007: Agent Under Fire is a good game for the PS2. This game is the first Bond game for PS2 and this game uses the Quake III engine. There 3 problems with this game. #1 is Bond himself, #2 is the controls, and #3 is the fact of the sound of the game.
The first problem was Bond isn’t like the other ones from the movies. This one looks like he came out of one the Superman and he doesn’t sound like Bond himself. When you play the game, he looks Superman without his powers. I don’t know this voice actor, but he does did a okay job for Bond. Problem #2 is the controls run like the Bond game from the N64. I don’t know why EA had to put old controls on this game. For N64 yes, but for PS2, no. You can change the controls in this game. I had found the controls that look like those from Halo. So, I used it instead, and it helped. Now for problem #3. Problem #3 is the fact if you do something cool, you get to hear the theme song over and over again. It was really annoying. I didn’t turn it off, but you deal with it. Read more...(559 words, 31 images, estimated 2:14 mins reading time)
Dead or Alive 4 for the XBOX 360 was a great game when it was first out. You got more time to play the game instead buying DLC’s, but in this game there are no DLC’s at all. You have to work hard to unlock some of the characters, all of the outfits, and getting the endings.
This game was one best fighting of the games of all time and it was more challenging than other fighting games out there. I had a hard time unlocking characters and there outfits, and which I am still trying to do. I have already unlocked the characters, but trying to get their outfits. This game has 6 modes. Story Mode, Versus, Team Battle, Time Attack, Survival, and Online. I never played online on this and I don’t think it is available any more.

The great thing about anime is that it is a limitless genre, and just about anything can happen in it. Anywhere, any time, past, future, parallel worlds, contemporary pop culture, you name it. Oddly, considering the title of this series, you would expect a tale about the Greek gods and their enemies and ancestors, but this has nothing to do with ancient history. Attack on Titan is set in a dystopian future about 2000 years from now. The technology has devolved back to steampunk tech, and things look pretty much like they did in the mid 19th century. Right there the similarities stop. This world is nothing like ours is, because there is a new, bold enemy against humanity, and they make any of history’s megalomaniacs look like bully kids on the playground.

This is one of the finer movies that I have seen to depict both dystopia and utopia all in the same film. You have both young and old, representing both and you see what happens when you feed the wrong wolf. That is something from the movie. It is making the point that is you feed the negative, all you will get is the negative but if you have a positive outlook then anything is possible, allowing you to see your dreams come true.
I found that the acting was both fun and frivolous and just a joy to watch. It has a high caliber cast and just with most Disney films a rollercoaster of highs and lows that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Since the film has already been reviewed by my wife, link below, I will not get into the specifics of the film right here. What I will tell you is that after watching this film you will want to watch it again. It is a film that the whole family can enjoy over and over again.

This great family movie is a wonderful wake-up call, and an amazing adventure rolled up into one somewhat confusing journey. It starts with a short cartoon about history and progress, and how everything man creates to better his world usually ends up getting to destroy it. Then we discover there is a secret place where artists and engineers can work together without government intervention to make the world a brighter, cleaner, and healthier place. A place that does not fear science or art, and when one tries to take in a bit of culture, they do not be berated and told to remember their place. This place was design by four of the most brilliant men of the 19th Century. Tomas Edison, Nikolai Tesla, Jules Verne, and Gustave Eiffel. The cartoon ends, and our story starts where we see Frank Walker (George Clooney) in the process of recording some sort of video about an upcoming doomsday. We hear the the voice of a young woman criticizing his words, offering up suggestions on other ways he might want to get the message across. He decides to tell his story from where it all began for him. Frank was an very young, aspiring inventor on his way to the 1964 World’s Fair. Most likely one of the most futuristic expos at the time. The set looks like something right out of The Jetsons, but this expo was a real place, and it was done during a time when the Space Age was at its height, and the sky was no longer the limit.
