First thoughts: I have been excited for this movie ever since the first teaser dropped and this trailer just fuels my excitement. Some of the shots in this trailer are just drop dead gorgeous! Justice League seems to be a great mix between action and humor; something that previous DCEU movies had trouble with (Ezra Miller is hilarious as the Flash). I’m also pumped to see Ben Affleck as Batman again; he was one of the highlights of Batman v Superman. But what do you guys think? Let me know in the comments!
First thoughts: THIS LOOKS AMAZING (but so do most of the DC trailers so I’m going to slow down my own hype train). The action looks to be very solid and there’s some humor in it to lighten up the mood. What do you guys think? Let me know in the comments!
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!
First thoughts: I’m super excited for both films! I always thought that Gal Gadot was going to be a great Wonder Woman and the trailer (and Batman vs Superman) shows that I was right. About the Justice League: I really want to see how they handle all the different members of the Justice League. My biggest concern is that they don’t give all the characters enough screentime/story development. Both of the trailers however are looking very good and they did (for me at least) what a good trailer should do; make you want to see the movie. What do you guys think about these trailers? Let me know in the comments!
First thoughts: YESSSSSS! I loved the first Injustice game (I still play it from time to time) so I’m definitely going to buy this one it its release. They don’t need to change much but I really hope that use the graphics engine from Mortal Kombat X because that would look amazing. From the trailer it seems that every character has a number of new ‘skins’ (see the quote below for more info on that) and that we get to play as Supergirl! I’m pretty excited for this game but how do you guys feel about it? Let me know in the comments!
Playstation blog said this about the ‘skins’:
The Gear System uses RPG-like mechanics to reward you with loot drops every time you play the game. With each loot drop, you will earn character-specific gear to outfit and power up your roster – changing not only the look of each character, but your fight strategy and your personal approach to every match. As you gear up your characters, you’re building a roster of DC Super Heroes and Super-Villains that reflects your choices, and your preferences, which can be vastly different than your opponents. A few play sessions in, you can expect your Aquaman to look and play different than anyone else’s Aquaman you may come across.
They’ve also released the first gameplay trailer and it looks pretty good:
Last Sunday I was browsing Amazon and I saw that they were having a blu-ray sale. You could pick out 2 blu-ray for 10 pounds! I searched through the selection of movies and I picked out these two!
Justice League: Throne of Atlantis + Batman vs Robin (blu-ray)
I’ve seen both films fairly recently and I thought they were pretty good so it was a no-brainer for me to pick them up. The sale is still going on Amazon so if you want to check it out: http://goo.gl/aFNZGE
What did you guys buy this week? Let me know in the comments!
