Anime Review : Fullmetal Alchemist

Edward and Alphonse Elric are alchemist brothers who were born and raised in a village called Resembool in the country of Amestris. They lived with their parents ( Trisha Elric and Von Hohenheim) in a lovely home, until one day their father left home and disappeared for unknown reasons. Few years later, their mother died from a severe illness. Devastated by her death, Edward decided to bring her back to life by using Alchemy. Both brothers, Ed and Al, researched about human transmutation that turned out to be a forbidden technique, in which one tries to create a human being and resurrecting him\her.

Their attempt to bring their mother back failed, and it resulted with the loss of Edward’s left leg and Alphonse’s entire body. In order to save his brother, Edward sacrificed his right arm. The only thing Ed managed to do was to bind Al’s soul to a suit of armor. A few days later after the incident, an alchemist named Roy Mustang pays a visit to the Elric brothers. He offered Edward the position of being a member in the State Military of Amestris ; in return, the brothers will be provided with more research materials on how to get their bodies back.

Future Unfolding is one game you don’t want to miss

Future Unfolding is one of the most exciting gorgeous looking games I’m looking forward to in 2015 along side other wonderful games like Wild or Rime. Here’s the full description of the game, no need for edits!

“Future Unfolding lets you explore a world filled with life, both beautiful and dangerous. The world is procedurally generated, and each play-through allows you to experience a new and different layout. Observe and interact with the wildlife to get clues and discover patterns in this mystical place. Use the patterns to locate hidden secrets and find your way to the goal. Find your path with the help of wild animals, while avoiding the other less friendly creatures.”

The game is coming out in 2015 for the PC.

Lethal League Review: No Weak Shit

scr15

Lethal League is a competitive projectile fighting game where you have to hit an anti-gravity ball into the face of your opponent to win, all the while jammin to a kickass soundtrack.

The ball speeds up with every strike, up to explosively extreme velocities. Play intense local matches with friends and foes, challenge yourself in the singleplayer mode or battle it out online.

The Good

Great stylish art style. Awesome soundtrack. Amazing gameplay that’s unique, extremely challenging, and fun to play with, especially when you get to hit the ball at an extremely high speed. Really fun to play with friends locally or online, and the online matches are incredibly smooth with really little lag to be found. A handful of unique characters with different play styles and specials to play around with.

The Bad

Craving for more game modes.

The Money

Priced at 14 dollars on Steam, Lethal League is unique, creative, extremely fun, and challenging as f*ck game which proves one of their key features ‘No Weak Shit’ being true. With nothing like it at the market at the moment, and it’s high replay value, it’s defiantly worth the purchase.

Final Thoughts

I’ve been playing the prototype that they had for a while, and had a really fun time playing it, then when i got my hands on the finished version, my enjoyment level went through the roof with nice polish, variety of characters with different play styles, more environments and more awesome music to go along with it, plus the edition of the extremely smooth online battles is just great, and getting really excited when you get the ball running at extremely high speeds. But i do wish there was more game modes to play around with like lets say for example adding a basketball hoop and score and get more points, just something to spice the variety up a bit. I can also see the game being played at a competitive tournament that would be really exciting, if not the most exciting thing to watch.

Amazon Officially Bought Twitch

On a statement released on Twitch.tv confirms that Amazon has officially bought Twitch for approximately $970 million in cash. Here’s the full statement:

“Dear Twitch Community,

It’s almost unbelievable that slightly more than 3 years ago, Twitch didn’t exist. The moment we launched, we knew we had stumbled across something special. But what followed surprised us as much as anyone else, and the impact it’s had on both the community and us has been truly profound.

Your talent, your passion, your dedication to gaming, your memes, your brilliance – these have made Twitch what it is today. Every day, we strive to live up to the standard set by you, the community. We want to create the very best place to share your gaming and life online, and that mission continues to guide us.

Together with you, we’ve found new ways of connecting developers and publishers with their fans. We’ve created a whole new kind of career that lets people make a living sharing their love of games. We’ve brought billions of hours of entertainment, laughter, joy and the occasional ragequit. I think we can all call that a pretty good start.

Today, I’m pleased to announce we’ve been acquired by Amazon. We chose Amazon because they believe in our community, they share our values and long-term vision, and they want to help us get there faster. We’re keeping most everything the same: our office, our employees, our brand, and most importantly our independence. But with Amazon’s support we’ll have the resources to bring you an even better Twitch.

I personally want to thank you, each and every member of the Twitch community, for what you’ve created. Thank you for putting your faith in us. Thank you for sticking with us through growing pains and stumbles. Thank you for bringing your very best to us and sharing it with the world. Thank you, from a group of gamers who never dreamed they’d get to help shape the face of the industry that we love so much.

It’s dangerous to go alone. On behalf of myself and everyone else at Twitch, thank you for coming with us.”

So there you have it folks, Amazon.com just bought Twitch.tv, let’s see where this goes from now on.
