If you think Tony Stark is a fictional character, you might be wrong because he did something unexpected today.

Revealed in a Twitter chat with Marvel, Robert Downy Jr (actor who plays as Tony Stark/Iron Man)had a fun-friendly chat with Marvel and ask if it’s possible to watch the upcoming Avengers movie “Avengers: Infinity War” earlier than expected. Surprisingly, they did! Rather than having the movie be released in theaters on May 4th, the movie will be on April 27th, a week earlier! Mark your calendars and cancel your plans!

According to Forbes, this is actually a good thing because this will give movies on May a chance to shine. On May, we have the sequel to Fox’s Marvel movie Deadpool 2 and a side story to the Star Wars Franchise, Solo: A Star Wars Story. Solo: A Star Wars Story is set to premier on theaters on May 25th. Deadpool 2 comes out on May 18th.

Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Limited Edition unboxing review

Better than never I always say. This is another unboxing posts and it will be super short. This post will be covering the limited edition version to the recent Square Enix game Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Limited Edition. This game came out on January 24 but since I preordered online, I got this game on Saturday, January 28th. People ordered the Limited Edition receives the game in different cover box and an exclusive Disney Pin.

On the cover of the box, the cover is displayed with the game’s title along with simple patterns and symbols. The game also includes the actual hard case of the standard game with the characters on it. Unlike my Deluxe Edition to the Final Fantasy XV game, the box was cardboard or one of those plastic boxes; it has some bends and it was not a steelbook case. The pin was pretty to cool have. It was very small and it was my first pin I ever got.

Overall

The Limited Edition pretty cool to have especially if you are a Disney fanatic. If you are pin lover, this is a must have and if you want to own a second pin to the previous one if you preoredered Kingdom Hearts HD. 2.5 Remix. If you are not much pin fan, you are better off just buying the standard game. Getting this edition doesn’t come with any dlcs not even an artbook like 1.5. If you want this game, you better off with the standard.

TGIF Friday Funny 92: May your hearts be your guiding key

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of TGIF Friday Funny. This is Matthew and I am back with more funny pictures. In this episode I want to dedicate this to another popular game series. The same company who did Final Fantasy XV is back with another game but it’s not Final Fantasy. Along with Final Fantasy, the popular series Kingdom Hearts is back with a new collection game and this is one is different than the previous collections. The new game is Kingdom Hearts HD II.8: Final Chapter Prologue. The game is expected to come out on January 24th for PS4 only.

This game includes he following:

Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD: An HD remake to the 3DS game Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. The game will be on the PS4 under the title Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance HD. A game where the story takes place after KHII and Sora and Riku enter the Sleeping Worlds and enter the Mark of Mastery to become Keyblade Masters.

Kingdom Hearts x Back Cover: Told through cinematic cutscenes, this part of the story takes place before Kingdom Hearts begins and tells the story through the eyes of Keyblade Masters and bearers. This story shapes the future of the Kingdom Hearts story.

Kingdom Hearts 0.2: Birth by Sleep – A Fragmentary Passage: Taking place after the events of Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep, Keyblade master Aqua is still trapped in the Realm of Darkness for 10 years. Players will play as Aqua and dwell through the darkness and fight the Heartless and escape.

This is what the game collection will have. KH2.8 will serve as a prologue to the upcoming anticipated game Kingdom Hearts III. Like any other fan, I am excited to play this game. I already reserved my copy for the Limited Edition game and I bought the new soundtrack of Simple and Clean by Utada Hikaru. The soundtrack is called Simple and Clean (Ray of Hope Mix).

Evangelion

It has been a long time since we heard the Evangelion anime. In a interview with UK Anime Network, animator director Takeshi Honda mentions that they have recently started to work on the final Evangelion movie this October. In his words, this is what he said:

“We’re actually working on the new Evangelion film right now. We’re working hard and it’ll come out eventually, so thanks for all of your patience – please continue to be patient, because it’s going to be the last episode.”

In a comment in a another interview, he is hoping that this last film will officially conclude Evangelion and also retire. It is hard for him to draw as he gets older.

In old news, anime director Hideaki Anno mentioned that he will be doing the last Evangelion once he has finished with the movie Shin Godzilla.
