Spotlight - ZomCats by Jack Strange (Beta Review)!

Image
Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement…

A while back, I read and reviewed, Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse by Jack Strange…. And because of that, I was given the chance to review a ‘Beta Version’ of the sequel, ‘ZomCats’. First off, I want to say thank you to Mr. Strange for given me an opportunity to read the unpolished version, it says a lot about the confidence of a creator to want to see some advance feedback. Now at the time of this review, ZomCats is slated for a release on Amazon.com in October of 2016, so, slight spoiler warning cause some things I do have to talk about.

ZomCats is the continuing adventures of Herderson, a cat that was ran over, killed, and resurrected as the world first Zombie Cat, where he was the pet / companion for Floyd Rampant… in the climax of Celebrity Chef Zombie Apocalypse, Henderson fled the chaotic scene and has ended up on the door step of Bob Slawit… and that my friends, is where the fun begins as a new Zombie outbreak occurs… but that’s not …

The Comet #1 - Comics From The Basement

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to COMICS FROM THE BASEMENT!

So people are still mad at me for being in favor of the Star Trek Fan Film guidelines… but hey, it could be worst, at least I’m not talking about the fact that every four years America because a bunch of lemmings… and I’m not talking about watching the Summer Olympics… but to hell with that… lets talk about comics book heroes of the lower tier...

There are many different Superheroes in the world of comics, but only a few really enter into pop culture and become icons, from Superman, Wonder Woman and Batman… to Captain American, Iron Man and Spider-Man… there is certainly a certainly a glass ceiling that is impossible to crack… and many Superheroes while creative and unique in their own ways who just end up on the sidelines … some of these characters would not be seen for decades if at all until someone remembers them and decides to do something with them. Hell at best they end up in the back ground or in a random group image for no…

Race Against Death - Doctor Who Tales From The TARDIS

Image
Hello Dwellers And Welcome To The Basement… It’s Saturday! Time for a new episode of Doctor Who: Tales From The TARDIS!

This week, we are up to part four of the Sensorites… this week it’s a ‘Race Against Death’… because as you know, Ian has drank the water of the Sense Sphere and collapsed at the end of last weeks episode. So it’s no surprise to see that The Doctor and Susan are working to figure out what caused him to collapse, instantly suspecting the water since they didn’t drink it, and The Doctor suspects it’s not really a disease the Sensorites are dealing with, but poison! This doesn’t totally go over well with a couple of the elders, who think this whole thing may be a trick, and knowing what the Doctor would become in the modern era, yeah that’s some profound thinking, cause since 2005, you basically expect the Doctor to have one his companions fall ill, only for him to cure them and then get the hell out of town in the TARDIS. The the same time The Administrator orders John to …

This Week... Mighty Morphin Power Rangers vs Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger

Image
These are my notes for this weeks episode to help me stay on topic... but I went a bit off my own script as I often do...
Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement… It’s Friday, and it’s This Week With The Superheroes!

However, this week I won’t be going over the news of the week, instead I’ll be comparing, contrasting and just trying to determine in my mind what was better, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers or Kyōryū Sentai Zyuranger (Dinosaur Squadron Zyuranger), and clearly both shows are in the front of my mind, as I played the two Sega Genesis Power Ranger games in the past week, plus watched all 50 episodes of Zyuranger.

So let’s get right to it, right off the bat, with the tone of both shows… Zyuranger is the story of five warriors who are awaken in modern times to do battle against the Which Bandora, who is accidentally freed by astronaughts… Power Rangers sees five teens recruited by a Wizard in a Time Warp named Zordon to do battle against Rita Repulsa who is accidentally freed by …

Lets Play & Review: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers

Image
Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement...


It's SEGA-Day Night! 


I know, I know, it would do better if I said that Saturdays... but any way, more old school gaming this week... as it occurred to me that I should've played and review THIS particular Power Rangers game first as opposed to the one based on 1995 movie... but then again, this is the 'lesser' of the two Sega Genesis based Power Rangers Game.

'Mighty Morphin Power Rangers' is certainly a victim of 'too many developers'... it's a bare bones 2D Fighting Game... which... seems like it would be a good idea considering the amount of action on the show... but even at that, there is a lot of wasted potential.

First the positives, in the single player mode, you get to play as all six rangers (the Green Ranger becomes available after you defeat him and the Dragon Zord)... while facing off against some of the shows monsters, in particular Madam Woe, Goldar, the Minotaur and Cyclopsis.... It's…

Billy Jack Haynes - Yay Or Nay For The Hall Of Fame

Image
Hello Dwellers and Welcome To The Basement…
And the return of the now bi-weekly Yay Or Nay For The Hall of Fame.

The reason for the change is simple, for with the WWE brand split and SmackDown moving to Tuesday nights, it kinda throws my week off in regards to how I plan out certain blogs and video commentaries. Plus all the big heavy hitters I wanted to discuss I’ve already gone over… so what I have left is a lot of mid-card acts with even more questionable chances for Hall of Fame consideration.



Such as the case of Billy Jack Haynes. For those of you who may not know, Haynes is consider to be one of the more… flaky of wrestlers in the 1980s. Breaking in 1982 after being trained by Stu Hart, Haynes wrestled for a about two months in Stampede Wrestling, with nothing of note happening other than he would team with Bruce Hart and Jim Neidhart a handful of times before heading down to Oregon and Pacific Northwest Wrestling…



Now there was always a natural connection with Haynes and the state…

Doctors Say It's Terminal Expanse - Lets Play Star Trek Online

Hello Dwellers And Welcome To The Basement...
It's TUESDAY! Lets Play Star Trek Online!

That's right, SmackDown is not the only thing back on Tuesday nights... granted last week was more of a bump in the slot to make sure I can cover as many different things as possible. But let's get to this week's mission, "Terminal Expanse'...

Turns out that the events that lead into the the first of the JJ-Trek films was an 'accident', it's not the true history... hell this mission basically calls the now 'Kelvin Timeline' something that was not meant to be in terms of the Star Trek timeline. On top of that, this ties into the Temporal Cold War and the Sphere Builders that were a big part of Star Trek: Enterprise... but things said in this mission, actually relate to things said during the Icoanian War and the mission 'Butterfly', in particular with Clauda, a member of the Tuterian race that was erased from the timeline... namely that those memb…
