Quick Review: Digital Seclusion (PC)

CW: Discussion of agoraphobia, depression, and suicide. I think it’s safe to assume that some of us, myself included, view games as more than just entertainment. The gaming medium has a near and dear place in my heart, and many of the games I’ve played have shaped who I am as a person. While I’ve …

Steam Greenlight Landfill: Celestial Crossing (PC)

Well, looks like it’s time to review another no name ecchi visual novel. Much like all the other no name ecchi visual novels I reviewed, Celestial Crossing is bland, uninteresting, and absolutely generic. I am pretty sure I bought this one a few years ago cause it was on sale, and I thought that the …

Quick Review: BRKÖUT (PC)

I’ve spoken about my fascination with meta-horror titles before. Even in cases where these types of games aren’t especially good, they are still at the very least, interesting. For those who are unsure what I mean by “meta-horror,” I am referring to games that lean on the 4th wall, and where the horror at least …

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 …

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: 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 …

Quick Review: 12 is Better than 6 (PC/Switch)

I think it’s safe to say most of us never heard of 12 is Better than 6. At the very least, I heard nothing about this game before playing it. The only reason I even had a copy is because of a Fanatical Bundle from a while back. 12 is Better than 6 waited in …
