Posted in Just something to say, Pictures with tags , , , , , , , , , , on April 28, 2017 by getbent57

Say this every time.  But have been looking forward to the first motorcycle ride of the year for very long time.  Well, technically it was yesterday (April 27, 2017).  Had the day off.  Then there was the weather.  A beautiful day out.  Was around 20°C.  Which it a lot warm them most year.  No, the temperature will not stay.  But hope it doesn’t get too cold. Want to start taking it to work.  The motorcycle worked great.  Nothing felt our of place or wrong.  It will be eleven years old this May.  Have had next to no trouble with it.  Do have to get a inspection.  So when they do that it find out if there is any problems.  Looking forward to another season of riding.

Shania_Twain_-_Up!Once again it is musical throwback Thursday.  The song this week is I’m Gonna Getcha Good! by Shania Twain.  It is not very often I pick a country song for throwback Thursday.  Which she is a very famous for that type of music.  On her 2002 album Up!.  While most of the song have a country sound it mixes is some pop as well.  Think it holds up well.  You can give it a watch/listen > here or below.

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands Challenges

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 26, 2017 by getbent57

Now that challenges are a part of Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.  I had to give it a try.  Ubisoft has done this type of thing in many of their games.  This one is a bit different because.  They are going to be running it in over four different season.  Each of those will be six weeks long.  Every week there will be different challenges to complete.  Then these challenges are broken into three categories.  There which can be in solo/co-op.  One in a Task Forces.  The last ones is for everyone playing the game.   When each one is complete.   It unlocks a reward.

Gave this a go to see how well it works.  Didn’t try the Task Force one because I am not a part of one.  The community one didn’t take very long to unlock because there is a whole of people playing the game right now.  The main goal was to finish the three challenges in solo mode.  They were pretty straight forward to do.  One using yout drone to mark some many things in a certain province.   When that’s done you can move onto the next.  Which has you marking a certain number Unidad soldiers with your binoculars from at lest 100m away.   The last ones you as you manually deactivating two drone jammers in the toughest province.  Did all that.  The reward it unlocks is a copper paint job for your weapons.  Have to say it looks very nice.  Not sure what the second week will bring.  But will be checking it out.

Batman & Bill

Batman_&_BillLike many people all around the world.  Am a huge Batman fan.  There is a very interesting new documentary.  It is called Batman & Bill.  The story is about Bill Finger.  If you are like me you might not know who he is.  He is one of the creators of Batman, some of his villains as well as the world he lived in.  All so like a lot of people.  We all ways been told and seen that it was Bob Kane what created Batman.  This documentary is exclusive to and made by HULU.  You can see the trailer > here or below.  It does look really good.  Want to see it but don’t think HULU is in Canada.   If it is don’t want to buy into another streaming services.   If you do have HULU.  The doc will be out on May 6, 2017.

GPD XD GamePad

GPD_XD_GamePadDiscovered a very cool device the other day.  If you are into playing old video via emulation.  But all ways wanted to take it on on the go.  Well you are in luck.  This device is called GPD X D GamePad.  It kind of looks like a Nintendo 3DS.  What it is, is a Android base table put into a clam shell game case.  The main focus is to emulated games.  Running Android so you could all so do other stuff as well.  Have to say it is pretty cool look thing.  The only downside is the price.  From what I have looked up it can from from $260.00 to $300.00 Canadian money.   Which is around the price of a tablet goes for.  Will not be be buying on any time soon.  But if I came into some extra money would think about buying one.

A few post back talked about the new free and paid DLC coming to Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands.  There was a big patch/update out on April 12, 2017.  Which was around 6GBs.  This fix a lot of things.  You can read the full patch notes > here.  The part I was looking forward to post is the free challenges.  That night went online to play with my brother.  But we couldn’t figure out how it worked.  Well that was because I read the info wrong.  The patch added the challenges but they don’t go live until April 18, 2017.  Am very interested to see how it works as well as what the rewards might be.   Will back with another update when I get to try it out.

Have made a few post talking about wanting to put LaunchBox on my old computer.  That computer runs Window Vista.  So thought it would make the prefect setup to to have old games running it.  Have read and see lots of great things about LanuchBox.  Am pretty sure it is an awesome program.  While installing.  It has to install the newest .Net Framework.   Which is fine but that doesn’t support Vista.  So am out of lucking with that.  I know as of April (2017) Microsoft is done with Vista.  But still thought it will still be able to run programs.  Think I will look into Retroarch next.

Teen Titans: The Judas Contract Blu-ray Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2017 by getbent57

As you may know if you have stopped by this blog every now again.  I am a big fan of the DC Universe Animated movies.  The newest one out is , Teen Titans: The Judas Contract.  This is part of the continuing storyline.  Which are under the banner DC Animated Movie Universe.  Really do like that they are doing this.  This way they can develop the characters over the long term.   Something they can’t do the the standalone movies.

This story is based of the the storyline from the 80’s Teen Titans comic book.  While weaving in elements from the the past few movies.  Never read those comics so was going in fresh.  Of all the movies in this world, this is the best one yet.  The other have been ok but nothing that really made them stand out.  Sure you can see some of the point twists coming a mile way.  Think mostly that is because there has been some many movies and TV shows that took them from comic books.

Liked this one a lot.  OF course it looks great and well acted.  The best part is see that all the characters have grown.  Not staying the same makes you more invested on the story.  Highly recommend giving this a watch.  You don’t have to see the other ones that came before.  It wouldn’t hurt but not that necessary.  All there is some good extras on the  Blu-ray disc.
