E3 Nintendo: My thoughts (the only one I'm doing)

A Game for the Hardcore: Devil Summoner 2

For Those About to Die: The Tribhvana

These guys are a bunch of idiots. I recently got to re-acquiring a copy of Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga 2. I was going to pick up where I left off and fight Vritra. Unfortunately, all that was on the memory card was the save fi...

That One Mook: Contrarion King

I know what you must be thinking. "Why am I entering in my own contest? That's so stupid/unfair." Well, I'm not. I am just doing it for fun, and it won't really count. So you can stop worrying and asking stupid questions. Also, I couldn't f...

 
 
 

Time for a contest: Update (kinda short)

A bit of an update on the contest today. Due to some circumstances slightly beyond my control, the contest's deadline has been moved to the 19th. This is mostly due to the fact that I am pretty busy this week, and won't be able to ship the ...

 
 
 

Time for a Contest (updated list and index)

A Game for the Hardcore: Odin Sphere
