Smash Talk! Ep. 3 - Thoughts About the Nov. Smash Direct Smash Talk! Ep. 3 - Thoughts About the Nov. Smash Direct

Episode 3: Welcome to another edition of “Smash Talk!,” my semi-regular series for all things Super Smash Bros. related. I say semi-regular, because I just realized today we are one month away from the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and I’ve only posted twice since the game was shown off in full back in June.…

Aether's Favorite Anisongs from Spring 2018 - Extremely Late Edition Aether's Favorite Anisongs from Spring 2018 - Extremely Late Edition

It’s hard to believe it has been about five months since I wrote my first post highlighting my favorite anisongs of last season. A lot has happened since then and have been spending most of last month catching up last season and keeping up with the latest simuldubs this season. I took a leap of faith on VRV last month…

Dark Aether Invades Anime Expo 2018! (Prologue and Day 1) Dark Aether Invades Anime Expo 2018! (Prologue and Day 1)

After some inspiration hit me last year, I made the decision to finally do something I’ve been wanting to do for years now.

WarioWare Gold Features Fully Voiced Dialogue, Including Your Own! WarioWare Gold Features Fully Voiced Dialogue, Including Your Own!

From Fire Emblem to The Legend of Zelda, it seems Nintendo has been utilizing more and more voiceover work lately with some of their most recent games. With Super Mario Odyssey largely speaking in gibberish apart from a few spoken lines (and tunes), I took it as a sign that the Mario franchise and its extended family…

Smash Talk! Ep. 1: Here Comes a New Challenger! (Update) Smash Talk! Ep. 1: Here Comes a New Challenger! (Update)

Welcome to the first episode of an ongoing series that I am hoping to get running, talking about all things Super Smash Bros., leading up to the game’s eventual release (TBD). My goal is to do at least 8 of these by the time the game launches, or by year’s end assuming the game is still on schedule to release 2018.…

E3 doesn’t officially begin until next week (unless you own a time machine), but the announcements are already underway. With the first round of conferences scheduled for this weekend, I wanted to briefly share my thoughts on what my what I want out from each conference, what my dream E3 would like (no…
