The Vow-My Review

Posted in Film, Opinion with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 26, 2012 by SaitoNetwork

Firstly, I want to start by saying how much potential I saw in this story, how great it could have been, how long it could have been written out, and how striking it could have meant to so many. But sadly, and regrettably, it didn’t even come close.

The film carried out as I see it by the following scenes: Love, Crash Accident, Hospital, Flash Backs, Lost Memory, Lost Love, Awkward Confusing Marriage Moments, Family, Change of Mind, Quick Moment of Love, Divorce, Separation, Family Secrets, Reason, Going Back, Remembering Love, Wanting Love, Going Back to Love, Starting Fresh – END

It was easily perceived, honestly you could see the moments coming and I was shocked it began with such passion and ended so short of its original gusto. The movie came from being a love drama, to a cutesy teen-oriented romance within a single setting. The reason she left, switched around to a different personality from her previous life, and married him were so shallow. Though tragic, surely it appears that more besides her Father cheating had to be the cause of it. It left you feeling breathless and disappointed, winded, like taking a punch to the gut.

The movie concept had so much potential, but the ending needed a little more thought and it was unfortunate not even a glimmer of her memory could surface to make the ending special.

Even though life isn’t a fairy tale, this one is in so many ways, and they ended up killing the magic after it started.

I regret the minutes that I wasted on this flick.

Salute your fearless leader! LOL

On a side update, Activision is supposedly prepping a new TMNT game; I wish I were a part of this TMNT franchising, so much fail happening and what a sorry looking TMNT-TV series Nick has brought to the table-I mourn for 2k3.

TMNT TV 2012: Michelangelo Action Figure/Toy Review

…interesting. I’m not a fan of the wide cheek expressions, it’s more frog-like and very unturtle-like.

Well at least toy fans and kids will be… oh who am I kidding, my head hurts T_T.

TMNT 5: Director Announced

Posted in News, TMNT with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 15, 2012 by SaitoNetwork

Jonathan Liebesman, who directed Battle: Los Angeles (His upcoming film “Wrath of the Titans” is coming out March 30th 2012) will be directing the next upcoming TMNT film; currently he is under negotiations with Paramount.

Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form along with Platinum Dunes will be producing the film.

Okay, let me take a moment to think… wow, okay: I see effort.

They are actually taking this seriously, I mean forget the TV series, let’s focus on the future of the movie series; I hear it’s is supposed to be a really gritty-dark take on the series. I’m hoping for a PG-13 rating here; no turtle has said “damn” or “shit” or anything a New Yorker would be belching out into the swarm of a mob of ninja attackers for a loooong time.

Let’s see what they bring to the table, I’m really excited personally to hear so many professionals are involved in the production of this film.

TMNT TV 2012: Sad time for turtle fans…

Fellow TMNT fans, kid to adult TMNT fans, view the following images for me please:

A little blast from the past here, nice to see. You see, the eighties turtles are nostalgic, they’re something to be remembered but not to be exploited- take a look at these and yes unfortunately they are very real-

Welcome to TMNT TV, 2012.

TMNT expressions are vaguely similar to that of FF (Fast Forward).

One word: Backwards.

We’ve stepped, backwards, with this. And why is Don missing a tooth?… do you guys think he’s, younger, than fifteen now?

I find this entire reboot for the TV series an insult to my intelligence, do they honestly think that this will pass off? The fans crave for sophistication, dark plot, depth in character and emotion, better storyline- what is this? They look like they are made of playdo, it’s a Sonic-TMNT crossover and it’s depressing; fans, what are we going to do to get this series back on track?

MGR: Revengeance

Posted in Metal Gear Solid with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 6, 2012 by SaitoNetwork

HD Trailer-

So, out of the moth balls of theories and conjecture comes the real truth about Raiden’s, or otherwise known as “Jack the Ripper”, intriguing scape from MGS2’s drama… a monster is born:

I only wonder if he is more or less becoming an Anti-Hero for the series, more so than what Solid Snake was geared for, no pun intended.

My thoughts on this upcoming game… I doubt this will disappoint anyone interested or not, once you play the game, I think it’ll speak for itself.

The graphics, incredible, vibrant, brilliant, crisp- MGS4 inspired no less.

I am looking forward to seeing his departure, the continuance to where MGS2 left off with Raiden and his girl; we may even see his dark change when he forced himself to leave.

I also wonder, how he managed to become a cyborg; hopefully it wasn’t all that painful (highly doubt it was anything less than terrifying and painful of a process.).

I anticipate the release date to be announced possibly this E3, it may end up being a Christmas bonus to our collections or it may be an early 2013 anticipation.

What are your thoughts people? Please leave a comment and tell me what you think of Metal Gear Rising!

Zelda Wii U, Zelda 3DS: Predictions

Posted in Nintendo, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 5, 2012 by SaitoNetwork

I’ve reviewed all that has occurred over the last two years, and this is when all the hype of Twilight Princess had died down and Skyward Sword took the spot light of rumors and anticipation; boy what a two years it’s been.

And what a let down, the mysterious Zelda Wii turned out to be an over-exaggerated, pumped, hyped, brilliantly marketed, self-promoted, unsettling scandal for the entire Zelda premise. We were expecting something alike to TP’s graphic and art style, something with enhanced realism and perception; what we got turned out to be a Wind Waker crossover.

I’ve never experienced such a let down for the series since Twilight Princess was pushed off for four years in the making; and we still didn’t get what we wanted all together.

I look at this behemoth mess Nintendo is now experiencing for the first time since the Wii was drowned out by the Xbox 360 and the PS3’s graphics power; an underestimation of the fandom.

Nintendo assumed that we as fans can take what they can dish, no matter what it is, and even go farther by abusing our emotional connection with the series by making promises they have yet to keep. This entire down turn Nintendo is finally facing was completely predictable, and embarrassing to say the least. With $250 the 3DS was being sent to the market as a start up, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing; $250 for that?? I can hear the reverberating echoes of the PS3’s massive mistake coming out of it’s most cherished grave to where it will stay forever in chains; the hiked price of more than $800 for a console system proved to be a massive fall out for Sony; Nintendo, did you or did you not even notice how damaging Sony’s mistake cost them? It wasn’t just a price flop, it was a PRODUCT flop as well; the original model was an over-heated mess and with constant need for upkeep and replacement. Nintendo has reenacted the very mistake, sadly so, Sony made in it’s great popularity of the PS2; the expected to much from the fans, and especially in our economic placement here. Honestly, do most American’s, Europeans, Asians, Australians, South American’s, African’s and more besides have an extra chunk in American dollars to the tune of $800?? And that was just for a console system; Nintendo, you asked for $250 on a portable graphical emulator far behind in comparison to other handhelds at that price?? Australia was given a demand of $350 per 3DS; that’s a hundred dollars more than the asking price in North America! What else did you expect to happen? The Economy is getting worse, not better, and it looks as though it won’t be getting better any time soon in the upcoming future; what did you expect to happen?

From this massive cut back, to the continual drop in Nintendo’s net-worth, the unfortunate discovery of Skyward Sword as an edition to our favorite Zelda series and only one remake of our favorite Zelda game… it’s finally getting those creative juices stemming back into Nintendo’s infrastructure.

You guys grew too fat and arrogant over your proud gaming name, you took a leap of faith that this ridiculous turn of events wouldn’t bite back and it did after all!

2012 is a new year, and a promising one; don’t expect the end of the world to visit us so soon. I am looking at the Wii U’s modest construct, the powerful graphics emulator tucked inside the cheap design, and the promising effect of the touch pad that comes along with it; I predict a gaming experience with Zelda we all have been waiting for. I can tell that this is Nintendo’s humble way of apologizing, giving us finally an HD-powered system that will support the now-next generation of video game experience.

My only doubt, rests on the basis of Nintendo’s intentions; will they or will they not listen to the fans pleas? Zelda Wii U, I am expecting great things from you.

On another venture, with the released information about an original Zelda title for the 3DS, my hopes are high for this one. If it is anything like the remake of the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time they might get the series and the 3DS finally back in gear! If they don’t mess it up, make it as innovating of an experience as the recently released remake with it’s gorgeous graphical interface, a well-made storyline, and fun game play- it could be a success.

It’s time to see Nintendo step up and take action, will this be the year we’ve been waiting for since OOT?

Please leave me a comment and let me know!

Hey guys, once again, I’m back! I plan on becoming a more frequent visitor then I’ve been for the past three years. Saito Network has received over 371,000 views! A grand standing total w00t!

After all this time I’ve finally got the blog-itch back in my system, and I’m changing the basic subject of Saito Network. My blog has been known for it’s Mega Man news updates, now I’m going to be covering multiple subjects.

Opinion-

I’ll be discussing my own personal view points on subjects both controversial and unnoticed.

News-

Anything I find intriguing and worth sharing I’ll spread the updates to the blog site and on my Twitter.

Video Games-

Mega Man is a dying series and I’m frustrated with Capcom’s poor understanding of our fandom; I’ll be moving onto different franchises that I enjoy, as of the following:

I’ve been an MSG fan for years and so much has happened for the series, gotta start digging up dirt on it!

KH is a fantastic RPG series and KH III is just on the horizon! DDD (Dream Drop Distance) looks amazing as a 3DS entry! Though I do have some regrets from viewing the trailers and screen shots, I’ll talk about them later.

Of course, I’m a Legend of Zelda fan. It is my favorite gaming series of all time; my personal favorite is Majora’s Mask. SS (Skyward Sword) in this blogger’s was a TERRIBLE down turn for the series. I know that isn’t everyone’s favorite subject, but I’ll explain more in detail later.

Other Random Gaming Series-

I’m a fan of the gaming world in many different franchises, you’ll be seeing more updates with many different updates on my personal favorites!

TV Series/Movie Series-

I’m a huge fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, ever since 2001. I have a lot to discuss about the series and the upcoming movie that I am looking forward to! I have a bad feeling that the TV reboot of TMNT is going to be a flop for the majority of Mature-Older TMNT fans, we’ll just have to see what 2012 holds for us as a whole.

I have other TV Series/Movie Series that I am interested in and will be discussing anything I find of interest.

Fan Pieces, Art & Literature-

You’ll be seeing my own fan art and literature for the many media entertainment subjects I am personally interested in; I have a lot to do and I have so much to show!
