Welcome To N.H.K. (Anime)

Welcome To N.H.K. (also known as NHK Ni Youkoso) is the story of Tatsuhiro Sato, who leads the life of a hikkikomori, a socially withdrawn individual who lacks the desire to contribute socially to the workforce in Japan. Being a NEET, he gets stuck inside his home for months and lives off of his parents' monthly allowance. What I really like about this show is how realistic it is in terms of life and imagination. Sato, being a NEET claims it is the evil N.H.K. who made him what he is and is forcing him to live his life like that. Sato frequently has trouble interacting with people and barely goes out of his home which looks like a flea market when soon enough a girl named Misaki drops by on an errand. Soon enough she starts strolling into his life, trying to help him recover from the darkness , self pity, low self esteem and isolation-like qualities within him That's the gist of the show. What really spices things up is Sato's bouts of motivation and fear when he meets his old college junior friend Yamazaki and embarks on a game design project. Just when things feel like they're progressing smoothly, he relapses and backtracks on his own gains. It's not a drama or comedy show. It's plain hardcore reality. Hikkikomoris do exist you know. In fact, hikkikomoris become who they are when life hits them hard. They don't get out of their room, stay inside playing games all day and whiling away their life and time. The depressing part is they feel sad. Lost souls who don't know what they are living for. This is one of those shows that leave an impact on you for life. Every episode has a purpose, every action in it has. You will laugh, cry, feel the pain and guilt and  even relate to the varying degrees of frustration a hikkimori faces as soon as you watch this. Prepare to be teary-eyed.   This is what this show brings the  best out of. No superheroes, no superpowers, no mind games, no shonen stuff. Plain old school reality at its best - another cornerstone of life. Where the art is concerned, the animation is clean and the soundtracks are beautiful. Simply beautiful. If there's one  point I'd like to make - if you ever encounter hikkimoris, don't make fun of them. Just watch this show and maybe, just maybe, it will change your perspective. It teaches empathy. Definitely one of my favorite shows. Did that pique your interest? Then give it a watch, I'm sure you'll love it. :) nhk-ni_-youkoso-full_-812154-750x290

MegaMan Powered Up! (Game Review) [PSP]

156011-mega_man_-_powered_up_usa-2 Some games are a bunch of full throttle RPGs, while some are FPS or Racing and then there’s MegaMan Powered Up!  – a perfect example of an old school classic revamped completely for the sake of its fans and gamers on to the PlayStation Portable (PSP). MegaMan Powered Up!  - is filled with gorgeous graphics and with tons of features, which one would have never expected of an old school classic game. And not just that; the graphics complement the gameplay too, which makes it a truckload of fun! gfs_71511_2_2 If one were to ask, just to fill in the void of curiosity, Capcom, its developers, indeed, didn’t make a lazy move remaking the Mega Man series and compiling it into the MegaMan Powered Up!   game as we know. In fact, unlike some games which can be devilish remakes stocked with hideous controls and features, Mega Man breezes through players across lush environments and sparkly cel-shaded battles, all whilst maintaining the vast expanse of 2D platform gaming. What’s Mega Man about? You play the role of a kid-sized robot whose task is to defeat other robots that are deemed to be bad, due to them being reprogrammed by the evil genius, Dr. Wily. Your goal is to soar through tons of various themed environments and beat them on their own ground at their own game. Once defeated, each robot or droid offers a unique power up as a bonus which you can equip, thus gaining their abilities. . The original 8 bit-game allowed players to fight around 6 bosses but this remake features an additional two – Oil Man and Time Man. Oil Man’s battleground is packed with fire spewing bots and a lot of slippery environments whereas Time Man’s battleground is docked with explosives and time stopping pendulums, which makes it a treat for a play and a feast for the eyes.   Best of all – everything looks pretty cute. [gallery ids="408,409" type="slideshow"] Where gameplay is concerned, players can play either in the old school classic mode where it’s just you and a bunch of other robots with special abilities followed by Dr. Wily at the top of the list, or the newly added Story Mode, where you can play through as Mega Man followed by a mesmerizing, charming story. 2   What’s even better – Just like the old school game, once you defeat your robot counterparts, you acquire their abilities, just like in the old school game! What makes it even better is the fact that you can play the Story Mode as the other robots, which means Mega Man becomes your enemy.   The layout and the battle gameplay is the same as the original classic but it’s much more fluid in terms of gaming mechanics and a lot sharper. The music is basically tunes which are original remixes of the 8-bit soundtracks that blend in well with the game’s theme and complement the characters’ well done voicing. A massive, fun-filled experience with various difficulty settings jam packs it with a bucket load of awesomeness. The level editor, various checkpoints in the game, slick menus, lack of bugs and good portability well rounds the game and makes it live up to its name as a remake. 3 The final verdict – MegaMan Powered Up!   is truly a fun, well-refined game filled with gorgeous graphics and a mesmerizing story, followed by fluid gameplay mechanics. A perfect example of a good remake of one of the most famous 8-bit classics in the realm of NES gaming remakes.
