Monster Hunter World Review

The Monster Hunter franchise has long been on Nintendo consoles so it was quite a pleasant surprise to learn it was getting a new game on the PS4. Playing the games on Nintendo consoles was fun but they were visually lacking thanks to the underpowered hardware. Now we have Monster Hunter World that has thrown out the comicy look Capcom...


Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review

I enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles for both its gameplay, open world and presentation. I liked it so much that when I sold my Wii along with its games to clear up clutter I ended up buying it again for the New 3DS. So, needless to say I was really excited when a new game was revealed for the Switch. I was even going to hold out on the Switch until...


Hong Kong Japanese Pop Culture Stores Re-Visited

It's been 8 years since I last wrote about where to find import Japanese pop culture/otaku Anime goods in Hong Kong so I thought I'd write about it again. I visit HK frequently so it's worth knowing about these places for me being a big fan of Japanese video games and Anime. Not much has really changed since that post in 2009 but there are a...


Hiking in Hong Kong - Trail Section 8 Dragon's Back

Hong Trail Section 8 AKA "Dragon's Back" is referred to as the "best hiking trail in Asia" by a lot of English travel guides so I had to see for myself after tackling Wilson's Trail Section 2. It's longer at 8.5km instead of 6.6km but supposedly easier. I chose to go during the weekdays when it's less busy and it was 24C - Pretty much a...


A Tour Around Hong Kong Wetland Park

I decided to go to the outskirts of Hong Kong, Tin Shui Wai to visit the Wetland Park because it looked like an interesting place to visit. To get to the park you can take the metro to Kowloon Tong Station before switching to the overground trains to Hung Hom. Then you can take the tram and if you get off at Tin Sau Station instead of Wetland...


Hiking in Hong Kong - Wilson's Trail Section 2

I go to Hong Kong quite often so I've pretty much been to all the tourist traps. Since I usually hang out in the shopping centres (or plazas as they call them locally) I decided to try and find something different to do this time. Hiking. Originally I wanted to cover the more notable "Dragon's Back" first because it was supposedly easier...


A Tour Around The ToySoul 2017 Exhibition

I've never been to a pop culture related exhibition in Hong Kong before but then I saw an ad for this toy exhibition "Toysoul" and decided to pop along to see if it was something worth visiting for a Japanese pop culture fan. You can get 1 day pass ticket from 7 Eleven for HK$30 which is really just a receipt than a fancy looking ticket. If you...

Tokyo Xanadu Visual Guide Artbook Review

I didn't really enjoy Tokyo Xanadu so it was a good thing I bought it second hand. However, I do like it's artwork - well, nearly all Falcom's artwork are good. Even Makoto Shinkai worked for them before after all. So I decided to import this A4 160 page "visual guide" artbook. Unfortunately, the wrapper arrived damaged because the proxy...
