  1. So I'm writing a Final Fantasy IX fancomic...

    Ok, I'm really anxious about announcing/plugging this here, but here goes... I'm currently writing a webcomic set in the world of FFIX. It's not a sequel and not (quite) a prequel, but rather a side story (hence the 'Gaiden' in the title) that doesn't even follow any of the protagonists or antagonists. This is about a barely consequential NPC known as Alleyway Jack/Four-Armed Man/"Gilgamesh" and his little brother, Enkido.
    I've been updating every Monday since I started, and I'm ...

  3. Interesting Routes: Aqua

    by , 11-30-2017 at 10:21 PM (Karifean's Blog of Visual Novels)
    There's something truly magical about Himawari that I didn't really realize back when I first read it but have come to appreciate about it more and more.


    Himawari has an enforced reading order, something you don't see a lot in galge without a strong plot focus. However, like other visual novels such as Fate/Stay Night can use it to drive the plot and themes forward in parallel tales, so too does Himawari use it to give us ample ...

    A few days ago, I went to a midnight showing of Princess Mononoke at the Esquire Theater downtown. The very same theater I went to watch it the first time back in 1999 during it's initial release in the States. At that time, I was an avid anime fan who would consume whatever I could find as the medium was only in the beginning phases of it's explosive popularity in the 2000s, so the prospect of being able to watch an anime flick in an actual movie ...

  7. Video game site

    Hey guys, I made a fun, silly little video game site. I'll update it weekly with new stuff. I would also like a montly guest feature (there's a nifty one about Telltale right now by our very own KleinerKiller) so if you ever feel like writing about video games, let me know so you can get your stuff out to tens of people. Opinions, reviews, whatever you want. There's also a nifty site poll and I'll attempt a clay sculpture of the first poll winner! So check it out, share with your friends, etc etc. ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Dies Irae Review

    by , 08-03-2017 at 01:32 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 clich, I am forced to admit. And yet...

    Its actors are of the finest fold; beyond exquisite.

    Thus, I believe you will find it enthralling.

  10. 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 ...
