Episode Review: Break Blade 6 (Final)

It is always worth the wait. The blood and tears mean more in "Break Blade" than they do in most animes. As the minutes go by in Episode 6, this first-rate anime goes beyond and over, not letting any precious moment be a waste of time. As Rygart deals with his tragic past of recent events, prepare to be kidnapped by the fate vs hope of the Kingdom of Krishna. (more…)

Episode Review: Kaze No Stigma 1

It seems a day on Netflix has served a good purpose. "Kaze No Stigma", not a new anime but new to MEDIABEAST, might have earned it's place in our review roster. The plot has not completely revealed itself but it looks like it can amount to something great. First review, here we go...... (more…)

Episode Review: X-Men 12 (Final)

Can't say I'm completely satisfied but when it comes to X-Men, you get used to the second-rate endings. When things start to look like it's going to be awesome it's always that one crybaby that ruins everything. Although, this season finale does not measure up to previous episodes, it has some nice gifts and still somehow finishes off strong. (more…)

Episode Review: Blue Exorcist 14

It's hard to take this anime as serious as it started. At least, it does not continue to get worse as the episodes progress. The Esquires go on another training session or better yet, a competition. Who will move on and be permitted to do missions? We will soon find out. (more…)


31 Days of Video Games: Day 24

31 Days of Video Games: Day 23

It doesn't take national approval to see that games are indeed art. While some "respected" critic who’s only form of rating is a thumb may disagree, anyone who actually takes an open-minded look at any video game will see that art is involved in any and all games. The question posed today is which game had the best art style? I’m going to narrow this down to our current generation of games and go with Prince of Persia.   When I first heard of the reboot I was more than excited for the free running game play but then I took a look at the screens and I was stunned. It was a completely different Prince with a whole new style. At first I was put off by it (similar to the Wind Waker reaction) but then I watched videos and it started to grow on me. By the time I was actually playing I was completely immersed in the game.   Let’s start with the menu screen. There’s no 3d model to speak of its simply concept art...


GPR – “It’s…..Bastion. Please play Bastion”

31 Days of Video Games: Day 22

Now-a-days it seems like every game has a number after it. With the ever expanding sea of sequels, sadly there are some that end up being worse than their predecessor. And that’s what we’re dealing with today, Most Disappointing Sequel. The biggest let down in recent memory comes from a series with legions of fans, spanning movies, television, clothing, and videogames. I’m talking about Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2.   Now the first game put you in control of Starkiller, Vader’s secret apprentice. He has a masterful control of the Force and that put you in a wonder place as the player. You feel powerful. You feel like a Jedi or Sith (depending on how you play). I was well received by fans so the sequel had a lot of pressure on it. Kinda hard to top that...   Unfortunately, it fell pretty flat. The story was weak if it was even there, there were a few tech issues that didn’t need to be there, and th...

31 Days of Video Games: Day 18

What's going on guys? James here with day 18 of our 31 Days of Video Games. Today we're going to talk about my favorite Protagonist. I think back across my pass games and I remember all of the epic adventures they've spawned. So many characters I thought the choice would be impossible but as I booted up Wind Waker to finally beat, it hit me...Link.   So I'm sure you are wondering "What makes Link your favorite protagonist?" Think back on the names Link has received: "The Hero of Time", "The Hero of Winds", and "The Hero Chosen by Gods". I cant think of anyone else holding one of those titles never mind all THREE. He is also bearer of one of the most recognizable gaming symbols ever, the Triforce of Courage. When you can’t go through a geometry class without thinking of Link, he’s obviously doing something right. Speaking of recognition, Link has undergone quite a few different looks throughout his career. From t...

Episode Review: X-Men 10

With a shy look, this anime looks completely awesome and can easily suck you in, but with a deeper look, some things begin to seem rushed and not given enough detail. Coming to its end, "X-Men" looks as if it will continue to go out strong as Mastermind reveals his plans to achieve his mutant-ruling goals.  (more…)
