Well the rumors were true, Activision and Infinity Ward’s next title in the world’s most popular gaming franchise has scored the new title of “Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare” and will include whole sections set in space.

‘Infinite Warfare’ has players taking on the role of a captain of their own warship who must take command against a relentless enemy. The entire campaign – from boots-on-ground combat to piloting high speed space-fighters – is said to occur as a “near seamless experience” with few visible loading times. Continue reading

 

DC has done a solid job over the last few years with their direct to video animated features. Granted, there have been exceptions here and there and the stories just don’t work now and again, but Justice League vs. Teen Titans isn’t one of the exceptions. I know that others may disagree, but from my standpoint, it accomplished everything that it should.

It was early 1988, I was staying over at my friend Dan’s house for the night. Normally we would spend the entire night trying to rescue Princess Zelda, but this time was different. Dan and I had played D&D before but he wasn’t part of my regular group of D&D friends and we usually only played nintendo together. Dan and I were friends because our moms were friends and he went to a different school, so we really only hung out when our moms did. Continue reading

Guys, I seriously don’t even know what to say right now, so I’m just going to paste in some facts and some photos.

The Edge of Extinction is… well, on the edge of extinction. Some of the art early on in the first issue captured my interest, but as the story progressed it seemed as though less and less care was given to each new panel.

I’d hoped at least for an interesting space odyssey, but unfortunately I felt the story lacking as well. It was like reading a late night, sci-fi B movie in comic form. I didn’t feel for any of the characters, I didn’t worry for their well being, or hope for their safe return.

While it’s certainly possible that the art and story might redeem themselves in future issues, I can’t say I particularly care to know what happens at this point, having read up to issue three.

wp-1457799179227.jpgGrimgar of Fantasy and Ash is the latest in the recent crop of anime that address based in virtual worlds. In the last year or two, basically since the explosion of support that was Sword Art Online, we have been treated, or subjected, to at least one anime every season that drops the protagonists into a virtual world. The ways that they get there change, whether or not they are stuck there changes, the penalty for dying changes, but the setting remains consistently similar. The question then becomes, how do we determine whether or not the series is good and worth our time. In my opinion, it comes down to the nuances of character and storytelling.

The final novel in the Reckoners series brings us into a time of chaos and conflict for our primary protagonist. Despite being the man who kills Epics, David Charleston is in a position that he never planned for and never prepared for. He has set himself his biggest target yet, fallen in love with an Epic, and lost his hero/mentor/father figure to the Epic power that he kept rigorously under control until David came along. Needless to say, aiming to bring down not just a superhuman, but the next closest thing to a god in the world that David inhabits qualifies as an appropriate task to wrap things up.
