Rundown (8/11-8/17) My Game Collection Fits In a Shoebox

I often stumble onto musings from gaming enthusiasts who boast about their collections or hem and haw about physical clutter being an annoyance.  I’ve been playing primarily on PC since 2013, so I don’t have much of a modern physical library, and I have long since given up any aspirations of keeping a presentable collection and chucked my games in assorted cases and disc binders years ago so they consume less space.  Now everything roughly fits inside a shoebox! I still have the cases mind you, mostly in the event that I choose to sell off parts of my collection, which I would be willing to do, since I’m never going to hook up and play something on any of my older systems, but that would require actual work.

Rundown (6/02-6/08) PRE3 2019: Hustle and Bustle

Gather your things, ready your streams, call off of work assuming you can, make a bunch of snacks, and get foked my sweet little chickpeas!  Because it is that marvelous time of the year where all the video games happen at once, meaning that nobody who likes video games is actually playing video games, and they are instead yucking it up on their internets, wallowing in the succulent juices of hype that encapsulate the industry many times in a given year, but never quite this intensely or fervorously!  Or in other words, E3 is starting in a few hours, so I probably should go through the news that came in the past week or so. But not the many leaks, since that’d just be redundant, yo!

Darksiders Warmastered Edition Review

“Natalie, why do you do this to yourself?”  Do what to myself, voice in my head?  “Why are you going back to a game that you remember disliking when you played it 5 years ago?”  Because I always felt that I should actually like this game, and wanted to give it another shake.  “Even after re-reading your original review?”  Well, I tried to.  My writing was just awful back then.  “You know, you sometimes have a really bad tendency for self-destructive behavior.”  I know voice in my head, I know.

Rundown (4/30-5/06) Which Breath of the Wild Dub is the Least Worse?

One of the more upsetting things for me about Breath of the Wild, at least conceptually, as I have yet to play the game, is how there was no option to change the spoken language of its characters without also changing the in-game text.  It is a petty thing, but I never associated the denizens of Hyrule as being English speakers, as the snippets of Hylian featured in prior games did not sound like English.  I bring this up because the ability to change the spoken language was added with a recent patch, but now I need to figure out which dub sounds the best, or the least worse.

Rundown (5/11-5/17) The Life Is Not a Thing Anybody Needs

0MAri we are both human so it is okay you crazy girl why is everythign so awkward and weird fuck this noise in pussy holeIt is three weeks before E3, I am starting a job with my mother where I need to get up at 6:30, and have several others I may pursue.  I am playing a ton of P4G, current 75 hours in, and am still trying to get some content up regularly despite having nothing prepared or planned aside from a cynically written Castle Crashers review I do not want to finish, as it sucks.  Life is pretty good for me as a whole and I am actually making progress in part two of my three part novel.  Oh, and just as a note, do not expect an anime review this month, as P4G is enough anime for me… God, my review of that game will be four pages at this rate.  Oh, and I had to film a bunch of children to get $60, so I am tired as I am posting this… thing.
