All About JediXMan7
I just got my second platinum trophy! The first was with Mirror's Edge, and this is for Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.
It actually wasn't as hard as I thought it'd be. Certainly not as hard as Mirror's Edge.
The hardest trophy was beating it on crushing difficulty. But it wasn't as hard as I feared it would be. You tend to notice patterns in the enemy's movements.
I also beat it on crushing without using a sniper rifle, which added to the challenge.
I intend to write a review for Uncharted soon. Overall, I think it gets an 8.5 / 10 from me.
Here are my reviews for this past week.
Art: Ok. But Hope does not look the age she's supposed to. He doesn't do faces well at all.
I see a pattern here. First of all, she skipped from 7 to 9 during the Messiah War arc. Apparently, she'd grown up two years before X-Force popped it. And now, from the last issue (#16) to the current issue she's jumped two years. She's been living her life without Cable. While Cable, two years in the future, lived for a few hours and was able to meet up with Hope. That doesn't make much sense, but whatever.
7.5 / 10
Uncanny X-Men #514:
Art: Ok. Never really liked this guy's work, though.
I don't really like the Dark Avengers / Uncanny X-Men crossover, but it's all going to be good because: THEY'RE LEAVING SAN FRANCISCO! At least I hope so.
So, two X-Men teams: One to fight the "Dark X-Men" and one to fight the Dark Avengers. So far, interesting comparisons. But a question comes: who will they use to fight Sentry? If Osborn uses him, I mean. He might not for the sake of public image. I will be extremely pissed off if Daken beats X-23 (X-23 beat and almost killed Lady Deathstrike. She's a smart and tactical fighter).
It's apparent to me that X-Force takes place after all the other X-Men titles. Because Wolverine, Warpath, and X-23 are here. In X-Force, Warpath is possibly dead and X-23 is in HAMMER custody.
7.5 / 10
Blackest Night #2:
I like how Hal and Barry beat Martian Manhunter.
This event is so far great. I liked the scene with Aquaman. And Tempest appears to now be a Black Lantern (after he was killed by Tula or Dolphin - I can't remember which)
Pariah is back! As a Black Lantern at least. Pariah was part of the first Crisis on Infinite Earths and had a small part in Infinite Crisis. For some reason, I liked the character. I hope Alexander Luthor and Harbinger come back too.
I don't like that Spectre was taken over. It doesn't really make sense. The host maybe, but the Spectre himself shouldn't.
The fact that Dove was not brought back is interesting. They made a point that he was at peace, and therefore could not return. Hawk, on the other hand, was recruited.

Blackest Night: Batman #1:
First, Damian annoys me. Just felt like saying that.
It's interesting to note that the body could be "empty" (as in, the soul has not moved on to the afterlife and the person isn't truly dead. Just the body. Like Bruce Wayne). Deadman's corpse was brought back, but his soul still remained wandering the Earth. Interesting.
I see Deadman playing an important role in this, due to his appearance in both this and Blackest Night #2.
7.5 / 10
Green Lantern Corps #39:
Art: Pretty good.
The "Mongul Corps" are born. Mongul has taken complete control of the Corps. I can't wait for Sinestro to rip Mongul apart - and he had better.
Jade returns to haunt Kyle. Interesting. I look forward to seeing what comes of this.
I feel like this issue contained some stuff seen in Blackest Night #1.
When looked at by a Black Lantern, Guy Gardner glowed red. Black Lanterns see the colors of the corps they could belong to. I find it interesting what they've shown so far: Barry Alan showed blue (Hope), Guy is red (Rage), Tempest is blue (Hope), and the majority of GLs have shown green (Will). I just felt like mentioning that. I think it's interesting.
7.5 / 10.
Alright. It's been awhile but here are my reviews for the comics I bought this past month. Along with a review of Watchmen.
I never liked the dialogue in pre-2000 comics. It always seemed corny. I didn't see that here. Barely anything corny in it. It was simply great.
The story kept me interested from beginning to end. I have to admit, I knew one or two spoilers, but I was still shocked and I enjoyed this entire book.
8.5 / 10. Classic.
Star Wars: Invasion #2:
The series is off to a decent start. I liked the appearances of Jacen, Jaina, and Anakin Solo. But I didn't like their portrayal. I did not like that they were at the Jedi Praxeum, though. They'd already left by the time of the Yuuzhan Vong War.
7 / 10
Star Wars: Dark Times - Blue Harvest #0:
Art: Good. But I didn't like the coloring of Dass Jennir. He was kinda pale.
Basically, this was a prequel to Dark Times #13. It was released online a few months before #13 came out and was re-released in comic format in this issue. Pretty good story and explains how Jennir came to be involved with the slavers in #13.
7 / 10
Captain America: Reborn #2:
It was ok. Not enough of "Captain America: Reborn" actually shows... well Cap's rebirth. But I do like how Osborn is teaming up with Red Skull.
7 / 10
War of Kings #6:
Art: Not that good.
.... wow. They did it. They actually did it. Marvel really screwed up this event.
First, the best part was Black Bolt's scream (which was much weaker than I'd like). THAT was the only good part of this entire issue. That good part was negated with Vulcan surviving a direct blast from within two feet of Black Bolt. And to top it all of, BLACK BOLT DIES! Or at least is thought dead. Seems like Joe Q is doing a sweep of Marvel and just killing off characters. Nice Q!
In the end, War of Kings was a true disappointment.
6 / 10
Justice League: Cry for Justice #2:
So far I'm enjoying this series. This issue wasn't as good as the first, but it was good.
Man... why did it have to be Freddy? Why couldn't it have been Billy Batson as Captain Marvel? Oh well.

JediXMan7 does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send JediXMan7 a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
