Spring 2018 Anime Season is Out of Control

The Spring 2018 Anime Season is less than a month away. Let's take a look at a few titles that stuck out. This is my first new season since I've started watching anime again, it does it not disappoint. Well...mostly. As long as Golden Kamui is good I'll be happy.

Flyhunter Origins May Only Cost $7 on the Vita, but the Self-Reflecting It Made Me Do Is Priceless

The last thing I expected to do when reviewing an “only okay” game about an intergalactic janitor/flyhunter was reflect on my life.

Is The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening Still Relevant?

If it wasn’t for the fact that A Link Between Worlds was a perfect game, I would’ve given up on The Legend of Zelda.
