Take a step back sometimes

The Metal Gear Rising review I’m still working on has few surprising challenges; on one hand I  have a lot of stuff I should put in the review, but on the other hand all that stuff is more or less subjective from my point of view. I don’t want to treat my readers as mindless … Continue reading Take a step back sometimes

Sometimes a service provider takes it to their heart

When a service provider takes critique with a positive attitude, you know that these people care for what they’re doing. My critique is in most cases a bit too extreme and that’s mostly the point, as I wish to showcase mostly opposite views while exploring other possibilities within certain limits. Often I look back at … Continue reading Sometimes a service provider takes it to their heart

Take on design

There are few questions that I do ask myself on a daily basis. Questions like what does a designer do, what is a designer’s job, what is design… that kind of questions. They’re not out of place, as if I just start seeing them as something obvious, I’ll fail my customers. Yes, customers are half of … Continue reading Take on design

Let’s take a look at OVAs Part 2; The Couragous and the Pretty

There’s few frameworks that we have to lay down before we start speaking of good OVAs. I’m mostly speaking of same things as every other person when it comes to good animation and storytelling, but when it comes to OVAs we have the luxury of observing the coda, execution and uniqueness as well. TV-animation is … Continue reading Let’s take a look at OVAs Part 2; The Couragous and the Pretty

Customers can be stupid too

I’ve decided that every hundred posts or so I’ll dwell into countering matter that I usually discuss. Normally you’d read me ranting about the service providers sucking at what they’re doing (like what Sony &co. are doing) but I really want to tell you that the customer base they have can be just as stupid … Continue reading Customers can be stupid too

Let’s take a look at E3

I’ve been quite busy lately with all sorts of work from crafts to writing. I wasn’t on the E3 train like I’ve been in the past, and perhaps it was for the better. Let’s take a look at the Big Three and their presentations. However, let’s take a look at the E3 2006. The Wii … Continue reading Let’s take a look at E3

How not to treat your customers; BlazBlue

Seeing that it took ArcSys a long time to notice that the Guilty Gear fandom didn’t really continue onwards to BlazBlue, they finally decided to port GG Accent Core Plus. However, they can just blame themselves, or Daisuke Ishiwatari, who said in an interview that Guilty Gear fans are too old for video games. Fighting … Continue reading How not to treat your customers; BlazBlue

Games for girls, or how the industry just doesn’t get its customers

Those who have been following the game industry during the last ten years or less shouldn’t slowly realize one thing; modern games are soulless pieces of software engineering, that are void of content and proper value. Coincidentally, most games aimed at female audience are just that. Note that I’m using the word game in its … Continue reading Games for girls, or how the industry just doesn’t get its customers

Music of the Month; To Fly Through Fire

It’s one of those months for sure I recommend people to carry some sort of pocket knife with them. Not in order to do violence, but to have a tool with utility. There are times when in an emergency arises and having something sharp and multiuse comes in handy. Like when your work clothes catch … Continue reading Music of the Month; To Fly Through Fire
