I could’ve handled the metal gear rip off(s), and the forced love interest maybe. But that last part pissed me off.
Like not only was this scientist just nicely reunited with his family after he kept them in this realm while tearing them from the other realm; but on top of that he just shoots himself and his family is all happy to see him?? Really?
And I think I could’ve handled the dedications, but then I remember that you JUST showed us that the “Infra world” had horrible evil spirits and that the majority of them were just cursed to wander there for eternity. Why would you do a dedication only to state that someone you love is there? Why would you want your loved ones to be in a place with all of these horrible things??
Consistency is what this “game” needed. I could’ve liked/purchased this game, it really had potential. I could’ve been okay with the girl having magical powers. I could’ve been okay with the Ghost Whisperer/ 6th Sense bullshit. But…. Then you’re like Chinese Underwater Base, African war lord sequence…..
And wtf Jodie didn’t have the ability to be rude to Ryan the entire game? And wtf was the party at the beginning for? That did nothing for the plot!
Ugh super fuck this “game”
the party was for nothing? whaT ABOUT FUCKING NAVAJO!?
Part of the whole Navajo thing, to me, is like showing that people have basically been dicking around with the infraworld even before Jodie really spurred any efforts on, and also to show that Jodie can either save people and stop the evil spirits or screw up terribly, which arguably foreshadows the endings.
Of course, I realise I’ve probably put more thought into that than Cage.
With “Batman” #28 now set for a Six Months Later issue, “Batman” #29 will conclude the “Dark City” arc of “Zero Year” — but that wasn’t all Snyder had to share. The writer immediately took to Twitter to post a character design by Dustin Nguyen for the spoiler issue of — in Snyder’s words — “a new (?) character appearing in the new #28.”
It reminds me of Ladytron, who Nguyen did flawlessly. LOVE. Unless it’s Harper, in which case.. The fuck?
I AM SO READY.
I’m still not convinced that America can properly ‘get’ Godzilla in the context in which the monster was initially formulated - the idea of the bomb made monstrous and violent and sentient and maybe something like a little bit of a perceived punishment which is only erased by real and tragic sacrifice, but.. The Showa films pretty much abandoned that with Godzilla Raids Again anyway…
Still, in some ways, I’d almost be interested in the idea of the American Godzilla representing the American ideal of the bomb, which was immediately less about it’s destructive power and more about proliferation and deterrence.. But then I realise that’s basically Doctor Manhattan.
This looks great, though. Leagues beyond the Emmerich mess that I don’t even want to call Godzilla.
