Chaos’ 6 month round-up: 2019 part 1

It’s been 6 months already so that means I’ll be doing a quick rundown of this year so far in terms of movies, anime and games.


Movies

The Mule: This was a pretty funny but also emotionally fulfilling film. Well worth watching.

Cold Pursuit: This one had potential however it tried too hard to be a comedy when the opening sets up a rather different tone. Not to say it didn’t have funny moments but there were bits that felt rather groan inducing.

King of Thieves: A mostly funny movie that was a little slow at times and ended a bit anti-climatically. Might have to give it another watch some day though.

Shazam!: An excellent movie that feels like it could become a classic within time. It was just a lot of fun and relatively well performed with some hard hitting scenes. It might get a little ridiculous at the end but considering previous DC efforts this is a diamond in the rough.

Detective Pikachu:  This was actually better than the game it was based off in many aspects however it has pacing issues and ultimately some of the spectacle was unnecessary when it could’ve gone into developing the villain and other side characters. If the original game had a story more in line with the movie while maintaining it’s original pacing and game-play it could’ve been something amazing.

Avengers: Endgame: A somewhat solid ending that could have been an amazing ending with some better editing cutting out some of the meh parts and that one time paradox they throw in at the end.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters: I’m not very knowledgeable or experienced with this series but out of all the ones I’ve seen (which only includes western ones at this point) this has to be best one so far. It was a very entertaining watch and the human characters weren’t as bad as I had been lead to believe.


Anime

Beatless: Wasted potential and completely forgettable even after all the recap episodes.

Overlord III: The story is still solid but the animation seemed to take a downgrade from what I could tell (mainly dealing with jank 3d models) which is unfortunate.

Hataraku Saibou: Excellent show that could even be considered educational. It’s a fun comedy at heart although you could argue it’s kind of action show. Worth watching either way.

Fate/Stay Night Heavens Feel – II: Lost Butterfly: Mostly well done with excellent action and I’m honestly impressed with just how much they committed to the more adult themes in the VN considering how previous anime skirted around certain scenes in the past.  The pacing is a bit all over the place and I’ll be reserving my final judgement for when the final film is released.

Release the Spyce: The best part of this series was the soundtrack, or at least that was the most consistently good part. Otherwise this one was just decent, not a waste of time but not a must watch series by any means.

Mob Psycho 100 Season 2: Probably the best series I’ve seen this year so far. Everything ramps up to an exciting climax and it has quite a nice amount of depth. Both seasons are probably a must watch in my book.

Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai: A cute comedy anime about romance except each interaction is treated as some sort of battle. It strays a bit from its premise towards the end of the season but either way the characters are quite charming and it’s got a good amount of laughs.


Games

Earthbound (Wii U VC): An incredibly charming rpg that didn’t have the same impact as Earthbound Beginnings for me but improved upon that games ideas in terms of gameplay and visuals.

Marvel’s Spiderman: Probably the best spiderman game since the Gamecube era ended. I have some issues with the story towards the end and peter didn’t have the most compelling character (I enjoyed how they handled most of the doc oc stuff). Qualms with the story aside the gameplay is a lot of fun and it looks pretty neat. I’m going through the DLC now but don’t expect to include that in the next post.

Kero Blaster (Switch): A fun platform shooter game that takes some of the visual style and gameplay from Cave Story and gives it a more linear set of levels and a lot more difficulty. Worth looking into.

Octodad: Dadliest Catch (Switch): It was nice to finally play this one but it’s quite short and not the most polished experience. A decent novelty but wait for a sale.

Mega Man 7 (Switch): Played this as part of the Mega Man legacy collection 2. It was mostly a good time although the final boss was a bit of a pain. Don’t have much else to say it was just a solid experience somewhat typical of the series.

Inside (PC): Very interesting game that while not as stylistic as Limbo it was certainly more fun to play. Especially the ending sequence which is a mixture of horrifying and funny.

Kirby: Triple Deluxe: A pretty good kirby game that aside from the use of 3D doesn’t exactly do much to stand out from the others. This does have some good tunes and is pretty fun to play though.

Valkyria Chronicles Remastered (PS4): An excellent strategy game with a pretty good story that has plenty of emotion in it. It’s got guns and third person gameplay that lets you aim at the enemies yourself however you can’t play thoughtlessly each move needs some sort of planning and it ends up being a satisfying experience to get through just one battle without losing any units (yep there’s perma-death as well). I really enjoyed my time with this one even if it gave some beatings along the way.

Yoshi’s Crafted World: A beautiful and fun game hampered by too much tedium and a sudden and stupid rise in challenge on the final extra boss level. I recommend just casually playing this one and not bothering with 100%.

Bayonneta (Wii U): Finally got around to this one in my backlog. It was a wild ride and very fun but I can’t see myself constantly replaying it although that seems to be the appeal of this genre of game. Maybe I’ll revisit it at some point since it certainly has style.

The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince (Switch): A fairly simple puzzle platformer that’s ultimate appeal is the cute (and slightly unique) visual design and it’s heartfelt story. Well worth trying out if you see it on sale.

Dark Souls Remastered (Switch): I finally got around to trying the infamous Dark Souls and it was honestly one of the most addictive game-play experiences I’ve had in a while. There’s a reason it’s often critically acclaimed and it’s probably due to all the depth in the gameplay itself to the point where I can’t even say I felt like I had learnt most of it. It helps that there’s a metroidvania element to some of the design and while the start was rough, after a certain peak in difficulty the games difficulty plateaued and it was nowhere near the torturous path as expected. I now join the long list of people who recommend this game.


And that’s it for now, I’ll be posting again once the year is over. Hope you all got some enjoyment from this post.

Chaos’ 6 month round-up: 2018 part 2

Well 2018 is over so now is a fine time to go through all the stuff I’ve finished and then begin work on the yearly lists. As for the previous part it’s going to be as concise as I can manage and you’ll have some music to listen to while you do other things in different tabs. Speaking of which.


Movies:

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom: Some interesting ideas with a really dumb ending. It has set up and interesting potential direction for the future of the series though.

Mission Impossible: Fallout: More interesting than the previous mission impossible and a good action flick. However it is somewhat forgettable.

Ant Man and the Wasp: A really fun flick however it reuses some jokes from the previous entry in an obnoxious way that didn’t seem needed. For the most part it’s solid though.

The Meg: An absolutely ridiculous action flick that scratches a particular itch. A fun time.

Johnny English: Strikes Again: Somewhat family friendly comedies are hard to find or at least they are hard to find done well. I’d say Johnny English does the job quite well even if it’s not rowan Atkinson’s best work.

Venom: I still can’t believe this was actually good. It was a fun action comedy and I hope to see them produce a good sequel.


Anime:

DragonBall collection part 1: I can’t easily recommend original dragon ball so far while I enjoy the overall tone and some of the fights the amount crude humour is off-putting and overall it hasn’t aged well. It was very interesting viewing the roots of the series though.

Sonic OVA: A rather dated and ridiculous movie, but it was fun to watch even if it was a little strange.

Uma Musume Pretty Derby: A concept that on paper should be garbage but it turned out watchable at very the least and had some really good moments. Funnily enough it felt too slow at times.

Fate Extra: Last Encore: Why does this even exist? It’s a continuation of the game in a sense (the same way Zelda has a fallen hero timeline) however it needs to spend so much time explaining the game that they would have been better off just animating the plot of game instead. So prepare to be confused no matter if you’re new to the story or not and even once the plot clears up there’s no pay-off for anyone who hasn’t played the games in my opinion. Such a waste of potential.

Lost Song: Really good, watch the whole thing.

Jashin-Chan no Dropkick: A fun comedy series with a relatively fast pace. It’s also quite violent but I’d say that’s a huge part of the charm and comedy so it’s not for everyone.

Emyia-san Chi no Kyou no Gohan: Can only recommend this to fate fans but it’s short and sweet with some nice comedic moments.


Games:

Heavy Rain (PS4): A very dramatic game that can be pretty punishing if you mess up certain QTE’s. Was interesting to play but outside of PS+ I wouldn’t recommend it.

Super Smash Bros for 3DS (3DS): This was a fair bit of fun but outside of smash run it’s very lacking in quality single player content. A good game but one that outside a handful of stages has become obsolete.

Castlevania: The dracula X chronicles (Vita): 3 excellent games in one. Includes Symphony of the Night, Rondo of Blood and a 3D graphical remake or Rondo of Blood that has some extra content. Very much worth playing these if you want the best this series has to offer.

Pokemon Crystal (3DS VC): I’m including this since I never fully played this exact version of gen 2 before. However this is almost the definitive version of this particular gen unless you want specific pokemon.

Ghosts ‘n Gobblins (Switch): How the hell did people deal with this nonsense back in the day before save states? this gets stupidly hard at certain points but thankfully there is still some fun to be found amongst the pain.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony (PS4): While no game in the series has surpassed the original this one gets very close at points and that’s mostly due to the final chapter (Not so much the epilogue though). A solid story but one that requires playing the previous games to fully enjoy.

Super Castlevania IV (SNES classic mini): Was in the mood for more castlevania this October and this title while no Rondo of Blood was a great time. It’s got some interesting control differences that make it stand out alongside a more linear progression (3 and Rondo both had branching pathways). Some of the jumps are stupid hard in terms of timing which is odd since the game seems like it falls on the easier side things most of the time, thankfully the SNES mini gives you some work-a-rounds for anything you find to be too bull shit.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow (Wii U VC): A decent Metroidvania game that has a rather absurd story. It’s a lot of fun to play although I don’t know how much I will remember of it in the long term.

River City Ransom (Switch): I’m not big on beat em ups but since I had family to entertain I decided to give the co-op on this one a shot. It was a surprisingly fun time and I think that’s due to how forgiving the game is and it’s rpg-esque stats that let you push your way through some of the more nonsense parts over time.

Resident Evil: Code Veronica X (PS4): Having never played an old school Resident Evil this was quite a shock to the system at first. The controls take time to adjust to (I recommend using the d-pad personally) but after that this is a fun and very tense game that I can at least somewhat recommend.

Super Mario Party (Switch): The best Mario Party in years from what I can tell, but then again the last one I played was Mario Party 8 which was a train wreck so perhaps I’m not the best judge here. This is a fantastic return to form from my perspective though and it would be even better if it just had more content (Boards and Minigames specifically).

The Legend of Zelda: Breathe of The Wild (Wii U): I really had to push myself to finally go back and finish this one. It’s a good game but it outlives it’s welcome and it really doesn’t play like Zelda. If anything it feels like a massive over-correction to the problems of Skyward Sword.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy (PS4): I had an absolute blast with these games. The games themselves are still great 3d collect-a-thon platformers that are fairly relaxing to play. The audio and visual overhaul is great and while not perfect it’d be difficult to go back to the originals now.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (Switch): This game consumed me throughout December thanks to the single player content which I actually found to be plentiful and enjoyable. However I’m still keeping myself busy with this one, and I plan to keep going back to it throughout 2019. It’s pretty bloody good and I’m glad to finally have some of my favourite characters in the game.

Adventures of Lolo (Switch): This game is a neat little distraction assuming you can use save states. It’s a good time if enjoy block pushing puzzles (don’t worry it’s not as slow as it sounds) but I doubt it’s for everyone.

BONUS CHAOS VAULT –

Zelda NES and Metroid NES (Switch): Thanks to Nintendo’s online NES thingy I got a chance to play some games I had not played before but I also got a chance to replay these two. Surprisingly it feels like the Zelda NES has aged better than Metroid NES. Metroid NES can be too Labyrinthine for it’s own good but Zelda NES for it’s age actually has many distinct screens for most of it’s overworld and the dungeons actually have maps that you can collect. However Metroid does feel more fun to play when you’re not worried about 100% completion and I enjoyed replaying it quite a bit.


Well that’s 2018 over and done with but I’ll be doing some top 10’s soon so keep an eye out I guess.

Chaos’ 6 month round-up: 2018 part 1

It’s already been 6 months man this year flying by fast. This is going to be a summary of this year so far in terms games, film and anime (Based on what I’ve experienced this year NOT what was released this year). Anyway here we go.


Movies:

Coco: An enjoyable little family movie that was predictable but quite fun.

Black Panther: A fun movie but nothing amazing as far as Marvel standards go.

Rampage: A surprisingly good movie considering what it sounded like on paper. This was a lot of fun to watch and despite it’s own stupidity it had quite a bit of heart.

Avengers: Infinity War: Quite ambitious and went in a different direction than expected. Will have a more solid opinion once the next movie comes along.

Incredibles 2: About as good as I expected to be honest. While not always masterpieces Pixar rarely produce anything I would consider even bellow average. This movie wasn’t as good as the original but it worth my time.


Anime:

Net-juu no Susume: A cute slice of life/romance anime that actually had a decent ending which unusual for the genre from what I can tell.

Kakegurui: A pretty damn good show with good style and good writing although it could use a second season.

Fate/Apocrypha: An action packed spin-off of the fate series that takes place in an alternate timeline where the holy grail is stolen during WWII and ends up in Romania (At least from what I remember anyway). There’s plenty of new faces and few old ones showing up here and there. Overall it was a blast to watch even if it’s not of the same calibre as the main series.

Blend S: A simple comedy that has it’s moments. Was often funny but hasn’t exactly stood out in my long term memory.

Killing Bites: Looks like trash at first glance but it’s actually a fun and often brutal battle anime that really needs a second season.

Kokkoku: This show was just really good and well worth watching for yourselves. Probably the best anime I’ve seen these past 6 months.

Shoukugeki S3 part 1: It’s pretty much the same as the previous seasons but with much greater steaks and drama. Looking forward to more.

Overlord II: I honestly didn’t expect the direction this went but I can’t say I’m disappointed. This show is a lot of fun and another that keeps me wanting more.

Hakata Tonkotsu Ramens: This was a pretty good movie… wait why does it keep going? This never really peaked past the first story arc and I guess that happens with some shows.

Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata Flat: A somewhat mediocre follow up to a decent show however there’s a movie on the way that should give this a proper ending.

Violet Evergarden: A really beautiful show and a really sad one. It’s no Clannad but it really pulls on the heart strings.

Classroom of the Elite: This show has some potential but it felt kind of bland, though it might go in an interesting direction after the reveal in the last episode. I have no clue if more is on the way or not.


Games:

Batman: the telltale series (PS4): A fairly standard Telltale game that’s a little glitchy and didn’t leave a strong impression one way or the other.

Pacman 256 (PS4): A fun take on Pacman that while somewhat visually pleasing feels too much like it was designed for mobile at times.

NieR: Automata (PS4): An excellent game that is fun to play, visually interesting, has an in depth narrative and world building, and really makes you think about some heavy topics. Really enjoyed this one.

Grow Home (PS4): Short platformer that was quite charming and fun with a somewhat unique climbing mechanic.

Super Mario Odyssey (Switch): A fantastic game and one of Mario’s best outings giving the series the creativity it was desperately needing as of late.

Detective Pikachu (3DS): While there’s some laughs to be had Detective Pikachu feels like a very bare-bones Ace Attorney Investigations. It was cute seeing all the pokemon but the human characters all look low budget and ugly. The plot also kind of falls apart at the end with the true villain being quite underwhelming. A lot of wasted potential.

Maro Kart 7 (3DS): I finally got around to finishing this game and quite frankly it was better than my first impressions lead me to believe. It certainly has a terrible character selection though but it’s not as bullshit unfair as Mario Kart Wii and introduces many of the great mechanics that were perfected in Mario Kart 8.

OPUS: The day we found earth (Switch): A somewhat forgettable point and click game where you locate planets using a telescope. It’s very simple but it’s cute and tells a neat little story.

Kirby: Star Allies (Switch): A somewhat standard Kirby game but with a lot more characters for multiplayer and some interesting twists. It’s a little on the short side but there’s more content on the way from what I can tell.

Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky (Wii U VC): This game has an addictive quality and I ended up playing to a point where there wasn’t really much fun stuff to do or anything particularly interesting to unlock. I’m quite fond of it but I’m hard pressed to recommend it to anyone.

Hey! Pikmin (3DS): An adorable spin-off to one of my favourite games. It’s a 2D puzzle platformer that reminds me a little of Kirby’s Mass Attack but at a calmer pace. I really enjoyed the presentation and it was a lot fun.

Zero time dilemma (PS4): The final game in the Zero Escape trilogy. It certainly provides an interesting conclusion and many scenes of characters dying in brutal ways. It takes on less of VN feel and looks more like a Telltale game (but without the constant glitching and a lot more polish). However the core gameplay is the same as the first 2 entries. I recommend playing them all in order but good luck finding the first game.

Rime (PS4): Kind of a pretty game with some okay puzzles but it moves too damn slow for my liking.

Beyond: Two Souls (PS4): This was an interesting experience, very similar to other story based games but there was an extra layer of interaction that kept me engaged and intrigued. The story ends on some weird cliffhanger trying to hint at a sequel which kind of sucks (There’s multiple endings though so maybe only some do this?).

Persona 5 (PS4): Never played a Persona game before so I was surprised just how much I enjoyed this. I didn’t 100% this one but I can’t say I was expecting to either without looking up a walk-through or having intimate knowledge of the game. Hell maybe I’ll come back one day to play the New Game + it’s just that fun.


Well that’s all for now folks. See you all in another 6 months I guess.

Top 10 Anime Watched in 2017

Just another quick list of Anime I watched last year. Once again this is what I personally watched in 2017 and not necessarily about anime from 2017 itself. If you want those lists plenty of them already exist by people who are far more dedicated to the medium than I.

Honourable Mention goes to Konosuba 2. It kind of missed it by a hair I’d say and along with numbers 10 and 9 it could’ve gone either way depending on the day and my mood.

Anyway onto the actual list.

10. Attack on Titan Season 2:

9. Keijo!!!!!!!!:

8. Boku no Hero Academia Season 1:

7. Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199:

6. Danganronpa 3: 

5. Mob Psycho 100:

4. Koe no Katachi:

3. Shokugeki no Souma:

2. Little Witch Academia: 

  1. Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] I. presage flower:                                                          

That’s all for now, I’m hoping that get just as many or if not more great experiences with this medium this year.

Top 10 Games Played in 2017

Happy New Year folks! This tradition will be sticking around even if the Chaos Blogg series is gone. Plus this lets me quickly run through the years highlights without much forethought. But first lets get some honourable mentions out of the way

Honourable Mentions:

  • Pokemon Ultra Moon (3DS)
  • Miitopia (3DS)
  • The Wolf Among Us (PS4)

Now let’s begin the countdown. Also a reminder that these are the top games that I played in 2017 and not from 2017 itself.

10. Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (Wii U):

I finally got around to finishing this one and it was kind of worth it since this is a solid kart racer that even gives Mario Kart a run for it’s money.

9. Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star (Vita):

Not the most engaging game but I personally found it to be a lot of fun and I’m curious to see if the sequel will be translated.

8. Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition (PS3):

I never expected to enjoy this as much as I did. It’s a lot of fun and has aged pretty nicely from what I can tell (It’s also reeking of the 80’s and 90’s).

7. Doki Doki Literature Club (PC):

The game was free and probably one of the most impacting things from last year. However I get the feeling it’s going to get stale considering just how much YouTube has been devouring this title.

6. Shantae: Half Genie Hero (Wii U):

While this is probably the worst Shantae game it’s still a fantastic title that oozes with charm, I just hope the future of the series is more like Pirates Curse and Risky’s Revenge than this.

5. Stardew Valley (PC):

A calming little time-sink that helped me immensely during a period without internet. Very enjoyable and relaxing (for the most part).

4. Blaster Master Zero (3DS):

A fairly underrated metroidvania-esque game that was a real blast to play through. Very much satisfied my craving until a certain title was released.

3. Gravity Rush 2 (PS4):

A really beautiful game that’s also quite fun. It would’ve been number 2 had it not been for it’s story and writing which just kind went all over the place and had terrible pacing.

2. Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (PS4):

Crash returns with these fantastic remakes that not only update the visuals but improve some crucial flaws in Crash 1’s design. Some of the most fun I had this year.

1. Metroid: Samus Returns (3DS):

While it is a remake the latest managed to provide a fresh experience without deviating too much from what makes a good Metroid title. I’d say this is thanks mainly to the warp point system which is a first for the 2D games and great work around for Metroid II’s more linear map. I love it.

And that’s it for games played in 2017, next time I’ll be covering anime and then maybe I’ll do a movie list.

Chaos Blogg 85: The Last Doki Doki Christmas

I hope you’re all enjoying your holidays or if they’re already over I hope you enjoyed them. I’m currently enjoying a nice mix of scotch and Pepsi while contemplating what the hell I’m going to write. The following ‘reviews’ won’t be too positive (well there will at least be one large negative one), so enjoy some music before the more negative stuff begins.

Doki Doki Literature Club (PC):

The latest internet sensation, that’s free on steam and that you’re best off playing blind but just keep in mind the warnings before you make your choice to do so. As for now I’ll try to avoid spoiling much but if you want full impact best stop reading and move on to the next section. I’ll be honest I had known some spoilers going in myself but I didn’t know the whole thing and was still shocked and taken aback multiple times. Not everything is as it seems and if I was to compliment the title it does the whole subversion thing correctly as subverts convention with a specific purpose and payoff while also foreshadowing a shit tone without necessarily making things too obvious. I’m still left with the impacts of this game as even the music brings upon a certain emotion and uneasiness. For a free VN it’s extremely well crafted with deep characters that I found myself relating to a little too much at times. Of course internet culture is probably going to ruin in this one if it hasn’t already so get into it before it completely decomposes in front of you. If I do have one criticism it’s that the ending is a little sloppy with it’s pacing but it does provide a good emotional end point so it’s not terrible by any means. Adventure into this if you dare.

Fate/stay night [Heaven’s Feel] I. presage flower (Anime Movie):

I had a whole bunch of shit written for this one and I swear I fucking saved it but I guess this prick of a website decided to delete it or something. Fucking glitch filled piece of shit. So instead of putting in any effort I’m just gonna rapid fire this shit from this point. Starting with this movie which was really fucking good but you need to watch Fate/Zero and UBW first. Next!

Danganronpa 3 (Anime):

It’s good but you need to play the games first and you need to watch it in a specific order. Some of it felt like it was exploiting fans for cheap emotional ploys at times but it’s nothing majorly detrimental.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Movie):

It’s pretty looking garbage. It takes all the potential of it’s own ideas and the ideas presented in Episode 7 and fucks it over in an attempt to be subversive and different. All plot-lines are killed off anti-climatically leaving absolutely no fucking reason to see episode 9. I don’t think I’ve been this disappointed in Star Wars since Attack of the Clones. Also they did wrong by Luke’s character and everyone who can use the force is pulling off ridiculous shit with no explanation or build up. Then add on the Finn and Rose subplot that was absolutely pointless, some lacklustre attempts at comedy, and Ghost Yoda who can now summon lightning.

Rokudenashi Majutsu Koushi to Akashic Records (Anime):

A generic action/comedy/drama anime about magic battles for the most part (the twist is that the protagonist is a magic teacher, I guess). It felt very generic but it wasn’t bad.

Justice League (Movie):

Not the most groundbreaking movie visually, but it’s a serviceable popcorn flick if you have low expectations. It’s probably second best out of these DC movies so far but it’s not even close to Wonder Woman in terms of quality.

Chaos Vault: Animal Crossing New Leaf Welcome Amiibo (3DS):

I went back to playing this in October and have played it throughout these past months. It’s calming and thanks to the update there was a lot more shit for me to do. I plan on re-visiting this title every once in a while in between games. Good shit.

Pokemon Ultra Moon (3DS): 

Not enough is different in the earlier portions to fully justify the price however I’d say this is the definitive gen 7 title at this point in time. End game and Post game are dramatically improved so far and I hope to keep playing this into the new year. I just wish they had been a bit more honest with how similar this was going to be. Especially since B2W2 showed that so much more can be done with a pokemon sequel. Wait for a price drop I guess.

So I think it’s time to say goodbye to the Chaos Blogg series folks. I’m putting it to rest since I don’t think I’m enjoying this anymore nor is it really fulfilling. I’ll be doing some lists to end the year but other than that unless I change my mind this is farewell to these semi-regular posts. Enjoy these pictures and have a happy new year.
