Burning the Backlog – Final Fantasy XII Parts 1 – 6

So. I suppose it has been quite some time since anything has been here at all. Long story shot is that life got the way for most of us. That being said I figured since this site still exists and I miss the whole making content for the web thing I figured I would start posting things on TYG once again.

So here is the start of a new Burning the Backlog series. This time I am solo and I will play through the entirety of Final Fantasy XII. Why you ask? Well the short and simple answer to that question is that while going through some of the stuff I had in storage I found two copies of the game. This kinda surprised me, mostly because I honestly don’t even remember buying the game once.

So i figured why not play it. So here we are. With a new solo version of BTB that will air first live on Twitch. I haven’t set a schedule as of yet but if you are interested in catching any of the future recordings live then feel free to follow me on Twitch. Or you can wait for the new episodes to show up on my personal Youtube channel.

The exhibit highlights the dramatic and innovative work that went into realizing the X-Men on the big screen using pieces saved by Smith himself over the course of production.

We jumped at the chance to cover it for you guys, knowing how many of our readers are fans of the X-Men and would be interested in a free exhibit filled with pieces saved from the making of the films by Gordon Smith himself.

Fan Expo 2012: The Cosplay Masquerade (Part 1/3)

One of the largest events every year at Fan Expo is the Cosplay Masquerade: A damn near three hour extravaganza of cosplayers, costumes, and corny jokes by the announcer. The masquerade is a cosplay stage show and competition where Fan Expo attendees get 15-30 seconds on stage to impress the crowd, and the judges, with their costuming talent and vie for awards in various categories.

TYG was fortunate enough to be able to cover the complete event, and we will be bringing it to you in three ~50 minute videos (uploaded in 720p because the 1080 versions are simply too big).

This is the first part, and the next two will be following soon.
