    Daphne & Velma Blu-Ray DVD Movie Giveaway – The Mommy Gamers

    **Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.**

    Daphne and Velma is out on Blu-ray from Warner Bros Home Entertainment as well as Digital and DVD! If news of the smart and resourceful women of the iconic Scooby-Doo franchise coming to life in an all-new mystery isn’t exciting enough, we’ve also got a Digital, DVD and Blu-Ray combo copy to give away.

    About Daphne & Velma

    Jinkies! Film stars Sarah Jeffery (Disney’s Descendants: Wicked World) and Sarah Gilman (ABC’s Last Man Standing) team up to follow the first mystery-solving adventures of Scooby-Doo’s leading ladies. As a long time lover of everything Scooby-Doo I will admit to never being able to get enough of the characters. I have also always been curious about some of their backstories. Especially Daphne and Velma.

    Daphne & Velma start out as best friends who have only ever interacted online. They become best friends in spite of the fact that they have wildly different personalities. The way they met online speaks personally to the online introvert in me, and helps fuel my argument that online friendships ARE absolutely real valid friendships.

    Fate eventually tosses the two girls together in real life and that’s when all the mysterious fun begins. I am not going to spoil the story-line for you, but it definitely has the same mysterious feel of some of the previous Scooby-Doo movies.

    Daphne & Velma is a heartwarming movie that feels just like a straight to DVD film should. Cheesy and entertaining. But if you love these characters you are going to absolutely enjoy this movie. I very much enjoyed seeing how they portrayed Daphne and Velma and hope there are more of these featuring the rest of Mystery, Inc. Gang coming soon.

    Daphne & Velma need your help!

    Help Daphne & Velma solve their latest case by helping them decrypt the footage! Dial the knob and meters to just the right position to unlock the footage and move to the next challenge. You’ll trigger fun & spooky sounds right from the movie in this fun soundboard:

    What to Watch After Stuffing Your Face, with Wine Pairings

    Easter is a time for stuffing your face with too much ham and mashed potatoes, eating a plethora of candy and sending the kids out to hunt for the eggs. Adults, beer hunts, or mini hard alcohol hunts are the way to go, just be sure to grab the beer googles while you’re doing it. Also, before any activities are happening, make sure the ham is in the over and ready to go. We don’t want Aunt Janice to be upset dinner isn’t done on time.

    When you’re all done eating, there is nothing better than entering a food coma with something on your television. We at The Mommy Gamers have compiled a list of television shows and movies that you can watch after the fact. While not every movie is family friendly, we’ll make sure that we annotate movies that children should not be present. Unbutton those pants and take a load off!

    Santa Clarita Diet is great with a bold red, perhaps a Syrah or a Merlot. Santa Clarita Diet has two seasons on Netflix and ready for five main courses and a dessert buffet. Drew Barrymore plays a realtor who is turned corpse eater, which is exactly how you’ll feel after eating all that ham. Joel McHale also stars as husband, Joel, also realtor and man who hides the meat for safe keeping. We give Santa Clarita Diet two thumbs up. Wait, where are my thumbs?

    Peter Rabbit is a great family film to watch after filling up with snacks. We’re sure the children would enjoy this as well seeing as it’s the cutest, and I mean cutest movie out there. A wine pairing for this movie? Grab the hard stuff, grandpa might need it.

    The Mommy Gamers Easter Movies

    Hop is yet another great family movie to watch as the bunny ensues the comedy, causes trouble and helps bring the cute Easter goodness. While Peter Rabbit and Hop may take some of the family time for the day, we suggest another sparkling wine with this special viewing.

    Rise of the Guardians is probably the seasonal movie we will see since you could technically watch this one all year long. The movie has Father Christmas, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy come together to fight off darkness. How wonderful a Sauvignon would be with this film?

    Nailed It is a reality TV series on Netflix that shows elaborate desserts that have been made and the bakers attempt to make them, and the not so wonderful attempts at making them. Either way, bring the sister, brother, uncle, and whomever to watch this. It’s pretty good, and you can place bets within the family on who will win the grand prize of $10,000! A Rose would be fantastic with this show!

    The Mommy Gamers Brie Haddock Movies and Wine ;

    Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a holiday tradition, no matter the holiday you celebrate. I prefer the 1971 version, because I can, but I guess Johnny Depp and his version are alright too if you want to watch Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Either are good, depending on your preference. For both versions of the film, we chose a good Port to go with all the treats, or if you’re more like me, I’ll go for a slightly sweet Riesling.

    Stranger Things will turn things up and scare the jeebies out of you, or just put you on the edge of your seat. Stranger Things is an awesome show that focuses on a group of kids that are playing Dungeons and Dragons. Their game comes to life, sort of, and comes out to get them. They also learn that this case has been going on for years. The town comes together to help the city end the abduction Over the two seasons, you’ll have many “what the heck” moments. For this one, grab the scotch!

    The Mommy Gamers Easter Stranger Things Wine

    Want something newer?

    Jumanji with Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan play is this reboot with a twist! Not only is this a good movie for the whole family and full of adventure, we’ll reach for the box wine on this one so we can plop on the couch with a blanket.

    The Pitches are back in Pitch Perfect 3. These girls head overseas for a USO tour and hope to be picked to go on tour with a rapper. In a turn of events, Fat Amy finds her father, or he finds her and trouble begins. The girls come together and get out of it while supporting one another the biggest changes of their lives. We think a glass of champagne over here will help keep things classy.

    Pitch Perfect 3 Wine The Mommy Gamers Easter

    Daddy’s Home 2 has a great line up, from Matt Damon, John Cena, to Will Ferrell and Mel Gibson. These guys try to come together in a family vacation but it has its ups and downs. While I would love to sit here and tell you all about it, the movie is currently on Redbox for your viewing pleasure. We feel an Old Fashioned or a Gibson to go along with your viewing pleasure.

    Maybe you don’t want the beverage of choice to go with the movie, and that’s okay. Whatever your viewing style is, or genre, we’ve got it covered! Sit back, relax and take that well needed two-hour nap!

    “BEST WORST MOVIES” in March

    COMET TV is rolling out the red carpet for some of the best worst movies on planet Earth. They’re so bad… they’re awesome. Catch films like …

    Creature (1985)
    Gargoyles (1972)

    Johnny Mnemonic (1995)
    Monster Dog (1984)

    Johnny Mnemonic (1995)
    Cyberpunk might be all the rage right now, but Johnny Mnemonic was doing it before it was cool. Keanu Reeves stars as a data courier who traffics top secret information via an implant in his brain. Sounds cool, right? Not when that data ends up acting like a virus that could kill you dead if you don’t get the passwords in time.

    Reveal Trailer: Another Sight

    Pioneering Italian games developer Lunar Great Wall Studios revealed Another Sight, a surreal dreamscape fantasy game, set to launch on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch in 2018.

     

    ANOTHER SIGHT is a surreal fantasy adventure with steampunk elements set in 1899 towards the end of the Victoria era, in London. Built on heart, culture and character, ANOTHER SIGHT brings to life our two leading characters: Kit, a refreshingly bold teenager, who loses her sight after the under-construction London Underground tunnel she was exploring collapses, and Hodge – a mysterious red-furred cat – she meets in darkness. Together, they team up for an adventure through the unexpected, with Hodge an essential companion upon whom Kit will come to rely on.

    Kit and Hodge explore a surreal fantasy world both together and apart, using each of their unique talents to tackle environments and solve intriguing puzzles. Beneath London, in a world inspired by Neil Gaiman’s urban fantasy, Neverwhere, Kit and Hodge encounter a hidden society of the world’s greatest inventors and artistic minds such as Claude Monet, Jules Verne and other long-past cultural icons.

    Marco Ponte, CEO of Lunar Great Wall Studios said: “The world we’ve created for players to explore in Another Sight is so rich and engaging, filled with heart and discovery.” He continued, “We’re delighted to be showcasing Another Sight at GDC this year, and soon, we’ll be showcasing to the public. Another Sight represents our sentiments as a studio, that games should be emotive, with a unique and compelling experience born of cultural influences that provide different levels of meaning into the worlds we create.”

    KEY FEATURES

    EMOTIVE DRIVEN – A story about a girl and her cat companion on a journey beyond sight and the real. A tale of warmth and intrigue is woven throughout the adventure, touching on trust, companionship and losing what we take for granted. Innovative gameplay and a story of heart is galvanized by a soundscape given life by a symphonic orchestra to accent memorable moments between Kit, Hodge and the journey they’re on.

    MASTERS OF THE PAST – Throughout the journey, Kit and Hodge will meet virtuoso artists such as Claude Monet and other cultural historical figures from the past, learning more about the world and dangers it presents. Each encounter visually impacts the world, taking on aesthetics of each creative movement from the famous characters Kit and Hodge meet.

    HIGHLY CREATIVE GAMEPLAY – Use the unique abilities of each character to help Kit and Hodge traverse the world and overcome environmental challenges. The two central characters can split up to investigate different areas of the locale that the other may not be able to reach, with both Kit and Hodge perceiving the world in very different ways, opening up different possibilities for overcoming their adventure.

    About Lunar Great Wall Studios
    Formed in 2016, Lunar Great Wall Studios was founded to create unique and compelling experiences; new and emotional games that inspire and engage. With a wealth of experience, Lunar Great Wall Studios is already crafting a number of projects, the first of which is Another Sight, due to be unveiled at GDC 2018.

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 170: Of Eclipses and Uranus

    For Episode 170 of The Mommy Gamers Podcast Carrie and Marcia are joined by Jeff Hannah, Principal Technical Artist at Volition Games to chat about the release of Agents of Mayhem. Jeff chats about all of the local community hype revolving around the game launch, and Carrie gets extra excited about all the Uranus jokes because #ButtStuff. The ladies introduce a new segment titled “You Know You’re Old When…”, everyone chats about their experience with the solar eclipse, and for some reason something about a poop emoji plunger Kickstarter made it in here too. An awesome listener question regarding the current trend of early access games turns into a really great discussion, which helped make this a very well balanced episode and one you won’t want to miss.

    Shout out to our newest Patreon supporter Dee Phair! If you love our show, and want to support us and get fun rewards including a shout out on the next podcast, you can join our Patreon community here.

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 169: The Period Pack

    The Mommy Gamers Podcast Episode 169

    For Episode 169 of The Mommy Gamers Podcast Marcia and Carrie are excited to be back after a short break. The ladies are joined by guest host Krystal aka Overyacting, an awesome Mom and the Xbox General at the PMS Clan. As a huge fan of Cards Against Humanity Marcia just had to talk about the new Cards Against Humanity for Her deck. It’s the same deck you’d usually get, except the box is pink and it costs $5 more as a jab at the “Pink Tax”. If you’re not familiar with the Pink Tax, it basically represents the fact that women’s products on average cost about seven percent more than similar products marketed to men. You can enjoy the usual CAH quips and pick up that deck on their website here. They also now have a Period Pack of cards to add to your CAH deck. A collection of menstruation themed cards all written while the writers were on their periods. We will be reading those cards to you on Episode 170 of the podcast. You’re welcome!

    Speaking of flow (period jokes…we’ve got plenty) the gaming chat flowed heavily this episode. Mass Effect Andromeda, Friday the 13th: The Game, Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds, ESO online, and Perception. You can read that review of Perception by Mike Robles on our site here. TV chat includes Wayward Pines, Nashville, Lucifer, Orange is the New Black, The Preacher, and Blood Drive. Guys…we had a LOT to talk about this week.

    Marcia is extra fired up about Twitch Affiliates getting a subscription button. Yes, we have a Twitch stream and you can stare at Marcia while she plays video games at www.Twitch.TV/TheMommyGamers if you’re into that sort of thing. You can also now use your Amazon Prime membership to subscribe to the channel for free!

    We also had some great listener questions! If you ever want us to answer your question on the podcast make sure to leave them for us here in the comments, or on our Facebook page.  This week we had some great questions about Twitch streamers that maybe reveal too much? Which then launched into a lively discussion about male Twitch streamers, like Scarfino, who also unfairly use their sexy beards to lure in viewers.

    Shout outs to our new Patreon supporters Derek Weber and Doughboyeeeee. If you are still reading this super long podcast description, love our show, and want to support us and get some fun rewards you can join our Patreon community here. Patreon supporters will be getting Carrie, Marcia, and Krystal reading 69 jokes as bonus content soon!

    And because you can never have too many links, as promised here is the Facebook link to Desirai’s new venture, Libri Labra

    Okay guys, that’s it for this pile of show notes. We will see you again in two weeks for a new episode. Enjoy, please share it around, and keep being awesome.
