For Honor – Complete Achievement List (Xbox One, PC – 2017)

I’m going to be totally honest…..I have no idea what’s going on with For Honor.  I’ve watched it develop since E3 and the entire idea seems to be, “What if knights, samurais, and vikings just started whomping on each other?”  Could be a lot more complex.  Maybe there’s an angsty viking who just wants to prove to his samurai dad and knight mom that he’s just as darn good as the rest of the….no there’s not, but you probably get to whack each other with period appropriate weaponry.  Ubisoft’s For Honor is an Xbox/Windows 10 exclusive and is out today.  Cheevos below courtesy, as always, from the peerless, the wondrous, the needy gamer’s sanctum online: xboxachievements.com.

Trailer Time: Vikings Season 3 Trailer (History Channel – 2015)

The History Channels violent, authentic-feeling saga of a band of Vikings is amazingly addicting.  I went through the first season in one sitting and can’t wait for season two to hit Amazon Prime.  At Comic Con, the trailer for Season 3 premiered, even though THC doesn’t have a firm release date for the next installment, but best guess is you’ll be seeing axe-wielding Norsemen sometime in early 2015.

Movie Review: How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

How to Train Your Dragon 2
Five years after the events of How to Train Your Dragon, the town of Berk is a very different place than it was.  Instead of Vikings and Dragons warring with one another, now they live in symbiotic harmony; each viking having become a dragon rider like the boy (now man) who brought them together: Hiccup.  Seriously wouldn’t you try to phase that name to something a little more manly by the time you’re 20, which is how old Hiccup is as we rejoin the adventures of the dragon-riding Vikings of Berk.  So does our return adventure live up to the surprise hit that was the original?  Not quite, but it’s still a great deal of fun.

Trailer Time: How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014)

This is how you do a teaser trailer.  Gives nothing away, leaves no room for rampant speculation (other than we get to see that a fair amount of time has passed between films); just puts you back in the world and keeps you there long enough that you don’t want to leave and then BAM…release date.  I thought the first film was a ton of fun and the best animation of any non-Pixar movie I’ve ever seen.  This is going to be a treat next summer, and if you didn’t know, How to Train Your Dragon 3 is already scheduled for 2016.
