14 Aug

taiwan nintendo 3ds doraemon limited editionWe’re used to incredible super cool (and rare) limited edition consoles come from Japan, but sometimes things are different. This is the case of the above Limited Edition Doraemon Nintendo 3DS that is going to be “released” in Taiwan only.

Actually, is not even going to be released. In fact, Nintendo is localising the game Doraemon: Nobita’s Number Adventure in Taiwan, and to mark the game release, is also holding some sort of contest, in which the prizes are five of these wonderful handhelds.

So yes, this is going to be quite a rare console…prepare your wallets collectors.

You will love this OutRun Arcade Cabinet made of LEGO

We all know what a great game is the original OutRun (and possibly even greater is the sequel), but someone thinks it is really special. So special to deserve a LEGO scale model of its original Deluxe Arcade Cabinet!

A blogger called TAGGSTA, that runs an OutRun related blog, decided to create possibly the most beautiful mini arcade cabinet ever, and made out of LEGO bricks! Ah…and completely working!

Taggsta was inspired by a previous OutRun deluxe LEGO creation he found on the net; then he decided to create his own, but then add the real game into it (seems legit!). This little beauty was done using an iPhone with iCade mobile via Bluetooth.

Well, the result is amazing! Check out the video uploaded by the creator!

We’ll definitely buy of those if SEGA and LEGO would collaborate to make it real and mass produced!

A very cool t-shirt and official apologies from Capcom after cancelling the Blood Swimming Pool event

31 May

In the beginning we were utterly excited for the Blood Swimming Pool Event organized by Capcom to celebrate, with few lucky people, the launch of Resident Evil Revelations on home consoles.

Then, a few days later, we got a bit of disappointment by the cancelling of the event itself due to the tragic happenings of Woolwich, even because we achieved to get some tickets to the event.

But you know, Capcom is good, and the PR team decided to send to all the ticket-holders some free stuff, trying to beg our forgiveness. Today we got the parcel in our mail box, here’s what was inside.

Yep, it’s not super cool merchandise, but we still appreciate the apologies. This is how you behave if you want to be one of the top rated software houses in the world (no EA, you’re not included in the list). But that’s not all, the main gift is shown below.

If you were expecting a sequel for Okami, we got bad news

13 May

okami merchandise

Last month, from the official Okami Twitter account, Capcom said they got some upcoming big news about the series. All the teasing was made in occasion of the Japanese Golden Week which is a period of multiple consecutive holidays in Japan. Here’s the tweet:

Yes, we know that you probably can’t speak Japanese, so here’s a translation:

“Hello, this is Okami news. Sorry if I’ve been kind of out of touch lately, but I have the feeling we’ll be able to drop a fresh announcement like WHAM! around the beginning of Golden Week, so please look forward to it. Right now we’re on track with preparations.”

Obviously everyone got super excited, expecting some big announcement about, let’s say, Okami 2.

No way…today Capcom announced some Okami merchandise, and just for the Japanese market.

This is the worst way to start a new week.
