Salty Truth's E3 2017 Top 5

By Corey Floyd


Last week we were graced by E3 conference. The gaming world comes together in the Ultimate pissing contest to see who can shit on who for the next year. Sony vs Xbox while Nintendo does their own thing. It's always very a wild time and thing you will see is always golden. I Just want to talk about a few things I liked in no particular order.  

5 Cuphead. A few years ago they showed a reveal trailer of this game and I fell in love. I look at the term gamer a little differently than most. I don’t think it just means you play this one particular game really well and you don’t play anything else i.e Madden, COD, Overwatch. When i here that there gaming is just whatever the hot item is I cringe mainly because It has no originality to it. One of the reasons I love Xbox is because they give indy companies a chance to show what they can do. Cuphead is great example of that. It’s a arcade style run around shoot em up like Contra but it’s looks like a old school cartoon. It looks really fun and family friendly. Which is a rarity on any list of mine lol. Here's the Trailer for it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4TjUPXAn2Rg

4. Assassin's Creed Origins . Now the quality in this series has been called a fall from grace. Since it got to a point they were putting out a games every year. Plus the Unity game failure and subpar sales of their last installment. They went back to Lab took their time and revealed this. One of the things I really enjoyed was they are telling the origin story of the assassins after 7 installments and DLC we never heard how it all began and I wanna know. The gameplay mechanics have been changed. Over the years the mechanics never changed they were too easy. In a gameplay trailer you see they took a few pages from the Dark Souls series. Lucky for us not too many pages. Dodging looks paramount also there's a falcon you can use to look at the terrain ahead kind of like a drone. Also this was the first time we have a Black protagonist and it’s not  DLC or a poorly made PSP title so Hooray !!!!!The trailerr will be put right here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2iBAPsQRto

3. Anthem. This is supposed to be their answer for Destiny. Which in my opinion was lackluster due to the fact they did not give you a full story on release and 75% of the DLC was trash. Anthem from what has been shown is a single or multiplayer game where you build and customize these exo suits and fly off and explore the world and take out baddies. Now Luiggi reminded me that it was a EA game so I will tread cautiously on the title. But I’m still excited. Don’t fuck this up EA.

Here’s the trailer, what do you think?. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQhbHwkMSA4

2. Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus
I’ve always enjoyed the Wolfenstein series personally. Not many games out there where you can take out the worst people in the world. Unless there a game about the KKK. Anyway, the trailer gave us a very bleak America where they took over. From the trailer, it looks like they did some more world building as well as interesting characters. Its definitely the most brutal installment a shotgun blast to the face leaves quite a mess in this game. Plus there’s a giant robotic bog you can control that shoots flames. The trailer right here of course   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wZwU5Xil0sA . Is it just me or does this make me feel like one of the Inglorious Bastards in this game?

1.  Beyond Good and Evil 2 was one of the best moments at E3. The sequel to acclaimed playstation 2 title has been in development hell for almost 10 years. Th3 second installment of this Ubisoft title does not have an official release date. From the game developer of the project who was holding back tears after the trailer reveal we learn this will be a prequel of sorts for the series. I say of sorts cause we have not seen Jade who was the main character from the last one. Little else is now for now but if this trailer is of thing to come I cannot wait. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UrofwDfzZBk

You may have noticed I did not choose any console exclusives. I Did not want to shun anyone from this convo. But Mario Odyssey does get a special mention. Also We talk about everything else at e3 on our podcast pleases download and check us outhttps://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/amerime-junkies/id1212151606?mt=2  .  Till then peace.

Valerian and the city of 1000 planets(A Salty Review)

By Corey Floyd This summer we have been hit with a lot of movies as usual. But one of them I had so many questions about. This movie was Valerian. It’s based off a graphic novel. The film was written and directed by Luc Besson the mind behind The Fifth Element, Taken series and Transporter series. With a stellar trailer with beautiful visuals, you would think this was a cinematic slam dunk right?   While this film is very heavy with beautiful CGI visuals that tell a narrative without words when the main actors step they drag this film from the depths of space to a crappy SYFY movie. Our main character  Major Valerian is played by Dane DeHaan. Most people should remember him from The Amazing Spider Man 2 as Harry Osborn and Andrew Detmer from the hit film Chronicle. His co star is Cara Delevingne. She was the woman who played the Enchantress in the universally panned but financially successful Suicide Squad. I have a few problems with these two that affect this movie in a big way. Despit…

Not a Single Potato Chip was Eaten! Thoughts on The Netflix Death Note Adaptation.

By Luiggi Cavanna
Let me start with that this is not so much as review but more of comparison between the Netflix original and it’s source material. For a review go check out our local movie critic, Corey Floyd, he wrote an insightful review on this movie. Now let’s get on with this train wreck.
Two will go in just one will come out... LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!
I’m going to say this, if you like the manga/anime, you are going to HATE this movie! This is coming from a guy that wrote a blog about how we should give the live action adaptation a chance and that we shouldn’t hate before it comes out. Well it is out now, so we can hate on it.
L: “Man this movie is ASS!”
Ok! Let's start dissecting this ugly specimen by comparing the characters of the movie with their anime counterparts. What better place to start than with the main protagonist Light!
I’m going to need a drink….. And I don’t drink!!
Oh boy this is going to be something! The Light from the source material was an incredibly smar…
