Life is Strange Episode 3 Tonight 8pm GMT approx.

  
Hey everyone. I know it’s been a while, and I can no longer call it “episode-a-week”, but I know it’s time for me to continue with episode 3 of Life is Strange, and I will do my best to make it good. 

If you’ve been watching it at all, you need to make sure you’re there for tonight’s episode, as things finally get set into top gear and don’t stop until the end… And end which I am still awaiting and fearing at the same time. Want to know why? You’ll have to be there

Hope to see you there 

 

Beauty and the Beast – The Villain We Never Realised Was Evil

  
We all know the backstory to the Disney film “Beauty and the Beast”. An old woman visits the great castle of a rich and haughty prince. She begs for shelter from the cold outside, but in his arrogance he shuns her and sends her away. Being more than an old lady, the woman shows her true form, a great, beautiful, and powerful enchantress. She punishes the cruel prince by placing a curse on him and his home, turning him into a horrid beast and the staff into the furniture they tended to. She also gave him a rose, which was his lifeline. If he found TRUE love before it wilted, he would be free of the curse. It seems like the story of a bad man being set into his place and taught a lesson. But is that all there is to it? Not at all. 

The curse stated that the rose would wilt on the beast’s 21st birthday. That’s not very old at all, and we know that the beast has been there for a while, so it has been a few years since the curse was placed upon him. But how long are we talking? 

Well, if you go by the lyrics of “be our guest”, Lumierre states that they have been rusting for “ten years”. Its a very specific time frame. Some may say he’s being metaphorical, but if he were surely he would say many years or something less specific, but he doesn’t. He specifically says ten years. Since the rose wilts during the timeframe of the film, I think it’s easy to say that this proves that the prince must have only been 12 at the oldest, depending on how much time takes passes during the film. 

Now let us look at the enchantress again. She curses not a noble and arrogant prince who should know better and deserves what he got, but a bratty kid who was just being a kid. He sees an old lady at the door asking for shelter, offering a rose, and he says no. He was a brat, yes, but surely no more than other kids, and definitely not deserving being cursed to be a beast for so long. The enchantress in the introduction is just as wicked and cruel as any Disney Villain in any other film, and the facts that prove it are right there in the film. No digging, no stretching the facts, no interpretations. It’s all there, and if you know that, it also lets you see the film in a different light.

The beast was 11 or 12 when cursed, then he locked himself away from the world. Keep this in mind and now think about how he acts. During the snowball fight, when he fails at eating correctly, or even when he gets angry at Belle going into the old wing. When you factor his age into it, it all makes a lot more sense. He has been alone with his transformed staff for so long that he never really grew up. Inside, he IS still a child. Belle shows him how to grow up. That, in the end, is the story of Beauty and the Beast. 

Life is Strange Episode 2 – Out of Time Livestream Tonight

  
Hey there guys! Just to let you know that I’ll be doing week 2 of my Life is Strange playthrough tonight on Twitch.tv/DakanaX at 8pm GMT

The storm is coming, snow has fallen in the middle of summer, a girl is missing, and we have uncovered the power to control time. Join me tonight when the storyline starts getting stranger and blame starts being accrued. 

Pokemon Trivia – ORAS Cosplay Pikachu

  
A bit of interesting trivia for you guys here. In Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, after completing a contest you get given a special Pikachu which can dress up in different outfits and gains a different fourth move depending on what outfit it’s currently wearing. It’s pretty cool, and it gives you a major boost in your contest chances since it’s already heavily levelled in its contest stats, and each costume has an attack specifically for each type of contest. 

The odd thing is that although it looks like a Pikachu, sounds like a Pikachu, and acts like a Pikachu, it isn’t a Pikachu, at least not according to where it’s found in the game’s files. 

Pikachu as a Pokemon can be bred to create a Pichu, and can evolve into a Raichu. Cosplay Pikachu cannot. This is because Cosplay Pikachu is technically registered in the system as a DIFFERENT Pokemon. It has the costume mechanic enabled, and with it the switchable fourth move. It’s given the level up skill tree of Pikachu, and the light orb DOES effect it, but that’s all. It doesn’t even get any stat boosts from the Eviolite since this specific Pikachu doesn’t have any evolutions logged for it in the game’s system. 

It is to all intents and purposes a completely different Pokemon. 

Life is Strange Episode 1 Livestream Tonight!!!

Hey guys. Dakana here to just share with you all that I’m going to be doing a series of live plays of Life is Strange episodes 1-4, one episode per week, as a run up to episode 5 the finale. 

I HAVE played them before, but I will do my best to react the same way as when I first experienced it so as to give it the mysterious feeling the game deserves.

I’m aiming for 8pm GMT (approx an hour after this is posted), give or take five or ten minutes, and afterwards I’ll be just spending some time talking about what we learned in the episode and what it could mean. 

I hope to see you there, and I hope you will enjoy it 😀

The stream will be at : http://www.twitch.tv/DakanaX 

(I have to mention that this game contains some bad language, and some mature themes of rape, drugging, and other such things. They ARE dealt with in the mature manner they deserve, but not everyone enjoys such topics, so your warning is here)
