Lately I have been getting a lot of cool stuff. Mostly from my friend as presents, he is living in Japan for a year teaching english (Really greatful that he got me these things). Just thought I might share some of the cool things I've gotten with everyone. Pictures for most will be located at the bottom of the blog post.
Katamari Forever Soundtrack - This is the coolest videogame soundtrack in recent memory. This one was a present from my friend who is living in Japan. Easily the best soundtrack in the Katamari series. I also love the cover and CD art!
Super Street Fighter 4 Art Book - Another present from my friend. There is a lot of cool concept art in this book, and a lot of those new costume Capcom and Ono art teasing are in this book. Really interesting to see some of the designs characters could have been. Some are really crazy too.
Arcade Mania - ANOTHER present from my friend. It is a really good book that tells the history of arcade gaming in Japan. Goes through everything from fighting games to sticker booths. Apparently there is a girl who is so good at UFO Catchers, the companies that make them hired her to make instructional videos to make your UFO catching game skills improve... Japan is crazy. It is wise to not that the book is written by Brian Ashcraft, the Senior Contributing Editor over at Kotaku.
Panasonic RF-60 Stereo Headset - I picked this up at a garage sale my college was having today and for 10 bucks it is the greatest purchase I made in a while. It's an old headset, I'm assuming from time in the 1970s based on the way the girl on the front cover looks. It has a built in FM receiver so I can listen to the radio on the go. I'm surprised these things still work and the sound quality is actually pretty good. Has plugs for Stereo Out and two big ass antennas for picking up the radio signal. I'm sure I am going to get some looks with these things on in public but they just look so cool!
Other Random Anime Tidbits - Just some random stuff like Pokemon Black & White racers, One Piece postcards (Which I might never use), and some anime coasters. Cool novelty stuff.
Those are the cool things I've been getting recently. Envious aren't you! AREN'T YOU!
