Logan Has Arrived in Theaters

I’ve found myself over the years increasingly becoming a fan of the X-Men.  We all understand their mutants, and each has their own different specialty.  But Logan, he was deeper than the rest.  He had a past that we (as viewers, I’m sure the comic book readers saw) never really saw.  Sure we knew he could be violent.  That was always kept to a PG status.

Logan is a complex deep character.  Always has been. Even before this stand alone film.  There was so much to be seen and felt and learned in this film about Logan.  A lot of emotions were felt, not just for him but also for Charles.

I don’t want to give away any spoilers.  But if you are a fan of the X-Men, or maybe just a fan on Wolverine, please take time to see the film.    It may surpass your expectations or be dead on.

I found myself loving this film, fight seems, under tones, and character development.  I highly recommend it to any fan out there who even remotely likes X-Men or Logan.

SDCC 2017 Returning Registration Date Announced!

Comic -Con is a mecca for comic and pop culture fanatics from around the world.  The hardest part is actually getting a ticket and hotel.  The date we’ve all be waiting for: March 11, 2017.  This the date that the returning registration will be open.  This is open to all past attendees who are eligible.  You can find out whether you are eligible by signing into your Comic Con account.  It will tell you up in the right had corner if you are Ok’d for returning registration.

Don’t worry though, if you should be unsuccessful on that date, you will have another chance on a yet to be announced date for Open registration.

On March 11th make sure you have a few things handy to make it a smooth morning for yourself (well as smooth as a day like this can be).

  1. Know your comic con id, and any comic con id’s of people you may be purchasing badges for, and their last name.
  2. Credit card information.  The quicker you can access it the better. I am hearing its going to be nearing $265 this year, that is including  Preview night.
  3. The link you will receive to the registration waiting room.  This is going to come to you in an email the day prior to the registration date. March 10.
  4. Know what type of badges you want to purchase and have a back up plan.
  5. There will be a registration code specific to each comic con id.  It will be in your Comic Con Id under “registration info”.  Very important.

Badges will be mailed to the address in your member ID.  Make sure you check it so that it is updated.  Do that as soon as you can.

Historically the registration process will begin at 9 am on the date decided, which is March 11.  It is a Saturday.   It can be a quick process or take a little longer so set aside some time.

Remember you can’t use a mobile phone or iPad, so you will have to be  at a computer.

Will you be ready for next weekend?  Best of Luck to you all!  Remember, there is always open registration.

For Honor Open Beta

I remember being on the E3 show floor and watching the big screen they had playing above us.  It was a game that showed a viking who was in battle, with some the most amazing weaponry and gear i’ve ever seen in a video game.  I watched, and finally the name of game scrolled across the screen. For Honor.

That has been over a year now, and I’m so happy about playing the open beta on Feb 9-12.  I chose to play as the Samurai and it is a game that I could find myself playing this for many hours.

The release date on For Honor is February 14th.   Will you be picking this game up?

Here is the first 15 minutes of gameplay, brought to us by IGN.

E3 2017 to be Made Available to The Public

 

E3 2017

 

E3, the Electronic Gaming Expo of the year has been made available to the public for the first time since it’s beginning. This is going to make for an interesting show floor, since it won’t be catering to industry or press only.  The gamers will be there and they will be heard.

E3 2017 is June 13-15 this year, while briefings will begin Sunday June 11.

Pricing for the tickets were $149.00 for the first 1,000 people.  After that it bumped up to $249.  This is a decent price for attendance to this exclusive event.

Many details of the show haven’t been disclosed to us yet. We do know EA will be there, inside and usually outside too.  This I find to be one of the best parts of E3.

If you haven’t bought your tickets yet and will be in the LA area, swing over to the E3 website.
