Little Nightmares

cracked-games.orgThis time around I’m going to be talking about the popular and recently out game called, “Little Nightmares”. The game was developed by Tarsier Studios in which I appreciate your guys hard work in making this game for us. I was interested in this game the moment the demo came it, so I was really happy when I heard that this game finally came out.

So, the story of the game itself is really up to your imagination, but I’m going to tell you guys what I think was happening in the game. You wake up as this little girl wearing a yellow raincoat. Yes, I say she because it feels like it’s a she. So, I say it’s a SHE!!! Their has been a debate what gender the little person is and I vote she because she a she vibe from the get go.

dualshockers.comAnyway, this is a stealth/puzzle game where you have to sneak past these gross, deformed fat people who want to kidnap you for some odd reason. I’m good at stealth, puzzles not so much. It takes a person like me a minute to figure some stuff out, not going to lie to you. While your venturing on what you finally figure out is a ship, you come to realize that the reason all this fat people keep trying capture is so they can eat you because you’re a delicacy in this world. So freaking delicious that they’ve got (I thought this was a daycare for the employees kids or something, at first. Okay, leave me alone.) a whole smuggling ring operation going on where they take kids, feed them and fatten them up until their ready to put in the oven.

Messed up, isn’t it?

I know the theme of this game is dark and creepy, but they made something so damn dark that you couldn’t even see where some stuff was nor where you were going despite having a lighter. You never see the faces of the children nor the main character’s. Even though, the game was meant to be creepy it also had a lot of funny and charming elements to it, too. I always laughed when the chefs would see me and make that funny elephant sound.

At one point in the game, it kind of felt like you entered Spirited Away for a moment because everything takes a Japanese style turn and the head mistress of the ship is a geisha with a white mask. If you look closely at some of their faces, some of them look like Japanese demon masks. I thought it was cool but kind of out of place with the rest of the game art style and if you’ve played the game then you’ll understand what I mean. Also, I’m very curious at what type of creature she is because I thought she was just a regular child surrounded by giant adults that want to eat her, but then whenever she gets hungry bad things start to happen to the point where you question if she’s actually good or not.

gamerevolution.comI would say she’s kinds like a vampire but kind off not. I’m not really sure but at the end she becomes totally badass and gets her revenge on all those people who tried to eat her throughout the entire game which I thought was awesome. In my mind, she may be a being that can suck the life out of you and steal powers, but she still gave those people what they deserved so good for her!

I really loved this game, its creepy charm and how dark the story becomes as time goes along. The controls are really simple, so even a beginner can play this game as long as they don’t mind the horror element. Really excited to see if another similar game is coming out anytime soon and I hope you enjoy Little Nightmares.

Parasyte

Everyone has bad habits here and there and for me this particular bad habit of mine sometimes gets on my last nerve because I end up getting mad at myself in the end. I don’t know if other people have a problem with this but when I’m not sure of something like a game or anime, I seem to hold off on it because I instantly think that its not my cup of tea. Later though, when I finally go fuck it and try the game or episode I get angry in the end because I find out how good it is and why I didn’t try it sooner.

That’s how I felt after watching one episode of Parasyte. After, the first episode ended I was totally hooked on it and had to see more.  This was made by Hitoshi Iwaaki who created the manga and the actual anime series was created by Madhouse. This anime revolves around a teenage boy named Shinichi who is nerdy looking, nervous and friendly towards anyone that he meets. He also has a total crush on red-headed girl named Murano who for some strange reason keeps asking him from time to time,” Are you really Shinichi Izumi?”

It kind of pissed me off every time she asked throughout the entire show. I mean, why does she keep asking that? Would it make her feel different if he said no, but she already knows its him so why does she keep freaking asking him that same stupid question? I actually got really happy when he told her to shut up after she asked that same damn question for like the hundredth time to him while he was in bad ass mode. To tell you guys the truth, I really didn’t like her all that much. Everytime I saw her I always thought that something was a little off about her but I didn’t know what. Wasn’t sure if I wanted to him to end up with Kana either but I’m getting ahead of myself.

Basically, Shinichi was living an ordinary high school life up until one day he wakes up to something digging into his arm. He stopped it from going anywhere else in his body, but the next day he summed it all up as a bad dream until his arm started to transform and talk to him, at least. His arm later named Migi explains that he was going for his brain so he could take over his body and eat humans for nourishment. Later, they keep running into their more people infected and Shinichi has decided that he will get rid of as many parasite infected humans as he can.

Shinichi goes through a lot of shit in this show and sometimes you feel so bad for him. Its never revealed where the parasites come from. They never make it clear, but I’m betting that their aliens because in the first episode they were all falling from their small pods from the sky and none of them have any idea why their even there in the first place. I wish they would have hinted more but I guess we’ll never know. I really like when Shinichi was badass looking with his hair gelled back and everything, he looked really hardcore to me even his personality changed drastically. Again if you watch it or have read it, you’ll see that he goes through a lot of crap. To me it was like his own weird, parasite version of breaking down and rebelling. Again you know what I’m talking about if you’ve seen it.

There is a lot gore and action in this anime and I love it. My only wish was that he would have stayed in badass mode, but oh well. If you like mutants, action, gore and a bit of romance meshed into one then this one is definitely for you. There is so much to like about this anime its crazy, but I know it won’t get a second season.

No point, really.

The ending is so heart warming and funny at the same time that I thought I was going to cry for a minute. This is worth watching especially for people who are fans of sci-fi and horror anime. Hope you enjoy it!

Sausage Party

This movie came out just recently and this is the first ever R-rated animation movie. So, that means this is a movie just for adults because it was a different kind of animation movie I had to see what it was about. Basically, this story is about food and the food in the grocery store all think that once their bought and taken to a human’s home, they would be cared for and loved for all eternity. Of course, we all know that’s a load of bull and couldn’t wait to see their faces when they finally figure out the truth.

Anyway, the story is mainly centered around a hotdog named Frank and Brenda, the hotdog bun. Making a long story short they end up lost in the grocery store and are trying to find a way back to their aisle, so they both have a chance of bought together. On their journey though, they see and find strange things that they never seen before. The movie is very funny with a lot of dirty jokes and all. Also, because its animated you kind of don’t expect them to cuss…..at least, I wasn’t. I wasn’t sure about everyone else.

The ending was a bit much for me. I didn’t know what to really make of it. I’m not going to say anything about the ending because I don’t want to spoil it for a lot of you. For me, it was something that I wasn’t expecting for them to put in there, so I didn’t know how I felt about it. I knew the moment that I saw the trailer everyone was going to have a meme field day with this movie especially with the hot dog and the bun. So, if you’re looking to watch an animated movie with funny characters that like to cuss and make dirty jokes then I highly recommend this movie to you guys.

My Hometown Story

Hometown Story that is for the Nintendo 3DS is a very simple game. This game is in the same family as Harvest Moon. If you don’t know what that is it’s a farming/sim game.

In this game, you choose the gender and name of your character of your character and then your story begins. It begins with your grandmother’s death and now there is no one to operate her once popular story. Her furry flying, talking pet would have done it but she lacks opposable thumbs which an requirement to operating the shop.

Everything about the game is simple. The graphics, the controls for the game and the characters. Some of things that I’ve come to hate about this game is the camera. You know how usually when you play a game you can use your controls to move it any way that you want. Well, you can’t do that in this game. Also, no matter how much profit you end up making for the day, everybody in town will take it away so you’ve got something to sell tomorrow.

Also, their are items that you can buy but you can’t sell. If your wondering that I can just give it to someone your wrong. If a person doesn’t come right up to me and says that they want a particular item from me, it just stays in my storage. So, what is the point of buying these certain items? Well, the answer is quite simple ladies and gentlemen.

Absolutely nothing.

This game is so simple that it’ll wrack at your nerves. I think maybe this type of game would only be entertaining to people who are complete beginners in the gaming world.

Love So Life

The manga called,” Love So Life” is about a 16 year old girl named Shiharu whose dream was to someday own her own daycare center. Her only problem was that she was an orphan and saved up every penny she earned working part time at a local daycare. Basically, she worked and went to school all the time and didn’t really have a social life unless you count her playing with the kids.

Until one day, a guy named Seiji asks her to work for him to take care of his twins, Akane and Aoi because they seemed to like her a lot and only listen to her. He also offered double the pay which was an added bonus to her and she quickly took the job and I was glad she did. Turns out the twins don’t listen to him, at all. They stay up all night, they keep cluttering up the house with their toys, cry for no reason, get into fights with each other, etc.

Plus Seiji is a popular TV announcer who really cares about his image when it comes to work, but the moment he gets home his body shuts down and he can barely make it to bed before he collapses. Which is really funny to watch in this manga because sometimes he will actually try to stay awake and try to talk to Shiharu, but his sudden mood change just ends up scaring the girl to death.

If you’ve read a lot of manga like I have then what was going to happen in this story was pretty much obvious to me. She was going to fall in love with Seiji, gets too attached to the twins and probably become a happy unofficial family. And what love story wouldn’t be complete without a love rival, so I wasn’t surprised when they put the hot headed, Noa, into the story who secretly had a crush on Shiharu.

The only reason why I kept reading it was because it was so heart warming and that the twins are so adorable and love reading what they would do next.

Space Dandy Season 2

Source: http://www.sentionaut-plus.tumblr.com

Space Dandy season 2 is a the continuation of what Dandy and his crew was doing in the first season. Just to give you all a recap of what the show is about, it’s about a team of alien hunters that go all across the universe trying to catch rare aliens for money. Unfortunately, for them they never really catch anything. They’ve had some close calls before but still haven’t caught anything.

Their hunting skills have gotten so bad that Scarlet, who is an inspector who works for the registration center actually suggests to Dandy and his team that they should just think about a career change. Which hurt their pride immensely, but its like they do anything they anything. Meow, the cat alien just eats, sleep and play video games or go on social networks. The robot, QT, just follows the crew around and keeps telling the rest of them how useless they are and Space Dandy, the leader of the team, is the one who causes most of the trouble and sometimes gets them out of it, too.

Oh and I forgot to mention that Gogol Empire is still after Dandy because they believe that he holds the secret to them winning the war against the other empire. They are still trying to capture them with no luck on their part either. For some reason, they think that Dandy is some kind of genius that keeps trying to avoid them at every turn. But, Dandy isn’t even aware that their trying to capture him in the first place!

I wonder when their going to ever capture Dandy and see  what happens next.

My favorite episodes so far are There’s Music in the Darkness, Baby and I Can’t be the Only One, Baby. In the episode, There’s Music in the Darkness, Baby, Dandy disband his team and then gets a letter of invitation from a rare and creepy alien who he thinks when he gets a letter is a pretty girl alien. Turns out he invited him so he could freeze him and steal his smile.

In the other episode, I Can’t be the Only One, Baby was very funny in my opinion. Space Dandy and his crew end up going to parallel universes where they kept meeting different versions of themselves. Personally, my favorite parallel universe Dandys’ were the first one with the blue hair and one who kept doing Michael Jackson moves. Why he kept doing that was beyond me?

How this hilarious season is going to end is beyond me. Will the Gogol Empire finally  capture Dandy? Will they ever get good at alien hunting? Will Dandy ever get a girlfriend? Will Dandy ever be able to buy the franchise called BooBies? Who knows, but I’m excited to find out.

Tokyo Ghoul

Source: http://www.kyou-konnen.blogspot.com

I’ve been hearing a lot about this new anime show named Tokyo Ghoul. Before I even watched the show I decided to watch a quick trailer, so I could feel the show out a little. What I saw in the short clip shocked and amazed me and I knew I had to see more. Unfortunately, since this show is brand new it only has up to three episodes so far. But, their awesomeness makes up for their lack of episodes.

Tokyo Ghoul is centered in a modern world where creatures called “Ghouls” exist. When I say ghouls I do not mean the mindless zombies that are controlled by vampires like in Hellsing or in any other vampire story. These ghouls have intelligence, powers and social lives. The Ghouls in this anime eat human flesh to survive, they can’t eat normal human food because it tastes awful to them. One even said that its like eating horse crap. But, some of them have learned to ‘fake’ eating normal food in front of humans. I kind of felt bad they had to keep pretending to like it the food to survive, you’ll see the main character ,Kaneki, throw up a lot from just eating a single bite.

Warning: Spoilers Ahead!

Speaking of Kaneki, he is our main character in this show. Now from what I can tell ghouls aren’t created, they are born like everything else in the world. I say this because Kaneki is human, but after going on a date that turned into an attempted murder by the girl of his dreams, Rize, who is a feared ghoul among her kind and tried to eat him. Things don’t according to plan and Rize ends up dying. Now things get strange when Kaneki wakes up to find himself a ghoul himself or more like a half-ghoul. Apparently, Kaneki was so badly injured during the attack they transferred some of Rize’s body parts to him which caused some unusual effects.

Now, he must learn to hide the fact that he’s a ghoul from the humans and from his best friend, Hide, while quickly learning and fitting into ghoul society. This is a very good anime even with its lack of episodes. Also, like most anime shows it was a manga before becoming and anime. The manga is called, “Toukyou Kushu” and what I realized when I first started reading it was that the art in the manga and the art in the anime was completely different to such a degree that it shocked me. The effect I got from watching it was much more powerful than reading it for me. So, I think I’ll just for more episodes to come out and see what happens next.

Generator Rex

Watching “Generator Rex” brought a lot of old fond memories back. This show surrounds a teenage boy named Rex who has the power to grow and control machines to defeat EVOs. EVOs are humans that get turned into evil looking monsters because of an incident that happened 5 years ago. Five years ago, a group of scientists wanted to help humanity combat injuries and diseases by creating little machines called “Nanites”. Which I think was a good idea if the rich people funding the project didn’t mess up completely. They caused a huge explosion that not only taking out a lot of people, but the Nanites that they created spread across the globe and infected every living thing.

The Nanites end up mutating the eco system and the very people themselves turning them into monsters. What’s worse is that their seems to no cure for the never ending plague…….until now. Rex is the only person with the power to fight and cure EVOs. Their was a lot of mystery around Rex. He didn’t know his last name, where he came from, if he had any family or why he has these powers in the first place. But, don’t worry as you watch you’ll find they will give us hints and flashbacks to help us with finding the answers. The mystery thickens when Van Kleiss, Rex’s arch nemesis, appears. He appears to know more about Rex and who he is than anyone else it seems, but it doesn’t look like he’ll be revealing anything to us anytime soon.

If I had to choose my favorite episodes from this series, it would be “Night Falls” and the Ben/Generator Rex crossover. I liked the “Night Falls “episode they created werewolf type EVO that I liked plus another showdown between Rex and Hunter Cain. I also liked when they put Ben 10 into the mix for two episodes and mess with Rex a little. I don’t think Rex could process what Ben knew and what he could do all that well, but they proved to be a good team. I hope they get to work together again before the season ends.

Generator Rex is really funny to watch. I love watching Rex and his partner Bobo fight EVOs and pull pranks on everyone that they meet. The show will keep you entertained as we try to figure out Rex’s past and what it has to do with him now.

Attack on Titan:Part 2

Source:www.otakuhouse.com

You’ve already probably noticed that I’m just going to talk about part 2 of Attack on Titan, instead, of part 1. That’s because I’ve already talked about part 1 on my old blog which if any of you would to glance at it’s at http://www.L0VANIME.blogspot.com.

Anyway onto the story, if you’ve already watched Attack on Titan then you already know the gist of the story. The human race is at the brink of extinction because of the man-eating titans and to avoid absolute death they built a huge wall around their kingdom which held for 2000 years. It gets seriously more intense after everyone finds out about Eren’s ability to turn himself into a titan. Even after Eren saves them all and helps them reclaim some of their territory, the people in his town still hate him and call him a monster which I thought was pretty messed up. If he really was a monster then he wouldn’t have saved any of them. It got worse when the people decide that they need to hold a trial for him to see if he should live or die.

If he dies then they just lost their only hope of survival, but if they decide to let him stay alive then he would have to join the Scout Regiment. The Scout Regiment is where soldiers who choose to fight the titans outside of their walled city. Unfortunately, after the attack no one wanted to be in it for fear of getting eaten.

I’m not going to spoil want happened during the trial or what they plan to do to him for the people who haven’t watched it yet, but let me tell you that its intense and depressing. I felt bad for Eren.

Then, comes one of my favorite characters in this anime. Levi, a powerful and respected soldier of the Scout Regiment group. He’s this strict, clean freak who always has a sour look on his face. But, for some reason cares about Eren and doesn’t seem to be afraid of him. My second favorite character in the Scout Regiment would have to be Hange. She’s always really happy, especially, when titans are involved. She’s like the scientist of the group, but don’t be fooled she’s just as lethal as the rest of them.

I don’t know which moment I liked better in part 2 of Attack on Titan, it would either have to be when a female titan appeared. Yes, I said a female titan appears out of no where kicking everyone’s ass. Or at the season finale, when Eren and the female titan face off in titan forms. I’m not going to reveal the secret identity of the other titan, you’re going to have to see for yourself.

My only problem with this anime would have to be that their aren’t enough episodes. The season is over and there is no sign of anymore episode or part 3 coming out the woodwork. They left behind too many questions and not enough answers, so I’ll be anxiously waiting for more episodes. Until next time.

Fairy Tail

Source: http://www.mangauk.com

This popular show is centered around a group of wizards that take jobs posted at their guild. Their guild is called Fairy Tail and according to the story, theirs is really famous and for good reason.

The wizards that work at Fairy Tail are said to be so powerful and crazy that everyone says that they wouldn’t be surprised if they destroyed whole cities trying to complete their missions. Now, don’t get me wrong they aren’t evil they just over do it to the point of no return. This also puts them on the council’s radar constantly. For people, who don’t know about the magic council are a powerful group of wizards that act as the police, the jury and judge. They make sure that all the wizards around the world are following the rules.

Anyway, the main people in this anime are Lucy (the celestial wizard), Natsu (the fire wizard), Gray (the ice wizard), Erza (weapon wizard) and Happy (the talking, flying cat). I don’t know which one would be my top favorite its a tie between Natsu and Gray. I like Lucy too, but she isn’t all that powerful. Her magic is convenient sometimes, but most of the time its pretty much useless. I think that its funny that she seems to be the only normal person in Fairy Tail whose trying to get along with everyone. She gets so freaked out with just about everything that they do. Also, I was surprised that once upon a time she was thinking of joining Phantom Lord, the rival wizard guild against Fairy Tail.

When I saw how people in Phantom Lord worked I already knew she wasn’t a good fit. They were all doom and gloom and she’s all perky and sunshine.

There are so many unique characters at Fairy Tail. The show is hilarious, adventurous and full of action and magic. I can’t get enough of it! I can’t wait to see the second season to see what happens next. I have strong hopes that one day that Natsu will beat Erza and make it to the second floor of the guild. Also, hoping that Lucy and Natsu get together one day. Natsu may not realize it, but I think those two were meant to be together.

Fairy Tail is definitely a must watch. Trust me, you won’t regret it. Especially, if you like fighting, magic, adventure and plenty of mystery.
