Rundown (12/04-12/10) A Mostly Two Tone Rundown

vlcsnap-2016-11-13-11h59m13s766Seeing as how Final Fantasy XV has released to high praise from critics and fans alike, I got to thinking, when was the last time a Final Fantasy game was universally beloved and saw wondrous success?  Well, the answer I came to is Final Fantasy X, a game originally released in 2001, 15 years ago.  Since then, the series never had a wholly beloved mainline release, and modern entries steadily fell into mediocrity and mockery after experiencing the height of its popularity.   Continue reading

Rundown (11/08-11/14) Growing Up is Hard

1 P4G I need an adult becoming grown up no longer a child think of the kids youngsters little onesNeptunia Re;Birth3 is taking forever because it is a Neptunia game and twice as long as it needs to be.  Meanwhile, I have yet to touch Student Transfer, and now Higurashi Chapter 2 is out.  I would start binging, but I have two papers due next week, and I need to work on a group project in addition to my next novel, so I’m a busy little buckeroo.  I also want to buy my new computer parts soon, build it, and get my new PC all ready, but that may need to wait until after this semester… when I’m working full time for a month.  I also want to come out as transgender, but am so terrified of worrying my poor mother that I feel I can’t.  Also, I’m turning 21 on Wednesday.  Growing up is hard!

Rundown (3/29-4/04) Fetal Position

0 HeroJob You Should Really pay attention to people and not hide in the sink you weird listen out of your bubblrSo, there is very clearly something going on with Zero Escape 3.  I did not bring up the countdown website as nothing had happened, but it has recently updated and Kotaro Uchikoshi tweeted out some cryptic numbers, which when gven their letter value turn into FNJANUUVNWXOXDAFXAM and KYVCFEXVJKEZXYKNZCCYRMVREVEU.  When put through a Caesar Cipher decryption, which involves the letter value being shifted by a set amount, 17 for the first one, 9 for the second one, you get the messages WE ARE ALL MEN OF OUR WORD and THE LONGEST NIGHT WILL HAVE AN END.  You know what that means?  Ever 17’s getting a re-release, and the previous two Zero Escape titles are coming to PC along with part 3… I know I got that wrong, but a girl can dream, can’t they?

Rundown (9/14-9/20) I’d like Some More Game News from Japan, Sir

281301-SweryFor some reason I thought the Sony pre-TGS stream was TGS itself, but I was wrong.  As my apology, I will provide a depressing fact about myself.  There is no area in my life where I feel I can be myself beyond this blog… yeah.  I am often wracked with insecurities I shove away and ignore, but regularly uncover them and grow incredibly depressed.  Ah well, fuck it, time for video game funtimes!  Also, here’s a picture of SWERY looking silly.

Rundown (8/31-9/06) TGS Was About Two Hours Long

0 Watamote Yes Your Ass Stick is still a classic and this is totally awkwardWell, TGS happened and I only really found stuff of interest in Sony’s pre-conference, as Japan is all about those smartphone games, or distractions as most of them are.  Yes, yes, I suppose you could say that of all games, but phone games are made for brief distractions that do not leave any sort of impact other than using unsavory physiological manipulation into tricking people that they are having a good time…. how do I transition this into talking about how Aliens: Colonial Marines is still unravelling its story of lies and making Randy Pitchford look more like a scumbag?  By being lazy.  Yay!
