Minecraft is for Measuring Autism and Was Created By Microsoft

I myself spent a long time in Minecraft, first making a standard castle complete with rooms tower stairs, a grand hall – I then moved on to making a city complete by leveling an island and making shopping and residential districts. I thankfully had enough clarity to look up and realize that months had passed and I should probably get on with passing college.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: The Martian and Why Terra Formars is Bad Sci-Fi

So I just finished reading a phenomenal novel called The Martian – to not give any spoilers it’s about a botanist/mechanical engineer who’s stranded on Mars. However one of the key elements that makes the book so great aside from how real and honest the characters are – is the pervading science which never feels preach-y or too exposition-y and more importantly drives the plot in a realistic way.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: D-Frag and Dialogue Has Too Much Power in Anime

There’s been a few seasons between D-Frag and now, and I find myself silently comparing similar animes to it that are releasing. This is odd because while I admit that it does do some visual comedy right, overall it wasn’t a great anime. I then realized it was doing something as equally powerful to set up it’s gag – it was blocking the character.

Writerscast Episode 42: Splinter Cast – With Hookers and Blow

Prior to this release of the podcast we actually had a lively discussion of forming our own cast of Myself, Kent, and Armen called #NerdfitSucksCast (we left the details edited out on the rare chance someone told Erik). But hey this is what happens when a podcast with a possible 5-10 or so people is just always down to the same 3, who just feel left out and become radicalized.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Bakemonogatari and Use Your Frame Cuts

Last week I talked about how anime is given the freedom to do as it pleases with camera shots, and too often just follows manga pacing for it’s cuts and scenes. This article then may seem contradictory – but hey you should try to think of these articles as rules to follow, and you can only break a rule with another rule. However it does lie at the same kind of problem – in that there is no innovation in what you use for a scene.

Smash Brothers is Nintendo’s Plan to Never Innovate and Take Over the World

Making video games is hard (trust me I know). Often times we get these massively hyped things from great studios (Watch Dogs, Titanfall, Destiny), but they just don’t sell well. Meanwhile constants like Call of Duty and Halo continue to do well – the problem therein is to find and create these franchises with these established characters that will be a guaranteed sell.

I Hope Nippon-sempai Notices Me: Panty and Stocking and the Long Take

Panty and Stocking was very crass, had some middling parts (I mean the bottle episode was torturous), but overall it had a nicely fresh plot and characters. The animation was sort of unhinged allowing itself to be fluid and change styles as needed. Seriously anything that’s willing to change an iconic scene and joke into a paper mache monster that explodes shows a certain kind of play and dedication in your project.

Writerscast Episode 41: I’m Very Sorry (But not to Jesus this time)

I want to formally apologize folks. I was supposed to post and edit this yesterday, but because of certain anime related events (the event was drinking and crying) I was unable to be on time for the podcast release. I am also sorry that anime is shittier than ever, and that I make us discuss Gamergate (read: hoax). I am also sorry that next week there won’t even be a cast as we could not record one.
