I’M BACK!!!!!!!!!!!

6 Jan

Sorry everyone I haven’t blog recently. I have a good reason. See my mortal enemy, Bloodstone, challenged me to an all out war. I had to fought off demons, zombies, (different zombies then my adorable mutant zombie bunnies)and worst of all politicians. I claimed victory, but I can’t tell you how I did it since I was force to use illegal use of magic. The only reason I’m not in jail is because I swore never to tell it’s secret and I would do community service by helping orphan baby dragons for the next fifty years.. Dragon fire by the way is really hot! I don’t see why the government is so worried about me telling the Secret (not the book), that magic put me in a coma! I barely manage to be awake for Christmas! I’m back though with more reviews, countdowns, and all things magical. By the way if you see a horse face girl with blood dripping out of her mouth. Let me know. I have feeling this won’t be the last time I have seen Bloodstone!

Sneak Peek: The Power Puff Girls are back?

I’m ready….Are you?

Video Game Review- Rhythm Heaven

29 Dec

<Initiating Video Game Review Protocol>

<Loading Information- Please Stand By>

rhythm heaven cover art

Quick Grade for Impatient Readers: 9.0/10 (A highly entertaining game as addicting as it is challenging)

This one actually found this Nintendo DS game a few years ago for a younger sister. The younger sister was never too interested in video games, but this one noticed that she preferred games with cute graphics, simple play mechanisms, and something she didn’t have to invest much time in. Combined with decent reviews found online, this one bought “Rhythm Heaven” for cheap and gave it as a Christmas gift. The younger sister immediately fell in love with it (though still growled at it during the difficult parts), and ever after it became known as the ‘addiction game’ because she had a hard time staying off of it.

This year, the younger sister bought “Rhythm Heaven” as a Christmas present for this one- and the game was just as addicting as she claimed it to be.

As the name implies, “Rhythm Heaven” is of the rhythm genre. You tap, hold, and flick your way through various mini games, each with a different theme. The real challenge (and addiction) comes trying to get through those games. If you don’t follow the beat exactly, it is very easy to fail one of these mini games. The game does give you the option of skipping past games that are giving you difficultly, which can be very helpful. However, getting past a game with a “superb” grade gives you metals which can be used to unlock extra items as well as giving the player opportunity to unlock more content later on.

Pros: As mentioned many times before, the deceiving simplicity of the mini games makes the entire game  addicting. Plus, you are given 50+ games without having to unlock anything extra. You can also set this game aside and come back to it very easily, since almost each game gives you a short practice session if you need it. The younger sister once ignored “Rhythm Heaven” for half a year, and was able to get back into it without any trouble.

Music-wise, it is delightfully upbeat and catchy. You’ll probably find yourself singing some of the songs, especially if you’ve spent a long amount of time trying to get a high score. Humor is light, and may even pull out a few chuckles, but most of the focus is on the game mechanics.

Speaking of, game mechanics are flawless. If you find that tapping or flicking is not working, don’t blame the game. Instead check your DS screen’s sensitivity, or blame yourself. Breaks from the game can help if you find yourself having difficulty getting even the simplest moves done correctly.

Cons: Make no mistake, these games are challenging, even in the early stages of the game. Even a single mistake can mess up your timing, which can cause a domino effect for the rest of the mini game. For some of the sections, even passing with an “okay” can be difficult in and of itself. Luckily, the game offers you a chance to pass the game completely if a particular mini game is failed 3 times in a row.

Final Verdict: “Rhythm Heaven” is an under appreciated game, and one that this one would recommend to any video game player. It’s cheap (under $20 every time this one has seen the game), it’s accessible, and best of all the game is fun. There’s really no reason not to purchase this game unless you don’t have a Nintendo DS or you  hate rhythm games with a burning passion.

I am apologizing!

28 Dec

One big reason I haven’t been up dating over here, is because I’ve been putting my energy into trying to keep GGC Afloat. I have a position there, it was the first one of that magnitude, and I just didn’t want to see a failed job. However, that site is tanking, and its tanking fast, and I know realize that the only thing keeping it afloat was me. Out of originally 10 contributors, I am the only one that wrote continuously, the only one that did her job. So I can honestly say, that I don’t feel like I’m abandoning them, If now that I have a little free time, I can use it to blog over here. My other two writers, are both college students, I fully understand why they haven’t been updating, but as for me, being the founder of this blog, I deeply apologize for my lack of well… Blogging.

I wanted to let you guys in on a little secret that I’ve been cooking up.. I used to work two jobs, and I run a small shop, and my own blog. I was starting to drown under the pressure, but finally I got a major breakthrough, I quit one of my jobs. To me, it honestly just wasn’t worth it. So, now with extra time, comes great responsibility. I cannot wait to ring in the new year with a brand new, more organized NU. Look forward to order and chaos being close buddies at the start of the new year gang, and thanks for hanging in with us.

 

Rebellarre here,

Peace out boy scouts.

Anime Review- Durarara!!

29 Oct

<Initiating Anime Review Protocol>

<Loading Information- Please Stand By>

Quick Grade for Impatient Readers: 9.5/10 (An excellent anime that has a bit of everything, but the story-telling is what makes it so great)

Originally starting out as a light novel by Ryohgo Narita, “Durarara” has spread out to various media formats, including a game on the Playstation Portable and even an internet radio show. The anime itself was done by Brain’s Base, who also did an anime called “Baccano!” It was because of  “Baccano” that this one became introduced to “Durarara.”

The story follows the lives of many characters within the Japanese city of Ikebukuro. The main characters are Mikado Ryūgamine, a teenage boy who moved to Ikebukuro to go to high school with his friend who he has not seen for years, and Celty Sturluson (aka the ‘Black Rider’) who is an Irish dullahan looking for her stolen head while doing various jobs around town. However, in this anime every character has a story to tell and serves to further the main plot (and when this one says “every character,” this one means every character). The main story is about Celty Sturluson trying to get her head back, but it also focuses on rising tensions between the local color gangs, the ‘colorless’ gang The Dollars, and mysterious attacks by the person only known as the Slasher.

Pros: The story and characters are definitely the best part of this anime. Each character has a part to play, and has delightful personality quirks that make them loveable despite their often great flaws. The story itself often has huge twists that completely change how you look at certain characters and that are hard to guess at times (this one was completely shocked by a fair number of the twists, which does not happen often to this one). The story also manages to keep tensions rising while still revealing secrets along the way. The animation itself is overall fair with some very impressive moments, and the music perfectly matches situations and characters as needed. The humor is legitimately funny, though more likely than not it is the characters and their interactions that will make you laugh than the jokes the characters themselves try to make.

Cons: The only real issue this one has with this otherwise amazing anime is that it does not run very long and that it leaves one major point open. “Durarara” currently only has one season as far as this one knows ( or 24 episodes if this one is counting the seasons incorrectly), and while almost all of the questions and problems are solved by the end of this anime it does leave one major plot point unanswered (which this one will not reveal for fear of spoilers). This one hopes that by leaving the plot point unresolved, it means that there is another season planned, but so far there seems to be little to no hope for that.

Final Verdict: A great, great anime that this one would buy if ever given the opportunity. Even if you don’t normally watch action or supernatural series, this one would recommend it anyway. It has plenty of the real-life and romance genre to keep it balanced, and is not that long anyway so a large part of your life would not be required to watch and finish “Durarara.”
