Motorcycle Soon

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on March 21, 2012 by getbent57

These past few days have been really nice weather wise.  There has been a lot of motorcycles out.  Can’t wait to get mine out soon.  Went and got the plate sticker today (March 21, 2012).  Hope next week I will be able to get it out and ready for the first ride of the year.  Looked at the seven day forecast and it doesn’t look that promising.  Looks like it will be cold again with some snow.  But things can change.  Plan to take my bike into the shop for a good once over to check all the cables, brakes and what not.  It is inspected till 2013 but the motorcycle is an 2006 so I think it would nice to be sure that every thing is tip top.  Just know it will be a giant pain in the ass because the local shop all ways have some sort of problem.  Any who can’t want to get our ridding again.  Will be post pictures and or video when i do.

The Walking Dead Game

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 20, 2012 by getbent57

TheWalkingDeadGame Still on a waking dead kick so it nice today to see a trailer out of The Walking Dead Game – A Telltale Game Series.  It is being called a game series because there will be five “episodes” coming out on PSN, XBox live, PC and Mac staring some time in April.  I think most Telltale games are like this.  It is hard to tell from the trailer (below) what the game play will be like.  How ever found a good game play video on YouTube > here.  It looks interesting.  The game play seems to be like a point can click adventure with some camera control.  Would like to try it when it comes out.  A demo would be nice but don’t think that will happen since the first episode will cost $5.

The Walking Dead Season Two Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 19, 2012 by getbent57

Season two of The Walking Dead ended last night (March 19, 2012).  Knew it would be a good episode to end the season and it was.  One of the great things about this show is they answer the question they bring up.  They may leave you hanging for an episode or so but they all ways tell you what is going on.  They did answer a lot question but all so asked a few to keep us hanging to next season.

!—Stop reading here if you have not seen it yet –!

They introduce new cool character, with a sword and two zombies on chains.  It only a short clip but very cool.  After looking into who this is, the character is called Michonne.  She is a big player in the comic books.  At the very end you get a glimpse of were season three will take place, a prison.  This is all so a big set piece in the comics.

!– Spoilers are over  –!

Really enjoyed season two.  It helped a lot they have more episodes to flush out the story and characters.  I know there are some people out there complaining there wasn’t enough zombie fighting scenes.  My take is if you put too much of that in it takes away from what the story really is, people trying to survive.  Look forward to season three which will have 16 episodes.  My guess it will start back up in October.

Police Squad!

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , on March 18, 2012 by getbent57

PoliceSquad If you have seen any of The Naked Gun movies (if you haven’t what is wrong with you) you might know that it was based of the shorted lived TV show called Police Squad! In Color.  Have never seen this show but last night a friend show me a clip on YouTube.  Only watched the first few minutes and I was busting a gut.  It is full of crazy sight gags and world play.  So today I watched the first episode which happens to be on YouTube (video links below).  The show was funny as hell.  It is a shame it only lasted six episodes.  Not sure if all six are on YouTube.  Plan to look because I want to see them all.  I know you can buy it on DVD > here.

Elder Scrolls MMO?

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on March 17, 2012 by getbent57

Was reading this > article today saying there might be an Elder Scrolls MMOG in the works.   Have heard this rumour lots of times before.  They are saying that it will be unveiled in May they shown off at this years E3.

This might be an online game I might be interested in.  Have tired a few over the years.  Play for a bit but could never stick with them.  It would be sweet if it played something like Skyrim.  But I doubt that.  Just know it will look pretty sweet.  Time will tell if it is just another rumour or not.  If it is true I will be talking about it for sure.

Game of Thrones: Blu-ray Update

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2012 by getbent57

Just finished watching the fifth episode of Game of Thrones on Blu-ray.  Have to say the show is even better on Blu-ray.  Love this show much after watching the first two episodes I went back and watched them again with the commentary on.  Don’t often do that because I find it boring.  But not with this show.  Did skip the commentary on episode three because it was three of the kids talking.   They kept going on about how that actor was great, oh I just lover her in this scene and what not.  So I shut that off.   Not all the episodes have commentary but if they I will go back and watch/listen again.   All the cool extras are on the last disc.  Looking forward to watching them as well.   Will put up a full review when I am done watching everything.  But you call all ready guess what I am going to score it.

Florence And The Machine – Seven Devils

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , on March 15, 2012 by getbent57

Ceremonials Have listened to the song Seven Devils by Florence + The Machine very day since I heard it in the new Game of Thrones trailer.  Have talked about their music before.  They have a lot of great songs.  This one is off their newest album called Ceremonials.  While there is no official music video, the one below is just the song with a static background.  I don’t even think this song was released as a single yet.  Enjoy this song very much.  You might too give it a listen.

The Walking Dead: One Episode Left

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 14, 2012 by getbent57

There is only one episode left in season two of The Walking Dead.  Kind of sad that it will be over but I can’t wait to see what’s going to happen.  I know there will be a big cliff hanger for sure.  Making us wait for season three.  Have to say the second last episode, number 12 called Better Angles, was the best one yet.  Right from the opening shot I knew some great things were going to happen and boy did they ever happen.  They crammed so much win it will be hard to beat.  Not going to say any thing that went on just in case any one that is reading this hasn’t seen it yet.

All this season I did not look at any of the previews for the upcoming episodes or read any thing.  But last night I fell into a trap.  Was reading something unrelated on a news site on they right hand side they had a picture from the last episode.  It kind ruined one of the surprises I think.  How ever, one thing lead to another and ended up watching the preview.   It looks pretty awesome.   Sunday March 18, 2012 is the day.

DiRTShowdown Well Gamespot.com put out a nice article today about DiRT Showdown.   They have some exclusive game play videos.  Showing off five of the game modes and five tracks.  It is looks pretty good.  Be sure to check that out > here.  Loved the first three DiRT games.  While this one is not the next one on pre say, more of a spin off.  If it plays and handles like the others it will be funny for sure.  I know I will be buying it.  Has been a long while since there has be a good demo derby game out.  Below is the the exclusive trailer Gamespot.com has.

Extreme Frontiers: Racing Across Canada

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 12, 2012 by getbent57

ExtremeFrontiersBook There is still know word if or when Extreme Frontiers: Canada is going to air on Canadian TV or be out on DVD.  Do have some good news though the book by Charley Boorman called Extreme Frontiers: Racing Across Canada from Newfoundland to the Rockies  will be available May 1, 2012.  I know will be buying it.  Have all five of his other books.  Just wish they would put out the DVD’s to go all long with them.  They did for three of the adventures but not the last few.  Well they have in other place just not the North American market.  Looking forward to reading this book.  Really enjoyed all his others.
