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.

Nigmabox Rundown (10/23-10/29) Yare Yare Daze

35Sometimes, I start to lose all motivation for doing this, for writing about video game news, or even reviewing them.  I think it is a self confidence issue, where I assume that the work I put out is bad, that nobody cares for it, and that the entire action is some sort of time wasting activity, even though I do enjoy writing about games at the end of the day.  It’s just that… I don’t know.  I’ll just shut up and talk about the Pokemons.
