X- Men

xmen

Of all the things people said would come in the year 2000, something did change. Superhero movies stepped up there games ten fold. The first to begin the trend was X-Men.

In the debut film we are introduced to a world dealing with mutants, people with powers that normal people find dangerous. Mutants are often faced with hate and fear. Charles Xavier, a paraplegic telepath and founder of Xavier’s School for the Gifted believes man and mutant can peacefully co exist. Magneto, Charles’s old friend and holocaust survivor, believes they never will and mutants must assert there dominance over man. The two leader’s paths cross over a mysterious badass mutant named Wolverine and a young, dangerous women named Rogue and a plot by Magneto to kill the world’s leaders…

Almost two decades old, I’m glad the movie still holds up well. There are some damn great performances in it: Sirs Patrick Stewart and Ian Mckellan as Prof. X and Magneto, as well as Hugh Jackman’s iconic performance as Wolverine. There is a cool list of supporting characters and a good balance between action and drama. I do really recommend this film as a tried and true of the genre. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

The Vault (2017)

Sometimes you just need to rob a bank. Sometimes you don’t want to work, so you need to rob a bank. Other times you piss off the wrong people and owe a shit ton of money and they make you rob a bank. That is sort of what this movie is about.

The movie starts off with a job interview and an angry customer, and we quickly discover a few of the people in the bank happen to be robbers. What they weren’t counting on is back in the early 1980’s someone else robbed this same back, lost their mind and killed everyone in the back. Now this bank is haunted as hell, and these bank robbers are about to have a world of problems.

The idea sounds good, and it has its moments but honestly the movie is a lot of standing around and talking. The movie drags on quite a bit at times and admittedly I found myself wishing it would just end. Towards the end it does get better tho the ending is pretty predictable. I would’t recommend this one. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Archie Vs Predator

archie v pred

What happens when spring break for the Riverdale kids becomes a bloodbath and a certain dread-locked extraterrestrial with a bad attitude and a plasma castor comes to visit? This hilariously absurd comic crossover, that’s what. Archie and his friends go to a tropical island for break, enjoying there usual shenanigans until something catches Betty and Veronica cat fighting on the beach, and takes this as a act of conflict. An invitation amongst warriors. Teens begin going missing, being found dismembered all over the island, and Archie’s group barely survives. Relieved, they go back home, enjoying high school life and milkshakes- until the soda-jerk’s head randomly explodes in front of them from a unseen origin, just a quick burst of light. Now the hunt is on in Riverdale as Archie, Betty, Veronica and the rest of his friends must battle the badass Predator.

This is one of my favorite comic book reads. Funny, crazy, and just so WTF. There is 4 comic books or a graphic novel so it’s a quick read. I never read a Archie comic but I’m a fairly ample Predator fan and I can tell you they did him justice. I will watch Riverdale if they devote a season to this. I recommend it for a great laugh and some awesome Predator kills. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

Fable 4 Rumor, and what I would love to see

download (13)

Recently a rumor has popped up that Fable 4 isn’t just a fantasy, but a game that is actually in development that we will likely see at this years E3 event, some info on that here from onmsft . This however is just what I would love to see.

I remember many years ago as a young savior waiting for the original Fable, excitedly. That day came and I took a bus to my local Gamestop which at the time was the next town over, also required me to cross the highway on foot buy my game, cross back hike it about quarter mile back to the mall then wait for the bus to go home. It took half the day. Half the day I could have played my damn game. A game I loved.

Eventually Fable 2 came out, this time it was a quick drive to that same Gamestop, quick trip home and began playing what is to this day one of my favorite games I have played. The sheer amount of stuff to do was great as was the combat.

Finally the day of Fable 3, and yes that same Gamestop. This time however, I was not as happy with the game. The game wasn’t as fun, the whole being a king thing never even felt special and while the game wasn’t bad that magic just felt lost.

Fable 4 however, I am hoping for a darker gritter experience. When we last left Albion the world wasn’t what it once was, but I really want to see that in between time of Fable when the world changed so drastically.  The idea of playing a hero in the world as it goes to hell struggling to keep it together just appeals to me.  The combat system is good and changing that to much would probably be a catastrophe but being able to change magic on the fly faster would be nice as well as having more effect on your body when you use them. I remember being stingy with my magic in the original because I didn’t want to age in the original and always enjoyed that. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Dead By Daylight, Saw DLC Preview

Saw returns with a vengeance in 2018. Jigsaw hit blu-ray and dvd and Dead by Daylight. Watching bits and pieces, I can’t lie, the game looks like a horror nerd’s dream come true. I drooled (figuratively of course) at the footage of Michael Myers go. We’ve also gotten additions with Freddy Kruger and Leatherface as well. Now comes Saw’s turn, getting to play as the infamous pig-masked stalker looks cool and the Gideon Meat Plant looks like a perfect match for the game. Enjoy the bloody goodness as we play a game and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Crossing Souls

Crossing Souls is an action adventure game where a group of kids find a powerful object they don’t quite understand, and must traverse two planes of existence to save their town from a government conspiracy. As the trailer shows it borrows heavily from decades of pop culture references and seems quite interesting, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
