Mad Max on the PS4, some musings.

This here is a review of the PS4 version of the Mad Max game.  When I first became aware of the game, I had a feeling it would be something I would like.  Recently I've been playing a lot of sandbox games and have played them quite extensively.

The Arkham series and their simple combat and stealth mechanics started it off I guess and that spread into the Shadow/War of Mordor, Just Cause games and to the Witcher 3.  Which are pretty much the majority of the "big" games I've been spending my time on.

At the time of release(2015), I think was playing a lot of Just Cause(maybe).  I remember seeing articles about Max and thinking that it looks fun, but thought I would be reaching the end of my tether for Batman Arkham style sandbox games.  I was also still playing Red Dead Redemption as well.

Reviews were ok saying it was standard fare and I felt satisfied with my decision to not bother with it.  I have always enjoyed the world of Mad Max and absolutely loved the movie Fury Road; it's such a simple premise but done very well and expands the Max lore quite nicely, but felt no strong urge to get the game that was released the same time.  The Mad Max game has little to do with Fury Road, but theoretically is set before it.

So eventually (2021) I see a tweet stating that the Mad Max is cracking a 5.99 price and I just so happened to have that amount hanging around on my long untouched PSN account. So I grabbed it.

Legacy Wildrider, A review


Stunticons, Stunticons, how shall I count the ways I love you?

One Mississippi, two Mississippi.  Man, Mississippi is a strange word when you type it out.

Going along with my love for evil Decepticon cars, I have here the beautiful Wildrider.  Having been stunned at the Delightful faithfulness of Dragstrip and being super impressed at how close Wildrider's vehicle mode looked to the original Ferrari 308 GTB, I had to get this guy.  Plus I was determined to finish Menasor.  So here I will be talking about the Legacy version of Wildrider as I count down to Menasor.

How is he?

Marvel Legends Thor


Well, here is an interesting one.  I got this guy a long long time ago and the photos have been either

A) Transferred over 3 computers

B) Sitting on an external harddrive for about 7 years.

C) had an unfinished draft on blogger for 1 year.

And so I thought I would finally do something with them.  Following along in doing some simple posting of toys, which I like reading about, I'm going to do a post on this here Marvel Legends Thor figure.

Must put the pictures up so I can look at them, which I did.

So I had these images since 2013 apparently and it would seem I really wanted a Thor figure.  Let's have a look at this Thor from the Terrax Build a figure line.

Tets plays MGSV Ground Zeroes

 So after many, many, MANY years of harassment from a pal, I finally got around to playing a Metal Gear Solid game again.  It was Metal Gear Solid, Ground Zeroes, a kind of demo version of MGSV Phantom Pain.  

It's a big step for me.

Legacy Dragstrip, A review.


Crappy editing dot com

I heard about the Legacy Stunticons and a rumour soon started wafting about the internet saying that Motormaster's trailer would be a skeleton for Menasor.  I immediately thought, hey that sounds cool and thus, another quest for Stunticons starts.

I previously thought the Unite Warriors Stunticons were fairly good.  I still feel this way, but looking at these Legacy ones, they are a definite different breed.  Today I'll be looking at Dragstrip.  The Unite Warrior one was pretty good for a modern take of the character.  The Animated one was an Arcee re-colour which managed to work reasonably well.  Let's check this new one out.

Yes, I like the Stunticons...

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark; Completed!

I played the Ps3 one ok? ok!

I remember thinking about buying this in Australia, but I don't think I ever did.  It was low priority for me, being a movie tie in game and therefore very likely shit.  I was waiting for a good price, which it never seemed to reach for some reason.  Then, stuff happened and I got around to paying it now.

What's it like?

A bit strange this one.  Let's goooooooooo
