The Unique Blogger Award

https://yaoiplayground.files.wordpress.com/2017/10/rikdvxx.png?w=440

I am so sorry that I didn’t do this last month, but this time, I want to do this and make it up. I got nominated by Mistress of Yaoi for the Unique Blogger Award. Here is the rules:

These are her questions:

  1. Well I am the Mistress of Yaoi so I have to start here, what introduced you to the world of boys love and Yaoi?

I didn’t do much for Halloween. All I did was rake leaves and ate candy corn and skittles. I also watched a classic movie in Blu-Ray called Casper. I enjoyed this movie as a kid and after watching it again as an adult, it made me feel younger and I did notice the adult content.

Terrible news: Rurouni Kenshin Hokkaido Arc in hiatus because of creator’s crime!

https://i.pinimg.com/736x/1f/6e/b5/1f6eb58102508e47b14a507a2721a9e9--angry-eyes-rurouni-kenshin.jpg

Don’t you hate it when you wake and you get bad news? I do and here is what is going on.

Recently announced today from Shueisha, Jump SQ will not be releasing any Rurouni Kenshin: Hokkaido Arc chapters for a while. As a matter of fact, this series is going to be on indefinite hiatus! If the series is on hiatus in Japan, that means fans in America will also miss out on Kenshin.

Why you may ask?

The reason why the series is on indefinite hiatus is because it is reported by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police that the manga creator Nobuhiro Watsuki is charged for possession of child pornography. According to authorities, Watsuki had more child porn in his office and hidden away recently in October. The porn he had was in DVDs and it was about young girls in early teens. Watsuki comments about it by saying, “liked girls in late elementary school to around the second year of middle school.”

Police also found more in his home which dates back to 2015. For Watsuki’s crime, he is entailed for a year of imprisonment and has to pay a fine of 1 million yen (in USA currency it is $8,800).

Now with this said, Watsuki later expresses his deep sorrow and regrets ever doing the crime. With this crime now, it’s going to be a long time until Rurouni Kenshin: Hokkaido Arc to come back.

 

Game News: Possible crossovers or remakes with Viewtiful Joe, Bayonetta and many more!

Hideki Kamiya, game designer and director of PlatinumGames, revealed some surprising news while being in a interview in Dengeki Playstation in regards to videos games.

“I want to work on a Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe remake, or a true sequel for Okami. A cooperation with Dante (from Devil May Cry) and Bayonetta might also be fun. Dear Capcom, if it’s okay with someone like me, I will help anytime. Best regards. Everyone, bow down your heads together with me!”

In other words, if people are willing to take a chance, Kamiya might bring back Devil May Cry or Viewtiful Joe in HD, a sequel to Okami or even have a crossover with Dante from Devil May Cry and Bayonetta from the Bayonetta series.
Hideki Kamiya is well known for these following games:
  • Resident Evil 2
  • Devil May Cry (2001)
  • Viewtiful Joe 1 and 2
  • Bayonetta
  • Wonderful Hero 101
  • Okami

What do you guys think of the news? Which one would you want to be see done?

For me, I would like to play the Vietiful Joe series again in HD or I would like to play Bayonetta in the crossover.

Friday Funny 135: Unite the League!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Can you believe that next week is going Thanksgiving? Make sure you guys stock on food and if you have too much food, please donate to local charities give any extra canned food or cooked turkey. Before we get there, let me introduce some exciting news. As you may have noticed, today is the movie release of DC superhero team, Justice League. Taking place after the events of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Batman must assemble a team by finding super humans like Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg and together with Wonder Woman, they must fight a mysterious alien threat. Characters from the previous movie like Lois Lane and Lex Luther are expected to come back. According to recent reviews, this movie got mixed reviews but it did better than BvS.

In other news in regards t video games, Square Enix has just released the online expansion to Final Fantasy XV called Comrades. You can create your avatar and work together with players and tackle missions. Speaking of Final Fantasy XV, get ready for 2018 because FFXV main character Noctis Lucis Caelum will be joining in Bandai Namco’s popular fighting game Tekken 7! Also from DC, the recent game Injustice 2 will also be having another quest character to join the fight with superheroes. It is reported that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be joining the game as the next DLC pack for 2018. 2018 is going to be a great year for fighting games.

Don’t forget to check my friend Allie’s blog and read her fan fiction. Let her know what you think and help her to continue writing.

With this said, let’s begin my fellow super friends!

Fighting game news: Turtles in Injustice and Noctis in Tekken 7?

Injustice 2

https://i2.wp.com/gamessec.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/injustice-2-dlc-fighter-pack-3-adds-the-atom-enchantress-and-teenage-mutant-ninja-turtles.jpg

I think most people know about this but here’s a quick recap news. Recently announced, the popular DC fighting game Injustice 2 has revealed another season pack for the game and it will be third. It’s revealed that Atom and Enchantress will participating in the game; however, this is not the big news stirring online. Also joining the game is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Based on what we can assume, players will be able to play as all four turtles and they will be able fight the DC characters, heroes and villains. These are not the characters from a different franchise crossing over in this game. Recently, Raiden from the Mortal Kombat series is in the game as well as Dark Horse comic character Hellboy.

Tekken 7

Tekken 7 will not only be getting Akuma from Capcom Street Fighter but apparently, someone from Square Enix. Final Fantasy XV hero Noctis Lucis Caelum will be joining Tekken 7! Based on the reveal trailer, Noctis will be fighting with his traditional Engine Blade along with his magic. His character will be playable and players will able to unlock arenas from the game such as fighting Hammerhead Repair Shop.

This is not the first time Noctis has encounter a crossover moment. Final Fantasy XV has crossover with Assassin’s Creed Origins with a festival, NieR: Automata with an exclusive Engine Blade weapon, and even Xbox exclusive Forza Horizon 3 with the Regalia.

Both these exclusive characters will be available to play in 2018 during the late winter.

Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades Closed Beta Quick Impressions

As a way to bring hype and attention to the upcoming expansion pack to the popular Final Fantasy XV game and it’s official online mode, I will be talking about my impression to the Closed Beta to Comrades. I am sorry that this is really late and I will try not to waste any time. This impression will be really fast and brief!

In the beginning, in order to get the beta, players must own a copy of Final Fantasy XV, a PS+ or Xbox Live account and got the season pass. Once you get the season pass, players will be gifted to try out the early stages to Comrades. When you first start the game, you are given the choice to be either man or woman; you can later customize your fashion. Once you get done, you will be placed in a server and you will be in a hub where you can interact with the characters and even train your skills. The weapons you get is a fast katana, shuikens, poles and daggers. Once you are ready to play, you go talk to Cor or someone who is there and start the mission. The missions usually involves with either killing a specific Daemon or protecting Cindy on a escort mission.

The Positives

I think it’s pretty cool that Square Enix is adding this new feature to the game. In the past, they have done online games such as Final Fantasy XI and XIV, so they are not new to this. For a beta game, this game wasn’t too difficult to understand. The controls feel exactly like Noctis from the main game and I like being able to still switch weapons. It’s also nice to interact with the side characters like Cindy and Cor and even feel part of the Kingsglaive.

The Negatives

As a beta, I understand things were going to be limited. I didn’t really much of this because the servers in this game wasn’t the best. There was times the game couldn’t find any open lobbies or a strong server and it made me feel like I wasted my time downloading a beta. Like most online complications, the game’s connection with players can have bugs such as lags or delays.

Overall

For being an early stage, this expansion game is pretty well done. The gameplay is no different than playing the main game. I think what’s fun is that you can have players working together and fight as one like game and movie. I also think that once the game is fully finished and polished for the full game, the complications won’t be present as often. I am looking forward to unlocking content for my character and even curious about the story. In my opinion, if you have Final Fantasy XV and you like the game, I would recommend it if you are hyped to play online. I might be jumping into conclusions since this was a beta. Did you play the beta? What is your opinion?

Just a reminder, Final Fantasy XV Multiplayer Expansion: Comrades is expected to be released on November 15th for Xbox One and PS4. If players have the season pass, they will be able to play for free. Based on the recent trailer, the story of online will take place during 10 years where Noctis disappeared into the Crystal. With Noctis sudden disappearance, the rest of the surviving Lucians and Kingsglaive must stand together and fight the Daemons wandering Eos. Along the way, players will be able to encounter Noctis’s friends and they can work together and save Eos in the darkness.

Feel free to buy me a cup of coffee if you feel obliged to show more support!
