Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody 2 Light Novel Review: The Harem Expands

Review: When I reviewed the first book in this series I was pleasantly surprised by the writing even if the plot did seem padded and there were definitely moments in the story I could have done with out. As we plunge into the second book, I have to wonder why people think more is better? … Continue reading Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody 2 Light Novel Review: The Harem Expands

Baldur’s Gate 2 Update

I only recently did a post about what I was playing recently but this weekend (while trying to unwind and de-stress) I had a novel experience. If you've never played Baldur's Gate then you probably don't know that in the game you assemble a party as you wander about and you can change party members … Continue reading Baldur’s Gate 2 Update

What I’m Playing: Baldur’s Gate II: Shadow’s of Amn

I haven't done a gaming post for awhile and that's mostly because I restarted Baldur's Gate II. This was one of my favourite games when I was in highschool and I literally dropped hundreds of hours into playing it. The worse thing was that after several upgrades to my computer system my original game discs … Continue reading What I’m Playing: Baldur’s Gate II: Shadow’s of Amn

Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 6: What is Sakurai Doing?

Review: So far this show had managed to avoid having characters act too stupidly with Sakurai figuring out fairly readily that with all those similarities Hayashi kind of had to be Morioka. I kind of appreciated that. And then we get this week where Sakurai has the perfect moment to fess up and tell how … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 6: What is Sakurai Doing?

Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 5: Good Progress

Review: Another great episode as the real world and the game world collide. At least even the characters are acknowledging there is a lot of coincidence at play, but they aren't pushing it to ridiculous levels. Plus it was kind of clear that the convenience store guy would know Morioka in the game so that … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 5: Good Progress

Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episodes 3 + 4: Fantastic Transition

Review Episode 3: Any concerns I had about this series were kind of put to rest during episode 3. It still isn't a perfect series but for what it seems to be trying to do it is doing it very well. The entire first half of this episode deals with Sakura and Morioka in the … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episodes 3 + 4: Fantastic Transition

Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 2: Adorable in its use of Cliche

Review: This episode continues with Hayato and Lily getting closer in the game but also brings Moriko and Sakura together in real life in a fantastically contrived and gloriously anime cliché moment as they quite literally collide. I think because the show isn't actually asking me to take this seriously it is easier to swallow … Continue reading Recovery of an MMO Junkie Episode 2: Adorable in its use of Cliche

Gamers Episode 12: Interesting Choices

Review: One thing Gamers has been consistent about is going in a different direction to what I have expected to the point where I stopped trying to make predictions for this show many episodes ago. This final episode is no exception. The introduction sequence where we are reunited with the other guy Tendou recruited into … Continue reading Gamers Episode 12: Interesting Choices
