Geeky stuff that’s game-related.

A NEW Captain Marvel Trailer

The comments are strange with this one, mostly about how monotone her voice is and how “stonefaced” she is, but like some have said, it’s just bits in a trailer, so we don’t really know how she is in the rest of the movie.

Captain Marvel Trailer Drops

It’s the day a lot of people have been waiting for, the day the Captain Marvel trailer drops onto the Internet for us all to drool over or wonder if it will turn out like TV’s Supergirl.

Into the Spider Verse First Look

Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse is something a little different. It’s not going to be your typical movie with the traditional Spider-Man everyone knows and loves. There isn’t only one Spider-Man…

[Cosplay] Adventure Time's Marceline

With Adventure Time: Finn and Jake’s Epic Quest launching on Steam recently, I thought it would be appropriate to feature someone from the game (and TV show, of course) and found someone cosplaying as Marceline.

[Cosplay] Kasumi – Dead or Alive

It’s been a while (again) since the last cosplay post, but it’s definitely coming back every Friday (as advertised on the MG Twitter background). Not just any cosplay, it will all be video game related and even indie games (I’ve actually seen Don’t Starve cosplay).

Ditch Your PS3.. for Just $100?

I have heard little praise for Microsoft’s Xbox One, so little that I can honestly not remember seeing someone say a good thing about it, although the games have had praise, the fact the console seems to crash often detracts from the quality of the games.I will admit to being pro-Xbox when the Xbox 360 was launched as I just didn’t like the PlayStation, specifically the controller (I still don’t like it), in fact, I didn’t own a PlayStation 2 until around 2010 and that was only because I started getting review copies of games for it. I only really wanted the PlayStation 3 because of its Blu-ray capabilities, but then PlayStation Plus was announced and BOY was that a game-changer. I had long been considering the worth of Xbox Live, I was literally getting nothing for it, just the ability to play online and have access to apps on the console. I very rarely played online, so I was just paying to access apps that I could do so for free on the PlayStation 3, so I let the...

MGaceman Plays – Goodbye Deponia Part 4

So I’m now up to part 4 of my Goodbye Deponia playthrough, I’ve been doing well to keep each session around 30 minutes as I’ve found that’s the length of time people are willing to watch for.

Let The Following Begin

I had a mass sort out on Twitter by putting people into lists, so that I can control what I see better, it also means I can follow back without being spammed constantly by tweets. I mostly only have two lists in view at the same time, the other two lists contain followers that aren’t particularly relevant to my interests, but are mutually following. I probably shouldn’t admit that here in the event someone reads this who are not in the two main lists (I think you could probably work it out if you know what I tweet about). Anyway, been playing more GTA Online today and saw the most obvious glitcher yet: There is NO way he got to level 1000 legitimately, in fact, I don’t think anyone over level 300 got there by playing the game properly. As for The Following, it’s back on TV and I’m just off to watch the first episode of season 2!

A Blog To the Past

Sundays are just too relaxing. Once I’d prepared the dinner and got it cooking, I didn’t have much chance to do a lot before it was cooked (only took about 45 minutes) and dished up. I had one of the bottles of beer I received from my Dad for my birthday and within a few hours, I felt tired. In those few hours I’d played some more Borderlands 2 and more specifically, the Mighty Morphin’ mission as given by Sir Hammerlock. Image courtesy of BL4UPUNKT I don’t think Sir Hammerlock realises just how difficult his missions can be, it’s not that easy trying to kill a Mutated Badass Varkid, although, once you find a strategy, it can be made a little easier. But then, it’s only like other missions which seem to take longer than they should to try and eke out the gameplay.

Making Wilhelm Scream

I’m at the point in Borderlands 2 where I have to go to the Tundra and face a crap-load of enemies before facing what is the first main boss of the game, Handsome Jack’s sidekick, Wilhelm. I’m not just rushing in though, I went to Dust to do side missions for Ellie and Loggins and I still have a couple of others (one of which includes going to the Tundra anyway) to help level up a bit and have a better chance at beating Wilhelm. I’ve also been trying to complete some of the challenges to get more Badass points, the main problem with those is that if you raise the stats too much on Health, when you exit vehicles, your health lowers to what it was before the boost. Just glad I finally rescued Ronald though, that mission went on forever…
