It’s been a while since we’ve had one was back in January which focused on all the Fire Emblem stuff. Like the tweet above said this one is focusing on 3DS and Switch games with focus mainly on Splatoon 2 and ARMS, two games I’m really looking forward to. Are you looking to the direct and what are you hoping that they’ll show off?



It stinks

So this isn’t meant to be a full review or anything I just thought I’d sum up my thoughts on the critically panned Iron Fist show.

After having seen 3 episodes I can say that this show sucks. Not just by Marvel’s standards but just bad in general. Let me give you a run down of the show’s plot. 
Rich kid Danny Rand and his family were in a plane crash in Himalayas unfortunately Danny was the sole survivor and was probably going to die. Luckily, he was found by Monks and was trained in Martial arts to become the Iron Fist; destined to defeat their sworn enemy know as “The Hand”. You know, the bad guys that have appeared in Daredevil.

 

Not the deepest backstory out there and it sounds a bit overly ridiculous summarizing it. So years pass and his training his complete and goes back to NYC. He does this to help run his fathers company and reunite with his childhood friends Ward and Joy Meachum, who are coincidentally running the company. And here’s the problem with the show; he’s been presumed dead for 16 years and has no form of identification.

His hair is messed up, his clothes are dirty and worn out and isn’t wearing any shoes. He’s pretty much a hobo and it’s obvious that he did not think any of this stuff through. So pretty much the premise of the first two episodes is that Danny is trying to prove to the Meachums that he is the person that they once knew but the way he’s coming about makes any normal person believe that he’s crazy.

For starters, he breaks into his old home which Joy is coincidentally living there just to see what has changed. Another thing is that he hijacks Wards car (which he’s stated that he doesn’t know how to drive) and points a gun to his head to they can talk. Like what kind of sane person does that? He’s risking his and his supposed friends lives just for a simple conversation.

 

 

 

Even ignoring all of his crazy and unethical actions, Danny was able to prove to them that he was the person who he claims to be but they’re still in denial about. Which I can get but considering this is the same universe where aliens, the hulk, advanced artificial intelligence, gods & magic and the fact that New York is in danger for several times; at some point, you just need to acknowledge that things are possible. Especially considering the fact that their father died and came back to life by the help of The Hand.

Eventually they do come to terms that Danny is telling the truth, but they don’t want him to reveal himself because that would mean that he’s technically the owner of Rand Corp and it would ruin their plans. Which I understand because in a way they’re carrying out a task for a more powerful force even if Joy is unaware of the situation. 
So their plan was that Danny would sign a contract in which he would get $100 Million if he were to change his name and start a new life. My issue with this is that Joy’s excuse for this is that she wants Danny to move on with his life and stop trying to get involved with the company which is a stupid and idiotic thing to say.

This show is filled with stupid moments and it’s not like any of the characters are likable either. Ward’s just a massive jerk; there’s a flashback where he and the others were kids playing monopoly and he just throws the board on the floor, kicking Danny in the crouch just so he wouldn’t pay up. Colleen Wing (my favorite) who is pretty much the only ally Danny has at the moment has a student who participates in illegal fight clubs in order to help raise money to support his family. Wing disapproves of this because she believes it’s dangerous however later she goes and participates in the event because she needed money to pay rent. Which comes off hypocritical on her part.

Bottom line is that this show is not leaving a good first impression on me. To me it comes off as nothing but build up to “The Defenders” more than anything similar to how “Avengers: Age of Ultron” was pretty much set up to “Captain America: Civil War”. Which isn’t really a bad thing since that was what season 2 of Daredevil was doing was well but if feels like this show was an afterthought, just being made to establish that Iron Fist is a thing and he’s training to fight the hand who are going to be the main antagonist of that team up. From my understanding these first few episodes are considered to be where the show was good before it jumped the shark later on. That doesn’t fill me with much hope.



The remake to the SEGA Master system classic will be coming to PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch with the PC version coming at a later date

This is coming out a lot sooner than I expected. Wonder Boy is one of my most anticipated games of the year solely because of the visuals and music alone. There’s a lot of love being put into this remastered and I’m definitely going to buy it as soon as I can. I mean just look at how great this game looks



Disney has officially announced that the highly anticipated sequel to the hit film “Wreck It Ralph” is coming out exactly 1 year from today

I loved the first one and is one of my favorite Disney movies. I hope that the sequel will have more video game references than the first one. I’m also interested in what the plot is about since all we know is that Ralph wreck’s the internet.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



With all the Yooka-Laylee news that has happened I almost forgot to report on this. Here are this weeks batch of interesting characters

 

The one that interest me the most is Corplet Security mainly because he looks like the Kinect. I can’t wait to see what else this game has to offer.

 

 

 

 

 

 



Playtonic games announced this past Monday that every weekday they would reveal a character that’s going to be in Yooka-Laylee up until the games release or until they get bored. Which ever one comes first. Here are the first weeks round up and don’t worry non of these characters are spoiler heavy those are going to be a surprise

 

 

 

 

These look like an interesting batch of characters and I can’t wait to see what kind of personalities that they have. Remember guys Yooka-Laylee comes out on April 11th

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 



IGN shows off more of Yooka-Laylee’s multiplayer this time 4 player racing game called “Kartos Karting”.

It’s nothing ground breaking just looks like a fun mini game to play with friends on a whim. It actually reminds me of of R.C. Pro-AM on the NES which is fitting since that game was made by Rare ware.


Konami just uploaded the 4 minute opening for Super Bomberman R on their youtube channel. It highlights the personalities of the Bomberman brothers and the villain. I don’t know about you guys but I’m actually looking forward to this game.



Yesterday Nintendo’s Japanese youtube channel showcased two new trailers for their upcoming game ARMS. The first trailer was introducing us to all the announced characters and what makes them unique from one another. The other was showcasing the weapons known as “Gloves”.

I’m interested to see more of this game within the coming months.
