Dragon Raja – Free Anime MMORPG Mobile Game

I recently started playing Dragon Raja, a full featured MMORPG on smart mobile devices. Overall Score: 75/90 83% B “Very Good Game For Girls” Overview: 10/10 Dragon Raja is a beautiful game with amazing character customization and open world environment. Play as one of four starting classes and three “races” (male human, female human, or a kawaii lolita race (all of my characters are loli because they’re sooo cute!!) The character customization is the highlight of this game to me. Story, Gameplay, and Music are all pretty great though really. Geeky: 5/5 The character customization, combat, graphics, and gameplay earn high marks. Sweetie: 5/5 The cute anime style graphics and Lolita race and visual novel style choice system as well as very advanced character customizati...

Love Live All Stars Anime Rhythm Game

The sequel to KLab’s smash hit Love Live School Idol Festival, Love Live All Stars takes it to the next level with fully animated Live2D characters that dance around on the screen. Like its predecessor, Love Live School Idol Festival, Love Live All Stars is a card collecting rhythm game with cute anime girls to collect. The new installment in Love Live has a few key differences from the original, most notably is the animation. There’s also costumes you can unlock for your girls to wear and a new voltage gameplay system that allows you to score more points. The key elements are the same with perhaps more focus on story this time around. You play through the story to unlock new songs. You train your girls and level them up and unlock new skills with a branching skill path f...

Why Do People Play Murder Mystery Games?

Interactive games are the perfect choice to have a lot of fun. Suddenly, you are feeling bored and you have a lot of spare time on your hands. Gather your closest friends and invite them for games and snacks. Board games are also a lot of fun because they involve a lot of people.  Sometimes it is not so satisfying to play a game on your own. It could be interesting for a while, but then you will easily get bored. Besides, having to socialize and laugh is good for your mental health as well.  One of the most popular games in the world is the murder mystery game. People are practically obsessed with it.

The Influence of Anime Culture on the Gaming Industry

What comes to your mind when you hear the phrase “Anime Culture”? This movement dates back from the early 1917 and has influenced the evolution of many other cultures. It has inspired many famous artists, innovators and trend setters. Known for the progressive element, innovation and creativity, anime is today the leading inspiration among creators and influencers. The anime genre fascinated and inspired a lot of industries. It’s no wonder that it’s also making an impact on the casino industry. This genre at first referred to film, TV, comics and video games. But let’s be precise-what is actually anime, and how it can be defined?  Anime is a shortened term that stands for animation which covers all forms of animated media. This style is often characterised by colourful graphics...

Starlight Stage A Pop Idol Card Game By Japanime Games

I recently received Starlight Stage A Pop Idol Card Game from RightStuf. RightStuf is one of the oldest and largest distributors of Otaku merchandise in the US. Check out their website at www.RightStuf.com for everything from anime, manga, action figures, Japanese candy, games, and more. I decided to purchase Starlight Stage because I’m a fan of mobile idol games and idol anime such as Love Live, Utapri, Bang Dream, Ensemble Stars, and yes, Idol M@ster. I do not know for sure if this board game is based on Idol M@ster but I suspect it is, since one of the early and most popular Idol M@ster mobile games is titled Idol M@ster Starlight Stage. For whatever reason though, if it is in fact at all related, they stripped it of the Idol M@ster title and just dubbed it Starlight Stage. E...

Sweet Dance Online Anime Dressup Mobile Music Dancing Game

I just started playing Sweet Dance, a pretty cute mobile game with a variety of music hits from around the world. Songs include English hits from the US and Europe as well as Chinese, Korean, and Japanese tracks. The game has several different dance modes. In the first dance mode, bubble mode, you must simply tap the bubbles on the screen. In Trail mode you must tap left, right, or both sides of your screen depending on the colors of the bubbles. Pink is Right. Blue is left. Yellow is both. The beginning mandatory tutorial only makes you play Bubble mode so I was confused when I played Trail mode but eventually figured it out. There’s also a beat mode which is like DDR for your fingers. In beat mode you must quickly punch in a sequence of arrow movements and then lock in your sequ...

If You’re A Hot Wheels Collector, Better Read This

If You’re A Hot Wheels Collector, Better Read This  I think that at some point of our lives, we tend to find something that really grows on us. Like, we become attached to it and we want to have more of it in our lives. I don’t know if you’ve found yours yet but I’m pretty confident that you eventually will. It just so happens that some people find this “thing” in their lives early while others discover it much later on.  If you’re not quite sure of what I’m talking about, well, I’m talking about your life collection. That’s right; I’m actually referring to collections as in objects that you like to hoard over long periods of time. Sometimes, even for life. Every person has that one special thing that they can’t get enough of. For example, stamps. Many people are in...

Japan Legalizes Casino Resorts – Can We Expect Kawaii Anime Casino Games In Japan’s Upcoming Newly Legalized Casino Resorts?

Japan recently legalized "vegas style" gambling casino resorts. One thing that has always been true in Japan is that Japanese culture is all about "cute" or as they call it "kawaii" - it doesn't matter if you're young, old, male, female, it's everywhere. While Las Vegas is associated with glitz, glamour, and sex-appeal; I bet we will see a different type of "theme" overall in Japan's upcoming casinos. If I had to bet, I'd say we'll see a lot of interesting kawaii games, kawaii mascots, kawaii marketing/promotions, and lots of games with cute anime girls. Japan's gambling casinos are still in early development and planning stages, but you don't have to wait to play games. You can play some cute casino games online right now at http://scr888-malaysia.com/ Konami and other game developers

Replay FX Retro Gaming Convention Pittsburgh PA

I attended Replay FX, a retro gaming convention in Pittsburgh PA. I really enjoyed my time there, and definitely plan to return next year as well. The convention includes hundreds of arcade games, console games, and board games. All of the electronic games are from the 80s-90s with no modern games in sight so it's definitely aimed at Retro gamers. They had tournaments for Dr Mario, Tecmo Bowl, and Smash Brothers, to name a few. They also had a cosplay competition. There are large cash prizes for all of the competitions. We didn't enter any competitions this time, but I did cosplay, just for fun. I brought out my Love Live School Idol Festival Kotori Cosplay Costume again - I've been wearing it a lot lately, and also plan to wear it again soon for Animu at the Zoo also in Pittsburgh,...

BTS World Game Review

BTS now has an official visual novel style game that puts you in the role of managing your favorite boy band. Unfortunately, it is a great concept but has poor execution. There are lots of features which sound fun, but somehow still miss the mark. Even if you love BTS, which I do, this game still feels dull and boring. But somehow it's cute, and I still find myself playing it and hoping it will get better. I'm grateful they made this game and took time to translate the text to English. Even if it is rather mediocre at best. Check out the full review below. Name: BTS World Genre: Visual Novel / Otome Game / Dating Sim / Manager Sim Publisher: Net Marble Where To Get: Android: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.netmarble.btsw&hl=en_US Iphone: https://a

Mr. Love Queen’s Choice Mobile Game Review

I had downloaded this game, Mr. Love Queen's Choice, months ago, and forgot all about it, until I saw someone on instagram sharing a video stream of the game, and I was like wow that game looks fun. Then I saw it was by Elex, makers of Love Nikki Dressup Queen, and I was like, I need to play this game. Since then, I've sunk probably 20 hours into the game and am really enjoying it so far. Title: Mr Love Queen's Choice Genre: Simulation Publisher: Elex Platform: IOS and Android Where To Get: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.elex.paper.lovegp Release Date: I think I must have used Qoo App, because I am already playing the game, and it says Pre-register on the play store. Or maybe I got into beta? I am not sure, anyways, yes I am playing the game currently.

Idol M@ster Shiny Colors – Japanese Mobile Game Review and Kinda Brief English Walkthrough

I am really into Idol M@ster Shiny Colors. Unlike other Idol M@ster Mobile Games or Love Live or Bang Dream, Idol M@ster Shiny Colors is not a rhythm game. Idol M@ster Shiny Colors is a simulation game. You are a producer and "hire" idols to work in your studio. You draw the idols from gacha. Please note - I did not realize this when I played, but on your first 10 play gacha, you get UNLIMITED REROLLS by pushing the YELLOW BUTTON on the left. Once you are happy with your cards press the PINK button on the right. I didn't know, I pushed the pink button and I only had one SSR. I have been thinking about starting over (and still might) but I think I had some pre-registration bonuses and other things I don't want to lose by restarting the game. So definitely do not push the Pink button ...

Qoo App Is The Easiest Way To Play Japanese Google Playstore Games On Your Android Device

There are many tutorials out there for how to play Japanese Google Play Store Apps on Your (non-Japanese) Android Device. When I got my Google Pixel 3 a few weeks ago I researched how to install games such as Idol M@ster Million Live. I found a tutorial of how to use Tunnel Bear VPN and create a 2nd Google account and change your country. I did so, and was able to download a few Japanese games no problem... but somehow inexplainably, a few hours later, without me doing any thing at all to my phone or new Google account, my country had changed to the United States. And Google has this weird policy where you can only change your country once every 365 days... I could in theory make about 365 different Google Play Store accounts - but there's a much faster and easier way that allows you to do...
