So I was researching Riot games and decided to try playing League of Legends. The League of Legends website had a pop-up for a new music video so I went and clicked it. I had seen fan art of the characters in this music video and the past one, but never knew where they were from.
Right off the bat I'm like whoa nice bike! Then I see it's a Ducati ... and then with the sexy women it clicked. This music video was definitely targeting men. One thing I learned when getting into motorcycles, if you want to get all the guys, buy a Ducati.
One thing I was kinda bummed by was that the women where all so similar, their legs, hips, and faces were almost the same. With 3D animation in general, there is so much we can do, so it just makes it seem a little boring in this aspect. Even their movements were identical.
The highlight was definitely their outfits, sold as 'skins' I believe. And the beautiful environments they were in.
I really enjoyed Over the Moon on Netflix.
The visuals are great, and the soundtrack is wonderful.
Without spoiling anything, the movie deals with heavy themes in a fantastical way and yet a realistic ending.
This is a movie that will most likely make the viewer cry, as they see the characters have genuine emotions and react to their experiences in a real way.
The timing of this movie's release is a bit difficult as we are still living under a pandemic where many people have died worldwide and shutdowns are again happening. This movie could be too much for someone who has recently lost someone dear to them, or someone working up close in the medical field.
I would definitely recommend that children watch this movie with an adult, and that the movie is researched before watching because of our worldwide situation right now.

One of my cats was diagnosed with mast cell skin tumors . She had three so the doctor removed them today in surgery, and it went well. Having to manage my cat though, she's a terrible patient, has been an experience so far.
It's made me wonder about animation and video games that focus on experiences like someone going through cancer themselves, and how there should be more made about our pets going through similar experiences.
Our pets are an extension of ourselves and we love them as family members. I think pet portrayals should be more than just fun and cute.
Netflix is going to have a new Godzilla series!
It will be hand drawn and have cgi.
The studio behind My Hero Academia is working on it too with the studio behind Beastars!
It releases in 2021. I'm so excited! I love My Hero Academia and Beastars so I'm expecting this show to be good.
This is a sketch of the characters by the studios.
A week ago I started playing No Man's Sky on my computer.
It was developed by Hello Games and originally was released in August of 2016. It had a rocky start as players didn't feel like the game lived up to expectations. From what I understand the game is remarkable in that every planet is randomly generated, and the game has so many planets that no one alive now would ever live to see every planet discovered! The early problems were that there wasn't enough variation of the planets and ecosystems. Players complained that every planet was basically the same but with slight changes. One early player wrote "As wide as an ocean, but has the depth of a puddle. Angry Joe - 2016" on a Steam review.
The reason why I recently bought the game and started playing, is that the developers saw what was happening and decided to change the game for the better. They rolled out numerous updates for the game and basically now it feels well rounded and enjoyable to players.
The graph above is pulled from Steam and shows that while reviews were very mixed and mainly negative in the beginning, their updates really brought players back to where they started recommending the game.
I never played No Man's Sky back in 2016, but I can say that now it is very enjoyable! It's full of grinding and pure exploration that makes me feel almost like a real person in Star Trek, although solo. The visuals are great and it makes me think more without feeling frustrating.
