    Mob Psycho episode 5 had some of the best TV animation this year.

    The Umbrella Academy coming to Netflix

    Both shows about weird, dysfunctional groups of superheroes, set in a whacky, surreal world. So yeah similar in premise.

    Doom Patrol just come out too, always thought they were pretty similar in theme.
  5. Remaster - This is the most common category and what most people are usually referring to. Also sometimes called the "HD" version of a game. This is a port of an existing game to a (usually) newer platform which may or may not have improvements made to its presentation. Improvements can be as simple as having a higher resolution/framerate, or as complex as new features, tweaked assets, new lighting effects, etc. Examples: The Last of Us Remastered (duh), Skyrim: Special Edition, GTA V (PS4/XBO), Wind Waker HD, Devil May Cry Collection. Remake - Arguably the most desirable category. For the most part, a remake is a brand new game that closely adheres to the design and narrative of a previous game, only now created with modern tools (like a modern engine) and techniques. If not entirely created from scratch, generally speaking, the game will contain more new code/assets than old recycled code/assets. Examples: Shadow of the Colossus PS4, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, Tomb Raider Anniversary, Resident Evil (Gamecube). Reboot - A brand new game, with new design concepts, that shares only loose ties to the core design concept or existing characters/lore of an ongoing series. Otherwise viewed as a sequel, or prequel, that throws away most of what has been previously established in an interconnected series of games. Narratively and thematically, it often returns to the origin of the series, and sometimes re-uses the same name as the first in a series, though not always. Examples. DmC, Tomb Raider (2013), DOOM (2016), Mortal Kombat (2011). Reimagining - Similar to a remake, only with far more liberties taken with respect to the design and narrative. In extreme cases, it can have attributes of both a remake and a reboot. Examples: Ratchet and Clank (2016), XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Metroid: Samus Returns, Final Fantasy VII Remake (name is misleading imo). To be clear, a lot of this can be subjective, and there are definitely many games that fall into grey areas. For example, Mortal Kombat (2011) is a reimagining of the narrative from the first 3 MK games, while from a design perspective, it is a reboot. As another example, Resident Evil (PS3/PS4) can be considered a remaster of Resident Evil (Gamecube) which can be considered a remake of Resident Evil (PS1).

    Alita: Battle Angel

    But it has that one time when Racer X jumps his car up in the air, punched a viking in the face and then landed with the world's greatest shit-eating grin.

    OK you got me there, Speed Racer is criminally underrated.
  8. They could have done it like 3D Dot Heroes. However, I'm in the camp of liking the art style.
  9. I think it was more to do with me trying to explain things, and that particular dungeon.
  10. I know. It was like the blind leading the blind.
  11. Oh man I had such great memories of this game. Though my proudest achievement was calling the Nintendo UK hotline for help in those days. There was one particular dungeon I could't solve and while I tried my best to explain to him my problem, he just regurgitated the script he was given for the game. He obviously didn't play it but I pissed him off so much that he said he send me the printed part so as long as I wouldn't call again.

    Alita: Battle Angel

    This is probably the 2nd best anime movie live adaption. Edge of tomorrow being the first. Really fun and 90s action anime.

    Nintendo Direct - 13.02 10PM GMT

    Jet Set Radio Complete collection HD remaster would be nice. Or a complete Powerstone collection.
