This is going to be a first for me: I am actually going to review some anime! I never really thought this day would come as I am not "otaku" for anime (the Japanese equivalent of being "cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs"). Truth is, prior to this show, I've only ever watched TWO complete anime shows in my life, the first being the superlative Cowboy Bebop (in my opinion, one of the finest pieces of science fiction to ever grace the small screen - when will we get that live action version?!?), and the sadly mediocre Claymore
It is one of those things where one game leads to another, which leads to another.... In this case the instigator was Red Orchestra 2. As I detailed here, I've been having a blast with the Rising Storm expansion. Well, after playing on a bunch of servers that also hosted the core Ost Front content, I started to notice that maps which favored armored warfare were coming up quite infrequently in the rotation. Truth be told this is no big loss as I hate how RO2 restricts armored vehicles to players who choose the role of crewman/tank commander.

In truth I hope no one has to get involved in this. It's too crappy.
I made a startling realization today: E3, the world's greatest gaming confab, starts tomorrow...and I just don't care. And it is not just me, but seemingly a lot of other people don't care as well because the pre-convention chatter is almost non-existent this time around. Usually by now, the interwebs would be thick with expectation, anticipation, and countless E3 leaks about one hot game or another. This definitely is not the case case this year. In fact, the only reason I was reminded that E3 was just around the corner was due to PR
