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 […]

Playing chess with cards

It wasn’t what I had planned for this month’s update, but here’s something: another chapter of that Zelda playthrough! What I had planned was a “some games I played in 2012” article, only this time I’d also be covering books, movies, TV shows and whatever else of interest. It got a bit hideously long and […]

The plot summary years in the making

Well, it’s been a while since that’s happened – there’s some updates! The Bomberman shrine has gotten some love – Bomberman II and Bomberman for PC Engine have been totally finished with more fleshed-out content. Saturn Bomberman has coverage for world 3 and the Master Game, though it’s all rather unfinished – I’m hoping to […]


What strange and startling developments have occurred in the life of Ragey over the past four months? Not much, really. Well, for starters, my feet have somehow been inflicted with every injury known to man – scrapes, bruises, blisters, cuts, everything short of frostbite, from the heel to the sides to the toes. And even […]


Today’s observation: Has anyone ever made a recipe for a meat pizza? I’m not talking like pizza with meat toppings on it – I’m talking like a hunk of meat, a pork chop or something, that you’d treat like a pizza. Slather the top of it in mozzarella cheese, tomato sauce, pepperoni, the works. Because, […]

My android’s head is an asshole!

I’ve actually watched a fair few movies in the past few months, but just haven’t had the interest or energy to review them – and also because who cares? (for those who do care, I aim to have one of those “Games I Played in 2012” articles by the end of the year and will […]

Dusty keys

We got ourselves a big ol’ Bomberman update; still not much in the way of groundbreaking new content, but personally, I’m just looking to spruce up the old content as best I can. Well, I’ve had my new computer for about three weeks now. It took a while to settle in, no thanks to me […]

An open letter to the spider on the washing line

You don’t need to put cobwebs on the clothes pegs. You don’t need to put any on my jeans, either. You don’t — look, no webs on the washing line, alright? It’s a good job you’re doing, and you seem like a really efficient worker, but it’s wasted out here. They’re mighty fine webs, but […]

“Oohh, this is candy, I’m having fun!”

While up in the Donegore garden centre, I discovered alongside pastiches of the “keep calm and carry on” posters, sentimental tea towels and other kitsch, boxes of Lucky Charms were being sold.

Drunken Irishman correctly predicts end of the world

Bomberman Fantasy Race has been ported to the new layout. Not much actually new, but you don’t have to look at that awful dark green tiled backdrop any more. Watched The Birds. A few days ago I’d caught that episode of The Simpsons that parodies it with the babies in the daycare centre, and figured, […]
