Here’s a Deeper Look at Midnight Suns

I’m intrigued by the upcoming Marvel superheroes video game Midnight Suns. I like a good Marvel video game, and I really enjoyed the XCOM games by the same studio. So Midnight Suns could be a lot of fun. And this longer video shows us how actual gameplay is going to work.

I still don’t know if I fully understand the card-based fighting mechanic…but it could still work. Move your characters around, and their powers are just shaped like cards instead of…I dunno, something more traditional like button presses. But yeah, Midnight Suns looks like it could be a fun game. I suppose I might wait to see some reviews before I dive in, but that’s a decision for future Sean. Right now, this just looks like a potentially cool video game.

Midnight Suns will come out sometime next year, I believe.

6 Things I Want in that New Wolverine Video Game

This is a welcome surprise. We all knew Insomniac was making a full sequel to their previous Spider-Man video game. Heck, I already made a list about what I want to see in that sequel three years ago! But I don’t think any of us had even an inkling that Insomniac was also working on a Wolverine video game! Now that is really damn exciting.

At least we can be sure that claws are in the game

Because I love doing this sort of thing, I’m going to do a new list of things I want to see in the Wolverine video game! I am a longtime fan of Wolverine video games. There have been some real gems over the years. From X2: Wolverine’s Revenge to X-Men Origins: Wolverine; guess they were all movie-connected to some degree. But that’s the old world! Now Wolverine can get his own standalone game, where he just Wolverines the heck out of the place!

Join me after the jump for what I’d like to see in this upcoming, potentially awesome Wolverine video game! And share your own hopes and dreams in the comments.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 6/26/21

Pretty average week for me, all things considered. Thankfully, we’ve got some good, solid, enjoyable comics! Mostly. The Hellfire Gala has some strong chapters, and that’s mostly about it.

Comic Book of the Week goes to S.W.O.R.D. #6 for the powerful, character-based, emotional Hellfire Gala issue I’ve been waiting for! This one finally shows what all the big moves have been about!

Because even you like good comics, Doctor

Meanwhile, at long last, several years in the waiting, I am finally playing Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. My favorite types of video games are the big, open world sandbox adventures, and this is supposedly the best of the all. But I didn’t own a Nintendo Switch. Now I do and the game is great. I might be playing this all summer!

Also, Heroes Reborn ended in a fun way. It all led to a big fight, as these things usually do. But this was definitely one of my favorite of the recent Big Events. I don’t read them all, but this one had some real charm and, as I’ve been saying all along, it had that sweet Amalgam Comics vibe that I love so much!

Comic Reviews: Detective Comics #1038, Power Rangers #8, Robin #3, Wolverine #13, S.W.O.R.D. #6 and Way of X #3.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 11/14/20

It has been a week since America decided to elect a new President and it’s been a pleasant week at that. I splurged on some new LEGO to celebrate. I bought the new Spider-Man video game. And I read some good to OK comics, like Iron Man and a bunch more X of Swords.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Power Rangers #1 because, just like last week’s Mighty Morphin, the new era of Power Rangers comics at BOOM! is just as much fun as its always been!

It’s on like Donkey Kong!

Meanwhile, as I mentioned earlier, I picked up Spider-Man: Miles Morales for the Playstation 4 and it’s great! It’s another fun dose of the already beloved Spider-Man PS4 gameplay, only now its Miles Morales-flavored. And the writers and developers went out of their way to find ways to make that special. Miles swings differently than Peter. He fights differently. And he lives differently. It’s great!

Comic Reviews: The Green Lantern: Season Two #9, Iron Man #3, Power Rangers #1, Marauders #15, Excalibur #14 and Wolverine #7.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/10/20

Welcome, everyone, to my second work vacation of the year! Since I didn’t take any time off while working from home during quarantine, I’ve got all my vacation time saved up for the final few months of the year. Not that I plan on doing anything interesting with my time. Reading a bunch of X of Swords comics, apparently.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #100 for a big, exciting Batman adventure. Gotta love some of those.

If only DC would do this to the Joker for real

Meanwhile, holy cow, have you been watching Star Trek: Lower Decks? I know it’s only available on CBS All Access, and only in the U.S., but jeez louise is it good! The season finale is insane! Hopefully they make it available on another service more accessible to the public. Harley Quinn didn’t really take off until it went to HBO Max!

Comic Book Reviews: Batman #100, Far Sector #8, Thor #8, Wolverine #6, X-Force #13 and Marauders #13.
