Mission Impossible Rogue Nation

Finally managed to catch this film. Found it a lot more...comedic than the previous films, which was strange since I always thought of Mission Impossible as a more serious type of spy film.

Pixels

Pixels is one of those movies I want to like, but seriously, there were just too many factors that screwed it over.

VS 2PCG

The new VS is out and I ended up queuing close to 2 hours for it during Gencon. It was that popular, but hey it's a comic book TCG.

Gencon 2015 #2


So Gencon has finished and it was a blast. Although, as usual I spent most of my time queuing up at various stands.

Gencon 2015 #1

Here I am again, at Gencon. And spending most of my time queuing up for stuff as usual. Thankfully, FFG has no new game coming out at the moment that I'm interested in and Privateer Press has implemented a system that is reminiscent of Disneylands fast-track queuing system, which has cut down on my queuing time significantly.

Ant-Man

This was a pretty entertaining movie at times but there were definitely parts that could have been improved.

Age of Sigmar

So I've had a demo game of Age of Sigmar recently and I can't say I'm too impressed.

Arkam Knight

So I've been playing a LOT of Arkham Knight on the PS4, and it's been pretty fun. Long time fans of the Arkham series SHOULD enjoy this barring a few parts of the game.

Minions

A surprisingly good film. I would actually say I enjoyed this more than both Jurassic World and Terminator Genisys. 

Friday, 26 June 2015

Terminator Genisys

Terminator Genisys feels like the franchises own 'Days of Future past', in which the slate is wiped clean. It's also kind of like the TV series, the Sarah Conner Chronicles in a way as well, with its multiple timelines.

Jurassic World

Jurassic World is a lot more like Japanese Godzilla than Jurassic Park, which is strange.

House Rules: Yay or Nay

Everyone has a few when it comes to playing RPGs or cooperative board games, but what about wargames? Should house rules be encouraged? Or discouraged? Warning, a bit of a rant in this one.

Spy

Spy is the type of movie where a hopeless clerk ends up becoming a field agent and somehow saves the day through sheer luck and undiscovered competence. There, I've told you everything about the plot of Spy. However, despite the cliche plot, there are moments of genuine hilarity in the movie.

Witcher 3

So I've been playing this for close to a week now and I just have this to say. This is good, really good.

Cthulhu Wars

Great miniatures but I'm a bit confused about the actual lack of 'war' in a game that calls itself Cthulhu Wars.

Xiaomi Mi Pad

So I've been using one of this for a while now. My verdict? The hardware is decent but the UI is horrible. Seriously, if you're going to buy this, root it and change the ROM version.

Amos Yee: The boy who cried Molest

There was once a boy who cried wolf just to see the reactions of the towns people. Amos Yee however takes it one step further and is now the boy who cried molest just to troll people.

Arcadia Quest

So I didn't back this on KS but I managed to pick this up while it was cheap on Amazon, with free shipping to Singapore. Pretty decent game that has some areas that could use improvement with.

Star Wars Armada

Okay, I need to STOP trying to learn a ruleset at a tournament and preferably, learn how to play it before a tournament.

Star Realms

So Star Realms is a deck building game that's been out since 2014 and which I only just got introduced to. Note, everything in this is based off of my opinion of the Core Set only.

Avengers 2: Age of Ultron


This was a pretty decent action flick but I'm not really blown away by it.

Video Game High School: The Board Game

A boardgame that's really about playing video games in a high school. Sounds like my kind of high school. And apparently based on a live action web series.

Iron Mother vs eLylyth


The dreaded eLylyth. Apparently she has a spell that grants her whole battlegroup stealth... *looks at Prime Axiom*

Cinderella 2015

Kinda felt like this really could have done with more singing in it. Is it weird that I associate most Disney Princess movies with singing now?

Mantis Storage Case Kickstarter


  Well, I didn't really want to have to write this but things aren't looking so great for this Kickstarter at the moment. So this was a Kickstarter that finalised during Aug 2014 and was supposed to ship out by Sep 2014. Unfortunately, it got too successful and as of now, most of the items still haven't shipped out. Sadly, delays are becoming all too common in the KS industry now and if that was all, I wouldn't be writing about this.

Kickstarter and Disgruntlement

Remember a few years back, when Kickstarter used to be the promised land? Where creators and consumers would get together in harmony and all would be right with the world, with both sides getting what they wanted? Well, just like any other vision, humanity has pretty much screwed that up.

Pillars of Eternity

If you're a fan of old-school RPGs; like Baldurs Gate 1-2, Planescape Torment, Icewind Dale etc, buy this game now.

Hoard of the Dragon Queen

Now that the first book has been finished, I think I can talk a bit about it. I can't really remember the last time I played through a campaign book so I'll probably end up comparing this to actual PC RPGs or JRPGs instead. Warning, spoilers. 

Friday, 20 March 2015

The Evolution of a PC: Lomeyo

So now that I've finished Hoard of the Dragon Queen, I feel that my character seems to have evolved quite a bit since the start of the campaign. Which is a good sign of course because it means the character is more than just a bunch of stats on a piece of paper.

Transfinite Emergence Projector

As PPs very first hard plastic kit, I felt this deserved its own post. The TEP is Privateer Press first styrene release and basically, everyone has been waiting for it since forever. Or at least Convergence players have.

pButcher vs Shae


Last match of my League. POW 5s kill. Also, I finally get to play pButcher.

D&D: The Tao of DMing

I've been in the seat many times and have been a player a lot more times. Anyone can be a DM, but being a good DM is an art.

Focus

Focus is a film; that ironically, has no focus.

Firestorm: Planetfall

So I just had my first game of Planetfall; using the 2 player starter box, and I honestly found it pretty good.

Dead of Winter

This game must be doing very well, because my LGS owner was telling me how he had ordered 20 since October last year but so far, he had only received 2. After playing it, I can sort of understand why.

Kingsman: The Secret Service

Probably the best movie I've seen this year and probably the last few months. This was an incredibly witty and charming movie, which somehow manages to include spectacular action scenes. How could I not like this?

Dropzone Commander 2 Player starter

So I've recently been getting into Dropzone commander; and as such I've bought the 2 player starter set that comes with 2 factions, the rulebooks and some map tiles and card terrain.

Kyou Kara Ore Wa

Kyou Kara Ore wa is what I would consider one of the classics of gag manga. How old is it? It was serialised in the 1980s and despite that, its brand of humor is still very relevant today.
