Bear with me, working on the Error 503 issues

Hey, folks.  As many of you have likely noticed, GeneralsJoes has been somewhat rife with Error 503 problems over the past several weeks.  I’m continuing to work on these issues, and the latest attempted fix was a theme change to a more minimal theme without the strict formatting.

We’ll see how it works.  You may see some quirkiness going forward as I try to iron out these problems.  The webhost doesn’t seem to have an idea what’s up, and has been blaming a rogue script from the WordPress install.  They can’t seem to isolate what that script is.

Fingers crossed that we can figure it out.  Thanks for your patience.

Latest G.I. Joe: Battleground Event – The Dreadnok Trials starts tonight!

They gave us a few days to recover, but DeNA is back on the G.I. Joe: Battleground Events bandwagon tonight with the new Battle Simulator! Fans who have been playing for a little while got some exposure to the Battle Simulator with the event that gave us Pathfinder, Barricade, and Tunnel Rat a short few weeks ago. Well, we’re at it again, this time with the Dreadnoks!

Featuring the Battleground debut of Road Pig, Zanzibar, and Burn Out, and introducing exclusive card Metalhead! Looks like another fun ride, expected to start tonight around 5:00pm Pacific. The full release can be seen below along with sneak previews of Road Pig and Metalhead.

G.I. JOE: BATTLEGROUND, an action card-battle mobile game based on the original G.I. JOE universe, is launching a new in-game event today called Battle Simulator – The Dreadnok Trials.

Who:

DeNA and HASBRO are excited to bring Battle Simulator – The Dreadnok Trials event to G.I. JOE: BATTLEGROUND.

What:

The Battle Simulator is online again and this time around, the JOES have control of the Battle Simulator. JOE Squads from around the world are in for a tough challenge with a Dreadnok program that introduces some mean customers including Road Pig, Burn Out and Zanzibar.

These anarchists are going to go all-out on JOE Squads, so bring your “A” game if you want to make it through the truly lethal top floors of this Battle Simulator. Top players will earn the hyperactive and deadly accurate Metal Head to add to their COBRA Squads.

When:

Battle Simulator – The Dreadnok Trials event premieres today, Monday, August 5 through Monday, August 12.

GeneralsJoes Reviews G.I. Joe: Retaliation “Extended Action Cut” on Blu-Ray

It was a little bit tough keeping track of all the various releases of the G.I. Joe: Retaliation film, but the one that really seemed to be rising to the top for most G.I. Joe fans was the Best Buy exclusive “Extended Action Cut” Blu-Ray. And one watch of the film really exemplified that to me.

The Extended Action Cut features nearly 13 minutes of additional footage, and while you might not think so, that 13 minutes made a world of difference. Yes, I’ve already reviewed the standard release Blu-Ray, but now, I’ve also reviewed the Extended Action Cut and also did a little breakdown of the most important (in my view) footage that was included in the film.

GeneralsJoes Reviews G.I. Joe: Retaliation “Ultimate” Duke

There’s already been plenty of discussion about whether or not this version of Duke is truly “ultimate”, and I guess it depends on your perspective.  I think going by the movie universe he certainly qualifies, looking pretty much like a movie version of the character should look with an extremely movie accurate uniform.

Whether or not you agree with the terminology or the overall aesthetic, this figure is pretty fantastic.  Check out my G.I. Joe: Retaliation Review Page, or simply click the link below.
