Nigmabox Rundown (01/7-01/13) Livin’ The Trans Life

So, for the past two weeks I have been presenting myself as female whenever I go out, and doing so had felt rather.. odd to me.  On one hand, I feel as if I am doing nothing different at all, seeing as how I started feminizing my voice years ago, and started altering my walking patterns several months ago.  It truly feels as if I am doing nothing different as I was when presenting myself as male, except now I have a feminine, if swollen, face, and my hair is a bit longer and nicer.  I guess you could say the change does not feel as massive as I initially thought it would, but that’s okay, considering I am more comfortable with myself than I have been in many, many years.

Nigmabox Rundown (12/10-12/16) Let The Hiatus Begin!

On December 16th, I underwent facial feminization surgery.  Due to the intensive nature of the procedure and prolonged recovery time, this site will be entering a hiatus effectively immediately, lasting until sometime in mid-January, likely January 17th, 2018.  Until then, the only thing I will post is a pre-prepared end of year post.  I never wanted to pull a hiatus like this, but I sort of need to for recovery purposes.  So until then, I’ll see you all later.

Nigmabox Rundown (11/05-11/11) Sonic Team Made An Oopsie!

Over the past week Sonic Forces came out, and the general reception of the game has been… pretty darn poor to be honest.  From criticisms levied towards the barren level design, a story that does not properly take advantage of its premise and characters, and various underlying gameplay/technical issues that make the game less refined than Sonic Generations, which came out six years ago.  It is a genuinely confusing state of affairs, especially because of how much time Sonic Team has had to invest in this game.

Nigmabox Rundown (10/15-10/21) A Master No More!

Over the past few weeks, there has been a distribution going on for the new legendary Pokemon, Marshadow, which was distributed at GameStop in the United States.  Unfortunately, I missed my chance to visit one to get the mode needed to get the new Pokemon and preserve my complete Pokedex.  Why is that the case?  Well, I am not very mobile on my own (I cannot drive) and the task of asking my mother if I could stop by one of these stores was a bit too much for me, what with my social anxiety and such.  I downplay it a lot, but my social anxiety and poor social skills makes it genuinely hard to do even basic tasks.  I feel awkward so much as saying hello to someone unless they greet me first.

Nigmabox Rundown (6/14-6/17) E3 2017: The Psycho Wars Shall Return

Well, the week has passed and E3 2017 has ended, and before I know it, it will be E3 2018 and I will be doing this whole shebang all over again, except then I will be further along in my transition and be far more pretty.  Normally not much news comes outside of the press conferences, but there were enough stories to justify a traditional rundown, so I’ll just get started.

Nigmabox Rundown (5/28-6/03) Natalie Avoided Wasting A Bunch Of Time!

So, I did not talk about this last week, but I played a bit of Fallout 4 recently thanks to it being free to play for a limited time window.  I was curious about how I would feel about the game, seeing as how I was very critical of it before release, and after spending 4 hours with it, I feel that I was completely right to think that.  The protagonist is severely limited by the inclusion of voice acting and a backed in backstory, the dialogue options are very poor at conveying the protagonist’s response, and the story begins with such a rapid and dramatic set-up that it all rings hollow.  Then there are the overburdened crafting and town building elements that I know I would have invested 100 hours into if I played this game properly.
