Thank Goodness: 2015 Is Dead!

HeroJob It Looks like brains were yanked out this is random and should not be happy awkward shitYeah, this year was really not very good for me.  There was a lot of self loathing, depression, and general bad feelings all around, and on top of everything, I really did not beat a lot of video games.  A total of 29 game reviews went out this year, due in part to there not being a lot of games in my library that I really wanted to play, or games that I could not play very well with my hardware.  I hope to get to more games in 2016 than I did in 2015, but as is customary, here are my top… 4 games I played for the first time in 2015, listed in the order in which I played them.

Punch Line Review

CoverThe more I think about it, the Zero Escape series is one of the biggest influences I had to start writing proper stories and developing whatever odd idea that popped into my head into a short story, novella, or novel.  It’s been almost three years since I started, and I feel that I have gotten far, far better at writing, storytelling, characterization, plot outlining, and so forth.  Sure, no one really gives a toss about my work, but I’m enjoying it and am doing exactly what I want to with a story that I hope I do finally put to bed, once and for all within the next few years… Anyhow, the writer of Zero Escape, Kotaro Uchikoshi, wrote this anime, I watched it, and here’s my thoughts on it in the form of a review.

Nigmabox Update 4/01/2015: No Jokes, Just Updates

1 DR Bored now going to get on with it next here we goAlright, as I am writing this I am just getting over a lump of depression and inferiority, which has technically been bugging me my entire life, but it has sprung up, I dunno, at least twenty times this year alone, which is probably not healthy, but so is having such shit output for the past quarter.  That’s a fourth of a year and I’ve got 60 years left, so I basically just wasted .5% of my remaining life force, like an idiot… Okay, maybe the depression has just manifested itself in another form, but onto what I want to discuss… in something that is indeed going up on April First, but is not a joke in any way, shape, or form.

The End Of 2014 Post

KLK Cute fun happy times with an elephant and bath swim time joy adorableSo, this year ended on a very busy note for me, hence why I have not been posting as much as I would like to.  I’m basically working full time for a month, have an hour commute each way, and basically run off of six hours of sleep.  Still, was this year good for me?  Yeah, I released seven novellas!  I thought two of them were crappy, and the rest had issues stemming from my lack of experience writing stories.  But this post is mostly to call out the games I played and loved this year, which really are few in number.  Yes, I enjoyed plenty of games, but those I loved, properly adored to a certain extent, were small in numbers, to the point where I lack ten.
