New MMO ‘Wildstar’ getting some serious attention, and deservedly so

I’m still trying to find the perfect MMO.

It’s been hard, frankly. So many great concepts to come out, all to fail to meet my standards.

Maybe my standards are too high. Or, maybe, they’re just not the right games for me.

I’ve spent a good bit of time with the upcoming MMO “Wildstar” and, fingers crossed, I think I may have found the one.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ exactly what I hoped for

I’m not big into comics, but I am a huge fan of super heroes.

While I didn’t get my fix through the books, I did grow up watching the various cartoon series based on Marvel characters, X-Men and Spider-Man, in particular.

These shows always held my attention in a big way, and I get that same feeling from seeing them come to life on the big screen.

Unfortunately, a couple of the more recent in the X-Men series have been a bit disappointing, in my opinion. I enjoyed “X-Men: First Class,” but it just didn’t feel as epic as the previous in the series (not counting “X-Men: The Last Stand”).

The latest release, “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” isn’t like that at all.

Deadpool gets his own HeroClix set, and we break it open

I only recently started playing HeroClix.

I find it a bit funny that, just after I start playing, one of my favorite characters from all superhero universes gets his own set.

Of course, I had to get as many as them as possible, much like with my Street Fighter set, which led to a friend and I purchasing a brick of booster packs. (In HeroClix land, a “brick” is a pack of 10 boosters, each containing five random figures. A “crate” is two bricks.)

Since we went in on it together, it was only fair that we open it together, which had to, of course, be recorded.

‘Project X Zone’ is a delightful collision of worlds

When I first heard about “Project X Zone,” I couldn’t help but think of what a strange combination of cast it featured.

Street Fighter” and “Shining Force?” “Resident Evil” and “Xenosaga?” “Resonance of Fate” and “.hack?”

Why would somebody combine the Capcom, Sega and NAMCO Bandai universes into a single game? And how would it work?

It is a strange world, but it all kind of works. Of course, interdimensional beings are involved, tearing holes in the various universes and causing all kinds of crossover.
