Anime Review: Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet

Yeah, I got nothing to say as a overly long winded intro that only serves to give a brief description of what is going on in my largely uneventful life. And so I'm here to review an anime that I first heard about from my broth yesterday, and we spent almost all of the day watching all 13 episodes. Good thing too, because otherwise I would have been at a lost as to what to talk about seeing as I haven't beaten Shining Force III Scenario 2 yet. Anyway, on to an anime about a boy, his robot, and a Kevin Costner-less water world.

One Year Anniversary for Crescent Reviews!

That's right, I've maintain this blog for an entire year. And in that year I have written 50 posts of various quality, and garnered 1,815 views, and ABSOLUTELY NO COMMENTS! Please, if there are a few of you who are actually reading this blog and are enjoying my content PLEASE tell me. Leave comments and criticisms. I know this is one big ego project for myself, but please, at least give me the illusion that I'm not talking to a brick wall. Hopefully, this self-gratifying blog will still be here one year from now... and hopefully with a lot more comments.

Oh, and I'm not writing this because I'm lazy and have absolutely nothing planned today, I'm writing this because- OH LOOK A FLEET OF FLYING SAUCERS!

Anime Review: Allison & Lillia

Well, I royally screwed up. I was playing though Shining Force III Scenario 2 and I was looking at guides to make I don't miss any characters, when I realize a few things I did in Scenario 1 was going to screw me over. It turns out, some enemy characters you are not suppose to kill, that is if you want to get them in later Scenarios. And so I had to play through Scenario 1 again just so I can get 100% completion... In Scenario 3... yeah. Anyway, sorry this update is a little late (for the 3 of you who actually read this), I had a parade to walk this afternoon and only recently got back. Without further ado, here is an anime called Allison & Lillia, a series about planes, trains, and couples who everyone around them are forcing to get together.

Game Review: Shining Force III

Strategy RPG; SEGA Saturn; Camelot Software Planning/SEGA; 1998
I hope you all have a good Fourth of July, even if you live in a part of the world where the Fourth of July is just the fourth day of the seventh month of the year and not some celebration of independence and the foundation of new nation. Anyway, a few weeks back I was going through the Nintendo eShop on my 3DS when I saw something that made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside; Shining Force: The Sword of Hajya. I have fond memories playing the SEGA CD version of that game in the form of Shining Force CD, and it's nice to see a Shining Force game that is an ACTUAL SRPG, rather than a Diablo clone (There is nothing wrong with that style of game, it's just that it's not Shining Force). And this lead me to realize that I haven't played Shining Force III yet. So after acquiring the means of playing SFIII (what those means are I will not say) I've played and beaten what is considered the last of the "true" Shining games... Well, at least I beaten one-third of it (I'll get into that later). And so here is my review of Shining Force III.
