A Win Win For Anime Fans? Crunchyroll and Funimation Working Together?

In news that literally came out of left field today, Crunchyroll and Funimation have partnered up for what could be the best thing for anime fans in recent history. As of TODAY, all of Funimation's subbed simulcasts will be streaming on Crunchyroll, and all of Crunchyroll's subbed titles will make their way to Funimation Now, Funimation's streaming service. Now, this isn't all happening overnight, but the endgame is that Funimation will be streaming dubbed anime with Crunchyroll handling subtitled anime. This is GREAT, as now you do not have to sign up for both services if you want only subbed or dubbed anime. Now to see if Neon Alley, Daisuki (which does license some title to both both Crunchyroll and Funimation), Amazon and Netflix to work together for the greater anime good... A guy can dream.

Read up and find out more from Crunchyroll and Funimation and they both have FAQ's up for you all to catch up on.

Quick Review Of The IDrive One 1TB WiFi HDD

So a few weeks back, Cnet had posted a promotion for IDrive that included a year of service AND a 1TB WIFI USB 3 HDD for $34.50. Well, already using a similar device, a Seagate Satellite 500GB (1st revision), I figured I'd try it out. While ordering was quick and easy, everything else was.... silent at best.

Microsoft Lumia 950 XL Anniversary Update First Impressions




TL;DR – It is very good! The UX isn’t perfect, but it is getting there.

I’ve never used a Microsoft Lumia 950 XL before. I ordered the 950 XL because my current 1520 has become a mostly unusable nightmare. Phantom touches galore made it one of the most frustrating UX I’ve ever had the terror of using. I understand it was the hardware. So I tried to keep an open mind. Based on Windows 10:AU’s performance on my 1520, I figured that the 950 XL couldn’t possibly be worse…could it?

Mighty No 9 Finally OUT!

No, Hell hasn't frozen over! Mighty No 9 is finally out and KickStarter Backers should start receiving their codes from Humble Bundle. There is "some" bad news though... A bug on the Xbox 360 version is delaying the game a few days and the Vita version is still in development (PlayStation version is cross buy between the PS3, PS4 and Vita versions). We are just waiting for the PSN store to update to try out our code!

Also, the 3DS version is labeled as "Coming Soon" for all regions and the WiiU version for Australia and Europe as well as the soundtrack are labeled "Coming Really Soon" with the delayed Xbox 360 version. So, after YEARS worth of delays, we finally get the game in hand!

The only downside? Some stores broke street date for the physical versions, so some people have been able to play the game for the last couple of days...

Atlus And SNK Announce The King Of Fighters XIV Release Date!!!

No, that isn't a typo. SNK Playmore is now just SNK and with that, also announced that KOF XIV will land in the US on August 23 for the PlayStation 4! When initially announced last year, the game didn't look so well, but weeks and months later, the game looks great. While we do miss the traditional hand drawn 2D look from the previous 297 versions, it will not stop us from choosing one of 50 fighters to beat up others with! Also, a "Day One" edition will be housed in a Kyo designed steelbook and a classic Kyo costume will be available for the 1st week for free!

Full Press Release After the Break!

Editorial - Hardware Nirvana


Hardware Nirvana [hahrd-wair nir-vah-nuh]
1. A state characterized by freedom from or oblivion to pain, worry, and the limitations of hardware  set forth by restrictive ecosystems.
It is a beautiful thought isn’t it? Pick the device you want. PC, Tablet, Phone. Don’t worry about whether it has Android, Windows 10, Windows Mobile, or iOS. You don’t worry because you know that all the software you use will be available and easily installed. But can it be done?

The Vigilante Diaries Is Back As A Feature Length Film!

If you have been on this site for a bit, you may or may not remember "The Vigilante Diaries." Initially released as 2 webisodes on the now defunct Chill.com, I was a huge fan, so I was initially disappointed that 1: it didn't make it's crowdfunding goal to continue the series and when 2: Chill.com went under. While I know Christian Sesma and Paul Sloan were hoping to bring it back, I have heard nothing more in a long while. So consider me surprised AND excited when the PR landed in my inbox about a feature length movie being screened later this week!

Well, enough fanboying out, full press release after the break
