  1. Sonic 3: A Follow-Up

    I was telling Darth-Ganon that I decided to revisit Sonic 3, a game I previously couldn't see the appeal of, after beating Sonic Mania, which in terms of design seemed like a half step between Sonic 2 and 3. I can now happily say that Sonic 3 has definitely grown on me, but I only grew to love it once I approached its level design differently than from most other Sonic games:

    To start, I loved Sonic 2 because it was very arcadey; alternate paths are easy to spot, but also easy to miss ...

  2. Dies Irae Review

    by , 08-03-2017 at 12:32 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    Dies irae ~Amantes amentes~ is a visual novel created by Light. It was one of the most renowned JP-only VNs before finally getting a localization in June of this year.


    Come, gather and bear witness to my opera, now in the making.

    Its script is the height of cliché, I am forced to admit. And yet...

    Its actors are of the finest fold; beyond exquisite.

    Thus, I believe you will find it enthralling.

  3. Final Fantasy V making me feel

    Okay, so I get that a lot of the criticisms towards FFV's plot/characters are justified, but I just beat Atomos, and I realize that this entire adventure has just been Galuf slowly losing all of his friends, and its seriously smurfing me up. Seriously though, for a serious often panned for it's melodrama, there's something very subdued and nuanced about the way Galuf mourns Xezat for a game that's normally so tongue-in-cheek. Really loving FFV so far. I had put it down for a while because I was ...

  4. Umineko: Episode 4 Tea Party

    by , 07-09-2017 at 08:57 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    You talk too much. All you have to do is honestly say 'I'll kill you'.

    For those that don't know, the climaxes of Episodes 4, 5 and 6 are my 3 favorite moments in Umineko (which also makes them my 3 favorite moments in fiction overall), all for their own individual reasons. I've been dying to talk about them for a while. I figured I'd start with the Episode 4 Tea Party, quite possibly the greatest example of Ryukishi's writing skill of them all.

    This post will contain ...

  5. SubaHibi set for late August release

    So this probably won't be relevant for most people here since non-PG and all, but SubaHibi, one of the most hyped visual novels in recent memory, is set to be released in English in late August.


    The method of release is kind of strange, ngl. Apparently they offer the first chapter of the game in all ages on Steam for 30 bucks and then provide ...

  6. Tekken Outfits!

    It's time to share the outfits it took me 2000 fights to unlock in Tekken 7! Unfortunately the customization options are somewhat lacking so I had to reuse clothes. Anywho, enjoy and prepare for a lot of pastel colours

    Alisa:
    (SPOILER)

    This first one is just a pallet swap of her default outfit. I like these colours much better. Her hair is also blue and pink, my two fave colours (although not necessarily those shades)

  7. Part of your world

    by , 06-06-2017 at 04:37 PM (Fynn's positive life blog)
    So there's this nagging issue I've had for quite some time now. It's a pretty abstract issue but one I think is pretty interesting and perhaps even important to share nonetheless. For many reasons, it has only become more pronounced recently.

    As some of you may know, I want to be a writer. I try to do as much writing as I can. I even do writing for a living, though as an SEO copywriter, it's not exactly that I have an opportunity to spread my creative wings as part of what keeps giving ...

  8. Fantasy vs. Reality

    "You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall."

    For those who don't know, my real life politics are of a very Progressive persuasion.I'm a filthy SJW, if you are the kind of person who uses that term seriously. My YouTube Subscriptions are all to channels fighting a heroic e-battle against the stream of right wing racism, misogyny and transphobia that plagues that site.

  10. Why We Needed Dear White People




    This blog post is a copy over from my original which you can find here. Dear White People was a 2014 indie movie directed by Justin Simien that conveyed the tensions of being black at an Ivy League institution and disproving the notion that we live in a post-racial society. The series adaptation takes place ...
