Yup…as if buses weren’t enough, they’ve got planes too. This must be what they use to drop the Poké-bombs all around the world.

Kamehameha!!!! Shokotan plays Dragon Ball Z on Wii

When Shoko Nakagawa isn’t cosplaying, drawing, singing about cats or stuffing their faces into her mouth, she loves playing games or watching anime. So here’s a short video of her playing a game, based on an anime…while wearing a maid outfit.

So that’s Shokotan playing Dragon Ball Z on Wii, Ayumi Hamasaki playing WarioWare on Wii, and Hikaru Utada playing Tetris on the DS. Anyone starting to see a trend here?

Nope. Me neither.

Mission Impossible CharizardPokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl finally make their appearance in North America this Sunday, April 22nd.

Today, Nintendo announced that over 500,000 pre-orders have been taken for the games in the United States alone. So much for Pokemon being ‘just a fad’…

Apparently, the figure is more than double the amount taken for the last main games in the series, FireRed and LeafGreen, which have gone on to sell over 3.4 million units in America alone. Now that’s pretty damn impressive.

Surprise! TMNT doesn’t suck!

Filed under: Movies, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, TMNT — Daniel @ 6:18 pm


When I was a kid, I loved the Turtles. I read the magazines, watched the cartoon, had the action figures, went to see the movies, and was a member of the Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles Fanclub (the name of the TV show was changed here in the UK due to the word Ninja being considered too violent for kids….right. Ok…) I remember getting a sticker book, and a pen with green ink from the fanclub, that seemed to last for years. Good times.

Then, like the Ghostbusters before them, the Turtles slowly disappeared. The third movie was absolute crap (see here and here). The cartoon came to a close…I think we all just kind of grew out of the Heroes in a Half-shell. A new TV series began in 2003, and kicked things off again, but I doubt the Turtles will ever hit the heights they hit back in the late 80’s/early 90’s. (more…)
