GameOfThronesSeason3Blu-rayHave been waiting for months now for February 18, 2014.  If you follow this blog you will know that is the day season three of Game of Thrones is out on Blu-ray and DVD.  While I was on my lunch break went and got myself a copy.  Wasn’t the only one from work to do so.   Just like the other two season the box set  comes with all kinds of extra features.  There are 12 audio commentaries as well as all kind of other extras.  This is the only show or movie for that matter where I listen to the audio commentaries .  Because sometimes you get a bit more info on the show and how it all came together and behind the scenes stuff.  Find all that very interesting.  Now looking forward to my day off to have a Gaam of Thrones binge.

Batman: Knightfall Volume One Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 16, 2014 by getbent57

BatmanKnightfallVol1.jpgHave finished reading volume one of the Batman: Knightfall series.  When I first started reading this it felt like there was some thing missing.  There are some characters I kind of knew about.  But not there backstory.  It starts off with a great backstory of Bane.  But there is none talking about Jean-Paul Valley (he takes over as Batman).  I am sure that the character has introduced before this story takes place.  But it would have been nice if they included it.  The first half of the book was a bit boring.  Felt like it was missing pieces.  How every about half way though.  It gets into a story with Scarecrow.  Which is really good.  Then the last of the book is really good as well.  The story flowed together nicely.  Things were explained.  Still while leaving it open for the next volume.

Really like reading this.  Even if the first part of the book feels like it is missing parts.  The last half of it makes up for it.  Now can’t wait to read volumes two and three.  Its hard to give a score since there are three books to this series.  They are like one whole over arcing story.  Will score each volume then score the whole thing when I am done reading them all.

Playstation Vita

SonyNGP.jpgThinking about getting myself a PlayStation Vita.  They are pretty cheap now.  The going price is $200.  There is a new slim version out in some parts of the world.  At some point there will be a slim one out in North America.  So think that might drive the “fat” versions price down.  The reason I am thinking about getting one because it can work with the PS3 and more so with the PS4.  Don’t own a Playstation 4, but will at some point.  Another good thing is if you get Playstation Plus it will cover all three devices.   With Plus there are free or cheap games out every month to download.  On the other had.  I do own a PSP.  Got that the day it came out.  Thought it would be awesome.  It is kind of cool but gave up playing it.  The games were not that good.  All so it hurt my hands after playing for awhile.  The Vita is much better that way.  Just don’t know if I will use it enough to justify the price.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Community Challenges

Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on February 14, 2014 by getbent57

AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag.jpgYes, once again I am talking about Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.  This is by far the best Assassin’s Creed game and all so on my all time favourites list.  Talking about this game again because last night (February 13, 2014).  Started to play and a little box at the bottom of the creed pop up saying you are ranked 10th in the world for the community challenge.  If you are wondering what they are.  They  are like mini missions that take place that everyone playing the game can take part in.  For example, one might be plunder five ships.   There is a main goal set some thing like 300 000 ships.  Every one as a set number like five to add to the over all goal.  Of course you can do more than just five ships.  When the main goal is reach a prize (an item) to us in the game is unlocked.

The one going on right now is to use your pistols to take out the bad guys.  When I seen the box pop up.  I was like no way I am tenth over all in the world.  When I check the leaderboards there was my ID at number ten.  Got thinking I wonder if I can make it to number one.  So I set out to so that.  And guess what, I did.  Have never been at the top of any game leaderboard ever.  Oh, I do have proof took pictures of the leaderboards.  They are below.

GTAOnlineMassacreSpecialThere is some new content coming to Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online which will be out this Friday (February  14, 2014).  Which happens to be Valentine’s day.  So the new DLC/content is named right, The GTA online Valentine’s day Massacre Special.  You can read all about it > here.  If you don’t want to read that here is a quick break down.  There is a new weapon called Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun.  A new car.  Think 1920’s gangster car.  Which is called Albany Roosevelt.  New attire which is 1920’s style.  There will all so be 10 new jobs as well.  This content will only for a limited time.  But once you have it in your inventory you will get to keep them for good.  I guess I will have to load up GTA Online to check out this stuff.  Has been a few months since I have played this game.


This update is available now (Feb 13, 2014).  Have download this new update.  Just to check out the new stuff.  Bought myself a new blue pinstripe suite with matching hat.  All so bought the Gusenberg Sweeper.  Which looks just like a Tommy Gun.   On another note they are having a Valentine’s Weekend Massacre Social Club Online Event this weekend.  You can check info on that > here.

Batman: Arkham Origins

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , on February 12, 2014 by getbent57

BatmanArkhamOrigins.jpgHave picked up a copy of Batman: Arkham Origins.  It was on sale for $40 so I had to get it.  This is one of the games on my  have to get and play list.  Loved the first to Arkham games so I think this one will be awesome as well.  Mind you I haven’t played it yet.  That is because I am still playing Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.  So now I have three new unopened games on my desk.  One being Arkham Origins next is Sly Cooper Thieves in Time then Dishonored.  Not sure what to play after Black Flag.  It will be hard to decided what to play.  Might have to flip a coin.  Never had this many games just setting there not played.  Most times I get a game play it until I done with it then get a new one.  May be any one reading this can help me out.  Pick one you think I should play and leave it in the comments section.

Ender’s Game Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , on February 11, 2014 by getbent57

EndersGameOne of the movies I have been wait to see is out on DVD/Blu-ray now, Ender’s Game.  It is based off the 1985 book which shares the same name, Ender’s Game.  The story set in the future where the military takes very smart young kids for training for a future war.  They do this because earth was attacked 50 years earlier.  They have been preparing for them to come back.  While the movie falls into to your standard military boot camp flick.  Where the main character has to fight against the bullies, find friends and “save the day”.  The ending of movie is something must different than I thought it would be.  Which makes it worth watching

This movie looks great.  Lots of interesting things happen.  It moved at at good pace just left like it was missing some pieces.  While most of the movie is made up a stuff we have all seen a thousand times.  The end of the movie kind of makes up for it.  This is a rent.

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , on February 9, 2014 by getbent57

AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag.jpgEver since I started to play Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and made it to Nassau (an island in the game) there is a background song or ambient song playing.  It is one of the best things I have ever heard in any game.  In fact when ever it would start to play I would stop what ever I was doing just to listen.  All so found this song is used when you visit Kingston was well.  Wanted to find out what it was called.  Didn’t have any luck.  How ever did find it on YouTube.  Which that video is > here or below, they are calling it Kingston & Ambient Music #2.  Give it a listen. It is even better with headphones on.
