Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus Reveal Trailer – E3 2017: Bethesda Conference

I have fallen off keeping up with all the new video games coming out. I use to regularly watch E3 every year.  So it is nice to see a game that gets me excited to sit down and play again.

Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus sure does look like it will be the game for me. Bethseda rolled out the trailer at this years E3 and WOW. I have been a fan of the Wolfenstein games for years. I purchase Wolfenstien: The New Order well to be frank because it was cheap. Dam what a great game. Now from this excellent trailer combining live action and action from the game dam this looks fun.

B.J. Blazkowicz is still alive and with new friends, toys and new abilities.  Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus takes place in 1961. Players will journey from Roswell, New Mexico to gator-filled New Orleans to post-nuclear New York.

“Equip an arsenal of badass guns, and unleash new abilities to blast your way through legions of advanced Nazi soldiers, cyborgs, and über soldiers in this definitive first-person shooter,” Bethesda said in an official announcement.

Hey Poppers

I fellow I know thru the guys at Big Kids Playground,Dougie (aka Scruffy Doug) wrote a little piece about his thoughts on being a geek. So take sometime here and have a read. I am sure you know what he is talking about.

If you are reading this, there is a fair chance that, like me, you are a Geek. We are Geeks. We are happy to be Geeks. We are proud to be Geeks. And most importantly, we don’t deny that we are Geeks. The world however, still seems surprised at this. 
Despite the current global success of the Batman, X-Men, and Avengers franchises, the public opinion of being a comic book fan is still a negative one, with the term “geek” often used as a put-down. Admitting that you are a grown man who reads comic books or who plays video games can still get the same reaction as saying that you keep all your toenail clippings in a jar in the kitchen. Watching the mind-numbing, pointless, fly-on-the-wall garbage that is Big Brother, X-Factor, Jersey Shore, The Kardashians etc is somehow accepted as being normal, yet reading a graphic novel with well written plots and interesting characters is deemed weird. And as such, we geeks are deemed weird.
So, are we weird? Are we saddo’s with no lives? Are we some sort of underclass that look and act differently to the general public? Do we all fit the standardised “geek” image? Well, sure, I’ve no doubt that there are some of us out there who do fit the standard image of a “geek”. You know, single, long greasy hair, probably an unkempt patchy beard (with the remains of 3 day old biscuits and noodles still stuck in it), possibly thick glasses, spotty complexion, a waist band that is longer than the wearer is tall, uses computer code to talk to friends, and lives in parents loft/basement despite approaching 40y/o. Basically, Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons.
However, for me personally, and I’m sure for a large number of my fellow geeks out there, this image couldn’t be further from the truth. I’m early 30’s, married with 2 kids, live in my own home, I don’t speak fluent Klingon, I don’t have every episode of Big Bang Theory under my TV, my appearance is closer to that of a thug (shaven head, tattoos, goatee beard), and I’m more than happy to get my hands dirty by getting stuck in to any DIY or car repair jobs that need doing. But that all said, I still love my tech, my games, and my comics/movies. And I’m still extremely proud to declare that I am a geek.

Hello, I’m pleased to meet you!

 

Hi, and thankyou for taking the time to read this entry on the Pop Culture Cafe blog!

My name is Paul and I’m a long serving geek from the UK who loves video games, comics and movies, and I’ve been invited by the host of Pop Culture Cafe, John, to write a few posts every now and again.  This first post is really just to break me in and get to meet you all, next time I’ll be talking about some of the comics I’ve been reading, like the Spider Island or Infinity Gauntlet collections, or maybe about the pre-release demo builds of Destiny and Battlefield: Hardline I’ve been spending time with on the Playstation 4!

Whatever I come back with, I hope you’ll share with us the passion and enthusiasm for all the cool stuff that makes being a geek such a pleasure and make sure you listen to John’s Pop Culture Cafe Podcast for the latest news, or my own show, Big Kids Playground, for a relentless tornado of poor-taste humour and the best TV, movie and video game recommendations, available on iTunes, Spreaker.com, Tune In Radio and Stitcher!

Bye for now!

One of my favorite Podcasts I listen to is Big Kids Playground. Paul and Dave give you a shit load of information on all kinds of pop culture stuff and a some great laughs. I had the pleasure of talking with Paul about comics on my podcast. Hopefully I can hook up the Dave one day to talk about British TV and films. If you should take a moment and download a episode I am sure you will come back for more.

Just recently Michael Murphy a friend of Dave created a great little animation for a recent episode and it is hilarious.
