Games of The Year 2013 and Onwards

While browsing through my gaming news sources I came by some "Games of the Year" articles so I thought I'd write my own to sum up 2013's year of gaming. I used to be a PC gamer but as my interest grew in Japanese exclusive Anime and games and, I started to have a proper income I moved to console gaming. Internet made it easy to import games and...


Rain for PS3 Review

Rain (not to be confused with Heavy Rain) was a PS3 exclusive, download only game that caught my attention when I saw some news coverage of it on Japanese and Western sites alike. So, I decided to give it a try despite no playable demo beforehand. It turns out to be quite a short but pleasant adventure game. On a rainy day, a young boy catches...


Guide to Becoming IdolM@ster - The Second

Yes, I know. 3 years late but better late than never. Had this written up long ago but never made the time to finish off the edit since there's little chance of any English speakers importing this ^^; Anyway, 120 hours of IdolM@ster 2 on the PS3 and got the platinum trophy. Looks and plays much better than the PSP game which only let you...


Persona 4 Golden - Platinum Trophy Guide

Happy New Year, Readers! Hope you've enjoyed your holidays. Me? I've been enjoying my import copy of Persona 4 Golden. Pretty late but I didn't decide to get a PS Vita until I ran out of decent JRPGs on the PS3 ^^; I've got quite a few things to say about the PS Vita's design (mostly bad things) but that's another story. It was probably a...


5 Centimetres Per Second Novel English Translation Completed

Finally got round to picking up the half done translation. Pretty hard to believe it's been two years since then. Time flies, eh? If I wasn't a software developer myself it would have been quite tricky translating all the parts about programming. Other than the finished translation, you'll also find I've added Shinkai's Twitter feed...


Scotland Loves Animation 2012 - Nerawareta Gakuen, Wolf Children ::

I always end up thinking "Anime" instead of "Animation" but then I just noticed this K-ON poster is written the same too! I guess "Anime" does mean animation in French but I still prefer it means Japanese animation when used in English. So this year's Scotland Loves Animation 2012, the movies were... Both cinemas: Glasgow Film...


Persona 4 The Golden / Vita Trophies Revealed? ::

It seems the trophies for Persona 4 Golden/Vita has been leaked. Don't read on in case you're worried about spoilers! If you don't know what trophies are, they're basically "side quests" for games on the Playstation 3 and Vita that you can fulfill to get a nice icon on your online PSN profile... Sounds pretty pointless but, I think they...


PS Vita Room Preview Event

Dropped by the PS Vita Room at Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow which lasted for just under a week from January 24th - 29th. Nice friendly staff around. Even the security guards were being the doormen. I didn't bother the staff with any questions since I read enough about the PSP successor ever since the rumour mill had been running so, I...
