Dying at Anime Expo 2017 aka “LineCon 2017”

anime expo 2017

I have a love/hate relationship with Anime Expo, and this year wasn't any different. It's one of the biggest anime conventions, which means it's the one con where I'll see many of my friends. However, that also means having to navigate through overly-crowded halls and excruciatingly long lines. Admittedly, I usually spend most of Anime Expo … Continue reading Dying at Anime Expo 2017 aka “LineCon 2017”

In a futuristic world where individuals are separated as "Naturals" and "Synthates," Matthew B. J. Delaney's Black Rain examines the subject of human cruelty. Naturals are human beings just like you and I, while Synthates are artificially synthesized humans created by us.

Don’t Play “Resident Evil 7: Biohazard” Alone

The last couple installments in the Resident Evil franchise seemed like a departure from the horror survival games that were first introduced by Capcom in 1996. But gamers were captivated by the Silent Hills P.T. that was released in 2014. Gamers thirsted for the first-person horror game, with its disturbing imagery and jump scares.

But with so many peoplerecently spazzing over Mystic Messenger, I gave in and sampled one. If you're wondering what otome games are, they're basically a dating sim game. They're visual novel games typically targeted towards … Continue reading My First Otome Game: Lust in Terror Manor
