Sludge of the Studio Series variety


Moar DINOBOTS!  Goddam life is good.  Sludge is one that I always wanted as a kid and never got.  I didn't get any of the Dinobots actually, until I got a gold box Snarl.  The Studio series took the wind out of Takaratomy's Generations Selects coloured versions made from the POTP figures, but with nicer paint, and personally I appreciate that as these Studio Series ones are looking good and a leader sized = Darn bigguns.

Gashapon Quest Wave 3, Portal to the Beast Kingdom

 Land, Kingdom, place, whatever.  Where the beast folk live.  

So here I am with a review of the wave three of Gashapon Quest plastic model figures.  Amazingly these things come from Gacha machines, yep, they're not cheap, but they're pretty cool.  I managed to get 3 of the 4 waves released from the machines, most of it was done through Bandai's online Gashapon site, which I didn't do, because:

  1. It's kinda annoying
  2. I kept missing the ordering cut-off dates...
  3. I think I discovered them kind of late.
  4. After market prices are OBSCENE!

So here is the first set I managed to complete myself.

God Of War 4 Completed

 I had to go back and check this, did I post about this game's experience when I started?  Not in and individual post, but I did start in my yearly gaming post.

So, now that it's done, what's the final verdict?

A resounding "meh, it was all right."

Doing a wee bit o maintenance.

 Hello there everybody.

I have recently discovered that some posts from a certain time are looking a little shakey. In that when you view their page where the image thumbnails are meant to be, there is just a filename.  It looks a bit like this:

Long story short, while the thumbnails don't display, if one clicks the link, it will take you to the appropriate picture.

Annoyingly a decent amount of the Generations Selects translations I did fall into this time.  So if you want to read them, rest assured they are still there.  I am going to slowly run about fixing up the affected posts, but as you can imagine, it's a bit of a PITA.  

Howevrm there we go.  No great problem, as nothing has been lost.  Woot.

Thank you for your patience.

Sonic Frontiers: Final Horizon - Finished

 Oh boyoboyoboy.

I was not terribly impressed with this DLC when I last posted about it. It was half arsed, to put it nicely... My main gripe was about the controls and shitty writing.  Well, they gave an update (yay) which fixed up most of the controls (yay) but not much they could do about the writing.  Seriously, the main story was so much better.

So with the controls fixed, I decided to get back into it and found things a little bit better. There is still much frustration though.

Transformers Legacy Snarl, of the nature of Core class


Ye olde Snarl would have to be my favourite Dinobot.  There is no doubt about the fact that Stegosaurs are cool!  Even to the point of me having a few different versions of the grumpy arse loner fellow now.  Yes, I have the Leader version stashed away somewhere.  Anyway, despite not really liking the concept of combining Dinobots... I did pick up Core class Swoop a while ago and was suitably impressed with the little bugger.  Therefore, Snarl should be on the get list as well.

I have no intention of getting the rest of the team as some of them look stupid and I feel that just because they are thematically similar, it doesn't mean they have to combine into a big super robot.

So, here we are with my post about me chatting about Snarl.

The small one.
