So yeah... let's watch GACKT play video games: GACKT vs Metalman

Not much has changed. GACKT still sucks at video games. Today he continues his Rockman 2 assault, actually getting to challenge Metalman. We actually get a smile out of the rock legend.

So yeah... let's watch GACKT play video games: River City Ransom

Yup, GACKT is still gaming, but there's a change... The strangest thing is happening... it looks like he might be having a tiny bit of fun! This time he's brought his buddy Takumi in for a game of River City Ransom. Remember I said a TINY bit of fun.

Celebrate July 4th with some US Navy ship girls! photo
Celebrate July 4th with some US Navy ship girls!
by Josh Tolentino

It's AMERICA day today, and you know what's pretty cool and American? The United States Navy! And you know what cool American thing is grossly underrepresented in Kantai Collection, everyone's favorite strategy game  featuring moe-fied World War II-era warships? 

That's right, I'm talking about the United States Navy!

Thankfully, it's not just patriots like myself who realize this injustice. A artist who goes by "November☆" realized that only Japan's kantai was collected in Kantai Collection (plus a cameo by Bismarck) and sought to correct the imbalance by illustrating a few US Navy capital kan-musu ("ship girls") to join the fleet, including the aircraft carriers U.S.S. Yorktown, Enterprise, and Hornet, the battleship U.S.S. Iowa, and even the never-built Montana-class battleship, U.S.S. Louisiana, the last battleship ever ordered by the navy.

Check out some more illustrations in the gallery below, and give an all-American salute to this Chinese artist for helping represent the good ol' U.S. of A in a Japanese videogame!

So yeah... let's watch GACKT play video games: Super Dodgeball

So I wanted to keep you guys tuned into GACKT's daily gaming special, but now I'm not too sure. Today he went at the Famicom classic, Super Dodgeball, and the results couldn't be any more boring. Maybe if he took his sun gla...
