JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: Eyes of Heaven game review

Published by Bandai Namco of Entertainment and developed by CyberConnect2 (they also worked on the Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm series), we get another JoJo Bizarre Adventure video game and unlike the previous game on the PS3 JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures: All-Star Battles, this game will not have players buy any DLCs. I got this game from a flash sale with a price of $15; the retail price is about $60. In the PSN store, this game title has the world bundle. That is because in the North America version, this digital game includes the game itself and all the DLC such as additional missions and Jotaro Kujo Part 4 version. In this review, this will contain spoiler but only minor. The spoilers will occur in the story and I will do my best to not give away too much details.

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). This game will include the past Kingdom Hearts that was previously included for the PS3 but now it will be on PS4. The graphics are enhanced with 60 FPS.
