Oh I thought we were still doing bad jokes. I guess you could say the assassin's movies are a bad joke also

So... I love me some wacky assassin movies, ala Smoking Aces, Polar (new Netflix Movie), and plan on watching Bad Times at the El Royale a little later today.  Any other suggestions?

 

 

I've played more games over the past two weeks while dealing with crazy panic attacks than I did all of last year.  Feels good to be back

 

I love movies like these. Crank and Crank 2 are both good ones in the same kind of genre. Shoot'em Up is also really cheesy and good. That one is on Crackle to watch for free. Close on Netflix, Deadpool, Kingsman, Kill Bill, Taken and Lucy are all good. Lockout is decent too and I second John Wick, Mad Max and Equalizer. I would be curious to hear thoughts on Equalizer 2 and Bad Times at the El Royale because I haven't seen them yet.

Realistically that Castlevania collection will at best include some combination of the NES trilogy, Super Castlevania IV, Rondo of Blood, and Symphony of the Night. Personally I'd like to see some of the GBA and DS games, specifically Order of Ecclesia, but I doubt it because of the low res of the GBA and two screens of the DS.

 

I'm shocked at how much praise Harmony of Despair is getting here, it generally wasn't all that well liked as far as I was aware.

The Sega Genesis Castlevania game was completely underrated. Would love to see it on a collection with the 8bit and 16bit Castlevanias.

Harmony of Despair was pretty good I thought, it's just not a traditional Castlevania game, but definitely had me on the "loot treadmill" for a bit. It was great for the early days of Xbox Live Arcade, jump in with 5 other people online and go on a boss rush.

Yes!!! Shoot'em up!  Loved that when I first saw it back in the day.  Plus, ya know... Monica Bellucci.  This is gonna south blasphemous, but I've never seen Mad Max.  Watched Pet Cemetary 1 and 2 a few days ago... those movies are TERRIBLE now.  Funny how nostalgia had me naming those movies as classics before.

 

 

Game related... crazy sale on the MS store for physical games right now.  Notably, South Park FBW 7.99, Steep Winter Games Edition 9.99, The Surge 9.99, WWE 2k19 is 14.99, but showing out of stock now

A pretty damn great price for everything you get with Destiny 2 Forsaken!

METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE shows free on this page, but doesn't appear to be free on this page yet.

 

EDIT - Just purchased for free, even though the product page still shows $19.99.

Super salty about this MS Store sale on discs. Some super good prices.

 

For a company that is pushing digital and a streaming only Xbox, they should be giving us those prices digitally. I'd drop $50 right now if those prices were on Xbox Live.

Typically the store price for the digital version is the same as the physical version (if they sell it), so it might be worth checking.  I'm all in for SP:TFBH (digitally) at that price.

I hope it means Maya is playable again, I usually play a Siren in Borderlands. One thing I'm wanting is more than 4 characters at launch. Hoping to see some of the Tales from the Borderlands characters too.

True.  I think I subconsciously skipped past that one because the cover reminded me of the cover for the first Destiny

 

 

 

 

 

Anyone down to team up in Division 2 tonight?  GT is Biggquis78

 

edit:  Wish I could use the same agent design I used for D1 by default

If the gearbox tweets ends up being borderlands collection for switch I'm going to be disappointed. It likely will be a borderlands remaster, and not borderlands 3.

The Gray Fox beat me to suggesting John Wick and Leon the Professional.

 

Boondock Saints is always a go to, but I didn't car for the second movie

 

Wanted surprised me with it's over the top wacky fun and I enjoyed it

 

Equalizer 2 was good, but way more serious

 

For something a little different try The Blind Swordsman: Zatoichi (2003)

Although I have a couple of copies of Symphony of the Night, I’d buy it again if it was bundled with the DS games.

Yeah, I just don't see it happening since it would take actual work to convert those games. The Requiem thing on PS4 was pretty bare bones, basically modified PSP emulation.

Thinking of picking up Far Cry 3, Mass Effect 1+2, and Fable 2 from GS's 4 for $10 sale.

 

Is it okay if I start with Mass Effect 2? Or should I start with ME1?

 

I highly recommend starting with ME1 since the trilogy is essentially one giant storyline.

 

Any thoughts on the Vizio P55-F1 or Samsung NU800D? My nearly 8 year old Panasonic plasma finally died this morning.

 

The Vizio should be significantly better since it has FALD (full array local dimming) and a few other features.  See rtings.

 

So... I love me some wacky assassin movies, ala Smoking Aces, Polar (new Netflix Movie), and plan on watching Bad Times at the El Royale a little later today.  Any other suggestions?

Wacky assassin movies: Try Grosse Pointe Blank and Mr. and Mrs. Smith.
