Update To My Main Website CK’s Anime & PSP Games

If you have been following my main site, you may have notice the lack of updates last week.  Although you could go to the site without problems last week, I had a lot of problems trying to upload my files.  The web hosting site doesn’t have a proper cpanel tool for file managing.  You need a FTP program for it.  I been using my main web designing tool’s FTP & it doesn’t work.  Used another FTP program that the web hosting site recommended, & it doesn’t work as well.  Checked the FTP info & they are correct.  But yet, I still can’t connect being the server offline or something.

Aside from that problem which seems to happen frequently now & the hosting site being offline overall, I decided to go another web hosting site.  Although I keep saying that I will rework the site, I will be actually removing some parts very soon.  I will remove the Downloads section for a couple of reasons.

One is that most of programs there are too old as newer Windows programs will probably not run them & if they do, they probably won’t run well.  Second is the hosting site will probably treat them as warez which they aren’t since most companies probably have treated them as abandoned programs.  Also, the wallpapers there are too small in size now.  With bigger screens & higher resolution pixels, those wallpapers ain’t worth having as wallpapers now.

The new site URL is here.  You will see a September 29, 2014 update which didn’t appear until today.  Didn’t want to change it since I didn’t feel like it really.  Today’s update will be there too.  But the site will have problems for now due to incorrect URL links.  Trying to get all that corrected.  It will take some time for it to update.  So if something is broken, don’t worry for now.

Although I look at the stats for this blog from time to time, I have been wondering what people like here.  I have done a lot of different categories.  Some of them are big & active while some are small or barely used at all.

PS4 LE Unboxing: Persona 5 Take Your Heart Premium Edition

This is the first PS4 LE Unboxing post.  What a great way to start it with a stylish game.  Was going to do this much sooner, but time wasn’t friendly with me.  Plus, I’m currently on my 2nd playthrough on this game.  Like it says “take your time.”

Today, we are going to unbox Persona 5 Take Your Heart Premium Edition by Atlus.

The back side of the tall box.

Removing the box sleeve, you get this nice box full of artwork.  The front side has the 4 starting characters.

The bottom part of the box.  It shows the remaining 4 characters.  If you didn’t notice, the character’s Personas are shown behind them.

The box opens & close with a magnetic lid.  Opening it, you will first see the Morgana plush & artbook.  To my surprise, the artbook is placed in a plastic bag.  Not sealed though.

Removing the artbook, you will see the remaining items.  You see the CD OST, the game in a Steelbook, & the bag.  Let’s look at each item.

First, the artbook.  The artbook is called Persona 5 Art Book The Aesthetics.  It has a nice amount of artwork with some potential spoilers.  However, it’s not as good as the Japanese official artbook.

The next item is the Morgana plush.  I think it is 6″ tall.  Kind of cute too & seems nicely made based on the stitched eyes.

Just like the game, this plush is designed for ages 17 & up.  Also, it’s flammable.  To my surprise, this plush is made by Sunrise Co, Ltd.  I never knew that they make toys too.

This mini CD is a selection of songs from the game’s OST.  The CD is called Sounds of Rebellion.  I didn’t know that Toshiki Konishi was also composing music for the game.  I thought Shoji Meguro was doing the whole thing.

A list of tracks on this CD sleeve.

Next, the game.  This is the Steelbook edition.  This is the same one as the first press run of the game.

Opening the Steelbook, this is what the front & back looks like.

The inside.

The inside with the game disc removed.

The last item is the Shujin Academy schoolbag. I didn’t open the bag for the sake of space in my room.  If you want details of the bag, Atlus did explain it a bit in their official unboxing video.  But from first glance in person, the bag is not a high quality bag.  It’s a standard kind of bag.  As the guys in Atlus mention, it’s not wise to put a laptop or dedicated items in due to the lack of protection inside.

There you have it.  The unboxing of Persona 5 Take Your Heart Premium Edition.  There isn’t much inside, but it does live up the “Premium” label with the nice goods inside.  Nice packaging & presentation, but not as great as the other LEs I’ve seen from North America like the Call of Duty games or other AAA titles.  But good enough at least.

It’s July 7, 2017 & My Wallpaper Is Finally Here (Taeyeon Vol. 1 – My Voice Deluxe Edition Poster)

It took me over a month & half of my preorder has finally arrived.  It seems that shipments from Chinese areas in Asia have serious delays now.  So what finally came in?

It’s a poster from Girls’ Generation member Taeyeon’s album Vol. 1 – My Voice.  This is from Deluxe Edition which I’m still upset about.  Can’t believe that the record company released it so close to the original release.  Forgetting what version this was, I had to look it up.  This is the Sky version.  For the CD that I’m getting, I don’t know which version it is.  When I preorder it from YesAsia, there was no choice on which version to get.  It is random.  I’m going to find out which it is when it gets here.  Whenever that is.

Who Won E3 2017? Microsoft or Sony?

It’s E3 2017 this week & 2 of the most important press conferences went & gone.  To my surprise, Microsoft did their press conference on Sunday instead of Monday.  A day early instead of a few hours earlier than Sony’s press conference.  Very strange as it would give Sony more time to prepare their press conference to outdo Microsoft’s.  But what I did I think about the conferences?  Let’s start with Microsoft.

I didn’t really paid a lot of attention to the Microsoft press conference, but I did get some of the details.  A large chunk of it was focused on XBox One X (aka Project Scorpio).  The details on the console isn’t anything new from what we heard before.  Overall, it’s the powerful console on the market right now.  Games were shown in 4K to the audience & viewers at home with 4K setups.  There were new games announced, including exclusives.  Also, updates on past announced games last year were shown.  The biggest thing to take out of the conference is the XBox One X’s tech details & price which is US$499 (CDN $599).

On Sony’s side, it’s the same format as last year.  Less time & more games shown non-stop.  Not many new game announcements shown as a large chunk of it is on updates on games announced last year.  Playstation VR had its time with new games shown.  The whole thing was focused on games.

So, which one won?  In my option, it was Microsoft hands down.  The public announcement of XBox One X & the games running on it was definitely the show stopper.  New games were announced & some of them were exclusives.  But the down side on that conference was that some of the games are not true exclusives.  They were console launch exclusive or timed exclusive.  The conference caused a lot of confusion with the word exclusive being thrown away.

Sony’s conference seemed lazy.  It was like they gave up & couldn’t get anything from a large number of 3rd parties.  Thus, Microsoft takes it in my books.

I don’t plan to do my usual Day X of E3 2017 this year.  Mainly because of time for me.  But I will talk about XBox One X & my opinion about it later.

June 2, 2017’s Haul Is a Double A Side Single Which A Double First For Me (Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Harajuku Iyahoi & Yasutaka Nakata Crazy Crazy Feat. Charli XCX & Kyary Pamyu Pamyu)

Although I do know his work from Perfume, this is the first time that I got a CD that has his own solo work & his other artist.  Who am I talking about?  Yasutaka Nakata.

From CDJapan, my order for  Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Harajuku Iyahoi & Yasutaka Nakata Crazy Crazy Feat. Charli XCX & Kyary Pamyu Pamyu has arrived.  Although it has a song from Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, I’m not into this artist.  I mainly brought it for Crazy Crazy.

There should be another haul coming soon this month.  Mainly music again.

May 5, 2017’s Haul Is Something I Nearly Forgot (Perfume 5th Tour 2016 COSMIC EXPLORER LE)

I nearly forgot about this.  Then again, Perfume has been releasing very limited stuff & in short time periods.  So what came in is this.

This is Perfume 5th Tour 2016 COSMIC EXPLORER.  This is the Blu-Ray limited edition which contains an extra disc.  I also got the preorder bonus poster which is pretty much the store promo poster I think.  I haven’t open it really.

Nothing really much to say really.  I think I may get another haul this month though.

It’s May 3, 2017 & It’s Finally Here! (Taeyeon Vol. 1 – My Voice Fine Version & I Got Love Version)

What I thought was a couple of days from my posters arrival turned into a couple of months.  I contacted Yesasia about not receiving the other half of my shipment & they did a reshipment.  Usually it doesn’t take this long for something to arrive from them.  Anyways, if you forgot what it was, here it is.

It’s Taeyeon Vol. 1 – My Voice.  Her first full solo album.  I brought both versions.  The one on the left is the I Got Love version & the right is the Fine version.  I think the difference between the 2 versions is the cover & the attached photobook.  For songs, there is no difference.  However, it seems that the record company wants you to buy both as the spine for both “books” makes it complete.

The words “My Voice” fits nicely together.  Although the words bends over on the other side, it makes the spine of the books to look better.

While I finally got these CDs, there is a deluxe version out now.  While I was waiting, that new version upsets me.  It has 3 additional songs & 1 of the songs is 1 that I want.  Cause of that, I brought that.  But I won’t get it anytime soon since I got it ordered with a preorder item.  So, I should get that next month if things got smoothly.

Atlus Softens Up Persona 5 Gameplay Videos & Streaming Restrictions

A couple of weeks back when Atlus released Persona 5 outside of Japan, they set up some streaming restrictions for the game.  If you don’t remember what they are, it was basically you can’t stream past 7/7 (July 7) & some other parts like character transformations, endings of dungeons, etc.  If you did that, you risk getting a copyright/content strike or account suspension.  The idea is to enjoy the game without being spoiled by the internet.

Today, Atlus decided to loosen up the restrictions a bit due to the large negative response.  The restriction is now set to 11/19 which is the start of the final act in the main story according to Atlus.  Although the date has been extended, the other restrictions in the middle seems to be the same as nothing is mentioned about them.  Also, the PS4 sharing function is still disabled.

With the restriction being near the game end, I don’t think this will do much for some people.  One reason is that some people have completed the game already.  Unless you start the game late, I don’t see some people that completed the game to stream it now.  They know the story & ending, so they may not want to go though it again.  The ones that will stream it will probably be the ones that have yet started.  If they are people like me that haven’t completed the game yet but is currently playing it, they probably won’t stream the middle part of the game.

Another reason is the PS4 sharing still being disabled.  Unless you have an external device to do it, some people may not invest into this idea.

In the end, the restriction lift is pretty useless.  Just enjoy the game.
