New Projected Book 3 Schedule

dongbufeng:

With news that Nick is planning on airing 2 new Korra episodes a week, here is the new Book 3 projected schedule:

  • July 11: Episodes 4 & 5
  • July 18: Episodes 6 & 7
  • July 25: Episodes 8 & 9
  • August 1: Episodes 10 & 11
  • August 8: Episodes 12 & 13 (finale)

This is subject to change if Nick decides to not actually air two a week after a certain point, or if they decide to take a week off at some point.

KORRA SCHEDULE REVEALED.
Korra will air 2 episodes a week from 7/11-8/8. 
Not the best news, broadcast wise, this season might be over before people know it’s happening.
Good news if you’re going to San DiegoComic Con as my prediction they might just show the rest of the season (at the time of Con, only 4 episodes will remain).
For the most part though, this announcement originating as a response from the Nick Twitter doesn’t bode well.
As of this morning, Book 3 is still not available on my preferred iTunes store.

As we plug every episode, Matt and I are co-hosts of a pop culture podcast called Fighting In The War Room.

This week, we spend about 15 minutes talking about The Legend of Korra, including a bid for our co-host Katey Rich of Vanity Fair to start watching. 

She’s had some trouble engaging though, and we find out why in this clip.

Check out the whole episode HERE if you want more FITWR.

Amazon have listed the Korra 3DS game for preorder! The game will be titled The Legend of Korra: A New Era Begins
A lot of people are thinking this game is out on December 31st because Amazon have listed the release date as that. This is not true. Amazon always use December 31st as a placeholder date for all preorders which don’t have a release date. An example of this would be that the games Smash Bros U & Rise of the Tomb Raider have both been listed by Amazon to release on December 31st even though they are both confirmed to not release on that date.
You can preorder The Legend of Korra: A New Era Begins on Amazon USA only here: http://www.amazon.com/The-Legend-Korra-New-Era-Begins/dp/B00L86B56I

Read all of my reviews from The Legend of Korra: Book 2.
For most people, recaps are day-after reading. The author files their story, people reflect on the episode for a morning, and that’s that. Next! 
But I’m quite proud of the criticism I wrote for Vulture during The Legend of Korra's second season. It's a show packed with provocative themes and animated nuance. Compared to Book 1, it was ambitious and a little messy. There was tons to talk about week-to-week. When it worked and even when it didn’t, I was thrilled to spotlight the passion poured into each episode. Thought it made sense to share these again.
I’ll be writing about Book 3 at Screencrush.com. Look at for posts going up after new episodes air on Friday.

KORRA GAME WILL HAVE PRO BENDING…but only for CPU and you.
From the first HANDS ON report from the game (CLICK!):
“Lastly, Platinum is making a competitive arena mode, where you can take on other benders in 3 vs. 3 matches. Although this seems like an opportunity for online multiplayer, the game is only single-player, and these matches are fought against computer-controlled characters.”
Otherwise, it sounds really interesting from a hack-n-slash combo perspective. And it looks great.-Da7e-
