    Im getting Turok Vibes with this game. It looks like it could be fun for a while but the pace seems to be so frantic. So fast. I think they should have gone for a more dino crisis multiplayer vibe. Where its more about survival. That would have been cool. And it would be much easier for me to imagine some growth in that area.

  2. I must admit the new dune trailer is looking pretty sweet. I can't wait to see this. Since I saw Netflix's "The King" I'me pretty hyped to see how Timothée Chalamet does in this movie. If you haven't seen 'The King' go check it out. Its a slow burn but between him and Robert Pattinson I found it to be really enjoyable.

    I remember seeing the original Dune, it had its quirks but I really enjoyed the story as it is a true epic.  And of course the main character had some pretty cool abilities. I've never read book or at least I don't remember reading all of it. Im glad to see they are doing this remake though. I feel like with today's technology they can really do it justice.

    It's also funny to me how they make Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron in star wars) the father figure as he was portrayed to be much younger in the star wars movies.

  3. Hey guys I must admit. It is strange, it is odd and it is a whole lot of fun! It has become apparent to me that Ridley Scott really loves his androids. Perhaps in the same way Christopher Nolan loves messing with our perception of time. At first I didn't care for my lack of knowledge regarding the past events but after each episode, I found that the more I watched the less it bothered me. The way they've set things up is nobody knows who to trust. Everybody is deceiving the other in some way. The humans seem to be a new age sci fi version of the Templars. Androids are weird and mysterious. And each time the show goes back in time to reveal something new,  it adds another interesting layer to one of the characters. I'm honestly not sure who to root for in this show! I feel like I'm on everybody's side and no one's side, all at the same time. I watched the first 3 episodes back to back although I only intended to watch the first one.😅 Im glad HBO was kind enough to release the first 3 all at once so now the stage is set up! I will say the show does feel rather small. I tend to like epics. But that's not what they were going for in this series(At least not yet). If you haven't seen it yet, go give it it a try.

    Well it looks like there will be no next gen news at TGS. That is a little disappointing, seeing as we are inching closer and closer to release and we still don't even have a price yet. I really feel like Microsoft has some more big surprises up their sleeves but we'll see. The one xbox game that really caught my ere was avowed. I can't wait to play that game.

  5. I must admit I really, really like this move. Im biased, Im from Dallas. And Mark Cuban never should have let Nash go. He should have kept him and Dirk together. Something that he now openly admits. Steve Nash was an absolute wizard with the ball and I think he'll be good for the Nets. He has a real mind for the game and it seems like his teammates always respected him.

  6. At this point, new trailers are only spoiling the surprises for me because I'm definitely going to by buying  "No time to die" as soon as it comes out. It looks great, more of the same stuff that we all love. It seems like poor old James is always getting betrayed. But I cant wait to see how this one ties back in with all the previous Daniel Craig bond movies.

  7. It's interesting, every time we turn around there is some thing going on with Batman. Almost like someone really doesn't want to let Ben Affleck pass the torch on to Robert Pattinson. I hope he makes a fast recovery and production can continue. I officially became a Robert Pattinson fan after I saw the King on Netflix. I was completely shocked as I didnt know Robert Pattinson had that kind of range. I felt like he stole every single little scene he was in.

  8. Anybody else ready for the mandalorian. You know as much as I enjoyed The Mandalorian season 1. I must say, it felt extremely small. And for me Star wars was always felt big and epic. I'll be interested to see what they do with the next season will it be more of the same or have a lot more scope? More baby yoda is always good! 😁 We'll know more October 30th 2020.

  9. Wow Re Zero was crazy good today! I expected some new reveals but they really took it to another level. All of the witches were true to form and seemed to embody their title pretty well. I found it a bit annoying that Subaru broke basically all of the rules that he was given beforehand. Im interested to see what happens between him and Echidna. 

    If you haven't checked out this series yet. Please go to crunchyroll immediately, subscribe, and then proceed to watch the directors cut version of season 1. Come back here and give me a hug 😅

    A friend of mine sent me this video today. Thought I'd share it. The prices sound within the realm of possibility. The release date sounds legit too. It could very well be true. But one has to wonder. If this is the case why wait so long to release the information. Are sony and microsoft planning to undercut the other by a significant margin? I seriously doubt it. As I plan to get both the price want affect my purchase decision, as long as they keep it at $600 or less for the console I'm good.

     

  11. I have to give crunchyroll a lot of credit. This series came out of nowhere for me. And I've really enjoyed the action scenes and even the few small moments of character development. It even has a nice little mystery going for it. Episode 2 is what hooked me though. But this episode was excellent too. It's always nice to see the supporting characters thrive, and there were a few nice surprises here.

  12. I enjoy every single episode of this anime. The mystery is awesome. I never know what to expect next so I've been doing good avoiding the manga. I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out though!

    Last week's episode was solid, not my favorite of the season but still a really strong showing. The ending as always was a nice little surprise and it sets things up nicely for the next episode. It seems like we'll be getting some more big reveals soon.

    I hope the team releases a director's cut version just like the first season. Some of the animation on that was really really good.

  13. This is the first time in a long time where Chris Paul is seemingly fully healthy.  I've always said that if Chris Paul was 6'6' he'd already be considered one of the greatest players of all time. I would think this victory would be the sweetest in his career. Can you imagine being traded and then defying all odds and making the playoffs with your new team and then actually going to a game 7 and beating the team that traded you? Game 7 is going to be crazy!

    This is probably good for the gaming industry. I have a friend that is a huge Sony fan and he was actually considering buying an Xbox just so he could play batman lol. Although in reality it could be more posturing on AT&T's part to secure a better deal. If Microsoft were able to pull it off I think it would be extremely valuable to have Batman on their platform.
