PAUSING TO PONDER: THE JOURNEY IS THE GOAL

I Recently I had the pleasure of attempting to explain one of my favorite survival games to a family member. “Hey, what are you playing?” “Don’t Starve.” “Oh. So…what’s the point of the game?” “To…not starve…” “But like the goal. “Uh…that is the goal.” But they didn’t seem to quite understand and it was a…

Prey Demo: Impressions from a Survival Horror Scaredy Cat

To be honest I was not a fan of survival horror when I was younger. Really horror in general. My imagination is too strong and sleep wouldn’t have come for me at all if I did. And yet the recent resurgence of well created and story driven horror games have me diving in head first….

What is a Life goal?

Lately, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking (more than usual and on one topic in particular rather than the myriads that I tend to flip through). What is a life goal? And is it really as specific as most make it out to be? I would like to make a case for the argument…

Day 30 – An anime you wish never ended and just continued its story.

Unbreakable Machine Doll There is only one season…one season of a well paced, beautifully animated and interesting world building anime and I want *moar.* It wasn’t necessarily groundbreaking. But all the parts were placed together so well.   The full OST is a beautiful example of orchestral work and a pretty nice rock intro. I’m…

Day 29 – Favorite school uniform

  I was always one of those kids who actually wanted to wear school uniforms. I never had to wear one but as a person who has *never* liked mornings the idea of having a ready, made plan of what to wear on five mornings out of the week was immensely appealing. The only downside…

Day 28 – Favorite pokemon

While I was certainly a child that played Pokemon I was not one that did so at every incarnation. So to choose a favorite is rather simple for me and predictable. But for all of that I have no shame:   EEVEE. Specifically, because it is a jack of all trades and there is a…

Day 27 – Favorite anime ending theme song

I’m honestly not sure if you have a full on favorite ending theme song. Lately, most animals have had ending songs that fell like throwaway. So I’d have to reach back a bit I think. Probably I’d have to choose the 1st Ending of Tenchi Muyo! (OVA). “Talent for Love” Mainly because It’s so rare…

Day 25 – Best anime villian

Shou Tucker from Fullmetal Alchemist (any version you like). He’s selfish and uses science as his reasoning to do anything and doesn’t see why other scientists don’t see things the way he does. Too much logic no morality and delusions of the ‘greater good’ due to scientific (alchemical in this world) advancements. He is a selfish…

Now Entering 2017

I’m sure there will be many other lists talking on and on about how bad 2016 was. And honestly, it was a pretty crappy year both personally and internationally. And really at this point, I think most people will agree with this Comic by  The Oatmeal regarding It. There is simply too much that would…

Day 26 – Favorite anime opening theme song

Music is so important to media that I would argue that most visual media would never be nearly as engaging as it is without it. It’s literally everywhere musical composers are the often unsung hero of the production group. Would Final Fantasy be the same without its music(Typically Composed by Would Final Fantasy be the…
