My birthday gifts

Here is another short post.

Besides the stuff I bought from Little Tokyo, I got some gifts from my  family and I want to share some pictures for you guys on what I got for my birthday.

My younger brother got me a Marvel t-shirt, my sister and her husband got me two Pokemon shirts and my parents got me a Mortal Kombat shirt. They also got me the Final Fantasy XV – Piano Collection.

I also got some money from my grandparents. I used some gift money and purchased some Kingdom Hearts goods from Hot Topic: a lanyard and an exclusive Donald Duck Pop Funko figure.

My mom, who works in Scentsy, also got me a new burner and the burner is designed to look like stacked stones. I have  a habit of stacking stones whenever I go to the beach and my mom got me this candle. Scentsy is a company that sells lamps that burns and create fresh scents from burning wax, scented candles to be exact. It looks like this:

Whenever I try to stack stones, I feel like Smoker from One Piece.

I also got to download the dlc to Final Fantasy XV, Episode Gladiolus. I still need to finish the story, but I did play Chapter 13, verse 2 with Gladio. Gladio is a strong fighter and I enjoyed seeing his story.

To end this post, I will let Donald and Kirito say good bye.

Kirito: Good bye everyone. Thanks for the love for Matthew.

Donald: Bye! Bye! Come back real soon. You made Matt  a very happy boy.

Thank you guys for the nice comments and messages. God bless you all.

Happy Birthday to me! – A Special Top 10 posts and Personal Shout-Outs!

Hello everyone, this is yours truly Matthew of Matt-in-the-Hat, and today is a special day because today it’s my birthday! Today I turn 23 and I have been waiting for a long time to reach this number. As a way to start this post, I will be doing a special top 10 posts but with a twist. If you guys know me enough, you would know that I have a gaming obsession with Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts. For this top 10, this will actually be divided into top 5s instead but in the end, it will be 10. Also, there is no particular order. Here is the reason behind this. Also, I will be doing personal shout-outs!

Today is the DLC add-on to the game Final Fantasy XV, Episode Gladioulus. In this episode, players will be playing as Noctis’s friend Gladiolus and they will experience what is like to play as the strongest man of the group. Taking place after facing Ravus, Gladiolus leaves the party and tries to obtain new skills. With the help of Cor, Gladio will be fighting daemons and he will have to face the ultimate challenger, Gilgamesh. If players bought the season pass, this episode is free; otherwise, you will have to pay $5.

Also coming out today is the release of of the HD collection game Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX, (in the UK, this game comes out on March 31st).

Final Fantasy XV DLC Review: Holiday and Booster Pack

In this review, I will be talking about the recent DLC packs for the game Final Fantasy XV. Final Fantasy XV is a game filled with an amazing story and cast of characters Square Enix wants to continue to make this game even more fun for players by adding exclusive items and content for players. Some are fun to play while others help add a challenge or support to the story. Besides the single DLC like Reglia Decal skins or weapons, Square Enix recently released two DLC packs with a certain amount of content. The first one is called the Holiday Pack and the second is the Booster Pack. They are free DLCs but if you bought the season pass, players will receive exclusive items (If you got the season pass, players will be able to download the packs with plus sign on the side e.g. Booster Pack +). I bought the season pass and I will be going over each pack.

Video Game Tag

8127a1d933f425f64eebd6427adc1a1a

I want to thank Gamers UnitedGG Blog for tagging me for this video game tag. Unlike most tag posts, I will be sharing you my video game side. Besides watching anime and watching movies, I love to video games. Once you are done, go check out their blogs for more video game posts and nerd topics.

Rules:

  • Thank & Tag the Blogger
  • Answer the Questions
  • Tag Other Bloggers (Your choice on the number of challengers)

Questions:

  • What is your favorite video game genre (I.E. RPG, FPS, MMO, etc.).

I like video games such as action adventure series and with a great story. Games like Final Fantasy XV, Kingdom Hearts, Batman Arkham games are my type of games. I like games where I feel like I am hero and part of an epic story.

  • Which system do you prefer to game on?

Currently Playstation 4. I like the Nintendo games and systems but I mostly play Playstation games. I am part Sony and Nintendo.

  • Who is your favorite video game character?

I think my favorite character would be Noctis Lucis Caelum from Final Fantasy XV. Noctis is an awesome main character with awesome abilities. He is also a cool chilled guy who also cares about his friends. I also respect him and sympathize him on his duties in the game.

  • Which game do you believe has the best plot?

I think the game with the best story would be the Batman Arkham games ( I haven’t played Origins). I enjoyed interacting with the characters, good and evil, and feeling like I am Batman.

Personally

  • What game gave the most hype but didn’t deliver?

Personally, the one game that got too much hype was Sonic the Hedgehog 2006. Back when the PS3 and Xbox 360 were barely released and when E3 released the trailer for Sonic 06, my friends in school were all excited to play the game. Unfortunately, once I got a PS3 and got this game, I was disappointed. The game was awful.

  • What game are you waiting for?

Currently, I am waiting for Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy VII Remake.

  • If you were taken to an island and  forced to only play 3 games, which 3 games would you choose?

The three games I would be willing to play would Sonic Adventure 2: Battle, Final Fantasy XV and Transformers: Devastation.

  • Which games do you feel have the best replay value,

I am already fanboy and everyone knows what I will say but I think Final Fantasy XV has the best replay value. The game has a huge open world environment and it has many missions and items ready to be explored. You can also fish for all kinds of fish or help Ignis collect recipes.

  • Name 1 Game that you think everyone should play?

I say either the Uncharted games, or Kingdom Hearts series. They both have a likeable main characters and the gameplay is pretty easy to follow.

  • What game did you grow up on?

I think I grew up playing the classic Super Mario Bros on the NES and Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Game Gear.

  • Which game would you like to see come back?

In my opinion, I feel like Jak and Daxter should come back. I really like Naughty Dog’s games and after hearing Crash Bandicoot coming back for this year, I was hyped. It stinks even after years, they are still making Ratchet and Clank games but Jack and Daxter games.

TGIF Friday Funny 93: I Summon Mega Ultra Chicken!

TGIF!

(The title is a joke from Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged)

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back for another episode of TGIF Friday Funny. In this post, I am here to bring laugh and joy and time to bring you some funny content and news! Today is the English Dub movie release of the classic anime and new movie Yu-Gi-Oh!: The Dark Side of Dimensions. This is the third Yu-Gi-Oh! movie and once again, the classic voice actors are back to play their roles.  If you are looking into watching a movie and don’t want to watch Monster Truck, check out this classic anime. Yu-Gi-Oh! is my favorite along with Pokemon.

Also happening this week is the official release to Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Prologue Chapter. In this game, KH II.8 collects three games in which connects and leads to upcoming game Kingdom Hearts III. Square Enix also released a free DLC for players who have World of Final Fantasy. Players will receive the chibi version of Sora as a partner. But there’s more, if you are like me and don’t have the games but you have Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix recently released an update where players who downloaded the free Festive Pack will be able to participate in the Moogle Chocobo Carnival! Players can minigames, obtain outfit like clothing, and exclusive frames and also take pictures without Prompto needed. It’s super fun! Hurry because it’s not permanent. Square also released more DLC such as car decals like 16-bit characters and a Cindy themed decal for the Regalia. They also released weapons from past FF titles to help Noctis fight such as Lightning’s signature weapons from Final Fantasy XIII.

This week has been filled with Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts ad Yu-Gi-Oh lately! Don’t forget to check out the OWLS blog tours from members like Naja, Pink, and Takuto. With this said, let’s have some fun!

TGIF Friday Funny 84: Reclaim the Throne

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Hello everyone and happy Friday. This is Matthew and even though Thanksgiving was Thursday, I wish to say Happy Thanksgiving. I hope everyone had a wonderful day and got to spend time with their love ones. This is one of those times where you can eat as much food you want without worrying about eating too much or getting fat XD. This is an important holiday in the United States because we remember what are we thankful for and acknowledge what is important. In my Christian beliefs, we thank God for providing a home to live and thank for the blessings God has given us. I will say that I am thankful for my family providing me and helping me through life, I am thankful for God who never left me and always kept me safe, and finally, I am thankful for all my friends who didn’t leave me and supported me. Thank you everyone!

Judging by this title and this meme I made recently, you can tell what’s happening this next week. After this weekend, the long awaited Square Enix game Final Fantasy XV will be released globally on November 29. This game is available for PS4 and Xbox One. In this game, players will play as the Noctis and with his friends, they must save his kingdom from the enemy forces of Niflheim. To increase this hype, check out my related posts. Check out my review on the Platinum Demo or the anime prequel Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV. Also, check out my gameplay of the Platinum Demo if you are interested:

If you are not planing to get this game because you’re spending time with Pokemon Sun and Moon or just not into this, I got better news. Anime sites like Rightstuf, Amazon and Sentai Filmworks are slashing down prices on their select anime titles for the holiday season. If you plan to shop for anime DVDs for Black Friday, Cyber Monday or just the whole month of December, check these places and spend on some anime goods!

Last but not least, another Shonen Jump titles ended this week. The action-adventure food series Toriko is over. This year is the end of another Shonen Jump titles. Nisekoi ended, Bleach is done and now Toriko is over. Don’t forget to buy the manga and experience the action of fighting animals and eating food.

With all this said, let’s being this tasty post!

The trailer reveals the return of veteran singer Utada Hikaru with a new remix song of Simple and Clean. The song is called “Simple and Clean – Ray of Hope MIX”.

3. Kingdom Hearts III

After for being quiet for a long time, Square Enix shared some pictures on Tweeter of new screenshots of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts III. Based on the images, Sora will be fighting the Heartless what appears to be Mount Olympus from the movie Hercules. Also appearing on the images s the return of the Drive Forms. If you don’t know what it is, Drive Forms is a special ability where Sora can increase his powers and change his clothes by borrowing powers from his friends. Based on the screenshots, Sora will be able to transform his keyblade into a shield and probably what appears to be a hammer.

Gaming News: Final Fantasy XV Delayed for November

Already confirmed online today and rumored yesterday in my Twitter Feed, Square Enix confirmed that the upcoming video game Final Fantasy XV will be delayed. The game will be released on November 29, instead of September 30. Game directer Hajime Tabata, in a video he posted, states that the game needed more time to allow players to play the game in the highest quality. He states that the Master Version is finished but he and his want wants to create a Day-One Patch and in order to play without issues, they need more time. He states also that he is hoping to bring in more DLC and patches to the game.

What do you guys think about this news?

Personally, at first I was disappointed because we had to wait again until the game gets released. However, on the positive notes, this will allow people to have more time to preorder the game. This will also how the creators to deal with glitches or any other issues dealing with the game. A delayed game is better than a rushed game.

In past news, Final Fantasy XV is already planned for DLCs such as a season pass and a Premium Digital Edition. The Premium Digital Edition will include a digital copy of the game and the DLC for $89.99. The regular season pass is about $25 and it will include special episodes of the characters like Prompto, Ignis, and Gladiolus.

August 19th is also the film release of Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV.
