I’ve held off on reviewing Happy Sugar Life for some time now and some of you may have been wondering why I hadn’t reviewed it yet, especially since I reviewed everything else I watched during the summer already. That’s right, I knew it was a good fit for Halloween reviewing so I saved the best for last. Hitting the number two spot of my favorite anime so far, here’s why you should give Happy Sugar Life a watch.Continue reading “Freaky Friday 4 of 4 – Happy Sugar Life”→
Most people I know really enjoy sleeping. It is one of their favorite activities after a long day. Who can really blame them? After all recharging and waking up refreshed is a nice feeling. Now imagine that if you went to sleep that you would die. This is the premise behind Rooster Teeth’s mystery thriller, Day 5. Come and explore the apocalypse with me and see why you should check this amazing series out!Continue reading “Freaky Friday 2 of 4 – Day 5”→
The Summer 2018 season didn’t grace us with many gifts this season but the ones it did bring were quite good. One of them was Cells at Work! which is a better version of the Osmosis Jones television series (and film; 2002 & 2001 respectively). The series is all about the cells that well, for lack of a better word, work within our bodies. You follow a Red Blood Cell as she bumbles her way about, constantly getting rescued by White Blood Cell, and learning about various aspects of the body along the way. However, there is one thing that truly makes this worth while, and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, you should; that’s right: Platelets!Continue reading “Cells at Work! – Platelet Appreciation (Also a Review… I Guess)”→
For today I’ll be talking about something totally different than usual, I’m going to be recommending you a YouTube channel I stumbled across earlier this week. What do you get when you combine marble courses, sports commentary, and excellent production? You’d end up with the channel, “Jelle’s Marble Runs” which is filled with all sorts of cool marble videos, most notably, the annual MarbleLympics. Trust me, this is one satisfying experience with a bit more to it than you might expect.Continue reading “The Marble Olympics – Something Cool I Found & Had to Share”→
Recently I decided to fiddle around with the newly released English version of SRPG Studio that launched on Steam. For those unfamiliar, it is the engine used to make games akin to Fire Emblem, meaning you can make tactics based RPG’s with it. Even the creator of Fire Emblem, Shouzou Kaga uses the software for doujin games. I made a full concept demo using just the free demo version in under 24 hours. Let’s dive into that experience and review the software some.Continue reading “SRPG Studio – I Made a Game!”→
Today I’d like to tell you about this exciting board game called, “But Wait, There’s More!” a game that can be experienced with 3-10 players! Imagine yourself as one of those infomercial people having to sell products like a hammer or key. Not just any ol’ hammer or key though, oh no sir! Your hammer may be able to solve all your night-time worries or expand on command. Did I mention you were being timed? You have to give your spiel fast or risk those pesky viewers from changing the channel on you. Sounds exciting right? But wait, there’s more! As you pitch your idea you have to include an on-the-fly feature making for one wacky experience. So what are you waiting for?!? Grab your copy of, “But Wait, There’s More” for just… wait, this game is out of print now?
That’s pretty much an example of the game right there. it’s very similar to another game called Snake Oil but I love this one a lot more! Unfortunately, as I was writing this I learned that the game is unavailable right now. If you do manage to find a copy of this one for cheap someplace pick it up because it is one of the most fun party games I have. It’s always a huge hit!
To see the game in action and get a second opinion, check out The Dice Tower’s review of the game which I’ve posted below:
Tom recommends this too!

My buddy decided one day that he was had to show me Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. and I obliged him. He had mentioned it a few times and it sounded kind of insane. What was just meant to be him showing me a bit of the movie to see if I might want to watch it later, turned into us actually watching the whole thing. I knew it was a B movie and I really wasn’t expecting much, but Kabukiman was both funny and entertaining throughout.Continue reading “Sgt. Kabukiman N.Y.P.D. – Basically a B Version of The Mask”→
Here’s the schedule as we come into the final five of these posts. Today I am going to be talking about the best fight in anime. This is the one, and only, time that you’ll be seeing a repeat for a show from me in this entire challenge. I made a rule that I wouldn’t use a show for the main feature twice and talked about that in the last one, but then I come and immediately throw in out. Whatever, it’s my site! Any way, any guess to what show I might be referring to yet? That’s right! My Hero Academia is back in the spotlight for this one.Continue reading “The 30 Day Anime Challenge Day 26 – The Best Anime Fight”→
