A Little of Everything (BWC 2016 Report)

Hey guys, Hime-senpai checking in. October 15 is the first day of Bushiroad World Championship Philippine Qualifiers, with the first day featuring Cardfight!! Vanguard, and the second day featuring Buddyfight and Weiss Schwarz.

Let me just say that it’s been a really really fun event and these major tourneys are events that players would regret to miss. There’s no entrance fee, and you get the best of the best players under one roof. It’s definitely an experience any TCG player should never ever want to miss in his “TCG career”. Even if you’re not fond of these large tourneys, you should try attending even once in your lifetime as a player. Until you’ve been in one of these, you haven’t seen it all. I entered the tournament with my Angel Feather deck, centered around Black Shiver Gavrail, her stride fusion, Black Seraph Gavrail, and the “Rescue” mechanic. Continue reading

Symphonic Rain: A Review

Imagine a situation wherein you don’t have Internet access (let’s say, for at least two weeks, and you don’t have any academic/work-related stuff to do). What are you supposed to do?

You would probably die out of boredom, I guess. Kidding :> Of course you would sleep!

That’s exactly what happened to me. Boredom’s horrible, trust me.

Asterisk War: Phoenix Festa

Hime-senpai has arrived from the main animanga NOHK blog with my first video game post in this sub-blog.

I mentioned two things in my writer profile.

1.) My gaming platform of choice is the Playstation Vita.

2.) I am primarily an anime fan more than an actual gaming fan, hence my preference for the PSV and it’s huge library of JRPGs and tie-in games to niche anime.

Without further ado, let’s start off with a review of one such game that fits both criteria, one that’s recently released here in Asia – Asterisk War: Phoenix Festa, stylized as AW: Phoenix Festa in the actual cover for some reason. I guess game titles run on character limits. Continue reading

Under 20: Just Deserts

Hi there, guys. Alkaeid here with my first post on the gaming blog, and as promised on my about write-up, I’m here with a game review! This series will aim to review games below $20 (which should be a decent budget for the average gamer). Maybe we’ll get the other writers to collab with down the line. Let’s start the very first one off with a dating sim: Just Deserts!

About from Steam page: Just Deserts is a sci-fi action dating sim where you play as a soldier who must protect a city from mysterious alien attack, while at the same time need to capture the heart of your dream girl(s)!

Just Deserts is a Dating Sim/RPG hybrid game developed by Vifth Floor and published by Sekai Project.  It was released the 26th of July, 2016 on Steam, and goes for $9.99.  I actually first heard of it during one of my rare visits to the Steam Greenlight pages, and I eagerly waited for its release in the Steam store after it had been Greenlit!  Coming in with expectations of a good balance between fighting and dating sim-ing, I won’t say I was disappointed, but… Continue reading

JP Rhythm Game Spotlight: SEGA’s MaiMai!

Summer 2014. It’s the weekend. I’m taking a break from school, studies, and whatever the hell is bothering me. Going to the mall with my family for some lunch and some relaxation. I go to my usual place: the game arcade on the top floor of the mall. Everything’s cool, then I see front-loading washing machines.
