Game of Predictions – Season 7

Good day one and all! I, Kenny “The White Bear” Cortina here waiting ever so patiently for season 7 of Game Of Thrones! Bitter sweet knowing that the season that follows this one will indeed be the finale. But until then, we shall revel in the fact that WINTER IS HERE. And with that, brings rumors and hopeful predictions. If you read my predictions last yea; Game of Rumors, you’ll know that my prophecies held true…for the most part.

Sidenote: THE KINGSMOOT SHOULD HAVE LASTED LONGER THAN 15 FUCKING MINUTES!

Now that it’s out of my system, I’ve decided to make my predictions for this upcoming season bolder. And with that, here are my fan-finatic guesses: Continue reading

Delayed Review – Logan

So I know I’m super later in the game but I JUST saw Logan on July 4th. While I have always loved Wolverine as a character and also thoroughly enjoy Hugh Jackman as Logan, this movie wasn’t necessarily in my MUST WATCH NOW list. I am indeed a Marvel fan girl (I’m sure most of you know that by now) but we know this movie is Marvel but not really Marvel. Continue reading

The Witcher – Done, Done & DONE!

The scared man with the white hair scans the notice board in the center of town. He looks at one a bit closer, then pulls it off old wooden block and walks to a hut near the edge of the settlement. He questions the woman, who tells him about the beast that has been attacking her livestock the last several weeks. The man climbs on his horse and rides out toward where the woman normally tends to her flock and investigates the remains of a cow that has been ripped asunder. He analyzes the claw marks, notes the dried spittle on the throat of the cow and the feathers left strewn about the area.

“Griffon,” says the white-haired man to himself. “No doubt about it.” Continue reading

Nintendo Switch – Game ON or OFF? By Panda

After so many rumors, we finally have received the BIG confirmation—Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is DEFINITELY coming this year! No more delays! With that out of the way, let’s get to this blog’s main topic.

At the end of 2016, Nintendo released a teaser trailer revealing what the Switch, the company’s latest gaming console, would look like, its controls and some gameplay with some new games teased as well. On Friday, Jan. 12, the company held a live stream event with more details of how everything will work, what it will include, a release date and most importantly the price tag.

Naturally, I’m here to tell you what you want and need to know. However, I will not talk about the presentation itself. However, if you really want to know here’s a brief description:

  • They had bad translators.

  • An unenthusiastic crowd.
  • Mediocre at best.
