He and his men make an effort to only injure the Central forces they come across, but that only pisses off the enemy commander who sends more men.

Game Review- Battlefield: Bad Company 2

March 29, 2010

Being the sequel to 2008’s Battlefield: Bad Company, BC2 does everything you’d expect from a second offering; everything that worked in the original was expanded upon, and things that needed improvement got reworked. The overall result is a polished, engaging experience that is easily the best Battlefield game ever created. The campaign starts off in familiar Battlefield territory: World War II. The Japanese have developed a secret weapon that the Americans are desperate to get their hands on. However, your squad fails in procuring the dangerous super weapon, and its detonation marks the end of your adventure in the ‘40s. Read the rest of this entry ?

Tokyo International Anime Fair 2010

March 28, 2010

Anime Fest. The event conjures up images of thirteen year-old cosplayers with styrofoam swords and swag laden bags hypnotized by the polarity of sexpot dolls and kawaii plushies. As the Tokyo International Anime Fair approached, I thought back to previous convention giants-San Diego Comic Con, WonderCon (based in San Francisco) and the emerging NY Comic Con.

Movie Review- Repo Men(2010)

March 23, 2010

The story takes place in a near-future where people can buy replacement body parts and organs to prolong their existence and cheat the Reaper. If they fall behind on their payments, however, they can expect to have these parts repossessed by a debt recovery firm that can strike at any moment.

Law plays one such repo man, who gleefully carries out his trade with the help of his best friend and former army colleague (Forest Whitaker). But when an on-the-job accident leaves Law’s anti-hero with a new heart of his own and struggling to keep up payments, he’s forced to go on the run with his best friend in hot pursuit.

Kobato Episode 23

March 21, 2010

Ever since the nursery closed, Kobato has been sticking to Kiyokazu and trying to help him with whatever he needs. She even tries to get him to have some fun, but Kiyokazu just wants her to leave him alone. Ioryogi is more concerned about Kobato running out of time to gather konpeitou, but Kobato has made up her mind about what she wants. When Kiyokazu questions why she’s so concerned about him, she explains that he’s important to her. They return later to the apartment building, and Kobato receives a flower from the sky, so she tells Kiyokazu that she won’t be able to be with him the following day. He’s glad to hear this, but what he doesn’t realize is that it’s time for Kobato to leave. She departs the next day after saying goodbye to Chitose, and Kiyokazu doesn’t find out until he gets back home that evening. Read the rest of this entry ?
