The last weekend of November saw the east of London light up with Japanese culture. From sake to anime, maid cafes to obscure games, you could find anything to happily fulfil any geeky taste at this wonderful event in the Tobacco Docks. The spirit of Christmas was truly alive as you wandered through the stalls. There were workshops creating Japanese art, and shows on the stage featuring Japanese music artists and fashion icons. Here are a few of the stalls we enjoyed the most!

Thundercats Pop! Vinyl

November 28, 2015

“Thunder, thunder, thunder, thundercats, hooooooooooooo” As an 80’s child, you will probably remember this war cry.

Thundercats was one of my favourite cartoons from childhood, and seeing Funko producing these Pops!, gave me such a  nostalgic feeling. As soon as I saw them I just had to buy them all.

I know they made a remake of the cartoon a few years ago, personally I think it’s a sin trying to remake such a classic!

There are also a few Thundercats Movies that weren’t a big success, but there are rumors that they are planing a Movie remake with some big names, very soon. I don’t want to get my hopes up just yet but I expect big things.

For those of you who can’t remember who they are, please watch their intro below. This brings back a lot of good memories for me so, if you start singing along, as I did, this means we belong to the same generation.

Fallout 4 – two weeks in…

November 23, 2015

Last week, I powered through work on Tuesday safe in the knowledge that waiting for me at home were the wastelands of Fallout 4. From the moment the first cut scene opened up, I was in love and eager to start exploring the nuclear landscape of Boston. I have been patrolling since game drop a couple of weeks ago, and have grown to level 26. Some people I know have already completed the game, but I’m still pottering around picking up silver spoons and alarm clocks. Just try and make me do that main quest, I dare you.

While I will endeavour to minimise spoilers, there is a possibility that some will creep through, so please heed this warning if you haven’t started playing yet, or haven’t got too far from Vault 111.

***POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD! PROCEED WITH CAUTION***
