Gangsta is one of the best anime series I’ve ever watched*.

With that said, let’s get into the review.

 

Gangsta is categorized as an dramatic, action anime and follows the story of the “Handymen” who live in Ergastulum; who service both the local police authority and the community (including the underworld). The Handymen worked with and outside of the law, a combination of enforcer and Judge Dredd.

And who are the Handymen?

Nicolas Brown aka Nic: Nicolas is an exceptional fighter with a bit of a secret; but who doesn’t have a secret in Ergastulum? Along with his abilities, Nic is also deaf and communicates using sign language – he can speak but exercises that ability very rarely.

Worwick Arcangelo met Nic when the later was hired to serve as his personal bodyguard. Young Worwick and Nicholas formed an unbreakable brotherhood as Worwick tried to bring Nic into the safety of his world and Nic tried to save Worwick from the realities of his.

Destiny: How to farm for Hadium Flakes on the Dreadnaught

This is was supposed to be part two of my Farming Series for Destiny. I found this gem in my WordPress drafts because for some reason, it escaped the “Publish” button.

The first in the series was the article and Farming Helium Filaments on the Moon.

This video is the easiest farm route I’ve found is in the Mausoleum  for Hadium Flakes on the Dreadnaught – because, who really pays (in game currency or not) for upgrade materials?

Gluten Free: Pantry Additions

If you’ve been following me for a while either on Twitter or WordPress – you probably know that I suffer from Celiac’s Disease. It’s been well over 5 years that I’ve been diagnosed and I’m happy to say that while the autoimmune disease itself comes with a plethora of struggle and tears – it’s mostly managed and eased with diet.

I will continue to share the Brands and items I come across in my hunt for better tasting and healthy gluten free options – the positive part of GF becoming a dietary fad is that those who actually suffer from Celiacs now have a larger variety of options available in store and in restaurants that allow you a bit more freedom when moving around and living life in general.

One Point I want to make is that lot of GF hide behind lot of sugar and sweeteners – it’s important to still read the label (every single time) and check your favorite brands for updates to formulas and recipes of their products.  

Read the label every single time.

Seeker’s Going to Pax: #BGGatPax

When I first came up for the idea for Thumbstick Mafia, I wasn’t quite sure it was going to work – all I knew was that there was something missing from my gaming experience and after 10+ years of gaming with a men majority friend groups, I decided I needed to know what it would be like to actually have a sisterhood of black and minority women who gamed together.

It was immediately rewarding. I wasn’t falling out of love with gaming like I thought – I needed women to relate to.
