I haven’t been playing games as much as I used to, mainly because life caught up with me. I don’t have time beyond swiping out my phone in the middle of the commute and sneaking a peek at a game now and then. Yes, people, I have a life. Or maybe I sleep too much when I’m not working. I don’t know.
Anyway, here are some of the games on mobile I’ve been playing lately.
I don’t know about you, but it’s been far too long since we’ve had a proper Doctor Who fix. We were left hanging after Matt Smith regenerated into Peter Capaldi way back in December’s The Time of the Doctor. Now it’s eight days before August 23, and we’ll get to watch Capaldi play a reportedly darker Doctor.
Are you excited? I know I am. Sound off your thoughts in the comments!
So last night, DC released this new image of Superman from the impossibly-titled Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice.
So here’s Superman standing and scowling at the rooftops of what appears to be Gotham City. Probably moments before Batman pounces on him and stabs him with a kryptonite knife.
So he has very minimal costume changes, but apparently a whole lot of fanboys have started to dissect the image and see what minuscule clues a heavily-photoshopped image can provide for the plot of a movie that is coming out in two years. Continue reading
I absolutely enjoyed the first Amazing Spider-Man. Sure, it had its faults – mainly being a reboot of a franchise that was still fresh in peoples’ minds, going through a lengthy origin story that was already tackled in depth by the Sam Raimi trilogy, and taking on almost the exact story beats that the first Spider-Man movie used, and an ultimately mediocre villain in Lizard – but it featured an origin that was faithful to the comics and a Peter Parker that was closer to the original Stan Lee characterization.
WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS FOR AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Continue reading
Damian Wayne is a little piece of shit.
That’s the first thing you need to know about Batman’s kid. But there’s a backstory to it, before you go off hating the… little piece of shit. He’s the illegitimate son of Batman and Talia al Ghul. He was raised, without his father knowing of his existence, by an isolated group of ninja assassins who commit terrorist acts in the name of the environment. His grandfather is Ra’s al Ghul, an insane assasin who is a few hundred years old, made almost immortal by a mystical pool of glowing green liquid.
Yeah, that will kind of mess up a kid’s mind.
Anyway, let’s talk about the animated adaptation of Son of Batman. In this story, Batman discovers that all this time he’s had a kid raised as a killer, by one of his enemies, and the mother of his kid just leaves Damian with Bruce. Oh no, a guy who has made a career out of alienating almost everybody in his life now has to connect with the son he never knew he had! Comedy ensues! Except not really. Continue reading
