Mad_Max_Game.jpgThere is a new trailer out for the new Mad Max game.  The new trailer is called Savage Road.  Which you can see > here or below.  The game looks awesome.  The new trailer shows off more of the story elements.  As well as some combat.  Back in April (2014) there was a better trailer out.  Which showed real gameplay.  If you missed that one you can see it > here.  The game will be out September 1, 2014.  Unless it gets pushed back.  Which seems to be the trend with big budget games as of late.  E3 is coming up in a few weeks so I know we will get to see more of the game then.

The Walking Dead Compendium One Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 29, 2015 by getbent57

The_Walking_Dead_Compendium.jpgFinished reading the first The Walking Dead compendium.  May years ago read the first two or three trade paperbacks and really liked them.  All ways thought about getting all them but never did.  Years later the TV show started up and am a huge fan of the show.  Then this past December (2014) the first two compendiums were on sale so I bought them.   At first found it hard to get into.  This is because characters are different then from the TV show.  Once I got past that.  Really enjoyed reading it.  Ended up liking how the show and the comics differ.  While the the can share some of the same elements.  A lot of the events do not turn out the same.

Enjoyed reading this very much.  It is cool to see what elements they used in the show and how they changed things up between the two.  If you are a fan of the show or just into comics this compendium is well worth checking out.  It is a comic book that is more adult then most.  Which is a good thing.  There is violence and sex.  However that doesn’t get in the way of an awesome story.  When I was getting towards the end it turned into a real page tuner.  Now have to start reading compendium two seen what happens next.

Red_Nose_DayAny fan of Game of Thrones  needs to check out this video > here or below.  It is the funniest thing I have seen in a while.  Should give a little back ground.  The video was part of NBC’s Red Nose Day.  Which aired on May 21, 2015.  It was telethon to raise money for children living in poverty.  The event first started off in the U.K. as Comic Relief in the late 80’s.  They would use comedy to raise money.  The video has Coldplay turning Game of Thrones in to a musical.  It features the band as well as a bunch of cast members prepping the songs.  It has Liam Neeson doing the voice over.  It is pure gold.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt

The_Witcher_3.jpgAs I am typing this post (May 21, 2015) have but about five hours into The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.  My first impression is the game looks great.  Then felt a bit overwhelmed.  Not with the open world.  It was with all the things in the menus.  You can so so much with in them it hard to take all in at once.  But after a while understand it more.  There is a small problem I have with the menus is a lot of the text is way to small.  However have read that there are working on a patch that should fix that.  There are all so a few small quirks.  Sometimes things will get out of sync.  When moving from action gameplay into a cut scene.  The actions will play out then freeze then the audio with have to catch up.  It’s not that big of a deal.  But think a big game would like that would have that fixed before shipping.  Think this will be fixed at some point.  Over all the game is pretty sweet.  Lots an lots to look at and do.

The Walking Dead Compendium 3

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2015 by getbent57

The_Walking_Dead_Compendium_3.jpgBack in January (2015) learned that the third compendium for The Walking Dead comic books would be out in October 2015.  Well on May 19, 2015 they officially announced the full date.  Which will be October 13, 2015.  Once the listing is on will be adding to my wish list.  On a side note just about finished reading the first compendium.  At first found it a bit hard to get into the characters.  That is because the TV show is so much different.  After reading more have grown to like how they differ.

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2015 by getbent57

DC\'s Legends of TomorrowThere has been a rumour going around of awhile that there would be another spinoff for Arrow.   There is all ready  The Flash.  Which is really good by the way.  This shows are very popular so it turns out the rumour is true.  The show will be called DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.  It is set in the same world as the other two shows.  Which is awesome in my book.  There will be some crossover characters.  The show is set to air mid season next year.  So my guess is in January when the other two shows take their winter break.  There is a trailer > here or below.  It’s not your regularly trailer more of proof of concept.  Have to say it does look pretty sweet.  I will be watching for sure.  The more the better in my book.

RIDEThe demo and full game of RIDE have been out for awhile in other markets.  The demo is now out in North America and the full game is out June 23, 2015.  Have been waiting to try this game ever since I seen a few videos.  Looks like a very sweet motorcycle game.  So gave the demo a try.  There are very few good motorcycle games and this one is no different.  Other than the motorcycles and the riders gear looking amazing.  The is is not good.  Well the one track you can play is very nice looking.  That’s all I liked about it.  Mind you it is better than that terrible Motorcycle Club game.

In the demo you have one track and three different motorcycles to choose from.  Like I said it all looks great.  The load times are too long even after you pick the bike it load.  Pick the track it loads.  Then you have to confirmer each chose again.  Followed by more loading.  The biggest problem is the game is to ridged.  It’s very old school.  Here the track.  Ride were we want you to.  Go to close to the sides and you crash.  You race on a two lane road.  With a fence one one side and rocks/mountain on the other.  There is no room to go off the track.  So you crash.  Go into a corner to fast and try to stop.  Ended up crashing.  This type of gameplay is very outdate and un-fun.  Was very disappointed.  Will not be buying this game.
