The-O Cast: Aid Japan stars

Hello, O-Casters, thank you for checking out the latest edition of our little podcast. Today David Ben and I talk about the Japan earthquake and tsunami, how it affects the Japanese entertainment industry at large, and how you can help. As of this posting, the quake is roughly three or four weeks gone bye, but there are still rippling concerns and the yearning to help out a nation which produces many of our beloved comics, cartoons, video games, and music. Check out the links below to help you get started: 

MSNBC: General information about helping.

Gizmodo: News about which donations actually reach Japan.

Philanthropy: List of charities to help Japan.

Muramasa: The Demon Blade Review stars

While the Wii may not be the best console for hardcore gamers, it does occasionally have a few surprises here and there. Vanillaware's Muramasa: The Demon Blade is one such surprise. Muramasa is one of the most visually appealing and artistic games and a perfect example of art in entertainment. I had to dust off my Wii just for this game, which is a testament to the lack of hardcore games on the system. Will Muramasa be enough to make the Wii worthwhile for hardcore gamers?
