I Caved and Baught the Shovel Knight Amiibo


Snapshot_20160120

Shovel Knight was one of my favorite games from 2014 and i still play the “Plague of Shadows” DLC in my spare time (currently making my way through NG+ while on break at school). So yeah, share in my shame for contributing to Nintendo’s amiibo bollocks.

Nintendo Inroduces…LINK….As a Woman!


CTpozoYWoAQ8k87.jpg largeBack in 2014, when Nintendo showed off the first trailer for “Zelda Wii U” the one thing that everyone was asking was “is this link a girl?” Which made sense given the slightly more feminine look of the character.  While i do believe (though this isn’t certain at the time) that the heads of Nintendo did say the character in the video was Male, the have now given us an offical Female Link, named Linkle, who will be a playable character in Hyrule Warriors. Now the big question is, will the next main Zelda game have a female link, or even allow players to chose links gender, or will we be stuck playing the default male link again? I’m really interested to see where this goes, but it’s too soon to tell as of yet.

He Look, It’s Me…Again


Snapshot_20150730_2Okay, once again, sorry for my ugly face, but this is my second of 2 band shirts and i wanted to show it off. It’s for one of my favorite bands, My Dying Bride, English Death Doom Metal Pioneers. They’re great and you should check them out of you like Doom Metal.

Is it just me, or does this look more like a group of cos-players instead of an official picture? I mean honestly, this looks like a really good pic from comic con doesn’t it? All look…ok…..compered to the the outfits for Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman (though the look a hell of a lot better than that pic of the Joker that was recently released), but the quality of this picture has me even more worried about the film. If Warner Bros/DC didn’t find it worth the time and money to make this first group shot look like it was actually meant to promote a movie, then why should i want then why should i go see it?

Batman Arkham Knight Batwoman Reveal Poster and Impressions

My Thoughts:

I hate the look Rocksteady went with for Nightwing and Robin. Everything about them angers me to an unreasonable degree. Thankfully they decided to put in some actual work in creating this version of Batwoman. The only issue i have with this is that it’s a part of Arkham Knights Season Pass, and Season Passes are freaking stupid. But as far as the look goes, yeah, i can deal with this.

And just in case you haven;t seen the abominations They made of the other two, i’ll add them for your viewing displeasure. image18

Plague_Flyer

If you read my review then you already know that I FREAKING LOVE SHOVEL KNIGHT. A lot. Like, i’m still playing it. Well, if you’re like me then you’ll be happy to know that it has some upcoming DLC (or  new game, i’m not sure witch) based around the boss Plague Knight. Yacht Club Games will be showing the playable demo at PAX East this weekend, but they’ve released this poster on their website. I’m stoked and can;t wait to play it, and if you haven’t played the game yet GO DO IT!

Stuff I Missed: Jason Momoa’s Aquaman Costume for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

My Thoughts:

I’ve said thi before, but i still have little faith in Warner Bros. and their up coming DC movies. However, this pic does let me know one thing: they have a pretty great costume designer. And that’s really all i have to say about it. At lest someone working on the movie is semi-competent.
