Anime Review: Nyarko: Another Crawling Chaos

Sorry for the lack of a post last week. It was something I kept putting off for no other reason than I was incredibly lazy, and was more interested in the 4 day weekend that Thanksgiving was going to give me. It was pure laziness nothing more. Anyway, this time I have an anime that I never really expected to review because a few weeks ago I didn't even know it existed. But given Japan's proclivity for taking anything and turning it into a romantic comedy featuring a cast of beautiful high school girls, I really should have expected it. So here is Nyarko: Another Crawling Chaos, a High School romantic comedy featuring Cthulhu monsters.

Game Review: Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight

First Person Dungeon Crawler RPG; 3DS; Atlus; 2015
Hey, I'm writing the review on time this time, how about that. There isn't much to say this time around, although coming up I'm going to go see Ghost in the Shell: The New Movie, which I can only assume that Nintendo decided to name the film. Serious, "The New Movie" how long is it going to be before that title becomes inaccurate. Anyway, this time I have a video game review about the latest entry in a series you guys should know that I'm VERY much into. Let's dig into Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Fafnir Knight.

Anime Review: Ben-to

You know, maybe getting a gaming PC might not be the best idea when you want to write reviews for a blog. Because every time I start it up, I'd much rather check out Steam and see what ridiculous deals I can get instead of actually writing something. Anyway, this week we have an anime, an anime about food... and fighting... and fighting for food... This is Ben-to.

DEMO-lition: Stella Glow

Sorry I'm so late this week. I just started playing Trails in the Sky and it's surprising how easy it is to start playing it and then forget how long you've been playing it, especially when you are trying to find a good place to stop. ANYWAY, This week I'm doing another DEMO-lition where I give a run down on a Demo I've played recently on an upcoming game and share my thoughts on the game and the Demo itself. This week I'm tackling Stella Glow, the last game made by Image Epoch, for those who don't know a little back story. Image Epoch was a smaller RPG developer that started in 2005 and is most well known for games like Luminous Arc, a SRPG with a plot revolving around witches, and Arc Rise Fantasia, an interesting RPG for the Wii with a unique battle system that probably needed a bit more tweaking.

Stella Glow was to be the project that marked Image Epoch's 10th Anniversary. Unfortunately, things didn't turn out too well for the company. Image Epoch's CEO Ryoei Mikage went missing around April and rumors of Image Epoch's poor state started to circulate. Image Epoch finally declared Bankruptcy in May and now the company is no more. Fortunately, Stella Glow was able to be completed either before the Bankruptcy or after through the efforts of Stella Glow's Publisher SEGA, and thanks to Atlus we in the west are going to see this game for the 3DS in another two weeks, but how is the game? Well let's check out the Demo.
