X-Men(Anime Mini-Series)(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the anime mini-series X-Men. This series was first released in 2011 and is made up of 12 episodes in total.

 

The locations in this series are the X-Mansion as well as locations in Japan which consist of the Tohoku Region, the headquarters of the U-Men and the Sasaki Institute (a Mutant Academy in Japan).

 

The main protagonists in this series are Scott Summers aka Cyclops (mutant power: Optic Energy Blasts), Logan aka Wolverine (mutant powers: Heightened Senses, Accelerated Healing & Adamantium Claws/Skeleton), Ororo Munroe aka Storm (mutant power: Manipulation of the Earth’s Weather), Hank McCoy aka Beast (mutant powers: Heightened senses & SuperHuman Strength/Agility), Emma Frost aka White Queen (mutant powers: Telepathic abilities as well as the ability to transform her physical self into solid diamond thereby making herself both immune to any and all psionic abilities as well as render herself indestructible), Hisako Ichiki aka Armor (mutant power: the ability to create/generate a Psionic Exoskeleton Body-Armor around herself thereby granting her SuperHuman Strength, Reflexes, Stamina, Endurance, Agility, Dexterity & Durability) and Charles Xavier aka Professor X (mutant power: Telepath).

 

The main antagonists in this series are the U-Men (an organization comprised entirely of psychotic mercenaries whose goal is to capture mutants thus the U-men then in turn dissect them in order to harvest the organs of said mutants thus the U-Men then in turn graft the mutant’s organs onto themselves thereby bypassing the evolutionary process of the human race) as well as a mutant terrorist group known as the Inner Circle. The 4 mutants that make up  the Inner Circle are Rat (mutant power: the ability to generate metal spikes from any part of his body), Marsh (mutant power: Shape-Shifter), Neuron (mutant power: Sensory Amplification) and MasterMind (mutant powers: Psionic Illusions/Mind Control).

 

In conclusion, I found that this series showcases the X-men’s struggles taking place in a completely new environment in their quest to accomplish Professor X’s dream in maintaining/preserving a peaceful world where humans & mutants can work and live together in total harmony.

Spider-Man Review

 

After several crappy games, Spider-Man is back and given a new lease on life thanks to developer Insomniac games. The game takes a different turn with the story than most Spider- Man games have in the past. This time around Peter Parker is an adult in his early 20s and works as a lab assistant for Doctor Otto Octavius. Shortly after defeating classic Spidey villain The Kingpin a new villain appears named Mr. Negative. Now Spider-man must stop him and bunch of other villains from wreaking havoc on the city.

The game’s story also ditches Spider-Man’s classic origin story and decides to tell a new story outright. Spider-Man is an open world giving you the entire city of New York to play around in. Like most open world games, there are tons of side activities to keep you distracted from completing the main story. The activities vary from finding backpacks throughout the city, taking over enemy bases, to even taking pictures of famous landmarks throughout the city. There are also random crimes throughout the city that you can stop to earn not only experience but crime tokens as well. There are also research stations in the game that have you do research on various things like throwing toxic barrels out of the ocean and rerouting satellite signals. There are also side missions in the game that are also a lot of fun as well. Web slinging does take a little getting used to but it is satisfying and web swinging throughout the city is a blast and very relaxing at the same time.  You can also web zip to make travel through the city faster as well.

Combat is also very satisfying. While you do have your punches and kicks that you throw at your enemies, you can also use your web slinging abilities as well webbing enemies up and using web swinging kicks on them. You also have a focus meter that when full you can either heal yourself or perform a finisher on an enemy. All the side missions that you do in the game give you different tokens that you can use to unlock different gadgets and different costumes in the game. You can also use the various tokens to upgrade your gadgets as well. There are several points in the game where you will play as Mary-Jane Watson and Miles Morales. While you only play as them a few times in the game they still are pretty fun to play. Their missions are mostly stealth missions with you sneaking past guards to get to a certain objective. There are also science puzzles that you solve throughout the game as well. These range from matching up DNA strands to rewiring circuits, while you are required to do them during the main story you can skip if you are stuck or you just don’t feel like doing them outright. Another side activity that you can do in the game is stopping random crimes throughout the city. They range from stopping a bank robbery, to stopping a car jacking, to stopping a kidnapping. All the random crimes in the game happen throughout different parts of New York. There are also stealth portions in the game where you can sneak up on enemies the traditional way and use your gadgets to take out enemies stealthily,  but you can also use stuff in the environment to take out enemies as well.

While as great as this game is there is really only one problem with it and that is that the game can be glitchy at times. For example, when I was playing the game I clipped through a police station and was unable to get out. The game also crashed on me a few times. Aside from that I thought the game was great and I had a lot of fun playing. Spider-man is exclusive to PS4 and is rated T for Teen. My final score for Spider Man is a 5 out of 5.
