JiPoshy is back, and this time with a weekly digest. 

We'd like to thank everyone who was patient with us during our transformation into 2014, and would also like to introduce a new series into our articles which can only be classified as a "blurb". We're constantly working on new articles around the clock and looking into the possibility of being more open to suggestions. 

We strongly encourage comments for the simple reason your opinion might be powerful enough to influence someone who reads it. So feel free to click through our site and experience some of the most thought provoking questions the world has to offer. If you have any suggestions, feel free to contact us. 

This week has been a hectic one for us, mainly with the complete overhaul of our site in a matter of days. If you haven't noticed all the graphics and pictures have been changed. (With the exception of a couple that are currently being worked on.) Why you ask? We were a little too hasty to launch and things just didn't feel right. 

  Enough with the updates, thanks again for visiting us. Our social networking profiles will start flowing again soon we promise. Sharing is caring. Get money, but in the meantime - green time.

We came across some pretty interesting things over the past couple of days. Take these Elvis Collector Edition: Reese's Peanut Butter & Banana Creme Cups for example, pretty interesting right?

Maybe the stories of Elvis' love for peanut butter and banana sandwiches are far more interesting. Joining "The King" in intestinal pain, constipation and obvious weight gain just doesn't sound very appealing to us.

Peanut butter and banana together? As nasty as it sounds, it is a very popular combination. Would you try one of these? Seriously? We'll pass.

Ok seriously? "It's NOT for girls!" and why is that?  Anyway they have changed their wrapper, but still it was a pretty ridiculous slogan. Not only did it cause an uproar in certain communities of feminist but it really didn't make men buy it either. So much for the marketing strategy.

Apparently Kit Kat is pretty popular over in Japan. So popular they have more flavors than Baskin-Robbins. Some of the flavors we found were so bizarre we just had to share. 

Flavors like Ginger Ale, Sweet Potato, Soy Sauce, Bubble Gum, Creme Brulee, Green Tea, Banana, Fruit Parfait, Honey Comb, Veggie, Soy Sauce, Blueberry Cheesecake, Shrimp, Hamburger, Caramac, Mango, Royal Milk Tea, Black Sugar, Cookies and Cream, Cookie Dough, Blood Orange, Cantaloupe, Chestnut, Coconut, Caramel Macchiato, Red Bean, Pineapple, Apple, White Chocolate, Toasted Soy Flour, Muscat of Alexandria Grapes, Salt and Caramel, Pumpkin, Potato, Sweet Corn, Watermelon, Apple Vinegar, Strawberry, Cherry, Wasabi, Orange Cream, Shinsu Apple, Pancake, Black Honey, Chili Pepper, Mayonnaise, and over 200 more.

Now to be fair, some of them are not so bad, but get real. 

Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga and Jay-Z shoot video together? Well not exactly. 

YouTube channel Bad Lip Reading released a video of the trio together in one song. The channel known for matching lip reading with original lyrics for comedy actually made a good song. The song "Morning Dew" can be heard below and downloaded on iTunes. 

If you stayed with the video after it was over then you probably already seen a snippet of there other videos. 

They've parodied the likes of Coldplay, Miley Cyrus, Rebecca Black, Gotye, President Obama, Mitt Romney, the Twilight films, The Walking Dead and many others. 

If you haven't caught up with the PS4's and Xbox One's of the world, don't feel like such a loser just yet. PS3 and Xbox 360 still have plenty of good games set for release this year.

One of those games - Lighting Returns, may be the primary focus right now. With February 11th in clear sight, fans are counting down the days till they embark on the final chapter in the saga. 

With an all new battle system, new enemies, new worlds and countless outfits you can customize, it looks very promising.

What do you think? Has the trailer convinced you to lock in a pre-order? Maybe hit the game store on its release date? Or maybe you're not impressed at all?
