Nigmabox Rundown (1/29-2/04) Simple and Clean Is The Way

So, I was directed to a three hour unscripted lecture on the story of Kingdom Hearts.  I watched it, and am almost amazed at how much the story resembles the slew of fan fiction that it inspired.  It is the most contrived and convoluted thing I have ever seen go on for this long, and I am convinced that Square Enix lacks any sort of narrative editors and that Tetsuya Nomura should never, ever, be put in charge with the story for anything ever again.  Now all of that incomprehensibility is inside me, and it will never leave.  Anyways, there’s a bunch of news this week for some reason, and now I need to talk about it.

Little King’s Story Review

20160811223016_1Little King’s Story is among my favorite Wii games, and while I technically reviewed this game way back when, I generally look upon my writing during that time in a very negative light, and with a PC version recently coming out, I figured it was as good a time as any to revisit this delightful game, and I’m not too surprised by how I feel about it.

Nigmabox Rundown (7/24-7/30) The World Is A Fart!

Bread Wife by ONATaRTTime for an update regarding my narrative writings!  First off, I am going to revise my two prior novels, Verde’s Doohickey and The Malice of Abigale Quinlan in the ensuing weeks, where I will remove red herrings and things that are distracting to the story or just do not work.  I will also be rewriting one of my favorite story, Psycho Shatter, to better match my current standard of writing.  Now, you may be asking why I am doing this.  Well, my upcoming story, tentatively titled Psycho Bullet Festival: Please Bury My Children, has been encountering quite a few snags over the past few months, and I want to put out something in the meantime.  Plus, I’ve wanted to do these things for a while, and I feel that is as good a time as any.

Nigmabox Rundown (11/10-17/10) Feces Makes The Heart Go Yonder

Press Switch you are a poopy face doo doo head dumb dumb steamy boily feces shit fuck you suckSo, the Trans-Pacific Publishing trade agreement is a big thing this week, and it may affect all media in Japan, Australia, the United States, Canada, and more.  It will increase the already overpowered corporations’ power, is vaguely written, and will exacerbate the problems with copyright laws, laws that have been mangled and mutilated over the past few decades.  You could be deemed a criminal for having the audacity to leak information that the public ought to know about, even if it’s something as simple as a game being technically broken upon release.  Tampering with software files would be illegal, from removing DRM, to fixing games, and potentially even mods, which would be viewed as hacking.  Piracy could be met with the destruction of your hardware and neigh unlimited fines, and this whole thing was written by corporations for it, so why in the fuck would any true human being support that shit?  Seriously, the fact this democratic government would so much as consider this sort of putrid pulsating piece of poo for a second is disgusting.
