What to Expect…

Capsule of Curiousities:…

Inside the all-encompassing laboratory for capitalist media experimentation, no prospect holds a futuristic glint quite like the ability for a celebrity to upload their likeness in full to the digital realm, the chance for a figure to embolden a B-list IP with their ever marketable presence despite how superfluous…

Asagao Academy

564
Yeah, I’ll say it. I unironically adored Asagao Academy when it first came out. I played it on warm summer mornings, not long after I finished my junior year of high school. The music was perfect, the prose was gorgeous, and there was nothing I’d rather be doing while I waited…

Auto-runners are in need of a dire switch-up. Forget running to the left or straight ahead for eternity in the hopes of attaining a meaningless score or killing time. Let that score have purpose! Let it have a rewarding challenge and structure. I’m rambling again, but nevertheless, let’s talk…
