Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, are back!

One of my favorite TV shows as a little kid is back! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have returned, and worry not old fans, its great!

The new opening pays homage to the old intro while keep it updated for kids, love the CGI which I know some have complained about. Also what I really like that each turtle looks different! Like in the old series if it wasn't for the bandannas each turtle looked exactly the same. I like spotting each turtles subtle differences.

I have also read the original voice that did Raphael is now doing Donatello's voice I thought something sounded familiar, it throws me off a little bit but its no big deal, glad they brought back an oldie for the new series. Also you will be glad to know that the people working on this series are fans of the Turtles, and the old 80's cartoon, so far in my opinion this show has done great justice to the TMNT franchise. Plus it has already been renewed for a 2nd season! 

This is one of the few shows I look forward to watching with my kid and actually enjoy

Turtle Power!.

Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker

Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker is quickly becoming one of my favorite in the series.

Well I decided to dust off the ole Metal Gear Solid HD Collection the other night and start Peace Walker. Really digging this game. It has a very Metal Gear Solid 3 feel to it, which is my favorite of the series. I love Big Boss's story and in this game you help gather troops and build up the famous Outer Heaven!

This game was built for the PSP and you can tell be some of the short missions, which I kind of like, cause I feel i can accomplish something and not have to invest in hours just to make it to the next part. One of the reasons I liked MGS 3 so much was the sneaking around in the jungle which this goes back to.

After seeing the video and teasers for Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes made me want to play this game which I you take control of a slightly older Big Boss. So i figured I better brush up on Peace Walker before Ground Zeroes comes out!

The new game look gorgeous!

Mass Effect Trilogy Announced

One of my favorite game trilogies is getting released as well... a trilogy!

Mass Effect even though with it controversial ending is still one of my favorite SciFi series in a long time. Glad to see that some can pick it up and enjoy the whole thing in one crazy long marathon.

Also new to the PlayStation 3 crowd the original Mass Effect will be coming to the PS3 for the first time and have trophy support as well. Only Mass Effect 2 & 3 were previously released on the PlayStation 3.

The 3 pack id due out on November 6th for Xbox 360 and PC. Those wanting to get it on the PS3 will have to wait a little longer, no date has been announced at this time. You will be able to snag all three games for the price of one game at $59.99. Pretty good deal for all the content in this game if you ask me!

Also get ready for N7 day, as Bio ware has declared November 7th as N7 day! Myself I plan on constructing a Commander Shepard armor out of cardboard and pulling an all night marathon while wearing and playing the games.

Ain't No Rest For The Wicked...

Borderlands 2 is out, NOW! So what are you waiting for?

Well I had a blast playing the first Borderlands, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the squeal! Well I may have to wait a while. I still need to finish the first. I started playing it, solo, and had to stop. This game is meant for Co-Op well my lonely looser self couldn't ever find or talk someone into playing this game. Finally I may have someone and some other interested in playing. They are supposed to get it in time for the weekend.

After we finish Borderlands, we will see if it hooks us enough to play the second one. If like RPS elements, and tons of guns and Co-Op this is your game! Until then check out the trailer.

Back Catalog Gaming Action: Grand Theft Auto IV

"Cousin, why have you not finished GTA IV? All the BIG american teetees you have been missing in this game."

Just like ole Roman has said I never finished Grand Theft Auto IV. Actually I barely started it all. Seems like something else came out and I dropped this game for another. Nothing is currently out so I got to thinking about what games I need to go back to. Then it hit me, I never finished Grand Theft Auto IV and the two major DLC packs they released. Lost and the Damned and The Ballad of Gay Tony. Well dang if that won't keep me busy!

First I head down to Gamestop, grab a used copy of Grand Theft Auto IV for $22 bucks on my lunch break then head back to work. Then I come to find out there is a complete edition that includes all the DLC and the game for only $30 brand freaking new! So after work I head back to Gamestop to take back the game and just get the complete version, brand new and with the DLC which would be much cheaper than downloading it.

Finally I get to sink my teeth into some good Grand Theft Auto senseless violence. I am not to far in the game only playing here and there running a few missions at a time. This game is soooo big. There is way to much to do, but that is a good thing, as long as it doesn't get stale I will be busy with this game for a while!
