When you think of Twitch, what comes to mind? Do you think of Ninja, the proverbial face of the platform? Do you think of Pokimane, a generally laid-back streamer with “an army of simps”? Perhaps a certain vibe comes to mind, one that embodies a laid-back, amateur appeal of some person trying to gather an audience to watch them play games. Any of these things would be correct, as Twitch tends to be a collection of many different things.
A week into November, I found someone with an energy I don’t typically enjoy watching. Energetic, zany, and prone to loud profanities—akin to many old-school YouTube let’s players of yesteryear. Wanting to watch someone play Metroid Prime, however, I took a shot on a hot-shot streamer with a passion for being a Pro Gamer™. That one stream provided me the motivation to come back again (and again (and again (and again))).

I have decided to bring back commentary this year. That’s what you all come here for, right?
SiIvaGunner is a parody account of noteworthy video game track uploader GilvaSunner. Multiple times a day (in infrequent periods), they will upload tracks that take the entirety or a portion of a (usually) game soundtrack and edit it in a way that makes it a joke. Should you need any examples, feel free to look at my 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020 lists. What will be making my list will be the “highest quality” tracks, those that I can listen to unironically as music that makes me swoon, joke or not.
Please note by the big parentheses in the title of this post that this is an annual thing that occurs on this blog that shouldn’t be construed as a be-all, end-all list of the best rips to ever grace SiIvaGunner. This is just my own opinion, and if you disagree, you should make your own list, credit me with inspiring you, and tell me I’m wrong.

What is this, my third or fourth football uniform ranking post? It’s been firmly established that I, who enjoys this violent game of men running into each other for fun, also care greatly for how it looks. No, not the plays, the players. Uniforms, that is. With this upcoming season, which may or may not be played until 2021, a total of seven teams have tweaked or outright changed the overall look of their players’ outfits. I am here to tell you why I like or dislike them, because I enjoy talking visual aesthetic. It’s a passion. Continue reading “Ranking 2020’s 7 New NFL Uniform Additions”
Has this ever happened to you? Starting off that anime ride, you end up devouring at lightning speed, racking up your total anime-viewed count like it’s a drug addiction. Eventually, you start getting a big head, so you rate all of them and start ranking them in a notebook based on enjoyment and objectivity. Then years go by and that notebook is long abandoned. You don’t have the appetite you used to, and all those impactful titles that you used to hold dear are but vague images, dancing in your subconscious. Awful, isn’t it? Such a specifically common occurrence that totally wasn’t just describing me. Continue reading “Top 10 Anime So Good That I Forgot Everything About Them”
Anyone well-versed in meme culture will know the significance of my choosing to watch this film. Well, re-watch, specifically; one can probably guess the reason I watched this several years ago, as well. Continue reading “Day Twenty-Eight: The Wicker Man (MotM 2020)”
Take a look with me at the genres associated with this anime as labeled by MyAnimeList. Ecchi. Harem. Comedy. And the parent source? A light novel. All of these qualities combine to mean one thing, right? That I’m going to hate it. The slop of the anime medium only created to appeal to loser NEETs that get off to having cute girls stomp on them, hiding their true feelings. I’ve made my preferences more than transparent enough for readers to know that this will not be of any interest to me whatsoever. Well… about that… Continue reading “Merry Days of Anime: Kore wa Zombie Desu ka? (Re-Watch)”
