[jcarousel source="post" link="image" size="200x200" limit="3" items="3" speed="400" margin="10"]

Before you rage out read the title, this is a beta  review. It is based on my experience thus far with the beta of Tear online for North America. This is not a final review or ruling as the game is changing week to week, patch to patch. The developers have been putting a lot into the game, fixing translation problems, bugs, and all sorts of problems. The approach has been very proactive and very community involved which is a good thing. For all the flaws found thus far, the localization team has had an answer, or a forum post, or a patch note to address it with. This is once again a good thing, “They are listening to the players” to an extent of course. Ok let’s kick this off by explaining that my review will be broken into several categories to keep it simple.

What is Tera Online? Tera, also known as The Exiled Realm of Arborea is a fantasy massively multiplayer online role-playing game, developed by blueholestudio and published by En Masse Entertainment in the US and Frogster Interactive in the EU. TERA was released in Korea on the 25th of January 2011. The game is scheduled to be released in the US on the 1st of May 2012 and in the EU on the 3rd of May 2012. It features questing, player-versus-player combat, player-versus-environment combat as well as crafting. In short it’s a MMORPG, and you have your choice for open world PvP or just PVE with controlled PvP.

Love is War Miku Review by Plastic Parfait

I saw this review and Just had to share it with you. This Figure comes in two different variants this is the cheaper of the two but it’s still an amazing figure. You can buy it for about $130 retail if you can find one, it’s getting hard to find. Check out this Link HERE for the review. Found a few on Amazon, better act fast if you want it. This figure is stunning, Good Smile Company delivered big time on this figure.

Classic Review: Princess Mononoke

What can’t I say about this film, and yes I would go as far to say that this not just anime, this is ground breaking, awe inspiring, and more powerful than K-On Movie and many other anime’s to grace the big screen since. もののけ姫 Mononoke-hime is a film that stands in Roger and Ebert top 10 films of all time. Thousands of critics have weighed in on this movie, and it has floated on rotten tomatoes at a solid 95 out of 100.  I don’t have to tell you how good this movie is, recently re-watching brought back some deep memories of anime of yesteryear. Watching many other animations from the 90′s to compare to Mononoke and yet for some reason this film just looks current, like it has not aged a single year since it’s release back in 1997. Outstanding, astonishing and timeless, just a few of the words that come to mind while watching this movie, hands down one of the greatest animated films of all time.

[nivo_slider width="640" height="360" link="file" delay= "5000" effect="fade"]


At this passed animeland wasabi, I had forgotten my roomkey one morning and decided to hit up the video rooms to kill some time. While being familiar with the majority of the shows currently airing I hadn’t really given one much of a chance. That show was Mouretsu Space Pirates, Miniskirt Pirates or possibly better known as Bodacious Space Pirates. I was really caught off guard by this show, previously I had only given it a one episode but I found once I returned from the con I quickly caught up to the current episode.
