Xenoblade Chronicles 3D: Why I gave up on a ‘masterpiece’

Xenoblade Chronicles 3D title screen

It takes a lot for me to throw in the towel with an RPG. More often than not, I'd drift away from a game and still think about how I'll finish it one day. Not this time, not with Xenoblade Chronicles 3D on the New Nintendo 3DS. A bit of background A few years ago, I… Continue reading Xenoblade Chronicles 3D: Why I gave up on a ‘masterpiece’

Some pretty awesome Atlus 3DS games are now on sale

Etrian Odyssey Nexus

Nintendo can be a strange company. While the company is focussing on the Switch as it's primary seller, it has yet to really abandon the 3DS and 2DS lines -- even if developers haven't. It's because of this lack of focus that consumers aren't often told about sales for the 3DS console. Who doesn't want… Continue reading Some pretty awesome Atlus 3DS games are now on sale

When did Showmax start showing anime?

This morning, I booted up Showmax for the first time in a while and was greeted with recommendations for the Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex movies. Thing is, I'm pretty sure these anime titles weren't on here a few weeks ago. What is Showmax? Showmax is a South African-based online streaming service created… Continue reading When did Showmax start showing anime?

Last weekend, I finally started watching Star Wars: The Mandalorian. I know that I'm now behind all of the cool kids and that everyone else has seen it, but eh – it's not getting Disney+ where I am. Anyhoo, after a few episodes, I needed to own a piece of the series. And where do… Continue reading LEGO’s Mandalorian Battle Pack, a small slice of a big show

If you're living outside of North America, chances are you don't know about the Games Workshop (GW) exclusive board games at Barnes & Noble (B&N). Chances are if you are living in the US, you haven't heard of them, either, because they're not marketed at you. I've previously written about Space Marine Adventures, a cool-looking… Continue reading The Games Workshop board games exclusive to Barnes & Noble

I may have an obsession with all things Warhammer; I may have an obsession with games that I never get around to playing. Of late, I've gone through every nook and cranny of the Games Workshop site, various hobby online stores and forums, consuming everything I could.

If there's one title that encapsulates my love of board gaming, it's Descent: Journeys in the Dark. But if there's one game I always think of when it comes to board gaming, it's Warhammer Quest. Fun fact: I've never played Warhammer Quest. Err… Warhammer Quest? This all started back in primary school. I'd become friends… Continue reading Warhammer Quest is my Holy Grail of board games

5 awesome-looking compact versions of popular board games

I love board and miniatures games, but I just don't have a lot of space to store them. It's a pity, because who doesn't want to have a behemoth like Gloomhaven or Twilight Imperium in their collection? Due to this capacity conundrum, I've started taking an interest in smaller versions of popular titles. Now, I'm… Continue reading 5 awesome-looking compact versions of popular board games

SD Gundam Matsuri is amazing and I don’t know what was going on

SD Gundam Matsuri Headers

It's rare when the YouTube algorithm recommends something I actually want to watch (it loves pairing Slipknot with Jeremy Loops). Last night, something called 'SD Gundam Matsuri part3,' which was in Japanese without any English subtitles. I didn't know what I was getting into and dived in. After its 54-minute run-time, I can honestly say… Continue reading SD Gundam Matsuri is amazing and I don’t know what was going on
