The Amazing Spider-Man 2 PS4 game review

GameStop Product Details:

What started out as the search for a killer very quickly becomes something so much more. In a unique story alongside the events of the second film, Spider-Man discovers he’s not the only one tracking down Manhattan’s criminals. The underworld has been turned upside down with a one man campaign of violence and murder that is has captured the city in an iron grip of fear. Villains from the film as well as fan-favorite, classic Marvel characters are woven together in a twisted web of adrenaline-fueled, freeroaming, web-slinging action that puts players on a collision course with an evil far beyond Spider-Man’s reckoning.

– List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog.

The Questions

  1. What got you interested in blogging?

I mentioned this before but I don’t mind saying it again. I didn’t plan to blog, I was forced to get this account for a college class. We had to use this to get graded for work. After I pass the class, I never came back to this blog. However, once I was reaching the end of 2015, I decided to use this again to share my passion of anime and manga and other nerdiness.

  • What do you wish people knew about you without you having to tell people?

I wanted people to know about me without telling them, I would like to say that even though I always appear optimistic and caring online, sometimes I wish I can say that I am either stressed out or just need someone to pat me on the back. Sometimes I wish I had someone out there comforting me whenever I get down in the dumps.

  • What first got you interested in anime and or manga?

In anime, I got interested from watching cartoons as kid. When I was little, I would watch cartoons like Looney Tunes and Disney. When I saw Pokemon from Kids WB, I got hooked. Later in my elementary school, I got into to serious anime like Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z.

In manga, I got into that because my sister bought me some Yu-Gi-Oh! manga. She knew I like the anime but when she got a giftcard from an old bookstore called Walden Bookstore, she wanted to buy me something. At first I was hesitant but after I read the first volume, I wanted more volumes.

  • Are you an early bird or a night owl?

I am partially both these birds. I like to stay up late on weekends but not much on week days. I don’t mind waking up early in the morning if I know I have to do work or chores. Also, I enjoy getting things done.

  • Do you plan or wing your blog posts?

I usually do both but it depends. If I want to do a review or write the news, I just do it. On my Friday posts, I usually have things planned out and scheduled on a specific time. Sometimes on these Friday posts, I plan a special themed posts.

  • If you could save three things from a fire in your home, what would they be? Ps size, weight and quantity don’t matter.

If I could save three things from a fire, I would grab 3 things:

  1. I would save my photo album collecting some precious memories
  2. My teddy bear from my childhood
  3. My Bible
  • Do you have any anime merch? (this includes manga) If yes, what was the very first thing you bought?

I actually do have merchandise. If I remember correctly, I bought an umbrella based on the Ichigo’s sword from the anime Bleach. You can see the pictures here at my post. This was one of the coolest thing to buy, but my family thought it was weird to see me buy an umbrella lol.

  • How open are you in the real world about your feelings towards anime?

I can be hesitant when I bring up my feelings to anime but I usually whenever I a confident, I say it with assurance. I just admit that I enjoy anime. It’s better than hiding my interests and keeping it locked up. I enjoy anime and I want to people to know about it.

  • Have you ever cosplayed or wanted to? If yes, what character and why that character?

I always dreamed of cosplaying a character. If I wanted to cosplay as an anime character, I would like to cosplay as Ken Kaneki from Tokyo Ghoul.

  • If you knew money was not an issue, what is the one thing that you would do for yourself?

If money wasn’t wasn’t the problem, I would like to build a a room dedicated to my anime and manga stuff. I want to build a library collecting my manga and build shelves for any anime figurines.

  • What is your favourite post that you have written on your blog and what is the most popular post on your blog?

My favorite post I ever written was my reflection post about my life in college and where does the future hold for me. The post is called “Graduation – My School Life and The Future Story time“. I think in my blog, the only post I see that gets the most popular view is my post about the clothes for the One Piece movie “One Piece Film: Gold”. The post is here, “One Piece Gold updated costumes“. (probably because there are people who like to look at Nami and Robin).

TGIF Friday Funny 84: Reclaim the Throne

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Hello everyone and happy Friday. This is Matthew and even though Thanksgiving was Thursday, I wish to say Happy Thanksgiving. I hope everyone had a wonderful day and got to spend time with their love ones. This is one of those times where you can eat as much food you want without worrying about eating too much or getting fat XD. This is an important holiday in the United States because we remember what are we thankful for and acknowledge what is important. In my Christian beliefs, we thank God for providing a home to live and thank for the blessings God has given us. I will say that I am thankful for my family providing me and helping me through life, I am thankful for God who never left me and always kept me safe, and finally, I am thankful for all my friends who didn’t leave me and supported me. Thank you everyone!

Judging by this title and this meme I made recently, you can tell what’s happening this next week. After this weekend, the long awaited Square Enix game Final Fantasy XV will be released globally on November 29. This game is available for PS4 and Xbox One. In this game, players will play as the Noctis and with his friends, they must save his kingdom from the enemy forces of Niflheim. To increase this hype, check out my related posts. Check out my review on the Platinum Demo or the anime prequel Brotherhood: Final Fantasy XV. Also, check out my gameplay of the Platinum Demo if you are interested:

If you are not planing to get this game because you’re spending time with Pokemon Sun and Moon or just not into this, I got better news. Anime sites like Rightstuf, Amazon and Sentai Filmworks are slashing down prices on their select anime titles for the holiday season. If you plan to shop for anime DVDs for Black Friday, Cyber Monday or just the whole month of December, check these places and spend on some anime goods!

Last but not least, another Shonen Jump titles ended this week. The action-adventure food series Toriko is over. This year is the end of another Shonen Jump titles. Nisekoi ended, Bleach is done and now Toriko is over. Don’t forget to buy the manga and experience the action of fighting animals and eating food.

With all this said, let’s begin this tasty post!

To start off this weekend, here are some music played by different artists who sings the song “Stand By Me”.

Here is the opening song to Toriko. Thanks for all the fun!

Have a wonderful weekend!

TGIF Friday Funny 83: New Game, Same Rules

TGIF!

Thank God it’s Friday! Hello everyone, this is Matt-in-the-Hat and welcome back for another exciting day of Friday Funny. We made it to Friday and we made it through half of November. As we go through the other half, get ready for the holidays such Thanksgiving. Besides eating the big turkey, get ready for sales for video games and anime. Save up your money and keep an eye out for sales and specific days like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Speaking of new games, if you own a 3DS, get ready for the new game, Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon. In this new game, trainers will get to meet new Pokemon like the starter Pokemon Rowlet (grass and flying), Litten (fire) and Popplio (water). New features such 4 player Pokemon Battle Royal where 4 trainers can fight each other and also training where trainers train their Pokemon with other people. Even classic Pokemon return and reveal the new Alola Forms. Pokemon like Meowth and Exggutor will change forms and types to enhance combat.

If you don’t own a 3DS, you can always enjoy games for PS4 and Xbox One such as of Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Watch Dogs 2, and Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Years Celebration. Personally, the one game I am looking forward to is… Final Fantasy XV. Final Fantasy XV is set to be released on 11/29 for PS4 and Xbox One. Japan recently released another Demo called the Judgement Disc. Based on what is shown, Japanese players will play only the first chapter of the game.

Also in random news, I still haven’t seen Doctor Strange, but I have seen Hacksaw Ridge. To those who don’t know what it is, it’s a movie based on a true story about a brave soldier named Desmond Doss (played by Andrew Garfield) who gets drafted into World War II and earns the Medal of Honor without holding a gun based on religion beliefs. Even without touching a weapon, Desmond was a valuable soldier who helped saved injured soldiers during the fight against the Japanese. The movie was directed by Mel Gibson, same guy who directed the Passion of the Christ and Brave Heart. This is by far the best movie I have ever seen. The real heroes are the ones that fought for America. God bless America.

In my personal life, it’s a roller coaster ride. My life is having one of those up and down moments.

With this said, game on!
