Second Anniversary

September 8, 2010 at 12:24 am 26 comments

Last week was the second anniversary for Hau~ Omochikaeri~! and we’ve only had the time to write up this post now. We’ll just take some time to reflect on the past year and show some site and visitor stats. Thank you for dropping by, whether you are a daily follower or a first time visitor.

By the Numbers

  • Views: 569,481
  • Posts: 481
  • Comments: 3,006
  • Most searched term (this year): “hau omochikaeri” (3,544)
  • Most clicked link (this year): Verbal Rubbish (1,291)
  • Site header banners: 32

Pageviews per day are hovering around 1k to 1.1k since it’s Saimoe season. I guess that the site is starting to be more known, so our google rank is going up (that or people are stumbling on this site while searching for Rena). I’d be great if this means more people are exposed to, understand and appreciate eroge. Also, thanks m3rry for being my bro as we got 1,233 referrals from his site this year!

Looking Back

The main challenge this past year was finding a balance between work, play and writing (which is halfway between work and play). I’ve been trying to streamline some of the posts to reduce writing time. With the weekly news becoming a mainstay, I’ve merged the figure and anime season news into it. There have also been more new light novel info since I first learned about them via JITSU‘s Dekotsun post and started to read them early this year.

New features added over the past year are the Livestream channel, random webclap images, eroge definition and new sidebar images. As many of you have noted, there have been few reviews lately by either of us, but it’s something we aim to rectify soon.

I enjoyed the past year while being trapped by Shinobu, celebrating the Year of the Taiga, tweeting while playing eroge, and being obsessed with Oreimo and talking about it with every chance I’m given. There was also the free eroge se.Kirara, which… I still haven’t played. Anyways, it sure was fun. Tastes like happiness.

Visitor Survey

Now for the results from the second anniversary visitor survey! First of all, thank you for everyone that took a few minutes of your valuable free time to fill out the survey. We highly appreciate your comments and suggestions!

There were a total of 177 respondents, 156 of whom completed the entire survey. The other 21 people only completed the first page (maybe they didn’t know there were more…?), so I’ve included them only in the first three questions (gender, age and country). I did a bit of checking to remove partials due to disconnects, cleaned the data slightly and did some regrouping on my own. Keep in mind when looking at the results that since it’s a self-selecting sample, it’s a bit difficult to generalize results. However, it’s fun to see the breakdowns anyway.

The gender breakdown for visitors is 78% male and 22% female. Most are between the ages of 18 and 23 (66%). I had anticipated that most people would be 18-23 year old males and that’s exactly what I saw with over half (53%) of all respondents falling into this category. Surprisingly (?), 19% are under 18. So I guess it’s a good thing I kept this site mostly safe for work. ;)

Almost a third (32%) of visitors came from the US, with a high proportion from either California or the east coast. What I didn’t expect was that Europe was the third highest region at 19%, with only North America (45%) and Southeast Asia (28%) placing higher. I’m glad that there is interest in eroge all over the world.

I don’t make new posts every day nowadays, but I still try to update the sidebars as much as possible. That’s probably why 28% visit daily, 82% visit at least once a week and 97% at least once a month. Part of this may be because only those that come to the site a lot end up taking the survey, but I digress…

More interestingly, almost half (47%) came from other blogs or websites, including those by my comrade-in-arms Hemi, m3rry and Kres. Another 30% came via search engines like Google. Other sources include databases like VNDB, imageboards and recommended sources from feed readers like Google Reader. Speaking of feeds, 25% subscribe to the RSS feed. For those that don’t know what they are, RSS is a standardized format for posts that a feed aggregator can use so that you can be easily follow a lot of sites at once and get updates as new items are posted. I’ve been using Google Reader myself and it saves me a lot of time. However, please do visit the actual site to view the content!

As expected, most visitors view the weekly news (87%), monthly eroge releases (72%) and eroge reviews (70%). Since it’s Saimoe season at the moment, 34% also follow the tourney progress. I hope your fav chars are all doing well. Interestingly 4% come to see Zen or our contrasts in commentary. Don’t worry, he’s still here and snarky as ever.

Among those that read the weekly news, 75% follow eroge, but surprisingly people also follow manga/LN (56%), anime (51%) and doujin (43%) news. I’ll try to promote light novels more since there isn’t that much info out there for those that read them.

There’s a lot of features on this site and I’m glad that over 3 in 4 (77%) use them. Most people check the eroge release dates (60%), resource links (46%), recent news (37%) and on-air anime dates (26%). My YouTube channel has gained some subscribers lately and it’s nice to listen to the playlists on loop.

Some interesting tidbits that I also found:

  • Females are more likely to read figure (31% vs 16%) news than males, although that doesn’t mean that they aren’t interested in eroge (84% vs 88%) either.
  • Kids (under 18 years old) have too much time on their hands. 57% of them visit daily, with 86% viewing eroge items.
  • Kids are more likely to be interested in doujin games (64% vs 36%), character polls (36% vs 21%) and view YouTube playlists (43% vs 18%). They also want eroge reviews more (63% vs 34%).

Suggestions and Comments

We got a lot of suggestions as to how to improve this site and cater to our readers, along with some general comments. We’ll address some of them here, with excerpts.

“More review! it’s been long since I last seen both of your reviews~ ~~>__<~~”
“General how I end up here is by Googling random eroge. So erm… more eroge reviews?”
“I would love to see more reviews of visual novels.”
“Eroge reviews, there were some in-depth one from before that garnered good discussion but they were few and far between.”
“Please write more review for us ^^”
“Eroge reviews (Bonus points for joint reviews like Tenshin Ranman)”
“More eroge reviews would be nice, though I know it takes a while to write a full review. Moreso if you take a look at the very comprehensive reviews that were written in the past. Nonetheless, I really enjoy reading them, especially when the I just finished the reviewed eroge.”

As expected, most people (45% of those who wrote a suggestion) wanted more reviews. This is understandable as the last reviews that I wrote was Suzunone Seven! and Zen’s was Koiiro Sora Moyou. It takes a while for us to write one up and Zen and I had been talking about how to improve on this. We’ll be adding a new category for eroge impressions. This will include those titles that we did not completely finish and/or dropped. This is mainly for Zen since he complains that he doesn’t want to do a review of a game that he dropped halfway through, or blatantly avoided the imouto route for. I lost my gameplay notes and screenshots when my hard drive died in June, but I’ll try to get a few done in the coming months.

I am a bit surprised over how many people wanted to see more reviews, personally I had assumed there was not much interest in them. For my part the main reason I am slow with reviews is that I only review when I complete a game in its entirety, as if I drop a game before completing it I feel i cannot adequately review it. There is also the issue when playing games that are older as there would be less interest in a review of them I don’t even bother to consider writing them. So if I have not reviewed a game for awhile it usually means all the new games that have been coming out just plain suck too much to bother writing about. As Micchi mentioned already however the impressions section should help with that, to provide something of a review lite.

“Imouto. Should be clambering all over the site.”
“Keep the imoutos coming.”
“Just post more imoutos & lolis! :d”
“… more imouto, perhaps? ^^;”

Did I hear that people want more imoutos? ^o^

I think you heard wrong, I can only assume everyone who commented was simply doing so to spite me and not to support your fetish.

“I like onee-sans more than imoutos.”
“Oneesans >>>>>>>>> Imoutos :)”
“I Like onee-chan better though.”
“Imoutos are the sweetest creature, yes they are. I still prefer childhood friends. Hahaha this blog is great. I love it.”

You can love both! Don’t worry, I do like childhood friends too and Zen has the onee-san type covered.

I have to agree with these well adjusted individuals, nice to see there are still people with some sense in the world, except the last one that person needs a little sister of their own to crush their dreams.

“Traps, Traps and MORE TRAPS. Just kidding. Imoutos, Cute and Moe Imoutos. But not loli blond pig-tailed tsunderes. I would like to see Yaoi Games but that’s kinda impossible. More Eroge Reviews. I like how you (Zen and Micchi) fight. So more eroge-fight!! It’s really funny!! ^^ Just be the way you are. (P.S. Really don´t follow the yaoi advice. It will only bring misfortune to you, and Zen)”

Nothing is impossible. I will gladly satisfy your trap and imouto needs. Zen will gladly satisfy your yaoi needs.

I never understood the appeal of trannies.. It is too bad the readers who enjoy our bickering cannot see some of our MSN conversations, they tend to be a lot more amusing as far as our polite disagreements go in my opinion. As far as yaoi well…. who knows you only live once so it is best to experience everything you can…

“Well, it’d be nice to see if some of the worthwhile doujin eroges would get presence in the monthly upcoming eroge previews, or maybe even a separate post for them.”

Doujin news is a little more difficult to come by as there are a lot of circles out there, but most of them are focused on H. If I come upon anything major during the Comiket months, I’ll try to include it if it’s a VN/eroge.

“More eroge reviews! ! ! Also, if possible, since there’s pretty much light novels are there in Japan recently, a review segment will also do.”
“More talk about light novels would be nice.”

Writing up light novel reviews is actually something that I’ve been thinking about doing, but haven’t quite decided on what’s the best format. I want to be able to provide a good feel for that particular volume, without spoiling too much. Look forward to this in the coming months.

“I would love to have links and such to reccomended anime and eroge to start on if I was a begginer to them and more reviews. I would also love it if there a portion of the site that listed some of the basic japanese terminology since you use many japanese words on the site.”

These are both great ideas. I do use a lot of Japanese words that not everyone may be familiar with, partially because some words lose some of the meaning when translated literally. So, it makes sense to have a terminology page where these words are explained in more detail. I’ll need your help in compiling this in case I missed any. Accany has a list of recommended eroge, but I guess I should write a small section on the eroge page for recommendations. Anime isn’t the focus on this site, so that’s better left for those at AnimeSuki or MAL.

Eroge recommendation page would be interesting, as far as anime is concerned I have been talking to Micchi about a few ways to possibly include more of it on the site, though it would probably end up being managed mostly by myself as I watch more anime than Micchi does.

“tsuntsun deredere banter between Micchi and Zen? l:)”
“Zen Not likely I know.”
“Zen being cynical =w=”
“Zen Twitter.”

Zen is so popular. I second Zen Twitter.

With the focus on reviews I think I will put a bit more effort into making review posts and with the potential for a few new sections there may be more of both myself and joint commentary with Micchi to look forward to. As far as twitter… I really do not get what the hell the point of twitter is I would rather just use AIM and MSN to talk to people if I so desire… IF someone can provide me with a good reason to setup a twitter and actually use it I will consider it… otherwise I’ll just remain a luddite.

“Just that you guys should keep up the great work. Just please try to not agree with each other too much, it’s just plain scary when that happens and it is probably bad for the environment.”

It’s just mainly a problem in those slow months. If our top 3 match ever again, he’ll be playing imouto-ge and I’ll be… No, I can’t imagine that happening.

I cannot say I much want to try imagining that.. The day I start playing imouto-ge is the day… nope I cannot come up with anything as equally unlikely as this. Though I would like to see Micchi do a 180 sometime when it comes to younger sisters… Regardless as Micchi said it is mostly just slow months, it leaves little to choose from and really saps a lot of desire to play and comment on eroge.

“Nothing. More power to you, guys. Kinda stop circle-jerking, it’s annoying.”

Sorry if our comments and opinions are not the same as yours. Keep in mind that we provide the basic premise and details for each game and then our personal opinions. I’ll always love moe-ge and imoutos, while Zen will always be an ass. Occasionally, our first impressions will not be true and I don’t want to dissuade people from trying out new games. Remember, you know what you like best! :)

This comment made me laugh pretty hard so whoever you are thanks for that, whether serious or a joke it made my day. It does make me wonder though if they were serious how did they even find the blog?

“Your blog is the best! (☝゚∀゚)☝ More seriously, I love your reviews and opinions on games and your weekly news! I wasn’t that much interested in imoutos before reading your blog, but since I read you, it changed! I played a lot of eroges that you recommended and they were awesome, we have pretty much the same taste~ Thank you! Bracon imouto FTW”

Just as planned.

There’s also some other suggestions like illustrator spotlights, status of English translations, more Niconico videos, and more posts in general. Please check out LonelyAmure’s site for illustrator highlights and the Translation Library for translation info. Also, thank you for those that sent us encouragement and liked the site as it is, including the fact that it’s mostly worksafe. It means a lot to us, even if Zen doesn’t want to admit it. ( ´・‿-) ~ ♥

I also appreciate the feedback as it does help to know there is some demand for the work put into writing, especially with the reviews I honestly had no idea so many people wanted to see more reviews.

Spreading Imouto Love

Now time for the most important question on the survey: “Do you love imoutos?”.  It is my personal goal to open everyone’s eyes to the awesomeness that is the imouto.

The majority (74%) of visitors love imoutos! Some people prefer older sister (oneesan) and childhood friend (osananajimi) types, which is totally understandable since they are the eternal rivals of imoutos. However, what’s with the 3% that didn’t know what imouto are!? Imouto is “little sister”. In the 2D world, they are normally depicted as small in stature and chest size, affectionate and dependent on their older brother, and slightly jealous if their oniichan becomes close with other girls. They are absolutely adorable and make you want to take them home with you.

If you’re still unsure of whether you like them or not, don’t worry! I’ll be posting a lot more about imoutos in my posts, so just check out the links and see for yourself how cute and sweet they are. Hau~ omochikaeri~!

Once again, thank you for your continued support! We hope to be even better in the coming year!

P.S. One year older, but imoutos will remain imoutos forever.

(Until Onii-chan dies anyway, then they revert to just being “Brats”)

    I actually was not aware of how the RSS feed system works, or that google reader even existed. I would like to know more about that, as I caused way too many “hau omochikaeri” searches from google, and then doing it perhaps twice or more times in a single day to see if there was an update. (Slow months led to more demand on new updates.) It’s surprisingly inefficient.

    I mentioned Zen Twitter as more of a concept of heightened interactivity. Quite frankly it made little sense for me to mention that suggestion as I myself do not use twitter. As I mentioned before, one of the parts of this blog I like reading about is the Zen and Micchi contrast. Likewise, direct interactivity between reader and Zen/Micchi is also intriguing, particularly in more detail as well. I gather there exists a better method of communication than blog post commenting. Then there can be not only contrasts on the post, but also reader contrasts and more thoughts can be delved.

    Oh gosh I forgot about nemuiwanko. Still stranded in rokkenjima? Since the figurine and anime posts were merged with the weekly news, I couldn’t tell who was the speaker after that occurred. Though, there had always been a variety in the posts, with a huge scope of small news, which has always been fun to read.

    Likely the lack of eroge reviews is not only the time constraints and lack of completion, but also the limitation of what can be analyzed in several eroge (particularly when most don’t warrant 100% completion.). Saturation in recent eroge content has gone to the point that the premise/trial version/CG/walkthrough already can conclude the general idea of the plot (or lack thereof.) Same can be said about character design or implementation. Thus I usually look at properties of a character, but that just makes me look further back into a much older game, making the probability of an impression or a review of said older game even less likely.

    I think eroge impressions is a good idea considering it’s short enough to post a brief opinion. After all, attention getting is rather critical, and if it’s feasible enough, it warrants continuation anyhow. Though attention getting isn’t usually a problem, it’s what the plot does with the premise (if it has one.) There exists a low amount of information, so an insight is always nice. Also, it’s good to have the monthly release post, but no impressions or reviews is also like, no follow up. We know what you end up playing or trying, but not much opinion other than a few lines. (Likely there wasn’t enough content or drive to warrant a review for several picks, and for that same reason causes a big demand for a review too because of the lack of information in general.)

    (Speaking of 2010, maybe not so much emphasis on impressions/reviews, though that’s due to more lacking/slow pools, so there’s little that stands out. I feel like the further back you go, the better pool there is to review for say, the 2005 – 2008 range … maybe 2009 but not really.) Since you guys already answered my convention attending questions, that already filters out actual event news or specifications of specific artists/producers/etc. (That and for VNs specifically it’s semi-non-existant, as opposed to anime/manga/other correlation.)

    Thanks for the illustrator highlight reference, as I was not aware of this (or many other things for that matter). Plot/writing/premise can be lacking in recent games, but usually the art isn’t an issue, relatively speaking. Because of general saturation, the pool of readable picks are roughly the same, with variance on additional preferences or whatnot.

    Looks like I need to up my Japanese again. In the end blogs are very good, but can’t get the full effect of eroge enjoyment without more Japanese language knowledge. This blog’s source count is huge, and highly varied and recent. Thus, more writing would be most appealing going forward. Well, can’t ask for too much. Things did get busier (with slower months too), so having so much more to implement would come with time and not be so immediate. I am curious how far you’re willing to backdate older series (considering slowness as you stated yourself, is going pretty far, making a review on a recent eroge unlikely for the time being).

    Reviews are also limiting to defend against spoiling, but perhaps further explanation/analysis on properties/traits/characteristics and how well/poorly it was integrated would also be intriguing. What worked, and what did not work so well? What changed? (Actually change is a bad example as Zen stated he picks a game for what it is, not for referencing previous works. Cross referencing previous works isn’t what you emphasize either.)

    Ack, head cramping from information overload. I’ll stop here.

    Zen Twitter wwww

    “There is also the issue when playing games that are older as there would be less interest in a review of them I don’t even bother to consider writing them. So if I have not reviewed a game for awhile it usually means all the new games that have been coming out just plain suck too much to bother writing about.”

    No, please don’t think it this way. I generally read a review if I’m interested in the game (and yes, just like you, I’m not terribly enthused about most of the newer ones), otherwise I just scroll past and read the main conclusion of the reviewer. The age of the game has nothing to do with this.

  • 4. frustra  |  September 8, 2010 at 6:11 am

    grats on your second anniversary :D

  • 5. seele00  |  September 8, 2010 at 7:10 am

    Congratulations on your second anniversary! Also, most kids may have time on their hands, but I go here to relax.

    Zen must get a Twitter.

  • 6. enthor  |  September 8, 2010 at 1:24 pm

    …I don’t suppose you’d be willing to have a separate section where you guys post the better AIM/MSN conversations between you guys? Seems pretty promising…

  • 9. klutch  |  September 8, 2010 at 7:16 pm

    you need to talk in your streams bro

  • 10. Amoirsp  |  September 8, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    If anything, review older games that warrant a good play. (Well, I personally like “prototype” effect of earlier works) Not to do so much compare and contrast, but there always exist cases of “oh this was good for its time for this or that reason, but it’s not so spectacular now due to advances in this aspect of the genre”, or like “you can see the fundamental elements in this good game of the past”.

    Although very few games would fall into that effect, especially with ranges of preferences. Quite frankly sometimes some older titles get more preference (popularity may be the word) simply due to it being the first encounter with eroge or whatever other reason there may be. Since the reviews clearly stray away from spoilers, it leads to more emphasis of the aspects of the game, which at least here is in an enjoyable format.

    For that same reason, there would exist games that garnered good first impression, but was overall disappointing (or wasn’t as good as it could be?). Likewise, there would also exist games that didn’t garner good first impressions, but ended up rather good. These would be most common to write about since ones that don’t possess a good impression and wasn’t delved into wouldn’t likely be reviewed, and very few games contain good impression and end up good. Bah, bad wording but the idea is clear.

    And by Zen twitter I did not mean rant twitter, but rather, objective opinion that lays pros and cons that exist. Hm, I’ll procure some reason that exists, if there is one.

    To the upcoming year we go!

  • 11. KarenMizuno  |  September 8, 2010 at 11:13 pm

    Congratulations!! I can’t believe one of my opinions is there TT TT. Zen, get a twitter.Please, everyone is, maybe, begging you. Maybe not. Hope we can have more anniversaries. Finally, Congratulations on 2nd Anniversary!!!

  • 12. Kotarou  |  September 8, 2010 at 11:49 pm

    Site mascot, where?

  • 13. Eab1990  |  September 9, 2010 at 12:00 am

    I can’t remember if I posted any extra comments. Probably not, I’m pretty terrible with on-the-spot open-ended questions.

    Kinda nice to see I’m in the majority for most of those categories. Power to the imoutos and imouto-lovers.

  • 14. Zen  |  September 9, 2010 at 11:33 am

    @Amoirsp : Wow you wrote more than I did for this post, I suppose I can see your point with twitter though. Still once we figure out how we want to integrate an impressions section that is not invasive (Such as a new post for every impression) I think there maybe some overlap there? Still I guess I could at least make a twitter so people know what I am reading at the time and if there may be a review coming at least.

    Ah, I think maybe I was not quite clear in my intent, it is not so much that I think newer games are better or anything but rather older games would have usually already been read through by most people. Since the games have been completed everyone has already formed their opinions leaving little purpose for a review.

    We all need to improve our Japanese, it is one of those never ending pursuits of all who play eroge. Still it is also one of the more enjoyable aspects to watch your language skills improve over time.

    I have tried to mention the creators of a game a little bit more where appropriate in commentary and such, however I still prefer to ignore that in general. Well maybe not so so much ignore as not prioritize, Purplesoft for example; I won’t be touching their games unless I hear very good things. After a string of disappointments even I will start taking note.

    @SnooSnoo : Bah! I’ll think about it though.

    @izmosmolnar : As I mentioned above, just in case people skip that I will mention it again; the only thing I have against old games is there is little left to say when the majority of people interested would have already played the games. However despite that I am working on reading two older games that I hope I can find the time to finish up and review in the next few weeks for different reasons.

    @seele00 : Leave an old man alone already! We don’t like newfangled gadgetry! I am really surprised by how many people like twitter though, personally I never really saw the point. Though a progress report might be useful I suppose, especially considering all the games I drop.

    @enthor : Actually much of our commentary comes about as a result of our MSN conversations, just re-written to be a bit less verbose.

    @hugh : Everyone is against me!

    @Amoirsp : I agree that it is interesting to watch the evolution of eroge, however it seems to be as the games became more popular they began to stagnate. Most are so set in their ways in terms of story and character designs to the point the variations are so minute there is a feeling when you play one game you have played them all. The feeling of innovation you have in older games is for the most part a thing of the past. Even when you go back and read a game from years ago the way the characters are written feels more real, as their traits feel more like a part of their personality and less just there for moe appeal in order to include all the standard character types.

    @KarenMizuno : *Sighs deeply* Well I suppose I can setup a twitter, I make no promises on my being active on it though, Micchi will most likely have to give me a kick to bother updating it.

    Wow two comments in the time I was writing..

    @Kotaru : Well as far as the mascot idea we are still talking that over how to handle it so no mater what we decide on it will take some time.

    @Eab1990 : This part really shocked me, just how many people actually like the whole “Imouto” gimmick.

  • 15. Choux  |  September 10, 2010 at 1:03 am

    Hmm… if a mascot is required, can I recommend myself for the job? Resume here. Let see… I’ve got kouhai, osananajimi, genki-kei, semi-long hair, heterochromia, beret , ribbons , and shimapan (just because you can’t see it doesn’t mean it’s not there~) I can’t draw yaeba, so I threw in a fang instead lol.

  • 16. Wrathkal  |  September 10, 2010 at 7:14 am

    Lol, there was a survey? Maybe it came during the time when I stopped visiting this site for a while… I never noticed.

    Congrats on the 2nd anniversary by the way. Appreciate all you two have done for us out there.

  • 17. nagiamatsu  |  September 11, 2010 at 4:07 am

    congrats again for the second anniversary~
    once again~ hau! omochikaeri~! (for imouto~ oneesan~ trap~ yandere and many more bishoujo~ and bishounen~)

    I really appreciate both of your good work for delivering info that I need :D

    oh by the way zen, everyone wants you to have twitter, so grant it! or I will send more mahou-shoujo to chase you to your dreams! ^__^

    My thanks to both of you for the great content you’re always delivering!

  • 21. Amoirsp  |  September 12, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Me still suffering from information overload.

    Congratulations on 2 year anniversary! I remember taking the survey and thinking: monthly releases, weekly news and you are taking suggestions at what new things to bring to Hau Omochikaeri~, you must be either a super blogger or have time-traversing jet pack that allows you 36 hours per day.

    The eroge impression section sounds like a great idea, kinda like the preview in monthly releases, which everyone loves!

    My thanks for your continued effort towards both spreading eroge info and combating the preconceived motion of all eroge=nukige.

    @Kresnik / Amoirsp : I proposed that idea around six months to a year ago… Maybe eventually… If Micchi ever agrees..

      Convince Micchi to agree. I’d love to share thoughts with you and others.

    Thank you a lot for all the comments! ^^ Replies, ho!

    @Amoirsp: The weekly news are all compiled and written by me. Sometimes Zen comments in webclap responses, but that’s about it. By the way, if you want to direct webclaps at Zen or nemuiwanko, just do so and I’ll get them to respond.

    @izmosmolnar: This is what I’ve been telling Zen all along. Good to see I’m not the only one who thinks this.

    @enthor: It’s mostly me spamming him with pictures of imoutos and mahou shoujos. ^_____^

    @Tsumi-tan: Aye aye!

    @klutch: I prefer to just let the game run since it’s more about showing the game and less of my impressions.

    @Zen: I’ll gladly nag you to update your Twitter.

    @Choux: Ooo cute! >w< I think I'd make the hair a little shorter and use no heterochromia or yaeba here. Well, mascot design is kinda not a priority atm. We're just fooling around… I think Zen's scribbling something.

    @Wrathkal: It was on the sidebar for 5 days.

    @Kresnik: Isn't that what IRC is for? (Well, I'm not in there but…)

    @warum: Haha, I wish I had more time to bring more news and reviews to you guys. I personally think that it's important to always improve on what you have. So look forward to new things in the future!
