Here are my thoughts for July regarding games and movies.
After E3 taking place last month and hyping up the rest of the year for gaming, July brings 3 games I am looking forward to. Releasing on the Nintendo Switch on the 21st, is Splatoon 2. Splatoon was a great game so I am looking forward to the sequel. Releasing on the 28th, for the Nintendo 3Ds, are Hey! Pikmin and Miitopia. While I most likely won’t be picking up those games on release day, I will be purchasing them later on.
Starting off the month with a Marvel movie in Spider-Man: Homecoming releasing on the 7th. A few weeks later on the 21st, comes Dunkirk. Being directed by Christopher Nolan and being from the World War II era is very intriguing to me. Looking forward to this followup movie releasing on the 28th, An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power, to see the progress of what has happened as the result of the first film. Being released over 10 years later, it will be interesting to see a new take on what is being discussed.
Watch live video from StockStream on www.twitch.tv
StockStreamLive is a social experiment billed as “The worlds first cooperative multiplayer Stock Market game using real money.”. Mike Roberts, the creator put $50,000 into an account on Robinhood which stocks being voted on by the channel’s chat. Think Twitch Plays Pokemon but using real money in a stock market. The experiment ends when the account reaches a balance of $25,000, so a loss of half the starting amount.
While I don’t participate in chat for the channel, I routinely monitor the portfolio and twitter feed @stockstream. It is interesting to see the gains and losses that Mike is getting with this experiment. Currently at the time of publication Mike is up over $1,000.
Currently with this month, not a lot of releases that I am looking forward to. But with E3 coming up later this month, I am eagerly awaiting what will be announced during that for the year to come. One game I am looking forward to is being released on June 30th, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. This game features Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot Warped. While I didn’t play Crash Bandicoot as a kid, I am looking forward to this release so I can experience those games now.
Two movies releasing on June 2nd, Wonder Woman and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie. Looking forward to the next installment in the DC Universe, when Wonder Woman comes out. Having ran the Captain Underpants books as a kid, I am curious on how the movie will turn out. Later in the month on the 21st comes the release of Transformers: The Last Knight. Having seen the rest of the movies, I am looking forward to watching this one. At the end of the month, brings the release of Despicable Me 3. Being a fan of the minions, I can’t wait for this release.
Three releases I am looking forward to this month. The first release coming from All Time Low on June 2nd, entitled Last Young Renegade. One week later, comes the release of Wolves by Rise Against. Near the end of the month on the 23rd comes the release of Evolve by Imagine Dragons.
Check out my thoughts on last month.
May is shaping up to be a slower month than the previous months.
This month doesn’t have any appealing releases for me in regards to video games. Just more hype building for E3 in June.
After seeing the first movie, I am looking forward to watching Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which released on May 5th.
Later in the month on May 26th, releases 2 movies which I am intrigued by, they are Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Baywatch.
4 years after their last album, I am looking forward to Paramore’s next album entitled After Laughter, releasing on the 2nd of May.
March was a great month in terms of releases. April isn’t looking to bad either.
After a strong release in March of the Nintendo Switch, the Switch has 2 games I am looking forward to in April.
Releasing on the 25th and 28th are Puyo Puyo Tetris and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. Mario Kart 8 is one of the main reasons I had originally bought my WiiU, the fact that it is getting updated is going to be great. Puyo Puyo Tetris seems like a great party game and brings back memories of playing Tetris with friends.
On April 18, The Disney Afternoon Collection is being released. This will bring back memories of gaming from my youth.
April brings the release of 3 movies I am looking forward to see.
7 – Gifted
14 – The Fate of the Furious
28 – The Circle
On April 21st, 2 albums are being released that I am excited to listen to. 21 8 by Incubus and Love and War by Brad Paisley.
