Wake Up to Emilia and Rem from Re:Zero stars

Why wake up to a boring alarm clock when you can now wakeup to the voices of (your possible ‘waifu’) Emilia and Rem from the hit series, Re:Zero! The app features over 90 recordings allowing users to customize their morning wakeup greeting. Unfortunately unlike the Asuna app, the images are static but features over 30 character images. 

Currently the app is only available in Japan for Android and iOS for 720 yen.

PAX West 2016 Impressions: Dragon Quest Builders stars

Among the games that I played at PAX West this year, one of the notable ones that I would like to talk about is Dragon Quest Builders from Square Enix. This game caught my eye once I noticed it has elements of crafting and the beloved enemies from the Dragon Quest series. Your character, the Savior, is woken up by a goddess inside a crypt with no memories and is told that humans of this world have lost the ability of creating. A back story follows and it leads her into teaching you the basic controls, how to gather, craft and create.

PAX West 2016 Impression stars

As the premier gaming convention in the Seattle Washington area, Penny Arcade Expo (or PAX) is split into multiple gaming events held in Seattle (West), Boston (East), Melbourne (Aus), and San Antonio (South). We got to experience PAX West for the first time, and I have to say I’m impressed by everyone attending and exhibiting. Everything about the show is all for the passion of gaming. From consoles to PC to tabletop, PAX has it all.

Yona of the Dawn Volume 1 Review stars

Yona is a typical princess living a carefree life of royalty with her doting father, King Il (pronounced like ill), in the kingdom of Kouka - a historical kingdom that seem to be a mix of Korean and Japanese influence. Akatsuki no Yona, or Yona of the Dawn, is written by Mizuho Kusanagi and began in 2009. It is an on-going publication in the bi-monthly magazine, Hana to Yume. It was announced at Comic Con 2015 that Viz Media would be bringing it to North America for English fans.

The King of Fighters XIV (PS4) Review stars

In most respects, PlayStation 4’s The King of Fighters XIV - which is the 14th core King of Fighters game - is simply more King of fighters, but as a fan of previous entries in the series, that’s exactly what I wanted. There’s a lot that in this latest installment that veterans will find familiar along with new changes that will be welcomed. Familiarity is one of The King of Fighters XIV’s greatest strengths, allowing players to jump straight into the action while cutting through formalities that aren’t needed.
