Chat Radio

This is an old thing Edwin and I used to do. The whole idea was that it was like a talk radio show, except over an internet instant messenger program. It was kinda dumb, but we were really excited about it. We cranked out eight right away, and then kicked out the last few over the span of a few more years. I’m not sure we’ll ever do one again, but it’s an idea we toy with every once in a while. Certainly we’d need to update the format. Does MSN Messenger even still exist? Maybe we’ll do a video CR in Second Life? Only time will tell.

Skyward Sword Replay

I played The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword when it was initially released in 2011, but then forgot basically everything about it. So then I replayed it during the summer of 2016 and kept a log of my thoughts and observations. Here are those entries in one tidy list.

Steve Articles

Should this really be here, or on the articles page? We may never know for sure, but I feel like I need to have more stuff on this page, and less over there. So a Feature it is! This is a collection of writings that my friend Steve sent me over a few months. Or… some sort of time unit. They aren’t dated and I don’t care enough to actually figure it out. Anyway, this series evolved from semi-incoherent rambling into fairly well-written essays, and I heartily recommend you give them all a read. They might not all make sense, but at the very least they’re a good way to spend an afternoon.

It’s worth noting that Steve wrote a handful of articles for Torrential Equilibrium’s long-defunct sister site, Comedy Napalm. These articles are lost to the ether, beyond the reach of even the Wayback Machine. If I do ever manage to find them, however, I will post them here a a tribute to the collab site that couldn’t make it. Also because I’d like the collection to be complete.


Ryan’s Game Guides

There was a time, long ago, where I was so into GameFAQs that I decided that I wanted to write content for the site. Ah, the follies of youth. Anyway, I have a handful of guides and reviews here that were submitted to GameFAQs under the guise of Mr_Hotshot64. Some of them were published, others were not. Also there’s a guide I wrote for my own RPG Maker game, Quest for the Cube. I never submitted it to GameFAQs, on account of it’s not an actual game.

The CD Archive

I’ll warn you now: this is a project that may never see even a hope of completion. It’s my effort to index and give a little blurb about each and every CD I own. I think it would probably deserve its own page if it were complete or at least something I worked on periodically, but it’s not, so it lives here in squalor. Enjoy?
