Happy Sunday, everyone!

Please sound off here, about what you enjoy about recent articles, what you'd like to see improved, and what type of original content you'd prefer to read moving forward.



I might also be able to get the next part of the Metal Gear retrospective done by the end of the month, but that's going to be after the Norihiko Hibino and Forgotten Gems-articles, so can't promise that yet.



My Most Recent Articles:

1. Video Game Music Spotlight #14: A Moment of Calm

2. Gods and Superheroes: The Story of Clover Studio

3. Video Game Music Spotlight #13: Winter and Cold

Nice articles, team. Looking forward to the Liar Princess and Blind Prince review, the game looks fascinating, I hope it plays as well as it looks.

Also, a bit of a request. When you make an article of an upcoming game coming to one platform or another, can you please request to the DB team to add said game to the DB before publishing the article? When a game that is in the DB gets an article, the DB page links to that article, but when the DB page is done after the article, it doesn't link it. Thank you. :)



You know it deserves the GOTY.
