Happy “Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate” Day

Most peo­ple prob­a­bly got it dur­ing the mid­night release yes­ter­day and are cur­rent­ly enjoy­ing their hunts as I type this. If I was­n’t so tight on cash right now, I would also be play­ing MH4U on that sweet lim­it­ed edi­tion New 3DS right now — maybe Majo­ra’s Mask 3D as well. …In all seri­ous­ness though, […]

Image Cred­it: タカはん from Pix­iv As some of you might already know from my Twit­ter, this week already marked the start of Spring Quar­ter over at my col­lege insti­tu­tion.

Innovative WAIFU TECHNOLOGY

I just might get one of these, since it’s 4 AM and I’m los­ing con­trol of my life. No, I think I should make choco­late pud­ding instead. Yeah, that would be a bet­ter idea.
