The Last Kingdom Book

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , on January 31, 2018 by getbent57

The_Last_Kingdom_BookHave started to read the book The Last Kingdom.  This is the first book in a series.  Which I just found out has ten books so far.  Got this one and the second book, The Pale Horseman, in a box set.  Knew nothing about these books.  According to Wikipedia this series is all so known as The Saxon Stories.  These are written by Bernard Cornwell.  All so found out the first four were turned into a TV show.   Which is now on Netflix called The Last Kingdom.

So far an really enjoying this book.  From what I read so far.  It tells the story of a young boy who heads into battle with his father a lord of castle.  His father is killed and he is kidnapped by the raiders, Danes.  They are something like Vikings.  At first I wasn’t to sure if I would like this book because some of the names I have know idea how to say them. Making it hard to follow.  Turns out it is easy to read and really interesting.  When I get though these two books will have to seek out the others.

Gotham Season Four

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 30, 2018 by getbent57

Season four of Gotham has been off the air since early December (2017).   Ever since then there hasn’t been any news on then on when the second half will start.  A few days back on the Gotham Facebook they announced that the show will be back March 1, 2018.  This seems like a very long wait.  That being said this season has been the strongest it has ever been.  All the story arcs has flowed some much better.  So thinking this second half will been even better with the the time they have in-between the first and second half.

We are a few months away from the movie Ready Player One being out.  This is based off the very awesome book sharing the same name, Ready Player One.  Have read this book and loved it.  Recommend it very one.  Back in December (2017) the put out a trailer for the movie.  If you missed that you can see it > here.   After watching it a few times.  I think they are going to be doing an great job at turning the book into a movie.  Last week on the Warner Bros. Pictures YouTube channel they put out a new video called, See The Future.  It has Steven Spielberg and Ernest Cline talking about the movie.  It is pretty cool.  You can give it a watch > here or below.  The hype is building.  Can’t wait to see watch this movie.  It is out March 30, 2018.

Suicide_Squad_Hell_To_PayJust before a new DC Universe Animated movie comes out a new one in announced.  Batman: Gotham By Gaslight is out on digital from January 23, 2018.  Then on Blu-ray February 6.  A few days back then announced the next movie.  It is called Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay.  While this might not be the first time we seen the squad in one of these movie.  This one stands because the last time the movie, Batman: Assault on Arkham was set in the Batman Arkham games world.  Another thing that makes this one standout it will be out very soon.  Digital on March 27, 2018 then on disc April 10 (may be?).  You can see the trailer > here or below.

Yesterday, January 26, 2018 Ubisoft did a livestream gameplay for Far Cry 5.  I missed it because I was working.  However they do have it archived on their YouTube channel.  Am so hyped to play this game.  However wasn’t too sure if I would watch this or not because I don’t want to have anything spoiled.  Then said why not.  This game is going to be huge so they wouldn’t give too much way.  It was to be out in February but was delayed to March 27, 2018.  Plan to get this day one.  I am very much looking forward to seeing how well co-op will work.  You can see the livestream > here or below.

Justice_League_Blu-RayThe Justice League movie was out in theatres back in November (2017).  Never got to seen then.  So have been waiting to hear when it would be out on disc.  Have read that the movie will be out in digital formats February 13, 2018.  then a month later (March 13, 2018) on disc formats, 4K, 3D, Blu-ray and DVD.  There has been a lot of negative talk around this movie.  But I don’t listen to that.  I judge movies once I watch them myself.  Then decided if its good or not.

Yesterday (Jan 22, 2018) the latest PlayStation Store flash sale ended.  Now they have a new sale going on.  It called PS Essentials Sale.  They had one of these last year as well.  Took a quick look at the PS4 games.  They all so have deals on the other two platforms (PS3, Vita) as well.  Lot of these games have been on sale before.  Not sure if they are a better prices this time.  Speaking of prices some are only a few dollars off the regular prices.  So look very closely before you buy.  So of the games might be cheap less were for the disc version.  This sale ends January 30, 2018.

NESmakerCame across a cool program on KickStarter night now (Jan 2018).  It is called NESMaker.  This let you make original NES (Nintendo) game with out any coding.  There are a bunch of programs out there that you make games with out knowing any code.   However this one stands out not just because it makes NES games.  It will all so let you flash the game rom to a brand new reusable cartridge.  This will let you play the game on a real NES or any of the clones.  Or you could just run the rom on PC though an emulator.  This all sounds pretty cool.  You can find out more by clicking the link above or going to The New 8-bit site.
