Axent-Wear

About two years ago an Indiegogo project came up that Anime fans could get behind. That combine Cat Ears (Nekomimi) with working speakers in them, headphones with LED lights to create the Cat Ear Headphones. The crowdfunding project was asking for around $250.000 but far exceeded their goal, ending with just over $7 million and even more pre-orders. The small company known as Axent Wear had a huge hurdle to cross 20,000+ of people backed their Cat Ear Headphones, finding a place to manufacture them all. Over the course of two years most of the backers were thinking that the company wasn’t following through with their promises till an announcement in late 2014: they had partnered with Brookstone to manufacture their headphones and will be shipping in the 3rd or 4th quarter of 2015. The Axent Cat Ear Headphones were released to the backers on Nov 30th and now can be found at all Brookstone locations for $149.99. It comes in 4 colors, Red, Green, Blue and Purple.

Littlebigkast – Episode 69: Send in the Clowns

As a welcomed substitution to the kast, Glenn the globetrotting chef joins us in Jeff’s place for this episode and proceeds to be censored up one side and down the other. Thank you for not disappointing us, Glenn. Everyone picks apart their decisions in Until Dawn while Robin hugs her knees in the corner and schedules counseling sessions to help her move past her crippling fear of clowns (to which everyone responds by SENDING PICTURES OF CLOWNS you sick, sick people!).

Beginning with a conversation about the mediocrity (maybe?) of the new Mad Max game and the majesty of the Mad Max movie, the modified Littlebigkast picks apart the phenomenon of games transitioning to movies; what makes a successful transition, what genres are more adaptable, and what were some of the high/lowlights of this movement? You curious now? Yes, yes you are.

Tales_Of_Symphonia_Chronicles-1

In 2004 Tales of Symphonia was released to North America (NA) on the Nintendo Gamecube, four years later Tales of Symphonia Dawn of the New World was released for the Nintendo Wii, and now 10 years later the Playstation 3 got a HD re-release of both games on a physical and digital format (2). Since there are two games in one I’ll just discuss one at a time.

Would you go and change time to save your best friend or the love of your life? In Steins; Gate, Okabe Rinarou has to use D-mail to navigate the “world lines” in order to save his friends, but when crossing time you have to be careful because not everyone is the same person you once knew. Steins; Gate’s art was designed by HUKE who also created Black Rock Shooter. 

These Figma’s are quite good not to mention I wasn’t expecting the slippers to come off either figure. Each figure was designed very well that it felt to bring out their character from the anime. There are some things I like to point out on these figures, Makise Kurisu’s hand accessories that make up her arm is very weird and don’t know why it didn’t come as one piece. Okabe’s hair piece is very small and should be handled with care because it’s easy to lose if dropped on carpet or in a library.

danganronpa_logo_white

Have you dreamed of being a great detective like Sherlock Holmes?  There is an allure to collecting clues, interviewing people and connecting the dots in an effort to figure out who was a perpetrator of a crime. NIS America has published a game that will let us play the role of the detective in Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.

In the game, you play Makoto Naegi, a regular student who was randomly drawn and invited to attend Hope’s Peak Academy. The school is renowned for being home to Japan’s “ultimate” students; students are enrolled by invitation only. On the first day of school Makoto and 14 of his classmates find themselves cut off from the outside world by an evil looking robot bear named Monokuma. The only way out of the school is for a student to kill a fellow classmate without anyone finding out they did it. Can the students figure out who is the person behind Monokuma and can they find a way out of the school without murdering each other?

The Lego Movie: Everything is Awesome!

LegoMovieLogo

I have waited for a movie about them for quite some time. There have been brickfilms and Lego super hero movies, but this is the first proper Lego movie. Many of us grew up playing with Legos (and some of us still do), so it’s about time they made a movie about time they made a movie about our favorite brick-building toy!

Real Acton Heroes is a doll manufacture of popular shows from Star Wars to Legend of Zelda (LInk) but don’t get these mixed up with the dolls hanging in your grandmas house. This Saber comes from Fate/Zero that came with a bonus summoning circle for first release buyers. What drove me to like this Saber she comes with more than one face pallet, which isn’t very common for Real Action Heroes.

The Real Action Heroes dolls are more like big action figures since they have ball joints and double jointed elbows that allow them for more of an array of poses. What makes these dolls different is under the skin is a frame or the skeleton for the back, shoulders, hips and head to move more freely. (Read more…)
