Nigmabox Rundown (14/9-20/9) I’d Like Some More Game News From Japan, Sir.

281301-SweryFor some reason I thought the Sony pre-TGS stream was TGS itself, but I was wrong.  As my apology, I will provide a depressing fact about myself.  There is no area in my life where I feel I can be myself beyond this blog… yeah.  I am often wracked with insecurities I shove away and ignore, but regularly uncover them and grow incredibly depressed.  Ah well, fuck it, time for video game funtimes!  Also, here’s a picture of SWERY looking silly.

Saints Row: The Third Review

2528915-4853251374-cast.If you put me on the stop at this very moment and asked me what my favorite franchises are in the realm of video games, I would probably ponder and stutter for a few seconds before spitting out Pokemon, Metal Gear, and Saints Row.  The last one is naturally what I’m here to talk about, as while I do adore parts two and four, the first and third parts of this to be pentalogy are far lower on the totem pole of quality in my mind.  While part one is the franchise before it really got its own identity, part three was where the franchise was established, became AAA to a certain extent, and had a staff that was 80% people who did not assist in building this franchise up.  But that was three years ago, and I feel it is worth revisiting… That, and I was in the mood for a game with character creation, and this was the only one on my list of games I own which I ought to play.

Nigmabox Rundown (07/9-13/9) Devouring the Asshole of the Duck Hunt Duck & Dog

0 BTM Buttocks…Is this Quinnspiracy and Hashtag GamerGate thing still going on?  Cripes, I would hate to be alive during a war that had any relevance to most of the world, I would be tired of the bloody concept after a single season.  I understand it is a bad thing, but the internet is great for developing an attention span of a rat, so it is surprising that this issue was not dropped so everybody can start eating the poophole of Smash Brothers.

The Transformation, Ascension, and Degeneration of Terra!

Hello internet!  This is Robert “ElectNigma” Neuman here to talk about his second Novel, The Transformation, Ascension, and Degeneration of Terra!  The synopsis is the following:

A reclusive young man’s life turns upsidedown as he awakens to discover he is trapped in the body of a robot from space.  Join Terrance Honyaku on his adventures of murder and mental trauma as all he wants to do is get out of what he views as a fascinating, but incredibly horrific situation.  Thirty-seven years later, a once beloved idol of Earth awakens to find herself nearly two decades in the future, and a matter of days after a tragic event left every human’s DNA altered as they have become a new species altogether.  Unfortunately her godlike powers have been disabled for the most part, so she needs to bum around with a cherub of a young woman, and a peach pit who used to be a fifty-year-old dick.  But that’s all fluff for the “real” story.  So here’s what I did.  I took this one retarded guy, put his brain in a body that didn’t have any of that retarded stuff, had him cum a bunch in his stolen female bod, have him murder some people, and possibly cause the end of all times.  Does he?  Read and find you, you fucker!  You already opened this up didn’t ya?

The collection of three Novellas is available here for free, where you can download the PDF here or you can check out the GoogleDoc I made where you can view it, download it as whatever the hell you want, and hopefully spread it if you like it.  If not, give me a bit of an explanation in the comments and I’ll try to get you next time, space cowboy. Seriously though, please comment and spread this around!

The Body of Raiyne Reposted!

Hello internet!  This is Robert “ElectNigma” Neuman here to talk about his first Novel, The Body of Raiyne!  A story originally released April 1st, 2014, but has been uploaded once more after a quite frankly shaky launch.  The synopsis is the following:

Raiyne Underwood was a reclusive young woman whose life got turned upside down after her uncle revealed to her that he is a transdimensional monster hunter. Join her in a life changing adventure filled with loss, destruction, and men made of mud! Jad Spencer is a midwestern kid who wakes up in the body of the greatest terrorist the world has ever known… and she’s pretty attractive. Also, he has super powers and is tormented by an electronic pixie bound in leather! While Punky is a childish girl who crashes from space into a post-apocalyptic wasteland where mutants number humans a hundred to one. Witness her adventure with a Lobster-man as the two explore this shattered world and infiltrate the sole bastion of civilization, V-City! All three of these characters share the body of Raiyne and are the protagonists of a self-contained trilogy simply known as, The Body of Raiyne!

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Review

danganronpa-wallpaper-all-charactersDanganronpa’s apparent existence outside of Japan prior to its official release is something that confuses me greatly.  Yes, there was an anime adaptation made three years after the first game’s release, but the original PSP title recieved a fan translation which was apparently something of a major hit with a certain subset of kids on Tumblr.  Maybe I was just not paying enough attention to a title I never even knew existed until Zero Escape’s Director mentioned how he was buds with the Director of Danganronpa, but I guess that does not matter now, as I had a $20 bill I was willing to place into my Vita for a quirky dark visual novel that I expected to be somewhat similar to Zero Escape, but comparing the two is more than a bit difficult after going through the basic premise.

Nigmabox Rundown (31/8-06/9) TGS Was About Two Hours Long

 

0 Watamote Yes Your Ass Stick is still a classic and this is totally awkwardWell, TGS happened and I only really found stuff of interest in Sony’s pre-conference, as Japan is all about those smartphone games, or distractions as most of them are.  Yes, yes, I suppose you could say that of all games, but phone games are made for brief distractions that do not leave any sort of impact other than using unsavory physiological manipulation into tricking people that they are having a good time…. how do I transition this into talking about how Aliens: Colonial Marines is still unravelling its story of lies and making Randy Pitchford look more like a scumbag?  By being lazy.  Yay!
