Sly Cooper: Thieves In Time

Sly_Cooper_-_Thieves_in_TimeOnce again was just in Wal-mart looking at all the games in the cheap section.  Found a great buy and had to get it.  The game is Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.  It was only $9.77.  Not bad for a game that is only a year old.  Don’t know much about this game other than it is the fourth Sly Cooper.  This is one of these cross platforms buys.  There is a code in the box for a PS Vita dowload.  Which makes the  less than $10 an even better buy.  The only problem is I don’t own a Vita (yet?).  This is all ways a great time to buy games.  Since the new consoles are out and there are lots of last gen games out there stores are trying to get rid of.

VicsBasementHave been listen to Vic’s Basement podcast for a long time now.  Have missed a few here and there.  How ever they are very good.  It is the guys form Reviews On The Run and EP Daily.  Taking about his podcast again because the last few they have had add video as well.  You can still listen all the same ways as before.  But now they are do the podcast live with streaming video.  If you miss it, later on you can listen and  or watch.  Have to say I like it much better that way.  You get to see how they react to each others jokes.  Plus they get to swear since its only on the internet. You can check out there latest one (number 82) > here or below.

Justice League: War Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on February 5, 2014 by getbent57

JusticeLeagueWar.jpgAll ways look forward to a new DC Universe Animated movie being out.  Justice League: War is the newest one out on February 4, 2014.  While I just have to buy this one since I own all the others.  Wasn’t to sure about this one at first.  From the clips I see it seems a bit flat and boring.  How ever after watching it they have proved me wrong.  This is another great DC animated movie.  This movie is based off of Justice League: Origin  which is part of The New 52.  Which is a total revamp/relaunch of the DC comic book lines.  So this movie is a bit of origin story.  It is a much different take on the origin story which is nice.

Another awesome watch.  Look great, sounds great, the action is great, the acting is great and it has some pretty good funny moments as well.  You can’t go wrong watching it very entertaining.  Not sure if non-comic book fans would like this since some many not know who all the characters are.  How ever this might get then interested.  As all ways they have another hit on there hands.  It is a must watch.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on February 3, 2014 by getbent57

AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag.jpgAs I am typing this (January 31, 2014) I have put in a bit over 38 hours into Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag.  The game says I am about 56% complete.   All this and still only done the first five memories.  Just love doing all the side stuff.  Just have to get every single collectable and upgrade.  This is by far my favourite Assassin’s Creed game.  Wasn’t to sure about the boat battles at first but once you get the hand of them it is very fun.  Just don’t take on boats that are higher in level.  While this a fun game to play still get the Assassin’s Creed rage every now again.  That is when you are chasing some one down or just running along and you start up climb up something you don’t want to or getting hung up on something else.  That being said the controls are so much better than the games before it and they were pretty good.  My goal is to get every unlock, collectable and upgrade.  There is still may to get even after 50% complete.  If you have never played an Assassin’s Creed game or haven’t in a long time.  This is the one to get.

SlyCooperMovieHave something cool to share.  Turns outs Sly Cooper is getting is own CG-Animated movie.  Back on January 28, 2014 they put out a teaser trailer.  Which is very funny.  You can see that > here or below.  The Sly Cooper games were all pretty good.  Think the movie will be a bit of an origin story.  Since the first game came out in 2002 for the Playstation 2.  The movie is not set come out until 2016.  Which is very far away.  In in mean time if you have a PS3 you can pick up a copy of The Sly Collection.  This a HD remastered versions of the first three games.  All one Blu-ray disc.

Inkscape

InkscapeFew post back talked about the project I am working on.  Am using my Wacom Bamboo Splash tablet with the drawing program called ArtRage 3 Studio.  While it is very cool software.  Want to try use something different.  All so wanted to try out a vector based software.  Because I like the the clean lines you can make.  Mind you most vector based programs can be hard to use at times and cost lost of money.  How ever found one open source and free called Inkscape.  As I am typing this post (January 27, 2014)  have yet to try it out.  Not even sure if my Bamboo Splash will work with it.  Will be back with an update when  I do.  This program does look pretty cool.  They have a great help/learn page.  With tutorials, videos and even books.
