Russia is a country that does not seem to like Pokémon Go. They previously arrested a man and charged him with inciting religious hatred for playing Pokémon Go in a church. He faces 3 years imprisonment if found guilty.

It seems the Simpsons have also run afoul of the country for this same reason. A recent Simpsons episode say the show spoof Pokémon Go and had Homer play a similar game inside a church. This angered Russian clerics and the episode has been held back in the country as a result.

Toyota has been promoting their car, the C-HR with “crossover” commercials. One recent commercial shows Ryu from Street Fighter driving the car through the other stages before battling M Bison in the car. I am not doing it justice and this needs to be seen.

This is the car commercial for me. If I saw this on TV, I would be very interested in the car. What about you all?

I like how gaming is becoming more entwined with advertising for products like cars and such. It helps make gaming feel more accepted than it has been in the past.

Sept 8 marks the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise, one of the most important sci-fi series of all time. I have long had an affinity for the franchise, dating back to when I was a child and would watch episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation with my family. Star Trek has always been a part of my life really. When I was in elementary and junior high school, I would come home and watch repeats of Star trek Voyager ( which I can’t watch anymore as I can only see the flaws now) and later got into Deep Space Nine.

I didn’t see the original series until I was 15, when the first episode I saw was the season 2 episode “A Piece of the Action”, the episode where the crew encountered the Iotian people who have based their society on 1920’s gangsters. It was a quirky show and after that I watched episodes like “The Squire of Gothos” which is the one that got me hooked. After that episode, I came to enjoy the original series a lot more and it helped me to truly appreciate the series that came after it. When I first decided to see the movies, I didn’t know what to expect. The first one was just confusing but from The Wrath of Khan onward they were good, yes even the odd numbered ones.

My personal favourite Star Trek series has always been Deep Space Nine. It was the darkest of the franchise but had the most character development. The characters who started the series were not the same at the end ( literally in one case). It showed a captain who was willing to do whatever it took to get the job done, but Captain Sisko was also haunted by his actions. The episode “In The Pale Moonlight” is the greatest episode of the series in my opinion, simply because it showed that war makes everything a shade of grey. It had memorable characters such as Quark, Odo, Major Kira and coming from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Worf. It also had amazing villains such as the Dominion and Gul Dukat. If you haven’t seen the series, then I recommend you check it out as soon as possible.

Star Trek inspired so much in society, from societal progress to technological innovation and influenced the entire genre of science fiction from that point onward. This is the franchise that boldly went, where no one had gone before!

No GravatarMarvel and Netflix have released a new trailer showing off the new Luke Cage TV series. The series looks true to the comics while adding its own bend. Netflix has done a great job with the Marvel properties so far and this will hopefully be no different.

Check out the trailer below.

No GravatarIt’s been 18 years since the last Dragon Ball anime, Dragon Ball GT, concluded in Japan. And let’s be honest, a lot of fans would like to forget that series ever aired. The series is not considered to be canon and had very little input from the original series creator. A few years ago the Kai series began, which cuts out much of the fluff and filler from Dragon Ball Z and also redraws many scenes to give the show a shiny new coat. But not we are about to get an all new anime titled Dragon Ball Chou. Chou can be translated to “super” and it seems that the english title will infect be “Dragon Ball Super.”

Dragon-Ball-Freeza-Super

Dragon Ball Chou will take place after the events of the Majin Buu saga, the last saga in the Dragon Ball Z series. It hasn’t been confirmed if it will take place before or after the recent movies Battle of Gods and Resurrection ‘F’, which are considered cannon. But like the movies, series creator Akira Toriyama will over see the new series and be heavily involved.

In an official press release from Toei Animation, Masako Nozawa, voice actress for Goku, Gohan, Gotten, and Bardock, had this to say. “I’ve used the word ‘cho’ (super) in so many commercials, games and other media, it is fantastic that the long awaited Dragon Ball Super will finally begin. I hope that this series will last a long time and have the same impact around the world as its predecessor.”

Osamu Nozaki, a producer at Fuji TV said, “As I read the plot I’ve a;ready received from Akira Toriyama, my dreams for this begin to expand. An enemy even stronger than Buu or Freeza may appear…”

Dragon Ball Chou is set to air this July on Fuji TV on Sundays at 9:00 am.

Another character has been cast for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League – Jason Momoa as Aquaman!

For any of you that are fans of the Game of Thrones series, you’ll recognize Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo! He performed amazingly in Game of Thrones so I have faith that he’ll do well as Aquaman.

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice will hit theatres on May 6, 2016.

How do you feel about Jason Momoa as Aquaman? How do you feel about Aquaman being cast? Let us know in the comments!
