Around July, Namco-Bandai registered the trademark "Soul Calibur: Lost Swords", and nothing more was known about what kind of game it could be. For the last few months there has been much speculation as to what this game would be.
Another sequel to the previous Soul Calibur game? A spin-off  like Soul Calibur: Legends ?"
No one knew, until just recently (last week):
Thanks to Gematsu
Soulcalibur: Lost Swords is in development for PlayStation 3, the latest issue of Weekly Famitsu reveals.
Details are currently slim, other than that it’s a free-to-play title.
 Then just a few days after:

With even more details that would emerge afterwards like:
The fact that it would be more of a single player experience with weapons having elemental effects (I.E. Fire,Water,Earth,Wind, and etc.) with each having their own strengths and weakness as well as having the same fighting system of Soul Calibur 5 with some new features (like Elements).
It'll be exclusive to the PS3 this upcoming winter.

I have my share of thoughts on this news and about the returning character that makes it's appearance in the trailer above.

Fanart From Soul Calibur 2: Nightmare/Siegfried

Hi there! Been too long since I've last posted and new fanart. Anyway! x'D
Here is my latest fanart of Nightmare from Soul Calibur 2 in his Player 2 Outfit.
Nightmare and Siegfried are two of my favorite characters from the medieval fighting game series for how different and how similar they are, especially since they were the same character (Like in Soul Calibur 2).
Siegfried has been a fav of mine for his looks, his character development, and his unique mix-up/mind games play style. He is actually the first character I really liked enough to train and actually play seriously with, when I first played Soul Calibur 4 before I took fighting games seriously (beside Smash Bros Series).
Also I have began to like Nightmare even more nowadays with his looks, his character development, and his aggressive play style.

As for the picture, I drew it after hearing of the exciting news that Soul Calibur 2 is going to be brought into the current gaming consoles in HD and Online!
So Inspired by that news, I drew Nightmare in one of my favorite outfits of his that shows a bit of how both of them were once one in the same.
I just recently had some time and desire to color it in and I tried to add in some shaded details.

Anyway I hope you all like it!

My First HomeStuck Fanart! :D

Hello everyone! Been like forever since I've posted any fanart. 
Well I finally drew my first official fanart of Mituna from the webcomic series: Homestuck and it's the first time I've ever officially posted any Homestuck fanart! :D 

As for the picture, it was inspired by my lovely girlfriend (who I met at a homestuck group when I had just got into it and she also got me even further into homestuck) who's like my Latula and I am like her Mituna (we plan to cosplay them together in the future) and she asked my if "taken" had two "k"s in it and I thought it sounded kinda like "Tekken" (the fighting game series) and well since both homestuck characters are big gamers we both thought it would be something Mituna or Latula would say. xD

So yeah I drew this based off of that lil idea of ours and also... I'm Takken! xD

Anyway I home you all like my first Homestuck art. ^w^

G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review (Part 6: Overall Thoughts

Now that G.I.-Joe: Retaliation is now offically in theaters in nearlly all the different formats,
I think today is a good day to post my overall thoughts on the
G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack
For those of you who are just joining in on the fun,
here is what we have covered so far:
Now on to the my Overall Thoughts after the jump!

G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review (Part 5)

Welcome to the fourth installment of my
G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review!

Today we will start off with the last (but not least) figure for this boxset review:
Snake Eyes
Here we have G.I.-Joe's silent but deadly ninja/commando: Snake Eyes.
Ever since his first appearance in the first series of G.I.-Joe 3 3/4-Inch action figures, Snake Eyes has always sported the all black look.
Funfact: Originally he was going to have a camouflage pattern but due to financial restraints, Hasbro ended up making him in all black plastic with no paint applications at all. Thanks to that we were given one of the most recognized characters if the G.I.-Joe series.
Over the years, he has had 60 different versions released since 1982 and most of them still retain that all black look he's become known for.

How does this version stand against the others and what makes this version worth picking up or not?

G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review (Part 4)

Welcome to the fourth installment of my
G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review!

Today we will start off with the third figure of the set:
 Storm Shadow
Cobra Commander's personal bodyguard and the ninja brother of Snake Eyes.
Storm Shadow's look hasn't changed too much over the years and usually he always wears his white duds.

How much has he changed in this version, and is it for the best or worst?

G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review (Part 3)

Welcome to the thrid installment of my
G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review!

Today we will start off with the second figure of the set:
 Cobra Commander
Here we have the fearsome leader of the terrorist organization: Cobra.
Cobra Commander has always been one of my favorite characters from the G.I.-Joe series for
various reasons like his look,his personality, and his position of power.
His color is usually blue (and various shades of it) but he has also worn outfits of various colors and designs over the years. He's also worn black plenty of times in the past and always looks in it.

So how does Cobra Commander look now that he's back in black?

G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review (Part 2)

Welcome to the second installment of my
G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review!

Today we will start off with the first figure of the set:
 Roadblock (as played by Dwyane Johnson AKA The Rock).
The Rock comes with his ROCKet Launcher.
Roadblock is the G.I.-Joe's heavy arms specialist who's been known to speak in rhymes (at least in the cartoon) and can cook one a hell of meal.
Though he didn't have much impact on me as a character back as a kid, I think the movie's really breathing new life into this character which is causing me to actually have interest in him.
Also casting The Rock to play as Roadblock was a brilliant idea because besides having star-power, he's an all around awesome guy. Can't wait to see how he portrays one of the Joes!

Click Below to read and see if this Roadblock rocks or blows.

G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack Review (Part 1)

With G.I.-JOE: Retaliation about to hit movie theaters next week,
I thought it might be a good time to review the
G.I.-JOE: Retaliation Movie Preview 4-Pack
Containing: Storm Shadow, Cobra Commander, Roadblock, and Snake Eyes

Even though this pack was originally released sometime in 2012 before the movie was supposed to come out before it was pushed back til this year and all the toys related to it that were put on the shelves last year were quickly taken off and sent back to Hasbro.
But anyway let's get back to the pack, shall we?

Today we will start off with the packaging and the unboxing of it.
 In these following days before the release of G.I.-Joe: Retaliation, I'll be posting reviews of each of the figures here and then my overall thoughts on this pack as a whole.

Green Screen Test (Before and After Comparison)

Hi there! Been awhile since I've uploaded any new animations since last year when youtube took down my latest animation (Star Wars: Fall of Naboo ) and started to remove the music from nearly all my previous uploads.
Here is a small clip that I just made that shows the before and after my using of a free program called Wax. 2.0 to add the greenscreen effects.
It also shows one of my sets for my latest project I'm about to start on soon.
Hope you like it.
Also please let me know if you all would like me to put up videos like this from time to time.
Thanks and enjoy! :D

My First MLP: FIM Fanart! Fluttershy! :D

Hi Everyone!

Been awhile since I put anything new up. Life's been crazy: Was sick for two weeks (still recovering somewhat), before that was super busy, and yeah just been off the wall.

I actually started drawing this earlier in January (last month) cus I was planning on going to an Anime Con where the voice actress for Fluttershy was going to attend and I hoped she would sigh my picture. I was just about done with it and was going to color it and then BOOM! I got a full blown flu,fever,cough,cold, and all that crap right before the con... D:<
So yeah that was dissapointing to say the least.

Click on the picture to see it BIGGER.
But now that I've gotten better I decided to finish it.
I really tried some new things here like: having her in a sitting pose with Angel (the bunny),background and having various things like trees and bushes with different animals, and different ways of coloring and shading.

Also this is my first Official My Little Pony:Friendship Is Magic fanart and it's of my fav character: Fluttershy! :3

Anyway, I hope you all like it! :D
