GameStop Expo 2016 Impression stars

This year GameStop Expo 2016 was held on September 14th at the Anaheim Convention Center in California. I attended this one-day event to check out some of the games that we didn’t have time to play at E3 or PAX.

GameStop Expo has a different feel than any other gaming convention I’ve attended so far.

Shin Godzilla (Movie) Review stars

From Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (Attack on Titan) comes Shin Godzilla, also known as Godzilla Resurgence here in the West. This is the 29th Godzilla film produced by Toho Co. Ltd and is a modern reboot of the Godzilla franchise that draws many classic elements from the original 1954 film. Already the highest grossing live action film in Japan for 2016, does it continue to build on the success of previous Toho Godzilla movies or is the new origin story a complete reboot like the Nolan Batman trilogy?

Silent Siren, also known as "SaiSai" (taken from the first sound of each of the words) stopped by San Francisco earlier this month, one of their two stops in the States on their S World Tour 2016 . This marks Silent Siren's second time in San Francisco. They were in town only a few months earlier in July for J-Pop Summit (check out our interview coverage here). Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to see them back in July, so it's the first time seeing them for me.
