Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Pretty Soldier Sailor Moon: Another Story for the Super Nintendo. This game was originally released in Japan as Bishoujo Senshi Sailor Moon: Another Story. This game’s  storyline takes place after the 3rd season of Sailor Moon (Sailor Moon S).

Rini/Serena & Darien’s future daughter from 30th century Crystal Tokyo/Sailor Mini-Moon (Transformation Call: Moon Prism Power)(Techniques: Pink Sugar Heart Attack and Pink Sugar HeartAche),

Ami Mizuno/Academic/Princess of the planet Mercury/Sailor Mercury (Transformation Call: Mercury Star Power)(Techniques: Mercury Bubbles-Mist/Freeze, Shine Aqua Illusion and Mercury Aqua Mirage),

Rei Hino/Spiritual Priestess/Princess of the planet Mars/Sailor Mars (Transformation Call: Mars Star Power)(Techniques: Mars Fire Soul-Ignite/Bird, Mars Celestial Fire Surround and Mars Fire-Snake),

Mina Aino/Athlete/Idol in Training/Princess of the planet Venus/Sailor Venus (Transformation Call: Venus Star Power)(Techniques: Crescent Beam-Smash/Meteor Shower, Venus Love Chain-&-Circle and Venus Wink Sword).

 

The Outer Senshi are Amara Tenou/Race-Car Driver/Martial Artist/Princess of the planet Uranus/Sailor Uranus (Transformation Call: Uranus Planet Power)(Mystic Weapon: Space Sword)(Techniques: Uranus World Shaking and Space Sword Blaster),

Trista Meiou/Academic/Guardian of Time/Princess of the planet Pluto/Sailor Pluto (Transformation Call: Pluto Planet Power)(Mystic Weapon: Chronol Staff)(Techniques: Pluto Deadly Scream, Chrono’s Cyclone and Time Freeze),

Hotaru Tomoe/Rini’s Best Friend/Guardian of Death & ReBirth/Princess of the planet Saturn/Sailor Saturn (Transformation Call: Saturn Planet Power)(Mystic Weapon: Silence Glaive aka the Grim Reaper’s Scythe)(Technique: Deathly ReBirth Revolution).

 

A few of the locations featured this game are Tokyo, the North Pole, the ancient Moon Kingdom known as Silver Millenium (Past & Present) and Crystal Tokyo (Future circa 30th Century).

 

In conclusion, I found that this game truly symbolizes both the beliefs and ideals of Universal Trust & Friendship. Thus I quote in the words of Sailor Moon to evildoers everywhere “in the Name of the Moon, I shall Punish You!”.

Mega Man: Legends(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Mega Man: Legends for the PlayStation 1. The story timeline in this game takes place around 80XX which is sixty thousand years after the events of the classic Mega Man game series. Around that time, the world was mostly covered in water, save for several islands as well as some ancient ruins that are located either in the ocean or on the islands themselves.

 

The story setting in this game takes place on Kattelox Island. The locations on Kattelox Island that you visit are Kattelox City’s Cardon Forest/Market Street/Junk Shop(South), DownTown/Library(Central), UpTown/Museum/TV Studio/Hospital/Boat House/Lake Jyun(West), Old City/Main Gate ruins(East) and Clozer Woods/Bank/Police Station/City Hall(North).

 

The main protagonists are MegaMan Volnutt (Main Hero)(Digger: adventurers that explore ancient ruins), Roll Caskett (Engineer)(Spotter: an adventurer’s assistant who alerts said Diggers to oncoming dangers), Barrel Caskett (Roll’s grandfather)(Veteran Digger) and Data (a Robotic Monkey/MegaMan’s faithful companion).

 

The main antagonists are MegaMan Juno (MegaMan’s evil twin) as well as a family of pirates called the Bonnes which consist of Tron Bonne (Engineer), Teisel Bonne (Leader)(Tron’s big brother), Bon Bonne (a mechanized infant)(Tron’s little brother) and the Servbots (41 indestructible midget robots created by Tron Bonne).

 

The vehicles used by the protagonists in this game are comprised of an explorer’s van, an explorer’s boat and the Flutter (MegaMan’s personal AirShip).

 

The vehicles used by the Bonnes in this game are comprised of Ferdinand (Tron’s OctoRobot), MarlWolf (Teisel’s ultimate digging machine), Balkon Gerat (the Bonne’s mechanized Sea Serpent), Theodore Bruno (the Bonne’s mechanized Giant), Focke-Wulf (the Bonne’s mechanized Dragon) and the Gesellschaft (the Bonne’s Personal WarShip).

 

In conclusion, I found this MegaMan game to be one of the most highly challenging RPGs in the entire history of MegaMan.

History of the Playstation

Image result for sony playstation history

While I’ll always remain a loyal Nintendo fan I am also a big Sony fan as well, and today I am going to tell the history of the Sony Playstation brand. It all dates back to 1986 when Nintendo and Sony had a joint venture. Nintendo had already been producing floppy disk technology to compliment cartridges that they had been planning to use for the Family Disk system. Nintendo had approached Sony about making a CD based add-on for the SNES titled either the Playstation or SNES- Cd. Sony had even planned on developing an SNES compatible console, that would play not only SNES cartridges but CD ROM ones that Sony would develop as well.  

The product nicknamed The PlayStation was set to be announced at The Consumer Electronic Show in 1991. However Nintendo decided to pull out of their deal with Sony and instead decided to partner with Phillips. Nintendo would eventually partner with Philips to develop the Philips CD-I. After the falling out between Sony and Nintendo they had briefly considered partnering with SEGA to develop a stand alone game console, but that never saw the light of day. 

In 1993 Sony began to rework the Playstation to target a new generation of hardware and software. The Playstation was ahead of it’s time with the hardware. For starters the system used Cds instead of cartridges. The system also used full motion video with a lot of its games giving them more of a cinematic feel. The controller for the system was different than any of the other video game controllers. For starters, the controller’s d-pad was different: the d-pad for the PSone used four directional buttons. The buttons on the controller were also different as well. The buttons on the controller were a green triangle, a red circle, a blue cross, and a ping square. The controller also had an L1 R1 button and L2 and R2 buttons.

On December 3rd, 1994 the Playstation launched in Japan. On September 9th, 1995 the Playstation launched in North America, and September 29th, 1995 the Playstation launched in Europe. The Playstation was immediately a success. In North America the system sold 800,000 units within 4 months. The Playstation launched with 10 titles which were Battle Arena Toshinden, Espn Extreme Games, Kileak: The Dna Imperative, Nba Jam Tournament Edition, Power Serve 3d Tennis, Raidne Project, Rayman, Ridge Racer, Street Fighter The movie the game and Total Eclipse Turbo. The launch price for the Playstation was $299 US.
