Natsume's End of Serenity is a PSN-exclusive classic JRPG

[As originally posted at Destructoid.] The retro JRPG aesthetic is infinitely appealing to me, and Natsume and Kemco hope you'll feel the same way with the upcoming End of Serenity. It's a love l...

Jtor AM 28: Ping Pong, Adventure Time, and undercover Canadians
by Karen Mead

This week, Tim and L.B. reveal the dark, seedy underbelly of Sakura Con -- or they would have, if they were invited to any of the cool parties, but they were too busy waiting on lines for that. Meanwhile, Ben and I share our growing love for the directorial stylings of one Maasaki Yuasa while L.B. and Tim stubbornly resist the allure of The Cult of Ping Pong....while they can.

In perhaps the most important development since the beginning of the podcast, we also reveal everyone's superpowers: I have the ability to turn even the smallest amount of alcohol into demon death juice, Ben can get involved in Free-to-Play stuff without being suckered into buying virtual game crap, L.B. is a psychic doppelganger who can read minds, and Tim can spot a Canadian in disguise at 40 paces. Tim also has the power to watch any anime his wife tells him to watch (even if that anime is Nisekoi), but maybe that should count as his wife's superpower instead? I'm rusty at my superhero canon; it's a good thing I'm not a comics blogger.

Banpresto's Sailor Moon arcade prizes are precious 'Girls Memories'

Another day, another set of Sailor Moon toys, replicas, or all-around awesome merchandise that I want to hoard and keep all to myself. Is there no end? I don't think there is. Banpresto has just launched a new brand of figure...

These Madoka Magica light-up Soul Gems are gorgeous

You know, as much as I enjoyed Madoka Magica, it's one series I haven't purchased any merchandise from. There's such a huge sampling of stuff, too. But I haven't even seen any of the films or the tie-in material, so I guess t...
