Standard Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 (PS3/360/Wii/PC/Ios/Android/OUYA)

I have always had a history with the Sonic the Hedgehog series. I grew up with both of the Sonic Adventure titles and I formed a connection with both of them early on. I also was nostalgic for the Genesis games seeing as how I played them through Sonic Mega Collection. I did enjoy games …

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 …

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 …

Standard Review: Clothing & Alterations (PC) (NSFW)

CW: Discussion of kinks and fetishes. Of the many statements I’ve made in my writing career, if I was told I had to choose one specific hill to die on, I’d probably choose the statement that queer people are better at writing erotica than cishet people. And no, this isn’t because I consider it the …

SaDistic Blood (PC): Grotesque Nightmare Fuel (Detailed Review) (NSFL)

CW: Rape, torture, dismemberment, dissection, death, vomit, and all around extreme gore and sexual violence. I can not even begin to list every potential trigger in this game. If you have no triggers, you will after reading SaDistic Blood. The content of this game will be described in detail in the text of this review. …

Maggot Baits (PC): A Masterpiece of Blood and Guts (Detailed Review) (NSFL)

CW: Rape, torture, dismemberment, necrophilia, murder, violence, bestiality, pedophilia, and all around extreme gore and sexual violence. I can not even begin to list every potential trigger in this game. If you have no triggers, you will after reading Maggot Baits. The content of this game will be described in detail in the text of …

Quick Review: Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land (Game Boy)

So, uhhh. Super Mario Land 3: Wario Land is a good game. In fact, It’s in my top three games for the original Game Boy… not that I’ve played many of those. I don’t have many memories of the original system aside from Pokemon Gen 1, so most of what I’ve played for it is …

Majikoi! Love Me Seriously! (PC/PS3): Mixed, Yet Ultimately Satisfying (Detailed Review) (NSFW)

Well, it took me a lot longer to get to this one than I expected. I first started playing this game before Summer, and now it’s almost October, fuck this game took a long time! Granted, some of that time was because I was hospitalized for pancreatitis, but also because the game is fucking long! …

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 …

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, …
