Viz launches digital manga library on Apple iBooks photo
Viz launches digital manga library on Apple iBooks
by Tim Sheehy

Huge news for digital manga fans -- Viz Media have made their entire digital catalog of graphic novels available via Apple iBooks, with 1,600 volumes of manga spread across 130 titles. That's a LOT of manga to choose from. Better yet, thanks to Apple's cloud technology, iBooks will let you share your manga and bookmarks across each of your favorite Apple devices on the go, such as your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Keeping up with your favorite Viz manga has never been easier. 

To top it all off, Viz plans on keeping your favorite on-going series like Bleach, Naruto and One Piece up to date with the latest installments, but will also be using the service to debut new ones as well, so there's plenty of more to come. Finally, it's important to note that iBooks will allow you to preview each volume of manga before spending your hard earned cash, so you know what you're getting into. I don't know about you guys, but I'm loving the digital revolution so far. Any of you planning on scoping this out?

Dragon Quest Monsters is coming to smartphones.

Now, we know that Nintendo will not be putting Pokémon on mobile devices anytime soon. (Good for them, I say. Let's not pick a fight about this.) However, Square-Enix is putting their Pokémon-clone-ish series, D...

Awaken your old school side with the iPhone's new handset

Review: Final Fantasy: All the Bravest
by Chris Walden

Square Enix, what are you doing? 

There have certainly been some interesting additions to the Final Fantasy universe of late, and after initially breaking the hearts of 3DS owners seeking out a localised Bravely Default, we wound up with this gem of a game. Except, when you dig under the surface of said gem, you realise it was just a boring old rock after all.

The trailer for the game is certainly intriguing, to the point where I was waiting around the app store for it to finally appear. I have a good two hour commute either side of my day job, so why not try out something that could finally fill the void left by the awesome 10,000,000? As the only chump to cough up the money, I'll be your guide. Onwards!
