Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 31, 2014 by getbent57

BatmanAndSonA few post back talked about the next DC Universe Animated, which is called Son of Batman.  Which is based of 2006 story arc called Batman and Son.  So I had to check out more on this since it sounded really good.  Found out there is a new version of of the trade paperback coming out February 4, 2014.  This new version is all most 200 pages longer.  Adding this book to my wish list.  There are so many of these trade paperbacks/graphic novels I want to get.  This is another for my list.  But before I get any new ones must finish reading the Batman: Knightfall series.

Twine.jpgWas going though some of my old posts and realised that I have started or planed to start all kinds of projects.  The ones I have started never got finished and the ones I thought about never got started.  So on January 24, 2014 got back to work on a project I started back in February 2013.  Thins one has me using the program called Twine.   This lets you make a text based choose you own path program.  Some thing like those choose you own adventure books.  Mind you it can do a lot more than that.  The plan is to make a simple story with some comic book like drawings worked in.  So far the story is done and set in the program.  Have started the drawings now.  Mind you I can’t draw very well.  They look like the same way I used to draw when I was a kid.  So I guess that will be my “style”, lol.  The goal is to finish this and have it some were on this blog of all to see.  Not sue how that is going to work.  Since I have tired running a few test within WordPress.  Which didn’t work.  So will have to think of something new.

2D Boxshot Wizard v1.1There is yet another cool looking game coming out some time in the future I want to talking.  It is called Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.  This looks like we will finely get a great Lord of the Rings game.  Most time Lord of the Rings games are just ok or very bad movie tie-ins.  This game how ever has it own back story and lead characters.  It is set take place between the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings.  Check out a game play video > here or below.  The game does look very fun.  They have mixed in some Assassin’s Creed and Batman Arkham elements.  Not sure when it will be out.  Let another game to keep my eye on.

KingdomComeDeliveranceThere is a very cool looking game coming out some time in 2015, may be.  It is called Kingdom Come: Deliverance.  What makes this game stand out besides how beautiful it looks.  Is that fact it is an open world RPG set in medieval Europe.  You might be saying that not so special.  Well it is special because it’s an RPG with out dragons, magic or wizards.  They are going for a more realistic medieval world. If you check out their trailer/Kickstarter video > here or below.  You will see how good this game looks and all so the lead guy from the team talks about it.  All very cool.  If you check out there Kickstarter page they go into lots of detail all about the game.  Will be keeping my eye on this project.

batman_1966Have some cool news to share the 1966 Batman TV show is coming to DVD.  The 1966 Batman movie has been on DVD for years. For some reason the show never was.  Mind you can still see the show on TV all these years later.  I can remember when I was a kid this show used to air Sunday mornings.  Used to think is was silly but still watched it.  A few years back seen it again on Teletoon Retro.  That is when I got it.  I was silly on propose.   Warner Brothers has said there will be a complete DVD box set coming out some time this year (2014).  If it is not to over priced I can see myself picking up a copy.  Never see all 120 episodes.  Will be back with more info when there more to share.

Dishonored.jpgWas killing some some at lunch the other day.  Wal-mart  had copies of Dishonored on sale for only $20 .  This is one of those game I have wanted to try but never got around to it.  So for $20, I couldn’t pass that up.  Mind you I will not be playing it for awhile yet.  That is because I am still playing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.  Still no were close to finishing that.  When I do give this game a try.  Will be back with my impressions.  Heard lots of good things about his game.  Seen lots of video and it does look great.

Top Gear: Polar Special

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on January 23, 2014 by getbent57

TopGearPolarSpecialWhile still waiting for series twenty one of Top Gear.  Went through the list of episodes and specials.  Then realized that I have ever seen the Polar Special.  Seen lots of clips but never the full thing.  So I had to check it out.  Driving trucks to the North Polar sounds like it might be a bit easy.  But you will see (if you never seen it like me) that is not the case.  While it is still a TV show you can see how much work it really is.  Can see it on there faces.  All so how the start acting towards each other.  While this is a very good special their best (and my personal favourite)  to date has to be their Vietnam Special.  Top Gear is one of those shows I cannot get enough of.
