Who knew I could look forward to Sundays?
Feb 08
// Hiroko Yamamura
After a short cliffhanger, The Walking Dead season three will finally resume this Sunday. I was totally snoring last season, and approached the first half of this series with caution. Luckily, the show's morphed into somethin...

The man, the machine
Feb 04
// Hiroko Yamamura
Super Bowl Sunday represents different things for many people. Friends, cold beers, and sports rivalry fill the festive air. However, for one man it could only mean on thing, inhaling pizza. Japan's top eating ...

Final Fantasy Vocal Collection is music to my ears

The songs that make you tear up everytime
Feb 01
// Hiroko Yamamura
I was one of the unfortunately masses who happened to miss my chance to purchase the amazing Final Fantasy Vinyls set. Like many of fans of the series' amazing music, I was totally bummed out. Things aren't all bleak for us v...


The Network Roundup: It's time to dance

Now this is cute!
Jan 28
// Hiroko Yamamura
This was a week full of amazing news, broken hearts, and broken records. Everything pales in comparison to the record set in Japan yesterday, The Synchronized Mascot Dancing record. What yo...

Hi-Chew sugars kids up, and tricks them into hygiene

Need more sugar!
Jan 27
// Hiroko Yamamura
Soft, fruity, chewy. Man, what isn't there to love about Morinaga's delicious candy treat, Hi-Chew? For those of you who haven't had a chance to indulge in a pack of this sugary snack, it's probably best described as somethi...

Our Dream

The Network Roundup: Sorry, no Death Star

The Administration does not blow up planets.
Jan 14
// Hiroko Yamamura
Leave it to the government to stomp on the American dream. The dream of our very own fully operational Death Star. The people of America took their voice to the Obama administration, about the need for a $850,000,00...

The Network Roundup: MAGnificent

No, I'm not there
Jan 04
// Hiroko Yamamura
Ah MAGFest. Every year I make myself a promise to be inside you, partying my brains out to a variety of video game cover bands and chiptune awesomeness. Alas, I'm sitting at home again this year, looking at images from the M...

The Network Roundup: What's your resolution?

Not of your monitor silly!
Jan 02
// Hiroko Yamamura
Just look at those calendars, 2013. Isn't it such a futuristic sounding number? I guess so many sci-fi things I love always had the dates of 2012, making 2013 sound so far away. Along with a snazzy new date stamp comes the an...

The Network Roundup: Looks like we're still here

Sorry Mayans
Dec 21
// Hiroko Yamamura
As I awoke from slumber this morning, a small wave of sadness hit me... The world hadn't turned into some futuristic, alien, zombie apocalypse. Sure, the reality of the end of the world is probably the wor...

The Network Roundup: Keep Trekking

Mmmm Cumberbatch
Dec 10
// Hiroko Yamamura
While Trekkies may be doubting wether the latest sci-fi/action movie from J.J. Abrams reboots truly deserve the Star Trek title. I just can't stop watching the trailer for the upcoming entry, Star Trek Into Darknes...

Did this really happen?
Dec 05
// Hiroko Yamamura
For years people lauded John Travolta and Olivia Newton Johns' music and acting from the classic film, Grease. Those fans often wished for a future collaboration, and a re-spark of the musical magic that embodied the ro...

The Network Roundup: Let's Lotto

What would you do if you won?
Nov 28
// Hiroko Yamamura
If you went to any kind of day job in the States today, your conversations probably included a mention of tonight's interstate Powerball drawing. Clocking in at a sweet $550 million, the little gamble was too m...

What did you get?
Nov 26
// Hiroko Yamamura
The interwebs were full of some pretty sweet deals over the last few days, with all the excitement leading to the magical day known to us as Cyber Monday! Ok, maybe the video game deals weren't as fabulous as the on...

The Network Roundup: Jump

Oct 15

Sometimes the world can still amaze you. Yesterday, Felix Baumgartner went 23 miles up into the sky, and just jumped. The footage of the Red Bull sponsored event broke numerous records, the...

The Network Roundup: Goodbye Ponds

Can't say that I will miss ya
Oct 10
// Hiroko Yamamura
So the first half of the new season of Dr. Who has wrapped. After many hints and and insinuations, the Pond family has finally left the building. I'm afraid to say that I just won't miss them. Sure, Karen Gillian wa...

The Network Roundup: Happy 30th Birthday Macross

Yup, we're getting old.
Oct 05
// Hiroko Yamamura
It's hard to imagine that it was 30 years ago yesterday, The Super Dimension Fortress Macross hit the airwaves in Japan. The first series which consisted of 36 episodes would forever change my life, and h...

I need this toy!
Oct 01
// Hiroko Yamamura
I stand before you defeated today. I spent the entirety of my Monday unsuccessfully attempting to purchase the new Habro edition of Transformers: Masterpiece Optimus Prime. I can't explain how saddening&nb...

The Network Roundup: Monkey business

Look at that face!
Sep 14
// Hiroko Yamamura
I once again have hope for the world. It turns out a new species of monkey has been discovered in the jungle of Congo. What makes me so giddy is not the fact that there is still undiscovered life on this planet, but...

The Network Roundup: Everyone needs a robotic mule

Why didn't they kick this one?
Sep 10
// Hiroko Yamamura
It looks like famous mechanical mule BigDog now has a big brother. The new brainchild of DARPA and Boston Dynamics is on the loose, and this time AlphaDog seems to want to follow you home. Too bad there's no video of kicking...

Mass Effect anime delayed

Won't be making it into your N7 stockings this Christmas
Sep 07
// Hiroko Yamamura
During my Mass Effect 3 experince, Lieutenant James Vega never really caught my attention. It could have been Freddie Prinze Jr's voice acting, the character's backstory, or just his design. Dude just gave my FemShep the cre...

The Network Roundup: Pax-tastic

Sep 03
// Hiroko Yamamura
As our hung-over reporters stumble home from a memorable PAX this year, we take a quick look back at what stood out. Both Destructoid, and Japanator were on hand to cover the action. It seems as though the parties w...

The Network Roundup: Praise Billith

Aug 29
// Hiroko Yamamura
This season's True Blood was quite entertaining to say the least. Many will argue how most of the season didn't make much sense, or how many important issues were glossed over in the last few episodes. Me? I loved i...

Aug 18
// Hiroko Yamamura
I hope you didn't think the Olympics were the only competitions that mattered last week. The top 400 Pokemon Trainers in the world descended onto sunny Hawaii, where the Pokemon Company International hosted the 2012 Pokemon ...

The Network Roundup: The Jaws of love

Aug 13
// Hiroko Yamamura
That uncanny sense of dread that's been hanging over you can only mean one thing, it's Shark Week. I think the only other time I get this excited about salt-water based news, is when Red Lobster kicks off its Endless Shrimp p...

The Network Roundup: Mars!

Aug 06
// Hiroko Yamamura
What else matters than the Curiosity Rover landing on Mars? Things don't get much more exciting than space exploration, and being able to control a Mars rover for even just a moment, would be a dream come true. Did you guys h...
