Megadimension Neptunia VII Review

20160723113855_1My thoughts on the Neptunia games should be well documented by now.  From Re;Birth 1, 2, and 3 to U and Hyperdevotion, every game in this series has loads of potential, and could easily be a zany and lighthearted adventure overloaded with adoration for the medium of video games.  Unfortunately, the lack of polish present in these games, and the lack of quality of their content has prevented any game in this series from being greater than being okay.  For over a year, I’ve looked at Neptunia VII as the point where the series would ideally start getting good, where it would ascend to new plains and become a genuinely great series of fun lighthearted RPGs… it almost does.

Nigmabox Rundown (7/17-7/23) Unremarkable Existance

20160718210446_1I really should stop saving these preambles for the last minute, as I seldom ever have something interesting to say about… anything when placed on the spot.  I suppose I could talk about my hormones and job, but that’s a bit private, and I’d rather not divulge every detail about my life.  Unfortunately, aside from my writing, blossoming friendship, work, and the games I play, I lack many things to talk about, as I’m a pretty boring person when you get down to it.

Mass Effect Review

ScreenShot00340So, I’ve been wanting to revisit the Mass Effect trilogy for a while, but I kept putting it off for various reasons.  The vicious opinions surrounding the ending, the overpriced DLC that isn’t included in any bundle, and the lack of controller support.  Although, I managed to remedy the latter using a handy mod.  But with Andromina still a looming enigma on the horizon, I figured now is as good a time as any to start the spacefaring adventure of Shepard the space shepherd.  So I’ll just jump on in.

Nigmabox Rundown (7/10-7/16) Is Anyone Even Paying Attention At This Point?

20160712192121_1I rarely ever have good material to begin these segments with, as they are very disposable, and not very good.  Heck, the majority of Rundowns I’ve done in the past weren’t good either.  This is a segment that, much like every other aspect of this blog, exists solely for my own selfish reasons. Sorry, I’m in the well of despair again, and I’ll surely get out of it for the 178th time.

Love At First Sight Review

20160611213555_1I should probably explain that my goal for this blog for the past six months has been to get one review posted every week, and I’ve been doing my best to curate my game playing schedule to accommodate that.  Unfortunately, sometimes I run into a game that I struggle to say much of anything about, and I spend very little time with before reaching the conclusion, as there just isn’t much to it.  That’s unfortunately the case with Love At First Sight, and I feel sorry for the game because of it, as it really is quite nice.

Nigmabox Rundown (7/3-7/9) I Am Forever Broken

20160706222025_1So, I’ve been doing this for, what, three years now?  I literally just remembered that I needed to post this within the past twenty minutes.  Yeah, let that be a sentiment to how awful I can be at managing my various tasks and assignments, so long as they are self imposed at the very least.  I mean, I never missed an assignment in school, and I didn’t even use an assignment notebook in high school, so why that diligence didn’t transfer over is beyond me.    Continue reading

Zero Escape: Zero Time Dilemma Review

20160704103557_1Well, it’s finally here.  After 3.5 years of anticipation, and a second playthrough for both 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors and Virtue’s Last Reward, the conclusionary chapter of the Zero Escape series Zero Time Dilemma is finally here.  I already spoke of my love for this series, so without further ado, let’s jump right in.
