Well, that didn't last too long. You probably guessed, due to the lack of recent updates here, my health problems reared their ugly head once again. I was pretty well bed ridden & in rather large amounts of pain for all of last week, hence no Buttonhole action. That's perhaps the biggest bummer about this illness; you just never know how you'll be from one day to the next. However, as was the case last time this happened, I have improved gradually over the past few days. I reckon I'll be good to go again as of tomorrow. I hope I wind up feeling great again, as was the case last time too. And I hope it lasts a bit (or a lot) longer this time!
Whenever the site is quiet for a while, about 9 times out of 10 you can assume it is due to those kinds of problems. I am never sure whether I should keep mentioning it or not, as it gets a bit repetitious. But I figure, this stupid thing is just a part of my life, so why pretend it isn't? Anyhow, I can say for sure that getting back to work here is certainly always my favourite part. I have plenty of cool reviews and stuff from our crew, some are on the way and some of them are already done and waiting for me to post them. Hell, Aussie Ninja alone has sent a whole bunch of reviews in recently. That dude is on fire, reviewing up a storm!
Very nice to see Anime reviews back at Buttonhole again too. We haven't run any for a while and I know plenty of our readers dig some Japanese 'toons. So, the good news for all of you is that there will be plenty more Anime reviews coming up real soon, from me and Jason - other folks will likely review some as well. We've been getting some killer stuff from Madman of late. One of the titles I'm getting a kick out of at the moment is Desert Punk. Actually, I've not followed Anime closely for some time now, so I am really enjoying getting reacquainted with the medium. Anyway, as I said, more Anime coverage at Buttonhole is coming up real soon.
We'll have more DVD reviews of other kinds as well. The movie coverage has been a little slow here for a while, but that too will soon change for the better.
As far as our other topics go...take your pick and you'll be laughing, whatever your favourite might be. From yours truly, there'll be a little of everything - material for all our sections. The other Buttonholers have plenty cooking as well. One of the things I'm looking forward to writing about is the demo of the Xbox 360 game Saint's Row. I'm not usually that into demos, but holy crap, this one is a beauty and has made even more keen to play the final build. I'll share my thoughts so far with all you crazy boys and girls in my upcoming preview article.
I'll see you guys tomorrow. I'll be wearing my new shirt.
