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

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.

5 out of 5 GT (GT = Good Times)

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.
