There is a very big update out now for the game No Man’s Sky called the Atlas Rises Update.   I bought this game day one back in August (2016).  While there was a lot of negative things being said about the game.  I enjoyed the time I put into it.  While I haven’t played this this game since November (2016).  I might just have to get back into it.  This new update adds all kinds of new and awesome things.  Some of the stuff that stands out to me are, 30 hours of story, guild missions and terrain manipulation.  There is a whole lot to list.  But you can read it for yourself > here or you can watch the video below.

Batman_vs_Two-FaceLast August (2016) we first leaned that there was an animated movie coming out based of the late 1960’s Batman TV show, called Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders.  Which would star Adam West, Burt Ward and Julie Newmar.  It was released on Blu-ray/DVD on November 1, 2016.  Really enjoyed this movie.  After was wondering if the would ever make another.  Turns out they have.  It is called Batman vs Two-Face.  Two-Face will be voiced by William Shatner.  Wasn’t to sure how well that would work out.  But was nicely surprised when I watched the trailer > here or below.  It is set to be out October 17, 2017.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , on August 14, 2017 by getbent57

Just a reminder that the Blu-ray/DVD set for The Walking Dead season seven.  Will be out August 22, 2017.  Own all the other seasons so will be getting a copy of this as well.  From what I have been reading.  We will get to hear Negan swear.  In the comic all he does is swear.  Of course they can’t do that for TV reasons.  However now it’s on Blu-ray they can get away with it.  The set will all so have all kinds of featurettes, commentaries, deleted and alternate scenes.

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on August 13, 2017 by getbent57

Back in April (2017) first learned about the GPD X D GamePad.   It is a Android base table put into a clam shell game case.  Looks something like a Nintendo 3DS.  The main focus is to emulated games.  Think it is a pretty awesome device.  Wanted to get one.  Until I seen the price they were asking for in Canadian money, around $300.00.  So decided to wait on it.   A few days ago while watching some videos on YouTube.  Seen that John Riggs of John Riggs: RIGG’d Games channel was showing one off.   You can see that video > here.  He had a link to were the one he got it, > here (Gear Best.com).  So click on the link to see.  Think it would be on US money.  Was surprised to see it the site all so in Canadian money.  But it gets better they were having a flash sale on this device for $181.11.  I could not pass that deal up.  Had to have it.   Should be in my hands by the end of the month.

Assassin’s Creed Origins: 18 Minutes Of Gameplay

Posted in Just something to say, Videos with tags , , , , , on August 12, 2017 by getbent57

There is a new gameplay video for Assassin’s Creed Origins.  IGN posted it on August 7, 2017.  The video shows off 18 minutes of a side mission about half way though the game.  In the video the game is running of an Xbox One X in 4K.  Must say it looks very pretty.  Am sure it will still look really nice running on original PS4 or Xbox One.  Did not watch the full video just scrubbed though because don’t want to much of the game spoiled.  Plan on buying this day one.  Big fan of this series.  If you are interested it check it out.  You can do so > here or below.  The game is set to be out October 27, 2017.

Oceanhorn: Monster Of Uncharted Seas Demo

Oceanhorn_Monster_Of_Uncharted_SeasOn the PlayStation store they are/were (depending when you are reading this) a sale of digital only games.  One of this is Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas.   Have been looking at this one for awhile now.  The sales price was $10.00.  Which is a good price for game this size.  Was still on the fences about buying it.  Then seen that there was a demo.  So gave that a go.

First of the game looks great and the controls are good as well.  It plays something like a Zelda game.  In the demo it is let you play the very beginning.  Much like every game it walks you though on the mechanics.  Then it ends when you find a key to your boat to head off the island.  After playing the demo decided not to buy the full game.  While there is nothing wrong with any of it.  Just didn’t pull me in.
