Pinball FX 3 Delayed on Switch

Back in September, Zen Studios announced that Pinball FX 3 would be launching that month for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.  When I asked about a possible Switch release, I was told they were big supporters of Nintendo, and then a few weeks ago, they announced Pinball FX 3 was indeed coming to the Switch on November 14.


Today, however, Zen Studios announced that the game was being delayed to sometime in December.  The new release date will be announced soon.

This announcement kind of stinks, but if something wasn't quite right, I would rather it be delayed than released broken.

I am a huge fan of Zen Studios and their pinball games (Marvel Pinball 3D was my eShop GotY), and I am excited to play this on the Switch, even if I have to wait a few more weeks!

He-Man And The Masters Of The Universe Magazine Winter 1988


Tonight, I am going to highlight a few of my favorite things from this magazine that I recently found going through a box of old books.  I also found the comic adaptation of the Masters of the Universe movie and another He-Man comic, but that's for another night.

Let's dig right in, shall we?

Halloween Movie Madness '17: The Dungeonmaster

October is finally here!  This year, it brings the long awaited return of Halloween Movie Madness!  I decided I needed to try and make this year special, so most of the movies on this year's list are films that I haven't seen before(and I will probably wish I never sat through half of them).

(1984)


I've watched this movie countless times over the years thanks to a VHS copy I scored from a closing video store.  Now, I actually own this movie on DVD! It's part of a four pack from Scream Factory. I've never even heard of the other three movies, but they seem right up my alley.

When I put the movie in, I noticed something weird.  All my life, I remember the credits starting first thing.  On the DVD, however, we get a cold open.  I was confused, and was telling my wife that I didn't remember any of what we were seeing.  Paul (our hero), was chasing a woman through a bunch of corridors.  When he finally catches up to her, she immediately disrobes.  Completely naked.  I really think I would remember full frontal nudity like that.

Halloween Movie Madness '17: HauntedWeen

October is finally here!  This year, it brings the long awaited return of Halloween Movie Madness!  I decided I needed to try and make this year special, so most of the movies on this year's list are films that I haven't seen before(and I will probably wish I never sat through half of them).

HauntedWeen
(1991)


When you think of Kentucky, what pops into your head?  Most people would say horses(or heroin).  Hopefully, after reading this, the first thing that comes to mind when you think Kentucky will be HauntedWeen (it was made in Bowling Green).

This is a movie that sticks with you.  Not because it was compelling, or extremely gory, or because it had any sort of message about society as a whole.  No, this will stick with you because you will be scratching your head about what you saw, or still laughing about how bad it was.  It's a terrible movie, but in all the right ways.

Halloween Movie Madness '17: The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra

October is finally here!  This year, it brings the long awaited return of Halloween Movie Madness!  I decided I needed to try and make this year special, so most of the movies on this year's list are films that I haven't seen before(and I will probably wish I never sat through half of them).

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra
(2001)

Lost Skeleton of Cadavra

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra was released in 2001, but you wouldn't be able to tell that from watching the movie.  This movie is both a loving homage and parody of the cheaply made horror and sci-fi movies of the '50s.  They really hit the nail on the head here, especially with the dialogue.  It is redundant, obvious, and it feels poorly written.  In fact, they did such a good job with the writing that if you didn't know ahead of time what they were going for, you actually would just think it was poorly written.

Here now are six of my favorite moments from The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra.
