A New Def Jam game maybe? Roster Ideas by Corey Floyd

over the past month or so DefJam has been throwing some hints that they might make another fighting game. About two console generations ago (ps2, Xbox, GC) there was a game from EA BIG called Def Jam Vendetta. It was a wrestling style game but with hip-hop artists. DMX would literally kick your ass. Redman & Method Man was the best (and still are) tag team ever. It was a hit !! The follow-up fight for NY was a great sequel with even more artists in fighting form. Then the third one was garbage, hot garbage simmering in garbage juice. It bombed hard. Now it looks like we might get another. Bosslogic even came up with a title. Today I'm gonna come up with who should be in it. Some old, some new, some more gals, and some new dudes.


1. Missy Elliot Missy Elliot has been in the game for a long time. Somehow despite all of her hits, she has never been given the title of queen of hip-hop. In the game, she could be the queen of mean. Give her a footing style that matches her out of thi…

Thirteen Reasons to Come to Otakon 2018

Thirteen Reasons to Come to Otakon 2018
Washington, D.C. (August 1, 2018) –  Still on the fence about coming to this year's Otakon? Ethan Kick, the head of Guest Relations, has put together a list of thirteen reasons this year's Otakon will be worth attending.
1) Come check out all the amazing Gundam content we have at Otakon for our Mecha year! Sunrise and Funimation have a ton of amazing panels including a "Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans" Live Reading including Johnny Yung Bosch (Orga Itsuka), Kyle McCarley (Mikazuki Augus), Cherami Leigh (Kudelia), Robbie Daymond (Gaelio Bauduin), and Masaya Matsukaze (Gaelio Bauduin’s Japanese Dub) which will be at noon in featured programming (Ballroom C)! We will also have a "Gundam Iron-Blooded Orphans" panel with Kyle and Johnny alongside two of the creators: Kanetake Ebikawa (mecha designer) and Tatsuyuki Nagai (director) at 3:15 p.m. in Panel 1 (Room 202). You can also see Nagai-san and Ebikawa-san at their own panels …

We Take a Look at Rifter By Luiggi Cavanna

This past weekend I took a look at Rifter on steam, a game that at the time you’re reading this is probably out. Rifter is another physics platformer, I know I reviewed quite a few, but let me tell you I had a blast with it. This is a supplementary review, if you want to see my first impressions of the game right after I was done playing it, go check the video down below.


The first thing that you will see when you boot up the game is a screen asking you to select your control scheme. You can select between two keyboard schemes and two for the controller. For this review I used the “WASD” keys and mouse, make sure to pick the one that you’re more comfortable with but don’t worry you can change these settings later.
The art style of the game had this neon 80’s vibes to it, down to the sunset in the background that probably some of you will remember seeing in some shirts back in the day. The gameplay, as previous physics platformer we reviewed, revolves around getting from point A to po…

Sorry to bother You Review ( Spoilers Kinda) By Corey “Not Sorry” Floyd

In 2018 the idea of Black Entertainment has continued to evolve we're finally enjoying our entertainment little bit more with thought-provoking shows like Insecure,  Blackish and Atlanta and now it's time to take that magic and put it on the Silver Screen. Surprisingly this Silver Screen romp isn't held by Spike Lee or Dave Chappelle Issa Rae or even Donald Glover it's held by a new Gentleman on the same known as Boots Riley is most commonly known on the scene for his soundtrack assemblies. Not only is he the director he's actually the writer of this piece and with this July release going against The Rock's new movie Skyline as well as Adam Sandler's Transylvania 3 I can't help but feel a little concerned for his outing.  But after I saw the first trailer for it made me very hopeful   

with lakeith Stanfield and Tessa Thompson I was sold on the movie alone and a few nights ago I was very fortunate to see a screener of it and now I'm giving my review…

Antman and the WASP……. Meh (A salty review) By Corey Floyd

Okay back in May we watched the culmination  of ten years of storytelling lead up to one of the most emotional moments in the current film. Now as we wait for the ending of that saga its time for some heart filled filler. Hence Antman and the Wasp. Time to wipe away those tears and stop shitting on Starlord for a moment and get lost in some San Francisco espionage.  
Yeah, I was not the happiest of campers with this outing but it's not a dumpster fire like Thor the Dark World. It justs sets up things the wrong way. It's bad enough this the first MCU film after the Infinity war I feel like they were set up to fail from the beginning.  It’s the equivalent go on stage after Michael Jackson and your Taylor Hicks (google him).
The cast returns from the last one Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Lilly as the Wasp and Douglas as Hank Pym. They give stellar performances. Michelle Pfeiffer is revealed to be the original WASP and the key point of the film is to rescue her from the quantum realm. …

We Take a Look at Slime-san Superslime Edition By Luiggi Cavanna

This past weekend I took a look a Slime-san Superslime Edition on stream. Slime-san is quite a  charming action platformer with amazing music and an old school look to it.  This is a supplementary review, if you want to see my first impressions of the game right after I was done playing it, go check the video down below.


The version I played was the Superslime edition for the PS4, which included all the content release the past year with some new extra content add it to the mix. In the game, you play as a slime that was swallowed by a giant monstrous snake creature and now you have to survive the digestive system of said creature. The game is divided into levels and these levels are divided into small quick stages, where you have to go from point A to point B in a set amount of time before gastric juices fill the screen, while grabbing some collectibles on the way.
I gotta say, the first levels weren’t that challenging and most of the difficulty came from me trying to collect all the…

Luke Cage Season 2 (spoilerish) By Corey Floyd

Making Harlem great again. Yes, that's how I'm starting this one. Luke Cage returns with season 2 and I was not disappointed. We were already graced with the second season of Jessica Jones back in March ( review here http://www.amerimewire.com/2018/03/jessica-jones-season-2-review-by-corey.html ) and now we're back in Harlem with everyone favorite unbreakable hero. Everyone has returned to play the character, of course, Mike Colter as Luke, Simone Missick as Misty Knight,, Theo Rossi as Shades, Alfre Woodard as Mariah and last but not least Rosario Dawson as Claire. (I'm still weirded out that she was that mom in the beginning of CIVIL WAR)

We catch up with Luke being loved and admired by Harlem since unlike the rest of the defender's everyone knows who he is. But famous and being rich and not one in the same since he stays in Claire's apartment and the barbershop can’t afford the rent. C.R.E.A.M. is name of the game and Luke needs it. A young street Hustler na…

We Take a Look at Epic Loon

This past weekend I managed to stream an indie game named Epic Loon, by Macrales Studios and Ukuza Games a fun little platformer that will ruin friendships. This is a supplementary review, if you want to see my first impressions of the game right after I was done playing it, go check the video down below.


Epic Loon is a quite difficult physics platformer where you play as an alien blob that has possessed a VHS belonging to a movie aficionado named Joe. Your sole purpose in life is to ruin Joe’s favorite movies. Clearly, Joe is not to keen on that, and he will do everything in his power to dispose of you and your alien comrades. I have to say, I really loved the visual of the game, and the little live action intro video, it really put me in the mood of the game. The whole “VHS player” setting lends itself to interesting challenges. Joe will fast forward or rewind the tape in order to make your life miserable.
The gameplay is fairly simple, move and jump in your regular alien form, stic…

Top 5 Games I'm looking for at E3

A few weeks ago a list was "leaked" of all the games that are going to be shown at E3. Well, I don't know if its true or not but there are a few games that I'm super excited to see above all. We've seen some of the big boys jump the gun and hold a Pre E3 with Activision showing off the new Call of Duty, Bethesda showing Rage 2 and a trailer for Fallout 76 (one of my five), Ubisoft leaked the new Assassin Creed again this time we're going to Greece. And finally, Dice held a press conference to show off the new Battlefield with women on the cover and gamers are losing their mind but more on that at a later time. But, here are my Top Five Game I'm looking forward to. 
1. Fallout Vault 76: Another thing gamers are losing their minds over trying to decipher every little thing about the trailer. Yes, Besthda gave away some hints it will be the earliest fallout we have played only 25 years after the bombs fell. And, it will be set in Virginia. Mostly everything…
