The Hype Box


This Issue of Gamespite Journal

Lately, things have been breaking down on me. My computer, the stopgap replacement for it, the stopgap replacement for THAT, my mouse, my webhosting setup, my general state of physical health... so yeah I've been in a page-neglecting funk. Sorry. I have been making an oldschool RPG you can play in your browser though, might want to check that out.

Also if you've missed it, here's a Let's Play Video of Hyperdimension Neptunia that I've somehow been working on despite all this other stuff going on. The audio quality and editing improve dramatically at part 13. Sorry, first time I ever did one, took a while to work the kinks out of the process.

As always, The Massive Vs. The Masses, Glistening Chests, and GSQ are what put food on the table, and this here Amazon Wishlist deal is a viable means of both supporting me and directly providing article fodder.
