Assassin's Creed Origins: Launch trailer

Even though I am 3 games behind in this series (and a whole generation of consoles behind), I am looking forward to eventually playing this game :-).  I wonder if we see aliens come down and land/crashland on earth in ancient Egyptian times, or if we're dealing with the the fallout of discovering the ancient artifacts at this period in history :)

The launch trailer for the next Wolfenstein game, a game that picks up where the previous game left off - with a Nazi occupied american continent, is now available.  So many games to play once I am done with my dissertation ;-).  Make American Nazi-Free Again!

Street Fighter V arcade trailer

It's hard to believe that it's been 30 years since Street Fighter was originally released... I am also surprised that there is no Xbox One release for the game.  I guess I will be playing it on Steam...(at some point in the way way way future)

New Discovery trailer

This one is from the recent San Diego comic con, for the upcoming Star Trek series.  It seems interesting.  While I do like Star Trek, and I will watch the broadcast pilot, I don't know if I am a hardcore-enough fan to shell out money for All Access.  Just put it on Netflix and Hulu and be done with it :p.  Looking at some of the consume designs, they seem pretty interesting, but

Έρχεται το Ready Player One!

Κάπου είχα ακούσει πως το επώνυμο βιβλίο θα γυριζόταν σε ταινία, αλλά βασικά το είχα ξεχάσει. Με το comicon στο Σαν Ντιέγκο την περασμένη εβδομάδα είδαμε και το trailer λοιπόν αυτής της ταινίας. Το trailer, αν δεν έχεις διαβάσει το μυθιστόρημα,

Metroid: Samus Returns

One of the games I forgot to look for a trailer for last week was Metroid: Samus Returns, which is a modern version of Metroid II which came out in 1992 (25 years ago!!!) for the original GameBoy.  A good friend of mine had this game (and had beat it).  As was common back then, we traded game cartridges and I tried to beat this game by starting at the beginning, but I found it frustrating.

New from Nintendo at E3 2017

Some really nice looking games announced by Nintendo at E3 yesterday.  Some on the switch, some on the 3DS.  I like the concept of the switch, but I can't really justify getting one considering that most of what I want to play is on the xbox one...Super Mario Odyssey trailer: Yoshi Trailer: Kirby Trailer:

Crackdown 3

I love Terry Crews ;-)  Now all this game needs is a Jake Peralta recruit haha.I wonder if I need an Xbox One X to run this.  I seriously don't see a reason to buy an xbox one X over an xbox one S given my own gaming habits.

Assassin's Creed Origins

Yesterday, at this year's E3 conference, we got new of the next Assassin's Creed.  I guess the rumors (or wild wishes?) from some fans came true:  Old Egypt (looks like Roman times) is now the setting of the next game which will chronicle the beginning of the brotherhood.  Can't wait!  Wonder if it will have an Ancient Aliens vibe ;-)

Castlevania - the TV Series!

It seems like Netflix  has a Belmont up its sleeve!  Soon (I hope) an anime-style Castlevania series will be hitting Netflix.  I think that this teaser trailer is well done (hope the series is well done too!).  I wonder how they will tackle the lore...

Star Trek First Frontier trailer

I came across this trailer for a fan film which seems to be following the Enterprise's first captain, Robert April.  Looks interesting and well made.  Wonder what the final one episode will look like :-)

Mass Effect Andromeda: Trailer 2

The renegades are coming!

It's been about a year since the premier episode of Renegades (formerly Star Trek: Renegades), but the new one is coming out in a couple of weeks.  The series has gone a transformation from something set in the Star Trek universe to being its own thing, thanks to certain lawsuits over fan films... I am curious to see how things tie together, or if this will be just a reboot of the fan series

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare trailer

A new call of duty game is coming out soon! (well it might be out, but without a current generation console I can't play it yet).  This trailer looks good, and it appears to tackle the topic of alien invasion of earth :)  I wonder if it keeps within the continuity of the previous CoD games I've played...

Here's the new ship --> NCC 1031

The ship for the upcoming Star Trek TV series (Star Trek Discovery) has been announced at comic con this year!  Given its ship registry (NCC 1031) it seems like this series will be taking place before the original series.  Wonder if we're going to be seeing the beginnings of Captain April...The ship, the Discovery, seems a little reminiscent of the ship designs for Phase II - the Star Trek

Agents of Yesterday official trailer

I was not convinced that I would be starting up a new character for this expansion, but after this trailer I am pumped!  I may just create a new UFP character, do the faction specific missions, and then just use DOFF missions to level up to level 60.  I might even skip most missions that I've done (at least) 4 times already. I guess this character falls into the tertiary category because

Star Trek Bridge Crew - pretty cool!

I was not expecting a game like this from UbiSoft (and, what the heck? is this blog turning into star trek all the time?!).  In any case,  this game seems quite interesting in terms of what it does with virtual reality.  Also seeing Star Trek Alumni getting into the game and seeing their enthusiasm about this is pretty infectious ;-)I tend to be more of a solo player, even within MMOs

Titanfall 2 trailer

Another interesting game coming out soon. I have the original TitanFall in my collection of games that I have yet to play, but the trailer makes it look promising ;-)  Maybe once I am done with Bully on the xbox I'll pick up Titanfall.  I still have loads of time before I get an xbox one LOL. No rush.

Star Trek Beyond: trailer 2

Now THIS trailer looks way better than the first one!  Of course the main question in my mind is this:  If the Enterprise gets destroyed in this one, what will the NCC 1701-A look like? ;-) And, will it come with new uniforms, sort of like Wrath of Khan, or will they go in an alternative direction?  Imagine if they went sort of like the uniforms that they (almost) used in Star Trek:

Ghostbusters 2016 trailer looks great! :)

I had my doubts about the New Ghostbusters film (mostly because I thought they were going with the old ghostbusters just rehashed), but this seems like it's going to be a really good film picking up from where the original quartet left off!  Can't wait to see it :-)

Star Trek Beyond - first trailer

Well, the first trailer for Beyond is out... and it looks like Mission Impossible in Space.  It's not that it's bad.  I like the trailer - but it' just very generic looking.  It looks like a generic, space, action movie that just happens to have the Star Trek logos and crew in it.Maybe other trailers in the future will be more indicative of what the movie is actually about.

Woah! Independence Day: Ressurgence!

Just caught this on one of my facebook feeds - a trailer for the sequel to Independence Day.  This looks like a pretty fantastic sci-fi film (and I hope it's a great sequel).  I remember seeing the original in the theaters one of my first summers back from Greece :)I did notice a noticeable absence of Will Smith though...

Warcraft...the movie?

I came across this movie trailer the other day for a Warcaft movie.  I've never been much into World of Warcraft the MMORPG, I have an aversion to paying montly fees for playing games (which is why I like free-to-play games like Defiance).  The last time I played warcraft, it was WarCraft 2 on my Performa 635 and it looked like this:Watching the trailer I got vibes of Avatar and Lord of

Woot! Mass Effect 4 trailer!

Well, for N7 Day (November 7th), EA released a trailer for the new Mass Effect game, apparently titled Mass Effect: Andromeda.  It doesn't say much, but it does feature the voice of female Commander Sheppard.  I played as the male version on the first play-through, so the voice-over was a bit of a surprise.  Wonder what the game will bring!
