omal__jkt_aLL_r1.inddThinking about getting a copy of Bryan Lee O’Malley newest book Seconds.  He is most famous for the Scott Pilgrim books.  Which was turned into the movie Scott Pilgrim vs. The World in 2010.  Have all those books and the movie which are awesome.  His new one as a similar art style which came out this past summer.  Was going to buy it back then but it was sold out on Amazon.ca.  Think the next time I am placing a new order with Amazon will add this one to my list.  As I am typing this (October  19, 2014) they are $15.68.

OnAnySundayTheNextChapterA few years back got to see the 1971 motorcycle documentary On Any Sunday.  While it was old and date it was still very good and entertaining.  There is a sequel coming out on November 7, 2014.  It is called On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.  It is was made by the same family that made the first and along with Red Bull Media House.  The people at Red Bull are great at making spots videos so this documentary will look awesome.  Am sure it wouldn’t be long before it will be on VOD and on Blu-ray.  When it does plan on getting myself a copy.  You can check out the trailer > here or below.

FarCry4CoverAs the year is getting closer to the year being over all the big new games are coming out.  So there will be a torrent of new, pictures and video.  This one is co-op gameplay for Far Cry 4.  Co-op is this one is so much better than it was in Far Cry 3.  Because this time around you can run around the open world with a friend.  Doing all the crazy and fun things with someone else will be a blast.  Far Cry 3 is one of my all time favourites.  All so it was one a very few in which I got 100% complete in.  So I know I will love Far Cry 4 just as much or even better.  The game will be out November 18, 2014.  Which is a week after Assassin’s Creed: Unity which I will be buying as well.  Check out this new gameplay video > here or below.  The video is a little over ten minutes long showing off just has awesome this game is.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 9: Monsters, Misfits and Madmen Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 17, 2014 by getbent57

tmnt_vol9_Monsters_Misfits_Madmen.jpgThe stories and art get better and better with every new comic book/trade paperbacks that IDW has put out.  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Volume 9: Monsters, Misfits and Madmen is so well done.  There are three storylines going in this book.  Every one is very interesting and keeps you turning the pages to see what happens next.  It ended in a cliff-hanger.  Now have to wait to the next volume.  Which is number 10, called New Mutant Order.

IDW’s TMNT is a must read.   They started the storyline over in volume one.  Each one is better and better.  While I’ll wait for the next volume there will be a one of the side series out in December called Turtles in Time.  Enjoy these so much.  Think everyone sure check them out.

Fatboy_Slim-The_Rockafeller_SkankAll most forgot about musical throwback Thursday.  This week it is a classic from Fatboy Slim.  The song is Rockafeller Shank.  This is the first song I can remember hearing from Fatboy Slim.  Remember the song being a big hit back in 1998.  This was all so (I think) the first CD single I bought.  It is off his 1998 album, You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby.   Check out out the video > here or below.

RPG Maker VX Ace

RPGMakerVXAce.pngGot around to trying out RPG Maker VX Ace this past weekend.  Have played around with RPG Maker XP.  Which they are both kind of the same VX Ace is much more streamed lined.  My goal is still to make a game but first need to learn how to use this program.  Found a great tutorial > here.  You can read it right on the website.  There is a download button but you have to sign up at the Scribd.com site.  How ever the user has posted a link to were you can download a PDF and a copy of the game you will make using the tutorial.   Have gone though the first 30 pages or so.  It is very helpful.  All so found another useful site rpgmaker.net.  There are lot of tutorials there as well along with lots of other stuff.

Lego Simpsons Minifigures

LEGO-Simpsons-MinifiguresOne of my things to do to kill time is walk around stores to see what I might find.  While a Walmart a few days back.  Came across Lego Simpsons minifigures.   There are 16 in total to collect.  They cost around $4.00 for a blind bag.   So you don’t know which one you are getting.  I understand why they do this so its no be deal.  They had about ten or so on a clip strip.  Bought four of them.  Which you can see below.  Think I will go back and buy the rest before they are all gone.  These are a must have for any Simpson fan.  The one I got are  Nelson Muntz,  Krusty the Clow, Maggie Simpson and Itchy.
