Xbox One Review – Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel

Dead Rising 3: Fallen Angel is the second single-player campaign DLC released for Dead Rising 3 and unfortunately, it follows the exact same structure set down in the first installment, Operation Broken Eagle by essentially changing the character model but utilizing the same maps with a series of similar fetch quests.  If you want more Dead Rising 3 it might be a better and certainly cheaper idea just to replay the main game over and over again.

Movie Trailer – Godzilla (2014)

Here is the official full trailer for the upcoming Godzilla movie due to open in Canada/USA on May 16.  I have to say that the marketing team has done a great job establishing an eerie, almost horror-film inspired tone with this trailer and the previous teaser that really accentuates the drama.

Xbox One Review – Dead Rising 3: Operation Broken Eagle

Dead Rising 3 might not have been the prettiest next-gen launch title but its easily accessible zombie-killing gameplay made it one of the most fun single-player or co-op experiences on either the Xbox One or Playstation 4.  Just like any regular modern video game release, Dead Rising 3 has DLC content this time in the form of four individual packs, each one focusing on a new central protagonist.  Dubbed the, “Untold Stories of Los Perdidos,” each piece of DLC is designed to feature new characters whose stories somehow intertwine with the game’s main hero, Nick Ramos.

Movie Trailer – Guardians of The Galaxy (2014)

Here’s the first trailer for what is shaping up to be a very interesting potential summer blockbuster namely, Guardians of the Galaxy from Disney/Marvel.  Unlike most other superhero movies opening this year such as Captain America: The Winter Soldier or X-Men: Days of Future Past,  Guardians of the Galaxy is obviously not a sequel to an existing property and needs to sell itself to fickle summer movie fans.

Movie Review – The Lego Movie (2014)

After a completely dismal January the release of The Lego Movie represents a breath of fresh air, easily claiming the moniker of the best movie of the New Year.  With a highly charged blistering pace and more jokes crammed into every frame than one can count, the movie clearly flies on sheer audaciousness by utilizing nearly every action/adventure trope imaginable and then proceeding to turn them on their heads.  Directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller have crafted an almost drug-inducing visual chaos with vivid bright colours seemingly slamming viewers in the face at every turn but they also manage to properly lace the narrative with some seriously emotional subtext.
