Rundown (5/31-6/06) The Japanese Localization Building-School

0 PGOS Racial Localization Friendship of JapanIn my dumb brain, companies like Idea Factory International, NIS America, Atlus, Aksys, XSEED, Sekai Project, MangaGamer, JAST USA, Carpe Fulgar, and anybody I’m forgetting all work in the same building located somewhere in California.  The building is based off of the one blueprint that was used to build every high school in Japan circa 1950, and it is a complete mess.  With random unlocalized games everywhere, old bootleg VHS tapes of “the hottest Japanimation”, a locker full of PSPs, this one incredibly disturbing classroom filled with full scale figures and body pillows, and dirty laundry that piles up every week until Jimmy clean up their blankets and graphic tees over the weekend.  Then there’s Nana, who is just sad after spending three thousand hours a year playing everything this company produces, and is flat out disgusted by the tropes at this point.

Rundown (3/22-3/28) D is for Despair, Demise, Death, Desecration, Devastation, etc.

0 DR Welcome to Despair dude you will be sad and upset forever pain and agonyYes, I am sorry that I did not get up my South Park: The Stick of Truth review last week, it’s currently halfway done, and will go up late this week.  JoJo will not be reviewed until the week after, as I find it very hard to watch and properly criticize as it is like listening to a deaf person give a speech, a well written speech, but one that is pronounced so bizarrely that I honestly feel a bit bad listening to it.

Rundown (7/13-7/19) I Am Truly The Nicest One There Is!

0PGOS Adorfable face of cute chubbinessFor the past… I don’t even know how long, there’s been a lot of talk about bringing in a wave of diverse characters and trying to lessen the use of characters fitting a mold of being straight white males with short black hair, athletic builds, and possibly some beard scruff, as that is quite frankly an incredibly dull mold when you consider how those sliders can be manipulated.  Hell, when I started writing, well, writing something that I actually completed, I specifically went out of my way to avoid that mold, when I was dealing with the medium of writing, which is where the character’s visual appearance does not matter all that much as it is not a visual medium.  Yet I still went out of my way to make sure I had balanced ethnicity well, even if I boiled it down to four variants, White, Black, Hispanic, and Asian, made them either pansexual or asexual, and make sure the character at the very least obtains a female form if they do not begin with it… The Transformation, Ascension, and Degeneration of Terra is coming to this blog 11/18/2014 or sooner!  I’ve got about three more chapters and two months of editing left to do, so I’d say early October.  Probably.

Rundown (6/11-6/14) E3 2014: The Mopping of Lost Souls

0KLK Because of that we are soul sisters and don't you forget it broskyE3 has come and gone for the year, returning next time for event number 21 during June 15th to 18th, but that is too far away to remember.  Instead, it is enough to remember everything that happened, and what happened outside of the press conferences.  That is what this post is for, but it also covers unrelated events that occurred at the same time, because that’s just efficient.  I am sure to be missing a lot as I fixate on the things I care about, but here are my Krimskrams of information as always.
