Zone Fighter: Like Ultraman But Meaner

The character Zone Fighter was created by Toho (the company that makes Godzilla films) to compete with Tsubaraya Productions' Ultraman in a similar niche, presumably with the reasoning that if a former Toho employee could make a successful kaiju vs. hero action series, so could Toho.

The result is arguably inferior, as it didn't really go anywhere (although I suspect Toho didn't invest as much energy into it as they could have-if you look at the monster costumes, they look downright stupid next to the contemporary Ultraman series and Godzilla film costumes, with the obvious exception of Godzilla film guest stars, who were all over the darned place-and Zone Fighter was a little too obvious as a direct imitation of Ultraman) and not very memorable other than Godzilla movie kaiju guest starring.

Well, the Godzilla cameos... and the fact that Zone Fighter liked to solve his problems by shooting things repeatedly with rockets and dismembering them with energy crescents until they died.

Of special note: 0:50 (point-blank shot through the gut and out the back), 1:49 (head falls off after a delayed reaction to being shot repeatedly and black blood explosively sprays out), 4:30 (chops off arms), and 4:52 (delayed reaction head falling off).

The decapitations particularly are both gruesome and funny (my sister nearly died after 1:49).

Sure, Ultraman kills his enemies very dead most of the time, but he wears them down with hand to hand combat first, and then usually kills them in a single stroke. Much more humane. (And no, I'm not actually being sarcastic.)

Admittedly, Zone Fighter's way is a bit more batman.

I'd Have Thought They'd Learned Their Lesson

This is a fan-made trailer for a US-made movie that was originally scheduled for this year but is now scheduled for 2014 instead.

If you're wondering where a fan-made trailer came up with a computer-generated Toho-style Godzilla, there's a mild cheat involved: This is a clip from a Japanese film set in the post-war era and which isn't likely to be translated into English because it's too steeped in Japanese culture, and this is an imaginary sequence within the film.

I'm cautiously optimistic about the movie. While I haven't seen much evidence that Hollywood "gets" Godzilla, it's liable to be a nice-looking film.

(I actually found the 1997 Godzilla film better than people gave it credit for, though the best thing to come from it was the tie-in cartoon, which was basically about the benevolent '70s-era Toho Godzilla, but without the restrictions of the original filmmaking style and with mildly more reasonable science in most episodes.)

And when I say "best" I mean "incredibly silly."

Of course, when I say "incredibly silly," I mean it in the most affectionate and endearing way possible. (They didn't have to make less humanoid mecha for a live action series, they just wanted to. So I rather have to forgive them their foibles.)

It's little wonder that anime gets so weird-look at the kind of stuff today's anime creators grew up with.

I mean, really.

Invid's Guide to the Star Wars Universe: Alien Species #41

401. Griddek. The Griddek are known for their belligerence and rigid social structure.

Rating: 1/5. Gee, that's informative.

402. Grueshites. Um, they're aliens.

Rating: N/A. I guess the last one was informative by comparison...

403. Gruvians. Gruvians are surprisingly tall when one considers they've got no legs. Their pillar-shaped bodies have slug-type feet at the bottom. They have rather a lot of eyestalks, two mouths, and four cartoonishly thin arms. (That's like having a four-armed guy have four eyes as well. I've mentioned this sort of thing in the past-I don't think it's bad, just silly.)

They're apparently known for their beer/wine/booze (which is known for having a chemical reaction when a certain drug is put in it-sounds real safe, guys).

Rating: 3/5. Their design is fairly good, even if I have a hard time believing they could escape predators, and the fact that they're apparently known best for producing an alcoholic beverage is amusing.

404. Guineo. Guineo are noted for not being very bright or at least having poor decision-making skills, and thus being restricted to "basic" jobs. They have rather large craniums for menials, though... Apparently, some were guards for a restaurant chain that was actually a front for a drug smuggling ring (specifically, "death sticks," which are an illegal and very dangerous hallucinogenic drug distributed in thin cylindrical containers), and had no idea what they were doing.

Rating: 2/5. I find their appearance interesting, but "dumb" aliens always bother me.

405. Gulmarids. Gulmarids are/were reptilian beings who were driven to the edge of extinction by a single Imperial spacecraft's efforts. (Specifically, it was capturing them en mass and killing them on an individual torturous basis, as a sort of mobile death camp.) The ship's mission ended when a Gulmarid who had escaped hired Boba Fett to take care of things. However, the Gulmarids had limited hope for survival at that time because of their limited population, and who knows where they ended up.

Rating: 3/5. They have an interesting look, although it should be noted that they have hangdog expressions. (Understandable, certainly.)

406. Gungans. I hope you don't expect me to rip on them, because I actually like the Gungans.

Even Jar Jar.

I think the thing I like best about them is that they're a little enclave separated from Galactic society, and they even help suggest where Palpatine may have gotten his anti-nonhuman leanings-the Naboo in general, despite their status as the victims of Episode I, are kind of racist towards them.

Rating: 4/5. They definitely don't deserve the hate. Also, check out the Gungan punk here. That is awesome.

407. Gupins. Gupins are from the Ewoks cartoon. They're apparently shapeshifters, and can only actually shapeshift if someone else visualizes a form for them to take by reading the individual's mind.

Rating: 4/5. Shapeshifting at someone else's whim is an interesting twist on limiting shapeshifting powers, so I'm willing to forgive the fact that they basically look like hobo leprechauns.

408. Gurlanins. Apparently, normally a Gurlanin is a telepathic (among Gurlanins) marsupial dog-thing that terrifies most people and can live to 700. Their voices have a slight lisp that is borderline comical, but are also described as hypnotically smooth.

But they're also shapeshifters, and worked for the Old Republic as spies against the Separatists.

Rating: 4/5. Shapeshifting telepathic devil-dogs work for me.

409. Gutretee. Gutretee are crystalline beings without gender who are immune to blaster fire and eat crystal deposits and other crystalline lifeforms. Their homeworld served the Rebels as a safeworld, but how safe it really was when the Gutretee kept challenging them to single combat is a bit questionable.

Rating: 4/5. That many didn't help the Rebels out of mere standoffishness and whatnot is amusing.

410. Guudrians. From the Guudria system in Wild Space (a region largely unexplored by the wider galactic society), Guudrians apparently aren't themselves technologically sophisticated, but at least one member displayed capacity for learning how to use it, and was a crew member on a starship that explored the Kathol sector, that mass of Lovecraft references. Said member was a pyromaniac who was also a demolitions expert, and was known as "Boom" after his favorite word.

Surely that would end well.

Rating: 3/5. I base this on Boom's appearance (especially his odd nostril placement). There's no way to judge the Guudrians in general-hopefully all of them aren't pyromaniacs...

Kamen Rider OOO Combo Change Medley: Because It Is

While this music video uses Kamen Rider OOO's Combo Change Medley (note: "OOO" is pronounced "ohz"), it's actually something of a general love letter to tokusatsu in general. If you don't recognize everything in it, don't feel bad-I'm a huge nerd, and I don't recognize everything (although I generally recognize the majority of it and would probably be able to find information on it if I really wanted to).

I particularly like the opening, which is an interesting way to frame it without being too obvious it's not OOO/Kamen Rider-exclusive at first.

(And for those of you wondering why I titled this post "Because It Is," it's because of a hilarious exchange in the comments on the video:

Incoherent Commenter: "PuToTyra??? Why Abaranger???" [To translate: "Where's the PuToTyra combo in that opening sequence? Why did you put Abaranger (the series from which Power Rangers Dino Thunder was derived) there?"]

Non-English Speaking Video Poster: "Motifs and Putotira Abaranger is Pteranodon, Triceratops, Tyrannosaurus because it is. ※This document uses the Google translation." ["The motifs of both PuToTyra and Abaranger are Pteranodon, Triceratops, and Tyrannosaurus. ※I don't speak English, so I'm using Google Translate, and there's this weird symbol here."]

That's great.)

Now You Will Have Snail-Based Nightmares

(Blogger, why in the world is your default formatting the "break" function? "Break" is a junk piece of coding that I've never been able to get to work right.

Ah, well, now that I've figured the formatting out, my list of complaints is down to around half a dozen, the big one being that the new interface is a huge, white mess that doesn't feel like a real web form and that my eyes refuse to grok properly.)

Heil Starfish!

Reminder: Starfish Hitler exists.

I finally got an explanation of why they chose a starfish: The Japanese word for starfish is "hitora," which is also roughly how a native Japanese speaker pronounces Hitler. So it's a pun. (According to the video comments, the same series featured Gengis Khan Condor ["Gengis KhanCondor"], and Ant Capone, among others. Incidentally, I posted this because my original Starfish Hitler post had its videos removed ages ago.)

Kamen Rider OOO: Trying to Be Anime

And there's nothing wrong with that. (Note that the series I'm talking about is actually over; I'm really just mentioning it because I found this video the other day while looking up the rather awesome music associated with the series.)

(WARNING: The audio on the video is very loud. I keep my speakers turned to almost the lowest setting, and it's still more than loud enough to make out all the Engrish.)

Granted, Japan still hasn't quite got the hang of CG. I've seen very few Japanese series with better than marginal computer animation. You'd think, with their tech focus and their love of animation, that they'd be better at it, but I've seen non-professional computer animation that outclasses the majority of professional Japanese output in the area.

It's just as well-I'd rather see Japan's traditional animation...

Invid's Guide to the Star Wars Universe: Alien Species #40

It feels like #300 wasn't that long ago...

391. Gosfamblings. A diminutive, quiet people who are incredibly unforgiving. Why? Because if anyone in their society ever runs for political office and loses ever, nobody will ever vote for them ever again.

Rating: 3/5. I like the quiet/harsh dichotomy. Also, there are days when I think they must have the right idea...

392. Gossams. Known for being intelligent and scheming, thus being represented amongst both legitimate merchants and amongst pirates and smugglers. What, no lawyers?

They look rather interesting, anyway.

Rating: 3/5. Mostly for appearance and giving me a chance at the good old lawyers gag.

393. Gotals. Gotals have horns that give them an acute sensory ability comparable to Force-based senses. They don't like droids, as those are "noisy" to this sense. Their ability to sense emotions and people means that they are commonly seen in jobs ranging from bounty hunters to diplomats. That's an interesting resumè.

There was also one in the good old cantina scene.

Rating: 4/5. Gotals are a pretty solid group all in all.

394. Gotiards. Gotiards are described as "simians... with heads that resembled goats," and phrases like that always make me say "gee, having a whole goat for a head would be awkward. Oh, wait, that's not what you meant..."

Anyway, apparently they're huge goat-head gorillas, and the males like slapping each other on the chest by way of friendly greeting. When members of other species try to fit in with them by imitating this, apparently Gotiards are amused.

That sounds rather condescending.

Rating: 2/5. Eh, it's kind of appealing, but animal chimera aliens have been done.

395. Govians. They're from Govia.

Rating: N/A.

396. Graadorians. Nothing is known about the Graadorians themselves; the most important thing about them is that they live on a planet called Graador, where they have to coexist with mutant mynocks and space slugs, both of which apparently are sapient and much more dangerous than the garden varieties. Unsurprisingly, their planet is pretty isolated and was once considered a prime candidate for a Rebel base.

Rating: 2/5. It'd be nice to know something about them beyond all that, but at least there's something.

397. Gran. The Gran are three-eyed cow-faced guys (as cow-faced as anybody with three eyestalks can be, anyway) and are apparently peaceful and eat really large meals, allowing them to go days between meals. If you meet one outside of their society, they're generally exiles and tend to go insane. Nice.

Also, despite being "peaceful," their colony on Malastare subjugates the natives, the Dugs.

Rating: 2/5. They annoy me.

398. Grannan. Apparently, while Grannan are described as "near-humans," they actually have retractable fingers and toes and can breathe "methanogen," whatever that means.

A colony of them was destroyed (sans a single individual, who died taking revenge) by the Yevethan Purge (which I've mentioned on a few occasions in the past).

Rating: 2/5. The retractable digits thing sounds interesting, anyway.

399. Graygl. Apparently, Graygl are another member of the good ol' Iskalonian school, and are helpful to the other members because they can scare off predators called chiaki (which seem to be huge eels equivalent to sharks).

Rating: 3/5. I've mentioned it before, but the Iskalonian school is a very interesting concept overall.

400. Gree. Oh my gosh, it's the Gree!

Some time ago, I stumbled across references to "non-Gree" in the "Gree enclave." This was really frustrating, because this format discourages me talking about guys who are coming down the line except in passing. So what are the Gree?

Gree are adorable octopus-like guys. The advanced age of their civilization means that their technology is largely incompatible and bizarre to the rest of the galaxy.

Oh, yes, and while the time period is called "the most ancient and forgotten days" by their historians, they were contemporaries with those Celestial guys.

Fascinating. They deserve more attention.

Rating: 5/5. Wow, that's easily the best one of the landmark spots has done.

Invid's Guide to the Star Wars Universe: Alien Species #39

381. Glymphids. The Glymphids are from Poo Ploo II. If that joke seems familiar, that's because the Fluggrians come from a closely neighboring moon to the homeworld of the Fluggrians (mentioned here).

They look a little more interesting, and their homeworld's name is better, because it rhymes with itself. Otherwise, they're practically the same-they even have the same status as a podracing species.

Rating: 3/5. That's the same score the Fluggrians got, I suppose. It's a very narrow improvement, really.

382. Gobindi. The Gobindi of Gobindi were wiped out by a plague. They somehow knew how to cure and contain the plague, though (huh?), and made a bunch of big old ziggurats with the information needed to create the cure written on them.

Rating: 2/5. Um, logic fail. I mean, yeah, maybe they just didn't come up with the cure in time, but still.

383. Godoans. [EDIT: Whoops, for the longest time, this didn't have a link!] The Godoans of Godo have some kind of really odd plot around them which involves certain artifacts which are apparently vital components in some kind of lost technology-based device which is somehow vital to their survival.

No, I don't know.

Rating: 2/5. Kind of interesting, but also excessively vague.

384. Golden Sun. The Golden Sun is a hive-minded coral entity. (Or possibly was.) It apparently has/had an enormous power output that the inhabitants of its planet, Sedri, used to power their civilization. However, they cut off its nutrient supply in their efforts to protect it from outsiders, and despite its attempt to contact them telepathically, it seemed that there was no way for it to remedy the situation.

So it might have been starved...

Rating: 4/5. The concept is interesting, the story is rather horrifying.

385. Gorezh. They may have upward-slanted eyes, but the factual accuracy of the article is disputed.

Incidentally, Wookieepedia has one of the funniest fact-dispute notifications ever.

Rating: N/A. I might have given it an extra point for bringing my attention to the fact-dispute notification, but... nah.

386. Gorm. The Gorms are peaceful and primitive reptilians who hunt for food but are otherwise nonviolent. The Empire legalized hunting them for sport; it was illegalized after the Empire fell.

Rating: 4/5. They get an extra point for being an implicitly good-aligned reptilian species.

387. Gormak. The Gormak are a violent, warlike, and fairly populous race that lives on the planet Voss. About 4,000 years before the movies, the Sith Empire (unrelated to the later Galactic Empire that just happened to be ruled by a Sith) tried to conquer Voss, not knowing that there was a less populous and apparently pacifistic but apparently more powerful race, the Voss, living there, who kept the Sith Empire out easily.

Additionally, the Gormak are a rather angry bunch who hate outsiders and also the Voss. Kind of ungrateful...

Rating: 3/5. Anger issues can be used for good entertainment.

388. Gorothites. [EDIT: Whoops, how long has that link been pointing the wrong way?] Among themselves known as the B'Dellyi (singular B'Del), or "people," the Gorothites were slaves to the Empire who were freed when it fell.

Like about half the various nonhuman species.

They're also kind of ugly and have serious posture problems.

Rating: 2/5. Well, at least their heads are an interesting kind of ugly; too bad about all the rest.

389. Gorphs. Gorphs are frog people of rather unclear size (probably larger than Ewoks) who live in a cave on Endor. Their queen wanted an Ewok girl to marry her son.

I am under the distinct impression that the Ewok wasn't too thrilled at the idea.

Rating: 3/5. Just because they have an interesting appearance that I think I'd be interested in seeing in a less cartoony interpretation.

390. Gorum. The Gorum have tails that they use to hang upside-down from trees while sleeping and suck fluids from foods with their tongues. They also have large red eyes.

Guys, do you realize that they've got a number of the basic necessary traits to be vampires?

Rating: 3/5, if only because of the ambiguous vampiric nature thing.

Invid's Guide to the Star Wars Universe: Alien Species #38

371. Ghawem. The Ghawem are "methane breathers," which is nonsense, but whatever. At least at one time, they kept members of another species as slaves. They're large and scaly.

What's more interesting is that apparently some Ghawem use special packs to generate compatible atmosphere for themselves, and a group of pirates used these to modify the atmosphere of a ship they were invading, which made things tough for the boardees.

Rating: 2/5. There's basically nothing on the Ghawem themselves that is specifically interesting, but they get a point for the more interesting idea of aliens in a galactic society using modifications of a ship's atmosphere using their personal breather units as a weapon, more or less.

372. Ghishi. The Ghishi are a race of "warrior-mantids." One was a podracer who was noted as much scrawnier than the average... although this is the only one who's ever made an appearance that I can tell.

Rating: 3/5. I like bug people, even if this isn't an especially interesting instance, but the fact that it's noted right off the bat that the only shown member is unusual gets them a bit extra.

373. Ghostlings. Ghostlings are practically human, but apparently incredibly fragile. Their "exotic" beauty means that they have something of a tendency to get into relationships with humans, and then they die. Not "can die," definitely die. Also, slavers like taking them as slaves because they're rare and beautiful.

Nice, writers. Nice.

Rating: 1/5. Y'know, excessive fragility could potentially be a workable trait for a fantasy race or a genetically engineered race. A science fiction race that naturally evolved? Not so much.

374. Giant algae-beds. Apparently, the Star Wars galaxy is inhabited by sapient algae.

Rating: 4/5, because that's great.

375. Gigorans. These apelike beings are apparently popular slaves.

Rating: 1/5. Meh.

376. Givin. Givin are beings who have skull-like faces, exoskeletons, and the ability to survive for brief periods in hard vacuum, thanks to their planet having atmospheric tides. The Givin needed to be aware of mathematics for their early history because of those tides, and so the modern Givin society exchanges greetings by asking each other to solve calculus equations.

Because all they need to survive in space are air tanks, they maintain big shipyards around their homeworld, Yag'Dhul (which has one of the coolest Star Wars planet names).

Rating: 5/5. I like the Givin. They're very distinctive.

377. Glarsaurs. The Glarsaurs of Gelgelar are large, brutish dinosaur-like aliens. From the sound of things, their homeworld is cold, so at least they probably aren't cold-blooded.

Rating: 3/5. They look reasonably cool, and their "brutishness" may simply have to do with them being primitive.

378. Glassferrans. Glassferrans have three "expressionless" eyes which are capable of independently focusing on different objects.

Rating: 2/5. Big whoop. Although now that I'm thinking about it, it'd be interesting to see an alien species with optical configuration similar to that of most herbivores, i.e. independently mobile and not even fully able to focus on a single object. (Even most herbivore-based aliens have stereoscopic vision, because it's what we're used to.)

379. Gloorags. Gloorags apparently somewhat resemble large snakes, but are covered in tendrils, eyestalks, and respiratory "stalks." The respiratory stalks are what they talk through, and apparently their mental configuration is such that they can easily hold more than one conversation at a time by talking with different stalks.

Rating: 5/5. Goshdarn if they don't sound like the friendliest Lovecraftian abominations I've ever heard of.

380. Glottalphibs. Glottalphibs, also known as 'phibs (heh), are basically water dragon people, complete with blaster-resistant scales and firebreathing. They prefer to keep wet because their scales flake off when their skin dries out.

They also keep watumba bats around because they eat a lot of things that live off of the watumba bats, but it seems like an awfully stupid thing to do, because the watumba bats "eat" Glottalphib firebreath and in the story where they appeared, swooped down a bunch of Glottalphibs' throats and killed them.

That is just stupid.

Rating: 3/5. While the watumba bat thing is egregiously stupid (and loses them at least a point), I have to admit that the Glottalphibs appeal to me overall.

Game Review: Solar Rift

Solar Rift is a game with a cool loading screen.

See the tessellations? Those gradually get filled in as the game loads.

However, it'd be stupid to review the loading screen.

In a nutshell, Solar Rift is a two-dimensional Metroid clone.

It's got some variations-each kind of destructible block and each kind of door can only be affected by one weapon, for instance, and the weapons are, instead of stackable, fixed weapons that play into a sort of elemental wheel. (Light-missile-ice-fire-dark, if you're wondering. Yes, "missile" is an element after a fashion.) There are also special blocks that move only if you shoot them with a specific weapon. This is actually one of the most fun parts of the game, as you can hop on top of one and ride it around by shooting it. (No, in physics terms it wouldn't make sense. However, the blocks look like they're actually pieces of technology that are activated by being shot... sort of. I don't have screenshots because I'm running late and the game takes ten minutes or so to load and traveling through it takes forever.)

But like Metroid, you search for secret items, you upgrade considerably over time, the story involves searching a desolate world for ancient artifacts, and the vast majority of your enemies are nonhumanoid. It also has the same kinds of jumping puzzles as Metroid, and the same "go back and get stuff you couldn't reach before" gameplay style that made Super Metroid so popular back in the day and keeps it popular even now.

My sister remarked that if the protagonist doesn't turn out to be a girl, it will be lame.

Solar Rift has nice gameplay (mostly), good graphics, isn't too buggy, and is free. I can safely say that it will take up at least an hour of your time, and that's if you're a good speed gamer. I recommend it, especially if you're a 2D Metroid fan.

This Was New A While Ago

If you wander the same regions of the Internet I do, you've probably seen the Space Stallions "trailer."

It's popularly called the '80-est cartoon that does not in fact exist. (It has also been called one of the gayest things ever, and that's not meant in the pejorative sense.)

Pretty much.

The most obvious comparison would be to the Silverhawks intro, which has a lot of imagery in common.

There's also parallels to the Thundercats opening (I'd have embedded that, but apparently that's not allowed anywhere on YouTube-and I checked at least four videos).

Then, of course, there's the fact that the leader plays a keyswordtar (keyboard/sword/guitar, or rather, a sword turned into a keytar) while standing on the head of a spaceship shaped like a horse, which is the main thing that gets a lot of people chortling and pointing to the single craziest thing in it.
