These are the kinds of punchlines you end up writing when you spent a good portion of your childhood watching Ren & Stimpy.
- Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes is pretty fun, if a little repetitive and slow at times. It’s definitely one of those games that gets you to pull the “Whoops it’s been like five hours somehow” moves, which I think we can all agree is the mark of a good game. I haven’t tried the multiplayer yet, but I’ll let you know once I test it out.
- As I mentioned last week, the Hulk vs. Thor/Wolverine movies were pretty good. I would definitely pick it up if you were a fan of the old ’90s X-men cartoon. They’re very similar to those old cartoons, containing a lot of fan service and semi-obscure references, except with better animation and a little more blood (yay!). Plus, Deadpool is in the Wolverine film a fair bit, and definitely steals his share of scenes. The best thing about the Thor film was the sound effect Thor’s hammer made when it hit the Hulk. Think of the end scene in Casino in the cornfield. It’s kind of like that.
- I leave for Vegas early next week for work. If anyone is wondering, Vegas is one of my least favorite places on Earth. It’s like being trapped inside a shopping mall 24/7, except everyone smokes and a pretzel costs $47.50. It’s a glorious five days of airports, fat sweaty morons and people who are convinced a xeroxed flyer of two women kissing is going to change my mind about wanting a herpes-ridden escort. The best part of Vegas is leaving it, which feels like fleeing Mordor as Sauron’s evil tower crumbles. All flying on the back of a giant eagle, screaming “Eat shit goblin scum” and getting pretty psyched to party with Rosie Cotton.
