Jetset Radio On Spotify!

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Jetset Radio. It's one of my top 3 favorite Dreamcast titles and, well, it's just amazing. One of my favorite parts was of course the amazing soundtrack. For those of you who hold a similar opinion of Jetset Radio (and it's music) I've got good news for you. The soundtrack is now on Spotify. Enjoy!

New Powerpuff Girls Look Just as Badass as I Remember

Full disclosure. I'm a huge fangirl of pretty much anything Cartoon Network produces. Yes, even that show that you think is really shitty with subpar humor? I've probably binge-watched the entire thing. But few shows stuck with me as firmly as The Powerpuff Girls.

I want to make one thing perfectly clear.

I

Love

This

Show

I dragged my boyfriend to the 2002 movie (shocked he didn't break up with me on the spot for that one). I've owned not one, but TWO copies of "Heroes & Villains" the CD with music from the TV show. And when they first announced the Powerpuff girls reboot last June, I didn't look down and sneer at it for tweaking the show that I loved so much. I opened my arms ready to once again embrace the little girls composed of sugar, spice, and everything nice.

Assuming you're not hip to all the news about the reboot, here are the things you need to know:

  • The new series will also feature Tom Kenny reprising his role as the Narrator/Mayor.
  • Cartoon Network decided to recast all of the female leads (much to the chagrin of Tara Strong). BUT here's who we do have voicing the girls; Amanda Leighton (The Fosters) as Blossom, Kristen Li (a supporting voice actor on Monsters University) as Bubbles, and Natalie Palamides (The Brave Cat) as Buttercup.
  • The reboot will be produced by Nick Jennings ("Adventure Time") and Bob Boyle ("Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!").
  • The new series is slated for a 2016 release.
  • A new trailer has been released teasing a bit of what we can expect from the reboot.

Despite the original cast not returning, I still find myself super excited for the return of sugar, spice, everything nice, (and of course, that super special dash bit of Chemical X).

How will you be playing Lara in Rise of the Tomb Raider?

No Caption Provided

We spent 3 hours playing Rise of the Tomb Raider, which (apparently) "packs in a ton of tutorial and story setup--but this isn't a bad thing."

Alexa Ray wrote an article on the updated version of Lara's skill tree:

Rise of the Tomb Raider is a playground, and the more you do, the better you do by Lara. Fighting enemies and crafting earn Lara skill points, which can be attributed to abilities on three separate branches of Lara's skill tree: the Brawler, Hunter, and Survivor. Each tree is designed to make her tougher in a different way, and there's enough variety in each to make you really feel like the Lara you grow is "My Lara."

How will you be playing Lara in Rise of the Tomb Raider? Stealthy Survivor, Heroic Hunter, or a Bad Ass Brawler?
