Amazing VGM: Brokentooth March (LISA: The Joyful)

LISA: The Joyful | Dr Yado

Sorry there has been an absence of game reviews and or related content as of late. I recently became rather bogged down with the amount of content to write about that I needed to take a break. If one couldn’t tell, my next review is going to be of LISA: The Painful. I just got done playing it as well as its DLC expansion LISA: The Joyful recently, and I found them both amazing, although I don’t consider The Joyful to be a separate game due to its short length.

Anyway LISA is probably my 4th favorite RPG at this time behind Earthbound, NieR Automata, and Undertale. I really like how it refuses to shy away from a lot of seriously dark subject matter the same way most games do, and I even think it has a lot of advantages over the previous three games I mentioned.

The Absurdity of the “Trans Narcissism” Narrative

Trigger Warning: Transphobia, and lots of it. Also ableism and violence.

Did you know that being a trans person and caring about how you are treated by cis people is inherently selfish? Did you know that when some douchebag calls trans women “mentally ill men with mutilated dicks” that WE are the ones that are selfish for calling them assholes? Did you know that having hatred and contempt for women who literally think our existence is misogynistic and that claim we are a danger to women by nature of said existence means we are abusers who only care about ourselves and fetishize womanhood?

What’s that? That sounds morally disgusting and abusive? Congratulations; you’re a decent human being! Those that take issue with this last paragraph will likely have one of two responses. The first are those that unironically believe everything I just said because they are biological essentialist sociopaths and will then claim it is “proof” of my narcissism. In this case, such a thing is obviously projection due to a refusal to accept a major human rights movement because one would rather believe their own innate prejudiced instincts than have a shred of human decency.

The second and likely larger group are those that think this paragraph is an exaggerated strawman and that they don’t actually think that way. While there are certainly some that don’t even have anything against trans acceptance or inclusion that simply think that most trans activists would consider them transpbobes anyway, I would know since I have met some of them, there is still a sizable amount who will say that the above is a strawman… yet who still believe some variation on the above.

AnnieGal Unscripted #7 Blaire White Leaves Twitter

The short version is that Blaire White deleted her account from Twitter and I proceed to rant about her for a bit while extending and invitation to talk it out with her that she will likely ignore in favor of digging herself further into her own grave.

Standard Review: The Legend of Dragoon (PS1)

This review was certainly put off for quite some time. I should let it be known that I am reviewing this two years after I beat it, but my memory is pretty good in regards to these things. I don’t quite remember why it was that I didn’t write a review at the time but I’m finally going to write it now. The Legend of Dragoon is a fantastic game and quite simply put, it deserves the praise it gets.

The Legend of Dragoon is far from the most original JRPG out there and if you are looking for something unique to the genre then this likely won’t satisfy you. In fact, the game actually had mixed reception at launch. Former IGN reviewer David Smith once said “Games like Legend of Dragoon and Shadow Madness rank among the worst of the previous generation, regardless of genre” only a year after he reviewed it and gave it a 7 out of 10. Yeah, IGN reviewers being incompetent bought out morons is hardly a recent phenomenon. Read more

Steam Greenlight Landfill: Panty Party

Apparently a lot of women hate the sound of the word “panties.” I cannot say that being deprived of my femininity for 20 years made me yearn for the type of shit that most women don’t even care for and thus fucked me up for life. I actually quite like panties. They are much cuter than men’s underwear and… nope, can’t do it. I can’t bring myself to make an opening monologue about panties. Even I have standards after all, plus it’s one of those things that I just can’t really explain objectively; no one can.

Panty Party on the other hand, can be explained. I’ve mentioned more than enough that “OMG Japan is so fucked up” reactions any time a weird Japanese game exists is not only getting old but is kind of xenophobic. The US has a lot of weird shit to after all. However, something like Panty Party could only come from Japan given that there is a much larger fascination with panties among the opposite sex (of those that usually wear them) over there. However, Panty Party is pretty much an example of a shitpost in game format. Read more
