FFVII Advent Children Complete Postcard Book

On the back of each postcard, you'll find the wolf emblem for sticking an 80 yen stamp and a quote of the featured character in English. The postcard with Tifa in her Avalanche clothing was pretty amusing. The quote is, "Not until... He gets a lecture." I didn't know she meant that kind of lecture! Ouch! Then again, I think she changed her...


Sony DSLR-A200K Camera, DSLRs and Compacts

Finally decided to take the plunge and went for a DSLR because I like taking night photography and it's difficult to snap them without much noise on the Canon Powershot A720 IS. Not to mention I also wanted to snap photos in RAW so that they don't suffer from lossy JPEG compression (in theory). Somehow, I ended up with yet another Sony...


Sony MDR-EX500LP Earphones Review

Decided to pick up a new pair of earphones for myself because I'm currently only using the pair that came with the Meizu Mini Player and they have no bass. They were beginning to nag after getting a pair of better headphones and speakers. After browsing around, I thought I'd spend a little more on a pair of quality earphones. Well... At...


Guitar Hero III Legends of Rock Review

Decided to pick up Guitar Hero III for the Wii because the whole controller game package was going for half price at HMV and I haven't played the Wii for a long time. Well... Maybe besides the fortnightly Mario Kart competition but they don't last long. I never went for it because it was expensive and the songs just didn't seem like my kind...


160GB Toshiba Store Alu 2.5" Mobile Hard Drive

Decided to buy myself a portable hard drive to back up all the photos and short videos I've been taking with the Canon A720 IS. Originally thought of buying another 32GB flash drive but, they're too small because I've accumulated over 40GB of photos since getting my first 2MP digital camera. So, I went for this small budget 160GB Toshiba...


JLPT Study Guide and Mock Test Books

I've been thinking about taking the JLPT for a while now because the official certification for my self-learned Japanese should come in handy if I ever work in Asia or at least for a company that has branches in Japan. I still haven't done so yet because I'm not too confident about passing and I have to go all the way down to London to take it....


Console Cable Switching Time

The old TV broke down in the house which meant we had to get ourselves a new one. Obviously that meant going for an HDTV with a digital tuner built in so that we were ready for the digital switch over. My parents blame my Wii because they both showed an increase in red colours before they drew their last cathode rays. I don't think the Wii is...


Creative Inspire T6100 Speakers Review

I've returned the Logitech X-540 speakers now and decided to go for Creative's Inspire T6100 which also has many good reviews. I originally wanted to go for the slightly more expensive newer model, the Inspire T6200 just for the wired remote but I couldn't find any reviews about them. They also use dual cone drivers for the satellite...


Logitech X-540 Speakers Review

I almost got the wrong parcel when I received this by City Link in the morning and it gave me quite a scare because I had already signed for it too! I was stupid enough to give the guy back the wrong parcel before he exchanged for the correct one. Luckily it was an honest guy and he came back with a much bigger box but I really need be on my toes next...


Chrono Trigger DS Review

Decided to buy the Chrono Trigger DS after all. A classic RPG with a rare bonus pre-order soundtrack CD was just too good to pass up over here in the UK even if it does only offer two orchestral tracks. Have to say I like how the full colour manual uses Akira Toriyama's illustrations. They look much better in print than on the tiny DS...
