A Look Inside Makoto Shinkai's First Artbook

Finally got a hold of Makoto Shinkai's first artbook, "Sora no Kioku" and it wasn't easy considering how well the first batch has been selling. Don't get this confused with the "Complete Book" that was released for "The Place Promised in Our Early Days" because that was more of a fanbook that contained everything related to that movie...


Wii Fit, A Compelling Package for Basic Exercises

Despite watching the parody trailer and knowing how much it was going to cost, I still went ahead and pre-ordered Wii Fit and managed to slip one in on Amazon before it got pre-sold out. The demand is so high it doesn't look like the price will drop any time soon and it is a first party Nintendo title. Yesterday I received the package which...


Mario Kart Wii, A Smooth Online Experience and Fun New Tricks

Decided to pick up "Mario Kart Wii" while I was waiting for my copy of Wii Fit to arrive. Finding a copy was pretty difficult. About a week after release, there was still plenty of stock in both shops and online stores over here. However, another week later and it was pretty much sold out. Fortunately I just happened to find one store online...


Dance Dance Revolution: Hottest Party Wii Package

Ordered this from Amazon.co.uk recently. Never played any of Konami's DDR games but since I got into the rhythm games Ouendan (remade as Elite Beat Agents in the West) and DJ Max Portable so much (I hope the hints about DJMP3 are true!), I thought I would try out the DDR game that just came out for the Wii over here. Try stepping to the rhythm...


Getting Your PSP Online with Xlink Kai and a Wireless Adapter

I used to use Datel's Wifi Max to connect my PSP to Xlink Kai so that I could play Monster Hunter online but, I've decided to pick up this Buffalo WLI-U2-KG54L Wireless G Adapter for £15 from Misco. I had a hard time trying to find a list of recent wireless hardware that support Xlink Kai. The list in the official forum are mostly wireless...


No More Heroes EU Version, Impressions and a Comic Manual

キタ━━━━(゜∀゜)━━━━ッ!! That's the second time I've said that because once again, No More Heroes was something I had been waiting in anticipation for for a long time. I pre-ordered my copy with Gameplay and fortunately it managed to arrive today so I can spend the weekend on it. Great how they (almost) always seem to get my preorders...


DBZ Budokai Tenkaichi 3, Dragon Ball History Summed Up in 8 Hours

Decided to buy "DragonBall Z Budoukai Tenkaichi 3" after hearing about the delay No More Heroes had to go through and having nothing much else to play on the Wii a few weeks ago. Launching the channel you'll hear someone reading out the entire game title in a cheezy way which doesn't give very good first impressions. However, this is...


Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure, 13 Hours of Wiimote Goodness

I didn't really have my eye on "Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure" because the story and adventure puzzles didn't seem all that appealing. Then the game reached the Western shores of NA and many good reviews, video clips started to crop up on the regular gaming sites I read so, I decided to give Capcom's first foray into the world...


A Collection of Kaomoji-kun and Other Gashapon Minis

There was one more thing I ordered together with the 5cm novel and that was one of these Kaomoji-kuns. Look at which one I got. No, he's not giving you the finger. I really need a camera that lets you adjust the focal points with a better macro mode ^^; The Yujin Gashapon figures are randomly picked so I don't know whether it was by...


Byousoku 5 Centimeters Novel Makes It Through New Year Post

キタ━━━━(゜∀゜)━━━━ッ!! やっと届けましたよ! Yes! The 5 Centimeters per Second novel has finally arrived from YesAsia after much waiting and trying out many ways to get it. I was expecting one of those smooth covers judging by the image retailers have up on their sites but, the cover outside the hardback book is actually a rough one. The book is...
