The Book of Life Review

Can you smell it? That's the smell of Halloween in the air! It's that one time of the year where we can celebrate everything macabre and dark with no repercussions to it at all! We can eat candy, scare people, and celebrate the darkest day of the year with glee. However, not all holidays surrounding death are meant to be dark and grim. In actuality, some holidays about death have a positive and joyous vibe to them. Case in point, Dia de Los Muertoes, or the Mexican holiday Day of the Dead. If you're ever interested in learning about that holiday, then I say you should probably give The Book of Life  a watch.

Azure Striker Gunvolt Review

One of my favorite game series from recent memory would be the exquisite Mega Man Zero series. It was a short series for the Gameboy Advance that only consisted of four games, but each game was action platforming perfection. They were never too long, they had a great variety of bosses, challenging stages, and were some of the hardest portable games I've ever played. As the series went on, the quality man have dipped as did the story, but the franchise had a concise and great feel to it that made it a blast to play. SO why am I bringing up a franchise that ended nearly a decade ago? Because Azure Striker Gunvolt is the spiritual successor to Zero in nearly every way possible.

The Top 20 Video Game Villains: Introduction

Villains. These are the characters that we love to hate. The characters we want to see defeated. The characters that are our heroes' greatest challenge. Villains are usually some of the most dynamic characters in a story, and that is especially true in video games. In video games, villains are your motivation for doing your quest. They are an obstacle that needs to be overcome and they serve as your justification for playing the game. While games without villains certainly do exist, there's no beating fighting against a character that is everything you stand against. And for the rest of the month, I'll be talking about my 20 favorite video game villains, the cream of the proverbial crop.

Hyrule Warriors Review

I feel like I don't get to talk about The Legend of Zelda as often as I should on here. If we're being perfectly honest with ourselves, Zelda is one of the most important and innovative game series that ever existed in the history of this medium, but the past few years haven't exactly been kind to the series. Yes, I am a Nintendo fan, but I will fully admit when a series has reached a point of stagnation. Since the release of Twilight Princess, the franchise has done well, but it hasn't emotionally gripped me the same way that other games in the series have. Phantom Hourglass, Link Between Worlds, Ocarina of Time 3D, and even Twilight Princess itself have left me not as enthused as I thought I would be. Skyward Sword was a phenomenal game, but the franchise has been relatively quiet these past few years. And so we get Hyrule Warriors, an attempt to give a brief bit a of life into the series to tide us over until the release of the next inevitable Zelda game.
