A Review…A Plea…A Game

I was given the task of reviewing 5 Minute Dungeon, a game that has not only reached its goal on its Kickstarter page, it has DEMOLISHED it!. Now I was supposed to do this a LONG, LONG time ago, but unfortunately life did what it does and go in the way of doing the fun stuff for some not so fun stuff. So for the tardiness of this article I am sorry to those I let down, but as things go I am following through on what I am supposed to do no matter how late.

5-Minute Dungeon is fun for those that love imagination, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, or just generally love competition. It is quick, the rules are relatively easy, and the game itself is amazingly fun, especially when you’re with good friends that also have a healthy competitive nature. As I said before the Kickstarter has smashed its goals, but it is still up and running, and I have been told there is a possible extension in it! So you can still go and help make this the best possible release of all time for a game by going straight to their Kickstarter and helping them even more HERE!

The innovation is great, even the mock up review copy that I received was really impressive, and to create a game for generations of young and old nerds, those that play D&D in the long for or those that have always wanted to but couldn’t let a whole day get away from them 5-Minute Dungeon has everything you need. A co-operative game with a 5 minute time limit, hence the name, to beat the boss and move on to the next difficulty level!

The colors! The characters! The game itself! Have I added enough exclamation points for you yet?!!!!!!!!!

In all seriousness though it is very rare in this day and age that folks get a chance to make something great, something they fully thought up, something that rails against convention and embraces ones imagination. This game does everything you want it to, it’s an ingenious creation that, if you get it from them on their Kickstarter here, you won’t be disappointed. It’s fun, it allows you and your friends to come together as a team and defeat the enemies, and it creates a heart wrenching thrill that very few games do nowadays.

So go, give, enjoy, and as always never hate.

From One To Another!

Well it has been another stellar day for news and content! Supergirl has been on hiatus for a few now as CBS didn’t know if it wanted to re-new the show. It started off pretty strong, but tapered to something like 2.6 million views a show, and at the cost of each episode, the pilot cost 14 million dollars alone, and the cost of filming in Los Angeles CBS just didn’t want to take that gamble. So what happened you ask, was it cancelled? No dear fan it was moved from CBS to it’s sister station the CW, that’s right the house that Arrow built, which features the Flash and Legends of Tomorrow as pillars of what has become a channel for DC superheroes. If Supergirl brings her fanbase there is a shot she dethrones the Flash as the highest rated show on the CW. So welcome Supergirl everyone, and if you didn’t watch Season 1 do so now because I guarantee there will be some more crossovers now that she’s home.

Now onto video game into movie news “Assassin’s Creed: The Movie” starring Michael Fassbender has released its very first trailer via the Jimmy Kimmel show last fassbender-assassins-creednight. There are a few liberties that I can see in the trailer that have been taken, the biggest is the Animus was basically a VR bed and here it’s a ton more activity then anyone should have to do while re-living someone else’s life. I guess it makes sense though because panning from action sequence to Fassbender laying in a compy recline with something on his face wouldn’t exactly make for thrilling action sequences. Being a huge fan of the games I really hope they do them justice. If you haven’t seen the full trailer here it is:

Alright folks that’s all for now, as always share, comment, but never hate!
