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...


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...


Shadow of Memories Getting a PSP Port

The PSP ports don't stop coming... Shadow of Memories, yet another a former PS2 game, is going to get a PSP port on October 1st. It appears there will be no new content and the adventure game will just be the same as that released back in 2001. I still have the PC port in English as you can see. Wanted to play some Japanese games at the time but...


Case of Yuffie Translation Completed, Site Revamp and Thoughts

In "Case of Yuffie", Yuffie makes her way back to Wutai after separating with the others and was very excited about the welcoming party she was expecting to receive. However, things don't quite turn out that way as she learns the damage the Lifestream has caused around her home and is warned to keep what she has been involved in a secret...


Bandwidth Troubles, June 2009 Edition

Some of you may have noticed my blog went down again for a couple of hours last night. Looks like that sample HD video I put up for my review of the Canon Powershot SX200 compact camera ate up a fair bit of bandwidth. The file itself was just 60MB but it still ended up eating a total of 7.5GB, ending my quota for June! Fortunately, it was once...


Only The Japanese Appreciate the Work of Others?

Here are the results of the recent international poll on the Wii's "Everybody Votes" channel asking, "At the end of a movie, do you watch the title credits to the end?" And the majority of results for every country apart from Japan was "No" surprisingly. Well, I guess pretty much everyone here does leave at the end of a movie in the...


Summer Sky Shot June 2009

Just felt like posting this shot of the evening sky I took about a week ago. Been paying a lot more attention to the sky since taking a liking to Makoto Shinkai's works after watching 5cm. With the weather so hot during the day, it's been great going for my 30 minute jog 6 in the morning when the sun's already shining brightly but while the air...


Case of Nanaki Translation Completed, Thoughts

You can now read my translation of Case of Nanaki up on my other website FFVII Novels. Before anyone criticises my translations, I'd just like to point out that I'm simply sticking to as close to the original text as possible. Despite it's been almost 4 years since Kazushige Nojima wrote the last two stories of On the Way to a Smile, his...


Building Another PC, Problems with the XFX 8200 Mainboard

The old PC I gave to my brother broke down for some reason and since the components aren't as widely available now, he decided to build a new one with my help. Nice blue glow eh? Too bad the "bubble lights" on the Galaxy III Black case aren't the sort that really bubbles with water inside. The bubbles inside don't move at all. So the side is...
