Bleach Recaps News

Hey guys, I've decided that since my sister is INCREDIBLY LAZY, I'll just do every recap after all, starting next week. She can keep doing it if she wants, but it would probably be once every season, so... yeah. HBM, signing out.


Possible Delays in Schedule

Hey guys. Thanks to the 3DS Ambassador thing finally giving me the GBA games, and Christmas, Updates other than the Bleach Recaps may be scarce. Sorry.


Bleach Recaps Ep. 234: Holy Ripoff, Batman!

Sorry my sister couldn't get last week's episode up, guys. We didn't get the full episode recorded for some reason, and she refuses to watch stuff in larts on Youtube. Yeah, I just had to type that. To summarize, Muramasa took Zangetsu out of Ichigo, who went Hollow again. Now onto the recap.


Little Bleach Update

I know these days are over. Shut up.
Okay guys, in my last post, I said I'd prefer if I could take turns reviewing episodes with someone, and my sister, Carlchang, decided she would. Starting this weekend, she's reviewing every other episode at her blog, Chang's Palace. Hopefully, she won't be a fucking trainwreck with this. Just wanted to let you know. HBM, signing out.

EDIT: This week's episode may not be put up, and if it is, it may be later in the week.


HBM Reviews: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword

"This is a tale that you humans have told for many ages,
generation to generation..."
Okay, before I begin, let me just say that this is the best fucking game that's come out all year! At least, the best game I got that came out this year, but still! Skyward Sword, definitely a must have!

Funny story, even if I had internet last week, I still wouldn't have been able to recap the newest episode f of Bleach, thanks to the awesomeness that is this game! And now I start the review!

Bleach Recaps Ep. 232: A Bad Romance

Hey there, guys. Sorry I couldn't update last week. It was kind of busy, what with Thanksgiving, Skyward Sword, and my INTERNET FAILING ON ME. But now I'm back... for now.

I'm gonna be honest; I can't really review Ep. 231 because I forgot about it completely after watching it. Of course Skyward Sword may have contributed to that, but it was kind of a forgettable episode. I expect you to remember what happened for episodes I don't review.*


Schedule Delay

Hey everyone. I'm sorry to say that my internet is down (I'm posting this from school), so I won't be able to post anything until we get a new internet router. Unfortunately, this means there will be no Bleach recaps until then, and the next recap I'll do will be the next episode after I get a new router. Also, I recently got Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, so once my internet is back, I'll be reviewing that ASAP.

HBM, signing out!


Bleach Recaps Ep. 230: The Filler Begins

It's finally happened, people. Last night started what is going to be about 7 to 9 months' worth of filler in my favorite show of all time, Bleach. Thankfully, this filler is regarded to be the best filler the show has had so far, so we shouldn't have to be tying ourselves down so we don't try rushing to our nice, sharp knives in the kitchen, hoping for a swift, clean, painless end to tortures like the Bount Arc. Oh yeah, I'm going to assume that since you're reading this, you have knowledge of what's happened in the English version up to bow, maybe further knowledge. I'm not explaining anything for you guys. Now onto the recap!


Bleach Recaps

Just a few of the billions of characters of this show
Hello, people of the internet! I have decided that, starting when the Zanpakuto Filler Arc starts next month in Bleach, I will start giving weekly recaps of each episode. If you're wondering why I'm doing this now of all times, BlueHighwind (whose blog you can read here.) used to recap Bleach (starting with the Amagai arc), but he inexplicably stopped about a month ago, and I'm going to have to assume that he's done with all that. That is why I'm starting these recaps. And if you're a reader of Blue's blog, I'm going to do things a bit differently (most notably, making sure I have the recaps up by Tuesday Morning of the week they come out).

That's all for now! HBM, signing off!

HBM Reviews: Bleach: Soul Resurreccion

"Ignite the battle against the Arrancars!"
It's about fucking time I got this game! I had to wait 2 and a half agonizing months to get this game after it came out! And you know why?! Because we took maybe a week long vacation to Cape May and right when we get back? "DURR, WE'RE BEHIND ON TAXES FOR 9 BLLION YEARS. NO PREORDERIN' NUFFIN' FOR ANYBODY!" Fuck you, government.

Anyway, onto the stuff about the game and not the 983,294th circle of hell known as tax collecting: Bleach: Soul Resurreccion is the first Bleach game to be localized outside of Japan since Bleach: the 3rd Phantom and it's the first Bleach game for the PS3, so obviously, expectations WILL be high for this game. Onto the review now!


HBM Reviews: Cartoon Network: Punch Time Explosion (3DS)

This should be awesome... right...?

It's about time I got my ass in gear to review this...

Okay, so this is one of the first games I got for my 3DS... which seriously needs more games. Seriously Square, hurry the fuck up and release KH3D and Theatrythtm: Final Fantasy*! Well... here goes.




Sorry I haven't updated in the past... month I think. 3DS has kept me occupied and my laptop got taken by the school till September because we can't keep it with us until graduation for some reason... Also, I've been demotivated lately. So I won't be updating much until I get my laptop back. I can promise at least 1 update until then, and it'll be a review of that one Cartoon Network game. Sorry guys.

Okay, peace out.


Thoughts on the 3DS

'Sup guys.

Okay, so today, I'm gonna tell you my thoughts about the 3DS, which I got last week thanks to the $500 I got last weekend.
So, it's pretty awesome. i like the AR Games and new stuff on the camera and sound things, but my favorite things so far are the Mii Maker and Streetpass. Too bad the only 'being' I know that HAS a 3DS is my disgusting 'sister'.


HBM Reviews: Mortal Kombat

DEAR. FUCKING. LORD. I'm so unmotivated to do this since I just got the 3DS... whatever, I'll just get it over with... AHEM...

Alright, so this is probably the best PS3 game of 2011. Why? I'll tell you why. 'Cuz if I don't tell you why, you won't know why...

Okay, this is gonna be really half-assed, so sorry if you're disappointed or I seem unenthusiastic, but read the thing above the pic...

If you read my Punch-Out review, you should know my rules by now for these things: Plot, characters, gameplay, music, extras, overall rating. Now let's do this thing!



Hey guys! Sorry I haven't updated in a few weeks, but I was on vacation. Plus, I was engrossed by MK9 and FFIV:CC! Too bad Shao Khan made me break my PS3 controller. Fuckin' asshole. >_>

Okay, so since it's been awhile and there's more Dissidia 012 DLC, might as well list it! First up is the FFI music pack, which includes Battle, Airship, Castle Cornelia, Menu Screen, and Chaos Shrine. The Emperor and Onion Knight have gotten their 4th costumes, which are Emperor of Heaven and the Super Deformed artwork respectively. II and III have gotten music packs too. II has Magician's Tower, Temptation of the Princess, and Dead Music. III has The Boundless Ocean, Good Ol' Fellows, and Forbidden Land. FFX and FFXII have gotten music packs as well.

Well, before I sign off, let me give some semi-late news: OSAMA BIN LADEN IS DEAD!!!

USA! USA! HBM, signing off! USA! USA!


Dissidia: DLC!!!

Hey Head-Bodites. Sorry for the past couple weeks, I wasn't feeling up to updating. But now that my creative juices are flowing again, I think it's time to go back to my FAVORITE game... DISSIDIA 012!!

There's been quite a bit of DLC, or Downloadable Content, released in recent weeks for the game, and since I have nothing better to review or talk about, I'll just talk about the DLC.

The first bit of Downloadables came for the preorders of the game. Preordering from Gamestop got you Cloud's Kingdom Hearts outfit, while ordering from Amazon got you Tifa's Amano costume. Also, if you preordered The 3rd Birthday and/or Final Fantasy IV: Complete Collection, you'll get Lightning's Aya Brea Costume and/or Cecil's sprite costume, respectively.


Dissidia 012: My Thoughts

Hey there, my loyal Head-Bodites. Sorry I couldn't review Dissidia 012 on Saturday. I still haven't beat Story 000 and unlocked Feral Chaos, plus I was so obsessed with getting everyone past Lv. 70 before I started the story! Well, my PSP charger is broke, and to help cope with that, I'm going to give a paragraph or two of my thoughts on the game.

My expectations were met. Just barely, but still, they were met. All the newcomers are fun to play with (especially GILGAMESH~!!) and the improvements made to the returning cast are great! The new music certainly doesn't disappoint, but I find the amount of new stages... lacking. And, my god, I love playing with these new Alternate costumes (especially Cloud's)! Can't wait for all the other DLC costumes to come out!


Quick Apology

Hey Head Bodites. Sorry for last week. I wasn't feeling motivated to update. I'm just updating to say this and that Saturday, I'll give my thoughts on Dissidia 012, since I have to get it today because I wanted the friggin' preorder bonus! >_>

Well, HBM, Signing off.


Pokemon: Black and White Quickie

What's up, Head-Bodites? You keep it real. You always do.

Well, I got Pokemon Black, and I've got to say, I'm impressed. Compared to the 4th generation games(other than the G2 remakes) this is GREAT! Unfortunately, I haven't really gotten into it that much, so I haven't even beaten the 3rd gym yet. Of course this is thanks to hype from Dissidia 012, Mortal Kombat, and Final Fantasy IV: Complete Collection.

Well, I can't review Black for a few months, at least. Next week, I talk about the demo for MK, and the English version of Dissidia 012 Prologus. HBM, signing out!


Dissidia 012 Is Out!

Well, those lucky Japs got it, Head-Bodites. Dissidia 012 came out for them. And with it, some news!

First up, the 'new' character: Desperado Chaos!

Holy shit, that is so fucking metal!
Well, he's broken. His gameplay has shown amazing attacks, and an even more amazing EX Burst! Unfortunately, his BRV drains constantly, but only a little bit per .6 seconds or so. New main, here we come!


HBM Reviews: Punch-Out!!

"Keep it clean and come out boxing!"
Hey, Head-Bodites. Guess what? I've been replaying this game recently (had it since it came out) and realized I need to give it a little review. Mostly, I'm just feeling nostalgic with this game, despite this being my first Punch-Out game (I'm only 15, y'know), so let's get this thing rolling.

But first, a few things. I'm doing my reviews in a certain way. First, I go through the plot, then the characters, gameplay, music, and extras. Each of those gets a rating out of 10. I then give an overview and a rating out of 10 based on everything else. Simple, right? Okay, let's roll!


Square, Y U NO?

Well, we're nearing the end, Head-Bodites. Dissidia 012 is gonna come out in Japan in a couple weeks, and then Pokemon Black/White comes out a few days after, so I have something to occupy me until the 22nd when Dissidia 012 comes out here in the U.S. I'm most definitely getting the pre-order bonus from Gamestop, thank you very much.

Okay, today was... fairly interesting when it came to new info. First up, Prishe's 3rd outfit puts her in a bikini. As we all know, bikinis are the clothing of the gods, so I must use this. But that's nothing compared to GILGAMESH!


GILGAMESH & Noob Saibot

Well, Head-Bodites, the fateful day has passed us by. Gilgamesh has finally been officially confirmed!

*insert angelic choir here*


A Little Dissidia Info + Apologies

Hey Head-Bodites, I'm back. Sorry for the absence, I had mid-term exams and was preoccupied with... other unimportant things.

First up, new Dissidia info! Of course, it's barely anything because Prishe and Gilgamesh were only JUST revealed and we only have 1 stage to go. This is, thankfully, info on the ENGLISH version!. Basically everyone from the first Dissidia has the same voices. Ali Hillis is returning as Lightning (need some Hot Sauce for some more spiciness?), I guess Liam O'Brien (y'know, Gaara.) is returning as Kain, Hedy Buress is returning as Yuna (why not Auron?! SERIOUSLY?!), Vaan's voice got deeper (wait, so he finally grew a pair?) and Laguna's voice is simply amazing, judging from the new vids on the English site. Also, we get Dissidia 012 a full 3 FUCKING WEEKS after Japan. hey, at least we don't have to wait ANOTHER FUCKING YEAR like with the first Dissidia.


The Conference is Over...

Well, the Square Enix conference over in Japan is over, Head-Bodites. It wasn't that disappointing, thanks to some of the new information.

First off, Final Fantasy Agito XIII has been renamed Final Fantasy Type-0 and is coming out around Fall. Also, a new trailer for Versus XIII was shown and it's coming out Winter. Speaking of Winter, Final Fantasy XIII-2 was recently announced and is coming out winter. Seriously Square? You suck at multitasking! Working on the Kingdom Hearts series along with Versus XIII, Type-0, Dissidia 012, FFXIV and FFXV?! Yeah, good luck releasing all that any time soon.

Oh yeah, the Dissidia news. Well, Dissidia Duodecim Prologus, the demo of Dissidia 012, was released on Japanese PSN recently, so it must be available sometime soon internationally. The bonus you get for downloading it is having Aerith Gainsborough from FFVII an Assist character in Dissidia 012. Now onto the new costumes.

Thanks to the demo, we learned just about every new costume so far. So that this post isn't too huge, I'll just list the new ones: Warrior of Light got the NES Fighter appearance, Garland got a demon form the Amano picture "Demon in the Clouds," Firion got another Amano appearance, Emperor got his appearance in the intro to Final Fantasy Origins, Kain got the Hooded Man appearance, Bartz got his Freelancer appearance, ExDeath got Neo ExDeath, Tifa got her Cowgirl outfit, Laguna got his President outfit, Zidane got his stolen Pluto Knights outift, Kuja got a black-and-white color swap, Yuna got her wedding dress and Amano appearance, Shantotto got some scholar outfit, Vaan got his FFAT2 outfit, and Lightning got some kind of military uniform.

Now onto the two new characters!

Final Fantasy XI: Prishe
Where's Eald'narche?! GODDAMMIT, SQUARE!
So we got another Cosmos rep for FFXI. That's just fuckin' retarded! Where's the villain?! Who will Shantotto and this little loli oppose?! Okay, I don't know much about Prishe here, but I know that she curses a lot, so she's leaning toward my positive side. She shows up towards the end of trailer talking to someone who many believe to either be Cid Raines or WoL's 3rd costume. Apparently she's a White Mage/Monk, so she may be somewhat intersting to play as.

After this little disappointment, you'd think the next reveal would be disappointing too, right? WELL, YOU'RE DEAD WRONG, MOTHAFUCKA!



YAY, she's not a Gunner!
IT'S ABOUT FUCKING TIME, HEAD-BODITES! Yuna got officially revealed by magazine earlier today to be in Dissidia 012. All that's currently known is that she's a Summoner(YES!!!*) who attacks using Aeons, like Shiva and FUCKING BAHAMUT, BITCHES! Also, this has been common knowledge for a while, but every newcomer revealed from now on will be from a game from the SNES era at least. So GILGAMESH still has a chance! YAY! I don't really have any more info at the moment, but this post will be edited by the end of the week with more info. Speaking of, at the end of the week is my first HBM Review. Here's HeadBodyMaster, signing off!


My Least Favorite Final Fantasy Characters

Greetings, Head-Bodites! It's been about a week since we've talked like this! I bet you want to know how my New Year's going.* Well, that has to wait. For now, I'm putting  my least favorite Final Fantasy characters. Y'know, since I put my most favorite. And don't worry, it'll all be one post.
