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...


The New "Squiggly Bridge" in Glasgow

They finally completed and opened up the new "squiggly bridge" (it's yet to be officially named) while I was away in HK. The shape is supposed to look like that of waves. I guess the engineer never imagined it would be used as a slide when he/she designed it. Went to have a closer look and I found a lot of slide marks down the slopes in the...


A Peek Inside the FFVII On the Way to a Smile and Beast Player Erin Novels

Looks like I didn't have to wait long for my novels after all... Look what the postman dropped off this morning. EMS is expensive but you have to admit it really is quick - Quicker than air mail. Dispatched from HMV Japan and arrives in the UK the next day. I knew FFVII On the Way to a Smile is in hardback but, I didn't know the Beast Player Erin...


FFVII On the Way to a Smile Novel Out of Stock

Decided to put in an order for the Beast Player Erin and FFVII On the Way to a Smile novels since I couldn't get them while I was in HK but, it looks like I'm going to have to wait a while because Square-Enix is currently out of print so I will probably get a second batch copy like I did with Makoto Shinkai's 5cm novel. Oh well, at least HMV Japan...
