Was not aware that Splatoon had a manga, and I had no idea that VIZ Media would be the one to publish it once I found out that it did!  While the game is not something I was interested in and the manga seemed to also creep into that category, I am willing to give it an honest go.

I have no idea how the game is played or the main concept behind Splatoon.  Hopefully the manga will do a good job of building a world I find interesting while simultaneously teaching a neophyte the ins and outs of how things work in this ink-splattered manga.

The "Canada Cup incident" was an ordeal that spread like wildfire within the Fighting Games Community.  The entire ordeal garnered so much attention that even websites that do not normally cover what is happening within the FGC had something to say.  With so much blame being thrown away and a punishment as harsh as a lifetime ban from this particular tournament, I decided I wanted to see the other side to the story and learn more about one of the individuals involved.

Evolution is the largest and most prestigious fighting game tournament in the world.  People from many different countries travel to Las Vegas, Nevada every single year in order to put their skills against the very best in the world... to be crowned the very best in the world!

Mr. Wizard is the person who organizes this, and he sent out a tweet asking for input on what players think should be the 7 games that are represented in this year's Evo headliners.  While there are generally a ton of side tournaments (so most games are actually included in Evo), everyone wants to see their favorite game make it to "Grand Finals Day" and their community represented for tens of thousand of players to see.

Dante is one of the returning veteran characters from Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds and Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.  Though besides his appearance in the previous iteration of the game, most know him from his own game series "Devil May Cry".

Many wanted him within the game and displayed hype when he was shown battling Deadpool in the extended E3 trailer for MvC3.  Even more hype was given when he was shown to have more moves than ANYONE else in the entire game, meaning that his diversity was going to be insane.  People were nearly bursting at the seems as early combo videos from players like Isadelica showed off his potential, but unfortunately this did not keep people using Dante deep into the game's life.

Despite Dante having answers for everything because of his toolset, as well as one of the most useful assists in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3; many decided to use his twin brother, Vergil, in lieu of him because he was easier to use.  Vergil could cancel his stinger without first having to "bold cancel", his "sword loop" is vastly easier to perform than Dante's "clay pigeon" loop, and he was an absolute monster in X-Factor level 3 who could potentially destroy an entire team by himself while Dante used most of his X-Factor time to kill a single character because of his moves' length.  However, this has changed in Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite.

I open up my business e-mail one day and I receive a review code for a game I had actually never heard of, "School Girl/Zombie Hunter".  I always like to do my best to review whatever I am entrusted with, so I decide to go ahead and boot up the game.

Cool introduction, decent premises for the game... I mean its got school girls and zombies.  Despite all of that, I can never make heads or tails of a game until I actually play it through its entirety and see what it has to offer; this game is no different.

And to top off this amazing year, we've got something special cooked up.

Amalee, also known as "LeeandLie", is a professional singer who makes english adaptations to anime and video game songs.  I discovered her by searching through youtube one day after listening to a few covers; namely I wanted to see if anyone did consistently good covers besides having only one or two good ones.

I was surprised completely by the quality of her work; sound of production, voice, and how closely the adaptation fit without altering the core of the song (she even capitalizes words in her follow-along lyrics to show words or phrases she takes directly from the Japanese song itself).  I found myself listening to her more and more while I was working on various things or just browsing the internet, so I thought I would spread the love around!

It is very common within the Dragon Ball franchise for its leading man, Son Goku, to rise to any new challenge that seems insurmountable at his current level.  Though he grows strong through sheer determination and training, often he receives a boon in the way of a new transformation that multiplies his power.  It was "Super Saiyan" against Frieza, "Super Saiyan 2" against Majin Vegeta, "Super Saiyan 3" against Kid Buu, etc.  We even saw him go "Super Saiyan God" in Battle of Gods in order to go up against Beerus the Destroyer (Universe 7's God of Destruction).  This is nowhere near uncommon, and we usually see another advance of the "Super Saiyan" form... until now.
