Saw a sneak peak of "Avatar: The Legend of Korra Book 2: Spirits", and I'm hoping the series actually delivers more than what was shown.
While I loved Book 1, everything was too nicely resolved when said and done. Due to reasons I won't spoil it seems very unlikely we will see a return of Tarlok and Amon, considering how nicely their arcs were resolved meaning we do need new villains.
It seems there is no main villain as of yet, which in terms of Avatars story may actually be a welcome change. At the moment unfortunately, I don't see much reason to hold out for last season's quality.
The resolution to everyone else's arcs however seemed sloppy and thrown together. The Equalists were great enemies and took away the bending of quite a few characters, even Korra loses her powers. Yet the last episode has her talk with Aang, and all the effected benders get their powers back.
In fact there was a love triangle that, lets just say met expectations, and not in a good way, in fact the choice seemed shallow and seemed to put aside character development.
The problem introduced by "Spirits" as I see it as of this moment factors more into the way they solved the loss of powers, it feels as though this should be about Korra utilizing mind after losing what gave her that power in the first place, sort of like what they did with Iron Man 3. As Tony learned to battle his enemies without depending so much on his suit.
In fact I was kind of hoping book 2 of Korra would deal primarily with the benders having to deal with the loss of their powers for at least the first half of the second book, considering it will be around twenty episodes if I'm correct.
Also, what about poor ol' Asami Sato? She got pretty screwed over by Mako's sudden decision in the last episode.

"When I make my first entrance, I'd like to come out of the door carrying a cane and then walk toward the crowd with a limp. After the crowd sees Willy Wonka is a cripple, they all whisper to themselves and then become deathly quiet. As I walk toward them, my cane sinks into one of the cobblestones I'm walking on and stands straight up, by itself... but I keep on walking, until I realize that I no longer have my cane. I start to fall forward, and just before I hit the ground, I do a beautiful forward somersault and bounce back up, to great applause."

(This rant's a bit long, should have probably made it a video instead.)
As the title states I plan to review "Alice: Madness Returns" sometime in the future. I may even make a Let's Play of it before or after. Being a big fan there will be a good amount of me praising it and telling the viewer who most likely doesn't even care that this game exist about stuff only a dedicated fan of Alice and the game would know.
But hold it. doing such a review online, especially if you're lucky enough to have people intrigued to the point of listening to what you have to say has its difficulties, correct? Of course.
I mean look at Yahtzee, he works for "The Escapist", and has a good number of people who enjoy his reviews. A pretty intelligent fan base, because he himself gives pretty well-thought out, as well as funny reviews in the short run time his video's use.
You can probably tell I'm a fan, plus we share favorite games, the original Silent Hill series, (Refer to video of Yahtzee bagging on Origins and praising the first four.) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VS26wbFePSk and his review of "Spec Ops: The Line" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNhPMjbgkXA peaked my interest toward a game I never even gave a second glance when my sister's boyfriend brought it to our house.
So, what did Yahtzee think of one of my favorite games, that was the official sequel to an unofficial sequel of the Alice books, and a cult classic? He... was not impressed. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyeLHSUEB0w
That said, that's where my challenge comes from, dealing with the stigma put towards the game by someone who is pretty popular and gave some arguments I can't even fully debunk.
You'd think that would be the case, my friend however has made me aware that the real asshole bros, not all of them (the ones who make it a mission to treat other Lets Player's like shit for playing games Pewdiepie is also, or has also played. Its true I do not like Pewdiepie's stuff, but I've heard he's actually a pretty nice guy. I just do not find him funny.) are going to be a problem, because he recorded game footage and reaction before I did.
If what I've heard is true that means they wouldn't listen to me even if I went on record stating that I knew about "Alice: Madness Returns" far before I knew Pewdiepie existed, and if my impression leads to Pewdiepie finding out about Alice: Madness Returns after I found out about him, they have absolutely no reason to come on to my page and bitch.
Plus, if those Bros want anything to be angry about, it will be right here, where I state that Pewdiepie's Let's Play of "Alice: Madness Returns" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ty4Wgu-N9gg has absolutely no relevency on mine which will go indepth and dissect the game and the legacy it was planted into, and that's if they are that childish.
"For every successful actor or actress, there are countless numbers who don't make it. The name of the game is rejection. You go to an audition and you're told you're too tall or you're too Irish or your nose is not quite right. You're rejected for your education, you're rejected for this or that and it's really tough."
