Stream Recap 6/6/2018: Tomorrow Never Dies

GoldenEye!

 

Well, now that¬†that’s out of the way, we can discuss 1999’s 007: Tomorrow Never Dies, in which James Bond skis, teabags, and YouTubes his way to victory. I think that may not be 100% accurate.

Stream Recap 6/5/2018: Spider-Man: The Movie

There’s a certain respect for the player, I think, in skipping the beginning of an origin story when crafting a game based on a movie (and perhaps even based on another property). Unless you’ve got an incredibly unique way of packaging and presenting a Superhero’s rise to power, it’s best to leave it than risk lulling a player into a fit of button mashing immediately after the title screen.

I love Blade. I fucking love Blade. There’s something about his character (both on screen and in the comics) that I’m totally down with. I just felt like I need to mention that first up before I commit to anything that might imply otherwise. Years and years after my passion for Blade blossomed, I discovered that the movie received a game on the PlayStation way back in 2000. Naturally, as part of my quest in recent history to play games based specifically on movies (although every once in a while I’ll leave the gate open for a TV show or other licensed property), I acquired a copy of the game. And, as does not happen often enough, it’s not altogether unenjoyable.
