Rwby volume 2 episode 7 review

This was good.
Continuing from where ep6 left off, the dance continues as planned. We get two emotional scenes early on. The first is between Jaune and Pyrrah where Pyrrah gives a speech about how shes isolated from everyone because of her celebrity status. This would have been a good scene if Pyrrah's Voice actress actually put some emotion into it. The second is a scene between Jaune and Neptune. Thankfully they both put emotion into their lines for this one.
So after a scene between Jaune and Pyrrah and a dance scene straight out of an mmd video, we see Cinder break into a computer room, in the process revealing her weapons. So her and Ruby fight, but Cinder escapes, having implanted a bug of some kind into the school's system.
I'll say right now that the soundtrack is one of the best parts this episode. I especially liked the JNPR dance song and the piece of background music that played during Cinder's fight with the guards.

Rwby Volume 2 episode 6 review

I had to write this damn review twice....
Anyways this was a good episode. It focused mainly on Team RWBY, specifically on the team's attempt to get Blake to lighten up. But it also revealed some new information on Yang and Ruby's parents. 
We also see more on Jaune's side but its pretty much more of what we got last episode, him trying to woo Weiss while remaining oblivious to Pyrrah's feelings. That makes it different though is the presence of Ren and Nora their actions in the scene add some subtle humor. Its also the first time we see Nora acting serious.
The humor for this episode was mostly subtle, with many of the jokes being things such as Ren reaching for his clothes and Blake being lured by a laser pointer. 
Animation was very good this time. I heard this was the first episode where Monty didnt animate anything. I'm not saying Monty is bad at animating, but I feel like there another reason for it. I also liked the still image sequ

Rwby Volume 2 Episode 5 review

So today's episode started off with two good fight sequences, the rest of the episode introduces the new story arc, which seems to relate to a school dance.
I'll say this right off the bat but I felt like Pyrrah's voice actress wasnt putting alot of emotion into her role this episode. A few of her scenes it felt like she was just reading right off the script. I also saw a part where her ponytail clipped through her shield (I know your not a massive studio Roosterteeth but come on!)
One thing we do see this episode is how Blake is affected by the investigation. Shes focusing solely on it and you can tell shes not getting enough sleep. Not even her team could get her to snap out of it for even a day. 
Humor-wise theres mainly one larger joke this episode, in the form of Jaune trying to serenade Weiss (my inner Jaune/Ruby shipper cringed at this part). Its a decent gag, but its our only one for the episode.
At the end of the episode we see Cinder

I've played enough of Dead Rising 4 to form an opinion on it. 

It's not a bad game, it's fun to play and offers alot to do

But it's not a good dead rising game. 

First off the psychos. I mean "maniacs", god did those get screwed up. The human looter enemies have no character what so ever, even the guys in dead rising 2 had an introductory cutscene. 

And the maniac bosses are just awful, Yeah they responded to criticism to the Dead rising 3 psychos (many of whom were too over the top in my opinion) but these psychos have virtually no real personalities. in the other dead rising games we get a cutscene before each psycho telling us who they are, what they do, and let us in on their personality. we never get to have that pre-battle interaction with the maniacs here, the maniac bosses are just the regular human enemies with more health wielding a combo weapon. The closest I've seen to a developed psycho is a pirate named captain black friday, who ranged about murder and discounts as I raided his hip but thats about it. I saw in an interview that the developers wanted the maniacs to feel like they belonged in the world, but then the first maniac I encounter is an evil santa who literally teleports in with an army of elves. That doesnt fit into the dr universe at all. 

Then theres frank, Frank has never been my favorite dead rising protagonist but he had his moments, especially in Off The Record here he's a washed up has-been who put on  weight. But in DR4 he's just an asshole. Frank was supposed to be an every-man kind of guy that the player can identify with, but i didn't identify with half of frank's decisions, or the sense of humor the writers gave him. Only 5% of his jokes and quips were actually funny. 

Remember how in DR3 you could only make combo weapons if you had the blueprints, removing the experimental feel of discovering a new combo weapon in dr2? That shits back. But they got rid of the bottomless weapon locker that made you too overpowered because you could withdraw twenty bomb sledgehammers and never need to scavage for weapons. 

Storywise DR4 is meh but storytelling was never Dead Rising's strong suit, it was more about the mystery in the first two games and there is a pretty decent mystery in Dr4. Theres also this tone problem, wherethe game can't decide if it want to be serious with humorous undertones (dr2 style) or serious and funny at the same time, to the point of slipping jokes into awkward places. 

New brad: Look at this picture from the outbreak

Frank: Thats a selfie.

New brad: Oh.... How kooky of me. He he also theres a shit ton of body bags there. How morbid.

Character-wise this game is seriously lacking, partially because of the lack of psychos. In terms of friendly npcs you have a small roster of characters who spent most of my current playthrough somewhere I couldn't access. Where is new brad? He just disappears after the mall. Then theres a podcaster who is the stacey/Rohnda of this game, sending you tips about the awful psycho battles. The survivor npcs are randomly generated people who once you save will drop a combo weapon before running off to the nearby shelter. Its good I don't have to escort them but put into these characters, why can't the survivors be more like the obama look-alike from Dr2, who had a personality and an active role in cutscenes despite being a minor character. 

Maybe this is why they remastered the other dead rising games, to distract us from the flaws of Dead Rising 4, the 2nd worst dead rising game but still better than Dead Rising 3 in a number of aspects. 

Fatfan was playing assassins creed 3 as Mars laid dead on the floor. 

Fatfan: I really dont like this. 

Dr-j33 barges out of his room covered in dust. 

Dr-J33: NOW SEE HERE!

fatfan: Doc you're alive!?

dr-J33: Yeah i just had shit connection, a lack of a drive to make anything here, and a busy college schedule. Also I've been chained to my bed playing dungeons and dragons for the past 6 months

fatfan: Well it's good to see that you're not dead like mars. 

Mars: I'm not dead I'm just sleeping. 

Dr-J33: Well I wonder what exciting adventure we'll have today, now that i can visit this site without it crashing. 

The ghost of Tom Jones kicks down the door. 

Tom: IM GOING TO PLAY WHATS NEW PUSSY CAT TEN TIMES IN A ROW!


Dr-J33: Meh.
Let me say something that's almost six months overdue.

god eater 2 wasn't that good. 

The audio is a mess and the plot made no sense from where I'm at. 

I got Watchdogs 2 launch week alongside pokemon sun and Killing floor 2 but I never got around to putting up my thoughts on the game. But since my internet has stabilized, I can share my thoughts at last. 

It's really good. Like ten times better than the first game. 

>No more vehicle tailing missions
>NO MORE VEHICLE TAILING MISSIONS
>Theres a trans character who is a city councilwoman and a serious character, not played for jokes. 
>Wrench is my spirit animal 
>No seriously he's great, him and Marcus talk about pop culture by name, including a talk about alien vs predator.
>Good level design. 
>The more episodic mission format works well with the game rather than splitting the game into acts. Also the story is good this time around.
>You can pet almost every dog in the game. 
>they took out the slow motion button but it's not really necessary. 
>Josh, the most accurate portrayal of an autistic character in a video game. 
>Did I mention that there are none of those horrible car tailing missions? 

So yeah, Watchdogs 2 is a goty contender for me, so i'd say give it a shot. 
Dr-J33: Hey guys I-

Fat fan: You're Alive!?

Dr-J33: Yeah I haven't posted any new journals in awhile because MY TABLET EXPLODES EVERY FIVE MINUTES NOW! SO USING THIS SITE IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE!

Fat fan: Sounds rough.

Dr-J33: it is. But on the bright side I'm geared up for Halloween.
