Otaku no Video!

by Warren

Confession time: I was an anime fan in the early 90s. Back then it was tough to find anime, and watching the stuff was difficult, with 4th generation fansubbed VHS tapes regarded as a major find. Anime was a predominantly male (and Asian) hobby at the time, something that has massively shifted over the last two decades.

Gundam games on the iPhone….are we doomed?

by Warren Frey

Gundam games are like mold. THey spread on practically every platform and aren’t very good for you. While Japanese gamers are intensely loyal to their national franchise, gamers in the West just roll their eyes, as the games (usually) embody every hoary anime cliche imaginable and more importantly just aren’t good games to begin with.

And now Gundam has arrived on the iPhone. Are the games any good?

Check these videos out and judge for yourself. My money would be on “meh” but then again, fighting games are a decent subgenre for these characters.
