There will be free goody bags for people who turn up, a costume competition judged by Nintendo themselves for a chance to...


It's that Catchy Finnish Song Again, Now Synthesised with Vocaloid2

It's pretty amazing what you can do with the internet. First, all a UK student done was rent a domain, setup a blank page and offer some pixel space for "sale". It bagged him over US$1,000,000 with what seems to be very little effort although I'm sure the publicity the site got really helped. The whole "time capsule" idea seemed to have...

Don't let that picture of cute innocent looking girls fool you for this is not your common harem Anime show like Love Hina.

Based on an adult visual novel game of the same name which is infamous for its "bad endings", the story...
