Secrets of Days of Future Past

dft

(Spoiler Alert) It has been decades since Ive read even part of the sentinel saga. The story arc was picked up for several characters in a number of comics. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Days_of_Future_Past ) A detailed breakdown of this project and the future sequel can be found at this link.(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X-Men:_Days_of_Future_Past ) This review is for those that have seen the film and want to go deeper . Wolverine is a doubting Thomas but the layers and textures of the past build around him like an ocean filling a cavernous void of doubt. I like the time loop start and endpoint using the same song by Roberta Flack… First time ever I saw your Face. Loving the dead serious aspect of this movie I thought I might explore what you may not know instead of reviewing what you do know. Thanks to Screen Rant we have a break down of why the rogue scene was cut from the film and little of what the author felt about why it had to be done. http://screenrant.com/x-men-days-future-past-rogue-scenes-explained/ Here is the captain of the ship as it should be …. not a group (like Godzilla 2014). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Kinberg. Once again staring down the loaded weapon to troll the train wreck of inconsistencies in the films I must first praise the attempt and the awe of the super hero on the big screen. Keep the faith true believer and look at the original story as well as the cross overs in the late eighties. There was a time when even the voice of a child could stop the printing press to review the story before it hit the stands breaking the web of the interactive universe.. Once again Screen Rant gets the award for showing the cracks in the new illusion.

Final post credit scene explained by writer— credit IGN —- ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4xGs0L0UPTs ) At the risk of beating a dead horse look for Chris Claremont ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chris_Claremont ) as one of the senators near the end. There you go… less of a review and more of a gem hunt into the rare bits and pieces..      Official Site   http://www.x-menmovies.com/ One last bit that will throw you down the rabbit hole but you will love every minute of it.  A site built to impress with eye candy and story arcs from the comics. http://nomoremutants.com/

The Latest Street Fighter Adaptations

As we hope for a next-gen console game, here’s a look at some of the latest from Capcom’s iconic fighting franchise.

Among long-lasting gaming franchises, the classic Street Fighter series from Capcom has been one of the most popular and enduring. It dates back to the late ’80s and has stretched across multiple versions and collaborative efforts, Street Fighter still captures the attention and adoration of gamers all over the world. That’s exactly why so many have been waiting for word on a new adaptation for the next-gen consoles.

As of yet, there is no concrete information regarding a new Street Fighter game for Xbox One and PS4. There are some conflicting reports regarding the potential adaptation of Ultra Street Fighter IV to the new consoles, and this would certainly be exciting for fans of the franchise. The release of Ultra Street Fighter IV has already generated a lot of attention because of the game’s inclusion of a new “edition select mode” that will allow gamers to choose not just which fighter to control, but which version of that fighter from previous Street Fighter games to use. In a sense, this should make the new game (set to be available for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC) one of the most extensive and inclusive games in the franchise’s history.

However, for those looking for modern Street Fighter games to play in place of some older editions that are phasing out or becoming obsolete, there are actually plenty of options that are readily accessible. In particular, the mobile app market is worth exploring, as Capcom has actually released a number of fairly impressive Street Fighter games over the past few years.

Street Fighter X Tekken Gauntlet, last updated in late 2012, is the best option for those looking for free games. Also, it actually brings a pretty complete experience to mobile devices, though some will always lament the lack of a real gaming controller for combat games. But the very best app Street Fighter experience out there is the Street Fighter IV game updated just earlier this year. This title almost feels like a brand-new console game in the palm of your hand. It’s not free, but great arcade graphics, impressive controls for a touch game, and most of all the depth of the character and combat options make it a very legitimate addition to Capcom’s extensive franchise.

Meanwhile, for those who just want a bit of everyday connection to the iconic characters of Street Fighter, the casino gaming industry has gotten its hands on the franchise as well. There’s an immensely enjoyable Street Fighter II slot-based arcade game, for instance. It is available on several sites across the Internet, but Betfair’s Arcade site offers more casual players the opportunity to see how the game works through the demo video before throwing down actual cash. The game is essentially a play on an ordinary slot machine, but it is made enjoyable for Street Fighter fans by pitting you against M. Bison and allowing you to choose a character to represent you.

Finally, this spring brings the release of Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist, a web/television series that will focus on Ryu and Ken as they delve into their own pasts. It’s not exactly a new game, but the series—developed by Joey Ansah and Christian Howard—could very well be one of the franchise’s most exciting developments in recent years.

For now, though, that’s about it. Hopefully, Ultra Street Fighter IV will make its way to the next-gen consoles to bring us the biggest and best Street Fighter gaming experience yet. But until that day comes, don’t worry because the franchise is alive and well, even with recent adaptations!

Godzilla 2014

Godzilla 2014

Be warned this review is on fire with spoilers. “The screenplay is credited to Max Borenstein (Who?) but includes contributions from David Callaham (Doom ,Expendables), David S. Goyer (Christopher Nolons Batman Trilogy,Man of Steel), Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3), and Frank Darabont. (Nightmare on Elm Street 3 Dream Warriors) ” Quote from wikpedia Godzilla 2014 inserted credited titles from respective biographies . There are some great cooks in the kitchen but I would have handed it all to Goyer for obvious reasons. Two creatures wake up after a long sleep and the undeniable impression is that Godzilla is on his way to hunt them down. One quote explains it all . ” There was a time when the earth was more radioactive and ruled by these creatures.” At no point during this review will I shoot this film down for the chance to be clever. The effort on every level makes me proud but I believe with an honest push to clean it up and re-shoot some scenes it would have gone from good to great. Cranston cast as the heartbroken confused father can do no wrong. He is a mechanic with any script. The kid from Kickass however (Aaron Perry Johnson) cast as his bomb disposal tech son , phones in his role like his mind is somewhere else. Only in the end does he appear to have his sea legs on the project. Here you can understand why Kubrick (2001) could take any actor after multiple takes and whip them into serious mode with the threat of “we can do this all day!!!” Ken Watanabe — ( Dr. Ishiro Serizawa ) plays his role as a scientist aware of every secret twist behind the scenes. He is good but could have been given more of a role in the script. The Creatures and Godzilla re-define the giant monster battle dance. The buildings go into various stages of burn and decay all the way to the horizon. The Monsters are a gift to the new generation of sci fi / Fantasy film fans. You may think I am over the top for adding this link to the making of Godzilla vs King Ghidorah https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JEjphnKacU but it’s important to see the before and after computer enhancement age of monster films. I salute a serious treatment for any generation and for that I love this movie. It was not for lack of talent but for lack of watching scenes that could have been tuned up to make a better picture.

Elite Dangerous Development Diary

It’s been a while sense I added an Elite Dangerous update. Well the alpha is over and the game is on to beta. The premium beta is starting and then in the second beta I will finally be able to play. Here is the video. If you never played a space game this should be your first. If you like the genre you have to pick this one up IMHO.

Alien Isolation Creating the Cast Video

New development video in for the game Alien Isolation. Even if the game is rubbish it’s cool to see the tech used to make these games. However I am going to go out on a limb and say the game looks interesting as well.
