I was thinkimg of getting one too but then noticed many of the games I own or want to get aren't compatible with it so decided to just stick with my vita for now. I'm not really sure why the thing is so limited, apparently it wont even play netflix :^)

Both my bags with clothes and most importantly my really expensive camera and more expensive lens were stolen too.

Just preordered these:

Been waiting a helluva long time for them to finally come to bluray, and it's nice to see them both being released in such spectacular manner.
Kwaidan is easily one of the greatest Japanese horror films ever made, and I'll take the Yakuza Papers series over the Godfather series any day.
All of it is costing a pretty penny, but as long as i just save a bit before they release, it should be no problem. Gotta grab the Yakuza Papers one quick anyway, because these Arrow Video releases are always limited editions (usually only 3000 copies), and their prices usually jump pretty soon after release.

That's a damn nice set for Yakuza Papers. Which version of Kwaiden is that, by the way? Is the remake any good? Or should i just stick to the original if I was to watch it? EDIT: Huh, it appears I may be mistaken, there's also a J-horror film with the title "Kaiden" which is a remake of another horror film entirely. So confusing.

Been into reading manga again recently and figured it's taken me long enough to get around to Tsutomu Nihei's stuff. It's all bleak cyberpunk/dystopian future settings with cybernetic enhanced humans, dark buildings and disease ridden worlds; Biomega even has a talking bear with a sniper rifle. Biomega's action is just ridiculous too. Everything about it is ridiculous, but it's fun. Blame is more bleak and weird. Think I'll carry on with Biomega right now since Blame is so expensive to buy now due to the low print run.

This box set is a lot better value than the Blu-ray collection that was released in Japan about 2 years ago. A must-have pick up for me.

Speaking of, anyone else ever see the film Triple Cross (AKA Double Cross in certain regions) also from Kinji Fukasaku? That was a good one. The way the film escalates to the the insane climax at the end was great.

Just bought a Radeon R9 290X GPU to replace my old Nvidia 650ti.

The thing is a beast! One of the biggest graphics cards I've ever seen. Somehow I managed to fit it into my mini ITX build but I can barely get the case's shell back on now lol.

Please excuse the dustiness under my desk and on the top of my case! I can assure you it's been dusted since this picture was taken :P

Lovely card. :) That's what I'd get if I could. Due to finances I'm still kicking around a 7770. :oops: Great that it fits in your case, but do the card's fans have enough space to vent? It appears as though it would be choked by heat.

Thank you :D

Even under load it's been running really cool with the shell off (cooler than my tiny little 650!). They are some really powerful fans. I plan on cutting a hole in the side of the case so that the fans can be exposed whilst protecting the rest of the build from dust.

And yeah it definitely isn't the cheapest of cards but I got a very good deal as I bought it from my brother.
