Spooky Story Time

Another submission for this week’s challenge! Check out Sincerely Incognita’s “Extraterrestrial” response!

sincerelyincognita

Shout out to Luna from GamersUnitedGG for coming up with this guest blog challenge. This had me raking my brain on how to get my word count down low enough to meet the qualifications for this challenge and I’m STILL 25 words over. Haha. See the prompt below and enjoy!

Prompt: You are transported into a video game where you are inside of a Haunted Mansion. You hear a strange noise and open the door to find what?


I didn’t know where I was or how I got here, but I knew for sure I couldn’t deny the opportunity to conquer this haunted mansion. A light shove on the door proved adequate enough to send the typical creaking sound of old construction squealing through the house. I was just thankful I didn’t need to roam around the yard looking for some secret key to open the house. Clearly this wasn’t…

WWE Hell In A Cell Preview and Predictions!

Happy Saturday Novas! It’s Saturday and there’s a preview post, that can only mean 1 thing. Tomorrow is a WWE Payperview event! This time Smackdown Live takes their best Superstars to the stage to battle for supremacy. Hell in A Cell will be a few rematches from Summerslam and we will have 2 matches inside of the cell. Let’s jump into my thoughts and predictions!

Chad Gable & Shelton Benjamin vs The Hype Bros-  hiac8 I’m actually looking forward to this match. Shelton Benjamin has a great style of strength and speed and now being paired with Chad Gable, the tag team should be very entertaining. Prediction: Chad Gable and Shelton Benjamin should win this! 

Smackdown Women’s Championship Match-  hiac3 Champion Natalya will take on Charlotte for the Women’s title. I didn’t watch the build up for this match so I don’t have a preview for it. Let’s just jump into the prediction. Prediction: I’m thinking Charlotte is going to take the match and become champion!

Smackdown Tag Team Championship Match- hiac4 This will be the first rematch of the Summerslam event. Champions; The New Day are set to defend their titles against The Usos in the cell! This rivalry has been one of the more entertaining ones for me. From the rap battles to the last rights, both the New Day and the Usos have stepped up on the mic and in the ring. It all ends at Hell In A Cell, inside of the cell. I can see both teams elevating each other once again. Prediction: I see the New Day retaining their titles and moving on to the next tag team.

WWE World Championship Match-  hiac2 This will be the 2nd rematch of Summerslam Champion Jinder Mahal taking on the King of Strong Style Nakamura. Mahal has been picking and prodding at Nakamura for a while now. Nakamura comes with a high octane style and kicks that can render any Superstar helpless. But will he be champion? Prediction: I have to go with Nakamura winning. I want him to win so bad lol. 

United States Championship Match-  hiac5 The United States match will be between champion AJ Styles and Baron Corbin who has been brooding around WWE for weeks. Between the interferences with the Tye Dillinger matches, the embarrasment of losing his Money in the Bank contract and the disrespect for the title, Baron Corbin is finally set to take on AJ Styles 1 on 1Aj Styles praises Corbin’s ability but disgraces his attitude, referring to Corbin as a Superstar that tries to take shortcuts. Prediction: Aj Styles will retain his championship.

Bobby Roode vs Dolph Ziggler – Hiac6 The battle of the entrances. GLORIOUS!!!!! Dolph Ziggler has been funny entering the Smackdown Live ring with various entrances, so why not pit him against one of the most infectious entrances out there? Ziggler is taking the same route as he did with Nakamura, threatening to expose Roode for the fraud that he is. Ziggler is a great test for Roode to solidify himself on SD Live and hopefully move on to bigger and better roles. Prediction: Bobby Roode will win this match which is GLORIOUS!!!

Randy Orton vs Rusev  – hiac7 I have no idea how or why this match is even a thing. I didn’t watch the buildup for this match so I will just comment my prediction. Prediction: I wouldn’t mind if Rusev picked up the W Here.

Shane Macmahon Vs KO- hiac1 From any of my previous previews that featured Shane Mcmahon, you might recall my disdain for him in matches. I honestly feel like there is great talent on Smackdown and they need to be utilized instead of Shane feuding with Superstars… again.  KO hit it on the head, Shane NEEDS to be involved and while the fans love seeing him take death defying risks, we need to be exposed to better quality matches for the talent on the roster. Enough complaining lol, this match is set to be entertaining with Shane’s lack of fear from jumping from high places. It’s a falls count anywhere match so I am anticipating that the match will be pretty good. Since it is falls count anywhere, look for KO and Shane to wander through the crowd during the match. Prediction: I believe Shane will win this match.

Side Note: I have come across 2 really great WWE bloggers that are just getting started. Check them out for interesting posts and predictions!

That’s the line up for the PPV. Who are you taking in the matches? What surprises if any, do you think will happen? Let’s talk Hell in a Cell!

Favorite Video Game Duos!

Happy Friday Novas and thank you for reading today’s post! A duo is a team of 2 that, when working together, creates a fantastic tandem! Duos work well individual, but when they team up the results are impeccable and that’s what today’s post will highlight; Video game duos! I’ve compiled the responses from our blogging buddies and we’ve come up with our favorite gaming duos!

Baird and Cole Train (Gears of War)-

cole

The duo of Baird and Cole Train in the Gears of War franchise is one of my favorite all time duos in video game! Baird is the sarcastic engineer while Cole Train is the charismatic brawn of the Gears. When they are paired together on 2 Player missions, the banter between the 2 is one for the ages! Cole Train points out the obvious while Baird uses his cynical views on the depleting humanity to try and lighten the mood. This duo works well because you have the classic mix of Brains and Brute that makes a winning combination every time!   tumblr_ops5myZgHb1u7skpbo2_500  What’s even more fantastic *Spoiler Alert, Spoiler Alert* is that both characters manage to survive all of the series of the franchise, something must be going well for the 2!

Now let’s here from some of our friends. Guys, who do you think makes a great video game duo and why?

The Last GuardianKim from Later Levels takes an interesting approach to the question!

The_Last_Guardian_cover_art

In The Last Guardian, you take on the role of a young boy who awakens in a strange cave with Trico. Your initial attempts at helping this mistreated creature get you slammed at a wall and knocked unconscious; but slowly he starts to become used to your presence, even accepting some food and letting you pull bloody spears from his body.

Over time the protagonists learn more about themselves and each other, even finding a way to communicate, and their relationship is one built on trust. When Trico can’t move because he’s scared of the stained-glass eyes dotted around the environment, it’s up to you to smash the artifacts to pieces. When you’re trapped on the other side of a canyon, Trico mewls at you to give you the confidence to make the jump and catches you before you plummet.

The bond depicted in The Last Guardian is one of the most believable bonds between a human and animal within a video game, and this is what makes the boy and the creature such a great duo. Everybody needs a Trico by their side.

Sam & MaxKevin from The Mental Attic touches on a classic theme.

Sam_&_Max_Issue_1

A dynamic duo from the LucasArts archive that is often forgotten is Sam & Max, Freelance Police, despite that thanks to Telltale Games, they had a successful outing well past the demise of LucasArts itself, with three seasons of adventure games that you can only describe as zany, if not completely and utterly bonkers.
Sam & Max have been through everything together and they keep each other in check. Without Sam’s steady hand, the psychotic white rabbitty thing Max would surely destroy the world on a whim, but what is truly interesting and which the Telltale games showed was that without the murderous lagomorph, Sam becomes a brooding violent detective, crossing the line from hardboiled to truly vicious.
The Freelance Police are both functional(ish) but together they’re stronger, making up for each other’s weaknesses and keeping the insanity levels to tolerable levels, though nothing can ever contain the power of Max’s sarcasm.
We all could use a Sam in our lives to keep us in check and make sure we don’t do something profoundly stupid, but you know what? I could do with a little buddy who just cracked me

Banjo & KazooieLuke from Hundstrasse regards a duo that can trust each other.

banjo

I may have been late to the party having only taken the reins of these two for the first time earlier this year, but I can see why the bear and bird known collectively as Banjo Kazooie are well regarded as one of the best duos gaming has to offer. They form a single combined entity; Banjo merrily bouncing along with Kazooie safely tucked in his backpack ready to pop his legs out at the seams and role reverse at a moment’s notice.  kazooie  There is an unparalleled trust as Banjo carelessly drops on to his back in the knowledge that Kazooie will bear the burden and catapult them into the air. It’s an excellent demonstration of creative character design that shows why Rare was such a powerhouse developer at the time.

Ratchet & ClankChris from Overthinker Y has some fun with a classic pairing.

Ratchet_and_Clank_cover

A Lombax in a world with no more Lombaxes. A war mech who just isn’t cut out for war. A ton of planets needing to be saved from diabolical evil. It’s a combination for the ages, and the pair of Ratchet and Clank have to be one of the archetypical odd couples of gaming, having now saved the galaxy in more than ten adventures across fifteen years. Clank’s your logical but occasionally gigglesnarky robot who helps Ratchet traverse the world with his jetpack, while Ratchet just wants to use lots of very big and very ridiculous guns to blow up lots of stuff. It’s perfect!

Notable Classic Duos

  • Mario & Luigi
  • Sonic & Tails
  • Shrek & Donkey

There you have it, some of our favorite video game duos! Who are some of your classic video game duos and why? Let’s talk video games!

Hiya Novas! I am sitting here wallowing in miseray and trying to pre plan posts for next week and I just had a though to myself. ” I wonder which posts do you guys enjoy us posting on the blog? I have a few series that I love to write about, but I’m curious as to what you guys think.  thinking   If you wouldn’t mind helping me with my research, please comment below on the types of  posts that you really enjoy reading from us!

Ultimate TKO Series – The Ultimate TKO Series was my first bit of outside of the box writing on the blog. Each week I would pit 2 characters from 2 different games, stories, universes, movies etc against each other to see who would win this Fanfiction battle!

Memoirs of A Villain The Memoris of a Villain posts are journal entries from some of my favorite villains. I write as if I’m that person and I make up a story as to how, why and what the memoir would be, if they were to write one!

Netflix/Series review – Posts about the newest shows on Netflix or Game of Thrones!

First Impressions – The First Impressions posts are my mini snippets of a new game thoughts. It’s not quite a full game review (not like I do a full out review anyway lol) but it’s a taste of the game after a few hours of play.

WWE Posts- I loveeeeeee WWE! My predictions and Preview posts are a regular before each event, but should I add more WWE content?

Collaboration Posts- When I incorporate ideas and answers to questions with others! I like to collaborate with other bloggers and also my friends outside of writing.

Creative Writing Posts– These are my short stories and poetry posts. It’s pretty much my outlet as a writer when I’m feeling especially creative.

Hidden Treasures Posts- Hidden Treasures was another one of those early posts in whicl I would try and highlight a show, game or item that I thought was underrated. (I’m actually thinking of revamping this post to include interviews with others).

Throwback Posts- Those nostalgia posts about everything from the past! Games, TV, Movies, etc!

Discussion Posts- More interactive posts where we talk about games and stuff!

These are some of my favorite posts, but tell me honestly, What would you like to see more of on the blog? What are some of your favorite posts? Let’s talk!
