The Real Reasons Behind The Hate For The Ghostbusters Reboot

So everybody from The Washington Post to  Salon.com is claiming that all the hate for the Ghostbusters (In Name Only) trailer is from folks who are anti-women.

First off that’s not the problem at all, in fact writer / director Paul Feig is banking on misogamy as an excuse for if (and probably when) the film tanks at the box office. He will have justification and will lead to labeling Ghostbusters fans who didn’t support his movie as being ‘anti-feminist, basement dwelling assholes’… hell he’s been calling Ghostbusters fans that since 2014.

And truthfully, the Tongue is the toughest of the final fights in game.

Why do I say that? Because I basically walked through the rematches with the Eye and Heart of Valmar with little to no difficulty... and the final boss battle with Zera-Valmar... is rather straight forward if a bit lenghty because of his HP being very much on the high side of the scale. Many consider the final battle to be very underwhelming... and...I kind of half to agree, but at the same time, it's pretty much implied in the game that Zera didn't think he would have to fight himself, under-estimating Ryudo and friends.

That said... the epilogue... is very much a happy ending, Roan's kingdom is thri…
