Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked Impression

It's been awhile but I'm back. In addition to getting the flu I've also had the joy of shoulder surgery. I chose to have this done, stuff needed to be cleaned up. Anyway from now on whenever I update the Anime Gaming Guide ( on AOL Games I am going to blog right here and explain why, give my POV on the game I've just updated. So for this week the game I've put in the main spot is 'Samurai Champloo: Sidetracked.' Ok, so by now if you're reading this you've seen SC on Adult Swim or you've bought the DVD's. Sad to say the show is over, run it's course, that's the exact reason why I cannot wait for Sidetracked and why it's in the anime guide. From the first minute you watch SC you wan to pick up a sword and get down to the crazy hip-hop beats (and if you don't, whatever). The style, design... everything about this show is unique and just plain cool. This is a feeling of coolness not felt since you kissed Spike and the crew of the Bebop bye-bye. From what I've read so far, and what I will play very soon, this is not a hack-n-slash, generic, licensed game, it's innovative and different. Take this weird trio on a side-quest adventure while you fight with either Mugen or Jin all the while listening to thumping tracks that affect the combos you perform and combat itself. Genius game play idea and one that will truly carry on the feeling of the SC anime. Here's to hoping this game lives up to what I expect, and that's why it's on the anime guide.

'Kingdom Heart II' image? You noticed huh. While I updated the anime guide this week with SC last week's update was for 'Kingdom Hearts II' on PlayS 2. I will be taking this game for a spin tonight for the first time, but after playing the original and Chain to Memories this puppy is going to be gravy, just nice, brown, warm, juicy gravy on my gaming pallet. I don't have to tell you why this game is on the anime guide, it's great. (But James, um, it's not based on an anime.) On an anime, well yes, technically you're right, but have you read the manga from Tokyopop, seen the Card Game (coming soon, maybe, to the US) or seen any of the animated films that all them there Disney characters are in? There is a tie-in for this, and since movies like the Lion King just ripped off Simba the White Lion then this could be considered and anime tie. Stretch yes, anybody complaining, nope. That's all for now talk to you later.

  1. the history

    the history of the planet at first begins to the dramas of a Hebrew been born to Rome of said Sciannameo name also breccolino a gypsy inhabitant near Rebibbia peripheral zone of Rome been born from Palestinian mother and bolscevica.Detto mostly known father of breccolino"già origin like the polletto counterfeit from medicinal poor a God Martian,un that losing strength itself in the time it has given life to a free revelry from gene outside from whichever universal system.
