    Video Games: A Far Cry From E3

    Still playing through God of War... soooooo much side content, its unbelievable. Not only that, but its a genuine joy to actually explore, there's always something unique/rewarding around the corner. So far its amazing, unless RDR2 really surprises this will probably end up being my GOTY.

    This God of War game has seemed to exceeded a lot of expectations, can't wait till Friday. If SMS have actually made me like Kratos by the end, they truly are indulging in witchcraft.

    Video Games- Mess Effect: Andromeda

    Yeah RE7 was actually my first in the series and now I am kind of working backwards, it was pretty good- feels like a first person, less obtuse and simpler version of the the first game (REmake specifically). The first half was really good though I will admit the second wasn't as strong. Luckily the game is classic Resident Evil length so it never feels like it drags. As for the controls of RE4, I'l admit it took me an hour to get use to them as I never really had experience with tank controls as someone who only started gaming last gen. But once I got used to them, I really liked them- they worked well for the game they were designed for and perfectly complemented the mechanics. Like everything in the game, the controls felt like they were part of one coherent vision in RE4.

    [Spoilers] Rant and Rave with Impunity

    till kind of bummed they seemingly combined Euron and Victarion, I much preferred Warlock Pirate Euron from the books.

    Just finished Resident Evil 4 for the first time... What have I been missing all my life. This game deserves all the insane praise it has been receiving over the years, it is one of the best games of all time.

    ...Which remind me I need to finish this damn game, I stopped playing and I think I am the halfway point. Level design was amazing, though the story was not as strong as say Bioshock, which it clearly takes inspiration from.

    Wolfenstein: the New Order really is brilliant huh? Had been sitting on my steam library for a while until the trailer for the sequel prompted me to play it. Its like if Tarantino wrote and directed a videogame. The over the top B-movie violence combined with very human characters in an absurd situation featuring villains that have licence to be as cruel and evil as possible without justification, all of it really comes together well.

    Where does Danny land?

    I saw a rumor that we get more Dorne (based on scouting locations) and Dany landing there is the only way I could see that region being relevant again.

    Do you believe Preston Jacobs' explanation for dragon riding?

    Eh, even if y'all don't agree with the man Preston Jacobs has to be the most interesting thing to happen to the fandom in a long while- at least opposed to the same boring theories we hear time and time again his outlandish theories bring something new and fresh even if they may seem implausible.
  11. Dunk and Egg would be perfect, the show has a perchance for buddy-cop dramas anyways, so having a whole story that combines a smaller scale with a more whimsical, idealistic portrayal of Westeros could prove both an enjoyable show and a nice change of pace for the franchise.
  12. I am legitimately exited for the new season. Never felt this way about a Walking Dead season but I finally caught up on the show via Netflix (lost interest in S6 after the fake-out) and I am pumped. It does help I only have to wait a week to answer the "who did Negan kill" question.
  13. I thought it was just as apparent in the normal cut to be honest when he says that speech with "you on top of everybody else". But the whole Africa scene is fleshed out more and becomes its own sub-plot. Makes his plan seem more coherent.
  14. So I just watched the Batman v. Superman ultimate edition- I honestly really enjoyed the ultimate cut, and this is coming from someone who thought the theatrical cut was trash- as in i would give the TC a 4/10 and the UC a 7/10. I really appreciated the dark deconstruction of my childhood heroes, and I think that's the main thing people disliked- that Superman was an alien viewed with fear whereas Batman was darker and more punishing. But really, I think its a fresh way to represent the characters. A real life Superman would be seen with suspicion and in this universe awe are introduced not to A superman who has already attained that "paragon of good" moniker but someone who has to earn it. With batman, we see someone who has been fighting crime so long that they have let their primal humanity overcome idealized principles. Yes, some stuff is still bad- the entire third act for example, but other elements I felt were judged too harshly. Luthor for example- I though Eisenberg was a bit over the top, but overall this is the best Luthor we have seen in a live action movie. This is the guy that has the existential crisis resulting from Superman's existence and is threatened by eh idea of a perceived deity, whereas the other Luthor's have pretty much been crooked real estate brokers. This is the mad genius/evil sociopath we have wanted, and while it was not perfect, I am looking forward to more on this take of the character. It is, I think, while still a flawed movie, one that tries something new and takes superheroes more seriously and portrays them in a more mature manner than the quip-obsessed Marvel movies.
