Apparently we’ll never run out of examples of jerks desperate for attention & willing to lie to get it.

Pokemon GO has taken the world by storm, from longtime Pokemon fans to brand new trainers embarking on their first adventure. Users have banded together to catch them all, flooding parks, campuses, and piers (no seriously, have you seen the Santa Monica Pier?) in hopes of finding the adorable but sometimes elusive creatures. And while some users don’t seem to understand the development process that new apps such as this one must undergo during the first few weeks, complaining and/or rage quitting in spectacularly self-aggrandizing fashions, most users are still happily into the hype.

So how has the quest to catch them all been going? Pretty well, for those who have dedicated their time to Poke-hunting and carefully collecting and cultivating evolutions, eggs, and stats. Some users can boast a wide selection of cute, ferocious Pocket Monsters. But there are still a few that have yet to be seen.

Since the game’s release in July, reports have occasionally surfaced from users claiming to have found and caught one of the Legendary birds: Moltres, Zapdos, or Articuno. The most recent, and most substantial, was posted by an Ohio player who claimed to have received an Articuno as a gift after contacting Niantic’s help department. Screenshots and video, including a video of the Apology Articuno sitting in an Ohio gym, helped to give this claim more backing than any of the previous ones.

There’s a lot of advice that can be flung about in the weeks leading up to San Diego Comic Con. And rightfully so, with the sheer number of events, people, and experiences available over the long weekend. Comic Con boasts a staggering–and rather overwhelming–presence of life and activity during its run, and attendees are left to sort through hundreds and hundreds of events and figure out where their priorities are. Calendars and planning apps attempt to help us organize our hectic runs, but there’s so much to do and only so much time. We all sift through the events and prioritize, make schedules and contingencies and routes of travel to ensure we make it to our destination. We plan. We plan because it gives us a modicum of control, and in this vast and constantly active world, we need some semblance of having a handle on things. We set ourselves up for the things we’d love to experience, the known events that have been handed to us and fit with our interests.

And then the Con starts. More events, opportunities, and experiences are thrown at you. And some of your carefully wrought plans fall to the wayside.

But seriously.

DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF. And even some of the big stuff.

Really, that’s the absolute best advice we could possibly give you.

Because not everything is going to go as planned.

For those of you who regularly attend Anime Expo, you know exactly what to expect: Manga, Anime, crazy fans, long lines, unique merchandise, big production announcements, themed cafes, screening events… well the list goes on. The program boasts 100 scheduled events on the first day alone. For those of you who have never attended, it can be a bit overwhelming. The guide suggests following a “Programming Track,” of which there were three: “Kid’s Day,” “Cultural Workshop,” and the “AX Anime & Manga Studies Symposium.” The decision to peruse a more complex side of the expo was an easy one to make. I only hope to do justice to this truly rich, weird, heady, and critical study of this complex media.

Grab your controllers, ready your 8-bit love, and get hyped up because the sequel to “Wreck-It Ralph” is official!

While the news of the film had been swirling around for ages, mostly led on by John C. Reilly and his letting details slip here and there, the official confirmation came today via a live Facebook broadcast. Rich Moore, Phil Johnston, and special guest John C. Reilly spread the news, whilst even holding a pair of “Wreck-It Ralph” foam hands. Hey, we have a pair of those!

What might the next film be about? Rich Moore shared with D23 that he’s been developing the untitled sequel since soon after Wreck-It Ralph’s release.

“From the moment we started working on the first Wreck-It Ralph, we knew there were so many possibilities with these characters,” he said—before revealing that Ralph will be venturing beyond the arcade in the new film. “This time, Ralph’s wrecking wreaks havoc on the Web—as only he can do. Characters we loved in the first film are back and we are ecstatic to be working with them—and the actors who voice them—once again.”

“The world of the Internet is the perfect place to send Ralph and Vanellope,” Johnston said. “The scope and scale are so vast and the possibilities for comedy are endless.”

Where do you want to see Ralph and Vanellope go? Should they ride the pages of Reddit? Tumble through Tumblr? How about unbox a Loot Crate? Needless to say, we’re bound to be in for some fun in 2018!

Wreck-it Ralph 2 coming March 9, 2018.

Following a leak, The Pokemon Company confirmed a slew of new Pokemon for the upcoming Sun / Moon release. In the video, we get a taste of each new addition via a battle clip, and a rundown of each new creature. Right now, we don’t have much information on the specifics of the newly introduced crew. But get a look at them all the same, both in the video and individual screenshots we’ve got below (complete with the apparent names of each new species)! Since the only source we currently have is in Japanese, we’ll be updating with more details when they come out.

No Hogwarts here- here we have Ilvermorny School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

We’ll keep you updated as more details come out. It’s the beginning of oh so much new on the San Diego Comic Con front!

FX announced today the renewal of “Archer” for three additional 8 episode seasons. What does this mean for fans of the sophisticatedly unsophisticated spy? It means that the animated comedy  will sit live on your television or streaming device through Season 10.

Nick Grad, president of original programming for FX Networks and FX Productions, had this to say about the animated show’s renewal:

We can’t say enough about what Adam, Matt and the entire Archer team at Floyd County have done to keep this series so insanely funny and vital through seven seasons. The move to Los Angeles this past season as private detectives was just the latest twist in Archer’s legendary exploits and the next three seasons will to be just as amazing and unpredictable.

The show’s tremendous voice talent is lent by H. Jon Benjamin as Archer, Aisha Tyler as Lana Kane, Jessica Walter as Malory Archer, Chris Parnell as Cyril, Judy Greer as Cheryl/Carol/Cherlene/Whatever She Feels That Day, Amber Nash as Pam, Adam Reed as Ray and Lucky Yates as Krieger.

Adam Reed and Floyd County Productions created the series. Reed and Matt Thompson serve as executive producers. FX Productions produces the series. About the creative team, FX had to say that they “are thrilled to continue making great TV with our friends and colleagues at Floyd County.” We have to agree with those sentiments. We love us some Archer!
