Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation (Vita/PC): A Stillborn Remaster (Detailed Review)

Prior to 2014, Hyperdimension Neptunia was a “day one purchase” series for me. The original PS3 trilogy were undoubtedly flawed games, but they had such a powerful charm to them that not only drew me in, but formed a powerful attachment with me as a closeted trans woman. I owe a lot to this series, …

Amazing VGM: Shades of Grey (YOU and ME and HER)

Oh right, I’m supposed to write things other than game reviews occasionally! Sorry, it completely slipped my mind because of how many game reviews I’m behind on. Yes, I’m still behind on those reviews, but I just finished up the Disturbing Video Games Iceberg, so I’ll do something easy between that and my next review. …

Nukige Septic Tank: Futanari Quest (PC) (NSFW)

CW: Discussion and portrayal of incest, rape, and transphobia. Well everyone, I just spent the last week or so suffering from pancreatitis and recovering from having a stone infested gallbladder removed. Needless to say, it has not been fun, and it is a major reason why there is a delay on content. Anyway it’s time …

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 …

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 …
