42: X-Men Apocalypse, No Man’s Sky, & Pokemon!

In this episode, Justin and Tony talk about their experience with X-Men Apocalypse. Also, news of No Man’s Sky being delayed has an emotional effect on one of the cast. There are rumors that Pokemon is having translation issues and the question is posed if Assassin’s Creed would have originally made a better movie than a videogame.

Thanks for listening!

Notes:

Episode 42: Sex-Men Apocalypse

Prof. X and Apoc fight reminded me of Gandalf and Saruman

Forgot about Wolverine and was pleasantly surprised to see him even though he had bad hair and a stupid thing on his face/chest

I like Sansa Stark in everything

I would have preferred more time with each new character

Scott (Cyclops) is useless as always

Essex Company/ Mr. Sinister/ Cable/ Deadpool/ Clones/ Jean Grey/ Scott Summers

Better than I expected

Quicksilver scene was fun but maybe too humorous for the tone

Too many jokes break the tension

Where’s Psylocke going?

Why did Strom change sides at the end?

 

No Man’s Sky releasing August 9

Infinite Warfare most liked and disliked COD trailer of all time

First Episode of ELeague

Nintendo changing the names of Pokemon on China

Would Assassin’s Creed originally be better as a movie than a game?

39: Esports, Luke Skywalker, and Gamefly

Episode 39: Gamefly and (?) Assassin’s Creed Trailer Notes

Assassin’s Creed trailer. Kayne West?

  • Music changes the whole tone
  • Movie takes out everything I found enjoyable about the game (parkour, violent takedowns, jumping in hay) Should be rated R to have takedowns violent enough
  • New animus?
  • Best part of AC1 was discovering that Abstergo was Templar and tearing it apart from the inside. This trailer seems to make Abstergo evil from the get-go
  • Biggest problem with videogame movies is the lack of gameplay

Gamefly possible Netflix of videogames?
