Jotun: Valhalla Edition

Jotun is a hand-drawn action-exploration game set in Norse mythology.In Jotun, you play Thora, a Viking warrior who died an inglorious death and must prove herself to the Gods to enter Valhalla. Impress the Gods! Jotun is currently free on both Steam and GOG, it’s not my cup of tea, but maybe someone else might be interested in it? In particular, there’s no tutorial, so good luck figuring out what buttons do what. Additionally the “map” they give you in next to worthless, it doesn’t show where you are or where anything of note is. If you like exploration games,...

The Walking Dead Season Two Video Game

Your decisions and actions will change the story around you Episodic series based on Robert Kirkman’s award-winning comic books. You don’t have to play Season One or 400 Days to enjoy Season Two, however we recommend that you do in order to get the most from the story. Season One of The Walking Dead won over 90 Game of the Year Awards. Your decisions and actions will change the story around you Walking Dead Season Two improves on season one, but only marginally. The frustrating pace and odd choices for story decisions are still frustrating, so while I’ll admit that...

I Saw The Light

I SAW THE LIGHT chronicles the legendary country western singer Hank Williams’ meteoric rise to fame and its ultimately tragic effect on his life. I Saw The Light has the elements of a great film, perfect casting, good story elements and music that was absolutely amazing, but unfortunately the editing turned this into a confusing mess with little punch to it. Perhaps following along too closely with the movie’s namesake biography, there was no story here other than to show interesting moments in Hank Williams life, to show that he abused alcohol and drugs and spent entirely way too much...

Whataburger No Longer Has The Monterey Melt?!?

Went to a local what-a-burger today and was told they no longer carry the Monterey Melt, which was my go-to for when I was needing a near death experience and/or was drunk. This, so soon after Wendy’s discontinued their spicy chicken nuggets has me questioning why I even bother eating out.

Star Trek: The Animated Series

The further adventures of Captain James T. Kirk and the crew of the USS Enterprise, as they explore the galaxy and defend the United Federation of Planets. This was difficult to get through, VERY difficult.  The plots were the best part of these episodes, but it was almost painful to get past the stilted and reused animations, along with the stilted and extremely over reused music and sound effects.  I really think every episode used the same exact sound effects and same exact music with no changes at all. Additionally it was clear they didn’t have the budget for VO,...

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Peter tries to fall back into his normal daily routine – distracted by thoughts of proving himself to be more than just your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man – but when the Vulture (Michael Keaton) emerges as a new villain,...

Skyfall

Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost. I was happy to see that Bond was able to find more bulletproof construction equipment in the opening scene of Skyfall, I was worried that this movie was going to be too realistic for my tastes. I joke, but it’s weird to see a series that’s trying its very hardest to be modern and realistic and then have bullets bouncing off of crane windows or back plating....

Quantum Of Solace

Picking up an hour after the end of CASINO ROYALE, Bond’s journey leads him into conflict with the murky organisation called Quantum who are bidding to take control of Bolivia’s water supply. The opening song of this film is just horrible. Doesn’t mention the title of the movie like 99% of other Bond films and truly sounds like someone was strangling a cat during the few minutes it was playing. Quantum of Solace is a loud and boring film that’s fallen into the horrible trend of a thousand cuts for every action scene. Towards the beginning of the film, there’s...

Eat Stop Eat

Lose weight by fasting The authors have taken the above basic premise and stretched it to be a 78 page book. There’s some references that I didn’t bother to look up, I was only reading this to see what exactly their arguments were for fasting, which took about half of the book to get to that answer. There’s good points made here, but I’m not sure I’d be happy without eating for a full 24 hour period, several time a week as they suggest in the final quarter of the book.

It had once saved the woman’s life by massacring her attackers in a particularly bloody manner. It believed the man to be a burnt-out case. But not even its machine...
