PlayStation4.jpgThere is a new system update in the works for the PlayStation 4.  This 4.00 update will be in public beta soon.  Then some time after that everyone will get it.  The big take ways from this update is they are refreshing the UI (User Interface), adding organization tools,  updating the quick menu and changing how the user profiles look.  Of course there is more to it than that.  You can read about it > here.  There are all so some pictures on there how everything will look.  Thinking some time this fall the update will be out for everyone.

Model Kits

ModelKit.jpgBack in August of 2011 made a post talking about model kits.  How I would like to get back into putting them together.  But never did.  When I was a kid made many of this.  Sure they didn’t turn out so great.  Mostly because I didn’t know what I was doing.  All so didn’t have the tools.  Back then was well, you could find all kinds of kits to buy.  There was a whole section in the toy aisle.  There was even a hobby store in the mall.  Those days a gone.  However the internet to the rescue.  Found some nice kits and tools on my favourite online store, Amazon.ca, for some reasonable prices.  So strongly thinking about ordering some stuff.

Hermes_House_Band_Country_RoadsTime once more for musical throwback Thursday.  This weeks song is cover version/remake of John Denver’s 1971’s Take Me Home, Country Road.  Which is done by Hermes House Band.  Hermes House Band is a band based out of the Netherlands. Who have been around for a long time doing covers and remixes of popular songs.  After discovering this version they did which you can see > here or below.  Watch some of their videos.  Have to say they do a really good job at keeping the song as you may know them and giving it their own spin.

No Man’s Sky

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 15, 2016 by getbent57

No_Mans_Sky.jpgAs I am typing this post(August 11, 2016) have had No Man’s Sky for two days.   Have got more used to the game mechanics and how the inventory systems work.  The inventory for you suit and ship work on slots.  So the more slots you have the more stuff you can carry.  These slots can all so be used to hold tech upgrades.  So this makes the inventory management interesting at times.   Of courses you can get more if you find upgrades to your suit or buy a new ship.  Did find a broken down ship.  but it only had one extra slot so left it here.  On the space stations you can trade with NPC’s.  All so buy their ships.  Seen a really nice one.  Sadly it was over a million Units (money) to buy.  Will have to get some more Units and dream a little smaller for a new ship upgrade.

So far have spent most of my time on one planet exploring and mining.  It is very easy to get distracted.  Found so many camps, outposts and the like around pretty much every corner.  It is well worth the time checking these out.  Found all kinds of useful things.  Like upgrades, money, health and stuff to sell.

Having a blast so far paying this game.  Have only seen one tiny part of what this game has to offer.  Can’t wait to see what else there is.

Luke_CageHave to say Marvel and Netflix have been doing an amazing jobs with their shows.  Now the next new on is on the way,  Which is called Luke Cage.  Don’t know much about this character.  Other than his is really tough. Well, after watching the trailer, which you can see > here or below.  He is more than just tough.  He is more like an X-Men.   The show will be up on Netflix September 30, 2016.  It looks really good.  Another one on my must watch list.

Batman: The Killing Joke Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 12, 2016 by getbent57

Batman_The_Killing_Joke.jpgJust finished watching Batman: The Killing Joke.  This is the newest out DC Universe Animated movie.  Which is based off the very famous 1988 graphic novel of the same name.  Have read that story years ago.  Forgot most of it so it was nice to relive in animation form.  The movie starts off differently than the novel.  Its starts with more backstory with Batgirl and her relationship with Batman.  That part of the story was very nice addition.  After that’s over, the story picks up for the graphic novel starts.  From there is it pretty much exactly as the novel.

As all ways the animation is top notch.  The voice acting was even better.  Because it has the two best actors very to play Batman and The Joker, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill.  The big take ways from this movie is the backstory of The Joker and the ending.  The way it ends is very different then you would think.  Had to go back and look at the novel to see if it ends the same way, it does.  Over all this is a great movie.  But not one of their best.  Still worth watching.
