Dark, gritty, and it is not another Nolan film.
Justice League: Gods and Monsters is a departure from your standard dark-and-brooding Batman films of DC. Gods and Monsters focuses on an alternate-Earth Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, with a fair amount of screen time dedicated to all three, without favoring one over another. The story is interesting, and delves into the background of the three heroes. While it attempts to have a mystery, the movie falls a bit short on overall plot, and it could have easily been another 30 minutes longer, just to delve a bit deeper on some subjects.
Overall, it is worth a watch. Giveaway after the break.

I felt pretty sickly today, so I painted a miniature. Pictures are after the break. A few work in progress pictures too. Warning – I have trembling, shaky hands, so my painting is not perfect by all means.

I recently returned to the frozen wastes as Anime-Expo came to an end this year. It was a fun trip though! Immediately upon getting home I preordered the new Godzilla game for the Playstation 4, based on footage shown at Anime-Expo. I have also been playing some Marvel Heroes recently.

Rampage resembles a real-world telling of Postal. A man with nothing going for him out to get his revenge on the world. Unlike Postal, Rampage does not use humor to take away from the terror.

Due to the increased cost of tickets for the Steampunk Symposium in 2016, the Fortune’s Ember is likely going to be departing from the convention. It is not with a fond farewell, but with muttered words and angry fists shaken. In other news, this opens up money and time for other travel and conventions! We are looking into better, more enjoyable alternatives already, so keep an eye out for future updates!

I hate craigslist. I always have, I always will. The people who think they are geniuses at negotiation thanks to watching Pawn Stars to the people who think you will mail things without getting payment, or the ones that expect you to spend $20 on gas to drive a $5 item to them, and waste an entire day doing it. Here is one of those stories.

Recently cosplaying has been extremely popular, bringing in many new people wanting to dress up as their favorite characters and be the center of attention at conventions. With this is an influx of questions, problems, and new thinking.

Amiibos are small toys, around 2″ tall, for the Nintendo Wii U and 3DS systems, that work as devices to unlock extra content in various games. They retail at $12.99 USD, and are rather fun little statues to have on your desk or entertainment console. The content they unlock is the equivalent of $0.99-2.99 DLC, but it is all fun… until you try to buy one.

Sorry for the lack of posting from your Most Glorious Captain. My health has not been the greatest for a while now. Anyways onto more important things!
I should be on the liver transplant list since it keeps diving further into the territory of trying to kill me.
It’s the holiday season! Don’t be surprised for some sort of festive Crimbo giveaway at some point on the site.
Not much in toy or game news, may post some stuff up about the Warlords of Draenor expansion for World of Warcraft.
Still no true sponsors for the Fortune’s Ember! Any interested parties can contact me. Looking for places that fit the content, toy companies and stores, anime places, and video game related things.
Two new cosplays done, I will be getting pictures of them up once the weather improves or I find a live scene to shoot at. I am also photographing for another website that I will not name here. Hope everyone is healthy and has a good winter.
