Detective Pikachu might actually become a case of a movie being so hilariously bad that it's good again.
I think it's hard to take a live-action movie of Pokemon seriously, especially with how terrifying/weird some of them look. However, if they take that to their advantage and actually don't try to be serious about it, it can still be a great and fun movie.
Movies like Sharknado were successful because they were so badly done you had to laugh. But that wasn't the only reason because there are many movies like that and they're just bad. The reason Sharknado was actually enjoyable to me was that you could feel that all parties involved did not take it seriously but rather just as it is: a bad movie with a ridiculous plot and fairly bad CGI. And that makes it good because the moment you feel that, it becomes a parody of itself without trying to be mean or being upset about the fact that it will never be a truly profound piece of art.
If Detective Pikachu does it right, it can also do it like Deadpool. (And not because Ryan Reynolds is also Pikachu's voice actor. This different, a bit less child-friendly image of a caffeine addicted Pikachu is refreshing rather than trying to copy a game.)
Let's be real. Live-action movies based on an anime or games with an anime-esque look have rarely ever worked out, apart from romance dramas perhaps. Having Pokemon, the epitome of child-friendly, translated into such a setting would likely be off-putting if they attempted that with a serious mindset.
The best they can do to appeal to adults (which make up a considerable amount of Pokemon fans even if Nintendo tries to ignore that at times), is to be aware that some of this just looks ridiculous in a realistic style and act on that. And it seems like they actually did that so far. I think there's a reason Detective Pikachu was chosen and not one of the main games or even a movie/the anime series. It's a spin-off with arguably a less grand fanbase while still having a story to follow and the potential to make it adequate for both adults and children.
I think I will actually watch it with the expectation that it will be a horrible movie but also with the potential to be a great horrible movie. And if not, I will at least have seen around an hour or so of a fluffy Pikachu with a Deadpool voice.

More and more leaks... I'm just going to browse incognito from now on. I don't think I've gotten too spoiled since it was one sentence out of context where I'm not even sure it's from the game or just some video title so it's still good.
Clearing the watch history didn't work out for me, probably because I've subscribed to content creators which post KH stuff even when I haven't watched a video in weeks and clicked a lot of cat videos and the like. And I don't want to remove my subscriptions for that. But incognito mode works fairly well. I have to turn it on again from time to time but it does work.
One more week. Come one, time, run faster. =_=

Seems like more and more people are getting their copies early, which is why I'm probably avoiding Twitter, Youtube and the like earlier than originally planned.
To be honest, I could probably get it through connections as well but I don't see a point in this case. I want to finish the game when the epilogue is already out and not before and then having to wait a few more days to complete the experience. It would feel lacking without the epilogue included and not really satisfying.
When I start on the 29th (or maybe a day earlier), I likely won't be finished by the 30th (if I am, then the game is too short ) so that's fine but if I were to start now, it's possible for me to get to the ending before.

I just saw a KH3 commercial on TV for the first time.
It feels so real now and so close...

Today was the first time Youtube recommended me leaks. And not one but many despite a lot of security measurements being taken on my part to prevent it. Some of them were just recently posted but luckily, I don't feel like I have been spoiled since I didn't see much before removing it from my feed.
I didn't even search anything KH-related recently. It just came out of the blue, without a warning because the title was creatively working around my filters.
Stay safe, folks. It seems like the next few weeks will be hard. But I guess we all knew that. Though I still feel I'm not prepared.

KH3 releases in one month in Japan... Kinda crazy to see how fast time flies. Only a week left until the new year and then we only need to get through January.
It will also be a tough time for a lot of us. At least I imagine so, considering there might be more leaks to avoid and spoilers from early received copies revolving around the internet to block as well since each day closer to release makes it more likely. Not to forget those 4 days in-between the Japanese and global release date.
It's always strange how the last few weeks are perceived to be the longest and time still flies by so fast, as if December is over before it even began.
I will miss this hype after KH3. It will probably be a while until a new game will be announced and even then it might not generate the same excitement as Kingdom Hearts 3 did. Which is why I want to cherish this last bit as much as I can, even if the wait will become more and more painful.
In that regard, a Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it and to those who don't I also wish you the best for the last week of 2018.

So I saw on a tweet that Tron was announced only a month before KH2 was released. So it's not impossible for another Disney world to be announced. It would probably just be a less popular or not a mainstream one.

With all the trailer hype, I'm still immensely bothered by those glowing walls. It feels like nobody is talking about this anymore as if it's suddenly fine. It's not. It's super distracting and honestly, I don't need the game telling me that. It can establish that once in a tutorial stage but that's it. Tell me I can run up almost anything flat and I will try that if nothing else works. There's nothing wrong with letting people figure out things by themselves, especially if a game is rated 10+. It's not like someone would suddenly miss a wall to progress, considering Sora is running up on his own without pressing any buttons.
This isn't like other games that tell you which objects can be taken with a subtle, more outstanding color or other hints, especially when they're easy to miss otherwise.(Although that can often be adjusted.) But if the 3 walls caging me in all glow then this would be a major deal-breaker. They're doing a great job with the environments and burying that beneath a layer of an unnatural wavy glow destroys that. That is especially noticeable in Toy Story and also BH6. It simply doesn't fit into the surroundings.
I sincerely hope that this can be turned off in the settings. I'm not 5 anymore, I know how to use environmental techniques if the game tells me once. Had no problems with Flow Motion either. I don't need to be taken by the hand to such a degree that I won't figure out how to move on if all the walls don't scream at me to push against them. Imagine if games like Mario 64 did that. The entire game would be shining.
