Rundown (6/19-6/25) Trans Styles

20160623180912_1So, I started hormones over this past week.  Specifically on the 23rd, meaning my hormone anniversary will forever correspond with Sonic’s anniversary.  The Steam summer sale began, and it is the worst one by far, as only a single game on my wishlist had a discount over 50%.  I started working on a project with a friend of mine, which will likely manifest into something cool in about a year.  Also, I’m going to be flooded with games over the next two weeks, as Zero Time Dilemma comes out on the 29th, while Megadimension Neptunia VII launches on July 5th.  Golly, I’m going to be ever so busy with all these Japanese video games.

Rundown (5/22-5/28) Awaiting Those Untold Futures

tumblr_mkk7p3JzsE1qeldg8o1_1280So, I just finished my latest writing project, Maple Loves Senpai, and within a short while I will begin working on Psycho Bullet Festival 2: Bury My Children.  And by work on, I mean outline, as I only have loose concepts and idea, a very basic structure, and a rough estimate of the cast.  I hope to get this done in three months, as I will have lots of free time over that time period, but I’m not making any promises just yet.  Anyhow,  time for disposable talk about video game nonsense.   Continue reading

Rundown (5/1-5/7) Don’t Look Into My Corrupted Mind; You Don’t Wanna

PM crime police evil wrong justice hero corruptLet’s see… how to fill up a loosely related introductory paragraph… Oh, I’m almost done with community college before I move onto a real university, which is going to suck since I’ll need to commute into the city, but whatever.  In the meantime, my summer is going to be pretty free, aside from the nonsense that will surely follow coming out to my parents; which I probably shouldn’t be talking about on a public blog, but I don’t really care if the mundane details of my life are detailed to other people.  They probably should not even care, because aside from my self loathing and stream of thoughts that can only be conjured by a corrupted mind, I’m quite boring.

Rundown (1/24-1/30) Time Moves Forward, Nothing Changes

Laxy Nep by GebbyYeah, still not too happy with just about anything in my stupid little life…  Time to talk about the video game industry!  Also here’s the source for the header image.  The artist, Ge-B, is pretty fantastic, and you should check her out. Continue reading

Rundown (9/13-9/19) TGS 2015: Darkest Despair!

0 PL Japan Breasts Woman FanserviceI’m not sure how often I’ve brought this up, but I think that Free to Play games were among the worst things to happen to the industry in recent years, and there have been a lot since I got in this industry’s intestines, mostly the large one, where poop is dried out, around 2006.  But after reading this little piece by somebody who has been getting neck deep in whale blood as his employers tried to manipulate individuals with mental problems for the sexiest thing in the mortal world, Kentucky granola, also known as USD, I feel I have an opportunity that I shall not waste, if only because I love the line and it is mostly true.  Free to play games were a mistake; they’re nothing but trash.  I hope they are outlawed by 2033, when the Great African War begins and half of it is destroyed by a nuclear explosion.  Buy War Bonds in preparation of the war to end all wars!

Rundown (8/23-8/29) pornography_is_destructive.mp3

PornoSo some Japanese company made an Oculus Rift game where you fuck a balloon in a schoolgirl uniform to simulate sex.  Yeah.  That’s honestly perfectly fine in my book.  I’d rather have pronography be very clearly labeled as such while having next to no artistic merit, and simply be shameless in fulfilling the sexual urges of humans.  It’s better than any eroge that dares to have any artistic value, as it is being made for masturbatiory purposes.  I’d much rather have sex scenes in visual novels that you can censor if you enter a code, so it is clear you are playing it for the story… Yeah, this is a complicated issue I should not be addressing in the opening like this.

Rundown (7/05-7/11) Miscellaneous Mildly Angry Grumbling

0 Yamada thanks for fucking everything up you miserable piece of shit fuck off and die in a fire leech on society's buttholeYes, my Punch Line review is still not done, I got frustrated with writing it and recently just finished the initial draft of my novel, Verde’s Doohickey, so I decided to put it off.  Verde’s Doohickey is a story I am aiming to release on August 31st, probably sooner, but I still need to edit those 50,000 words.  I’ll also get a game review out next week, and have been starting therapy.  What have you been doing at the weekend?  I’ve been organizing my stupidly constructed music library I barely touch.  *Dies in a fire* Continue reading

Rundown (5/31-6/06) The Japanese Localization Building-School

0 PGOS Racial Localization Friendship of JapanIn my dumb brain, companies like Idea Factory International, NIS America, Atlus, Aksys, XSEED, Sekai Project, MangaGamer, JAST USA, Carpe Fulgar, and anybody I’m forgetting all work in the same building located somewhere in California.  The building is based off of the one blueprint that was used to build every high school in Japan circa 1950, and it is a complete mess.  With random unlocalized games everywhere, old bootleg VHS tapes of “the hottest Japanimation”, a locker full of PSPs, this one incredibly disturbing classroom filled with full scale figures and body pillows, and dirty laundry that piles up every week until Jimmy clean up their blankets and graphic tees over the weekend.  Then there’s Nana, who is just sad after spending three thousand hours a year playing everything this company produces, and is flat out disgusted by the tropes at this point.

Rundown (4/26-5/02) Cut Off My Balls, I Don’t Need Them

0 Mayonaka no X Giten cut off your balls because that would be a fun trans girl man woman thing to do masturbateI was going to make a post on NeoGaf about how I spent about 1.5k on games over the past two years, but ended up getting nearly 300 games in the end.  However, I chickened out and could not bare to put my thoughts on a message board, because that is a great way to get murdered.  I also bought a Chromebook so I could type things instead of sleeping while on the train, and am looking into buying some hormones because I should start HRT sooner than later.  It won’t be a full gender transition or anything like that, as I think I’d be the most comfortable being Genderqueer.

Rundown (8/17-8/23) Game Journalism’s Rules of Nature

1 Haganai Oh Fuck Yeah!Okay, so a lot of… stuff has been going on with game press, indie game creators, Zoe Quinn having sexual relationships with several men in the press and raping somebody, and the collective society of Angry Young Men… or at least that is what one perspective views it as, due to how there are many, many different ways to view this issue, and I am still at the starting line asking myself, “When the hell was the term ‘Games Journalism’ not something that was openly mocked?”  Well, this whole weeklong… thing has been requiring quite a bit of journalism and investigation, along with allegations of biases possessed by sites, and the repression or threatening of releasing certain information. Continue reading

Rundown (6/29-7/05) 5kYrIM;941N

0KLK Mako is the best also happy girl full of needles so much pain for the joy wrongfully placedSo, in case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been playing a lot of Skyrim, and it has inhaled 80 hours of my life thus far.  My progress is still minimal, and my completionist nature with this game has been effectively screwed by Heartfire, which is an absurdly constructed add-on for the game that was likely designed by the lowest tier of employees at Bethesda, as anything that lets you customize a home, but have no freedom with it aside from choices that cannot be undone, is a no-good piece of crap.
