Sunday was a day for me to catch up on stuff. Well, on some viewing stuff anyway.
I played a couple of games of D&D Atack Wing today, trying out a couple of different legion builds. The one thing I realized is that troops such as the Hobgoblins feel almost useless in battle. I played a 4 member unit and watched them get wiped out in one attack. There could possibly be a way of using them effectively, but I would have to experiment a lot with them to find out, and I’m not sure I have the patience for that.
As for catching up, I finally saw Captain America: Winter Soldier, even after buying the DVD a few weeks ago. I have to say it was not all that bad. I liked what they did with Falcon, and even though I am sufficiently versed in Winter Soldier lore, it was still cool to see it played out on DVD.
I also caught up with Constantine, NBC’s show based on the DC Comics character. In this case, catching up was really only the fifth episode since I power watched episodes 2, 3 and 4 last Monday. I like the show, and not just because they actually got John Constantine right (READ: Not the Keanu Reeves version). Well, maybe because they got the character right. While the first episode was not really as dark as the comic (the original Hellblazer comic was extremely dark), there have been a lot of moments in the later episodes that really come close to matching the comic. It doesn’t hurt that the series has been riddled with Easter Eggs from the dark side of the DC Universe, from the inclusion of the Doctor Fate helmet in episode one to Jim Corrigan showing up in the latest episode. Including elements of the Constantine mythos (Papa Midnight) definitely help as well.
