More talkin’ ’bout manga peeps won’t care about

I don’t want to make this a routine, but you might have guessed (because I’ve become incredibly predictable ever since I exchanged my personality for nerd-ass obsessions) I bought another Japanese gaming magazine for the sole Bomberman comic in it: the August 2007 issue of Fami2Comic. It’s kind of interesting comparing this to the Dengeki […]

Talkin’ ’bout manga peeps don’t know about

I’ve been buying an obscene amount of crap from Japan the past few months. Most of it is “research material” (Bomberman books, natch), but I also pick up toys, manga, magazines and other doodads; whatever I can get away with saying “it’s for the website, honest!” Some of the most interesting buys are magazines, if […]

ONM Remembered is OVER!!!

Over five hundred entries over the course of nearly five years. I, uh, honestly wasn’t expecting this silly little column to run for that long! Somebody should probably have intervened. Like I said all the way at the beginning, the idea to scan these came about as a first step to finally chucking the old […]

Some games I played in 2016

Wow, I’m punctual for once in my life! I admit after 2015 (which should be finished sometime soon-ish) I realised I’m running out of opinions even I could be bothered reading, so I figured a blog post with a few lines for each game would be enough. If there’s a game I really need to […]

Blast away and go, go, go!

Cramming it in before the new year, it’s a new Metal Slug: Missing in Action update! The real meat and potatoes is the overhauled concept art coverage, now serving as an art gallery for each game and sporting translations for a number of pieces, revealing factoids English fans otherwise never knew about. Or at least, […]

Can you escape from Robotnik’s island of traps?

Here’s a pile of stuff – so much stuff I’m going to bust out some bulletpoints! It’s probably unnecessary, but what the heck! The Legend of Zelda playthrough is finally finished! Well, I completed the game last year and only wrote a conclusion this week. I’m bad at being punctual. Some Games I Played In […]

All I know is my own existence.

There’s a few small pokey updates for the Bomberman Shrine and Metal Slug: Missing in Action. Don’t mind me, I’m just chucking up updates when I feel I’ve noodled long enough on something. I’m still otherwise farting about like I usually do!

Please consume my wares.

Chucking up some game reviews because it’s been a while since I’ve used the blog for bloggin’! That and I forgot how bare some of the ONM Remembered entries were. I finally began to highlight images without commentary to spare myself the trouble and hope it’d give the image some time to be appreciated… but […]

“Well he’s had his ups, he’s had his downs, he’s had his smiles, he’s had his frowns…”

ONM Remembered’s up and running and will run on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Updates will come when I’ve got something to update with! I usually post something about potentially upcoming whatnots on Twitter, which is currently more Bomberman guff, animated Bomberman guff, old anime flicks and usually a botched joke I’ll delete in ten minutes […]

Indy Bomber and the Ring of Wishes

Splurge! Metal Slug: Missing in Action’s got some relics from the first game’s development, plus some unfinished areas from Metal Slug 7. The Bomberman shrine has coverage for GB 2 and the DS game. As for Random Hoo Haas, there’s the penultimate chapter of the Zelda playthrough, and some waffling about the rest of the […]

Give a squid a home

No cash prize to hand out, I’m afraid – I went and found the unused Metal Slug Advance areas myself. There’s still a debug menu and a Slug Mariner to find, though, so if anyone in the audience has the hacking chops to find them, what are you waiting for?! The past couple of weeks […]

Super Marco Brothers

Metal Slug: Missing in Action finally saw an update after five years! Don’t get your hopes up, though – although a debug menu in MS6 was discovered, it’s not hiding anything wild or exciting. I’m still holding out for a debug menu in Metal Slug Advance to be unearthed, and I am seriously tempted to […]

I spent ten minutes trying to think of a post title (and all I got was this lousy update)

Logged a couple of more chapters into the Legend of Zelda playthrough. I’ve finished the game already, so the final chapters are just awaiting a write-up. Expect to see them… sometime! So, Random Hoo Haas turned ten years old a couple of months ago. I’m still not sure what to think about that! To be […]

“It is face astringent juice with two people”

An update, huh? It’s been a while since we had one of those! Because one person said they wanted to see more of them, I finished translating four more Otimusya pages (F-Zero, Wolfenstein 3D, Final Fight* and Hokuto no Ken) and two more chapters of the Zelda playthrough. And because nobody asked for them, there’s […]

History trembles with unbearable anger

So, how about that F-Zero: Falcon Densetsu, huh? Its coverage finished on Random Action Hour way back in April, if you missed it! It got a hastily-made characters page and everything! I got around six emails during that period about what people want to see on Random Action Hour, which was actually pretty nifty! It’s […]

“What? Corny? My clothes? You need a lesson!”

It’s a pity to lose one of my favourite running gags, but it had to happen sometime – the Puchi Carat shrine has finally gotten updated! There’s newly translated information for each of the characters, a lot more research into the game pages, plus a big dumb wiki-like glossary page that involved less writing and […]

Use your heart and Boost Fire!

The next four episodes of F-Zero: The Legend of Falcon are up! Because I’m a sucker for schedules (and stressing over deadlines) there’ll be three to four new episodes every Wednesday and Sunday. If I find the time I’d love to write some thoughts on the series, but since I’m still in the middle of […]

To be continued… Push Start!

Would you believe it if I told you Random Action Hour finally saw a new update with brand new coverage? (if you said no then hoo boy i hear ya, i forgot how badly written a lot of that site is. i literally have no idea how anyone understood my transformers season 4 write-ups) Yeah, […]

Status report!

It’s been eight months since I post anything, and when I do it’s two years out of date. I guess I’m overdue a little explain-yourself, huh?

Two (and a bit) years in the making…

Out of the primordial sludge comes something foul; something depraved; something no man ever dared to see again on this earth… … a new Random Hoo Haas update!? Yeah, erm, this took way longer than it should half. There’s a couple of new Games I Own reviews, and a brand new General Writing all about […]
