"The buildings in Timber look rather old-fashioned, with curved ornamentation and old style lettering. Old school fanboys everywhere swoon, even though they think this game is Satan."

A few quick updates

Hello, everyone. I’m just writing a quick post to let you know a few things that are going on.

I mentioned something way back in the site anniversary update about a super awesome plan for this coming year, which is technically not over until 2/17/2014. So I still have a couple of months! The plan is to completely update the site, getting rid of the old shitty HTML, and converting everything over to WordPress. This will make it much, much easier to maintain. But it’s going to take a long time to do all the WordPress coding, site design, and recap conversion.

I’m currently working on the next Phoenix Wright recap, which is about 80% done. I’m hoping to finish it by Christmas. Once I post it, I’m going to concentrate on the site update for a while. So that I’m not totally slacking on actual content during that time, I’ve decided to revive the Recapper Roleplay posts, which are way less time consuming than the crazy long recaps I normally write. I know Oblivion is super old now — even Skyrim is two years old! — but I actually think the various guild quests are more entertaining in Oblivion than in Skyrim so I want to continue it. Maybe I will recapper roleplay both! No promises.

Finally, I am going to update WordPress to the latest version. Hopefully I won’t ruin everything! Update: Done!

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!

Database and WordPress updates in progress

I need to upgrade the site database as well as the WordPress installation. This is just a heads-up in case I screw something up. In which case you might not even be able to see this page. Crap!

Update: Everything should be done and hopefully working again. Please let me know if you notice anything strange with the site or the blog, apart from the stuff that is strange on purpose.

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!

Suikoden II Part 12

Sam is on a motherfreakin’ roll. Suikoden II Part 12 is available for your reading pleasure.

In other news, I’ve added a Twitter sidebar widget so you can read all the random shit we have to say in 140 characters or less. Yes, most of the recappers have Twitter accounts, not that it took me a hell of a long time to post that information here or anything. In addition to our personal accounts, there is also a main @videogamerecaps account where I will be posting any and all updates, provided I remember.

Now back to my regularly scheduled procrastination…

Update: It seems I already broke the Twitter widget by adding a link or something. Awesome. Hopefully it will refresh and display some actual content soon.
