Final Fantasy XV (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Final Fantasy XV for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. This game was first released in 2016 and features both an open-world environment as well as an action-based battle system which involves the concept of quick-switching weapons as well as the use of elemental magic. This game also features the concepts of both vehicle travel and camping.

The storyline of Final Fantasy XV takes place on the fictional world of Eos and follows the exploits of the Lucian prince, Noctis Lucis Caelum. Aside from Insomnia: the capital of Lucis, the whole entire world is dominated by the empire of Niflheim. Niflheim seeks control of the magical Crystal that is protected by the Lucian royal family. On the eve of peace negotiations, Niflheim attacks the capital city of Lucis and steals the Crystal. Noctis Lucis Caelum, the Lucian prince and heir to the throne of Insomnia goes on a quest to rescue the Crystal and defeat Niflheim. He later learns his full role as the “True King” as he is destined to use the Crystal’s powers to save Eos from the “Eternal Darkness” known as Starscourge.

In conclusion, I found this game to truly live up to its reputation of being one of the best-selling Final Fantasy games of all time. This fact comes as no surprise due to the game having sold 10 million units worldwide back in May 2022.


The Meaning Behind Coins on Military Graves

Seeds Student, Mark R selected this thoughtful article on the meaning behind placing coins on military graves to share in honor of Memorial Day.

The Meaning Behind Coins on Military Graves

Memorial day is time to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom

Placing a coin on the headstone of a service member or a veteran is a show of respect and honor, as well as letting the deceased service member’s family know someone was there, but the denomination of the coins each has a distinct and significant meaning. Here is the breakdown:

A penny: This means someone has visited the grave

A nickel this signifies that the visitor served with the deceased service member at bootcamp.

A dime: a dime means the visitor and deceased service member served together at some point.

A quarter Be prepared to have some tissue on hand when you see this denomination on headstone this coin is left by someone who physically with service member when he or she died.

5 Other Ways to Honor the Fallen This Memorial Day
Attend an event or parade: Communities across the nation organize events and parades to honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Join a local event or attend a parade to show respect and let the families of the fallen know their loved one is not forgotten.
Fly the U.S. flag. If you haven’t already, put out the flag as a symbol of patriotism. According to the VA, on Memorial Day, the flag should be flown at half-staff from sunrise until noon, then raised to the top of the staff until sunset.
Wear or display a red poppy. The colorful flower is a symbol of remembrance that dates back to World War I. The tradition got its start thanks to a poem by WWI brigade surgeon John McCrae. Veterans of Foreign Wars conducted its first nationwide poppy distribution ahead of Memorial Day in 1922, a tradition that continues today.
Post a Tribute: Honor a late veteran you know by posting a tribute to the Veterans Legacy Memorial. The VA-connected website is “dedicated to the memory of the nearly 4.5 million veterans interred in VA national cemeteries.” The site allows visitors to search for a specific veteran and leave photos, tributes, and memories in their honor.
Spend time with family and friends. What better way to honor those who fought and died for our freedoms than enjoying the moments their sacrifice provided us? Sharing the day with those you love and care about the most is a great way to say “thank you” to these fallen heroes who can’t with their families and friends so that we can be with ours.

Best Villain Outfits by Anna P


 I hate this character, especially what she does to her daughters. She is just a terrible  mother but a great villain and has a great fashion sense. Which makes sense since Kill la Kill is a show about sentient clothing so fashion is a big deal for the character and she has many iconic outfits. I love them all equally. Her having a very colorful rainbow colored outfit despite being a villain is really interesting too. I want her hair

Poison Ivy has some of the best villain outfits because they all involve her powers plants and the color green. She literally wears her power which is to control plants.

Harley Quinn but only the original outfits she appear in the animated series to me all the others outfits she wears are too trashy don’t fit into her theme of an Harley Quinn joker sidekick character 

Ok technically the show has not yet come out yet and we really don’t even know if he will be a villain in the show yet but come on he is lucifer and has a great outfit I have to put him on here the apple like the one in Eden and suit chefs kiss.

Tom & Jerry: Robin Hood and his Merry Mouse (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the animated movie, Tom & Jerry: Robin Hood and his Merry Mouse. This movie is a parody of the historical & heroic adventures of Robin Hood.

In this movie,

Jerry Mouse joins Robin Hood as his capable sidekick, helping Robin Hood and his Merry Men to steal from the rich and give to the poor. The evil Prince John and his associates, The Sheriff of Nottingham and Tom Cat plot to bring them all down.

In conclusion, I found this Tom & Jerry parody to be “heroically entertaining”, yet “historically humorous.” Metaphorically speaking in vigilante terms of course.

Transformers! Bumblebee (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the 6th live-action Transformers film, Bumblebee. This movie was released on December 3, 2018.

On the run in the year 1987, the Autobot known as Bumblebee searches for a safe haven on earth. He ultimately takes refuge at a junkyard that is located in a small California beach town. But soon after that, Charlie Watson, who is on the verge of turning 18 years old as well as trying to find her place in the world discovers Bumblebee (who is currently battle-scarred & broken) and fixes him right up. She quickly learns though that bumblebee is in fact no ordinary Volkswagen.

The Autobots in this movie are

Bumblebee (Scout)(Vehicle Modes: a yellow 1984 Willys MB Jeep/ a yellow 1967 Volkswagen Beetle/a yellow & black 1977 Chevrolet Camaro),

Optimus Prime (Leader)(Vehicle Mode: a 1987 Freightliner FLA semi-truck),

Arcee (Communications Officer),

Wheeljack (Scientist/Engineer/Inventor),

Brawn (Commando),

Soundwave (Communications Officer).

In conclusion, I found this movie to be very informative in the concepts of Transformers lore. For example, this movie reveals how Bumblebee’s voice box gets damaged thus resulting in the loss of his voice.

  Why I Want a Pet Cat by Anna P

I want a pet cat. I long to have a pet cat. There are many reasons for this. One reason is they are a lot easier to take care of than dogs. Let me ask you this: do you take a cat on a walk with a leash?  I bet you said no – that’s because you don’t! Easy peasy with exercise with a cat all I need is a flashlight or a laser pointer. With dogs you can’t do that with them and it’s actually bad for them, but cats on the other hand it’s ok and helps with boredom. I have autism and guess what studies suggest since cats are calmer and quieter there better for people with autism. Note, no diss to dogs. I have a puppy that I love very much. She is my poptart. Also, cats are just awesome animals with retractable claws, amazing reflexes and like the mythology that goes with them in many stories like the Bast the Egyptian cat goddess. I love ancient Egypt and they worshiped cats there. Or in Japan white cats were lucky and the many Yokai cats like Nekomata which is a cat with two tails. Now, let’s talk about what cat I want. Now any cat is fine for me, but if I had a choice to choose from a breed, I would want a Maine coon. There are huge cats and they look so beautiful  even if they are from cursed Maine. Stephen King’s drinking game taught me to fear that place. Also I have a pet dog who is small but still larger than most cats, however a Maine coon could teach my dog a lesson if ever tried anything.
