Site Progress & Personal Update: June 2021

Whenever I make these site update pieces, I tend to feel either incredibly optimistic, or drained of all my serotonin. For this piece, it’s the latter. Yeah, I’m tired as hell. Between the exhaustive amount of research needed for my Disturbing Games Iceberg, and with how long it’s taking to complete Majikoi: Love Me Seriously, …

Quick Review: After Life – Story of a Father (PC)

Well would you look at me, reviewing yet another game that no one ever heard of. I can hear it now. I just know a whole bunch of people are going to say “why don’t you cover something that people actually care about?” Well, mysterious hypothetical voices I just made up, clearly I review obscure …

Standard Review: Ys I & II Chronicles (PSP/PC/Ios)

I often find myself overwhelmed by the amount of well known JRPG series I still need to check out. Given that I haven’t even beaten every mainline Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, the idea of jumping into another long running series is a daunting one. But hey, I’m finally reviewing a Falcom game, so that’s …

Top 5 Games Reviewed On Guardian Acorn in its Fourth Year

Well shit, Guardian Acorn’s 4th birthday just passed! I’m still quite in awe that this experiment of mine has lasted this long, and I’m hoping that it continues to last. And now comes the tradition where I take one last chance to talk about the best and the worst games I reviewed this year. Okay …

Quick Review: Escape Castle Death Loop (PC)

Escape Castle Death Loop is a strange game. This game started out as a simple creation for the dev’s son to play around with, and over time, he added more and more stuff to it. After spending 100+ hours on adding new stuff to this game, developer Thomas Bellissimo decided to create a Kickstarter for …

Site Progress & Personal Update: May 2021

Another month has passed, and I have been successfully keeping up my schedule of one piece a week. I am pleased with the fact that I’ve been able to make significant progress with my work, and have a steady flow of content. I currently have all of my reviews up to review number 200 planned. …

Steam Greenlight Landfill: Neptunia Shooter (PC)

It’s well established at this point, that I’m a Hyperdimension Neptunia fangirl. I owe a lot to this series. I’ve said before how I felt an affinity with this series as a socially isolated, closeted trans woman. The original Hyperdimension Neptunia was one of the key reasons I bought a PS3. Yes, that low budget …

Nekopara Vol. 4: The Best One Yet (PC/PS4/Switch) (Detailed Review) (NSFW)

It has been almost six years since I reviewed Nekopara Vol. 1. The first Nekopara was the first eroge that I ever played, and it set the standards for what I expect out of the genre. With how much I’ve gone through and changed the past few years, it’s always interesting to come back to …

Steam Greenlight Landfill: Beach Bounce (PC)

Beach Bounce is the 4th Dharker Studios title I have played. The previous three were, Highschool Romance, Echo Tokyo: An Intro, and Negligee. The former two were fairly forgettable, and the latter was genuinely good. It’s probably safe to assume Negligee was good because Dharker Studios had a bunch of previous attempts. Beach Bounce was …

Steam Greenlight Landfill: Tokyo Hosto (PC/360/Ouya)

Tokyo Hosto flat out baffles me with its level of badness. As I am reviewing this, I am currently struggling to put into words how insulting it is that this game exists. It is insulting in the sense that it expects any gamer to enjoy this, in the fact that it expects people to pay …
