My Gaming Diary: Gaming Interval 11606.64 - Project CARS (PC) -  Whoa!!! Major gamer's remorse! I so regret that I have taken so long to get around to playing this game, which has been hanging around in my backlog for some number of months. Superb graphics, and what seems like an incredibly excellent physics engine. It took me nearly an hour to get the tuning down for my Xbox 360 Controller between setting the deadzone and steering sensitivity. Hopefully it's all car tuning from here on out.

I love how you can elect to start in any racing league and style. Where other driving sims are coming up with these ridiculously convoluted and byzantine career modes, Project CARS just gives you a grid of tiles to select your particular racing poison and then cuts you lose. The tutorials are overly-chatty at the outset, but I figured out how to bypass them later in this session. This is definitely my new racing jam, I think, despite the fact that I have only seen SuperKART racing. The first 50 minutes of this video is learning curve. If you want to see gameplay around the time that I started to "get it", jump ahead to minute 50 for my pole position qualification run and first two podiums. I cannot wait to play some more of this!

My Gaming Diary for Friday, 22 January 2016: Homeworld - Deserts of Kharak - I wound up having a great opportunity to play and capture some gameplay from launch day for this game. While I had some problems getting a stream (thanks to YouTube which apparently ate the file after I ended the stream), the Elgato HD60 bailed me out by its excellent local capture. I had a lot of fun in this game, mainly due to my nostalgia for both the original Homeworld games as well as Ground Control. Deserts of Kharak definitely invokes the DNA of both of those franchises, given the fact that they were both developed by the same dev studio, Relic games. It's not a speed-of-light RTS with a ton of difficulty just for the sake of making it hard. But is that such a bad thing?

Two Guys, a Girl, and a Scene: Episode #9 – In My OWN Mind - What’s up, everybody?! Tonight it’s our Top 5 Guilty Pleasures with three of the editors from the Geeks World Wide Radio Network! Check out the thrills and spills and learn our most blackmailiest secrets as we pull back the curtain on the worst stuff that we love!

This episode is a bit long, but we had a lot of stuff to unpack on the way to the Top 5 List. Including Ryan Coogler and Michael B. Jordan’s thoughts from their recent piece in New York Magazine, Deadpool getting its official R rating, new movies coming out the week of 22 January, and, as always, an analysis of this weekend’s box office take. But don’t worry, it’s a leisurely ride on a splendid evening. Don’t mind the snow. It’s Sarah’s world, but Jon’s in his own mind.

My review of the new trade paperback, Battleworld: Master of Kung Fu, is up over at +Geeks World Wide  - While not as much a labour or a love as my read of the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Omnibus from earlier this month, this book is nearly as quirky and off-beat as that story. This book is "in" the Marvel Universe but not fully "in" it. Enough so that it has its own voice rather than lining up with the rest of the Marvel Universe. A good read for those looking for something from one of the big two, but as hard-wired into the typical mold and editorial direction.
Battleworld: Master of Kung Fu Marvel Writer: Haden Blackman Artist: Dalibor Talajic Inker: Goran Sudzuka Colorist: Miroslav Mrva Battleworld: Master of Kung Fu was released on 05 January, 2016, an…

My Gaming Diary for Tuesday, January 19th, 2016: Left 4 Dead (PC) - My Gaming Diary - Uggghhhhh. A map takes me about 15 minutes. But not when I fail a mission and have to re-run the whole level all over again. I love playing this older game, but one hang-up in its design is that there are no checkpoint saves on a map. It's do-or-die, fight to the finish. But maybe that's ok, because it never feels like too much of a grind, and every minute of gameplay is pretty fun. Still, I would have much rather completed 2 maps tonight rather than played the same one three times. Like I said at the beginning of this play session, I hate the Sewers.

Almost as much hard work as my League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Omnibus review, I also finished my watch of all the movies in the Resident Evil franchise. - Here are my overall thoughts summarizing the series as well as the last 3 movies.
It turns out that after completing my mission to watch all five films currently in the Resident Evil film franchise, I am highly surprised by my overall takeaway from the series. The biggest part o…

Weekly Geekly – Episode #3: The One Where We Talk About George Miller - In this episode, we pretty much settle on a format for the show going forward.

Welcome to the geek smörgåsbord! The Weekly Geekly is the tour de force podcast of the Geeks World Wide Radio Network. We stack the deck with a panel of four GWW writers who cover the news in geek across comics, games, movies, TV, and tech. Hold on to you butts! It’s going to be a fast ride as Matt, James, Peter, and Agasicles discuss the loss of two iconic pop culture creators, zoom over to George Miller’s recent statements about directing another Mad Max film, and round the corner with discussions about Marvel’s resurrection tease, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl. Bazinga!!!
