GeneralsJoes supports Cobra Industries

Starting with the G.I. Joe Renegades: Tactics game launch today, and continuing on with the awesome above promotional video, it would seem as if The Hub has kicked things into gear now that we’re within 14 days of the premier of G.I. Joe: Renegades.  Awesome.

The ad above can be found on YouTube (via The Hub) and also on The Hub’s Facebook page as well.  LOVE this.

G.I. Joe: Renegades Tactics Game Online at Hubworld.com

Information comes via the lovehubworld Twitter account that a brand new G.I. Joe: Renegades flash-based game is now online at Hubworld.com!  Screenshots will be forthcoming, but for now, here is some information about the game:

About This Game
Brought to you by Hasbro
Framed for a crime they didn’t commit, the Joes are on the run! Battle your way through 20 different missions to find and defeat COBRA and restore G.I. Joe’s reputation. Choose the right strategies, weapons, and team for each mission. The chase is on!

How To Play
• Click soldiers to move them on the map. Click again to pick a weapon.
• Rescue innocent victims! Survive enemy ambushes! Complete all 20 missions to knock out the enemy!
• Use terrain, vehicles, buildings, and special attacks to beat COBRA.
• Earn medals to upgrade your units, weapons, and combat abilities.
• Each completed mission brings you closer to finding COBRA’s secret Weapons of Mass Destruction — and the proof of your innocence!”

An apparent tactical strategy game, there are dossier screens (many of them “classified”) and a pretty neat looking strategic element to the overall gameplay.  While I haven’t had a chance to fully dive into it yet, on the surface, it looks like a fun one, with some stuff to unlock.  I’ll be trying it after work, that’s for sure!  Or maybe even at work if I can get away with it.  ;)

Check out some screen shots below!

GeneralsJoes Reviews G.I. Joe: Cobra #9

Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been enthusiastically following the G.I. Joe: Cobra ongoing series, even as it deviates from the more standard Cobra coverage and goes into the Coil’s more “cult like” tendencies.  I really enjoy this dynamic between the underground almost supernatural cult angle and the polished brick & mortar corporate structure, and somehow make them all mesh together in a seamless way.

I’m not sure they quite pulled it off by the end of this arc, but they did tell a pretty interesting tale.  I’ll be honest, though, I’m ready to move along and see what Chuckles has in store for us starting again with issue #10.

To avoid spoilers, I will continue the review after the jump.

Thank you

Every day, it seems, I complain about work.  But I have an okay paying job that essentially lets me sit at a computer all day and update this website.

Every day, it seems, I complain about my commute.  But I have a 15 minute drive over paved roads without risk of life.

Every day, it seems, I complain about finances, but at least there are finances to complain about, a country that allows me to spend (or mis-spend) how I see fit, and work as hard as I need to earn the income I want.

Thanks to everyone who has served, it is you who made this possible.  Not the politicians in Washington, but the guys and girls with boots on the ground, metal under their feet, a boat in the water, or wings in the air.  It is because of you that this country is what it is.

Thank you.
