Male-bag? Oh wait I already did that joke
07.01.2005 Update by MegamanX2K
Don't forget about the impending mailbag. Technically the deadline's due but I like to give those procrastinators in the audience a few extra days sometimes, and I usually like to update Sunday Night/Monday Morning anyway.
Oh, also I saw Revenge of the Sith finally so if you wanna talk about that in your entry that's fair game too.

Two new reviews for you (been a while, eh?). The first is of the anime Haibane Renmei, the second is Legend of Mana for PlayStation. Go take a gander if you're interested.
Mailbag! I mean, if you were observant enough...

...you probably noticed the Fanart Section hasn't been updated in a long *insert a word your mommy doesn't want you to use here* time. You probably haven't, but it doesn't matter because it's back now. I hope you miiiisssssed it. :D In any case, there are now a freaky whole lot of new pictures to look at. Just to name a few, there's art for FFX, Sweet Home, varied Zelda games, Bahamut Lagoon, Chrono Trigger, Tales of Symphonia, Star Ocean 1, 2 and 3, Suikoden IV, SMRPG, FFVII and more! I even was too lazy to enumerate the games in alphabetical order. I think you should celebrate this event by sending me new submissions!
Execute Order 67
07.04.2005 Update by MegamanX2K
Walhalla must not be allowed to escape alive.
Anyway, I forgot about the 4th of July, but just last night an online buddy invited me to his place for a little get-together, so I'll be staying the night there. So expect the mailbag to be updated Tuesday night at the earliest. Dumb for me not to give you guys the extra weekend in the first place.
So anyway, don't hesitate to write in! Topic's still on homosexuality and gender identity/stereotyping in games, as well as Battlefield 2 and Revenge of the Sith. At least 80% of you must have experienced one or the other so *waving hand in a jedi fashion* you have no excuses...you WILL write in.
And I fully expect Walhalla's head to be on a platter awaiting my return. Bonus points if you wire the head up so she stays alive like in the Ordos cutscenes from Emperor: Battle for Dune.
And trust me: You don't want to know what Order 69 is.
(P.S. KFC does NOT suck, Gila. Valk, get him.)

Sorry for those of you who were expecting the mailbag, and expecting it on time. I was expecting something, too, something which did not materialize. Something I was extremely excited about.
In short: This 4th of July SUCKED as a result. I was, to use metaphor that is eerily accurate, a girl stood up on prom night. And so, since then, and for the past week, I've been a mixture of anxiety and anger, in heaping amounts. If Sinistral were a girl and he was having his period, (well, HER period), it'd be something like this. So obviously I have been in NO mood to be funny or put effort into the mailbag. I'm hoping that the issue will get resolved by the beginning of next week, and hopefully I can put the mailbag up then. Good news for you procrastinators out there, I guess.
Gundam Manual Scans
07.10.2005 Update by RedComet
Take a walk over to the Cross Dimension 0079 shrine and download them today!
Also, Gundam fans might want to head on over to Twilight Translations and check out my list of projects. Check the forums, too. There's some stuff there that you might like. As for Twilight Translations, expect a release (maybe even two or three!) in the near future!
07.16.2005 Update by Walhalla
New submissions for Final Fantasy VII/IX, Star Ocean 1/3 and the humorous Mario RPGs are waiting for you in the Fanart Section. Thanks, everyone! Well, those who sent something, obviously.
108 Airy Stars
07.17.2005 Update by Cidolfas
I barreled through two quickies and quickly wrote up two quick reviews for you. The first is of a brand-new anime called Air, the second of a really old game called Suikoden. I experimented here: Air is the first page in my anime reviews to get its own subpage, and both new pages have screenshots. I'd love to update all the old pages with screenshots, but it'll take ages. -_- Maybe if you're lucky. 8-) In any case, as usual, I implore you to take a look-see.
The Bag has hit the fan
07.20.2005 Update by MegamanX2K
Mailbag's FINALLY up. Sorry it took so long, guys, and sorry if it's a bit more serious (translation: less funny) than it usually is. Thanks to StarStorm for hunting down the Mr. Saturn font, by the way.
Anyway, you've got another Free For All, so don't shy away! Write in today!
Game Reviews at RPG Classics.
07.28.2005 Update by Sephiroth Katana
The review section has been reorganized somewhat. Now, you can find my Capsule Reviews, as well as Cidolfas' RPG reviews, at Game Reviews at RPG Classics. However, our reviews are still organized separately from one another, to preserve the individual style of each section, and we will continue to write independently.
Note that our Reader Reviews are now accessible from the main page of Game Reviews. A new reader review by Skankin' Garbage has been added to this section, and we encourage our readers to submit their own writing.
Fanart + Anime
07.31.2005 Update by Walhalla
Yeah, I'm sorry for my really bad update titles... I'm better at other things. You can admire the new submissions at the same place as always. Be informed that you can now send me Anime fanart too. Rejoice, because who hasn't tried to draw anime art at least once in their life here? Probably quite a few people, but that's beside the point. :P
