@teh-g It premiered at 10pm this past Friday night after Grimm.
I had seen the trailer a couple times and was looking forward to it.
Its a retelling, darker version of Oz. Since it is a TV series, things will obviously be introduced slowly, and it will take a couple episodes or maybe even a short season to get into it properly and develop storylines.
My first impression though was a good one, I’ll continue to watch it. Best short description I can come up with is it is a combination of Mad Max and Wizard of Oz.
next on my list is the Grimm Fairy Tales series by Zenoscope. I actually started reading that a long time ago when I did collect weekly issues at my local comic shop, but haven’t read it since. I was determined to finish Fables first, because of the subject matter, I knew I’d get them confused. I tend to only pick up a graphic novel and read it every month or so these days.
Last night, as we finished our third heist together, the crew wanted to do something else for a few minutes, but no one wanted to stay on long enough to do any more intense missions. So we decided to do some impromptu racing, specifically one that one of our crew members had been wanting to do badly.
If you aren’t familiar, GTA has all sorts of races built in, with checkpoints and set tracks through the city, but what we enjoy is called impromptu races. You are just out in free roam, you set a waypoint anywhere on the map, and you challenge anyone that is in range of you to race to that point.
Well, what Marc wanted to do, was to race tractor trailers, with the trailers attached. So we all went out and stole trucks, then met at a parking lot, and… think about four goofy friends racing tractor trailers on snow covered roads. It was about as fun and hilarious as you would think it was!
I jumped in and played this a little bit last night. Its actually pretty fun!
Works like this-
You and three other players are dumped into a cordoned off area. Your cycle emits the light trail, but it disappears after a while, like the contrails of a jet airplane. Your bike can slow down, but even if you let off the accelerator and have the brake full on, it still moves. If you hit any of the light trails, EVEN YOUR OWN, you crash and lose a life. Each round lasts for 5 minutes, and you get 6 crashes. At the end of 5 minutes, the person that has the least crashes wins that round. If there is a tie, all who are tied go into sudden death, where the cordoned off area keeps getting smaller and smaller. All the ones I played were set to whoever wins two rounds wins the match.
The only match I won, was very exciting. It was on the docks. All 4 of us playing won a round, so we went to round 5, knowing that whoever won that round, would win the match. and it was meeeeee!!!
