All About KidX13
I Bought Saints Row: The Third today, and i was very disapointed to find that the manual was three pages long and only listed the controls, nothing else. This seems to be a trend lately, Arkham city, Gears 3, Mortal Kombat and more. EA recently announced that their games would no longer include manuals at all, Starcraft II had a manual, but it was just 25 pages of re-cap of the first game. I can understand with the advent of digital downloads that we wouldn't get a manual, but when i buy a physical copy i expect something more than just a disk in a box. I rember games like Warcraft III which had a manual with a whoping 150+ Pages, and went into great detail about EVERY aspect of the game and even told a story, or almost all of the Civilization games, witch where huge. Or even console games, go look at the manual to the origional Zelda game and how imginative the iluistartions are, heck even the console versions of GTA came with maps. Games used to come in huge boxes, with multiple disks, book sized manuals, and even maps. I know it's cheaper to just give us the bare bones, but i wish companies would put more effort into physical releases noawadys. I just miss those days when buying a game made you feel special, like you got something more than just a disk.
Due to lack or intrest i will not be making anymore posts on this account, i will however write reviews that are horriblly typed and never read however, so sorry but this is thae last you'll hear of me (for the forseeable future) If you want updates and stuff pleas follow me on gamespot fuse, it kicks major @$$ and i'll be using that from now on
I love the anime ranma 1/2 and i have just had the pleasure of wathcing it's first theatrical movie, and i'm here to hsare my thoughts,
If you don't know what ranma 1/2 is, basiacly this teen boy has a cuurse on him so that when he's splashed with water, he turns inot a girl, and hot water turns him back into a boy, halarity ensues.
If you don't know all the charecters, you can still enjoy this movie as there is a lenghty opening credits sequence invloving a chase around town that will give you a brief introduction to them (though you'll sadly only see some of them in this sequence) The basic plot of this movie is: Akana(ranma's fiance)is mistaken by these 7 gods of martial arts as the one to marry their leader (who by the way only talks in the third person so it's kinda confusing as you think he's talking about someone else), so she's taken abord their fly ship where they eat nothing but rice and pickles (i'm not making this up), and so ranma and his "firends" must set out to china to save her.
As i said before if you don't know the chatecters, you will still enjoy this moive, but being familiar with all the charecters and their little traits/quirks really adds to your enjoyment. One of the best things about this movie is the art, the charecters emote wonderfuly, the effects have punch, and the background are GORGEUSE!!! I mean it these backgounds are phenomenal, i often feel like i could walk right into them. The voice acting is also top nothc, it's no one famouse, but ani e lovers may recognize some voices. Some charecters are anoying, but you get used to them.
I also want to bring up the music of this movie as it is great, the score ads much to the drama, intensit, and humor, and on that note, this movie is d*mn funnythe jokes are great on their own, but their only made better if you know alot about the charecters. There is only one real song in this movie entitled "It's love" and is a great song to end the movie on, and you'll actually want to watch the credits to hear it (BTW watch untill after the credits for a really funny joke).
There is a little bit of action in ranman 1/2 and this moive is no exception, as it has a Game of death stlye sequence in which ranma must defeat the 6 gods, and it has one epic (and very creative) finall battle.
Now there are some negatives to this movie, as i said, the voices of some charectersdo get anoying, and there are some gaping plotholes and sone just plain stupid things, also the fights with the 6gods are feel like a wasted oportuinity as the fights are short and their usually defeated in lame ways, ther is also a lot of wasted potentialby not including some of the shows charecters, but the main ones are there, and they're funny.
So overall, not the best movie ever, but a great one, i give it a 4/5, and if you haven't seen the anime yet, heres a link where you can watchthe enitre series and both of the movies free on youtube(well almost he's missing like 2 episodes somewhere) http://www.youtube.com/user/AnimeXHunterRX#p/p Yeah, definettly check it out, well see you soon, and yes i know i haven't reviewed a game in awhile, i'm workin' on it, and yes this review is probably filled with typos, you don't have to remind me!!!
