Captain America: Civil War is coming! It's the third installment of this action packed trilogy and I couldn't be happier. It features a conflict between team Rogers aka Captain America and team Stark aka Iron Man. Any comic geek knows the story line in this game but for the rest it continues the story of Cap seeking his past friend James 'Bucky' Buchannon known as the Winter Soldier in part 2.
Director did his job in making the final installment of this trilogy a success. Quick history lesson for all of our movie aficionados. Hollywood's benchmark for success is 3's.... or rather trilogies. Spiderman featuring Tobey McGuire, X-Men featuring Hugh Jackman, Batman starring Christian Bale, The Godfather series... need I say more? The flip side to this is going too far, making more than 3 movies and creating flops. Hmm... let us see: Superman with Christopher Reeves went too far, Batman with Michael Keats, Val Kilmer and George Clooney... yep way past its expiration date. Friday the 13th movies? Enough said.
Alas back to Cap and Civil War movie there are some nice cameos as depicted in the trailer and from what I can tell Black Panther makes his debut, nice! Oh end of trailer looks nice where Cap and Bucky are taking it to Iron Man lol. -James
Madden has been making wives/ girlfriends the 'other chick' for years. Sadly us men have to succumb to the fairer sex wishes over the holidays and get dragged along to family dinners and events. All good gents... we have a solution for all of us 'Y' chromosome gene pool inhabitants lol.
For the next 5 days we will be hosting a Madden sim style single elimination tourney. Think of it as a Sweet 16 NCAA tourney where its a 1 and done venture. Yep... lose once and you are out. G4R is holding a special tournament for the guys left behind during the Thanksgiving Holiday. G4R is in 3 sim leagues and a lot of members have hit the road to be with loved ones. For the rest here's your shot at fame and glory, not to mention a chance to be scouted by other leagues.
First, it's a tournament not a league complete with rules and guidelines. You can only use a team once per tourney so make it count. Use the Patriots in first rd and win? Great!.. bad news is ya can't use them again rest of tourney. Make sure ya save those great teams for late rounds.
Tourney started today and is nearly through first round. Half of our staff is out of town which is why we are running this tourney to pass the time. It's only 4hrs in and already we are seeing heated matches lol. All good these guys are being scouted for other lgs whether they know it or not. It's our job to make sure everyone follow the rules... nothing more nothing less.
Tourney is locked but here is a link to page and league.

It's a sad day for gamers everwhere, Mz Bubblez has passed. Most know her but for the few who don't she helped shaped the face of gaming and also ran a Facebook page titled 'Silly Boys games are for Girls'. The page showcased females in games and many other pics of relevant women in the industry. G4R had the privilege of showcasing her in the past and even had her on a podcast. A cpl of yrs ago G4R had the #1 Gaming podcast on BTR (Blog Talk Radio) and featured her on an episode called 'Silly Boys Games R 4 Girls'. Episode featured the iconic Keith DePalma and Mary Cosgrove. Enjoy everyone and godspeed Jackie aka Mz Bubblez.
Sadly we've relocated our site ISP and lost the article but good news is... we're reposting this new one. We have a history with her, albeit somewhat clouded, but still recognize a true gamer when we see one. We held a podcast contest years ago where the winner would receive a monetary pay out. She won but our staff got their wires crossed and compensation was never paid out. Rules were somewhat blurred and though G4R intended on honoring the debt it never came to pass. It's like one of those things where ya say 'I'll get to it in time, there's always tomorrow'.
In honor of her G4R will be putting up items purchased last cpl of yrs for a contest in her name. In memory of our beloved Jackie prizes will be posted soon. Godspeed lady.
Again click this "link" to hear one of Jackie's aka Mz Bubblez last broadcasts. Sophia Rose please inbox me to find any other of her posts we may have in our archives.
You won't find a bigger comic fan than me and one of my all time faves is the Dark Knight, Batman. I've watched every movie/ episode made of the caped crusader. Everything from the trendy 60's weekly version to the highly animated series to Hollywood blockbuster movies.
This latest straight to video movie scheduled to release early next year has me intrigued. For those not up on the history of Batman it features his past including numerous sidekicks that helped him keep Gotham City safe. It appears there is a twist in the plot as some of these returning members have more than justice on their minds. I'm just as eager as the next fan to get the scoop but can only wait for now. Stay tuned as I dig a little deeper into the creators mind to find out what's really going on in Gotham!
