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 (5/14-5/20) Oops! I Accidentally Ripped-Off An Erotic Manga

It’s no secret that I take many inspirations when writing my stories, and most of the time the inspiration is rather obscure, and therefore hard to identify.  Even for me.  However, I recently reread an erotic manga by the name of Trans Venus, and realized that I basically copied its core concept for no less than three of my stories.  My Life As Abigale Quinlan, Terrance & Urabe’s Alien Assassination Adventure, and The Malice of Abigale Quinlan.  All of these stories involve a formerly male protagonist who is unwillingly placed inside of the body of a coy and condescending woman with immense powers, and is forced to listen to the woman’s banter throughout the story.  That is basically the core concept behind Trans Venus, and I had no awareness of this while I was writing these stories, as I barely remembered the manga.  Also, here’s the link to the fan translation in case you’re curious.  NSFW warning.

Nigmabox Rundown (3/12-3/18) A Galaxy of Probable Disappointment

So, Mass Effect: Andromeda is almost out, and the consensus from the people who played the game is far from positive.  Apparently the story indulges in many trite tropes and fails to feel distinct while the animations are somehow remarkably worse than the stiff animations Bioware used in their games over the course of the seventh generation, to the point where it is genuinely remarkable anybody thought some of this way okay.  I had high hopes for this game after going through the Mass Effect trilogy this past year, but from the sound of it, the game is not very good.  Though, considering how closed off the development has been, how the lead writer position for the game changed three times, and how many people left the company since the release of the last Mass Effect game, I guess I should not be too surprised.  Still, this is quite upsetting.

Nigmabox Rundown (7/17-7/23) Unremarkable Existance

20160718210446_1I really should stop saving these preambles for the last minute, as I seldom ever have something interesting to say about… anything when placed on the spot.  I suppose I could talk about my hormones and job, but that’s a bit private, and I’d rather not divulge every detail about my life.  Unfortunately, aside from my writing, blossoming friendship, work, and the games I play, I lack many things to talk about, as I’m a pretty boring person when you get down to it.
