Anime Expo 2012 (+ Loot)

(The Return!) Journey (PS3) Review

(Hey guys! Sorry it`s been so long since I`ve posted! I`ve been very busy finishing up school and, now that I`m done, I can finally start writing entries again. I don`t normally write reviews on video games, but I just had to when I played this one. I hope you guys like it!  More Japanese Pop Culture stuff is on the way!)

(This review will, as always, be as spoiler-free as possible. Pictures are NOT mine.)
