Classic Anime Shows, From VHS Tapes to DVDs

So I've been spending the past few days dubbing a whole bunch of VHS tapes which explains why there hasn't been any episodic Anime posts so far this week. Got over 50 hours of home videos to help dub over to DVDs... Not a lot in comparison to the ten year span they were recorded within to be honest. Anyway, while I've been doing that, I've also...


Sony RDR-HXD870 DVD Recorder Review

Parents got me to choose a DVD Recorder for them so that I could transfer all the home videos over to DVD before the VCR becomes completely obsolete. Originally they wanted a combo box with a VCR built in but, I decided against it and went for one with a built-in hard drive instead so that it would be easier to edit the movies from the player...


Bomberman Blast WiiWare

This is my second WiiWare purchase and I have to say it wasn't a very good one. Thought Bomberman Blast WiiWare would have a story mode so I went ahead and bought it before I found out I got it mixed up with the retail shop version. 1000 points (£7) for a game that only features a small number of simple single goal oriented modes on very similar...


Dot Hack Link for the PSP

The latest title in the .hack franchise, .hack//Link will be for the PSP and feature all characters from previous titles whether they appeared in an Anime show, light novel or Manga. There isn't much detail about the system yet but, the story will be presented in Manga style and will take place in an evolved version of The World, The...


Sony MDR-V300 Headphones and PC Front Panel Interference

Decided to pick up a pair of headphones so I could enjoy my media and games without disturbing other people in the house at night. Wasn't really sure which one to get since there doesn't appear to be that many good headphone review sites about. Instead of opting to order online, I went to the high street stores because I wanted to see them...


White Album 03

Episode 3 Summary"Hand in hand, shoulder to shoulder, back to back and then... It's OK to touch above the clothes, isn't it?" Touya just manages to pick up the phone after returning to his room. It was Rina calling asking if she was still his goddess of good fortune for the day. He was grateful that she brought Yuki along and she tells him...


FFVII Advent Children Complete to Have Three Editions

Just look at the reflection of Edge City on that Materia... Can't see that much detail on DVD. Not that the scene exists in the current version anyway! Famitsu reveals there will be "three editions" of FFVII Advent Children Complete which is a Blu-ray HD version of the RPG movie sequel with 30 minutes of new original footage. They will...


Bully Scholarship Edition Review

It's been years since I played Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto on the PC but, I haven't played any of the recent games because I got bored after Vice City but, I decided to pick up Bully Scholarship Edition because there's not many decent titles on the Wii at the moment. The game begins with a brilliant opening with some cheeky humour. James...


The Move to a Dual Core Setup

Built this machine just before the new year. My graphics card have been acting up for a while now - It's been overheating and causing artefacts on the screen. Since I've been wanting to try out some of the latest PC games I decided to have a look for a new AGP card again, something better than my Radeon 9800XT. The best I can find with this...


The Shinkai Collection

Got round to watching Makoto Shinkai's "The Place Promised in Our Early Days" after picking up ADV's "The Shinkai Collection" DVD set. Before I watched 5 Centimetres per Second, I had decided to avoid his works after being disappointed with Voices of a Distant Star. Then after watching the movie out of curiosity and being impressed by...
