Hey there!  My name is Ryan but I usually go by Skip or Skippy :> Like everyone else here I'm a big fan of anime and I love video games.  I've been playing MMO's since I was a wee lad. Whether its watching anime, reading a book or playing a video game I'm always critiquing it my head, such as, "I wonder what made them go with this over that?". I'm very interested and invested in the world around me and there's nothing I love more than beautiful artwork in all of its shapes and sizes :D


My Reviews

"Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae." -Kurt Vonnegut

This is pretty much my motto when writing reviews.  I try not to let my reviews turn into rants and I certainly try not to build a superiority complex while writing.  Oddly enough I usually enjoy the "bad" anime anyways.  Sometimes I just like good old fashioned mindless fun.

Star Ratings

The ratings I give animes on my watched list may differ from the score on my reviews.  This is because I try to give credit where credit is due, even if I didn't personally enjoy it for some reason.  Sometimes I'll give a bad review to an anime that I enjoyed.  Numbers are just technicalities.  The tone of my reviews generally reflect how I truly feel about them.  Read my review before getting snippy on my score :)

★☆☆☆☆: Torture

★★☆☆☆: Bad

★★★☆☆: Average

★★★★☆: Great

★★★★★: Incredible!

Your Criticism

I want my name to be equated with high quality and helpful reviews.  I encourage comments on my reviews.  I put a lot of time and thought into what I write so naturally I'd like to know your thoughts!  And feel free to critique! Seriously, if you ever read anything I write and it comes off like a ten year-old wrote it, let me know.  Even minor things that can improve flow and consistency are welcome.  Oh, and by the way, I love debates.  If you disagree with one of my reviews or opinions, send me a message explaining why.  I'll take it as an early "Thank You," before I totally turn over your world. >:]

I love random comments so ^^ sounds good to me. I haven't heard of this new game yet. To be completely honest  i'm struggling with .hack//sign Outbreak the third game because you have to go solo in the beggining xD and i'm just not used to not having Sanjuro and Elk (my two favorites :P) That does sound exciting as far as Sora. I used to play world of warcraft and my friends always compared my personaility to his as far as spontinatity xD.

G.U. Is alright, the movie even though complete CG is the real winner. They never explain this in the anime at all but i read up on a website that the main guy in G.U. (his name escapes me at the moment.) is Sora grown up and he had amnesia of ever playing the game from when he was killed in .hack//sign. Kinda interesting i didn't find this out till after i had finished the series for quite sometime. I will deffinatly agree .hack//sign was the best. I rewatched it recently (since i'm playing the games) and it's insane how closely they got the gameplay to resemble the actual scenes in the anime.

(Long comment is long) I read your profile ^^ I'm also a video game junkie as well as a writer. ^^ I was on the literary magazine at my school but i will admit. xD Grammar and spelling is not my forte. Reviewing is hard at first, the .hack series was the first one i did because i had to personally look up the order to figure it out; but i think it gets easier in time xD i force myself to do at least one review a month.

No problem. I love the "pour your enemies a nice warm cup of lead".

And I think we're all thirsty for justice.

I would want to be a seeker of the sun Miqo’te, my friend Jake wanted to be a keeper of the moon Miqo’te, so we could play as a team of Miqo’te's. Hopefully a thief type class emerges. I look forward to playing with you dude.

I don't know if the PS3 does, I know the PSP does. If I need to get Skype, I can just get a an extension onto Larimix, since some "DJ. Lari Mix" thinks its his name. >>But I am glad to hear the servers are linked, I always love when they do that.

What race do you think you will be in FFXIV?

Ah, I almost got one of those, but then "Larimix" was taken by some guy in Ne Mexico, so since I could not get my name, I do not intend on having one.
