Song of Saya, regarded by some as one of the most disturbing visual novels ever written, and by others as one of the best, was officially published in English by JAST USA in 2013, 10 years after the game’s original release in Japan. The writer, Urobuchi Gen, is now most famous in the west for the highly regarded anime Fate/Zero and Madoka Magica. Like most of Urobuchi’s works the game touches on some very concerning themes, however Song of Saya may be the hardest piece of work from Urobuchi to stomach. The game deals with themes such as murder and rape, and being an adult visual novel is not shy about depicting sex so if you aren’t comfortable with these themes, this game and article are not for you. This article will touch on those but focus on the use of sex in particularl which may make many people feel uncomfortable, please take this as warning.

As an invitee to Nintendo’s early review program for Disney Magical World, I’ve been spending plenty of time with the upcoming 3DS game. I’m working on a full review to post in time for its April 11 release, but I wanted to alert you to the fact that this game often described as “Animal Crossing meets Disney” is actually a little more gay-friendly than AC!

This Garrus Vakarian Body Pillow May Be the Cruelest April Fools Prank of All

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: We love Garrus Vakarian. I’m still very upset that while Mass Effect 3 went and included male same-sex relationship options for its last go around, everybody’s favorite Turian calibrator was not one of those options. There’s just something about that voice and his cool, collected demeanor that can’t be denied. I don’t even care if he doesn’t have the kind of anatomy I’m used to, as so much fan-porn would erroneously suggest.

Which is why when the BioWare store offered up this Garrus Vakarian body pillow I immediately reached for my….wallet. Of course had I bothered to check a calendar I would have known better than to get my hopes up; it is April Fools Day.

And now I go cry.

Maybe if we’re all really nice to BioWare (and stop complaining about the way ME3 ended) they’ll thrown us this bone…er, cloaca?

Nintendo loves to make special edition handhelds as special treats for their dedicated fans. There’s the Pikachu one, the Animal Crossing one, the Pokemon XY ones, and the Luigi one. Oh and that Zelda one. There’s also all the ones that only ever got released in Japan because….Nintendo. (One day Tony Tony Chopper-3DS, one day)

The style blogs are still buzzing with tidbits of Fashion Week news. Awards and recognition go out to pop starlets like Rihanna decked out in “Chanel, Lanvin, Christian Dior, Comme des Garçons, Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy and Stella McCartney.” And yet, what is the last word on Spring style for gamers?

Stash away your graphic tees! Stow away your Adventure Time hoodies! Your Tokidoki tattoos need not apply. Spring 2014 belongs to Swarovksi Elements Crystals. All the runway models in Paris and Milan must bow to the triumphant UK homecoming of Jotaro Kujo of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All Star Battle.
