9:29 pm - Phoenix Wright Part 1 recap!

You guys! Long time no post! I'm finally knocking items off my to-do list, including getting the site back on track. In keeping with that, I have just posted the latest recap: Phoenix Wright Part 1. This game is just so adorably gay that Sam and I could not resist yet another tag team recap.

3:07 am - Don't make me sue you for libel


Guys, I know maybe it's too much to ask, but could your website stop making fun of me already?

I mean, you've been doing it for over five years! And you finished recapping my game three years ago. And I'm dead in the sequel.

Okay, so Auron was dead for most of his screentime. THAT'S NOT THE POINT!

Go make fun of Vaan or something! At least my abs don't look pastede on yay.

current mood: wanky

Congratulations to our new recapper, Mr. Ted Roberts! I give you an icon of lesbian Japanese schoolgirls to conmemorate your hiring, even though you probably see the real deal every day.

1:50 am - Happy 5th Birthday to VGR!

It's time for my, like, yearly post on here. *sigh*

As always, thanks to all the readers and contributors. Your support is much appreciated even though this year has been kind of slow for us.

To make up for that a little -- I hope -- here are some new recaps in honor of our 5 year anniversary:

Silent Hill Part 3
Cockarina of Time Part 3

11:41 am - Forums restored!

Just letting you guys know that I restored the forums and took some precautions that will hopefully prevent us from being hacked in the future. Read the announcement on the forums for more info.

Just an update. No, the hackers didn't shut down the forums, I did. I figured it would save us the time and trouble of cleaning up after them.

Okay, so I can't exactly go in and back up the database to get the forums running again, but at least we don't have to look at the idiot T3H 1337 HAx0RZ!1! anymore. I'll be keeping an eye on the forums until Jeanne gets back from vacation in case they come back.

5:17 pm - Another hacking... :'(

Forums are hacked again.

This time is from some community that ONLY has two members in its userbase.

So what are everybody plans for the Holiday break?

6:54 pm - Hacked :(

Forum's been hacked again, though I don't think it's really all that bad. All that's technically down is the index page. I believe all the individual forums themselves are still up and running like so. You just can only navigate by the drop down box. So I think we can all still keep posting.

Hope everything gets fixed soon. :)

11:20 am - Wind Wanker Retrospective Preview

This is long overdue, but I'm finally nearly done with this feature. Here are a few choice quotes to tide you over in the meantime.

(From the description for Part 4 of the recap)
In which Jeanne guides Twink through the forest-themed collection of islands. Given the theme, and that trees are made of wood, there’s a veritable plethora of penile references in the recap, along with references to evil, soul-swallowing vaginas. As a result, reading this recap is proven to make anyone 12.

(From the interview with Jeanne and Sam)
QF: I mean, it wouldn't be a Wind Wanker without something to the tune of "Why all the penises?"
Sam: And us going, "Because we're NOT blind."
QF: "Squally... gay? You're totally making this up!"
Jeanne: I actually had that argument with a friend of a friend a couple of weeks ago.
Jeanne: Yeah, I don't know either.

1:41 am - Query

As yon Cockarina recap may have shown, at least two THREE of the recappers (and myself) really, REALLY dislike spiders.

How many others here hate them too? I'm actually curious.

6:42 pm - Prince of Falena: Gay or nay?

Judging by the comments on the previous post, a fair amount of members here have played and enjoyed Suikoden V. Given that, and the VGR standing on the series (When I think of Suikoden, I think of fifty gay guys standing in a burned-down village and groping each other), where in the Kinsey scale would you place the Prince of Falena?

Because, while I'll agree with the recaps that PUGGY!!!, Barry and Marvy bat for the home team, the Prince strikes as being into women. Which is really funny, seeing how he's the girliest hero in the franchise.

12:21 pm - VG-related query

I suppose most of you have played through Kingdom Hearts 2 and Suikoden V. As is common knowledge, both games have prologues that can best be described as "long-ass". It's also a fair bet that FFXII will have a lengthy prologue (there's the 7-minute opening FMV, the tutorial with Vann's brother and who knows what else).

Given this, what's your take on the genre's - and gaming's in general - tendency towards making intros longer? When do these things irritate you and when do they not?
