Alcohol Will Not Be Out Later in LA

We're happy to report that Governor Jerry Brown vetoed the bill extending the hours of serving alcohol between 2am and 4am for the LA area. So, no getting wasted after 2am at bars.

Both the LAPD and Sheriff's department, teachers and parent groups, really didn't want to deal with more drunks. We believe the LAPD thought it would have caused an insane spike in deaths related to drunk driving, if it did pass.

It's no joke that people are still so stupid to drink and drive. It would have caused so many more deaths for those trying to have fun or just come home from having fun if it passed. But, it didn't.

Screw you, restaurants and bars trying to make another buck. If you were liable for those who drink and kill people on the road, we don't think you'd be wanting this change.

Game Hype: Super Mario Party, Lego DC Super-Villains, Soulcalibur IV, Taiko Drum Master & Tetris Effect

This October into November we're gonna have a lot of games coming out that you can enjoy with friends or games that can possibly ruin friendships. Yes, Mario Party is back. There's more than just that for your Halloween get-together or things to do for Thanksgiving, so let's look.

In order of release, we have, of course
Super Mario Party October 5
only on Switch

This newest edition of the game is up to 4 players and even a 2 on 2 mode. There's 80 new mini-games and some game that require all 4 players to work together. You can even lay two Switch's together to play out games like classic board games. Oh, and finally, online play.
Lego DC Super-Villains October 16
on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Microsoft Windows

How can you not love a game with so much DC Comics lore? And you get to be the villain? I'm not sure kids have ever heard of Earth 2 and the doppelgangers of the Justice League and the stories about them. They'll learn, they"ll learn... but you already know if a comics fan. From the same people who've been making all the Lego Games it looks like another fun play through that world.

Let's not forget a voice cast that has all your favorites from the WB cartoons, yes, they got Mark Hamill as the Joker. And good ol' Clancy Brown is Lex Luthor again with a number of old favorites.

Soulcalibur IV October 19
PlayStation 4,Xbox One & PC

Oh, we can't wait for the action and swordsmanship...and just wreaking havoc on other characters torsos and faces. We haven't had a new game since 2012. Now, we have one for this console cycle and we can't wait to play. 

We had so much fun creating our own fighters based on TV shows and cartoons in the last game. We can't wait to create fighters based on memes in this new one. How fast until Bowsette is created? Probably, day one.

Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum Session! for the PS4 and Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun! for the Nintendo Switch $49.99 each
November 2

We love Taiko Drum Master! We guess their keeping the name of Taiko no Tatsujin, for some reason. It's okay to call it Taiko Drum Master though. It's a rhythm game from Japan that you might be luckily enough to play at arcades. If you can find an arcade. The closes we've spotted and played one in LA is at a Round 1. 

The game have you pounding away matching your moves to the song. This is all beats to some of the latest popular songs from Japan. So, expect to play anime themes and Jpop.

These are both digital entries. People are clamoring for an included drum peripheral, but the only way to get one is to import. Still, the idea of playing on Switch seems like a lot of fun with its controls.

We're glad we're getting the latest in the series, but please sell some of the drums out here too, Bandai Namco.
Tetris Effect November 2
only on PS4

So pretty! Can't stop staring . Must move blocks. The eye-catching Tetris Effect comes to home console this November. It's probably the greatest looking Tetris ever and can be played in PS VR.

The name comes from the feeling the game gives you  getting so immersed in it. It sort of stays with you. It looks like if you do well enough the game will slow down for you so you can pull off a higher score.

Games galore for the next few months for the holiday season. You"ll have plenty to play around the fire or TV with a fire image on it.

Movie Hype: NHM 3D Theater Opens Next Week, Mad Heidi, Prospect & The Long Dumb Road

The Natural History Museum is opening up a new 3D theater on Monday. Though, there's a nice 3D theater nearby for the Science Center, the NHM 3D Theater will be showcasing other works. We guess the Natural History Museum just wanted their own.

From press release:
For the inaugural show, NHM will present the Los Angeles debut of Oceans 3D: Our Blue Planet, a coproduction by BBC Earth and OceanX Media, narrated by Kate Winslet. Oceans 3D tells the untold stories of the sea's most astonishing creatures and takes the audience on a global odyssey to discover the largest and least explored habitat on Earth, with the help of new ocean science and technology. Viewers will swim alongside leaping dolphins, sharks, whales, and sea turtles, dive around coral reef ecosystems and journey to the depths of the ocean floor and encounter some of the most extreme and exotic animals ever discovered.
Oceans 3D: Our Blue Planet
October 1. 2018 – January 31, 2019
Daily showings begin at 10 a.m. and start every half hour until 4 p.m.

Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County
900 Exposition Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90007
The price of admission to the NHM 3D Theater is $5, when booked online in advance, or $6 when purchased onsite, and free for museum members. 


The makers of Iron Sky are trying to fund a new movie, Mad Heidi. And well, it looks amazing for Swissploitation! Really, we're blown away, by the Swiss Nazis and ultra violence.

We also love one of the posters, this beauty from Matt Ryan Tobin. It's a limited edition and roughly is $70 in US Dollars and that's without shipping. 

So, this one won't be out anytime soon, it's gotta be funded and then really made.

Next we have an indie sci-fi movie we're excited for called Prospect, oddly coming out only in Regal theaters starting Nov 2nd. It's about a father and daughter space prospectors that get in trouble looking for a big score.

Finally, we have The Long Dumb Road. We just think it's a winner with Jason Mantzoukas (How Did This Get Made Podcast) acting like a total idiot in a road trip movie. He plays recently fired mechanic teamed up with a freshman going to art college. In Theaters November 9, On Demand and Digital November 16.
