REVIEW: Ben 10 Omniverse Aliens At War

REVIEW: Ben 10 Omniverse Aliens At War

When I watch Ben 10, I cannot help but to marvel at the magnificence of the series.  When I was given the opportunity to review a copy of Ben 10 Omniverse Aliens At War Vol. 3, how could I not accept?

Ben 10 Omniverse Aliens At War Vol. 3 contains two disks, with five episodes on each, as well as a special Alien Database Feature. When I reviewed Vol. 2, I was able to sit watch the entire volume in one sitting on a lazy Sunday.  Unfortunately, with a job to do and extra work on the weekends, I was not able to do so.  So, we had to spread it out over a couple weeks.  However, that doesn’t mean that it was any less exciting to watch.  In fact, there are many days that I could not wait to come home and pop it into my DVD player and relax from a stressful day by watching Ben Tennison and his friends defeat the Incurseans!

“The Incursean scourge is on the march!  Their armada kidnaps the Gourmand Queen, they theart Ben’s plans to escort the Vilgax to a maximum security planet, and worst of all, they set out to invade Earth!  And with Plumber agents trapped in Incursean territory, Ben and Rook must employ the services of Rad Dudesman, the roughest, toughest smuggler in the galaxy”

Now that the holidays are sneaking upon us, I strongly urge you to relive the Ben 10 Omniverse experience by purchasing your copy for yourself or as a gift.  While you are at it, be sure to pick up Volume 1 and 2 as well!

Pokemon Leaks: Angry Or Okay?

Pokemon Leaks: Angry Or Okay?

The recent Pokemon leaks obviously upset those at Nintendo and the Pokemon Company.  There have also been quite a few fans that were just as upset.  Not so much at the early release in parts of Canada and Italy, but that the early purchasers decided to post so many detailed leaks about the game’s secrets.  How do you feel about the leaks?  Did they make you want to punch Blastoise in the face, or bite charmander in the jugular?  Did you let them slide off your back like a sleeping snorlax on a shady bridge?  Or did you jump up and down like a Pikachu and a bottle of ketchup?

Half Life 3 Trademark Confirmed

According to Office for Harmonization in the Internal Market, Valve filed for a tradmark for Half Life 3 on September 29th, 2013.   However, the trademark was only filed in Europe.  Is this just Valve’s way of trolling us before the launch of the SteamOS, or could this mean that Half Life 3 is finally confirmed?
