How Is Google Stadia Considered A Console? And What Is It’s Purpose? Let’s Take A Look!

I play a lot of games and own a lot of consoles, and am a serious gamer. So you know, I’m part of the target audience for Stadia, right? Maybe? Truthfully I’m not sure. Maybe it’s for more casual gamers who don’t really own any consoles?

I remember when Google first announced their plans to create a streaming console. They said something along the lines of “stream all the new big games, no console, no discs, just instant access to whatever you want to play, for nothing more than a monthly payment.” All Stadia would be is a controller that connects to your TV or what-have-you, and away you’ll play.

I was immediately turned off to the idea of a console that requires you to have a steady internet connection just to play it. So I stopped paying attention to it.

Well, thanks to the collector in me, and a very good deal, I found myself with a free controller and one month subscription (also for free) for Stadia and here’s what I’ve got to say.

So either they falsely marketed it, or did a very bad job communicating their vision, or in the years up to it’s release they changed what it’s all about. I never read anything about it after it’s initial announcement so I can’t really say what went on.

So firstly, the “console” isn’t based off the controller. The console is a Google Chrome-only accessible…website basically, that is more or less an online store like epicgames.com. The convenient thing about this is you can access this literally on any device you have Chrome and a Google account on. So you can game anywhere where there’s an internet connection, so gaming on the go on your phone is out.

The controller can be used to connect to your computer, TV, phone, whatever, by inputting button codes telling the controller what to connect to. This works very well. After you download a couple apps on your phone needed to connect to all of them. Oh, and you’ll also need a Chromecast Ultra if you want to play on your TV, which does come with the Stadia Premium Edition, which it’s cost has been lowered to $99, probably due to lack of interest. You can play straight away on PC though, no apps, controllers or other accessories required.

So as I said, Stadia is an online store. Except it’s a very, very small store. You can browse through it’s entirety in about two minutes, if that.

So when they announced it, it sounded like all you had to do is pay for the subscription and unlimited access to every game on the store is yours.

Well, I hate to inform you that this is not the case. What you have “free” access to is an ever-growing handful of games that are given to subscribers, much like Amazon, Sony, and Xbox subscribers receive each month. But unlike those consoles, the Stadia games seem to stay up forever, instead of only giving you a month to claim them. The subscription fee is $10 dollars by the way, which is pretty gosh-darn reasonable.

Once claimed, you can play these games as long as you’re subscribed. Once you unsubscribe, they will still stick to your account, but you will be unable to play them until you subscribe again.

This would be okay, but there are only like 20-30 games (though it’s always growing), and most of them are indie games, and the low amount of big name games are several years old.

As for the brand new big name games they boasted about being able to play when first announced, there’s a few. Not many, and most of them are UbiSoft games, because they seem to have some type of deal with the popular gaming company, and you can even link your Stadia account to your UPlay account.

How do you play these new games, and the small selection of other games on the store? Well you have to buy them of course! At full price? You bet! Though they do run some pretty good sales by the looks of it, and subscribers get even bigger discounts.

Games you buy are at least playable whether you subscribe or not. But there’s a small catch. If you are not subscribed, you cannot play your games in 4K or use the best sound quality. Drats…No big deal to a lot of people I imagine.

I did try out one game, the latest Hitman (maybe?) and played it for about five-ten minutes. It ran fairly well, only hiccuping a couple times for like a second, which happens plenty of times in games that aren’t being streamed, so at least it works.

And that is all the details about Stadia.

So let’s break down Google’s “console.”

If you want the Chromecast and controller to be able to play anywhere but your PC, you have to pay $100. If you want to just play on PC, all you need to do is subscribe on their website/store for $10/month.

Once done, you can play a handful of free games you don’t want as long as you subscribe, and have to pay for games you do want to play, but in worse quality if unsubscribed.

Where is the console part here? This is basically Steam, UPlay, EA Origin, like all the other DRM’s out there, except you have to pay for it, so it’s more like UbiSoft and EA’s versions that you can subscribe to, but you seem to get a whole lot more with them.

Steam has a controller. It’s not called a console. I just don’t get why it’s considered a console. And I don’t get why anyone would ever subscribe to Stadia. There’s literally no reason to. And if you don’t have a great connection, then what’s the point? There’s too much competition, and not only in just the gaming market. There’s just entirely too many streaming services in general, and Stadia just isn’t worth yet another monthly subscription to add to Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, HBO Max, and the other 2000 streaming services out there. So I really don’t get it, and I imagine most people are on the same side as me, as it appears to be flopping pretty hard.

So basically, I wouldn’t be surprised if the store shut down thus all the games you bought are lost. That’s pretty infuriating even just to think about, and will be even more so, like 100fold, when it inevitably happens.

Nintendo’s Metroid Series: Proving They Might Care About More Than Just Money

In case you haven’t heard, Nintendo is hard at work developing two brand new Metroid titles, Metroid Prime 4, and the newly announced Metroid Dread, the long-awaited Metroid 5.

A couple years back, Nintendo announced that they would be scrapping a couple years worth of work on Metroid Prime 4, giving Bandai-Namco, the developers on the project, the boot, and replacing them with Retro Studios, the company that made the first three games in the Metroid Prime series. They made this decision because Nintendo felt the game, and the direction it was going, wasn’t really up to snuff, so much in fact, that they had to start completely over.

This move really impressed me. I feel like most companies would just shrug their shoulders, and instead of wasting all the resources up until that point, would just carry on and say, “Hey, so what if the game is crap, it’s a Metroid game, so people will buy it up regardless.”

This shows Nintendo actually care about their customers and are striving to meet expectations, which always seem to be extremely high for these folks thanks to their ridiculously impressive history of routinely making some of the best video games in existence.

This is even more welcome news, because Metroid is a series that doesn’t get nearly as many releases as other Nintendo titans like Mario and Zelda, so at least they are being very delicate and thorough with the first new release in over 10 years, not counting the remake of Metroid 2 in 2017.

And of course, I am sure they are most concerned about their own reputation and how it might be damaged with a bad game, not to mention possibly destroying the following for Metroid.

And then we have Metroid Dread. This name has been popping up since all the way back in 2005, right after Fusion was released.

The developers said they had to put the project on hold because the DS did not have the capabilities and technology to do what they wanted. They then tried again later, I’m assuming for 3DS, only to hit the same walls.

Again, I give Nintendo respect for this. They could have easily changed up their plans to make a game fit within the platform they could develop the game on, but no. They chose to wait it out for the technology to fulfill their vision and ensure they give us the best experience possible.

This also begs the question, why not put it on Wii or Wii U. Certainly at least the Wii U could have done what they were looking for? Then again, what do I know about developing and what hurtles they needed to overcome?

Regardless, judging by the trailer for Dread, the nearly two decade wait looks to be worth it!

So thanks Nintendo, for making sure you give us the best games possible for one of my favorite series.

Multiplayer-Only Games Over-Crowding The Gaming Industry?

Each year, there are tons and tons of game announcements and reveals. But there are not quite as many as when e3 rolls around, which is just getting started at the time of this wrtiting. For years now, it seems about half the reveals are multiplayer-only games, and most of them are first-person-shooters, and if not those, then third-person-shooters.

There are literally like 3-5 of these types of games to every one single-player game. I remember when e3 was something exciting, as it gave gamers something to look forward to. Not so much anymore. We might get like 2-5 interesting single-player games now. Though I suppose if you are into the countless multiplayer games, then things are more amazing in gaming than ever.

But let’s be honest. All these games are designed to play forever, until servers inevitably shut down, which depending on the success of the game, could take over a decade. So it baffles me that they could make so many of these games. If players are being loyal to one or two games, how can there ever be a fanbase large enough to sustain 90% of these endlessly released games, especially when so many of them constantly add on to their games to hold player interest?

And I imagine if a player wants to become really good, they are sticking to one game, so that they can eventually dominate most matches.

Online multiplayer has become such a priority, that games that are thoughtful enough to give us a single player are usually, and sometimes weak little game, but we still have to pay full price, mainly to help the company sustain it’s multiplayer software.

What’s even more baffling, is local multiplayer, aside from Nintendo games, has become practically non-existent in most games. Why can I play every game in the world online if I pay a subscription fee, but I can’t play with a friend in my own living room? Obviously, the games that are solely huge battle arenas and the like, local multiplayer is not possible or necessary, but smaller-scaled games that can allow 2-4 players to play don’t have a local multiplayer option.

And yes, I did answer my own question. It is probably due to the fact that they want you to pay for PlayStation Plus and XboxGold or whatever it’s called.

I just watched Ubisoft’s presentation, and it was pretty much four multiplayer games, 2 single player games, and a game that teaches you guitar, which I guess can be considered  single player.

Happy e3 to you online shooter fans. For a pre-event I also watch contained a large amount of games, more than half of them multiplayer shooters, so you’ve got your great selection of picks, even though you’re probably going to stick to what you’ve been playing the past five years anyway…

Us single players will be treated to maybe 10 AAA single player games and a thousand lame indie titles. Woohoo!

Harry Potter Video Games Ranked

I love the Harry Potter books and read them far more than I should. I think each one is better than the last.

I remember when the first Harry Potter game came out, I was excited to play it because it kind of reminded me of Zelda, but with wizards!

Well, nearly 20 years later, I finally played it, and naturally, due to my love of Harry Potter, I played them all, that is, all eight games, because they had to separate The Deathly Hallows into two games, just like the movies, even though they could have easily fit both games in one. But I digress.

I found that these games bounce all over the place in terms of genre and gameplay, so unlike the books, they do not get better with each one, hence why I am writing this.

So here we go, all eight games ranked in order from my least favorite to most favorite. Obviously I am only including the mainline games.

#8 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone

PlayStation 2, 2003

Times Beaten- 1

This game, the one I wanted to play so badly, turns out to be complete crap. You go around Hogwarts completing missions and sidequests with only vague hints to go off on. Every class teaches you a new spell, which to learn, your professors throw you into a deadly labyrinth of Hell to find the spell book. Make it out alive and you are worthy to keep the spell, and the students move on like this is totally normal.

It plays horribly with unresponsive controls, and I didn’t like it at all.

#7 Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

PlayStation 2, 2002

Times Beaten- 1

This game is just like the first one, but has some gameplay improvements. It’s still pretty bad though, just not as much as Sorcerer’s Stone. Also, how did this one come out before Sorcerer’s Stone??? Ahh, that was originally a PS1 game.

#6 Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

PlayStation 2, 2005

Times Beaten- 1

This is the first game in the series to change up the formula. They went with a full action game with this one. Before each level you can pick Harry, Ron, or Hermione, and equip items found in the world that increase health or magic power etc. Whoever you don’t pick is controlled by AI throughout the level.

It’s like a 3D Mario game, in that you go into the same level multiple times to find Hogwarts Crests, much like the Power Stars in Mario.

There are a few spells to choose from, and sometimes all three of you need to team up to move something. Throughout each level you and your computer-controlled partners just blast away at tons of enemies and solve puzzles.

This is the first game that doesn’t take place in Hogwarts, pretty much at all, in fact.

It’s an okay game with one foot crossing over into the “bad” territory.

#5 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1

Wii, 2010

Times Beaten- 1

They really change it up with this one, turning the series into a third-person-shooter. You get a variety of spells and items to use in battle, but it’s cumbersome to switch between them, and they are all more or less useless. The first spell you get, which is your main attack spell, is the only one worth using.

It’s an alright game with some faulty controls from time-to-time.

#4 Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Wii, 2007

Times Beaten- 1

The fifth entry returns the series to the inside of Hogwarts, but with different gameplay. The developers put a ton of effort into this game, and it shows. They managed to get many of the actors from the movies to do the voices in the game, which is nice. The gameplay is solid-ish with a new dueling system that allows you to use different spells for the most part rather easily. There are also mini-games to play such as wizard’s chess and gobstones.

There are lots of fun little puzzles to solve too that net you emblems. The more of these you collect, the more stuff you unlock, whether it help you in the game, or bonus material like cool interviews and behind-the-scenes stuff with the cast and crew.

It is far from flawless, however, but it’s a good game to be sure.

#3 Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

PlayStation 2, 2004

Times Beaten- 1

This game impressed me. It is the style of the first two games, but actually good. The controls work, the gameplay is fun. And you get to play as Ron and Hermione for the first time! Each of the three wizards-in-training learn their own unique spells and you can switch between them at any time, making for more diverse gameplay and puzzle-solving. Thinking on it, this and Goblet of Fire are the only two games where you don’t play as just Harry.

Also, for some reason, Hermione has shining blond hair, which is kind of weird.

#2 Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Wii, 2009

Times Beaten- 1

This game plays like Order of the Phoenix, but improves upon it. This is actually a really fun and really good game.

#1 Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2

Wii, 2011

Times Beaten- 1

They go out with a bang in the final entry to the series. It’s the same TPS-style like Part 1, but fixed everything that made Part 1 bad. Now you can switch spells on the fly, and they actually do stuff, making the gameplay intense, fun, and very satisfying. This is truly a great game. Except it’s super-short, seeing as it basically only covers the tail-end of the book.

So there you have it, all the mainline Harry Potter games from worst to best in my opinion. Truthfully, only the last three are truly good games that I would recommend playing.

It’s Astounding How Useless Most Video Game Trailers Are

Seriously.

How many times have you been disappointed by a trailer? And I’m not talking about a game you were maybe excited for and then the trailer didn’t make it look so good. I’m talking about the fact that they don’t show any bloody gameplay in most trailers!!! And if they do, it’s like a quick second or two of it, peppered throughout the trailer several times. 

But a ton trailers just focus completely on story. Usually long cinematics with either a monologue or text narrating some bits about the story.

Does anyone really care about the story that much? Don’t get me wrong, I love a good story, but I’m not going to buy a game for it’s story. I’m going to buy it if it looks fun. So it’s incredibly frustrating that I have to go on YouTube and look up gameplay videos because the trailers, which are designed to sell the games, are useless.

I find this to be the biggest problem on Steam and the PS store, though I’m not too certain with the latter because they don’t let you skip through the trailer, so I’ve never sat through one long enough to see if it has any gameplay.

But on Steam, they sometimes have 3-5 trailers for a single game, each around 3 minutes long, and you’ll only get about 15 seconds of gameplay collectively, if any at all. This is not always the case, fortunately. Some developers are kind enough to give us a gameplay trailer every now and then.

As I think on it, I realize what these companies are doing now. I forgot. Most people judge games by graphics. So they have to show off all the most graphically impressive moments in their game, which obviously is all the cinematics.

That way people will be like “Oh, look at the graphics, this game must be good!” So consumers will either buy it on the spot, or at least further look into it to find out how the game actually plays. I imagine it’s the same principle as dating. You aren’t going to pursue something initially that doesn’t look appealing to you.

But games are meant to be played. I like to play games…not look at them.

In short, I believe trailers should be like 80% gameplay with some small story elements thrown in. Here’s to hoping!

The Best Bromances In Media

Awhile ago I made a post about the best romances in media. Now it’s time to chronicle some of my favorite bromances, that is to say, some of the best guy-guy friendships that really give a sense of true loyalty and brotherhood, thus drastically enhancing their character interaction and stories.

Oliver Queen & John Diggle (Arrow)

arrow

Vigilantism can certainly bond partners in crime-fighting. Diggle started out as an unwanted body guard, but they quickly became partners, then brothers. They always have each others backs, constantly give advice to one another, especially when it comes to telling the hard truth during emotional trauma that helps them see the light. They are not afraid to speak from the heart, or tell them when the other is doing something stupid.

So whether they are arguing, or having a heart-to-heart, their scenes are vastly enhanced thanks to the  wonderful on-screen chemistry these two actors share.

Sora & Riku (Kingdom Hearts)

sora and riku

These two have been best friends their whole lives, but also rivals. Into the same exact activities, and at one point, the same girl, the two constantly try to outdo the other. When they are separated by the darkness, their friendship is put to the test, but their rivalry grows far greater.

But in the end, these two will do anything for each other. They literally will travel across dozens of worlds, slaying countless foes, just to see each other safe, sacrificing everything to rescue them from danger.

Rocky Balboa & Apollo Creed (Rocky)

rocky3nx41

 

Never have friends beat the hell out of each as much as these two. They start out as fierce enemies, but eventually grow to rivals and best friends. Their on-screen interactions are fun to watch, given their history and similar loves in life. I wish they showed more of their friendship in the films, but there is enough to know these two are bros.

Even after his death in Rocky IV, Apollo’s presence is felt when Rocky is training in Russia. And the Creed movies, which take place decades later, even further enhances how close these two were.

Gimli & Legolas (The Lord of the Rings)

gimli and legolas

Dwarves and Elves kind of hate each other. And it started out the same with these two. But three long movies of them doing nothing but fighting side by side kind of inevitably turns that hate into fierce loyalty. These two eventually become inseparable. They are such masters at killing that they turn it into a game, creating a friendly rivalry between the two characters.

Their small banter, general conversations, and fierce fighting make these two so much fun to watch.

Gilbert Blythe & Sebastian Lacroix (Anne With An E)

gilbert and bast

There are many ways to form an unbreakable friendship. Shoveling coal on a ship is one of them. These two become such close friends that they travel around the world together (while shoveling coal) visiting each other’s home towns, and eventually settling down on Gilbert’s late father’s farm, where the two work together to maintain it, while building their own lives.

They both go through so many tragedies, but never fall, for the other is there for them to lean on. They are both extremely likeable characters, and seeing them together is a real treat. They joke around as friends, but also have extreme heart-to-hearts, as if they are true brothers.

And that’s all I can think of at the moment. I’ll add more as I discover/think of them.

Who are your favorite bromances?

My Top 10 Video Game Genres

Over the years I have been making a bunch of Top 10 lists for games on most of the consoles I own, as well as my out of the norm subjects, such as developers, and ESRB ratings.

Now I will be taking a look at all the games that have made my top 10 lists and finding out what genres occur the most often, for I am curious which genre’s I seem to favor, and this seems like a pretty good way to find out.

I’m gonna go nuts, and even break them all up into sub-genres.

So of all the many, many genres that have appeared on my top 10 lists, here are the most common ones!

#10- Linear

Games that have you follow a more or less set path with little exploration have made my lists 11 times!

#9- Japanese-Style, 3D and Shooter

There’s a three-way tie for the number nine spot! Japanese-style, like JRPG’s, 3D games, usually platformers and the like, and types of shooters made my lists 12 times!

#8- Action RPG

Action games with RPG elements made my lists 13 times.

#7- Arcade

Any over-the-top, crazy fun time games made my lists 14 times.

#6 Open-World

22 games that allow you to wander over a vast world made the lists.

#5- Role-Playing

28 RPG’s made the lists.

#4- Action Adventure

Going on an adventure while killing a bunch of stuff? 41 games did this very well.

#3- 2D

Games played in the realm of two dimensions made my lists a whopping 56 times!

#2- Platformer

Good ol’ jumping around on stuff. This classic genre made my lists 58 times.

#1- Action

Simple, yet effective. If there’s any type of excitement in the game you’re playing, chances are it’s considered an action game, which is why it popped up a massive 83 times among my lists.

And there you have it! Looking at these 10, I am not surprised by the results, and I am certainly pleased with them!

I will update this lists as needed in the future.

Why Do Sequels Always Have To Be Better?

If a sequel to anything…book, movie, album, video game…is not better than the previous entry, then it is completely hated by most of the world.

I can understand that people want something to be better, for why make a new product that is inferior to the last? But to expect something to always constantly be better, especially in long running series’ or bands that have been together for decades, it’s just not realistic and not possible.

Say something like the first video game in a series is very good. The sequel is just “good.” This really means, it’s garbage and a stain upon the earth! This sequel should be “extremely good,” then the third needs to be “exceptionally good,” fourth “positively great,” and then the fifth “flawless.” Any made after that is doomed to fail, assuming the series succeeded in the impossible task of making each game better than the last up until that point.

This is a challenging task in itself, but you’ve also have to compete against nostalgia and expectation, two things that doom every product to fail…in one way or another.

If people really like something in a title, then their expectations run wild within their imagination for the next entry. The internet does little to help, by releasing rumors and getting a dozen “hype trains” in motion, so that by the time the product actually releases, fans have these insane delusions of what the product should be, so that it will never be good enough, despite how good it is or not. They never even consider things the creators face, such as time, and budget, and such resources like that.

And nostalgia, that’s it. If someone is nostalgic over something, then it’s over. Every single product is doomed to fail in that series. Nostalgia asks the entertainment business to recreate a feeling or memory that consumer experienced during the the first thing they played, read, listened to, or watched in that series.

This is simply not possible, mostly because that feeling is caused because it is the first time becoming part of that series. These feelings may have nothing to do with the product itself, even, but from something happening in their life at that time that makes them very happy. These feelings can’t be replicated, they just can’t. Especially if they were first experienced as a small child, versus now being an adult.

I made a post going a bit deeper with nostalgia, so I won’t say too much now.

The point is, people need to stop comparing sequels to the other entries in their series’ and simply look at them as they are. Sure it can be fun to compare them, but just because an older one is better, doesn’t mean the new one isn’t good.

I have long learned that going into anything with any personal wishes, hopes, or expectations of any kind, will destroy your experience and you will be sorely disappointed. The likelihood of something meeting someone’s exact expectations, or even some of them, is the equivalent of winning the lottery.

But going in with an open mind, with only entertainment as your goal, then you’ll experience the product with an unbiased vision, and therefore judging it as it is, not by what it should be or what it was, or what you wished it was.

 

Tournament of Hotties: Cosplayers- Finals

Here we are, the final bout of the hottest tournament to date.

16 of the hottest women I have ever seen competed with all their looks, so that only two remain. Let’s find out who the hottest cosplayer of all time is!

See the rest of the tournament listed here, and let’s get this going!

 

Kristen Hughey

Vs

Jessica Nigri

 

Two busty blond bombshells with big butts are competing here. It should get steamy.

Kristen has defeated Yaya Han, Joanie Brosas, and Jennifer Van Damsel, her large assets helping her win over some truly beautiful and sexy women.

 

Woo, very sexy.

She’s got a perfect body, which makes it tough for Jessica.

But she’s been against flawless before, such as Amy Thunderbolt, Ana Cheri, and Danielle Beaulieu, which is no easy feat!

Wow…just incredible.

Ironically, this is one of the easiest bouts in the whole tournament. One of these women dominates over the other.

Kristen has a great body and nice big boobs and a butt to match. Her greatest flaw is her face, which isn’t all that great at times.

Jessica has no flaw. She’s is completely beautiful. Her face is gorgeous. She is hot, sexy, and cute all at once. Her boobs are full and sexy, better than Kristen’s, as well as her butt.

On top of this, she is one of the most gifted cosplayers I have ever seen, if not the best.

She is one of the hottest people on the planet.

And there you have it! We have our hottest cosplayer of all time!

 

And as always, the bonus of ranking them from least hottest to most hot (in my opinion). I will list what round they made it to in parentheses.

I hate ranking them, for I always feel guilty, since they are all so very, very hot.

But oh well, here goes.

Wow, this tournament could have gone a whole lot differently. All the hottest women were knocked out early, thanks to Jessica and Danielle.

It’s amazing that Jessica was up against the three hottest women next to her in the whole tournament. Her final bout was an easy win, ironically. That is a testament to her hotness!

 

 

Tournament of Hotties: Cosplayers, Semi-Finals

Welcome to the Semi-Finals. There are just four beautiful babes left. Four culled from 16 of the hottest women on the planet. Only two will make it out, so let’s find out who that will be.

Catch up with the rest of the tournament, links listed here.

Now let’s check out some gorgeous figures.

 

Jennifer Van Damsel

Vs

Kristen Hughey

 

Alright, we’ve got ourselves two large breasted beauties here. Let’s take a look at what else they’ve got, starting with Jennifer…

In addition to her large butt and boobs, she has a perfect body and beautiful face. I really like the pictures of her with little to no make up on. It allows you to see just how beautiful she really is.

Next up is the somewhat similarly sculpted Kristen!

What a beaut! Her shoots are very sexy.

 

And now for the hard part. Which of these gorgeous women should move on?

Man, it’s really hard to say.

Jennifer has a slightly prettier face, but Kristen’s hair compliments her better.

Both have nice big butts, but Jennifer’s is better. Her body is also slightly more toned than Kristen’s.

Kristen has slightly bigger boobs, and she looks downright incredible in a bikini.

This is a close one, but the winner’s pictures are more eye catching. In other words, if you saw these two women standing together, aside from the simple fact that seeing them automatically makes it one of the best days of your life, I feel most people’s eyes would be drawn a little more to this one.

Danielle Beaulieu

Vs

Jessica Nigri

These two women are very important to me. Joanie Brosas is the reason I discovered cosplay. But I didn’t become all that interested in it until I discovered the second cosplayer I ever saw, Jessica Nigri.

This is when I realized how incredible cosplay could really be. She’s so talented and the costumes she makes are jaw dropping. But her body made it drop even further. Unlike Joanie, her boobs are massive, as well as having a flawless…everything.

My third cosplayer solidified the idea I had that Jessica was not alone, both in her talent, and her beauty. Danielle confirmed that there were others out there, other also incredibly talented at cosplay, and also incredibly stinking hot!

In short, Jessica and Danielle have made me a fan of cosplay, I love it thanks to them. And these two women also made me believe in love at first sight. They are that beautiful.

Anywho, enough with all that. Let’s see some pics! Here comes Danielle!

God dang. Her curves drive me crazy, on top of her everything else. She is the perfect specimen of the female body.

Does Jessica stand a chance against ultimate perfection? Let’s find out…

This supremely sexy woman can match Danielle’s flawless figure, it turns out. Not only is her body just as perfect, but her boobs are a bit bigger and she’s a slightly better costume maker, I’d have to say.

Overall, I’d say she is more beautiful and sexier than Danielle.

This one is very, very close. Probably the toughest decision yet, for they are both so perfect and hot. But it must go to her.
