I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: S2 and Why it’s More Like Movie Sequels Instead of Multiple Seasons

There’s something that’s been percolating in my mind. With a lot of truly good American television it’s actually quite rare that the first season of the show is considered the best. In truth many feel that the 2nd and 3rd are better as the show begins to really find it’s footing. Compare this to anime, where if a show is broken into multiple seasons – it often feels more like with each season the show is just worse and worse.

Konami Doesn’t Want You to Know the Bermuda Triangle is Silent Hill

Or more accurately one of many Silent Hills. Following up on the last time we spoke about the enigmatic dimensional traveler Hideo Kojima. We come to the present where Konami has actually canceled Silent Hills. This comes right after I oust Kojima, and begin to unravel the secret of Silent Hills – a fact that is clearly not coincidence. The truth is out there and the basis of the theory is sound. Essentially a Silent Hill is a space where the rules stop being applied, where nightmares can become reality, where fear and pride and our sins can manifest, which Konami is trying to cover up.

Despite that many of these remakes can fix the 90’s vibe many of them carried, it’s rare that the remake is superior to the original. This however is different in anime where most remakes are usually much better – which doesn’t make sense at first.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Wind Waker and Anime is Forcing Anti-Isolation

I know this is my anime column (I swear I’m not mixing it up just because I switch off every week now), but something that’s striking in video games like Shadow of the Colossus and Wind Waker is that overall feeling of isolation. Not that the world us empty (my parallels to The Last Man on Earth are coincidental), but that an overall feeling of isolation is a good thing.

Star Citizen Will Never Come out Because No Man’s Sky is an Illuminati Plot

Star Citizen has recently become one of the main reasons why crowdfunded projects can be seen not as heaven-sent messages of hope for games, but a reminder the dark side of all humans (doubly those in software development). Despite having massive success, and the release of a mod or feature – there is as of yet no core game, especially not what was promised.
