Just something I randomly came by again while exploring the "spiritual world" of the internet - The top 10 characters in September's issue of the Newtype magazine. For the top ten male characters, we have... Wasn't really expecting Shinji to be up there. Maybe Lelouch but with Code Geass finished and the Evangelion Rebuild remakes...


VDigi VD-W2 Wii VGA Cable Review

Here's a solution for anyone wanting to use their computer monitors to play their Wii on - The VDigi VD-W2 Wii VGA Cable. Thought I'd try it out because I wanted to move the console into my room and my monitor doesn't have component, HDMI or AV inputs unfortunately. Design Here's a close up - There's the VGA connector itself as well as the...


Noriko Sakai Arrested in Suspicion of Drugs

Was browsing about the BBC News site randomly to see if I could find anything about the earthquake that Danny Choo posted about because my penpals live there. Then I came across this... Noriko Sakai being arrested for drugs. Pretty surprising when I realised she was the actress from one of my favourite dramas, Hitotsu Yane no Shita...

Western Digital 1TB My Book Essential Edition Hard Drive

Thought I'd back up my entire digital music collection into a single place instead of DVDs so I picked up a 1TB Western Digital My Book Essential Hard Drive. Of course, I'll still be using the smaller 160GB Toshiba ALU drive because this isn't so convenient to set up with a separate power supply. Packaging The hard drive is well...


Presents at Moomin Valley DS

I really enjoyed the Moomins show when it was on TV here in the UK and went onto reading the English translated Swedish books back in primary school. Found I still do like it when I watched it going through all my old videos. Anyway, kind of surprised it's getting a game since it hasn't been getting much exposure of late. Due on November...


FFCC My Life As A Darklord Review

The next Square-Enix WiiWare title "Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: My Life As A Darklord" is now out in Europe for 1000 points (£7) with additional content costing more with Pay to Play scheme... A lot more. Monsters have been forced into hiding in a tower by heroes and the "kind" Darklord Craydall offers to be sealed away into a...


Nintendo Wii Hardware and Software Mods, Going Region Free

Decided to take the plunge and add a chip to my Wii because there was a number of Japanese only games I wanted to play or just games I wanted to play in their original Kanji context such as Muramasa The Demon Blade. It was also partly because the recent DriveKey chip doesn't require any soldering. Despite saying that however, it's not easy...


SMT Strange Journey Official Site and Trailer Up

The official site for Atlus' latest Shin Megami Tensei title, Strange Journey is up as mentioned it would be last time. I think Meguro's doing a good job with the music so far if the trailer's single soundtrack is anything to go by. It doesn't have the same pop style P3, P4 and indeed the more recent Persona PSP had....
