Nigmabox Rundown (10/5-16/5) I Don’t Care About My Privacy

0 KLK COme at me bro I isn't afraid of anything will duke it out for all eternity great justice is my name asskinking is my gameI finished another semester of college, and probably have a ton more to go through in the future.  My goals were a bit obstructed by improper information, so I’m going to probably end up with a duo of Associate’s degrees for Liberal Arts and Accounting.  Another two years of Accounting at a real college may come next, but from what I heard that may not be necessary.  I can just get a CMA and explore my options with that and a few years of bookkeeping experience.  Also, I realized that I should not buy hormones without talking to a doctor, but that would require coming out as Genderqueer, and, yeah, that would be a super awkward and terrible time that may ruin everything forever… Continue reading

Nigmabox Rundown (03/5-09/5) Sad Land

0 Zvezda Look at this sad little boy and his balls pathetic…I’m just really pissed at myself for so much.  I know, I poke fun at myself for being kinda shit time and time again, but lately it’s been getting worse and worse and I don’t have anybody who I feel I can share any of this shit with.  It’s a pretty sad state of affairs that I thought I had conquered years ago, but I have not, and I truly do not think I will be able to get my shit together… at any point in my life.  So, yeah, video games.

Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim Review

ysnapishtim52If I had to give a brief summary of how the Ys series works in regards to its final products, I would say that the first few titles were more experimental than anything, involving large changes to the gameplay and point of view with each installment before the series hit a sour note with part V, and went away for a generation, only to come back with this title, Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim, and revitalized the franchise for a total of three games before changing up the gameplay once.  I previously reviewed the spiritual follow-ups Oath in Felghana and Origin, both of which I liked quite a bit, but felt that many of the RPG elements of these games bogged it down, and its emphasis on story was a bit out of place in such a frantic high paced and cathartic action game.  This being a prequel, not much has changed.

Nigmabox Rundown (26/4-02/5) Cut Off My Balls, I Don’t Need Them

0 Mayonaka no X Giten cut off your balls because that would be a fun trans girl man woman thing to do masturbateI was going to make a post on NeoGaf about how I spent about 1.5k on games over the past two years, but ended up getting nearly 300 games in the end.  However, I chickened out and could not bare to put my thoughts on a message board, because that is a great way to get murdered.  I also bought a Chromebook so I could type things instead of sleeping while on the train, and am looking into buying some hormones because I should start HRT sooner than later.  It won’t be a full gender transition or anything like that, as I think I’d be the most comfortable being Genderqueer.

Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse Review

maxresdefaultPart of me wonders if I have simply become too bitter towards games over the three years I’ve been reviewing them.  I truly do want to see the good in all games, but my mind is so fixated on the negatives that I end up seeing so many titles I was genuinely interested in and more than willing to love as simply okay.  Even if I am positive towards a game, I often wonder if I was too positive, and gave an opinion that was not accurate to how I truly felt about it.  Plus, whenever I go against the general consensus of a game, I can’t help but wonder if I am wrong for holding such an opinion, and perhaps expressed it far too negatively.  Anyhow, here’s a review of a stealth released PC port of a sequel to a game that I honestly struggle to determine whether or not I think is all that good.

Nigmabox Rundown (12/4-18/4) I’m Hiding From Them Despair Bugs

0 MLM HidingYeah, there will not be a review this week, as no game in my backlog grabbed my attention, and I felt into the Dark Souls New Game+ pit.  I’ll try to get something up next week though.  Cool, thanks, bye… Wait, not bye, because I have a rundown of things that I wanna talk about in the game industry.
