Murder Mystery (2019)

Murder Mystery is the new Adam Sandler movie from Happy Madison Productions starring Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston. They play a married couple, her a hair dresser, him a cop trying to become a detective, tho she has been lied to and thinks he already is one.

After 15 years, they are finally going on their European honeymoon. On the plane they meet Charles Cavendish (Luke Evans) the nephew of a billionare going through a rough break up that invites them on the family yacht, just to piss off his uncle that married his fiancee.

The movie is getting mixed reviews, critics don’t seem to enjoy it but viewers seem to be enjoying it. I fall into the I enjoyed it category. Ms. Aniston and Mr. Sandler have great chemistry and perform well together and the story is well put together and easy to understand but has just enough twist and turns to be fun.

My only real issue with the story is there is nothing new here either, Murder Mystery is very cliche and by the book, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing I just would have liked a bit more to it. That being said if you like mystery movies this one is solid. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Dragonball Z: The Namek Saga

dbz 2  We continue on with the epic tale that is Dragonball Z. After saving the Earth, Vegeta has fled, Goku is wrecked, and with Piccolo and Kami dead there are no more Dragonballs. Mr Popo shows Bulma the ship Kami came in as a baby and she’s able to find the coordinates to Planet Namek, which has it’s own Dragonballs. Bulma, Krillin, and Gohan set off for Namek to restore Piccolo and there friends. Vegeta, pissed at his defeat, is stronger than ever after being beaten nearly to death because of Saiyan genetics and sets off to Namek as well. Despite Piccolo’s original bitter nature, Gohan and Krillin discover the Namekians are a peaceful people who are being slaughtered by Vegeta and a much darker force- Frieza. His army and right hand men Zarbon and Dedoria are searching for the balls as well so Frieza can achieve immortality. Before killing Dedoria Vegeta discovers the Saiyans weren’t destroyed by an asteroid as he was led to believe but Frieza himself, which boosts Vegeta’s blood lust. While a cat and mouse game ensues between Krillin and Gohan and Vegeta, Bulma tries to survive the alien world, and Goku trains with gravity as he races to help his friends on Namek. When the Dragonballs are in there grasp, the pair find themselves having to join forces in order to face Frieza’s squad of strange but powerful mercenaries- Enter the Ginyu Force…

Season 2 was a good blend of adventure and fights. I like how half of the story is Vegeta going on a murderous rampage and he does have most of the best fights in this season. The Ginyu Force is goofy but they are pretty cool. The pacing is a bit off and it it is slower than last saga but it’s worth the wait for what will come next. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Jason Momoa Wants to Play Wolverine

With the departure of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, the man nobody would argue is the ultimate Wolverine at the very least in the live action area. Who could possibly replace him? Well Aquaman has an interesting idea, and that idea is himself, Jason Momoa. As interesting of an idea as this is, i’m not exactly convinced. I do enjoy pretty much everything Momoa has been in that I have seen, this would be a very tall order for him to fill. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Resident Evil 5 (PS4)

Originally released on PlayStation 3 with somewhat mixed reviews, my daughter recently got into Resident Evil 2 Remake and wanted to play the rest, so we decided to co-op Resident Evil 5. While graphically it isn’t bad and the controls hold up well, the split screen itself is atrocious. They don’t even use the entire screen, its just more or less 2 small squares of the screen, one for each player.

Aside from that, the AI is still pretty damn horrible as well to be honest. In single player Sheva is still more or less useless and will waste ammo on dead bodies. The story is also kind of convoluted, but that is pretty typical for the series. The game is fun in multiplayer tho, and I am having a blast with my daughter, but the game still leaves much to be desired and did not age very well for a lot of reasons. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Doctor Sleep trailer

This has made me wonder for a while how a squeal to The Shining was going to go. I’m happy to say this is in fact the sequel to Kubrick’s legendary film and I’m pretty excited. Dr Sleep follows the story of grown Danny Torrance dealing with a new threat and the old demons of his childhood. I’m glad to say it looks like the recent revival of awesome King based movies continues. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Disgaea 4 Complete+ (Preview, PS4 and Switch)

As you all know i am a pretty big fan of NIS America and the  of Disgaea Series, and it all started with Disgaea 4. To see this complete edition. The game will come with a all the extra content and will have some as of yet unrevealed quality of life improvements, tho I assume they will be graphical and sound upgrades to what was originally a PS3 game.

The story is about an ex Tyrant and vampire, Lord Valvatorez, who has sworn to never again drink blood and has since fallen down the power scale of the Netherworld where he now trains Prinnies. This one will be worth playing I think, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
