Amazing VGM: Emil’s Theme (NieR/NieR Automata)

NieR is always going to have a special place in my heart. The original and its sequel Automata were the first two games to be reviewed on this site. Granted, neither of them were originally written with this site in mind and this was mainly because I had just put out the review of Automata …

Response to Meghan Murphy: If Gender Critical Feminists Truly Cared About Empathy, They’d Show the Same to Trans People

TW: Mentions of transphobia, misogyny, suicide, violence, emotional abuse, I would like to open this piece up with a reminder about the content that I write. I don’t like writing pieces that merely restate opinions that are already commonly expressed. I’m never the type to merely preach to the choir; I instead prefer to write …

Amazing VGM: Reunited (Undertale)

Note: This article was originally posted as a DeviantArt journal entry on December 30th of 2016, and has been revised and edited. I add this to make not that 2016 for me, like many others, was a very depressing and soul crushing year. I played Undertale for the first time at the start of the …

Splatterhouse Retrospective #1 Splatterhouse (Arcade/TurboGrafx-16/IOS)

TW: Violence and… oh fuck it, I’ll let the cover of the Turbo-Grafx 16 version speak for you. This last October, I bit off a bit more than I can chew with the planned Halloween themed content. My initial plan was to review both Euphoria and Sweet Home within the month of October, but I …

The Death and Return of JRPG Update

JRPG Update is back folks… sorta. In order to make things easier on myself, I decided that some revisions needed to be made to how I would handle things, simply because I was overloaded the way that JRPG Update worked before. I tried to post weekly updates by covering as much JRPG related information as …

Detailed Review: South Park: The Stick of Truth (PS3/PS4/360/XONE/Switch/PC)

Trigger Warning: This review contains references to racism, anti-semitism, and forced cross dressing. The game itself contains depictions of the above in addition to gore, nudity, scatology, sodomy, abortions (performed on a man), miscarriages, and Nazis (of the zombie variety). Just looking at the creation process of South Park: The Stick of Truth, it is …

Amazing VGM: Holding My Thoughts in My Heart (Final Fantasy VII)

Welcome to this week’s VGM. I have decided that I would go with something that is from a game especially nostalgic to me, Final Fantasy VII. Of course, I’m never one to go with the predictable tracks like “One Winged Angel” or “Aerith’s Theme” or even slightly less common but still talked about tracks like …

RPGs of the Famicom: Sweet Home

If you live outside of Japan, you likely don’t know of many JRPGs prior to the 16 bit era. Hell, you may not even know of many DURING the 16 bit era either. Until Final Fantasy VII popularized the genre with its cinematic CG cutscenes and enormous marketing budget (not that the game had no …

Amazing VGM: Voltage (Megadimension Neptunia VII)

Holy shit, how the fuck did I stay away from this series for as long as I have? I actually don’t know if I have even written about Neptunia for this blog yet, although I have mentioned it plenty of times. I absolutely adore this series, and seeing someone bashing it for being nothing but …
