​TAY Time Chat – Old Series, New Genre

Hey everyone! Welcome to the TAY Time Chat. I was going through the news today and noticed that some news of the newest Assassin's Creed games came out.

Yurikuma Arashi: the Ani-TAY Review

Yurikuma Arashi is known as Lesbian Bear Storm in English. It's a very frank title. This is an anime that is indeed full of lesbians, bears, and storms. It's exactly what it says on the box. But as this is a show directed by the singular Kunihiko Ikuhara of Revolutionary Girl Utena and Mawaru Penguindrum fame, it's a… » 3/31/15 10:16am Today 10:16am

Bloodborne - The Story

From Software's latest tough-as-nails action RPG is out, complete with, of course, the same vague and bizarre storytelling the Souls series was famous for.

Bickering Bros. Bonding

I think you can tell a lot about your relationship with a person from the way the two of you play Mario Bros. together. While many a multiplayer videogame has asked us to join forces with other players or test our skills against them, Shigeru Miyamoto's 1983 classic was unique in that it was pretty much down for… » 3/30/15 7:06pm Yesterday 7:06pm

TAY Time Chat: Rolling days are over...

Last Saturday, I mentioned in Watcha Playing how I was planning to cure my overdose of S.T.E.A.M. with some Katamari love. Katamari lasted just one extra day. I didn't have an idea on how short it was. Maybe it's because I had so much fun when playing it and didn't realize the time spent in the game, but I felt… » 3/30/15 5:03pm Yesterday 5:03pm
