Industry news features news about Steam’s downfall, and the New Game! Mangaka choosing not to write back to fans anymore.

  1. Armed Forces Day: Active members

    Veterans Day: Prior Service/Retired

    Memorial Day: Died while in service

    All distrinct days. Memorial day the most important by far. Important to know that one is separate.
    The Scot I get not knowing. But “Fireworks Day pt 2″…. Yikes.

    1. Thanks, Paltir, for setting the facts straight on this. If you hadn’t I would have. Much appreciated.

  2. Ramdom Game Theory reference! I only expect that on VG Pulse. I think that MatPat is at his best when he’s doing FNaF Game Theories. Too bad that FNaF games aren’t coming out once a year.

    1. Yup I agree, when he’s putting together facts that’s more concrete like the breadcrumbs left in FNAF, then he does decently well, but when tackling purely lore based theories he’s often under researched e.g Persona 4, Phoenix Wright, Undertale. Don’t care much for the demeanor either but that’s a taste thing.

  3. I could’ve sworn you already reviewed Killing Bites. o.o Guess I must’ve confused you with some other anime podcast.

    It was a fine dumb action show and I really liked it for not trying to be anything more than that. I wish the action had been smoother and more dynamic though. Would’ve added a lot the fights themselves, which ended up being full of the usual still frames and flashes of light that anime likes to use to simulate action.
    Imagine if they’d been able to give Killing Bites the Unlimited Blade Works treatment. Man, that would’ve been awesome. Speaking of Fate, wonder how long until someone realizes Killing Bites is perfect for a Gacha game.
