Japanese teens, um, rap about Miitomo

This is...something. Non-English rap has always rung weird to me. It's like that hit Italian song that's meant to sound like hit American music, but the singer is just stringing together nonsense sounds. There's something uncanny about it....   read

Square Enix is making another neat mobile game called Dramatic RPG Kamitsuri

Square Enix has been branching out in the mobile arena for quite a while now. While I can't say that I like their strategy of re-releasing ports of old games for $15 to $20, I do enjoy their completely original works at a lower pricepoint. ...   read

Lay Lady Layton; Or, first they came for the Ghostbusters and I said nothing

First they made the Ghostbusters into women and the problem is that they weren't, at first. And you laughed. Oh how you laughed (perhaps at the film itself, I don't know, I'm too poor to afford movie theatres). But this is what we're talki...   read
