Game Review - Castlevania: Lords of Shadow

The long running and beloved Castlevania series, stretching all the way back to the original Nintendo, now gives us a new console release with Lords of Shadow. This game is handled by a new team from the ones who handled the last few games, giving us a new timeline, rebooting the story. Does this help or hurt the game? Read on to find out. As usual, I am reviewing the Playstation 3 version of the game. (Warning: Spoilers ahead!)

Mega Man back in Action!

First of a new thing I'm doing. One shot comics about various things. This is why Mega Man didn't have all his upgrades when he returns in Megaman 9.

Movie Review - Beowulf

Today I went back and pulled out a movie I've not seen in a while, Beowulf. This is a prime example of how to NOT make a movie. It follows a similar formula to that of the video game I have ranted on before in my Let's Play, Dante's Inferno. Both take classic works of literature and decide to dumb them down and use the name to try and sell what is really a lack luster title. Both also take cues from other more famous works to try and make it more marketable to the masses. While Dante's Inferno was a shallow clone of God of War, Beowulf takes alot of ideas and visual cues from Fank Miller's 300. So how does this one fair compared to other movies? Read on...

Let's Play Metroid Other M - Part 1

Note: This Let's Play was a major pain to get uploaded, even when I split it in half, the first part would not convert to the proper format after many tries, I had to convert it myself, I dunno what is wrong with Blip, but they need to fix that.

Game Review - Final Fantasy V

This review marks a special moment for me. Having beat Final Fantasy V, I have now completed every game of the main series of Final Fantasy (excluding XI due to MMOs having on going stories).  So, with this game, how does it measure up in the overall series? Is it good? Bad? Forgettable? Middle of the road? Read on to find out!

GI Joe (Animated) Movie Review

Today's review is about a guilty pleasure of mine. A movie that's so epic in it's badness that it's totally awesome. The original animated GI Joe movie, a movie that is the exact polar opposite to the Transformers animated movie. While the Transformers movie was loved by the fans and became a central part of the series' mythos, the GI Joe movie was shunned like the embarrassing friend you act like you don't know when you're in public with them. Never spoken of again after the movie, this is a oddity in a show that's about the elite special forces of America battling against a terrorist organization (back when terrorists were fun) that wants to rule the world. Read on for the review...and as usual, beware spoilers!

Got a few things stirring. Been kinda lazy lately. Playing Final Fantasy V, reading on the newest Falconfar book and bouncing around on a few movies. Hope to have some new stuff up soon.

Avatar Movie Review

So I finally gave in and picked up Avatar to give it a shot (and to also buy the rifftrax for the movie, they are so awesome). How does this movie measure up the the hype and awards? Is it an epic masterpiece of unrivaled proportions, or is it another dime a dozen sci-fi/fantasy flicks that're good for a popcorn view and nothing else? Read on to see, be warned though, spoilers ahead.

Game Review - Transformers: War for Cybertron

Transformers, a series that began back in the 80s, and is a childhood love of mine. It has existed in some form or another over the years, from comics, CGI TV shows, and even big budget live action movies. From the great writing of the Beast Wars cartoon, to the awful writing and directing of Revenge of the Fallen, Transformers has it's highs and lows, and is full of memorable moments, both good and bad. The series has had a hand full of games over the years, most of them are forgettable or just flat out bad (like the Beast Wars game I used to have, it was so bad I sold it to Gamestop). The one game I read was pretty good was the Transformers Armada game for the PS2, though sadly, I never got around to picking it up.

But today we are looking at the newest Transformers game. It is not based on a show or movie, and is set as a prequel somewhat tied to the original Generation 1 cartoon. Millions of years ago on Cybertron, we see the early stages of the Great War between the evil Decepticons and the noble Autobots. Is it good? Is it bad? Read on to find out.

Upcoming Review

I've been quiet for a long while now, sorry. Been reading alot, gaming, and making the comic (which is currently my biggest time sink overall). My next review will be of the new Transformers: War for Cybertron game that has come out. I also got a couple of small things in the works, so stay tuned for that.

Dear George RR Martin

Random Update

Been busy with some stuff. Reading now mainly between playing Megaman 10 and Final Fantasy V.

So I finished the Sherlock Holmes Mysteries, a collection of short stories...and I loved it. Made me love the new movie even more. Second book is the Phoenix Transformed, the last of the Enduring Flame trilogy, and I really enjoyed that book too.

I hope to have the next Dante's Inferno part up, and I am probably going to change up the style after that. I also have some reviews in the work too, mainly text reviews for the moment, plus some other tidbits.

Marvel vs Capcom 3 Impressions

So yeah, now we have Marvel vs Capcom 3 coming out, and I am actually pretty excited to see how they handle this game. After so many years since the second game, they have so much more they can add to this game. While most Capcom fighters seem to mimic the Street Fighter of the time, this movie makes me think that the game will mirror in alot of ways Street Fighter IV, which I don't consider a bad thing at all, as I looooove Street Fighter IV.

But until they begin to release more information we can only guess what the final product is really like. So until then, here's a list of characters I want to see in the game:

Mickey Mouse
Donald Duck
Doctor Doom
M Bison
Mega Man X

If I could get the bulk of those in the game, I would be so happy.

Game Review - Final Fantasy III

I recently completed Final Fantasy III on the Nintendo DS, and have pondered upon the product. As such, I present you this review based on my reaction on this game. Read on to know more...

Comic Book Movies a look back...

The comic book movie has come a long way from the old Adam West Batman movie (hilariously bad, but still not what Batman is, though some might argue that point), today we have Iron Man, The Dark Knight, X-Men and so on. Most comic movies now are treated with more respect than they used to be. However, the main problem to most of these beloved franchises is the movie studios. Often times they move in to ensure that they can get the biggest bang for their buck, and shove in things to ensure it draws a crowd, regardless of if it harms the story or not. So here is a sampling of the big comic book movies that have have rocky roads, ups and downs, and my personal thoughts on them....

Final Fantasy III - Fun Stuff

Since I beat Final Fantasy XIII, and am currently working on Darksiders with a friend, my main focus right now is the DS Remake of Final Fantasy III, which was once a Nintendo game, and I got to say, I am enjoying it. The story isn't as complex as some of the newer installments of the series, but it's fun. Like Darksiders, I'll get a review up when I get a chance after I beat it.

Sunday, April 4, 2010

After beating God of War III, and Dante's Inferno, one of my friends brought over Darksiders, and we've popped it in and have been playing it. The game isn't God of War III, but it is faaaaar superior to Dante's Inferno. Darksiders actually tries to be different from the usual God of War clone, and I actually like it alot. I'll have a review on it when I complete the game.

Today I review the latest in the long standing, long lasting Final Fantasy series. Final Fantasy XIII (FFXIII) is an interesting game that was released on both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3, as usual, I will be reviewing the PS3 version, so read on to see my detailed review of the game.

Quick review - God of War

Simply said, God of War III wraps up the story pretty nicely. The game is beautiful to look at, the gameplay is fast and furious. There is no tapping to open health and mana reserves (YAY!) and the story is really good and helps to put a nice finish to the whole greek mythology arc.

I'd actually recommend the game for those who are action/adventure fans, the game is worth it. Heck, the first stage of the game is worth it to see the Titans scaling and attacking Mount Olympus as the Greek gods fight back, it's a sight to see.

So yeah, that's my quick review on this one. :D

Random stuff.

Yeah, delayed on the new Dante's Inferno let's play, been working on Final Fantasy XIII (fun game), and been playing God of War III with a friend. Yeah, been distracted. Both games are awesome. I also have other stuff in the works, so I hope to have something up in the next day or so.

Random Update

Dante's Inferno's next part is on the way, but been semi distracted from it. Still playing Final Fantasy XIII, it's a great game, got nit picks, but I'll have a more detailed review coming on that soon.

Other than that, I've picked up the first two seasons of Burn Notice. Love that show. It's like a modern age McGuyver mixed with James Bond and a bit of grit on the side, making for an excellent show that has action, drama, and humor. Also, it has Bruce Campbell, and you can't go wrong with him in the mix.

I'll have more in the coming days, so stay tuned.

Let's Dive into Dante's Inferno - Part 1

An Update from Dr Demento

From the Offices of Dr. Demento
Greetings! I am Dr. Demento, physician to T and resident mad scientist. I am posting to inform you that T has caught the Ick, a rare form of the plague that causes him to suffer greatly. The only true means of overcoming this illness is to subject oneself to horrors beyond your imagination. As such, I prescribed that he play Dante's Inferno, and as a result, he is healed!
Now, I have chronicled the trials of this experiment and will publish them soon. If I can find the perfect game that is so destroys the human will and breaks the mind...I could utilize this as a means to turn the human race into zombies and rule the world! Yes, this plan is brilliant!

Soon the world will understand the power I possess as I unleash my creations upon you all! MUAH HA HA HA!

Yes, Demento is here to stay, and soon my name will join all the greats in the halls of Mad Science History! Listed with the greats like Forester, Insano, Evil, Farnsworth, Wily, many, you shall see!

*ahem* Anyway, yes, I am here to stay, I will be here to lend help on the mad science end of the spectrum on these reviews and such, so be seeing you soon...mmm....yeeees....

With mad Love,

The Force Unleashed - Review

The Force Unleashed marks a new project by Lucasarts to create a cross medium project similar to the old Shadows of the Empire project. While there have been several of these with various degrees of success, this one is the newest one, and one I would call the most 'mainstream' of all the projects. The following review will be based on the build of the game developed for the 360 and PS3.  How does it line up compared to past projects? Read on to find out...

Random Update

The Street Fighter the Movie review is still on the way, still working on it, as it's my first video review, it's a learning experience, so I hope it'll come out alright.

Star Trek The Motion Picture Review

Here it is, the Star Trek original movie series in review, in honor of the new Star Trek movie. Today's movie, starting from the very beginning:

I dunno what it is about the first movie of epic science fiction series, but this suffers the same problem as The Phantom Menace (and the same first letters of the title, just in a different order: TMP, TPM O_O!). This movie is very very very lacking when compared to the following movies. It has a very Lucas-ian habit of relying on the effects to carry the movie...and boy, do they love to rely on the effects in the movie. So here we go...

Star Trek TV Series Main Themes Review

Music is something that I consider important. When I play a game, I want a soundtrack that will pull me into the action. When I watch a movie, I expect a score that will accent the scenes, and not some crappy new age rock group playing forgettable songs that do nothing to enhance the scene. To that end, I decided to do a mini review on the Star Trek TV series' main themes, because these themes are part of the legacy of Star Trek, and the fond (or horrible) memories we may have of this epic space saga. So here I go:

Game Review - Knights of the Old Republic II

Today's review is of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II - The Sith Lords. Part of the Old Republic series that covers the first Knights of the Old Republic (from here on just called KotOR) and the upcoming The Old Republic MMORPG, this series really helped to pull people into the Star Wars environment and gave you a choice to walk the path of light, or the path of dark.

Game Review - New Super Mario Bros Wii

Today's review is New Super Mario Bros. Wii, or as the game calls it, "New Super Mario Brothers, Wii-HII!!!!!" And this game really is a mixed bag for me. Allow me to explain the backstory for this game. A friend of mine picked this game up, called me up and said he wanted to get me and my other friend together and play the multiplayer on the game, I was fired up, said yeah and we all got together and played this game, I didn't play all the game, but together, we all compelted this game in under a day (excluding the secret world). So how does it stack up? Read on to see...
