"Although Guillaume shouts obvious (yet weird) clues like 'Deathblow attack!!! Ominous oceans!!!' it takes a good twenty minutes for weakling Frodo to wipe out Guillaume, one tiny tick on that hellishly long life track at a time. I'm sure there's a person out there who has maxed Frodo to some unholy high level just so he can wipe out Guillaume in one turn. I just hope that person doesn't read this site and decide to email me and tell me all about it."

Happy 12th Birthday!

We made it! It’s finally here — VGR’s golden birthday! Now the site is officially as old as the sad 12-year-old recappers who write for it!

Thanks so much to my fellow recappers who have done such a fantastic job this year. Sam and Ben have done the brunt of the recapping work, and they are awesome. Speaking of which, they each have contributed a recap for the anniversary:

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Part 11 by Sam finishes up the first Anal Attorney game! Plus, it breaks the record for longest recap on the site. Seriously, look at it.

Final Fantasy IV Part 5 by Ben continues the poorly-translated adventures of the most resilient cast ever. These fuckers just don’t stay dead.

As for the site redesign, it is well underway, but isn’t quite ready yet. I’ve been toiling away, coding WordPress like a motherfuck PLUS transferring all 271 recaps into the system. I’m targeting this summer, barring any unforeseen issues. So stay tuned for that!

Thanks again for reading, and for continuing to support the site!

VGR Crossing

Hey y’all. I’m currently in the middle of yet another grueling Suikoden II double recap, which I was hoping to have done by the end of this month, but thanks to starting it way later than I should have, I’m totally not going to make it. So, ugh, bummer, it’ll be probably be done in August.

In the meantime, if you are not already, you should be following us on Twitter for, among other things, ANIMAL CROSSING ADVENTURES. I somehow suckered my fellow recappers into playing New Leaf, and it’s been a great time. Follow vgr_sam, vgr_jeanne, vgr_ben, and vgr_ryan to see what we’re up to in our respective towns. Spoiler: most of our neighbors are stalkers and/or pedophiles, and we’re putting penises on stuff.

And consider this an open thread for talking about AC:NL. Or whatever you want, really. Play anything good lately? Anybody else playing the Civ V: Brave New World?

Forum shutdown

Since the forums have been inactive for a long time, I’ve decided to shut them down. The server host is disabling all older databases next week, so I figured this is as good a time as any to officially archive them. I have the forums backed up, so nothing is really lost.

If you want to comment on the site or the recaps or ask us any questions, please use the blog comments. Thanks!

Happy 11th Birthday!

Holy crap, you guys, we are one year away from turning 12, which will be VGR’s…golden birthday or something. This has been a great year, because not only have there been a lot of new recaps, but Sam and I have also been planning some awesome stuff for this coming year. I won’t spoil it for you yet, and it’s totally not because this is a Larry Butz’s fake Canadian girlfriend situation. Stay tuned! And thanks so much for reading, those of you who have stuck around over the years.

So onto what we do have: four new recaps!
Wild Arms 3 Part 3 by Ben
Suikoden III Part 11 by Sam
Final Fantasy X-2 Part 9 by Sam
Skies of Arcadia Part 11 by Jeanne

Thanks so much to Ben and Sam for their awesome recaps!

And last but certainly not least, it’s time to unveil something new, that proves we haven’t just been slacking!

*drumroll*

The VGR Wiki!

This is mostly Sam’s project, and she’s done a great job. She has moved all of the cast pages onto the wiki, which will be their permanent home. Also, she has been working on adding a glossary of recap terms, relationships, and tropes for each recapped game (with some help from me, Ben, and Ryan). There are still some pages under construction, but there is still a lot of entertaining content to check out. Just one note — unlike other wikis, we aren’t allowing just anyone to edit at the moment. Partially because we’re control freaks and partially because there are assholes (not you guys) that would ruin things.

Enjoy the recaps and the wiki, and thanks again for reading!

Derp!

Okay, I was doing some routine site maintenance and clearing out spam and spam accounts, and it looks like I may have accidentally deleted some actual user accounts. And naturally, I didn’t bother to back up the database before any of this for I am awesome.

So if you are unable to log in with your credentials, it’s probably my fault, and you’ll need to re-register in order to comment. Sorry about that.
