I'm also excited for PSO2. I was one of the ones that enjoyed and played the crap out of Universe, so I was pretty disappointed when I learned they wouldn't release it here. PSO2's announcement was probably the most unexpected thing at E3, for me at least.

As for FF7, their attention to detail is fantastic. I'm hoping that Square-Enix finally gets out of their weird slump with this. I'm liking the look of the new ATB system, as magic was something that I was worried about. If FFXV had a similar system with magic, as opposed to being clunky-but-overpowered, I feel like it could have redeemed that game somewhat. Looks like good old SE learned a lot from that venture.

Elden Ring looks fantastic, and I'll probably play die in this one a whole bunch.

I'm watching it for sure, if only to complete the trilogy. They're going to have to score big in the action department to win the fans back, admittedly. I've enjoyed all of the releases the recent years have brought, but their cinematography and writing needs a lot of work for it to do well. If Boba Fett crawls out of the Sarlacc and plays some part in the movie (I think the overall theme of this one is that the dead baddies aren't dead), the previously spurned fans will lose their collective shit.

Seriously, people can knock the prequels all they want, but at least George did some great world building from a visual standpoint.

The Sequel Trilogy? Hey look we're back on Tatooine or some desert planet... again.
Death Star 3.0
The Empire looks the same, still
Was that Endor again somewhere?
Here's Hoth 2.0 with specks of red dust
Millennium Falcon!
Like most modern films, we forgot what color is

Visually, the ST has no personality/identity at all.

I agree with all of this, and I truthfully feel as though the original spirit of Star Wars will never be created again with Lucas (and after this film, John Williams) out of the picture. That said, I feel there's a certain charm to the new films. They were still fun, despite treading familiar territory.

While the two new lightsaber-wielders are hit-and-miss, their awkwardness has a weird chemistry. I feel like both of the characters are pretty weak when they're off doing separate things, but when they're in the same room/scene (omitting the infamous Swolo scene), that's when it starts to seem like all of the studio suddenly gets it, except for the choreographer. Fuck that guy.

Then again, the terrible choreography could be due to the haste of production. I can see where that can get screwy, but still -- the throne room scene looked cool at first, but there were just so many things wrong with it. I know you're not supposed to watch a movie in slow-motion, but it's kind of like one of those "once you see it" moments. I much prefer the "dancing" of the prequel trilogy, at least they did their scenes with some control. I can write off Rey and Kylo's bad unorthodox saber skills as them having literally nobody to spar with beforehand, but the little things piled up quickly. Now, I don't hate this scene, it happens to be one of my favorites -- I just see so much wasted potential and it hurts that it'll never be fixed, and that's how I'll always remember it. NOT THE SABER SCENES, MAN! NOT THE SABER SCENES!

I love what they did with Broly, and the movie in general! I'm a bit behind on Super. I watched all the way to the Tournament, figuring it was a good place to pick it back up when there were more episodes available (I like to binge watch).

39° in the morning, mid 60's during the day, and some of the craziest wind I've seen in Oregon in my lifetime over the past couple weeks, and now it's been lovely for three days. I don't know what to expect anymore, even though I'm used to the seasons suddenly shifting forward and back midday (90° day when suddenly it snows for a week straight).

Nowadays though, we're getting a ton of wind and wind like this isn't normal. I'd expect rain and thunderstorms, but that was this year's summer weather, which is also strange (one, mayyyybe two is normal).

I want my normal crazy weather back.
