Final Fantasy VII: ReMake (Preview)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview Final Fantasy VII: Remake for the PlayStation 4. The game is a remake of the 1997 game Final Fantasy VII for the PlayStation 1.

 

Square Enix “ the company that invented Final Fantasy” plans to release the game in episodic installments, with the first scheduled for release on April 10, 2020. The first installment covers the beginning of the game’s storyline from bombing a Mako Reactor to fleeing The City of Midgar.

 

The protagonists in the first installment are Cloud Strife (an Ex-Soldier turned Mercenary)(Weapon: Buster Sword), Barrel Wallace (the leader of the Rebel Force: Avalanche)(Weapon: Gun-Arm), Tifa Lockhart (Cloud’s childhood friend and a member of Avalanche)(Weapon: Martial Arts), Aerith Gainsborough (a Flower Girl and the sole survivor of an Ancient Race known as the Centra)(Weapons: Staff/Magic) and Red XIII aka Nanaki (a Red Lion/Wolf-like Beast).

 

The antagonists in the first installment are Sephiroth (a Legendary Super-Soldier)(Weapon: Masamune), President Shinra (a tyrannical businessman), Heidegger (President Shinra’s assistant and the Head of Public Safety “a euphemism for the military), Scarlet (the Head of Shinra’s Weapons Development), Palmer (the Head of Shinra’s Space Program), Tseng (the Leader of the Turks “ President’s Elite BodyGuards”), Reno and Rude (Members of the Turks) and Hojo (the Head of Shinra’s Bio-Chemical Research).

 

In conclusion, I strongly believe that this game will surpass it’s PS1 counterpart on a level of global proportions and in turn exceed all expectations, beliefs and ideals concerning the vast world of Final Fantasy VII.

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to preview the upcoming game Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. This game is scheduled to be released on Friday, January 17, 2020.

 

This game follows the exploits of Goku and his friends as they traverse the Dragon Ball Z storyline. The Dragon Ball Z storyline in this game consists of the Saiyan Saga, the Namek Saga, the Frieza Saga, the Android Saga, the Cell Saga, the Great Saiyaman Saga, the Majin Buu Saga, the Super Buu Saga and the Kid Buu Saga.

 

Unlike other Dragon Ball games, Goku and his friends also partake in actual martial arts training, Goku and his friends also partake in delicious meals, Goku and his friends also relax around a campfire and Goku and his friends also can freely traverse the Dragon Ball Z universe. In this game, you also encounter familiar faces from the original Dragon Ball series such as Nam, Bora and Bora’s son Upa.

 

This game also features a new Ginyu Force character, Bonyu. In my opinion, I do believe that Bonyu is from the same planet as another Ginyu Force character, Jeice due to them having both red skin and white hair.

 

The protagonists are Goku, Piccolo, Gohan (Kid), Gohan (Adult), Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, Chiaotzu, Vegeta, Goten, Trunks (Future) and Trunks (Kid).

 

The antagonists in this game are Raditz, Nappa, Vegeta, Dodoria, Zarbon, Guldo, Recoome, Burter, Jeice, Captain Ginyu, Frieza, Androids 19 and 20 (Dr. Gero), Androids 16, 17 and 18, Cell, Dabura, Babidi, Majin Buu, Super Buu (Original), Super Buu (Gotenks and Piccolo absorbed), Super Buu (Gohan absorbed) and Kid Buu.

 

In conclusion, I strongly believe that this game’s popularity will make it the most “Legendary” game in the entire Dragon Ball franchise.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie’s Revenge for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox. This game was first released on October 21, 2004. This game is a direct sequel to The Nightmare Before Christmas movie.

 

In this game, Jack Skellington leaves Halloween Town again to seek new ideas and discoveries to improve on Halloween. Before leaving, Doctor Finkelstein gives Jack his latest creation: the “Soul Rubber” as a farewell gift.

 

In his absence, Oogie Boogie’s minions (Lock, Shock and Barrel) sew Oogie Boogie back together who in turn takes over Halloween Town, brainwashes Doctor Finkelstein, imprisons 5 of the 7 holiday leaders and attempts to take his revenge on both Santa Claus and Jack Skellington in order to ultimately become the 7 Holiday’s King.

 

When Jack Skellington returns to Halloween Town on December 24, he must maneuver through Oogie’s traps, battle past Oogie’s army of skeletons and ghosts, rescue Oogie’s prisoners and confront Oogie’s Minions (Lock, Shock and Barrel), Oogie’s Shadow and Oogie Boogie himself.

 

The 7 holidays in this game are Halloween, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Thanksgiving, Independence Day, Easter and Christmas.

 

In conclusion, I found this game to be a celebratory accomplishment to multiple, major, big-time holidays as well as combining the fear with the cheer.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the animated movie Justice League VS Teen Titans. This is the 6th DC Animated Movie Universe “DCAMU” film to be released in 2016.

The Justice League members in this movie are Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash and Cyborg.

In conclusion, I found this crossover to be one of DC Comics greatest achievements in the entertainment industry.

 

Medievil 1 & 2 (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review both Medievil 1 and Medievil II for the PlayStation 1. Medievil 1 was first released on October 21, 1998 and Medievil II was first released on April 30, 2000.

In Medievil 1, The evil sorcerer, Zarok resurfaces in the year 1386 and casts a spell that plunges the entire Kingdom of Gallowmere into an Eternal Night.

Thus, allowing Zarok to steal the souls of the living as well as raise his undead army.

An unintended side-effect of Zarok’s Spell though is that it also revives the heroic champion of Gallowmere, Sir Daniel Fortesque thus allowing him a second chance to finally and successfully defeat Zarok once and for all and finally earn his place as a true hero.

 

Medievil II takes place in Victorian London circa 1886. In this game, An evil warlock named Lord Palethorn rediscovers Zarok’s spellbook and recasts the spell Zarok used to reanimate the dead which as before also revives Sir Daniel Fortesque who must now stop Lord Palethorn from reclaiming the pages from Zarok’s spellbook that went missing.

 

The locations in Medievil II are the Museum, Kensington, Greenwich Observatory, Kew Gardens, Wulfrum Hall, Whitechapel and Cathedral Spires.

 

The cast of characters are Sir Daniel Fortesque (Main Protagonist)(Medievil 1 Weapons: Small Sword/Magic Sword, Throwing Daggers, Crossbow, Longbow/Flaming Longbow/Magic Longbow, Spear, Club, and Axe)(Medievil II Weapons: Small Sword/BroadSword, Flaming Crossbow, Pistol, Bombs, Hammer, Cane Stick and Gatling Gun),

Zarok (Medievil 1’s Main Antagonist/Evil Sorcerer)(Weapon: Magic)

Lord PaleThorn (Medievil 2’s Main Antagonist/Evil Warlock)(Weapon: Magic),

Professor Hamilton Kift (Medievil 2’s Protagonist/Magician, Inventor and Master of the Occult),

Princess Kiya (Medievil 2’s Protagonist/Mummy and Sir Daniel Fortesque’s future love interest),

The Count (Medievil 2’s Antagonist/Vampire)(Location: Wulfrum Hall) and Jack the Ripper (Medievil 2’s Antagonist/Demon)(Location: Whitechapel).

 

In conclusion, I found Medievil 1 & 2 to be one of the best Pulse-Pounding, Heart-Racing, Senses-Shattering and Horror-Themed game series to ever be released.

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review the movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: Turtles in Time. This movie was first released on March 19, 1993.

 

The story-setting for this movie takes place two years after the events of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: Secrets of the Ooze while mostly centering in Japan circa 1603 (Feudal Era).

 

In this movie, April O’Neil is unexpectedly pulled through time to Feudal Japan via an ancient scepter which the TMNT must now use to follow after her in order to bring her and themselves home. While in Feudal Japan, they assist a rebellion in their fight against the warmongering Daimyo, Lord Norinaga.

 

The cast of characters in this movie are Leonardo (Turtle)(weapons: Twin Katanas),

Donatello (Turtle)(weapon: Bo Staff),

Raphael (Turtle)(weapons: Twin Sai),

Michaelangelo (Turtle)(weapons: Twin Nunchucks),

Casey Jones (Human)(Vigilante)(weapons: Hockey Stick/Twin Baseball Bats/Golf Club),

Mitsu (Human)(the Rebellion’s Leader),

Kenshin (Human)(Lord Norinaga’s son),

Lord Norinaga (Human)(Daimyo) and Walker (Human)(Main Villain).

 

In  conclusion, I found this movie to symbolize and enforce the concept that is Cultural Exchange to a chronologically “Cowabunga” celebration of “Turtle-Power” proportions.
