Only 9998 more levels to go!

If you’ve played a lot of RPGs or MMOs you know the term well. What makes the idea of grinding so well-known? Why do we loathe (or perhaps even love) it? Tonight the Inverseman investigates.

In the ani-blogging world, there exists certain posts which are meant to encourage multiple blogs to participate. In other words, a circle jerk. (I say that in a completely non-derogatory way. Seriously.) Enter the ABC Award.

For me, these kinds of posts are interesting since I’m not overly engaged with the ani-blogging community for a variety of reasons (although I’m familiar with many blogs); I suppose the main reason is I find the community too big and thus it can be time consuming getting to know so many people. So naturally, this type of post is something that lets me connect and meet new ani-bloggers while getting to know ones I already have a friendship with.

I have to thank Overlord-G (and later Justin) for nominating me for this award. Here are the rules:

1. Download the award logo and add it to your acceptance post.

2. Nominate a few fellow bloggers and share the award. (Not doing this.)

3. Since the award is ABC, take each letter of the alphabet and use it to tell something about yourself.

Simple enough. For disclosure, all these answers will be my own. Some of my writers might do their own down the road, but I highly doubt it (lazy ass writers!). Let’s begin. Continue reading »

Heya, Kaushik here again this week, with a video game! This time it’s the demo for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, generally known as FF13-3. The demo was released on PSN earlier this week, so that’s the version I’ll be covering. I know a lot of people dislike the series (that may be putting it lightly) and I can understand their frustrations with the direction Final Fantasy has taken in recent years. I liked FF13 more than most I think, but even I’m getting a little sick of this universe and these characters. Still, I’ll approach this demo as impartially as possible! So without further ado, let’s go~

Now in classic 1D

In this day and age of computers and handheld electronics of all varieties, is there even a point to tabletop gaming anymore? I’ve discussed how video games will never die, but has the board game or card game been “strictly outclassed”? Or, is there still a place for gathering around a kitchen table on Friday nights? The Inverseman here with a few thoughts on the matter.

Hey all, Judge here. In celebration of Mother’s Day, we’ll be looking at some of the hottest moms in the video game world. For last year’s Mother’s Day, I compiled a list of the hottest moms in anime. Also, take a look at my friend Overlord-G’s list of hottest moms in anime. I’ve said it with many of my list posts but I’ll say it again: don’t take them too seriously, especially ones regarding “hotness” of fictional characters. I’m not a 2D worshiper, a pervert, or sexist. Well then…

10. Matriarch Benezia (Mass Effect)


If you believe women, like wine, get better with age, Benezia is for you. Especially if you’re into blue-skinned alien chicks. I’ll take her daughter Liara though. Continue reading »
