G.I.-Joe: Retaliation Trailer

Well yesterday Entertainment Tonight (and thankfully the internet somehow) showed off the premiere trailer for G.I.-Joe: Retaliation
which was  the only reason I was looking forward to Monday. XD
G.I.-Joe is Hasbro's popular military action figures (4inch and 12 icnh) and is the code name of America's highly trained mission force, it prupose is to defend human freedom against COBRA, a ruthless terrorist organization determined to rule the world! Now you know....and knowing is half the battle.                         The other half is watching the trailer and reading my thought's on it. ;) 
Well....It looks awesome to say the least.
 Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson rocks as the character: RoadBlock.
Ray Park looks even cooler as the stealthy ninja Snake Eye this time around since there aren't weird looking lips on his mask. The new additions to the cast also seem to be fitting into the scheme of thing well. 
Also....Cobra Commander! With silver faceplate! YES! Looks Frickkin Awesome!
Coooobra! <3

And the action looks like it's been kicked up a notch (or two) with fairly realistic military and ninja themes.

Though there is one thing I'd like to bring up

While this isn't exactly bad, I do feel a little deja-vu since the story seems quite similar to the recently canceled G.I.-Joe: Renegades cartoon. Though it seems like this will be a bit more of a mature and gritty (?) take on the story. Also...seeing the flag and banners of COBRA being put on the White House was really cool!
Looks like they took some things from the previous G.I.-Joe movie (Rise of Cobra), though I won't mention what since there may be those of you who want to see it (and unlike others, I didn't find it to be the worst thing ever but it wasn't great either. enjoyable then yes. Story...not so great.).
But what I will say is that they took from it was the good things and seems to have left the bad behind.

For now, all I can say is that I can not wait till June 29th 2012 for this movie to come out!
And the Action Figures too!

Yo Joe!!!!!

News: New Soul Calibur 5 Videos

Well as some of you might know, I am very excited for the latest installment of the popular weapon based fighting game series: Soul Calibur 5
And with only a month or two away til it's official release in the US (January 31st 2012), there has been plenty of new videos and info on what's to come like these two new videos below:

It might surprise you that Soul Calibur 4 was meant to be the last game in the series because the team behind it split up and went to work on other games. But thanks to fans of the series that clamored for a new and improved installment to the series be made. Namco listened and here we are. Now they plan to make up to at least Soul Calibur 9. XD
Anyway about the video, It seems to be trying to show what happened in SC4 and how it will lead into SC5 which I think is a nice touch since the game takes place 17 years after SC4.
I am hopeful that the story mode will be much better and actually have a story unlike SC4.
The graphics look quite nice for the cutscenes and that it looks really good so far.
Also Siegfriedis so awesome in this is Nightmare.
Thought I should mention that the music is epic. So glad I'm getting the soundtrack with my Collector's Edition. : )

Most info in this video won't be anything too new to fans that are keeping a close eye on things but it has it's gems and it's pretty good for someone who might not know much about Soul Calibur and possibly getting them interested.
Seeing a clip from story mode, shows how cool Patroclus (the son of Sophitia not "Sofeshea") is.
Also gameplay of Yoshi, Cervantes, Xiba (who seems to have a few of Seong Mi-na's moves), and Aeon Calcos (Formally Lizardman) was also shown.
Also it seems that there will possibly be two original movesets exclusive to custom characters that can be made. Ezio Auditore from Assassin's Creed makes an appearance as a guest character and fits in with the rest of the cast nearly flawlessly.

I can't help but think that the announcer of the video knows very little about the Soul Calibur series I believe since things like Nightmae's "Living Sword" (Soul Edge) seemed to surprise him and that the "graphics are as good as a FPS" (First Person Shooter).
Yeah...otherwise both are cool videos and I suggest you watch them if your interested in Soul Calibur 5.

Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 Minimates Review: Iron Man and Arthur

Hi there!
This here is my review of the newest Minimates that recently came out that are from the crossover fighting game: Marvel Vs. Capcom 3

Minimates are 2 inch Lego-like action figures that have 14 points of articulation, have interchangeable parts, and have various lines like Marvel, Ghost Busters, Halo, and more to choose from.

Anyway find out my thoughts on these minimates after the jump!
