  1. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/editorial/2020-05-22/zac-bertschy-in-memoriam/.159803 Okay. I'm not going to take any bullshit here. Zac Bertschy was an executive editor at Anime News Network. Unfortunately, he has passed away. This is a difficult time for a lot of people to process, and it's certainly going to be difficult for me. But purely by association with ANN, I can't imagine Vic's stans will be in any way respectful of this tragedy.
  2. Looks like even KiwiFarms is getting pessimistic about the outcome of the appeal. I feel pretty good about a certain bet I made over this case. Expect comments like these to age very poorly once this is all over.
  3. With just under a week to go, Ty Beard has asked for yet another extension. It will take another month. He claims that it's because Jim Bullock left the firm... except that's a reason he already cited for the previous extension. In better news, Greg Doucette is now eligible to be licensed to practice law in Texas. That's certainly a more admirable result than the constant delays Vic's team has needed.
  4. Yeah, it's frustrating how many good roles he's had. I think a huge part of the support from him comes from people unwilling to separate his roles from who he is a person. Judge Chupp did a great job. Vic's supporters think Chupp was either overly harsh or simply lazy, but he did the bare minimum to ask Vic and Ty that they had a case, and they couldn't back it up. People thought this would be a slam dunk because Chupp is a conservative judge in Texas, but that didn't make a difference. I have no idea what the panel of judges will look like, but I can't imagine it will give Vic a better chance. Sadly, I can't see this ending with him in jail, but at least his career is dead in the water.
  5. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1EN6KdaOLiRwJoKeBcOCTQ1CeSQTP1NAy/view Vic's lawyers have filed for an extension so that their response to the reply briefs can also have the May 20 deadline. James Bullock has also left the firm representing Vic.
  6. https://drive.google.com/file/d/10pxKrHgFQ_fUmISFOfANi8kgsuOMdac8/view Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Vic's lawyers have requested an extension for their cross-appeal brief. The new deadline is May, 20.

    Take this with a grain of salt, but apparently the new firmware update for the Switch adds support for a new hardware model, suggesting it would include a secondary display.

    As much as I love the Switch, I've always wished they would bring back the secondary screen from the DS/3DS and the Wii U, so I'm really hoping this is true.

      Can't wait for people to buy this in bulk and sell for double the value.

  8. Weirdly enough, never really gave Magic much of a try. I've been playing Arena for the past few months, and having maybe a little too much fun with it.

      I'd be interested in hearing someone's perspective of just getting into MtG now, especially when you, I presume, mostly did YGO before? It's a really different game overall.

      Flame Dragon would be proud.

      @LordCowCow Yup, I've pretty much exclusively played YGO. I did try to give MTG a try once, maybe twice many years ago, but I think the difficulty was that YGO mechanics were so ingrained into my head that I couldn't adjust to MTG. I found that the frustration would go both ways, as the people who would try to teach me MTG would often be confused by YGO. I find Arena to be a much easier way to get into it, and I appreciate it for that.

  9. Oh, this is glorious. So, after Funimation terminated Vic, and Viz seemingly let their contract with him lapse, he was supposedly cast in something called Prince Adventures, from Fantasy Soft Entertainment. As it turns out, Vic recently said that he recorded some lines for them several years ago, and never heard back from them. They were just using his name for clout, especially by taking advantage of people disillusioned by Funimation. Fantasy Soft was probably the main hope Vic's fans could cling to, and it turns out they were frauds. Hard to really feel bad for anyone in this situation, really. Vic did a similar act, where he starred in "Star Trek Continues", and William Shatner personally told him to knock it off. Doesn't feel so good when the shoe is on the other foot, huh?

This is the beginning of the end for Vic's appeal.
  11. Kingdom Hearts 3 is just Nomura telling everybody that he is definitely still bitter about Versus XIII getting replaced with FF15, and I can't help but respect the amount of shade he's throwing.

  12. I'm not even mad to lose Harp Horror and Miragestallio if they take Azathot, Colossus, and Mobilize down with them. This meta has badly needed a reset, and Launch absolutely did not deserve to be banned because of Azathot abuse. Although, there's also VFD, so unless I'm missing something, wouldn't that still be a problem with Launch back?
  13. I have a lot of reservations with this, pretty much like I did with Venom. Never saw that, but heard some mixed opinions on it. In general I just can't bring myself to trust Sony with trying to build their own cinematic universe around Spider-Man's supporting cast. At least with Venom, I kind of understand that. He's a character who has long been able to hold his own as an anti-hero in the comics. But Morbius? He has a horrible track record with holding his own solo series. I wouldn't expect him to fare much better in films.
  14. A transcript of November's sanctions hearing was finally released today, though I think this bit in particular highlights something especially delightful. Vic admitted under oath that he has "no direct evidence" of tortuous interference. Just that he believed it to be true. Hmmmmmm...... What was it that some people were saying? That we should wait for what the judge would say, and let the courts decide? Seems like we did, and in the end, Vic completely lost the case, and we have him confirming that he has nothing to back himself up. Vic failed to prove that any defamation occurred, and while he has technically filed an appeal, there is absolutely no chance of the ruling being overturned in Vic's favor.
