John Wick 3 trailer

So we are going to see legendary badass John Wick take on the world this year. Seriously, I’m not kidding; spoiler for John Wick: Chapter 2 but at the end, pretty much the whole damn world wants his ass dead but he’s the damn “Boogeyman” and he ain’t going down without a fight as we see in the trailer. I have a lot of love and respect for this series and so far Parabellum looks like a good step in the right direction. May the gaming gods bring you glory and stop you from pissing off John Wick.

Pokemon: I Choose You (2017)

Pokemon I Choose you is a retelling and reimagining of sorts of the beginning of Ash’s journey. Brock and Misty don’t even appear in the movie, Pokemon up to Sun and Moon appear and we will see a sped up version of season one up until Ash gets his third gym badge.

Before the opening credits, we get to the point where Ash is attacked by Spearow and they see Ho-Oh. The opening song plays, we see Ash catch Caterpie then the movie starts. It won’t be long before Ash hears a rumor about a wild Entei and he runs off to catch it. After running into Verity and her Piplup they fail to catch Entei. This is around the time they scare an Onyx and retreat and eventually run into Ash’s Charmander that was abandoned by Cross and with the help of Sorrel and Lucario they save Charmander.

This is where things speed up more and we learn about Ho-Oh and some battles later Charmander evolves. In fact, by the end of the movie, it will fully evolve into Charizard to battle Cross as they attempt to meet Ho-Oh.

The movie has pretty mixed reviews from fans but critics as a whole weren’t fans. The movie was solid enough to me for what it was but honestly, I don’t understand why it needed to exist outside of simply being made to make some money. It isn’t a bad movie exactly, it just isn’t good or even necessary. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

I have to admit going into this I had odd expectations. The trailers made it look fun, I always liked Han Solo, but people give this movie so much shit I was expecting to be greatly disappointed.  I didn’t get the chance to see it in theaters so when I saw it was now on Netflix, of course, I checked it out, and I am pretty glad I did.

The story is pretty straight forward. It simply tells the story of how Han escaped a life of being a sewer rat, became a smuggler and got his hand on his prized ship, the Millennium Falcon. There aren’t a lot of twist and turns or shocking developments. Han eventually meets Chewy, then catches a ride with Beckett ( Woody Harrelson) and finally Lando (Donald Glover) to finally pull the job that lets Han say he made the Kessel Run in 12 Parsecs. This has always been a hotly debated thing among Star Trek fans since a parsec is a measure of distance, not time. Many eventually began to speculate that he was referring to a shortened path he took which is now considered the common explanation, tho it is worth noting in the original movie and its script it was made clear nobody believed him because he was obviously lying and sharing false information. This movie now shows it however as a factual event and a shortened run Han made.

Another thing that many never talk about is that they kind of takes a shot at George Lucas at one point. See there is always the who shot first Han or Greedo (Han did for the record), which got worse in the rerelease when George altered the film to make it definitive that Greedo shot first. He did this because he didn’t want Han to seem like a certain kind of character. Well, there is a scene where Han is talking to someone, and he not only shoots first before the other character dies he tells Han he was smart to do that because he would have killed him. Nobody really mentions this to me when talking about the film tho.

The movie is far from perfect, but at the end of the day, it does what it sets out to do. It is entertaining, tells a good origin story and shows how and why Han ended up being who he ends up being. The hate this movie gets to me is greatly not deserved. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Lucifer Season 3

Lucifer season 3 is a bit odd. The ending is on a major cliffhanger, then the show got canceled, we got 2 bonus episodes, then the show got renewed for season 4 by Netflix after a massive save Lucifer campaign.

That being said this season is three things, the longest, the best, and oddest. The oddest because of those bonus episodes. We get a great season, with love and loss, realizations and friendships born and lost and the best ending to any season yet. Then the stand-alone episodes kick in and honestly ruin the ending. They aren’t bad episodes by any means, just after the ending we got they just feel like a tease. The season itself, however, is insanely exciting.

The season itself largely follows Lucifers attempt to discover the Sinnerman an eventually help Cain die, yes Cain as in Cain and Abel. The side of all this is Amenedeil trying to get his wings back, Maze continuing her bounty hunting and Chloe doing the usual. really it is a busy season. This season truly was my favorite despite the bonus episodes kind of ruining the flow. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Breach (Pc)

After playing a bit of the Alpha over the weekend that @Playbreach told me about over on Twitter I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. To be up front, we all know I am not big on these types of games. You can find out all sorts of things on their website here. The game starts out with a pretty simple tutorial and character creator. The controls are the standard, mouse to look around and WSAD to move. It functions like you would expect, tho admittedly there was some lag which I believe was caused by my laptop not quite being up to snuff.

The video shows pretty well what it is. Honestly, after playing it, I enjoy it pretty well. Admittedly the character choices and their abilities aren’t anything you haven’t seen before. Breach in no way reinvents the wheel, but it doesn’t need to. It is fun, and each level gives you something to do and new enjoyment to find, and that is all you need. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Spider-man: Far from Home trailer

This is a awesome time to be a Spider-man fan. Just as the hype I’ve been riding from Marvel’s Spider-man (PS4) was starting to die off, we get our first look at Far from Home, the sequel to Spider-man: Homecoming . The first question I have is whether this takes place before or after Avengers: Infinity War and the “Snap”; I personally think it’s before. Mysterio looks awesome rather surprisingly and I’m glad they seem to be sticking close to his real origin which could make for a interesting play. So far, it looks like more I loved from Homecoming and it should be a good opening to Phase 4. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
