PC Game Review: Eden* (2015)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Sunday, September 20, 2015 0 comments

Eden* (AKA Eden) is a dramatic visual novel set in a time where the Earth is nearly at an end, so most of the population have left the planet and gone into deep space.  Only a few people are still left on Earth and this is where we see the main character of this story, a young adult named Ryou Haruna.  Ryou is a very hardened soldier after having been to many wars and he is also an elite sniper with some serious skills.  Ryou's latest mission has him stationed to a small island that has a very important science institute on it to where he'll be a bodyguard of an important person named Sion.  Sion isn't your typical person as she is a type of human called a Felix (not the cat) that is also the next step up on the evolutionary ladder, so she possesses a lot of brains and has eternal youth when it comes to her looks.  This island institute also has a lot of mysterious things going on and they will all unfold during Ryou's stay there.  There's also a lot more going into this visual novel other than just a mystery and I'll get to that deeper into this review.  It's the end of the world as we know it, but will this visual novel be fine?  (Click "Read More" to read the full review).

Posted by Retrokaiser On Saturday, September 19, 2015 0 comments

Sakura Spirit, a visual novel that has you playing the role of a teenager named Takahiro. Takahiro, a Judo Fighter, has fought his way to the finals of a judo tournament but has found himself very nervous about fighting in them. Takahiro is a fighter because he has a dream of becoming a hero just like those from the fairy tales and comic books. Takahiro starts asking around for advice for a cure for his nerves and finds out from a friend that there is a special shrine that's said to give anyone good luck if they made a wish there. Takahiro makes his way to the shrine and makes his wish. Takahiro notices something strange after making his wish as he hears a female voice and then soon sees a weird scantily clad woman with horns and a tail. The woman tells him something regarding his wish and then uses her magical powers to warp Takahiro to another dimension. This dimension looks like feudal Japan and Takahiro is confused, he doesn't know what is going on as he didn't think that the woman was serious. Takahiro wanders around for a little bit and soon runs into a pair of very sexy Fox Girls. Takahiro notices that the Fox Girls were stealing the underpants of a Guard from a local village. Long story short, Takahiro gets himself involved with them and winds up living with the Fox Girls until he figures out how to get home. Foxy. (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

DVD Review: Goosebumps: The Complete Collection. Seasons 1 - 4 (1995 - 1998)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Friday, September 11, 2015 1 comments

Goosebumps Complete Collection is a box-set that contains all four seasons of the old 1990's television show, Goosebumps. Goosebumps is a family horror show that tells tales in an episodic format much like the shows The Twilight Zone (1959 - 1964) and Tales From the Crypt (1989 - 1996). The episodes themselves are all based on the Goosebumps books and some episodes are even hosted by the author of the books, R.L. Stine. Some of the tales of terror you can expect in this show includes: A girls unfortunate experience with a haunted Halloween mask.  An evil dummy trying to get people in trouble.  A story of an evil comic book villain coming to life.  A young boy's adventure in the jungle with a shrunken head.  Several episodes about werewolves.  A bunch of ghost tales.  Plus way too many more to even mention as it's the complete collection, man. Readers beware, you are in for a scare... I mean that you're in for a review (well, you might be in for a scare if you're not prepared to hear what my views are).

DVD Review: My Litle Pony: Friendship is Magic Season 3 (2012 - 2013)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Thursday, September 10, 2015 0 comments

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season Three is the next huge season about our favorite little mares and their adventures in friendship. The main premise of the show is that a unicorn named Twilight Sparkle is on a mission to learn what it means to be a true friend and report back to Princess Celestria. Twilight Sparkle has certainly made a lot of friends since she made her first step in Ponyville all the way back in the first season, now she has a much tougher task from Princess Celestria herself. Twilight Sparkles current (and toughest) task is to help save a place called the Crystal Empire, a place that was dormant for a really long time but now isn't. Twilight Sparkle must help the Crystal Empire by reviving the Crystal Heart but it isn't easy as the Crystal Heart is hidden and was so by the previous ruler, King Sombra (an evil vampire pony that I like to call a vampony). Twilight Sparkle doesn't have long though as the evil King Sombra has also returned to take back the Crystal Empire and he won't stop until he has it back in his grips. All this and more in this third season of My Little Pony. (Click on "Read More" to read the full review).

Posted by Retrokaiser On Wednesday, September 9, 2015 0 comments

The Thief of Bagdad is an fantasy adventure film based on the classic Arabian Nights stories. This film opens up with a blind man on the street asking for money and is then soon met up with a woman that asks of him to help revive a princess from a deep sleep. The blind man is soon at the castle and is soon surrounded by a harem of beautiful women that refuse to let him go. The blind man uses the time to tell the harem the events that lead up to him being blind. The story of the blind man starts off with how he is actually a prince that was not happy with his life as all royalty saw themselves above everyone else, he didn't find that to be fair. The prince soon gets caught up in conspiracy as his assistant, Jaffar, soon sends him to jail just so that Jaffar can take over the throne. The prince soon befriends a thief he meets in prison, named Abu (played by Sabu*).

The two of them soon manage to escape from prison and head out to another town where they can escape to sea from there. Sadly, plans are soon to change as the prince falls in love with a beautiful princess. The prince manages to sneak into the princess' garden in order to see her to which he gets spotted and it is love at first sight. Sadly, there is another man after the princess and it is none other than Jaffar. The princess refuses to go with Jaffar and thus this makes Jaffar very upset. The prince manages to get captured while trying to see the princess again and that just makes Jaffar mad. Jaffar punishes the prince by putting a curse on him and Abu to where the prince goes blind and Abu gets turned into a dog, then the film cuts back to the blind prince and the harem of beautiful women. The blind prince manages to wake up the princess but only for Jaffar to take her away from him. Now the prince and Abu must go on an adventure to save the princess and put a stop to the evil Jaffar.

DVD Review: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season Two (2011 - 2012)

Posted by Retrokaiser On Tuesday, September 8, 2015 3 comments

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Season Two is the next installment of the animated show about a group of little ponies and their huge adventures (check out my review of the first season if you haven't yet). This season opens up with a bit of chaos as a mischievous villain from the past makes his return to Ponyville (and debut to the series), this villain is named Discord, a creature that is made up of parts from multiple creatures. Our heroes must put a stop to him but Discord isn't going to go down easy as he has stolen and hidden all of our heroes Elements of Harmony (powerful magical items), then puts our heroes on a quest to find them. Why did Discord put our heroes on such a crazy task? He was just simply looking to be entertained is all. That's not all you'll see in this season as you'll also see: Twilight Sparkle trying to prevent a dark future from happening after she was visited from herself from the future.  Applejack trying to keep her farm in business after new competition comes to town.  The Cutie Mark Crusaders still trying to get their cutie marks and also trying to get their teacher a nice boyfriend.  Spike the Dragon trying to live life with other dragons.  And much, much more.
