Suikoden (game revival)

Image result for suikoden logo

Hey there, Everybody. This is Chris M. I’m sure there are lots of people out there who enjoyed playing the Suikoden games when the series was in its prime. In case you didn’t know, Suikoden is like a cross between Fire Emblem and Jade Empire. But then, the series came to a halt sometime ago and since those days, there were no announcements of a new game. But there is still hope for those who want a new installment in the old series.

I’m planning to make a new fan game that would be a fresh take on Suikoden but remains true to certain parts in the games of old. Are you one of the fans who want to see Suikoden make a comeback?

Mister Rogers and Me

Image result for mr rogers

When I was a small boy, I used to watch the old Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood series on PBS Kids because my Dad was working at a PBS station. When he first met the actor who played Mr. McFeeley, Mr. Newell invited my family to meet Mr. Rogers himself at his studio.

When we got to the office where Fred Rogers worked, I was so excited that I wanted to rush up and hug him, but I kind of tackled him into his sofa. During our visit, he told my Mom that she was very special to have a son like me and that she should be proud. Then we took our picture with Mister Rogers. That was a time when he was getting frail and then later on he passed away.

Since then, we became good friends with Mr. Newell and we’ve been visiting with him at times. I still respect Mister Rogers’ legacy and hope to keep up the good work in the future. Do you enjoy Mister Rogers’ special messages of kindness?

Spider-Man: Far From Home {Movie Review: Spoiler Warning}

Image result for spider man far from home

This review will be a few spoilers:  if you haven’t seen the film, don’t read this review…if you saw the film, read the review.

 

I really enjoyed the film, I like that we get to see Peter moving forward with his life, even though that he misses Tony Stark/Iron Man and confessing his feelings to Michelle “MJ”. 

 

My favorite scenes that I did not expect is Quentin Beck aka Mysterio, who is a former employee of Stark Industries…it was revealed that Beck created B.A.R.F., a prototype system that was introduced in Captain America: Civil War and another character who encountered with Obadiah Stane from the first Iron Man, comes back, he works with Beck. the visual effects were stunning, the scene where Mysterio using the illusions to trap Peter, messing with his mind. One part in the illusion scene is when a Zombie Iron Man crawling towards Peter: that scene was a surprise and shocking.

 

There were a few moments in the film, the friendship between Peter and Ned was great: hope we get to see their friendship continue in the next film. The final battle was an amazing scene. 

 

2 scenes that was a surprise and a game-changer: Peter, MJ and the whole people of New York, watches the news report that featured a doctored footage recorded by Beck, during the battle of London. but that’s not all: the video was released by the controversial news website: The Daily Bugle.Net, the one and only…J. Jonah Jameson played by J.K. Simmons. Here’s the real blockbuster: Beck reveals Spider-Man’s secret identity, it had Peter in a mind blown shock.

 

This is the first time seeing J.K. Simmons’ J. Jonah Jameson in the MCU, hope we get to see more J. Jonah Jameson.

 

Another scene is that former S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury and former S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Maria Hill are revealed to be Skrull’ Talos and Skrull’ Soren, who has been impersonating the real Nick Fury and real Maria Hill, also it was revealed that the real Nick Fury is on ‘vacation’ on a Skrull spaceship.

 

After watching the movie. There’s a lot of questions to be answered is what will happen to Peter, now that the world knows he’s Spider-Man and whatever happened to the real Maria Hill, while the real Nick Fury is on a Skrull spaceship.

 

Could this mean that one of the characters are secretly a Skrull, but will find out in the upcoming Marvel films in the future.
