Nigmabox Rundown (4/23-4/29) I Never Played A PS2 Game

Considering I have a website primarily dedicated to game reviews and news, it should probably come as a surprise that I never so much as touched a Playstation 2 with my own hands.  I had opportunities to play the system at a friend’s house when I was a little kid, but I never took advantage of that and instead preferred watching them play.  It is the best selling video game console of all time, was the prominent one during a bulk of my childhood, and the fact that I never did, and likely never will, play a game on the thing just makes me feel like I’m doing something wrong.  Then again, I sometimes feel that way about existing, so I’m probably just a bit of a fool for getting worked up over such a semantic thing.

Nigmabox Rundown (4/02-4/08) Nintendo is Memetic For Their Ineptitude

…I really hope Nintendo’s virtual console service for the Nintendo Switch is better than the dreck I’m dreading it to be.  That is, what it has been in the past, with perhaps some nebulous and obnoxious downside that people expect from the company in the same way they expect a retarded child to make a scene whenever they are taken out anywhere.  Just dump all the ROMs you have from prior systems on the service, make them cost very little, and make them all run well with modern emulator sensibilities.  I mean, people can get all the SNES games on their phones in about an hour, and that needs to be considered when devising a service like this.  Also, make Wii games available for sale, because the Joy-Cons can totally emulate the Wii Remote and nunchuk.

Nigmabox Rundown (12/18-12/24) Yet Another Christmas…

pl-santa-claus-martians-jingle-bells-christmas-wackyWell, it’s finally Christmas, the year is near an end, and I’m unfortunately not feeling very well.  My throat has been bothering me this past week, likely due to an influx of black mold that was present in a place I worked on Monday, and as such it’s hard for me to speak.  Anyways, I hope everyone is enjoying their obligatory familial festivities and receives a collection of gifts to their liking.  I’m probably just going to get $100 to spend on my medical expenses.

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

Nigmabox Rundown (12/7-18/7) A Disgrace to the Glorious Name of Autism

0 Watamote The fuck you talking about porn bikes you neet go get shot you idiot why you existSo, I was hoping to start building a new computer soon, but my mother told me that I should put away 60-70% of my money instead of fifty-something, so that brought my funds down by about $600, so it will take a while to build up the additional $750 or so… I’m going to need to deal with my current computer for a while while trying to maximize my frugalness to avoid feeling a level of despair and inferiority, although I totally deserve that for being a disgrace to the glorious name of Autism.  At least the state of Illinois is willing to pay for my college education and help me get a real full time adult job in a few years ‘cos my Autism is 100% official now.

Persona 4 Golden Review

Persona-4I guess this is where I talk about my history with the Shin Megami Tensei series, as I technically have one.  I watched a playthrough of the Australian version of Persona 3 FES back in 2011, learning of both the plot and gameplay mechanics as I familiarized myself with the flow the sub franchise, which arguably blossomed into a franchise separate from, say, Shin Megami Tensei IV, a very gluttonous game that left me bored in terms of story due to how terrible the pacing was shaped by the frankly unenjoyable gameplay that prioritized grinding above all else.  I gave it 40 hours, if only to justify my $42.  But hey, people praised the crap out of Persona 4, especially Golden and I saw it worthy to get over thrice the playtime.

Nigmabox Rundown (23/11-07/12): That Upset VGX Hangover

Diggers Go To JailYeah, past two weeks have been slowing down, and everything is going to wind to a halt come the post Christmas lull.  With people looking forward to a very fruitful Q1 for 2014, and looking back at the prior year to hand out awards, which I plan on doing along with some work on the actual infrastructure of this blog… I basically did that, apparently.  Now to just finish the draft for Punky & Yuccot: A Post-Apocalyptic Adventure.
