Vienna Comic Con 2015

Wow! What a weekend! We waited so long for the Vienna Comic Con to finally happen and now it’s already over. I have so much to talk about and so many photos to show, that I decided to divide the whole review into multiple posts. Today I’ll talk about the event as a whole, the next post will be about my cosplay photos from Saturday, the next one after will show cosplay pictures from Sunday and last, but not least I’ll show you our loot from VIECC. If you want to read my preview before the Comic Con took place…

Back on the Road Again

It’s time for Mario Kart again! I’ve been waiting for Mario Kart 8 for ages now, and finally yesterday was the release day. Of course we had to get the Limited Edition with a blue shell figurine XD. Here you can see the box. I couldn’t wait to open it! And here’s the game and the blue shell. I does look a bit intimidating, doesn’t it? I think it’s a really cool item. It matches our Mario figure collection perfectly! The Mario Kart games are on my top list of longest or most played games, together with Final Fantasy XI,…

Adventures in Eorzea

I’m really sorry for the lack of updates as of late. When I wasn’t at work, eating or sleeping I was playing Final Fantasy XIV – a lot. Well, I played it pretty much on any occasion, but I’m not one of those players who just rush through a game and get to max level in one or two weeks. For now our highest jobs are White Mage and Dragoon with level 30, followed by Arcanist and Marauder at level 25. I also spend a lot time on the gathering and crafting classes to get good materials and create my…

One Piece Pirate Warriors 2 Collector’s Edition

When there are so many new games coming out, it’s a sure sign that summer is over. There’s not only Final Fantasy XIV – A Realm Reborn and Tales of Xillia (and others would also add games like Saints Row 4 and Payday 2 to the list) that came out in the last past weeks, but there’s also the second One Piece Pirate Warriors game, which was released last week. We got the Collector’s Edition, which comes with a great figure of Luffy. Here’s our unboxing video: As you can see, this time we were better prepared and checked out…

Tales of Xillia – Milla Maxwell Collector’s Edition

Let’s celebrate, there’s a new JRPG out! Finally also fans from outside Japan are able to buy and play Tales of Xillia (at least if you didn’t get the japanese import version yet), which came out in Japan already two years ago. It was clear right from the beginning that we would buy this game, but when we read that there will be a special collector’s edition of the game with a beautiful Milla figure for preorder at the official Namco Bandai store (later also available on other sites as amazon) we knew we had to get this special limited…

Please be Excited for E3!

OMG OMG OMG! Square Enix announced Final Fantasy XV (formerly known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII) and Kingdom Hearts III for Sony PlayStation!!! I’m so happy and overwhelmed because both are looking soooo cool! [ Source: IGN ] First of all: It looks so great! It seems to be a lot more action-orientated than the main Final Fantasy games before, but as I’m also a big fan of games like Kingdom Hearts, Drakengard and the newer action MMORPGs, it’s alright for me. As long as you have at least some freedom to explore, a lot of cool sidequests and a great…

Family Days

So in mid-May I finally visited my family in Hannover/Germany again for one and a half week. The weather was pretty nice. Not as hot as in Vienna at that time, it really felt like spring with occasional rain, that always stopped pretty fast again. We used a lot of time for gaming. We bought Persona 4 Arena and the new Naruto Shippuuden PS3 game, we played some Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed and a PSN Bomberman (Bomberman never gets old!). We also puzzled all characters through “The Cave“, a PSN download game by the Monkey Island creator. It was…
