Xanadu Next Review

The original Xanadu was released for Japanese home computers back in 1985 as the second entry in the Dragon Slayer series.  An incredibly long running franchise that was known for changing up its core concept and general gameplay almost completely with each installment, and went on to inspire a multitude of subseries, most notable the Legend of Heroes or Trails series.  Xanadu itself was more of an offshoot title, one that was expanded with an additional scenario and even a Hudson developed spin-off for the NES by the name of Faxanadu.   Continue reading

Rundown (10/11-10/17) Feces Makes the Heart Go Yonder

Press Switch you are a poopy face doo doo head dumb dumb steamy boily feces shit fuck you suckSo, the Trans-Pacific Publishing trade agreement is a big thing this week, and it may affect all media in Japan, Australia, the United States, Canada, and more.  It will increase the already overpowered corporations’ power, is vaguely written, and will exacerbate the problems with copyright laws, laws that have been mangled and mutilated over the past few decades.  You could be deemed a criminal for having the audacity to leak information that the public ought to know about, even if it’s something as simple as a game being technically broken upon release.  Tampering with software files would be illegal, from removing DRM, to fixing games, and potentially even mods, which would be viewed as hacking.  Piracy could be met with the destruction of your hardware and neigh unlimited fines, and this whole thing was written by corporations for it, so why in the fuck would any true human being support that shit?  Seriously, the fact this democratic government would so much as consider this sort of putrid pulsating piece of poo for a second is disgusting.

Rundown (1/04-1/10) Dial Doctor Genocider ‘Cos I’m a Lazy Girl

0 MLM Murder KareokeWork is my reason for not doing a game review last week, and I will be sure that I have one ready this week, and probably two the week after, as I will dive into the visual novel bin upon completing Dark Souls.  I have not been in the mood to write after waking up at 6:30, being put on a train, working for seven to eight hours, and then going on another train, arriving back home ten hours later, and only having about six hours before I gotta go to do my bedtime stuff.

Rundown (12/28-1/03) Fart 4 Friendshipping

0 KLK DOuble Friendship surpriseWell, 2015 is now upon us.  It is a nice number, multiple of five, and has a nice calendar.  It also happens to be the year where I will set a few of my upcoming novellas during, as I am the sort of guy who needs to tell the reader the date when writing a story.  It is a dumb obsessive trait that I will probably never work out of, mostly due to how I doubt anybody will ever talk to me about my stories.  Hell, they are a secret to everybody I know off of the interwebs, partially due to how I lack any friends… Continue reading

Rundown (12/14-12/20) Bite off the Bitter End and Then Choke on It!

0 Watamota Soda burst Typical It Figures ObviouslyTomorrow I am releasing my seventh Novella, A Vile Doohickey.  I have been spending the past two and a half months tinkering away on it, and feel as if it is as good as it will get without another pair of eyes to help me out, and I wanted to get it out before this year’s end.  That means I have released a novella, and two novels in 2014… which is kinda crazy when I think about it.  It’s also the year where I started really working, effectively decided that I do not really care for college, and would rather work in an office for the rest of my days than learn something I will forget within six months.
