Scotland Loves Animation 2011 - Hotarubi no Mori e Producer Q & A ::

It was the second year running for "Scotland Loves Animation" at Glasgow Film Theatre last weekend. Last year they had Evangelion 2.0 and Trigun. This year we seem to have a common theme of mythical beings. Apparently Letter to Momo won't be screening in Japan until 2012, Spring so we got to see it first here (as well as those in...


Theme Hospital on a Modern Windows PC

Been feeling like playing Bullfrog's classic "Theme Hospital". It really is a brilliant game despite being over 10 years old and I highly recommend you try it if you haven't already! You run a hospital trying to cure humorous fictional diseases like "Bloaty Head" by popping them like balloons, "Slack Tongue" or "Invisibility". Then...


Atlus's New Persona 4: Golden and Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena

So, you've all been expressing how much you wanted a Persona 4 Portable after hearing how Hashino wasn't willing to develop one until the space issue was resolved. Well, it looks like PS Vita has solved the problem by offering over 16x more space on its NVG Cards than the current PSP's UMDs and now, details have emerged for Persona 4 - The...


World War Z in Glasgow ::

The production of World War Z has been underway in the city of Glasgow for the past few weeks. It's a US$30 million movie based on a novel of the same name and stars Brad Pitt. Apparently they chose Glasgow over the real Philadelphia because of the tax breaks here which means it would be cheaper to film. Naturally I went out during the...

Essential Android Apps

It's been a while since I upgraded to an Android phone and I thought I'd share some of the apps that I find invaluable. The downside I find with Android is there are fewer quality apps i.e. well designed user interface, few bugs and fulfils its goal well. And to top it off, they're usually buried beneath a huge range of rubbish and spam...


Steins;Gate Official Materials Artbook, Q&A

I've become such a fan of Steins;Gate's story after playing the game I decided I had to find the "official materials" artbook. Unfortunately, since the book was published for the original Xbox360 game 2 years ago and Huke's artwork is so popular, it seems to be sold out everywhere. Fortunately, Amazon JP managed to restock the 2300 Yen...


Steins;Gate - Story Synopsis & Game Mini Review

Interest probably grew in the Otakusphere towards Steins;Gate because of Black Rock Shooter since it is illustrated by the same artist Huke and, I admit it was the art that caught my eye in the first place when I saw an article about the game. Then it was the story line. Since I can't discuss the game spoilers in the forums I might as well...


5 Centimetres Per Second One More Side Novel

Thanks goes to FallingStar for tweeting to me about this! I must have missed Shinkai's tweet about this somehow! It's been over 4 years since 5 Centimetres Per Second premièred in Japan and since then, it's been novelised and manganised. Now it's getting another novel, subtitled "One More Side" - But it's not a sequel. The original 5cm...
