Godzilla King Of Monsters Trailer Recreated With Toho Films

Yes, you read that headline right. A fan uploaded a video on Youtube recreating the latest Godzilla trailer using the original Toho films.

This is awesome to me on so many levels not just because I love Godzilla but because there is still enough of a following for this to even happen. So check this out and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

star wars shadows

Love isn’t perfect and no journey ever begins with a perfect step. I got my N64 at age 7, my first ever game system, and suddenly my life was changed. The first game I ever got was Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire. Set between the events of The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi we follow some dude named Dash Rendar who looks like young Hano Solo but ain’t Han Solo because… well ,reasons. The game begins during the battle of Hoth via Empire, and we’re treated to a pretty impressive snowspeeder segment that is pretty badass. A majority of the game we play as Dash as he shoots and platforms his way across different worlds and bosses. At first, the game is fine. Damn near awesome I’d say. First 3 stages run good but things start to unravel. Stage 4, for most of my young life was the hardest shit I had to deal with and that evil mechanical son of a bitch I G 88 was the bane of my existence. A decade later, after some hard gaming experience I kicked his ass only to really see the flaws unfold. Boba Fett’s level pissed me off enough where I nearly smashed the TV and controller and well…I never finished it.

Shadows of the Empire isn’t a bad game, regardless of how it aged, but damn it’s flawed. Platforming can be a royal pain in the ass, the shooting can be crap and feel automated, and there isn’t much really tying it into the Star Wars we know but it is a interesting time capsule of a game, though for the love of the merciful gaming gods find the cheat codes for it so you can unlock all the stages and get some booze for the horrors of Stage 6’s speeder bike controls. May the gaming gods bring you glory.

 

Onrush (PS4)

Onrush is one of this months free games for PSN and admittedly I wasn’t too happy at first. Soma isn’t exactly popular here at Savior Gaming and I am not a huge fan of racing games. Onrush, on the other hand, isn’t even truly a racing game. This will take some explaining.

First, there isn’t a starting and finish line, you simply go. There are two teams trying to score points by making each other crash or even crashing the random cars also on the track tho those are so much easier to crush.

Second, not every race is the same. Some will have you cruising through checkpoints to add time to your clock while attempting to stop the other team from doing the same, scoring points by not letting your clock hit zero.

The controls and graphics are amazing and easy to look at. It is actually quite easy to see why this game has such a cult following. The music is pretty great as well with a nice soundtrack.

The game isn’t perfect tho. Admittedly you can only crash cars for so long before you want something else to do and pretty much everything is existence is locked, from clothes to tricks to even gestures and it takes time to unlock them. This isn’t a deal breaker, but its enough to put me off. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

We Accept Her One of Us — Master Mix Movies

Freaks is a Pre-Code horror movie released in 1932. Way back then in early Hollywood, the Hays Code was a series of guidelines all films had to follow. We would later come to know it as the MPAA rating system. Freaks was among the earliest films to truly shock audiences. Less likely by today’s standards, […]

This seems like a classic 1930’s movie that I would never get around to watching but is worth seeing.

Left Alive: Gameplay Trailer

After what feels like months of waiting, we finally have a gameplay trailer for left alive, and honestly it kind of looks like The Division.

I don’t mean that as an insult by any means. Graphically it looks beautiful and I love any game that allows me to make choices that matter tho admittedly it makes me realize why I shouldn’t be allowed to make choices in the real world. I am a bit worried the game will primarily be escort missions involving getting people to shelters but I suppose in a few months we will find out. Until then enjoy the trailer, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Autism – Getting The Diagnosis — 16-Bit Dad

So one thing I haven’t really made that public about my family and I is the fact that, for the past year or so, we’ve been going through the steps to determine whether my daughter is autistic. Today, we got the final diagnosis, and by the fact that I am writing this, I’m sure you…

A very well written post, and as a father that has been through it I know exactly how that process feels and goes. The best advice I have ever gotten and could ever kid for anyone that just had a child diagnosed with autism is simple. Your child is your child, they have likes and dislikes just like anyone else. Theirs are just different. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
