March was a strange month. I was desperately waiting for spring each day, and while there were some nicer days, it still felt like winter most of the time. It was cold and snowing or raining (on warmer days) and every time I looked at photos from the last year, I wondered what's wrong, like are we trapped in a time hole or in 'Game of Thrones' or something like that? Fortunately, the last week was waaaaay better and it finally started to feel like spring. No winter temperatures anymore and the first blossoms started to bloom ^.^! Since I haven't posted anything...

Yesterday we visited the Game City - the biggest gaming event here in Austria. It always takes place once a year in the city hall of Vienna, and the best thing is, the admission is free ^_^. You can play new games by almost all the big game developers here, like Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft and much more just to name a few. For us people here in Austria the Game City is one of the first possibility to try all the new games after they were shown at E3 and/or Gamescom and I'm really happy that we get that...

  Yes, it's already one year. Or almost one and a half year since I wrote my last post here. Unbelievable, isn't it? Facebook would also occasionally tell me how many days went by since the last time I posted something, making me feel even more guilty >.<. Last time I checked it has already been 539 days o_O...

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 as...

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, Borderlands 2 and...

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 own armor....

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: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_Ei38er5Ug As you can see, this time we were better prepared and checked out and opened...

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 edition. We...
