Is like ten lines of “SQUEEEEEEEE” not an appropriate conclusion post? No? Damn.
I think at this point it’s probably useful to think of Umineko relative to Higurashi, considering we’re at the beginning and I thought it was pretty clear R07 wrote this with a reader who’d just come from Higurashi in mind.

Let’s take a look at our large cast and what we got to know about them in the intro route.
09/02/2017 Act 24 Comments
There’s still some more extras that pop up after finishing the Tea Party.
08/26/2017 Act 7 Comments
Before we get into final thoughts, we have some extras to wrap up. This time, the OOC review session.
Books, Broken Earth broken earth series, nk jemisin, obelisk gate
08/26/2017 Act 41 Comments
This isn’t an actual review, just a WOOOO post to note that Obelisk Gate took the 2017 Hugo for best novel! It totally deserved it, this series may be the best trilogy I’ve ever read, it’s absolutely incredible, this is not an exaggeration. The final book, Stone Sky, just came out and was equally as good so seriously, go read them!
I look forward to Jemisin taking the 2018 Hugo for Stone Sky and giving her a three-year win streak. No contemporary writer deserves these accolades more.
Neckbeards must be losing their shit.

Last time, more deaths, but an odd implication of things reaching their end.
08/15/2017 Act 14 Comments
Last time, the deaths begin, and so does the suspicion.
Books, Recommendations and i darken, Kiersten White
08/12/2017 Act 28 Comments
And I Darken by Kiersten White is a really interesting piece of historical fiction, the central premise of which is that Vlad the Impaler is born female instead of male. It’s unfortunately somewhat undercut by the fact that the author just isn’t a great writer, but the social commentary is deliciously biting and it’s exceptionally well-researched, so as long as you’re not expecting to be at the edge of your seat I think it’s worth checking out just because it’s so no-holds-barred.

Last time, midnight passes with a whimper.
Books, Recommendations lagoon, nnedi okorafor
08/08/2017 Act 11 Comments
Continuing my adventures in Nnedi’s Okorafor’s catalogue, Lagoon. I’m happy to say that this one was absolutely incredible. Okorafor seems to be hit or miss, when when it’s a hit she’s just remarkable.
Books akata witch, nnedi okorafor
08/05/2017 Act 37 Comments
Akata Witch is Nnedi Okorafor’s stab at the ‘magic school’ subgenre, and unfortunately it’s kind of a mess. Like her other two books, it really shines in just how unique and exciting its ideas are, but the worldbuilding is nonexistent and I thought its messages ranged from muddled to bad.
08/04/2017 Act 38 Comments
Last time, a spoiled family gathers for a magic murdergame… I think.
08/01/2017 Act 25 Comments
Mr. Act sent me this interesting article today about men using female pseudonyms to sneak into detective fiction sales, and I have thoughts on the topic to inflict on you.
08/01/2017 Act 14 Comments
When people accuse the gaming community of being entitled pissbaby manchildren this is what they’re referring to.
These concerted hate campaigns against devs make me angry as a creator, reviewer, and consumer. They destroy the integrity of the review system, make it impossible for consumers to evaluate games, and hurt small developers.
I don’t have anything else useful to say, you’re my captive audience and I needed to vent. It just seems to be happening with more and more frequency and I wish there were steps Steam could take to stop it but I don’t think there are.
I cannot imagine how it is possible to exist with this level of entitlement. Fuck people who do this.
Unfortunately we’ve lost old likes (which is sad because I was really enjoying all that sweet, sweet internet validation lately), but on the bright side this one is less obtrusive and not affected by comment editing.
- Do we want a thumb or a heart
- Do we want upvotes and downvotes, or just upvotes? Leaning toward the latter since we’ve gotten downvote spammed in the past.
