No GravatarWelcome back to another video, as you can tell in the title we will be talking about Marvel vs Capcom Infinite! Yesterday Capcom announced that new characters, three additions of the game, and a new cinematic storyline would be coming to this version of Marvel vs Capcom!

I’m pretty excited about all the announcements that came yesterday, but I do have a bit of concern about the title. Will it go through the same growing pains that Street Fight V did? Or has Capcom learned from their mistakes? Only time will tell!

Below, I have the press release listed for your viewing pleasure. Please make sure to leave a like on today’s video, comment, and subscribe!

No GravatarLogan

20th Century Fox

Run Time 2h 17min

Rated R

20th Century Fox has gotten a lot of flack over the years about their handling of the X-men cinematic universe. Some of the flack, this author feels MIGHT be warranted, other parts not-so-much. The success of Deadpool and the fact that Fox has basically let Marvel call the shots with the next wave of films is starting to show promise.

Now it is time to get back into the X-men Universe with the release of Logan. Directed by James Mangold, this is the last of the Jackman-Wolverine solo movies, and it is a thrill ride from the first frame to the last. Set in the not-too-distant future, Logan places you in a world where the mutants are all but extinct. The world actually resembles today, Xmen are now comic book characters, action figures, and pictures on t-shirts. Mutants are the stuff of legend and lore. So when people hear about the Wolverine, it is almost mythical.

The story is about an aging Logan, trying to help care for an ailing Professor X  in an outpost near Mexico. Along with Caliban, they have a pretty peaceful existence, until Logan is contacted by someone needing his help to save a young girl, and here is where things get interesting.

The next piece of the story without spoilers is the X-23 project. If you are a fan of the comic you know the story. For those who don’t, in Logan, the central focus is the little girl Laura aka x-23. She is the result of a government genetic program designed to create new mutants as weapons. Some of the doctors are not happy with what they are seeing, so they help some of the kids escape. Logan is sought out and this is where things get crazy. It is up to Charles and Logan to save her and make it to Eden.

The story between Laura, Charles, and Logan is the highlight of this film. The banter between those three is the glue that holds the movie together. There is a point in the movie where Logan refers to Charles as his “dad”, and it fits so perfectly. Laura is actually genetically Logan’s daughter and unwittingly acts like it throughout the film. The emotion is woven into the fabric and pacing of the film.

The emotion holds the story together, but it is the gritty action and fight scenes that keep the story moving. The scenes in this film are some of the most intense we have seen in the Wolverine cinematic universe to date. These scenes are also very satisfying and very relevant to the story.  Logan is trying to save his “family” while helping a cause that is is not 100% on board with. The pacing of the action sequences is a thing of beauty. The young actress playing Laura (Dafne Keen) is a great action star. She has the same disdain for people that Logan has at first, but as the story progresses, she learns she can count on friends.

Logan is the perfect way to showcase Hugh Jackman’s final solo Wolverine performance.  This film has what great films need, great writing, on point pacing, great performances, edge-of-your-seat action, and most of all, heart. You will not be disappointed with this film. This author recommends viewing it more than once.

No GravatarWe all as of March 1, 2017, it has been revealed by several sources who had the Nintendo Switch console in hand, that it does, in fact, use friend codes to add new players to their friend list. The friend codes are part of the Nintendo Network ecosystem because of the New Nintendo 3DS/3DS handhelds. People seem to have forgotten that fact.

Here is the friend code input screen courtesy of Eurogamer.

The friend code input screen is updated from the 3DS version. Now, this may seem like a step back for some. That is not the case. Now with the My Nintendo service, you can now link your Nintendo Network ID to social media services like Facebook, Twitter, and Google. You can know add your friend Tiffany through social media and no friend codes. Easy Peasy!! Also if you play Super Mario Run, Miitomo, or Fire Emblem Heroes, you can add your friends to the Nintendo Switch as well.

Your Profile page showing the number of friends and games in your library.

 

The world can calm down now. Hopefully, you will realize even though Nintendo has made some mistakes, they are trying to make things less complicated with The Nintendo Switch. We will update this as the console is released.

No GravatarBack in January, during the Nintendo Switch Presentation, Nintendo Tatsumi Kimishima announced the price and release date of the Nintendo Switch console. A couple of minutes later he talked about region locking, and how Nintendo Switch will be region free.

Now, this author jumped for joy when this was announced. Now import games can be purchased with no hassles just like Sony did with PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Now you can add My Nintendo accounts from ANY Region and if you are in the US, you can tie your debit/credit card to your accounts and buy games and download demos worldwide. (as of right now this is the case. This article will be updated throughout the launch weekend)

You can have up to 8 Users on the Nintendo Switch. Here is where you can add all of your worldwide accounts. (if you do that sort of thing) You can also browse and download from each region with ease. This is one of the most exciting features of the console. You will now have more of a varied game experience. Thanks for opening your minds Nintendo.

No GravatarI had the pleasure of exchanging emails with the creators of the new indie comic Godhand, and boy, do they have a story to tell. Conrad Iwanicki is the writer of the comic and the artist is Ronald Nelson. Together, they have with a uniquely compelling story about a deeply “flawed” individual, along the lines of Deadpool and Batman.  Please take the time to check it out. What drives Conrad was the suicide of his mom, who is a Disabled Veteran two years ago.

KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED FOR “GODHAND” Partial Proceeds to Benefit Veteran Mental Health Organization, Give An Hour Sneads Ferry, NC, December 16, 2016– Effective immediately, the official Kickstarter campaign has been launched for ‘Godhand’, a graphic novel. A relevant story propelled by an average guy going through the mundane motions of the corporate world. The lead antagonist, Bryce Powers (i.e. “Godhand”) finds himself at a fork in the road where he ultimately becomes the anti-hero. Written to substantiate that all who walk this world aren’t out of redemption’s reach, “Godhand” touches on a variation of descriptions: contemptuous, witty, poignant, cheeky, and harrowing. This graphic novel written by first-time author Conrad Iwanicki and illustrated by established American Manga artist Ronald Nelson, known for his work on (H)afrocentric, is, above-all-else, relatable, significant and noteworthy amongst modern comic literature and prose. While the ultimate objective is to self-publish and create a franchise with staying power, the story behind “Godhand” is both somber and inspiring. Iwanicki found the inspiration to create “Godhand” upon the recent suicide of his mother, Carrie Iwanicki [1962-2014]. A veteran of the United States military, she found herself in a compromising position, one familiar to countless veterans of our armed forces: lacking proper mental health care, disheartened, disconnected, suicidal. Page | 2 “My mom had a heart the size of the ocean, she truly lived to help others. Her suicide was senseless and fairly ironic considering a person that would help anyone couldn’t get the help she needed. With the success of ‘Godhand’, not only can I continue her legacy of selflessness, but hopefully I can do my part to stem the tide of 22 veteran suicides a day, so no other son or daughter has to experience the needless loss and sorrow I have.” -Conrad Iwanicki, Author Piecing together his personal relationship with the effects of the mental health of those who so selflessly give their services to our country and their families, Iwanicki will be donating proceeds from “Godhand” to the non-profit organization Give an Hour, “a national network of mental health care providers who give an hour of their time each week to help members of the military and their families cope with the “unseen wounds” associated with military service.” [www.giveanhour.org] A sample of dialogue and concept art can be obtained and viewed, respectively, at the website, www.godhandcomic.com. This project is in need of immediate funding to successfully reach its ultimate potential; more information on “Godhand” and how you can help is available on the Kickstarter campaign page now: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1092670955/godhand-a-graphicnovel/description.

Please check it out and share this article with any veterans in your family. The free sample of the story can be found here.  Also check out and donate to Give an Hour.
