Namco Bandai Bringing Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day To The West This Spring!

So happy. I’ve been waiting for this announcement =^_^=

Ranko Tsukigime is one of five stories which are part of the Short Piece series. Ranko Tsukigime’s Longest Day is the only story in the series which is a game and is designed by Suda 51 (No More Heroes, Killer Is Dead), and Yohei Kataoka (Tokyo Jungle). The game will be released via Playstation Network sometime this Spring. Here’s a look at how the game is below:

A Retro Recap Of The Final Fantasy XIII Series

This was pretty funny and cool. Yes this is official. Square-Enix released this themselves lol.

Ar NoSurge Gameplay!

Best gameplay video ever lol. We may not have gotten Ciel no Surge, but by the looks of this one I hope and think it has a chance of getting localized. All the gameplay and cinematics look very fun and exciting. I’m a big fan of the Ar Tonelico series, and this game is no exception. The characters, environments, and music are all beautifully done. We’ll just have to wait and see what they decide to do with this one.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Coming West In Early 2015 For 3DS

I’ve never played a Monster Hunter game before, but I know the series is very popular. Here’s a video message from the games producer:

Watch Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn Live Letter From The Producer XII!!! (Subtitled)

Someone recorded the event that took place earlier today going over the future content to come in the 2.16 and 2.2 updates.

*There is a slight delay between the subtitles and the video, but still excellent videos regardless* (more…)

Anime Of The Week 1/17 – 1/19…….. Witch Craft Works EP 3

The first anime of the week of the season goes to Witch Craft Works. The plot thickens here in this ep and Kagari shows us something pretty interesting for the first time. It was pretty exciting to see her transform like that into whatever she did lol. Kagair is my favorite character this season. She’s a fiery angel of death lol =P

Monster Monpiece Coming This Spring To North America And Europe!

Monster Monpiece Main Girls

When I saw this news I was just like O_O! lol

Yes Monster Monpiece. The Compile Heart game where you pinch, touch, and rub monster girls is getting localized this Spring lol. It will be available as a download on the PSN. In case you were wondering what the game is like, its a card battling game with RPG elements. In order to localize the game Idea Factory and Compile Heart had to censor some of the card images due to their “Strong sexual nature” apparently. The cards themselves haven’t been taken out of the game, it’s just that some images will be limited to their level 1, 2, or 3 evolution form image. Even though I hate censorship in general, I’m still going to get it simply because I want to play the game, and IF made it clear about the changes in the statements which I posted below. It’s actually a miracle that we’re getting this kind of game at all lol. Here is a list of the cards which have been changed:


Monster Monpiece Card Censor List

Here are 2 statements from Idea Factory explaining things. Their original statement, and one response taken from the IF forums in response to a customer to clarify things:


Idea Factory International, Inc. would like to inform fans and prospective users of Monster Monpiece that we have made the decision to remove several Monster Girl images from the North American and European versions of Monster Monpiece. The gameplay, game system, and storyline are fully intact and Idea Factory International strives to localize and publish Idea Factory titles with the same content as their Japanese releases.

Here is the list of Monster Girls whose images have been limited to that of their level 1, 2, or 3 evolution form due to the strong sexual nature of the card images: Vampire, Kraken, Goblin, Cockatrice, Kobold, Skeleton, Titania, Bahamut, Fia, Brownie, Pegasus, Mandragora, Mau Sibau, Rafflesia, Death Scorpion, Phantom, and Tengu.

We fully understand that there are needs and demands for the complete version of these games. Our intention and motivation is to offer Idea Factory titles in a form that is as close as possible to the Japanese versions. This was a tough decision, but we would greatly appreciate your understanding and support.

Forum Response:

“Dear Jacob,

Thank you very much for taking your time to contact us!

answer your question, the number of censored cards are about 40 cards out of approx. 350 cards. So, more than 300 cards are intact from the original images. Please note that none of the stages, ability/stats and
Monster Girls character has been cut off, but replaced these higher
level monster girl images with the “less exposing” lower level version
of the corresponding monster girls.

We hope this will make your concern clear

Again, thank you VERY much for your kind support!!!

A New Dark Souls II Trailer

Dear Lord this game looks great. My wings will burn in anguish, yet I shall spread them again and again.

Check Out The Job Classes In Bravely Default

I played the demo and I have to say that the game is well done. Bravely Default comes out February 7th in North America.

A Plan For The New Year / Upcoming Posts

New year, new beginnings. I know my posts have been somewhat slow, but I plan to change all that soon. I really want to get back to my site, and making it a place where people can enjoy posts having to do with anime, video games, music, etc….. With that said I’ll be getting back to doing video game reviews, posting music, and yes my Winter 2014 Anime Picks will be out soon. I believe I’ve finished watching all of the new anime that has come out this season last night so now I can get started on my picks. As for video game reviews I haven’t been able to do any simply because I really wasn’t playing any console games for a while. Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn as well as some other MMO’s had taken up most of my gaming time. Why not do reviews on those games? Well because there are many sites who do reviews on MMOs, there aren’t man sites does reviews on certain games that aren’t company based, I guess I can say lol. I’m just a normal gamer like all of you sitting in my room playing these games so I can say and feel certain ways about games that others can’t sometimes lol.

I’d also like to announce that I’ll be headed back to school this year too. Yay me lol. While going to school and work take up some time as well, most of it was due to the MMO playing =P. So even though there many be some dry days, I’m definitely going to keep up posting still. I’ll be getting back to console gaming this year too as there are many games I still have to beat and want to review as well. I will be doing reviews on some MMOs too in case you were wondering lol.

Alright then. That pretty much sums up my thoughts and feelings for this year at the moment so I hope you all continue to visit here and lets have a wonderful new year =)

A Dekamori Senran Kagura Trailer!

Who knew cooking could be so bouncy lol. Dekamori is a cooking-rhythm game in which you well, cook lol. Just like the other games though, they are stripped down if you fail at cooking. This is indeed very interesting, and looks like a lot of fun. Can’t say if this one will be localized or not, but hey we’ll just have to see what the future holds. Check out the opening movie below.

Senran Kagura 2: Deep Crimson Announced!

If you didn’t know, I love the Senran Kagura series; and they just announced a few new games for the series. While Deep Crimson was announced a few days ago, there was a live stream of a Senran Kagura event last night that I watched, and they actually had a gameplay video for it. I have to say that I really like the changes they made to the game. The combat is different, the combos look even more fierce, and the graphics have improved a lot. Especially in certain areas……. lol. I’m excited for the new game, and since we got the first one, hopefully it wont take as long for this one to be localized as well.

Senran Kagura Estival Versus On Multiple Consoles!

In this case multiple consoles means multiple Sony consoles. During the live stream of the Senran Kagura event it was mentioned that the console for Estival Versus had already been chosen, but they also continued that it would be multiple console as well. Out of the 3 I’m really hoping it comes to PS4 as well. Seeing the Senran Kagura girls in 1080p would be no less than glorious lol

Kritika’s Newest Character Yoran

Welp, I know who I’ll be playing with first =P

Winter 2014 Anime Picks In The Works

I’ve watched most of the new anime that has come out so far last night. Some still haven’t started, but hopefully will come out during this week or this weekend. Out of the ones that I did watch I can already say that there were some fun ones. I’ll have my picks out as soon as I can =)
