Marvel’s Wolverine reveal trailer

This I have to admit I didn’t see coming. I love Wolverine and Insomniac did amazing with Spiderman but I’m still a bit weary. I’m glad it’s already said to have a M rating and I’m sure the story will be really good. This can be a cool new game in the future. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Tiny Tina’s Wonderlands gameplay trailer

I sort of wish this was actually Borderlands 3 ; the spirit seems more in tune with the series than 3 was. I love the crazy ass nature of the art and character designs. Of course, we also get a whole Tina experience which is freaking awesome. I can’t wait for a games of Bunkers and Badasses. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

God of War: Ragnarok reveal trailer

As a PlayStation gamer and longtime fan of the series, I’m pretty bummed I haven’t sat down and played the last game. This trailer looks really cool and I do want to see Kratos face Thor, who looks pretty badass if you ask me. Very soon I’ll sit down and indulge but for now, this looks pretty badass. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Marvel’s Spiderman 2 reveal

Since I first played Marvel’s Spider-man (PS4) and Marvel Spider-man: Miles Morales I’ve been waiting for the full fledged sequel. Peter and Miles together being hunting by the badass hunter Kraven, while Venom is on the prowl. This has the setup for a badass story and I love Tony Todd as Venom. I’m truly pumped for it. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Doom Patrol season 3 final trailer

I’m seriously excited for Doom Patrol’s return. I admire this show for being unapologetically weird and thankfully the trend seems to be continuing. After finishing with Titans ( reviews coming soon) I can’t wait to jump in. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Revival

Revival (novel) - Wikipedia

What becomes of our future is unclear, but sometimes those we meet are destined to be connected to us, whether we want them there or not. Jamie Morton was a small boy when he met Reverend Charles Jacobs, a young, idealistic pastor with a beautiful family. And a fascination with electricity. After a ski accident, Jamie’s brother loses his voice; with nowhere else to turn, Jacobs offer’s a cure using electricity. Miraculously the boy is cured. Then comes the day when Jacob’s life crashes and his family gruesomely dies in a car accident, the pastor blasts god and mankind in a dark sermon after, disappearing. Years down the road as fate would have it, Jamie and Jacobs would reunite as Jacobs is a traveling carnie. Jamie, now a heroin addict, is in a bad way until Jacobs offers a electric cure. Charles Jacobs, hero to so many, seemingly able to use the “secret electricity” to cure dozens but when sinister aftereffects start arising, Jamie realizes his old friend is truly mad and maybe up to a glorious undertaking that can be deadly.

Over the past decade, while Stephen King will always be a hero of mine, I can’t say I’ve enjoyed many of his books this past decade. While I liked The Outsider and as much as Under the Dome pissed me off, it still wasn’t a bad book. That being said, Revival is a damn great book. Charlie Jacobs is a really good King villain who’s really sympathetic but throughout the story, slips more and more into madness, making you question how long this dude has really been nuts. I like the theme around a sinister preacher pretty much tampering with a power we barely understand. I like Jamie Morton and how the book follows his life. The ending I thought was pretty surprising and dark, actually one of my favorites to a King story. While I can’t call it horror in the conventional sense, its a damn good story. Also, for those that put off by the word count of some of King’s books, Revival is just about 400 pages so it’s a really quick read. In the end, I really recommend Revival as one of the best King books in a long time and I highly recommend it. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
