    Unfinished Business in Bethesda Games: Should the Mods make the games better?

    In light of the release of Fallout 4 and the subsequent Game of the Year Award loss to The Witcher 3, message boards have exploded into wars over the quality of Bethesda’s recent post-apocalyptic RPG. One of the largest and most frequent complaints for any Bethesda game is release content and stability – is a game devoid of the life that mods bring and running on a temperamental engine really worthy of the acclaim it receives?

      What about Mobile Suit Gundam and its derivatives? There is a lot the mecha genre can offer… Neon Genesis Evangelion, Gundam (both Universal Century and alternate universe (particularly with the (finally!) American release of Turn-A)), Gurren Lagann, The Big O, Eureka 7…

      Anime for Dummies: What Starters Should Watch

      I’d like to preface this comment by first say that I have watched the Splat and have thoroughly enjoyed it. But I always finish watching feeling somewhat melancholic… like I was just emotionally manipulated by a television. And worst of all, that manipulation was easy. That is not to say I don’t enjoy a good tug on the heart strings or situation that makes my stomach sink (certain scenes from “Breaking Bad” come to mind), but rather this re-airing of old material, cheaply as you mention, to appeal to those that grew up in the 90’s just seem like laziness that banks on millennial longing. I’m not saying it’s not a brilliant marketing move, because it is and I am glad that shows I loved are being re-aired, but I feel like it’s enforcing this creative vacuum, as more and more mediums are resorting to either re-airing or re-making “classic” franchises…long story short, I guess what I’m saying is, I’d rather see a new show that captures the essence and magic of Rocco’s Modern Life without digging up its grave. Maybe I’m picky or hard to please, but half the joy of getting older is the Christmas-like moment when you happen to catch some obscure reference or glimpse at a childhood memory, be it an old show or commercial. Like a heartfelt minute as you set things out for a rummage sale – this feels like Mom pulling all the old sterilite containers out of the attic, showing you your baby toys, and then pitching them in the bin.
      Maybe a bit drastic, but you get my point

      Nickelodeon’s The Splat: Bringing Back Classic Content for Millennials

      I very much enjoyed this article, particularly your evaluation of the game as more of a work of art than an exercise in graphical limitations. One of the appeals of revisiting the game (even if other Zelda games have done what it attempted better) is it’s role in the history of the Zelda universe – or rather, the timeline that encapsulates the cycle of rebirth and success/failure of the Hero of Time. But I feel that if you enjoy the franchise, it is a game worth playing
