Dead Rising: Endgame Review

Dead Rising: Endgame Review

In an effort to move more firmly into the zombie mainstream, Dead Rising: Endgame, the sequel to 2015’s Dead Rising: Watchtower, leaves behind many of the beloved gimmicks that make its video game namesake so popular with fans. While Endgame succeeds in achieving a more grounded approach to the well-worn zombie genre, it unfortunately does so at the cost of any sense of fun. The second Crackle-distributed adaptation of the Dead Rising Xbox game franchise (the next installment of which may actually be coming to PS4), Endgame picks up shortly after the events of Watchtower. The first film followed online journalist Chase Carter (Jesse Metcalfe) as he sneaked into, and eventually back out of, the zombie-infested city of East Mission, Oregon. When Endgame begins, Chase has returned to once again trespass his way into the most poorly guarded military quarantine in history. He and his intrepid crew are there to spy on some kind of shady black ops, the details of which are never made clear. They witness some murderous skullduggery and wind up in the crosshairs of the villainous General Lyons (Dennis Haysbert). Haysbert gets a more well-rounded role here than he did in Watchtower and, like series newcomer Billy Zane, his character even occasionally delves into more or less reasonable justifications for his abhorrent behavior. That’s not to say dialogue is Endgame’s strong point, but Haysbert’s sermons go a long way toward making the series’ big bad three-dimensional. Continue reading…

Wrestling Wrap Up: Ambrose Wins Big at Money in the Bank

Wrestling Wrap Up: Ambrose Wins Big at Money in the Bank

Gotta say, I really enjoyed this week’s wrestling product. From Lucha Underground’s all-episode “Six to Survive” match to NXT to Money in the Bank to RAW, there’s was much enjoyment. Very wrestling. So slobberknocker. A little quick bit about TNA right here at the start though, as I was planning on making this week’s Impact Wrestling the first I’d watched in months. It was following a PPV and it was an episode focused all on the champs defending their titles and that seemed like a good place to pick things up, eyeball-wise. I never got around to watching what I DVR’d though because, apparently, there were major glitches with POP! and they just wound up running the same That ’70s Show commercial for two solid hours on a loop with little flashes of Bobby Lashley in between.

Justice League: 9 New Things We Learned on Set

Justice League: 9 New Things We Learned on Set

I visited the Leavesden set of Justice League last Friday, during which time the invited press interviewed Batman star Ben Affleck, saw Batman’s new vehicles and costume, found out who Willem Dafoe is playing, learned Justice League is not a two-part film after all, and even saw some scenes from the DC movie. But that wasn’t all we found out while there.

Why Bayonetta and God of War Fans Might Love Nier: Automata

Why Bayonetta and God of War Fans Might Love Nier: Automata

What do you do when your planet is overrun by aliens and their murderous robot minions? Escape to the moon, of course. So explained game designer Takahisa Taura when asked about the conspicuous absence of humans in Nier: Automata during a hands-on demo at E3 last week. Unable to deal with overwhelming odds, most homo sapiens have left the fight for Earth to androids created specifically to take on the extraterrestrials’ “bio-machines.” It’s a fight to the death, and from what I’ve experienced of Automata’s combat so far, it’s going to be epic. During the demo I controlled 2B–one of Automata’s main android protagonists–as she took on hordes of mechanical enemies. 2B’s bot-destroying arsenal includes a short sword, a great sword, a pair of massive gauntlets (think the Nemean Cestus from God of War), and a companion pod that hovers above her and acts as both a gun turret and temporary zipline. Each of these upgradable battle instruments is assigned a face or shoulder button, making interchanging them a breeze. As I gleefully smashed, slashed, shot, and dodged my way through wave after wave of malicious automatons, I was happily reminded of both the frantic, fluid combat of Bayonetta (hardly surprising given that Platinum Games is involved in both titles), and the cathartic, arcady button-mashing of God of War. There was an immensely satisfying rhythm to demolishing swarms of robots, but that doesn’t mean I could just turn off my brain.  Each type of enemy has its own unique properties, and I had stay on my toes and change up tactics if I wanted to stay one step ahead of overwhelming odds.

Justice League: Batman's 2 New Vehicles and Costume

Justice League: Batman's 2 New Vehicles and Costume

Batman will have two new vehicles to travel around in and fight Parademons with in next year’s Justice League. (Some small SPOILERS ahead.) I visited the Leavesden set of the Zack Snyder-directed DC movie last Friday, during which time production designer Patrick Tatopoulos took the invited press on a tour of the sets to show off Batman’s new rides. One new Bat-vehicle is the Night Crawler (or, simply, the Crawler), a four-legged vehicle designed to travel through tunnels and scale walls. It has a narrow cockpit, which Batman operates almost like a forklift driver, and four spider-like legs that can puncture through concrete allowing him to scale or break through walls. It also has weaponry, including flamethrowers for toasting Parademons (as we saw in concept art in the production war room). The overall vibe reminded me of those DARPA robot dogs, but big enough to carry a few people and with more insect-like legs. Continue reading…
