We're not dead, but we're getting there. In case you're wondering, much of our efforts have been spent on getting the Dragon's Anime Youtube channel populated with all our movies from previous years. We didn't realize how daunting a task this was until we started, and then realized we had a ton of videos we've shot over the years, and we were going to need to reencode them all with modern hardware, filters, and in HD where possible. Still, we're chugging away, as you can see from the shear amount we've got so far. Once the main events are done, I'll be able to work on the snippets of events we have here and there as well. Gensao, for example, has provided me with loads of little moments in time that are a real treat to watch, and I'll share them with you at earliest opportunity.
In the mean time, we have a new review for the game Transformers: Fall of Cybertron. In a nutshell, if you liked the first one, or just like good third person shooters...you'll love this.
From each and every one of us here at Dragon's Anime we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Let's all hope it continues to be such for the foreseeable future.
The civil war has gone badly for both sides of the conflict on Cybertron. Their planetary core has shut down, and with it, the life giving energon it produced. Soon their world will be a barren husk, devoid of any ability to sustain life, fit only for those creatures that scavenge from the dead, and perhaps soon, not even them. Having evacuated as many of the Autobots and non aligned as he could, Optimus Prime turns his attention to the final transport, The Ark, which will take the bulk of the Autobot army to the stars in search of a new home. The Slagmaker himself, Megatron, leader of the Decepticons, however, has no intention of letting them escape his wrath, though he too knows that Cybertron's days are numbered.
To interrupt your current bout of procrastination I bring this review to you after suffering the verbal lashings of my partner in crime who knows how much I was looking forward to and enjoyed this game. So after putting down Dragon Quest 9, I give to you a review of the game I'm really talking about: Transformers: War for Cybertron.
To be blunt, this is damn near everything a fan of the series could ask for. Never ask a fan of Transformers everything they'd want, because they invariably want more. Since it's a broken fanbase, there'll never be any real consensus on that. The best you can do is give the greatest number the most often requested items on a list, and in this, the game does not disappoint. But why am I rambling here, when you can just click that link and check out the review. I now return you to your regularly scheduled bout of putting off to next week what you can do right this second.
Megatron has lit the fires of rebellion within the city state of Kaon. In the ensuing conflict he killed Sentinel Prime in one on one combat thus starting the great Cybertronian Civil War which has ravaged the world for uncounted millenia. Now, however, Megatron thinks he's found a source of power that will enable him to tip the balance of power in the war permanently into his favor. Though Megatron may have killed or rendered ineffective every other commander of the Autobot forces, the field commander Optimus will not quietly wait for slavery or death to come for him and his fellow Autobots, no matter the cost.
