Cyberpunk 2077 | Tried

 OK, here's a game I tried, but that I put down after about 3 hours of gameplay (and one achievement).  It's Cyberpunk 2077!   I played this on my Xbox One.  Despite the early hate for the game, I didn't really find that many issues with the graphics of this game on the Xbox One. Sure, there was some clipping, but what can you expect?The setting of the game is "Night City,"

Mortal Kombat X | Done

Almost done with my backlog! Yay!  OK, this one I finished the main campaign around June 2023.  I had forgotten that Mortal Kombat 9, 10, and 11 were a trilogy,  so when I started this game I had an "oh yeaaaahhh" feeling as the story seemed to be picking up from where it left off (or at least that was what I thought was happening...)Anyway, from a story plot perspective, here's what

Hivebusters | Done

Right after Gears 5, I jumped into the expansion game, titled Hivebusters.  This felt like a short game, but it was rather enjoyable! This one was also completed in  August 2022, and I think it took about 3-5 hours to complete.The game introduces a new squad,brings back some retired characters from past installments of the game (like Col. Hoffman), and a new location with a tropical island

Gears 5 | Done

Here's another review for a game that I finished in August 2022... so a little while ago 😂. Let's see what I remember from this (and the notes from my stub).  Gears of War 5 (Or just "Gears," apparently...) is the second game in a new trilogy?  It's a continuation of Gears of War 4, and it still follows the same group of Kait, JD, and Del (and their robot Jack) on new adventures.

Doom Patrol Finale

One more finale to catch up and give my 2c (not that anyone cares 😎) before 2023 gets out the door! This year saw the end of one more DC television show.  I have the sense that the DCTVU is another casualty of the WB/HBO changes that happened this year.One thing that really "broke" this last season was the idiotic break between the first 5 (or so) episodes of the season and the second part

Fear The Walking Dead Finale

[spoiler alert] Adieu to the most disjointed part of the Walking Dead Universe!OK, I don't hate the series, but I generally thought - multiple times - "WTF is going on?"  I honestly felt that they tried to introduce a lot of different kinds of stories and plots, in a way that was, perhaps, more like an anthology series, but the main characters remained the same. I did get the sense that the writers

Invasion (2021) quick thoughts

Well, here's another Invasion.  This time this is on Apple+ and Earth is being invaded by beings unknown.  This one is a  much more overt invasion compared to the other Invasion show that was replacing humans with human-alien hybrids. There are two seasons out now on Apple+ and from the hate you might see on Reddit, you might think that this show stinks.  It is a slow burn, and

Moonhaven - Quick look

Continuing on with my Sci-Fi binge... this is a small review of a short-lived series from 2002 called Moonhaven.  The story starts similarly to other dystopian sci-fi stories: "Congrats Lads! We've f*cked up the earth and we need solutions!"The new twist on this old trope is that the Earthers built a 500-square-mile colony on the Moon that a bunch of settlers from Earth colonized. Rather than

Division 2 | Done

Here's a game that I "completed" back on 9/30/23I enjoyed the first Division game that I decided back in ...whenever (I really should track when I start a game)...to just go directly into the sequel.  This division game take place partly in Washington D.C.(main game), and partly in New York (Warlords of New York expansion).  I say that I "completed" it, in quotes, because the game is still

Invasion (2005) quick thoughts

[Spoilers] Continuing on in my quest to watch sci-fi shows that I missed on their first run, today here are some quick thoughts on Invasion (2005). The show is available for free on Tubi for those who want to see it, and it was originally on ABC.I guess this is one of those shows that was canceled a little bit before its time. It only had one season, and that season is very uneven in its pacing. I
