Site News: Top 111 Updates

Hey, so I’ve gotten around to shifting around my Top 111 to add in Super Mario Odyssey, Splatoon 2 and Garou: Mark of the Wolves. I’ve also decided to ax the publisher/developer stats from the site as they are kind of a pain to redo every time I switch up my list (I do intend…

Site News: Impending Feature on Women Game Composers

So, with the Women’s March about to begin I wanted to announce a new feature series here at LVLS — a spotlight on 52 women composers in the video game industry. Each weekend I will post a brief bio and some samples of a composer’s work for the next 52 weeks, in the hope to…

Site News: Yes, LVLS will be joining in on all the Year-End shit

Major press outlets are getting their “Best of” lists rolling out in full force, and I wanna play along and share my thoughts too! Join me as I discuss not only video games (of which my second half of my “Dual Life Perspective 2017” feature series will be posted, but also a proper 2017 only…

A Happy Holidays Wish from the Webmaster

Hello dear readers! I wanted to take a moment to wish all of you Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year (or, if your subscribed holidays fall outside of those two days, I wish you a great “insert holiday here” as well 🙂 )! I hope that the day brings you happiness, merriment and joy….

Site News: Regarding Rurouni Kenshin

So hey…welcome to what is apparently becoming a regular feature here on LVLS, a post explaining how a creator of something I loved turned out to be a fucking creep! In today’s edition, it’s Rurouni Kenshin mangaka Nobuhiro Watsuki! Last month Watsuki was arrested for possession of child pornography both at his office and at…

Clarification on some post deletions re: Brand New

I knew sooner or later I would hear something terrible about someone who has had a significant impact on me with all of the sexual harassment/abuses coming out lately. Yesterday brought to light allegations against Brand New’s Jesse Lacey, frontman of one of the most crucial bands of the 2000s to the present for me….

Site News: An Attempt to Credit Images

LVLS has been going on for 8 years now (in its two variants), and I’ve collected a bunch of artwork and screenshots that I’ve posted over that time that I’ve absolutely failed at properly crediting. While P4 has been very rigid about sourcing, I guess I never felt like I should do that here, but…

It’s my 34th birthday!

I turned 34 sometime around 2 AM this morning. It’s going to be an interesting and crucial year for me. I will be truly on my own, making critical choices that will impact the rest of my life. If the world doesn’t entirely burn by year’s end, of course. :p For everything I can control,…

Happy New Year Art Bonanza

It’s the last day of 2016. Man, I’m so done with this year. To celebrate its end, I’m going to put up a lot of art throughout the rest of the day. Enjoy! …pardon the dated Skies banner art, but it seemed like a decent fit. Just change that to 2017 in your mind, ok?

Happy 15th Anniversary LVLS!

On August 6th, 2001, I put up my first website, Wildcat Online, on Tripod’s services. LVLS came from those humble (and immature) origins, and thus it is the 15th anniversary of this little operation. Hard to believe! Man. It’s come a long way…and yet, in some ways, it has returned to its roots as being…
