Angels With Scaly Wings Review

awsw-1So, I’ve been reviewing games for about five years now, and never did I expect that I would start being given review codes from game developers without asking for them.  This recently happened with a dragon dating sim called Angels With Scaly Wings.  A curious little title piqued my interest when the developers compared it to the Zero Escape series, so I began going through it after making room in my schedule.  Which means this review is going live over a month after I received my review code.  Whoops.

Nigmabox Rundown (2/19-2/25) Murder Your Family For Maximum Power

captureYou know what?  Griffith from Berserk only did three wrong things.  One, care for Guts enough so that he was torn apart over his departure.  Two, rape the princess and steal away the virginity that the king hoped to steal with his musky old penis.  Three, let Guts and Casca live when he could have easily killed Guts and Casca was rendered mentally retarded due to all of the demon rape.  Everything involving him sacrificing his army and family for more power?  That was a rational and well formed decision.  It could be that I forgot some things, as it has been 5 years since I read the manga in full, but I don’t believe anyone who says they would not kill their family when they are unable to so much as lift a spoon to their mouth.

Fire Emblem Heroes Review

fire-emblem-heroes-header-2As Nintendo’s second effort to branch out into mobile game using one of their established IPs, Fire Emblem seems like an incredibly odd choice. While the series saw a rise in popularity after the release of Awakening in early 2013, it is still a very niche franchise for the company, and does not initially seem like the best fit for the platform, as the games are story driven strategy RPGs. In actuality, Fire Emblem Heroes proves to be a surprisingly good fit for the platform, a pretty solid strategy game, and also one of the most engrossing yet frustrating experiences I willingly put myself through in quite a while.

Nigmabox Rundown (2/12-2/18) “S**T Square Enix!” Yoko Taro Said

 

I really have nothing to say for an introduction this week, so here is a video of Nier and Drakengard director Yoko Taro making a plea for people to preorder Neir: Automata by rolling on the floor. Continue reading

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King Review

wvw69kedgxujd8jz2hA few months ago, I reviewed Dragon Quest VII, and after forty hours with the game, my thoughts could only be generously described as mixed.  It certainly made me question of affection towards the series and how I would feel about Dragon Quest VIII, but after playing it for only a short while, I realized that Dragon Quest VIII is something of an antithesis to its predecessor, and I’ve never been happier to use that word.

Nigmabox Rundown (2/05-2/11) Time Travel Is Always A Mistake

tired-link-by-brellom…The Hero is Defeated timeline in the Legend of Zelda annoys me.  I understand the need for a timeline where Ganondorf ran free only to eventually be sealed by the seven sages without the help of Link, but there is an easier way to reach that conclusion.  They could follow the rule of time travel that, whenever something foreign enters a new timeline, it causes that timeline to split off and allows for a new timeline to be created.  So when Link travels to the future, he could end up splitting the timeline just by arriving there.  So in A Link to the Past, the hero could have just never arrived.

Higurashi: When They Cry Chapter 4 – Himatsubushi Review

526490_20170130221745_1Seeing as how I reviewed chapter 3 of Higurashi a mere 2 weeks ago, I don’t really have much of an introduction for this review.  I said a large number of great things about it, and was excited to see how the fourth chapter in this series played out.  So I’m going to cut all pretenses and jump right in.
