Straight Into Compton? Chris Rock Quizzes Compton Moviegoers on Oscar Films
Chris Rock took viewers to his favorite movie theater in Compton, California, during the Oscars Sunday night. "Tonight I've been calling out Hollywood on lack of diversity, and you know what, I don't want to just complain. I want to help solve the problem and that's going to take a fresh prospective," the host, 51, said. "So I went far away from Hollywood, I went as far away from Hollywood as I could."

Yasuhiro Wada's 'Hometown Story' feels very much like a homecoming. As the creator of the original 'Harvest Moon', Wada-san was instrumental in spawning a franchise that has over 30 games to date (that's including spin-offs). Of course, his career hasn't been dominated with endearing and highly accessible farming simulations; directorial involvement in Marvelous Entertainment and time at Grasshopper Manufacture further showcased his multi-genre prowess. Yet there is a circular charm in seeing him at Natsume's E3 booth so he could present his new IP, the once titled 'Project Happiness', now officially 'Hometown Story'. It feels like a homecoming even though it's clearly not part of the 'Harvest Moon' universe while there is certainly strains of that franchise's DNA.

The trailer Natsume showed, however brief, did a lot to get my attention: adorable character designs that are notably different from the characters in 'Harvest Moon',
