Overwatch Animated Short “Honor and Glory”

So far I have been very impressed with the Overwatch animated shorts from Blizzard. They have been really well done and look like something we’d see from Pixar Studios. This week was Blizzcon and for those of us that are fans of their games we were treated to some awesome new content. Some of that new content happened to be another animated short based on the origin story of the rocket-hammer wielding knight, that goes by the name of Reinhardt. Once again Blizzard did not disappoint and definitely delivered an emotional and entertaining back story for one of their most popular characters. Personally I haven’t played much with Reinhardt but after this I might.

NEW The Last of Us Part II Trailer

The Last of Us was one of the best games to ever hit consoles and PC. It told an amazing yet terrifying story in a unique and immersive world. However when the game ended we were all left with many questions and could not wait for the second one to come out. Well that was all the back in 2013. Now here we are at the end of 2017 and we are inching ever closer to the release of The Last of Us Part 2. It’s been almost a year since we got our first glimpse of this game in a violent and emotional teaser trailer that was released back in December of last year. If you missed it or want to check it out again just click here. Today we get another violent look at the game and it makes me want to play it even more. 

NEW PS4 Spider-Man Trailer

I would have to say that one of the most anticipated games to have ever been announced for the PlayStation 4 has definitely got to be the up coming Spider-Man game. It was first mentioned all the way back at E3 2016 and we got our first look at some official game play at E3 2017. If you some how missed either of those announcements or just want to go back and check them out, then click here for the E3 2016 announcement and click here for the E3 2017 game play footage. Today Marvel and Sony gave us another taste of what is to come with an action packed new trailer. Once again this game is at the top of my list of “must haves” and is even making consider upgrading from my original PS4 to the new PS4 pro.

R.I.P. Xbox Kinect

Well it finally happened, the somewhat popular yet controversial Xbox Kinect Censor has officially been discontinued by Microsoft. According to Gamespot, Kinect creator Alex Kipman and Xbox Devices Marketing GM Matthew Lapsen shared the news in an interview with Fastcodesign. Microsoft has revealed that it has officially put an end to the manufacturing of the device but that the remaining Kinects still on store shelves will continue to be available for purchase. So if you’ve ever wanted a Kinect to go with your Xbox One or Xbox 360 now is the time to buy one. Personally I have never owned one and after Microsoft tried to shove it down our throats with the launch of the Xbox One, I never will.

Rick and Morty Old Spice Commercial

I was thinking about this and I sorta went back and forth about it in my mind. I feel Like Rick Sanchez is the type of guy that would totally sell out to a company to make some quick cash, but on the other hand he also seems like the type of guy who doesn’t place much value in money. Or at least not making it in the conventional sense. He doesn’t seem to care much about having money to do things on Earth so it seems sorta weird that he’d want to do an Old Spice commercial. Well despite how I feel about it (or any of us for that matter) a Rick and Morty Old Spice commercial is now a thing and it definitely does not take it’s self very seriously.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Official Trailer

Here we go Star Wars fans! We’ve been waiting anxiously to get another look at the latest Star Wars movie titled The Last Jedi. Just like Star Wars The Force Awakens, this trailer premiered during Monday night football. It was all the way back in April that we got our first look at The Last Jedi in the form of a teaser trailer. If you missed it or want to watch it again, then just click here to check it out. This time we get a much more sinister and mysterious looking trailer than the Force Awakens. I don’t want to say that the Dark Side has a big upper hand in this one, but it is definitely looking that way. Still, what else makes for a great story other than some serious conflict?

Awesome Stranger Things Video Game is FREE

The much anticipated release of the second season of Stranger Things is just around the corner.  The first season was so popular that it quickly became the most talked about series on Netflix. Part of what made the show so unique and popular was the call back to the 1980s that ran throughout the entire series. Keeping the retro theme going Netflix and game developer BonusXp has created an awesome looking Stranger Things mobile game that is FREE to play. The best part about Stranger Things The Game is that it was made with 8-bit graphics that definitely make you feel like you are playing a classic game straight from the 80s or early 90s.

Pacific Rim: Uprising Official Trailer

It was back in July when we got our first taste of the new Pacific Rim movie in a short teaser, but we didn’t really get to see any actual footage from the film. If you missed it, be sure to check it out by clicking here. Well here we are 4 years after the original movie was released and we finally get the first official trailer for Pacific Rim: Uprising. Once again the new Jaegers look awesome and the Kaiju look even more menacing than before. Also it appears that the humans are back to doing what they do best, which is of course fighting with each other. All in all this trailer is awesome and Pacific Rim 2 looks like it’s going to be even more intense and action packed than the first one.
