(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!)

It`s always been debated that video games are another way to express creativity and ingenuity. Continually, developers are pushing video games in a direction that we never thought possible. Many doubt that this medium can be used to create true art.

Then comes thatgamecompany (flOw, Flower) and brings with them their latest game, Journey for the PS3. What it brings is an experience unlike any other.

Should you embark on this quest or stay behind and leave it to the more adventureous types? This is my review on Journey.

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

Hanafuda Cards

Hanafuda is a traditional Japanese card game that was conceived when foreign cards were banned in the 1600s. Being very simple and quick to play, and with the added influence of seeing Summer Wars, I decided to pick up a deck for myself.

My First Keitai

My old phone was faithful, but during phone calls, I could barely be heard, and I hardly texted anyone on it (Even though it is technically a texting phone).  So, for my new phone, I decided I wanted a normal, Clam-Shell Phone. Seeing the beautiful designs of the Japanese Keitai Denwa (Mobile Phone), I went on a mission to acquire one. This is the result. I present to you, the Softbank 740SC.

Small Updates

It’s been some time since I’ve posted anything, as school has pretty much taken up all my free time. To those of you who read my blog, I apologize. However, I do have some good news:

– I will be receiving some new loot very soon, and I will be doing an un-boxing of those.

– I am currently working on write-up for a new entry for my Thoughts category. To give you a little hint: It deals with a long-running issue in Anime (Not much of a hint, but I hope it keeps you guessing ^^).

– I am working on a review for some Anime I have seen lately (As few as that may be due to my lack of time ^^;).

– I MAY do an entry of my room to show you all the stuff I have amassed over the years, if that is to any of your interests.

And finally:

-I hope to get a new camera soon. My 6-year old Point-and-Shoot has been faithful, but I am in definite need of an upgrade, which I am sure most of you have noticed. Aiming for a DSLR, but we will see what happens.

That’s it for now. I just wanted to clarify that I am not dead or have abandon my reader(s). Please look forward to my future entries! *bows*

First Post.

Hello! Welcome to Raharu’s Blog.. but you knew that already!

This is where I will post on things I have come across that are either a great interest of mine, or something I would like to share with all of you. This is my first post and I am completely lost on how to work this site ^^;

However, I hope to get this place more organized and be able to bring you something worth while to blog about. I hope you stick around for it!
