Warning, Incoming Game

Now if you don't know what this means, then I'm ashamed of you. Reboot was one of the best shows on Toonami from 1994-2001 (it's hard for me to believe that it was really on for 6 years) and was also made by Canadian company Mainframe Entertainment (makers of Beast Wars). All you DBZ fans don't come whining to me here about how it was so good because I will have no sympathy while shooting you down. ReBoot was a CG show about the characters inside a computer and what would happen to them when someone played a video game. The main characters were Bob (Guardian #452), Dot Matrix (who for some reason owns a diner inside the computer), Enzo Matrix (Dot's little brother) and his dog Frisket, Phong (the old philosophical advisor to Bob), AndrAIa (a game sprite that is later Enzo's gf), and Mouse (originally bad and then changes sides to help Dot and Enzo). The main bad guys are Megabyte and Hexadecimal who were as corny as 90's cartoons could make them. This trailer makes me remember how good and bad 90's cartoons could be at the same time. It makes me want to see if Netflix has Reboot on their "Watch it Instantly" list, even though I seriously doubt it.

Since the movie is still in production, there's not too much info I can get about it other than the fact that it's supposed to be a trilogy of films and that it's due to come out in 2010. Also if you want proof that this teaser isn't just a fan-made trailer to get people excited for no reason head over to Rainmaker's site.

Zach Braff Isn't Dead and Neither is Scrubs

On Monday there was a pretty big internet rumor (originally found here, but now it's gone due to the massive bad publicity) going around that Zach Braff was found dead in his home. Zach Braff decided to clear it up by posting this on his facebook. Turns out the whole thing was supposedly a joke that someone had tried to play on their friends 2 years ago and just hadn't removed from his website. Anyways, somehow the link resurfaced and made crazy news that even made it's way to Zach Braff's mom; which caused Zach to give the creator of this "joke" the douchebag of the day award.

Anyway, putting this prank gone horribly wrong aside, Zach mentioned something very interesting on his video on facebook. He talked about shooting the new Scrubs intro and and this made me confused. I mean everyone knows that Scrubs had it's series finale this year and that it wasn't supposed to be making anymore episodes right? Wrong, turns out Scrubs is headed for it's "9th" season. That is, if you consider the new Scrubs the same show as the old one. The new show is supposed to take a deeper look into the medical campus joined to the hospital (which I'm pretty sure the original show only revealed once during a morbidity and morality conference that Elliot had to present). It centers around 3 new interns that Dr. Cox and Turk are supposed to be teaching. I hope they keep the old new interns as residents now too, since they were pretty good characters imo. According to Wikipedia Eliza Coupe (aka "Joe") will be returning along with the 3 new interns Michael Mosley (aka Drew), Dave Franco (aka Cole), and Kerry Bishé (aka Lucy), who is supposed to be the new narrator of the show. Sadly J.D. and Elliot are only supposed to be in 6 episodes before leaving the show for good. Also the Janitor might not be in the new show either after the opening episode because of his role in The Middle. All in all Scrubs could still be a good show considering they're keeping Turk, Dr. Cox, and supposedly Joe. But, I feel a little like it could start to suck too, like when Eric left That 70's Show.

Andy is All Grown Up

I meant to post this trailer for Toy Story 3 yesterday, but I'm sick now. The trailer shows that Andy is actually leaving for college now, and so the toys start freaking out. It looks like they get donated to a daycare or something since they are being nommed on by toddlers. I love it when they reset Buzz so that he's not only obnoxious, but also speaks only in Spanish. Overall looks like a good movie to me. I'd post more but like I said, I'm dying.

[Edit: Cinema Blend has removed this video until Monday since Disney whined at them. Not so sure what's so special about it being allowed to be viewed on Monday vs. today but when Disney whines at you, you listen I guess. If you didn't see it I'd advise hunting through Youtube, but I'm sure any videos are going to be deleted almost as soon as their posted. Make sure to come watch it here tomorrow!]

I have seen FFxiii and It is Beautiful!

This is the newest trailer for Final Fantasy 13 and it's safe to say that the new gameplay shouldn't disappoint. Now, before you watch the video I will tell you this; the girl making out with Snow is not Lightning. I sat there for about 5 minutes trying to figure out why the girl didn't really look completely like Lightning, but still really resembled her in a weird way. Turns out the girl is Lightning's sister Serah Farron, which should cause some good drama seeing as how Serah looks like she's about 12 and Snow looks more like he's 20-30. I guess it could just be that Snow is so tall that he makes Serah look like a child, since she almost looks slightly younger than Vanille when she stands next to her, but it still kinda creeps me out. Serah is also supposed to be kidnapped our something in order to force Snow and Lightning to team up. There's also a new little boy named Hope Estheim who vaguely reminds me of Titus, except he doesn't seem obnoxious (yet, his voice is definitely not as whiney for sure). He also seems to hangout with Lightning, a lot. There's a nice little clip of him yelling at Snow, which ends with Hope exploding (which I hope is him trying to tell Snow to stop being a pedophile by dating Lightning's little sister lol).

The fight scenes just look awesome, especially once things are summoned. Instead of the summons just having their own specials this time around, it looks like the characters can mount up on them and do a combined special. For instance, Lightning has a sort of angel thing that transforms into a pony, and when she mounts up on it she holds some huge scythes up to kill things with as they charge through them. Sazh has some kind of mechanical summon that transforms into somewhat of a dragster. Sadly, it seems like the special of the dragster is to either swing around and hit monsters of just shoot sparks at it from it's back wheels.

As far as the rest of the trailer goes, I wish there was more Vanille, since the most you really get to see of her is when she's captured with Sazh when she's begging Serah for something (also kinda creeped out by that part), and when she's fighting with Sazh about something (I guess there's more of her than I thought, but still not enough imo). The game finally comes out December 17, for all of the people that actually bought a Playstation 3. As far as I can figure out, the release date for the Xbox 360 will be sometime in Spring 2010.
