This weeks installment of A week in Tokyo. If you know of anybody else doing the same sort of weekly life post then let us know as I personally would love to learn about life in other regions too.
First up is dinner meeting with Good Smile Company's staff members in Matsudo. This is Indotei restaurant just below the Good Smile offices. Tis no coincidence as the place is run by Max Factory - not only do they make great figures, they also make great curry too!
The boss at Good Smile told me to tell you that if you go for food at Indotei and mention dannychoo.com and also ask the staff to call Good Smile, they will give you a figure along with your meal.
Looking for office space in Tokyo. Plan to hire more staff next year and have the servers on site.
I'm also expanding my network of remote programmers. If you are seasoned at PHP, MYSQL, AJAX, CSS, familiar with the MVC model and are interested in working remotely part time for me then contact me at .
Am also looking for designers who are seasoned at Flash and UI work. Send me some examples of your work and your hourly rates. Payment will be into your paypal account.
Superstar programmers who are able to work well with my team may have an opportunity and be recruited to work in Tokyo for my company Mirai Inc (should you wish to). I will sponsor your visa.
At a meeting with the folks at iKnow. iKnow is building the next generation language learning technology. Currently only English learning is available but Japanese should be available in the future. Is great for reverse learning Japanese although you need a certain level of Japanese to do that.
In my opinion is the best game on the Wii so far - No More Heroes.
The attention to detail in this game is amazing. Presentation is utterly cool and has extremely good use of the remote and nunchuck.
Travis is the character you control and from being a cool dude who goes around town slashing up his opponents with his beam katana, he is an otaku too and you may just be able to make out all the figures he has in his room here.
I didn't think sword action would be this good - much more fun than any of the previous Devil May Cry games.
If you own a Wii then try to check out this game - its really bloody awesome - and humorous too. Wallpaper and official site here. Currently playing one level per gaming session as I tend not to play for prolonged lengths of time - I start to feel that I need to do more work before I can continue to reward myself with more gameplay time ^^;
Used to sit playing games for hours on end when I was a student. Tomb Raider and MGS on the PS2 immediately spring to mind.
How long do you spend playing games in one session?
