The Expendables

Well I watched this film a few days ago and thought I'd do a sort of review.

The Expendables is famous for having the definitive collection of action heroes, the film boasts an all-star cast including: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and even Stone Cold Steve Austin.

So what is the film about, well it's about.....erm....well actually I don't really know, not because it had some ultra-complex mind bending plot, but because it didn't have a plot of any kind. This film is just non stop action without any form of motivation or reason behind it. Somewhere in there you are briefly given some sort of arbitrary reason, something about mercenaries overthrowing a corrupt dictator. Despite having such a famous cast, there is no form of character development, there isn't even any form of back-story, we are just told that all these men are in a mercenary team.

And then there is the dialogue. In the brief moments when something isn't dying, exploding or being shot at, we are treated to some of the cheesiest lines imaginable. One example is given by Schwarzenegger: 'Hey, how about dinner?.....In a thousand years'.

So if you like those over the top 80's action films with nothing but fight scenes interrupted by cheesy lines and endless cliché, then you will love this obvious tribute by an ageing cast to a bygone age. However if like me you look for a coherent meaningful plot with some form of character progression then look elsewhere.

Sorry guys!

Sorry that I haven't been doing much recently. I'm going to Uni next week so I'm very busy with sorting stuff out at the moment. I should be back to doing regular posts in a week or two.

But for the time being I will give you some verticals!

Nostalgia much?

After much thought I have decided to compile a list of my personal top 5 'retro' games (I say retro I'm only 18 so retro for me is 10 years old max) .

Number 5 - Rayman 2

This was one of the first games I got on my PS2 and was also one of my favourite. I spent hours jumping around, collecting lums and doing nothing for a while just to see Rayman play basketball with his body.

The worlds were amazing and the characters were even better, my favourite being the teensies

Number 4 - Spyro 2

Again, one of the first games I played on the PS2, and probably my absolute favourite. I absolutely loved Spyro 2, all the worlds, the characters, the story; all of it. To this day I still know how to complete several of the levels 100%.

I spent hours meticulously going through every level trying to get every single gem and orb.

My favourite level had to be Colossus, one of the first levels; involving mountains, monks and a yeti

Number 3 - Sonic the Hedgehog

Yes, of course Sonic, it had to be there. This was the first video game I ever played. I did not actually own it, but I would often borrow a Mega Drive from a friend of my dad for months on end.

Oh the frustration and hours spent in front of this game. I don't remember much, seeing as I was about 6 at the time, but I remember being incredibly frustrated at a particular underwater level, in which sonic would always drown!

Number 2 - Age of Empires 2

Well, Age of Empires 2, it speaks for itself. My first venture into PC gaming, and remains to this day the best.
The buildings, the units, the campaigns, all of it was excellent.

And then of course there was the multiplayer, my first ever multiplayer experience (save for 2-player split-screen with my friend). Hours spent playing an endless number of custom maps, some incredibly complex (the monk race in particular, anyone else play that?)

Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already! Start the game already!

Number 1 -  Pokemon Blue

THE most important decision of your life.
What else could it be but Pokemon. Pokemon was HUGE. The cartoons, the cards and most importantly the games. For about a year, school lunch times were dominated by pokemon, it was everywhere. I spent  hours and hours of my life training my little bulbasaur into a mighty venasaur.

To me, Pokemon remains the only good hand-held game...ever. You can take your brain training and Loco-Roco and shove it up your arse, nothing comes close to Pokemon!
