Cloak and Dagger Is Shaping Up To Be One of The Best Marvel TV Shows

Cloak and Dagger Is Shaping Up To Be One of The Best Marvel TV Shows

Relying less on action and more on teen angst, the Freeform Network series Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger are turning out to be one of the better comic book adaptations on the air. Instead of the tired and true formula of ‘get powers, fight crime’, Cloak and Dagger is taking it’s time to build the narrative of the lead characters. They both have demons they’re fighting as well and personal injustices that they each need to face… and they’ll only be able to face those injustices together. It’s slow but very satisfying.

Comic Book Pull List: June 20th

Comic Book Pull List: June 20th

Dan Slott’s Tony Stark: Iron Man was pretty good. A nice twist on Iron Man. Two books featuring. The Champions dropped. Both of them were pretty damn good.. adding a new member to the team. Dan Slott wraps up his 10 year run on The Amazing Spider-man with a touching character deconstruction of the wall-crawler. Snyder’s Justice League has me hooked. It feels like when Bendis first wrote The Avengers. Speaking of The Avengers, Jason Aaron’s run if off to a decent start. I wasn’t really feeling the line-up until this issue. I think it’s in part to Ed McGuinness’ pencils. And Butty The Vampire Slayer is back on Dark Horse Comics and opens season 12 with a time jump. Awesome. All-in-all, a decent pull-list this week.

#Playing State of Decay 2

#Playing State of Decay 2

Like the first one, State of Decay 2 has become a life-draining evil. Initially, I wasn’t a fan of the updated gameplay. I’ve played the initial game and all it’s DLC so much I just wanted a new skin and new maps for the game I loved. Expanded base maintenance, needing to have gas for your car, specialized character traits… it seemed like way too much functionality for a game I just wanted to kill zombies and loot houses. But after a week or so of focused playing, I’m realizing I LOVE THIS GAME. Being a person who loves 4X games, I love all the things you need to balance to survive. There’s nothing like building up a character for hours and then suffering the loss of watching them die at the hands of a juggernaut.

Mankind is poised midway between the gods and the beasts. That may have been true in Plotinus' time, but clearly, we have fallen quite a bit since then.

#Playing Endless Space 2

#Playing Endless Space 2

I’m a huge fan of 4x games. I’ve been playing Civilization IV and Masters of Orion for years now and been looking for space 4X that’s as deep as Civ IV. Being on a Mac means the picking have been slim. Luckily, Amplitude Studios brought one of the most beautiful space games I’ve ever seen to the Mac. Endless Space space 2 is MASSIVE and COMPLICATED. So complicated I’ve tried to start it but got so intimidated I ran back to Masters of Orion. But this game is so deep and rich and gorgeous, I’m determined to master it. After watching a ton of LETS PLAY videos on Youtube, I’m giving it another go. So I’ve deleted Masters and Civilization from my Mac and seriously giving Endless Space 2 ago. With all the add-ons and DLC out, this should keep me busy for years
