Toy reviews come a dime a dozen, but there are only a few really worth watching. Unfortunately, I wouldn't call mine any good, but there are a few Filipino toy reviewers that I really look up to. You've got guys like Dennis "Slangards" Domingo and Dominic "Advocate Pinoy" Dimagmaliw. And today, I think I'll add a new guy to that list of awesome Pinoy toy reviewers.
Today, I watched Japoskee's review of Stealth Tech Donatello. It is literally one of the most entertaining toy reviews I've seen in a while. I was laughing my ass off at some parts of it. And not only was it funny, it was actually really informative. What's different about his review is that it's completely in Tagalog, and it just works. It's awesome. I don't think it'd be as effective if I did it that way, and I'm glad I didn't because I'd have him to compete with.
I asked for permission to post his video here on GeekOut, and he accepted. So without further ado, check out his video below.

The one thing I've always frustrated me with the PS3 was the inability to record gameplay or even take screenshots. If you wanted to capture any screenie or footage, you'd have to hook your PS3 up to a capture card, which doesn't capture in HD, if I'm not mistaken. I recall it was due to their harsh anti-piracy tactics. I guess Sony peeps were afraid people would just capture HD video off Blu-rays being played.
It was something people did not like one bit. In the age of social, where people share practically every little thing, the option to be able to create and publish should be open to everyone. PC users could do it without any issue, and it would be the platform of choice for most livestreamers, Twitchers and YouTubers.
The engineers and designers at Sony listened to us, and gave us exactly what we wanted. Not only did they make it easy to publish and save screenshots, they built editing software directly into the PS4! And I love it!
Enter, the Playstation 4 SHAREfactory!

What I love about the current direction of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that they're slowly taking relatively unknown superheroes (at least, unknown to non-comic book readers) and making them household names. And they're doing it the right way - by treating their characters right. The reason why people fall in love with these characters in the first place is because of who they've been built up to be over the years in thousands of pages of comic books. Marvel Studios takes that and transforms it into something magical for the silver screen. I mean, no comic book reader would've ever imagined that Rocket Raccoon would be as famous as he is now.
Ant-Man's announcement came in as a pleasant surprise for those who knew how awesome Ant-Man's character can be. Comic book fans were all "OH MY GAWD Is it Pym?! Please let it be Pym! Let him join the Avengers in the third movie! OH ULTRON! HE CAN CREATE ULTRON! Oooh! Ooh! I hope Scott Lang makes an appearance!"
Non-readers said "Great new Marvel movie! Wait... who is Ant-Man?"
For the benefit of the non-reader, here's what you have to know about Ant-Man before the movie hits theaters this July, 2015.
Who is Ant-Man?

One of the biggest stories surrounding the upcoming 'Man Of Steel' sequel, 'Batman vs. Superman: Dawn Of Justice,' is that Wonder Woman is joining the story. Naturally this idea has been celebrated as the first appearance of a full-fledged female superhero in modern film, as well as a general expansion of DC's cast of characters on the big screen. For those reasons, many will probably love Wonder Woman no matter how she's depicted by director Zack Snyder and his crew. But beyond her mere existence, here are a few reasons the new Wonder Woman character will rock.
To begin with, there's the fact that the creators of the DC films are under a great deal of pressure to deliver a compelling character. Not only are fans ready for a female superhero, but according to Variety, Gal Gadot (the lucky actress who snagged the role) has signed for three movies in total. Those three movies are expected to include the aforementioned 'Dawn Of Justice,' the eventual 'Justice League,' as well as a standalone 'Wonder Woman' film that will presumably delve more thoroughly into the character's backstory. With this kind of deal in place, Wonder Woman will have to deliver in her initial appearance in order to drive up interest for the ones to come!
