Happy One Year Anniversay Final Fantasy XV

Happy Anniversary to Final Fantasy XV! November 29th is the day the game has been released to all over the world for PS4 and Xbox One in 2016. Who would have thought this game will leave a big impact on the world and us fans. In this post, I want to talk about how this game affected me and made me a hardcore fan and also reflect on the past and what to expect on the future. To be honest, I didn’t plan this post out, so as of right now, I am writing from my head. I was actually going to title this Matthew vs Final Fantasy XV based on a video I saw called Johnny vs The Street Fighter series in which the YouTuber Johnny talks about how Street Fighter has affected him and giving us a brief history on the series.  Another title name was going to be Final Fantasy XV Retrospective. Anyway let’s  start!

The Unique Blogger Award

https://yaoiplayground.files.wordpress.com/2017/10/rikdvxx.png

I am so sorry that I didn’t do this last month, but this time, I want to do this and make it up. I got nominated by Mistress of Yaoi for the Unique Blogger Award. Here is the rules:

These are her questions:

  1. Well I am the Mistress of Yaoi so I have to start here, what introduced you to the world of boys love and Yaoi?

I didn’t do much for Halloween. All I did was rake leaves and ate candy corn and skittles. I also watched a classic movie in Blu-Ray called Casper. I enjoyed this movie as a kid and after watching it again as an adult, it made me feel younger and I did notice the adult content.

Terrible news: Rurouni Kenshin Hokkaido Arc in hiatus because of creator’s crime!

https://i.pinimg.com/736x/1f/6e/b5/1f6eb58102508e47b14a507a2721a9e9--angry-eyes-rurouni-kenshin.jpg

Don’t you hate it when you wake and you get bad news? I do and here is what is going on.

Recently announced today from Shueisha, Jump SQ will not be releasing any Rurouni Kenshin: Hokkaido Arc chapters for a while. As a matter of fact, this series is going to be on indefinite hiatus! If the series is on hiatus in Japan, that means fans in America will also miss out on Kenshin.

Why you may ask?

The reason why the series is on indefinite hiatus is because it is reported by the Tokyo Metropolitan Police that the manga creator Nobuhiro Watsuki is charged for possession of child pornography. According to authorities, Watsuki had more child porn in his office and hidden away recently in October. The porn he had was in DVDs and it was about young girls in early teens. Watsuki comments about it by saying, “liked girls in late elementary school to around the second year of middle school.”

Police also found more in his home which dates back to 2015. For Watsuki’s crime, he is entailed for a year of imprisonment and has to pay a fine of 1 million yen (in USA currency it is $8,800).

Now with this said, Watsuki later expresses his deep sorrow and regrets ever doing the crime. With this crime now, it’s going to be a long time until Rurouni Kenshin: Hokkaido Arc to come back.

 

Game News: Possible crossovers or remakes with Viewtiful Joe, Bayonetta and many more!

Hideki Kamiya, game designer and director of PlatinumGames, revealed some surprising news while being in a interview in Dengeki Playstation in regards to videos games.

“I want to work on a Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe remake, or a true sequel for Okami. A cooperation with Dante (from Devil May Cry) and Bayonetta might also be fun. Dear Capcom, if it’s okay with someone like me, I will help anytime. Best regards. Everyone, bow down your heads together with me!”

In other words, if people are willing to take a chance, Kamiya might bring back Devil May Cry or Viewtiful Joe in HD, a sequel to Okami or even have a crossover with Dante from Devil May Cry and Bayonetta from the Bayonetta series.
Hideki Kamiya is well known for these following games:
  • Resident Evil 2
  • Devil May Cry (2001)
  • Viewtiful Joe 1 and 2
  • Bayonetta
  • Wonderful Hero 101
  • Okami

What do you guys think of the news? Which one would you want to be see done?

For me, I would like to play the Vietiful Joe series again in HD or I would like to play Bayonetta in the crossover.
