Episode 12

Act 12: ENEMY – Queen Metallia

            Hello, everyone! It’s the Holiday Season and most everyone is in good spirits, including myself. I’m pumped to watch and review episode 12 since 11 ended on a cliffhanger, and also since this episode is the last one of the year. Woohoo!

            As you probably remember, episode 11 ended in a bit of a heart-wrenching way. Possessed Endymion/Mamoru (whom I dubbed Mamendo) attacked the Guardians and Luna, and Sailor Moon tried to heal him from this with Moon Healing Escalation, only to fail due to Queen Beryl blocking the shot. How does episode 12 follow this?

[Note: If the screenshots look a little different, it’s because they’re in .jpg format instead of .png! I’m trying to conserve space a little; let me know what you think!]

Episode 11

Act 11: Reunion – ENDYMION

            Since I was a week late reviewing episode 10, the three-week wait until episode 11 was only a two-week one, and so it didn’t feel nearly as slow as it would have if I had reviewed episode 10 on time. I suppose that’s a positive way of thinking; it almost makes my procrastination acceptable, haha.

            Anyway, episode 11 is here, and so let’s begin!

Episode 10

Act 10: MOON

I’m late! Sorry about that; unfortunately, I had planned on reviewing this last Saturday, as I usually do, but a lot of things came up. I should be far timelier next episode. Thanks for bearing with me!

So, as we left off in the previous episode, the Guardians are about to travel to the moon to find and save Mamoru, as well as find out more information about the bad guys and themselves. Rei asks the ever important question, “how are we getting to the moon?” which I’m sure was in the back of your mind last episode; I know it was in mine. Minako responds simply by telling her she’ll find out soon enough, which just makes the question even more prominent. Makoto is excited about going to the moon, though, and doesn’t worry about the technicalities of it all. Supposedly, this is a decent, albeit quick way of differentiating the personalities of Rei and Makoto, which I found interesting.

Episode 9

Act 9: Serenity – Princess

Hope all of you who celebrate Halloween had a great one yesterday! I did, although I will admit that come late evening time I thought a bit about episode 9 of Crystal, since episode 8 had quite the cliffhanger ending, and I personally wanted to know what turn of events this anime would take. Let’s just get this reviewing show on the road, then, as I know you’re anxious to read about what happens to Tux, too.

Marvel Heroes 2015 Review. Keep on reviewin’

Marvel Heroes 2015 Review

At least so far…

Loot explosion in Marvel Heroes 2015.
Loot explosion in Marvel Heroes 2015.

Marvel Heroes is an interesting game. It plays like Diablo, as in it’s an action RPG with loot drops and classes (heroes) to play as. That said, it has had an interesting history, at least as far as video games go. It was originally developed by Cryptic Studios under the name Marvel Universe, but it ended up getting cancelled.  Gazillion Studios took over the rights and rebranded it as the name we know today, minus the 2015. That came in May of this year, though I expect it to change to 2016 next summer. We’ll see about that, though. Anyway!

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Write-up and Review

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel

Review

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Skill trees for Nisha.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Skill trees for Nisha.

I’ve been a fan of the Borderlands series since late 2012, when I started to play Borderlands 2 with my boyfriend. Going into the game, I didn’t really know what to expect, save for the basic premise of shooting and looting. I had never played the original game, so I was going in fairly blind.

I ended up picking Maya the Siren as my character, though I was tempted to play as Gaige the Mechromancer. (I ended up playing Gaige later.) The game was a lot of fun, and we played through the normal, True Vault Hunter, and Ultimate Vault Hunter difficulties. Needless to say, I was very excited to hear that another Borderlands game was being made, and I made sure to keep up on the latest information on the third game in the series as it was being released.
