The Biggest Cheater in Gaming History? (1700+ Scores w/ no Evidence)

Check it out yo, straight out of King of Kong this due with a billion records on video games from 40 years ago that almost no one plays, or really ever remembers playing, cheated his way into the record books. It wasn't even a creative cheat like what's going on with Billy Mitchell right now, where he's being accused of setting Donkey Kong records with a modded machine, he was just making up scores and for whatever reasons people believed him.

I'm a pretty big dork and I'm not afraid of boasting some pretty stupid accomplishments (for instance, setting the high Score on Karate Champ at the Hotel in Virginia when we went on the class trip to Washington DC or having a 16-0 record on the original NBA Jam at the Arcade by my friend Brian's house) but what on earth are these guys gaining by cheating and lying their way to the top? Are they inexplicably just swimming in pussy? Is there a King of Kong 2 in the works I just haven't heard about yet?

Cobra Kai Teaser

Here we have a first look at Ralph Macchio and William Zabka in the newest Karate Kid sequel, the Youtube Red webseries Cobra Kai. Honestly none of those things I just typed make a damn bit of sense in the year 2018 but I'll be damned if I don't give this at least a try. It's written and produced by the guys that did Hot Tub Time Machine and the Harold and Kumar movies so I guess it's going to be a comedy? I don't know, it's either going to be fantastic or awful. I can't imagine a middle ground with this one.

Start Practicing your crane kicks now, this comes out "soon".

Deadpool, Meet Cable

New trailer for Deadpool 2 hit the interwebs this morning. This one highlighting everyone's favorite gun toting mysterious mutant from the future, Cable. It's pretty funny, I mean I don't necessarily think a superhero saying Fuck is funny in itself but the bit with Cable's CGI gun is kinda cute.

I liked the first Deadpool WAY more than I thought I would, I'm really hoping that the sequel lives up to the hype. Especially because they've expanded the cast to include quite a few of my favorite X-Men from the 90s.

As long as we're talking R rated fare, the big news yesterday was Disney signing the producing team behind Game of Thrones to a 3 movie deal for a new Star Wars spin off. Internet reaction was pretty mixed. I didn't realize it but I guess a lot of fancy nerds have already turned on GOT, especially after those two producers were tapped to make that weird "Civil War but the South Won" series for HBO. Personally, I'm fine with it. Those two have proven they can adapt a really dense story to the small screen, It sounds like they're going to take a crack at the previously scrapped Star Wars Expanded Universe, and man you want to talk about dense...

As long as they keep the movies PG and PG-13 I'm down to see what they make. I really don't want to have to go off again on how Star Wars is for kids.

Solo: A Star Wars Story: A Trailer

So yesterday during the Superb Owl, Lucasfilm debuted a teaser trailer for Solo: A Star Wars Story. After feeling the pressure from the Cloverfield guys who don't even release trailers anymore they just beam the movies directly into your brain without warning, they went ahead and released a full length trailer. It looks fine, I'd probably be a bit more excited about it if the guy playing Han looking even the least big like Harrison Ford, or better yet showed just a fraction of his charm.

I'm sure a lot will be made about the rocky road of filming this movie; Rewrites, fired directors, additional scenes filmed after wrap. Honestly I don't really care how the sausage was made. Rogue One supposedly had all sorts of problems and it turned out fantastic. Personally, I'm more interested/concerned with how this movie is going to fit into existing Star Wars cannon.

For an obsessive nerd like me, one of the worst sins of the prequels is that they contradicted the original trilogy at every turn. Rogue One was able to avoid most of those pitfalls by having a new cast of characters and then killing them all off. They put in some hard work to make sure Rogue One transitioned into A New Hope seamlessly. That's going to be a lot harder with a prequel that's all about a couple of the main characters.

For whatever it's worth there probably isn't a bad review on earth that's going to keep me from seeing this in the theater, I'm definitely not going to be dissuaded by a luke warm trailer. Heck, the movie will probably be worth it just for the speeder chase we see a couple of seconds of. As bad as Episode I is you can always put on the pod race and I'm still happy as a clam.

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP - Teaser Trailer

I wasn't expecting a trailer for the next Ant Man movie, Ant Man and The Wasp, today but here we are. I wonder why Marvel didn't just premier it with Black Panther, that movie comes out in like 2 weeks. Or maybe they did last night (at the Hollywood premiere) and they're just worried about getting an official version on line before someone posts shaky cell phone footage.

Wordburglar "Boombaparang"

Wordburglar has a new video out, you should watch it. Then you should go to bandcamp and download the album Rapplicable skills. Then you should eat a healthy breakfast and call you mother, she worries about you.

Marvel Funko Presents: Submarine Showdown

So Marvel is doing little animated advertisements for their Funko dolls. I guess that's cool? Funko sells like a billion dollars worth of these little plastic dolls. Isn't that kind of amazing? At every comic book convention with a Funko booth they have a lottery and people line up for hours to try and get con-exclusive variants of their favorite dolls. Whenever I go to ECCC I'll see people with these huge bags just full of them. At only $10 a pop I can see how people can get sucked in really quick. It's just the right amount that you don't feel bad about blowing on a whim, but before you know it your spare room is full and you've spent a few grand and your wife is taking the kids to her sisters.
