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....


Sting's Hexyz Force Official Site Open

From the developers of quality RPGs such as Riviera, Yggdra Union and the more recent Knights in the Nightmare, Sting Entertainment is set to bring another fantasy RPG filled with multi-branching dialogue. Due on November 12th on the PSP, the world of Hexyz Force is divided into Light and Darkness. The player will have a choice to play...


Wii MotionPlus and Wii Sports Resort Review

The Wii MotionPlus accessory has been out for several weeks here but funnily enough, the software that really shows it off Wii Sports Resort wasn't released until last Friday. As you can see, they come with their own bigger rubber case... But I don't use them so I just took them off. Plugging the accessory in makes the Wiimote a fair bit...


Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey Officially Revealed

It's not for the PS3 as I was expecting from the "leak" last time but maybe that's good news since I'll be able to play it! I guess the DS could be considered "new hardware" since it has received a proper SMT game yet. Shin Megami Tensei Strange Journey will be for the DS on October 8th. Taking place in the early 21st century, a portal to...


Another Code R: A Journey into Lost Memories Review

One day, she receives a letter from him asking her to go see him at Lake Juliet so that he can talk about her mother Sayoko. She dreams of her...


Professor Layton and The Eternal Diva Trailer

Looks like the upcoming Professor Layton movie, due on December 19th, finally got a proper subtitle. It's now called "The Eternal Diva" instead of "The First Movie". As far as the story goes... One day, Professor Layton receives a letter from his former student and opera singer Jenice Quatrain. She tells him that her close friend...


Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Unofficially Revealed

Someone has noticed a link to a logo buried within the source code of Atlus' new teaser site but it has now been removed. This is why coding can be a pain... You have to be careful about what you put in the code ^^; It's not Persona 5 but it is a MegaTen title. Apparently, "Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey" will be officially revealed next...


Evangelion Rebuild 2.0 Sneaky Cam Edition

Well, this didn't take as long as the last movie to get camcorded... Kind of tempted to watch the whole thing since the DVD release probably won't be available until next year if the first movie is any indication but, that would just lower my anticipation of getting my hands on the actual package so I will refrain ^^; I did have a skim...


Hong Kong TVB Channel Gets a Reference in Canaan

Haven't really been watching or playing much lately but, decided to give "Canaan" a try because of all the good things I've heard about it. Then I spotted the TVB logo on the Air Caina TV in episode one... The scrolling Chinese headline barely made sense to me. If "Engrish" is a term for bad English then what's a term for bad Chinese I...
