Flicks of 2014 – Guardians of the Galaxy

 

 

 

The best superhero team you’ve never heard of.  Seriously, even my knowledge of these cosmic defenders is a little light, so underneath the barely a trailer trailer I’d found (update 02/20: The barely a trailer trailer has been replaced with an awesomer, official version – yay!) – is IGN’s synopsis of Guardians of the Galaxy. With a little background information it makes me see why they were chosen for Marvel’s phase II movie plans, honestly though, I would watch the movie alone just for Rocket Raccoon. Never the less the Marvel studios movies have been pretty good so far and I don’t see how this year’s super team movie is going to fail so I would watch if I was you. If nothing else you get to see how this all ties in with the next Avengers movie.

Flicks of 2014 – Captain America: The Winter Soldier

 

After the ‘Avengers’ the team went their separate ways to take the aftermath of what happened: Iron Man picked a fight with a terrorist, Thor fought darkness and won, and in Captain America: The Winter Soldier it looks like the good captain will be kept busy as well. Fight enemies on the battlefield is easy, but fight changing ideology is hard, as S.H.I.E.L.D. is taking a more jack-booted approach to crime fighting. Now only that but it seems that a enemy from Capt’s past has returned and waging a personal war against him – and his allies. So what will he do? Will he change in this more fearful time to protect the greater good, or will he remain true to himself and what’s right. The only way to find out is to watch the movie and find out.

 

 

 

Flicks of 2014 – X-Men: Days of Future Past

 

Ok people the current X-Men movies range from OK to surprising good, but that stuff stops now because ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ should (I say again should) be the movie that brings the vigilante mutant group to full prominence in the eyes of move goers everywhere. Set in a time where the mutant/human war will end up destroying them both, the two most powerful mutant leaders (and long time rivals) must send everyone favorite antihero (the Wolverine) back into the past and stop what is to come. This tale has been told many times in X-Men lore before, but never on the big screen. This will be epic people, and the only thing that could top it is Avengers vs. X-Men. but that will never happen in the theaters (thanks Fox…).

 

 

 

Mini Game Review +Walkthrough 4 U : Superhero’s Choice Vol.1

shc1

 

 

The final Delight Games (so far) is Superhero’s Choice (Vol. 1), which is a cross between Wizard’s Choice and Bionic Bikini. This story stars a faceless citizen who, by day, struggles a living as a taco food truck owner & chief. However by night (most times), she becomes the Red Revenger the shadowy (if not well known) hero of San Angelo. One of many in fact, the best of the best were the Vanquishers – however that all changes when an unknown flying craft comes and abducts the super team and thus leave the city unprotected. So now the city needs a protector and the Vanquishers need a hero, looks like this is a job for the Red Revenger! Now Superhero’s Choice is standard fare for Delight Games: various stats go up and down depending on your choices. However the setting is superheroes, which means costumes, humorous names, powers and gadgets. The Revenger is a gadget girl and all her gear requires nanotech fuel, without it she has to rely on wits and fists to win – which may not be enough at the end of the day. Also not being a daughter of a wealthy industrial family (cough-Bruce Wayne-cough) the Revenger needs money to keep up with her expenses. It is because of these two elements (fuel & money) that makes Superhero’s Choice one of the more difficult CYOA games to play through. However the story is class comic book fun and the characters come into their own, despite not being as edgy as most modern heroes. Once again Delight Games earns another pass & walkthrough at the Video Game Armada (got to be record).

Flicks of 2014 – RoboCop (2014)

 

Since the Game & Gear list was a little short this year (well at least until I find out some more define release days – stay tuned) I decided to padded it out with a few upcoming films for this year that you should see. First of which is the Robocop reboot. Now I was a little concerned when I first saw what the new Robocop was going to look like, but after seeing the trailer my mind was put at ease – see for yourself.
