The Late Gamer Plays Call Of Juarez – Gunslinger

A Review By Hidai Moya

This isn’t a cowboy simulator, but a straightforward callback to the Western arcade shooter.
In typical Ubisoft fashion it takes real historical events, real outlaws, & real stories & puts its own unique spin on them (if you learned a bunch of stuff playing Assassin’s Creed games this does the same thing).
You play as a gunslinger who encountered all of the legends of the Old West from Billy the Kid to Jesse James & is out for revenge against the man who murdered his brother.

The shooting galleries are a terrific variety of Western settings. Staying true to its roots the shooting mechanics themselves are simple & effective & make you feel as if you were standing right in front of the arcade machine putting quarters in.
If you think Red Dead is too slow or simply need an alternative Western game this is the one!
Grade B+

The Geeks’ Watch – Episode 176 Jodorowsky’s Dune

“The future comes, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall miss no game, withhold no news, report all rumors. I shall wear no jerseys and plead allegiance to no side. I shall live and die on my webpage. I am the word in the darkness. I am the watcher of the tv. I am the megaphone that informs the realms of geek. I pledge my hands and name to the Geek’s Watch, for geeks and all the geeks to come.” John, Jess, Mitch, Stephen, and Elizabeth talk about their week’s watch, then discuss the documentary ‘Jodorowsky’s Dune’, the scifi epic that was almost made.

The Late Gamer Plays Call Of Duty – Advanced Warfare

A Review By Hidai Moya

Advanced Warfare was so much fun, even after The MW Trilogy & the first 3 Black Ops titles, I thought I had seen it all but this game breathed a lot of new life into the series.
The first 2/3’s of this game is an unapologetic, over the top, bombastic, thrilling Michael Bay inspired roller coaster ride.

I know its a cliche to say something is “action packed” but this really was. There was definitely adrenaline pumping through my veins in a lot of the set pieces. You’re not quite a “space marine” in this game but you do have a cool exo suit & smart weapons that make combat more amusing.
The story is predictable as hell especially with Keven Spacey playing the head of the worlds largest Mercenary Army & they definitely phoned in the finale like they were running out of time but it was a blast up to that point.
Grade B

My Spy (2020) isn’t amazing or a must-watch, but it is a surprisingly cute & heartwarming story. Chloe Coleman is endearing, and Dave Bautista continues to show us his comedic chops that made me genuinely laugh out loud a couple of times. This is worth a watch!

Charlie’s Angels (2019) is a lot of fun, and I really enjoyed the chemistry between the leading ladies! Naomi Scott plays her character perfectly! Ella Balinska was a convincing & mesmerizing badass! And I was just happy to see Kristen Stewart have so much fun onscreen!

We’re back for another fun #podcast episode of Pitch This, with it @AndyyyCanchola and I bring back a movie in order to give it a sequel and beef up that franchise. All that amazing wistfulness and #POPCulture news
