MLP FIM Season 3 Episode 13 reviewSo...I want to take a moment today to talk about Episode 13 of Season 3 of MLP. I went into the episode with a lot of anticipation, and for that, I feel I may have been hurt a bit. Had I been expecting nothing, I'm sure I would have liked the episode better. But, before I say whether I liked the episode or not, let's talk about the good things the episode did, and the bad things the episode did.MusicThe music was amazing. I loved every single song in the episode, and during the entire thing, I wished I had known the lyrics to sing along. I always love the music in the series, and I'm always happy to see them add more songs. However, this was also the episodes biggest flaw. The episode reminds me a lot of Episode 1 of Gen 1. Before the movie came out (which started the series) they made two pilot episodes. Both episodes were fantastic, and the story in each episode was great. The problem was, the entire story was told IN SONG.The problem with song is that I enjoy hearing the song. Wh
Looking Back: Zelda 2 - The Adventure of LinkToday, I'd like to take you back, back into the past. In the days when Legend of Zelda still had no formula. Back in the days where 8-bit was considered "high definition". Today, I'll be talking about the second Legend of Zelda game and why, despite its flaws, its one of my favorite games.Now right off the bat, I bet a lot of you will think "Sureen...how the HELL can you like Zelda 2? Look at its flaws!" Yes, it has a lot of flaws, ones I'll be covering in this rant. But first, let's take a look at what makes this game not only good, but actually quite unique.The first thing is the combat system. In all my days of playing Legend of Zelda games, I've found that the one thing that keeps changing, and is becoming steadily more important in every game, is the mechanic of the sword. In fact, I used to make a statement back before Skyward Sword came out (when they had announced it was using the Wii motion plus controls). I said "Skyward Sword will be like Zelda 2: reliant on you making the
LoZ - TP - C3Chapter 3: A Taste of BloodI hate bugs. I really do. Creepy little pests. But I'm kind of getting ahead of myself. I'll get to the bugs later. Anyway, when I agreed to Midna's terms, annoying as they were, she told me that she would need a sword and a shield. I didn't really understand how someone who barely reaches up to my thigh in my human form would be able to use either of those things, but I really couldn't argue. Not that she would've been able to understand my argument, but still. I figured that if I ever regained my human form, I would be able to use the sword and shield while searching for my friends.I made my way back to Ordon Village, running down the path until I saw someone. It was difficult to discern who it was in the darkness, but I gave up on trying to recognize the "person" when I realized that they had horns and glowing orange eyes. I quietly crept closer to the obvious monster, trying to get a better look. I easily remembered the ragged outfit and dark green skin
Legend of Zelda - GanondorfSo, I've been enjoying posting these rants as of late. Maybe I should make a blog or something? Or maybe I should post these as deviations? CAN you post rants as deviations? I dunno... Tell me what you think in the comments!So, today's rant: The Legend of Zelda! Or rather, this is a rant mostly about Ganondorf. The rant got started when someone asked the question "How did Ganondorf not know that either Shiek or Tetra were Zelda, even though he has the Triforce of Power?"The answer to the question at hand is super simple actually. Remember, the Triforce is three things: Power, Wisdom, and Courage. I'm going to start this rant by pointing to the statement that Zelda makes. She says something like "If you don't have a balance of the three, the Triforce splits and you are left with what fits you best." Now, the fact that Ganondorf obtained the Triforce of Power means that Power fits him the best. That also means he's strong in Power, but lacks in Wisdom and Courage. This can actually be
Looking Back: The Original Legend of ZeldaSo, how many people have played the very first Legend of Zelda? Probably not many of you. Oh well! I wanted to go ahead and use this as a test of the "editorial" section, to be sure I can place my rants here, so here we go, my rant on Zelda 1.In the story of the game (which, of course, you find in the manual instead of the game), we find that Princess Zelda has been kidnapped by the evil Ganon. Ganon, of course, is the Demon King. This was back before the whole timeline and everything had been invented, so it was probably meant to just be a standalone game, which is fine. Well, we find that he captured Princess Zelda and stole the Triforce of Power.He tried to steal the Triforce of Wisdom as well, but Zelda split it into eight pieces and sent it around the land. We then meet our hero, Link, hailing from another land. He comes into Hyrule and saves Impa, who is under attack by monsters. She tells Link about what is going on, and Link starts his quest.Now, I'd like to refer back to my
