Batman_Return_To_ArkhamIf you never played the first two Batman Arkham video games and now have a new console.  You are in luck.  Because these game are getting a remastered versions.  Batman : Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City are getting an upgrade.  Then repackaged as Batman: Return to Arkham.  The games will have all the extras and DLC that were out for them the first time around.  These are amazing games.  Well worth your time and money.  You can see the trailer > here or below at how good it looks.  Will be out July 26, 2016 for PS4 and Xbox One.

Raspberry Pi 3

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , on May 23, 2016 by getbent57

Raspberry_PiFor a few years now have read and seen things about Raspberry Pi.  If you never heard of this.  Basically it is a very small computer that can fit in your palm of you hand.  It has USB ports and the like.  Was designed to be used for teaching computer science and programing on the cheap.  It cost around $35.  People have taking these and have made all kinds of cool and crazy things.

Found out the other day they have a new version out called The Raspberry Pi 3.  This new version is faster of course.  The big updates it has build in Bluetooth and Wi-fi.  The reason I am taking about his cool device is.  Found out people have been turning them in the game emulation machine.  There is a website called RetroPie that shows how it is done.  Has all kinds of help, videos and documents.   It all looks pretty sweet.

Am now very interested in getting one.  You can just by the device it’s self.  Found a place that sells them in Canadian money > here for $46.13.   However over at Amazon.ca they have a kit  > here that comes with the Pi, a case, power adapter, 32 GB MicroSD card, heat sinks and a HDMI cable for $100.00.  Which if you were to try and piece out all these items on your own might end of costing you more.

Thinking about getting one of these.  It all looks pretty cool.  Watched the video on the RetroPie and it seems like I would be able to do that.  I even have a PS3 controller and a USB keyboard.  Going to think on it.  Have a birthday coming up.  These might be the gift to myself.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season Three Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 22, 2016 by getbent57

Agents_of_SHIELD.jpgA lot of TV shows are all most finished their seasons the month.  The first one (that I follow) is Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.LD.   Their third season ended with a two hour episode on May 17, 2016.  This season has been much better than the first two.  Mostly that is because they didn’t have to tie into the movies as much.  All so there was more focus.  They were not all over the place with all kinds of side stories.

This season felt like it was two in one.  Which is a good thing because it keeps things interesting.  The first half tied up events from season two.  All so setting things up for the second half.  The second half has been the best of all the episodes for the whole series.  Sure there wasn’t a lot of fight scenes.  Which I am fine with because the ones they did have were great.  The story was at its best.  All the characters had development and good storylines.  Now looking forward to see that they do in season four.

e3.pngIt is less the a month to go before 2016 E3 (Electronic Entertainment Expo) takes place.  The dates this year are June 14 to the 16.  Think much like last year there will be conferences before the official start.  Have read that Bethesda will be having their own again this year.  There as all so be a few reports that there will be less game company’s this year.  Am guess they will most likely be doing their own press around the same time.  All ways look forward to seeing what awesome new games will be coming out.

Assassins_Creed_MovieIf you have every stopped by this blog you will know that I am a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed games.  For awhile now there has been a movie set in this game world in the works.  Which is titled Assassin’s Creed.  Am sure this will confuse some people who never heard of the games.  When they look up info about the movie.   A few days back the movie makers put out a trailer.  Which you can see > here or below.  Have to say it does look promising.  It main star is Michael Fassbender.  He is a great actor.  Which is another promising aspect.   It will be set in the same universe as the game.  The characters will be all new.   For a very long time game to movie adaptations haven’t been so great.  This might be the turning point.   The movie is out December 21, 2016.
