Hi there, Blog Readers. I have a special announcement I would like to share with you this week. After a long period of time, I’ve decided to try making comic books as part of SEEDs’ publishing agenda. I already have an idea for my first comic, but it might take time due to developing the artwork. I will share the official first-look in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. This game takes place shortly after the events of its prequel, Epic Mickey. Unlike Epic Mickey, this game features co-op action where player 1 plays as Mickey Mouse and player 2 plays as Oswald the Lucky Rabbit.
In this game, Mickey returns to Wasteland (a realm where forgotten toons reside) only to find it has become inert (due to the damage caused by the quake) as well as finding that the Mad Doctor has turned over a new leaf (which is in fact an act of deception for a much grander, evil scheme). As such, both Mickey and Oswald work together to save Wasteland and Stop the Mad Doctor. The game has two endings (the game’s ending as well as the fate of the Mad Doctor depends on your actions in the game).
The main protagonists in this game are Mickey Mouse, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Ortensia and Gus the Gremlin. The main antagonists in this game are the Mad Doctor and Prescott the Gremlin.
The multiple versions of Pete we see in this game are Big Bad Pete, Pete Pan (Adventureland version of Pete), Petetronic (Tomorrowland version of Pete) and Small Pete (It’s A Small World version of Pete).
In conclusion, I found this game to be both magically heartwarming and spiritually, wonderfully amazing. Truly, this is a one of a kind Disney game that has touched and forever will touch the hearts of children throughout the ages.
Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the videogame version of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King for the PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube and Xbox.
In this game, the LotR characters you play as are Gandalf the White (Wizard)(Weapons: Staff/Sword-Glamdring the FoeHammer/Magic),
Aragorn (Human)(Weapon: Sword-Anduril the Flame of the West),
Legolas Greenleaf (Elf)(Weapons: Twin Elven Daggers/Bow of the Galadhrim),
Gimli (Dwarf)(Weapon: Double-Headed Axe),
Samwise Gamgee (Hobbit)(Weapon: Westernesse Dagger) and Frodo Baggins (Hobbit)(Weapon: Elvish Blade-Sting).
The game’s storyline begins during the Battle of Helm’s Deep with you playing as Gandalf. Afterwards, the game’s storyline splits into three different paths. The 1st path is The Path of the Wizard where you play as Gandalf, the 2nd path is The Path of the King where you play as Aragorn, Legolas & Gimli and the 3rd path is The Path of the Hobbits where you play as Sam and Frodo.
The levels in The Path of the Wizard are Isengard where you help the Ents defeat Saruman the White, the Top Wall of Minas Tirith where you aid in Gondor’s defense and Minas Tirith’s Courtyard where you hold the line as you usher civilians to safety.
The levels in The Path of the King are The Paths of the Dead which you explore as you seek both the The King of the Dead as well as the Undead Army of Dunharrow, Gondor’s Southern Gate, Pelennor Fields where you aid the Armies of Rohan against the Witch-King of Angmar as well as the Armies of Mordor and Mordor’s Black Gate where you make a final stand against the Dark Forces of Mordor.
The levels in The Path of the Hobbit are Osgiliath where you attempt to escape from Faramir and his Ithilian Rangers, Shelob’s Lair where you try to find and rescue Frodo from Shelob the Ungolian Spider, the Fortress of Cirith Ungol where you try to rescue Frodo and Mount Doom where you must both defeat Gollum as well as destroy the One Ring of Doom.
In conclusion, I found this game to not only follow it’s movie counterpart in perfect sync, but also make the story concept more action-packed/adventurous/mystically dramatic thus in turn making this a perfect game-related choice “For All Free Peoples”.
Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Sonic Unleashed for the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. Unlike other Sonic the Hedgehog games, Sonic will have two forms consisting of his standard form during the daytime and his Werehog form during the nighttime.
In this game, Dr. Eggman unleashes an ancient evil known as Dark Gaia which in turn shatters the planet into seven pieces, transforms Sonic the Hedgehog into Sonic the Werehog and renders the seven Chaos Emeralds grey and powerless. In his Werehog form, Sonic’s speed is diminished and yet in turn gains both immense physical strength as well as stretchable limbs. Now Sonic must restore the seven Chaos Emeralds, fix the planet and defeat both Dr. Eggman and Dark Gaia to break the curse of the Werehog placed upon himself.
The nine locations you visit in this game are Apotos (based on Greek Mediterranean architecture-Greek island of Chora, Mykonos Greece/Greek city of Santorini),
Spagonia (based on western European architecture-Italian city of Siena),
Mazuri (based on Africa),
Holoska (based on Alaska),
Chun-nan (based on China’s architecture),
Shamar (based on a Middle Eastern desert-Petra, Jordan),
Empire City (based on New York City),
Adabat (based on Angkor, Maldivian, and Southeastern Asia),
Eggmanland and the Planet’s Core.
The cast of characters are Sonic the Hedgehog/Sonic the Werehog/Super Sonic,
Miles “Tails” Prower,
Dark Gaia and Chip/Light Gaia.
In conclusion, I found this game to showcase the eternal conflict between light and darkness that takes place in the world as well in each and every one of us. But as long as we all stay true to ourselves, the light in us will illuminate our lives and the darkness in us will be in turn suppressed forevermore.

(Same As It Never Was)
Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie’s Revenge for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. This game was first released on October 21, 2004. This game is a direct sequel to The Nightmare Before Christmas movie.
In this game, Jack Skellington leaves Halloween Town again to seek new ideas and discoveries to improve on Halloween. Before leaving, Doctor Finkelstein gives Jack his latest creation: the “Soul Rubber” as a farewell gift.
In his absence, Oogie Boogie’s minions (Lock, Shock and Barrel) sew Oogie Boogie back together who in turn takes over Halloween Town, brainwashes Doctor Finkelstein, imprisons 5 of the 7 holiday leaders and attempts to take his revenge on both Santa Claus and Jack Skellington in order to ultimately become the 7 Holiday’s King.
When Jack Skellington returns to Halloween Town on December 24, he must maneuver through Oogie’s traps, battle past Oogie’s army of skeletons and ghosts, rescue Oogie’s prisoners and confront Oogie’s Minions (Lock, Shock and Barrel), Oogie’s Shadow and Oogie Boogie himself.
The 7 holidays in this game are Halloween, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Easter and Christmas.
In conclusion, I found this game to be a celebratory accomplishment to multiple, major, big-time holidays as well as combining the fear with the cheer.
Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review a Power Ranger Christmas episode: I’m Dreaming of a White Ranger. This is the 16th episode in the 3rd season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as well as the 2nd Power Rangers Christmas special.
The episode plot is described as follows: ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, and at the North Pole; Brainwashing children was Lord Zedd’s goal.
His inventions were stirring, all the plans have been made; So Rito and Goldar and the Tengas just played.
While Santa and his helpers are held at their shop, There’s a good chance that Christmas will just go kerplop.
Now the Rangers have been summoned to put a stop to this deed, But have they the power they’ll eventually need?
In short, the Power Rangers have to save Christmas without their powers due to a combination of the North Pole’s unique polarity and a cross-current of holiday magic.
In conclusion, I found this episode to showcase the Christmas spirit both magically and heroically.
Hello, My name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Care Bears: Nutcracker Suite. This movie was first released on December 10, 1988.
In this movie, The Care Bears (TenderHeart Bear, FunShine Bear and Grumpy Bear), The Care Bear Cousins (BraveHeart Lion and LotsaHeart Elephant), The Care Bear Cubs (Hugs and Tugs) and their new human friends (Anna and her little brother Peter) try to help an amnesiac Nutcracker “who is in fact The Prince of Toyland” as he attempts to rescue The Sugar Plum Fairy, recover the Prince’s magic ring “whosoever wears this ring has complete control over Toyland” and liberate Toyland from the tyrannical wizard, The Evil Vizier and his army of rats, led by the Rat King.
In conclusion, I found this movie to be a true dedication to Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker as well as being one of two Care Bear movies to be based off of a different franchise “the other franchise is Alice in Wonderland.”
