Europe, Memoirs, and Acting, Oh My! And More Stuff, Too! (More Kingdom Hearts News)

  I learned some new stuff this morning as far as Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance goes. Here we go!

  European readers, listen up! You're going to get the game supposedly in Summer 2012. The release date keeps changing. If you don't speak English, your games will most likely be subtitled only. Sorry, guys. :( If it makes you feel better, North America (where I am) hasn't got our date yet...

  But it should be soon. I've heard that the English voice actors have been working on dubbing, and that they may be done. So the release date should be soon.

  There's also supposed to be a new feature, called the "Memoir" feature. From what I've heard, it's sort of a way to recap the games so far. So, if you have friends without the pleathora of systems that you need to keep up with this series, you could use this to "convert" your friends and get them up-to-date. Or just reminise/refresh your memory. AND, you seem to be able to playthrough parts. So that's what's most likely what Ursula's appearance was about last trailer. YAY! THERE'S STILL A WORLD LEFT! No, wait, I got word there's TWO other worlds left. Sweet....

  Oh, you can apparently switch between Sora and Riku IN-GAME, so no "Save Multiple Games"! Yay!

  And also, Dilan and Even are apparently back, too. And Isa may or may not be back (I read Lea wonders where he is). So, that's about eight members now... Let's make it TWELVE!! Lea's apparently looking for the others, so...

  That's what I got for now. I'm keeping my eyes and ears peeled, so keep clicking back!

Ramblin' 'Bout That There Young Justice

  Oh, you thought my talk of Young Justice was over. YOU WERE WRONG!!! MUAH HAHAHAHAHA!!!! *cough* *wheeze* ....*deep breath* HaHAHaHahaaaa.....

  Sorry, I'm hyper today.

  Anyway, I finally caught up with the series, and I can't wait for it to come back March 3rd so I can watch it on YouTube. I prefer YouTube right now (NETFLIX, WHY DON'T YOU HAVE THE SHOW ON INSTANT VIEW!?) because it doesn't have ads in-between like Cartoon Network does. I'd rather have to watch flipped footage than see it through a player that has ads every segment, and has a history of messing up when I try and "rewind" something.

   Huh, it appears I've gone on a tangent. Allow me to return to the *MILD SPOILER-TASTIC* topic.

  So, it turns out Red Tornado's NOT the traitor. So that means someone on The Team is back to possibly being The Mole. My gut says it's Artemis, since she's got the most evidence pointing that way. I REALLY don't want it to be her though. I like Artemis. I'm hoping if it's her, she's a reformed/reverse mole. Still holding on to that "Superboy is an Unintentional Mole" thing. Especially since they brought up a theory like that in the show. Seriously, I kind of squealed inside when I found out I was on the same page as THE FREAKIN' BATMAN! Here's the discussion:

  And I'm also nervous about the fact they've said someone's gonna die. PLEASE DON'T LET IT BE ROBIN! I loves him. I loves him so. And I hope it's not Artemis. Because Angry-Grieving Kid Flash is kind of scary....

  Oh, there's the fact that they said there will be new characters joining The Team. One in the middle of the season, and one at the end of the season. I'm hoping for Kyle Rayner.

  Kyle Rayner is a Green Lantern, one of the four Earth Lanterns. He's an artist in the comics, so I automatically like him. He's notable for making a wide variety of constructs with his ring.

 Plus he had the coolest Lantern costume EVAH!

  Besides, he doesn't appear that much in the DC cartoons. If there's a Lantern, it's either Hal (The Original Earth one), John Stewart (The Black One), or Guy Gardener (The One with the Bowlcut and Attitude) for the most part. We've seen the other guys in Justice League scenes. Kyle needs more love. He could be a cool addition to The Team. I heard season 2 will be called Young Justice: Invasion. Invasion=Space Invaders. The Green Lantern Corps is in space. Let's face it, the group needs a Lantern.

  Well, I think I'm about done here, so...OHWAITAMINUTE!!
 There was the Robin and Zatanna flirting!





  That's all I have to say 'bout that.

 That's all folks!

It Just Bugs Me...

  So, I've been CONSTANTLY checking and re-checking Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance info to see if the US has a release date yet (sadly, no...). I've checked GameStop, and there's something I've read in the preview buzz that's been bugging me.

 People saying Kingdom Hearts III will be the end.

  Okay, why does everyone assume that it all ends in III? I swear, I read something that Tetsuya said that III would be the end of the Xehenort Saga. They never said that would be the end of the series. Just because it will be the last game where Xehenort must be fought doesn't mean it's the last game...

 There's always another threat. Another bad thing to jeopardize the universe. Maleficent can rise back up and prove to us again how she's "The Mistress of All Evil". Or a whole new threat could come up! There's adventures of past Keyblade Masters. There's adventures in the future. In short, there could always be another possibility for a story.

  Would I be upset if the series ended? Yes. It's been a part of my life for a long time. (Wow, that kind of sounded sad, but you know what I meant, right?) It'll be a sad day when the series ends. But if that's where they want to end it, fine. I know when the series ends, they'll do something amazing. I mean, 3D looks amazing, so III will probably be spectacular.

  But I just don't like people assuming that III is the end. End of story. Until someone officially says, "This game is the grand finale", I'm not just going to jump to the conclusion that III will be the end.

  After all, the beginning is the end is the beginning.

  (Yeah, I don't get it either, I just wanted a song title reference...)

My Favorite Wolverine And The X-Men Episodes

  So I've been feeling nostalgic and I watched an episode of Wolverine and the X-Men. I LOVED this show. I really wish it had continued to Season 2. They would've had DEADPOOL in Season 2! *sigh* So I decided to write a list of my favorite episodes in no particular order. Here we go!

 -Thieves' Gambit I really liked Gambit in this episode. And I loved his and Wolverine's interactions. Plus, I'm going through a minor Gambit phase right now. I especially loved this line:
Wolverine: You sold out your own kind for some money?
Gambit: No, I sold my kind out for a whole lot of money, there's a distinction...
-X-Calibre Oh, Nightcrawler. How do I love thee? Anyway, this showcased how awesome he is. So how could I NOT put this up?

-Greetings Form Genosha Another Nightcrawler episode. Plus, it's got Scarlet Witch in it! Highlights include the Nightcrawler/Scarlet Witch pairing (which I love), Magneto removing his helmet in an awesome manner, and the AWESOME SCENE where Nightcrawler teleports across the ENTIRE FREAKIN' OCEAN to the X-Mansion. *sigh* Why did they kill you off in the comics, Mr. Wagner? Why?

-Battle Lines Simple: Rogue was awesome this episode. That is all.

-Hunting Grounds YAY! MORE NIGHTCRAWLER AWESOMENESS! YAY! MORE SCARLET WITCH AWESOMENESS! I love how this show also displays Nightcrawler's epicness. And oh yeah, SCARLET WITCH KISSES NIGHTCRAWLER! Granted it's on the cheek, BUT STILL! Have I mentioned I like that relationship and wish it was in the regular continuity?

-Code of Conduct Four words: "I just learned Bushido." I adore Rogue. Because Rogue + Highly Trained Samurai = awesomest Rogue moment ever.

 Well, those were the episodes that I loved the most. Yes, 50% of them involved Nightcrawler. What can I say, he's just epic. Just watch this Marvel: Ultimate Alliance clip.

 ...You're welcome for the awesomeness.

*UPDATE* Oh, yeah. Almost forgot...

-Time Bomb This was an awesome episode. There was the "Toad in MRD Prison" scene, Wolverine wanting everyone to "quit helpin' me!", and there was the cool scene where Iceman makes a giant ice island. And I have to admit, I thought Emma Frost vs. Psylocke was sweet, too. Emma effortlessly kicked Psylocke's butt in their psychic battle, and it was cool. And this is coming from someone who really dislikes Emma and thinks Psylocke's cool (in the comics,Psylocke's a British Psychic Ninja with Psi-Swords!), so that's saying something.  Too bad we won't have a rematch, since the show got cancelled (PLEASE BRING IT BACK, DISNEY!).


 Oh, and whole, "Emma Frost got killed off" thing.


 Okay, NOW I've listed 'em all.

The Awesome Valentine's Day Gift of KH3D

  So, it turns out Tetsuya and the people over at Square-Enix have given us a Valentine's Day gift. And I, will give you the gift of sharing it, because all my followers are my valentines this year.

  Here it is, Happy Valentine's Day, courtesy of Square-Enix...

  So here's what I gathered from the trailer:

  • We'll get more explanation as to why Axel Lea's back. And it appears he's on a path to RRRRRRREDEMPTION!
  • Sora's story appears to have to do with him dealing with the fact his heart is, as comic I read put it, "A freakin' apartment complex".
  • Braig is back, too. (Um, yay?) Still holding out for Demyx, Luxord, Marluxia, and Larxene to come back so we can find out their real names (my money's on Myde, Ludor, whatever Marluxia's is, and Arlene).
  • We'll get to go to The World That Never Was! Huzzah!
  • Atlantica will apparently appear(?) (>:( That's not Phineas and Ferb...)
  • There's some Weird Red Bug-Eyed Organization Hood Guy involved. Let's call him "Bright Eyes" until we know his name...
  • ...And Sora's got some sweet dance moves.
    So, I'm psyched even more than ever. I want to see Riku and Sora's stories! I want to see what Lea will be up to! I want to learn who Bright Eyes is supposed to be!

  So, Happy Valentine's Day people!

The Freak's Ranking of the Kingdom Hearts Games (So Far)

 Well, with Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance coming up soon and fast, I felt the need to list the Kingdom Hearts games from the ones I was not as blown away by, and the ones I simply adored.


  6. Re:coded This is probably my least favorite game in the series. It wasn't horrible, but it was sort of... eh. Not exciting, but not a waste of $35. It was interesting, the different "game styles" in the world (but the Hollow Bastion gameplay was a tad annoying). Plus, the pictures for interactions instead of 3D lip-locked characters WAS a little less... weird. But I admit, having freakin' CLOUD as a party member in Olympus Coliseum was pretty cool, even if it was for a few seconds.

 5. Re: Chain of Memories Okay, for starters, I didn't have TEH EPIC HATEZ for the Card System that most people have. Yeah it could be annoying (DANG IT, TINKER BELL! QUIT MAKING ME HAVE TO TAP TRIANGLE FOR HEALTH! YOU GAVE IT TO ME INDISCRIMINATELY IN KHI!!) but it wasn't so bad. Plus, I could summon FREAKIN' CLOUD to slash things! Huzzah! And, of course, there was Axel. THIS was the game that made me fall in love with our favorite red-haired, wise-cracking pyromaniac. The exact moment? Two words and an action: "Good Bye." *snap* That is all.

 4. Kingdom Hearts II This was a very good sequel. It introduced us to the stylish Roxas and the rest of Organization XIII. There were some fun times, and the Commands were easier (though I hated that I had to change the side to get Summons) and being able to change Party members without going to the Main Menu. But I disliked that it felt kind of easier and FIGHTING FREAKIN' DEMYX!!! DARN YOU, DEMYX! FIGHTING XEMNAS AS THE FINAL BOSS IS EASIER! But still, it was a good game.

 3. Kingdom Hearts The one that started it all. I remember when I first played it, I excitedly was telling my Dad about how awesome the opening was ("And then, I (Sora) looked over and saw me ,falling from the sky, then I was falling, and..."). And there was that immortal moment when Sora sacrifices himself to save Kairi. And then Kairi saves him. Aww... The first game is a classic. Truly, a classic.

 2. 358/2 Days This is the better of the two DS games. I like the fact it had Multiplayer missions and the story. It introduced me to Xion (whom I adore). And I loved the fact it had cutscenes (Re:Coded had them, too, true, but Days was first, so I was more impressed). I also loved the immortal line: "Roxas, that's a stick." Anyway, it was a good game, and I played it nonstop. I was always itching to play it again.

 1. Birth by Sleep This game was amazing. There's the technical stuff, like the graphics, but also the other things. I loved Ven the minute he got excited for a meteor shower. And Aqua was awesome, I think we can all agree. And Vanitas, he's just such an evil jerk... I love him that way. And there is Zack Fair from Crisis Core. Lord, I need to play his original game. Just... Overall, it's just... it's just an awesome game. It was TOTALLY worth buying a PSP.

  So, that's my take on the games so far. I love this series overall. It's kind of hard to rank them, but I have. I can't wait for the next installment. So, what are your guys' thoughts?

Saturday, February 11, 2012


  Well, Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance box art has been unveiled. (*gasp* Just like the post title says!) And here it is:

 This is just amazing. I almost wonder if there's foreshadowing. Sora falling as Riku rises up. Maybe it's symbolically showing Riku will rise to the occasion and rise up as a hero. Boy needs some nice things to happen to him.

   But then what does that mean for Sora? Will Sora have to face some INTERNAL DARKNESS!? That would explain my beloved, evil Vanitas appearing. OOH! Ooh, ooh, OOOOOOOOH!!!!! Will we have Vanitas and Sora having a battle in the center of the mind? heart? Will Ventus, Roxas, and Xion appear to give him backup in that senario? I hope so! The fact Mickey's reaching for Sora sort of supports my "Sora's INTERNAL DARKNESS" theory.

    Also, I dig the stylized "10" (the Keyblade and the heart) to symbolize the 10th Anniversary of the series. Wow, ten years. Has it really been that long since Sora first had his Dive Into The Heart? Ten years since Riku was possessed by Ansem, Seeker of Darkness? Ten years since Tetsuya Nomura and the guys at Square-Enix proved to the world they COULD make a Final Fantasy/Disney Crossover work? Crazy how the years fly by...

   Well, that's the Japanese cover art. The North American cover is still possibly, as Young Justice's Robin would say, "veiled". I hope that the North American cover is the same as this one.

  Well, that's all the news I got for today! Your thoughts?

The 1st Annual Loveable Freak Flag Awards: Nominees *VOTING CLOSED*

   So, I saw the results of The Golden Globes (I couldn't watch them, NBC kept screwing up >:(...), and was displeased by the results. Mostly because 1) Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows was not nominated (but maybe it wasn't out in time), 2) Superhero movies are NEVER nominated, 3) I rarely know what half the movies up are (It's usually the first I hear of most of the flicks), and 4) Two of the Animated Movie nominees I saw that I felt should have won (Rango and Puss in Boots) did not.

  And the Oscars are more or less the same.

 That's why I've decided to have my OWN awards! Featuring outstanding and entertaining moments and people/characters in movies, TV shows (read, mostly cartoons), and for the heck of it, video games.

 So, without further ado, the nominees for the 1st Annual Loveable Freak Flag Awards!

*Awards may not have all categories due to the creator of the awards not having any ideas for some "typical" award, :(, and some categories have more nominees than others .*

  • Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides)
  • Robert Downey Jr. as Sherlock Holmes (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows)
  • Chris Evans as Steve Rogers/Captain America (Captain America: The First Avenger)
  • Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II)
  • Rango
  • Puss in Boots
  • Phineas and Ferb: Across the Second Dimension
  • Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows)
  • Data-Sora and Data-Riku (Kingdom Hearts: Re:Coded)
  • Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr/Magneto (X-Men: First Class)
  • Captain America and Bucky  (Captain America: The First Avenger)
  • Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows
  • Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
  • Captain America: The First Avenger
  • Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II
  • X-Men First Class
  • Rise of the Planet of the Apes
  • Phineas and Ferb
  • Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
  • Young Justice

 Eh, it's all I got so far. So, if anyone wants to vote on any of these, just go into the Comments and place your votes until 3/8/12. If not, then, well, we'll cross that bridge later...

  So, there was a Super Bowl Ad for The Avengers, and an extended one on YouTube. Here it is!

  Okay, should we give Robert Downey Jr. his "King of the Universe" crown now, or wait until the movie.

  Also, I soooo want a T-Shirt that says "Avengers: We Have A Hulk" now.

Quick KH3D News-Thingy

  'Kay, so maybe I was misinformed about The Firebird being the boss for the Fantasia world (Symphony of Sorcery) in Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance, as I said earlier. But CHERNABOG will be a boss for Riku. NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!! As I said before, it took me a good long time to beat KHI Chernabog.

  Oh, and there will be seven worlds in need of awakening in the game. There are six that have been already said, so there's one more left to reveal. My fingers are still crossed for a Phineas and Ferb world. C'MON! I WANNA SEE SORA AND RIKU IN DANVILLE!
  Wouldn't it be awesome if P and F had a world in KH, if Phineas says a line in a "conversation pit" (you know, places where you can talk to characters without cutscenes) alluding to the fact Vincent Martella (Phineas's voice) was in Final Fantasy XIII. Something like:
"Hey, Sora! That's a cool sword you have! Wish I had something like that. Like, I don't know.... a boomerang! Hey, I know what we're gonna do tomorrow!"
  No, I haven't played FF XIII, but I would still find something like that awesome. I got a soft spot for Actor Allusion. Anyway, guess we got to wait a while for the last world to be revealed. Besides, Japan's getting the game next month, so it's only a matter of time before we find out.

 I can't wait to find out about North America's release date....

Overused Plot Parody #6: He Got Irked!

  So, I finally got an idea for these again! After the epic fail that was "Back to Tak" , I came up with a next instalment of the series after a hiatus.

  Ladies and Gents, I give you....

                                He Got Irked!

   Zim and Dib were in the heat of battle in Zim's lab. Zim had captured people as test subjects, and you know Dib wouldn't let that go on.

   Zim shoved Dib into a weird generator, labeled "The Plot Device", that just so happened to be in the corner. When Dib hit the generator, something flickered on his face. It was an Irken face. Zim freaked out. "The Dib? Half-Irken?" Dib tilted his head. "Really? That's your first conclusion?" Zim ignored Dib. "COMPUTER! SCAN THE INSIGNIFICANT IRKEN IMPOSTOR!" "Yes, Alliterative Master!" The computer replied, scanning Dib.

  "Sir! Dib is inexplicably an Irken." Zim and Dib freaked out. "My kind, soiled!" Zim screeched. "My life! Ruined!" Dib shouted. There was insane giggling. The two horrified enemies looked left to a container holding a girl.

  "Yay! You two can work together to destroy mankind!" Dib raised an eyebrow. "Why would I do that?" The girl smiled. "'Cause your gunna looooooovve each other!" Dib and Zim were disgusted. "Or maybe you're brothers!" They were both  doubly disgusted, and Zim was about to rant about how the mighty Zim had no siblings, and he was too amazing to have relatives, anyway. Then the girl made a blasphemous claim so horrible, the author could not bear to write it.

  Zim lost it. "COMPUTER! KILL THIS HORRIBLE HUMAN FULL OF LIIIIIIEEEEESSSSSS!!!!!!!" Zim looked around. "Where is the disgraceful Dib-Irken?" The Computer answered, "He left, saying something about wanting to end it all rather than be the same creature as his worst enemy..." Zim scowled. "Eh, I can't let him do that! Only I am allowed to end the Dib! Selfish abomination..."

  Zim began to storm out of his lab. "Eeeeeeee! He's gonna save Dib! He DOES love him..." The girl squealed. "COMPUTER!!!" Zim called. The Computer analyzed the human. How was he going to end her? Lasers? No, they'd been overused lately. Neurotoxin? No, that seemed like another AI's shtick.

   Suffocate the human in a liquid-solid? "That's original...." He mused. Yep, The Computer was going to go with that....



 Well, there you have it!

  And relax, no eleven-year-old boys committed suicide in the creation of this FanFic/Parody...

Proof of Darren Criss's Awesomeness

    So, I watched Glee last night and was a little lost as to the plot, 'cause I missed some episodes. Anyway, that's irrelevant. Afterwards, I had to make this:

 That is all. Now I leave you with the awesome "Smooth Criminal" cover from the episode.
