Well just beat this game a couple of days ago, and wanted to give my first game review on it!

I should have started with a game that was good, but /sigh, I guess they can’t all be Portal 2, and also, it’s sometimes more fun to snark on something than to praise it to the high heavens!

In the first 4th Edition game, Daggerdale allows you to pick one of four archetypes, a Human Warrior, a Elf Rogue (ranged… ugh), a Hafling Wizard, and a Dwarf Cleric (healing ranged only, ugh) and that is IT… there is no customization other than the talents, no names, no voices, no other classes, NOTHING! That is VERY BAD… VERY VERY BAD! Especially in a D&D game where customization is the big draw to your stuff! BLEH!

The gameplay is … flawed… yeah, let’s go with flawed, the AI is bad, at best, there were times where I literally had mobs line up for me to chop down, and didn’t even raise a hand to me.  Clipping is also bad in the game, I walked through several walls as my warrior… yeah, not good.  The main characters have NO VOICES, and the voices for everything else is lackluster at best. GAH I wish I could find something redeeming about this game, but it is VERY VERY VERY hard to…

Dear WotC, you have had enough people complain about 4e stuff, then you release a game like this, I hope if Neverwinter is based on 4e, that it is MUCH better than this, or you might as well go ahead and buy up pathfinder, because you are gonna lose a LOT of people to it. I’m not one of them, but I do know some.

Stay cool my friends!

Well HOOOOOOWDAY all.  It’s been a while and I wanted to do this movie, since it seemed like an appropriate movie to do.  Let’s wrangle this puppy, y’all.

Let’s start with, even as a comic book nerd, I actually enjoyed this one!  It was a refreshing reboot to the series, and let’s face it, it needed it.  I would be glad thinking the first 3 movies never actually “canonically” existed in the universe.   There were only a few things that I have an issue with and they were more so just /facepalm things, and not necessarily bad things in general.

First, WHY CAN’T THEY MAKE BEAST LOOK GOOD!? In X2, he was bad, and this one he looked like a reject from Cats!  I mean, come on Fox!  All in all, I will hold my breath for a Hulk movie I like before I think Beast can look good.  Next, Magneto’s helmet was WAY too big, or Michael Fassbender ‘s head is WAY too small, either or, and let’s face it, when the prop is designed for one guy’s head, it looks WAY worse on another guys.  See: Kevin Bacon in it, sorry, but he was not that great in this movie in general, and ESPECIALLY not in that helmet.  Other than that, and Mystique looked a little offputting (and I’m not talking about in her blonde form… purr…) but I think that’s just because she was supposed to be younger and “rougher around the edges” kind of thing.

All in all, I actually agree with the reviews, not only is it a great comic book movie, but it’s a great movie overall!  I recompensed it to everyone, and yes, it DOES have a couple cameos that will either make you chuckle or facepalm.

Coming up soon will probably be Green Lantern, Transformers 3, Harry Potter, and whatever else!  If you have anything you would like me to spin on, let me know at Dragoskai@gmail.com, or follow me on the twitters at twitter.com/dragoskai

Stay cool my friends.
