Megadimension Neptunia VII Review

20160723113855_1My thoughts on the Neptunia games should be well documented by now.  From Re;Birth 1, 2, and 3 to U and Hyperdevotion, every game in this series has loads of potential, and could easily be a zany and lighthearted adventure overloaded with adoration for the medium of video games.  Unfortunately, the lack of polish present in these games, and the lack of quality of their content has prevented any game in this series from being greater than being okay.  For over a year, I’ve looked at Neptunia VII as the point where the series would ideally start getting good, where it would ascend to new plains and become a genuinely great series of fun lighthearted RPGs… it almost does.

Nigmabox Rundown (5/1-5/7) Don’t Look Into My Corrupted Mind; You Don’t Wanna

PM crime police evil wrong justice hero corruptLet’s see… how to fill up a loosely related introductory paragraph… Oh, I’m almost done with community college before I move onto a real university, which is going to suck since I’ll need to commute into the city, but whatever.  In the meantime, my summer is going to be pretty free, aside from the nonsense that will surely follow coming out to my parents; which I probably shouldn’t be talking about on a public blog, but I don’t really care if the mundane details of my life are detailed to other people.  They probably should not even care, because aside from my self loathing and stream of thoughts that can only be conjured by a corrupted mind, I’m quite boring.

Nigmabox Rundown (11/29-12/05) NDR3NSEK+TGAPSX

0 DR2 Fuck Yeah alright here we go now get hyped energy to the maxSo, I’m currently replaying Final Fantasy XIII, because I felt I had unfinished business with that game, and I am thoroughly amazed that the creators were able to tolerate their creation.  As a writer, there is so much about this game’s story that drives me nuts, and I cannot believe that 65 million was invested into such a lackluster story.  That, and the gameplay’s auto battle system simply does not work as it is told to-  I’ll save it for the review proper, for now, The Game Awards and the Playstation Experience both happen, so here is a rundown of some of those things.

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.
