Nigmabox Rundown (3/26-4/01) The Fool’s Day Is Rubbish And Cruel

Over the past two weeks, I’ve been picking away at Gender Bender DNA Twister Extreme, and I’m honestly dreading the review I’ll have to write for the game, more so than anything else I ever had to review in the five years I’ve been doing this schtick.  The reason for that being just how bad and good the game can be.  Some part of it are genuinely good, interesting, or funny, while others are poorly constructed, nonsensical, frustrating, or just saddening.  It’s really hard to say anything definitive about any aspect of the game because of this, and I’m dreading how long my review of the game will be when I review it on April 12th.

Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School Review

vlcsnap-2016-11-03-23h33m25s515Upon hearing the news that the overarching story of the Danganronpa series would be concluded in the form of an anime series instead of a third installment, I was more than a little confused, but understanding.  There are a lot of loose ends to tie up, and if it were to serve as a conclusion, a third Danganronpa game would probably be constrained if it were presented in the format established in the two mainline entries, and Spike Chunsoft presumably did not want to change the game’s very foundation for a sequel.  I previously reviewed Danganronpa 1, Danganronpa 2, and the spin-off Ultra Despair Girls, and will be spoiling all of them, as it is hard not to when talking about the story of a direct sequel.

Nigmabox Rundown (10/02-10/08) Too Many Negatives!

20161005001927_1I have been on quite the negative note regarding the game’s I’ve been playing.  Metro 2033 Redux was a far worse version of a game I recall loving.  Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past was a massive disappointment that had me question the entire quality of the series after finishing that review.  MegaTagmension Blanc + Neptune Vs. Zombies is just bad, and I’ll explain why soon, while Sonic 3 & Knuckles is the same infuriating crap as Sonic 1 and Sonic 2.  I really hoping that I can low the next few games on my docket, because I’m tired of all of this upset and all of these negative reviews.

Danganronpa 2: Goodbye Despair Review

20160422204136_1 Coming off the heels of the well received port of the first Danganronpa game on PC, Spike Chunsoft and Abstraction games released Super Danganronpa 2: Sayonara Goodbye Despair.  I originally reviewed the Vita version in 2014, but I like to think that I’ve grown substantially as a writer since then, and I am always willing to support companies, especially Japanese companies, when they support the PC marketplace with awesome niche titles.

Nigmabox Rundown (3/27-4/02) Like A Tsundere… ?

0 20160324175445_1Jeepers am I going to have a lot of games to play this month.  Hyper Light Drifter came out on March 31st, Hunie Cam Studios launches April 4th, Danganronpa 2 is out April 18th, and Double Root: Before Crime After Days Xtend Edition is out sometime this month.  Plus a proper review of Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin should be up whenever I find time to finish that game amidst this chaos.  Seriously, this is the reason why I don’t like buying lots of games at launch.  You need to build your schedule around release dates, get 60% through a lot of games, and then stop suddenly and hopefully get back to it later.

Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc Review

2016-02-18_00036After many requests from people who don’t own Playstation Vitas, and an announcement that there were no plans to port the Danganronpa series to a new platform, Spike Chunsoft decided to bring this beloved little visual novel franchise to the PC market. I originally reviewed the Vita version in 2014, but I like to think that I’ve grown substantially as a writer since then, and I am always willing to support companies, especially Japanese companies, when they support the PC marketplace with niche titles.

Nigmabox Rundown (10/1-16/1) Juicy Neon Buttocks?

0 BTM ButtocksAnother week, another Rundown, another five things I have to talk about because not much has happened.  Lovely.  What should I talk about here?  Well, I’m nearly done editing The Malice of Abigale Quinlan, and it will be released sometime during this week.  Probably Saturday to be honest, as school is starting up this week and the State, who funds my education because I’m autistic, screwed up and did not send a voucher for my books.  So, yeah, that will be a lot of fun.
