1st Flame Poem of an Extella Fate

Released a few days back on Steam immediately after the Nintendo Switch version, Fate/Extella makes a triumphant entrance to the world of PC Gaming by storm. 

While the practice of separate sales of DLC contents still irked a majority of the community, the franchise nevertheless garnered a wealth of positive reactions from fans and newcomers alike to the series.

A Day (Or Two) at a Summer Wonderland

I’ve attended Penang Anime Matsuri 2017 Summer Wonderland last weekend. First and foremost sorry for the lateness in my photo post-processing for the past few days, for those looking forward (And expressed interests in…) to my event photos… I’ve finally managed to upload them all onto my Flickr yesterday. ^_^

It’s an extremely exhausting experience, what with my now slowly decaying physiques and years, I find myself no longer as enthusiastic as earlier years, even though the new site is a double thumbs-up for me.

It’s not easy being a Wizard. XDc

The new site at Spice Arena, a former mini stadium now redecorated for events, is much more comfortable when compared to past PAMs at Dewan Sri Pinang.

The enclosed space allows better air-conditioning (You could actually feel the chill in your bones even if the hall is packed with visitors, unlike past venue’s scorching hotness) as well as a more convention-like appeal ala Anime Festival Asia in Singapore (Co-Organised by the same team behind AFA too if you don’t know www).

Priced at USD 49.90, the game will be on a 10% discount for the first week until the 31st.

Unfortunately, all DLC costumes will be sold separately unlike Switch’s free-for-all. All costumes will be on 20% discount as well.
