As a big fan of Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, I was incredibly excited and intrigued when they announced Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch. I can happily say that I played that game until there was literally nothing left for me to do. I adored the story, the cutscenes...

Hello and welcome to yet another wine and game pairing! I'm really satisfied with this week's pairing. It's not too often that you get to play a game about planting herbs while drinking a mead that tastes like a sunny garden.

First of all, I want to tell you about how I...
