From top to bottom: the composer for the Luftrausers soundtrack, dude A from Luftrausers developer Vlambeer, dude B from Vlambeer (plus the greatest reply), and one of Kotaku’s writers.

So THAT explains some of that serious video growth action on the JAMRAUSERS mashup: it got the positive attention of THE PEOPLE RESPONSIBLE FOR MAKING LUFTRAUSERS. On the biggest and most happiness-inducing note, INCLUDING THE SOUNDTRACK COMPOSER!! My God, senpai noticed meeee T-T

And from the looks of things, it also seemed to snowball into a sort of phenomenon amongst a set of indie video game developers on Twitter. My efforts not just got any audience, but an audience containing a bunch of people in the industry. HOLY SHIT.

I’m extremely humbled. Guess I must have done something right.

At some time between yesterday and today, my little Luftrausers-Space Jam mashup got a massive spike in views, thus making it the most-viewed thing I’ve made on this channel project.

Not that 802 views is objectively that much, but for such a minuscule speck of YouTube real estate, this is pretty huge. And look! A few people even decided to comment, and it seems they love it!

Considering that this was something in which I poured a fair amount of effort, craft, and passion into, yes, PLEASE DO take the top spot from a damn unboxing video! Overall, this makes me immensely happy.

Barakamon needs second season :o

Ahmed Angel, the internet’s most wonderful narcissist. These pics were taken from his Facebook page (he uploaded them himself) and they range from cringeworthy to hilarious. More here.

Also, through the Power of Randomly Remembering that it came out months earlier, I finally watched the Anzio battle OVA for Girls und Panzer.
After seeing it, the most pressing question at the moment: WTF YUKARI WHAT ARE YOU DOING??!

CONFESSION: for the longest time, I’ve never played any version of Quake

But that changed earlier today.

Quake got brought to Steam very recently in the form of Quake Live, and because it’s somehow offered for the bargain price of free, I was like “SCREW IT”, downloaded it, and played about a couple hours’ worth thus far.

Granted, it’s only been in a bunch of bot practice matches—I’ve not played against human opponents yet, and with my general gaming skill level and ESPECIALLY my (lack of) FPS chops I won’t be sad if I never do—but HOLY FUCKING FUCK Quake Live is HUUUUGE amounts of fun!!! It’s been a looonng while since any game gave me such a sustained adrenaline rush.

Methinks I’ve found yet another worthwhile time waster. :3

How long is my viewing backlog??? Let us see.

What I’ve gotta start or catch back up on soon from this season or the season before:

  • Gekkan Shojo Nozaki-kun
  • Zankyou no Terror
  • Barakamon
  • Ping Pong: The Animation
  • Ao Haru Ride
  • RWBY
  • Gunslinger Girl: Il Teatrino
  • Short Peace
  • Hal

Then there’s about a couple that I’d wanna experiment with for an episode or two:

  • Sabagebu! (Survival Game Club)
  • Knights of Sidonia
  • Log Horizon (to see if it’s worth keeping up with season two. Whoops, how did I forget to add this the first time, haha)

And finally, the Utterly Insurmountable Ones:

  • Space Brothers
  • Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure

…this is going to take a while.
