As Heard By Cortana #12

Hi Everybody!

She's back! Confusing-er than ever!

As part of my commentary lifestyle, I usually have a microphone plugged into my computer.

This sometimes means that Cortana hears things I say to my significant other that she thinks are intended for her.

As so, I present:

The Perils of Starting a Shared Universe - Ryviews RyPort

Hi Everybody!

For those of you following E3, you may have seen the recent South Park game trailer, The Fractured But Whole.

If you haven't it, I'd recommend it even if you aren't a big fan of the show (I'm not). It has some nice digs at DC and Marvel. And it got me thinking about shared universes in general. So I thought I'd go into a bit of an analysis of why The Avengers worked so well, and why Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice did not.

What's Inside The Box - Flash Game Ryview

What's inside the Box, by Bonte Games.

A written game ryview!?! What is this madness!?!

I'll tell you what madness it is. It's my madness.

And it's me trying to actually produce game ryview content again! I know you all like my movie ryviews (and if you don't, go to hell), but since the site is supposed to be "Ryan's Game Ryviews" I feel like I should get back to that a little bit.

Or not. We'll see where this goes. Anyway, enjoy...

Poe, You Look Different - X-men: Apocalypse - Spoiler Free Movie Ryview

X-men: Apocalypse, directed by Bryan Singer.

X-men: Apocalypse is the newest installment of the X-men movie franchise (now up to 9 I believe, if you include spinoffs). It is also the third entry in the First Class trilogy.

If you've read of the reviews, you'll know that they're mixed at best. Some reviewers say only fans will like it, some say no one will, and a small amount say it's pretty good. Lots of them complained about an overstuffed story, too skin-deep development, and a nonsensical villain.

I thought it was pretty good, although there were definitely a few missteps.

Ryan's Rycommendation: If you're a fan, it's a must. Lots of fan service and X-men funitude (it's a word, dammit). If you're a casual movie goer, exercise caution but I think it would be a fun popcorn flick for all of you.
