Amazing VGM: Blizzard Buffalo (Mega Man X3)

So, we all agree that Mega Man X music kicks ass right? I mean, how can someone think otherwise. I’ve already talked about Spark Mandrill’s theme from the first Mega Man X, but it’s the Christmas err fuck, I mean holiday season, and I am totally being forced to say “holidays” instead of Christmas against my wishes due to political correctness gone mad and not just poking fun at an overused joke. Yeah yeah I know, no one actually cares which one I use except for the easily offended MAGA fuckboys and Trump himself, which makes me want to keep saying holidays in and of itself. Unfortunately even I can’t manage THAT level of contrarianism when I actually do celebrate Christmas.

Anyway, i just put that tangent there because I need enough content before I put the “read more” break in.

Mighty No. 9: Sadder than an Anime Fan on Prom Night (Detailed Review) (PS3/PS4/360/XOne/Wii U/PC)

Mighty No. 9 was a game I had absurdly low expectations for. When it came out, it was hit with several people bashing it over how disappointing it was that this was the result of a 4 million dollar Kickstarter campaign, and how this was supposed to be the spiritual successor to Mega Man. Among the complaints were the several delays the game had, the fact that the graphics were leagues below the quality set by the concept art, and its horrible marketing scheme that insulted anime fans.

The reason I decided to play Mighty No. 9 despite the poor reputation it had was because there was nothing about the actual gameplay to be noticed from these observations, and the fact that these games can often be over hated. I myself often have managed to enjoy games that were otherwise panned by critics and have been adamant defenders of them. As such, I was really hoping that I would find something to enjoy about Mighty No. 9 but that turned out not to be the case.

Detailed Review: Rosenkreuzstilette (Steam)

This is the last review of mine written for Brash Games so every new review from here on out will be written and edited for this site, unless I get hired by a site with actual pay.

Rosenkreuzstilette Review

Also since the person who edited the review for Brash forgot to include a picture of the glitched screen (even though I left a note specifically asking them to include it and the fact that they left a line referring to “the screenshot below” in the published version), I will include it here.

Rosenkreuzstilette | glitched screen

Yes, that’s an actual in game screenshot. “[erka:es],” “Active Gaming”, whoever was in charge of the Steam port, please test Freudenstachel more thoroughly for Steam. I am greatly looking forward to it, but I also don’t want to have the same complaints when I inevitably review it.

Update: The screenshot has now been edited into the review.

Standard Review: Mega Man: Dr. Wily’s Revenge (Game Boy/3DS)

There tends to be a rather disturbing double standard present among gamers when it comes to comparisons regarding modern games and the “classics.” This double standard pertains to complaints regarding cash cow franchises and stagnant sequels. Series like Call of Duty, Dynasty Warriors, and even the recent Nintendo sequels have been looked at with scorn from several gamers for failing to evolve. On the other hand, Capcom released six identical titles in the Mega Man series on the NES only a year apart, and all six of those titles are looked at as classics, and Mega Man 9 and 10 were very well received despite them hardly being innovative. I am not saying I dislike the NES Mega Man titles myself, in fact I thought all of them were pretty solid action games even if they were not that different. The main point I am making is that the Mega Man series was milked to death back then.
