More SDCC Trailers Give Us Doctor Who and a Really Bad Ninja Turtles

I am just one man, blogging, while also at my day job. There’s a very good chance I won’t get to everything that comes out this weekend from San Diego Comic-Con. But I can post a new trailer like anybody’s business! And these are a bunch that arrived last night!

First up, a proper teaser trailer for the new season of Doctor Who, starring Jodie Whittaker. I like this much better than the quickie we got earlier in the week. We get some actual Doctor in this one, some real personality.

Next up is a story trailer for the Spider-Man game coming to Playstation 4 on Sept. 7. Now that I actually own a Playtation 4, I’m actually very excited about this game. So any new look at what we’re going to get is exciting.

Even if it still runs the risk of being a bad game. We’ll see.

Another trailer we got is a look at the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I quite enjoyed that cartoon, and I guess enough fans did as well that Disney is bringing it back for another batch of brand new episodes!

Anything that gives us more Ahsoka Tano is good news to me! Even if the ultimate Ahsoka/Darth Vader showdown already exists.

Finally, we got another look at that new Ninja Turtles cartoon, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. This first look also provides a couple minutes of actual episode. And I can honestly say I won’t be having anything to do with this show. It looks terrible.

That’s not to say I’m one of those bitter fans complaining about how this new show is killing my childhood. Not at all. I’m simply recognizing that this show is not meant for me, and therefore I won’t take part. The animation, the comedy, the entire style of the show is just not for me. But I wish everybody involved the best of luck and I hope their take on the Turtles is successful.

Be sure to keep returning to my blog today as I dutifully attempt to upload all of the trailers and news that I either can or care about.

Awesome Uncharted Fan Film with Nathan Fillion!

We live in a world where intrepid people in the world can just put together their own amazing fan film of any property they want. Remember that sweet Mortal Kombat movie from a few years ago? That led to a pretty awesome web series, and I think some solid career opportunities for the creator.

Well now director Allan Ungar brings us a fan film about the Uncharted video game series. And he’s got Nathan Fillion in the starring role of Nathan Drake!

Yep, that was pretty darn amazing. Well made, well acted, well written; I would love more of these. Heck, I’d be down for an entire movie like this. I’ve barely played the Uncharted series, but that was a darn good short film!

Spider-Man + Genius = Internet

Want to have a little bit of wonderfulness to start your Monday? Watch this amazing mixture of the upcoming Spider-Man video game and the classic Spider-Man cartoon show theme song!

The geniuses at Ascender are a cruel reminder that I am a talentless hack. This is the sort of video that makes me happy to be alive!

Even More Video Game Trailers!

A bunch more video game trailers came out of E3 this weekend, and I’m the sort of guy to share them all on a lazy Tuesday!

Like, how about Fallout 76?

Looks like fun! I’m always down for a new Fallout game. Word has it this is going to be some kind of multiplayer survival game. Not sure how that will change things with the normally single player series, but we’ll see. I’ll probably be down either way.

Then we got a trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey, which will take place in Ancient Greece.

I love me some Ancient Greece…but really only the mythology. And I doubt the new assassin is going to fight the chimera or ride Pegasus. He’s probably just going to fight Templars, like normal.

Still, I very much enjoyed Assassin’s Creed: Origins, so I’ll probably give this one a shot as well.

There was also another trailer for Beyond Good and Evil 2!

Since I did go ahead and buy that Playstation 4, this game is on my radar again. I still don’t think it has anything to do with the original Beyond Good and Evil, but whatever. They can make any game they want and tangentially connect it to any previous game they want as far as I can. Just make it good!

Man, there were so many trailers I don’t have the time or energy to share them all. These are just the games I’m most interested in that I saw. There’s also a Resident Evil 2 remake, some new footage from that upcoming Spider-Man game, and there was even footage of The Last of Us 2 — though I didn’t watch that, because I have yet to play the first The Last of Us. It’s sitting on my desk right now, right next to my new Playstation 4. I’m building myself up for it.

Cyberpunk 2077, the Next Great Video Game, Has Been Revealed!

E3 was this weekend and a lot of fun video games were announced and/or revealed. The one I am most excited about is Cyberpunk 2077, by CD Projekt Red. If you’re not familiar with that developer, they’re the geniuses behind The Witcher series, including The Witch 3: Wild Hunt, arguably the greatest role-playing game of all time.

So there’s a very good chance that Cyberpunk 2077 could be the greatest role-playing game of all time.

I am very excited for this game. We don’t have a release date yet, but it should be in another year or two. CD Projekt Red announced this game a bunch of years ago, then went silent while they finished off The Witcher 3 and its DLC. Now they have a trailer and something to show, so hopefully the hype will just keep building.

From what I’ve gathered on the web, including people deciphering hidden messages within that trailer, this looks to be another single-player role-playing game set in a crazy future America, full of gangs and mega-corporations. So all the greatness of their Witcher RPGs, but in a new world with a new franchise, where there is no limit on creativity.

I was going to complain about the main character in the trailer being another white guy, but I’ve also heard that we’ll be able to create our own main character, so that settles that. I love creating my own character, and to be able to do so in a CD Projekt Red RPG should be phenomenal!
