Available Now (expect in America)
Okay, before I begin. I just beat Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker clearing both the original game's story as well as the new campaign, so expect that review sometime in the future. But because of that I am going to start playing another 3DS game, Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven and even before I start playing the game I already found two things I never thought I'd see. The first is that the game comes with an reverse-able "Inside" cover, which means when you open the game case up, you'll see the super-deformed models of the main characters inside the holes of the case so that they can cut down on the plastic. The second is something I thought I'd never see again: An ACTUAL physical Instruction Booklet complete with story and character introductions and illustrations. I thought we had done away with these in favor of digital instructions on the game cart. I'm sorry, but I can't help but feel nostalgic flipping through an Instruction Booklet with full colored artwork and screen shots from the game. It's just makes me feel giddy. Anyway, on to what really matters: some weird articles that floated up this week where Nintendo of America finally admits that the New Nintendo 3DS (the non-XL model that is) actually does exist. What does this mean for the release of the smaller customizable system? Lets find out.

Game Review: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

2D Platformer; Wii U; Nintendo/Retro Studios; 2014
Sorry once again for leaving you with nothing last week. I got lazy last Sunday and then came E3 and I was thinking of writing my thoughts about it, but then Nintendo didn't announce the New Nintendo 3DS and all of my interest in E3 just vanished, consuming my soul with an empty void of disappointment that Nintendo of America STILL doesn't want to give it's consumers one of the most requested products of the year. Seriously, it's been over 4 months since the New 3DS XL was released, and Nintendo of America STILL hasn't address the fact that there is a smaller version of the system available literally EVERYWHERE ELSE IN THE WORLD! And Nintendo of America STILL hasn't responded to any of my e-mails about for over a month now. Anyway, I need to stop talking about this before I get way too pissed to for the review. I'm talking about Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze today. A game I got off of Club Nintendo for free.

CRES's Thoughts On: Monster Musume Anime

Sorry about my absence last week. It wasn't because I didn't have anything to talk about, but more like I just got incredibly lazy and wanted to just play the video games I got for my Birthday because the weekend is really the only time I have to play a decent amount of games. Anyway, it's now time to talk about something that I have been meaning to relay my thoughts on for a long time. The reason why I haven't talked about it at all was because 1) It didn't really fit the scope of this blog as it was a manga and not a video game or anime (well, not yet), and 2) Talking about this particular item may convey the impression that I am just some weird pervert that gets erections at moments that no normal human should. To address the former, the recent news I'm about to talk about gives a degree of precedence that fits well within the scope of this blog. As for the latter, I already gave Senran Kagura a glowing recommendation, so my reputation as a creepy pervert has probably already been established. Anyway, as I'm sure you can tell from the title, this is going to be about Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou (Translated: Everyday life with Monster Girls), but first a little backstory as I think it's very VERY interesting.
