Last week, I asked for input about which game I should play to review next. The results are in: the next game is the original Dragon Quest in its mobile incarnation, originally released in North America as Dragon Warrior. Details on the voting methodologies and the next six games in sequence follows for those who are interested. All options listed were mobile games of the JRPG variety.

Meanwhile, on Earth, Actor Topher Grace has edited The Hobbit into the two-hour film it probably should have been, to much online applause.
See both while you can.
For fun, below: the recent Aquaman trailer and an amusing fan revision of it:

The next round of voting takes place here, and reveals that I planned out this tournament months before the new episodes of Doctor Who were revealed to be coming out in October, not April.

Variety has more details, but the short version is that the film rights to X-Men, Fantastic Four, and their related characters now go to Disney (who owns Marvel comics). The price tag? Just $71.3 Billion. No big deal.
Let the wild speculation begin! Doctor Doom as the next “Big Bad?” Magneto? Galactus?
Personally, I’m just holding out for a Firefly/Serenity ride at Disneyland (“Oh God, oh God, We’re All Gonna Die: The Ride”). Fingers crossed.

I enjoy gaming, but I don’t have a lot of time for console games these days. If I plan to review something, I’m more motivated to make the time to spend on it, so I’m opening up voting so our readers can decide what I will review next. I do most of my gaming on my iPad mini, and for this, I’m focused on the “buy once, own the whole thing, one player RPG” style of gaming. (I still play games like Final Fantasy: Record Keeper every day, but I want to review an entire game, so I want to stick to complete ones, and ones where I don’t miss out on something if I have to set it aside for a week.) The actual voting takes place here, and the weighting of the votes will be explained below.

Okay, it has some serious limitations and the price tag is a tad hefty, but Richard Browning’s outfit is the closest we’ve come to a real life Iron Man suit, and you can have one, if you can spare the cash.
True, the suit is not a brand new item (you may have read about the prototype last year) but its more impressive flight-capacity and hypothetical availability appear to be.

It’s been a while since my last video game review, because I don’t want to review incomplete games, I do most of my gaming on mobile these days, and so many mobile games drag out the stories and never actually wrap up. This one is different, so I thought I’d review it now that I’m finished it.
