And the World Went Just a Little Bit More Mad With a Detective Pikachu Trailer

When I first heard they were making a movie called “Detective Pikachu”, I giggled at the Internet’s campaign to make Danny DeVito do the voice. That would have been hilarious.

Now that we have an actual first trailer, my mind is boggled for reasons I never expected.

A live action Pokemon movie?! With creepily realistically animated pokemon?! Like, the Pokemon universe created in live action? And the story they go with is Pikachu as some kind of snarky private investigator?! It’s madness!

Clearly we were always meant to take Detective Pikachu seriously.

6 Genres for Rockstar to Develop Next

Look, I’m going to level with you fine readers. I’ve spent the past week hip deep in Red Dead Redemption 2, gleefully shootin’ and hollerin’ my way across the old west. Or the new west, whatever the story might be. I haven’t done very much critical thinking beyond whether or not to rob that stage coach. So how about a list of other storytelling genres video game developer Rockstar could develop games for?

Rockstar Genre List 01

I’m still not entirely sure if that’s Arthur or John in the logo

The beauty of a Rockstar game is in the immersion. There are plenty of well-made sandbox games out there, but none reach the depth of world like a Rockstar game. From growing and styling your beard to polishing your guns to tracking animals to realistic mud physics, Red Dead Redemption 2 is a work of art. It’s a game where I like to just walk around, because it wouldn’t fit the story/world/character if he sprinted everywhere.

So Rockstar needs to abandon whatever money-making plans and start whole new franchise! They’ve got cops & robbers with Grand Theft Auto, they’ve got the wild west with Red Dead Redemption and they’ve got a boarding school setting with Bully. Join me after the jump for some loosely imagined other options!

How Does Red Dead Redemption 2 Look This Damn Good?

I probably say this every time a new Rockstar game comes out, but check out the graphics on Red Dead Redemption 2! How does this game look so damn good?!

Coincidentally, I have the week off from work when this game comes out, so I think I’ll be enjoying my staycation! Releases Oct. 26.

Just One More Thing About Spider-Man…

The new Spider-Man video game is great. You should all buy a Playstation 4 so you can play it. Here’s an Honest Trailer to celebrate!

I have since beaten the game 100% and collected all of the trophies, which I’ve only ever done for one other game before. I have nothing left to do in Spider-Man but enjoy the web-swinging and fight some general crime. It’s maddening! I want me some DLC, but it’s a month away!

Somebody help me! Or maybe I’ll just start God of War finally.

6 Things I Want to See in a Spider-Man Video Game Sequel

I’m so glad I splurged on that Playstation 4 earlier this year, because the new Spider-Man video game is spectacular! I daresay it’s the perfect Spider-Man game, with a great story and super-fun gameplay. Barring some sort of 1:1 fully immersive VR experience, the new game from Insomniac is as good as a Spider-Man game can get…until the inevitable sequel!

Spidey Game List 01

Video Game Rating: 10/10 – Fantastic!

The web-slinging is fun, the cityscape is expansive, the fighting is a blast, with a ton of moves and so many web attacks I lose track sometimes; and best of all, the story and the characters are purely perfect Spider-Manery! Spider-Man for the PS4 is an event! And I daresay a sequel is already in the works, which should improve upon everything for an even better game!

I, being the helpful, no-name blogger that I am, have cobbled together a list of things I would like to see in the sequel! And feel free to share your own hopes and dreams in the comments!

Warning: There will be FULL SPOILERS for the game, so tread carefully.
