POKEMON SWORD AND SHIELD REVIEW ROUNDUP

The reviews are in before Pokemon Sword and Shield hits stores this Friday. Overall, if you're a huge Pokemon fan, things are looking pretty good. Larger outlets are claiming that while this installment of the Pokemon franchise doesn't innovate as much as they hoped it would, it is still a lot of fun and vastly expands our options for future Pokemon titles.

IMPRESSIONS OF THE MANDALORIAN AND ITS ARTWORK (SPOILERS)

The first episode of The Mandalorian has been out for around 24 hours now and we have to say it was amazing! Not only does it perfectly capture why a lot of people fell in love with Star Wars in the first place, but it takes certain story line elements of the franchise in great new directions. Yes, (in typical Star Wars fashion) there were a couple of awkward moments, but overall this new series BLOWS The Last Jedi out of the water and sets a new standard for what all future Star Wars movies and series should aspire to be.
Also, If you saw the end credits artwork and thought "I need that," then search no more. Below is a link to where you can download them all:

DISNEY+ IS LIVE

Edit: everything is working well now. Enjoy your Disney+ stream time!
Although Disney+ has officially launched, good luck watching anything. It seems that Disney did not quite prepare for the influx of people that would be pounding their servers and things are off to a slow start. While you can sometimes view the main dashboard or add things to your watchlist, you might have to wait a few hours, or days, before everything starts running smoothly.
