years for Xenoblade X to be released. I had Mario Kart and Smash Bros to tide me over until then, but... le sigh.

I'm amazed at how many times Zelda Wii U has been pushed back. They keep saying "pushed back for quality" but dang man, I wish they wouldn't announce a title until it was 80% complete, that way you don't get your hopes deflated when they announce the title at 10% developed and then playing the waiting game for years with very little announcements or work in progress updates. Ok, sorry rant over. I'm going to get back to playing Fire Emblem Fates on my 3DS, lol.

Hmm, yeah.  Definitely prefer the older artwork.  She's barely holding her sword and the flimsy feathers in her helmet look too dainty compared to the ones much more "stuck" in the helmet before. 

PSX artwork struck the balance between warrior and elegance much better, the new art just goes for 'pretty':


I think the only real thing I like about the new art is she grew out those dorky bangs.

Obviously, in the new art, she had a lot more feathers in her helmet but they are all in the process of falling out onto the ground.

And now I'm never going to unsee that dumb swath of hair between her eyes.  I LOATHE that on Azura in Fire Emblem Fates, and now I have to deal with it on Lenneth.  Aye yai yai....

Lol, you'd laugh at this hilarious and yet related article on Kotaku today:

Thanks for the advice. I guess the sad part is that I actually do proofread a lot and I use an editor lol. I'm good at explaining but putting into words properly has always been a problem for me. But thank you for the critic I am glad that I am able to at least get my point across very well. Maybe I need to take a writing class?

Do you use Grammarly? I use it for school and I love it. I don't know what platform you're using to write, yet I know it's 100x better than Microsoft Word's Grammar/Spellcheck.
