Last Despicable Me Movie?

Rotoscopers.comOnce again another Despicable Me movie has come out for our enjoyment. This one is about Gru who not only gets his wife and himself fired for the secret agent organization, but learns that his father that he thought was dead recently passed away and that he has a twin brother.

I thought it was hilarious to find out how good his twin, Dru has it. He’s rich, lives in a mansion, everyone loves him and he has a full head of hair. Instantly, Gru was jealous of him because of everything he had , but learns to get over it. Also, he learns that being a villain was part of the family business and that Dru has absolutely no talent being evil and wants Gru to help him channel his inner evil.

While that’s all happening Lucy is trying to have mother/daughter bonding time with them. I think my favorite part in this is when Margo unknowingly is forced to participate in a local village ceremony that leads to this poor boy thinking that he and Margo are engaged. Rule # 1 of traveling is never participate in foreign activities that you don’t know all the details to.

The part where the boy gets rejected and is super dramatic about it is the funniest thing ever. I watched that one scene three times over.

I feel like this is going to be the last Despicable Me movie because I don’t think they can drag it out anymore than they’ve already have. It was a fun ride while it lasted and it’s always funny to watch the minions be stupid about something. I really enjoyed these movies.

Sorry if you guys feel like this post is really short compared to the others.

RIME

mobygames.comWarning: This post does contain spoilers!!!

Hello everyone!

Today’s game is going to be about the adorable RIME game that was developed by Tequila Works and Tantalus Media. I know I should have talked about this game a long time ago, but you guys know how it is outside of the internet. We got to deal with things in reality, ugh!

Anyway, I really loved this game it was so cute and adorable with a hint of mystery. It’s about a boy who washed up on the shore on an island that looks like had an ancient civilization on it at one point. Obviously, he’s trying to find a way off the island with the help of a spirit fox. As the game progresses, you can’t help but make up your story about what happened and what’s going on with this island.

My theory I got was that this was an ancient civilization that fell because they couldn’t get anymore power from the tower. As the civilization died the royal family was lost and forgotten, but destiny has brought the lost heir back to the island hundred of years later. So, he can restore it back to its former glory.

gameup24.wordpress.comThat’s what I got out of it, but found out in the end that I was wwwaaayyyy off from the truth. With the island expanding into a world and with unknown dark, blob monsters chasing me all over the place the ending revealed to me the truth of the story. It turns out the boy was dead all along and he was being guided by the fox through what I’m guessing was limbo to reach heaven. Each new part of the island represented one of the 5 stages of grief and the blob monsters represented the dark souls that lost on the way to heaven which is why they were chasing him everywhere. It was kind of a ‘if I’m not going to make it neither are you’ situation, so they wanted to drag him down.

Basically, the boy knew he was dead but didn’t want to accept it and tried to find a way back to his father. In the end, he finally accepted that not only was he dead, but was never going to go back to the land of the living and accepted his fate and went to heaven.

When I saw these scenes at the end that put it all together I was like “Nnnnnnnnoooooooo”. I was so mad that we went though all that and not get a happy ending and to find out that he was dead the whole time. You really get attached to him and the fox and some of these puzzles got me a little. The most frustrating puzzles were the ones where I was getting chased by the giant bird all the time, you couldn’t go anywhere without it on you ass.

Even if you’re not the type of player that likes to make sure you collect everything in the game, I really recommend that you do because it gives vital hints to what happened in reality. This is a game for everyone especially for beginner players that like adventure and puzzle games. I really liked this game, it really played with my heart in this one and I hope when you guys play it, you’ll like it just as much.

Is Fire Emblem: Echoes a tough game?

Nintendo UK.comThis is a game I never got around to playing until now. It was developed by Intelligent Systems and was made a while ago before I got my hands on it. The story revolves around two people Alm and Celica who were pretty much attached the hip when they were kids. But, after an attempted attack from a vicious knight named Slayde who tried to kidnap Celica after recognizing her as the lost princess of the country. Having being separated for years, they obviously take different paths in order to bring peace back into the world.

Warning: Possible spoilers ahead

Alm becomes a warrior and a leader to the rebellion force that calls itself the “Deliverance”. The rebellion’s goal is to take out King Rudolf who rules the opposing country that’s trying to take over theirs.  They all hope that Alm can take out King Rudolf before things get too bad. On the other hand, Celica has become a warrior priestess who believes that using violence is wrong (even though she’s taking out people left and right herself) and that there is a peaceful solution to this crisis.

Her solution is to find Mila who is the goddess of their country that is supposed to be keeping their country, at least, nice and peaceful. Find her and ask her why is she letting everything go to shit lately? I think it’s painfully clear that something must have happened to her if she’s in charge of making sure nothing happens to the humans in her domain.

Fire Emblem GodsWhile I’m talking about Gods and such might, as well talk about Duma and Mila. Duma and Mila ancient gods that happen to be siblings, too. When it came time to rule over the humans they both disagreed about how they should be ruled. Duma thought that only the strong should be in control have all the wealth and power and rule over the weak. While Mila thought that everyone should be equal and share the wealth and prosperity. Since, they couldn’t agree they decided to split the world in half so each god had a place to rule and made a contract with each other that forbid the other from ever interfering with their side of the world.

Doing so would mean total war.

Personally, I understand their ruling styles, but the same time I see the flaws in it. Duma believes that as long as there is a strong leader then the weaker people will be led to prosperity. What actually happens is strong people becoming evil, angry and only thinking about themselves while the weaker people become poor and treated like dirt. During Mila’s rule, she’s the complete opposite of Duma, believing that as long as everyone is equal and share everything things will be just dandy. Problem with is the people became spoiled, weak and even when people were starving to death because they were too nice and gave away everything they had. So, its same to say that if they combined their ways then the world would end up just right.

Now would I consider Fire Emblem Echoes a hard game? It’s a bit of a challenge I will say that. Is it an impossible game to beat? No, but I do wish I could have lowered the difficulty a little bit because for one if one of your players dies they are permanently dead until you find a revival well (which doesn’t even allow you to revive all your characters). These wells are a bit hard to find, so you better be sure that you’ve searched every nook and cranny when you’re in a dungeon or could have missed it without knowing it.

Smashboards.com

Also, I didn’t even know about the revival wells until I did some digging in the internet about what to do about bringing dead players back into the game. It wasn’t even in the tutorial which I  don’t even know why. I would like to think that would have been a nice little detail to tell the gamer playing this freaking game. Also, one other thing that you figure out, eventually, is that you need to talk to everyone just in case they want to join your group. For me, I like to have as many people in battle as I can, but it sucks when most of them have died and I haven’t gotten to a well yet.

BehindTheVoiceActors.comI’m loving some of these characters though. One of my favorites is Gray who is that strong, confident and funny type that says things that just make you fall in love with him right away. Another favorite is Faye (even if I’m a little concerned about her) she’s another childhood friend of Alm and has been in love with him for as long as she can remember and that love as not only grown, but is bordering total obsession. During the talks they have during some of the battles, you can tell that she would do anything for Alm and makes it painfully clear that she’s into him, but he doesn’t seem to be taking the hint. It kind of makes you feel sorry for her.

The storyline is really good and the characters are really interesting. I’ve had several theories about Alm’s identity throughout playing this game, but I’m not going to tell you who he really is. But, if there is one thing we do know it’s that Alm and Celica do not end up together. No matter how much we want them to, they don’t. That’s not really a spoiler if you’ve watched the beginning cutscenes. I’ve enjoyed playing this game and if you like RPG/adventure games then you will, too.

Otakon 2017

KnowYourMeme.comHello everyone!

Once again, I’ve got another convention to tell you about. It’s about the all and famous Otakon that happens every year. This year they decided to hold the event in Washington D.C. instead of doing it in Baltimore like they usually do. Granted, I haven’t been to Otakon in about 3 years, but that’s okay.

I’m guessing a lot more people kept showing up every year so they probably had to choose a bigger location than the last one which  is understandable. Otakon is the second most largest convention in the country, so that’s a good reason to go besides liking to just go to cons all the time. A lot of the little things have changed since the last time I went to this con and one of them being the registration. Yes, you can still pre-register or wait until you get there and pay for your badge there, but this time you don’t get the option of doing a single day pass anymore. Your only option is the 3 day pass which is $100.

DMJPhotography.comSo, I suggest that you get your money’s worth and go all three days or make sure you think its worth $100 for attending a day or two if you can’t do all three. Obviously, I thought it was worth it, but other people might not think so.

Their was plenty to do there. Talking to other fellow fans, taking pictures of cosplayers, enjoying the video game room, buying stuff at the dealers room and a lot more. If you don’t plan on spending a lot then I would avoid the dealers room at all costs. Since, they decided to use a different location than last time, the places layout was a lot more confusing to me even with a map. I couldn’t tell you how many times I asked someone for directions.

Even with my loss for direction during my time there, it was still an awesome event and if I’m available next year I’ll definitely be back again.

Utawarerumono The Anime

Youtube.comHello everyone!

I said that I was going to talk about this a while back, but now I’m finally going to talk about the anime show “Utawarerumono”. I played the game earlier and it was super awesome, so expectations for the anime were pretty high.

I wasn’t surprised that a lot of the events in the game happened in the anime, as well. The only differences between the two would have to be that they went into more detail about the people who we fight against in the war so we get a better grip about who they are. Also, most of the lewd moments and mentions in the game aren’t in the show to my utter disappointment. I was kind of looking forward to that.

For those of you, who haven’t played the game or watched it yet. It’s about a guy named, Haku, who wakes up with amnesia to find out that his world is no longer his own. Giant insect creatures, giant acid blobs, magic, people with cat ears and tails are now the norm in this world and he travels with his savior and friend, Kuon, to the capital in order to find his place in the world.

What he doesn’t know is that his life is about to get a whole lot more complicated once he gets to the capital.

All of the characters in the anime are just as hilarious as they were in the game and it still keeps that mystery and action element going the whole time. I truly loved it and hope that there is more coming soon. If you guys don’t want to watch it or play it then the manga is always out there for your enjoyment. If your into action, adventure, mystery and hot cat-eared people everywhere then this is definitely for you. Enjoy!

D. Grayman

MyAnimeList.netHi guys! I hope you guys are having a wonderful week like I am, even though, I’m enduring a horrible heat wave at the moment. If any of you live where I am then you know the struggle.

Today’s anime is D. Grayman which was written by Katsura Hoshino. It mostly revolves around a boy named Allen Walkers who was born with a strange and deadly arm which you learn later in the show is his akuma weapon. He lives in a world where akuma are constantly being created by the Millennium Earl and are killing people in order to evolve and get stronger. Akuma are hideous monsters that were once a person who had died, but if a person wants you back hard enough and you make a deal with the Millennium Earl, he’ll bring that soul back from the dead only to order it to kill you and become a akuma. Bad deal, right?

Personally, if someone I knew died and I was really mourning their death and someone came up to me with that offer I would most likely have 2 reactions: I would think your crazy and ask what’s the catch. We all know that nobody does anything for free even if they go up to you and say its free. There is always some kind of ulterior motive behind it.

BehindTheVoiceActors.comAnyway, with Allen Walker’s own personal hatred towards the Earl, he went to find the Black Order to become and exorcist. They’re some funny freaking characters in this show my 2 favorites would have to be Kanda and Komui. Kanda is a samurai exorcist with a mysterious past that I really hope they reveal one day. Kanda may seem to have a black heart and be cruel as hell, but later you realize he’s just a grumpy guy that doesn’t want to wear his emotions on his sleeve. I think he’s totally adorable to when you watch him be grumpy and angry for no reason.

Komui is this crazy genius with an extreme sister complex. He likes making tools and machines that most of the time don’t work and end up attacking people. I think the reason anyone puts up with it is because he’s the chief at the Black Order. He worked hard for that title, so he could be with his sister again who is also an exorcist.

Pinterest.comForgot to mention that akuma are considered to be imaginary creatures as far normal people are concerned.  Well, at least until they see one with their own eyes that is. Not everybody can become an exorcist, you have to innocence inside of you in order to use the power to fight akuma. Also, the innocence would have to choose you in order to use it, you can’t just find it and expect that superpowers or anything.

This show is a race to see which side will succeed in getting all of the missing pieces of the innocence and the heart. This crazy, dark, funny and full of action, so if your into those things then you better stop reading this and start watching this right now or read the manga. A third season to the show has come out recently called “D.Grayman: Hollow” and I can’t wait to see it and tell you guys all about it. Until then, watch this if your into it and I’ll see you all next time.

Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie

Pinterest.comHi everyone!

Did you think that I was going to disappear again for a bit? Well, if you did….your wrong. I’m still here and I plan to keep talking about the things I love with all of you for a long time.

Moving on, the next anime for today is a sweet show called, ” Bonjour Sweet Love Patisserie” made by Silver Link and Connect. Now, the first thing I thought when I looked at the title was too things and that is its going to in France and there are going to be a lot of sweets involved. Turns out, I was half right!

Sweets of all kinds are being shown throughout each episode (much to my satisfaction) and this show takes place in Japan not France. But, there is a cute and energetic dessert making teacher from France that shows up in the show often. He turns out to be my favorite character in the show because he’s so simple minded, hyper and cute as hell! So, if you think about I was right about the French thing and sweets.

In the show, it revolves around a sweet and shy girl names Sayuri Haruno who won a scholarship to an elite confectionery school where most of the students are from high society. Knowing that little bit kind of reminded me of Haruhi in Ouran Host Club where she was also a scholarship student in an elite school. So, when I thought  along those lines I kind of assumed the comedy was going to be similar. The show was funny, but in a different sense than what you would see in Ouran Host Club. Anyway, she’s a scholarship student trying to become best pastry chef around like her father before.

I think Sayuri’s parents might be dead. The reason being that you never actually see them; you only see them in the family photo twice in the entire show with both of their faces glared out by the sun. Also, she never mentions them or talks about them and the subject never comes up in the show, so I don’t know for sure if their really dead or not. It might reveal that in the manga because the show ain’t giving nada and you know why?

IT’S BECAUSE EACH EPISODE IS EXACTLY 5 MINUTES LONG!!!

You heard me right, each episode is only five minutes and I can’t think of a reason why it would be. As you all can probably guess it didn’t take me long to go through all 24 episodes. For me, who expects an anime episode to at least last 20 to 30 minutes this was a bit of weird change to me. Everytime I thought something else would happen the credits would pop up, so I felt the episodes were incomplete.

Nevertheless, it was still I good short no matter how ridiculously short the episodes were. If you want to know more details than the anime gives you than feel more than free to read the manga or even play the mobile game from which the anime originated from. It’s a cute little story with several good looking guys making sweets that made my mouth water. If we had the technology, I would have stuck my hand in the tv and grabbed all the sweets they made.

If you’re looking for an adorable show to kill the time and are in love with sweets like I am (and the guys of course!) then I think you should try watching this show.

Thanks for Watching

 

 

Corpse Party: School Edition

Blu-ray.comThe Corpse Party anime series and previous games are becoming increasingly more popular as time goes by. It’s so popular that I can’t see this series dying any time soon. So, without further ado, I would like to talk about one the most recent game in the series, ” Corpse Party: School Edition”.

If I had to give this game a nickname it would the “Filler Edition”, the reason being that it’s the same exact game as the first Corpse Party, but only this time they explain the missing holes that the first one left this time. Things like what happened to Kishinuma after he got knocked out by zombie teacher. How did he not die? How did he escape? And so on and so forth.

These types of things got on my damn nerves because the first game wouldn’t even hint at what could have happened. It was they were saying,” Well, they made it out alive and that’s all that matters. Don’t sweat the details!” No! I will sweat the details because I don’t know about you guys, but not knowing certain details or all the details when it comes to the storyline is a bit of a pet peeve of mine. So, when they finally brought out a game that will reveal all those mysteries, I was super happy about it.

Pinterest.comThe gameplay and graphics are pretty much the same as the first (besides the fillers), so if you’ve already played the first one and don’t mind playing it again then you have the advantage because you know almost everything that happens in the game. If you’re not in this fortunate position and are about to play Corpse Party for the first time, then you’re in for a ride. But, if you’re not into horror/RPGs then this might not be for you. I enjoyed watching the mysteries unfold and I thought it was totally worth playing this game all over again. I hope you all feel the same after playing the school edition.

Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception

N4G.comJust finished this graphic novel game called, ” Utawarerumono” developed by Sting. It came out recently and has been the talk of the gaming town for everyone to play. When I first saw it I didn’t know what to think of it, so like always when I’m not sure about a game I go ahead and watch the trailer and see if its good or not. I was kind of put back because the trailer made it look so innocent looking for me, but when you look at the back of the cover it, obviously, says partial nudity, sexual themes, violence, etc, etc.

So, why is that?

Could they not find the right moments that would hint at that? Just to show you what I mean I’m going to show you this trailer for all you folks who haven’t seen or heard of the game yet. If you have then, you can go right ahead and skip over it.

Since, this is graphic novel game I already knew that their would be a lot of talking and cut scenes in the game which I was totally prepared for. What I wasn’t expecting was actually fighting in RPG fighting style battles. I was totally happy with that development, since most graphic novel games don’t let the players do this. At the same time, I was kind of disappointed because the battles are far apart from each other and it was more like I was playing chess than anything. If you’ve already played it then you know what I’m talking about. If I had to guess, I would say that I fought about 8 times in the entire game.

DualShockers.comMy favorite characters to use to fight with and in the story were Oshtor, Kuon(aka secret badass), Atuy( aka the mad princess) and the twins Saraana and Uruuru. Before, I get into them though let me bring you up to speed with the story. It starts with a man waking up on top of a snowy mountain who is later called, “Haku”. He’s wearing nothing but hospital robes, has no memory of who he is or why he’s there in the first place and you can tell right away that he doesn’t fit in whatever world he’s stumbled upon. Later, he gets rescued by Kuon from a giant red slime monster which I still think to this day was trying to tell him something. My theory is that it knew him and was trying to speak to him because it probably hadn’t seen him in forever. That scene was both in the anime and in the game and while the game story progressed I became more confident in my theory that the red slime was someone he used to know.

No, I’m not going to start talking about the anime, too. Sorry, but that rant is for another time and if I start comparing the two we’re going to be here all god damn day. So, moving on…….

Utawarerumono Mask of DeceptionAfter, being saved from death, Kuon vows to become his guardian and not leave him alone until she is sure that he can make it on his own. Thus begins their journey to the imperial capital, where they meet a lot of strange and strong people. Oh yeah, forgot to mention, but it seems Haku is the only live human around. Everyone else looks human, but they all have tails, cat-like ears and amazing strength. On this journey to find work, he discovers conspiracies, secrets, new friends and his forgotten memories.

The story behind this game will leave you at the edge of your chair and wondering WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON?! There are a lot of touching and sad moments in this game that will leave you teary eyed and moments that make you go NNNNOOOOOOO! If you love a good story then I would definitely play this game and if you end up being in love with it like I did and want to know if their is a sequel then you’re in luck because there is one. The sequel ,” Mask of Truth”, comes on September 5th.

I’m totally pumped up for that and I hope you all are, too!
