Just like everyone else here I'm a twenty something nerd who enjoys video games. It wasn't really until I was about fourteen that I really started getting into games and other mediums. As a kid my folks never bought me video games, let me watch movies, or enjoy tv and "most" music so I lived a terribly dull nonexistence. For years I had been skimming along by sneaking over to friends houses and the occasional visit to my uncles who had an original Famicom. Thankfully that all changed and I've been overdosing on everything I can get my hands on since.
Sadly I'm not rich so as much as I love video games I can only play so many so often. However movies and tv happen to be a little cheaper. I believe that all current mediums in our culture cross reference each other whether it be good or bad. Games influence movies, movies influence tv, tv acknowledges that video games exist every once and a while.
Honestly I really enjoy this community and just want to contribute what I can.
This week I do have to say that I had a lot of fun on this episode. One of the goals of this show is to capture some of the insane conversations that we have. And so far we have succeeded on some levels but this week we went all out.
The big news for us in gaming was of course the announcement of Marvel vs. Capcom 3. The second game in the series means a lot to me since it was my first introduction to the Marvel Universe. And even though I have never been that great at fighting games I continually play them, living out the fantasies of watching these characters battle to the death. Hopefully the roster is large and varied. I honestly believe that if Frank West doesn't show up I will be greatly disappointed. West's disappearance from the Dead Rising franchise is also why I don't care that much for the next Dead Rising and I'm curious why people don't care. In other gaming news we do touch on Ubisofts cracked DRM.
As always there is plenty of film news to go around. The new Alien films will be in 3d which makes me sad. The Car is a great post Jaws film that everyone should check out for some cheesy fun. But lastly the most grim news has come upon us. The Bond franchise, at least for now, seems to have gone defunct. MGM can't pay it's bills so we may never get to see Daniel Craig play Bond again. Of course this has sparked my nostalgia for Bond so I will be renewing my marathon with reviews of each film in sequential order starting with Dr. No. More to come on that.
Last on the agenda is our reviews of The Losers. I will say that we are much kinder to the film that almost everyone else out there. And honestly I don't understand where the hate is coming from. I didn't think it was spectacular but why all the hate?
And we are on iTunes so please rate us or leave a review.
