The_Elder_Scrolls_Online_Tamriel_Unlimited.jpgIf you haven’t heard The Elder Scrolls Online is being rebrand/relaunched.  It will now be called The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited.  This is because they are getting rid of subscription fees on PC.  Which will be out on March 17, 2015.  All so because the game is coming to PS4 and Xbox One on June 9, 2015.  There is a new trailer out which you can see > here or below.  The game does look pretty cool.  Will be buying it.  Just not at launch.  That is because Batman: Arkham Knight will be out the week before.  The other is reason is because every time a new game comes out that is online or needs some what to be online never seem to work.  So will be waiting until all the bugs and problems will be worked out.

Hot Shots! Part Deux

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , on March 20, 2015 by getbent57

Hot_Shots_Part_DeuxThe other day Hot Shots! Part Deux was on TV.  So I had to watch.  For a movie that came out in 1993 and it is still pretty funny.  These movies with all the slap slick with tons of sight gags make me laugh every time.  My favourite when they rescue Rowan Atkinson at the end.  But he can’t run because his shoes were tired together.  Has stuck with me all those years and its till cracks me up.  The guy that directed, Jim Abrahams, was all so behind other awesome movie in the same vain.  Like Airplane, Police Squad! and the Naked Gun movies.  Not sure if any of these movies are on Netflix.  Will have to check that out.  Because they are all awesome.

Alien Ant Farm – Smooth Criminal

Alien_Ant_FarmIt is Thursday so that means it’s time for another musical throwback Thursday.  I can still remember when I first seen and heard Alien Ant Farm’s version of Smooth Criminal.  Think I listened to it about five times in a row.  Their take on this Michael Jackson song is pretty good in my opinion.  It is off their 2001 album Anthology.   Which was a big hit for them.  This is the only song I know from them.  It may be their biggest hit.  How ever they do have five studio albums.  Check it out > here or below.

Grand Theft Auto Online: Heists

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 18, 2015 by getbent57

GTA_Online_Heists.jpgNew mode for Grand Theft Auto Online, Heists got off to a bit of a rocky start.  That seems to be the trend with any new game or mode that is online.  It is fixed now.  But still haven’t tried it yet.  It takes a team of four people to play together.  Don’t feel like teaming up with strangers just try it out.  To be the leader in Heists you need to own a high end apartment.  Right now I am working on saving up the money to buy one.  Because have read that there is an introductory heist in which only needs two people.  So the next time my brother and I are playing.  Plan to try that out.  Will be back with update when that happens.

Minecraft: The Story of Mojang

Minecraft_The_Story_of_MojangIf you have seen a few of my posts the last few months you may know I have really liking Minecraft on my PS4.   This game has been very popular for many years.  I don’t know much about it other than its fun to play and there are all kinds of non-game products out there.  Remember hearing about the documentary,  Minecraft: The Story of Mojang a long while back.  It started off on a Kickstarter campaign.  It tells the story of the development of the gamer over a year it its official launch.  It premiered on Xbox Live on December 22, 2012.  After watching the trailer > here or below.  Wanted to watch this.  If you are interested to see this as well.  Found it on Archive.org > here.  My next day off plan to watch it.

On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on March 16, 2015 by getbent57

OnAnySundayTheNextChapter.jpgHave been waiting a very long time to watch On Any Sunday: The Next Chapter.  First was going to buy in off of Amazon.ca.  That had a listing it would be out February 10, 2015.  Went to order it on the tenth but the site said, “it would ship within 2 to 5 weeks”.   Later found a different listing saying it would be out March 3, 2015.  So on the third tried to order it and the same thing was there.  This pissed me off.  Ended up renting it off of the Google Play Store.’

Am glad I only rented this because it was a big let down.  It wasn’t very entertaining or interesting.  There is some good bits in there but that’s it.  They do some nods to the first documentary.  How ever they felt out of place.  Think the problem with this documentary is they tried to cram to much in and not letting some of the segments to be flushed out.  If you like motorcycles it worth checking out but not to own.  There is a much better documentary that is newish called Why We Ride.  Which is so much better.

The Walking Dead Companion Series

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on March 15, 2015 by getbent57

The_Walking_Dead_Companion_SeriesThere is some new news about The Walking Dead’s companion series.  The biggest part of the news is AMC has ordered two season of the show.  Which is pretty amazing since most TV shows have to air a pilot and then see how it fares with the audience.  The other part of the news is there will be six episodes which will air in late summer (2015).  Then the second in 2016.  If this show is on the same level as The Walking Dead it will be awesome.  Can’t wait to find out more about this show.  When there is more news I will be back to share it. You can read about it > here.

Marvel’s Daredevil Trailer

Netflix_Marvels_Daredevil.jpgLess than a month away from Marvel’s Daredevil being an Netflix.  All the episodes will be on there April 10, 2015.  Back on March 10, 2015 they but out a new trailer.   Which you can see > here or below.  It doesn’t look really good.  I don’t know much about the character other than he is a blind lawyer who fights crime at night.  Think the show being only on Netflix it can be more hard hitting and edger than on regular TV.  I will be checking it out.  Will be back with a review of the first of episode.  Do believe there will be 13 in all.

2015 Ducati Scrambler

Ducati_Scrambler_Urban_EnduroWe are a few weeks into March (2015) and Spring is very close.  So far my motorcycle withdrawal has been to bad, so far.  Have not looked at any of the new models yet.   Well other than the Ducati Scrambler.  There are four different version of the motorcycle.  They are all pretty cool looking.  But the the one I like the best is the Urban Enduro.   The prices are not bad either, around $10,000.00.  They only thing I don’t like is the advertising.  It seems to be gear towards hipsters.  Will be adding this to my list of motorcycles I want to get next.

New Order – Confusion (Pump Panel Reconstruction Mix)

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , on March 12, 2015 by getbent57

New_Order_Confusion_ (Pump Panel Reconstruction Mix)This weeks musical throwback Thursday picked a song from a movie soundtrack.  Way back in 1998 when the first Blade movie came out.  During the start of the movie there is a rave scene in a meat packing plant.  As the bouncer opens the door you hear a very cool song playing in the background.  If you never seen the movie or want to see that part again you can watch it > here.  All ways liked this song.  Years ago “found” version that were all way missed labeled.   The song is from New Order called Confusion (Pump Panel Reconstruction Mix).  This remix sounds nothing like the original.   Which I just listened to while working on this post.  Give the remix a listen > here or below.
