Movie Review: A / O Journey to Bear Kingdom
Alpha & Omega: Journey to Bear Kingdom
Well...everything comes to an end I guess. As of now, officially, with little reason to believe otherwise, Lionsgate has officially ended the 'Alpha and Omega' series. (sigh) Well nothing lasts forever I guess and one can only hope for the best when it comes to the finale. Yeah...you can hope all you want...but it doesn't mean you're going to get it.
The 'Alpha and Omega' films have been a Direct-to-Video series since the original theatrical film in 2010. Through those years, Lionsgate made turned it into franchise with a video game, books, and even small bit of merchandise. And considering the series was supposed to end originally three films ago, it must have had some kind of success to keep putting money toward it.
I've explained in the last two 'A&O' film reviews that I personally am a fan of the series in that ironic way. Yeah, none of them are really good but they have an appeal and have their own flavor that makes me actually want to see ho

Alpha and Omega: The Big Fureeze
Merry Christmas my fellow readers, and if you're at all like me, you like to blow through a collection of animated Christmas specials both old and new. I love Christmas and one of my favorite things to do around this holiday is watch Christmas specials whether it be by myself or with my loving family. But every year there's a new, sometimes near forgot Christmas film to enter the direct-to-video market and we're here to exploit one of those titles.
Once again we're talking about the infamous Alpha and Omega movies. I already talked about one of the films already as well as my opinion on the series as well but I'll go over briefly. I actually have a respect for the series despite the low quality films they are, I'm a fan of the series in that ironic way. Even after the abysmal garbage that was 'Dino Digs' I still couldn't help but be enthused about the next film.
So much so that I knew the back story for the film before I even knew it's release date. You

Game Review: Sweet Home
Title- Sweet Home
Platform- Nintendo Famicom (Nintendo Entertainment System)
Release Date- December 15, 1989
Developer- Capcom
Publisher- Capcom
Introduction:
Ha ha, okay, come on. Can't tell me that the few readers I have didn't see this one coming. The infamous 'Sweet Home'; the game that inspired the first 'Resident Evil'. Yep, I'm not kidding. This is the game that helped conceived one of Capcom's most profitable and popular franchises! What a perfect candidate for a Halloween themed review.
I've already went into detail about my history with the 'Resident Evil' series so we'll look over that. Instead look into the game itself. The game was only released exclusively in Japan on the Nintendo Famicom (Japan's NES) as part of a movie of the same name. While 'Resident Evil' didn't create the survival horror genre [of that era] like many people think (play 'Alone in the Dark') there's no denying it made it popular, and it wouldn't have come to b

15 Years Later...
By: RobotFox
So this is it, another look back at September 11th, the date in which displays perhaps one of the most devastating moments in my personal life time that happened in my country. It's always hard to believe to think countries all around the world have to put up with so much more so frequently.
And here I am, just sitting in my humble household, facing a computer screen typing away while listening to music, Top 15s, or Chills. And now I'm stuck at an impasse in what I want to write when it comes to my tradition in writing a story marking the occasion. I usually am able to come up with something but this time I'm at quite a quandary.
Looking around my room; posters for cartoons, movies, and games, CD Soundtracks, VHSs, DVDs, Blu-rays, video games, action figures and what naught with of course the thing that's remained in my room for so long, my American Flag.
Since my earliest days in life looking back, I've always loved my country. I remember always drawing

Title- Yakuza: Dead Souls
Platform- Sony PlayStation 3
Release Date- June 9, 2011
Developer- SEGA
Publisher- SEGA
Introduction:
The Yakuza series is an ongoing series created by SEGA in the mid-2000s. The series centers around a once legendary Yakuza member named Kazuma Kiryu and the clan he was part of in the organization; the Tojo Clan. The series central protagonist is often trying to move away from this life after he left organization so he can properly raise and care for Haruka, the daughter of a woman he loved. Kiryu is considered a legend do to his martial arts being next to unmatched and has been known to take on armies and coming out on top using his own two fists.
Yeah, I'm a fan of the series. Just got into it last year and now I'm still going through all of them. I'm not really a fan of beat'em ups but Yakuza kept my attention with its appealing cast of characters and the story. But there was this one that was kind of a brow raiser.

Yakuza: Next Step
Yakuza: Next step

The warm night encased the recently purchased building for the soon to be 'Sunshine Orphanage' and begin the next step in his questionable and difficult life. Kazuma Kiryu, Dragon of Dojima, a living legend in Kamurocho Tokyo, was now making the difficult transition to being a straight man from his once Yakuza lifestyle. Stepping down as Fourth Chairman of the Tojo Clan to make an honest and safe living.
Kiryu was sitting at his desk in his private room he had. He was actually enjoying the solitude he had with Haruka in this building since he knew it wasn't to last; as soon as it was approved and recognized through the Government, they would be getting orphans that he'd have to take care.
But he enjoyed the young girl's company to the point where he saw Haruka as his daughter. And while she always referred to him as 'Uncle Kaz' he was more of a father figure for her but in a way he was more so her uncle despite the lack of blood relation.

Developer- Sennari Interactive
Publisher-  BAM! Entertainment
Introduction to the Series:
Time to finally tackle probably the most well known and arguably the most successful Powerpuff Girls games. Although I'm taking on all three simply because all three games are part of the same series. Basically, after the huge success that is Pokémon with the three games being the same with minor changes but also have the special interactivity between all the games; BAM! Entertainment attempt to use the same technology that Nintendo used and incorporate it into The Powerpuff Girls and all the games by default follow the pictured girl.

Movie Review: Bunnicula The Vampire Rabbit
Bunnicula: The Vampire Rabbit
Growing up, I was a child of the times; cartoons, video games and all that stuff. I wasn't too keen on reading books. In fact most of the books I read growing up was simply because it was required reading. (At my school, we had monthly book reports due) and the books we were given I usually didn't care about it. Only on a very rare occasion did I actually willingly read a book for fun and those very few books were usually licensed books based off of movies, cartoons, or video games (Examples: RoboCop, Justice League, Resident Evil).
But like everything there's always an exception and in this case it would be a book I did read strictly for entertainment purposes and one of those books would be Deborah and James Howe's 'Bunnicula'. Yeah, for once I actually read a book before I actually saw the movie, never thought that would happen. (On that note I never read any of the sequels)

Movie Review: Alpha and Omega: Dino Digs
Alpha and Omega: Dino Digs
Growing up, for some reason I've always been a masochist when it came to entertainment media; video games, comics, and movies. I actually went out of my way in getting bad movies and games. The main reason for this was really to educate me on what made a piece of media bad or good as well as better appreciate the good things...unfortunately that had a different result in the long run. Basically, the 'bad' things don't come off so bad (because I've seen much worse) and now my expectations on 'good' things had unintentionally become almost unrealistically high. I bring all this up to get to this ongoing series.
In the late 2000s and early 2010s there was a rush of CGI talking animal movies for some reason 'Over the Hedge', 'Nutt Job', and many others. And Lionsgate decided to throw their hat in the ring with their talking wolf movie. 'Alpha and Omega' is a 2010 CGI animated film that was fairly moderate commercial success and the final film for Denis Hopper. An

Game Review: Dino Stalker
Title- Dino Stalker
Platform- Sony PlayStation 2
Release Date- September 9, 2002
Developer- Capcom Production Studio 3
Publisher- Capcom
Introduction:
If any of the very few readers I have noticed, I actually do have a lot of fun with light gun games. Whether it be modern day or old school, I very much enjoy the railing shooting with a plastic gun. Despite being exposed and own real firearms much of my life it doesn't seem to ruin the fun of a light gun game. Anyway, where does this come in.
Dino Stalker is the only side game to Capcom's 'Dino Crisis' game series. It also is the second in Capcom's 'Gun Survivor' series. Personally, I see this as an actual 'sequel' (or rather more so of a sequel) to 'Dino Crisis 2' than 'Dino Crisis 3'...honestly, despite owning it I have yet to play it. (I have an XBOX but it's in storage because...I don't care much for the games on it) But I know it takes place way in the future and most of the characters from

Introduction:
Once again we're back looking back at The Powerpuff Girls, a show that I actually keep pretty close. I own most of the games, the entire series on DVD and movie, posters, comics and even figurines. Yeah I actually pretty much enjoy the series for all it's worth. (I'm not going to talk about the anime 'based' on it because I don't like it). So why are we going back to talking about the Powerpuff Girls?
Why, because of the reboot that's why! And...well...considering everything else that is on TV right now and especially after that horrific CGI special from awhile ago back, this definitely one of the better things on Cartoon Network right now. While it has all of the problems the other shows have nowadays, but at least it has some of what made PPGs great back then (though i

Now the samurai now being named Samurai Jack is trying to find a way back to the past and undo the future that has Aku ruling it.
The show featured a variety of characters and showed pretty interesting stories and character arcs. It was pretty good show and really fun action cartoon. Unfortunately, after four seasons it was cancelled and the story for some time wa

Game Review: The House of the Dead
Title- The House of the Dead
Platform- SEGA Saturn
Release Date- March 31, 1998
Developer- SEGA WOW (Wow Entertainment)
Publisher- SEGA
Introduction:
If there is one thing that in gaming that I will always be nostalgic about it's definitely arcades. My God, half the reason why I liked going to the roller rink back in the day was just to mess around on the cabinets. I pretty much enjoyed all types; the side-scrolling beat'em ups, the button mashing fighting, the fast paced car simulation, and of course the rapid firing light gun games.
Growing up I remember the popular light gun games in my group of friends and family were 'Area 51' and 'The House of the Dead' series. In all honestly, I didn't really favor one or the other. Heck, I even got excited when I saw 'Virtua Cop' available. But I did very often think about 'House of the Dead' a lot. But looking back on it now, I began to realize that the first game is hardly addressed nowadays. Heck, th

Enemy Friendship Final Chapter
Sari stirred weakly lying down. She was barely able see through her eyes as she opened them slightly but she could tell that she was in a bed due to how soft the material she was laying on. It was the warmest she'd been in quite some time, being in covers.
As her eyes adjusted as well as her other senses she was able to slowly piece together what was happening around her. One of her arms was exposed, showing her internal Cybertronian form but it was hooked up to machine, transfer glowing pink liquid to her arm. She was also able to now tell she'd been changed into her pajamas.
Memories slowly started come to her. The thoughts with Starscream, Primacron and Tornedron...

Enemy Friendship Ch. 31
The only source of light stayed steady like it was waiting or just existing. It acted as a like a heatless sun. Providing light but expelling no energy as a sun would do. The only known sense of life were now like energy leeches and the fate of living things is anyone's guess.
Starscream and Sari worked through the complete darkness, only the ambient light from the AllSpark Key and Starscream's optics. Using the limited light, Starscream was able to locate the solar panels from the station and with it make torso plating as well as gauntlets, all of them connected and the embedded key within the makeshift 'armor'.
Sari was inside his cockpit, being the only real way she could come along. Staying at the station was out of the question since she would've been drained without the key. "You think this is going to work?"
The ex-Decepticon stayed silent for a moment. How could he possibly be sure? But so many question he was asking himself now. Even if this did work, then what? Manually retur

Yes actually. I saw a few pictures and some inside info. Apparently there's only going to be two 10 episodes but I think that means it's going to be a conclusion.  So we'll see soon enough.

Two ten episodes? Also, I really hope they pull this conclusion off real good.
Also do you want to bet that some existing characters, such as the Scotsman, might show up in this last season?
Moreover, I would love to hear how your progress on your synthetic mortality or any other x9 fanfictions are doing. If not much progress has been done, than I understand and I'm cool with that.

Well, I have been diving back into the idea but I'm more than likely going to scrap the original idea and try to make a more solid idea. Like I said, my better works usually just come to me as I write which you've seen what happens there. The last quickie story I wrote (i.e. Yakuza Next Step) was just off the fly due to me getting a new job and changing a whole new chapter in my life and that story came to me. And I've been getting the urge to write again but I'm trying to get a new idea to flow again with X9. At the very least make a couple more oneshots. No defendant fate for Synthetic Mortality but I do know that I'm starting over.

Well, I deleted it. I'll be honest, pretty much feel like I jumped the gun on the idea. I had a fraction of a plot thought out and I figured that I would be able to work it out as I wrote on. But even before posting the chapter I personally felt it was lackluster myself. Your comment did not influence it's deletion, I personally felt that it wasn't good enough. I might try again but I want to actually think the story through better, otherwise, I'll probably keep it as a Oneshot series. I'll re-post in scraps however.
