The Network Roundup: Happy 30th Birthday Macross

7:30 PM on 10.05.2012 // Hiroko Yamamura

Yup, we're getting old.

It's hard to imagine that it was 30 years ago yesterday, The Super Dimension Fortress Macross hit the airwaves in Japan. The first series which consisted of 36 episodes would forever change my life, and heavily mold my future anime, manga, and gaming taste. How much has Macross and its US adaptation as part of Robotech effected your life?

From hot new movie reviews to Fall anime roundups, The Network has some ideas on how to spend some of your Super Dimensional money this weekend. I'll be working on some exciting features for next week's Macross Week, over at Japanator, so Protoculture addicts should check back in to get their fix. Join me in wishing the Macross series and the lovely Miss Minmei a happy 30th birthday, and feeling old about the whole thing.

Does anyone know if Advent of Indies is happening this year? I looked it up today and didn't find any updates on their Twitter since January.

I brought that cake I made into work and it disappeared fast. Maybe if I lose my job I can just make a living selling cakes on the end of my street.

My review-in-progress of Just Cause 3: Explosions - good. Grappling hook - good. Flying - good. Driving - an abomination. 8/10.

Well, ugh, this is awkward. A year ago I wrote a cblog about cool indie games coming in 2015, and not a single one of them has been released :/

I was happy to have never spoiled myself the final boss of Splatoon's campaign. That was one of the best boss fights ever and I absolutely love the credits track. So relaxing. [youtube][/youtube]

Today's kids will never know the struggle of putting an encyclopedia on top of an NES Max to auto-buy 99 potions before heading into Terra Cavern

Sometimes, on more dreary days, I make a smiley face with sliced-pickle eyes and bacon grin in my lunch-burger. It fills me up all the same, but I feel a warm sense of accomplishment, achievement and satisfaction on top of it.

When I was a lad, I loved this game something fierce. [img][/img] Anyone else ever play the tie in Small Soldiers games? Maybe it's nostalgia, but I remember them being not too bad.

Finally got my surface pro 3. Holy shit I love this little guy. And Windows 10 is better than I thought.
Putting more effort into iOS game review than African American history book report. This is not what Dr. King died for. Or maybe he did, I wouldn't know because I'm not doing the book report. Wha-hey!!
