I was fortunate to participate in the Welcome Back Weekend for Elder Scrolls Online. I was invited to download the game and play because I had been in the beta test in 2013. The reason I didn’t stay are no longer relevant anymore. I am glad they gave me a chance to look at the game in a new light. A lot has changed since beta and from what I can see it was for the better that those changes were made. So many changes that I can’t wait to play again, even with me having to use the WASD keys, yuck!

Even though I had a great time with the event there were a few hiccups along the way. The download was over 35 gigabytes and on a high speed instead of broadband connection it took me about 3 nights of downloading to get it all. So I was all set when the event started except when I tried to log in they have a computer verification system.

Turok: Evolution is the beginning of the Turok series. This game has a good story and a good gameplay. For graphics, not so great. The graphics looks like N64 games instead a PS2 game. I would think that it looked a little more like Morrowind graphics. The characters’ design looked really bad. They look muddy and low res.

The story in this game is pretty good. Tal’Set was sent to the lost land after his people were killed by a Ranger. In this game you are helping the humans fight the tyrannic army. So, it is like the first game, but before the first game. The gameplay runs like Morrowind, but you can’t switch to third person view. I like the gameplay in this game better than the graphics. You can fly in this game. The flying gameplay runs like Star Wars: Rogue Squadron. The AI are sometimes are little buggy. The enemies in this game are sometimes are little stupid, but that’s not so bad. The game slows down sometimes.

Saints Row: Gat out of Hell is an expansion pack for Saints Row 4. This game isn’t good as Saints Row 4 was. The storyline is boring and little too Disney. The game is about your main character from Saints Row series, getting dragged from Hell and getting married to the Devil’s daughter named Jezebel.

Now Gat and Kinzie have to rescue your main character from Hell. So, this game is like The Little Mermaid in Hell. When I watched one of the cutscenes, people are started to sing. I was saying to myself, “This is Saints Row! Not Disney.” Well, in this game you’re killing souls instead of people. There are not many things you can do in this game. You just piss off the Devil and that’s it.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is actually really good. This game is a fighting game, but the story is more entertaining. The story is about how Superman lost his family in Metropolis when Joker blew up the city. Batman was trying to get the informant from, but Superman didn’t care. He wanted revenge. So Superman ripped out the Joker’s heart.

The Iron Giant: It came from outer space!

The-Iron-Giant-1999-Cover-ArtThere were many great animated films in the 1990s, but this has to be one of the best. Set during the Cold War, at the time of the launch of Sputnik and rampant McCarthyism, there was much for Americans to fear, especially things that came from unknown sources. In the winter of 1957, one great mystery came to a small town in Maine. Where it came from, we do not know, but this hulking robot had the capacity to learn from one young boy, Hogarth Hughes, about life and death, compassion and fear, and so much more.

Hogarth is a pretty self-sufficient kid. His widowed mother works at a local diner as a waitress, and is often asked to work extra shift. His late father was a test pilot in the Air Force, so science is always on Hogarth’s mind, but when a giant robot falls from the sky one night when Hogarth is watching scary movies by himself, he has to go investigate. He grabs his BB gun, but what he encounters is far beyond belief. After some misadventures, Hogarth and the Iron Giant become friends, and with the help of a local beatnik artist, they keep the secret from the town until a government agent shows up.
