Kamen Rider Den-O – Series Details

News
Looks like some details have surfaced about the upcoming KR Series. First off we have creator credits. The most notable being the return of Yasuko Kobayashi, the woman behind TimeRanger and Kamen Rider Ryuki, so either bow your head in anguish or raise your fists up and rejoice! Here's the breakdown, courtesy of The B'Stard: "Creator: Shotaro Ishinomori Chief writer: Yasuko Kobayashi (chief writer of Ryuki; also Gingaman & Timeranger) Producers: Atsushi Kaji (TV Asahi producer, worked on Kabuto, Hibiki; Shin'ichirou Shirakura (producer of Agito, Ryuki, Faiz, Kabuto and was replacement producer on Hibiki); Naomi Takebe Action director: Takeshi Miyazaki (action director of Ryuki through Kabuto) SFX director: Hiroshi Butsuda (SFX director of pretty much every Toei toku since '90...

Merry Christmas: Kamen Rider Dragon Knight… TRAILER!!!

News
It looks like Christmas came early this year, cuz we got a leaked trailer for the KR Dragon Knight pilot that's being put together by Steve Wang and his band of heroes. Now, make note... this is not an official trailer. You can tell from that lil' time stamp thingie and I'm pretty sure that the sound and music are not the final that'll be used. This is to show investors so that we can finally get a full blown show put out here in the Western countries. It probably won't be online for long once the Powers That Be find out about it, so check it out as soon as you can. From what I've seen, goddamn does this look nice! Definately a far cry from the 90's Masked Rider with a focus on action and epic story telling (no Ferbus! Yay!). This is our first shot to get Kamen Rider back in Americ...

The clock fast ticks down to the zero hour where soon presents will be opened and the coming year will be celebrated. Here are some pretty interesting scans of the up coming Kamen Rider Den-O that you can find both here, here, aaaaand over here as well. Most interesting thing I find in this bunch if a fairly formidable looking monster! While Kamen Rider's always been a favorite of mine, I've yet to see a series that has a badguy worth a damn. Someone as cool as Hurricanger's badass Seven Dark Spears. Last I heard, Black was the last Rider Series to truely have one helluva badguy in the form of the mysterious, Shadowmoon. Check out this baddy for Den-O and let's hope we get a straight up bad motherfucker villian in 2007. I've noticed that Kamen Rider's first throwdown is usually ...
HJU Review – Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops

HJU Review – Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops

Reviews
Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops By: Trevor Monaghan [[Spoilers Follow]] A man extends his hand to shake that of a legendary hero. Instead the hero ignores him and walks out the door. The Hero is Naked Snake recently promoted to the rank of Big Boss, the man is the Director of the CIA. This slight was meant to serve as Metal Gear Solid 3’s way of showing how Big Boss went from national hero to the series primary villain…. It wasn’t enough. For those of you who played through MGS3 you know that Snakes mentor “THE BOSS” sacrificed her life to Snake under orders from the US to prevent an armed conflict between the United States and the Soviet Union, the knowledge that he was used as an assassin in a covert op with out knowing the full details were supposed to ...

The Nintendo Wii… IN JAPAN!!!

4 Color Rebellion is one of my favorite sites and definately influential in the design of this here front page. Thanks to them I got pointed in the direction of such awesome comic books as Scott Pilgrm and found what was once a pretty good podcast. Eventually it went to crap, but one thing that always made it worth it, was Vinnk's "Rebel in Japan" segments, where he recounts his life and times in the land of the rising sun. The podcast is gone for now, but Vinnk still recorded this track talking about the coming of the Nintendo Wii in Japan. Since we're all lovers of that faraway land, I thought you all would wanna have a listen. Click here to check out the article or download the podcast.

This is pretty unusual and an unfortunate far cry from the ninja theme that we'd originally heard of in early rumors. The Rider of 2007 is apparently... train themed. O...kay... well. I didn't like Kabuto's designs much either when I first saw 'em and I thought two forms was a waste of time. Now it's currently my all time favorite tokusatsu. Here's another picture, so... yeah. I guess we'll see how it turns out!
