TOP 10: X-MEN MOVIE TIE-IN GAMES

X-Men movies have existed now for approaching seventeen years, and while they’ll most defiantly continue for a long time, they’ll do without the only actor who has appeared in all of them: Hugh Jackman. With Logan releasing this weekend and marking the end of an era for the X-Men film franchise, I thought it relevant to also…

WHY DIDN’T IT GET A SEQUEL: X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE

They’re at this point literally dozens, if not hundreds of characters in the X-Men universe, but none as iconic as Wolverine. He’s been the face of the X-Men film franchise since the original came out in 2000 and has been the only mutant to appear in every film, as well as to have their own…

TOP 10: WOLVERINE GAMES

NOTE: ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM 07/26/2013 Before I start counting down the top ten Wolverine games, I’ll give my criteria first. This is a list of WOLVERINE games, so no X-Men games featuring Wolverine are permitted. I do recognize that the character has been featured as part of an ensemble in well regarded games like…

REVIEW: X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE (Wii)

NOTE: ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM 07/26/2013 The Wii version of X-Men Origins: Wolverine is the only game based on the film to exist on another platform, as you can also purchase this game on the PlayStation 2. Right from the start the primary problem with this version is the Wii controller itself and I would…

REVIEW: X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE (PSP)

NOTE: ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM 07/25/2013 To but it bluntly, X-Men Origins: Wolverine on the PSP is not very good, but I do have to give credit to both developer Griptonite and publisher Activision. In Griptonite’s case, they developed not one, but two different versions of this IP and hammered out two completely different experiences.…

REVIEW: X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE (NINTENDO DS)

NOTE ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON COMICBOOKMOVIE.COM  Prior to their acquisition by Glu Mobile, developer Griptonite Games seemed to be the go to company for hand held iterations of super hero games. The company worked on games starring Iron Man, Captain America, Spider-Man, Green Lantern and two different versions of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. While some of their…

GT COUNTDOWN: TOP 10 X-MEN GAMES

I’ve enjoyed GT Countdown as narrated by Brandon Jones as long as I can remember, and today’s list is of special importance: The Top 10 x-Men Games. With the exception of one (the quite pricey X-Men Children of the Atom,) I’m proud to say I own all of the games on this list. Check out…

REVIEW: THOR: GOD OF THUNDER (XBOX 360)

Thor: God of Thunder gets a pretty hard rap. I’m sure it’s been listed on a couple of “Worst of” lists for the year 2011, and can be found heavily discounted in bargain bins everywhere in large quantities. So, is Thor REALLY that bad? Well….okay so Thor can be good. Is it really good? No.…
