Sometimes the latter isn’t so bad.
Today, the sequel to the highly acclaimed Dark Souls came out in Japan. Dark Souls is experiencing a handful of problems such as not even being able to get passed the main menu.
Imagine that, a game so hard you can’t even get passed the main menu.
And just a teaser to tickle your fancies, Dark Souls’ world is larger than Skyrim.

Capcom’s way of trolling. I don’t understand why they have an english unboxing video when IT’S EXCLUSIVE TO JAPAN ONLY.

All jokes aside, lets try to be a bit serious today, I repeat this is not a joke.
Japan’s influence on the gaming industry is pronounced and when the tragic earthquake hit Japan last month, a lot of gamers and video game developers were worried.
Hosted by Vancouver’s own Victor Lucas, on April 3rd there will be a 60-minute special on the industry and Japan.
Guests Include: Will Wright the creator of The Sims, Cliff Bleszinski the creator of Gears of War, Ed Boon of Mortal Kombat and Peter Molyneux of Lionhead Studios.
Japan has a special place in the heart of video game designers, for multiple reasons, says Howard of Bethesda Softworks. “I think it’s unique for designers, most of us know people there. We have friends and other designers we admire there. And if you’re a game fan, Japan means something different to you.”
Industry big names such as G4, Gamespot, IGN, Kotaku and Joystiq all have a hand in this special production.

Team Fortress 2 Players give yourself a pat on the back
In an attempt to help out Japan, players on Team Fortress 2 have been auctioning off their hats and noisemakers for cash to the Red Cross in which 100 percent of the proceeds go to charity. Players have raised over $300,000 for Japan, keep up the good work, many people in Japan will be very happy to see that money, which they desperately need.
Japadogs in Downtown with the Guys
Yummy yummy in my tummy, one deep fried pork hotdog with honey mustard, mayo, pickles, cabbage and special sauce, one classic japanese hotdog with mayo, honey mustard, pickles, seaweed and fried onions. With buttered fries and to wash it all down a Dr. Pepper. Smooth.
One bun I had was very soft, but the other was crunchy probably due to being over cooked. The meal can get a bit messy at times though with all of the toppings overwhelming the small bun.
Japadog is freaking gorgeous, they come in bratwurst, turkey, pork, beef and dessert dogs as well. Tons of colour all around as well as a large variety of sauces, dressings and toppings.
Like mentioned above, the taste is superb, it can be sweet, tangy, salty and spicy. The crunch of the cabbage in the Deep Fried Pork or the Seaweed in the Terriyaki Mayo is so satisfying and the mayo they serve is so smooth and lucious. It is heavenly.
The taste is great, definitely worth the price if you are willing to spend but $15 for two hotdogs, fries and a drink is pushing it a lot.
Verdict: If its one thing you gotta eat when you are in Vancouver it’s Japadogs, it’s a combination of Asian toppings on top of an American past time. If your in the Vancouver area check it out. It ran me down $15 for all of that, but it is well worth it, but you will be begging for another by the end of it and your wallet will be taking a big toll.
