Thank You, Seriously!

We hit a milestone recently, 50 subscribers. I could not have done this by myself. I just wanted to make a short post to thank you for taking the time out of your days to read my personal take on random things. I would like to thank Namecheap for registering the domain to me *makes note to review the process later*

I would like to also thank everything that I have reviewed thus far, if you didn’t exist I couldn’t review you regardless of the rating I gave. So thank you for existing. I would also like to thank all who have supported me and I hope you will continue.

That being said, please do tell me what you would like me to review in the future and I will do my best. Now then, I will see you all in the next review! Bye guys! 🙂

Reviewing Steven Universe (Spoilers, Lots of)

I am a Crystal Fan, I don’t know what else to say, to go with this cool beat, to intro this blog today. That’s why I’m just gonna get right to it, and inform you all, ok?

So with that fail behind us, I’m here to talk about Steven Universe, the first cartoon to teach the proper names of Cystals, all while mispronouncing a few!:

Now this could have to do with Rebecca Sugar’s (the show’s writer) accent and that’s perfectly ok. I’ll personally keep pronouncing it the way she does because I can. Now with that out of the way, Steven Universe is a cartoon on Cartoon Network about a half human half mystical holograph somehow with mass projected by a gemstone on his body, Said Gemstone is a Rose Quartz which was his mother’s, Rose Quartz.

Rose was the leader of a group of gems that rebelled against the Homeworld Gems who wanted to take over the earth and use it to drain it’s resources to create more gems for their civilization. Homeworld uses an oppressive Caste system on it’s people to keep them in check, the Diamonds are the monarchs, Quartz are soldiers, Pearls are servants, and several gems are several other things.

After the Gem War which the rebels known as the Crystal Gem fought against Homeworld, only Garnet, Amethyst, Pearl, and Rose seem to survive, Rose later gives up her physical form to give birth to Steven, leaving him in the care of Greg and the remaining Crystal Gems.

The draw of this cartoon is it’s character development. In the first episode Steven was a goofy kid obsessed with “Cookie Cats” and personally I couldn’t stand him, but by the second episode he was pretty tolerable and soon enough he was in my eyes arguably more mature than most adults in my real life.

Like at one point when going on missions to fight Homeworld gems actually puts him in danger, and he sees the effect it has on his friends and family, he tries to distance himself believing they won’t get hurt if they don’t know what’s going on, but his friends and family push through to him to prove they believe in him and want to help him, even if it’s dangerous.

There’s a lot to say about Steven Universe, so I think I’ll end it here. But I’ll happily do more in the future on Steven Universe related topics if there is a demand, or any topic really, so long as it’s reasonable and known that I have the discretion to deny any request or cancel any request for any reason.

But enough about that, tune out of the review to this awesome song and rejoin me next time on Evereview!

The Last Of Us: Left Behind Review (Minor Spoilers)

Hey all! I’m back with a continued review from my last, reviewing the DLC for the game in my previous Review, The Last of Us. This game is the story of Ellie and how she found out she was immune to the virus. She was sneaking out of Military Preparatory School or “Orphanage” as she calls it with her best friend Riley who ran away to join the fireflies and came back to try to rekindle their close bond.

While out they have fun at an abandoned mall until they attract the attention of a mob of Infected by playing loud music. Why you would play loud music when you are literally trained by the military to know that the things that are trying to kill you are attracted by sound, I will never know. But let’s ignore that fact for a second.

The gameplay itself is really creative and relaxed for taking place in the world it does, it’s like being a “Neanderthal teen” in some big abandoned building and not really much in an apocalypse setting. You know, until they play the loud music like they expected that to be safe. But nonetheless, great game.

I do not wish to spoil any of the main content of the game, so this is about as much as I can say. But, you can leave a comment to reccomend what I should review next!

With that said, I give The Last Of Us: Left Behind DLC 5 Knives out of 5 🙂 See ya later!

Reviewing The Last of Us (Spoilers)

The Last of Us is a Zombie Survival game with a story, you start out the Game as Sarah a girl seeming to be between the age of 11 and 14. She is waiting in the living room for her father, Joel, to arrive. He does as he argues with his brother Tommy about a contractor. Sarah gives him a present as it is his birthday,a watch. But she falls asleep only to be woken hours later by her uncle urgently asking for Joel.

This is where we find that there has been an outbreak of a virus that takes over the brain.

But if you Played this game already, you know that. With The Last of Us 2 finally on the calendar I figured it would be a good idea to give my take on the first game, the DLC, and my expectations and theories for the second.

The point of the game after the intro of “Part 1” is that you travel to take a girl named Ellie to the FireFlies, a group of rebels from the government that believe they can find the cure to the virus. The scary thing about the virus is that is based off a real virus that infects insects and Anthropods, but thankfully not humans.

The reason you must escort Ellie is because she is immune to the virus and the FireFlies believe they can use her to make a vaccine.

It’s a surprisingly long and tedious game to actually make it to the FireFlies, but let’s leave what happens after you get there a surprise 🙂

Up till that point though, you get to fight Infected, team up with NPCs, watch them die, read other people’s stories of how they died on random pieces of paper, all adding up to a grand total 15+ hours of game play depending on how much optional side story you want to take in.

It might be long, especially if you can’t aim, but it’s an amazing game with an amazing story and exceptional dynamic characters.

I give it 4.5 out of 5 Watches

This review is running on long, so I shall review the DLC known as The Last of Us: Left Behind on a later date, possibly tomorrow because it would be too perfect, but why is a secret for now 😉

Heroes (Season 1) Review (Spoilers)

Not too long ago, my boyfriend introduced me to a live action TV series called Heroes. (Note: not the reboot series called Heroes Reborn.) But the original.

It starts with a man named Peter Patrelli who dreams he has the ability to fly and believes he can do it in real life as a result. From there he’s obsessed with finding merit in the dream. From there on the level of WTF is just so high you almost can’t guess what a character will go through until you get really good at coming up with the craziest possible plot twist you can think of.

I really don’t want to spoil too much, because oh my goodness this stuff is just too good to just read about. I recommend this series for any lover of plot twists and chaos out there. Be warned though, there is blood, gore, and violence throughout the series so viewer discretion is advised.

I personally am not a fan of blood and gore, but it is well worth sitting through for the content of the show. A rule of thumb is that if you think something will turn out some way you can almost be sure that it won’t be that.

That said, I don’t want to post too much information or images so all I can say is go watch for yourself if any of what I described in this review appeals to you.

I’ll give this show 5 Horn Rimmed Glasses out of 5. (Watch the show, it will all make sense. 😉 )
