Mint PSA Pokemon card put to the test with bullets, fire, and more… for science

przez admin

Just how safe are your Pokemon trading cards? Well, Dicebreaker put a Mint PSA Charizard through its paces for one video to see just how indestructible the card might be. This includes simply dropping it, shooting it with various armaments, and even trying to roast it; what’s the final straw for this card, or will it pass these extreme tests?

The specifics of the card are as follows: it’s a PSA Mint 9 holographic Charizard GX Pokemon card from the 2019 Hidden Fates set. This means the card is worth approximately £20 GBP, unlike Logan Paul’s Charizard card from the original base set, which is currently worth over £400,000 GBP approximately. Although, Paul argues it’s worth a lot more.

The card at hand arrived in a protective case, and is encased in a second protective case for a little added survivability. The team tested the card (and cases) by putting them through seven different trials, and you can watch exactly how it all went down via the YouTube embed below.

Apple Watch Series 8 may detect user’s fever with temperature sensor

przez admin
The rumored temperature sensor in the Apple Watch Series 8 could provide the ability to detect if the wearer has a fever, as part of its enhanced fitness-tracking capabilities.

Expected in late 2022, the Apple Watch Series 8 is widely anticipated to include some form of body temperature sensing feature as part of its annual update. In a report on Sunday, it is thought that the sensor could provide enough of a reading to determine if the user is enduring a fever.According to Mark Gurman’s „Power On” newsletter for Bloomberg, the Apple Watch Series 8 will include the feature in its standard model, as well as an updated rugged edition. Not all models will gain temperature readings, as an updated Apple Watch SE probably won’t have it.

Aksys Games goes all-out at Anime Expo with 7 new game announcements

The cup runneth over for visual novel and otome fans

There may have been way too many people trying to get into this year’s Anime Expo in Los Angeles this year, but I can sympathize with them. After all, two straight years of online-only events has a lot of us jonesing to get back out there and be around those who share our interest in Japanese entertainment. Not only is the expo the place to see all the upcoming toys you’ll be buying and shows you’ll be watching, but it’s also a great source of game announcements. Case in point: Aksys Games and its Anime Expo reveals.

The specialty publisher announced seven games it’s localizing in the west in 2023. Most of the games will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch, but a few will also make appearances on other hardware.

Of the games announced, the one I’m most interested in is Inescapable from Dreamloop Games. This social survival game casts players as a contestant on a reality television show where 11 strangers are dropped on an island with absolutely no rules. Anybody who makes it to the end of the show walks away with $500,000. The game is said to explore the depths of human desire and what pushes people to lust after clout, wealth, and their desires.

In other words, it’s Westworld!


That one is going on my radar, but the six other games are worth keeping an eye on as well if you’ve enjoyed  Aksys’s past output. Those titles include:

Shuuen no Virche ~ErroR: Salvation

The English title is pending on this one, but ErroR: Salvation covers a country possessed by the god of death where people are cursed to die by the age of 23. A young woman named Ceres, who has a knack for hastening the deaths of those she meets, puts a pause on her plans to commit suicide when she meets a stranger named the „Watchman of Death.” ErroR: Salvation will release next year exclusively for Nintendo Switch.


Spirit Hunter: Death Mark II

The sequel to 2018’s Death Mark: Death Mark will release next year for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Steam. The trailer is one of those „age-restricted” YouTube videos, so click here to give it a watch. Coincidentally, Spirit Hunter: Death Mark and its sequel, Spirit Hunter: NG, are both on sale right now in the eShop.

Norn9: Var Commons & Norn9: Last Era

Norn9: Var Commons was originally released back in 2014 for the PlayStation Vita. Aksys Games localized the game for western audiences the next year, and in 2023, it’s porting the game to Switch along with its fan disc sequel, Norn9: Last Era, which is being localized for the very first time. Norn9 features the adventures of a young prodigy named Sorata Suzuhara who is thrust back in time to 1919 aboard the ship known as Norn9. The first game covers Sorata’s interactions with 11 others as they explore the secrets in Norn. Last Era features a continuation of their adventures in three parts. Both Norn9: Var Commons and Norn9: Last Era will release exclusively for Switch.



Radiant Tale

In Radiant Tale, players will take control of Tifalia, an innkeeper who’s given the chance of a lifetime when a strange group calling themselves CIRCUS ask her to be their new producer. I going to assume that amusing antics and passionate romance await Tifalia on her journey. Radiant Tale will release next year exclusively for Nintendo Switch.


Pups & Purrs Pet Shop

Last but not least is Pups & Purrs Pet Shop, which is easily the cutest game of the bunch. As you might expect, this game will give players control over their own pet shop where they can work and play with adorable animals. Look for it next year on Nintendo Switch.
