Army Of The Dead Quick Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 31, 2021 by getbent57

Army_Of_The_Dead.jpgWatched Army Of The Dead on the weekend.  Was very much looking forward to seeing this.  After watching was a bit underwhelmed.  Sure there is a lots of good things about it.  The action was top notch, all the actors did an awesome job and the funny bits were great.  The story has an interesting take on the zombies.  Which was nice.  It was just parts of the story and plot points we all have seen so many times takes away from it.  Over all I did like the movie and it’s well worth checking out.  Just can’t see myself watching it again.

Far_Cry_6Have some more awesome gaming news to share.  Yesterday (May 28, 2021) Ubisoft share some gameplay and features for Far Cry 6.  I am a huge fan of this series.  So will be getting a copy day one.  In the video > here or below we get a real good look at what the world is like and as well as what new about this game.  It looks beautiful.  Think the map will be really big with lots to explore.  They have add some funny weapons as well.  The CD launcher cracked me up.  At the end of the video the revealed when the game will be out, October 7, 2021.  Think the best part is it will be on PS4 as well.  That is what version I will be getting.

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 28, 2021 by getbent57

PS_State_Of_Play.jpgYesterday was May 27, 2021.  Sony put out a new State of Play on the game Horizon Forbidden West.  You can give that video a watch > here or below.  It runs about 19 minutes.  I must say the game looks amazing running on the PlayStation 5.  In my last post talking about this, I never got around to trying the first game.  Even though I own a copy.  Thinking now would be a good time to give it a go.

Petula_Clark_DowntownTime again for musical throwback Thursday.  Sticking with the 60’s theme again this week.  The pick is Downtown by Petula Clark.  There are other versions by other singers but think this one is the best.  This is off her 1965 album of the same name, Downtown.  You can give it a watch/listen > here or below. Classic never age.

No Man’s Sky Expeditions Beachhead

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 26, 2021 by getbent57

No_Mans_Sky.jpgFinished up the second Expeditions for No Man’s Sky, called Beachhead.  This one was much shorter than the first and a bit easier as well.  Think that is why it only lasted two weeks.  I did have fun playing for the most part.  Mostly complied to see what the big prize/unlock at the end would be.  Turns out it was a big surprise.  It was a cross over event with Mass Effect Legendary Edition.  You unlock the Normandy ship from that game.  Which can be used a a frigate.  Do think this was a cool idea.  However was hoping for something cooler.  May be the next expeditions will have something more useful.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on May 23, 2021 by getbent57

The_Walking_Dead.jpgWe going to be seeing season eleven of The Walking Dead much soon than I thought we would.  There was been little videos popping up on their Facebook page with saying the show is in production.  Then at the end, says season eleven will start August 22, 2021.  I was guessing many be some time later in the fall or winter.  In other news, we have know for awhile this will be the last season and will have 24 episodes.  Have read theses will be broken into three, eight episode chunks.  Am very much looking forward to see how they are going to wrap all the stories up.

Jupiter’s Legacy Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , , on May 22, 2021 by getbent57

Jupiters_Legacy.jpgHave watched the first series of Jupiter’s Legacy.  Very much like what I seen.  A different take on a superhero world while still having elements we all know.  The show jumps between to times lines.  One in the 30’s and the other in now times.  Love the look of the 30’s.  Every thing is very detailed and sharp looking.  They even changed the aspect ratio when switching between the time lines.  As for the story it’s self.  While interesting, there are spots were it keeps repeating or becomes generic.  That being said there are some good twists as well.  Figured out one of the big twists before the last episode.  The show ends with a cliff-hanger.  So now we have to wait for a second series.  Which I think will be better because they would have worked out more of the kinks.   Over all enjoyed the show and recommend checking it out.
