July Video Game Challenge Progress Report: Spec Ops – The Line

Challenges get easier to complete when you play a game so engaging in story and character that it’s impossible to want to put the controller down. I’ve had the pleasure of having this wonderful gaming experience when I played Spec Ops: The Line for July. The final week of the month means it’s time to find out how I did!

Flower Child: Flower Crowns As A Fashion Hair Piece

When it comes to getting ready and going out for the day, I’m the type of person who prefers to put her hair up all the time. I never really like leaving my hair loose unless it’s being styled for special occasions. Putting my hair up always gives me the opportunity to do something fun and different with it. Being a fan of flower accessories, as I have mentioned in an older post about them, it’s a pretty touch to brighten up an otherwise mundane hairstyle. Toss in a flower crown as an upgrade to the flower accessory for your hair and you usher in a new fashion statement for your hairstyle.

Sailor Moon Crystal: First Impressions About The First Episode

The month of July has arrived which means the new anime reboot of Sailor Moon, Sailor Moon Crystal, has also made its debut online over the Fourth of July weekend. The moment you watch the first few minutes of the opening sequence and have been a long time fan of Sailor Moon, you know this isn’t going to be your old school ’90s Sailor Moon anime you grew up with.

Video Game Challenge For July: Game Number Four Revealed

I know what you’re thinking. You must be saying to yourself, “Hold on. Did she write game number four on the title of this post? Didn’t last month’s challenge count as game number four?” Yes and no. True, it’s the fourth game I played in this series of challenges I’m doing. However, since it’s a repeat on a game I tried to tackle for the first time and failed, then no. It doesn’t really count. July’s video game pick is something I’m approaching a bit differently this time around.

June Video Game Challenge Progress Report: Saints Row 2 (Redux Game Edition)

A little determination or stubbornness can go a long way to completing your desired goal. It’s the final day of June and with it comes my video game challenge progress report for the month. The results of my challenge has been both surprising and mostly satisfying. It’s also different from the past few challenges I have implemented on myself.

Mellow Yellow: Summer’s It Color

The official start of summer has kicked off this past weekend and with it comes long days and plenty of sunshine. People are walking around showing a little more skin and the drab colors of winter are replaced with warmer and brighter ones. Among the popular colors I’ve been noticing both men and women sporting (at least on the streets of New York City) is the color yellow.

Sailor Moon Crystal Trailer: New Anime, New Look

A few weeks ago, an official trailer for next month’s Sailor Moon anime reboot, Sailor Moon Crystal, debuted online. To say that the studio behind this new anime is pulling all the stops to make a faithful adaptation to Naoko Takeuchi’s original manga series would be an understatement. Clearly, there’s a move to set this newer anime of the beloved series apart from its classic ’90s counterpart.

Comic Book Review: Wynter Issues 1 & 2

Being an avid manga reader for the mostly shojo manga genre, I’d say I’m really well acquainted with the style and types of stories that come out of it. I’ll admit that I’ve read more manga than regular comics and graphic novels you see being published from the likes of Marvel or DC. When review copies for a recently published indie digital comic book series entitled Wynter found its way into my inbox last month, I’d say this was a great opportunity to see what other stories and great art I may be missing out on by limiting my reading to just manga.

Video Game Challenge For June: Game Redux

It was stated in my last post that I’ll be doing something a little different with June’s video game pick. After failing two challenges in a row, something had to be done. I’m not a quitter by nature and I refuse to accept failure. With that being said, I’m bringing back one of the games I failed to finish.

May Video Game Challenge Progress Report: Final Fantasy IV

Determination, motivation, and effort will almost always propel you forward to finish any task at hand. Even plain stubbornness and a no quit attitude might be enough. I, however, discovered that even if you do set a rather simple goal for yourself, there will be times when you can’t predict the obstacles in your path no matter how prepared you think you are. As the Memorial Day weekend winds down, the month is also close to an end and it’s time to report my progress for this month’s game challenge.
