Pacific Rim Review

Pacific Rim

A film about giant robots beating up aliens … and it worked.

When I first heard about this film from my brother I originally thought it would be okay at best and surprisingly the film surprised me on how good it was. The film is about a “war” that is happening between humanity and what they call “Kaiju”.

When people first fight them they basically go all out and although they win they learn they need to create a new weapon and this weapon, the Jaeger, is what the film is about – a bunch of Jaegers and Kaiju beating each other up and to cancel the up and coming apocalypse of humanity.

Losing sight

When people start a blog, Lets Play or whatever they normally start doing so because they enjoy it and not start simply for the sake of profit and if you are lucky people will notice what you do and join you with what you are enjoying doing. If you are unlucky then you either carry on doing it because you enjoy it or give up and move to something else.

Over time you will start to get better and better (only have to look at Tweaked for your Pleasure’s archive) and with this you will aim to become better and better. This could mean a better writer, editor, gamer and what not but regardless you will aim to improve on it and this is what will define you.

Happy Hanukkah!

Yes, I am aware there was no actual article today. I was meant to write one but I completely forgot or to be actually honest, I was lazy to do so.

So Happy Hanukkah. For those that wish to learn more about Hanukkah, there is a good article on Snat’s Blog Archive: Hanukkah – The Festival of Lights.

I hope everyone has a good Hanukkah and I will be back in the New Year with new rants, new reviews, new PHP tutorials. I will however be uploading the final parts of Final Fantasy VI Advance (excluding Dragon’s Den etc) and one more Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure and if you are lucky I may do a end of year special video but I doubt it will be with Popmanw this time.

Part 1: How to do a Let’s Play

Okay so you have seen a series like Playing Games with Snat and maybe you have thought – I would love to do one of these myself and have looked up and seen there is millions of ways to do it. Well you are in a bit of luck as due to me not having anything to speak about, I decided to talk about how I got around the problems I had.

I should note that I went down a hardware route as I do console games but I do also use the same setup for PC games in the future. This guide will assume you have nothing so far, not even a PC, but relax as I will even explain that. I will also note the price for it all but it may not exactly be cheap but where possible, I will link to cheaper or free places.

Why the credit?

Credit is something I never really understood well when it comes to companies giving refunds. The main reasons for offering credit is simple – it is cheaper for them as no actual money is traded, it keeps you trapped with them as if you want to use that credit then you got to use it with them and that I have to say is what is annoying.

So the other day I submitted a ticket to the former web host of Snat.co.il stating that the website was offline yet again and that I wanted to know the reasoning why. So after a few ticket replies debating at them, I then asked for a refund as they have been offline for quite a while and quite often.

PGWS Donations

As you may know it has got to the point where editing Playing Games with Snat is now taking over 11 hours. This is due to a computer setup which I need to change. As I promised people when I first said about a new computer, I am opening up a donation for anyone that wishes to donate towards the cost I have left to pay.

Your donation will go towards a new computer which will be solely used for editing Playing Games with Snat. So what is in it for you. Well the main thing that is in it for you is simply Playing Games with Snat will be published on time and in future I will be able to do actual HD games as due to the current setup – that is next to impossible without taking around 2 hours per clip (on average, one clip – 5 mins).

Final Fantasy VI Advance Review

Well seeing I now have a review section on Tweaked for your Pleasure that is out-of-the-way from people who does not like reading the news or reviews, I may as well write a few reviews now and then while I come up with avoiding writing rants.

Final Fantasy VI Advance
Final Fantasy VI Advance

So to talk start I am going to review a remake of my favorite game – Final Fantasy VI Advance.

Now for those that has been following Playing Games with Snat you will know that it is a remake of the original Super Nintendo game called Final Fantasy VI (Final Fantasy III to those that live in the United States although all future re-releases used the correct number). The game is about the Gestahlian Empire which has the power of Magitek and is slowly taking over the world until a young girl called Terra is freed from their control. Terra ends up into the group called The Returners who then goes on to protecting their home, then all the way to protecting the Espers from the Empire until the world is destroyed and what happens after this I am not going to ruin for you.
