Elite Dangerous Beyond 2.4

This week Frontier released more info on what is beyond the 2.4 update. Its a lot to go thru so I leave you with a video from Obsidian ant



Godzilla vs Spacegodzilla

This actually may be my least favorite Godzilla movie. It wasn’t so much bad as it was weird. The basic story is after the Godzilla Vs Mothra movie some of their genetics got into space,weird space things happened, and Spacegodzilla was created. They tossed in a baby zilla and a baby Mothra some flying robot with a drill. It was just all over the place.

Some psychics tried to control Godzilla with their powers. Another guy wanted to kill him. It just seemed like there was far to much going on.

The fight scenes however were pretty awesome and I have to admit the monster looked pretty cool. As I said, probably my least favorite Godzilla movie but still not really a bad movie. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Cat People (1942)

Cat People has one of those sensationalized B-picture premises and there are moments when its meager aspects let slip that this is a low-budget effort, but within those restrictions, it moves with a certain purpose and chilliness. It’s true that producer Val Lewton had a B-movie renaissance going on at RKO Studios and Cat People […]

Wolfenstein 2:Nazi Trouble?

Wolfenstein 2 is set to release soon, but has run into some trouble. But to understand that trouble we do need to look at the series history a little.

Wolfenstein 3d released way back in 1992 and outside of Germany it saw very few problems. Germany to this day has very strict anti swastika/nazi policies to my understanding. The story was about an American named BJ attempting to escape Nazis and kill Hitler.

The series has changed since than, but has always involved Nazis. It now mostly involves an alternative timeline where Nazi Germany won WW2 and has taken over the world and you essentially are helping fight back. All good so far.

Recently a trailer released and there was a line as you can see in the picture above “NO MORE NAZIS”

Now some of you may not believe this or will think it was one or two people bored and trolling. And honestly if I hadn’t watched it unfold live on Twitter I probably wouldn’t believe this either. Many people were actually upset and viewed the story line of a 20+ year old game series as a political statement. Yes you read that correctly. I will say again just in case you think it was one of my many many typos or mistakes. Many people believe the story of a 20+ year old series is now a political statement.

I don’t like to be political but regardless when did saying hey Nazis are bad become a political standpoint instead of a default setting anyway? Hopefully this won’t harm what appears to be an amazing game, may the gaming gods bring you glory.

My 5 Favorite Monsters

These are my 5 favorite monsters in no real order.

Love me some Godzilla. A huge fire breathing lizard created by nuclear testing. Some think he is evil, some think he simply exist. Either way he is a reminder of the folly of man.

The infamous Count Dracula. No list would be complete without the most famous vampire of them all. Many stories about what he is capable of exist but he is always dangerous and never sparkles.

Dragons, Earth cultures are full of them. From Chinese dragon gods to European knights fighting them and many many more. Many forms exist and all are powerful and ferocious and most importantly, they look really cool.

Ghost. Are they real? Who knows, but who doesn’t love a good ghost story? For thousands of years legends have persisted in every culture on Earth from Casper the friendly ghost and helpful ancestors to murderous poltergeist. Real or not they make for great movies and great campfire stories.

Release the Kraken! Possibly one if the more iconic lines in movie history. That is not why it made my list however. Sea monsters are inherently scary because even today we have no idea whats at the bottom of most of the ocean. The idea of some huge monster down there suddenly crushing your ship is just scary for anyone.

So let me know which ones you like that I missed, and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
