January Loot Crate: Origins

img_20170124_072430.jpgimg_20170124_072256377.jpg

  • Mario Bros. Shirt
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Pin
  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Tiki Mug
  • Captain America Shield Replica
  • Superman Action Comics

My favorite item here is the shirt. Not only is that my actual birth year, it’s MARIO. The pin is cute, the mug is like a shot glass, really, and shield is cute, and I’m keeping that comic in the plastic because I’m paranoid, but that shirt is the star here.

The only thing I dislike about this crate is it makes me feel old as fuck… But that can’t be helped.

I don’t know exactly what I would have expected from an ‘origins’ crate but this stuff is ok. It seems a little light on items overall but that Mario shirt makes me too happy to care.

Finally Watched It: Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist

I was talking with a patron about the sad state of live action video game movies and he mentioned this to me. So, I give it a try and… Well…

This movie goes into Ken and Ryu’s training in the mountains with their master and while, yes; this movie is much better than Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, Dragonball, and BloodRayne, I have to say this was very boring.

I understand these are video game avatars before they are characters but they are so cliche and predictable, I couldn’t even find it funny. Whoever made Ken’s wig was clearly out to torture the actor. I know that’s what the game character looks like but I have true difficulty believing any person – especially a martial artist whose survival may depend on a clear field of vision – would leave that much hair hanging in their face all the time.

Even though it’s campy, predictable, and somehow so slow I was bored enough to fall asleep (I never made it to disk 2), I can tell there was more effort, pride, and care in this movie than in any other movie I’ve mentioned in this post. I wanted to like this, I really did; but I just felt tired during this; wondering what book I could be reading. And that’s a shame, too. It’s a pretty movie to look at and, like I said, effort was obviously made to make something cool for the genre.

Uhoh, Lenni Want’s to be on YouTube

If you’ve been keeping up with me on Facebook or on Twitter or even here, you may notice I’m all up in YouTube with the gaming walkthroughs will commentary. CrazyShootin started it all and now I’m on TheRadBrad, inLove, and agentjr watching games that I haven’t gotten to play or want to play… Or have been ruined for me by my ex. But that’s a long and depressing story. :p

Now, I am DYIN to get the tech necessary to record myself playing these games because hilarity ensues when I get frustrated or scared of these things. Also, what better platform to talk about my life than horror games? ;D It would be a much more comfortable way for me to start a vlog since that’s the thing people do these days. Playing the games gives something for my adoring public to watch instead of my face.

Yeah, I’m late to the party train with all of this but I kinda don’t care. Watch or not, it’s up to you. I’m still saving up the money for the tech to do this and for a PS4 (the release date for Silent Hills isn’t till next year! I have time!) so don’t count on it going up right away. But it’s coming!

I suppose the main reason for me to want to do this is because I enjoy watching others so much, I’d like to add my voice to the cacophony, as it were. I don’t plan for it to make any money or for me to be particularly good at it or for me to upload all the time (as you can see I don’t even update my regular blog very much), but I think it would be fun!

 

 

Random Video Thoughts

Thar be cussin so you were warned.

I am fucking obsessed with this game. I am willing to buy a PS4 for this game. Maybe I’ll turn into one of those YouTubers who record themselves playing because I can guarantee my reactions will be comedy gold. I spend most of this trailer in a fetal position hiding behind my hands.

Now all I have to do is calculate how much plasma I need to sell in order to afford the system…
