Seriously. I just finished this saga yesterday, and OMG, so freaking good! It's Cosmic Marvel at it's absolute best. I'd put it up there on the list alongside The Infinity Gauntlet and The Dark Phoenix Saga, it was that good, IMO. And classic Jim Starlin artwork.
It was very thought-provoking and entertaining. In addition to introduction The Magus, it also introduces Gamora and Pip The Troll, and gives some insight into what exactly Adam Warlock's Soul Gem is. Plus the appearance of a surprise villain. But the main-event here, is definetly Adam Warlock vs. The Magus. I can't explain it, really, without giving away the story, which is half the magic of reading it: Figuring out the pieces as you go along.
If you're a fan of cosmic stories and super-hero comics in general, I highly recommend picking these issues up. And you better do it while you can. I have a feeling that some of these issues are gonna start rising in value (just go see Avengers to see what I'm talking about, and stay for the end).
It runs in Strange Tales (vol. 1) #178-181, and Warlock (vol. 1) #9-11.
An absolute masterpiece! Fantastic gaming experience that I thought had gone the way of cartridges and wired-controllers. It looked 8-bit, it played like a 2D Metroid game (gameplay that was very reminiscent of Super Metroid), and had a sometimes quirky story. If you like Metroidvania games, then you'll ABSOLUTELY ADORE this game. I can't recommend it enough. Download it and play it!
My only complaints are that it's far too short, I want more! And there was no exploration percentage of completion at the end, like there is on Metroid games. I'd like to know how well I did. I ended with 30 missiles and 45 life energy.
Are there any sequels/prequels?
Who else saw today's episode? AWESOME!
I'm loving this cartoon. I know I made a stink about it being in CGI rather than hand-drawn before, but at this point, it's all forgiven. The show has been fantastic. And this week's episode may have been the best yet.
The origin of the Blue Lantern Corps has begun. There was a battle against a large faction of Red Lanterns, we saw the GLs get a power-boost from Ganthet's first Blue Lantern (object, not person). And Ganthet is banned from the The Guardians of the Universe and OA! And OA is currently defenseless as Ali Apsa (one of The Guardians of the Universe) has sent them all to The Forbidden Sector to aid Hal Jordan & Kilowog, which will take an entire year for them to arrive.
I can't for next week's episode!
So I just got this game in the mail today, and I went to test it and dang! What a fan-freaking-tastic game! I was pleasantly surprised. The only Thunder Force game I had played previous was a demo of Thunder Force V on PS1 (which was fun as hell, and HIGH on my wantlist). I was expecting the same side-scrolling shoot-em up formula (albeit with some twists here and there) that Thunder Force V had. Instead I find a free-roaming shoot-em up. What an awesome concept! Why don't other games use this formula? And it's dirt cheap to boot!
I can tell this gonna be one of my favorites. I only played it for a few minutes, but I'm sure I'll have a blast when I actually set aside some time for some real gaming time.
My only question about it is: What's with those stupid walls? How do you get past them? The only thing I could figure was to just run through it and sacrifice a ship in the process, but I know that can't be right. What am I supposed to do to get past them?
