Happy Bonfire Night 2009

Hope you guys and girls had/have a good night out for those of you who celebrate Bonfire Night! Mine was.... Quite a mix of events. First time I popped into town to watch the fireworks but, can't miss a good opportunity to experiment with my DSLR camera ^^; At the end of the night I had... Quite a night. I don't mind people walking pass the...


Autumn Stroll 2009

Went out again this year to capture some seasonal autumn themed photos to use for my blog's banner except this time I was using a DSLR instead of a compact. I went to a number of different places this year and captured many photos but not all of them turned out good of course. Originally I wanted to capture autumn coloured leaves of...

Case of Shinra, Reunion of the Turks Thoughts

Some thoughts about what I've translated so far of Case of Shinra. Spoilers ahead. Considering how much FFVII literature I've translated, I'm starting to think maybe I should also go ahead and translate Makoto Shinkai's 5cm novel as well instead of just having summaries for it but... We'll see. Anyway, thought we were going to get to...


Ys VII (Seven) Review

First thing's first. People seem to have confused Ys The Oath in Felghana being Ys7 so I'd just like to make it clear Felghana was really more of a side story like Ys Origin. I guess that's why Falcom decided to write the English word "Seven" instead of using the Roman numeral. So the Ys ARPG series has reached its seventh title, "Ys Seven...


Bandwidth Trouble October 2009

Oooo, bandwidth ran out again this month, one day earlier than last month I think - Probably because of the sudden surge of P3P fans coming over from Livejournal and GameFAQs for translations. Of course, lots of visitors is always a good thing for a site but just wondering how many of them will be returning visitors now that the game is out...

Atlus Express Vol. 10 P3P Special

As expected, Atlus Express Vol. 10 talks about P3P due for release next week and answers some of the questions fans have sent in. Most of the article are points we already know but, in addition to the list Azusa Akido mentioned on the official blog, we have the following cleared up... Well, the data install makes sense since the Memory...


New Bigger Screen DSi to Appear This Year

According to the investor's website Nikkei, Nintendo is planning to release a new version of the DSi which came out last year in Japan - Boosting the screen by twice its size to 4 inches and going for around 18,900 Yen (same price as the current DSi). Apparently it is aimed at the young children and elderly folk who may have difficulty...
