Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Heroes in a half-shell

Turtle power!

Owh yes, this week it’s all about the mighty heroes in a half-shell (the song is stuck in your head now isn’t?). And we get a last minute visit from a cowboy!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan (PS3)

This game received some horrible reviews but because it was so cheap (€8) I decided to give it a try. It’s a standard brawler but that’s not a bad thing for me because I like those kinds of games. It does get repetitive after a short while so I only play 1 level at the time. For the price it isn’t a bad game if you want to play a TMNT game but I do see why it got bad reviews.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 movie pack ! (blu-ray)

This set contains both the TMNT films with Megan Fox. They aren’t the best films in the world but they are entertaining. The second one, for me, is better just because it has Beebop and Rocksteady.

Red Dead Revolver (PS4)

Red Dead Revolver was one of my favorite games on the old Xbox. When I saw it discounted on the PSN Store I decided to get it and see how good it is by today’s standards. So far I’ve played about 9 chapters and it’s not as good as I remembered it; the game has so many glitches that I didn’t notice (or can’t remember) when I played it on the Xbox. It still is a fun game but be aware; the game is a probably a lot better in your head than it is now (nostalgia goggles are a powerful weapon).

What’s a game that you loved when you were younger but that didn’t really pass the test of time? Let me know in the comments!

Wonder Woman: Origins Trailer!

My thoughts: This trailer was the weakest of the three (in my opinion) but it still did a pretty good job to hype me up for the movie. I really hope that Wonder Woman turns out to be a good (or even decent) movie so that DC can build on that for their future films. All the trailers so far gave me the feeling that this movie could be good but trailers can be deceiving so who knows. I’ll be doing a full review when the movie hits the theaters.

Gaming Montage Part 3: “Only Human”

This is my third gaming montage so far and it’s a ‘PC only’ edition! I know that most of the games in here are shooters but that’s just what I like to play! I hope you guys enjoy the video!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 70!

This week we get a visit from both Lego Batman and the Punisher!

Lego Batman: Joker Balloon Escape

I haven’t seen the Lego Batman movie (yet) but this Lego set was just too cool to not pick up. I might pick up more of the Lego Batman sets in the near future because they are freaking awesome!

The Punisher (Xbox)

The Punisher is an underrated action game based on The Punisher comics and the 2004 Punisher movie (very loosely based). The game is very violent (mostly because of the executions) and the story is pretty cool. It has a lot of resemblance with how we saw the Punisher in Daredevil; gritty and no-nonsense.

 

What’s your favorite superhero game of all time? Mine’s probably Arkham City but I also really enjoyed Spider-Man 2 and Marvel vs Capcom 2.

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 69!

In this week’s edition of ‘Weekly pick ups’ I go on a trip in Middle Earth and I revisit my childhood with some Lego!

Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor GOTY (PC)

I’ve played this game before on PS4 and I wasn’t a big fan of it. I felt like the game got very repetitive very quickly and that turned me away from it. I sold it and moved on but I kept seeing footage of it on YouTube and it just looked a lot better than I imagined it so I decided to give it a second chance. I went for the PC version simply because it was cheaper than the PS4 one. Hopefully I’ll enjoy it much more this time but only time will tell.

Lego Dimensions starter pack and Aquaman fun pack (PS3)

What’s there to say? Lego sets are pretty cool and making it into a game is a very smart idea. I didn’t jump on the Skylanders/Disney Infinty hype train because I didn’t want to collect another set of figurines. That isn’t a problem with Lego Dimensions because I already collect Lego stuff (mostly superhero/movie related sets). I went for the PS3 version because of the huge price difference (the starter pack on PS3 was €35; the one for PS4 was €75) and it gives me a reason to dust of my PS3.

What’s your favorite Lord of the Rings game? Mine’s definitely the original Battle for Middle Earth; some sweet RTS action set in Middle Earth? YES! Let me know what your favorite game is in the comments below!

Weekly Pick-Ups: Week 68!

This week wasn’t a big week for pickups; I just bought one PSN game. The following weeks might be a lot better (if some things come back in stock) so be prepared for that!

Trials of the Blood Dragon (PS4)

I’m a big fan of the Trials series so when I saw this on sale for €7 I just bought it. The level design is great but I’m not a huge fan of the changes they made in this game. I like the grappling hook but I really hate the levels on foot. They feel out of place and aren’t as good as the ones with a vehicle. But overall it’s still a fun game with some gorgeous levels and for this price it’s a must buy for any Trials fan.

What’s your favorite Ubisoft game? Let me know in the comments!

Awesome Rocket League montage by Mokula!

I played a lot of Rocket League in the past and most of that was 2 vs 2 with a friend of mine. I wasn’t too good but he was pretty amazing at the game. He now made a very nice montage of some of his best goals/saves/aerials that I wanted to share with you guys! He just started his Youtube channel and he told me that he’s going to upload more Rocket League footage in the future! So go show him some love!
