Symbiote Action in New Spider-Man 2 Video Game!
Spider-Man is the star of a lot of great video games. And the current streak is 2 for 2, baby! Spider-Man and Spider-Man: Miles Morales were bangers. They were perfect. So you best believe I’m very excited for the new game. And we got our first real, full look at some story elements and gameplay in a video yesterday. And now I’m sharing that with you all!
Looks great to me! They do a lot of great things with Kraven in the opening cinematic. I’m a little surprised that he’s going to have enough goons at his disposal to populate an entire video game’s worth of henchmen. But we’ll see! I love the switching between Peter and Miles. It’s probably going to be a lot similar to Grand Theft Auto 5. I love the look of the black symbiote suit. I love the subtle ways it’s making Peter angrier — or not so subtle, it’s pretty obvious.
Game looks great. Can’t wait. But we gotta, until the fall.
The Top 6 Fishiest Mer-Ladies in Comics
The live action Little Mermaid movie comes out this weekend and I have decided to do a List of Six about mer-ladies. Not mermaids, unfortunately. I thought I could find six superhero mermaids in comics, but it was not to be. There need to be more mermaid superheroes. But I digress! There are still more than enough underwater superhero ladies to make a list. They don’t all need a fish tail.
I don’t think it’s weird at all that both Marvel and DC have their own aquatic hero: Aquaman and Namor. It makes sense to me. The ocean is cool. Atlantis is cool. Then both comic companies went ahead and started giving both characters tons of sidekicks. And in honor of The Little Mermaid, we’re going to look at the lady sidekicks in particular. And then, surprise surprise, they’re not just Aquaman or Namor sidekicks on this list. I did find some comic book mermaids to throw in, for fun!
So join me after the jump for a list that I wish was exclusively about superhero mermaids, but I had to make some concessions.Read the rest of this entry
Curiosity Killed the George
Joel Haver is a funny dude and I’m glad I found his videos on YouTube. Each one has been pretty darn hilarious, and he’s got a new banger out! This one is about Curious George. No spoilers.
Just damn funny. Inventive, clever, witty, silly and just plain fun, as far as I’m concerned. And I’m a comedic genius! Enjoy this video, and if you haven’t yet, feel free to go back in his history for some other great animated joke videos. You won’t be disappointed.
A Fun New Tenacious D Music Video
I spent the entirety of my vacation playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, so I am big into video games at the moment. I barely scratched the surface of what that game has to offer, so I’ll be playing it for a long time to come. Can’t wait! And in honor of video games, Tenacious D put out this fun new, animated music video.
It’s Monday, let’s rock out with Tenacious D. The animation is so adorable and well done! And the song is a hoot. So I would say a good time was had by all.
Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 5/20/23
What a difference a vacation makes! I’ve been off from work this whole past week, and I have spent most of my week playing The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. No time was wasted. I did get some cleaning done, and I read a whole bunch of comics. Seriously, so many comics from my reading list came out this week that I had to cut a few! We’ve got Power Rangers, She-Hulk, Superman, X-Men and even Fantastic Four #700!
Comic Book of the Week goes to Avengers #1 for an excellent start to a new series. The same could also be said for Titans #1, which is also an excellent start to a new team book. Jeez louise, this was a packed week!
Meanwhile, like I said, I’ve been enjoying Tears of the Kingdom. I’m taking my time to just wander around and explore, and watching all those YouTube videos on 10 secrets the game won’t tell you, or crazy construction projects. It’s all around fun! Beyond that…I haven’t done much else noteworthy this vacation. Lotta things I planned to get to that I didn’t. A real shame. Anyway, back to Zelda.
Comic Reviews: Avengers #1, Fantastic Four #700, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #108, She-Hulk #13, Superman #4, Titans #1 and X-Men #22.Read the rest of this entry
