Recently the WWE in conjunction with 2K Sports released a mobile Collectible Card Game on both IOS and Android platforms called WWE Super Card. Super Card, which is free to play offering micro transactions, requires an active internet connection, and pits a deck of WWE Superstars of your choosing against an AI controlled deck of another user. The mobile game has already garnered over 1.5 million downloads. Click below for my review.

First a thank you to my compatriot Philip for loaning me Marvel NOW’s Hawkeye Volume 1: My Life as a Weapon. Hawkeye has been a bigger player in the Marvel universe since his characters introduction in the Avengers film.

I know personally I didn’t care much for Hawkeye, or at the very least was ambivalent to his character (what’s with the original design’s mask??) but since Avengers Marvel has done a decent job making him seem relevant while maintaining the fact that he is a non-powered hero. I particularly enjoy that the majority of this title takes place at the ‘street’ level, with almost no involvement of S.H.I.E.L.D. or the Avengers.

Summer Slammed

 

This past Sunday I was given the distinct pleasure of introducing World Wrestling Entertainment to Porch Podcast comrades Phil, Doug and Producer Jeremy, who had not been privy to the world of Sports Entertainment since childhood. While Summer Slam turned out to be full of almost all entertaining matches – which I am very grateful for – what I believe I enjoyed most was trying to explain each character’s background and motivation, supplemented by introducing them to a whole new vocabulary of terms such as ‘Face,’ ‘Heel,’ and ‘Stable.’

After many drinks and pizza rolls consumed later, I believe the night has proven to be a success and I hope to get each of their opinions during the next PorchCast, or teased in the comments below. Whether this turns into a running segment, or a ridiculous twitch stream of us playing the upcoming WWE 2k15 video game, which is looking increasingly impressive, I’m quite pleased with how everyone got into it despite the source material being as bad as it is.

What I wished to talk about tonight however, was the reveal of the new WWE World Championship title, awarded to Brock Lesnar after his complete destruction of John Cena last night. This new belt, seen below, was created after merging the two existing titles, the former WWE Champion title, along with the the WWE World Heavyweight Championship (also known as the WCW NWO World Heavyweight Championship, or the ‘Big Gold Belt.’) I do have to say I like the new logo a lot, and this new belt seems significantly bigger than the old WWE title, however I’ll always be a sucker for Big Gold. Click below for a quick breakdown of the fight results.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Movie: The Review

 

With a three year old and my own childhood nostalgia, you can imagine my interest in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was fairly high. Between watching the new Nickelodeon cartoon and collecting the associated toys – for my son, I swear – my curiosity about the new movie got the better of me. It didn’t hurt that Megan Fox was in it as well. Warning: Spoilers below.
