Stider Review

Strider-2014-Games-WallpaperI’ll just say upfront that I played the game, got to the area before the final boss… or maybe the area before that- point is, I was near the end and quit playing the game as I was not having a good time with it.  That alone summarizes my thoughts about it, but I feel the need to justify my opinions on games in order to have a deviant opinion about them due to my own mental insecurities and sense of loyalty for something I don’t have any investment in beyond how I’ve been doing this too long to give up (I am speaking of the blog you are likely viewing this on).

Rundown (7/20-7/26) Press-Switch

0 Press Switch To The InternetOkay, so following a, well, a year sparse in terms of great games, at least in terms of what I’ve been playing, I both revisited The Walking Dead and visited what I dub the fifth tier of indie games, titles that nobody knows about, have little information given, and are for the majority of the cases, just bad.  Well, that’s where I stumbled onto Press Switch, a Ren’Py made visual novel that is the most overly ambitious and pandering appearing thing that effectively blew me away by offering a barrage of content, and quality stuff at that.  Now, I am naturally bias as I am part of the subset of people who are fond of transformation, gender alteration, and body swapping in terms of fiction, as if you couldn’t tell by reading my novel, The Body of Raiyne.  Yet the fact that I found something that is both a visual novel and a quality one at that is nothing short of amazing.  Downside is that the game’s choices are difficult to track, to the point where a flowchart is necessary.  It is also made from a subset of Japanese visual novels by the name of Bishop, and the creator made sure to use as much as they could from them, including several sex and masturbation scenes, some of which include rape… Yeah, not a fan of that in the slightest.  Still, third best game I’ve played in 2014 after The Stanley Parable and Persona 4 Golden… take that, game industry.

Ducktales Remastered

ducktales-remastered-walkthrough

Let me get this straight, brain.  You wish to play a game that is a remake of one you’ve never previously played… on a system far older than you… based on a show that ended about four years before you were born.  Well Steam Sales are a nice thing that encourages my wallet to ejaculate money, and for $5 I figured the critically acclaimed, I think, Ducktales Remastered would be worth the price.  The quick verdict?  Well, yeah, I guess.

Rundown (1/12-1/18) Monkeys Are in Business of the Busyness

CDI Carrying Random Gorilla of JoySo, I just barely have enough for a post this week, as it is the middle of January and people are still getting back into the swing of things after a holiday break.  I do not have enough time to come up with a creative intro, as I’ve been trying to plow through the insanely large Assassin’s Creed IV.  27 hours in and I’m 39% done.  I like myself a fine long game, but this is utterly nutterly buttery, Ubisoft.  Other than that… screw it, wait for my review of that after Just Cause 2 and Marlow Briggs.
