Accurate and damn funny
In the first episode of the Pokemon anime we learn that becoming a Pokemon trainer has been Ash's dream for a long time; his room is filled with Pokemon gear, posters, toys, and he eagerly awaits the morning on his 10th birthday so he can finally make that dream a reality. We also quickly learn that Ash has zero clue what the fuck he is doing, even with the most BASIC techniques a beginner trainer should know. I realize he is just a young boy, but it's like being super into animals, leaving home to become a zoologist, and not knowing what a bird is or that animals need food to live.
Gaming has long been an escape from the boring reality of our trivial lives, a necessary although brief distraction from the monotony that suffocates our existence until we finally put that second foot in the grave for good. Here's what some classic moments in gaming feels like!

No, the joke isn’t dead yet
Don’t worry too much about Duncan Jones’ career. He might have just experienced a big swing and a whiff with the disappointing video game adaptation Warcraft, but he appears to be undaunted and prepared to return to form. In fact, his next project, Mute—which should begin shooting next week—will apparently take place in the same cinematic universe as his 2009 debut, Moon, The Hollywood Reporter disclosed. The 45-year-old filmmaker revealed that tantalizing morsel of information in an offhand response to a Twitter query.
If you’re not familiar with Moon, all you really need to know is that it’s one of the greatest sci-fi films of all time (according to about two-thirds of Reddit). The heady film—which stars Sam Rockwell as a contractor in the not-all-that-distant future who lives alone on a helium-mining moon ...

C. Martin Croker—the Adult Swim animator and voice actor who played both Zorak and Moltar on Space Ghost Coast To Coast—died over the weekend, and as a tribute to him, Adult Swim aired the Coast To Coast pilot on Sunday night. Unfortunately for people interested in catching up on Cartoon Network’s cult-classic talk show spoof, though, the rest of the episodes are rather difficult to come by these days thanks to the DVDs going out of print. Now, to make up for that, Adult Swim has made almost every episode of Space Ghost Coast To Coast available to stream on its website for free. You don’t even need a cable provider or a login.
The only catch is that not every single episode of the series is available, as there are some gaps here and there in most of the seasons. It’s unclear why some ...
Bad news gets WORSE
The Great British Bake Off has a winning recipe, with knowledgable judges, pleasant contestants, and silly hosts forming one of the fundamentally uplifting television shows on air. But with the show moving from BBC to Channel Four, hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc will step down, reports The Guardian. A spokeswoman confirmed that the duo won’t be returning when the show switches channels, which goes into effect next year. The hit show is currently broadcasting its seventh season on the BBC.
“We made no secret of our desire for the show to remain where it was... we’re not going with the dough,” Perkins and Giedroyc said in a statement to BBC News. “We’ve had the most amazing time on Bake Off, and have loved seeing it rise and rise like a pair of yeasted Latvian baps. We’re not going with the dough. We wish all the ...
…and watch out for those birds.
This season is fire
Variety is reporting that FX’s critically beloved Fargo has scored another high-profile resident, with 10 Cloverfield Lane and Scott Pilgrim star Mary Elizabeth Winstead signing on for the Midwest crime anthology’s upcoming third season.
Winstead joins a cast that already includes Ewan McGregor, playing a pair of twin brothers, and The Leftovers’ Carrie Coon as a practical, down-to-earth police chief. Winstead will apparently be playing a schemer of some sort, with her Nikki Swango—take a bow, Fargo character namers—described as “a crafty and alluring recent parolee with a passion for competitive bridge playing.”
Winstead currently stars on CBS’s head-exploding political satire, BrainDead, which just wrapped up its first season. Her other recent TV work includes A&E’s The Returned, playing a woman whose long-dead fiance returns from the grave, and PBS’s Civil War-era period drama Mercy Street.
STOP IT! STOP IT! STOP IT!
It’s been a rough week for fans of The Great British Bake Off—the last bastion of decency in competition television—with news coming that pun-loving hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc would be departing the show when it moves from the BBC to Channel 4 next season. Now, that soggy bottom has gotten soggier still, with rumors continuing to build that judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood might also not be making the jump.
According to The Sun, a source close to the show has said that Berry and Hollywood are weighing their options (presumably in a professional, gentle, welcoming manner). “Mary and Paul believe the show works because of Mel and Sue,” the source said. “It’s always been the four of them together. They are all really close and constantly hang out together in between filming.”
If Berry—an author of over 70 cookbooks—and bread ...

There are so many collective feelings in Overwatch that we wouldn't be able to cover all of them. From frustrating healers, to your entire team wanting to be Hanzo, we all know those moments. Thankfully, the twitter account Overwatch.TXT is doing a great job of collected those moments for us. Here are some of our favorites.

Alongside the new Doctor Strange trailer and Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 teaser shown during Marvel’s Comic-Con panel in July was a quick featurette explaining what Thor was up to while Captain American and Iron Man were beating the snot out of each other in Civil War. Presumably directed by Thor: Ragnarok’s Taika Waititi, the short is a mockumentary-style tour of Thor’s attempts to see what life is like for mortals. Apparently, since the last Avengers movie, the newly single Thor has moved in with a guy named Darryl in Australia, and he’s very annoyed that neither Steve Rogers or Tony Stark seem to want him on their Civil War team.
The whole thing is simply delightful, and it has a lot of fun with the larger mythology of the Marvel Cinematic Universe—for example, Thor has a big board where he’s sketching out ...

If you haven't watched Blizzard's new animated short yet, you should probably do that. It stars Bastion, the endlessly hateable turret robot, as it awakens from a years-long slumber after a huge battle. Though Bastion seems to have an appreciation for nature, the poor omnic struggles with his past as a machine of war. The internet, as you might have guessed, has feelings about this.
ok well bastion video made cry, so, here we are, in this day-- Cohen is a ghost (@skullmandible) August 18, 2016
I love bastion so much, 1 of my favorites, but seeing him in game is just pic.twitter.com/sDQg90YH2N-- trip (@shmegolas) August 18, 2016

According to the new Overwatch short, whenever you go into turret mode as Bastion, you're basically making a robot have 'Nam flashbacks-- Tristan Cooper (@TristanACooper) August 18, 2016
So much Bastion suddenly! People.. I mean.. It's Bastion. BASTION. The worst thing about Overwatch, deserving of eternal pain and hellfire..-- Robin Torkar (@pixlpit) August 18, 2016

French race walker Yohann Diniz is leading today’s 50k, but his competition hasn’t been a, uh, cakewalk? It looks like Diniz either has severe gastrointestinal issues—at times shoving a sponge down his pants to soak up wet fecal matter, and then throwing the sponge off toward the crowd—or stuck a bunch of chocolate bars in his underwear for energy, and they melted.
