3rd November – Figured it’s best to re-use this post than make a new one. A few things have changed a lot around the site, and that’s mostly that I think that we might see more activity here. Kryn’s taking over the role that’s been left be Dusk’s recent resignation (no length walls of text! n.n) and is the new co-leader of the site, and we’re all pleased to welcome back Kieran onto the team! Doofus has left the anime aspect of things to go onto the manga side of the site, so come back in a week or two and you should see some length progress in that department.
For obvious reasons, the old post is found after the jump.
Yo, Alex here! I figured it’s about time to give this place a progress update, explain what’s going on and explain what you can expect from us in the future (if anyone’s left around here…)
The biggest chance for us, and in no uncertain ratio, the biggest chance for the site is the loss of our proper leader, Mimi. Very recently, she was involved in a horrible car accident, and is looking to be facing a very long time in rehab center. Without her being around to keep the team morale up and motivate everyone, I sort of might have stopped managing the team and let them just do whatever they feel like. I don’t know what their reasons are, but mine are pretty much entirely focused around my new university course and the circumstances surrounding Mimi.
Without being aware of what the rest of the group is doing, I asked around, and what I do know is that almost everyone will step away from episodic blogging, with the exceptions being Doofus at a bi-weekly rate, myself trying to continue as things sued to be, and Kryn at a currently uncertain rate. They’ve all got unique circumstances going on, and i’m sure that we all wish them the best with it.
To get the point, basically, until things change in the not so distant future, it’s most likely going to be just me on the episodic blogging, and even then, it might not be weekly. It might be fortnightly, or not…it honestly all depends on how well it can fit around my university schedule. But at the very least, expect some reviews to circulate this site within the next few weeks.
Return to the planet of the Pikmin 9 years after the last installment into what I would consider to be Nintendo’s best franchise, with their hybrid of strategy, survival, puzzles and ladles filled with the adorable factor.
I’d never dipped my hand into the Monster Hunter universe before this game, but to my understanding, it’s a HD port of the Wii’s Monster Hunter Tri, with a refined structure and a large amount of new content. However, for a first time player, it was…well, it was actually pretty overwhelming.
Heya all, it’s been a long time since I last posted. There are many reasons for that, but that’s not really here nor there. I’ll get back into the swing of things pretty soon, but I wanted to leave an update for the blog explaining that Photobucket bandwidth is being an issue, and it’ll be sorted as soon as possible, with the same applying to the slow loading times of the site. Hopefully they won’t be an issue to anyone! ^^
So, as probably most visitors have noticed by now, the current design is as horrible as it could be, consisting of a pre-made theme with no banner to make things even worse.
That happened due to a certain person’s rage (read: mine) leading to the deleting of the CSS. We’ve had some internal struggles lately that affected the blog more than they should have and we apologize for that.
Therefore, in spite of still having the design saved in my computer, to mark the fresh start everyone decided on, I’m currently working on a new design for the blog. It might take some days to be finished, so please bear with us until then.
For my first gaming review for this site, I had to review this game, I just had to. I’m in love with the Animal Crossing series and New Leaf has now beaten the original Animal Crossing for the top spot. And what can I say? If you don’t own a 3DS already, you need to. The 3DS has had a bit of a disappointing history, but there is a promising future for it and at the moment, there are actually some pretty decent games out now, and New Leaf is a must-buy for you if you do own a Nintendo 3DS.

Unless you come here to browse old reviews while drinking a latte in Starbucks because you’re such a sophisticated blogger, you’ve probably noticed there’s been a significant lack of posts. Unfortunately a lot of the writers experienced some difficulties and needed their batteries replacing, so to speak. Not to mention our recurring failure to pay server costs. Just kidding, that totally didn’t happen. On a serious note,
we’re hoping, planning, we will be getting the blog back up and running at it’s original weekly rate of posts; and they will be on time. Good news for everyone. So here’s what you can look forward to this summer;
Alex will be attempting to not sleep through the entire season and blog the remainder of Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S.
Dusk will grace us with her presence to blog Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai: Megami Hen.
Doofus is taking Attack on Titan from Justin, in the hopes that this show is no longer treated like a child waiting to be adopted.
Kryn will take Danganronpa Kibou no Gakuen to Zetsubou no Koukousei, and may or may not butcher it completely.
Justin is giving Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaete mo Omaera ga Warui! a go, in his endless search for something that isn’t a constant cleavage contest.
Lucy is going to blog Free!, because minimum wage doesn’t cover every cost.
If you have any concerns, questions, or suggestions, please tell us by commenting. Feedback is appreciated greatly.
Strategy series have been rampant in the world of video games over the years, but none of them have ever had as much heart and cunning as Fire Emblem’s installments have. Then this one came along and blew everything else in the past thirteen installments out the water with the deepest and most in-depth mechanics and systems that the franchise has ever offered previously.
Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria: Volume 1
This is a review, therefore it’s fundamentally free of spoilers but has a basic synopsis of the story.
Utsuro no Hako to Zero no Maria is a light novel written by Eiji Mikage and illustrated by Tetsuo, and its English translation can be read on Baka-Tsuki.
