Boyfriend Dungeon: A Game Where You Can Date... Your Weapons?

I've been a gamer ever since I can remember, and I'm the type of girl who can't resist downloading an app on my phone the minute it looks like it's fun to play. (Apps get their money's worth when they show up while I'm playing something or scrolling through my feeds, I'm tellin' ya!)

Anyway, one of my favorite games when I was in grade school was 'Thousand Arms' on the PlayStation. In case you haven't played it, it's this JRPG where you occasionally go on dates with different characters. I had so much fun with it because in-between all of the fighting, you'd get to chill and try to get to know different people. You'd have to gauge their personalities and answer them accordingly. One of my favorite games hands down!

So, when I heard of 'Boyfriend Dungeon', you can only imagine how much my interest piqued. In a nutshell, 'Boyfriend Dungeon' is a video game where you fight a bunch of monsters with weapons that you find. The twist? You can date your weapons to level them up! Huh? Say what?

And look: they're hot!!!

Of course, I have no idea if the dating gameplay will be anything like 'Thousand Arms', but I've been itching to play a dating video game ever since 'Thousand Arms'; I'll take anything at this point. Check out the game's teaser video here:

Is it just me or does that sound downright awesome? 'Date your weapons' was the pitch that KitFox games made on Kickstarter in order to finish 'Boyfriend Dungeon', which will be released on PCs in 2019.

If you don't like dudes, don't worry. They have women you can date, too, as well as non-binary characters (yes, they thought this through). I absolutely cannot wait for this one!

'Boyfriend Dungeon' is estimated to be released in September 2019. To back the Kickstarter project, click here.

Here's Why Lufthansa Employees All Wore Sneakers Last Friday

If you flew with Lufthansa last Friday, you may have noticed something different... about their feet. Last Friday, on August 24, all Lufthansa employees wore sneakers to work. And not just any sneakers, either; but specially designed limited edition adidas sneakers for their employees.

The sneakers weren't just worn on flights, either. All Lufthansa employees worldwide wore them, even announcing August 24 as Lufthansa Sneaker Day.

The day serves as a special symbol of the extra efforts that Lufthansa employees do during the summer when they go the extra mile for their customers, regardless of what the industry might be going through.

Of course, participation in the special day is completely voluntary and they don't need to wear the special sneakers, either, if they don't want to (but why wouldn't they want to, amirite?)

I don't know about you, but I wish our office had employee-exclusive kicks, too. When in Manila x Adidas sneakers? That would be so bad-ass! Huhuhu.

Walking into the Netflix Universe at AsiaPOP Comicon 2018

If there's anything I look forward to every year, it's AsiaPOP Comicon. Not only do I get to meet my idols (read my interview with 'Castlevania' creator Adi Shankar here) and meet my crushes (read about on my surreal moments with Mike Colter aka Luke Cage himself here); but I also get to cosplay and geek out to my heart's content without any judgment... or with minimal judgment at the very least. :p

The best place to geek out during APCC, though, tends to be at the Netflix area, where you not only transport yourself into the wonderful worlds found inside Netflix, but you also get to pretend like you're a part of those worlds (if you wish to pretend, anyway).

This year, Netflix really amped up the experience with some cool stuff.

Upon entering, it felt like entering the real Chinatown.

The walls were on point!

You could punch the walls like Iron Fist!

There was a cool 180 video where you could pretend to be part of The Defenders.

You could get a tattoo of your choice (I got a dragon - Iron Fist represent!)

You could spray paint the walls.

You could visit Pop's in Riverdale.

And have a milkshake there.

Watch Josie and the Pussycats perform.

And get your class photo taken, whether you're a Vixen, a jock, or a Serpent.

The Black Hood was actually walking around, too, but I didn't get to catch him.

You could get your face painted as per your favorite Aggretsuko character.

You could visit Disenchantment's Potion Shop.

You could also visit the Hawkins arcade.

And even play games inside.

You could draw and help create Will's map to the Upside Down.

You could even open the door and witness the Upside Down, as seen at the end of my quick video of the Netflix Universe at AsiaPOP Comicon 2018 here:

Suffice to say AsiaPOP Comicon was one for the books - with special thanks to Netflix for making it all the more memorable! :)
