Wishbone and the Amazing Odyssey (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the PC game Wishbone and the Amazing Odyssey for Windows & MAC.

 

In this game, Wishbone (Our favorite snack & book loving hound) is accidentally sent into a virtual storybook setting of the Odyssey by Homer where he unintentionally takes both the role & identity of Odysseus.

 

In this game, you follow the story of of Odysseus for by doing so will you eventually free Wishbone from this virtual storybook setting.

 

Along the way, you meet timeless characters from the Odyssey consisting of Eurylochus (Odysseus’ 1st Mate), Polyphemus (cyclops & son of Poseidon), Athena (goddess of wisdom), Poseidon (god of the seas), Circe (witch), Tiresias (blind prophet), Hades (god of the underworld),  Zeus (king of the gods & god of lightning and thunder), Calypso (demi-goddess), Penelope (Odysseus’ wife) and Telemachus (Odysseus’ son).

 

In conclusion, this game teaches you history, mythology and culture as you play. Thus, I hope you find this game as educationally fun as I do.

At SEEDs, Keri enjoys creating beautiful, hand-crafted items using ceramics and wood and she is also a regular contributor to this blog. Here, Keri shares experiences from her wonderful trip to Hawaii. (Ed.)

Hello my name is Keri I went to Hawaii for 6 days. It was really green and tropical. I went to one Island it was called Oahu. I chose that Island because it had a lot of activities to do. I went to a couple of different places. I went snorkeling at Hanauma Bay and went on a helicopter ride too. On the helicopter ride we flew over the island. We flew over the Dole plantation and the world’s largest maze, too. We also saw a waterfall on the helicopter ride. Also, we went to the famous Waikiki beach. Pearl Harbor was neat and we saw the Arizona Memorial. We went to the Cemetery of the Pacific were World War 2 veterans were buried.  We went to see the state capitol too. Also, we went to a luau and a dinner cruise too. For the dinner cruise we went on a Friday because if you go on a Friday you would see Fireworks where they set them off at the Hilton Hawaiian Village.  It was really beautiful scenery and breathtaking beaches.

Originally Released for the PS2 on March 16, 2006, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age has been officially remastered for the PS4.

 

The main protagonists of this game are Vaan (Rebel Orphan)(Swords/Greatswords), Ashe (Dalmascan princess) (Katanas), Basch (Knight) (Swords/Spears), Balthier (Sky Pirate) (Guns), Fran(Viera) (Bows), Penelo (Vaan’s Childhood Friend) (Staffs).

An example of this game’s story is that the Archadian empire is waging war in an ongoing attempt towards world domination, thus resulting in the deaths of Reks (Dalmascan soldier/Vaan’s older brother), Rasler (Nabudisian prince/Ashe’s husband) and Raminas  (Dalmascan king/Ashe’s father).

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.

Larimar Facts

Larimar facts

*”Early theories suggested Larimar was produced by the Sea, later by the earth’s volcanic movements. … The stone is formed when hot gases push crystallized minerals up though volcanic ‘tubes’. In order to mine and excavate the stone miners must identify these tubes and dig deeper and deeper into old volcanoes.”

Quoted From

*Larimar stones were named after the ocean and the daughter of the man( Miguel Mendez) who rediscovered it, Larissa and Mar which means sea in many languages.

*Larimar is a form of pectolite. But it is the only specific form of this crystalline.

*It  was rediscovered in 1974. It was originally discovered in 1916. Father Miguel Domingo Fuertes Loren asked permission to mine the blue stone he had found, but his request was denied and no one else knew of it until it’s rediscovery.

*Larimar stones are only found in the Caribbean sea in the Dominican republic on the island of Hispaniola.

The lost, little guinea pig.

 

Hi! My name is Max and,I know what you’re thinking, he’s a tiny, young, abandoned little pet with no collar. Now, Im waiting for the pet shop to open up their doors. A life on the run isn’t always what I wanted. I had it good until my stupid cage mate wanted to dare me to see how high I could jump on the trampoline and touch the top of the cage. Now, you’re probably wondering why did you take the dare in the first place? And you would be correct! But let’s start at the beginning. The day of my birth. My parents were the greatest. I was born in a rescue mission in Australia. Back then, you didn’t have rules, there was only a preserve, the den, my parents and me. Every couple of months a lucky little guy got to be picked out to become a candidate for adoption. You know who got picked out this time? It wasn’t me. It wasn’t my parents. It was always some other guinea pig that was fatter, cuter, fluffier and overall better looking. That was my life. I had everything I ever wanted; Food, shelter and loving parents that looked out for me. Then one day, I decided to ask mom and dad if I could take a walk outside my den. “ I don’t know sweetie” my mother said. “I promise, I’ll be careful”. “I would like to go and follow whatever that noise is that I hear every day” “you mean the human pets?” his mother replied? “Yes, so that’s what I hear” said the guinea pig uhmm… honey are you ok?” said his mother. “ Life is nice inside a rescue shelter but, if only I could see what’s beyond the grassy plain” he said. “But sweetie, you are-WE-are safe in our home. Besides there are hungry animals that would love nothing more than snacking on a plump, young, juicy guinea pig.”  “Now, go to sleep.” Our inspection is tomorrow and you may be picked out by a nice family.” she replied. “Ok…. mother” Later that night, I was sleeping when I had a dream. I was following a trail of cookie crumbs to what knows where and it led to a giant cookie on top of a mountain. Beyond, I could hear a voice calling me. “Come, join us; we have more cookies” more cookies…cookies….coookkkkiiiiessss………………………………………………………………….”Cock a doodle doo! I awoke the next morning . “Mom! Dad!” I had this really weird dream last night”. I was following these cookie crumbs and this voice kept saying ‘“come,join us we have more cookies”’! Then a giant cookie on top of a mountain!” Outside a guard was eating a snack and leaving crumbs behind as he walked back to his shift.” It looked like-” I looked around for a good example to tell them. “It looked like that” He pointed to a trail of crumbs on the floor at the bottom of his cage. “I must follow the crumbs!!” he started to run but, as he did his mother and father caught him by the skin of his tail. “You’re not going anywhere young man!” said his mother. “ thats right” his father agreed. “Now, eat your breakfast!” she demanded. After breakfast, I played with Mr. Amigo, my squishy mariachi toy. “Not fair! Not fair!” I was sad that I couldn’t leave the shelter. I thought my parents wanted more for me but I couldn’t even convince them that wanted to explore the world. I squashed that squeaky toy as hard as I could. Pop! Out came a little snack. The rescuers liked to put little goodies and treats inside our toys as a reward for good behavior. But I hadn’t been good. What was this treat doing inside “Mr. Amigo” so I ate the treat. “Yummy”! I exclaimed. Hmmm… let’s try this again. I ate one more. Then, I popped out another and another… and another…. “Oooohhh, I don’t feel good.” things were going great ! I would cry wolf then rescuers would come get me and then I would be taken to the infirmary where I would be loaded with Gas-X and released to quarantine where I would stay for a couple days and eventually be released into the great beyond. It worked and that’s how I ended up here.

The end
