Let’s Talk Star Wars Comics: Kanan

It has been two years since Marvel Comics has been publishing new Star Wars comics that fall in line with the new canon of Star Wars. For those unaware, after the acquisition of the Star Wars license by Disney, all stories of the series aside from the initial 6 films and Star Wars: The Clone Wars were considered non-canon. Since then, new stories in terms of books, shows, and movies have been produced to be the official continuations. Among these is an animated series called Star Wars Rebels, which is set 5 years before the events of the original film. The main character is a surviving Jedi by the name of Kanan Jarrus. The show follows him, and a group of five other rebels, fighting back as best they can against the empire. However, I am not here to discuss the show.

As of late last year, I was pleased to pick up some of the issues of Marvel’s new Star Wars comics. Among these, was the mini-series, Star Wars Kanan. This mini-series is set during the end of the Clone Wars. We see the titular character during his younger days, showing how he became the man we see in Rebels. Today, I will explain a little about this series.Read moreLet’s Talk Star Wars Comics: Kanan

Gears of War 4 Review – A Reason to Justify Purchasing an Xbox One

Gears of War 4 Review

 

Time to introduce the old COG to the new COG

For the past couple weeks I’ve become skeptical on the rise of sequels to games that we’ve come to know and love, that haven’t been innovative or released new IPs. When I initially saw that iconic COG symbol at E3 2014 I remained skeptical, initially excited, but skeptical. Now Gears of War 4 is out, and my god I couldn’t be any happier with this franchise. Running on a new engine with a new team behind it, The Coalition takes Gears into its own independent style while staying true to the original formula. In the end, it’s a concoction of blood, guns, and family, that makes Gears of War 4 one of my favorite entries in the franchise.Read moreGears of War 4 Review – A Reason to Justify Purchasing an Xbox One

Review: Obduction

When a game drops you on a lone planet with no direction, no plan, and no clue as to what is going on, the craving to explore is unparalleled. As the glowing sphere transported me to a new world in Myst and Riven developers new adventure “Obduction,” I was in awe at the beautiful wasteland that lay before me, and felt compelled to start my journey to discover the secrets, sights, and true purpose of the journey I’ve embarked on. It’s a game of trial and error, an examination of clues, moving from one town to another, retracing my steps, trying new solutions, often wrong and consumed by frustration, but when all the pieces fell together, that excitement grew back, and I was on my way to the next destination ready to take on the next puzzle that would follow.

The Witcher 3: Blood And Wine Review – A Perfect Last Round

This is it, the last story for the Witcher 3 games. Blood and Wine is a bittersweet farewell that gives you a last look at everything you loved about the games, in a brand new playground called Toussaint. The new region isn’t particularly massive, but big enough to take quite some time to fully explore and find all the new secrets and hidden treasures. Toussaint is, as Geralt loves to say, something straight out of a fairy tale. Full of knights in shining armor, a grand palace that can be seen from nearly any location on the map, and new monsters to fight that have some strange stories behind them.
