Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction (Xbox 2005)

It's that day again.  SUPERHERO SUNDAY!  Today, let's take a look at the only Incredible Hulk game worth playing, Ultimate Destruction.  This open world sandbox does something that other Hulk games have failed to pull off.  It actually makes you feel like the Incredible Hulk.

The beauty of this game is that you can get immersed in just being the Hulk.  You don't even necessarily have to complete the game.  Instead, you can just roam the city destroying everything in your path.  You can pick up cars, light poles, people, trees, anything.  Everything can be used as weapons.  You're able to rip cars in two and use them as boxing gloves!  The Hulk can take down buildings and do elbow drops on tanks.  

There's innocent people that roam the streets that you can either pick up and smash against the pavement or pick up and gently put down and pat them on the head.  It's up to you.  The game manages to get the physics behind the Hulk movement's down.  He can jump incredible distances and run up walls.  He is the brute force of nature that you expect the Hulk to be.  

Villains include the Abomination and Devil Hulk as well as Thunderbolt Ross' Army forces.  It's up to the Hulk to get his machine built in order to cure him of his "Hulkitis" so he can return to living his simple life as Bruce Banner.  But on the way there, it's up to you just rip shit up in the city!  Take down those helicopters.  Smash those buses.  Use that light pole as a baseball bat and home run those soldiers.  It's entirely up to you.  Simply put, this is just a damn fun game.  

There's plenty of missions and side missions to make for max replayability.  When you're done with the missions, just break a lot of shit!  It's ridiculously fun and has enough mind numbing destruction to keep you entertained for hours.

If you only play one Incredible Hulk game, make it Ultimate Destruction.  It's available on Xbox, PS2 and Gamecube.  

What do you think of Ultimate Destruction?  Hit up the comments in the usual place and let me know.

What is the most ICONIC Godzilla To YOU?

I need the community's help on this one.  I'm trying to figure out which version of Godzilla is the definitive version.  As fans, we've all jumped on board during different eras.  To some, the '54 version may be the iconic image that immediately springs to mind when you hear the name Godzilla.  To others, it could be one from the 80's or 90's.  It could also be one of the American versions.  I'm trying to find out which variation is the definitive version that fans think of when thinking of Godzilla.  I hope this makes sense!  
To answer this question, I've created a poll featuring every Godzilla movie (as well as an add your own spot).  Simply pick the movie that contains your ideal mental image of Godzilla.  Don't just pick your favorite movie.  Pick which movie contains that version of Godzilla that's ideal to YOU!  I'll leave the poll up for a week and when all results are tallied, we'll hopefully have an idea of what pops into people…

Alice Cooper / Columbia, SC / 5-13-17

The last time Alice Cooper made a tour stop in Columbia, SC, Jimmy Carter was president, gas was .65 a gallon and Alice was a drunken mess.  Cooper's stop at the Carolina Coliseum on June 29, 1978 was part of his King of the Silver Screen tour promoting his then current album Lace and Whiskey.  Judging by the reaction of the packed crowd that assembled to see him Saturday night, it won't take 39 years to bring his show back to town.

King Kong (1933) Movie Review

With Kong: Skull Island's release this week, it's time to take a look back at the original film that started the long tradition of giant monsters.  1933's King Kong revolutionized the way that special effects were used in film.  Never before had the world seen a movie of this scale and magnitude.  Directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack with special effects by Willis O'Brian, King Kong is simply one of the most important films of all time.
