otakunick game review (crysis 2)

 hey guys thought id do sum thing difrint  and give you a game review i know theses shoud probably dune ether almost right after the game game out or a retro review but what the hell i have been playing crysis 2 for abut a week now and i what to wright a review of it 

  now befor i get down to the story and game play let me give you guys a rundown on the history of the game because if you cudint tell by the 2 at the end of the name this is the second game in a serres now then crysis and crysis 2 where bolth made my a company called crytech best known for making games that look drop dead gorgeous and also for making a game that has killed more PC then mustered did the indians at little bighorn 

now for thows that dont now this this is the first crysis game on a console you will not find crysis on the 360 or the PS3 only for PC now with that sed the fact that crysis 2 is on the console has alot of PC gamers pissed off because befor this they would use crysis to as a trial by fire type ordeal for when ever they would make a new PC(tho thats rely pointless now as most consumer towers made nowadays can play crysis to a degree) and so the PC elitests are now all bitching and complaining on how they dumbed down the game inorder to appel to the console gamer and yes they did make the controls less complexed(and by that i meen there is not over 30 fucking hot keys to remember but lets face it the controls needed streamlining 

  with all that out of the way its time for me to tell you the baces of the story Crysis 2 takes place in 2023, three years after the events of the first game, in a destroyed New York City, which has since been evacuated due to alien infestation. The game begins with news footage of ecological disasters, a large outbreak of the "Manhattan" virus, a gruesome disease that causes complete cellular breakdown, civil unrest and panic about an alien invasion by the Ceph, the tentacled, squid-like alien race behind the incident of Crysis. Due to the breakdown in social order within New York City, Manhattan is placed under Martial Law, and under contract from the US Department of Defense, soldiers from Crynet Enforcement & Local Logistics (or simply "CELL"), a private military company run by the Crynet corporation, police the chaos. and this is whar you are going to be tossed into the story playing a charter called Alcatraz a marine part of a spec ops unit charged with helping Prophet a charter from the last game and shit hits the fan resolting in Alcatraz geting the nanosuit 2.0 

now the story is defanetly good but you probly alredy herd that and whant to know about the game play  well all i can say is this is the best FPS i have played in a long time if you come into this game thinking it will just be like COD or halo youl end up dead in no time you rely need to now what your suit can do and know just when to use thows abilatys to the fullest and the game rely helps you do just that with good controls once you get the sensativaty to your liking the booten placement rely helps you controle the charter and pull off a buch of cool moves that look rely nice

and speeking of looking nice this game is so fucking good looking that i acholy dead 10 time because i was not paying atenchon to the game play insted i was looking at the games graphics lol

okay now even thow iv been singing this games prise thar is sum problems and it lies in the Multiplayer and the fact that it is completly unbalinced and has almost no rank filtering when looking for a match say you just got the game today and deside to play a mach youd start as rank1 and youd end up with rank30 in the same match it has cosed alot of people to up and quit the game witch is sad but i think they just need to fix that and a copel ofther minor bugs and the game would be good as gold

otakunicks retro reviews (blue sub 6)

okay i know i ushaly leve the retro reviews to anime that predate 2000 but i think hell its been out for 10 years its old anuph for a retro review so il be reviewing blue sub 6

 Blue Submarine No. 6 is a 4ep OVA that ran in October of 2000 with a over all length of 32 minuets a ep and was directed by Maeda, Mahiro who also directed the The Animatrix tho hes probably best know for his mecha design Top wo Nerae! and Escaflowne

the story is strait forwerd and not all that great The once famous and well respected scientist Zorndyke has bred a new genre of living being, one that thrives on the oceans and lives to destroy humans. Zorndyke believes it is time that the humans were relieved of their rule of the earth. It is up to Blue Submarine No. 6 and the rest of the Blue fleet to put an end to Zorndyke's madness and creations. but the charter interactions and motivations make up for the story's week points

now this OVA did sum thing others of it time failed to do and that the integration of CGI with computer cell animation meaning the carter are and sum backgrounds would be drawn using a program like PS or illustrator and a majority of the action scenes would be full CGI and tho it looks sum what dated now back in 2000 this was the best use of CGI i can think off it was crisp clean and detailed  and had almost no animation problems the charters where properly proportioned and had vary naturel movements

the music was rely nice as well mixing jaz with and rock witch to vary distinctive never gets to overpowering and at the same time comes to for front when needed  and to this day its a OST i listion to

over all i can say is this is a must watch for any anime fan good art good charters ok story and great music

otakunicks retro reviews (appleseed)

hey guys i'm back with another retro review and this time i am looking at appleseed sum of you are probably scratching your heads thinking how is this a retro review the appleseed movie came out in the mid 2000's well yes there was a appleseed movie in the 2000's but i am looking at its predecessor witch was made back in 1988 and in my opinion its the spearer film

now appleseed was originally a manga written by Shirow, Masamune back in 1985 who other then making appleseed also made ghost in the shell and most recently real drive so needless to say this story is coming from a man well versed in cyberpunk story's 

and story is where appleseed shines After World War 3 the General Management Control Office construct an experimental city known as Olympus inhabited by humans, cyborgs and bioriods. Bioriods are a genetically engineered being created to serve mankind. They run all administration of Olympus. Olympus was meant to be a utopian society. But for some it is less of a utopia and more of a cage. Calon Mautholos, an Olympus city police officer, is one of these people. Calon secretly conspires with a terrorist, A. J. Sebastian, to destroy Gaia, a super computer that runs Olympus. Out to stop them are Olympus city police SWAT team members Deunan Knute and Briareos Hecatonchires. Deunan and Briareos are determined to stop the terrorist plot by any means necessary.

as for voice work id have to say its around above the norm for the 80's and the ENG dub is not haff bad i can say the only reason i watch it in Japanese is because thats what i first watched it in witch is saying sum thing for a 80's movie

and speaking on the 80's the art, animation style and even the music are obviously 80's witch is not necessarily a bad thing a lot of the best OVAs and movies come from the 80's in my opinion

over all i have to say if your a fan of cyberpunk and of the maker of ghost in the shell watch this movie it dusint tie into the newer movies but its still worth the watch

mylene jenus figure review

hey guys just hear to show off sum thing i got at Anime Boston this year a non scale mylene jenus figure from the macross 7 anime series by by TB(toybook) 

now my compatriots hear at otakuhome thought i was stupid for getting this figure but truth be told i rely got this thing for one hell of a price compared to what its going for on amazon witch mind you is curently $198 plus shipping to where i only played $10 

and i must say i am happy with this figure its just your basic fixed posed figure with base and the paint aps are good only one real flaw theres no lips witch is anime accurate but on a figure its a bit weird  but i like it i am a fan of the show its from and to a lesser existent a fan of the charter herself so i don't rely mind it plus you don't rely notes it unless you look up close and even then a little paint and problems solved granted id rather a basara figure but i can wait to get me a hi-metal VF-19 kai
