Spyro: Reignited Trilogy(Preview)

Related image

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to talk about the upcoming game Spyro: Reignited Trilogy for the PlayStation 4.

This game is comprised of all three PlayStation 1 Spyro the Dragon games remastered exclusively for the PlayStation 4 which in fact are Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage and Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon.

 

Spyro the Dragon marks the beginning of Spyro’s adventures quests to free the dragon population from their Crystalised Prisons, liberate all six Dragon Homeworlds from enemy occupation, recover all of the stolen gems and vanquish the evil Gnasty Gnorc.

The Dragon Homeworlds are listed as Artisans, Peace Keepers, Magic Crafters, Beast Makers, Dream Weavers and Gnasty’s World.

 

Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage takes place after the events of Spyro the Dragon.

While on his way to Dragon Shores for a well deserved vacation, Spyro makes an unexpected detour to the mystical realm of Avalar which is under constant threat from the evil, imperial wizard Ripto as well as from from Ripto’s Lackeys Gulp and Crusher.

In this game, Spyro makes new friends here such as Elora (a Faun), Hunter (a Cheetah), the Professor (a Mole), Moneybags (a Bear) and Zoe (a Fairy).

Avalar’s HomeWorlds consist of three major areas that are known as the Summer Forest, the Autumn Plains and the Winter Tundra.

 

Spyro 3: Year of the Dragon takes place after the events of Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage.

In this game, Spyro and Hunter travel to the Forgotten Realms (the dragon’s original homelands from a thousand years ago) to recover all the dragon eggs which were stolen by the the Evil Sorceress (the Forgotten Realms’ dictatorial monarch) and her army of Rhynocs.

In this game, Spyro makes new friends/allies such as Sheila the Kangaroo, Sgt. James Byrd (a Flying, Military Penguin equipped with Twin Rocket Launchers), Bentley the Super-Intelligent Yeti and Agent 9 (a Space Monkey/Secret Agent).

The Forgotten Realms’ Homeworlds consist of 4 major areas that are known as Sunrise Spring, Midday Gardens, Evening Lake and Midnight Mountain.

 

In conclusion, I think it’s so cool that they’re bringing back spyro for a new and improved encore performance.

This game will be available for a heated purchase on Tuesday, November 13, 2018 so be sure to be ready for a fiery unveiling.

One Piece(Anime Series)(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the anime series One Piece. The series takes place following the World Government’s public execution of the Pirate King Gol D. Roger aka Gold Roger, but the Pirate King’s final words in turn usher in the Great Pirate Age (you want my treasured legacy then you can have it for everything that is mine has been gathered together in one place).

 

Most of the characters possess supernatural abilities which they acquired from eating Devil Fruits. The Devil Fruits in this series into 3 different categories consisting of Paramecia (supernatural abilities-mystical), Logia (supernatural abilities-physical & mystical) and Zoan (supernatural abilities thereby resulting in a physical transformation from Human to Animal).

 

The protagonists in this series are the StrawHat Pirates which are comprised of Monkey D. Luffy (the Straw Hat’s Captain whose dream is to be the next Pirate King)(Paramecia: Gum-Gum Fruit), Roronoa Zoro (a Pirate Hunter turned Pirate whose dream is to be the greatest swordsman in the world)(Zoro specializes in the 3 sword style which is where he wields three katanas in battle), Nami (the Straw Hat’s Navigator whose dream is to chart the entire world), Usopp (the Straw Hat’s Sharpshooter whose dream is to be a gallant warrior of the sea, just like his father Yasopp)(Usopp wields a giant slingshot in battle), Vinsmoke Sanji (the Straw Hat’s Cook (Sanji specializes in a kick-based fighting style), Tony Tony Chopper (the Straw Hat’s Doctor as well as a blue-nosed reindeer)(Zoan: Human-Human Fruit),Nico Robin (the Straw Hat’s Archaeologist)(Paramecia: Flower-Flower Fruit), Franky (the Straw Hat’s Shipwright)(Franky is a Cola-powered Cyborg with superhuman strength) and Humming Brook/Dead Bones Brook/Soul King Brook (the Straw Hat’s Musician)( Brook wields a Shikomizue/japanese cane sword in battle)(Paramecia: Revive-Revive Fruit).

 

In conclusion, I found this series to be equal in popularity to both Naruto and Dragon Ball in series length as well as series storyline.
