1997 Classic Turok: Dinosaur Hunter releases on Xbox One

Turok actually started his career as a comic book hero in the 1950s; but it was on the Nintendo 64 back in 1997 he got his big break as he chased dinosaurs around the screen. Now they are putting both of the first games in the comeback series on the Xbox One.

1997 Turok: The Dinosaur Hunter released on PC and Nintendo 64. A game where you chased dinosaurs with bow and automatic weapons. If this has passed you by; you’ll probably realize that you missed something amazing. Do not be afraid, you now have the chance to play it on your Xbox One!

March 2 – the date dinosaurs fear

The first two Turok games, Turok: Dinosaur Hunter and Turok 2: Seeds of Evil just recently (March 2nd)landed on the Xbox One. The games are updated by Nightdive Studios; which previously released these versions on Microsoft Windows in 2015 and 2017 respectively.

However, any major graphical update can’t be found here; as both games maintain their limited polygons from the 90’s. Turok 2, however, has a new multiplayer mode – if you fanzy that.

Turok, now with a better feeling – over all

In the remasters it’s now easier to see what lies behind the corners or at the horizon; depending on the structure. Even the lighting and resolution have got their distinct parts of upgrades; both of which make wonders for the visual and imminent drive of the mechanics. Already under the actual gameplay; I experience a noticeably better flow compared with the old console variants. This actually reminds me of an old casino classic I recently played; that had been re-vamped to work on today’s market (you can read more about it here: http://newukcasino.com/) The menu system has now been endowed with a range of options where the player can decide everything from details to sound.

Well done, Nightdive Studios

In summary, Nightdive Studios has done splendid  job of dusting of theese old jewels. It’s beautiful, weaponically imaginative, bad ass all the way out of the fingertips, and delivers with full force from start to finish. The strange and extremely frustrating level design can be an obstacle but compensated by the field function; to facilitate navigation in the landscape. For old fans, it is a sweet new look, and for newcomers; an updated welcome from ancient times. Turok 1 and Turok 2  is well worth the money but just remember that theese are games with mechanics and graphics that was created over twenty years ago.

3 Animerade DC-filmer som är bättre än DCEU-filmerna

Det är ganska allmänt accepterat att DC inte har haft jättehög kvalitet på sina biofilmer den senaste tiden. Något som de dock lyckats bättre med är deras animerade rullar.

Vi har sett en del “floppar” från DC den senaste tiden (Suicide Squad, host host); men på deras animationsavdelning har DC tagit homerun efter homerun. Många av dessa berättelser har fångat de komiska böckernas ikoniska hjältar bättre än vad live-action filmerna gjort under det senaste decenniet.

Om Justice League lämnade en dålig smak i munnen; kommer dessa filmer få tillbaka din kärlek för DC:s-hjältar.

Wonder Woman (2009)

Det är ett bra jobb att återberätta Wonder Womans ursprungsberättelse (eller åtminstone en av dom), innan den kom ut ur vägen för ett världsomspännande äventyr fyllt med romantik, förräderi och massor av mörk magi. Den sista aspekten är superviktig; eftersom magi och trolldom är starkt knuten till en hel del Wonder Womans berättelser. Något som både Marvel och DC hade problem med, (åtminstone före Dr Strange); är hur deras filmer hanterar elementen som kommer från att introducera magi som något med substans i  båda företagens filmuniversum.

Tecknade Wonder Woman löser detta problem, genom att satsa fullt ut på magin. Det finns inte många filmer som slutar med en armé av zombies som attackerar Vita huset.

Bonuspoäng för att skapa en scen, så ikonisk för Wonder Woman att även live-action-filmen måste ta anteckningar från den. Jag pratar med den kända glasscenen.

All Star Superman (2011)

Förmodligen är Superman den enskilde hjälten som gjort bort sig mest i DCEU. I serierna, (trots att han är en konstig alien); har Superman dock alltid haft en ödmjuk charm och karisma från uppväxten i Smallville.

Regissören Zack Snyder notera nog inte detta; så vi fick bara den konstiga alien Superman. I själva verket är All-Star Superman på många sätt motsatsen till Man of Steel. I stället för en lång, uppblåst, utdragen, ritad ursprungshistoria gör All-Star Superman det mesta rätt.

Batman: The Dark Knight Returns (2012)

Den som har även lite kunskap om serier, känner nog väl till Frank Miller’s The Dark Knight ReturnsDet är en av de berättelser som landar bland de bästa genreexemplen,  bredvid berättelser som som Watchmen och The Killing Joke.

Zack Snyder tyckte om det så mycket att han lånade delar av den till Batman V Superman, inklusive den ikoniska animationsstilen.

Dark Knight Returns är en dekonstruktion av Batman-karaktären. Det tar den bästa delen av hans personlighet, lägger till en tung skopa med salt och dumpar honom i ett äldre Gotham City; som inte tror att de  behöver honom längre.

Men en aspekt till att den här historien fungerar, var att man valde att gå sida vid sida me dden ikoniska Batman-serietidningen; där han kämpade mot brott, spöade pingvinen och gjorde alla de där vanliga superhjälte-sakerna.
