Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview the upcoming game Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age.

 

Originally Released for the PS2 on March 16, 2006, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age has been officially remastered for the PS4.

 

The main protagonists of this game are Vaan (Rebel Orphan)(Swords/Greatswords), Ashe (Dalmascan princess) (Katanas), Basch (Knight) (Swords/Spears), Balthier (Sky Pirate) (Guns), Fran(Viera) (Bows), Penelo (Vaan’s Childhood Friend) (Staffs).

 

The main antagonists of this game are Vayne (Archadian prince) and Gabranth  (Basch twin brother/Archadian judge)(Twin Swords).

 

An example of this game’s story is that the Archadian empire is waging war in an ongoing attempt towards world domination, thus resulting in the deaths of Reks (Dalmascan soldier/Vaan’s older brother), Rasler (Nabudisian prince/Ashe’s husband) and Raminas  (Dalmascan king/Ashe’s father).

 

In conclusion, I believe this game will be a bigger hit than its PS2 counterpart and is scheduled for release on July 11, 2017.

What SEEDS means to me

What Seeds means to me

2/16: At the time of writing this I have been working at SEEDS FOR AUTISM for over a year. During this time I’ve come out of my shell a lot. In High School I was always the quiet person in class that wouldn’t talk anyone and no one would even try to talk to me. I did have a couple of friends from Middle and Elementary school that I would hang out with at lunch and on the bus, but we didn’t have any classes together. I secretly felt kind of lonely but was to afraid to actually talk to new people. After I graduated, my family took me to a job/program/school fair where SEEDS had a booth. It seemed interesting, so that summer I signed up for the summer program -and it was a lot of fun. I met some nice people who I became acquaintances with, but I still didn’t feel at home/comfortable yet. Then in December, I joined the official SEEDs program. I was still pretty nervous, until someone who also works at SEEDS said he remembered me from the summer program and welcomed me into the SEEDS family. I felt bad because I didn’t remember him.  After a while though we became good friends and still are. I started talking about similar interests, things that are on my mind, how life is going, and now I have many new friends! Now I feel like I can make friends, share what I have to say, and I am slightly more confident. I am now truly part of the SEEDS family!

5/25: Today I am leaving SEEDS, I still feel the same as I did when I wrote the paragraph above. I am leaving because SEEDS has given me confidence to follow a new opportunity. I will miss all of my friends and all of my instructors very much, but it’s time to move forward with my life, and SEEDS FOR AUTISM has given me the knowledge to do so successfully. I have learned skills and made things here that I never thought I would ever be able to. I am very grateful for SEEDS FOR AUTISM and everyone here for helping me with so much. The only thing I can say now is, thank you!

Disney Magical World 2 (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles & I’m here to review the Nintendo 3DS game Disney Magical World 2.

 

This game is the 2016 sequel to the 2014 3DS game Disney Magical World with even more Disney worlds and characters to encounter, assist and spend time with.

 

The game takes place in a magical town called Castleton where you not only manage a cafe near favorable Disney characters such as Mickey, but you also can travel to six Disney worlds.

 

The six disney worlds are comprised of Disney’s Frozen, The Little Mermaid, Lilo & Stitch, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs and Winnie the Pooh.

 

Throughout this game, you discover ghostly beings of unknown origins are invading Castleton as well as all six Disney worlds and you must use special magic wands to use Disney magic to deal with them.

 

In each of the six Disney worlds you can attend Anna & Elsa’s Snowman Festival, have adventures as a mermaid/merman under the sea with Ariel, mine for gems with the Seven Dwarfs, surf and hula with Lilo & Stitch, help tackle trouble in Wonderland and have fun both farming and hanging out with Winnie the Pooh & friends.

In conclusion, I find this game truly Enchanting and am certain of it to be one of the embodiments of disney’s greatest magics.

Transformers: The Last Knight(Preview)

 

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview the upcoming movie Transformers: The Last Knight.

 

This is the 5th live-action Transformers movie as well as the final film in the Transformers franchise.

 

The cast of Transformers: The Last Knight consists of Optimus Prime(Autobot Leader), Bumblebee(Autobot Scout), Hound(Autobot Commando/Field Medic), Drift(Autobot Tactician/Samurai), Megatron(Decepticon Leader) and Grimlock(Dinobot Leader).

 

Also, this movie introduces us to both Optimus Prime’s Creators and HotRod(Bumblebee’s French accented brother-in-arms) as well as reintroduces us to Barricade(Decepticon Scout) from the 1st Transformers movie.
In conclusion, I personally believe this movie will bring a climatic finish to the Transformers film franchise as well as teach us how important it is to value everyone’s existence and not just your own.

Justice League(2017)(Preview)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview the upcoming 2017 movie Justice League.

This movie takes place months after the events of the movie Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

where Bruce Wayne(Batman) and Diana Prince(Wonder Woman) form a team of superpowered Meta-Humans

comprised of themselves plus Arthur Curry(Aquaman), Barry Allen(Flash) and Victor Stone(Cyborg)

to defend the Earth from the Apokoliptian General Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons as the Justice League.

General Steppenwolf seeks three MotherBoxes residing on Earth. One of which is currently merged with Cyborg,

both making up his physical form as well as giving him his cybernetic powers. MotherBoxes are powerful cubed Minicomputers So intelligent that they’re almost alive.

General Steppenwolf comes from the planet Apokolips, which is a dictatorial world brimming with FirePits

that is ruled by General Steppenwolf’s nephew known as the omnipotent Darkseid. In conclusion, this movie I believe will be as big a hit as the 2012 film: Marvel’s The Avengers and is due to IMAX theatres on November 17, 2017.

The lost, little guinea pig.

 

Hi! My name is Max and,I know what you’re thinking, he’s a tiny, young, abandoned little pet with no collar. Now, Im waiting for the pet shop to open up their doors. A life on the run isn’t always what I wanted. I had it good until my stupid cage mate wanted to dare me to see how high I could jump on the trampoline and touch the top of the cage. Now, you’re probably wondering why did you take the dare in the first place? And you would be correct! But let’s start at the beginning. The day of my birth. My parents were the greatest. I was born in a rescue mission in Australia. Back then, you didn’t have rules, there was only a preserve, the den, my parents and me. Every couple of months a lucky little guy got to be picked out to become a candidate for adoption. You know who got picked out this time? It wasn’t me. It wasn’t my parents. It was always some other guinea pig that was fatter, cuter, fluffier and overall better looking. That was my life. I had everything I ever wanted; Food, shelter and loving parents that looked out for me. Then one day, I decided to ask mom and dad if I could take a walk outside my den. “ I don’t know sweetie” my mother said. “I promise, I’ll be careful”. “I would like to go and follow whatever that noise is that I hear every day” “you mean the human pets?” his mother replied? “Yes, so that’s what I hear” said the guinea pig uhmm… honey are you ok?” said his mother. “ Life is nice inside a rescue shelter but, if only I could see what’s beyond the grassy plain” he said. “But sweetie, you are-WE-are safe in our home. Besides there are hungry animals that would love nothing more than snacking on a plump, young, juicy guinea pig.”  “Now, go to sleep.” Our inspection is tomorrow and you may be picked out by a nice family.” she replied. “Ok…. mother” Later that night, I was sleeping when I had a dream. I was following a trail of cookie crumbs to what knows where and it led to a giant cookie on top of a mountain. Beyond, I could hear a voice calling me. “Come, join us; we have more cookies” more cookies…cookies….coookkkkiiiiessss………………………………………………………………….”Cock a doodle doo! I awoke the next morning . “Mom! Dad!” I had this really weird dream last night”. I was following these cookie crumbs and this voice kept saying ‘“come,join us we have more cookies”’! Then a giant cookie on top of a mountain!” Outside a guard was eating a snack and leaving crumbs behind as he walked back to his shift.” It looked like-” I looked around for a good example to tell them. “It looked like that” He pointed to a trail of crumbs on the floor at the bottom of his cage. “I must follow the crumbs!!” he started to run but, as he did his mother and father caught him by the skin of his tail. “You’re not going anywhere young man!” said his mother. “ thats right” his father agreed. “Now, eat your breakfast!” she demanded. After breakfast, I played with Mr. Amigo, my squishy mariachi toy. “Not fair! Not fair!” I was sad that I couldn’t leave the shelter. I thought my parents wanted more for me but I couldn’t even convince them that wanted to explore the world. I squashed that squeaky toy as hard as I could. Pop! Out came a little snack. The rescuers liked to put little goodies and treats inside our toys as a reward for good behavior. But I hadn’t been good. What was this treat doing inside “Mr. Amigo” so I ate the treat. “Yummy”! I exclaimed. Hmmm… let’s try this again. I ate one more. Then, I popped out another and another… and another…. “Oooohhh, I don’t feel good.” things were going great ! I would cry wolf then rescuers would come get me and then I would be taken to the infirmary where I would be loaded with Gas-X and released to quarantine where I would stay for a couple days and eventually be released into the great beyond. It worked and that’s how I ended up here.

The end
