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...


Persona 5 Official Design Works Artbook Review

Persona 5 Official Design Works is one big heavy artbook... Probably the biggest I've seen at 512 A4 pages, 1.6kg. It reminds me of the the free telephone directories that are distributed to homes in the UK but, the paper and print quality's much better of course. Shows how much thought went into the game and why it's oozing with quality...


Official Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero Novel Gets Drama CD

Can't get enough of the FFXIII story? Well, "Final Fantasy XIII Episode Zero - Promise", a set of novellas that take place before the events of the main game, has been freely available for reading online for some time now. Only chapter one of the story "Encounter" came on a bonus drama CD with the 5 disc, First Press Limited Edition of the...


Monster Hunter 5th Anniversary CG Artworks Book

Now this is the format Makoto Shinkai's "Sora no Kioku" artbook should be in but I guess he had no say in its layout. In commemoration of Capcom's Monster Hunter series' 5th anniversary, a 310 page "Monster Hunter CG Artworks" book containing over 1700 pieces of CG from every title in the series so far, went on sale yesterday. This...


Devil Survivor Mugs and Glass Tumbler

Devil Survivor fans will soon be able to buy themed black and white mugs from March onwards or go for a customisable glass tumbler in April. There's nothing much to say about the mugs but, the glass holds 320ml of liquid and has a rubber bottom to prevent it from sliding off slippy surfaces. It can also handle temperatures between 90 ~ 30C...


Persona 4 Scarf, Pendant and Jack Frost Mugs

Wouldn't mind wearing this instead of my current scarf but unfortunately, it appears to be unavailable for order currently. I think only people who have played Persona 4 will recognise the pattern while everyone else will just see it as a bright flashy scarf in the streets. The white Jack Frost Mug B and drinking glass set look pretty...


Monster Hunter or Moe Hunter, You Choose

Want some Monster Hunter figures but don't like the official ones? Well, how about this Moe Hunter dressed in a full set of Gypceros S armour? Looks like the Felyne's trying to cook the pet piggy! And yes, it really exists and looks like this in Monster Hunter Portable 2nd G. Not sure about what skill points and attributes it offers though...


Black Mages 3rd Album, Darkness and Starlight

Didn't know the Black Mages are ready to release their third album, "Darkness and Starlight" next week on March 19th. It's been a while since I listened to their rock re-mixes of Final Fantasy music but I remember their first album was great. Second one was so-so because it didn't contain as many good re-mixes, though. On the first...


Final Fantasy Potion Not Enough? Try the Mana Energy Potion

So, the Final Fantasy Potion beverage has your HP covered but, what about MP? Well, looks like you'll soon have that covered too because Harcos have a Mana Energy Potion up for orders! According to the site, drinking the 40ml beverage will give you 160 additional mana points or in real life terms, four cups of coffee to keep you up and...
