Nigmabox Rundown (6/12) E3 2017: I Really Should Have Taken Off Work Today

Trying to follow E3 news while working a very busy job where the only down time I have during lunch is not very fun, and as such I have spent nearly the entirety of my evening catching up to E3 and watching what I missed.  I’m just thankful that Microsoft moved their conference to Sunday, otherwise I would have been writing until I was struggling to stay awake.  Well, more than I am when finally publishing this.   Continue reading

Nigmabox Rundown (6/11) E3 2017: Return Of The Busiest Time In My Life

E3 has begun, and thankfully the duties have been spread apart this year, with the previously mostly vacant Sundays are now being used by two major press conferences.  Meaning that I only have three more to go after pushing out this post right at the cusp of midnight because Bethesda thinks it is good to have a press conference at 9 PM PST.  Also, the title of this post is not a lie.  I do more work per day during the Monday and Tuesday of E3 than I do during any other time during the year.  Especially this year, as I have to work and attend class while E3 is going on.  Anyways, on with the rundown.

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.

Nigmabox Rundown (6/12) E3 2016: Boiling Points of Many Emotions

CookingWith a slew of leaks and early reveals out of the way, E3 has finally begun.  By which I mean that EA is holding an event outside of E3 around the same time.  The ever expanding Bethesda is getting early coverage by going one day before the press conferences traditionally begin.  While Kadokawa games, a growing publisher that isn’t even having a proper press conference, just a private media briefing…  Whatever, that’s good enough for me.

Skyrim Review

never againYou may have noticed that I have made four posts prior to this one about the Nigmabox Adventures With Skyrim, and if you chose to read them you would have seen that I grew increasingly more negative with my gripes out the game, with my irritations rising above all else.  Well, they naturally had to lead to something, and they were, but there is one change I am going to make in contrast with my original plan to beat the game a second time, and not do that.  Oh, trust me, I played the game, I played another 125 hours of it, on top of the 187 hours I originally invested in the title back in 2011.  Heck, it’s partially because of that game that I am here doing this review, as that was the first game I chose to review, and I did so positively.  So, what better way to show how much of a bitter, detached, and overall worse of a person I’ve become my shattering my old praise and bring forth a massive review of my massive amount of time spent with this massive game.

Nigmabox Adventures With Skyrim Hours 66-95

2014-07-10_00019I was originally going to play The Stanley Parable over the prior weekend to give me something to experience than more Skyrim, but no, instead I am here and losing my patience with the game, well, not quickly, as I am at the 95 hour mark right now… God do I wish this game was shorter.
