Since yesterday afternoon, I've probably put between eight to ten hours into Breath of the Wild. Needless to say, things are going a lot better this time around and I'm really enjoying my time with it. 🎮

I really didn't like Breath of the Wild for a variety of reasons back when it was first released but today I'm giving it another shot and starting a new playthrough. 🎮

Naturally the only major issue I’m having with Android P is verifying my Google Pay info, which I use daily. Looks like it’s back to Oreo until they announce the public beta in May.

I've made it 24 hours. It might be time to flash Android P.

DC Black Label confirmed, books and talent announced

Graeme McMillan, writing for THR:

“Many of our perennially best-selling, critically acclaimed books were produced when we unleashed our top talent on standalone, often out-of-continuity projects featuring our most iconic characters, a prime example being Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight Returns,” DC Entertainment co-publisher Jim Lee explains in a statement about the new imprint. “Creating DC Black Label doubles down on our commitment to working with all-star talent and trusting them to tell epic, moving stories that only they can tell with the highest levels of creative freedom.”

This initial lineup looks great and I'm really excited to see more information and some art from these new books.

DC's really turned a corner for me since Rebirth and this new line, along with the others they've announced for younger audiences recently, shows they're really committed to delivering great stories to readers of all ages and tastes.

The attention to detail in Android P, namely the animations, are encouraging. The Pixel was a huge step forward for fluidity and consistency throughout the system and P looks like it'll push that even further.

It’s becoming painfully clear which of my news sources I’m getting actual value out of and which ones feel the need to explain what a logo looks like when it’s turned upside down.

Tomorrow’s pull list includes debut issues of Gideon Falls and Oblivion Song, plus new issues of Batman, Avengers, and more. It’s a great week for new comic books. 📚

I haven't done a post for Micro Monday in a while but this week I wanted to recommend Michael. He's always contributing to discussions among the community and posts interesting updates on technology, life in Japan, and everything in between.

When it takes you until 4:30pm to dig your car out of the snow. 😧

Black Label: DC launching a new mature readers imprint?

Rich Johnston, writing for Bleeding Cool:

So while DC Zoom and DC Ink offer comics aimed at a child and young adult audience I get the word that something called DC Black Label will feature comics aimed at adults using familiar DC characters.

I have been told to consider them as R-Rated Elseworlds, not impinging on ongoing DC Comics continuity, but reflecting it in whichever way the writers and artists choose.

This sounds amazing. I'm picturing something like Marvel's MAX line from a couple years ago but with the DC a-listers.
