#TBSkyen is a comic artist and youtuber, who mostly talks about #characterDesign in video games, especially (but not limited to) #leagueoflegends. This is the recording of a live streaming he made last week where he goes through each of the ~140 characters of the game and ranks them by the quality of their character design.
It's long (4.5h), it's very niche/specific (character design specifically on League of Legends), but it's the stuff I love: i love talking about character design, I love talking about diversity and representation, I learned a few trivia about LGBT-coded characters I wasn't aware of. Also, I like how TB Skyen entertains, he's very natural and unstructured, he has a good english (not a lot of accent and a very large vocabulary for someone for whom english is a second language - he's danish or something like that).
So, I'd recommend you to watch te video, because I'd LOVE to have someone to talk about this stuff with, even though I guess it's not easy to find someone who can digest this xD
I don't have really much to say, the movie was enjoyable though the story was quite underwhelming. It's definitely a movie for kids, the story is very simple and the plot twists are predictable. Ryan Reynold's Pikachu steals the show, he had me smirk more than a few times, and I quite liked the main character too. The other characters are rather flat and I couldn't really sympathize with them.
I only saw the first trailer and thus went to the cinema almost spoiler-free, and it was a nice surprise to see Mewtwo in the movie. I also guess avoiding the spoilers did help me avoid the few (bland) plot twists of the film. And I loved the hell out of Ditto, its scene in the last act was fantastic, probably one of the things i enjoyed and will remember the most :D
But the reason I went to the cinema was to see two hours of CGI Pokemon doing staff in the real world, and I wasn't disappointed. The CGI wasn't always good, but the pokemon themselves felt believable and integrated into their settings. The "splash page" scenes of the city in particular are packed full of pokemon in the background doing stuff, and I hope this movie makes enough money that the producers can make a franchise out of it with more budget at their disposal. I would have liked to see even more variety of pokemons, some do feel repetitive but I guess it was just a matter of budgeting, I guess it costs a lot to create a complete CGI model for a pokemon you only see for a few seconds in the background.

They made a playlist and other creators can submit their video to be added to the playlist. I was going through it when I stumbled upon this video. It's by a kid, but it's so passionate and kinda good it's incredibely cute.
I don't know how many mcu #marvel nerds are out there, but if you are, have a look at this playlist :)
Since we're on the fediverse/federation I guess there are a lot of people who are more knowledgeable than me on the topic, I'd like to hear what you think about the topic?

A big shoutout to @Wilhelm Fitzpatrick for this info: basically, both on the federation (diaspora) and fediverse (mastodon), if a post is created, it's broadcast to everyone who follows the creator of the post, and thus it appears on the hubs/servers the followers are on.
So let's say I create a post here with my friendica account. Both @Rafu 🇮🇹 :heart_pan: (on tabletop.social, a mastodon hub) and @Wilhelm Fitzpatrick (on joindiaspora.com, a disapora hub) follow me. This means that my post is now visible on both their hubs. Specifically, if I add a hashtag to my post, that hashtag is now on their two hubs, and can be searched/filtered for. And if they post (or reshare) the hashtag, it will spread over to all hubs of their followers, and so on. It's not retroactive, i.e. my post won't show up on their follower's hubs, but those followers could decide to follow me and if I made another post (or re-shared my own post some time later), it will show up (and be discoverable) on their hubs too.
This actually sounds more complicated than it is. Basically, while it's not perfect, hashtags do propagate through the fediverse and federation.
- make a public post with the #gplusRPG hashtag
- follow the hashtag itself so that other people's posts show up in your stream
- follow new people
- from time to time make the public post again, so that it reaches farther and farther :D
A big thanks also to whoever added the #gplusRPG hashtag to the #3x3RPGs posts (I think it was @Michael Miller?). The hashtag has piggy-backed the post's success, and I find the idea very good because #3x3RPGs is a beautiful way to introduce yourself to other RPG players. Good job!
Michael also posted the hashtag over to twitter, thanks for that too! :D
