Gamer 2.0 starts went Marinette is struggling with her daily tasks and wants to play video games. She has a schedule but it’s was too much to handle. Her Dad Tom Dupain-Chang wants Marinette to play video games with her. Marinette refuses and dumbfounded about for day to day activates. Tom and Sabine plays video games much as Marinette wants too.

The goal is destroy the characters akuma item or ring out.
Brawlhalla just brought in Finn and Jake from Adventure Time also Princess Bubblegum. For those who don’t know what Brawlhalla about. The game is similar to Super Smash Bros but with two types of weapons. Each character have two weapons such as bow, sword, hammer and two pistols. The main goal is to knock your opponent off the stage. Brawlhalla have some third-party characters like Hellboy, Rayman and Shovel Knight. Before E3 2019, there is a first cartoon crossover and that’s Adventure Time. I think there should be more Brawlhalla cartoon crossovers in the future. That’s why I have a list on what cartoon properties should be in Brawlhalla. Like Super Smash Bros Ultimate with their wishlist of characters. I have mine own top 5 list that legends I want. Without further ado, let’s get right to the list.
5. Star vs The Forces of Evil
Star Vs the Forces of Evil is a cartoon developed by Darcy Nefcy. The show finished airing on Disney XD and was a fantastic show. Star Vs the Forces of Evil was inspired by anime magical girl genre. Star Butterfly would be a great character. Marco can use a sword and fist. Star in the other hand could use a axe. The axe can be her magical wand and her secondary weapon is a bow. Star and Marco could be crossover skins. There would be other characters like Tom, Kelly and another I can’t remember. These characters could be a fun choice for the game.
4. Samurai Jack
Samurai Jack is a perfect fit for the game. If you don’t know about Samurai Jack is. The show aired in Cartoon Network back in early 2000s. Samurai Jack just ended it’s final season around 2017. The plot is about a Samurai warrior named Jack on a quest to defeat demon Aku. Aku sends him to the past and hoping to get home. Jack would utilize a sword and bow for weapon. He would be a crossover skin for Koji. That’s enough say, maybe Aku, Scottish Man and Ashe would be playable. I think Blue Mammoth Games should reach out to Genndy Tartakovsky for his character.
3. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power
She-Ra would be a great addition to the roster. If you don’t know what She-Ra is. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power is a reboot of the 1985 Filmation series She-Ra and the Princess of Power. The plot of the show is similar to Filmation series. Adora is raised by Hordak and was taken as a child. She lead The Horde along with her best friend Catra. With the help from Bow and Glimmer, Adora fight against The Horde. If Adora was in the game, she would have a sword and a bow. Speaking of Bow, he would have the exact weapon. I don’t know about Glimmer and Catra. She-Ra and the Princesses of Power would a good choice.
2. Steven Universe
Steven Universe is another excellent choice in my opinion. If you don’t know about Steven Universe. The show is about a boy named Steven Universe. Steven finds out about his past and being a gem. The show is developed by Rebecca Sugar and highly popular in Cartoon Network. Steven Universe characters is be in this game. There is Garnet who has fist and Pearl with a staff. Amethyst I don’t know what weapon she would have. I don’t know how will they incorporate Steven’s shield weapon. We will have to see about that. I would think Steven Universe would be a good choice.
1. Miraculous Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir
Miraculous Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir is a slightly choice of mine. If you don’t what Miraculous Tales of Ladybug and Cat Noir is about. The plot is about two teenagers in Paris, France fighting against a villain named Hawk Moth. Hawk Moth sends akumas to get Ladybug and Cat Noir Miraculous. The show is very popular in France and developed by Thomas Astruc along with Jeremy Zag. Ladybug would have a yo-yo like orb for her primary weapon. Her secondary weapon is a sword. Cat Noir weapon could be his claws. Secondary is his staff that would fit. Hawk Moth weapon would be his cane and sword. Queen Bee could use her venom like a orb and fist. Rena Rouge and Carapace I don’t know their weapon. In my opinion I hope Ladybug would make an appearance.
Other Brawlhalla Cartoon Crossovers
There is some Brawlhalla cartoon crossovers that not on the list. I want to mention RWBY, Xaolin Showdown, Invader Zim, ThunderCats and more. Blue Mammoth Games doing big time with Brawlhalla. I am hoping to see more crossovers in the future. Hoping to do a Super Smash Bros vs Brawlhalla blogpost someday. Overall, I enjoy the Adventure Time Event in Brawlhalla. Although, I didn’t the characters but did purchase All Legends pack. I don’t understand why I didn’t get them. Oh well, it’s was kind of a rip-off for me. That being said, Brawlhalla will continue to grow as a game. I still enjoy Brawlhalla and wait to see more coming days
Captain N the Game Master is a 80s cartoon based on NES property. The overall plot is a boy named Kevin and his dog named Duke. Both of them are transported into a world called Videoland. Videoland is being taken over by Mother Brain (Metriod). Lana the king’s daughter uses the power glove to summon Kevin. She is not alone, there is Simon Belmont from Castlevania. Mega Man and Pit from Kid Icarus. While in Videoland (a world named after video games), Kevin is armed with a NES controller and Zapper. NES controller is on his waist and have abilities. NES controller can pause, fast forward and jump. Zapper can pixelize enemies and have limited ammo. Kevin and the gang are called N Team. Together Kevin and the N Team warp through wolds. Stopping Mother Brain from talking over Videoland.
I realize this is based on 80s NES era. Simon Belmont and Mega Man are not from Nintendo. Captain N show does have some Nintendo characters like Link. Note: There is no Mario or Samus Aran in this show. Other character like Dr. Wily, Ganon and other villains appeared in this show. Lets break down the main cast. Kevin is from the real world along with Duke. He is the typical hero from another world. Duke is Kevin friend and trusted sidekick on the show. Lana is the princess and not damsel in distress. Simon Belmont is a airheaded buffoon that loves himself and trying to date Lana. Mega Man always say Mega during his dialogue. Pit is very small and like arcus after end of this sentence. I don’t like Simon Belmont and other character portrayals.
What is the problem with video game live action movie adaptations?
Video game live action movie adaptations becoming stalagmite throughout the years. In the early 80s movies have been booming with action-packed, drama and love story. When it time to make a video game adaptation. Developers get little time to prepare it. They want to release it before or after the film. Normally, these adaptions get mediocre reviews and little recognition. Directors and producers cut some parts of the source materials. Want to create their own iteration of the film. The first movie adaptation is Super Mario Bros film (a very bad one). Super Mario Bros is based on the same name of the Nintendo game. In the movie, there is no Mushroom Kingdom but an unknown underground city. This film is notoriously bad and consider the worst video game adaptation ever.
Mortal Kombat film was average and faithful to the source material. The acting was subpar and the characters were portray well. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation was awful with their CGI animailty and abysmal fight scenes. Street Fighter (1994 film) was another cult following movie. Where Raul Julia’s character M.Bison says (of course!). I think the movie is better than Mortal Kombat and Super Mario. Ryu is not the main protagonist but Colonel Guile (Jean-Claude Van Damme). Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li was the hero in this movie. I have watched Street Fighter but no The Legend of Chun-Li. In my opinion Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist web series is the best out of both. The web series explore Ryu and Ken past with their master Gouken. Later on Street Fighter: Resurrection is based on Street Fighter V and both series is on Machinima.
Sabrina the Animated Series is based on the Archie Comics Sabrina the Teenage Witch. There is a couple of animated shows and live action. The story and plot is about a teenage girl named Sabrina Spellman. She is a witch and lives with her family. Sabrina has a familiar named Salem who talks and a warlock. Two immortal aunts Hilda and Zelda Spellman. Her uncle Quigley who doesn’t have magic. Uncle Quigley is a original character from the show. There are other characters like Harvey Kinkle, Gem Stone and Chole (Sabrina school friend). In the series, Sabrina tackles on being a witch and trying to fit in. She uses magic to fix problems and learn her lesson at the end. Sabrina the Animated Series episode 46 revolves around video games and VR. Let’s start with Xabrina Warrior Witch episode.
Here is a summary of the episode. Harvey is at the arcade and trying to get the high school. A man named Mr. MBA approach Harvey to find a beta tester to try out his new game Myths, Monsters and Mayhew. Harvey accepts the deal and Sabrina is worry about him. Chole and Sabrina finds out that Harvey is stuck in the game. Sabrina calls Vicious Games and MBA is unavailable. She finds out that Harvey needs help. Chole and Sabrina comes inside Myths, Monsters and Mayhem game. The duo must complete challenges and get the reward to win. Note: Sabrina can’t use her magic in the game. Sabrina and Chole meets NPCs that help the duo. First is Aunt Zelda who is Athena and gives them insights.
