Let’s Play

senscritique.comHello again, everyone!

Today I’ll be talking about another comic from Webtoon called, ” Let’s Play,” by Mongie. The main character ends up being a cute but nerdy girl named, Sam who has always dreamed of being a game developer. She worked her ass off until she was finally able to make her first game and shared it on a game developer site so others could play it and give her some feedback on how she did.

Things were going well until a famous gamer youtuber named, Marshall Law, played her game one day and gave it an awful review. Since, then things started going downhill for the poor girl. Her confidence along with her game developer reputation and dreams were dashed by one single internet icon. If things couldn’t get any worse, her new neighbor ends up being Marshall himself.

Pinterest.comThis story is really entertaining and I love the little emotion moments where the creator makes a person’s emotion look like shadow people. Also, I love the characters in this story and my favorite characters would have to Sam and Link and not just because I want them to end up together really badly. Sam is such a sweet girl and the embodiment of a gamer girl who needs to break of her shell. Link is her exact opposite, he’s not into games as much as she is, but he cares a lot about her and his really protective moments towards her are the cutest.

Besides, her life starting to bloom; she hasn’t given up on her dreams, even though, she was kicked to the curb and thrown away by the internet. Also, I want to put out there that it turns out that Marshall isn’t an asshole or anything. He’s just a popular gamer that didn’t realize how much power he has over the fate of people like Sam.

s7.instago.pwThis comic is still ongoing and I patiently wait for updates, so I can see if Sam and Link finally end up together and everyone else gets over their issues and problems. If your into slice of life or romance type of reads then this would be something I recommend that you read to pass the time. But, if you rather wait for it to be complete then I understand and give you props for your patience for waiting that long for that glorious moment to arrive. Hope you enjoy the story!

Good News, Everyone!

Hello! I hope this hot summer day is treating you well.

Remember when I told you all a while ago that I was going to be moving my blog over to another platform. Well, it turns out that I won’t have to do that anymore because I found out recently that I could still do what I want to do with the WordPress one so it looks like I’ll be sticking around here for a little while longer.

I hope this news is good news for most of you. It’s good news to me because now I don’t have to do all that work in moving over to site. Also as a side note, you all know how I just talk about things that I’m into that fits into this blog, right? Well, if you have anything that you would like for me to talk about or see in this blog then don’t be afraid  to me in the comments section down below.

I don’t bite. I swear!

If I don’t hear anything I’m just going to assume that I’m doing an awesome job so far and I should just keep doing what I’m doing and that’s good, too. Other than that I hope you’re looking forward to my next post.

Aggretsuko: The Death Metal Panda

denofgeek.comWelcome, welcome, welcome!

Recently, I just got done watching an anime called, “Aggretsuko”, that I was really on the fence about. The main reason was because of the fact that the anime style wasn’t the usual kind that I would watch. At first glance, it looks more like a cartoon than an anime, but once I was done watching the first episode two things went through my mind.

One: This is definitely an anime show.

Two:  Totally in love with this show!

It’s about a red panda named, “Retsuko who works a regular nine to five office job for a company. But, what no ones knows about her is that she loves singing death metal karaoke whenever she’s stressed about something. After, I watched her scream-sing about how shitty her boss was in the company building bathroom, I knew I had to see more and before I knew it I went through the entire first season.

imgrumweb.com
Fenneko

Now when she’s not working at the company in the day, she’s at her favorite karaoke bar at night; singing her stress away. She goes there so often that the employees know her by name. Retsuko suppresses a lot of her emotions during work because she’s afraid that if she was herself and said what was actually on her mind during work, she would be fired and not have any friends or any kind of social life.

I can say we can all relate to her in some kind of way. When you really want to say or do what you really feel, but your mental filter comes in, so you don’t. Anyway, I really like the characters in this show if I had to my favorites it would be the trio (Fenneko, Retsuko and Haida).

Fenneko is a fox that should quit her job and be a detective instead. Reason being she has a habit of going through extreme means to find any info or dirt on any person that catches her eye. Retsuko can’t even change her daily routine without Fenneko finding out about it. You can’t hide anything from this girl.

Aggretsuko Wiki-FandomHaida is a hyena and has been Retsuko’s friend and co-worker for the last five years. Has time passes you realize that he’s developed a crush on Retsuko and doesn’t know how to confess his feelings for her. As you watch him, you realize how good of a match they would make if they got together. She’s a death metal singer and he dresses like a rocker when he’s not at work and plays an electric guitar.

Plus if you listen to their voices when they say Retsuko’s name it kind of sounds like their saying red skull instead. It’s really funny considering her hobby. This show is really enjoyable and I have to thank the creators for making this and Netflix for airing it into the world and into our hearts. The 2nd season doesn’t come out until 2019 and until then I’ll patiently be waiting.

Thanks for Reading!

My First Book

Book CoverAt last, I am finally able to do one of the major things that I wanted to do in life and that is writing and making a book. It took a lot of work to make this book and I’m totally excited to see my baby out of my computer and into my readers’ hands. You don’t know how happy it makes me feel when someone reads it and they tell me later on how good it was.

I would like to thank my friends and family who supported my me all throughout the making of this book and I hope they continue to support me. The book is called,” A Love Strong Enough to Kill” and is currently on Amazon if your interested in it then click on the link the below to give it a look-see. Also, it will be available on Kindle in a couple of days, so if you’re not into having the physical then just wait for the ebook to come out.

You can actually read an unedited sample of it, as well on Wattpad, if you decide if your into it. Again I thank you all for your support, every single one of you motivate me to keep going and not give up on what I want to do.

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.

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!

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!

Experiencing OMG!Con

Tumblr.comThis time I’m going to talk about something different that I’ve never talked about before and that is conventions!

I’ve always wanted to talk about them at some point, but I haven’t gotten the chance to go to any of the ones lately because like most people I work and deal with other life problems that come our way. That’s okay though. I finally was able to go to another anime convention after so long.

Art StallOMG!Con was my second time going to an anime convention and I freaking love going to these events. This one was located in Owensboro, Kentucky on June 9-11. It was freaking awesome as hell! To be surrounded by like-minded people like myself, who are really into anime and like to cosplay and all that good stuff really puts a smile to my face. Before, you guys ask….no I did not cosplay for this event, but someday I will just not this time. Yes, I will take better pictures next time. I was distracted by everything going around me, so I wasn’t too concentrated on the picture-taking while I was there. Until, I master this art….. JUST DEAL WITH IT.

As you can see though, the thing I like most about conventions besides the people, costumes and the vibe is the vendors section. You never know what you’re going to see in that place. You can always find cool stuff there and for a decent price, but this where they always get you. If you don’t got the cash then I would steer clear of the vendor’s section at all costs or they will bleed you dry. This is what I do I scan all the stalls making a mental list of all the things that I want and if I happen to find two of the same item at two different stalls then I find out which one is cheaper before buying instead of being a compulsive shopper.

Anime StallTo me, that’s just common shopper sense, but the main thing is though that I’m always coming out of there with SOMETHING. Never Nothing. I always have to have at least buy something to remember the occasion.

I enjoyed everything that they had to offer to the food to the arcade that they had in there, too. My only regret was going to on the third day which I discovered is what I like to call the ‘winding down’ day. I was so mad at myself, but now I know that when it comes to cons you need to go on the 1st and 2nd day. If you didn’t already know this most conventions last for a full three days and almost always on the weekends because they know that if theirs any days of the week that everyone is off its on the weekend.

I had a great time during this event and if I have the time next year I’ll definitely drop by and see what’s going on. Also, if their are any events that you all recommend that I should go to and see then just let me know in the comments below. Thank you!

Thanks for Reading!

 

 

(C) Control

sevac.studiojab.comThis anime is called, “C-Control” and it gets pretty crazy pretty quick like most anime shows. It revolves around a college student named Kimimaro Yoga who is like everyone else in the world just trying to get by in life when it comes to the bills. Even though, he works two jobs he still flat broke almost all the time until a strange man by the name of Masakaki appeared at his front door one day.

Basically, he offered the chance for him to make big money in no time flat which we all know is sketchy at best. But, Masakaki didn’t really give him much of a choice when he put a whole bunch of money in his bank account and Kimimaro had no choice but to use it. The moment he did, it was game over.

avvesione.wordpress.comNow, that he’s used the money, he has no choice now, but to join the Financial District and play the game. The Financial District isn’t a place, but a whole different world that other people like him go to in order to play, gamble and earn more money. Their are only three ways to earn money in the district. You can gamble it, you can get a loan from the bank (which no one does because you have to pay it all back in one go at some point) or win a deal. Deals are mandatory battles between people who fight with their assets.

Everyone gets an asset and each one takes a different form. For Kimimaro, his asset took the shape of a young long-horned girl named Mashu. Anyway, when you fight you fight with power and money. You buy abilities with your current budget and every time you take a hit, you lose money, too. The fight is on a timer so if you end up losing a lot more than your opponent by the timer is up you claim bankruptcy. In that world, that is the last thing you want to happen because the Financial District takes your future as collateral. Meaning whatever good stuff you had going for you in reality the “bank” will alter reality to take it away.

kawaii-mobile.comFrom what I watched the scale kind of goes like this: if you don’t have much or you just started in the district and you lose the alteration in reality might not be that bad compared to a person who has a large fortune and claims bankruptcy. The only people who can see or tell a change has happened reality are the people that go to the Financial District, but normal people can’t tell that something has changed, even when a store that you might have just walked out of goes from being a doughnut shop to a sushi restaurant.

Crazy, right?

Warning: Spoiler Ahead!

Well, it gets worse. Later, in the show you come to realize that the financial district has had a hand in erasing tons of people even countries. The district can alter reality to make people think a certain person never existed, so it’s not too far-fetched that they can make countries disappear. Turns out that if a certain countries Financial District goes broke then an alter reality storm breaks free called,”C”, breaks free from that world into reality to take out that entire country.

To make matters even worse because C took out an entire country all the money and stocks end up effecting other countries that try to make their financial district’s go broke, so guess what happens next……..? That’s right folks C starts moving around trying to take out other countries!

This money hungry anime is totally epic and I totally recommend it for any anime lover out there to go watch it. It really makes you think about your money and your future to the point where you become self-conscious of it. Now there is one thing I have to ask though before I wrap this up for you guys. What do you think is better? Having all the money in the world, but no future or having a future and be flat broke?

Persona 5

WikipediaThe new game Persona 5 was developed by Atlus and is totally incredible. This game is about a group of outcasts that become famous Phantom Thieves that gain the power to steal and change the hearts of evil people. The game starts out really epic and weird only because the main character is trying to escape a casino while avoiding monsters and you have no freaking clue to what is going on.

Crazy, right?

I wasn’t too surprised since this is the fifth game in the Persona series so I was kind of used to the weirdness already. But, this is the first time that they’ve tried telling the whole story as a flashback. I felt bad for this guy in the beginning when you see how shitty his life becomes just because he wanted to do the right thing and now he’s being punished for it. What made it even worse was that for a hot minute nobody asked him for his side of the story!

Don’t worry guys things get better.

Youtube.comLater, I don’t know why but Igor (Prison Master/Velvet Room Master) chose him to have persona powers in order to “rehabilitate” him from ruin. How that works…..I don’t know but he just goes with it. Now, his new friends and himself are going into Metaverse which the other world is called and finding the most rotten of people in order to change their hearts and confess their crimes.

I think my guy is pretty calm and laid back for someone in his situation. He kind of just goes with the flow of things which is cool. Anyway, the game itself is pretty addicting and there is A LOT to do besides killing shadows and stealing hearts the whole time. While you’re not fighting in the Metaverse, you have to help him have and keep a decent social life in the real world; doing so will get you extra things in the other world.

After, a marathon of playing the game I realized two things that most of the shadows in the game looked really, really similar to the franchise game called, ‘Megami Tensei’, and that some parts of the soundtrack sounded really similar to another game called, “Catherine”. It wasn’t until later that my dumb self finally figured out that all three games were made by the same people.

PersonaCentral.comAnyway, this game has an awesome storyline, good comic-booky like graphics and is really easy to play. I think they’ve learned from Persona 4 when it came to difficulty settings because this time it goes from safe to expert. So, even if you’re a total beginner at gaming you’ll do just fine in this game. If you love a good storyline or RPG games, then you better get to this one fast!
