Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Mar. 12th to Mar. 18th

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! Daylight savings time was this week, so we lost an hour of sleep… I think… I always get confused with all these time changes, but, I was much more productive this week than I was last week. I actually managed to work on a few posts that have been sitting in my drafts for awhile! But, mostly I’ve just been rolling with the punches…

Oh, remember when I said I’d go exploring since I had the whole week off of work… well, that didn’t happen. Instead I spent the first half of the week playing a game and the second half alternating between watching the Twitch Power Rangers marathon and Marvel’s Iron Fist…  But, I’m supposed to go exploring later on today, so it wasn’t a complete bust! 😛

  1. Melanin Monday: Six Sensational Black Superheroes You Should Know– I wound up continuing Melanin Monday as a bi-weekly post series!! So, for this week’s post I decided to cover six Black superheroes! I tried to choose heroes that most people wouldn’t be immediately familiar with…
  2. Let’s Show Our Support for Your Royal Gayness – The Ultimate Fairytale Parody Game– I’m back with yet another Kickstarter campaign, that I stumbled upon last week, and while this isn’t just a visual novel in the traditional sense, the unique LGBTQ themed story definitely reflects the ideals and values of the developers! I’m talking about the upcoming PC LGBTQ themed visual novel/resource management game Your Royal Gayness from Lizard Hazard Games!
  3. Thrifty Gaming: Games That Won’t Blow Your Budget #11– This is the post where I spotlight three visual novels for gamers on a budget. Every game featured is priced $10 or less, so definitely check out this week’s thrifty picks!!
  4. Fangirl Moment: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers– So this week I’m feeling a bit nostalgic, what with the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers film reboot coming out next week and the Twitch MMPR marathon going on right now, I’m in full blown Power Rangers mode!

under-construction

I’m giving the ol’ blog a bit of a facelift; updating tags, menus, etc… So, for the next couple of weeks expect some minor wonkiness. Nice Job Breaking It, Hero will be up and running during the fixes, but, don’t be alarmed if stuff moves around a bit!

Most Recent Updates

  • I made the Contact page a separate tab on the top menu.
  • Renamed the Ramblings tab in the top menu, Mixed Bag.

Since I reached 300 Followers a little while ago, I figured it was about time I fixed things up a bit. There will also be a special announcement once everything is finished up, so be on the look out for that in the near future!


March Megane Madness

I probably should have announced this sooner, but what can I say, I’ve been busy… *ahem* It’s no secret that I’m weak to megane men, there’s just something hot about a man in glasses that really gets my blood pumping! Ray Bans, dark frames, wire frames, bifocals, trifocals, fashion lenses, *fans self* I love them all! So I wanted to share that love with you guys in a month long megane celebration.

Throughout the month of March I will be paying tribute to all the megane hotties out there with semi-daily megane themed posts and reviews!! Ya’ll have heard of March Madness, well here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero it will be Megane Madness Month!!

Affiliate Links

Well, I finally broke down and signed up for some Affiliate Program so that I could possibly make a bit of cash doing this blogging thing. The way affiliate programs work is that I earn a small commission on any products you all buy using my affiliate links.  Right now I’m enrolled in Affiliate Programs for Amazon.com and MangaGamer, so expect affiliate links to show up every so often in my posts in the near future. I will let you all know in advance if a post contains any affiliate links and I will update my sidebar with links to specific games and products.

The third OWLS Blog Tour is underway, March’s topic focuses on Sanctuary!

A sanctuary is a place of safety and stability. In anime, there are several different places and environments that characters call “home.” For this topic, we will be discussing various locations and settings within certain anime series.

Each OWLS member will be uploading their individual posts throughout the month of March! This week’s Blog Tour guides were Rai (Rai’s Anime Blog), who wrote about the sanctuary in ChuunibyouArria (Fujinsei) who wrote about sanctuary in One Piece, crimson613 (My Fujoshi Life) who wrote about sanctuary in Skip Beat, and Stephanie (Anime Girls NYC) who wrote about sanctuary in Watamote!

There is just plenty of Blog Tour Stops coming your way this month so be on the look out for announcements on the Official OWLS Twitter @OWLSbloggers, where we will keep you guys updated on each of the upcoming posts and other OWLS news!


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 this change? 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 use this contact form!

pretending to write

It’s been forever since I had an actual schedule, so this is as weird for me as it probably is for you guys…

I finally finished my first route in SakeVisual’s Backstage Pass, so expect a First Thoughts Review on Monday!!

There are a ton of new Kickstarter campaigns launched this week, so expect write-ups of those throughout the week… and I mean a lot of them!

I’m also working on another demo review, but since those take me forever and a day to write, I make no promises that it’ll be out this week, I’ll try, but again no promises…

Thrifty Thursday will go up as scheduled with three brand new thrifty gaming picks for you all to try and for Fangirl Friday I’m going to cover a… I don’t know yet, let’s just see how this week goes shall we!

**It’s the fourth week of the OWLS Sanctuary Blog Tour is underway, with posts from LynLyn (Just Something About LynLyn), Erendira (Sakura Daisuki), and Hazelyn (Archi-Anime) coming out on Mar. 20th, 22nd, and 24th respectively.**

Since I’m so behind, I’m just going to go ahead and extend the poll until the end of the month… What kinds of posts should I write more of? The poll will be open until… I figure out what I want the next poll to be!  You can find it in the side bar (or if you are using a phone/tablet @ the bottom of the page). If you still can’t find it, click the link HERE! I look forward to your responses!
