Anime Impressions: “Haikyuu!!” – 3 Seasons

Generally, I do not watch sports anime at all (not interested in the sports and often they are far too much over the top, like Prince of Tennis). But friends convinced me to give this series a chance, which turned out to be a good choice. A while back we finished watching the third season…

Kickstarter Experiences – Crayon Chronicles

Let’s have a look at one of the smallest campaigns I supported in my Kickstarter list. Crayon Chronicles is number 41 and ran from the 6th of March, 2013 to the 1st of April, 2013. So that’s just a bit longer than a year after the Double Fine Adventure Kickstarter. As a short description of…

Classic Comics – Transformers G1 UK #13

Title: The Enemy Within! Original Release Date: March 9th, 1985 When did I first read it: Some years ago when I was catching up on the old comics Cover We see Brawn attacking Sideswipe, with Jazz and Sunstreaker standing in the background, looking shocked. True to form, the cover is just a colored version of…

Observations on GOG Diablo

So, now that Diablo is available on GOG, I played it a while and have noticed a few things. The game does seem to run well, though I think the windowed mode is a bit inconvenient, as you can’t move it around. I prefer to play some games like this in a smaller window and…

Stay awhile and… buy Diablo on GOG?!

Well this one came unexpected… GOG and Blizzard have partnered up and for their first game released Diablo exclusively on GOG (news item on GOG) I still remember playing the game originally on my 486 back in the days… even though the hardware requirements stated a Pentium. (To be fair, they were right on that,…

A closer look: Stonekeep (1995)

Several years after originally playing this game, I finally managed to have another go and complete it. Don’t even remember why I stopped playing it back then, to be honest. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t a lack of enjoying the game. So, after having finally beat it, I think I’ll collect some of my thoughts…

Gaming Memories: Game Gear Games

From other posts you might already know that the Sega Game Gear was the first gaming system I owned (got it as a christmas present). And I also wrote 2 separate posts on games that I had for it (Castle of Illusion and Dragon Crystal). But since I don’t really have some big story for…

History of a Transformers Fan – Part 2

The previous post ended with me watching the first season of the Beast Wars series on TV, which reignited my interest in the franchise. This was around 98/99 (the series only started airing in 98 here in Germany, 2 years after it was originally released) and stores here at the time had “Robots in Disguise”…

Backlog Battle: Tower 57 (2017)

Well my second go at the twin-stick shooter genre at least went better than the last one (with Helldivers). Tower 57 is a Kickstarter-financed 2D-Pixel-art twin-stick shooter with an actual single-player campaign. But does that mean that I like it? Let’s see… Better first Impression Tower 57 has several nice aspects to it that I…

Anime Impressions: “Black Clover” – NOPE’d outta there

Well this doesn’t happen often… but I actually quit watching this anime right after the first episode because I just couldn’t stand one of the characters. It’s really kind of a shame, because I found the premise of the series pretty interesting, at least judging by the first episode. The animation was fine as well….
