With achievements, controversary, microtransactions and toxic player bases, sometimes it’s easy to forget that video games are supposed to be fun. The classic Tony Hawk Pro Skater was one of the greatest chill games of all time. Picking from a list of legendary, classic skaters you can either free skate a series of classic parks, tour each park while trying to complete a series of tasks, or beat your friends high score, all while listening to some awesome old school tunes.
In terms of what came before, this joins Crash Bandicoot remastered in the host of amazing remasters. The game runs silky smooth and looks fantastic, complete with a great playlist of 90’s and early 2000’s music you can control without pausing the game. New additions including being able to share XP amongst skaters between games and creating your own crazy ass parks are fun additions that add hours to the game. I found myself having hours and hours of fun without frustration, reliving my youth. The only real complainant I have is that it’s a game I have to be I the mood for. In the end, this is a damn good remaster that’s a blast for the fans, well worth checking out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
So if you’ve kept up with the blog for a while, you’ll know I’m a upcoming writer and I love books. Sadly, until I become a legend of the craft like King, Tolkien, or Rowling, I’m stuck working a fulltime job like many fans of the written word. Audible gives me the freedom to dive into more books while living my life and doing me stuff. They have a huge list of books, podcasts, and audio dramas from hundreds of your favorite writers and celebrities. I myself have a subscription through Amazon Prime and with that I started with two credits for free books, gaining a free token every month; best of all you can keep the books you get as well as being able to get free books. My reviews for Alien: Isolation (audiobook) and Alien: Covenant (Audiobook) I experienced for free with my subscription.
First, I want to say this review isn’t sponsored, I’m just a huge. As someone who suffers from anxiety and depression, having a story to focus on helps me cope and get through the rough parts of the day. Whether a curious nerd who wants to compare there favorite shows so there source material or a hardcore reader, this service is well worth checking out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
I’m on the fence here. While I think the concept is cool and the animation is surprisingly good, sadly I think I’m starting to get worn out on the MCU. Bit by bit I find myself feeling fatigue for it. The show looks pretty cool and could be a nice addition to the MCU. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
Ok, I was never a fan of the original Wrong Turn movies but I respect them for what they were. I must admit though, this new one looks epic for the most part. It might be the creepy music but visually it looks like a huge upgrade. It looks like it could be pretty decent. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
I’m pretty confused what the hell is going on in this trailer and what the hell is supposed to be going in this show. I love Loki but why did he need a show of his own? He had a great arc throughout the MCU. While I’m not the most versed in Thor’s stories, I hope for the best in this series but I can’t say I’m ecited for it. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
I have to admit, Falcon’s Cap suit looks pretty badass in real life. With the exception of WandaVision, I’m actually kind of excited for this show on the account of Zemo’s return. While I love Falcon and Soldier, Zemo is one of my favorite Cap villains. So far the show looks pretty awesome and it’ll be fun to see. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
Of all the Alien stories I could have chosen in my dip into audiobooks, I decided to dive into the novelization of Alien: Covenant by Alan Dean Foster, who is a veteran of novelizing the Alien series. I always wanted to know if the Alien series could translate successfully into the written word and I’m happy to say that where I was hugely let down by Alien: Isolation (audiobook) , the audiobook for Covenant soared. Foster not only brought the story to life but fixed a lot of what was wrong with the movie. In my review, I said a huge problem was the lack of character development and the awkward pacing caused by the content crunched into the timeframe. Another bonus of the different medium is having the extra info and characterization explains some of the seemingly dumber moments rational. Foster also knew to touch up some of the dumber moments like the blood sliding and the “questionable” dialogue during the David/ Walter flute scene. The performance is extremely well done and adds a lot of atmosphere to the story and characters. Overall, I really enjoyed the book, more than the movie in fact and I’d recommend checking the book out if the movie let you down. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
While Andromeda was a huge letdown, I’ll never deny my love of the Mass Effect trilogy. The feelings I have are mixed at best. The possibility of another great Mass Effect warms my heart but will it be a continuation of the trilogy? A Andromeda sequel? Something new? Time will tell but it’s coming. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
Of the 3 Disney+ exclusive MCU shows, WandaVision is the one I’m waiting for the most. After everything we’ve seen, it’s basically the closest the MCU will get to the House of M and frankly I’m glad to see Scarlet Witch get some much needed attention. The show looks interesting and I’m can’t wait for it. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
