Pirates of the Caribbean 5, A Review

I’ll be up front: the latest title for Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Men Tell No Tales, was a great title to return to the Caribbean franchise. I was skeptical of many things, but found myself swept back into the franchise on a worthy journey indeed.

And that first meeting of Salazar was probably the coolest introduction to an antagonist I have seen in a long time. Like, wow–awesome.

One More Light, The 7th Album

Haters gonna hate, lovers gonna wait, and muscistens gonna appreciate. Like seriously, Linkin Park’s latest album, One More Light, is causing quite the division in fandom as it most definitely is not the Linkin Park people have once perceived.. yet is most definitely the Linkin Park I’ve come to know and love.

TellTale Games: Guardian’s of the Galaxy

TellTale Games released a much anticipated series off Marvel’s Guardian’s of the Galaxy in late April. After a failed attempt at waiting till summer’s end to pick up, I fell victim of its intrigue.

TellTale Games is known to make their games into episodic stories of rich depth, choice, and characters. So let me first clarify: as of thus, only the first episode is available. That aside, I will be playing them as they unlock and updating as I can.

So lets get gritty.

I was a HUGE fan of The Wolf Among Us. Seriously #amazing though absolutely not for children or teens. Guardian’s of the Galaxy has a much more peer-friendly atmosphere. It is, as the films are, a lot more focused upon creating a lively atmosphere and stunning visuals. With but the first episode available, its actually hard to say how I feel about the plot thus far. It isn’t feeling quite too original or deep, which leads me into the next point…

It feels far too choppy. Ya, choppy. The scenes feel underdeveloped, emotions and responses rushed, and cut-scenes broken. I understand TellTale has a distinct “vibe” or “style” in their games as was the case with The Walking Dead and Tales From The Borderlands.

But this is a little more obvious. I will give it time and chance, but the first episode felt like its whole scene/graphics production was cut short. Maybe it has something to do with the pre-leak of its work-in-progress, but regardless, I have high hopes.

Especially for the story. In all the other games, they end up being quite creative, so I’m looking forward to where the present plot will grow and change hopefully.

In a boomerang, I am slightly let down thus far but look forward to that opinion changing. Presently, the game sits at a 6.5/10. I do really appreciate it being more peer-appropriate, as I am a huge fan of replaying good games with friends and family and sharing to the rest at every opportunity should the game be worth  it. Which I hope the Guardians of the Galaxy will become.
