Hey all a couple months ago there was a rather vocal outcry to a certain post I made. It’s A Reminder on Column Topics!

Why?: I wanted to clear any misconceptions regarding my columns and what they deal with. Because while I love the fact that people commented to such a massive degree on one of my posts, the fact is that everything I said in that post was completely true, accurate and stuck to the topic of that column. I accept constructional criticism and welcome it gladly, I went to Art School for game design, which is how I know most of what I talk about on my blog and my various game reviews, so receiving said criticism is nothing new for me.

But don’t call my posts something they aren’t, and if I absolutely tear apart a beloved franchise for you, please keep in mind that I deal with stories of all kinds. I’ve experienced tens of thousands of them in various media formats from the spoken word to video games, and I’ve experienced just about every single type of story there is out there. What you think is amazing is not necessarily so amazing to me because I have little patience for something that can’t hold my attention enough for me to care about the characters.

Now here is your reminder on my columns. These are the descriptions I have on Windborne’s Story Eatery for each column.

Anime Sunday: My posts on Sundays are about Anime. Simple Enough.

Movie Monday: Movie Mondays are days where I cover some of my favorite movies of all time and some I hate with a passion. You’ll have to read which are which in each post!

Video Game Tuesday: Posts on Tuesdays are about Video Games and the Video Game Industry.

Bookish Wednesday: Posts on Wednesdays are about various books. Previously called Book Series Wednesday.

Translation Necessary Thursday: Posts on Thursday are focused on various written works that are translated from Japan, Korea and China. These include Light Novels, Web Novels, and Novels.

Retro Game Friday: Posts on Fridays cover games from previous video game generations, and the reviews are usually not unbiased as I’m going off memory of my time playing the game rather than playing it recently.

Serial Saturday: Posts on Saturdays are all about amateur English Web Novels that are published online, usually on royalroad.com. Sometimes the series covered will be absolutely amazing, other times I’m going to roast them for their mistakes.
