Standard Review: Saint Maker (PC/Switch)

Another Fuwanovel review is out, this one for horror visual novel Saint Maker. https://fuwanovel.net/2023/04/saint-maker-review/ I was really impressed by this one, and definitely hope to cover some of Yanyang Mobile’s other titles in the future. Anyway, next review will be Neptunia: Sister’s Vs Sisters, which I just recently completed. – If you would like to …

Omori (PC/PS4/Switch/XONE/XSX): Absolute Emotional Horror (Detailed Review)

Currently, I have sixteen games that I plan to write reviews for. Generally, I review games in the order that I play them, because specific memories start to fade over time, which makes it harder to provide a through critique. Omori is number 11 on this list, but I’m choosing to write this review before …

Amazing VGM: Good Morning (Omori)

And it looks like another year is coming to a close, another long, frustrating, arduous year. Oh, and I also played and beat Omori a few months ago. I’ve been planning to write a review of it for quite some time, but I kinda also have a shit ton of other games I need to …

Standard Review: Actual Sunlight (PC/Vita/Switch)

CW: Depression, suicide. Just a quick warning to give to anyone thinking of playing this; this game is absurdly bleak. When I say this, I don’t even mean bleak as in it will make you cry or anything; I’m talking that this game can completely shatter your sense of hope. If you suffer from depression …

Impressions & Commentary: DeltaRune Chapters 1 & 2

Time for a short break from politics to talk about a game that I promised a piece about a while back, but took way too long to get to. Undertale is one of my favorite games of all time, somewhere in my top five at least, and yet it took this long to check out …

Amazing VGM: First Steps (Celeste)

Merry Christmas Eve everyone! The decision to make this piece was a bit of a last minute idea I had while listening to the soundtrack. It just hit me that this makes the PERFECT Holiday themed VGM for this series. And also, I’ve been meaning to get back into the habit of making these for …

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 …

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 …

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 …

Standard Review: SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated (PS4/XONE/Switch/PC)

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom was a 3D collectathon platformer for consoles in 2003. I played it back then because I was too young to know that licensed games usually suck. Battle for Bikini Bottom was pretty damn good though, and it holds up surprisingly well. Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is a …
