Eliyo Virtual Pet Game – Browser Based Virtual Pet Game Like Pokemon and Wajas

I recently joined a new virtual pet site called Eliyo. The site seems to be less geared towards breeding, and more geared towards battling and leveling your pets in an almost Pokemon-like way. As you battle you gain experience and level up. Upon leveling up you can distribute stat points. Occasionally you may learn new skills and if necessary be asked if you'd like to overwrite existing skills to make room for the new ones. You and your opponents have various elemental strengths and weaknesses, and you can capture wild pets by using prisms similar to how you can capture Pokemon using Poke Balls. There are different types of Prisms with varying degrees of success, and just like Pokemon, sometimes the monsters will break out of the balls (or prisms in this case) or flee before you can catch

Princess Maker 2 Refine – Now Available in English on Steam

I reviewed Princess Maker 2 awhile back, one of my all-time favorite games. You can check out my review of Princess Maker 2, here. In that review, you will see that I say the game was never released in English - because at time of my writing that review, that was true - although the game was fully translated and a leaked copy could be found online -- with age and technology, it became increasingly difficult for some people to get that old dos copy of the game to run on their newer machines... It seemed Princess Maker 2 was destined to just fall into obscurity - although many similar games (typically by English speaking fans) both indie and commercial have come out in recent years... Princess Maker 2 never saw the light of day.... Nor did any of the sequels.... Until this happened.

Everything We Know About Nintendo Switch – Nintendo’s New Gaming Console and Handheld – Release Date March 2017

UPDATE: 1/18/2017: We now know the launch date is March 3rd, Price is $299.99. Preorders have already begun and appear to be nearly sold out at most retailers. There will be two versions of the console, each identical except for the color of controllers. In one version they are grey like the console itself, and in another version they are neon red and neon blue. Interesting to note, you can purchase additional/new/replacement joycon sticks for example, the neon red and blue, ones separately from retailers such as Gamestop. So even if you can't preorder the exact color console you want (For example, I was hoping for the neon one, but had to get grey, and honestly, feel happy/lucky to have even been able to preorder the Switch at all), you can simply buy these new Joycon sticks and swap them

Porter Robinson’s Shelter Is an Anime – and Here’s Why

I just watched a short film - or more precisely, a music video by Porter Robinson. Although he is an American artist, he contracted with A-1 Pictures a famous Japanese anime studio -- It's being marketed by crunchyroll (who most people associate with "anime") -- and the film first debuted in Tokyo, Japan, to an audience of Japanese people. Although it is marketed for worldwide release and distribution, it was developed, drawn, animated, and premiered first in Japan and made by a famous anime studio consisting of largely Japanese staff. It is a Japanese animation, or anime for those facts alone. It's true that similar "Big Eye, Small Mouth, Brightly colored" animated films are NOT anime - I fully agree. RWBY and Avatar and Kora for example are not anime - because they are not made by Jap...

Kimi No Na Wa – Your Name – Makoto Shinkai – 2016 Anime Full Length Featured Film Movie Review

I just got done watching Kimi No Na Wa, this year's record breaking summer box office smash that is still topping the charts for almost 3 months now in Japan. The film is directed by Makoto Shinkai who also made anime such as 5cm per second and voices of a distant star. All of his works follow a common theme of fated lovers who are separated by either distance or time. And Kimi No Na Wa is no exception to this overarching theme throughout his works. What is a slight departure from his previous works is the use of several vocal tracks throughout this film - Maybe this is the new hot trend in feature length anime films in Japan right now? Because "I've Always Liked You - Confess Your Love Committee" (which I reviewed here) also has about a half dozen vocal tracks. - Kimi no na wa ha...

October Boxychan Unboxing Anime Subscription Box Review

Another month, another awesome box of anime and manga goodies from www.boxychan.com - You can check out some of my other boxychan reviews here, and here. - I've been subscribed since May, but haven't reviewed every box. I do put pics of every box on my instagram though which you can find here instagram.com/xenokitten - Boxychan and Pusheenbox remain my top two favorite subscription crates. I subscribe to both with my own money and am in no way compensated for blogging about them. They don't even have a referral program - I just love boxychan so much, and I think it is far less widely known than similar boxes such as Geek Fuel and Doki Doki. This month's Boxychan has a beautiful figure from Madoka Magica O_O!! It's by far my favorite figure I've received in one of these subscription crat

I’ve Always Liked You – Feature Length Slice of Life Shoujo Anime Movie Review

Just finished watching "I've Always Liked You - Confess Your Love Committee" on Crunchyroll and had to immediately type up a review because that's how much I enjoyed this anime. Everything about it was so relateable and the cute artwork and numerous vocal songs throughout made this just an amazingly memorable movie to watch. I've been going through numerous tough times in my own relationships or lack there of, this year, breaking up with someone, trying to date other people, liking people that will never like me back, feeling awkward, nervous, excited, scared, sad, happy, overwhelmed at times even, or at times, just the reverse, dating people who liked me way more than I felt towards them.. So in that regard, I could relate to every single character and the overall theme of this anime i...
