‘Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion’ Review: A Faithful, but Basic RPG

In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past decade, or don’t watch cartoons but decided to read a review of a video game based on one for some reason, here’s a quick refresher on Adventure TimeThis colourful animated series follows the adventures of Finn, a heroic human boy, and Jake, his yellow talking dog as they roam the cutesy post-apocalyptic Land of Ooo. And it’s pretty darn brilliant.

While it’s obviously aimed at children, thanks to some silly and abstract humour, over-the-top voice acting, and surprisingly deep (and often chilling) lore, the show has managed to amass a rabid adult and teenage fanbase too.

More importantly though, its charming and colourful cartoon world of swords and hijinx is one that’s simply ripe for video game adaptations. But so far, video game-loving fans haven’t had much luck with Adventure Time.  Previous releases, such as the exhaustingly named Explore the Dungeon Because I Don’t Know! and Hey Ice King! Why’d You Steal Our Garbage?!!, felt like Cartoon Network merely slapped the Adventure Time brand onto the most basic of gaming concepts and called it a day.

A license to thrill?



Now though, fans are hoping that might change. Why? Because Bandai Namco is publishing the first ever open world Aventure Time RPG– Pirates of the Enchiridion. With the show set to air its last ever episode later this year, this game could be the perfect way to say goodbye to the land of Ooo. So, does Pirates of the Enchiridion finally do justice to Adventure Tim eas a video game adaptation?

Almost.

The game opens with Finn and Jake waking to find the Land of Ooo has flooded and transformed into a vast ocean, thanks to the villainous-but-lovable Ice King’s Kingdom having almost entirely melted. Very conveniently, the duo finds a makeshift boat nearby their destroyed home, and sets sail to find answers in this newly oceanic Ooo.

Although the sailing aspects may be Pirates of the Enchiridion‘s namesake, it’s perhaps the game’s most boring element. Initially, the sailing gives off strong Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker vibes, but it soon becomes apparent that instead of being the open world we hoped, it’s actually more like your average old-school RPG’s overworld map. And sadly, it’s just as barren.

With the exception of the odd item out at sea for Jake to grab a hold of, there is absolutely nothing of interest to interact with, and these sailing sections act as little more than a way to travel between the waypoints of the various islands around the land.

A (not so) Open World

The one that saves the sailing though, is that these sections contain some of the most genuinely charming moments in the entire game. Thanks to some brilliant performances from the show’s original cast,  we couldn’t help but smile whenever Finn and Jake broke out into song on their journey across the sea. This is reflective of what is perhaps the game’s greatest asset in general. Unlike with previous adaptations, its developers have clearly done their research to understand the show, and have made the effort to emulate the sort of story and dialogue you’d expect to see and hear in a typical episode.

Its characters feel like they do in the series, and its comedic personality is a perfect fit, which, unfortunately, is a real rarity for licensed video games.

The only fault in regards to the personality of the show – which is, let’s be honest, is the single most important element for fans – comes on the technical side, particularly in cutscenes. Although the graphics are generally charmingly cel-shaded, the animation is at times pretty janky, with lip-syncing a little off, and character’s expressions often seemingly unfitting of the situation or dialogue. Finn, for example, appears to be smiling regardless of what he’s actually saying, which is… well, a little weird.

Additionally, there’s some general freezing and juttering in the minute-to-minute gameplay, but if you came into Enchiridon expecting the quality and polish of a blockbuster title,  quite frankly, you were always going to end up disappointed.

Hey, It’s MY TURN

Outside of the sailing sections, there are two other primary modes of gameplay. Once you’ve disembarked from your boat, you control your party in very simplistic and (at times) excruciatingly linear platforming and puzzle segments. Much like the sea, it may at first look more open than it is, but you are effectively set on a very linear path. It feels like the same sort of basic video game concept that licensed titles have been doing since the PlayStation 1 era, bringing little new to the table.

Oh, and Jake can transform into a motorbike for these sections – just don’t ask where the motor sounds are coming from.

Thankfully, these bits are quick enough that they don’t often outstay their welcome. When it comes to the rest of the game, the overworld exploration wasn’t the only thing the developers borrowed from 90’s RPGs. If you’ve ever played a turn-based RPG before,  battles are going to feel all too familiar. When you encounter an enemy, everything plays out exactly as you’d expect an RPG unwilling to shake the boat would; you’re given the option for a standard attack, to use an item, such as a heart vial to recover some of your health, a block, or a special attack.

Special attacks use some of your energy points, which slowly replenish during the course of the battle, and range from simply inflicting more damage, hitting multiple enemies or causing a status effect, such as freezing or confusing. Your ultimate ability, or final attack, can be initiated once a party member takes a significant number of hits during the match, and enemies have their own elemental strengths and weaknesses.

RPG Time


Adventure Time: Pirates Of The Enchiridion Battle

Ending a match victoriously assigns each party member XP, which can eventually level them up, and you can utilise the in-game currency to upgrade your heroes’ health, attack power, defence, etc. Losing a match, however, results in you having to load from your last save or automated checkpoint. This isn’t likely to happen often, if at all, as combat is very, very easy and you’ll always have an abundance of recovery items to keep you safe. That is, unless you approach an high-level enemy with a red skull above their heads, in which case we strongly recommend you run away and return once you’ve levelled up.

Pirates of Enchiridion never diverges from established genre cliches that have existed for decades then.

Still, while it’s easier to look at this with our serious gamer hats on, what is important to take away here is that despite the show’s varied audience, Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridionis absolutely aimed at children. It sticks firmly to the RPG genre and licensed game cliches that have been present for decades, rarely straying from that path to risk presenting any original gameplay ideas. While it’ll be a great entry point to RPGs for younger fans, adults will undoubtedly grow tired of it quickly.

Is Adventure Time: Pirates Of The Enchiridion Any Good?

Although it may not be saying much, this is the most authentic representation of the series in a video game to date, and it is comfortably the best game based on the show so far. Yet, unless you are a child or somebody completely obsessed with Adventure Time,  despite its charm, Pirates of the Enchiridion will struggle to keep your attention for long.

Still, if you are a big Adventure Time fan and don’t require every game you play to be an original, stellar experience, there’s definitely fun to be had here thanks to the game’s charm and authenticity alone. For fans looking to say goodbye to the land of Ooo, you could definitely do a lot worse.

Playing ‘Ni No Kuni II’ Feels Like Embarking On Your Very Own Ghibli Adventure

There’s a certain indescribable charm that defines every Ghibli adventure. Whether the studio’s beautifully drawn stories are conveying the horrors of war or just goofing around with giant cuddly bear-cats, it’s their blend of the heart-warming with the fantastical that makes each vastly different creation still feel unmistakably Ghibli.

Yet, despite the beloved studio becoming synonymous with Japanese animation, it wasn’t until 2010 when Ghibli decided to cut its teeth on its first ever video game – Ni No Kuni.

With Ghibli making its name by creating some of entertainment’s most charming and unforgettable worlds, seeing them collaborate on a brand new RPG with the developer behind the Dragon Quest series was pretty much every anime fan’s wildest dream.

Unsurprisingly — given the talent of the two companies involved — Ni No Kuni was well received commercially and critically, and fans assumed that it heralded the start of an exciting new Ghibli era of video games.

Yet, sadly for fans, Studio Ghibli’s first ever official video game collaboration was also its last. Shortly after beloved creator Miyazaki announced his retirement, Ghibli followed suit, officially (but temporarily) closing its doors after its 2014 animated swansong, Marnie Was There.

A Ghibli Game In All But Name


Areas like the casino-inspired town of Goldpaw simply ooze that classic Ghibli charm.

Eight years after the release of the original, developer Level-5 is now gearing up to release Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom. But without Ghibli’s name adorning the box, is this a sequel that’s worth getting excited for?

While you may not see a mention of Ghibli in the credits, it’s time to breathe a sigh of relief – because this sequel is very much still a Ghibli game. Although its recent move away from feature production meant Studio Ghibli wasn’t technically involved with Ni No Kuni II at all, many of the studio’s key animators (including Yoshiyuki Momos, who worked on Spirited Away) jumped ship to Level-5 and have been hard at work on this gorgeous RPG ever since.

This time around, the collaboration between Level-5 and Ghibli has been a far more organic affair — and, boy, does it show. While the last game saw Level-5 basing their gameplay around cutscenes sent to them by Ghibli, Ni No Kuni II’s development has seen the Ghibli alumni overseeing every aspect of its creation.

Here, every environment, every character and even the way the game plays has been guided by the hand of the experienced Ghibli veterans at Level-5.

Easier, Prettier, Faster, Stronger?


This time there are no 2D cutscenes, Level-5 has instead managed to create an in-game engine that matches the majesty of Ghibli’s big screen productions.

Where the ambitious original was held back slightly by the aging PS3’s hardware, thanks to the additional horsepower afforded to the artists by the PS4, Level-5 and Ghibli have come startling close to creating a fully playable anime.

With barely a polygon in sight, each wonderfully designed character and environment looks remarkably smooth, as if it has been ripped straight from the sketch artists’ page before being magically injected with a welcome sense of depth. Here, everything from fearsome fantasy creatures to friendly townsfolk looks every bit as charming and expressive as anything Ghibli has released on the big screen.

Ni No Kuni II isn’t just a prettier experience than its predecessor, but a deeper one too. After being taken off guard by the overwhelming Western response to the original, Level-5 has attempted to make this sequel even more appealing to players outside of Japan.

For starters, the battle system is a completely different beast to what came before. Ditching the quasi-turn-based, Tales series meets Pokemon combat model from the original, Revenant Kingdom instead gives players full control of an entirely human party. With no familiars in sight, you are free to switch party characters at will, using a mix of melee, ranged and skill-based attacks to make short work of your foes.

Fit For a King


Combat is a far more fast-paced affair this time around.

Running at a rock solid 60 frames per second, combat feels just as satisfying as you would expect – if a little simplistic. We’ve only spent a few hours with the game so far, but we hope that as characters level up and unlock new abilities, battles will require more of a considered, tactical approach than the frantic button mashing that helped us coast through the early game.

Yet, the most radical departure from the original No No Kuni comes with the new elements that tie into the ‘Kingdom’ of the game’s namesake. Where the first game saw a young boy called Oliver transported to a strange new world, this sequel instead tells the story of an entirely new young hero. Put in the shoes of Evan Pettiwhisker Tildrum, players find themselves trying to reclaim his kingdom after having his throne usurped.

Yet, this narrative setup is more than just cutscene fodder, it actually ties into everything you do in game. As you travel the land taking on quests and battling monsters, you find yourself actively recruiting new subjects for your Kingdom. Once you’ve earned the respect of your new loyal subjects, you can return to your Kingdom of Evermore, and manage your little town — Clash of Clans-style.


Kingdom management plays a big role in Ni No Kuni II.

This game mode feels pretty simplistic, merely requiring you to upgrade structures and research new abilities and upgrades by acquiring citizens with the right skills and spending kingpoints.

Revenant Kingdom‘s RTS elements don’t end there though. While most of the battles you engage in will take place in the Tales’ series inspired realtime combat style, between objectives you will have the option to engage in an entirely different type of warfare. Known as skirmishes, these Pikmin-esque encounters see you leading legions of chibi-styled troops into battle. Armed with just basic attacks and four special AOE abilities, the few early skirmishes we got to experience seemed to be lacking in both depth and satisfying combat.

How Is Ni No Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom shaping up?

Still, this is a game that could well span a hundred hours, and with only three hour testing time — we’ve barely scratched the surface. While Level-5 could easily have just produced a copy and paste sequel to the last game, it’s admirable to see the studio attempting to weave so many new mechanics into Revenant Kingdom. Whether this experimentation will pay off remains to be seen, but even if the extraneous RTS elements do end up feeling a bit lacklustre, the core of Ni No Kuni II still looks to be a wonderfully charming Ghibli RPG. And really, that’s all we ever wanted.

5 Best Adventure Anime of 2017

One of the best qualities of anime is its ability to take viewers on incredible journeys to any destination imaginable. Adventure anime whisks its audience away to explore far-off lands with unusual and fascinating cultures and inhabitants who offer insight into the world we live in. 2017 was a great year for anime in general, and these are the five best adventure anime that aired this year.

Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul

Taking place 10 years after the events of the first season, Virgin Soul has a very intense and dark beginning where we see humans killing gods. However, the sequel is the complete opposite from Genesis’s first episode. The reason for this is revealed during the series’ run, but it was such a great beginning to an epic adventure.

Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul creates excitement and wonder that is synonymous with an epic fantasy adventure. Each scene of this anime attracts and holds your interest until the finale. From running up and down to dark spells, the adventure meter never seems to waver with Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul.

[Zuleika Boekhoudt]

Kemono Friends

Not every adventure anime has to feature dark supernatural themes. The most enjoyable adventures can also be cute and whimsical. Kemono Friends follows the story of humanoid animals living at Japari Park, an enormous integrated zoo.

One day, a girl known only as Kaban wakes up in the zoo with no memory of who she is or how she got there. She, along with her cat friend, Serval, set out on an adventure to find out what kind of animal Kaban is. They travel through the many regions of Japari Park and meet new friends along the way.

Although much of the graphics on Kemono Friends may be subpar compared to other series on this list, its storyline and characters have received a lot of praise from fans. This adventure anime has unexpectedly captivated viewers and has led to an increase in merchandising, zoo attendance, and even interest in serval cats.

[Zuleika Boekhoudt]

Kino’s Journey

2017s Kino’s Journey – an adaptation of the light novel of the same name and a remake of the 2003 anime – focuses on the androgynous Kino and the talking motorcycle Hermes. The two travel the world and only allow themselves to stay in one place for two nights and three days. This gives Kino the opportunity to encounter a myriad of cultures and experiences that exist within this mystical world.

Each community in Kino’s Journey has a specific quality that offers a commentary on elements of the real world, such as tourism or patriotism. Kino’s Journey is one of this year’s best adventure anime shows because the more bizarre and fantastical it gets, the more it manages to say about real communities and cultures.

[Lucas DeRuyter]

Made in Abyss

Made in Abyss is a fantastical adventure anime with a cute chibi art style that juxtaposes beautifully with its dark themes. Made in Abyss follows the story of a human girl and a robot boy as they try to travel to the bottom of an impossibly deep, monster-filled chasm.

Outside of its unique artistic direction, this anime is one of the best adventure anime of 2017 as it tells a compelling tale in some compelling and horrific locations. Made in Abyss tells a heartwarming tale of friendship and gaining independence as the pair descend further into greater and greater peril.

[Lucas DeRuyter]

Tales of Zestiria The Cross Season 2

In Season 2 of Tales of Zestiria The Cross, Sorey the Shepherd faces the biggest challenge yet: the Lord of Calamity. But, before he meets his most important quest, Sorey and his friends have to purify the land.

While on this adventure, Sorey acquires the ability to merge with his seraphims. As a result of this armitization, we meet several new characters with new skills. Besides Sorey’s new abilities, we see the gang travel the countryside solving problems, stopping assassination attempts, and bringing hope to the people.

Water worlds: top 10 marine adventure holidays worldwide

Ahead of the BBC’s new David Attenborough series Planet Blue II, we pick 10 trips that explore the oceans, from diving the Pacific’s ‘underwater Serengeti’ to reef conservation in Belize and kayaking in Komodo

For world-class diving sites you can reach on a budget airline, try the Azores archipelago. The seamounts (volcanic underwater elevations) have barred hogfish and stingrays on the seabed, and devil rays and skipjack tuna closer to the surface, plus dolphins, turtles and whales to spot on the boat there and back. Divers can swim with 10-metre whale sharks off the coast of Santa Maria island, and with blue sharks around the Condor seamount, 10 miles from Faial island. The Rosais reef, off the western tip of São Jorge, is a more accessible place to find a wide variety of sealife, including octopus and huge schools of pelagic fish, and there is the Dusky Grouper Passageway off Corvo, where divers are often followed by the eponymous big, friendly fish. Caves and shipwrecks complete the package.

‘Uncharted: Lost Legacy’ Review – A Familiar Feeling Adventure

When Uncharted: Lost Legacy was revealed late last year, this unexpected expansion raised its fair share of eyebrows. With Nathan Drake seemingly out of the picture, the first gameplay demo the world saw looked unlike anything else we’d seen from the long-running franchise.

Instead of the series’ mascot quipping his way out of a jungle, Naughty Dog’s gritty new trailer showed a mysterious veiled woman (who turned out to be Uncharted 2’s Chloe) sneaking through the streets of a war-torn Indian city. With explosions rocking nearby buildings and snarling rebel soldiers dragging civilians out of their homes, this surprise expansion hinted at a very different type of Uncharted game.

Now that Lost Legacy’s actually here though, we’re sorry to say that those hoping for a darker take on the popular franchise are going to be severely disappointed. While the first level gives you a nice glimpse into what a bleaker kind of treasure hunt might look like, the rest of Lost Legacy is very much just another Uncharted game – for better and for worse.



Nathan Drake is nowhere to be seen

Placed in the shoes of Uncharted 2’s Chloe Frazer, an artefact you find in the city soon sends you off to the sprawling Indian countryside.

Unsurprisingly, you’re after a legendary treasure once again, but this time it’s one that belonged to the ancient Hoysala Empire. With Uncharted 4’s moody mercenary Nadine tagging along for the ride, the pair soon find themselves in a trusty 4×4, exploring the same kind of luscious green locales that wowed us in last year’s A Thief’s End.

Mercifully though, it’s not all re-treading old ground here. For the first time in the series, Lost Legacy’s fourth chapter puts players into a sprawling open landscape, giving them an expansive playground to explore at their leisure.

Tasked with tracking down a slew of ancient artefacts, you’re free to tackle each mini temple in whatever order you please, with other hidden collectibles also scattered throughout the landscape.

While finding additional trinkets can often be a bit of a drag in open world games, Lost Legacy thankfully doesn’t hide these precious tokens in absurd places, instead demanding that you earn them by solving various puzzles or engaging in a spot of platforming.

While Uncharted isn’t exactly known for its head scratching puzzles, we were surprised by how varied and enjoyable these little trials were, with puzzles ranging from everything to fiddly rotating dials to trickily timed switches.



Open environments are the breath of fresh air that ‘Uncharted’ needed

Some of those optional tokens, however, will be a bit simpler to track down, with a couple merely sitting inside crumbling buildings. While that may not sound particularly exciting, stumbling on a trinket inside an old tower you just spotted on the horizon feels like a genuine archaeological discovery. It adds a fun sense of adventure to treasure hunting, feeling slightly reminiscent of the recent Tomb Raider games.

Thanks to the varied puzzles and the sheer size of the map, this open chapter is a refreshing change of pace from the series’ usually painfully linear adventures.

Unfortunately, though, that sense of freedom doesn’t last long. Without wanting to spoil anything, the usual bait and switch shenanigans you’d expect from an Uncharted adventure rear their head, causing the rest of the game to sharply change tack.

After letting players off the lead for the first time, it feels as though the game designers were all too swift to put them back in their place, quickly sending players back to the tried-and-tested linear temple missions of old. This means that the last half of the game falls into a predictable Uncharted rhythm, with Chloe and Nadine jumping around a bit, gunning down a few enemies and then solving the occasional simplistic puzzle.



But a poor story lets ‘Lost Legacy’ down

The core gameplay here is still undeniably great, but sadly, there’s just not a strong enough narrative to keep players motivated. After the brilliant and emotional journey players embarked on in Uncharted 4, it’s pretty disappointing to be following characters that feel so poorly fleshed out.

Without a compelling reason to keep pushing through each new area, the generic script turns what should have been an exciting adventure into a series of repetitive action movie tropes.  There’s a fan-pleasing appearance from a key Uncharted character towards the end of the game, but at that point – it’s simply too little too late.

Is ‘Uncharted: Lost Legacy’ any good?

Still, despite the poor narrative, there is some fun to be had in Lost Legacy. While it’s definitely not the globe-trotting adventure of a full, numbered Uncharted, this expansion has a few great moments of its own. If you’re desperate to lose yourself in another treasure-hunting escapade, Lost Legacy will be just the ticket. For everyone who still feels satisfied by the giddy highs of last year’s Uncharted 4 though, your £25 is probably better spent elsewhere.

Trinidad & Tobago Adventure Guide

Trinidad & Tobago Adventure Guide


Although definitely a part of the Caribbean, these two islands are unique, refusing to conform with the stock Caribbean image created by glossy brochures and travel agencies. They are both generous and Caribbean-spirited, but quite capable of going their own way. This Adventure Guide takes you across the nation from mountains and hills to grasslands, savannahs and palm-lined beaches, offering the intrepid traveler a ticket to explore. Birdwatchers are drawn by the chance to see the beautiful scarlet ibis. Night-time excursions allow visitors to watch the miraculous egg-laying practices of the leatherback turtle. And caiman smaller versions of the South's alligators are a common sight. And then there's Carnival, which offers wild dances, fantastical costumes and frenzied revellers. Whatever your reason to visit T&T, you have the right guide in hand. Accommodations, restaurants, travel tips, sights, museums, excursions it's all here. A special section is dedicated to the nation's booming yachting industry, with details on marinas, facilities and services. "I wish I'd had this book the first time I visited Trinidad and Tobago. The book fully describes the culture of these island people and this knowledge would make a trip to these wonderful islands even more enjoyable. I also believe it's a good choice for readers who can't make the trip but still want to taste the culture." — Amazon customer"I've been to TNT once for two weeks and am returning again in a few months. I bought the book to refresh my memory and, more importantly, get me excited about my return trip. It's a great read, and as the back cover suggests, it really is written for the traveler who wants to experience more than just sunbathing. However, once you've been to Trindad and Tobago, you discover that they are not your generic Caribbean islands. Visiting Trindad and Tobago is more of a cultural vacation than an island getaway. Once you step foot off the plane at Piarco airport, you'll never want to leave, or you'll want to go back once every year. The two islands are full of charisma, and O'Donnell and Pefkaros do a good job of capturing this spirit in the book. You really cannot be intimidated by the cultures of TNT. From the street vendor corn soup, to crab and dumplings, "down de islands", Maracas, Pigeon Point, Speyside, fried flying fish, Caribs, lorries, maxis, wining, Trinidad's great bar/club scene, the Northern Range, etc. – this book virtually covers all Trinidad and Tobago vacation opportunities and experiences." — Amazon customer"An excellent take-long tote, as is the more adventurous Trinidad & Tobago, 2nd Edition by Kathleen O'Donnell and Stassi Pefkaros, which updates information on adventure travel with special focus on the wildlife and culture of the islands." — Midwest Book Review

#FollowMeTo Couple’s Wedding Photo Is A Breathtaking Chapter In Their Adventure

Photographer Murad Osmann is famous for following his girlfriend around the world. Last weekend, he made a promise to hold her hand forever.

Osmann’s “Follow Me To” project began in 2012, when he started capturing images of girlfriend Natalia Zakharova holding his hand in different locales around the globe. After rising to Instagram fame and publishing a book in January, the two married on Saturday, June 6 in a gorgeous ceremony.

Osmann shared a snapshot from the nuptials along with a sweet message to his bride, writing, “I promise to hold your hand and tell you I love you every day for the rest of our lives.”



“We were all waiting for the moment to do the #followmeto shot right after the ceremony,” Osmann told The Huffington Post in an email Tuesday. “After we both said ‘yes,’ we [decided] to ask all the guests to participate in our photo … In the shot [on my account] I am reaching her hand and trying to follow her to the big red door that was a part of the ceremony decorations and we [used] it instead of the typical wedding arch. She is leading me to the new life and in the picture she is inviting me into it.”



Zakharova, who looked beautiful in a Vera Wang gown, shared photos on her own Instagram account including ones by photographer Nikolay Zverkov.



Check out more photos from the wedding below.

You can make your own list of the Top 10 Best ’80s Adventure Movies by selecting your favorites, ranking them in order, and publishing on Culturalist.

Fans are already buzzing about the next installment in the Star Wars saga, and now we’ve got new rumors that Indiana Jones might be returning to the big screen… Hold on to your acid-washed jeans, because the 1980s are coming back in a big way. Culturalist’s list makers are wondering: of all of the blockbuster adventure movies made in the ’80s, which are the best? You can weigh in by making your own list of the Top 10 Best ’80s Adventure Movies now!

The Empire Strikes Back
2015-05-07-1431034459-6650615-Empire.gif
Vader hunts the rebels across the galaxy, while Luke embraces his destiny as a Jedi…and gets ready for the lightsaber battle that will define a generation. Will the new slate of films be able to topple Empire from its spot as the best Star Wars movie?

Raiders of the Lost Ark
2015-05-07-1431034486-3871399-Raiders.gif
Few films have done as much for academia as Raiders with its faithfully accurate depiction of the life of a professor of archaeology at a small liberal arts college. Kingdom of the Crystal Skull may have received a mixed response from fans, but the Indy franchise still has plenty left in the tank.

Back to the Future
2015-05-07-1431034505-5995698-BacktotheFuture.gif
Wanna feel old? Back to the Future‘s release is as long ago from today as the ‘Enchantment Under the Sea’ dance was from Marty McFly’s 1985. Time-traveling cars may not be on the market yet, but don’t let that stop you from going back to Back to rank it on your list.

The Princess Bride
2015-05-07-1431034523-9165463-PrincessBride.gif
It’s a classic tale: farmboy meets girl, boy becomes Dread Pirate, girl sort-of-marries a prince…but is abducted by outlaws, from whom she is (again) abducted by the aforementioned Dread Pirate/farmboy…throw in some unusually-large rodents and a villain with a non-standard number of fingers, and you’ve got yourself one of the most beloved movies of the past 30 years. Does The Princess Bride make it on to your list?

Which big screen classic will come out on top? Join the conversation by making your own list of the Top 10 Best ’80s Adventure Movies now!

Pee-wee Herman’s Bike From ‘Pee-wee’s Big Adventure’ Sells For $36,600 On eBay

Pee-wee’s bike fetched some big bucks on eBay Thursday.

The shiny red and white bicycle used by Pee-wee Herman in “Pee-wee’s Big Adventure” sold for $ 36,600, or more than three times the $ 10,000 reward offered for the return of the bike in the 1985 film.

(It should be noted that Pee-wee had no intention of paying the reward since “whoever returns the bike is obviously the person who stole it — so they don’t deserve any reward.”)

That’s also more than three times the $ 10,000 the seller paid for it back in 2010.

On the other hand, Pee-wee set a much higher price for the bike in the film:

The seller says in the listing that he needs to ditch the bike “because my family is getting larger.”

The only downside is that the bike doesn’t exactly look like it did in the film at the moment. It’s in pieces.

So basically, some assembly required.

Trying to Get Your Job Back After a Walter Mitty Style Adventure

Hi, Mr. Cooper. It’s Martin. I’m actually glad you didn’t pick up, it’ll be much easier to just say this over your answering machine.

As you probably noticed, I haven’t shown up for work at all this week. I know it must have caused some problems, especially since this was the week of our big merger. But I swear I have a very good reason for my absence.

Last weekend I saw that new Ben Stiller movie, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and it really affected me. A sad, ignored worker, going on an adventure to escape the routine of his horrible boring job? That sounds just like our office, am I right?

When I came home, I immediately packed my suitcase and decided to go on an adventure of my own. Believe me, explaining this to you is way easier than having to explain this to my wife and kids. Especially since I already disappeared for two weeks on Christmas break when I saw The Desolation of Smaug.

Anyway, after telling the kids why they, once again, can’t join daddy on his life changing trip to the most wild and fun places in the world, I drove to the airport and bought a one way ticket to Iceland. By the way, this whole thing really burned a hole in my credit card, so if there’s any chance you’d let me keep my job, I’d be super happy if you could give me an advance on next month’s paycheck. Thanks.

When I got to Iceland I was all ready for my enlightening moment. I couldn’t wait to experience all the world has to offer. But it turned out it’s not so easy to go Walter Mittying (that’s how I called it, it got some huge laughs in Tahiti). I learned pretty early on that I’m not that keen on adventures. He did some dangerous things in that movie. I mean, Swimming with sharks? I have a wife and kids for god’s sake. Could you imagine how they would feel if their father was devoured to death by a shark? Besides, I’m really more of a lie-on-the-beach sort of guy.

So I did some research, which was also something that Mitty character never bothered to do. How could you just travel from country to country without so much as a good recommendation on a hotel? If Mitty used Trip Advisor, he would have avoided so many troubles. Anyway, I planned a really great route to visit all the best beaches and spas the world has to offer. It really relaxed me. You should try it. When I woke up from my afternoon nap after the two hour massage I got, I started to really understand why Mitty went on this quest. It really did change my life. Plus, I had a happier ending than that movie had, if you know what I mean…

Well, I think I’m just rambling on now. I’m afraid your answering machine is going to cut me off, so I’ll just say this- I really hope you won’t fire me when I come in on Monday. I’d hate to ruin the good experience I had following Ben Stiller’s advice by finding out I no longer have a job. I don’t think he thought it all the way through. I mean, he could always go make another movie. But people like us, this is all we have. These Hollywood people, they never think about the little man. All they care about is getting our money on movie tickets. Well, I got the last laugh- I didn’t even pay, I downloaded it off the internet.

Oh, and if you get the chance, could you tell all the guys in the office I’m really sorry about dropping that stink bomb in the vents? I really didn’t think I was ever coming back.

On the Seven Seas: Wargames Rules for the Age of Piracy and Adventure C.1500-1730

On the Seven Seas: Wargames Rules for the Age of Piracy and Adventure C.1500-1730


“On the Seven Seas” is a set of wargaming rules covering the high adventure and low morals of the world of the pirate. The rules cover licensed privateers such as da Gama and Drake, ruthless pirates of the Spanish Main, Blackbeard, the Barbary corsairs, the wako of the Far East, not to mention the anti-pirate squadrons, Spanish garrisons and native warriors from around the world that found themselves at odds with generations of sea-borne reavers. The focus of the game is on boarding actions and the exploits of pirate crews on land, and the rules offer a quick-to-learn, basic game based around individual characters and small units of rank-and-file. Most games will run to some 30 figures a side, although larger games are possible, and tribal forces especially will consist of more models. Gameplay centers around two driving motivations that epitomize the pirate life – Fear and Greed. Cunning captains will have to balance these two elements, instilling fear in their opponents with bloodthirsty reputations, while keeping their own crews in line with the promise of loot and wealth. Captains and crew are not just distinguished by these two ratings, however – skills, characteristics and disadvantages can dramatically alter a character’s abilities, and allow for the development of characters over time. The rules also contain maneuver and gunnery rules for ship-on-ship combat. This is not a game of mass naval actions, but of small, personal duels between determined captains. Caravels, sloops, schooners, native canoes, junks and square-rigged ships up to frigate size can be deployed in the pursuit of a prize… or a pirate vessel. Varied scenarios and a detailed campaign system allow players to develop the stories of their crews, with scenarios determined either randomly, by player choice, or by the progression along a sample campaign path. Elements of a more fantastical nature, such as ghost ships, sea creatures and the strange powers of native mystics, may also be inclu
