Rockmandash Rambles: Why You Should Fund Under The Dog, and What this…

When I first saw Under the Dog, I wasn't exactly sure what to think about it. I thought that it looked cool, but they were just asking too much money.

Rockmandash Reviews: Clannad [Visual Novel & Anime]

It's only once in a blue moon that you'll run into a story that fundamentally changes who you are. Clannad is a show that changed how I viewed the world, and how I treat others. I love it for what it did, and for what it is, and it'll always hold a special place in my heart. Welcome to Rockmandash Reviews, and today… » 8/25/14 6:00pm 8/25/14 6:00pm

Rockmandash Reviews: Fate/hollow ataraxia [Visual Novel]

If you haven't noticed, I'm a big fan of Type Moon, and their most prominent series, the Fate Series. That being said, if you asked me what my favorite Type-Moon game was, you wouldn't get the typical F/SN or Tsukihime; Instead, my response to you would be what we have for review today, Fate/hollow ataraxia. » 8/03/14 12:00pm 8/03/14 12:00pm
