NOTHING IS DONE: JERROD'S S2000

Meet Jerrod, a southern boy with a waifu complex. Jerrod is connoisseur of all things whiskey, S2000, 80s-90s Japan, and Cowboy Bebop. So naturally he fits right in with our group of friends. He is quiet and conserved, but busts out some big moves when it comes to his car; recently fitting his front end with a Spoon V2 front bumper and some YAGI carbon side splitters. He is going to plaster a Voltex rear diffuser under the back to round out the aero and then continue his trek towards more mechanical grip.

Jerrod also frequents our Circuit Days at NCM and is progressing nicely as a driver, becoming smoother each time he hits the course. It is always refreshing to see clean cars get beat on at the track. Follow him on instagram @tsukiko6287.

EDENSZERO: DEBUT CHAPTER

The creator of Fairy Tail has taken a swing at a space/science fiction manga. Head over to crunchyroll to read it!

The main characters are Rebecca (clearly Lucy) and Shiki (very much Natsu). Happy makes a reappearance, making me wonder if the universe is shared with Fairy Tail. And based off the artwork, we are going to be introduced to Erza 2.0 and more.

I read through the first chapter, and wasn't blown away, but also am excited to read/see more of Hiro Mashima's work. If they make this an anime, they better damn well finish the freaking series this time around.

WEKFEST CHICAGO 2018

Wekfest Chicago 2018 was held at Navy Pier right on the lake. This venue was the very clean and we are happy to hear that Wekfest is making this their home in Chicago. It was easy to get in and out of and there was plenty to do which I believe resulted in a huge turnout in not only great builds but spectators. We will definitely be back next year. 

The only complaint about the venue I have is the lack of power outlets. They wanted to charge us $500+ to have an electrician come plug in a converter so we could charge our iPads and such. (No thanks, we took shifts running all the way upstairs to charge devices as needed.)

POKEMON LETS GO TRAILER

The need for a Nintendo Switch has never been higher on my priority list. This game looks like an absolute blast. The Pokemon Let's Go game looks extremely immersive especially with the merging of Pokemon Go app. I will definitely choose Eevee edition. I believe this is another amazing step in the right direction by Nintendo/Game Freak. They also have plans to release a full on RPG in 2019, which will most likely break the universe. I along with billions of other Pokemon fans have been crying for literal decades for a real RPG/MMO.

NINTENDO RE-RELEASING NES CLASSIC IN JUNE 2018

Currently extremely hard to find, the NES really got the ball rolling in the 80s when it came to consoles. Giving us 8bit classics like Mario, Zelda, Donkey Kong, Kirby, and much more. I played the NES and then SNES as my first consoles as a kid, so I am super excited for the re-release and miniaturized version of the NES Classic.

SHADOW OF COLOSSUS PS4 REMASTER / FIRST IMPRESSION

While I never played the original Shadow of Colossus on PS2 back in the day, I always heard great things. So when I heard it was being remastered for the PS4 I *HAD* to try it out.

From the opening scene, I could understand the hype. The graphics, while not Square Enix level, are outstanding and the ability to move the camera during cutscenes is fun.

I immediately jumped in after listening to a mysterious 'god' voice telling me I need to kill some random Colossi in order to save this random woman.
