Code Geass The Complete Guide Arrives, Content Impressions

Just received my copy of the recently published "Official Code Geass The Complete" guide book from my penpal. Had to ask him to get it for me because my usual import sites didn't have it at the time (at least not the ones that didn't charge a huge postage and handling fee!). If you want to order this now though, you can get it from Yesasia. The...


Super Paper Mario Arrives a Little Late, Does My PAL Copy Have the Glitch?

I decided to put in a pre-order for Super Paper Mario anyway despite using the reserved cash for my printer last time (tight student budget). Again, I opted to pay the extra 99p for 1st class delivery but unlike the time with Trauma Centre SO, I wasn't so lucky this time. Instead of arriving on its release day yesterday, it arrived this...


Another Century's Episode: The Final Arrives but No Pre-order Artbook

Mecha action game "A.C.E. 3: The Final" that came out in Japan last Thursday arrived from Play-Asia but unfortunately, I was too late for the bonus hardback artbook goodies. I pre-ordered a week before the release date so considering the popularity of the series, I wasn't expecting to get it anyway. Others that pre-ordered it as soon...


Gyakuten Saiban 3 DS Arrived Today with Capcom's Little Gift

The official release date for Ace Attorney 3: Trials and Tribulations was yesterday in Japan but, the game was already dumped a good few days before then as usual with big titles. Didn't have time to try it out though but anyway, my own legitimate copy of the game arrived this morning along with Capcom's first press edition gift. It was...


Installing the PS2 Swap Magic Wasn't as Hard as it Sounded

Helped my brother install the Swap Magic cover on his SCHP-50003 PS2 today. He decided to go with the Swap Magic 3 Coder Plus and the Slider Tool Pro because he didn't want the console chipped to play imports. Was a bit worried when I was going to remove the front CD cover because people were saying how easy it was to break the clips. It was...


Trauma Center Second Opinion Arrives before Friday Release Date!

Woohoo! Dispatched yesterday and arrived this morning. Wasn't expecting it to be that quick with the extended strike going on. And the official European release date for Trauma Center Second Opinion is supposed to be Friday as well but, I'm not complaining. I'm glad I pre-ordered and paid for 1st class delivery with Gameplay. Saying...


Wii Play Here at Last, A Collection of Wiimote Training Games

Just when I was thinking about e-mailing Gameplay about my order yesterday, the package arrives this morning. It just also happened to be the day when the highschool exam results are sent out but that's another topic. Usually you'll see a student with straight As appearing on the news but haven't watched it today. I don't usually do...


Mario Strikers Charged Soccer Impressions

First thought when I loaded up "Mario Strikers Charged Football" was how bad the graphics looked but then again, it was the same when I first loaded up Zelda:TP... The Wii's graphics just doesn't look that great and it bothers me a little because I know there's much better hardware out there. But as long as the gameplay's good, I can look...
