Recently, the Walt Disney Company announced, pressured by thousands in an online petition, along with the Black Lives Matter movement, that they are re-theming their immensely popular water attraction, SPLASH MOUNTAIN. They decided this because of the ride’s ties to the racially divisive motion-picture SONG OF THE SOUTH, a feature-film produced by Disney, considered by many to be the first feel-good movie about being a slave.
So I ask this simple question to the Walt Disney company: why stop there?
The Disney parks are full of racist, woman-bashing, human demoralizing, murderous, drug-using, notorious connections to the past (and present!)
Come along on a journey with me as we explore the nefarious (not so!) Happiest Place on Earth!
THE HALL OF PRESIDENTS
Let’s begin with the most racist, misogynistic, corrupt Disney attraction of them all! An audio-animatronic extravaganza at Walt Disney’s Magical Kingdom, starrin...
I love my Switch. And I love everything Mario! And, I love tactical turn-based games like Paper Mario, Fire Emblem, Advanced Wars! So, at E3, when I played the demo to the new tactical turn-based adventure Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, I started to salivate!
Check out the new "Mario-centric" trailer for this game above! Then stand-by soon for my review! The game launches at stores everywhere and digital download August 29, 2017!
Saturday July 15, Nintendo was kind enough to give all Switch owners a 4-hour free opportunity to play the fantastically addictive Splatoon 2! And it didn't disappoint!
I picked team Ice Cream, played for 4 hours, and Ice Cream melted Team cake 2-1! The game plays smooth, fast, and yes, you will scream at you TV screen! Based on the Splatfest alone, Splatoon 2 is a 10/10 for me!
Splatoon 2 launched Friday July 21, and, I will be playing this minute one as soon as it's released (yes, I put over 700 hours in the original Splatoon, which I have dubbed GAME OF THE DECADE)
If you can get your hands on a Switch, do it ASAP if not just for this game (of course, Zelda Breath of the Wild, Mario Kart 8 and the upcoming Mario Odyssey are reasons alone to get it!)
Amazing the Nintendo's Switch first two first-party games, Zelda Breath of the Wild and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, have mid-90's Metascores! I have played over 300 hours of Zelda, and still love going back to play!
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a gem of a game. Looks as amazing if not better than it's Wii U counter-part, but what's great is that it's portable, plays great portably, can play 2-players on same portable Switch using 2 joy-cons and looks mind-blowing on 70" HD screen!
The battle mode is simply AWESOME, especially the new Renegade Roundup and Shine Thief modes! Especially when you play these two modes in the Splatoon inspired battle arenas, you get that crazy, addictive gameplay feeling when you play Splatoon's fantastic RANKED LEVELS. Out of the 5 battle modes, these two modes alone make it worth getting the Switch version!
More karts, more characters, great use of Amiibo, solid online (except the fact that you still can't voice chat. Yes, Nintendo...
