  Hello again Giga-Landers! I hope you all are doing well today and I apologize for the late posting this week.

Huh. A random train in a game about killing people? I WONDER what will happen next . . .?

  Having two jobs can be a pain in the butt sometimes. . . But, that doesn’t mean I haven’t had time to play any games recently. After being promptly defeated several times in Warriors Orochi 3, I decided to pick up Deception 4 (Japanese: Darkside Princess). It stars a quiet Princess who just happens to be the  daughter of a great demon lord. In an attempt to bring her father back from the depths of hell, her and her demon cohorts are hunting down the descendants of the people who sealed away their Master. It’s a semi-active action game where you use traps to dispose of your enemies in an extremely grotesque manner. Dropping boulders, swinging axe traps, bear traps, buzz saws . . . the works. I won’t admit that it’s strangely gratifying to destroy people like that . . . but it is!

  I wonder if  that says anything about me. . .

  Anyway, I’m actually going this from my new smart phone. Anyone that knows me, knows that I’ve had  the same old-ass slidey-keypad phone for the last  eight years or so. Sadly, Bill ( my phone) has passed away so I was forced to update with the rest of you losers! That being said, I’m really loving this new phone! And, no. I will not being installing Facebook as an act of defiance.

 

NOW ON TO ANIME!

  I finally finished my review on Cavalry and Asterisk. The two shows that were the same show! Seriously, I ended up just being extremely cynical during the second review because I was typing the same damn thing!

Even if the story didn't make sense, I did appreciate the visuals.

  One Punch Man continues to be amazing, and Gundam still keeps me in suspense every episode. So you should still watch those. I tried to watch an anime called Concrete Revolutio (yes, that’s how they spell it) and I was very confused. There were giant bug men that turn into Ultra Man, shape shifting first children, magical witch girls, and genocide. The above brings up a lot of plot points and throws them around like a Beach ball at a Nickel Back concert. It was extremely difficult to follow and did nothing to endear me to the characters. Jumping around on the timeline with fictitious dates didn’t make it any easier to follow either. . . So, it’s a skip for me.

  Anyway, that’s it for me today. I hope you all have a great Wednesday, and an even better week! -J.R
