The time to pick sides is here. I had said previously this series reminds me of the Justice Lords arc in the Justice League cartoon, but it’s starting to remind me of Marvel’s Civil War arc as well. It is also reminding me that heroes aren’t like they were when I was a kid. Back then, heroes weren’t really questioned, they truly were godlike. If they did something, it must be for our own good. Injustice is showing us that isn’t always the case. This is a talk heavy issue. How did it go? Continue reading
It’s a bit late, but your weekly shot of gaming is here! Blame the excitement for the next Xbox reveal for the tardiness of this week’s episode(we did). This week, we talk about the awesome hilarity that is Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, Puzzle and Dragons, Xcom, the EA and Disney partnership, the just announced Wolfenstein : The New Order, the latest gaming news, and much, much more! It’s late but it’s good!
I’m sure the title gives a lot away on this review. The reason it is easy to write this right now while I’m at home…is because the game is currently down for maintenance. Yes, it’s that addictive to me. It’s a very popular game, and I can describe it like this: combine Pokemon, Puzzle Quest, and the recent trend of “freemium” games. That is Puzzle and Dragons, from Gung Ho Online Entertainment. Let me get into why this game has taken away so many hours of my life in this review. Continue reading
The aftermath. In comics, the aftermath is as important, sometimes more so, than the actual event leading to it. This is the case because it is so easy to mess this up. Someone very important has been lost, and now we get to see how everyone reacts. As this important story continues, we are given a view most of us would have if we lived in this universe: from the bottom up. Continue reading
Free Comic Book day took place this past Saturday (also Star Wars day) and from what I saw, its safe to say that comics are making a huge comeback. Partially due to the abundance of comic and graphic novel based movies and partially due to “geek culture” becoming more mainstream (for better or worse). But needless to say, its a good time to be a comic publisher.
That being said IDW is doing pretty damn well. In addition to being the 4th largest American comics publlisher (alongside Marvel, DC and Dark Horse respectively) they are also the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund’s newest Corporate Member. Continue reading
Many of my friends and foes know that watching movies is one of the few pleasures I enjoy. The advancement of High Definition and now the upcoming 4k and beyond technologies just make the experience that much richer, more lively. The drawbacks of such wonders in technology is a little thing called DRM that makes it difficult for us to enjoy on multiple devices. Blu-Ray is no exception. For most they simply pop the disc into a standard player connected to their TV, but what about us who build Home Theater PC (HTPC) or want to watch them on the road? For that we need a solid software player along with the right hardware and with that long winded introduction; I give you my review PowerDVD Ultra 13 from Cyberlink.
Ghosts? Yeah, it seems we’re are about to get hype about ghosts. Starcraft: Ghosts? Nah…I don’t think that ever worked. We talk about the recent Call of Duty: Ghosts teaser trailer, Xcom: Enemy Unknown, the next Xbox, Iron Man 3, Tekken Card Tournament, the latest gaming news, our lives, and much much more. Yes, that much.
Yes, it is a single issue review. I figured since now we are caught up, we should review the issues as they are released. The fight in Arkham has started, and as we saw in the end of issue 15, Robin is in quite a bind. How does this battle progress, and can it stay interesting as we go further into the story? Let’s find out.
I’m a bit confused. I thought that this series would end right before the game came out, to make it an easy segway for those who wanted the game on release to get the full story experience. Apparently I was wrong, as this last week we got issue 15, and it’s still going to continue. That being said, things are continuing to get personal, as Superman is becoming more of a dictator than a hero, albeit a benevolent one(for the most part).
