Looking at the above screenshot of a party going on in Iris Online, you can tell immediately whether this is the type of game you will enjoy.

For this Valentine's Day, we wanted to find the best of the screenshots that had been submitted to us -- ones that would embody the spirit of love.

When will the madness of Hello Kitty gadgetry come to an end? We can't take it anymore, seriously.

While we tend to prefer more aggressive robots, or more sporty robots, most of the 500 Shibuya girls surveyed in the latest issue of Robot Life tend to prefer kawaii (um, cuteness).
