The Movie Boys Best Their Buys

To take a line from Jim Sterling’s movie podcast, it’s time for the Movie Boys. I have here three new movie purchases.

First up is DOA: Dead or Alive. It’s over the top and ridiculous, but that’s to be expected if you know anything about the Dead or Alive gaming series (volleyballs and all). Kevin Nash as Bass Armstrong is the very best thing about this film. I watched it on a second viewing for him alone and it was totally worth it.

The Lost Boys was another movie I was reminded of by a review podcast. This one is called Say You Love Satan (and you know you do) and they talk about the horror genre. As you know, I’m not much into horror, but The Lost Boys is one movie that stuck with me that I saw growing up.

The third film is the 2003 remake of Freaky Friday starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsay Lohan. I think Curtis steals the show here. Sadly I had to settle for the DVD release from the same year.

Don’t think I forgot about the games because I got you covered. I was waiting for a good, cheap price for Grand Theft Auto V on the PS4, but it didn’t seem like it was ever going to happen. So I bought the used copy eStarland notified me about that they had in stock. I added Transformers: Devastation to complete the order.

Yesterday on Halloween I was at Best Buy and they had the 2016 Ratchet & Clank game for $20. I got it for $16 thanks to Usagi704 for letting me bum his membership off him for a quick moment.

New Releases 2013: March

newreleases030313

March is a month of big releases and one of the mainstays of this month over the last eight years has been God of War. Being a big fan of the series I was quite disappointed of the demo for Ascension. I’m sure I’ll pick it up eventually, but I don’t feel the need to right away like I have in the past.

I’m more interested in Tomb Raider and a possibility of Darkstalkers Resurrection, a compilation of the second and third arcade games.

Now Playing: January ’07

nowplaying0107

The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction was, by far and away, the game I played the most of during this last month. This game is without a doubt, and for a lack of a better term, incredible. Sure the graphics aren’t the best, but it doesn’t need to be. Why, you ask? Because as Alex Navarro put it in his review of the game, “everything in the game smashes and explodes real, real good.” I highly recommend this game to anyone.

Other games that I played some of were: Sonic Rush, Pinball Hall of Fame, Tekken Advance, and DOA2: Hardcore. The second zone while using Sonic in Sonic Rush has been a consistant pain to complete for me. Tekken on the GBA was only a little more exciting than Vitura Fighter 2 was on the Genesis. The addition of the 3-on-3 tag mode was fun. I loves me some old fashion style pinball and I got my fix with Usagi in two player mode. Afterwards, I was mostly getting my butt kicked in DOA2.

I recently bought the European version of Tomb Raider: Legend for the DS. I quickly ran through it in about three days. Having played the console version of the game made it easier to know what to do.

I’ve had Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance (GBA) for a couple of years, but I stopped playing it because I couldn’t ever find my way out of the Dark Forest in Act II. Now that I tried to find a way out and succeeded, I’m going to head on until the end of the game.

Another thing I wanted to mention was that I tried the Crackdown demo and it was fantastic. I’ll definitely be getting my hands on the full version of that game and it won’t have anything to do with what Bungie has added.
