Virtual Tourist – Wolfenstein The New Order 1/14/18

Morning!

No Mini Movie Review this week. Work’s been killing me for Year End Close, so I was a total vegetable yesterday. Did 16 hours just on Friday. Ugh! The first couple of months of the new year are heinous work wise. 😛 (My messed up brain kept singing “It’s the most wonderful time, of the year!” all week!) 😛

Wolfenstein The New Order

Wolfenstein The New Order

We’re taking the train to Berlin. Those two at the table will become central figures in BJ’s future.

I love all the lovely details!

Wolfenstein The New Order

Our first look at Berlin.

Wolfenstein The New Order

More of the Berlin skyline. The Nazi Secret Police Headquarters

Wolfenstein The New Order

The Nazi’s have made it to the moon! This is also, believe it or not, a piece of foreshadowing. Later on, we’ll be going there too! Bwahahahahaha!

Wolfenstein The New Order - building

This is a rather impressive building, no?

Wolfenstein The New Order

After much work and heartache, I’ve finally found what remains of the US resistance fighters in a super fortified prison. I’m about to cut those chains!

Wolfenstein The New Order - statues

You have to give it to the Nazi’s – they know how to go big! (This is also an overhead view which will lead us down to where the resistance has their main HQ. Right in the middle of the enemy!

Wolfenstein The New Order - Resistance HQ

Resistance Headquarters. What little there is of it. But tapped in good.

 

Hope you have a great week!

Virtual Tourist – Wolfenstein The New Order 12/31/17

With all the holidays the last two weeks and trying not to catch a cold, my sense of what day it is is a little on the fritz! Lol. Almost forgot today is Sunday and Virtual Tourist Day! DOH!

Mini Movie Reviews

Star Wars The Last Jedi

Star Wars The Last Jedi – 3 out of 5 – mostly a smash of Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi with unimaginative changes. For such a huge franchise, you’d think they’d try to do good scripts. Still better than Episode III (Movie 6) 😛

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

JUMANJI: Welcome to the Jungle – 4 out of 5 – I REALLY enjoyed this one! It had a lot more depth than you’d expect, lots of surprises, and the acting was fab! Jack Black outdid himself on this one. They all did. (We went home and immediately watched the original again. Found several nice tie backs!)

DownsizingDownsizing – 3.25 out of 5 – Hubby was wanting to see this one badly, and ended up very disappointed. The first half or so was fascinating! Then the pace came to grinding halt and took a left turn. I think they tried to do too much with the film and inadvertently lost their way. A pity.

 

Wolfenstein The New Order

After escaping the mental hospital, we hide at my girl’s grandparents. I brought along a souvenir. Time to get answers.

The little touches are always the best. Here is a poster that needs no translation. 🙂

A giant facility and checkpoint. We need to get through this to go to Berlin.

Should have lightened this one. Dang. Anyway, you can see my girl’s grandma and grandpa. Old but mean business. They are helping to sneak the two of us to Berlin.

 Within the facility/checkpoint structure.

Another one I should have lightened. Boo! I’m sneaking my way further into the facility.

Some cool truck plans in the garage area. Some very subtle foreshadowing as you will soon see. 😛

View of a smaller secondary gate. We’re almost through.

Surprise! This is what the weird truck specs were for. Transporting mechanized warrior units. Eek!

A full view of the beastie. Nasty sucker. They pop two of those for you to get rid off. Ugh!

Hope you and yours have a great New Years Eve!

Morning!

Mini Movie ReviewMurder on the Orient Express:

Murder On The Orient Express

I’ve watched the 1974 version of this film numerous times. It too had an all-star cast. This new version is as good if not better than that one! Awesome performances, beautiful vistas, loads to love!

I’m trying something a little different this week. Not actually sharing every last picture I took. I will attempt to be more particular on what I put in here. I always end up with way more than I use. I have a trigger finger with regards to photos. Lol.

 

Wolfenstein The New Order

Once again, there is no question as to whose place we are in. 😛 That is one solid door.

Some famous personas.

A few more…

Loved these! Yeah, I have a thing about fixtures. lol

Still being restored, but this is a beautiful hallway. The indirect lighting is awesome. 🙂

This would be General Deathhead. A very, very nasty man. As I will soon discover. (This painting is also a secret door! Sweet!)

The cool windows and the rays of light. Lovely!

A nice view of the nearby ruins. Too bad so many people are trying to kill me, or I would be more impressed. Lol.

This is where I realized that there is NO WAY kids should play this game. Deathhead is evil, evil, evil. Pictured above is some of his handy work to obtain brains for his automatons. Brrrr.

This is when we realize that running into this room was a terrible mistake. Eek!

Hope you had a good Veterans Day!

Morning, all!

Mini- Movie Review – Geostorm – impressive special effects, bad science, and guys, the software would have been the first thing they should have checked!!!!! 😛

Wolfenstein The New Order

Inside the citadel walls heading towards the big guns

US fighters and the cool German ones. Flying too fast to get a good pic. See the red trails? That’s one of them.

Good view of the hulking behemoth walking the beach and US craft coming to battle it.

Fortress/castle within the citadel walls.

Met up with my unit. We’re about to try to climb the thing from the outside.

Our main target, General Deathhead. Nasty, nasty man. As I will find out later. Ugh!

That’s William Blazkowicz, the person we play. He is one tough SOB.

Going up the wall. Like Batman and Robin! Except it’s way more dangerous. 😛

View climbing up the side of the wall of the fortress/castle. Germans will pop out the windows and fire down on us. Ugh!

This was so unexpected! US bomber crashed into the fortress sight above us! Eek!

 

Have a great day!

Virtual Tourist – Wolfenstein The New Order

Morning!

The movie this week was Foreigner with Jackie Chan and Pirce Brosnan. Convoluted bugger, but good. Only nitpick was people not raising any eyebrows (including Jackie) about needing a second explosion to figure out who was the bomber. Great fight scenes.

Doing a new (to me) game this week. I played Wolfenstein back when it was a 2D game! Wow, has it changed since then! So impressive I finally gave in and took pics. So here you go. 😛

Wolfenstein The New Order (2014)

This is after we’ve been shot down as the WWII bombers tried to make it over to the German base. That thing above is a walking, giant weapon of death!

Cyber dog. The German’s in this game are way more technologically advanced than we are. These dogs are mean and super tough!

Here’s the big weapon doing its thing!

One of the foot soldiers. Everything about them seems high tech.

Inside the outer rim of the giant bunker.

No doubt as to whom the base belongs to. 😛

Was trying to take a pic showing the super cool looking German fighters and some of our bombers going past.

Motivational poster. 😛

Warning signs and some big missiles! Eek!

Found a way into the main area of the bunker without having to go in through the giant metal doors. 😛

One neat thing so far is that using different weapons and skills will unlock others. Like using a knife for silent sneak attacks ended up opening a skill where I could throw the knife and get them that way as well. 🙂

Hope you have a fabulous day!
