It has been quite sure time since I have done one of these, so here is a quick disclaimer. SPOILER ALERT! The following article contains the end of the game TOMB RAIDER. If you don't wish to have the end of the game's story ruined for you then stop now and proceed only one you have beat the game. Otherwise continue on and discuss with me how the story ends.

Over the weekend the Rocky Mountain Anime Association (RMAA) and the Japanese Consulate held a summit to find the answer to one of the most important questions that an anime fan can ask. Why is anime so popular in North America? To find the answer to this question six professionals gave presentations on the history of anime in the states and why we are so interested in it.
Dice is at it again! Ladies & Gentleman let me introduce to you the very first campaign gameplay footage of Battlefield IV. This video is taken from a section of the campaign in Battlefield IV called “Fishing in Baku” and shot in-game as well. From the 17 minutes I got from the video it looks amazing! Check out the video below.
Every story has a beginning. Every person has a moment that defines who they are. The question is how will you let such events change you? That is the focus of Tomb Raider. What starts as a journey to find a missing island turns into an ordeal that shapes Lara Croft from a green archeologist into a fearless adventurer.
All Stories Have a Beginning
Lara Croft has ventured all over the world in search of ancient treasures. She has been to Nevada, Egypt, Atlantis, Tibet and the Arctic Sea. She has fought beings with power beyond that of mortal understanding. But what makes a person capable of such feats? Where does one get the strength of will to keep going against odds that would make a lesser, and arguably saner, person run?
I had fallen in love with the StarCraft series when it first came out while I was in high school. I remember the rush of beating a level and the excitement of progressing the story. I also remember the fun challenges I gave myself (can I deplete all the resources before I destroy the enemy? Can I destroy the enemies with just the race’s workers?) that would cause me then play the game over and over. When StarCraft 2 Wings of Liberty was announced, I was insanely excited. My (then) boyfriend got me the game and I beat it in 3 days. During an Anime Convention. I don’t remember much of that convention. I just remember the excitement of seeing the characters again, the heightened graphics and the continuation of the story.
And we are back to a normal podcast. Hope you enjoyed the Animeland Wasabi Specials.
