I’m incredibly happy to announce that I will be joining the Square Enix family at Eidos Montreal, as part of the Shinra Technologies team. This whole thing I started back in January, with a plan to leave Japan, move back to North America, and find work in the game industry has actually worked out, and I’m […]
I remember the days when fall was when you’d get excited for new TV seasons, and now, for me, it’s always this time of the year, as I get all of my favorite shows in one go: Mad Men, Louie, and Game of Thrones – and this year I got the fantastic Daredevil as well. […]
Louie, Louie, Louie, Louiiiiiiiie… Oh man, not only is Louie back, but this first episode of the new season was so damn Louie, especially the “sex scene.” Good to have you back, Louis.
Another iOS game I’ve been really enjoying of late is actually similar to Donsol. Card Crawl is also a dungeon crawler that you play with a deck of cards, with a lot of the interactions similar to what you do in Donsol, but with enough differences (extra items, more about the final score) to make […]
This is the latest iOS game from Aliceffekt – although a collaboration this time, with John Eternal (the result of something they worked on during a recent train game jam) – and it’s fun as hell. It’s a dungeon crawler but played with regular playing cards that represent creatures/enemies, potions, and shields. There’s a simplicity […]
I’ve been hearing this series get mentioned by a few friends who enjoy anime, and so was curious to check it out, even though on the surface it didn’t look like the kind of thing that I’d really be into – the “suit” the heroin wears when using her powers is absolutely cringe-worthy. But since I […]
This documentary about Ghibli is currently on Netflix, and so don’t miss out. Really fantastic look at the inner workings of the studio, in a very natural and personal way, that tracks them as they were working on the latest two film releases. Enjoyed this immensely.
I had heard mention of this series before, and it sounded like something I’d like, but just never got around to checking it out. I finally got around to it – I’ve watched the first few episodes of season 1 – and now I see what all the fuss is about. This is indeed a […]
So here we are, the final batch of episodes of what has been my favorite TV series in recent years (my all-time favorite series is still Twin Peaks). This first episode was quite dark and weird, to a point of nihilism. Looks like Don is still going to go through the ringer for a while […]
I don’t usually mention here when I re-watch Bond films, because I do it all the time, but on my recent flight from Japan to Canada I only watched one movie, and it was The Spy Who Loved Me – don’t know why, but they had it as part of the selection in the flight […]
