Dirty_Vegas_Days_Go_ByTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  This weeks song is  Days Go By from Dirty Vegas.  The song is off their 2001 album called Dirty Vegas.  This is one of my all time favourites.  I can still remember hearing it for the first time.  Every time I play GTA 5 and this song comes on I stop and listen.  Not sure how long the real music video will stay up on YouTube.  Which you can see > here or below.  It not the best but it’s better some of them on YouTube.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Patch 1.22

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on June 29, 2016 by getbent57

The_Witcher_3.jpgThe last day of May (2016) there was a new patch out for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, 1.20.  Which I thought it would be the last one out because they just put out the very last bit of DLC for the game.  Well the other day, June 20, 2016 they put out 1.22 patch.  You can read the patch notes > here.  It is a bit over three pages log.  Did a quick read though.  The only thing I came across that I can see that I hard a problem with was, when body parts would get suspended in mid-air after an enemy exploded.

A while back started to play from the begin again.  My goal is to see if I can finish it before No Man’s Sky comes out.  So far played over 40 hours.  Had fun the whole time.  This is an awesome game.

Game Of Thrones: Season Six Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , on June 28, 2016 by getbent57

Game_Of_Thrones.jpgSadly season six of Game of Thrones ended this past Sunday (June 26, 2016).  Say this every time but each season is better than the last.  So many little and big things happened that changes the way the stories unfold.  Leaves you guesting what will happen next or did that just happen moments.  The build up to the last two episodes was great.  These last two are the best TV I have ever seen.

The whole season as amazing.  However the last two are what makes this show the best.  In episode nine has the by far the best big battle scene that puts every big budget movie to shame.  Then episode ten changes everything.  It is the most beautifully shot.  The whole open scenes which has the most awesome musical score as you on the edge of your seat.   Can’t wait to see the fallout and what crazy new moments they will have next season.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows Review

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

Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtles_2.jpgIt is a return to form with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out Of The Shadows.  This movie was so much of an improvement over the first one.  It felt like a real Turtles movie.  The biggest changes over the first was they made it a lot more fun.  Having lots of characters from their universe made all the difference.  At first wasn’t a big fan of who the made the Turtles looked.   However it does grown on you.  They do look better this time around.  What I liked most about the movie was how they worked in little hints and bits from the past movies and cartoon shows.

If you are a Ninja Turtles fan like myself it is a must watch.  They got it right this time around.  Over all any one can enjoy this movie.  The story moves fast but you are not left confused.   Sure there are lots of movie tropes we all have seen way too much.  On the plus side this was very fun and entertaining.  The very best thing about it is, The Turtles acted they way they should.  Had a smile on my face all the way though.
