Final Fantasy XIII and Versus XIII Extended Trailers

December 15, 2007

These are some extended trailers from a DVD that was included with a Final Fantasy Cloud book in Japan. Most of the footage has been seen already, but there is also some new stuff in there The quality isn’t the best since it’s on Youtube, but it’s the first time some of this footage has been seen and I couldn’t find any better quality videos yet, but I will post better quality videos if I can find the. For now just enjoy watching some new footage.

beatmania IIDX 15 DJ Troopers Official Site

October 18, 2007

As the title of the post says, the official site for IIDX 15 is up, but as of right now there is nothing on the site except for a picture that says that the game will be released in 2007. The picture is pretty cool though so you should check out the site just for that, so you can kind of see the theme of IIDX 15.

Bon Odori 2007

August 4, 2007

As promised, here are the Bon Odori videos, once again I apologize for the crappy quality, but it was recorded on my cell phone.

Natsu Matsuri

August 4, 2007

So today I went to Mitsuwa Marketplace in Arlington Heights, IL for their annual Natsu-Matsuri which is a traditional Japanese summer festival. When I got there it had already started and there was a taiko group on stage and to my surprise my sensei from when I played taiko was up there, so I thought that was pretty cool. The performance was really good and it was probably the highlight of the festival for me (besides the food). Sorry I didn’t get any pictures or video of the taiko performance since all I had was my crappy cell phone and I was too far back to get even a decent shot, so hopefully I’ll be getting a real camera soon. Anyway, on to the best part of the festival… the food. I took some pictures of my lunch/dinner which I ate in a span of about an hour.

After I was done eating it was time for the Bon Odori, which I of course did not participate in because I can’t dance at all, but I did take some pictures and some videos that will be up a little later because they are still processing on Youtube. Ince again, sorry for the crappy quality, but I did the best I could with my cell phone.

I get my hands on a Mega Mac

February 19, 2007

Not really. Well I kind of did… let’s just say I made my own. After I heard about the Mega Mac coming out in Japan I began to wonder why it hadn’t come out here. (probably because Americans are already too fat) So I wouldn’t be satisfied until I had a Mega Mac to call my own. Hit the jump to see pictures of the beast of a burger that will probably end up giving me a heart attack because it contained a lot more calories than I should have consumed in one day.
