photobucket issue

Sorry guys. Don’t know how it happened but it seems that photobucket seems to believe that I have used up my months bandwidth (although this has never happened before) in the space of 7 days.

What makes it worse is that the useless site doesn’t give out any stats to show where all this new [...]

Mini Review: Persona 4 Arena

Well, it finally happened. Just when pretty much everyone (including myself) had given up on the game, P4A FINALLY got a UK release!! Also, Microsoft announced their next generation Xbox, called the Xbox One. I can sum that up in one sentence. If I was a white, jock, suburban american male, who loves his [...]

Change we can believe in! Dolls, BANZAI!!!

OK, I’m man enough to admit when I’m wrong and I have no idea how I got the notion that BJD are creepy with their stares which seem to look through you and their “real” hair (I swear, those things grow! Just like in those ghost stories!!) but I hearby renounce my ways and state [...]

Aftermath

I guess I should start with the most obvious. By now, everyone would have heard of the events which occurred over the weekend and I can only hope that readers who have friends and family in Japan have found them to be safe and sound. I also have some friends in Japan and luckily, they [...]

Winter Wonder Festival Preview 2011

Woo! Double post!! Don’t get used to it though. But seeing as Wonderfestival is this weekend and I’m still trying to sort out a shopping list, I thought I would post up a few of the kits which caught my attention. Overall, I have to say that there are quite a few good kits this [...]

Attention! Calling all Valkyria Chronicles Fans!!

Oh how I love this pic!

But it seems that this week is a rather busy one in terms of posts. I have been asked to try and get some more people involved in a small fan project which is related to Valkyria Chronicles. A small group of people have decided to try and [...]

The Calm before the Storm

Not really much of a post this week cos I’m feeling really lazy! No real progress on my kits this weekend either. I spent Saturday at a Capcom event previewing Dead Rising 2 too.

Sadly, it’s not really good enough for me to write a post about. It’s just the same as the first game, [...]

The next Volks Try-GK kit is… YOKO!!!

The volks website is now accepting orders for the next kit in their Try GK line after their wonderful Saber, and it’s Yoko Rittoner (vs antispiral version)!!!

Oh god, that kit looks lovely, but I already have the Kotobukiya Yoko kit from 2007. I really can’t get this one without breaking one of my [...]

The London Cup 2009

For a while now, I’ve been putting excuses up about not having enough time to complete things, esp with regards to my model kits but this time I’m actually going to explain why! You see, a few months ago, I joined a local Kendo club, seeing as I has a taste of it many years [...]

The History of Memes

Came across this page from, of all places, the BBC news site and thought I’d share. It chronicles internet memes from way back when the internet was first invented. Unsurprisingly, not much happened for ages but then it all took off around the late 90s. Most of the usual suspects are there, Goatse, Menthos [...]
