  1. Haven't made the cut pt. 2

    Here are three more games that didn't make the cut that you might maybe want to check out.

    Oblivious Garden


    This Chinese visual novel has you play as a famed hero stripped of his title and sent to a figurative bird cage where he must teach the Princesses how to fence. As expected, there is more to these ladies than meets the eye, and the game has four romantic routes for you to pursue.

  2. 2016 was an awesome year

    by , 12-31-2016 at 12:17 AM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    So today has been a pretty meh day. As is usual on the last day of a university deadline. But having it be one day before the final day of the year is just in bad taste. Since I was in a group with my brother on this assignment, we were in his apartment together, working, from 2 PM to midnight straight. It was a pretty taxing time for the both of us, not to mention my brother's wife who took on the task of attending to their three children in the meantime.

    Of course all that was sliiiiightly ...
  3. Games that haven't made the cut that you should maybe check out

    Hey there! How are you? Good, good, I am well too.

    It's been a while since I made a blog post. I'm making my way through my to play list... slowly. Unfortunately, some games will not be making it on my top lists. I know, it's sad, but not every game can make the cut.

    So this is a list of games that didn't make the cut (so far) that aren't actually BAD games, just not my flavour for whatever reason. I'll add more updates as I go along.

  5. Hey, is that drunk thread still active?

    You know this girl I liked a lot in university used to say WEEOOOO on her twitter posts.

    Is that drunk thread still a thing, I was just re-reading the post where I said something about drinking with used tampons.

    That looked like it was fun.

    You guys are fun, and did HC just come back and then leave?

  6. Just a thought on theories, research and articles.

    Hey I am just doing some article reading/researching for a paper, and it comes as pertinent to note that there are several types of studies.

    There are ones that are literature reviews.
    There are articles based on theories.
    There are meta-analytical studies.
    There a scientific studies with experiments.

    And really, the list does go on. You can read a paper and it can be entirely theoretical, and it actually has validity.

    There are theories ...

    A single image is worth a thousand words in this case.

  8. On FFVII (part of my Fmarathon rant)

    by , 11-23-2016 at 11:16 AM (Fynn's positive life blog)
    Decided this is worthy of being a blog-post, since it turned out to be a much bigger rant than I expected and I'm not sure the marathon's audience is really there for that kind of stuff

    So far, I can say that

  9. Dr. Strange!

    Well I just saw Dr. strange, and it was good! Benedict Cumberbatch was actually great to watch act. The story of time and perception was good too and I followed along fairly easily.

    I thought it was cool because of the idea of different worlds within ours (this isn't going to be a movie review type of entry, just what I thought was great about the movie). It goes to show what the mind may be capable of, I mean I know of a guy that had a spinal cord injury in the same hospital as I. ...

  10. It's the weekend, I want to take a break from the political stuff *sort of).

    Hiya!

    So while I was reading about the meeting of the First Ladies (I know I just said I wouldn't talk about politics, don't worry it's just a mention!) they talked about the dresses they had picked to wear.

    In the recent years, a lot of controversy has sparked over "why do you ask women what the wear and not the men?". As I read the article, it started to talk about the messages the clothes was trying to send.

    And it kind of does make sense, also ...
