Disneycast Episode 2 – Dumbo, Bambi, and Cinderella

Apologies for the lack of a non-Disney podcast this week, if anyone actually cares that there wasn’t one. We had a busy week with our friend coming back from Army training and Brandon wasn’t in the mood for podcasts and stuff.

Also, apologies for him sniffling a bunch. I cut out as much of it as I could, but there’s still some in there.

What’s in this ep:

0:00 – Introduction
2:12 – Dumbo intro/history of Disney up through Dumbo
8:02 – Dumbo shows the future of animated movies
10:22 – Analyzing Dumbo
34:02 – Bambi introduction
35:22 – Analyzing Bambi
(At one point I say that I don’t remember the music of Fantasia because I don’t care about it. I forgot that we also had it turned down and talked over it. Still, I don’t think it’s an entirely incorrect statement.)
58:26 – Cinderella introduction
1:00:00 – Analyzing Cinderella
(I think Brandon and I are on two different pages re: gender roles in this part)

AARPG – Castlevania Aria of Sorrow Review, Video Version (With bonus intro skit)

If you’ve already read my Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow review, this is just a video version of that review, with a minute and a half-long skit tacked onto the front. The skit was recorded for the hell of it and I thought the best way not to let it go to waste would be to actually integrate it with a video review. I want to get back into video reviews, but this is just a bit of testing the waters.

AARPG – Mass Effect Review

This might be a weird way to start an analysis, but I need to get it off my chest: Mass Effect is too short. My playthrough clocked in at around twenty-one hours, and I did somewhere between 60 and 70 percent of all the side quests. I’m starting with this because twelve hours into the game, I was ready to consider Mass Effect as one of the few games that I can truly call favorites (alongside Dark Souls, Tera Online, and Super Meat Boy). However, the game ended so abruptly that it left me wanting more, to where I think I’ll need to play the other Mass Effect games before I’ll be able to call them a favorite as a whole.

I’ll dissect a bunch of the game’s strengths and weaknesses in a bit, but before that, I want to briefly summarize my playthrough, which has a lot to show for what I felt about the game’s pacing.
