Can Captain Marvel Overcome the Obstacles Upon Its Fridays Release?….

Captain Marvel is in some serious trouble upon its March 8th release, Marvel and Kevin Feige have a big issue to address and that’s Captain Marvels bad reviews form the media. In the world of whatever you say will be held against you in this era, it’s important you are extremely careful of what you say in social media and on camera. The witch hunt in social media is at an all-time high, and everyone is at risk. When Marvel announces Brie Larson as the newest hero in the Marvel’s Cinematic Universe fans were curious to how she would portray the character.

In 2017 Marvel revealed some artwork of what the character was going to look like and fans responded well to it, as months passed on and onset photos were leaked, the hype for Captain Marvels release was starting to pick up. Finally, when the first trailer was debut fan reception was mixed but did receive 100 million views, the second trailer debuted December 3rd, 2018 during Monday Night Football and once again the trailer received mixed review, while the trailer feature more of the plot and characters involved it didn’t show anything special compared to its predecessors, so the hype behind the movie slightly fell and fans begin to express their concerns.

Some controversy has hit Marvel when it’s lead star Brie Larson made a statement about 40-year white dudes. These comments open the flood gates for the witch hunters to attack the studio and the actress, fans started petitions and boycotts towards the actress and the film, they even labeled her a man hater which some translated to white men only due to the initial comment. Even fellow celebrities joined in on the hunt, one popular statement was by actress Mindy Robinson, she released a tweet saying “Instead of seeing Captain Marvel and it’s a man-hating lead actress this weekend, see Alita: Battle Angel instead. It stars a strong female without all the SJW bullsh*t. #alitachallenge.  A challenge many have jumped aboard, Marvel has been in hot water because of its SJW issues in the Star Wars movies, and fans seem to think Captain Marvel is another way Disney is trying to push the issue. So, with 3 days to go before all eyes are able to see Captain Marvel, Disney and company have some work with its fans. If they continue to let their actors and actresses and directors become loose cannons on social media, trouble will always affect their movies.

While I do think what Brie Larson said was insensitive and uncalled for, the witch hunt on her and the movie is ridiculous, it’s okay to give your opinions and disapproval of what people say, its not right to destroy those same people for saying what he or she has said, we have to get over this somehow. In the end, I know on the 8th I’ll be going to see Captain Marvel because I’m a fan of the character and what Marvel has given us so far,

Ransome talks Thimbleweed Park in latest trailer

Time to solve a murder, the collapse of a cities industry, science gone awry and who took the time to flip toilet paper rolls around throughout the city to cause turmoil with residents. It’s apparently just another day in Thimbleweed Park though as players navigate through 5 playable characters to figure out what exactly is going on in this town.

Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick are back on the adventure scene with ragey clowns, pillow heiresses and a town lost into decay, it sounds just like a lovely tale for the ages. For those longing for a shot of nostalgia that brings classic graphics and deeper gameplay it’s certainly looking like a strong consideration given you can’t trust anyone, even the two people trying to sort out the mess.

As the release is a few months off, let’s just stroll through some footage of what awaits.

Check out the smooth framerate, improved lighting, mechanics and experience as we hold for more news.

SPARCO steps into the gaming chair arena

If DXRacer and Playseat weren’t going it for you in the upper tier levels of gaming chairs, SPARCO is now throwing their hat into the ring. The racing seat producer has expressed their interest in tackling the needs of eSports, sim and everyday players who want a comfy chair during their experience.

SPARCO breaks these down into 3 categories for their product line:

GRIP: Their entry level unit introduces contouring, synthetic leather for durability, lumbar adjustments and reclining features. It has the staples of many entry level products you see on the market for gaming chairs.

STINT: For those working from home or practicing in long sessions the design goals change, aiming to ventilate the backrest through a shift in fabric and cushion materials, their goal is improving blood flow which helps keep users focused and comforted.

COMP: Touted as the Luxury model of the group, the series actually has a split within itself as the C and V. The C series takes a unique presentation with a carbon fiber backrest while the V uses a matte black fiberglass backrest. Both units have DNA from the SPX SPARCO seat.

It’s an interesting pursuit on their part, users have paired racing seats from many companies to their own simulation rigs for a while now, having one with casters certainly would be a nice shift but I don’t know if it’s enough to really grab the market as pricing isn’t available.

As someone who uses a DXRacer King Series I’ve been quite happy with my chair and it’s been well over a year since I bought it. While it’s nice to have durable and comfortable seating that caters to my height, it’s also important to cater to the audience differences as enthusiasts aren’t all 5’7″ 155lbs. Features like the C and V series have are interesting but performance gains from a carbon fiber backrest on a wheeled chair aren’t really anything I can claim exist, it’s more of a vanity thing unfortunately.

We’ll have to see where things take off from here when SPARCO gets their products to retail and understand where this line is going from there.
