Back in March it was announced that Whose Line is it Anyway? was coming back to TV on The CW network. This is one of the funniest show ever. So happy it is coming back. Now we know when it will air, July 16, 2013. The show will have the same set up but with a few small changes. There is a new host, Aisha Tyler. It will have Colin Mochrie, Ryan Stiles, and Wayne Brady will be back with a special guest each week. Found a small preview that Colin Mochrie posted on Twitter. You can see that > here or below. Of course they all look older but they are still very funny. The only thing that might end up bugging me is the camera panning to Aisha Tyler while she does this fake laughing. That might get old quick. Time will tell. How ever can’t wait to see new episodes of the show.
Have got the retro game bug. Dug out my old Sega Genesis. Have not played this in a very long time, think some time back in late 90’s. How ever did/do play some of the games on my Sega Genesis Nomad. Once I found it and the power cord for it. Cleaned the dust off, then hook it up to my TV it worked great. First tried Comix Zone. This is one of my favourite games. Even thou it is difficult. I just put in the invincibility cheat. That is what is great about these old games most of then had cheat codes. At first the game didn’t work so I tired Vectorman 2. Remember liking this game, then remembered why I stopped playing it. It was because I couldn’t get past the second level. Keep getting lost. Have know idea were to go. Put Comix Zone back in once it the dust was nocked out of it. It worked great. Mind you it doesn’t look the best because these games were not designed for HDTV’s. Next I tried Batman Returns. Forgot how bad this game is. It is very difficult. Have a few more games to try. List below.
Last week took a road trip to Halifax and stopped at Strange Adventures. When I was there picked up a copy of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Change is Constant Volume 1. Had know idea what the story was about just saw that it was volume one with TMNT in it. The story is awesome. It is a new take on origin story of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It has all the characters you know but there are some differences. Splinter and the turtles are used in law run by Baxter Stockman. April O’Neil is a newly hired inter at the law. Things happen (don’t want to spoil any thing) and the turtles/Splinter come into contact with the ooze. Also Casey Jones is younger and has a different back ground. Really enjoyed this new take on the story. It is more of an adult take on the story as well. The art is very nice too look at as well. Highly recommend checking this out. Even if you are not into comics but remember the Ninja Turtles from you childhood.
This a an excellent re-boot of the Ninja Turtles origin. After reading it and loved it want to get the rest of them. Did some research and turns out there (so far) five volumes. Now I have to get them all. Since I will not be heading back to Halifax any time soon will have to order theses off of Amazon.ca.

A few days ago posted the teaser trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins. Then said the full trailer would be out May 20, 2013. Well today is the 20th. The trailer is now out > here or below. The trailer is pretty sweet. Would love to see a full length movie with the animation they have got here. Some of the best I have every seen. They move like they are real. The snow looks like real snow. In the trailer you will see Batman fighting Deathstroke. While that awesome fight is going on you will see Deadshot. Then at the end you will see (which I think will be the main bad guy in the game), Black Mask. The trailer is so awesome I am going to watch it again. If you check it out make sure it is full screen and in HD.
Am very impressed with season one of Arrow. All 23 episodes are very good. Can only think of one that was just ok. That was a standalone episode. All the rest followed the same story arc. Really like TV shows that move along one big arc. While asking questions then answering them and leaving you wanting more. When I first heard about this show thought they would go down the road like the shows of the past. Each episode have a bad guy do something evil and then it is up to the good guy to save the day. It was very refreshing to see a “super hero” show that was darker and people die. The show does have its love story lines and family problems. How ever it is all ways changing. The characters do not stay the same thought out the whole season. The last two episodes of the season were the best. The main story got some closure. While leaving some things the be answered in season two.
If you have not seen this show yet, you are missing out. This is a very fun and interesting show to watch. After each episode you are left wanting to see more. That is the mark of a good show. Now that season one is over will have to sit back and wait for season two to start. Which is in October 2013. Season one will be out on DVD/Blu-ray September 9, 2013. I will be picking up a copy.

There is a new Batman movie coming out next week, May 21, 2013. It is called LEGO Batman: The Movie – DC Super Heroes Unite. It is not a DC Universe Animated movie. This movies is based of the two LEGO Batman games. I am not sure but think this is the first time Traveller’s Tales or TT Games have made a animated movie. If you watch the trailer > here or below you will see it looks just like all the LEGO game TT is famous for. I know it is aimed at kids. However it does look very funny. Even laughed at the jokes in the trailer. Will be picking this up next week. Another thing cool about this is, it comes with a Superman Mini LEGO figure.
