500 Word Game Reviews: Wizardry 8

January 27, 2019

To start off this year’s game reviews, we have Wizardry 8! Despite there being seven games before it, two of which were part of the same ‘Dark Savant trilogy’, this is the first one I’ve played. I have watched the 1991 OVA based on the first game, though – suffers from the usual pacing issues resulting from squeezing a full story into 50 minutes of animation, but I’d recommend it to fantasy anime and RPG fans regardless.

ANYWAY, back to the review, which suffers from the usual issues resulting from squeezing a full game into ~500 words…

AngryJellyfish’s Top 12 Anime of 2018!

January 12, 2019

Two weeks into 2019 already… better get this posted before I forget what I watched last year! 😛

I watched far fewer anime series last year than normal, in order to make time for gaming, so I had a much smaller selection to choose from. That said, I was a lot more picky about what I did pick up each season, and the ones that made the cut were (mostly) very good, so it hasn’t made my selections all that much easier. Here’s what I eventually came up with:

[horriblesubs] seishun buta yarou wa bunny girl senpai no yume wo minai - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.59_[2018.12.08_14.38.36]

Autumn 2018 End of Season Rankings

December 30, 2018

There’s not much time left this year, but I guess I should share my thoughts on the Autumn season before my Top 12 series of 2018, to avoid potential spoilers. 😛 I can’t guarantee I’ll have the time to put that list together tomorrow, but I’ll try my best~

2018 Anime – Top 12 ED Themes

December 15, 2018

Ending theme list time! As ever, Youtube links (to the TV version of the song with animation where available) are in the titles~ [EDIT] Including #2 now, my bad!

I usually end up preferring EDs to OPs for whatever reason, could be the different tone that they usually bring (often less energetic and introductory, more sombre and concluding… if that even makes any sense)? This year is an exception, I’d say the openings just about win, but as this list will hopefully show, there were some good ending themes too!

500 Word Game Reviews: Thief Gold

December 8, 2018

Another game from my childhood, though I mostly just played the tutorial and first level of the original (non-Gold) Thief: The Dark Project, which was free on an old demo disc. When I did eventually buy the full game, I never managed to get past level 2. Time to fix that!

2018 Anime – Top 12 OP Themes

December 3, 2018

It’s December, so time to recycle the usual end of year posts~ 😛 Starting with the best opening themes, as is tradition! I may have only watched about half as many anime series than usual, but my list seems no weaker in spite of this – 2018 was a good year for OPs. 😀

As ever, Youtube links (to the TV version of the song with animation where available) are in the titles, so you can judge my taste in music for yourself…
