Doraemon Nobita no Shin Makai Daibouken DS, 2007 Remake

The Doraemon re-makes continue although this is the first time they've re-made their movies I think. With the new remake movie ?????????? ?7??????? which gets released March next year, Sega is releasing a second card game. I grew up watching Doraemon and I still enjoy watching it. Too bad the site I get my RAWs from don't supply them...


Detective Evangelion, Murders in Tokyo-03!

Gainax isn't going to stop producing any more Evangelion goods anytime soon it seems... "Meitantei Evangelion" from Brocolli is a PS2 adventure game where Shinji and the others investigate mysterious murders in Tokyo-03. Nice word play... While the characters are still up against Angels (Shito, ??), this time they have to catch...


“Secret of Evangelion” - A Second Series?

Well, it's the 10th year anniversary for the Neon Genesis Evangelion series. Gainax has been continuing to release lots of merchandise related to that series during the time period including renewed versions of the Anime series. Too bad I already bought the VCD set when DVDs weren't even out yet or I would have bought it. Anyway, I...


Windows Vista Ultimate Version Free

Until June 2007 at least... Microsoft has released a free Release Candidate version of their new operating system for people to try out on their site. All you have to do is visit the site, register for a key and then either order the demo disc or download the ISO. I didn't manage to get it to install on my main desktop PC for some reason but, I...


It’s a “Wii” Interview with Shigeru Miyamoto

Not long until the Wii officially goes on sale now and pre-orders are shooting sky high everywhere from what I read. Not surprising really when it's a whole new way of playing games. It's all about immersion into a fantasy world after all and being able to swing your arms around to play games instead of hitting rigid buttons is just one...


Final Fantasy III OST and Bonus DVD Impressions

Just had a listen to the FFIII DS OST which was released last Wednesday and it's not bad. All the tracks are really too short though because most of them are just over a minute. I do like the opening tune, "Reminiscence of the Wind" and the Black Mages did a great remix of "The Final Battle" as usual. Two tracks isn't enough to convince to buy...


How do you Fix a PC without any Drives?

Yes, how do you get Windows XP installed on a PC when its optical drives are all dead and the SCSI ones aren't being recognised in DOS. That's the kind of PC someone dropped at my house to get "fixed" and they didn't know USB CD-ROM drives don't work in DOS without the right configuration... Well, I don't know if knowing how to use Linux would...


Gyakuten Saiban Gets the Haruhi Suzumiya Treatment

Otherwise known as "Ace Attorney" in the West, Gyakuten Saiban is being given a makeover using characters from the popular Anime show Suzumiya Haruhi. Obviously this isn't an official game but a fan made one. Even so, fan made games do sell in Japan and a fine example would be beat-em-up game Melty Blood being based on Tsuki Hime. The...


Legend of Heroes VI PSP Demo Discs at Akiba

With the upcoming launch of the PSP port of "Legend of Heroes VI" and Taiwanese port, "Gensou Sangokushi II", cosplayers dressed up as Estelle and Scherazard are giving out those Falcom demo discs at the Sofmap main store in Akiba. Wish I could get my hands on one of these demo discs for collection purposes! Sadly, none of my contacts in...


FFIII Crystal Edition Worth 50,000 Yen

That's right. Despite being "sold out" on the first day, some shops like this one here in Akiba is selling the Limited Edition of FFIII for near 50,000 Yen. I'm sure importers have a lot to do with this huge inflation in the price. Even so, I notice Play-Asia.com still have some in stock so, order quickly while you still can. Who knows...
