|Crack the whip one final time|
Since April 29, Netxlix's youtube channel has been displaying the 4th and allegedly final season of the Castlevania series, on which Trevor, Sypha, and Alucard once again try to repel any evil that has been plaguing the land ever since Dracula's defeat back in the first season. To what is shown here, it seems some are readily trying to resurrect the evil count, as it was hinted back on season 3, with other vampires setting up secret worship altars to do the deed. The trailer also showcases Carmilla and her growing ambition to dominate the world by using the devil forgemaster Hector to create her army of monsters, while Isaac is on his own still loyal to Dracula and seemingly also waging war on the human populace.

Persona 5: The Phantom Strikers (PS4)
This was a satisfying experience all around. It felt like a true and proper sequel to Persona 5, although since they worked on Royal at probably the same time, the additional content doesn't mesh as well. But that's okay. Some really awesome moments in the latter half of the game - some that fit right up there with moments from the original. I think I was about half way through by the end of March, and I knocked out the last section of the game today so it would count as an April finish, although there are still some post-game missions to do, and the remaining trophies don't look too difficult to obtain. But I'm counting this one as done since I beat the final boss and watched the end credits.
|And it is Rivet|
A new trailer for the upcoming Ratchet and CLank game finally reveals who the mysterious female Lombax alien is called. Rivet is her name and she seems already eager to join the fight.

Krystal and the failure on female character development
You already know that Krystal was originally a RARE character before Nintendo got their greasy hands on her. Besides that, and thanks to the original prototype Dinosaur Planet game you also have learned that her role in said game was a whole lot more than just being captured and sitting around until the big man of the game Fox McCloud showed up and rescued her.
|Giving motivation with a simple artpiece|
Never stop creating.
|G.U.N enters the scene. Maybe.|
Not long ago, the twitter account of Sonic Stadium posted about the Sonic movie sequel's movie sets, speculating that G.U.N, a group of antagonists featured in Sonic videogames back from Sonic Adventure 2, might just appear on said movie.

FINAL FANTASY SPIRITS WITHIN
I saw Final Fantasy the Spirits Within at the theater when it was shown over this city on its opening weekend. Needless to say I tried keeping myself awake during the entire thing just because I wanted to see how it would end. At the end of the entire ridiculous thing one guy shouted how much it sucked and I nodded to that, walking out feeling cheated out of the money wasted in watching it there than actually just waiting to do so a lot cheaper by renting it on DVD format.
|Bots make any upload on that site worth a laugh|
I had many so call "copyright claims" sent to me whenever I bothered uploading to youtube, but this would be the first time that it would give me such a hearty laugh I just had to share it. According to BOTS on that site, music composed and programmed into the first Final Fantasy game on the NES is owned by some company called Warner Chappell.
Really? I had thought it was composed by a certain music creator named Nobuo Uematsu all those years ago. Apparently someone owns someone else quite the monetary compensation this being the case.
|Another solid month of gaming!|
Edit - a little early, but it's the afternoon of the 31st here and I don't imagine I'm going to finish another game today.

Sonic cancelled movie and Genesis prototype ROM
While some may had heard of it, I had just discovered that there was a planned american Sonic movie back in the 90s, after following the cartoon series shown during that time period. As far as I had seen on a video, it states that it would have Sonic jump into the real world chasing Dr. Robotnik and being helped by some kid who was responsible for both characters in jumping out of a game he was playing. A weird note here is that Chaos Emeralds would be in the real world in contrast to said game, seemingly without much explanation.
|Its gotten so tiresome, demeaning, and unprofessional|
On a latest game related video upload to a channel I subscribe to, the person hosting it blatantly and casually refers to a animal humanoid character as a "furry," continuing the never ending cliche of somehow thinking this "joke" is still relevant nowadays and just making me want to punch someone in the face because I am so damn tired anyone bothers doing this sort of thing.
|The next Anime installment which I consider the best|
Released in 2001, it lasted two seasons, all covering an entirely original story with no relation to any game established up to that point. The Anime here does have various call backs to what the game series are about, and the
artsyle is pretty colorful and, well, fantasy like.
|The 4 Red Mage March|
Had started a playthrough of the original Final Fantasy using an all Red Mage party, first thinking on using White Mages as to challenge what others had done before, but after some thought I had decided to use the aforementioned class, being that they cover most of other classes in terms of magic and physical combat, but also because they look so darn cool as well.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC (Steam)
This one clocked in at around 85 hours (in game), though Steam says it's around 63 hours. An interesting side effect of Turbo mode is that it basically speeds up time. I was absolutely hooked on this, finishing it up pretty early in February. So much character development, and a very engaging story that pays off all the setup from this game and the previous title. As soon as I finished it, I launched right into the third game.

|Want to experience what the game was going to be before Nintendo butted in? Here's your chance|
I posted my last blog entry about gameplay shown comparing the mostly adorable Dinosaur Planet with the meh-looking Starfox Adventures, noting that Fox being in said prototype was most likely part of the reconstruction into the latter game.
Well guess I was right on that observation. On a article at SyFy's website it tells the story on how a group called Forest of Illusion got a copy of a mostly finished ROM that was intended for the Nintendo 64 before scrapped and moved to Gamecube as part of the Starfox franchise. The video I posted here on my last update shows said ROM which now anyone can seemingly try and play. Said ROM was leaked this month too shockingly enough, so any Rare fan is not too late to experience it.
|Its a Rare-rity|
Have just watched a youtube video upload of Rare's scrapped game and the end result of said game with Starfox Adventures playing side by side. I have never seen the original game in motion before and can state it looked quite good and probably would had gotten my interest a whole lot more than what it ended up becoming.
|I helped localize a game|
Hey everybody. I got my name in the credits of the early access game "Sentimental K" after I helped redo some of the English localization. It's a fun roguelite. I have some Steam keys so feel free to DM me and I'll give them out until I run out.
|Or Earthbound 2 if you want to get technical|
Finally getting a try on playing Mother 3 on GBA. Found an emulated fan translated ROM at a site dedicated to the Earthbound series and so far its pretty intriguing albeit difficult. I am finding out using strategies in some spots is pretty much key in order to go forward, unlike its predecessor on which you can simply attack and use PSI attacks till enemies are done for.
The fight mechanic is tweaked a bit here, allowing you to make more than one hit when you got the know how. Just like its previous entries the game uses contemporary settings and tropes akin to our contemporary world instead of a medieval fantasy world, although monetary tropes here have been replaced by trading goods in order to get items to replenish HP/status/PSI and equipment.
|A New Sonic series coming up|
So the title to the new Sonic series has been announced, but don't get your hopes up on revealing anything that contribute to what will be about other than being on 3D.
