Game Usagi has been undergoing a lot of changes in anticipation for our 3rd birthday on May 1st. The first and biggest change is that logging in to comment on Game Usagi has been significantly stream-lined. You can now use your Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, Twitter, OpenID or Windows Live ID to log-in and it will automatically set you up with a GameUsagi account and enable one-click logging in from then on. It’s good to know what’s been going on, so here’s what else been changed at Game Usagi recently:

With the gaming market trending very quickly to HD audio and visuals, we find ourselves in need of a lot more equipment to get the most out of our games. I myself have purchased HD TVs, surround sound systems/headphones, PC gaming rigs, and video game systems all to take advantage of the higher resolution and clarity offered with cutting-edge technology. Well, even if you have all of the fancy gadgets, you’re still going to need a ton of cables to hook everything together. With all of the cables to buy, it’s best if you can get them on the cheap, as long as it doesn’t risk reducing the all-mighty clarity that your system will produce in the end. We recently had a budget-priced HDMI cable (that of course works on all HDMI-compatible devices) sent to us for review, so read on to see how it fared.

The first Assassin’s Creed, even though riddled with bugs and repetition was a unique and deep enough experience that it sold quite well and brought a good amount of solid gaming hours to everyone who played it. Looking to fix some of the mistakes of the past, Ubisoft Montreal set out to make a more fleshed-out Assassin’s Creed experience while continuing the intriguing (and somewhat convoluted) story-line and helping us discover The Truth. You can find out about whether or not their efforts were in vain after the jump.

Well, I’ve probably already lost all my credibility by reviewing a Pokemon game, but because of the bad TV show, people who play Pokemon games are branded as immature children. What most people don’t understand is that the main Pokemon games are actually well-crafted RPGs. However, does this peripheral installment in the best selling RPG series of all time live up to the standard set before it?
Hey, ya’ll. Just a little rebranding going on here at Game Unagi due to our recent takeover by Unagicorp, Ltd. from Japan. We’ll still be providing the same quality reviews and otaku opinions as always, just under a new banner and with better funding. It’s been fun so far and thanks for sticking with us during this time of change. Our URLs and the like will be fully switched over in a couple of days, but we’ll let you know when to change your bookmarks ahead of time.
For those wondering, unagi is the Japanese word for freshwater eel.
