LEAKED DEADPOOL TEST FOOTAGE: FOX SNUFFS R-RATED DEADPOOL MOVIE | CCS After Hours Podcast

Test footage for an R-rated Deadpool movie was leaked at the tail-end of ComicCon 2014, and 20th Century Fox has been hard at work controlling the outbreak in an effort to keep the video from going viral. But thanks to the anarchistic nature of the Internet, the damage has been done. However, there appears to be something far more insidious at work.

CSI MIAMEH | CHESHIRE CAT STUDIOS WEBCOMIC #5

From what The Fuboo understands, CSI Miami has resorted to cheesy puns and tries to take them seriously. She won’t stand for that. =__=

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 MOVIE ANALYSIS | BEYOND PICTURES

Spider-Man is one of the world’s most endearing comic book characters – and perhaps the most mocked superhero movie franchise. From the Sam Raimi trilogy to Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man films, and from Tobey Maguire to Andrew Garfield, B-Mask looks into not why the new movie sucks, but also why the Spider-Man movie franchise just isn’t that captivating.

B-Mask, a long-time fan of the famous wallcrawler, takes a critical look not just at Marc Webb’s latest The Amazing Spider-Man 2 film, but rather the entire Spider-Man movie franchise as a whole. From the misuse of Spider-Man’s love interests and his supporting cast, to the questionable interpretation of some of his most iconic villains, to the outrageous misrepresentation of some of the most pivotal themes and messages of the source material – B-Mask addresses the numerous issues that have plagued the Spider-Man film series for more than a decade now. All of which, unfortunately, have been often overlooked due to the general audience’s desire to see Marvel’s webhead on the big screen. At any cost.

Just drawing for them is a treat for me, but I would say the easiest one to draw is B-Mask.

A few of us older gamers believe that in an age of gaming online with bluetooth headsets, there is something nostalgic and indeed socially satisfying with a handful of gamers crowding around a couch together and taking turns gaming with their friends. The kinship and the competition of gaming with several of your friends cheering you on is something that is lacking in recent years.

Of course, for the short-tempered, it may be for the better.

Going Old School | Cheshire Cat Studios Webcomic #4 - Cheshire Cat Studios

We at CCS have received tons of questions from fellow gamers regarding our thoughts on the latest generation of consoles, the Playstation 4, the Xbox One, and the Nintendo Wii U. Here’s our answer.

Posted 3 months ago

All systems go! After considering a more lucrative hobby as male strippers in Las Vegas, the CCS Video Podcast gang is back in full form.

The MPAA and BBFC movie ratings systems are a touchy topic that B-Mask, CineMax, Kenny and LaughingMan have been eagerly anticipating. The Cheshire Cat Studios gang is no stranger to the controversy surrounding the complete lack of consistency by the US and UK film ratings boards, but what of the secrecy surrounding the very guidelines that the MPAA is sworn to uphold? And what of the political factors and corporate interests that lie at the very heart of the matter? Does the MPAA and BBFC truly uphold high moral standards to provide parents with the tools necessary to shield their children from sex, violence, language and drugs, or does the all-mighty dollar truly have the last word? And what of the disastrous effects that the dreaded NC-17 rating -disproportionately applied to sex and nudity over scenes depicting wanton violence- can have on independent film makers?

B-Mask, CineMax, Kenny and LaughingMan explore the controversies and hypocrisies of the MPAA and the BBFC, and mercilessly eviscerate the advent of the latest movie rating tool championed by pro-feminist social justice warriors: The Bechdel Test. But the question remains: Is there a perfect ratings system that parents can use to determine if a film’s content is suitable for their children, does the MPAA and BBFC do an adequate job of providing consistent ratings, or should art be adherent unto itself and nothing else?

Whatever happened to Crash Bandicoot? It was Naughty Dog who created him, right? In this video, we look at the truth behind the creation of one of video games’ most popular icons, and why Crash Bandicoot not only faded into obscurity, but also found himself handled poorly by his managerial staff — from Universal to Activision, and from Naughty Dog to Radical entertainment.

Nintendo Cuts Sales Projections as Wii U Fails: How to Fix Nintendo | CCS Video Podcast

In mid-January of 2014 Nintendo made headlines by cutting their sales projections for the Nintendo Wii U. Nintendo cuts sales projections from 9 million Wii U units to almost 2.8 million, a 70% cut. Without admitting as such, Nintendo has at least acknowledged that their touch-screen hand held device has officially failed. The backlash of the announcement was a 20% drop in Nintendo’s stock, game developers questioning investing time and money into Wii U games, and becoming the subject for a new Cheshire Cat Studios Video Podcast! What originated as an After Hours discussion between LaughingMan, CineMax and Inverted-Mind regarding the Nintendo Wii U’s failure was deemed too good not to make it a full video podcast.

While the members of the CCS Video Podcast have covered Nintendo’s obliviousness and idiotic decision-making in the past, we’ve never pledged our allegiance to any hunk of plastic. While we all have some level of fondness for Nintendo, we refrain from divisive tribalism and prefer to look at the situations objectively. We have been simply offering our insights on the issues of why the motion controller craze was a passing fad, and why Nintendo’s sheer lack of quality titles has been self-destructive. With that being said, could the Nintendo Wii U have been salvaged into a feasible console for gamers? With the rumors of a new Nintendo console just over the horizon, is the Wii U a fault of the hardware specs? Does the lack of release dates for big name titles like Super Smash Bros, Hyrule Warriors, and Bayonetta 2 contribute to the problem? Find out in our latest episode!

The Legend of Korra Analysis: Elemental Errors? | Beyond Pictures

The Legend of Korra series finished late last year, but new seasons have already been planned well in advance. Some feel that the series so far doesn’t, perhaps, hold up to its predecessor - Avatar: The Last Airbender. B-Mask takes a look at why that might be the case.

The Platinum Age of Television: Nielsen Ratings Vs. Twitter

Breaking Bad, Dexter, Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, Mad Men; Television has never been better. Or has it?

For every action there’s an opposite and equal reaction, and with the rise of every new great television series there’s also a lot more dross making its way into living rooms across the country and abroad. Regardless, one thing is certain, television has made a strong comeback in lieu of movies and video games. But what’s with this so-called “Platinum Age of Television” and how is it measured? Is it that shows are actually getting better in regards to content, or is does it have to do with how that viewership is measured? Do these standard television rating systems even count the growing online audience found on Netflix, Hulu, and other streaming mediums? What about the rise of social media? How much pull does Facebook and Twitter really have in not only attracting television audiences, but also developing fanbases to keep the shows on the air? And while LaughingMan, Kenny, CineMax, and B-Mask lament the endings of a few of their favorite television shows (Dexter, Breaking Bad) they crack open a past issue of WIRED Magazine and debate how much validity this so-called “Platinum Age of Television” has behind it.

All while trying to keep off of the radars of Disney’s deadly attack helicopters.

Capcom’s Financial Trouble and Another Nintendo Alliance | CCS After Hours #6

News of Capcom’s financial difficulties has been the talk of many forums and game journalists. While Capcom claims that fault lies in outsourcing the development of their games to other companies and poor communication with marketing, Kenny and LaughingMan believe that the problem runs deeper. Capcom has not only developed some of the most iconic characters and franchises in video game history, but have been historically notorious to their consumer base; from endless franchise re-releases, to pay-to-unlock downloadable content (DLC) included within the game at initial purchase, to unpopular shifts in gameplay and style in established franchises.

After briefly bringing our fans up to speed with site development and a short tale of LaughingMan’s unorthodox Halloween adventure, LaughingMan and Kenny get to the heart of the matter. Capcom has a long list of successful franchises, and in a gaming climate where software and titles are interchangeable between consoles exclusive access to these titles can be a deciding factor to consumers. And between Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo, one console maker has a long-standing history of benefiting from the exclusive use of Capcom’s franchises: Nintendo. Just as Resident Evil 4 aided in keeping the GameCube a viable choice during the rise of the Xbox and Playstation 2, Nintendo’s Wii U and Capcom could both benefit each other with exclusive, less costly franchises like Demon’s Crest, Darkstalkers, Mega Man, Okami, and others.

But could — or should — Nintendo buy out Capcom?
