Tanto Cuore – Deck Building Card Game Unboxing

Posted on July 6, 2017 by Les Major

Tanto Unboxing

What’s better than anime girls? Anime maids! Japanime Games has you covered with the deck building card game Tanto Cuore! While we were at Anime North this year a friend of mine introduced me to Japanime’s products and it really stuck with me. Thankfully those folks were nice enough to set us up with some materials so we can check out the game and share some brand new videos with you!

As I’m sure you know, we’re relatively new to promoting physical game media like this. It is something we’re passionate about however and we’re happy to finally be bringing content like this to you. The video below features yours truly opening up the core box set of Tanto Cuore. That doesn’t mean there are booster packs. Instead, everything to play the game is included in the main box. There are expansions to the game, but those come in their own full box sets.

We also have a more tactical board game from Japanime Games to check out as well. So stay tuned for that as well as my coverage of actually playing Tanto Cuore! I was surprised to see such a reaction from many of my friends in Toronto. They love the game to pieces so I’m certainly eager to dive in and see what we can do. If all goes well we may even be lucky enough to have some celebrities from our animation joining in for the video!


Visit Another World With This Loot Anime Unboxing Video

Posted on May 4, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Anime and video game fans certainly know a thing or two about escapism. Some of our favorite works in either category allow us to become transported into impossible places and do amazing things that just can’t be done in our everyday life.  My latest Loot Crate unboxing video posits the question: “Where would you go if you could travel to another world?”

Featuring a selection of items curated from a number of series that are all tied together by the theme of entering another plane of existence this box provided subscribers with a brand new figure, manga and an amazing t-shirt. In this video, I get the chance to check out some awesome merchandise from Sword Art Online, No Game No Life, Log Horizon and more.

If you enjoy our periodic unboxing video series for Loot Crate you can also get a box for yourself at a discount by following this link. I’ll be bringing you more of these unboxing videos in the coming weeks.

Disclosure: Loot Crate sends these monthly boxes to Broken Joysticks free of charge for promotional purposes.


May IndieBox Unwrapped – Galak-Z!

Posted on May 3, 2016 by Renee Gittins

This month’s IndieBox was a particularly exciting one for me, featuring Galak-Z, a critically acclaimed, action-packed dog-fighting game with a space ship that transforms into a sword-wielding mech! How cool is that?

Better yet, the box itself features a figurine of this awesome ship that you’ll use with both your stealth and fighting skills to take down intelligent enemies. Oh, and did I mention that there are TWO OTHER GAMES IN HERE? Starr Mazer DSP F. Squadron, a rogue-like scrolling shooter and prelude to the upcoming game Starr Mazer, and Planet Diver, a fast-spaced, space-chasm diving action game.
