Halo 5: Guardians Campaign Footage

I know I’ve been quiet again lately which wasn’t the plan but it was unavoidable but for far less dramatic reasons than the last time. That’s not to say I have much to talk about. So instead I’m just going to share the Halo 5: Guardians campaign footage that’s found its way on to YouTube. I cannot wait for this game.

And I may have got a little over excited about the return of a certain ODST.

Warhammer 40,000: Regicide

So another Warhammer 40,000 game is in production. This time it’s 40k Chess. To be honest I have no feelings one way or the other on how good or not it will be. Or even how advisable it is to make a 40k version of the original strategy game when Games Workshop spend a lot of energy telling everyone theirs is the best. However the teaser and the animations look epic so for now I don’t really care.

And pay special attention to the bolters and heavy bolters when they fire. Because you can actually see the contrail of the bolt round’s rocket igniting. Which is pretty badass.

Deadpool Movie Test Footage

Whilst I’m not terribly knowledgeable about Deadpool as a comic book character, I know he’s a complete mentalist. So this test footage for the film seems to fairly accurately hit the mark.

Warning it’s very sweary. Not that should bother you if you’re a regular visitor of this site but as trailers usually aren’t I thought it better to say.

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies Trailer

The Hobbit, for me, has been a distinctly average affair. Stretched over three films when at the absolute most it should have been two even with all the source material and non-Hobbit events crammed in there.

The first film was okay but let down by moments of stupidity on the part of Peter Jackson. Just some scenes offered nothing and should have been cut. It was too long, too laboured and often too cheap. The second film was better but sadly nearly as forgettable with it being yet another overly long road trip movie. Evangeline Lilly all done up like an Elf was the probably my favourite bit, but that’s just me… The films erred too much on the light hearted side of butchery to make it more accessible to children but actually just comes off as naive and inappropriate.

The trailer for The Battle of Five Armies has come out and finally looks like a Lord of the Rings film. It looks gritty, grungy and the capery of slitting a Godlin King’s throat is long gone. This one should be good.
