At this past year Comic-Con, Marvel released it’s first trailer for it’s upcoming sequel to the less than desirable movie adaptation of Ghost Rider, entitled Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.
Now, to say the least, the first Ghost Rider wasn’t all that great, but I did enjoy it. Maybe it was Eva Mendes, maybe it’s because I’m one of a few people who like Nicolas Cage, I don’t know, but I liked the movie despite it’s complete neglect of the source material.
Anyway, despite the overall negative responses to the movie, a sequel is currently in the works and Marvel has released it’s first trailer showing the new movie’s dark, and gritty tone. Take a look at the trailer for yourself.
I personally liked the trailer. I hope it sets the tone for the movie itself. Just looking at the look of Ghost Rider sets the stage for the tone of the movie. As you could see, the Rider’s skull was darkened and charred from being set aflame numerous times, and you could see the his leather jacket and pants bubble and sizzle from the heat of his Hell Fire covered skeleton, which looked pretty cool to me. It’s being made by the same guys who made the Crank movies and by judging what was seen in the trailer, the action should be pretty intense, and by the looks of it, kinda violent as the Rider really doesn’t seem to show any remorse for his enemies and victims. So what’s your opinion of the new Ghost Rider movie? Think it’ll be better than the first?
Here’s the first official trailer for the upcoming sequel to THQ and Vigil Games’ generally unknown but well received game, Darksiders. For those of you who don’t know what the first game was about, check out my BusyGamer.com review of the game right here,
This game was a real surprise to me. It combined a lot of game aspects that I enjoy, and the sequel is looking pretty good if you ask me.
Here’s the first official trailer for Darksiders 2. Enjoy!
Sorry it’s been a while since my last post.
Here’s a little more info in regards to the game reviews I’m gonna start posting on my blog.
First of all: a scoring system.
Now, if you’ve read any game reviews on BusyGamer.com, you’ll notice that they score their games based on the quality of the game, as well as the amount of time it takes to complete the game or how time consuming the game is overall based on a 1-5 scoring scale. A game receiving the score of a 1 is a game that takes a lot of time to learn and play through, and a 5 is a game that is fairly easy to pick up and play through.
I’m gonna do things a little bit different. I’m going to use the same scoring scale, but I’ll be scoring the games based on the quality and fun of the game.
All in all, I’m pretty excited about doing this. Like I said in my announcement post, I’m gonna try to get at least one review posted a month, and like I said, I’m open for suggestions of what games to review for multiple systems.
Expect to see my first game review, which will be of L. A. Noire, by the end of next week.
What’s up guys?
Well, right now the video game world is kinda slow on news and releases so in order to keep my blog updated, I’m gonna start posting game reviews!!!
For those of you who don’t know, I usually write reviews for our friends BusyGamer.com, but why can’t I do both?
Now my goal is to post at least one game review a month. I’ll play a game throughout the month and try to post the review at the end of the month.
Now my primary system is the XBox 360 but I also have a Nintendo GameCube, Super NES and a NES. If there are any games that you want me to play through and review, let me know and I’ll try to get it done for ya!!
Expect to see my first review by the end of the month. It will be over L. A. Noire. I’ve talked about this game multiple times on the podcast and am very excited to write about it.
