Showcasing the Scout Regiment as they repel the fearsome Titans threatening humanity, the launch trailer for Attack on Titan officially reveals that players will be able to play beyond the end of the show’s first season via extra game-exclusive missions! Capturing intense, action-packed combat and impressive attack moves, the launch trailer reveals two sinister new types of Titans for players to take down. The Armored Titan, a 50 foot tall behemoth with immense strength and speed can destroy anything in its path, and the monstrous Beast Titan is a gigantic ape-like creature that uses immeasurable amounts of force to crush its foes! These extra missions offer additional high-octane battles and exhilarating action within the Attack on Titan universe.

Those who pre-order Attack on Titan from Amazon, GameStop or Best Buy will receive two different downloadable bonus costumes: The Clean-Up Eren & Levi Costumes, as well as Mikasa’s Costume ‘Summer Festival’. Alternatively, those who purchase on PlayStation®4 digitally through the PlayStation®Store will receive a selection of Character Avatars featuring fan-favorite characters Eren, Levi and Mikasa!

I remember my very first gaming console: A Sega Master System. I was about 8 years of age when I had received it. That right there was my gateway into the realm of gaming. My favorite games to play were ‘Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego?’ and ‘Alex Kidd In Shinobi World’. From there, I got my very first NES and SNES. I was done for after that. Those two systems started what would become a life-long obsession for me. I got those two Nintendo systems when I was about 9 or 10…I’m almost 27 now, and I’m still obsessed with Nintendo, and it’s an obsession that I am proud of and will never quit obsessing over.

Mario Bros. was my first game, then there was The Legend of Zelda. That game is what created the gamer within me. The Legend of Zelda sparked a fire in me so fierce, I could hardly contain it. Still to this day I play the original Legend of Zelda for the NES and all of the ones that came after it. It was the story behind the game, the fantastical world of Hyrule, that drew me in deeper and deeper as the series carried on. Hands down, I can say that The Legend of Zelda is my all-time favorite game series.

As a little girl, you’d expect me to be playing with dolls and ponies. Instead, I was busy adventuring, saving the land of Hyrule, and defeating Mother Brain in Super Metroid. Gaming has molded me to be who I am today. Today, I have found passion in a career that is based around a world I love so dearly: Video Games. I am a gaming journalist for several websites, and as time goes by, I can only hope to branch out further into the world of gaming journalism. I am ambitious, and know that I will reach my goals one day!

So who am I you ask? Well, the name is Felisha, but I go by Nightingale . I am an avid gamer, cosplayer, anime enthusiast, artist, writer, blogger, sculptor, mother, and a wife. I have many responsibilities and many titles. But what is it that defines me as a gamer, anime enthusiast, and so forth? As I’ve mentioned previously in the beginning of this short novel, you see why I consider myself a gamer. I never out-grew gaming, and it never out-grew me.

Life-long Gamer Addict: 

Today, I own a Nintendo GameCube, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo Wii U, 3DS XL, and PSP Go. Not to mention the multitudes of emulators and roms on my smartphone. I will always be partial to Nintendo because that is what I grew up with and loved, but I love my many other consoles as well, and game on each and every one of them in my free time.

Part of my gamer set-up!

Part of my gamer set-up!

As a child, video games helped me escape a world I didn’t really care for at times, and helped me sink into a world where I felt I belonged, and where I was most happy. They hold a special place in my heart and always will till the very end.

Anime Enthusiast: 

I didn’t get into anime until much later on in life. I remember my first introduction to it being Sailor Moon and Dragon Ball. Later that moved on into Cowboy Bebop, Wolf’s Rain, Witch Hunter Robin, Fullmetal Alchemist, and so many others. Still to this day I watch anime…some of my favorites are Attack On Titan, Soul Eater, Hare+Guu, Elfen Lied, Spice & Wolf, Fruits Basket, Ouran High School Host Club, and Rosario+Vampire. I even read manga too! As it is just the comic version of all my favorite animes!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Current Anime/Manga Obsession: Attack On Titan

Current Anime/Manga Obsession: Attack On Titan

 Cosplayer In The Making: 

I have a long ways to go when it comes to cosplaying, with only a few under my sleeve. I think the most elaborate one I did was one of Midna, from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess in her human form. I made everything by hand…I even hand painted all of the intricate designs on her cloak, her sleeves and on her skirt. It took me at least 3 months to complete it all. Someday, I’ll revamp it, making it better and more professional. My last cosplay was Saya Takagi from the anime High School of the Dead, the only thing I hand made from her costume was the pleated skirt…First project on a sewing machine, and I just had to go and make a pleated school girl skirt…

Everyday Nightingale: 

Most days you will find me in my comfy pajamas, typing away on my computer while video game sound tracks play in the background, with my 3DS XL at my side. And while doing all of this, I also tend to my baby girl who is almost 2 years old while I’m missing her 5 year old sister who is away at kindergarten. Amidst all of that chaos, I add more fuel to the fire by working some days for my apartment complex, and babysitting three others kids about 4-5 days a week. Luckily, through it all, I have an equally geeky gamer of a husband to keep me somewhat sane through everything I do. I am a busy woman, and that at times gets in the way of my ‘otaku-ness’, but I’m still a super geeky otaku gamer at the end of each and every day!

Everyday Otaku, Nightingale

Whoever said you can’t do what you love for living was dead wrong! I do what I love everyday and make somewhat of a living off of it! I can only hope to continue using my Otaku Gamer wit to get me far in life, and make an awesome living for my two beautiful girls and my loving fellow-otaku of a husband. Peace, love, & Video Games! Nightingale, out!

No GravatarNews came about just a few days ago that Anime Limited has gained the license for the original soundtrack for the popular anime series Attack on Titan. The soundtrack contains 16 tracks, both inserts and background music, from the anime all composed by Hiroyuki Sawano, who has also composed songs for Gundam Unicorn, Guilty Crown and Kill la Kill. Songs include Attack On Titan, The Reluctant Heroes, Call Your Name, Eye-Water, Counter Attack-Mankind, and Rittaikidou.

We can expect a physical CD release later this summer, but as of right now, you can buy and download the entire soundtrack from all of the popular digital music stores, such as iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon.

No GravatarAttack on Titan Eren Titan

Attack on Titan is a fairly recent anime that has gained a lot of popularity amongst Otaku and others alike.  It’s adapted from a manga series written by Hajime Isayama.  The anime is produced by Wit Studio and Production I.G.  The series is currently only available in Japanese.  I recently watched Attack on Titan courtesy of Netflix and I was not disappointed.  Out of all the years that I’ve watched anime, I have to say Attack on Titan is one of the best.  There’s a good amount of story, drama, action, and it never lets up!  But before I get too carried away with telling you just how much I love this series after binge watching all 25 episodes over the course of 48 hours, there is more to Attack on Titan than my love for it.

As we begin the series, Attack on Titan brings you into a world where humans are scarce.  Why are they scarce?  Titans.  Titans are giant humans of sorts that tower at numerous different sizes.  Through the series, we quite often see titans at the heights of 10-14 meters tall.  No one is quite sure where these titans came from or what their motivation is, but they’re there and they love the taste of humans.  To protect themselves, the remaining humans managed to build towering walls that act both as protection and a cage.  The titans can’t seem to get in, but then the humans can’t go out, unless they want to be massacred.

“On that day, mankind received a grim reminder. We lived in fear of the titans, and were disgraced to live in these cages we called walls.” – Eren

Eren Titan MonsterThe protagonist of the series is Eren Yeager.  As the series starts out, he’s a young boy with dreams of joining the Scout Regiment, a branch of their military.  Eren believes strongly with all his will and being that they can eradicate the world of the titans and be free of the walls he feels trapped within.  His adopted sister of sorts is Mikasa Ackerman.  Although she doesn’t agree with the way that Eren goes about things carelessly and fullheartedly, she supports him with every essence of her being and stands beside him to make sure he doesn’t die in the process.  They’re very close to one another and it’d difficult to tell whether their bond is more than friendship.  There is also Armin Arlert that is a friend to them both.  Armin is the cunning and intelligent character that often serves as providing guidance to Eren, Mikasa, and many others in the series.

The military is split into three branches:  Military Police, Scout or Survey Corp, and the Garrison.  The Military Police protect the king and maintain order within the walls, primarily within Wall Sina, the innermost wall.  The Scout or Survey Corp go out beyond the walls to learn more about the titans and destroy as many titans as they can.  The Garrison or Stationary Guard protect the walls.

As you begin the series, in the first episode, everything happens at a rapid pace.  Things go from a peace that lasted for a century to a titan wreaking havoc, kicking a hole in the outermost wall, and letting many, many titans in.  Though many people are evacuated, there were a far many more that were eaten by the titans.  Eren and Mikasa are traumatized while watching their mother being eaten alive after failed attempts at freeing her from a collapsed building.  Eren’s passion in fighting against the titans and getting revenge is only further ignited.

Speed ahead five years exactly where you have Eren, Mikasa, Armin, and their fellow cadets preparing to pick a military branch.  Before they can, another attack eerily similar to the previous one, wreaks havoc on yet another wall.  This time Eren, Mikasa, and others must fight until people can be evacuated.  In the process of this, many die, including Eren.  Or does he?

If you lose, you die. If you win, you live. If you don’t fight, you can’t win!” – Eren

MikasaAs Mikasa finds out of his death and is fighting, she struggles to fight and even gives up with two titans closing in until a mysterious titan saves her, demolishing the titans.  This mysterious titan shows no interest in eating humans, only in destroying titans.  Towards the end of the battle, it is realized that the titan is Eren.  Somehow Eren can change into a titan. But how? Why?

You’ll have to watch the series to find out!!!

Attack on Titan is such a thrilling and amazing anime series.  I give the series an A+.  I highly recommend it to all that want to watch.  Everything about this anime lives up to the hype.  Attack on Titan has earned a spot as one of my favorite anime series of all time.  It’s just that good.  As long as you have no problems with subtitles, you should thoroughly enjoy the series.

Funimation will bring Attack on Titan to North America for purchase some time this year.

“This world is merciless, and it’s also very beautiful.” – Mikasa
