So besides Eternals and the host of sequels in the MCU for phase 4, Shang Chi is a interesting addition I admit I don’t know much about. I know the movie will feature the true Mandarin, set up from Iron Man 3 as well as being hinted at in the subtitle. The movie looks pretty interesting and the fight scenes look pretty cool. I’m curious to see what’s to come. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
While I’m really hyped about this as much as many I’m sure are, I’m curious what a animated Resident Evil series would be like. The animation is nice and I’m glad to see Leon and Claire reunited once again. What interests me is where this series falls into the timeline. I definitely want to check it out but I’m cautious at the same time. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
Since debuting in Batman: the animated series as Joker’s sidekick and sweetheart, Harley Quinn has become a surprise DC icon, even stealing the show in Suicide Squad and Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn . Its no wonder DC has tried to make Harley into there Deadpool and it was no surprise she got a series of her own, following her adventures free from her abusive relationship with Joker. Along with her Bff Ivy and teaming up with Clayface, Dr. Psycho, King Shark, and Ivy’s landlord, Saul, they are out to dominant the criminal underworld and have fun doing it.
Admittedly, I didn’t like the first few episodes but I quickly got warmed up to and loved the show. I love the personalities of the characters, especially Clayface, Psycho, Bane, and Shark. Oddly, Harley’s breaking away form Joker was my least favorite part of the series so far. I like the love triangle Ivy finds herself in between Harley and Kite-man and found that story more compelling. If you love DC, there are plenty of cameos ranging from the JLA to Darkseid himself. Having the show being MA means there is plenty of bloody fights, crude language, and frankly everything this series needed. It’s definitely worth checking out and I can’t wait for season 3.
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.
Along time ago I wanted to do a massive phase 2 session of Bethesda reviews, this game being at the forefront ( Prey, Dishonored 2, Fallout 76, etc.) Well, things don’t always work out that way we want them too and here I am, reviewing a game I bought near launch, forgot I had, and remembered years later when I’m about to move (yes, seriously.) But the question I ask is was it worth the neglect?
So B.J Blaskowitz, “Terror Billy” to some, has essentially wounded the Nazi regime but they are far from ended. Especially when a disfigured and vengeful Frau Engel is hunting down a gravely wounded Terror Billy as he fights to regroup with his old friends. The goal is simple, to start a revolution in the US, but can Terror Billy and his friends face the might and hatred of the New Colossus?
Wolfenstein: The new Order surprised the hell out of me with it’s loadout of various play style options and challenging enemies. While the challenge remains the same, I do have to say as much as I liked this game it did a damn good job at pissing me off. This game puts you in a lot of situations where stealth would be appreciated but the abilities you gain aren’t no where as helpful as going all out and I feel like you get pushed into all out moshes when simple stealth would have saved a headache; you die very easy in this game. I feel like the tactical shitstorm gameplay here was a prototype to what we would get in Doom: Eternal which indeed did it better. Despite the negative of that, the game has a good story and isn’t afraid to embrace it’s batshit grindhouse side which is cool. I love Frau Engel as a sick villain that’s great to hate. I love the use and freedom of dual wielding weapons. In the end, Wolfenstein 2 isn’t as good as the first but it’s still a pretty solid game worth checking out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
I love Space Jam. I grew up in the 90’s and from age 5-8 this was my favorite movie. Even then, I didn’t want a sequel. There’s nothing I liked in this trailer. Like nothing at all. The plot, the desperate pop culture pop ups, and I just don’t know why this exists. Well, I’m going to watch it for all of you who read our blog, but man I have a feeling this is going to hurt. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
So first, I have to say my dream came true in a sense. Yes, Torsten V is now a published author. Our very own Savior will be reviewing my book in due time, but for now it’s freaking awesome to get my work out there Barnes and Noble’s website (I’ll drop a link down below for those interested)
Sadly, due to forces beyond my control I had to take a life break on account of having to find a new place to live. Thankfully I found a much better place where I can continue to keep writing and growing my platform. I’ll be posting more as well so no need to worry. May the gaming gods bring you all glory.
I have waited a long time for this movie, and to be perfectly clear I have been a life long Godzilla fan. I watched them growing up with my dad, and loved the original Godzilla vs Kong. I even watched the original King Kong and it’s lesser known cousin of sorts Mighty Joe Young. (Different gorilla made by some of the same people)
That being said, I went into this movie with small expectations because all I wanted was to watch the monkey punch the lizard and the lizard set the monkey on fire. Oh and I really would have been upset if Kong didn’t Shove a tree or something down Godzillas throat.
Truthfully, I more or less got all of that. The action scenes were amazing with special effects that are probably second to none. If you are simply looking for a monster movie,where stuff gets destroyed and monsters beat the holy hell out of each other, this movie is absolutely amazing.
That being said, if you are looking for an amazing story, keep looking. The story here is passable at best with much of it clearly being tossed together to make there be a reason for them to fight with a surprise ending. I don’t say this as a bad thing, that is all these movies have ever needed and all they ever will need.
I loved this movie, and I will watch it again. There were things that bothered me but I won’t place them here to avoid spoilers, just know if you go into this wanting more than a passable story and giant monsters beating on each other, you will be disappointed. But if like me, if thats all you want, you will be more than happy. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
Clarice Starling is a promising cadet at the FBI academy pushing herself she can make it in the field. Driven and determined, she’s surprised when Jack Crawford asks her to question the legendary psychopath, Dr. Hannibal Lector. After the events of Red Dragon (book) he hasn’t responded to any questioning and his advice can become crucial in catching a disturbed killer called Buffalo Bill, who flays the flesh off of woman. When Buffalo Bill kidnaps a senator’s daughter, it’s up to Starling to try and discover the identity of this madman and save her, relying on Dr. Lector for advice and clues into the mind of madness.
So this book is pretty much what kids today would call a se-boot. You can pick it up just fine on it’s own without reading Red Dragon; their are callbacks to Graham and events of the first book but the info you get is pretty sufficient. While I personally like Will Graham better as a main character, Clarice is compelling in her own way and it is interesting to see how she interacts with familiar characters. Again, the villains steal the show. Lector is pretty damn memorable and Buffalo Bill is a creepy ass son of a bitch. The end comes together really nicely and there’s a lot of tension. The pacing is good and admittedly I never got bored with it. In the end I’d definitely say it’s well worth a read. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
As always the first thing I want to do is thank the people at Focus Home Interactive for tossing me a review copy of this one. It is always a pleasure and this time is possibly more than ever.
First, this is one of those classic rouge-likes that is easy to pick up and play. In fact the first level will really give you a false sense of security. It isn’t overly difficult and with the controls being as simple as they are how bad can it be? You simply dodge with one button counter with another and have different attacks with different weapons or hold them for charged attacks.
This quickly turns on you as different enemies have different timing to defend or dodge, and many will attack you at the same time so you will have to choose what is about to happen to you. Do you just take one hit and dodge another? Do you block one and hope you times it right to avoid the damage all together?
There isn’t exactly a right or wrong answer, it all comes down to your play style and what rooms are coming up. Some rooms allow you to heal, but just like entering each room builds up corruption so will healing in this way. The more corruption the more curses you get hit with. Some are minor like you can no longer collect gold from chest, others are worse like you lose health every few seconds.
The graphics and sound are solid but nothing to brag about, but I also wouldn’t complain. The enemies are nice and having to get yourself some light to hold off enemies doing extra damage is a nice touch. The game is both fair and unforgiving of your mistakes with plenty of weapons and such to unlock but not so many locked to start that you are handicapped to start. Your skill will matter we much we your load out.
Death also isn’t much of a punishment, in fact it is expected. Each run gives you random weapons to start and allows you to spend assorted currencies to upgrade your game permenently. There are even daily events for when you want something new. This was one of the better rogue-likes I have played, and will keep playing it. A solid 8 out of 10. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
