Anybody else think that looks more like Ryan's face than it does Patrick's facial hair?

I thought it was more Insane Clown Posse than anything else.

Thanks for including my Shadowrun review. Didn't think it warranted attention myself, but I'll take it.

Really digging that first one for the morning thing. Also does @alex really have a Hitler stache?

No, it's closer to a goat patch. The image isn't framing their face, it's framing just their mouth area, under the nose.

ZombiePie, I know this is unconventional, but is it okay if I post a photograph of the Valkyria Chronicles art book for the wiki page. I couldn't find any scans (maybe because of copyright issues?). I posted for proof regarding original character design.

List and a blog from me this week. Since it seems half the site (or at least whatever non-hyperbolic small percentage of the site actually follow me) accidentally got sent an email about the latter, it's probably old news by now.

Ness's Mom and Dad are two characters who didn't have pages until this past week, which I found rather surprising.
