Japanator Eats: Taste Japan video unboxing part I

Japan News - Wed, 11/26/2014 - 10:00

There's few things that I love more than anime and video games. One of them is unfortunately my unhealthy obsession with chowing down on snacks, particularly Japanese snacks! I live in Chicago right now, and actually have a lot of access to sweet and savory items from back home quite easily, but I know for some, the tastes of the east are not as easily aquired.

Here's where services like Taste Japan come into play. In the UK you can pay a monthly subscription fee of £15, and they will deliver you an exciting box of treats to your doorstep. The fine people of Taste Japan sent us a box for free to review, and of course I did not refuse an opportunity to stuff my fat face. 

In this first video we take a look at the contents of the shipment, in the follow up I'll be chowing down.

Journey through Colonial America in Americana Dawn

Japan News - Mon, 11/24/2014 - 17:00

There's something amazing about seeing two great things come together to form a nice package. In this case, Max Lam and her team, Bit Bonton, have opened a Kickstarter for Americana Dawn, a JRPG-influenced game that lets the players experience America's history during the 18th century. Since the title'll take place during two centuries, players will get to witness the events past the 1700s as well. However, Americana Dawn events are a new take on America's colonial era, as the game's main character is a water spirit named Foster. During his quest, you'll get to witness various events like the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. In other words, there's a good chance that we could team up with George Washington at one point in the adventure.
