It's Been Awhile...
This was me...
I've missed you all. I haven't blogged in awhile due to laziness, sickness, and me just plain not feeling like it.
I've had to suffer through tons of school work and lack of free time, I hardly get any sleep. Currently my town is being pelted by a big snowstorm, so, no school tomorrow, yay! So, let's get this started.
I got Fallout: New Vegas for Christmas, I was weary of it because of all the reviews complaining about the glitches and such. I'm glad I waited, because I haven't come across any problems, and it hasn't hindered my overall experience with the game. Overall, the story's solid, and as always, I still love exploring the wasteland, it's a great game.
I also got Medal of Honor for Christmas, it's a pretty good game. I played through the campaign once, the story wasn't too great and the multiplayer is decent, it's a game I play mainly just to pass time. It's not something to play all the time, but it was solid, if they make a sequel, the biggest thing they need to work on is the campaign, the story was pretty boring.
DC Universe: Online is a game that I've been wanting to play for awhile. I'm going to eventually buy it with a life time subscription on the PC, seeing as it is a good deal. Being a HUGE DC comics fan, I can't wait to get it, I'll probably have it within a few months.
With the release of the Mass Effect 3 teaser, I am now pumped! I'm playing through the first two games to enhance the excitement, and make sure that I get my Shepard story completely perfected. This is definitely going to be a day one, preordered, collector's edition buy for me! :D
I saw Tron: Legacy the weekend it came out, Jeff Bridges was great, the effects were awesome, and it was a great movie. I'm hoping for a sequel.
127 Hours looks like a great movie, I'm a big James Franco fan. I've yet to see it because my theater doesn't show limited release movies. So, I'm waiting for a DVD release.
I saw this movie a week ago when I rented it, I'll say that it was a little bit overhyped, but it was still a great movie. I've liked Jesse Eisenberg since Zombieland.
Green Hornet was a really good movie to kick off 2011. Seth and Jay were great in their portrayals of the characters, and the movie was hilarious.
I'm Super excited for this movie, I love JJ Abrams and aliens. I've been following the viral marketing campaign I.E. Rocket Poppeteers and Scariestthingieversaw.com. The movie is shrouded in mystery, and that's exactly what makes me want to see it. I had a nerdgasm at the sight of Super 8's Superbowl XLV tv spot. (Packers won by the way :D)
The Hangover II is definitely a movie I'm looking forward to this summer, I loved the first one, and it'll be nice to get another comedy dose of Zach Galifianakis, and Liam Neeson is making a cameo which'll be hilarious.
Green Lantern is hands-down one of my favorite superheroes. This is my most anticipated movie for 2011. And if it's successful, it's been said that DC will try and focus on the more unknown heroes i.e. Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow etc. :D
I'm looking forward to seeing both of these Marvel movies, it'll be exciting seeing the Avengers finally assemble on the big screen.
I'm looking forward to TF3, #2 may have been bad from a critical standpoint, but I still happened to enjoy it, and I hope this one turns out great.
This is shaping up to be a good movie, the trailer looked awesome and Jon Favreau is a great director. Plus, if you don't like Harrison Ford, Daniel Craig, Olivia Wilde, and Sam Rockwell, then you have no soul! :P
Not too much going on on the music front besides the fact that I found a great rapper on Youtube, his name is Hoodie Allen, you should check out his channel, wearehoodie. Here's one of his songs: Look at What We Started He samples tons of great bands, and his mixtape Pep Rally is free & awesome!
Chuck still remains one of my favorite TV shows, I love the whole Spy/Action/Comedy mesh that this show has, and this season has been great. Don't even get me started on the awesomeness of Jeffster.
Supernatural has been an okay season so far, I think it should've ended on season 5, but it's still pretty good. Sam was not himself for most of the season so far, but when he got his soul back, it was almost instant improvement.
Smallville's in it's tenth and final season, so far it's been decent, but there's waaay too many filler episodes for a final season, I feel that it should be all story and action, not the fluff that we're getting.
The Cape is an okay show, it has it's bumps and bruises, but it's okay. I hope it picks up and gets better, because if it doesn't, this show is definitely going to be cancelled.
Young Justice is a great DC cartoon. It doesn't exactly follow the comics, but I still enjoy it. I also love the inclusion of the new Aqualad, he's a badass character.
Being Human is an Americanized remake of a BBC show of the same title. I like the show a lot, and I hope it goes as far as the original series has.
My Life as Liz made an awesome return to TV tonight on MTV. I love it, it's hilarious, and the drama's pretty good too. Liz seem like an awesome person, and I love her hot nerdyness.
I've finally got caught up on my comics, lemme tell you about them. :P
I got The Walking Dead: Compendium One for Christmas, so far it's pretty great, I'm not finished yet though. My favorite character is Dale, he's an awesome old man.
Red Robin is great as usual, Tim Drake is my favorite Batman related character.
I love Booster Gold, he's my favorite superhero. I'm happy that he finally got over Ted Kord, and when issue #39 showed his grave, it was the most moving thing in comics that I've ever seen, and the same goes for Booster's statement. But in #40, I felt sad for Booster since he got banned from his favorite Sundollar. It was pretty WTF in the end when Rip said Booster has to pay for his crimes in the 25th century, oh well, I'll see what happens later this month.
Usually, Secret Six is hit and miss with me, but this crossover issue with the Doom Patrol was awesome! It was Secret Six v. Doom Patrol, and some major ass was kicked, the end of the fight will be revealed later this month, I'm fine with whoever wins, as long as nobody cool dies.
The Doom Patrol is my favorite super team, I even have their first issue from the 60's! :D Larry "Negative Man" Trainor is my 2nd favorite superhero, his powers are pretty awesome. It was cool seeing them fight cannibals and interact with General Immortus. It'll be even cooler seeing if they'll win in the fight between them and Secret Six. I wonder what'll happen when they get evicted from Oolong Island.
Batman Inc. is pretty good, I like Grant Morrison. My main hate for the series is the art that lies within.
Brightest Day is getting pretty intense. I love the focus on Deadman especially when he spent time with his grandpa. It was also cool seeing Hawkman and Hawkwoman break their curse, but it was also sad seeing the white ring kill them. Things got cool when Aqualad started to embrace his destiny, I'm really taking a liking to him. It sucked seeing Black Manta cut off Aquaman's hand, I hope it doesn't get replace with a harpoon-thing again, because Aquaman was lame like that. It'll be interesting to see how the Aquawar and Brightest Day turn out in the coming months.
Justice League: Generation Lost is one of my favorite new series. It's getting intense, and Max has turned the world on the JLI. Max has now captured Blue Beetle as well and I hope that his death can be avoided. I don't want to see Booster upset again, but maybe if Max kills Jaime, one of the heroes will go **** on him which would be cool.
I'm excited for what Geoff Johns has planned for DC fans, what with Aquawar, War of the Green Lanterns, and Flashpoint. Flashpoint looks to be the most important one, and it's what I'm excited about the most. It's nice to have Barry Allen in the limelight.
