First Look at Miyazaki’s New Manga

The 72-year-old legend, Hayao Miyazaki, has said to retire after his latest film, The Wind Rises, releases. Well, The Wind Rises was released in June of Japan and will release early next year in the United States, but it seems like Miyazaki is enjoying his “retirement,” by working on something new: a manga based off of samurai in the Warring States era of Japan. No word on this manga releasing soon, but it’s a promising bit of info for those wanting more from Miyazaki, post-directing!

'Gravity Rush' Review: Falling To The Top With Style

Gravity Rush is a PlayStation Vita exclusive open world action RPG directed by Keiichiro Toyama and written by Naoko Sato - both known for their work on Siren and the first Silent Hill. It’s like Hayao Miyazaki, Solatorobo, inFAMOUS, and Crackdown had a baby. It’s also by far the best looking and most innovative game on the Vita and one of the best games of the year.

AWESOME

  • Gorgeous art direction, level design, and character designs bursting with charm and personality.
  • Intriguing story filled with a memorable cast of characters that are sure to spawn countless works of fanart, cosplay, tattoos, etc.
  • Massive open world that you’ll want to explore even after the credits roll.
  • Some of the later levels are beautifully trippy and have a clever puzzle element to them. They’re so awesome that you’ll probably wish more of the game was like this.

NOT AWESOME

  • Combat is often clunky.
  • Whack load times.
  • Abrupt ending that doesn’t really sum anything up.
