Log_Horizon_Part1_DVD_Screenshot1

We take a trip to Elder Tales and end-up getting confused and lost; but that aside what does MVM Entertainment’s DVD Release of Log Horizon – Part 1 have in-store? Find out in our DVD Review.

Synopsis:

Elder Tales has become a global phenomenon, immersing millions of players in its online fantasy world. However, something goes wrong with the twelfth expansion pack. Eight-year veteran Shiroe and 30,000 other players suddenly find themselves trapped in the game’s no-longer-fictional universe!

Except it’s not even exactly the game they knew: things are in different places, the portals don’t work, and if a gamer was playing an avatar who wasn’t a physical match for their real self… well, let’s just say that everyone who’s been playing is going to have to make some serious adjustments to their new world view.

On top of that, the former Non-Player-Characters are now self-aware and working towards their own ends. This collision of the Elder Tale people and players with seemingly impossible skills, abilities, and knowledge promises to be cataclysmic. Get ready for heroes to rise and new legends to be forged as Shiroe and fellow players Naotsugu and Akatsuki discover what happens when sword and sorcery becomes real! Read more of this post

Log Horizon – Collection 2 – REGION LOCKED [GEO-LOCKED]

Log Horizon – Collection 2

BD Region: A (Confirmed NOT playable in the UK)
Boxart states Region A only
– Can be made playable on Region B devices (including PS3) by changing the country of your device to America (confirmed by Bazza)

Price: $48.99 / £32.44 (Excludes Postage)

Episodes: 14 – 25 (2 Disc Set)

Plot: Even as Shiroe slowly learns the secrets behind the creation of the World Fraction spell, the origin of the Demi-humans, and how his own actions in the Real World have affected the world in which he now dwells, the seeds of thought he’s planted in the minds of others begin to bear fruit.

Game strategy and tactics may have been intended for amusement, but their origins were pulled from actual war planning and stratagems. As others begin to accept and implement those theories on their own, the existing alliances and balance of power begin to shift.

Those changes can’t possibly come quickly enough, as the adventurers’ preoccupations have allowed the Goblins to unite and amass a giant army. Now the Goblins are on the march, and as the Estal Lords debate their course of action, Minori makes a dangerous gamble and initiates action on her own. In the midst of this MMORPG turned real, an unassuming princess may prove to be the key to ultimate victory.
