Mighty Muggs

Mighty Muggs

Does anyone else still collect them?  I do believe the line has been canceled though I may be wrong.

Vikor!

Vikor

Mattel recently released Vikor, the predessor to He-Man.  For those that don’t know the back story to He-Man and the Master’s of the Universe series – the most promiment run is that the series was supposed to be originally for the Conan the Barbarian movie, to be its line of toys.

Before the concept of the toys were changed we get Vikor as the predecessor for He-Man. I received mine off of eBay as the sale from Mattel started later than I expected on its release date and I could not get to a computer.

Dan Con 2011

Yesterday we had a blast at the first annual Dan Con, which was a lot of fun.  All of it a good prelude for the upcoming C2E2 (Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo) starting on March 18th, 2011.  My son was going to go dressed in his full Darth Vader getup but last minute decided on the odd pairing of Wolverine with a Super Mario Bros backpack.  He made the Southtown Star, a subsidiary of the Chicago Sun-Times:

Dan Con 2011

Which brings us to the ‘of course already watched by the entire planet’ marketing gem from Volkswagen:

And its obligatory blooper reel:

Bioshock Infinite

Many have played Bioshock 1 & 2.  Many do not know that Bioshock 2 was mostly outsourced from the original team and that is why it just wasn’t anywhere near as good as the first.

I feel they ruined it more by focusing so much on the multi-player.  Maybe it’s just me but I believe some games should just be left alone as stand-alone/single-player games and not forced down the multi-player cube just for the sake of being able to say it “also has multi-player!”

Enough of the rant.. the latest installment in the Bioshock series is titled ‘Infinite’ and I am happy to report it is from the same team as the original Bioshock.  The release date is not even know yet, but the year slated is for sometime in 2012.

Below are two videos – the first one being the original trailer.  And the second being a near 10 minute play-through, enjoy:

Dragon Age 2 | Extended Trailer

March 8th is soon approaching and with it comes the long awaited follow-up to Dragon Age Origins.  RPG fans everywhere where stunned by it because they did not expect it to be as good as it ways.  Then the Awakenings expansion came which added to the experience but did not add much more in terms of innovation or changes.  Now we await part 2 in hopes it will satisfy the fan base.
