Here's the poster that arrived at the start of San Diego's Comic Con today.

Woo hoo beat Lightning Returns last night. I have mixed feelings about putting the FFXIII trilogy behind me now. All in all, I enjoyed the series despite some frustrations I experienced along the ride. I was thinking about doing a new game+ to get some of the quests I missed through my first playthrough, but I feel like moving on to something new. Anyone here played the new One Piece Unlimited World 3DS game? I've never watched the anime, but the gameplay style looks fun and it reminded me of Ni No Kuni which I loved.

Oh, and congrats Monsoon on your new 3DS. It looks like you have a ton of new titles to play already. You can hit me up on the StreetPass for the summoning a friend benefit if you get in a bind later. Have fun!

Discovered two interesting things lately. 1) Hayao Miyazaki spends "retirement" by working everyday at Studio Ghibli mentoring young animators. http://en.rocketnews24.com/2014/07/09/hayao-miyazaki-spends-retirement-from-anime-by-spending-every-day-at-his-animation-studio/ and 2) ran across a really cool documentary on how Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli work titled, "The Kingdom of Dreams and Madness" some Twitter user Josh Scherr https://twitter.com/joshscherr/status/489842672278851584, uploaded it to YouTube yesterday, but it looks like it's already been taken down. Bummer. I caught the first 15 minutes of it but couldn't stick around for the full two hour length. If you're a die hard Ghibli fan you'll love it, but if you're a casual Ghibli fan, it will probably be pretty boring, quiet and slow.

This is what happens when you fall off a trampoline with a dog near by.

Must be the small karts, but this reminded me of Mario Kart minus turtle shells or evil Luigi stare.

Reach to the Sky - Galneryus.

Awesome instrumental track that starts off Japan's power metal act with their latest full-length album (2012), "Angel of Salvation" with high energy. Somehow very inspiring to me.

Yikes... I feel bad for people who have to fly often.

Fun game, but already stuck on Lich Yard "Specter Knight" level due to the constant lightning flashes a la "lights out". Timing the jump just right during the flash is tricky. One false move and you miss a ledge support and plummet to instadeath. Shovel Knight has an astonishing 300 cheat codes here: http://www.ign.com/wikis/shovel-knight/Cheat_Codes. I'm resisting using them until I can't continue without outside help.

On my last day in Lightning Returns. I'm horrible with time management, but I completed my main quests so I shouldn't be seeing the game over screen when I run out of time, haha. Still playing Mario Kart 8 here and there with wife and friends. I also just started up Shovel Knight for Wii U. Holy crap, I forgot how hard old school side scrolling games are. I grew up with Mega Man, but I always seemed to hand over the Nintendo controller when I fell off a ledge to my older brother who made the game look easy, haha. I love the cheesy dialog and 8bit music score of Shovel Knight. Good times!

Still skeptical about this one. I wish this was an arch in one of the Avengers or solo movies or even an after credit scene, but Marvel's sticking to their guns to give Ant Man his own solo treatment. I'll be amazed if they can stick to their summer 2015 premiere date given how long post-production usually takes.

I liked the character introduction of the Fire Emblem: Awakening characters to SSB. Aeolus probably knows, but I think the cut scene was a revamped anime scene early on from the 3DS game. Cross referencing from what I see on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Smash_Bros._for_Nintendo_3DS_and_Wii_U, there are going to be a ton of new players. Pretty much a ton of players overall. Do we know what the magic max number of characters they will stop at? It's crazy to think that Brawl came out in March 2008 for the U.S. Feels like forever ago. Only a few more months now, woot woot.

hopefully Shulk will be there eventually (hell, Xenoblade was a damn puzzle on the 3DS streetpass).

Would love a Shulk addition! Imagine him saying, "BEHOLD! THE POWER OF THE MONADO!"

Wish I saw this two weeks ago, but incredibly awesome! World Cup meets Westeros (A Song of Fire and Ice series) in these country "sigils"

Photo dimensions were a bit big, so here's the link for the U.S. version:

All other countries in the cup:

Glad you guys liked the video! Also, those ducks are perfect for perspective. I went on six flags magic mountain ride "tatsu" a year or so ago that had one of those "pretzel rolls." A first for me. I felt like I was a second away from blacking out after clenching my jaw and closing my eyes too long after I felt the g-force not letting go, haha. Woops!

Tatsu POV. Pretzel roll starts at 1:12 I believe.

World's tallest waterslide at 168 feet and 7 inches. Would you ride it? :)

Planes nearly miss each other during take off & landing. Good thing the pilot had quick reflexes.

Def. some internal drama happening inside Marvel execs and Hollywood creatives. For some reason no one wants to touch this thing with a ten foot pole.

Well, another year has passed. To celebrate GoT season 4 I have a special spoof gif to share:
