I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas (White Christmas Review)

Master Wolf here! Well... after my first 0/5 review, I feel like I need something to bounce back from such a terrible review... but what... Oh I know! How about a classic Christmas movie! I know just the one! So lets go take a look at a very well known classic, 'White Christmas'.

The movie is about two soldiers who left the Army following World War II, become a successful song and dance team. The two soon meet two sisters, who also are successful song and dance team, and the four soon head up to Vermont to go to a lodge which happens to be owned by their former commanding General. However, the lodge is in trouble and to help the General, the four put on a show and eventually perform a very special Christmas show for the General.

I must say, for a film that was released in 1954; it really stands out with the other Christmas movies out there. It's also worth mention that cast of this movie is truly outstanding and even Bing Crosby stars in this as well as singing 'White Christmas' which I find that version to be really beautiful. The Song themselves are really catchy and you will fall in love (and even laugh) with the musical numbers. I think this movie caught the true meaning of what Christmas should be and makes you want to watch it again and again.

I will say that this is a must see movie and part of your collection to own, as this is truly a family film to watch during the holidays. The songs are true classics, the scenes are amazing, and even the story is truly touching. I will say it again, go and get this movie and if you can't then turn to AMC and find when it would come on. It's a Christmas that is truly classic.

No wonder why it's a ghost... (A Call of Duty Ghost Review)

Master Wolf here. ...I got nothing to say that this has to be... the worst game (or should I say the worst copy and paste game ever) I have ever seen and I don't know why people play it to begin with. It's no wonder why IGN said that 'Frostbite 3 and Battlefield 4 put Call of Duty Ghost to shame.' That's right... we are going to look at Call of Duty: Ghost... god shot me...

First off... the story really sucks... I'm sorry but it seems like they rehash the stories from previous Call of Duty Games and place them in Ghosts. I'm serious, I look at each other to levels and I can't help but saying 'wasn't that level was in (insert previous game)?' okay okay, moving to the 'actual' story; basically a fictionalize group known as the Federation (wait... Star Wars reference anyone?) which are made up by South American nations, have taken over US Satellite ODIN (again... another movie reference) and fired it on the US... now this begs a question... if the US have a Kinetic Bombardment Satellite... should they have verification if any space shuttles comes near such a weapon like that... just saying... anyways, they fired ODIN at the US itself (west coast) and soon the US is crippled and on the defensive... So know we follow two brothers, Logan (you control and never talks... at all...) and Hesh (seriously... that's his name... who came up with that shitty name), as they perform (and I'm not kidding) 'right of passage' by their father who is NO WAY A GHOST CAUSE I CAN ALREADY TELL FROM THE VERY BEGINNING!!!

okay okay... so basically they find out that someone is hunting the Ghosts (No they are not Ghost Recon, because they are more likeable than the guys in COD...) which so happens to be one of their own. (No... I'm not kidding...). So why is a US Spec Op defected to the enemy and hunting down his fellow squad mates... because he was brainwashed after being left behind after a mission years ago... yeah I am not interested in why the guy motives because it's dumb... I don't care... besides the ending to this game... FREAKING BULL!!!

I won't put up the 'spoiler warning' because... it's exactly the same thing from MW2... basically the guy comes back, stab your character, talk to you for a bit, then drag you off screen. However... he was SHOT IN THE CHEST AND WAS UNDERWATER?!?! How the flippin hell you survive that?! Please I want to know how one survives a bullet to the chest and being underwater inside a tram car!!!

so basically the campaign totally sucks... I am not even going to touch Multiplayer because it sucks too... it's the same goddamned maps from the previous CoD games and no matter what they do with 'character creator' or their 'perks' systems... it's still the same flippin game like the last games...

The graphics... Same flippin graphics at the last couple of CoD games... nothing impressive and a big freakin fail. Oh they were so promoting their 'Dog and Fish'... WHO CARES?!?! LOOK AT BATTLEFIELD 4!!! THEY DID MORE THAN YOU!!!

This is, by far, the worst CoD Game ever; it didn't even surpass the sales of Black Ops II and that's saying a lot. It seems that the CoD community has finally realize that they want something more than the same game, over and over again (or the copy and paste game). So I agree with that IGN said that BF4 did put CoD:Ghosts to shame... pure shame. It's no wonder why it's called Ghost for a reason, cause it's basically a game that doesn't even delivered. So while other games takes steps forward, CoD is only taking step backwards from here on out.

Lucky Charm? (Ashikai's Shamrock Review)

Masterwolf here! We all know what is a shamrock and what they represents like for me, I'm Irish, they represent St. Patricks Day and being Irish. However, what would happen when you have the name Shamrock as a title for a comic? Well you can forget anything have to do with Lucky Charms people, for this is one hell of a Ghost story! This is 'Shamrock' by Ashikai

The story follows Isaac (No! Not the one from Dead Space people!) who is curious about another student by the name of Samantha Rockman, as she has been bringing objects to class that seems to be glowing for some reason (One could guess they were misplaced at the Nuclear Power Plant or something that is radioactive.) So Isaac decided to follow sam to see what is up and realize he has stumble upon something that would change his normal life. Samantha is in turn a Gate Keeper, task to hunt down and retrieve everyday objects that have been mutated into monster like forms (wait... does that means my chair would turn into a monster?...). So after experiencing what Sam does, She asked Isaac if he would be her partner in hunting down ghost. For that point on, It's a wild ride.

I must say, the story itself is very interesting and while at first the premise of it (basically the part where objects turn into monsters) but once you get down to it, it can make sense since the object might hold something dear to an individual (like a teddy bear for example). There are also humor that I thought was really great and funny when we see our hero get into a situation from everyday school life to hunting ghost.

The Artwork itself is a Black and White style, but like the others I have reviewed before; This comic really brings out the best of Black and White style comics. The Details to each of the characters, the background, the creatures (the objects to say the least), and the landscape where it takes place.

'Shamrock' is really a great comic to read if you are in to ghost hunting stories. While at first the premise of the comic sounds a bit weird, once you get really into how the world of 'Shamrock' works, then you will understand and from their own; it only gets better. I recommend you all go read this comic!
