XField Paintball 3

Often when I’m given a code for a video game to review I begin by researching the title before I download and play anything, especially if it is something I’ve never heard of.

XField Paintball 3 was a bit of a mouthful for sure and I had to pause and wonder if I had ever played a paintball video game before that wasn’t that one mode in Goldeneye 007, but pulling up the website I saw something that looked quite sleek and had a trailer featuring music that got me really pumped to shoot at people and probably be eliminated a lot.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review: Web of Memories

I’ve been a huge Spider-Man fan since I was young, from the comics, cartoons, and toys, I was hooked on the Web-Head and wanted more of his adventures, so the movies are always a true delight for me. Yes, I know that Spider-Man 2 is great, that first one is truly memorable for me even if it is cheesy, and The Amazing Spider-Man 2 really did try, but the rest are usually seen as some of the worst comic book films have to offer. I’m honestly one more Spider-Man 3 argument away from going full emo Parker myself though. Even the bad ones captured my attention. I went into each of these films with a certain level of excitement, fueled by nostalgia and by the countless pages I had read of a hero that will always be one of my favorites—even post-One More Day—but I tried so hard not to get my hopes up for this new one. Then his role in Captain America: Civil Warhappened and some successful trailers made my hop rise. I was stoked to see a new breath potentially given to the Wall-Crawler and ready for one more great adventure.

Retro Review: Crash Bandicoot: Warped

After I spent way too much time researching what a bandicoot actually was, and since I did play the first one as a kid as well as a bit of Crash Team Racing in college, I figured it best to pick something else. So, without comparing it too much to the other games, it’s time to review the third installment of this weird series from Naughty Dog—Crash Bandicoot: Warped.

Five Reasons the X Division Makes Impact Worth Watching

With its new ownership, Impact Wrestling has placed a renewed emphasis on the X Division. Originally conceived as TNA’s equivalent to WCW’s show-stealing cruiserweights, but without a weight limit, the X Division has provided Impact with many highlights throughout its history, even as the promotion often let it languish. With the new regime’s increased focus, though, it’s as good a time as any to talk up one of the company’s shining spots and underline a few solid reasons why this group of risk-takers is truly worth being checked out by all fans new and old.

Retro Replay: Gubble

I have played this game for several hours and done plenty of research, but I’m still not entirely sure what it means or why the disc exists in my hands. This is usually where I would make a joke about “the things I do for my readers,” but I honestly was less scarred after visiting the title and left more confused by it. So, this is my best take on the PS1 piece of tragically brilliant art that is, Gubble.

Wonder Woman: The Hero WB Needed

I knew it would happen eventually. I would walk out of a DC movie without feeling the wrinkles on my face forming their own new creases as I tried to think about how it could have been salvaged. Since the travesty of Green Lantern though, this is the best thing Warner Brothers have been able to produce, and I feel like it really should not have taken this long. I was so worried that the character had been forced into Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice without care and would be dead on arrival, but she was one of the better parts there and I’m glad to say that upswing continued. Now taking the spotlight, Wonder Woman has made a lot of waves at the box office and could rise to be the company’s crown jewel of a hero for this generation.

Mortal Kombat and Liu Kang’s Dead Brother

I keep forgetting about Liu Kang’s dead brother.

It is literally the first scene of the movie after that awesome intro; a pretty brutal scene of his death and a threat about the fate of our hero before what some would call a bit of ugly CGI.

Referring to Liu Kang as the hero of Mortal Kombat has always felt a bit wrong, because he isn’t the most classically minded champion of good, but at a closer look, he does fit into Joseph Campbell’s script of how the proposed journey should go. I love this movie, but he’s by far not one of my favorite characters and I have to understand when people say they find him a bit boring. The reason he’s in the tournament is to avenge his brother, who, from everything we hear, was much better at this whole, “being the chosen one” thing than Liu, except for that dying part.
