One Piece: Nefeltari Vivi Glitter & Glamours Figure, Bootleg Version Review

Crane game prizes from Japan are popular items for being sold and they are quite cheap even in Japan going for around 1500 Yen (£10). AmiAmi sells them for around the same price and they're quite good quality for that price compared to the more expensive scale figures that can cost up to £180 each. However, even crane game prizes can have...


Valkyria Chronicles 4 Review

It's been a looong time since Valkyria Chronicles III on the PSP - more than 7 years ago. We had a mediocre arcade style spin-off Valkyria Revolution but that didn't quite satiate the fans hope for a real new VC game so needless to say, there was plenty of excitement when VC4 was announced. Valkyria Chronicles was a special game on the...


Railway Empire, Campaign Tips

The game seems very straight forward during the first 3 chapters which are basically tutorial levels and as long as you expanded your network faster than the AI, you'll fairly much win. However, chapter 4 really puts what you learned to the test so here's how I managed to achieve the tougher objectives. Bumping up Atlanta's population...


Railway Empire Review

It's been a while since I played a PC game since getting consoles. The PC gaming landscape has changed from when JRPGs used to be almost non-existent to the point where you can find a whole range of them on Steam now. That said, it still can't beat consoles in terms of choice if you're into Japanese games. One area PCs still excel in are...


Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Tips and End Game, Collecting Those Rare Blades

I've thoroughly enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles 2 despite not liking the slow battle system at first. So much that I decided to continue playing after finishing the game to fight all the unique monsters, collect all the Rare Blades and complete side quests for the extra cutscenes. Collecting all the rare blades and maxing out Poppi QT...


Monster Hunter World Review

The Monster Hunter franchise has long been on Nintendo consoles so it was quite a pleasant surprise to learn it was getting a new game on the PS4. Playing the games on Nintendo consoles was fun but they were visually lacking thanks to the underpowered hardware. Now we have Monster Hunter World that has thrown out the comicy look Capcom...


Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review

I enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles for both its gameplay, open world and presentation. I liked it so much that when I sold my Wii along with its games to clear up clutter I ended up buying it again for the New 3DS. So, needless to say I was really excited when a new game was revealed for the Switch. I was even going to hold out on the Switch until...


Hong Kong Japanese Pop Culture Stores Re-Visited

It's been 8 years since I last wrote about where to find import Japanese pop culture/otaku Anime goods in Hong Kong so I thought I'd write about it again. Not much has really changed since that post in 2009 but there are a few new shops I discovered that I didn't mention back then. Import Japanese goods are pretty much everywhere in Hong...
