Student Transfer 2.0 Review

screenshot0195About one year ago, I reviewed Student Transfer version 1.4.  It quickly became one of my my popular posts of all time, seeing as how the post talked about a very obscure and niche game that was pretty much only talked about in its own forums and online message boards.  When combined with the fact that I really enjoyed my time with the game, it’s only natural that I would revisit this visual novel centering around transformations, body swapping, mind control, possession, and more.  But first, a bit of backstory.

Nigmabox Rundown (1/01-1/07) Much Ado About PC Ports and Little Else

20161018200242_1Seeing as how Nintendo will be unveiling a whole lot of information about the Switch next week, there really have not been that many announcements made this past week, or a lot that I consider to be worth discussing.  Well, other than PC ports, which I will always go out of my way to talk about as it is something that pretty directly benefits me, as it increases the library of games I can play on my platform of choice for the past 3.5 years.

Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight Review

20161226203425_1How to best begin… I guess with a history lesson.  Momodora is a series of action platformers that have been released since 2010.  They gradually grew from a series of freeware games into what is seen here with the fourth entry in the series, Reverie Under the Moonlight.  I personally have only played the third game, and I barely remember doing so, but it left enough of an impression on me to gravitate me towards the latest entry.  Which also happened to quite noticeably influenced by the Souls series, to the point where I saw people lovingly refer to the game as MomoSouls.

The End of 2016!

p4g-fin-the-end-goodbye-forever-i-am-done-with-thisSeeing as how the year is at its end, it is time to look back and assess 2016.  There were some real bad things that happened throughout the past 366 days, most of them relating to the world at large, but the year did have some high points, at least for me.  I started my gender transition, met my significant other, put out a novel and novella, started attending a real college, and started a new better job.  I also reviewed over fifty games this past year, many of which I loved, and I feel it is appropriate to summarize and celebrate my favorite special treats I’ve indulged in throughout 2016.   Continue reading

OneShot Review

420530_20161216173504_1OneShot was originally developed as an RPG Maker 2003 title released in 2014, where it garnered a decent following as far as I can tell.  To the point where the creative team behind the game chose to remake and remaster their work for a retail release, complete with an updated game engine.  With that backstory out of the way, I should begin by stating that I consider myself to be friends with Eliza Valesquez, one of the developers of OneShot, and she graciously provided me with a code for that game.  I will try to be as impartial as can be with this review, but it’s best to disclose these sort of things right away.
