Monster Hunter Movie Release Date

Eurogamer is reporting that we finally have a release date for the Monster Hunter movie, September 4th next year.  This is quite the wait but I have to be honest, having over 200 hours into Monster Hunter World and not even bothering to count the others I am not really looking forward to it. The synopsis alone (which can be seen in the Eurogamer article) just doesn’t seem good to me. Happily, it is still quite the ways off so obviously this is by no means a reason to call it quits already, but I am definitely not hyped up for it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Apex Legends (PS4)

Apex Legends, the new and hot Battle Royal from Respawn the makers of Titanfall. Honestly, that should tell you all you need to know since it is respawn. You would expect fluid controls, great graphics, and a new twist. What do you get? You get fluid controls, great graphics, and a new twist. All games are played with a group of three that the game happily assigns to you or you can grab a few friends. The jumpmaster picks a spot and you can either join him or go on your own.

The characters are each unique and have their own ups and downs. The issues with the game are honestly pretty few. I had no frame rate drops or graphical issues, none of the characters felt under or overpowered and admittedly at no time do I feel like I am obligated to spend money to compete even tho two characters are essentially locked behind a paywall. They just happen to be two characters you have to buy. The cosmetics don’t seem overly expensive either.

The game isn’t perfect, it is still a battle royal and still suffers from many of the same flaws. The game has 1 map, at least for now, and it is the same thing over and over again. If you aren’t willing to put some real time into it and learn the ma you will be at a huge disadvantage and you can seriously hide and kill 1 person to win the round. You can conceivably win by luck and not skill, but that is just the nature of the beast. I don’t think this is a Fortnite killer, but it is definitely a great alternative. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

36 Fragments Of Midnight

36 Fragments Of Midnight is a rather simple concept. You are a little square block, bounce around the map dodging all sorts of traps like saw blades and lasers to collect 36 fragments. The game itself is also kind of simple, in fact, in about an hour you can get a nice shiny platinum trophy. The real questions here are is the game fun and how does it play?

Well, it plays pretty well, at no point did I die and think it was the games fault. Getting around is simply a matter of hitting left and right and using the jump button to jump once or twice. As for fun, eh. I didn’t find it very fun at all. There isn’t anything fundamentally wrong with the game, it looks good and plays well I just didn’t enjoy my time with it. For $3 tho, it is worth it for the quick platinum if you are into that sort of thing. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Sony Sells over 91 million Systems

As the clock ticks down on this generation of consoles and rumors fly about next-gen leaks and specs, Sony passes the 91 million units sold mark according to Techradar. These numbers seem to be slowing down, for example, they sold around 800 thousand more this time last year.  Unless there is a sudden massive drop off, this will be the year Sony passes the 100 million mark which is pretty cool. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Thoughts on Ben Affleck Batman Departure

By now we have all seen the confirmation that Ben Affleck won’t be Batman anymore. If not, here is an article from cinemablend. This is a bit weird for me tho, since when he was first announced I hated the idea. The truth is I actually rather liked him as Batman and it kind of sucks he never got a true solo Batman movie. Not that I think he was the best at the job, but he was far better than I personally expected.

That being said, it did become quite obvious in Justice League he was there more out of obligation than any desire to be there which I understand, it wasn’t exactly a good movie. He was cursed with being a great Batman in a time of mediocre scripts. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Xbox Live on IOS Android and Switch?

Yes you read that headline right, and yes it sounds pretty weird but that is the rumor going around due to a session description for a 2019 game development conference. Polygon has more of the finer details about who and how many, but for me, this is both exciting and weird. It could be interesting to be able to combine your online friend’s list to see who is playing what across console or even on the go. Maybe even the potential of Achievements for mobile and Nintendo games? Now all of this is 100% speculation on my part, but it’s all quite exciting. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Avengers: Endgame Superbowl trailer

Well, Disney is continuing it’s trend after the first Avengers 4 trailer of keeping things hush hush. Pretty much we get Cap’s pre-war speech and we get to see the rest of the crew suit up for what’s sure to be a cataclysmic finale against Thanos. I’m curious why Captain Marvel hasn’t popped up yet but since I imagine she’ll be the turning point of the battle they likely wont show her til the end. I’m glad much isn’t being revealed and I’m pumped as hell. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
