Nigmabox Rundown (10/25-10/31) Sophisticated Sadism, Silliness, Schizophrenia, and Savagery

0 Mari freak on a leash mosnter devil demon destyer bad omen death to all who oppose me welcome to the abyss of dieBecause I’m a complete idiot, I keep on thinking about the design documentation for a game idea that I’ve had for a couple of months.  A sandbox game with destructible… everything, where you play as a schizophrenic shapeshifting demigod who switches between four core personality types depending on how the player wishes to have them act.  What do you do?  Absorb people, disguise yourself as them, cause domestic disputes, and war crimes of just about every caliber as you destroy a futuristic city designed after the late 20th century that automatically rebuilds itself whenever you destroy it, and people respawn.  It would cost millions to make, and as such will never exist.  A body swap centered visual novel, however, that I can probably do by myself if I hire an artist.  Or I could just use Eroge sprites like Student Transfer or Press Switch.  Both of which I’ll review come their next build.

Nigmabox Rundown (8/30-9/05) Metal Gear Anx!ety: Borderline Obsessive Perfectionist

0 SCD Kojima Snake Metal GearMetal Gear Solid V came out this week, and people are unsurprisingly adoring the game.  However, even if I weren’t keeping to my word to not buy the game before September 1, 2017, as to make my claim that I wouldn’t buy the game for ‘years’, I don’t think I’d be that interested.  Quite simply, the base building, open world, and ranking systems all sound like the worst thing you could do with a narrative driven stealth game.  Missions?  Fine.  But ranking and grading systems stir all sorts of bad anxieties inside my butthole.

Nigmabox Rundown (7/12-7/18) 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.

Nigmabox Rundown (6/21-6/27) Mild Mannered Panick

0 Train Panick by chibiibiruSo, the reason why I did not put out a review of D4 this week is rather simple.  I have come to realize that my PC is not as top end as I believed it was when I made it two years ago.  I have been saving up some spending money, and am near my goal of… seeing as how I need to get a new monitor, $1,700.  I mean, it can run D4 no problem, but its framerate is inconsistent and I refuse to tolerate that.  Instead, I made the terrible decision to play Borderlands 2, which I am only going to go through so I can, without a doubt, call it wet hot street trash.  Also, I should be reviewing Punch Line this week, so, yeah, look forward to that, I guess.

Nigmabox Rundown (6/15) E3 2015: I’m a Stealthy little Office Lady!

Vain

You can easily decipher this title, right?

Okay, so, I am working full time this summer, for those who do not know, or just stumbled onto this post, and that means I cannot spend all day in E3 mode.  It makes my nights very hectic, as I try to pick up the piece right after getting home, but I went through Microsoft, EA, Ubisoft, and Sony’s press conferences, amounting to over five hours of footage, while writing up some quick thoughts on the opinions on the video games, as I have been doing since 2012.  Without further ado, I’ll just get right to it.

Nimgabox Rundown (3/22-3/28) D is for Despair, Demise, Death, Desecration, Devastation, etc.

0 DR Welcome to Despair dude you will be sad and upset forever pain and agonyYes, I am sorry that I did not get up my South Park: The Stick of Truth review last week, it’s currently halfway done, and will go up late this week.  JoJo will not be reviewed until the week after, as I find it very hard to watch and properly criticize as it is like listening to a deaf person give a speech, a well written speech, but one that is pronounced so bizarrely that I honestly feel a bit bad listening to it.
