About this blog

I'll mostly just be talking about anything that interests me. And when I say that, I mean what's going on in the gaming, comic, and TV/Movie community. Mostly video games, though :3

Torn Between Systems

We all know what's coming out before the holiday season; The Xbox One and the Playstation 4. I've already concluded that I'm not getting the Xbone, but I'm torn between the Wii U and the Playstation 4. There are so many games I want for the Wii U, such as Sonic Lost World, Super Mario 3D World, and Pikmin 3. Though, I know that there are plenty of games that're going to come, such as inFAMOUS Second Son, The Order: 1884, and others. Jeez, so much to choose from...

What I noticed about the early 3D Sonic Games...

You know what I've noticed about the first five 3D Sonic games on consoles? It's that they seemed to have decreased in quality until Sonic Unleashed rolled around. Allow me to explain the quality change of Sonic Adventure - Sonic 06. I don't count Sonic Riders in the list. When Sonic Adventure burst onto the scene on the SEGA Dreamcast, most owners of the system set their sights on getting the game. When they got it, most people rather enjoyed the game, mostly for Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles' ga

Why Batman Arkham Origins wiil be the Best Batman Game Ever

If there're two games I want for Christmas more than any other games on the market, they'd be Sonic Lost World and Batman Arkham Origins. I think it's a safe bet that you guys already know about Arkham Origins. But, in case you haven't, Origins is meant to be a prequel to the games. It takes place in Bruce Wayne's early years as the caped crusader. The main villain in this story is Black Mask. Not a lot of people know about this guy, and that's understandable. He didn't really appear much in the

Diablo 3: Similar to Another Game I've Played

Last night, I finally looked at Diablo 3. I got the console version, so I played it with my brother. I'm sure that the PC version of the game is better, but whatever. We spent many hours last night fighting undead and protecting the village of New Tristram. However, this game felt similar to another game. It felt painfully similar to World of Warcraft. Now, not to say that World of Warcraft is bad. I actually played that game for a good while. Both games are made by Blizzard Entertainment. I lik

MLP Gamer Pictures on Xbox Live

There are literally MLP FIM gamer tags on Xbox Live available for purchase. When I firs t found this out, I was a bit surprised. Someone over at the Microsoft Corporation is a brony? I didn't see that coming. I might get a pack of these, but I'm likely just going to stick with Sonic or Batman. (Thanks, Ditzy, f

The Wii U Deserves Better Respect

I already know what next-gen system I'm getting; the Wii U. Games like New Super Mario Bros. U, Scribblenauts Unlimited, and Sonic Lost World have all contributed into making that decision. But, the Wii U right now is getting really underscored by the gaming industry as a whole. At my local Walmart, the Wii U has it's own shelf. Inside the shelf, the light is turned off inside and the glass separating you from the games is totally stained. On top of that, normal Wii games take up half of the spa

Should more Sonic Characters be Playable?

I've been a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog for as long as I can remember. There's just something about the Blue Blur's attitude and speed that appeals to me to my very core. But, I do like the other characters, too. Characters like Knuckles the Echidna, Miles "Tails" Prower, Shadow the Hedgehog, and even Silver the Hedgehog are all great characters that brought smiles to my face in the past. Though, have you noticed how rarely they're playable nowadays? (Don't bring up the Olympic Games. I'm talking

Mobile Gamers

There are plenty of handheld systems like the 3DS and PS Vita, but there is another breed of handheld gaming; Apple products. I play games on Apple devices from time to time, but I mostly just stick to games like Mario, Sonic, GTA, and that sort of thing. But, I know people who call themselves gamer... but mobile games on Apple products are all they play. Personally, if all someone plays is games on Apple devices, I don't consider them a gamer. Though, I know a lot of people who think otherwise.

Deadrising 3: Nice Try, Xbox One, but I Still Don't Like you

One of the launch titles for the Xbox One is going to be the newest installment into the Deadrising series, Deadrising 3. Being a fan of the Deadrising series, I busted a nut when I saw that this game was announced. But, that burst of happiness immediately went away when I discovered it was only for the Xbox One. And, I have to ask; Why? If I were Capcom, I'd absolutely HATE to have my newest game be a launch title for the Xbox One. I'd want to put it on the PS4 or Wii U. I guess this is some so

Why Silver the Hedgehog Needs to be in More Games.

Let's talk about Silver the Hedgehog. Silver is a white psychokinetic hedgehog from the distant future. He can pick up things and fly in the air by simply just thinking about it. Just Silver's concept alone makes him sound like an awesome character. Granted, I don't like the game he originally came from, but that shouldn't mean he doesn't make an appearance in more Sonic games (And don't bring up multiplayer. That doesn't count.) He does have a few flaws, though. In 06, Silver's gameplay was su

The Sims 4: EA Strikes Again...

Let me just start off by saying that I enjoy playing the Sims every now and again. But, it's not like a game series I'd enjoy playing everyday. I'll take Sonic over Sims any day. But, I recently heard that the company that makes the Sims, Electronic Arts, is planning to release The Sims 4 in the near future. Now, in my opinion, I don't see the purpose. I mean, granted, The Sims is one of the top selling games of all time. That's probably because of the ten thousand expansion packs (I use the ter

Tails Doll in a Sonic Comic

And here I thought Archie didn't have the guts to put it in. Most of the Sonic fanbase knows about the Tails Doll, but for those that don't know, I'll quickly fill you in. Tails Doll was originally one of the unlockable characters in the Sonic racing game, Sonic R (The soundtrack for that game is AWESOME, by the way. Though, the game itself isn't all that spectacular) Anyways, the Tails Doll has become quite a phenomenon in the gaming community as a whole. He's pretty much been transformed into

IGN Sonic Lost World Review: Proving my Point

In the past review IGN has given Sonic games, I have a personal theory that someone over there has a huge vendetta against the Blue Blur. I think their review on Sonic Lost World proves my point at least a little bit. Think I'm wrong? Do tell me why. I'll read it. Review: http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/18/sonic-lost-world-review

5 Reasons Why: You Should Play Farcry 3

Welcome to the first 5 Reasons entry on the blog. This is where I take some sort of game, movie, or comic, and I list 5 reasons why you should or shouldn't play, watch, or read it. (These aren't top 5 lists, by the way. No reason is as important as the others.) These lists are going to be kind of long, so I hope you like reading So, let's begin.   1. Plot: I've played so many FPS's with a plot that is BARELY worth following, mainly from the COD franchise. But, Farcry 3 has a pretty decent pl

The Year of Luigi

I guess Nintendo made 2013 the official year of Luigi. In all honesty, I'm cool with that. I like Luigi better than Mario... slightly. I mean, Luigi tops Mario in every which way. He can jump higher, he's taller, and he's never been captured in his entire lifespan as a character (with the exception of Yoshi's Island) So, yeah. Super Luigi for life!

A Milestone for Rockstar Games

Grand Theft Auto 5 came out just three days ago. On the day before it was released, residents of my town formed a line that literally went from my local Walmart to the Arby's across the street. But, within a three day span, the game has single-handedly broken an all time record. From it's release date on Tuesday to today, Grand Theft Auto 5 has cashed in over 180 million dollars. That's more than all the Call of Duty games combined! (I was kind of in a hurry to put this one out. I just wanted t

The Amazing Spiderman 2: Back to Basics?

The Amazing Spiderman left a mixed impression on the Spiderman fanbase; Some people liked it and some people didn't. I, myself, thought the movie was pretty good. I still liked the original three movies better, though. The Amazing Spiderman just seemed too early for the franchise to get a reboot. Anyways, there has been a lot of controversy going into Spidey's next film, The Amazing Spiderman 2. Marvel seems to be going back to square one. They're getting the old suit back, Peter is going to st

Japan and Video Games

One question; what is up with Japan and the gaming market. I mean, seriously, almost every game or console we've ever played usually starts out in Japan and released first in Japan. Heck, there are even some games or systems that are only released IN JAPAN. I'm not complaining or anything. I like Japan. In fact, I wish to go there someday. It's just that I spend a lot of my time in the deepest trenches of my subconscious, asking myself questions that really don't have to be answered. Today, this

Why Comics Tell Better Stories than Video Games or TV Shows

Two of my most favorite video game franchises ever are Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man. I love the games, the TV shows (Well, some of them at least) and I collect the action figures. I love a lot of video game franchises, but I honestly think you can't go wrong with these two. However, there's also the comic books based off of these two franchises. Both are made by Archie Comics and both share pretty much the same art style. I may love the games, but honestly, I don't think they even compare to

After the Trailer: Kingdom Hearts 3

Me and my friends all love the Kingdom Hearts series. Because of this, we were super hyped when Sony announced that Kingdom Hearts 3 was going to be released on their new PS4. Yes, this game is only going to be single platform, which I'm bummed about. But, I guess it makes sense. Kingdom Hearts is usually released on the Playstations, so I guess they're trying to stay with the program (Yes, I know about the Nintendo exclusives.) Anyways, the game itself looks awesome.

Tonight, I'm going to be doing a Shadow the Hedgehog run-through, beginning to end. Every ending, every stage, every mission (possibly), just to be done with this forever. I'm making today's entry about this because I don't think I'll be able to get to make one tonight. I'll be so wrapped up in finally finishing this piece of shit, I won't be able to get to making a geekasm.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is released TODAY!

Today is the official release date of Rockstar game's much-anticipated Grand Theft Auto 5. This was a game I was excited about ever since it was first announced. The game was orginally suppost to be released in April of this year, but the game was delayed so that they could add more things and fix some issues. I was a bit pissed, but I assumed it was for the best. I'm just glad it's finally out, and, I have to ask; ARE YOU GUYS AS EXCITED AS I AM?!?!?!

Watch Dogs: Oh, the Irony

I'm sure some of you know about the upcoming Ubisoft game, Watch Dogs. The game let's you use hacking as a weapon to progress through the game. It's pretty much the main concept. Ironically, before this game's release date, something happened to the Ubisoft website. In June or July of this year, one of Ubisoft's websites were considered hacked. This led to all users of the site to be sent emails saying that their log-in info had to be changed. They also closed off any and all access to the site
