Spyro The Dragon- Remastered

Another Legend Is Coming Back

 

 

It clear to see with all the success that Crash Bandicoot has had with his current remaster that it is evidently clear that something legendary in the hay-day of the original PlayStation has to come back. Enter the Dragon; Spyro! Like that nod, I bet you do. From what the trailer showed, everything from the original has stayed true. Lets hope that the gameplay has been tweaked for the better, from what I remember that even though the controls were OK, the ramming feature was a bit weird.

The trilogy will be a remaster of the first three games and will be “Made from the ground up that will have improved lighting, improved environments, updated controls and recreated cinematics. Activision has promises “full analog stick support with smooth handling”

Insomniac Games is the original developer which is responsible for other game such as Ratchet and clank and the upcoming SPIDERMAN game for PS4. Toys for Bob is handling the remastering of the games with Stewart Copeland’s original soundtrack be remastered as well.

What do you all think about Spyro the Reignited Trilogy? Are you excited? Released Date is Expected to be in September 2018.

NEW CAST LISTING AVENGERS INFINITY WAR?

Earlier on Metacritic, a new listing of a certain character might show up in The Avengers Infinity War. A certain character that has only appeared in one movie that some may have not like in a fantastic movie…OK I’m not good with keeping secrets so here we go!!

Silver_Surver_vol.1-1_(1968)

The Silver Surfer has been confirmed to make a cameo appearance in the new Avengers movie! The list has Curt Clendenin portraying the silvery man surfer. But the question to ask is what is his part in the movie? The Silver Surfer was a major character in the Infinity War arc in the comics but it still remains to be seen on if he might be in the background or play a small role. Whit all that out on the plate, There are way to many superheroes on-screen already and adding the Silver Surfer to the mix might be too much. Apparently they already cut Captain Marvel out of the picture and unless they plan to kill every character in the film, who knows whats going to happen. What do you think?

DBZ Super Movie Trailer

With the Finale coming to an end supposedly for Dragonball Z Super, many folks thought that was it for the series. How many more transformations will we get? Seems like there might be another one in the movie considering what the trailer tells us. Who is Goku fighting? Where are they at? How long after Super is this going to take? Well think no longer the wait is over and here is Dragonball Z Super: The Movie (tentative title)

Lets just hope that its good and not 45 minutes of yelling, oh wait that’s all DBZ S is. Im sorry I forgot. Still the trailer looks fantasic even though its only a teaser. I can’t wait for the true trailer to come out. It seems like Goku Is going to be in an even bigger fight than he has ever been in before. Maybe super sayain 4 or 5 joins the battle?

PUMA X SEGA RS-0 SONIC SHOES

GO KICKY FAST AND FEEL LIKE SONIC

It seems that we will be able to go super sonic speed this summer with an all new shoe line with PUMA! Collaborating with SEGA making what we think is Sonic The hedgehog inspired shoes. At first glance, the teaser shows Classic Sonic running across the screen while the SEGA logo appears with the famous SEGA sound and then we are treated with various videos of Sonic zipping around levels from past games. WAY COOL!! While the video shows a sneaker in mosaic, I can’t wait to see what it really will look like. RS-0 Sonic is a reworked line of the PUMA 80’s Running line all the while with SEGA SONIC colors and design!

Although an official design has yet to be revealed, the release date is soon, June 2018. My speculations look like green hill zone on the bottom and Sonic colors on top. When sneakers go outside of lesser know subjects such as cartoons they sometimes are more successful since they tend to go outside of their respected market and reach mainstay audience. Earlier this year Adidas worked in Dragonball Z and Vans did a Spongebob theme with theirs.

HOLIDAYS (2016)

Boredom and Weird in one Package

Another Anthology movie that takes the Holidays and pits its it in the most boring horror movie way. They take seven holidays; Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, Christmas and New Years and try to provide a creepy movie yet fail in doing so. There are some moments in the film that do provide a weird atmosphere but fall short in providing the horror element. I have skipped watching this one seeing other people comments on the movie but the reason I had to watch it was because of Seth Green and even with him in one of the shorts, it really didn’t make the movie any better. He did do a good job acting and he does have that funny portrayal that makes him well him.

With out spoiling the movie, Valentines Day was just down right weird and about a girl on the swim team that look as weird as the character she portraits. Oh did I forget she has a crush on her swim coach? Yeah things only get weird from there. Nothing out of the ordinary or really for the horror genre either.

St. Patrick’s Day was probably the weirdest one out of the bunch. Following a school teacher and meeting a very peculiar student that doesn’t smile all while when she gets home is somewhat narrated by her mother via voicemail. After that there was something about a pregnancy and snakes?… yeah the snake thing was really weird. You would have to watch it yourself to find out. And what was up with the animal heads on human bodies?

Mothers Day was just boring but it wasn’t until Fathers day when it really got good. This single short was really good and the music set the atmosphere. It follows a woman who has thought her father was dead until one day she received a tape and tape deck. I really don’t want to spoil this short because it really hit the ball out of the park! If all else only watch this movie for this short.

Easter way just another weird one with a bunny man/Jesus character and I really don’t know how to explain it but the character itself was just terrible to look at. You could clearly tell that the guy had a rubber mask on and the make up effects where terrible as well.

The rest of the film just completely bored me to death, enough for me not to want to talk about them anymore. I do love the Horror anthology film genre that is coming out and the ones that are already out aren’t to bad to watch. This movie however is just plain boring and uninteresting to watch . If you haven’t seen this movie yet only watch it for FATHER’S DAY, it was the best one out of them all.
