The Confusing Dragon Quest Warrior Timeline

Had to work on my aunt’s computer today. (Her and my dad’s came in at nearly the same time and Tuesday I didn’t get any sleep the night before.) So sorry for again rushing something together. Hopefully we’ll have actual articles the rest of the week.

Above is the intro to Dragon Warrior, an incomplete dub of the anime based on the NES video game. While I have played a little bit of the game prior this was basically my introduction to the franchise. It wouldn’t be until the internet came along that I would hear of Dragon Quest, the original Japanese title of the game series. Nowadays games in the series use the “Quest” title over “Warrior” but between that and spin-off games the timeline is apparently confusing, if they take place in the same universe at all.

In the video below James Rolfe comes out of his “Angry Video Game Nerd” persona (still expect some swearing, just not as much as usual) to go into the franchise’s confusing timeline.

BW’s Daily Video> Star Trek Vs. Roddenberry’s Vision

Despite how this opens, this video isn’t a commentary on current Star Trek but a look at what Roddenberry wanted to do and what he couldn’t get away with.

The Adventures Of The Galaxy Rangers Pilot Reel

I like that intro. It falls just short of being good enough for My Favorite Intros because it’s short and most of the enjoyment comes from the song (you can find the full version online) and gets to set up the story and show off the powers of the four Galaxy Rangers but that’s all it has time for. I’d still rank it above a lot of modern intros but we’re not here to discuss the intro.

So while I was looking for those earlier attempts at what became Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers, one of them being a pitch video for a show called Galaxy Rangers, it shouldn’t be a surprise than one of the 1980s cult hit sci-fi westerns would dominate any attempt to look up anything else with that name. While I couldn’t find anything related to the pre-Power Rangers I did find a pilot reel for Adventures Of The Galaxy Rangers, basically a condensed version of the first episode. Since today was busy with helping family (and tomorrow may be as well) I thought I’d bring this out as a taste for non-fans and a treat for the show’s actual fans. Enjoy.

BW’s Daily Video: 8 Things Nobody Wants To Admit About MCU Spider-Man

Catch more WhatCulture Comics on their YouTube channel.

Also remember Sony demanded these changes because they wanted to be able to do a more iconic Spider-Man on their still-active contract if the MCU version failed to be successful. Never mind that Sony hadn’t had a hit with the web slinger since Sam Rami’s second film after forcing him to make additions to the third that chased him off of doing the fourth. So don’t forget to blame Sony for MCU Spider-Man being Peter Parker in name only.
