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...

3 Important Tips to Record High Quality Gameplay Videos

3 Important Tips to Record High Quality Gameplay VideosRecording gameplay videos has become much easier nowadays with many different tools making it possible. However the quality of the gameplay videos that you’re able to record can differ greatly, with some looking smooth and crisp while others look blurry and stutter a lot. To start recording high quality gameplay videos, there are a few tips in particular that you should try to use: Set the frame rate to high Gameplay videos tend to have a lot of movement, which is why recording at high frame rates can improve their quality dramatically.

Shin Na Zuki IOS JRPG

I began playing Shin Na Zuki, a free mobile JRPG featuring summoning mechanics in a beautiful fantasy anime setting. What I like about the game: Full voice acting and beautiful music Cute characters Pretty graphics Summoning Costumes And most of all a really interesting story that feels like it could even be straight out of a console JRPG. What I dislike about this game: Not enough characters to collect for a summoning type game Gameplay especially in combat is boring Crafting is also boring/mindless Stupid people in the chat rooms. So bad I disabled the comments. Couple of small typos/translation errors like using the word buy instead of but, etc Also dunno what's up with the seemingly excessive swear words in the dialogue lol. Now let's look at the review.... Title: Shin...

Review Get Fit with Walk it Out Konami Wii Game

I recently began revamping my lifestyle to try to be healthier. To that end, as part of this healthier lifestyle, I began to play some of my old wii games that encourage you to get up off the couch and get active while playing the games. My favorite “weight loss” game has always been Konami’s “Walk it Out” for the original Wii. Yes, Wii U can play wii games in case you’re wondering. However, the switch cannot. It is worth mentioning that while Wii games can be beneficial to help motivate you to want to lose weight, they are probably not as effective or strenuous as other forms of exercise. I make no claims that playing these games will help you lose a significant amount of weight, but if you’re like me (and millions of other Americans) who absolutely hate exercising to the point where y...

My Love Live School Idol Festival Kotori Minami Snowbird Cosplay Costume

Note: This costume was designed for me by Kathy's Creations in Greenville PA. This is the 2nd cosplay costume that Kathy has created for me. About 2 years ago I also commissioned her for my Lunar Eternal Blue Lucia cosplay costume. I have a bad habit of not taking wig caps with me to my fittings and/or losing wig caps lol. I will buy wig cap before the anime convention next month. These pics aren't great, because of no wig cap, and I also wasn't wearing any makeup, not even lip gloss, lol. But of course I was so excited that I couldn't help taking like a million (OK about 40 lol) pictures in my costume. As I was trying it on (and taking copious amounts of pictures in the fitting room lol) Kathy was putting the finishing details on the costume such as the ribbons on the crown a

You can do everything you can think of because most of these activities are free. How LoL Became so Popular in the Esports Gaming World? The answer is simple. Riot, the game developer, released a MOBA-style game that is free to play a couple of years ago. It wasn’t something new, but the quality of the game and the complexity that it offered combined with the free to play feature made it popular around the world.

Video Games by the Numbers

  Like many of my readers, I have been playing games for over 3 decades now. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of hours spent playing games like Super Mario Kart and Donkey Kong Country on my SNES with my friends, or time spent immersing in the stories of RPG classics back in the 16 and 32 bit era such as Lunar on the Sega CD or Zelda on the SNES and N64. Video games have a long history and continue to entertain new generations of kids who are growing up gaming, just like they did back in the 80s and 90s. To celebrate video games, the team at The Monitor Monitor has put together this infographic of consoles, the number of games produced for each console, and sales numbers for the top selling games on each console. Please note that the graphic is sorted by manufactu

5 Best Anime Games of 2016

5 Best Anime Games of 2016 Continuing the long standing tradition of converting shows and comics into video games (or vice versa), 2016 has delivered us a slew of very decent games. Compared to their predecessors, these games have come a long way from the old days when Bandai meant a relatively short and generic gameplay experience. But enough stalling; you came here for a list of great games, and here it is! Just be sure you’ve got the right console to play on. Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 If you’re into fighting games and follow the Naruto universe, this one is definitely for you.
