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.

Gears of War 4 | Done

Completed July 2022Why yes! It did take a while for me to write a little something about this game 😂. It's been in my drafts folder since July 2022 and over the holidays I've been going through my drafts to see what I can write about, and what I can just let go.  Since I like the Gears franchise, I thought I'd add my 2c about this game.Just to set the scene, Gears of War 4 takes place 25 years

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

TV - Ghosts (CBS & BBC)

OK, so here's a series to watch if you have yet to see it. It's an American adaptation of a British series of the same name.  I am not always a fan of adaptations, but sometimes the adaptation is on par and even better than the British Original.  I like both versions, but the American version has more episodes available. British seasons only have 6 episodes per season, or 7 if there's a Christmas

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

Καλά Χριστούγεννα και Καλές Γιορτές!

 Καλά Χριστούγεννα, καλές γιορτές, και με το καλό να υποδεχτούμε το 2024!Λίγες μέρες έμειναν πιά στο 2023.  Αυτός ο χρόνος πέρασε πολύ γρήγορα. Είχε τα πάνω του, είχε και τα κάτω του, και με όλη την βαβούρα δεν κατάλαβα πότε

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

Deus Ex: Human Revolution | Done

 Here's the most recently finished game: Deux Ex: Human Revolution.   I finished this game on November 4, 2023.  I'm trying a new tactic and writing about games now in a more recent order (i.e., writing about the ones I finished most recently) to see if I catch up on my blogging topic backlog - 😂Anyway, I had started this game back in my Xbox 360 days about ten years ago.
