Ratched series trailer

We live in a strange time friends. This strange time now includes a Nurse Ratched origin series, the tyrannical nurse from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. I’m sorta curious where the hell this series is going to take this. I want to watch it for Sarah Paulson and I’m hoping for the best. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Predators

predators

We begin with Royce, a mercenary,  falling from the sky, unaware how he ended up in such a predicament. After avoiding death, he discovers he isn’t the only one. The survivors of the drop land in an uncharted jungle, each armed and each a soldier, killer from there respective field. After a run in with with these four legged alien beasts, they start to question what’s going on when an unseen assailant starts picking them off. Prey for a new kind of hunter on a lien world, how long can they survive the ultimate hunters?

Predator 3 is a mixed bag but I appreciate that they tried expanding the lore and didn’t just repackage the formula of the first 2 movies. I actually like how the characters are mostly hostile towards each other and have pretty cool backgrounds with a curve-ball towards the end; the story reminds me of The Most Dangerous Game featuring the Predator. I like the idea of introducing different Predator clans but the bastard Predator looked kinda goofy with the half mask and under bite. The effects are good for the most part but there are a few questionable moments. My favorite action scene is definitely the sword fight between the Yakuza assassin and the Predator. The ending is fine but I hate how open ended it is. There is a lot of callbacks to the first and the score is a nice updated feel of the original. In the end, Predators is a decent sequel that you may like if you want something a little different from the series. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Assassin’s Creed Valhalla Gameplay trailer

It’s no surprise the latest Assassin’s Creed to drop looks like it’s shaping up to be the best we’ve seen in ages. I love the combat changes and the graphics look stunning but I can’t help but wish it wasn’t an Assassin’s Creed game but a whole new IP instead. I’m wishing for the best and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Watch Dogs: Legion cinematic trailer

I like the cyberpunk vision they are going for and the narration is a nice touch even though I’m getting bored of dystopia. The break neck pacing was jarring but some of the action scenes are cool. I think the gameplay trailer was better than the cinematic, but this conveys a message that it’s here. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Watch Dogs: Legion gameplay overview

I’ve never been into the Watch Dogs series, even though many people have told me 2 was a huge step in the right direction. Legion looks like a blast and I like the inspiration taken from Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood and the loads of different ways to play the game out. Legion very well might be where I start the series. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

After not hearing from him for a bit, they bust into his room, finding him dead and naked in bed. While looking for answers, they find a suitcase full of money and they find themselves going down a series of dark paths leading into insanity all in the name of money, finding out you never know who your friends truly are…

28 Days Later  is one my favorite movies of all time so I really excited to see this after finding out Danny Boyle directed it. After watching it, I’m not sure how I would define it, skillfully blending elements of suspense, dark comedy, soft horror, and a intriguing twist filled plot. The acting is fantastic on top of some beautiful cinematography and score. This movie did keep me on the edge of my seat and I have to admit, I wasn’t sure where certain characters would end up and I like how the plot keeps moving until the very end. The actors have great chemistry and work great together. I loved the movie and it was a great start to sink into the works of a great director. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
