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.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Movie Review {Spoiler Review}

Image result for star wars rise of skywalker poster

This review will be a few spoilers, if you haven’t seen the film…don’t read…if you saw the movie…you’re welcome to read the review. I know there’s a lot of mixed opinions about the movie, I respect everyone’s opinions.

 

My thoughts and reaction: I enjoyed Star Wars: Episode IX -The Rise of Skywalker, the final episode of the Skywalker saga. I was expecting a bit of detail of the Emperor’s return…they didn’t explain much…but I find it interesting is the Emperor stays attached to a large machine.

 

One twist that I did not expect is that Rey is Emperor Palpatine’s granddaughter…a lot of surprises.

 

The visual effects looked cool, great music by John Williams and more. Leia Organa played by Carrie Fisher who passed away on December 27, 2016…the film used unused footage of Fisher  from The Force Awakens.

 

Billy Dee Williams coming back as Lando Calrissian was great, it was cool to see Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford as Luke Skywalker and Han Solo

 

I enjoyed the Sequel trilogy…in my opinion my favorite Star Wars trilogies is the original and prequel

 

The cast and crew did a great job in the film

 

I give this movie a B

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.

Power Rangers: I’m Dreaming of a White Ranger (Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review a Power Ranger Christmas episode: I’m Dreaming of a White Ranger. This is the 16th episode in the 3rd season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers as well as the 2nd Power Rangers Christmas special.

 

The episode plot is described as follows: ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, and at the North Pole; Brainwashing children was Lord Zedd’s goal.

His inventions were stirring, all the plans have been made; So Rito and Goldar and the Tengas just played.

While Santa and his helpers are held at their shop, There’s a good chance that Christmas will just go kerplop.

Now the Rangers have been summoned to put a stop to this deed, But have they the power they’ll eventually need?

 

In short, the Power Rangers have to save Christmas without their powers due to a combination of the North Pole’s unique polarity and a cross-current of holiday magic.

 

In conclusion, I found this episode to showcase the Christmas spirit both magically and heroically.
