Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! This has been a really chill week all things considered, I received some really great news, but I want to wait until next week before I say anything specific. I don’t want to leave anything to chance, by announcing it prematurely…
In other news, my BF took me to this really cool Jazz concert on Friday featuring the Preservation Hall Jazz Band! The concert was a blast and the music was great!! After the concert the band struck up an impromptu parade made up of everyone from the theater. It was so cool laughing and dancing through the streets of DC as the band played on!

- I’ve seen the future of gaming and it gave me motion sickness: Samsung Gear VR-Unboxing & Impressions– So, I got a free Samsung Gear VR headset when I pre-ordered my Galaxy S7 phone earlier this summer.

Okay, so these are actually old updates (I did it a few weeks ago):
I updated the BL Game Review tab (located under Games in the top menu). I added game banners for all main/full BL game reviews, that once clicked will lead to the respective reviews. The individual BL game/individual reviews will remain unchanged for the time being. This is just a test to see if I’ll do the other review tabs like that in the future, so let me know what you think.
I also updated the Visual Novel News tab (under News in the top menu). I added separate drop downs for Announcements/Policy Changes, Sales, Funding Campaigns, and New Releases.
I really want to hear from you guys, let me know what you think of Nice Job Breaking It, Hero. What do you think about the changes? Do you guys like my posts? Is there something you think I should fix or add? Please feel free to let me know here in the comments section, or you can ask me anonymously on Tumblr (just let me know that you’re from WordPress)!
