2018 TGIOKDI Year In Review

This is a first time thing for me, I’ve never done a year in review on my own personal site before, but I figured with all the books, games, and movies that I’ve been posting about, I might as well do one. In 2018 I have: Read 37 books Finished 26 games Watched 308 movies I’m counting the comic books that I listed on the site, they were large enough and of enough importance to make a post, so they’re getting counted.  Obviously a few of the movies were watched more than once (mad max: fury road was watched like...

Orwell: Keeping an Eye On You on Steam

Big Brother has arrived – and it’s you. Investigate the lives of citizens to find those responsible for a series of terror attacks. Information from the internet, personal communications and private files are all accessible to you. But, be warned, the information you supply will have consequences. A fun “game” with a mysterious storyline that ends abruptly and with little warning and no way to back up the storyline to see exactly what you clicked on. I loved the interface and the story itself was entertaining. I was able to get to the end of the game in only about...

Star Trek: Fleet Command

A mobile game that uses the way overused “timers” method of gaming, in which the players have multiple countdown timers that they manage and get time reduction tokens by completing mundane tasks. As you might imagine, you can purchase an in game currency to in turn purchase those same reduction tokens. It’s all very boring, very repetitive and a complete waste of time. Here’s an ingame screenshot, in it there’s a “winner” countdown with 4 counters inside, a lootbox count down with 3 counters inside, then on the left is a wrench that has the two upgrade countdowns. Here’s the...

Wakefield

Successful suburbanite commuter Howard Wakefield (Cranston) has taken a perverse detour from family life: He vanishes without a trace. Hidden in the attic of his garage, surviving by scavenging at night, he secretly observes the lives of his wife (Jennifer Garner) and children. But soon, he realizes that he has not left his family … he has left himself. Also starring Jason O’ Mara and Beverly D’Angelo, Wakefield is “one to definitely seek out”, (The Hollywood News). This is a one man show for Bryan Cranston, starring Jennifer Gardner’s sideboob. Much like other movies that are primarily one person (Buried...

Brain Challenge

Memory and math and visual tracking games. I enjoyed playing this in ye olden days of the xbox 360, so I figured i’d give it a go on the xbox one. It did not age well at all.

The Incredible Hulk 4k

Academy Award nominee Edward Norton stars as scientist Bruce Banner, a man who has been living in shadows, scouring the planet for an antidote to the unbridled force of rage within him: the Hulk. But when the military masterminds who dream of exploiting his powers force him back to civilization, he finds himself coming face to face with his most formidable foe: the Abomination -– a nightmarish beast of pure aggression whose powers match the Hulk’s own! A perfect example of a terrible, horrible, no good, lack luster, incompetently and badly done 4k transfer. All the colors are muted, all...

Pacific Rim 4k

I’ve heard that this movie is pretty great in 4k and I found it for $9 at Target, so I jumped on it as quickly as possible, which it turns out was not as easy as I had assumed. We have several Targets here in town, and while the Target.com website suggested that the closest store had a couple copies, they did not, in fact, have any. They checked their internal inventory system and saw that there were two copies on the far far side of town, so I called that store and asked them to pull one for me,...

The Interview

A TV host and producer land an interview with Kim Jong-un, but plans change when the CIA recruits them to ‘take him out.’ I think this was actually one of the first movies I ever purchased digitally at full price, and now thanks to the miracle of Movies Anywhere, I was able to watch it again! It’s a funny movie.

Aegis wing

I can’t even find this game on amazon, but here’s a wikipedia link: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aegis_Wing This was the first game where I struggled to get four people together to play it, and that was like ten years ago. Gaming has been a lonely thing for a while now.
