Backwards Demands: State of Emergency

Real Talk By: KJ

State of Emergency (2003)

This was a departure from Rockstar’s usual lineup.  The plot was scaled down, violence was amped-up.  State of Emergency wasn’t going to win major awards, it’s just a chaotic title.  While the visuals left something to be desired, it was for a purpose.  Continue reading “Backwards Demands: State of Emergency”

Why Isn’t John Wick A (Good) Game?

Real Talk By: Cmack Tha Don

Gamers have been forced to put up with many horrible film adaptations of video games, many so bad I won’t even mention them here so that readers won’t be reminded of the trauma. But tie-in video games, with only some small exceptions, can often be some of the worst scourge of the gaming world as well, with half-finished concept games rebranded to have a popular theme or characters in it, or rushed development to match the release of the movie or show it’s promoting. Continue reading “Why Isn’t John Wick A (Good) Game?”

Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis Review (GCN, Xbox)

Real Talk By: The AX

Whenever I play Injustice: Gods Among Us, I tend to use Aquaman. Not because he’s cool or even remotely powerful, but because of the absolute shame it brings upon those whom I conquer. It’s a known fact that Aquaman has been a laughing-stock of the comic industry for years. Continue reading “Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis Review (GCN, Xbox)”

Conker’s Bad Fur Day Retro Review (N64)

Real Talk By: Ms. Throwback

Back in the late 90’s and early millennium, developer Rare was at the height of all things video games.  In March of 2001 they followed up their previous success with a bombshell title like we’ve never seen before. Enter Conker’s Bad Fur Day. Continue reading “Conker’s Bad Fur Day Retro Review (N64)”

The Dis-Kinected Consumer

Real Talk By: Knowledge

With price drops, changes to pre-laid plans, and the proverbial “you win” given by the big names of the gaming world, gamers everywhere began to believe that they were the masters of the supply and demand chain. Oh boy, were we wrong. Continue reading “The Dis-Kinected Consumer”

Real Talk By: KJ

The Play Legit Fam is ranking not only the Game of the Month, and Trailer,  but other cool Happenings in the world of entertainment. Its one big Arcade cabinet. Assassin’s Creed IV arrived, and Bad Grandpa hit theaters. What other events rocked our culture in the month of October?

Gravity

George Clooney and Sandra Bullock star in one of the year’s biggest surprises. Gravity features a small cast, but grand effects and quality acting. This is proof that a great space story can be told without lasers and aliens. It held down the number one spot for several weeks. Check out this epic movie of survival now.

Game of the Month: Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag

Reviews have been pretty positive for this year’s Creed. Is it the freedom? The Story? Whatever the case may be, its our game of the month. Ubisoft even removed its Uplay online restrictions from this game, and all future titles. This obviously makes Black Flag a much more enjoyable game already. Players have stated, they truly feel like pirates when controlling Captain Kenway throughout the game. Future PS4/ Xbox One owners will have something to look forward to in ACIV. Plenty of quality DLC is already working it’s way through the pipelines.

Bad Grandpa

In the Spirit of Jackass, Johnny Knoxville poses as an 86-year-old Grandpa. He’s bringing his gags to different locations catching civilians off guard via hidden camera. What makes this a better movie than most Jackass stuff, is that it follows a plot-line. Knoxville’s character Irving is an old pervert, who gets into hilarious situations. His grandson is along for the ride. They are an unlikely pair, but the combo works. It was the right length, the movie never wears out its welcome. Go with a group, you’re guaranteed to have a few laughs.

UFC 166 Cain Velasquez vs. Junior Dos Santos

ufc

Every match on the card was sweet. Cain Velasquez took care of Junior Dos Santos for the last time. It was an entertaining fight that solidified Cain’s dominance in the Heavyweight Circuit. So the title fight was great, but the big story was Diego Sanchez v Gilbert Melendez. GM was beating the snot out of Sanchez in the early going, but he would rally and almost win the fight. His display of courage was of Rocky proportions. The crowd was 100 percent behind Diego even if the judges didn’t score it that way.

NBA 2K14 OMG Trailer

There’s a reason the best trailer this month goes to 2K Sports. The “OMG Trailer” shows gamers what the next systems can achieve, at such an early stage of existence. Look beyond this being a hoops game. Could you imagine a fighting game, or a third person shooter equipped with graphics of this quality? Everyone will get their hands on the game soon, as it Launches with PS4 (November 14th) and Xbox One (November 22nd).
