Mobile Monday (31 Aug 2015): Mortal Kombat X Mobile

Been a while since I updated though I have been playing quite regularly..

There's a new Challenge Card up for grabs at the moment - Heavy Weapons JAX

Once again, it's way too easy and I completed in a couple of hours.

I have yet to level him up but that special skill of his looks real painful. Damage to the entire enemy team? Awesome!

The challenge came at a perfect timing as I was very close to the 850 souls for the Netherrealm pack. The extra souls from completing the challenge were a great help and I got the pack..

\My favourite faction is the Netherrealm so great to see some characters for that faction. Hoping to see more in the future like Kitana, Liu Kang and maybe even Shinnok.

Too early to say how strong these 3 are as a team but I'm looking to level them up for the Faction War battles. 

And.. Finally got this!

After many Equipment Packs, finally got this. A real advantage to have when you are starting with 1 power bar. Getting 1 of this was a pain, Fusion level X is going to take a long, long time..

Hell yeah! Got this in the daily bonus!

I think I have all the Gold Scorpion cards now.

Speaking of Daily Bonus, I forgot to login last Saturday and now I'm back at the start for the reward challenges. What a bummer!

That's all for this week.. I made it into the Top 2% last week in the Faction War Leaderboards but I'm sorta suffering from fatigue this week and I'm not doing so well. Hopefully I can squeeze in enough games to get at least 1 rare card.

Do tell me how's your progress been? Any new cards? What are you aiming for?

Assassin's Creed Comic Variant Covers revealed

In true Ubisoft fashion, we have several variant covers revealed for the first issue of the upcoming Titan Comics' Assassin's Creed comics..

Numbered A to D.. these are the variant covers confirmed.

Edit (Missed out 1, thanks Mathieu!) : Numbered A to E.. these are the variant covers confirmed.

Cover E is a blank cover and is going to look the most amazing, because yours truly is going to draw his own cover art!

and then there's 1 more which is listed as Prime.. Not sure what this means though..

Great-looking art, don't forget to check with your retailer on how to get them all!

Not forgetting, Issue #2's cover has also been revealed!

I spot a 'Cover A' on this as well, so we just might get more variant covers for the next issue!

This is a 5-part comic series but looks like they will be selling a lot more than that, based on the variants..

Happy collecting guys!

Assassin's Creed Movie first look and details

So, it's true after all. The Michael Fassbender AC movie is real! 

Just kidding.. of course I know it was real for a long time already.. It's just that with so many rumours, changes and cancellations over the past year or more, I really didn't know what to believe anymore. It was more of a "I'll believe it when I see it".

But here it is.. Our first official image from the movie of none other than Michael Fassbender in the Assassin outfit.

About the Outfit..

"While the movie’s story isn’t based on any specific Assassin’s Creed game, the movie’s costume design team has made every effort to stay true to the historically-slanted visual style of the series. “I have much respect for the historical accuracy and vast characterization represented in each game,” says Sammy Sheldon Differ, costume designer on “Assassin’s Creed”. 

“This has been a fantastic starting point to understand what is needed to be faithful to the artistic content and begin creating our film world. Bearing in mind this rich base, I have used our period of 15h century Spain, with its strong influences of Moorish deco, to give the Assassin’s looks a nomadic warrior personification."

and the first details of the movie..

Michael Fassbender takes on the role of Callum Lynch who discovers that he is a descendant of the secret Assassins society through unlocked genetic memories that allow him to relive the adventures of his ancestor, Aguilar, in 15th Century Spain. After gaining incredible knowledge and skills he’s poised to take on the oppressive Knights Templar in the present day. 

Also starring Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises), Michael Kenneth Williams (12 Years a Slave), and Ariane Labed (Before Midnight), cameras start rolling for Assassin's Creed on Monday. Filming is set to happen in Malta, London, and Spain

Callum Lynch is a character created specifically for the movie and the movie itself isn't based on any of the games. Instead, it is an addition of new characters into the same world.

I like what I'm seeing and hearing at the moment. With a good cast of actors, this has the potential to be a great movie. Let's hope for the best!

New Darksiders Merchandise coming for Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition

This news was apparently shown at Gamescom 2015 but I totally missed it! But thanks to friends, like Brandon Gould, who share stuff with me, I'm now sharing this with you guys..

Some Darksiders 2 merch were shown at Gamescom 2015, in anticipation of the Darksiders 2: Deathinitive Edition release on Oct 6 2015..

A Death Mask..

Looks a little creepy with that hair but kinda cool..

And a mini Death Statue

For some reason, it looks huge but stores that have already listed it, states it as 26cm (~10 Inches). That's quite similar in size to the standard CE statues, like UbiCollectibles' ones.

Deathinitely like this pose a lot better than the Project Triforce one, that has him hunched over. Plus, the price would be a lot more affordable. Getting tight with so many collectibles these days..

There just has to be a matching War statue to accompany this one. Hoping this sells well to warrant that and more importantly, the Deathinitive Edition getting good sales to push for a Darksiders 3.

After a long time, I'm very glad to see Nordic Games pushing forward with the franchise. Looking to see the rest of the Horsemen get their own games.

I urge you guys to check out the game this Oct 6 if you haven't already. One of the best fantasy plots that I have really enjoyed. A wonderful creation by Joe Mad himself, I'm hoping for him to return to complete his baby!

Once again, thanks to Brandon Gould for sharing this with me. Do check out his Facebook page where he does unboxing videos of many Gaming Collectibles, right here at Game Loot.

PCS Collectibles' 1/4 Klassic Jade Collection pics

And now for Jade.. this one came as a EX to Mileena but you can't really call it a EX actually. Either way, I had to get both..

The Art box..

This one came in a brown shipper box as well..

Just 200 pieces made, I must be pretty lucky to own one.. #160 of 200!

Again, great to see the numbers tallying..

Before unboxing..

Those white gloves were in the box again..

And here's Jade!

Again, very nicely painted. No defects that I noticed. A friend did mention that the skin tone is rather flat and yes, I have to agree with him. A rather large drop in quality as compared to Goro, which was remarkable.

As I unboxed Jade, I noticed a stark difference in the skin tone, Jade's a couple of shades darker than Mileena and it's obvious even without putting them together. Pics on that later..

No issues in the fabric here as well.Very pleased with that.

The staff is made of real metal as far as I can tell, and is rather long. Almost the same height as Jade herself.

Critics can argue that Jade is pretty much a repaint of Mileena but that's what the Klassic characters looked like. The weapons make a huge difference to give them some variety. 

Another feature is the ass.. I can't say for sure but it sure does look as if Jade's hip and ass area is just slightly bigger than Mileena's. Not sure if the skin tones are giving the illusion or if it is definitely true.

Either way, let's see some shots of the ladies together..

Yes, definitely a noticeable difference in skin tone between the two.

2 great additions to the Klassic line, it's definitely growing now after a slow start.. Can't wait for a couple more to be released and it's going to look awesome altogether!
