Blazing Hell At NBC.

So the Constantine trailer has dropped and I got to admit it hasn't sent me running away. I love the Hellblazer comic and it's the only one that I actively try to grab back issues of. Still this never blinded me to some of the difficulties of adapting the series for movie and television. While flawed I still really enjoyed the movie and I get that feeling from this TV show. It's going to be flawed but I think i'm really going to enjoy it. Anyway the trailer is below.

Just Don't Have That Thieving Nature.

So today I finished Thief and I couldn't help but breathe a sigh of relief. Not exactly the best way to feel about a game huh?

Unfortunately I was only interested in looting in the game. It was the only time I actually felt that ember of joy burn in me. Even with that there was a sense of frustration as no matter how many poppies I downed or how methodically I went through a level, I never got a 100% loot on a chapter. Client Jobs? No problem. But those story chapters had to have hidden loot in some pretty diabolical places.

Speaking of the story chapters. I was never invested in the story. Whenever given the chance to skip, I would take it quicker than a kangaroo on cocaine. (Did that even make sense?) It's just pretty standard affair and being new to the world of Thief it never gave me anything to want to come back to. Not like Dishonored.

Oh Dishonored. I remember having a fling with you. A fling so epic it made me want more. I've sent you flowers, chocolates and other love cliches, and yet you've left me questioning my heart. WHY DO YOU HURT ME SO?

All the time I played Thief, I had Dishonored in my heart. Thief never really had a chance did it?

Well at least I finished it so I can get back to Assassin's Creed 4. It seems unless i'm Dishonored, it's a pirate life for me.

What's A Titan Lord to Do?

Time to make a confession. In my Steam library I have both Risen 1 & 2, yet never have I bothered to actually play them. It was one of those drunken humble bundle sort of deals. You get high on life and video games and the next morning you wake up and you can't remember what you've done. However there you are with an orange traffic cone and the sense of deep personal shame.

But now there is a third Risen coming and while the trailer looks great, I'm not sure whether I should go back and play the first two games. I've heard some bad bad things about those things. Anyway the trailer is down below.
