Persona 4 Story Review!

It’s certainly been awhile, but our latest story review video is up! And it covers one of our favorite game stories ever: PERSONA 4.


Third Katsucon Showcase Video!

First off I’d like to give a big thanks to Spazzerbot Cosplay for her wonderful work as the Journey cosplayer in this video. Not only was her outfit incredible but she gladly marched off into the snow with me to film “on location”. Like last year’s Ico shoot, filming outside allowed for some great backgrounds that evoked the game world. In this case…the snowy mountain ending of Journey.

Of course thanks to all the other cosplayers that came together for this. Entire Chrono Trigger cast amiright?!

This one took awhile to edit. Mostly because I thought I wouldn’t have enough footage to fill the whole song. But then I ended up finding enough…for two songs. Thus let the slow paced DRAMA and incredible dancing begin.

Guess I’ll start work on the review video now…


Anime Contents Expo 2013

Podcasts are still on hold for awhile but Lost Link did have time to stop by a convention in Chiba to film some Japanese cosplayers. Enjoy!

Musings of Mudora – VI: Arcana

fool

I am the Fool. I blend into the crowds. In high school I spent my lunches and spare periods playing cards in the cafeteria, gaming in the computer lab and hanging out with the smokers in the parking lot. Each area belonged to a certain type of crowd. I was welcomed into each but belonged to none. After school I played basketball or drums in the band. I waited for Mark to finish his shift in the grocery department and held Amy’s bags as she shopped for clothes. In the evenings I watched game shows with my little cousin and discussed the news with my uncle. I remember, one afternoon, during the shuffling between classes, I was stopped by Spencer, one of my school’s notorious “tough-guys”. For a moment he just stared at me, saying nothing.
