Review: Persona 4 – The Animation


Persona 4 Golden is out now in Europe for PlayStation Vita, and this is something I planned since it was announced, as Persona 4 is one of my favorite games of all time and the anime based on it is simply hilarious. This picture conveys it pretty well, even if it’s just based on a single episode (you know which one). Credits to Kate Beaton for the original version of the comic. Yeah, that’s it. Persona 4 is probably one of the best RPGs ever, so there’s not a lot to say about it that hasn’t already been said. Play it, and you will never want to return to real life again… well, until you’re done. Then it’s back to normality for you. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to pee. Cheers!

Review: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale

Wow, this might just be my shortest review ever. I don’t even know how I should start it, that’s how short it’s going to be. But you don’t mind, do you? No, of course not. Because you have less to read, and reading is oh-so-painful. Also, no distracting images or jokes this time, only hard-on facts. Heh, I said hard-on.

PlayStation All-Stars has been out since November, but I’ve only gotten my hands onto it since lately. And generally speaking, I’m glad I waited, because I got it for much less than the launch price was. Trust me, sixty bucks is way too much for this. I wouldn’t even consider PS All-Stars a full high-budget game, it’s ridiculous to ask so much money for a title that should be priced like an indie-game, content-wise.

Let’s see, we have twenty different characters. Alright, that’s cool. They don’t all play the same, that’s a plus, and you certainly have to get used to each character seperately. That’s great, that’s what makes good fighting games. However… why would I even want to play this?

This is the question I want to answer in this review. Why would I want to play PlaySation All-Stars Battle Royale?

Review: The Dark Knight Rises (Movie, 2012)

(insert stupid pun about bats here)

Hey y’all. Despite saying I don’t like movie reviews, this is already the second one I’m doing, in such a short time. I guess I just don’t have the time lately to play games I could review. So instead, I watch movies. Right now, I watched the new Nolan Bats in theater, because I wanted to see what all the fuss is about. To be honest, I wasn’t really… looking forward to this movie, because I had a cold feeling it would be bastardizing the source material a lot. I began reading the comics (Detective Comics as well as Batman, but only a few spin-offs) long time after seeing the Burton and *almost throws up* Schumacher movies and some time before Batman Begins hit the big screen, and I had a hard time catching up to all the stuff that happened before, so maybe I’m not the right person to judge the… integrity of this movie. But that doesn’t keep me from adding my two cents. Because I love the comics (post-80s) for my very own reasons. You know what? I should just shut up and review the movie already.

Review: John Carter (Movie, 2012)

SCIE- Wait, I already pulled that one. Heh, ‘pull’, get it? It’s a wordplay because both times were about gravity. And gravity… pulls. It pulls. Like I did just now. (I know, I’m always so witty.)

Hey y’all. Did you ever see a movie poster and thought something along the lines of, “I don’t even know what that is, why should I watch it”, did you? I certainly did with this movie, John Carter. I didn’t even catch sight of a trailer until much later. And of course I didn’t watch it in theaters back then. Biggest. Mistake. Ever. So now that I watched it on DVD (how nostalgic), I want to write a review about it. That, and because my co-writer DumbassBadassDemonlord down there did one. Personally I don’t like writing reviews about movies very much because movies… are something you either like or don’t. It’s hard to tell if a movie is good or bad. Sure, there are really crappy productions that can be at least judged in their quality, but when it comes to pacing, storytelling and characters, it really depends on the person that’s watching the movie.

Then, why am I really doing this if it serves no purpose, because you only know if you like a movie when you really watched it? For exactly that reason. I want to make you watch it. That’s my goal. Even if you’re just a bypasser, as long as I can bring you to watch this movie, I achieved my goal with this review, regardless of whether you liked the movie or not.  Oh, and I didn’t read the books by Edgar Rice Burroughs that this film is based on. I didn’t even know he created Tarzan until now. I’m just saying that I can’t say if it’s well adapted or not, so if you’re a fan, look somewhere else. Shoo!

Am I going to take this seriously? Oh, hell no. I want to have fun too.

Review: Gravity Rush

SCIENCE!

And flashy signature pictures for us so our blog posts look less empty and so it’s easier for you to identify us! Yay! False enthusiasm!

But yeah, that aside… SCIENCE! Isaac Newton, inventor of gravity, did a great job! Without his help we would still float around helplessly in a world without something that keeps us on the ground. Why couldn’t Adam and Eve do this much earlier? They had the apples and the opportunity. Ah, but I bet their overprotective father didn’t want them to do something useful instead of loitering around and not doing anything like the lazy snobs they were.

*cough* So, today’s game is all about gravity. Prototype 2 is an open-world action-adventure ga- … No, it’s InFamous 2, was it? Assassin’s… Creed? … Oh, that’s right, Gravity Rush. Says it right in the title, silly me. Gravity Rush (or Gravity Daze in Japan – though the katakana could also mean Gravity Days which would make a lot of sense actually… maybe the wordplay is intended?) is an open-world action-adventure game for the PS Vita that uses most of the device’s mechanics and was released a few weeks ago.

Review: Disgaea 3 – Absence of Detention

We all know high school kinda sucked. But if that’s the case, then why do we love games with a school setting so much, like Persona, Valkyria Chronicles 2, Mana Khemia: Alchemists of Al-Revis, Persona 3 or Persona 4? Because they show us a school life we wish we had? Or is it because we do have some good memories of our school life after all? I would really like you to ask yourself that question, whether you enjoy games like that or not. I want to understand this matter more.

Hey y’all! It’s Grynax again, who was finally able to put his PS Vita aside and write another review. This time I’m going to talk about Disgaea 3 – Absence of Detention for the PS Vita, which is actually an enhanced remake of the game Disgaea 3 – Absence of Justice for the PS3, with added storylines and all the DLC from the original (originally worth $40, now on the remake for free). Playing Disgaea 3 at this time of the year triggered some kind of nostalgia inside my head, because I started playing the Disgaea series almost exactly one year ago! So this is actually my own personally anniversary for this game! So… prepare for a long and tedious review. (By the way, you don’t need to have played the other Disgaea games to understand Disgaea 3’s story. In fact, if this is your first time showing interest in a Disgaea title, Absence of Justice/Detention is the way to go. As of now, it’s my favorite title in the series.)

Review: Dynasty Warriors Next

(A notice of warning: most of the links in this blog lead you to YouTube videos that don’t have anything to do with the review. Only access them if you are bored and in a safe place. You have been warned.)

I usually don’t play a lot of Dynasty Warriors games, but when I do I try to get at least a 100% in the bitch.
