Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to another TGIF episode. I hope everyone is doing okay since I guess there’s a cold going on in the first weeks of January. I got hit by this cold and it really drains me. I had to deal with stuffy and running noses, sinus pressure and chills. Still, I haven’t yet faced bedridden yet. At least the good thing about being sick it helps build my immune system and I will be stronger than ever.
Besides my sick life, I got some video game news to share. On January 16th, Capcom will be re-releasing Street Fighter V with the latest updates and DLC and the game will be called Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. According to Amazon, the game will include free DLC from previous season pass such as new characters like Sakura, Akuma or Sagat. The game will also bring arcade mode where players will fight six enemies and unlock illustrations in which players can view anytime. New V-triggers will be released and it allow much more combat for players. If you haven’t bought the original Street Fighter V game, you can buy this game instead for about $40. If you already have the original game, download the Arcade Edition in the PSN for free and you will get the free features.
With all this said, let’s start fight!
Here are some Street Fighter videos for your enjoyment!
If you guys plan to get this game, let me know what’s your opinion. I haven’t played a Street Fighter game since I played all the Alpha games and the very first Street Fighter 1 and 2. I would like to come back and play SF again. What I find interesting about the games is the characters and fight styles. I may not know the lore of story series but I do enjoy the fight mechanics and insane powers. If I do get this game, let’s have a fight on the PS4! I still find the live action movie cheesy good.
See you next episode spammers and pros!

Mentioned on Twitter y Playstation LifeStyle and GameSpot, there appears to be news in regards to Final Fantasy XV.
According to GameSpot, ESRB might have left a leak because in the game boards, there is a rating for a game called Final Fantasy XV: Royal Edition. Just like most games that is called Game of the Year, this updated edition will have the main Final Fantasy XV game along with DLC episodes (Episode Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis). If this leak is true, people who wants to get into Final Fantasy XV will be happy to know that they can get their hands on this game for all the updates. This game will be for PS4 and Xbox One.
Square Enix also mentioned besides this and the upcoming PC game, 2018 is going to be really big for FFXV. Since I already have the DLC episodes, I will not buy this Royal Edition. So far, this news is only a leak but I believe this game will be real news.
If you are watching Toonami. I got news for you and it can be good news as well. In January 27th, the anime series Space Dandy will return to Toonami and will be replacing the anime Lupin the 3rD Part 4. This is the new schedule for the 27th:
10:30p – Dragon Ball Super
11:00p – Dragon Ball Z Kai
11:30p – Black Clover
12:00a – JoJo: Stardust Crusaders
12:30a – Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
1:00a – Hunter x Hunter
1:30am – Naruto: Shippuden
2:00am – Outlaw Star
2:30am – Space Dandy
3:00am – Cowboy Bebop
3:30am – GITS 2nd GIG
I seen this anime and if you like random and silly action with Cowboy Bebop vibes, then you will like this. Dandy is a dandy guy in space.
Good news have been spreading all over online and it involves Amazon and anime fans.
It’s been mentioned by Lauren Orsini at Forbes and Crunchyroll that Amazon officially removed Anime Strike and gave Prime users the ability to stream free anime.
To those who don’t know Amine Strike, Anime Strike is an exclusive streaming site used only for Amazon Prime users. Fans not only had to pay for a Prime Subscription but they also had to pay $5 a month to use Anime Strike. If people were willing to pay both subscriptions, fans would be able to stream free anime and exclusive Amazon anime online and offline.
Now with this news, if you have Prime, go and stream free anime!
I want to thank Alyssa from Twitter and MDMRN for the latest scoop! Thanks to them, I also got the news.
Thank God it’s Friday! Welcome back to a new episode and season of TGIF Friday Funny! Before we start this episode, I got some new news for you. As we enter 2018, get ready for new stuff like video games and movies! Currently in January, we will be getting some new fighting games: Dragonball FighterZ, Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. In Dragonball FighterZ, Publisher Bandai Namco of Entertainment and Developer Arc Work Systems will be working together and create a new Dragonball fighting game. It won’t be like Budokai, Tenkaichi nor the Xenoverse and instead, the game will be played like the Guilty Gear series. The animation will be similar to the manga and anime and it will have characters from Z and Super along with a new character named Android 21. In Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition, Capcom will re-release Street Fighter V but it will include free updated content such as DLC characters to the recent roster, an arcade mode where you can unlock illustrations and even new V-Triggers for fun combat. If you already have Street Fighter V, the Arcade Edition will be a free download so you don’t have to pay again. If you are like me and didn’t buy the game, you can buy the Arcade Edition instead and the price is about $35. Last but not least we have Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. In this game, players will be able to control their favorite heroes from FF1 to FF15 along with Type-0 and Tactics. The game will be in PS4 and the with the help of Team Ninja, the characters look amazing. Ever want to play as Noctis (FF15) and fight Sephiroth (FF7) or have Cloud (FF7) fight Kefka (FF6)? Now you can!
As random news, January 4th is the day where the Cartoon Network classic Ed, Edd’n Eddy debuted on TV. This is my cartoon growing up and it’s something I would watch everyday besides SpongeBob SquarePants. Ed, Edd’n Eddy first premiered in January 4th, 1999 and now that we are in 2018, this cartoon is 19 years old. The show starred three young boys who’s named both starts with Eds, who creates these devious scams in hopes of robbing kids in order to buy jawbreakers. We have the first Ed named Ed who is the dumbest but happy kid who has bad odor but with great strength; he also loves chickens and eats butter toast with gravy. He is voiced by Matt Hill who surprisingly did voices for anime characters such as Kira Yamoto in Gundam Seed Destiny and Bankotsu in Inuyasha and Mou Ten in Kingdom. Second Ed is Eddward but he nicknamed Double D because his name has two D’s. He is the smartest and clean freak kid who likes to stay organize and creates plans for the group. He wears a hat but no one knows why he wears it and the only people who seen his head is his own friends Ed and Eddy. Double D is voiced by Samuel Vincent who did many voices in cartoons and anime. In anime, he did Dexter from Hamtaro, Sidoh from Death Note, and just like Matt Hill, he was in Gundam Seed Destiny and he voiced Athrun Zala. Last but not least, we have Eddy. Eddy is the leader and the shortest of the group. He is the one comes up with the scams and he is the greediest kid. He constantly brags about having a cool and intimated brother and he wants to be the popular kid in the cul-de-sac. Eddy is voiced by Tony Sampson. He also did anime but unlike the previous two he didn’t do Gundam Seed Destiny and instead, he was in Mobile Suit Gundam Seed as Miguel Aiman and he voiced as Toya Kinomoto in Cardcaptor Sakura.
Sorry for this extensive information, but I love this show and I could go on but I need to start this episode. Here is something to laugh!
To conclude this post, here are some Canadian humor!
Life as many doors Ed boys! See you next time!
This is a rather odd but clever marketing technique. Most of you already know, Square Enix’s upcoming game Dissidia Final Fantasy XV is coming to PS4 on January 30th and there’s bonus DLC depending where you preorder. I found out this news recently now and it’s a code for a DLC costume! Announced on Twitter, Square Enix teamed up with the cup of noodle company Nissin and are selling limited edition marked Cup of Noodles with character images (Cloud, Lightning, Warrior of Light) from Dissidia NT.
Players who purchase these special noodles will be given a special code to download a free costume for Noctis Lucis Caelum. The costume is his Royal Raiment. So far, this is only for USA stores and if you use the site’s shop locator, you will find out where’s the nearest store where they might have the noodles.
According to the Nissin website, if you buy the noodles and text them a picture of your receipt, the company will give you a code where you can redeem the costume for free. This game is only for PS4.
If you want to unlock this costume for Noctis, be like Gladio and buy some noodles. I am hungry now.
Synopsis from site:
Create your own avatar and join up with three other friends to take on epic quests and battles in the FFXV’s first and only online multiplayer expansion.
Set in a world engulfed by darkness, the expansion casts players as a member of the Kingsglaive, with powers and unique abilities invoked from various Lucian kings, who join forces to bring the Light back to the kingdom of Lucis. Other members of Noctis’s crew including Gladiolus, Prompto and Ignis will be made playable in future game updates.
FINAL FANTASY XV MULTIPLAYER EXPANSION: COMRADES is available to players who purchased FINAL FANTASY XV and the FINAL FANTASY XV Season Pass or FINAL FANTASY XV MULTIPLAYER EXPANSION: COMRADES standalone expansion.
(Even though it’s spoiler-free, I will mention stuff from the main game and it could be spoilers. This online expansion is part of the game’s story and it takes place after chapter 13.)
Mentioned last year, SAO fans will be getting Sword Art Online season 3 and a spinoff anime based on Gun Gale Online.
Announced at ANN, the spinoff series Sword Art Online Alternative: Gun Gale Online will be premiering in April. The series is based on Keiichi Sigsawa’s Light Novel. Here is the cast for the characters:
The story follows Karen Kohiruimaki, a 183-centimeter-tall (6-foot-tall) college student who’s insecure her height, and is bad at dealing with people in the real world. She enters the world of Gun Gale Online with her avatar, Llenn, who is less than 150 centimeters (5 feet) tall and wears all pink. She meets a beautiful, brown-skinned female player who goes by Pitohui. They hit it off, but one day Pitohui pressures her to participate in “Squad Jam,” a team Battle Royale variation of the Bullet of Bullets tournament.
The characters Llenn and Pitohui will be playable characters in the upcoming Sword Art Online video game Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet in February.
