Video Game Crossovers!

Happy Wednesday Novas! I was reading a facebook post (I think) and the subject was video game merges. This is such an interesting topic to talk about that I wanted to have the conversation with you all! With the new details released about Kingdom Hearts 3, you know the Toy Story inclusion, I wanted to pose the question and see which video games you would like to see collaborate together! Licensing aside (because you know that’s why some of our dream mash-ups have not happened) what 2 or even 3 games would you love to merge?

Known Crossovers:

The known crossovers of games like Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers or even Killer Instinct merges characters from different games together and makes them a playable part of the game. Mario and Sonic was a pretty big crossover for me because it combined 2 of my childhood favorites, into 1 world where Sega meets Nintendo! Crossover games can give the gamer a boost of knowledge from games that they might not have experienced before. In the original Super Smash Brothers game, I was unaware that Zelda was a Princess and integral part of the series (don’t laugh, I’ve never played Zelda lol).

Fighting games are known for adding characters to their already vast selection. Remember when Marvel vs Capcom first debuted? Finally we could start merging the iconic Heroes and Villains from 2 different realms together (the same goes for Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe). Killer instinct went a step further and started adding on guest characters for other video game types all together (note General Raam from Gears of War and that frog guy from Battletoads). So why not take things a step further and express the games that you would like to see a crossover from?

My Crossover Games: 

So Fable is a RPG game where you make decisions and usher your character through the story. How awesome would it be if when you went to battle the bosses, that a Pokemon Battle ensued? Maybe the Pokemon you can select are based on your abilities and traits (because you can customize your skills in new versions of Fable). If you decide to build a mage with a focus on ice, you could choose Pokemon like Squirtle, Ninetales, Dewgong, Articuno etc. That would be awesome! Maybe the Pokemon can follow you around as well.  imageedit_3_9446357760

Another game I would love to see is a simple combined fighting game. Let’s put Killer Instinct, Street Fighter, Dead or Alive, Tekken, Dragoball Z, Naruto, Mortal Kombat, etc all together in a brawl! I want large 5 person teams of fighters going at it! Think about it, the story can cross realms. Maybe have the gamer create a character and then you would need to cross through realms and fight the best of the best or even try to win a tournament.

What are some Video Game Crossovers you would like to see happen? Let’s talk Video Games!

Daily Prompt: Savor, Young Love

Happy Sunday Novas! I hope that you are having a fantastic weekend filled with blogs, games, friends, family, comics, books and everything else under the sun! We’re doing another daily challenge and I definitely encourage everyone to join in! Enjoy!

Delilah was a spectacle to behold each day that she decided to come to class. Today was no exception. She had on the ripped, dark blue jean shorts that had gotten her kicked out of the room several times before. Her short cut, black tank top rested just above her belly, exposing the jeweled martini glass ring that settled neatly in her button. “Sorry I’m late” she said. Uh-oh, Ms. Penelope is not impressed, she’s glaring at Delilah through her black, boxed rimmed glasses. Does she even have a prescription? I thought. Ms. Penelope gestures toward the seats and Delilah skips on by.

“Hi, Tyler!”

“You know you’re late right?”

Delilah tilts her head to the side and cracks a smirk. “So…” she laughs and punches me in the arm. Even her flirty punches are something that even her flirty punches are something that seem majestic and out of a novel. “She’s already got it out for you.” I gesture to Ms. Penelope who is still peering out of her glasses at my best friend. “She’ll be alright, so what’s for lunch?”

Before I could answer the bell was echoing through the halls and we were out for our hour lunch. Delilah grabs my ice cold hand and interlocks it with hers, as we walk to the cafeteria. She will never know how much I admire her, how much I want her and how much I will actually do for her.

“Hey, Ty… I’m going to get us some drinks. Be right back.”

“Sure thing!”

I can’t take my eyes off of her. Delilah doesn’t walk; she glides across the tile floor with ease. I bite my lip at the thought of having her in my arms. Today’s the day that I will taste what it’s like to be entranced by a siren. I stand up with authority as she returns to the table with our drinks, take her by her curvy waist and pull her into my body. Our eyes meet with intensity, her big hazel eyes cannot shy away from me any longer.

“Ty…”

“Shhh don’t say another word.”

Kissing-Couple-Silhouette

My hands slide up to the back of her neck and I pull her into my kiss. I promised myself that when I finally gave in to my desires that I would make the most of it, that I would savor every taste, every sound and every moment that she was in my arms.

Delilah drops the tray of food on the table where we are sitting.

“What are you thinking about?”

“Oh, nothing.”

I grab a carrot stick from the plate and take a bite with the biggest smile. I can still taste Delilah’s sweet, berry lips, even if it was just a dream.

WWE 30 Day Challenge Days 11-15

Happy Saturday Novas! Today’s blog post will be the missed days of the 30 day blogging challenge. This installment focuses exclusively on WWE! I apologize for not posting these everyday, but I figure I would post 5 at a time, since these are sorter blog posts. Let’s get to the topics!

Favorite NXT Tag Team

The questions are a little hard to answer when you try to gauge if the question refers to “of all time” or just the current rosters. I will just answer the questions based on the current rosters unless the question specifically says “Of All Time.” With that said, Currently I do not have a favorite tag team in NXT. I loved DIY but…. yea that happened.  To be honest, I haven’t watched NXT in a few weeks so I’m not even sure which tag teams are even a thing other than Authors of Pain.

Favorite Title Belt

My favorite title belt by far is the Intercontinental Championship Belt. The IC Belt has always been my favorite because it looks so sleek and pretty.

New_Intercontinental_Championship_design_2014

Favorite NXT Match of All Time

There have been a few really good NXT matches. The Triple Threat between Asuka, Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot was pretty good, NXT Takeover London when Finn Balor came out dressed like Jack the Ripper and the Triple Threat between DIY, AOP and The Revival at NXT Takeover Orlando during Wrestlemania weekend! I can’t decide but NXT has had some amazing matches!

Favorite Main Roster Champion

I will mention my favorite main roster current champion. This is probably going to surprise people but I love Alexa Bliss as champion along with Jinder Mahal. Both are heel characters and in my opinion they play their roles really well. I love really good heels as much if not better than a face character.

Favorite NXT Champion

My current NXT Champion has to be Asuka, even though her character is starting to rub me the wrong way. Asuka is a really great Superstar and I like her… when she’s not being too arrogant on the show.

Five Sentence Story Prompt: Hidden

Happy Thursday Novas! Today’s post will be my entry into this week’s 5 sentence story prompt. The 5 sentence story prompt is a contest going on where you submit your best 5 sentence stories.The winners get to display their winning award picture. It’s really fun and a great way to get those creative writing wheels turning. This is my 2nd week entering! Feel free to join in on the fun. This week’s prompt is hosted by Mila, Doodling Panda. Check out the official rules by clicking here.

This week’s word: Hidden

The highborn are all too much like glass, offering up their tributes for my father’s favor. They think this smile, my attention, flattery, maidenhood is for them; my life for sale at our Winter Festival. Must I partake in the praise and indulgences rippling through my father’s royal court? “My Lord,” I curtsey, submitting to my duty as Princess, the scent of my freedom no longer fills the air, for this burden I do bear. His feral scent and lips so dry cannot lower my smile, yet I shy away from his gaze; for in my eyes, my true feelings are revealed.

Thank you for reading this week’s prompt. What do you think of the story? Can you tell what I was going for and what was “Hidden?” Let’s talk creative writing!

The Kingmaker’s Daughter Book Review!

Hiya Novas! It’s time for another book review and this time we are diving into a genre that I have become obsessed with.

Title: The Kingmaker’s Daughter

Author: Phillipa Gregory

Pages: 412 (actual story) 448 (Total Pages)

Series: Book# 4 out of 6 books published about The Cousins’ War

Release Date: August 16th, 2012

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Genre: Historical Fiction

kingmaker

The Kingmaker’s Daughter is the story of Anne Neville ,daughter of Richard Neville who was given the title of Kingmaker, and her life as it revolves around the dangerous game of running a kingdom. It’s a historical fiction account of the events leading up to and beyond the crowning of a new King of England, from the House of York. The story takes place during the Cousins’ War (commonly known as the War of the Roses) and is told exclusively through the eyes of Anne Neville.

The Kingmaker’s Daughter is the griping tale of the daughters of the man known as the Kingmaker, Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick: the most powerful magnate in 15th century England. Without a son and heir, he uses his daughters, Anne and Isabel, as pawns in his political games. When Anne is left widowed, her mother in sanctuary, and her sister married to the enemy, she manages her own escape and makes a choice that will set her on a collission course with the overwhelming power of the royal family.

The events in this book and the story in general, take place during the events of The White Queen (you can read that review here) and the reign of York King Edward IV. The book is written as a journal of Anne’s where you will read the events of her life as if told through her pen.

My thoughts:

I feel like the book is a very quick and easy read. Since it takes on the tone of a journal, you’re not reading a full page looking for transitions to the next topic or battle. It is very balanced due to the journal style of writing)so there is immediate conflict and questions presented. As you continue reading, the answers to the questions posed earlier on, start to reveal themselves and you crave to learn more about the events unfolding. I love that there’s action and I felt as though I were reliving the life through Anne’s eyes. There’s plenty of suspense and moment where you are left with a sense of loss.

Quotes From The Book:

  • “Do you eat the food?” he asks quietly. I shake my head. “I never eat the food from…” I tell him in a whisper. “Not since George warned me.” “Neither do I,” he says with a sigh. “Not anymore.”
  • They are a terribly handsome family. Nobody can deny that they are as beautiful as if they had the bluest blood in their veins… And they are seated at our table as if they were young people of royal blood and had a right to be with us, the daughters of a countess.

When I write Video game or Netflix Reviews, I include an area at the end of the review for my top reasons to “Play” or try the series and “Skip” for reasons you may not like it. I will use that method with the book reviews as well.

Play:

  • A different point of view on the story of Edward IV
  • A quick and exciting paced read

Skip:

  • Not a fan of historical drama

Reviews:

Goodreads – 3.9 out of 5

Barnes & Noble  4.1 out of 5

Personal Review  4 out of 5

I know there’s not many negatives in this review, but my bias is taking over. I think it’s a great read and I found that I was questioning the “Accepted” versions of history. When I watched The White Queen, I had 1 picture of Anne in my head, but reading this book presents another (I still don’t like her, but I was able to find understanding in her actions). The book makes you think about the actions in regards to each person’s individual scenario.

Thank you for reading the book review of The KingMaker’s Daughter! Have you read any of Phillipa Gregory’s books or any historical fictions novels? What’s your favorite time period to read/wrte about? Let’s talk!

WWE 30 Day Challenge Day 10!

Happy Monday Novas! Today is my “Friday” at work as I am off Tuesdays and Wednesdays ( yup these days off suck lol). I’m at work stalking the clock so that I can go home, but at least I was able to finish The Kingmaker’s Daughter book today! It was amazing and I can’t wait to start reading the comic Snot Girl (gross I know) when I get it our o my car later lol. Anyways, today’s post will be short!

Favorite Main Roster Tag Team

So here’s the thing. Enzo and Cass are no more and they were pretty entertaining. I’m not a fan of New Day never really was). I could go with the Hardy Boyz but I wouldn’ say they are my favorite. I guess I will have to go with The Usos or Sheamus and Cesaro!

The Usos have been favorites of mine for a few years now. I liked them better before the heel turn but they’re still entertaining to watch.

imageedit__6742034334
Look at the difference lol

Sheamus and Cesaro are amazing as tag partners. They grew from hating each other to being a truly dominant force in the tag team division. And they managed to make Sheamus likeable lol. Didn’t see that coming!

What are your favorite main roster tag teams? Are there any tag teams that you would like to see form? Let’s talk WWE!

WWE Great Balls of Fire Results!

Happy Monday Novas! Last night was the Great Balls of Fire ppv for the Raw brand. Let’s jump into the results of the night!

Bray Wyatt vs Seth Rollins– The opening match was Seth Rollins taking on Bray Wyatt. Bray and Seth had a pretty good battle up until the end where the ref was pulling Rollins off of Wyatt and Bray poked Seth in the eyes. Yup that was the ending and my husband lost to a ref on payroll and an eater of worlds who pulls a 3 Stooges lol. Results: Bray Wyatt Wins. gbof

Big Cass vs Enzo Amore – The feud between former tag team partners Big Cass and Enzo went to the ring. It was not a good match as all that happened was that Cass showed his dominance. It did, however, solidify Cass as a Heel and I think he will make a great opponent for monster amoung men Bruan Strowman. Results: Cass won of course.

Tag Team Ironman Match– The 1st tag team ironman match was good. It was 30 minutes of fighting to see who could win the mosts points by pinfall, submission or count out. The 1st pinfall came 16 seconds in when Sheamus and Cesaro tricked the Matt Hardy into thinking Cesaro was the legal man. That landed him a Brogue Kick straight to the face. It looked grim for the Hardyz as they were down 3-1 with about 10 minutes to go. Results: Sheamus and Cesaro retain with a count of 4-3 (they ran for the last 13 seconds lol).

Womens Championship– Alexa Bliss took on the Boss Sasha Banks. This was the best match to me so far in the event as the women weren’t holding any punches. Can I take a moment to say that Alexa Bliss is a great heel. She is one of the best heels in the WWE at the moment, just by the way she taunts people and the way she wrestles. Anyway on to the results. Results: Alexa Bliss retains by getting herself counted out (she didn’t want to get back in the ring with the Boos)… But wait… There’s More! Sasha didn’t let Alexa walk out scotch free with her title. The Boss chased her down and the end result was Alexa getting the Double knees from the announcers desk at the top of the ramp. 

Intercontinental Championship Match – The Miz took on Dean Ambrose fr the gazillionth time. I’m not faking as if I really paid attention to this match becuase I didn’t. It’s played out. Results: The Miz won which is what I wanted so that someone else can have a shot at the IC belt now maybe Finn Balor!).

miz

Ambulance Match– Probably my favorite match of the night. Braun Strowman took on Roman Reigns and they were not holding anything back. After destroying each other Braun won the match by moving out the way when reigns tried to Spear him into the ambulance. This is where it gets good. Reigns breaks out of the ambulance, beats up Strowman and drives away. Then the best thing happened, Roman looked like he started a Heel turn… Roman backed the ambulance into a trailer and left Braun in the crushed ambulance. Is this the heel turn that everyone wants? We shall see. Results: Technically Braun won.

Universal Championship Match- The main event was between Brock and Samoa Joe. I was upset at the outcome because now the Universal Title is going back in retirement. Results: Brock won. Sheesh I don’t like Joe but at least we would have seen the title more. This is the FIRST defense since Wrestlemania in April! Are you kidding me????   brock

That was the PPV event. I’m not going to lie, it was a little lackluster to me. Hopefully Raw will be better tonight. Did you watch the event? What were your favorite matches? Let’s talk WWE!

WWE 30 Day Blogging Challenge: Day 9!

Happy Sunday Novas! Today is the Great Balls of Fire Pay Per View event for WWE! I can’t wait to watch the action unfold. We are marching on to day #9 of the 30 Day WWE Blogging Challenge. Today’s topic is a “No Brainer” for me so let’s get to it!

Fav WWE Faction of All Time.

Ummm…. THE SHIELD!!!!! shield 2  The Shield was a WWE faction that consisted of my husband Seth Rolllins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns. The Shield took the WWE Universe by storm when they showed up out of nowhere (from NXT) and started attacking Superstars. Many thought they were hired guns by CM Punk who was champion at the time. The Shield was different, they entered the ring from the crowds, dressed in all black and called themselves the Hounds of Justice.

Side Note: I wasn’t watching during the time that The Shield was introduced and competing as a faction, but I do remember my brother nad his friends wearing black going to Wing House to watch the events lol.

The Shield dominated the scene for about 2 years and they held the Tag Team titles, battled the Wyatt Family, took on Evolution, held the United States title and shortly after their unfortunate end, shield3   all become World Champion (in the same night at one point lol). These 3 Superstars are sitting at the top of the pack and their reign as  a dominant group is thanks to their individual talents!
