Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 is Here

Today was the long awaited first day of Fortnite‘s Chapter 2 Season. Players have waited through Epic games longest season to date. We found ourselves looking for things to do once we finished all the challenges, and honestly there were quite a few. Yet even without challenges the game proves itself quite addicting. Even though Battle Royals seems to have no point it definitely is competitive.

Season 2 Chapter 2

This seasons theme seems to center around gold, fiends and henchmen. It now has a new Chaos engine, though personally I don’t see a difference. However we have to remember, it’s day one. Overall I think it will grow on me.

I definitely like the aesthetics of the game. It looks great, I’m more talking about the cut seems. As for the map, to me it seems pretty much the same with a few items added, some taken away. I still can find my way around the map and maybe stumble on some new landmarks. The battle pass is worth it, has a lot of skins and emotes, much like last season.

Peely in his suit.

As I said overall I like the game, I’m not quite happy that they have removed the snipers from solo games and still left grey guns in that mode. Now in rumble you have blue or better guns in the game and sniper rifles. Why it’s this way, I do not know. I’m hoping that they one day soon put in some transportation, these speed boats only work if the river is going to where you’ll be out of the storm. I see heli pads around but no helicopters as of yet. Day one is a mixed bag of likes and dislikes. I do think Epic listens to its players so we may see some patches soon. What are your thoughts?

Long Beach Comic Expo 2020

This years Long Beach Comic Expo was filled with many vendors, great cosplays, fun for everyone, and even some learning opportunities found down in the NASA area.

We spent our day speaking with vendors and comic creators as we walked the show floor. I have to say, each year the Long Beach Comic Expo gets better and better. They have secured more vendors and interesting comics. I love to go through the comics and find one that opens my mind to different worlds. If we are lucky the creator is there and I get a chance to speak with them. You get the story behind the story and I absolutely love to have that chance.

One staple at Long Beach Comic Expo is Wild Bills soda truck. It may seem small but it is an absolute must. Sometimes they have special cups commorating the event. Once you buy a cup, you get free refills all day. When you are spending a day at an Expo, this is one of the most cost effective things that they have in the building. It is one of my favorite attractions.

One of the best things about having a comic expo is being able to see your friends. We all spend a lot of time reading the comics, emulating our heroes and talking about our fandom. When you are at the Long Beach Comic Expo, you are all one, no matter what fandom is your favorite. Seeing a friend who you might not see on a regular basis, is a very rewarding feeling.

There is one important thing I find when I go to Long Beach Expo. It’s not overwhelming. The crowd is controlled. Getting into the Expo is not a hassle. Once you get in you are able to move around and really take a look at each booth. Over crowding can be an issue that makes the experience not quite fun. This is not the case at the Long Beach Comic Expo. Its an expo you can fully embrace and enjoy. We look forward to the next time there is a Long Beach Comic Expo or Long Beach Comic Con. I highly recommend if you are in the area, or can’t get to San Diego Comic Con, this is the convention I prefer. It’s just an over all fun expo to attend.

LA Comic Con 2019 Is Upon Us

This weekend, October 11-13 2019, at the Los Angeles convention center, we have a spectacular comic convention in full swing. I’ve gone to every LA Comic Con through the years, and this year, there is a clear difference in the feel of it.

The convention in general seems much more organized, it was easy to get in, and not too crowded to walk around. The vendors are more diverse and offer some really great items. There is really something for everyone.

As I walked the floor today I saw some amazing cosplays. Its refreshing to see what people can come up with when they decide who they want to depict in their cosplay. Its even more amazing to know that they have made the costume themselves. Some are even functional. Its a photographers heaven.

One of my favorite things to do is to go to Wild Bills. It’s where you buy a cup, usually a cup that is reflective of the venue, and then there is the awesome variety of soda that is available. Personally, I am always getting Sasparilla. In fact, I’ve never tried any of their other flavors. I love the fact that once you buy the cup you get free refills all day. Its a great idea with a solid product.

LA Comic Con is a convention that is for everyone. From young to old, there is something that is appealing. The cost per day isn’t going to break your bank, and you will be able to buy the cool things that catch your eye.

This was the first day, and this is just a quick recap, very quick of my first impression of the day. I will be in attendance tomorrow, which will allow me to write more in depth. I did pick up some comics I will be reviewing and I also have 3 Hot Toys I would love to show you.

If you are going, or even if you can’t, let us know on our facebook, or twitter what you’d like see. Again, I highly recommend this convention, it has a good vibe to it.

Comic Con 2019 Begins in Two Days and We’re Here

Every year we like to come down to San Diego CA to see the city transform for the three of the most craziest days San Diego sees each year. The transformation literally takes place overnight. I’m seeing building wraps go up on buildings, pop ups popping up. I haven’t been all over but I’ll tell you what I have seen.

I went down to the Horton Plaza where a pop up shop of FYE was there again. I stumbled on them last year when I went out to the Amazon Treasure Truck for am exclusive Funko pop. This is further way from the convention nut one of the best things to do outside of it.

Maryjanes at the Hard Rock Hotel is turning into “The Good Place”. Let’s just say a lot of pancakes will be made and enjoyed.

Amazon Prime was setting up. I wasn’t able to go in but from what I read and saw it’s sure to be an awesome experience. Hard Rock is turning into SuperStore for those familiar with that show. One can not forget Super Store 7. Which will be full of classics monsters. Wolfman,Dracula, etc.

The next few days will surely bring much joy to many people and the transformation will be complete!

Tonight we are staying at the Hard Rock, it’s a comfy hotel with great amenities.
