Ouya.jpgHad a nice surprise in my emails the other day.  It was from the people at OUYA.  They sent me a code for a $5.00 credit.  To help me get back to playing.  Thought that was very nice of them.  It has been a few months since I have even turned on my OUYA.  Once I put the code in took a look to see what is new to try out.  There is all kinds of new games and apps.  There is one that caught my eye, Saga Heroes.   This is a very good looking top down RPG/Adventure game.  As a bit of a Diablo look.  Have download but yet to try it out.

Goat Simulator

GoatSimulatorYou might have heard of the silly game called Goat Simulator.  It first started off as a tech demo from the game company Coffee Stains Studios.  They put some videos up and the internet went nuts.  So they turned it into a real game.  Will be out on the PC April 1, 2014.  The game as you playing as a goat running around in a open world causing havoc.  There is all a bit of Tony Hawk tricks in there as well.  If you haven’t seen anything on it check out the very funny trailer > here or below.  But for even more fun you need to check out people from playing the game.  It will make you laugh for sure.  You can see that > here.

Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on March 29, 2014 by getbent57

AvengersConfidentialMost time I don’t pay much attention to the Marvel animated movies.  How ever the newest one, Avengers Confidential: Black Widow & Punisher caught my eye.  The only reason I decided to watch this was because of the Punisher.  Think he is a pretty cool character.  Before watching this looked up the plot, it has Black Widow and the Punisher teaming up to take out the terrorists. Who stole S.H.I.E.L.D technology.  This is a pretty standard plot.  Next took a look at the trailer > here and find out it has an anime look to it.

Well it is better than I thought it would be.  However not great.  It is so by the numbers with plot points and the twists we have see an millions times.  Which makes it a bit boring.  The animation was very well done.  Not a big fan of the anime style but it works for this type of movie.  The only thing I didn’t like about the animation was the lighting.  Has the over bloom FX thing going on.  This is worth checking out if you are a Marvel fan.  If you are not don’t think this will turn you into a fan.  It’s a rental at best.

X-MenDaysOfFuturePast.jpgThere is a new trailer out for X-Men: Days of Future Past.   When the first trailer came out in October I knew this movie would be good.  With this new one > here or below I know it will awesome.  Man this movie looks so good.  Some times comic book movies can just be ok and other times they get everything just right.  This one looks like they are not holding back.  It will be out May 23, 2014.  Will have to go see this one in theatres for sure.

Ninja_turtles_2014Well today (March 27, 2014) the first trailer for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is out.  You can check it out > here or below.  Have known they were making this movie for a long time.  There was been lots controversy around this movie.  Have read some of things people are saying about the trailer.  It just silly trying to compare your childhood memories to this new take on the Ninja Turtles.  While this movie has a much different look and take on the world.   That doesn’t mean it will not be any good.  Just have to judge it by itself and not to the past movies or TV shows.  The movie is set to come out August 8, 2014.  I plan to check it out.  Because you never know this could  be very good or really bad.

AssassinsCreed-TheAnkhOfIsisTrilogyOne of the books I ordered a few days back was Assassin’s Creed – The Ankh of Isis Trilogy.  This is collection of the first three Assassin’s Creed comic books.  As you might know that I am a big Assassin’s Creed fan.  Knew there was a comic book out there on the series but kind of forgot about.  Then came across this book so I had to look into.  From what I am read about the comic books is the story is about Desmond Miles and past lives that were not in the games. Looked up a few pictures of the art and it looked all right.  All so Sounded interesting so I had to buy it.    Will be back with an update or review at some point.

Game of Thrones Season 4

GameOfThronesSeasonFour.jpgYes, talking about Game of Thrones yet again.  We are so close to season four starting.  Aprils 6, 2014 is the day.  Think is is a good day to start because the week before another one of my favourite shows, The Walking Dead ends their fourth season.  Like the past three seasons there will be ten episodes.  All so like last season there will be one Sunday where  there will not be a new episode (from what I have read on Wikipedia).  We will have to wait an extra week.  So can’t wait to see what kind a crazy things will happen this season.

Far_Cry_logoA few posts back talked about the next gen Assassin’s Creed game, Assassin’s Creed: Unity.  Have some more Ubisoft game news to share.  There is Far Cry 4 in the works of the PS4 and Xbox One.  From the little bit a info I have read it  be out in early 2015.  The game will be set in the Himalayas.  So there will be some snow.  So that is cool.  They all so say you will be able to ride elephants.  The articles all so say the world will be set up similar to Far Cry 3.  Speaking of Far Cry 3, it is one of my all time favourite games.  So more of this type of game play, I am sold.   Will be watching out for more info to come during 2014 E3.

GameOfThronesTheGraphicNovelVolumeThree.jpgOrdered myself a copy of A Game of Thrones: The Graphic Novel: Volume Three.  Bought the first two volumes last summer.  Have been waiting to this one to come out.  It was released March 11, 2014.   As I am typing this is asking $18.77.  Which is a really good deal.  If I would have bought it at the local book store it would have been close to $30.  In order to get free shipping you have to spend over 25 dollars.  Was think was else I should get.  Went though some of the items on my wish list and got Assassin’s Creed – The Ankh of Isis Trilogy.  Will be back with a review then I finish reading it. But first I got to get thought some other books first.

AssassinsCreedUnityIt is still March so that means Ubisoft is announcing the next Assassin’s Creed game.  This one is called Assassin’s Creed: Unity.  The game take place during the French Revolution.  It will be a true next gen game.  Because it is only come the the PS4, Xbox One and PC.  Will be out some time during the holiday season.  The rumour that there will be an different AC game for last gen, PS3 and Xbox 360.   E3 2014 will be here soon.  That takes place in June so I am pretty sure they will be showing this or these games off.  You can check out a video that is alpha game footage > here or below.  If this how the game is going to look.  It will be pretty amazing.
