Quick Review: Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures (PC/3DS/WiiU/Switch/PS4/XONE)

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures is a game that is a lot more unique than it looks. While it may look like just another retro style action game attempting to cash in on retro nostalgia and fans of the web series; it also takes a rather unique approach to its design. Specifically, it manages to …

Deadlight (PC/360/XONE/PS4): Dead on Arrival (Detailed Review)

Deadlight is fucking terrible. I am making sure I emphasize this right away so that no one makes the mistake of assuming this wretched pile of filth has any merits. Deadlight is so bad, that I’m writing this review immediately after playing it, just to make sure that I remember every maddening detail of it. …

SpongeBob SquarePants: The Cosmic Shake (PC/PS4/PS5/Switch/XONE/XSX): Battle for Bikini Bargain Bin (Detailed Review)

If I had a nickel for every retro throwback 3D platformer that was based around time travel, that made my most anticipated games of 2023 list, and ended up mediocre and disappointing, I’d have two nickels. I don’t know why someone would give me two nickles for two games existing though, it’s not like I …

Clive ‘N’ Wrench (PC/PS4/PS5/Switch): Bargain Bin Banjo-Kazooie (Detailed Review)

So, I like 3D collectathon platformers a lot, and this was number nine on my most anticipated games of 2023 list. It did not live up to the hype. Reading some parts of that piece are especially painful after having played through this game all the way. “It DOES look like it nails everything there …

Neptunia: Sisters Vs Sisters (PS4/PS5/PC): Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back (Detailed Review)

Recently, I’ve decided to try something new with my reviews, a little thing called “playing and reviewing games within the year they are released.” Of course, I can’t review every game I’m interested in within a specific year, so I decided I’d focus on my picks for most anticipated games of 2023. And yes, Neptunia: …

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 …

NieR Replicant ver.1.2247448713… (PS4/XONE/PC): Absolutely Breathtaking (Detailed Review)

So, it’s been almost six years since I wrote my review of the original English release of NieR Gestalt, released as just NieR on the PS3 and XBox 360 in 2010. Given the lavish praise I heaped upon the original game’s story and upon Automata as a whole, the only question is why I didn’t …

Parasite Eve (PS1): Engrossing, but Frustrating (Detailed Review)

One aspect I will never understand of JRPG fandom is the intense hatred towards Square Enix lately. Well I suppose it is a given that there will be something stupid that comes out of any large enough fan base but still. The thought process of the player base of Squaresoft games is that supposedly “Squaresoft …

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 …
