Cotton 100% PS4 Review

As always I want to give a huge shout out to my friends over at ININ games for tossing me a copy of this one to review. It is always appreciated.

Cotton 100% was never released in the west but was originally released for the SNES in Japan. It is actually nice that this series is finally getting released here in America.

Cotton 100% is actually more of a side scrolling shooter, think along the lines of Gradius. As the screen moves to the side you will be shooting enemies that fly towards you or drop bombs or use other power ups on them. Unlike most games however where you will fly around in some sort of ship or such, you actually are a cute little pink haired witch on a broom.

Honestly she might have a name, but as of when I played it the game is only in it’s original Japanese. This doesn’t actually do anything to the game play and you could easily look up the story, I just didn’t bother. The game play was enough to keep me interested.

Graphically the game looks nice, it isn’t anything to write home about but we are looking at a re-release here. If you are walking into this expecting AAA graphics you aren’t having realistic expectations. The enemies are pretty well designed and the bosses are down right adorable. In fact I will go so far as to say they are probably the high point of the game itself. Each one is just greatly designed.

The sound unfortunately is where the game suffered the most for me. It wasn’t by any means bad, it just wasn’t exactly good. For me it just felt dated and stiff. And really could have used some sort of a bigger update or clearing up.

The truth about this game is quite simple, it’s fun but there isn’t anything special about it. It’s definitely worth playing playing and is a solid 7/10, but truth be told it’s a very niche game for people that love retro games. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Matrix Resurrections trailer 1

I feel weird about this one. I really liked the first Matrix but let’s face it, the sequels honestly blew. I like the direction this appears to be going in but I’m weary at the same time. I felt more of a soft spot during the trailer than I thought I would. This December I guess we’ll return to the Matrix once again. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic remake reveal trailer

One of my biggest regrets is never have gotten the chance to play the first game, which many still say is their favorite. I can’t wait to experience it for myself and see what the hype was for. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Mario Party: Superstars announcement trailer

Who doesn’t love some Mario Party, despite the arguments that break out after? Well it looks like we’re getting a greatest hits of the series from over the years which is a pretty cool idea and a interesting way for the last generation to share a classic with the kids today. May the gaming gods bring your glory.

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora reveal trailer

So I find it super weird we got something about this game, something I didn’t know existed until E3 than that fabled Avatar 2 no one really gives a rat’s ass about anymore. Seriously, isn’t this series about a decade too late? Nothing about what I saw seemed great but the question is will the old fans still care after a decade of inactivity in the franchise? May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Metroid: Dread reveal trailer

First of all, I always had a high respect for the Metroid series, as a fan of the Prime games of yester-year. It’s extremely cool that not only is Samus returning but she’s returning with a classic 2-D adventure that seriously looks awesome. I’m glad to see this badass Nintendo icon returning, may the gaming god’s bring you glory.

Leviathan

Leviathan (1989 film) - Wikipedia

Miles beneath the Atlantic Ocean, a group pf miners lead by a geologist are harvesting minerals from the ocean floor. During a routine sea-walk, a pair of crew members stumbles upon a Russian sea wreck named the Leviathan. Within the confines of the ship, there were casualties, questions, and a flask of vodka. It isn’t long before the crew discovers it isn’t booze in the flask and not only do the crew members that drank from it die, but suffer a series of heavy genetic alterations, creating a beast unlike any other. Can the survivors not only survive the beast but the crushing sea waiting to destroy them?

Leviathan is a movie I grew up with, and off the bat I have to say it’s a pretty decent B movie. This movie is trying to be Alien and The Thing just underwater and it does pretty decent at it until you get the creature effects. Back in 89, I think the effects were fair enough but today, in 2021, the creature effects are pretty cheesy looking. I do have to give credit though, the underwater scenes and general atmosphere are impressive for the time and have a great sense of claustrophobia. The acting is pretty fair but admittedly Ernie Hudson was my favorite character in the movie and had my favorite line in it. The score fits and adds to the movie in a couple spots. In the end, while not great by any means, Leviathan is a decent B movie worth checking out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Human Tornado

The Human Tornado (1976) - IMDb

I know in all my years blogging, I’ve talked about some some strange ass movies, books, games, and comics. I live for this strange stuff, pieces of art that undeniably stand out…so I’m pretty sure I can’t show the trailer here but believe you me, it stands out.

The Human Tornado follows Dolomite and his group of friends on the run. His crime? He slept with a bigot sheriff’s wife that is willing to do just about anything for revenge, including framing Dolomite for killing his wife. When while Dolomite has to lay all of those in his wake while helping some friends out with there own mess, but it’s just another day for the Human Tornado.

There’s so much I want to say but I don’t think I can. This is one of the few movies that NEEDS to be experienced, rather than told about. I can tell you the plot is disjointed, the fight scenes are really corny, and this movie is super politically incorrect- seriously, something like this would never get made today. But holy crap I loved this movie. Rudy Ray Moore is badass and hilarious. I love how unapologetic the movie is about nudity and language and simply how quotable it is. In the end, this movie sure as hell ain’t for everyone, but if you love WTF movies, this is for you. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
