Feralia.net blog. episode 43: Review – X-Men: The Dark Phoenix Saga

Lately I’ve been talking a lot about getting back into my favorite super heroes, the X-Men. Long story short, I started and fell in love with the comics in the 90’s, and later fell away from them. After a few unsuccessful attempts to get back into them I started again, but decided to go back to before I started (close to the beginning) since I’d missed out on so many legendary stories.

Perhaps the biggest and most and important story I had missed out on is the Dark Phoenix Saga.
Dark Phoenix Saga
The edition I read is a collection reprinted in 2019 (ISBN 978-0-7851-6241-0) and collects Uncanny X-Men #129-137.

After starting with Essential X-Men volume 1, which is in black and white, this was quite a different experience. After reading 528 pages in b&w, this was a special treat. I really appreciated getting to experience this saga in vibrant full-color. It was a much nicer experience (even though the previous stories were great, too).

Like many other X-Men fans who started around the same time as me or later, I already knew quite a bit about The Dark Phoenix Saga. At least I thought I did. I knew of the main result of the story (like pretty much everyone does as this point), but not how it exactly, physically occurred.

The creative team of Claremont, Byrne and others really shines in this collection as they create one of their greatest works, also considered widely to be one of the greatest stories in comics in general. The writing, art and character development are all top-notch. Even though I knew a lot of the outcome beforehand, reading it was still a really great experience. I won’t say anything specific, but seeing some of my most beloved characters going through such an ordeal first hand was really moving at times, and while knowing what was going to eventually happen definitely softened the blow, it still made me really feel for them.

This collection features not only Professor X’s then current team of Cyclops, Storm, Nightcrawler, Wolverine, Colossus & Banshee, along with Phoenix of course, but also the first appearance of Kitty Pryde (aka Shadowcat)!

The tale definitely lives up to its reputation, and if you haven’t read it I would definitely recommend doing so. I’m excited and happy that I finally got to experience The Dark Phoenix Saga, and can’t wait to continue catching up with the X-Men! The cover price is $24.99, which is really a steal for such an awesome collection. (I got my copy from House of Pop Culture in Waldorf, Maryland. They have an amazing selection of not only X-Men Trade Paperbacks, but comics in general. If you’re anywhere near the area, check them out!)

Next up in comics I’ll be moving on to another legendary X-Men story: Days of Future Past.

Feralia.net blog. episode 42: Review – Dragon Quest Builders 1 and 2

I’ve been wanting to mention these games since the original came out, and with the sequel being recently released, I decided this would be a great time to stop putting it off.

I was super excited to get the first game in 2016, and it didn’t disappoint. In fact, it exceeded by hopes and expectations. Sure, there are the obvious comparisons to Minecraft. But this game takes most of the great stuff about Minecraft and adds so much more. There is a fun, deeper-than-expected story, memorable NPCs, an amazing soundtrack comprised of new renditions of classic songs from the Dragon Quest series. and to top it off, it captures all the charm the series has come to be known for. Even when silly, it’s fun and adorable. The recipes come over time as you progress through the story. This requires patience for those ready to build the biggest and most varied creations, but it’s also quite rewarding to unlock them. I played Dragon Quest Builders on PSVita, and would probably rank it among my favorites of all time.

After all of the countless hours of enjoyment I got from playing the original, I was naturally super excited when Dragon Quest Builders 2 was announced. I even pre-ordered both the game and season pass months ahead of time (which is a rarity for me nowadays). This time around I’m playing the Nintendo Switch version.

I haven’t finished it yet, but so far it’s amazing – bigger and better than the original with so much more to do. It’s just as story based as the original. The amount of new stuff and activities is staggering. The story seems to be even better so far also. While you don’t need to have played the original to understand it, there are plenty of references to the first game, which makes it even more rewarding to those who played it first. What’s so unlike any other building game I’ve played are the sections of story which take you away from the main area of the game. Right now my character has been thrown into a prison with all tools and items taken away. While I’m anxious to get back to my beloved Isle of Awakening and continue building, sections like this add to a fun story.

If you haven’t played these games yet, check them out! They are by far by favorite building games!

Below are some pics of my character. 😉

Pets!! I love my dogs, but I spotted a cat in the prison. If I get to take it home I’m gonna freak!
