Sonic the Hedgehog(2006)(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Sonic the Hedgehog for the PlayStation 3. In this game you play not only as Sonic The Hedgehog, but also as Shadow the Hedgehog as well as a new character called Silver the Hedgehog. This game’s storyline takes place throughout the Kingdom of Soleanna (the City of Water).

 

The protagonists in this game consist of Sonic the Hedgehog (the Blue Blur)(Main Hero), Shadow the Hedgehog (the Ultimate Lifeform)(Sonic’s Rival), Silver the Hedgehog (a PsychoKinetic)(Time-Traveling rebel), Miles “Tails” Prower (a Two-Tailed Fox)(Sonic’s best friend), Knuckles the Echidna (the Last of his Kind)(the Master Emerald’s lone Guardian), Rouge the Bat (a Jewel Thief/Secret Agent)(Shadow’s accomplice), E-123 Omega(a Robotic Soldier)(Shadow’s ally), Blaze the Cat (a PyroKinetic)(Silver’s best friend/partner) and Amy Rose (a PikoPiko Hammer wielding Battle-Maiden)(Sonic’s self-proclaimed Girlfriend). The antagonists in this game consist of Dr. EggMan (the Main Villain)(an Evil super-genius/Sonic’s arch-enemy), Mephiles the Dark (the Embodiment of Darkness), Iblis(the Flames of Disaster) and Solaris (the Sun God of Soleanna)(the Flame of Hope/Disaster).

 

In conclusion, I found this game to be extremely tense yet highly emotional. For instance, there was both intense sadness and incredible happiness when Sonic the Hedgehog was killed by Mephiles the Dark then Resurrected through the power of all seven Chaos Emeralds. In short, this game is without a doubt worthy of being the Sonic the Hedgehog franchises 15th anniversary.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review all three The Legend of Spyro games for the PlayStation 2. The Legend of Spyro games are a reboot of the entire Spyro the Dragon game series and are consisted numerically as The Legend of Spyro 1: A New Beginning, The Legend of Spyro 2: The Eternal Night and The Legend of Spyro 3: Dawn of the Dragon.

 

The Legend of Spyro: The New Beginning reintroduces us to the dragon named Spyro and his companion/friend/brother Sparx the Dragonfly as well as follow their adventures to save the four guardian dragons each in command of a different element from the black dragon Cynder. The guardians consist of Terrador (Earth), Cyril (Ice), Volteer (Electricity) and Ignitus (Fire).

The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night follows the Continuing adventures of Spyro as he seeks out an ancient dragon of immeasurable wisdom known only as the Chronicler, tries to save his former enemy Cynder and foil the evil ambitions of Gaul: the Ape King. While doing so, Spyro not only regains the ability to utilize the elemental powers of the four guardian dragons but he also gains a new ability called Dragon Time which gives Spyro the power to temporarily slow down time.

The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon concludes the adventures of Spyro, who along with both Sparx and Cynder as well as their new friend Hunter of Avalar (Cheetah) ventures forth towards a final confrontation with the Dark Master who is also known as the dragon called Malefor. While Sypro wields the elemental powers of Fire, Ice, Electricity and Earth, Cynder wields four dark powers consisting of Wind, Poison, Fear and Shadow.

In conclusion, I found these three games in total to be an extremely incredible improvement over the original storyline which of course is saying a lot.

Ruby Facts

*“Rubies are made up of the mineral corundum. Corundum is aluminum oxide ( Al2O3). A ruby forms when there is a small impurity of chromic oxide in the corundum (an aluminium oxide in which some of the aluminum ions have been substituted by chromium). This substitution process is called an isomorphous replacement.”

Quoted from 

*Rubies are the Birthstone of July. (my birthstone)

*Rubies get there name from the Latin word for red “Ruber”.

*There are some rubies that have marks that branch out from the center called a star. For obvious reasons these varieties are called Star Rubies.

*There is a character on the TV show Steven Universe who is a Ruby.

*On a previous post I wrote about a character I created with my friends, who used an Amethyst “Powerstone” to gain superpowers, my sister also made a character for this game. Her character used a ruby.

Disney Magical World 2 (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles & I’m here to review the Nintendo 3DS game Disney Magical World 2.

 

This game is the 2016 sequel to the 2014 3DS game Disney Magical World with even more Disney worlds and characters to encounter, assist and spend time with.

 

The game takes place in a magical town called Castleton where you not only manage a cafe near favorable Disney characters such as Mickey, but you also can travel to six Disney worlds.

 

The six disney worlds are comprised of Disney’s Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs and Winnie the Pooh.

 

Throughout this game, you discover ghostly beings of unknown origins are invading Castleton as well as all six Disney worlds and you must use special magic wands to use Disney magic to deal with them.

 

In each of the six Disney worlds you can attend Anna & Elsa’s Snowman Festival, have adventures as a mermaid/merman under the sea with Ariel, mine for gems with the Seven Dwarfs, surf and hula with Lilo & Stitch, help tackle trouble in Wonderland and have fun both farming and hanging out with Winnie the Pooh & friends.

In conclusion, I find this game truly Enchanting and am certain of it to be one of the embodiments of disney’s greatest magics.
