Friday Funny 158: The Ultimate Crossover War

There was an idea, Stark knows this, called the Avengers Initiative. The idea was to bring together a group of remarkable people, see if they could become something more. See if they could work together when we needed them to to fight the battles we never could.

TGIF

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome everyone for this Friday post. If you are reading this post right now, this will be the biggest moment in your life because today is the official movie release of the long anticipated superhero film Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War. This movie was in development for about 10 years since the first MCU film Iron Man in 2008. From 2008 Iron Man to 2018 Black Panther, this was the longest wait; especially Marvel/Disney had to get rights from companies such as Hulk belonging to Universal and Spider-Man from Sony. Marvel has brought all the superheros together and to face a major threat that holds the fate for humanity and the galaxy. The disbanded Avengers are back together, the young Spider-Man joins this galactic fight, Dr. Strange join forces, the recent king of Wakanda Black Panther must enlist his Wakanda soldiers to help fight the evil aliens and we have the ragtag Guardians of the Galaxy to help. The main villain Thanos is collecting 6 Infinity Stones for his Infinity Gauntlet. In trailers, he has two in his gauntlet. Thanos is not alone his world eradication because he has children team called the Black Order. This will be the greatest crossover ever and this is a fight that will decide the fate of the superheros. If I do see this movie, I will not be spoiling anything about this movie #ThanosDemandsYourSilence . Please respect the viewers and do not ruin this for anyone.

Besides this movie, this is the last Friday for April and as we get close to May, get ready for upcoming events. For the blogging team OWLS, we already have decided the next blog tour and I will be posting my post on May 1st and the medium I choose will not be an anime or cartoon. In the movies playing in theaters we have the upcoming Star Wars story, Solo: A Star Wars Story. This movie will talk about the iconic character Han Solo in his earlier youth and we get to see characters like Chewbacca and Lando Calrissian (he first appeared in The Empire Strikes Back). If Avengers wasn’t enough for you, we have the return of the lewd and rude antihero, Deadpool 2. Ryan Reynolds returns as the Merc with the Mouth and he must create a team and fight against a futuristic cyborg antagonist named Cable (the same actor is also doing Thanos) who is hunting a mutant child.

Enough, these are memes I prepared for you today:

Here are some videos to hype you this weekend.

Here is a recap of past MCU movie trailers:

 

In time, you will know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right. Yet to fail all the same. Dread it. Run from it. Destiny still arrives.

Have a nice day!

Game news: Sonic Mania, Dragon Ball FighterZ and Spider-Man

I got not one, not two, but three existing video game news!

Sonic Mania

Even though it is already been announced earlier, Sonic Mania will be getting be getting a physical release and will come with new updates and the game will be titled Sonic Mania Plus. According to this tweet and trailer, this new update will feature the long characters Mighty the Armadillo and Ray the Flying Squirrel from 1993. The game will have newly designed stages and also a new 4 player competitive match. This updated game will be out on June 17th and if you already have the game when it came out, this “Plus version” will be available anywhere in Xbox One, Playstation Store, Nintendo eShop and Steam.

Dragon Ball FighterZ

The insanely popular anime fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ will be adding another DLC character and it’s another antagonist. Appearing from Super, the villainous Zamasu will be joining the fight and the character name will be called “Merged Zamasu”. Merged Zamasu is a fusion character of Goku Black and Zamasu and he appeared in Dragon Ball Super in the Future Trunks Arc.

Spider-Man PS4

Announced today, the upcoming Spider-Man video game revealed some exciting news for anyone planning to preorder the game. Besides the Spider-Punk being a DLC costume, players will also be getting two costumes from MCU films. The first one is the homemade costume from Spider-Man: Homecoming (it actually first appeared in Captain America: Civil War briefly) and the new Iron-Spider suit as a promotion to Avengers: Infinity War. Once again, Insomniac revealed that the DLC costumes can still be unlocked in the game even if you didn’t pre-ordered, but this option is the player’s choice if they want instant access. You can read about the pre-order news from this post.

Rurouni Kenshin manga returns in June?!

I didn’t expect to this news in the morning. It seems like Kenshin will be back in June. After being charged for harboring child pornography at work and home and being charged for 200,000 yen ($1,870), Rurouni Kenshin is expected to come back in Weekly Shonen Jump in Japan.

June 4th will be the day where the Hokkaido Arc will resume. According to the Shonen Jump editorial department, the team gave a huge apology to anyone who was involved and had concerns about the manga. The department mentioned Rurouni Kenshin creator Nobuhiro Watsuki and revealed that Watsuki took this hiatus and reflect and remorse for his crimes.

So it looks like after the terrible news before, the creator regrets what he did and he is hoping he be forgiven. Rurouni Kenshin Hokkaido Arc will be back in June 4th in Japan. This will also mean, American readers will be able to read the manga too.

Friday Funny 157: Ash Friday

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another episode of Friday Funny! I hope everyone is doing great this week as week continue to go through this wacky weather in Spring. Lately over here, it either feels like Winter came back for revenge or Spring is just visiting. Before I begin, I got some news going on in the internet world. Today is the official release of Playstation’s popular series, God of War (or the internet calls the new game God of War 2018 or PS4). As someone who has a PS, I love this game and I do feel guilty for not finishing the entire series. I only completed God of War 1, 3 and Chains of Olympus on PSP. In this new game, the story takes place after the events of 3 where Kratos successfully killed off all the gods on Mount Olympus and killed the leader Zeus. Unlike the previous game where the story’s setting is based off from Greek Mythology, the new story is focused on Norse Mythology. I don’t know much about this genre of myth, but if you are familiar with Asgard, Valhalla, Odin or pretty much anything related to Thor from Marvel, get ready to experience this game. Also, unlike like the last game where you hack and slash enemies, you fight as if you have to actually plan your attacks. You’re not alone in this game, Kratos has a son named Atreus who helps you by shooting at enemies with bows and arrows and it’s up to Kratos to protect him and teach him the dangers of the world and the Norse gods. Overall, according to reviews this game is one of the best games for PS4 in story and gameplay. As a side note, it won’t have any micro transactions so that’s a win! (I am adding this game to my wishlist)

Besides that, we have one week until Avengers: Infinity War and things are about to get intense for the superheros as they fight Thanos and the Black Order. I hope you watched all the MCU films because once we start the movie, you better remember the characters and the location of the Infinity Stones.

With this said, let’s begin this Friday, you mortals!

Here are some interesting God of War videos I found interesting. The cause of Kratos’ hate towards Ares and the gods was the death of wife and daughter. As soon as they died, Olympus died. In this new story, Kratos and his son are faced against new challenges.

Here are the remaining MCU films in Phase 3:

Captain America: Civil War

Doctor Strange

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Spider-Man: Homecoming

Thor: Ragnarok

Black Panther

The end is near. 7 days left.

Bye!

Blogger Appreciation Award nominated by Raistlin0903

I want to say thank you Raistlin0903 for nominating me for the Blogger Appreciation Award. I was nominated way back in January, but I forgot about this award and I feel bad. Thankfully, I was able to remember and I will do whatever it takes to finish this post. I recommend following Raistlin0903’s blog if you like movie reviews and anime!

Here is the rules:

(1) Thank the blogger who nominated you, link back to their site.

(2) Write a paragraph of something positive about yourself.

(3) Nominate and notify as many bloggers as you wish.

Positive about myself?

Just like Raistlin0903, writing something positive about myself is kind of tricky; it’s easier said than done. Is there anything worth talking about that I can say about myself being positive. Well, I can say that even though I can freely chat with anyone and enjoy a good chat, but deep down I am really shy and collective. I am just a normal guy who likes to write about things that piques my interests. I appreciate anyone coming here and saying hi to me and commenting on the things I write. I try to take my time and respond back to anyone who wishes to hear back from me. You guys help make feel special for someone who just loves to write.

Kingdom Hearts III news: Classic games and new detailed Twilight Town

Hello everyone! I got some more gaming news to tell you and it’s from a personal favorite series. I actually saw this from Twitter from someone who is named @RedMakuzawa, someone who loves Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts. Also revealed in YouTube from the Kingdom Hearts official channel, Square Enix revealed a detailed version of the iconic Twilight Town along with returning characters Hayner, Pence and Olette in new clothes. We also got some gameplay of some interesting minigames which are inspired by 1980’s LCD games and Disney cartoons (think of it as combing Mr. Game and Watch and vintage Mickey Mouse as a game). Based on the trailer, there is four minigames to play and each one as a goal to winning.

I mentioned this in a old post that Square Enix already revealed that they were going to do minigames based of this by showing us a game called Giantland.

Thank you @RedMakuzawa . Keep us updated on video games. According to the description in Youtube, this trailer was revealed at a panel dedicated to the mobile game Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]. The fan event is called  KINGDOM HEARTS Union χ[Cross] Dandelion Meeting.

What do you think about these minigames? Kingdom Hearts III will be released for Ps4 and Xbox One and it is unknown what is the release date, but it is likely to come out this year. Twilight Town is well known in the game series and it first appeared in Chains of Memories and playing a huge role in Kingdom Hearts II and 358/2 Days.

Hidden Gifts from my birthday

Remember back in March I mentioned it was my birthday? I don’t know if I gave you the details of my gifts, but I was keeping it secret because I wanted to surprise everyone. I revealed this in Twitter today that I got Netflix. My parents got me a $60 Netflix gift because I always mentioned that I wanted to stream shows and movies without having to deal with ads. Since my sister eggs me on about not watching the Flash, I decided to take this opportunity and start my account.

Also, my friend Allie from Visionaries got me a Pop figure of baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie. The picture that was taken was on March 30th. She also got me buttons that represent me. One is about my skills in writing and the other is about my Christian faith. The pins are from the website Graphics and More.

The reason why I didn’t Netflix during or a day after my birthday was because it has been really busy in my personal life such as Easter and spending time with the family. Now that I finally got moving, I will try to stream some shows and movies!

My Hero Academia game is coming to North America!

It is already known that this game is coming to Japan and Europe, but now Bandai Namco just recently released news that the game inspired by the anime My Hero Academia is coming to America.

Revealed in the tweet, a trailer revealed the gameplay of the characters and the battle features such as stage destruction and a sidekick assist combat. However, this game got a name change. According to the trailer, the game is called My Hero One’s Justice. It’s unknown why they decided to remove Academia or it could be an error. In America, this game will be available for PS4, X1, Switch and PC for this year.

Friday Funny 156: Find meme, post it, get ignored… get ignored?

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Hey everyone, this is Matthew from Matt-in-the-Hat. This is the second week of Friday in April and I hope everyone is doing okay. This weekend will be busy for me because I have plans with the family this weekend, so just in case I don’t respond quickly online, you will know why. Also, if you didn’t know, we already in Spring and this season is the beginning of spring anime such as My Hero Academia season 3, Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online and Tokyo Ghoul:re. As a way to promote the new anime Tokyo Ghoul: re, Viz Media (English manga license company) is having a sale on all Tokyo Ghoul manga in digital format. This includes all 14 volumes of the original manga and the current volumes of TG:re. Originally, in North America, these digital books would cost $8.99, but with this sale, it is now $6.99 and it will stay like this until April 23. If you like the series and you want to read the manga on the go, take advantage of the sale.

Currently, we have 2 weeks until the movie Avengers: Infinity War is released in theaters. You can see people are hype for this movie because it has been planned out for the last 10 years in the MCU world. The first MCU was Iron Man and excluding this one, the recent film was The Black Panther. I hope you are caught up with everything.

Since this is the only news I have, go and look at memes!
