MCM London Comic Con Report October 2016 - BRAD



Brad
MCM ran this weekend 28th-30th of October and with that fellow Geeks flock en masse, dressing up in cool costumes or checking out all the cool merchandise

I've worked it out that since I first started going in 2005 and missing a couple, is that this is my 21st MCM!

Here's my report


What were you most looking forward to?


Experiencing the con over two days. This is my first weekend in ages where I went multiple days for this and boy was it worth it! Friday I got most of my shopping out of the way, so on saturday I was able to go around absorbing it all in and taking pics and trying out demos of assorted games

Pokémon - Frigo Returns



Brad

You may not have heard of Frigo Returns, I certainly hadn't

It's a counterfeit version of Pokémon Ruby with some altercations and a brand new Pokémon

Check it out

Pokémon Generations Blastoise EX Box



Brad

I got this Blastoise EX Box for the 20th Anniversary

I'm a bit disappointed with it as only 4 packs instead of 6 for the price, but got some pretty cool pulls

Plus I thought that this new set was going to reprint the old Gen 1 cards, but instead mostly features Pokémon from that series with new art

Pokémon TCG Nostalgia



Brad

So 8-Bit Girls Brother was kind enough to give me his old Pokémon cards

Back in the day I had a lot of these, and would mainly play Psychic/Electric decks or mainly colourless with some other gimmick

Let's take a look back at some of these cards

Booster Pack Openings - Power Rangers



Brad

I went to MCM London Comic Con which you can read all about HERE on Geek Mash

Whilst I was there I picked up some trading cards, some of which I already opened HERE

Plus Ross and Kayleigh already opened up the packs I gave them HERE

The reason why I stopped at that stall initially was because of all the Power Rangers logos calling to me from the box of goodies

SO I sifted through the ENTIRE thing to make sure I got them all

After that he said I have another box here to refill it but at that point I thought "Ah, perhaps 25 packs of Power Ranger cards is enough" so I declined :D

Breakdown of cards I got and doubles after the videos

Booster Pack Openings - Assorted Stuff



Brad

I went to MCM London Comic Con which you can read all about HERE on Geek Mash

Whilst I was there I picked up some trading cards

Ross and Kayleigh already opened up the packs I gave them HERE 

So here is a random assortment of cards

And just a warning, the first video features some HIDEOUS Rob Leifeld art, the link I mentioned is THIS one

Pokémon Shiny Gyarados Tin



Brad

So Pokémon tins

They're an awesome collectible but a bit pricy with only four boosters in them, and not all of them from the recent series

Thankfully Tesco had a sale on them recently and I picked one up

If you've never seen them before you get an awesome tin with a special EX promo card for the game, normally with different art to the normal card

12 May 2016

Dice Masters Civil War Pack Openings



Brad

So the Civil War film came out two weeks ago in the UK and a week ago in the US

What did people think of it?
Favourite scene?
Favourite character?

And with that came another Dicemasters set, I didn't get the Starter as at this point I have far too many sidekick dice, why can't they just sell the character dice and cards on their own?

Anyway, here's 5 packs I opened

Having Fun With Miitomo



Brad


So there's a new Nintendo App called Miitomo which is available on Android and Apple devices

You create a Mii, based on taking a picture of you or you can link to your Nintendo account with one already created and you can give your Mii a voice and a personality depending on certain traits



So in the app you answer questions and make comments on your friends answers too, and give them hearts which is how you level up your Mii and get new items of clothing to wear or money to spend on clothing

When you change your Mii's clothing it asks if you want to take a picture in the new outfit. It gives you a random photo but you can choose to edit it any which way you want so I've been making some pretty cool photos

Check em out :)

Gwen Stefani - This Is What The Truth Feels Like



Brad
I picked up the new Gwen Stefani album at the weekend and gave it a listen

These are the two different versions of the album pictured above.

The one on the left has 12 tracks with a bonus 13th track for the international release, and the deluxe version has 4 extra tracks plus the bonus international release so that's 17 new Gwen tracks


Best Single - Used To Love You

  • There's a reason it's done so well, because it's really catchy but also comes straight from the heart and the video is gut wrenching

Best Non Single - Obsessed

  • From the deluxe version of the album. It's a very Gwen sounding song when compared with the other two albums

This albums "Hollaback Girl" - Naughty

  • It's got a rhythm to it and a through line that's incredibly similiar to the song, but doesn't get half as annoying as HG

Overall Verdict

  • It's good but not great
  • On the other two albums, L.A.M.B. (Love Angel Music Baby) and Sweet Escape, there were tracks on there that were instant hits for me, really catchy and strong sounding songs and I feel this album misses out on that
  • The album as a whole is pretty solid but is the third best Gwen Stefani album. When that's out of three it's not really saying much
  • But I feel the writing is much stronger and more personal on this album which should be acknowledged
  • The deluxe album is the one to go with, as not only is it 4 more Gwen tracks, but I feel they are the strongest songs on there apart from the singles







What's YOUR favourite Gwen song?

This Week! - 01/02/2016



So this week I have been mostly


Playing the Witness




A phenomenally beautiful puzzle game

It's glorious and insane, clever and hair tearingly difficult until you have eureka moments and you get smarterer

One of those games where if you're stuck on a puzzle you don't have to worry, as there are plenty of other areas to explore and one that will stick in your mind as you try and solve a hard puzzle

I would say avoid any spoilers you can and just play it yourself and bring along a notepad and pen :D

It's available on the PC and Playstation 4
