Impressions: Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars

It's one thing to get crap past the radar. It's another thing entirely to ram through the radar building's front door with a go cart and use it as a shortcut. Yes, Conception II takes refuge in its audacity, because no video game on Earth could possibly get away with this and keep a straight face... right? » 4/15/14 11:00pm 4/15/14 11:00pm

Dex's Review: Cross Game

I have a confession to make. I'm not a fan of American Football. My real sports passion comes from the American pastime Baseball. So when Aestevalis recommended Cross Game to us in the first episode of the Ani-TAY Podcast, I went ahead and stuck it on my "medium priority" list.

Why the Muv-Luv Saga is the Greatest Story I've ever Experienced

Muv-Luv is a saga that I consider to be one of the greatest in history. Its dedication to its dark story reminds us all how good it is to be alive. Many of us regard our lives as rather bland and boring endeavors, so Muv-Luv smacked us across the face and defiantly said, "Enjoy it while you can". » 3/28/14 8:00am 3/28/14 8:00am

Dex's Review: Log Horizon

Today it's follow-the-leader as I review Log Horizon in the wake of Richard Eisenbeis. It's a story about an entire community of gamers suddenly and inexplicably getting pulled into the game world of Elder Tale.

Muv-Luv Alternative: The TAY Review

Today I'm reviewing Muv-Luv Alternative; the third part of the Muv-Luv visual novel saga that began with the two-part Muv-Luv. It's a story of self-discovery, loss, and, most cliche of all, love. It's also, hands down, one of the greatest masterpieces in storytelling I've ever experienced. » 3/18/14 8:00am 3/18/14 8:00am
