Overlooked Thursday: Folklore

Dissection Wednesday: Valkyria Chronicles

Dissection Wednesday is a segment dedicated to looking into games that do things that should really be applauded, whether it be how the story is told, how the game plays, or even both. These are games that either left an incredible mark on ...

 
 
 
 

In-Depth Tuesday: Killer 7

In-Depth Tuesday is a segment in which I try my my best to explain some of the more difficult narratives that exist in videogames. This means I will dissect and find things such as symbolism, allusion, etc. The main point is to help get acr...

Top Ten Saturday: Top Ten Mega Man Games

Mega Man is just one of those franchises that will never die. It will live on until people stop liking to have their asses ripped apart by torture-chamber-esque level design that emphasize quick reflexes and memorization. It's one of the fe...

About Canti-samaone of us since 9:47 PM on 08.03.2009

Hello, I'm Trevor Johnson, also known as Canti-sama. I like to write about things including videogames (that should be paramountly obvious at this point...) music, film, and anime, so what you see in this blog is just one part of my pretentiousness! I'm a nit-picky bitch when it comes to basically everything, so excuse me if I seem like kind of an elitist, even though I try not to be. If I had to sum up who I am, I would do it through top 5 lists, so how about we a do a few right now! But before that, since DTOID tends to remove frontpage posts from my c-blog, here's the list of my frontpages, which I thank everyone very much for!
