Yay, the actual post is finally here! I apologize for the delay, but hopefully these birthday/anniversary goodies will make up for it.
First of all, there’s another Eternal Darkness recap, this one starring a lovelorn homosexual pageboy. In most games, the gay hero nonconsensually ends up paired with an icky girl, so you’ll be happy to know that this game only subjects the gay hero to a painful zombification spell. Baby steps.
Quartz Falcon has also provided us with another Recap Retrospective, this one a look back at Final Fantasy X and the “infamous” blitzball game. Good times, good times. And by “good” I’m referring to QF’s retrospective, and not the experience of recapping Tidus.
That brings us to the other announcements that I promised in my last post. I’d like to thank everyone who has continued to read the site in spite of the, er, less than regular updates over the past couple of years. As you may have noticed, I’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into updating all of my recaps recently. Well, I am happy to announce that this year, I am going forward with a much-needed site redesign. This will involve both an improvement to the look of the site and a reorganization of the site content.
Also, I have set a personal goal of updating all of my pending recaps in 2009. Already I have three down, with only six more to go. I’m not counting tag team recaps here — just my individual ones.
I can’t speak for the other recappers, but I’m hoping they will be willing to help support the site by providing even more delicious recapping goodness for all of us. I am so grateful for the time they put in, year after year, and they do it all for free. I’m not even blackmailing them or anything.
So stay tuned for a better-looking site, more frequent recaps and blog posts, and more penis jokes than you can handle! I mean it this time!
(Also, if you visited the site before this update, you might have noticed that I mentioned something about another Recapper Roleplay. I don’t have the new one ready yet, but rest assured that I have more than one in the pipeline. That is not a euphemism. Stay tuned (again)!)
