Review: Tokyo Mirage Sessions #Fire Emblem (J-Pop Overkill for Wii U)

It is funny how almost every Westerner reacts with determined rejection at Japanese stuff. I am pretty sure it has something to do with cultural differences but when it gets too noisy and colorful, many people turn around in disgust.
Luckily, I was born without such a reflex and this puts me in the position to actually enjoy a game like this that revels in the Japanese culture. And trust me, you are missing out on something really good here.

Review: The incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Final Cut

Neocore Games, the developer behind this game, is such a generous company. Everyone who owns parts of the original trilogy gets the Final Cut at a reduced price. As a proud owner of all three games (that´s how many belong in a trilogy) I got it for free. It is hard to say no to this temptation so I travelled back to the inky lands of Borgova.

Photographing Final Fantasy 14 #1: Cooking Time in Limsa Lominsa

Finally I was able to make the move from my unworthy laptop to something you could call a gaming PC. Still not the best one but I prefer it to the previous "all minimum" settings. I can barely recognize the areas I already visited. Now that´s what I call a Realm Reborn!
