Dimension Diver Metroid Samus Aran color resin

October 21st, 2009  |  Published in Bellow $400, Nintendo, Price, VideoGames  | 0

I actually never heard about Dimension Diver until recently. They produced very nice toys, very small but heavy price tags. Not sure if they are actually big manufacturer or new start up, but hey everyone have to start somewhere. As long as they have high quality and faith in their product, they can be giants. I even remembered back then when Hot Toys used to be very small company.

Bayonetta Receives Perfect Score from Famitsu!

October 20th, 2009  |  Published in PS3, VideoGames, Xbox 360  | 0

40/40 is the point awarded to Bayonetta, Hideki Kamiya must be proud of this result. Capcom shame on you letting your ace go, and good on you SEGA to publish this game!! as you might know Hideki Kamiya is the person behind Devil May Cry, Viewtifull Joe and Okami too.. Capcom get a little upset when Okami did not sell really well, and clover studio (which is funded by Capcom ) and pioneered by Mr Kamiya must be let go. Then Hideki with other talented friends open up Platinum games. Now if you wonder back at Capcom, why Devil May Cry 4 is not as good as the previous ones is because there are no more Hideki

Anyway got the Japanese Demo for Xbox 360, surprisingly and genuinely I think this game does not deserve to get a perfect score. Whats wrong with Famitsu… !?

So I’m sore there is much of crazy Otaku who will get this.
