Robo-Geisha is one crazy movie +

Bit NSFW. Well, I’ve never been one to shy away from crazy Japanese cult movies. As a matter of fact, I didn’t think I would find one that topped Tokyo Gore Police. Silly me. Leave it to the minds that created Machine Girl and Tokyo Gore Police to team up and create this over the […]

A 3 foot horror story +

The bathroom in many homes is a very lonely room. You only visit it when you need something, and not for the pleasant atmosphere the room provides. So is it really hard to believe that the lonely bathrooms around the world holds a deep seated grudge for the humans that use it? I think not. […]

A real Hello Kitty +

If you are reading this website right now, I would find it very hard for you to not know what Hello Kitty is. One could argue that it is one of the most well known Japanese brands right up there with Honda and Sony. This video has nothing to do with Hello Kitty other than […]

Kids vs Zombies +

So, Andrea subliminally tricked me into purchasing Left 4 Dead on Steam, and I have been enjoying playing it for the past few days now. Funnily enough, I have to play Louis everytime I play online because well… my real name is Louis and I’m African-American. You may be wondering what zombies have to do […]

Ichi the Killer Bento +

Gore movies are one of my many favorites from Japan. The last one I watched was Tokyo Gore Police a few months ago. What can I say about that besides it was unbelievably gory… As for the actual story, I think I could of written something better as weekend homework in the 4th grade. But […]

Naoto Fukasawa’s Fruit Juice +

They say that the way food or drinks look plays a major influence on how well we like it. I would have to agree. These are some awesome fruit juice packaging from Industrial designer Naoto Fukasawa. Looking at the strawberry box, it looks as if the packaging may even feel like the specific fruit it […]

Mini Nikon SLR in Japanese candy +

Gilco is one of Japan’s oldest candy companies, and is home to the popular Glico caramel candy as well as the legendary Pocky. For about 80 years now, inside the Glico caramel candy boxes there is a small toy called “Omake of Glico” (Small gift of Glico). It started off as little toys kids would […]

Space Invaders Bank +

Tomy has done it again. If you are old enough to remember space invaders, this functioning bank will trigger your nostalgia reflex. Personally I remember the game, but I’m too young to remember the actual table. We did have a functioning Atari when I was a child though. Ah. Memories.

Well we all have seen the many trailers for the upcoming Super Mario Kart Wii. But I wanted to take this time and let you all reminice on all that was Mario Kart. Here are classic commercials from Nintendo’s hit series.

    Mario is just like the Porsche 911. Both been round for years, and still very much loved. The games are very simple when compared to more complex Xbox360 / PS3 games, but still very appealing,to all generations. The new Mario Kart with the Wii steering wheel is superb. Picks up the movement brilliantly.

    Rock on Mario!

    Haha, one day that will be a prized prized antique even if it doesn’t work! :D I really hope you still have it… maybe you can get it to work one day. I think we still have ours somewhere (unless it was thrown out) but when I next head back I’ll definitely be checking! *fingers crossed*
    I think we only had really simple games- mario. Although now I think about it, we also had this black box that we played on as well (cartridge) which had games like ‘Contra’ and some other penguin-eskimo game. Does it sound familiar?

    When I lived in Cuba, a friend of my mom was throwing out some old junk, and he had a Famicom and about 4 games (like Mahjong). I never got it to really work. Even tried blowing the cartridges like the classic NES! Kept it just to say I own a Famicom though.

    Heh, I never played it before (until a friend brought their N64 around for a weekend) and it’s so much fun! :) Looking forward to the Wii edition of course since I’m a proud owner of a (neglected) Wii. I loved the first ad especially, FAMICOM! :D Haha, no offence to the American peeps who did the first American commercial but the Japanese one is far better imho!

    p/s: I used to own a FAMICOM back in the day. My first console. The Wii is my second.

    I never owned a SNES or N64. I was a Sony kid with the PSX, and Sega Genesis. However Im glad that the Wii has the classic retro games. Brings back old memories.
