Mad Max: Fury Road trailer

A trailer was released at San Diego Comic-Con for the long awaited next chapter in George Miller’s Mad Max saga. Take a look below (trailer courtesy of MOVIES Coming Soon).

Max is back, this time being played by Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises), once again fighting gangs of motorized maniacs in a post apocalyptic desert world. Max is joined in his struggles by Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a woman who wants to return to the home of her childhood. George Miller returns as director, and from the looks of things, this may be as good as The Road Warrior.

Mad Max: Fury Road is set for release on May 15, 2015.

Destiny Beta- Final impressions and some questions for the full game

As the Destiny Beta comes to a close, it’s left a few impressions with me I’d like to share, as well as a few questions I hope will be addressed in the full game. I spent close to twenty hours or so with the game, and tried to hit all of the modes. I tackled the five story missions on Earth, and was lucky enough to get to play the one on the Moon (which was only open for two hours on Saturday, July 26). I participated in Crucible matches, including the special Iron Banner events, getting to see maps on Earth (The Rusted Lands), on the Moon (Dead Sectors), and one on Venus (Shores of Time). I did the Strike mission against Sepiks Prime, and explored the Cosmodrome and the areas surrounding it in Old Russia...

New releases for the week of Monday, July 28, 2014

This last week of July isn’t overly big with new releases, but it does have a few of note. The Last of Us Remastered releases on the PS4, so those who didn’t have a PS3 can see what everyone was raving about, as Naughty Dog’s version of a post apocalyptic America is well worth your time. Rogue Legacy makes the leap from the PC to Sony’s platforms for those wanting a dungeon crawler fix, and there’s a new LEGO game for the handhelds. On the home video front, Darren Aronofsky’s (Black Swan, The Fountain) biblical epic Noah debuts, as does the Cameron Diaz comedy The Other Woman. Those who remember the delightfully bizarre David Lynch series Twin Peaks can dive in all over again with the release of Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery...

Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze – Where “Going Bananas” is Encouraged

Tropical Freeze was my first Donkey Kong Country game  (I played Donkey Kong Land 3 on Game Boy Advance), though I’m quite familiar with the character through Smash Bros. and Mario Party, as well as the arcade original, which actually starred Cranky Kong as the villain, the original DK. Well, technically the villain was Jumpman, aka Mario, as the manual explains he abused DK, and DK took his girlfriend and smashed barrels around his house. Eventually his descendant became great friends with Mario and gang, and regularly races karts and plays soccer against them. This is the DK that stars in this game. I’m aware, however, that this is the first game to star Cranky Kong as a playable character, as he originally was just a shopkeep, though that role is filled by Funky Kong for this game...
