Puella Magi Madoka Magica Movies Parts 1 & 2 in Theaters

madoka magica

Tonight we all went to go see Puella Magi Madoka Magica Parts 1 & 2 in theaters in Tempe. The viewing was an encore screening of the movie, the first which was held on Janurary 12th, doing so well that the movie sold out! I couldn’t get to go last time, so I made an effort to go this time around and even saw some cosplayers turn out for the movie.

Watching the series again in movie form was a whole lot of fun. It really is a great story and it was great that it did well enough that it got an encore screening. This show wasn’t sold out, but there were still quite a large amount of people who showed up giving support to Madoka.

Tekken Tag Tournament: Xtreme Swimsuit Edition

Looks like Namco is trying to prove to Tecmo that the characters in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 can look good in bikinis and swimsuits just like Tecmo’s characters in Dead or Alive. Only to take it a step further, it looks like the male cast of Tekken is participating as well. If you pre-order Tekken Tag Tournament 2, then you’ll get a bikini pack that comes with over 100 swimsuits you can use to customize your characters with.

Of course…Tecmo recently released this video showcasing a few of the things available to you if you pre-order Dead or Alive 5…


FFXIII-2 Additional DLC Episodes Due in May

Finally shifting their focus to something more than just additional outfits and looks that you can buy for Serah and Noel, This May, Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be getting even more episodic DLC released, expanding on the story of some of the other characters involved in the main storyline.Up first with an official release date is Snow. He’ll be getting his episode just like Sazh a few months ago, on May 15th, on the same day as the Valfodr Coliseum DLC. The episode is more than likely going to explain how he was traveling through time like Serah and Noel as well as how he managed to receive the mark of a L’Cie again. Sometime after that, will be an episode centering around Lightning’s final battle with Caius Ballad while the players controlled Serah and Noel during their own final battle. While Snow’s episode currently has no title, the Lightning episode is titled “Requiem of the Goddess”

There are still some more clothing DLC planned as well. Later on in the month, you can download a White Mage outfit for Serah and a Black Mage outfit for Noel.

This is still probably the coolest looking DLC outfit though. Mass Effect fans will agree


Altus Holds Cosplay Contest…In America (…also Canada)

A few days ago, in the spirit of Halloween, Atlus started to hold a contest to see who in the US and Canada can dress up as their favorite character from any of their games. The contest is called Atlus-O-Weenie 2011 and is scheduled to go on from October17th to November 11th. People interested in the contest need only to dress up as an Atlus U.S.A/Index Digital Media Inc. publised game, upload a pic of yourself along with filling out the necessary forms and be at least 18 years of age.

There are several catogories where contestants could win in, each from a different game. In other words, there can be winners for dressing up as a character from Catherine, Persona and King of Fighters, as well as a random winner that will be chosen for a prize. In addition, there is also a grand prize chosen by the fans, a $300 Amazon gift card.
