Megacon 2017 Convention!

Happy Memorial Day Novas! This past weekend I attended the Megacon Convention in Orlando and this short post will show some of the cosplayers I met! This was my second convention going in cosplay and I was FINALLY able to complete my Lana Kane costume. Let’s start the post with a comparison of Lana and my version of her!

Artist: One of the things I loveeeee about conventions would be the Dealer Rooms and Artist Alleys. You are able to pick up awesome pieces to take with you and some artists will actually customize your piece in front of you. We purchased a Wonder Woman spray paint picture and the artist created it in under 3 minutes! Take a look!

Another great part of conventions is the people watching! Some many cosplayers from different parts of the globe arrive with their costumes. The normal characters appeared like Deadpool, Joker, Harley Quinns and Overwatch Characters. What’s even more amazing is that there were plenty of couples dressed alike as well. We seen Kirito and Asuna from Sword Art Online and Ariel and Prince Eric from the Little Mermaid!  Here are some of the cosplayers that I had to highlight!

Swagggg- On Friday we were able to participate in several events. These events concluded with us getting swagg to take home. We also received great coupons and deals on entertainment like Medieval Times. Also, I had to pick up a few things for myself and friends as well. Here’s what I obtained.

Thank you for taking a look at my convention weekend! We had a blast and I cannot wait until my next one! What did you think of the post? Have you ever cosplayed or attended a convention? Let’s talk Geek!

Throwback Thursday:Childhood Games

Happy Thursday Novas! Remember when you couldn’t wait to get out of school so that you could go outside and play in the neighborhood? I know that our current era is built around everything being technological and we see less children outside playing. This post is dedicated to my childhood and the games that we played outside everyday! Time to bring on the Nostalgia!

TV Tag– TV tag was a version of tag where you had to say the name of a tv show (not already mentioned) anytime the person who was “IT” tried to tag you. I remember playing in the neighborhood all of the time.

Hopscotch– hopscotch was a fun chalk game to play. You would draw the numbers 1-9 in boxes alternating from 1 foot hop to 2 feet hops. You would start at the safe area, throw a rock on a number starting with 1, and hop 1 foot and 2 feet up and down the board. When you were returning back to start, you would have to stay on the number above the rock and pick it up without falling. 

Curb Ball– Curb ball was so much fun. I’m sure everyone has played a version of this game where you would throw a ball to the curb on the other side of the street. Each person would stand on their respective curbs. If the ball hits perfectly and bounces back to you it was 10 points. Alternately if the ball pops off the curb into the sky, if the other person catches it they received points. First person to 100 wins. 

Mother May I – Mother May I was a great kids game to play in your driveway. We had a long driveway so the neighborhood kids always played in our yard. One person would stand facing away from the others and be the Mother. You would alternate taking turns asking if you could take steps. Bunny hops, baby steps, umbrella steps. Frog leaps, etc. Mother would answer giving you a quantity of steps or saying no you may not. The first to teach Mother, wins! 

What Time Is It Mr.Fox– This was one of my favorite tag type games. The person who was “IT” was known as the “Fox.” They would stand a certain amount of paces away with their back towards everyone else. Each turn, anyone who wasn’t the fox would yell “What time is it Mr. Fox?” And would take the number of steps mentioned. At anytime the fox could turn and chase everyone back. If you were tagged then you were the next fox. Many of my friends now have never heard of this game but we played it all through elementary and middle school! 

O.U.T Spells OUT – OUT Spells out is pretty much dodgeball with a twist. It is a mix of Horse and Dodgeball actually. The person with the ball would throw at any opponent, if you get hit then you recieve an O. Whoever grabs the ball next is able to distribute letters with a hit and so on, so forth. If you receive all 3 letters (hit 3 times) then you’re out. Last person in wins!

These were some of my favorite childhood games growing up! What were some of yours? Do you remember any of the games I’ve mentioned? Let’s talk childhood games!

WWE Backlash and NXT Takeover Chicago Results!

Happy Monday Novas! I hope that your week is starting off well! This past weekend we had 2 WWE Payperviews which were NXT Takeover Chicago on Saturday and WWE Backlash on Sunday. The weekends was awesome for WWE game so let’s get straight into the results!

NXT Takeover Chicago:

The first match was between Roderick Strong and the leader of SaNity, Eric Young. This rivalry started brewing after Tye Dillengers feud with SaNity concluded. Dillengers is now on the main roster of Smackdown. Results: Roderick Strong !

United Kingdom Championship match– Finally we get to see some more UK action with probably the best match of the weekend (I’m my opinion). This match pitted the champ Tyler Hate against rude, crude and lude Pete Dunne. After an explosive match leaving the All state Arena chanting “UK,” we have a new champion. Results: Pete Dunne is the UK Champion! 015_NXT_05202017ej_0689--23ec72a85c55459e0721ca9586f09152

Triple Threat for NXT Women’s Title: The triple threat match was between champion Asuka, Ruby Riot and SaNity member Nikki Cross. This match was set up by William Reagal after Asuka interfered in the number 1 contender battle royale. Ruby Riot and Nikka Cross remained (although I those Ember Moon was left too). Asuka came in and interuppted the match taking out the remaining women. This match was pretty good but I wasn’t a fan of the ending result. Results: Yep, Asuka is still champion 😞.  025_NXT_05202017ej_1143--2034bb74655a9729cee30a73cf581d94

The first main event match was between Bobby Roode and Hideo Itami for the NXT Championship. Roode, the champion was kicked in the face by the challenger Itami weeks ago. With the title on the line this match was awesomeee. Roode delivered the glorious ddt but Itami got up. Itami delivered the Go To Sleep, in Chicago so you know the CM Punk chants rained in the arena, but Roode got up. Results: Bobby Roode got 2 consecutive glorious ddts to retain his title!  034_NXT_05202017ej_1690--4eddf93294461ad37f984f77b3935a0d

Tag Team Championship Ladder Match: after a stunning event so far, the main event was a tag team ladder match for the championship. Defending champions Authors of Pain took on fan favorites FIT. The battle was messy and awesome with entry of close calls. Results: AOP retain their titles. But wait there’s more… Ciampa turns on his partner Gargano after the match and destroys DIY. 😢

Takeover was great but now let’s get to Sunday night’s Backlash! This was the Smackdown Live exclusive event and the first Smackdown special after Wrestlemania.

WWE Backlash Results

The first match was the official debut match of Shinsuke Nakamura facing The Showoff Dolph Ziggler. The heel turn for Ziggler has been one of the highlights of the WWE this year. On Nakamuras first night Ziggler interrupted saying that he has no idea why the WWE Universe chants for someone who hasn’t had a match (other than the dark matches not aired). He sought to show Nakamura for what he was, a fraud! Results: Nakamura wins!

US Championship- The United States Championship title match was between champ Kevin Owens and challenger AJ Styles. This feud began with the Super Star Shakeup that brought KO to The House That AJ Styles built, Smackdown Live. KO, aka the new face of America was making his demands when the phenomenal one reminded him whose show he was on. Results: KO retains his title by count out… AJ stuck on a table 😂😂😂. AJSTuck.1495418873.png

The next match was a feud between Corbin and Zayn. I like Sami Zayn but his direction right now with chammenibg the biggest Superstars,  like Braun Strowman, is getting a little old and played out. Same premise as before, the underdog from the underground trying to show his heart is bigger than their muscles. Results: Zayn hits an incredible Huluva Kick

Women’s 6 tag match- The welcoming committee of Natalya, Tamima and Carmella with Ellsworth did not take Charlottes entrance on smackdown Live smoothly. They decided to teach her a lesson by interfering I’m her matches. This put champ Naomi and Becky Lynch temporarily on Charlottes side. The women fought it out. Results: The welcoming committee wins with Becky tapping to Natties Family Sharpshooter.

Tag Team Championship match- The Usos and defending champs took on Breezango or the Fashion Police for the titles. The Fashion Police has been doing skits and making fun of the Usos culminating to this match. Tyler Breeze even started the match as a janitor which has the crowd chanting for his mop and eventually Grandma as he changed mid match.      Results: The Usos retain and The Fashion police are shamed.

Rowan vs Harper- not gonna lie this was my bathroom break. I really didn’t care about this match so I didn’t watch. Results: Harper won.

WWE Title Match- The main event was between champ Randy Orton and the new Maharaja Jinder Mahal. After weeks of battling the 2 met for a shocking match. Results: New champion Jinder Mahal left the arena and WWE Universe with their jaws dropped 😂😂😂. 

 

All in all it was a great weekend for wrestling fans. I was pretty happy with everything. What were your favorite moments? Did anything surprise you? Let’s talk WWE!

Happy Sunday & WWE Backlash!

Happy Sunday Novas! I apologize for the stop of posts last week. I ended up getting sick on Tuesday and have been in bed binge watching The White Princess and The White Queen on Starz (reviews will be coming on these shows as they’re absolutely amazing). Now I find myself out of town and completely spaced on creating my WWE Backlash predictions post. We are about to head to the beach so quick predictions are inbound with no explanation lol.

AJ Styles vs Kevin Owens- Aj Styles

Randy Orton vs Jinder Mahal – I want to say Orton but I have a feeling it will be Mahal.

Nakamura vs Dolph Ziggler – Nakamura

Usos vs Breezango – Usos

Sami Zayn vs Baron Corbin- Corbin

Harper vs Rowan- Harper

Six Women tag match- Naomi, Becky Lynch and Charlotte (Charlotte will probably flip).

Tye Dillenger vs Aiden English will be on the preshow. I’m hoping for a perfect 10 there!

These are my quick predictions for tonight’s event. I will have a full recap of the event tomorrow. What are your plans for today? Do you agree with my picks? Let’s talk WWE Backlash!

Ultimate TKO Tuesday: Poison Ivy Vs Swamp Thing!

Happy Tuesday Novas! After a long hiatus with the TKO battle series, I’m brining it back for Tuesdays! The inaugural Tuesday match will begin with Poison Ivy Vs Swamp thing! For anyone new to this series, in TKO battle matches I pair 2 characters (most of the time from different realms or universes) and create a fan fiction battle how I would imagine it. If you like this series, feel free to request characters that you want to see battle it out!

Swamp Thing is tired of the DC Universe! He’s heard about the Dark Knight trying to “Clean” up Gotham. 598dec4f164b69e847b5e9c804c311e4  While his intentions are noble, now he has to worry about a certain “Penguin” and Ice Man murking up his swamp waters. The new “tenants” arrived about a month ago with their schemes and even dared to freeze some of the foliage in their area to create a decadent ice facility. “I will not let anymore of this eco system die off.” swamp thing broods. “Something has to be done and the Dark Knight must be held responsible.”

“Ya know, Gotham’s been a little quiet lately, huh?” Harley says. She walks around the house running her finger tips across the counter.  harley  “Yea… a little too quiet if you ask me.” Ivy responds. She walks through the darkness as if she was modeling for Home & Garden. “Where is Batman anyway?” Ivy asks. Harley screams “Doll, Look!” Ivy runs over to the TV. The Breaking News… Batman has been abducted by a strange green monster. “Well we’ve lucked out.” Harley says laying across the sofa chair with her head over the arm rest. Ivy’s gaze is hardened at the screen. “Guess we don’t have to worry about the Bat anymore. He’s gone and got himself kidnapped.” Harley continues. The room is eerily quiet. “Doll?” Harley asks. She falls onto the floor and looks around. “Doll? Ivy? … Now where did she go?” A trail of flower petals leads out the mansion.

“You have destroyed my home and now I will destroy you!” Swamp Thing says to an unconscious Batman. As he goes to turn on the poisonous gas, a poisoned rose needle pins his hand to the wall. “Tisk, Tisk babe… don’t you know not to touch what doesn’t belong to you?” Ivy says as she walks into the room. Her long, flowing red locks cascade down her back. “Ivy…” Swamp Thing acknowledges. “What are you doing here?” he says. “You have something of mines and I’ve come to collect it.” Ivy’s gaze catches the Bat’s limp body. “I trust, he isn’t dead.” she snarks. Ivy uses the vines in Swamp Thing’s home to start unlocking the container Batman is held in. “He has upset the balance of my swamp! Banishing these villains here to destroy our eco system. You of all people should understand why I have to do what I have to do.” Swamp Thing says. Ivy smirks and nods her head. “Oh I understand and if it was anyone else I’d leave you be…. but as I said you have something that belongs to me and I’ve come to collect him.” Ivy snaps her fingers and the vines wrap up Swamp Thing. “This’ll only take a sec.” she says winking and walking past him. “You can’t have him!”

Swamp thing enrages and breaks through the constricted vines. He launches a devastating punch at Ivy sending her flying across the room.

Ivy rubs her head. “Ouch, is this the fight you really want?” she says brushing herself off. “Ye…” before Swamp Thing can finish his sentence another vine is smacking him in the face. Swamp Thing turns on the poisonous gas. “Ummm 2 things… I’m immune and you’re crazy.” Ivy laughs. Swamp Thing smiles at the plant Goddess. “The Gas isn’t for you.” Ivy’s eyes are ghost as she realizes Thing’s intention. She jumps to grab Batman but is quickly tossed to the side of the room by Swamp Thing. “Stop!” she screams. “hahahaha” a hoggish voice laughs through the green gas filling up the room. “What is this?” Ivy asks, staring at Swamp Thing. She can tell by the befuddled look that it wasn’t his call. “Allow me to introduce myself… I’m Hoggish Greedly and I have a proposition for you.”   1761523-hoggish01  The silhouette of a giant pig emerges with The Penguin and Mr. Freeze behind him.

“What’s going on?” Thing says. “Don’t you get it?” Ivy responds rising to her feet with tears in her eyes. “This was a set up from the beginning.” she says. Swamp Thing nods. “Since you 2 have embraced your dark side, some of us for a second tie huh Ivy? I think that we should become partners.” Greedly continues. “I refuse.” Swamp Thing says and turns off the gas. “Me as well.” Ivy chimes in. “Oh well it wasn’t a request!” Greedly continues and signals to Mr. Freeze. “No!” Ivy screams and uses her vines to push Swamp Thing out of the way of Mr. Freezes’ Ice Beam. She succeeds but is soon frozen herself. The lack on sunlight has weakened her. “Let her go.” Swamp Thing yells throwing toxic punches at his enemies. To no avail he is frozen after the brawl. The startled face of Poison Ivy and the defeated look of Swamp Thing is loaded unto a flatbed and carried out of the room. “I have big plans for you 2, big plans.” Greedly says. As they leave the room an unconscious Batman balls up his fist.

Video Game Tag

I love to see that people are actually participating in the Video Game Tag that we created a few months ago! I’ll definitely reblog and shot out the Gamers who have decided to play (P.S. we’re making a new one soon 🙂 ). Check it out!

Otaku Outcasts

I gotta thank my mansMattfor tagging me for the video game tag. It’s a rarity that I talk about my own interest outside of news, reviews and the like. So you’ll get the chance to know a little bit about me.

Rules:

  • Thank & Tag the Blogger
  • Answer the Questions
  • Tag Other Bloggers

What is your favorite video game genre (I.E. RPG, FPS, MMO, etc.)?

Which system do you prefer to game on?

Who is your favorite video game character?

Which game do you believe has the best plot?

Honestly I think the Mass Effect Franchise had the best plot in gaming. I say that because the player had the ability to alter the plot to an extent with their decision making.

What game gave the most hype but didn’t deliver?

The Divisioneasily didn’t live up to the hype. That game had the most bootleg damage model…

Call of Duty Global Pro League!

Happy Monday Novas! Thank you for reading today’s post centered on another interest of mine; Competitive Call of Duty! I’ve wanted to keep up more frequently with the Call of Duty teams, tournaments and standings as I have in previous titles since Call of Duty Black Ops II. The problem is that I really don’t like the new Infinite Warfare game (neither does most of the pros lol) so I haven’t been as focused on it this season. Recently (and by recently I mean the last 3 weeks) I have found myself dipping back into the world of Competitive Call of Duty. So there’s that… lol this post will be a quick recap and my thoughts on the turnout of the Global Pro League.

What is the Global Pro League?  For the first time EVER MLG (Major League Gaming) has answered the calls of the Pro scene and created a Global Pro Lan League! This is where teams will fly out to the MLG tournament center in Columbus, Ohio and play on LAN (no excuse for lag or internet connection here) in groups to determine the top 2 teams that will move on to the Season Playoffs. Pros are not only playing for top 2, 3rd place also gets guaranteed into Season 2 and 4th Place still gets a shot at Relegation.

cwl2

Tournament Format- Teams qualified for the Global Pro League at the last CWL (Cod World League) Dallas event. The top 9 North American Teams, Top 5 EU teams, 1 Australian Team. Teams were randomly sorted into their groups by a group draw and each week 4 different teams competed. The rules are simply, beat the other teams in a best of 5 series and place top 2 (by map count and wins) to qualify for Playoffs, Season 2, as well as COD Champs.

cwl

Group Red Week 1 – The first weekend of matches saw Team Envyus (NA), Splyce (NA), Cloud 9 (NA) and Mindfreak (AU) face off. Each team played each other twice in a best of 5 series. The rotation of game modes were the standard Hardpoint, Search and Destroy (SND), Uplink, Capture the Flag (CTF), SND. First team to 3 wins takes the match!  The Results: Team Envyus and Splyce take 1 & 2 respectively while MindFreak takes 3rd and Cloud 9 sits in last place.

Group Blue Week 2 – The second weekend was my favorite as it included my favorite Pro Player Studdy and his Team Evil Geniuses (NA). The other teams in the group were FaZe Clan (NA), FNatic (EU) and Rise Nation (NA). After a 0-2 day on Friday my team Evil Geniuses were looking like they were going to have a tough road to try and make top 2. FaZe clan were the heavy favorites and Rise Nation were as inconsistent as EG. The Results: EG TAKES 1st!!!! FaZe narrowly takes 2nd, Rise 3rd and FNatic 4th.

Group Yellow Week 3 – Week 3 consisted of Luminosity (NA), eUnited (NA), Epsilon (EU) and Millenium (EU). Currently known as the second best team in the world right now eUnited took Friday and Saturday’s matches very convincingly. This left them guaranteed with a top 2 finish. It came down to a hope and a prayer between Epsilon and LG to see who would claim the 2nd place slot for Season Playoffs. Between the final match of eUnited and LG, Epsilon had to hope they lost to the undefeated eUnited team. The Results: eUnited 1st, LG 2nd, Epsilon 3rd and Millennium 4th, as you can see LG won that final matchup.

Group Green Week 4 – Group Green (Anyone else seeing the irony of Optic AKA “The Green Wall” being randomly sorted in the Green Group #illuminate lol. This group was Optic Gaming (NA), Enigma 6 (NA), Elevate (EU) and Red Reserve (EU). Optic Gaming is known as the best team in the world right now and their roster consists of one of my favorite players. Two time world champion Karma (my first favorite pro because in Black Ops II he shot bodies rofl). This group was a little easy to call. The Results: Optic 1st (Shocker… insert sarcasm here lol), E6 2nd, Elevate 3rd, Red reserve last.

Season Playoffs and Prizes – The top 2 teams from each group stage will compete in the Playoffs for the $700,000 prize pool. Rethinking being a professional gamer yet? Not to mention the million dollar COD World Championships in August (That’s going to be in my home of Orlando Yay!).

Those are the teams going forward into the Playoffs. The bottom 4 teams will go into relegation where they have another chance to fight for their spot in these loaded tournaments. Do you watch Competive Call of Duty or Competitive Gaming at all? What are your favorite pro players and games to watch? Let’s talk pro gaming!

April Lootcrate Unboxing

Happy Saturday Novas! I hope your month of May is going well and don’t forget about Mother’s Day observance tomorrow! Today I will go over my May Lootcrate Unboxing with the theme of Investigate! Last week I did the WWE Slamcrate (Masters of the Mic) unboxing and you can view the post here! Let’s get into it!

Stranger Things T-Shirt:  20170512_070621  Each Lootcrate as you know by now will always include and exclusive shirt. This month’s crate included a Stranger Things T- Shirt. I have yet to watch the series and the shirt looks cool but I gave it to my brother lol.

Gotham Color Changing Mug:   20170511_045231   There was a cool Gotham Color Changing Mug included in this month’s crate. I’m not really a Batman fan and I thought that my brother would appreciate it more. Another gift to Kenny! This month’s crate may not be my favorite but my brother is making out like a bandit!

X Files Pencils & Sharpener:  20170511_045429   Yup… The X Files Pencil and Sharpener was included in this month’s crate…. Enough said lol.

Jessica Jones Figure:   20170511_045406  Each Lootcrate will include some type of figure or collectible. This month was a pretty cool Jessica Jones figure that is already mounted on my shelf. I admit I have not yet checked out Jessica Jones (may have to add it to my Netflix Series of the Week) but I love a great female crime fighter and she’s wearing purple!!!!

Feel Free to Use My Promo Code to save on your subscription! Lootcrate Promo Code

This month’s crate was a little lackluster for me to be honest. I’m very happy that my WWE Slamcrate arrived at the same time and was AMAZING so the disappointment in this lootcrate wasn’t as bad. I’m probably going to try out the LootGaming crates as the regular Lootcrates aren’t that interesting to me. What did you think of this month’s crate? Did you like any of the items included? Do you have any subscription services? Let’s talk!

Enjoy your weekend!
