By now, most of you may have already heard of or have been spending a lot of hours playing Genshin Impact, the new free-to-play open world Action RPG by MiHoYo. Yes, the same developers of the hit mobile game Honkai Impact 3rd. In fact, this latest foray by MiHoYo has been extremely popular and successful, becoming the biggest globally launched Chinese game ever.

Genshin Impact does have that anime-ish flair to it that can appeal to the anime watching fans out there, and of course to the video game fans as well. Now if you’re part of those demographics and have been playing the game on its default English voice setting, you may want to consider switching it to Japanese because Genshin Impact has an all star cast of Japanese voice actors and actresses that you may have heard from other games and anime. Some of them have even worked on projects together!

When he's not casually preparing a costume for the next convention, researching on the latest anime titles every season, or singing anime/game songs to just let out, Ricki finds his way back to his first and prized hobby: Gaming. Ricki is more of an offline single-player console gamer than online and multiplayer competitor but as long as there's interesting stories, gameplay, and characters (for his cosplay ideas), expect him to be right there in the thick of things.
