On Ant-Man

So today was a bit of an adventure. Earlier this week I sent an email out to my friends trying to pull together people to go see a movie with. One of the things I’ve decided I need to do to not stay curled up in a depression ball on weekends is to try to go out and do stuff, or at least just go out. Due to conflicting schedules we decided to post-pone for a couple of weeks. However I still planned to go see a movie, and pulled in one of my other friends that I also work with and we wound up going to see Ant-Man. The adventure part was that initially I wanted to go to an early showing of “The Man From U.N.C.L.E” but my friend didn’t want to get out before the afternoon started.

So, this game came out in 2013 so I’m a bit behind in getting around to it. I only got it at Christmas and just now playing it. (Bad segway here, I typed this last). For the last week I’ve been playing Lego Marvel Superheroes on the PS4, and I have to say I am thoroughly surprised at the amount of content in it.

The story mode is what most people might consider brief, I’m not sure how long I spent but according to HowLongToBeat.com the average time for the main story is around 11.5 hours. I’ve played “serious” titles that were over faster (ie Murdered Soul Suspect). To do everything that the game has, collectibles and … Read more…

On Some Thoughts On The Comic Industry

So this is a post I’ve been meaning to write, but just haven’t had the time to actually sit down and type something up. Recently I purchased one of the Humble Comic Bundles that rotate selections every week or two. The one I picked up had around $300 worth of comics that you basically pay what you want for and the money goes to charity. What’s really cool here is that the comics that you are buying are all DRM free. Now that wouldn’t stop me from buying them anyways. If I had to put some code in to one of the apps (comixology, marvel, dc, image, etc..) I would be fine doing that. This specific bundle was for Image comics and contained several volume ones for some of their titles. Some I didn’t recognize, but the big draw was that for paying over a certain price you would get … Read more…
