What's up everybody. I know its been a while and I do apologize for the long absence. I hope you all have been checking out the youtube channel and enjoying the content that I have posted.



This game is developed by Double Helix and is based off of the classic game from Capcom of the same name. This is the game that was just as hard as Ninja Gaiden on the NES. Most people remember the hero of the game, from the Capcom vs series. The game itself plays like a side scrolling brawler from the 90's, and it works. Graphically, the game is beautiful and the soundtrack is actually pretty good as well. The game is challenging and I find that enjoyable. There are equipment upgrades and different abilities that are found by exploring various areas in the game. I did have a couple of boss fights in my first couple of hours with the game and they are pretty fun. I am looking forward to comple…

The Movie
I have to say this movie was a lot of fun. I have to give it to Marvel Studios they are doing a very good job in their cinematic universe. For those of you that may not know this, The Winter Soldier is one of the best Captain America stories written. This movie does a good job of taking some of that story and mixing it with what we know from the first Capt film.

The Movie

This a new animated movie from Marvel and Japanese animation studio MAD HOUSE. It was written by Marjorie Liu. She has written for Marvel before and she does a very good job on the story. I don't think these two characters have ever teamed up before in the comics. I am sure there is probably a crossover where all of Marvel is involved and they have worked together but as far as a limited series with just the two of them I don't think it has ever been done. Which is interesting seeing as how they are kind of similar when you think about it. The story has a decent amount of action in it, which you have to have when the Punisher is involved. There are also a decent amount of cameos from other Marvel characters in the movie. Although I do have to say that the majority of the cameos happen at the very end of the movie. It was still nice to see. While I did enjoy the story for the most part, I f…
