Hey! Remember when this blog used to update every week and had fully written reviews? Neither do I!
I swear, if I had the power to stop time, or at least slow it down to half speed like in Majora's Mask, I'd be doing fully written reviews of all these comics. But as it is right now, I'm too overwhelmed with work to sit down and review the comics in depth, besides Blogger's system of editing fucking sucks. Say what you want about Tumblr's coding, but at least that's streamlined and simple enough that I don't need to refresh constantly if I want to embed a picture or make a sentence into a link.
Anyways, check the video reviews under the break, featuring Norman Sanzo, Silver Quill and myself! I hope you guys find them enjoyable and insightful.
