It looks like CimmerianWillow is indeed getting the whole family in on the action! A Phantasy Star cosplay she’s been involved with has been in every one of our galleries so far and it looks like she’s not skipping one yet. Here is an adorable cosplay by her daughter as Alis!

Speaking of her family, here is her husband cosplaying as Wein from Dragon Force! This family has great tastes in games!

Bogus Segata Sanshiro Book Spotted

Bogus Segata Sanshiro BookI spotted the Segata Sanshiro book to the right tonight on my travels across the dark corners of the internet (eBay). So I looked into it to see what it was. Perhaps it was some memorabilia item with a bad cover?

Unfortunately, it appears to be a bogus 140 page ebook that some guy made by scraping information and sentences directly from Wikipedia articles. The credited author is “Isidoros Krastyo Morpheus” and the ISBN is 6137882950. It shows up on a number of sites for sale.

The craziest part? The asking price was over $75 USD! Are there people intoxicated enough in the world to actually purchase this at such a price? Man, I think there’s some Dragon Force and Radiant Silvergun books I need to start knocking out.
