Ky's Korner #50: Video Gaming Industry May Face Hard Times With Trade Tariff... Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

Howdy Friends!

This issue has me a bit concerned so, I figured I write about it today, and you guys can let me know your thoughts on it all…. Us gamers have to stick together in times like this. Okay, so Trump is now in the process of rolling out trade tariffs. If you are unsure what that means, it’s cool. Let me explain….

A tariff is pretty much a form of taxing used to raise prices on imported goods from other countries. This has the gaming world in an uproar right now….this means games and consoles included, could eventually become much more expensive to purchase, much more costly than anything made domestically… Such as Nintendo and Nintendo Switch.

My guess is that since Trump is a great businessman, (we’ve gotta give him that much) he is looking for ways to get more money for our country and bring us out of this debt.  I get it but, at the same time, I don’t think it’s fair to make us pay more for things that are already so expensive. Is this really necessary?? I’m sure there are other ways to cut corners, wouldn’t you agree??

Rumors leading up to Trump’s election suggested that he and his team were considering a 5% tariff increase or possibly even a 10% increase. Then, just this past Monday, Trump signed an executive order, withdrawing us from the Trans-Pacific Partnership.

Polygon has already reached out to the Entertainment Software Association, early Monday morning, following the withdrawing from Trans-Pacific, just to see how exactly this will affect the gaming industry as a whole. They also asked if the ESA is considering lobbying against the tariffs. I sure hope they do… I would hate to see prices go up so much that us hard workers, cannot afford to keep favorite past time any longer. That would be so morose! I mean we already to our best to keep up with it all and that would make it absolutely impossible for so many. Considering the three largest gaming consoles are manufactured in China.

“We are looking into the issue and can provide more information shortly.” says a spokesperson for ESA.

Now, a big concern of mine is that… this may encourage other countries to tariff products coming from here in the United States. Let’s all hope this doesn’t start some sort of trade war or something.

At this point this is all hearsay, but, Polygon is right, Trump does hold power in this situation, of course, not only is he is our president and that “trumps” anyone else’s opinion (no pun intended lol) but, he has influence over pretty much anything…and if he feels it’s what’s best, and we all know it’s not but, he will make it happen. Let’s face it… a guy like Trump isn’t worried about getting his next gaming fix.. he could care less about us and the gaming world in general. That’s not to say that he is a horrible person and/or President, just that his focus lies in different areas. Whether he a good president or not is beside the fact. Not trying to spark a debate here either friends… lol.

No one is sure exactly how far the impact with reach and, how much it will directly affect the gaming industry but, I am pretty sure it will have some sort of impact, whether it will be huge or not is yet to be seen.

Woah! Hold the presses! Literally just read that we are already having trade issues with Canada. It may not be their gaming industry suffering, mainly their lumber but, still, this does not make me feel any better. Check this out…

How do you feel about all this? Do you think it will affect our industry? Will it affect us in a good way or a bad? What are your thoughts, my friends?? Do you agree with anything he said… would we be sacrificing for the greater good? Not, sure how to feel about all this… I just know I don’t want much of anything to have an increase in prices, especially since nearly everything can be so expensive already, these days. I don’t want this to be one of those situation’s where they keep raising prices just because they see how much money it creates.

Anywho… Let me know your thoughts and comment friends. I know there are quite a few of you that surely have an opinion on this and truth be told, I am not a very political person. If you have more insight on where you think all this will go… Seriously, let me hear it!

Thanks so much for stopping by Ky’s Korner today! Be sure to check in tomorrow!

Ky's Korner #49: Final Episode Of Walking Dead's, New Frontier, Finally Announced... Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

Hello, You Guys!

The fifth and final episode of the Walking Dead’s Telltale series, A New Frontier, now has a release date…May 30th, for Xbox One, PS4, PC, IOS, & Android! We don’t have to wait much longer at all…just a little over a week to go… WooHoo!!!!

I have played all of the first seasons, but I will admit I have been taking a breather from these latest episodes… Looks like its time for me to pick it back up again. This last episode has caught my attention for sure. I just hate waiting for episodes, so I don’t mind getting behind just for the fun of catching up. I’m too impatient when it comes to my gaming I suppose… LOL.

Those of you who are lucky enough to own the season pass then you will automatically be able to download it to your console, of course. A blog post from Telltale explains that this final installment is “The most tailored episode to date.”

“As you know, Richmond Teeters is on the brink of collapse, and the lives of its citizens and all those closest to Javier hang in the balance. The decisions you’ve made and the bonds you’ve nurtured will determine which characters now trust Javi to safeguard all they hold dear as this crisis pushes every relationship past its breaking point.”

“Obviously I’m not going to spoil anything but…. Stuffs about to go down. And don’t ask me about that key Art!” says Telltale. The key art certainly does look impressive… with an accessible motorcycle, new weapons such as swords, and even horses.

I do love that this picks up right where you left off, whatever decisions you have made in past episodes will still affect you in this one. What ever course you took before you will change the course of this episode as well, let’s hope it all plays out just fine. This episode is said to be bringing the whole series to a close. We will now find out what will happen to baby A.J. along with the rest of the thrown together “family.” 

Telltale claims to be releasing both a gameplay trailer and a video showcasing some of the developers, discussing this episode. Both can be found on the GameSpot website so, look for them when you can. I’ll be there too, so let’s do our research together, shall we!?

Apparently, episode 4 set us up for a fantastic finale…. Again I need to get started catching up on this asap! I have to admit, I am very interested to see how they tie everything together in this final episode.

A New Frontier is the 3rd season in the Telltale series, and this is the last episode. It released last year as the first two episodes were released almost at the same time. You can read reviews on Gamespot.com for episodes 1-4 if you have not in fact been following it already.

I know one thing… I am so interested to see how things pan out for Clementine. I mean we’ve seen her grow from a tiny child, a baby even and now she’s grown into a young lady. She’s strong, she’s always been strong, and I want to see her make it through this in one piece! She’s an adored character, and her story is something that well if you’ve played any of the series, you know how special she is. We all love her and want the best for her, the best she can have living in a world over-run by zombies anyway. I am excited to see how things play out for her in the end. I know baby A.J. is the primary concern for many, and I get it but, to me, Clementine is still the baby in my heart. You cant help love her, you cant help but want to see her succeed, she’s just been through so much!!

Here’s the episode 5, New Frontier, fan made trailer, its the only one I could find for you as the official trailer has yet to be released. This will give you a good idea of what to expect either way…Enjoy!

Don’t forget to comment and let me know what you think about all this. Are you happy with how the series ended? Let me once you’ve finished it. I am anxious to read all your comments!

Thanks so much my dear friends for stopping by Ky’s Korner today… Let’s chat again tomorrow, shall we?? Until then!

Ky's Korner #48: Corentin Chevery Just Won $160,000 Gaming...I'm Jealous! Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

Good Morning My Friends!

Nice to have you back! Today, I have a story that, well… I’ll be honest… has me completely jealous! LOLKiddingnot kidding… You will probably feel the same here pretty soon…

This past weekend, at the FIFA 17 Ultimate Team Championship, all the major FIFA players met in Berlin to prove who was the world’s best, the world’s #1 champ, while millions of fans tuned in to watch….

Corentin Chevery, a professional 19-year-old gamer for @Team_vitality and Xbox One from France just won over $160,000 in the FIFA 17 Ultimate Team Grand Final!! That’s right, you counted those zero’s correctly!! Oh, my goodness friends… I need to game professionally too, seriously…Game On!! I bet your thinking the same thing, huh!?

Corentin can be found on Twitter @Vitality_RocKy & On Facebook @https://www.facebook.com/pg/VitalityRocKy/about/?ref=page_internal …Just in case you now want to follow him and his career. I know he has sparked my interest, he is now my 19-year-old hero. I want to be just like him when I grow up!! LOL 

Chevery is the best FIFA player in the world right now. Most people in the gaming world know him by his gamer tag “Vitality Rocky.” He beat out the most talented FIFA players from around the world by winning the Xbox One tournament then moving onto the PlayStation tournament and, he took first place there too, making him the all-around champion.

He went up against some of the very best including, Ps4 Champion, “Shellzz” from the United Kingdom. “Rocky” won the first leg of the game and went on to carry a 2-1 lead heading into the final. During the game he fell a bit behind, going 2-0 down, then he found himself doing his best to make a comeback from a 3-1 deficient late in the game. He knew he needed at least one more goal for the win. Fortunately, he made his comeback and was crowned the champion! Britain-born Shellzz, aka Shaun Springette & Rocky have been long time rivals so for serious FIFA gamers, this as the showdown of a lifetime… and they did not disappoint! 

Shellzz is known for his counter-attacks and this proved to be a bit of a problem for Rocky, throwing him off his game for a while. Rocky is what you call a more procession-orientated player, so this threw his gameplay style for a loop…at first. Rocky was smart and turned to his legend cards to bring the heat, and eventually, this technique worked big time.

The championship hosts gaming teams consisting of the best players of today as legends from the past. These players are found through online gameplay winnings and earning cash awards. Players endure 16 rounds and must keep from losing two or more games to maintain their stats. Losing doesn’t mean you lose it all, it means you drop to a lower round but, have a chance to climb back to the top by winning their next matches so, luckily when you’re down, you’re not necessarily out, however, you must work extra hard to make your comeback.

FIFA creators, EA Sports opened the entire catalog of players for the competition. This meant the best players in the world would be playing with the best players in the game. This made for very entertaining rounds.

This tournament consists of 5 months of qualifying and regional mini-tournaments. Luckily, Vitality Rocky was still able to qualify even after losing in the finals of the European Tournament. He was able to make up for that loss and then some by claiming the overall title.

To my surprise… I learned that EA Sports has been focusing on making FIFA an official competitive E-Sport. The payoff for winners can mean winning a very substantial amount of money. To follow the progress of the sport, you need to follow EA on Twitter @EASPORTSFIFA. Seriously, I mean, who doesn’t want to play games competitively for the big bucks!? I know I do… in fact, who knows where Saljack will be in the future, maybe we will be competitively gaming too… Who knows but, you gotta follow us to find out!

If you are like me, you probably would like to see the gameplay that won Rocky the tournament, well…. I found some video… let’s see how he took the win, shall we?

Do you feel inspired by Rocky’s story of triumph? I know I do!!

Thanks so much for stopping by Ky’s Korner my friends!! I Sincerely hope you have enjoyed reading this… come back tomorrow for more exciting gamer news!

Mini Case Study: The Social Gamer and Why Older, Iconic Video Games Are Still Relevant to You. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

“Timeless” is not just a reference to beauty. Whether or not you regularly play them, you have played some of these at one point and understand the references to them. Something about the simplicity of the controls, bizarreness of the premises, and primitiveness of the animation makes them unforgettable. Though they started showing up as early as the seventies, today’s kids will still recognize some of these, if only by the concept. The idea of a social gamer some may consider a misnomer, but since the advent of our fascination with video games, social gaming has always been a huge reality.

Video games bring people together, they always have. Before consoles were in the home, arcades were great gathering places for some wholesome fun. People would take turns with friends or play together in multiplayer games like Street Fighter, Galactica, and the iconic Space Invaders. Friendly competitiveness and healthy fun were no longer limited to the realm of sport. As technology changed, so did our social habits. Bars and cafes have popped up with classic, iconic video games as their selling point. We are no longer limited to pub trivia games or karaoke for fun together: you can instead order a pint and proceed to beat your best friend at 1942 or show off your Pacman skills. Sure a pint or two could affect your ability to play, especially racing games or anything to do with roads and reaction time, such as Out Run, Pole Position, even Frogger but the only real-world consequence of operating an arcade game while impaired is trash-talk from your friends and a headache the next day. If you are running a bar or pub that is popular with people in their 20s and 30s, why haven’t you obtained at least one of these machines yet? They are a Millennial magnet!

Mini Case Study: The Social Gamer and Why Older, Iconic Video Games Are Still Relevant to You. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

We build, we solve problems, we strategize, we fight evil, try to save the world, save the princess, shoot things, sort things, all without those pesky real world consequences aforementioned.

What appeals to us about video games is directly drawn from what interests us in the physical world. We build, we solve problems, we strategize, we fight evil, try to save the world, save the princess, shoot things, sort things, all without those pesky real world consequences aforementioned. We get a sense of accomplishment from achieving the goal within each game, which makes games more significant to us than merely a pastime. Depending on the game, your strategic thinking and response time can even benefit from the repeated practice.

More than anything, though, gaming is a social activity that connects us in different ways.

This will seem nonsensical to someone who holds the antiquated notion that video games are the pastime of the angry, antisocial nerd. Part of enjoying any type of media is sharing in that enjoyment with others. Reading books, listening to music, watching plays, used to be the media that dominated our consumption and later our conversations. These were all passive types of media, and now we have the opportunity to directly influence our favorite digital media pastime using our abilities and desires to affect the outcomes.

Some gamers are better than others, that is a given, but games are still a lot more inclusive than sports (another social activity), where natural, physical gifts play a significant role. There has to be an exception to this, of course, and that is Dance Dance Revolution and pretty much any Nintendo Wii, Xbox Kinect or PlayStation Move game as well as VR and AR, which are just around the corner. These games will exclude some people with disabilities, but for many who dislike the sedentary nature of other types of games, this offers a unique alternative. These motion-based video games are enhanced by the physical presence of other people, especially the dancing games, singing games and the iconic game Wii Sports. There is much laughter to be had and technique to discuss together and of course some well natured ripping on your fellow players. Thankfully, iconic video games and characters like Mario Brothers and Legend of Zelda transitioned nicely into this technology. This tech also gave rise to new titles incorporating iconic movies such as Star Wars and the Harry Potter series allowing the gamer to feel a part of the action with a flick of the wand or the slash of a lightsaber. Even the most passive gamer that was a fan of these movies had to take a shot at defeating these legendary foes.

Without the aspect of physical activity, games still bring people together. The stories within them speak to everyone. These games cross oceans and appeal to people of different cultures due to the archetypes and story elements that appear in the mythology of every culture.

Heroism is the obvious, biggest theme. A good hero story appeals to every person, so involving a person in a story of heroism, where they are in control of the outcome of every challenge, is appealing to everyone. It is taking one from listening to a story and turning it into something more captivating because of the player’s involvement with the tale. An especially devoted player will even feel an actual sense of pride, as though he has accomplished some great set of challenges like Theseus or Mario and Luigi. Beating smaller challenges and then the “big boss,” or the main bad guy at the end, is classically what the hero does. And after you have achieved your heroic quest you need to brag about it to all of your friends, both online and off.

These games cross oceans and appeal to people of different cultures due to the archetypes and story elements that appear in the mythology of every culture.

Often a hero’s accomplishments are necessitated by the common themes of love and having his true abilities tested. Who doesn’t need more love in their lives, right? The gamer carefully weaves his character through the many perils in his path to rescue a princess, spouse, future spouse, family member, or someone else who is in peril. Besides the glory of having overcome the trials that have been thrown at him along the way, the hero’s good and correct actions must come with a reward in the form of the greatest thing we can accomplish together: love. After all, you are fighting for someone quite worthwhile, someone quite worth risking death by turtle shell for. It is interesting that heroes will often have either super powers such as Hercules’ strength or Luke Skywalker’s force. That or they will have some other exceptional quality or skill such as Beowulf’s bravery or Chun-Li’s fighting abilities. Even if he comes from humble beginnings, the hero will be tested to the point that his abilities, previously unknown, are revealed and used to save the day, reap the rewards and fall in love. Something we all aspire to.

Everyone wants to triumph over evil, and that will normally come in the form of a villain unless you are playing a building or social network game such as Sims or Farmville. It could be argued, however, that friends who send you invitations to play Farmville more than once are the villains in real life. The villains from video games have only gotten bigger and scarier as graphics have improved and the maturity of players with them. Through their actions, the hero is forced to take on a quest of recovering something or someone, revenge, saving mankind, or anything more specific to the plot. These villains may be even more effective in inspiring loathing and fear than their literature counterparts because they are actively getting in our way. Shere Khan is far more deplorable to me if he is attempting to bring about my demise rather than Mowgli. Shao Kahn from Mortal Kombat isn’t nearly as infuriating when one simply reads about him. The immersion in the story makes it that much more satisfying when they are finally defeated… by you!

While they are not always villainous, monsters and other creatures in iconic video games are also taken from directly or inspired by stories that have been with us for centuries. In Warcraft alone, you can come across Hydras, Chimaerae (Chimera), Krakens, and Hippogryphs (Hippogriff). Dragons are inevitable and span the few decades we have had gaming, like in the King’s Quest series or (once again) the long-running Warcraft with their dragonkin. Darker, scarier monsters that 90s kids may have been sheltered from fighting against by their parents existed in the realms of Quake and Doom, some even inspired by H.P Lovecraft. Looking at the history of video games, is the occurrence of protagonist monsters similar to that of antagonistic ones? Or are most simply like animals, who don’t choose a side? Has this been the case in classical myths and stories? It is definitely something to think about and spend hours discussing with your social circle, don’t you think?

Games can help to bridge between cultures.

Games are an all-in-one manifestation of story-telling, acting, challenging, socializing, all who can bring us together and make us feel good. They share aspects of how we relate as a species but also the timeless tales and archetypes that will likely always be with us, even into the next stage of our interactive media. Iconic video games are the ones most recognizable to even those who would not consider themselves “gamers.” You have, at least once, said or heard someone say: “Finish him!”, Or have recognized theme music. Like Shakespearian quotes and dance moves, elements of these games pervade culture and are points of reference as well as yet another thing people can relate to each other on. They can even help to bridge between cultures. Before, we could have read the same book or watched the same movie as someone, but never been able to share our loathing or love for it unless they were local to us. Now, we can play the same game with someone on the other side of the world and communicate with them in real time, either on the same team or as opponents.

To reap the benefits of these games, however, you needn’t devote the hours or financial resources that serious gamers do. Take an interest when people are playing at parties. Ask about what is going on and try it yourself. Visit arcades with friends; download Tetris or similar, older games on your phone. You’ll likely find enjoyment in at least one game, and you’ll have yet another connection to the humanity around you.

Ky's Korner #47: Tekken 7 Coming In June! Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

Hey, Friends!

I have just read this, some of you may already know but… A new Tekken is coming June??? DO WHAAAAT!!!??? I am too excited!! Oh, my goodness guys… back in the day, I played this game out! I still love it… I read this at felt like a giddy little kid all over again… Can’t help it! Though I have to say it…. I loved Tekken as a kid like I said but, there have been many in between and to me, they got a little cheesy. I’ve taken some time off from the series, and with this new, it seems it is time to get back to it! With that being said this one looks amazing…. Seems like they have moved in a much more mature direction and the graphics are more than up to speed. I’m anxious to dive right in to find out more so… Let’s do this!

One thing I noticed right away are the graphics… While in past Tekken games, the style had a very animated feel, this one is much more realistic. I love this! I think its cool to see these characters as real people, or as real as it gets anyway. They really did a fantastic work of keeping them pretty much the same, they just put a little more life into each one.

All of our favorites are there, Marshall Law, Paul Phoenix, Ling Xiaoyu, Eddie & King!! King was always my favorite! They’ve added some really sweet new one’s characters too. First of all, we’ve got Akuma, from Street FighterUmmmm Yeah!! Then there’s Kuma II… a massive grizzly bear, son of the original Kuma and taught by Heihachi Mishima himself, in the art of Kuma Shinken and Claudio Serafino, an Italian Exorcist!

Tekken 7 is said to be the final chapter in the series but, we all know that could change but, as of right now that’s the deal. This series has continued for over 20 years now. That’s a crazy long run! It has definitely passed the test of time, I’d say. That’s what a classic is all about, and this game surely is an all-time classic! Most of us gamers grew up playing this. I mean, it’s almost a cult classic.

The ending is said to be epic, and the journey is long and emotional. Member of the Mishima Clan fights one another for control of a global empire… all the while putting the balance of the world at risk. There’s bad blood between some of these characters, stories that go way back and this time around those characters are out to get their revenge… and if this really is the last one, as they say, every score will be settled, that makes for a lot of story content.

Tekken 7 is one of the only 3D fighting games out there right now… that alone makes me want to buy it immediately. I bet the Rage system is excellent… In fact, they’ve added more moves, perfect for when you find your health running low. In 7, when your life hits below 33%, your rage is automatically activated. You have to choose between Rage Drive or Rage Art Rage drives give you the ability to enhance your moves to create more damage, and Rage Art is…. It pretty much keeps your opponent from sticking that last final, finishing blow.

I cannot honestly say that the storyline for Tekken has been the absolute best, but I can say, that this one takes us all the way back to the beginning… telling us the whole story in more detail than ever.

Namco has also introduced a VR mode this time around. From what I have read, while this is interesting it, only seems to make the graphics worse. I mean if were doing the whole VR thing then, it should be so cool it blows our minds, and from people are saying, it’s not even worth using. There are two modes… One that lets you play in a 360-degree arena, which sounds amazing, does it not? But… apparently, this just makes the characters look sloppy….and the other version just allows you to purchase hidden items or upgrade what you’ve got. Not a lot was put into this VR mode it seems. The saying is true though folks, you can’t always believe what you read (except for here at Ky’s Korner of course…I always bring you the facts my friends, I got you!) So I will have to play this myself and see what I think versus all the critics. What about yall? Are you all excited for this new edition to the classic. I hope it brings the game up to speed, I know it still has a huge following… I mean we are talking about it right now, so there’s that… LOL. 

Tekken 7 Trailer:

Awesome isn’t it friends!? Well, as always, thank you for stopping by Ky’s Korner. I do hope you have enjoyed the read! Until next time!

BOOK 4, P6: Odious Optimism - Meet The Family. Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned.

The now alert group of eight gasped at the hideousness of The Hasenpfeffer as he leaped from the rafters of the ceiling and landed without a sound on the floor.

Today we continue with part six of book 4. Hope you enjoy!


“Well, well, well,” the Professor said as he peered through his glasses at Dr. Zu and put down the newspaper he had been reading.

The front page of the paper on the boardroom table in the worn down old warehouse read, “Champions Save City: Citizens Have a New Hope.”

“It seems that there is a new team of do-gooders in town,” he said with a scowl “and to top it off they call themselves The Champions! Little cocky don’t you think my dear?”

Dr. Zu flashed the professor her sexiest smile, “You are just jealous you didn’t think of it first for your gang of psychos.”
“Not at all, in fact, I would never undermine my group of killers with such a name. Actions speak far louder than monikers. We shall see which of us will be truly called champions in the end” the Professor replied with an impish grin. “Let the games begin.”

He then turned his evil smile towards Has, “Has my dear boy, it’s time we messed with our new family. Are you ready?”

The Hassenpfeffer just nodded and ran off to the back room.

The Professor and Dr. Zu headed from their interior strategy room into the vast expanse of the abandoned port side building.

In front of them sat eight psychopaths still groggy from a sedative designed to attack their DNA and leave distinct markers for future use. Each one seated on a metal chair hands shackled to a chain attached to the concrete floor.

As The Villains’ heads began to rise one by one and come to terms with their disorientation, The Professor began to speak.

“Good morning my lovelies, well afternoon actually but nevertheless, welcome to my humble abode, I have big plans for you. You have all been chosen to assist me in the most important thing you will do in your miserable lives. Yes, yes I know it’s incredibly cliché, world domination yadda yadda, but I am doing it differently, and you will play a fundamental role in my success. Every super villain inevitably fails. In every movie, every game and every story they always lose. Why is that you would ask if you were not still suffering the effects of my designer dehabilitator? Well, I shall tell you. Every super villain has a weakness, a penchant for the mushier gushy aspects of this mortal coil. They always attain their billions then use their money to kill off the people who they perceive to have done them wrong. When they achieve their goal, they will force the right people of the world to bow to them and acknowledge their greatness. Predictable. Boring. I have no such weakness. I don’t even like humans; I think you are a waste of this planet’s resources. Quite simply I want to kill all of you and replace you with a better version of the citizen, like Has here.”

The now alert group of eight gasped at the hideousness of The Hasenpfeffer as he leaped from the rafters of the ceiling and landed without a sound on the floor. The hairy half man half rabbit half….something stared at them and smiled baring his jagged and razor sharp teeth. He then raised his arms over his head and thrust them forward violently causing the chairs the Villains sat on to go careening and clanking across the floor behind them.

Now that he had their full attention The Professor continued his soliloquy.

“You are all bad, bad people. I know I’ve been watching you. You are also very, very good at what you do, so I am going to use you to achieve my goals. First a few introductions. Mike this is Karl, he killed your father I am sure you two will have a lot to talk about. Mike, Hooligan, and Karl this is Suzy. She will kill both of you simply because you are men after she seduces you of course. Suzy, Karl, Mike and Hooligan this is Lady Tarragon. She will kill all of you simply because she really, really enjoys killing people and you happen to be in her relative proximity” he egged them on.

“Now, this fantastic specimen of beauty is the notorious Dr. Zu. My wife and way, way worse than the legend you may have heard. She is happy to not only kill you but she enjoys rearranging your corpse afterwards. You should see her work it really is stunning” The Professor went on, “and this is Has, I made him and he is way better than you.”

At that moment The Hasenpfeffer raised his arms, and the group of villains rose into the air their hand still shackled to the floor. As they hung upside down, their arms straining from the effects of reverse gravity the Professor approached each one a mere inch from their faces.

“And I am the Professor. I can and will kill all of you. You now work for me. As for your ill will towards your fellow pychos, myself, Dr. Zu and of course Has here that will have to wait. Thanks to me and my genius you physically cannot harm any member of the team” he said with an eerie laugh.

Perhaps it was the blood racing to their heads, but the Villains somehow believed that the weird little man was telling the truth.

“Put them down now Has and let them try to take their shots, unshackle them.” He said as he and Dr. Zu walked out of the building.

The Has threw his arms in a downward motion, and the group of eight came crashing to the floor. Has then made a slashing motion at each of their chains and the chains broke in two. He then left out the same door as his creator.

Lucas looked on from his hiding place and finding it hard to control his laughter ran out the back door to join his new family.
