Beginning of the episode, when he grabs the tiny glass pyramid, he has a different accent and attitude. At first you assume Marc is being pissy and trying to escape, but it wouldn't surprise me if that was not Marc, given the quality of the acting.
(to be clear, I got that from an Internet comment, I'm not saying anyone official has been hinting at it or anything, it might be bullshit, but I can't help rewatching that scene and think "that's not Marc")
edit - I'm checking out the French dub (which I usually hate to do) and even there, there's a notable difference in the voice. It has to be on purpose. Plus the nose wound is never seen on Marc or Steven, it just shows up out of nowhere.

I don't know when Loki S2 was officially announced but it feels like everyone was expecting it before S1 was even out. The trailers all have Moon Knight in costume and Harrow flying and fighting over that weird background full of small pyramids tips (?) at night, so there's definitely a fight there, meaning it has to get everyone there.

edit - Internet was already rumoring and speculating about a Loki season 2 when the first episode came out, the writers were just saying "if people want it, we can do it", and then the official announcement came on the last episode of S1.
Either way, so far everything has been a hit, so it's easy to assume they're seriously considering and waiting if S1 works out (which it is). They probably want MK to cross over with the other nighttime heroes in movies, but there's no reason to think they'll skip out on that. Falcon & WS is the only one where they explicitly said "no season 2" only to reveal at the end that Falcon was now Captain America, so a season 2 would be Captain America & WS.
Next week still needs to resolve a bunch of stuff even if it just opens up into new stories. Loki still answered all its questions on the heart of the TVA, MK still needs to end this current arc.

Motherfuckers put a "greet guild members 40 times" tile in the bingo. Fuck. I was thinking there were a lot of super easy tiles, and then this.
I'm hoping the backlash will make them change that tile for something else within the next 2 days, as it has happened before, but, fuck.

Ooooh man, Moon Knight 5 was a HARD watch. It also connects back to ep 1, I thought it was cool how Marc tried to let Steven have a normal life and be nice to him and spare his feelings every time (until he threw that first shitfit in ep 2)
And damn, Oscar Isaac is really SELLING it.
Spoiler, click to toggle visibilty
How are they wrapping it up in one episode from there ??

edit
apparently episode 5 did show us the third personality... ? It'd be a cool move if that's true.

and the infamous tower where EX Kyo is encouraged.
SS Iori can be used so at least everyone will clear it.
I hope the new craftable option card is good for Orochi himself.
The Battle Pass for the event has a lot of some valuable items, too (quite the value crash for those items like BS/SS memory selector...)

They keep showing the previous Kyos together with the EX sign, like they're hinting that they'll all get an EX version. the Signature one should be good enough for it, but it's not like anyone will EX up the bronze Kyo using an EX Kyo memory...

Yeah okay, so now that we have a full fight, Bardock really has none of the ruthless savagery from the movie, he just has Goku's "I fight because I wanna" only mixed with Vegeta's "also, I'll win at all cost (except when I fail)". He's more of a survivalist underdog and not a lone commando. That's not awful, but still a massive downgrade in character.
That wish is..... NOT convincing at all. Come on. (and it's hilarious how he STILL didn't consider reviving the mom. Not even one throaway line on how his dragon isn't even powerful enough to do that, they just forget LOL)

Bardock isn't suddenly a good guy just because he saved three people among however many races he's genocided at this point.
I'm just waiting to see him actually fight, if they can make him as brutal and tactical as the old movie.
It took six months but we got the final nail in that coffin after all. He's even thinking of his kids, FFS.

... I wonder if Goku will mention to Monaito how he knows two four other powerful Namekian chiefs (Guru, Kami, Dende, and the one who replaced Guru) whose dragons are strong enough to raise the dead, it'd be smart to showcase how different Namekians at different power levels can create a weaker dragon (like how Monaito only has two minuscule balls). Like back when Dende came to Earth and they mentioned how he was still young and not very strong.
... Did they tell Monaito they know a bunch of Namekians already, including a whole planet of them ?

To be fair about the powercreep, the lv 6 to 10 EXP capsules were datamined since, what, Signature Athena before we even knew she'd be a Signature character and she was a yellow balance unit ? BS and SS units ended up coming before the lv6 awakening, but we knew it was a long time coming. The only real problem is, absolutely fuck the number of memories required (but I like the dispatch system with the shard stuff, if you play with the daily free refresh).
About the collab, I don't really mind the low quality content, but I appreciate that Ryu and Akuma are really well done (design, skill and animation wise, like Ryu's ultra), and Chun Li is fine. Bison is a bit weird with that super that goes backward though. Compared to the GG collab where everyone was a monster, all of Baiken's skills are full of holes that the CPU keeps slipping through, Ram feels a bit weird, I really only like Sol and Ino's moves. The SFV units really are worthy of being your top units for their respective colors (and I can finally retire BS Igniz when I A6 Chun Li and / or get her gold moon/star stones)

Chapter of fight still requires you to keep increasing your CP to keep getting ore and moon / star cores which are critical for gold moon / star stones, which are still the bottleneck right now. You can only do the pink stages daily, once you hit your CP limit on the blue stages, you lose a lot of resources. I hit stage 92 and I still have a very hard time as I get shafted by stone RNG.
And it's weird that they recently started focusing on card sets that increase elemental damage, which does NOT reflect on the CP (which has always been dumb but whatever), even though everything in the game needs you to increase your CP on pain of getting your damage set to 0 because fuck you.

Yeah you can get 10 memories with coins now, on top of the character, and the event coins are coming up really fast. It's actually very generous, more than it was the first time, especially if you already have her at a good level, you'll be drowning in the other lucky rewards. Too bad we're not getting a rerun of the Chizuru set cards.

New banner on startup teases an EX Kyo. But apparenty it's XV Kyo ?? (Biker jacket) so signature Kyo is getting shafted lol.
Apparently there's also an EX summon banner planned ? SS and BS are dead already and you'll get 3 weeks to pile up 11 copies of him, because 8 is not enough.

FES selectors are already useless (I have everyone maxed) so I'll just splurge on the capsule boxes.

Moon Knight is fun. Love how he's just beating the shit out of the first jackal like a mad lad, and you can't help but feel so shitty for poor Steven, Oscar Isaac is doing great with the crazy. His British accent is so aggressively on the nose. And the Mr Knight twist was unexpected.

just realized what the Mr. Knight suit up scene made me think of with his voice : he sounds like Ryan Reynolds' Deadpool, and talks a little bit like him too (without the aggressive insanity).

New relay gift box has a second free change up ticket for the sf5 cast at the end. That's a relief.

Same here, the official stance relaxed on masks but then days later there was news of a new wave, my company immediately came back to telling us to wear masks but I think the government hasn't had time to revert the relaxation yet.
I don't know how it's going in terms of hospitals and cases, but I keep hearing about people getting it. My brother's ex-wife a few weeks ago, then my brother, then their daughter, and a bunch of people at work these last couple of weeks - but it's always a mild case of headache for a couple days now.

I've had doubts back in January but I still haven't gotten it myself.

Zelda delayed to Spring 2023.
But we do get 3 solid seconds of new footage with a better look at Link and the Master Sword. Good enough to last us a full year. I think that Link's new close-up design slaps [/Will Smith]
And did you see that new haircut ? I mean Aonuma.

Lets open the bets and rumors for what Zelda game we're getting this year to make up for that (and the Switch 2 rumors for BotW2 while we're at it because why not).

Ryu however, despite being SFV class, receives the coveted Change Up feature that was for BS Omega Rugal and Orochi.
We know it's not restricted to SS and BS units since 98 Rugal and 97 Orochi could get it (at the cost of BS Rugal and BS Orochi memories obviously, can't be too easy) so it'll just be whoever they want at the time and don't try to overthink it. But yeah, the big up from this is that dimensional invites are much easier to get these days than SS/BS memories (especially for collab units).

So he has the Reppuuken but not Kaiser Wave nor Gravity Smash (he puts that in his climax while going full dictator), he has the warp but not the sick 02 kick combo (huge disappointment for me), and he has his full mind and isn't semi-crazy.
So... Why is it Omega and not just regular Rugal ?
Super cool that he's free, though. And lol @ the boss challenge, nice.

Edit
Actually playable Rugal has normal Rugal theme, and boss challenge Rugal has Omega Rugal theme, so maybe they just decided to blur things up.

I would not have expected a return to the 2/3 period, ever. I'm glad that it won't be about the boring corporation war of the 6+ period, and that it focuses on the actual Tekken story.
It's too bad they really insist on bringing a weird character design style every time.
