Oh! Good! You've returned. That didn't take long. Anyway, we left off last week by foreshadowing that the dreams that Luigi has in Mario and Luigi: Dream Team hold a deeper and darker meaning to them.
For anyone who has played the game knows that the Dream's Deep is a pretty messed up place! I mean, when you're going through this part of the game, (and spoiler: you do it twice) you can hear Luigi's deepest thoughts and intentions. But there is one thing that Luigi says that stands out to all of us
"I can help! Take me with you! I'm not clumsy!" are a few recurring ones, but the most shocking one is
DON'T LEAVE ME!
Don't leave me. It's the number one thing he says in every area of this game! When you're going through the real world, he says it when you battle in the dream world. HE EVEN SAYS IT WHEN HE'S TURNING INTO A FREAKING TITAN.
If you don't get it now, then allow me to explain. Mario has many games out, 28 or 29 in total, if you count the Mario Kart series and every off series Mario game. Now, with that in mind, Luigi on the other hand has only 3 games that I know of. Luigi's Mansion, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, and Mario was missing. And In all three games, Luigi has to save Mario every time, who, in return, doesn't give any form of thanks or any thing else. He just jumps away to his next game!
Pretty much, we get inside Luigi's head.
For every game that he's in with Mario, he's always the backseat driver. He never really gets in on the action. Even in Mario Kart.
t's actually pretty sad really. I mean, he's probably one of the strongest characters in the Mario Universe. In the Mario and Luigi series games, Luigi is always stronger than Mario in all statistics. He has the most HP and the best attacks.
Not to mention that he has a higher jump and has some badass stealth. I mean, I can even BEGIN to count the amount of times Luigi has gotten into enemy places without detection.
There's also his technological advantage that he has over Mario. With the many machines at his disposal, Luigi is an Armada in waiting. Plus, Mario's biggest enemy, The Boos they're called, are afraid of Luigi, see that he's taken down the King Boo many times.
I guess that wraps up this theory quite nicely!
I agree. See you all next week for the next game theory. This is Gatsby, wishing you all a fine afternoon.
This is BlackStar, logging off.
And this is Axum. Peace Mother F**kers!
What is up people! BlackStar her. Welcome to the Sunday THINGS OF THE WEEK! Wow! It has been such a long time since I have done this. I guess I've been a bit busy. Anyway, how is everyone today? I'm doing this just before I head out for my day out on the town! But first, let me explain what is happening. Throughout last week, I have handpicked one item for each of the four categories below. Just stay tuned and you'll see. So, let's get started!
PICTURE OF THE WEEK!
VIDEO OF THE WEEK!
THIS! IS! ELSA!
SONG OF THE WEEK!
PERSON OF THE WEEK!
Well, that's all for now people! I have to get to church before I get yelled at. This is BlackStar, logging off!
What is up people! BlackStar here and to your left, you'll see what the inside of a robot bear looks like. Yeah. Sorry! XD I'm up pretty early because MOTHER woke me up for something that I may or may not be doing today. On our calender, today is marked as "World Wide Day Of Play." I don't even know what that is, much less where it is, but mother makes it sound fun. I'll do a follow up blog when I get back. But until then! This is BlackStar, logging off!
Warning: The anime that is undergoing review deals with mild sexual topics and other means of disgust. View digression is advised.
Now then, when we last left off, a certain girl had entered into Tsubaki's life, am I right?
Four months into his rather strange relationship with Urabe, Akira Tsubaki crosses paths with his old middle school crush Hayakawa Aika. (So Aika is an actual name...Aika Village Game Theory reference confirmed.) After barely recognizing her, seeing that she had cut her hair short, the two begin to exchange memories they had back in middle school together. Little doe Tsubaki know that Aika here...was falling in love with him.
Afterwards, the two start spending time together and Urabe get's jealous and- wait. Never mind. I'll let you guy watch it for yourself to see what happens. Why?
BECAUSE I'M A HEARTLESS BASTARD LIKE THAT! 8D ON TO THE EVALUATION!
Personal Enjoyment And Final Grade
That's an A in my book. But hey! That's just my opinion. Go see for yourself and I'll let you be the judge and tone in next week for the next anime review! This is BlackStar, logging off!
What is up people! BlackStar here. Happy Thursday to everyone. How is everyone today? I'm a bit pissed off. My laptop somehow got corrupted and I lost all of the videos and the pictures that I needed for the site. Yeah, a bit annoying really. Anyway, the rant I have for you guys today is about comparisons, and how much people hate it. It depends on their point of view.
You see, everyone once in a while we see someone on television - most of the time it's a kid who is a prodigy - that has possibly accomplished something that you can't. I remember once I saw a 13 year old by who created his own personal nuclear reactor IN HIS BASEMENT. Yeah, it was that interesting. There's nothing wrong with being a bit jealous of a think like this, but I remember being at a friend's house when it came on and my friend didn't find it as interesting as I did. For this blog, I shall refer to my friend as Excalibur.
So, I drew a logo today for my friend Kaylena Orr. And it looks rather cute. What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to my Wednesday review. Turns out, I don't rant until tomorrow. But then again, I don't really know what to rant about. (If you have an idea, leave a comment!) Anyway, how was everyone's day today? I spent my day at school drawing the fabulous logo to your left. It's for my friend Kaylena Orr, also known as KatieKat! She's a friend of mine that I met through YouTube and I love talking to her, so I decided to help out. I'll leave a link at the end, which is now because I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO TALK ABOUT! This is BlackStar, logging off!
What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to Social Network Tuesday! Today...I have nothing. Seriously, I have nothing. No one submitted anything! If you have a something you want us to do on a Social Network Tuesday, leave it in the comments here or on any of my other social networks! Anyway, today is Bi Pride Day and apparently it's a holiday to celebrate the bisexuals. I for one am not bisexual and I don't really know anyone who is. But if you know someone who is, give them a pat on the back because today is their day! I mean, it seems to be a big deal. I want to celebrate, but I don't really know how. I mean, I didn't even know it was a holiday until my girlfriend told me. All I know is that you're suppose to wear purple, pink, and blue and I got the blue down (by accident.) But hey, I'll get it right next year. Well, I best be on my way. See you guys tomorrow for Wednesday and everyone have a blessed day! This is BlackStar, logging off.
What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to this week's Game Theory, featuring your host BlackStar, along with partners in crime Gatsby and Axum Haslyn!
(Good job on the intro.)
(I agree. You never open a post like that.)
(Is it a crime to try something new every once in a while?)
(No. Not at all. Continue, please.)
(Fine. Maybe I will.) First thing off, before we start, everyone please pay attention to the picture to the left. It has nothing to do with the entire Game Theory, but I like it because it has it do with Lego, which every one loves. I mean look! It's the freaking Legend of Zelda made in a Lego art style! It's awesome!
This is why we let you fanboy over this stuff.
I DO NOT FANBOY!
ANYWAY, this week we'll be analyze a Game Theory that I actually picked out! That's right, me! I picked it out with my own two hands people!
(You didn't pick it out! You've been refusing to give me back my DS for the past week and a half!)
(Shut it before I shut it for you! It was my idea and you two agreed to it.)
(Correction: Gatsby agreed to it. I just needed something to put up for today. Get your facts straight Axum.)
(Can we just get on with it?)
This week's Game Theory was born from the ridiculous flames of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team for the Nintendo 3DS and this will possibly be the only time that we have a Mario game related Game Theory without focusing it on the red cap crusader himself!
This time, we'll be orbiting around his younger and disappointingly unrecognized brother Luigi and his major role in his game. For once in Mario's life, Mario can go on an adventure alone with his brother NEEDING TO BE THERE.
(See? This is why I hate Mario. He's a heartless bastard.) More importantly, we'll be focusing on the dream aspect of the game and how they're more then just dreams! And the conclusion may make you rethink Luigi all over again.
So, may we get started?
Yes. Yes we shall.
But first, a quick run down of the game itself. In the game, What was suppose to be a peaceful vacation to an island of dreams, Mario and Luigi must save the island from Bowser (again) and an evil being known only as Antasma who draws his power from the nightmares (which he causes) of the inhabitants. Of course, being the RPG of a a game that it is, Mario and Luigi must fight through waves and waves of enemies using attacks that they NEVER USED BEFORE such as...
A majority of the gameplay is inside of the dreams of Luigi. These dreams are a sandbox kind of game in a way. The worlds her dreams of are full of endless possibility, where all of Luigi's wildest dreams can literally come alive.
And BAM! This is where the Game Theory fully begins to light the candle of our interest! Shall we explain? Or better yet me?
You see, there is an area in Luigi's dream world known as DREAM'S DEEP where all of Luigi's inner desires and intentions are expressed to the player. Phrases like "Wait Big Bro!" and "Don't forget me!" can be heard. This is Luigi wanting his brother to succeed.
Think about it. When you lose a battle, you're revived to give it a second chance. An easier chance if you will. He wants you to win, so he is manipulating the game for you to win. He's breaking the forth wall!
Yes! And to think that we all doubted him before. Of course, we've only scraped the surface of this theory because it holds a darker meaning. A much darker meaning then that.
And what exactly is that meaning? Well...We'll have to save it because we are outta time people! So, see you next week to see the end of this theory and I will see you tomorrow for Social Network Tuesday! This is BlackStar, logging off!
This is Gatsby, wishing you all a fine afternoon.
And this is Axum. Peace Mother F**kers!
What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to the Thursday...thing. Sorry I wasn't on for the past few days. (I seriously need something to talk about on Tuesday and Wednesday. Any ideas?) Anyway, seeing that the schedule changed (because of me), I have decided to rant on Thursdays about various topics. (Again, any ideas? Leave it in the comments please :3.) Today, I'll be talking about something that is effecting millions of children world wide. That's right! STUDY HABITS. More like school in general. It's a new school year, and everyone is doing their best to get through school. But it's not only taking a toll on the students, but on the parents as well. There are parents that are ever so supportive of their child(ren) and want them to succeed, and that's a good thing! But then there are the parents who go COMPLETELY OVERBOARD WITH SCHOOL WORK. Allow me to explain a bit. You see, I have a younger sibling who just entered the first grade and her teacher gave her a copy of two hundred words that my sibling should be able to read by the end of the school year. Like, the entire year. Enough time to learn two hundred words. Keep that in mind. Now then, my sister brings the list home and my mother reads it over and helps them out. My sibling wrote down ten words, because that's what they were studying that week. But NO. Mother made her write out ALL 200 OF THEM. Oh, and spell them too.
Now, when studying, the parent is suppose to positively motivate the student to do better. Like "Yay you got it right!" or "Well, you didn't spell it right. But we'll work on it, okay?". Then there's MOTHER, whose more like "Spell the word right or we'll be here all night until you do so!" I, being the annoyingly passive person I am, couldn't even stop this, and I feel bad about that. MOTHER was literally striking FEAR into my younger sibling, with threats of making her stand in one spot for nearly an hour, spelling words. There was even one time when MOTHER said that she would beat my younger sibling if they didn't stop crying. Okay, first off, my sibling was crying because my mother was saying some very hurtful things. Of course they're going to cry more because of that THREAT hanging over their head now. It's insane. See,
WHEN I HELP THEM STUDY, IT'S LIKE THIS
See what I mean? Seriously, people need to calm the heck down just a bit! The school year just started, but no where down the line does it have to become THIS SERIOUS OF A THING. I'm just saying, let your kids study, but allow some free time as well. That's all I have to say to you, because its your mind and I can't change how messed up it is already. I'll see you guys tomorrow. This is BlackStar, logging off!
What is up people! BlackStar here and welcome to this week's GAME THEORY! I am here with my co-host of a brother Gatsby, who has volunteered to help out with mind trip!
Against my will of course. You did threaten to burn my copy of Mockingjay.
I know. But I care!
Anyway, this week we will be doing the famous theory floating around Lavender Town Syndrome.
Yes! Much speculation has been floating around this since the 1990's and Gatsby and I are brave enough to test, analyze, and review our findings!
And you might be wondering where Axum is at this moment. Well, he's out at the moment. He's busy helping us with another Game Theory that we will be doing next week!
Apologizes for not post a Game Theory last week. We were very busy with this one. But hey, we're done with it now!
Indeed. Now then, let's get started, shall we?
So, let me provide a bit of light on this theory, shall we? On February 27, 1996, Nintendo release the first three Pokemon games in Japan. These three games are known today as "The First Three", seeing that they kicked off the Pokemon series as a whole. These three games were still in there somewhat beta stages when they were released. Pokemon Red, Green, and Blue skyrocketed in sales within the first week of their release.
Of course, seeing that it was still partially in the beta version, there were still a few problems. The one problem in particular that we'll be focusing on Lavender Town and the music with it.
Yes. Lavender Town, named probably after the lavender hue the town has (due to the limited color pallet the Game Boy Color back then), has a very peculiar theme to it when you enter the town. It's not the song, but the frequency within the song itself that has stir this big pot of mystery!
The main theme, now known by just "Lavender Town Song" is a song of binaural beats. This is when (and you need headphones to hear this, which was the only way to hear the music back then when using the Game Boy Color) the left ear and the right ear hear two different beats playing, thus causing your brain to combine them into one song. But the frequency of the song is what is quite strange about it.
The song was said to bring headaches, nausea, and even suicidal and homicidal thoughts to the children and young teens playing this game! Rumors have it that over 200 people committed suicide in the first month of the games' release and even more were hospitalized.
And due to my brother's stubbornness and him endlessly begging for me to help, this is where we came in to test this ourselves.
That is right! After we have tested it on people and listened to it ourselves, the results are quite surprising!
(Axum? What the heck are you doing here?)
(I refuse to be your lab rat anymore!)
Yes. But to be honest, only Axum is the one who listened to the song.
ANYWAY, we've had SO many people listen to the song (as well as Rayden's girlfriend) listen to the song and their feedback was ever so helpful!
Yeah. We test on a wide range of people, ages 5 to 19 and most of them reported NO SIDE EFFECTS AT ALL. They were completely normal in the end.
Then there were people who suffer from chronic headaches and migraines have sent feedback saying that their headaches have either lessened to a few times a day to barely once a week or that they've gone away entirely. It' actually a surprising scientific discovery that we may have made.
Yes! Although it is very odd and annoying, the song itself helps in a huge way!
Yeah it does! Thus, making this theory just a myth.
More of an innocent bedtime story to be precise. Something to scare the children.
Well, I guess that's all for now then. Of course, we will be testing this theory further within the oncoming weeks, so we might do a update in the future.
Might? More like "sure as hell" we will.
Yeah. We have more people to test this on, but we'll be greatly narrowing down the test subjects by a lot, so we'll see what happens.
Until then, This is BlackStar, logging off!
This is Gatsby, wishing you all a fine afternoon.
And this is Axum, saying Peace Mother f***ers!
