Today marks the end of Marvel Comics’ old and the beginning of the “All-New, All-Different Marvel”. Today, the finale of the “Secret Wars” mega event is released. We will finally get to see, at least, we’re hoping to see a resolution to this world Doom has been made god over. The aftermath also begins this week with the beginning of new story-arcs/universes/configurations in Marvel’s individual titles. Iron Man begins anew in “Invincible Iron Man #1” as does Peter Parker/Spider-Man in “The Amazing Spider-Man #1”.
As a few of you fine readers (at least I hope) are like me, we are attempting to collect all of the Smash Bros. amiibo. There was a dangerous precedent set by Nintendo by discontinuing three of the characters in the first wave. Nintendo essentially told consumers, “…hey, you guys (and gals) want these amiibo? Well, you better win these Scorch Trials of Hunger Games of Death Race! NOW GO!” It’s been many months since the amiibo craze has begun worldwide.
*cracks knuckles* Ahhh… it’s been way too long… How has everyone been holding up? Things have been happening over here at a hare’s pace and I’m attempting to get myself back into the swing of things. I went on a nice vacation up to see my 9-month-old nephew and also to see my mother for her birthday. During that time, however, I left my PlayStation 4, along with Destiny, here at home. Over the course of the 10 days that I had been gone, the game had gone through a litany of changes. There was the quintessential “dead time” of the week between Destiny “Year One” and the latest year two DLC “The Taken King”. In which, new modes of Crucible gameplay had been unlocked and rolled out to gamers as well as the loss of some constant gameplay modes, such as the Daily Story mission, the Weekly Strike and the Weekly Nightfall Strike missions.
