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.

Spider-Man game news: Can’t pre-order for DLC costumes? No Problem!

If you thought the news of the release date for the game Marvel’s Spider-Man was great, it is getting better!

According to the video game site DualShockers, Insomniac Games (creator of Ratchet and Clank, Spider-Man and formerly Spyro the Dragon) commented and revealed that the pre-order DLC for costumes will be in the game even if you can’t pre-order. Meaning, if you are unable to pre-order to get the suits like the Spider-Punk suit, you can still get it by playing the game. Yuri Lowenthal (voice actor of anime characters like Sasuke from Naruto) revealed that he will be voicing Spider-Man regardless to any suit.

The DLC story “The Story That Never Sleeps”; however, will be available as a DLC story individually. People who pre-order the game from Collector’s or Digital Deluxe will be able to play this three chapter story for free. To those who won’t buy the Collector’s Set or Digital Deluxe, you can simply pay for the DLC separate. Currently, there is no news for a season pass or price of the DLC story.

My Current Pop Funko collection thus far

You probably seen this in hobby stores or game stores like GameStop, Box Lunch or even Hot Topic. They are called Pop figures and thanks to the company Funko, many characters from video games, cartoons, anime, comics and other pop culture genre have been converted to these bobble head like figures. Some actually are bobble heads while others just have a stiff head. Think of these as the bobble heads from sports like the NFL and NBA, but instead of collecting your favorite athletes, you’re collecting your favorite characters from Marvel, Dragon Ball, Batman or even Rugrats. I will be sharing you my collection and I will give you a brief description about how I got them.

Surprise Marvel news: Tony Stark actor wants Infinity War on April instead of May

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.

Spider-Man (2017 TV series) season 1 spoiler-free review

Wikipedia synopsis:

After the death of his Uncle Ben, an intelligent teenager named Peter Parker comes to his own terms of becoming a masked superhero named Spider-Man when he was bitten by a radioactive spider during a school field trip to Oscorp and given spider-like powers.

IMDb synopsis:

An insecure but courageous and intelligent teen named Peter Parker, a new student of Midtown High, is bitten by a radioactive spider and given powers. He becomes a hero named Spider-Man after the death of his uncle and he must adapt to this new way of life.

Since I couldn’t find a good synopsis, I added these two from different sites, but I will also try to give one made by myself with some background information.

Background: Back to basics

This Spider-Man cartoon (I usually call it Spider-Man 2017 since it debuted on TV in 2017), is a new Spider-Man series that replaced the previous running series Ultimate Spider-Man. As Ultimate Spider-Man ended and with the popularity of the movie Spider-Man: Homecoming, it was time for Marvel and Disney to try and create a new series focusing on webhead. To help promote the series and make people easily jump into Spider-Man, Marvel and Disney XD released a six part short titled Origins on YouTube which revealed the origin to Peter Parker’s beginning of Spider-Man. I won’t go into details and if you want to know my opinion on Origins and the first episodes, check it out here on the hyperlink.

My Experience on Spider-Man cartoons

If anyone knows about me, my favorite Marvel hero is Spider-Man. I like the character and his powers and the enemies in the stories, whether it is from the movies, comics or video games. My memory is vague, but I think the only Spider-Man cartoons I seen as a kid was Spider-Man and the Amazing Friends and the fan favorite Spider-Man the Animated Series.

I didn’t get experience other cartoons such as the MTV Spider-Man The New Animated Series (AKA Spider-Man MTV), Spider-Man: Unlimited or everyone’s favorite The Spectacular Spider-Man. I am not sure for myself, but based on what I hear, The Spectacular Spider show that even though it looks like it was designed for kids, it had elements that even adults would like and it combined versions like the Sam Raimi’s movies and the early 1960s comics.

https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/spiderman/images/0/07/Earth-26496.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20130203075243

I did try their previous show Ultimate Spider-Man, but I ended up dropping it. Ultimate Spider-Man was the Spectacular Spider-Man’s replacement after it got cancelled. Ultimate Spider-Man took a kid friendly approach to the the Ultimate comics and the show wanted Spider-Man to interact with other Marvel characters and the themes could be somewhat similar to Avengers cartoons. The reason why I dropped it because it wasn’t because it was kid friendly and silly, I felt it wasn’t a “Spider-Man” cartoon. There would be episodes where Spider-Man would either be solo in his adventures or team up with members of Shield; in a way, it felt like it was trying to be like an Avengers version of Spider-Man.

When I first heard about this show, I was a bit iffy, but then when I heard Robbie Daymond (voice of Prompto from Final Fantasy XV or Masked Tuxedo in the new dub for Sailor Moon) and Max Mittleman (voice of Saitama from One-Punch Man) was going to be in this show, I decided to jump into the series. Anyway, sorry for delaying this review, I am going to try and explain my thoughts on this show’s season and if it’s worth it.

Friday Funny 148: Go kitty cat go!

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to Friday Funny. I hope everyone is doing okay. I hope everyone also had a good Valentines Day. I am happy to see couples be happy together and even though I am still single, I wasn’t sad to see myself lonely. Anyway, in this post I want to talk about a movie is already out and it’s already getting great reviews. As a way to start 2018, Marvel will be premiering the MCU movie The Black Panther. The Black Panther is a Marvel superhero that is well-known in the comic books in the Avengers, his interaction with the Fantastic Four and according to Shay from Anime Reviewer Girl, the Black Panther is the husband to the X-Men mutant Storm. In this movie, we get to see T’Challa rule over Wakanda after the death of his father. T’Challa is the king of Wakanda and he is geared up with powerful technology like vibranium and his Black Panther suit. With all this gear, he must fight to protect his country from enemies that wants to take his throne. In a nutshell who he is, think of him as Batman; a guy in a black suit inspired by animal and has tons of money and technology, and the death of his father resembles something from Lion King. If you didn’t know, the Black Panther made his movie appearance in the movie Captain America: Civil War along with the debut of Spider-Man. The Black Panther will take place after Civil War and before the Avengers: Infinity War. As usual, if you plan to watch the movie, stay after the credits!!!

Also, I hope you guys saw the trailer for the Incredibles 2. The characters are back and we have the father, Bob Parr, staying home and taking care of the kids while the wife is able to be a superhero.
