Taking a dip in the protoculture

Halfway through writing this post for Robotech Invasion, Harmony Gold, the company that owns the rights to Robotech, launched a Kickstarter campaign for a new animated series. It's exciting to think there is a chance for a new series. Robotech the animated series was one of, if not the first, successfully ported anime from Japan and near and dear to my heart. It was in my early childhood when I first saw it on TV, very early in the morning. All it took was a glimpse of the mecha and I was hooked. Flash forward 30+ years, here I am probably the only person playing through Robotech Invasion on the PS2 recently.

Sum and Substance

Before you is the first post in new series, a format of indefinite length and regularity called Sum and Substance. It's and attempt to catalog games and “gamerly” things I’ve been up to between posts. To capture some of the things slipping away in this fast-paced, ever-changing hobby.

Late to the Party

In this awkward time of the new-Next Gen, with the looming game expo of the year around the corner, you might think I’d be playing the latest and greatest game titles right now. I’m not. I’ve been in a funk lately, not responding well to some of the best “AAA” games I’ve played. I’m also getting tired of the so-called indie games for the Next/Current Gen systems. Without even knowing it I think I was looking for something simpler and more fun to get into, then, as if the by the grace of the Gods, God of War lands at my feet.
