This week - A trio of Comic book related topics, including Alison Mack's sex cult activities, April O'Neil allegedly being re-imagined as a black woman, and The recent vandalism of Gotham City Pizza. Was it a random break in attempt or an act of vandalism due to the appearance of Comic Artist Ethan Van Sciver?

Dark Souls Sunday Returns!

                       

About a year back, I had been doing Dark Souls Sundays, a pleasant little blind jaunt through the Souls games starting with Dark Souls and working my way to DSIII, with the possibility of doing a retrospect of the entire series at the end. I had decided to go through Bloodborne after Dark Souls, and ran into some issues with my streaming laptop, and had to basically go on hiatus until I was able to build my current rig.

Now, armed with a pretty decent computer, and steam versions of Dark Souls II and III, I feel like it's high time for me to get back into the habit of playing the games and getting that done. I enjoy the Souls series, because it's one of those games where it's easy to just talk and play at the same time.I also enjoy the fact that the game really plays up it's lore and wears it's influences on it's sleeve.

So if you're willing, come along and join me on my journey. If anything it certainly will not be a boring one!

Spiracy's Big Haul - Two duds, Two gems and a damn good time!

                       

Halloween is over and now it's time to move on into bigger and better things. I'm mainly talking about the two middle pickups. I neglected to put the first find in the image, which was a copy of Final Fantasy Tactics A2. Been wanting to play that for some time, now. Mighty no. 9 I got because I did promise that I would play it before I passed final judgment on the game, and Metroid: Other M I got as a speculative pickup; Mainly I needed to know if my feelings about the game have held up over time.  I'm sure you also noticed that I got Zelda Art and Artifacts, which was a great buy (considering I got it discounted from the cover price), as well as Senran Kagura: Peach Beach Splash, which has been my current obsession as of late. Watch the video to see me unbox the game, and show you what all comes with the definitive version!

Fullscream Bossfright - Three Urban Legends

                       

Happy Halloween, folks!  I originally had two videos planned.  If I had the time, I would release my Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark compilation, but sadly, with me being busy all day tomorrow, that's not going to happen.  I will release the second vid at a later time, but for now enjoy, and have a safe and happy Halloween!

Fullscream Bossfright - Night Trap

                      

Night Trap was a pretty interesting play through, Not only did I get some insight into game play that was eventually refined into what would be later known as the FNAF genre of games, but I got to witness the events that helped senators fear monger the industry into starting the ESRB. To be honest, Night Trap's visuals are incredibly tame by 2017 standards. I mean look at games like 2016's DOOM reboot, and games like Hatred and then put them next to video footage of someone implying that this co-ed's neck was being drained of blood by a rather gaudy looking modified hook with whirring parts. No contest!

Now that's not to say that I'm against violence in video games, and that the former games were bad for doing this. Quite the opposite. If you know the difference between fantasy and reality, it's pretty tame business. Just that people who are watching gaming from the outside in and aren't as savvy as the people playing games, will always try to moralize and grandstand about these types of things.

Saturday Boos-cade : Castlevania Judgement

                        

With Halloween quickly coming to a close, I wanted to do a special Saturday Bosscade. Last year, I did a playthrough of Terrordrome: Rise of the Boogeymen. Disappointingly, since I've upgraded to Windows 10. that game has some issues booting on my newer (better) computer. So thinking back to when my wife played against me in Castlevania Judgement, I kind of got the bright idea to play this with her for this week's Bosscade. Hope you guys enjoy
