Premature Christmas Lights

But they were quite nice to look at.  I spied these the other night on my way home from work and thought the brightness of the lights compared to the darkness of night would make a lovely contrast.

Generations Blurr Pics and stuff.

I always had a soft spot for the speedy blue fast talker, and this time I am not talking about Sonic the Hedgehog...  this Blurr looks like he has a lot of elements from the IDW comics version that has Blurr on Cybertron before the Transformers got to Earth.  Well his head does.  The rest of him is just a recolour of Drift, with some small modifications.

Jazwares Black Knight version of Sonic

Oh goodness me.  I was so scarred by the how bad Sonic and the Secret Rings was I didn't bother buying this game.  But I did want me a Sonic action figure.  So I opted for this little fella.  Considering the size of it (8cm) I thought it would suck.  I was pleasantly surprised.

Soundwave superior! Everyone else inferior! War For Cybertron rawks!

War for Cybertron is a cool game.  What makes it even better is that the toys have been ace as well!  Here I have Soundwave, one of my favourite characters from the olden days and it's nice to see him coming back to form, both in the game as well as the toys!

Sonic Colours Special Edition toy review

Dodgy Blurry pics aside, the return of Sonic this is certainly welcome.  I managed to get the 'collector' edition' which came with a Sonic the Hedgehog action figure.  He also comes with 3 Wisps.  Is the toy as good as the game?

Wow, Incredible clouds

Bit of a hot day today, although not uncomfotably so.  Was fairly humid which added to the feeling of it being hot.  However, the air flowing over the Darling Ranges provided a natural and pretty bit of eye candy.

Wow, so fluffy.

Figma Dead Master review.

After the joys of BRS, I decided it would be fitting to have a yin to the yang.  So here is Dead Master in Figma form.  It doesn't come with a bloody great big gun, but she does have a couple of skulls and a scythe.  Can it live up to the wickedness of BRS?

Warning: Harry Potter & Deathly Hallows Pt 1

I haven't seen it yet, but I think the world should know:

  • The credits are ridiculously long and there is nothing at the end.  I am not kidding.  Stupidly long.  Your reward for sitting through them? NOTHING!
  • Daniel Radcliffe is in it.  This warning should be common knowledge by now.
  • Emma Watson is unlikely to get her kit off.

That is all.

Game downloadable content. Good, bad, or just ugly?

I was chatting online with some chums, and talk of gaming and the War For Cybertron Transformers game came up.  A sequel has been announced for 2012 and we were concerned about the life of the game.  After all, as one friend pointed out two thirds of the game is online....

Japanese sweet red bean paste muffins. HELL YEH!

Ok, I had to make some morning tea for my final day of Prac.  So since I had gone to the effort of making some red bean paste (known as 'an' in Japanese) I thought I would use in muffins and see how it goes.  After all, anpan (an bread) is totally damn yummy!

New Goodies ゲット!

Ha ha ha ha!  Todays Grabs. (Dead Master just in there since I am testing it out )

Sonic Colours for the DS, Generations Dirge (soon to be compared to Henkei) and Generations Blurr, based on the IDW comic look I suspect, judging from the look of his noggin!

Hope DS version of SOnic is as fun as the Wii one!

Sonic Colours on Wii. Yay or nay?

I have been surprised by the Wii lately, games I actually want to play onit?!???  Goldeneye 007, Kirby's Epic Yarn, and Sonic colours have shown up.  I have said it once and I will say it again, I love Sonic the Hedgehog, I just hope this game doesn't break my heart like all Sonic games since Sonic Adventure series on Dreamcast...

Figma Dead Master - Hachaaaa!

In the post today, the follow up from Black Rock Shooter, comes the charismatic and intriguingly named DeadMaster, BRS's enemy I assume.

Very nice so far, light on accessories, but it does come with a nice couple of skulls and they have mini stands for them and a very very nice ( and like BRS, large) scythe.  Why all these baddies are given scythes to fight with, which personally I think fairly inefficient, I don't know.

Will have to bust out Queen's Blade Airi and they can have a maid of death-match, er to the death... I guess.

Play time and photos soonish....

Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1

Sonic the Hedgehog has been going through a bit of a revival lately.  Parts of Sonic Unleashed were really good, Sonic and Sega Allstars Racing is an ace kart game that rivals (and copies) Mario Kart nicely, Sonic Colours looks promising and now Sonic 4 shows up.  This game has been officially confirmed as the continuation of the original game series on the Megadrive. I would like to say this game is a return to form for my favourite spiky rodent.  In way a way it is. It's a return to 2-d form.  Sadly though playing this game makes me want to go and play the Megadrive ones, instead of continuing woth this one.

Figma Black Rock Shooter review

This Black Rock Shooter Figma makes an interesting story. I remember it being mentioned in the pre-orders and online. It was popular and pre-orders sold out quickly. Odd I thought as I knewg nothing about it, but I liked the look of it. Why? Because it has a massively oversized gun. How could I resist?
