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….

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…

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…

Day 24 – Favorite anime hero or heroine

Shiba Tatsuya from the Irregular at Magic High. Yes, I know he’s appeared on my blog multiple times but…I love him. He’s typically logical and fairly level headed. He’s constantly underestimated because of his standing as the status quo deems it should be. And really, I’m very similar in some ways. I know that at least on…

Day 23 – Anime you think had the best, or most interesting art

There are myriads of anime’s that have beautiful artwork. However, the one with the most interesting, in my opinion, is: Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo It can sometimes be not easy to look at due to all the patterns and colors. In this case, 4K HD may actually be too much for your eyes to…
