Rundown (4/28-5/04) The Reviews Will Never End!

I’m steadily approaching the 7th anniversary of this site’s quaint little existence, and with it over 7 full years of reviewing every game I played for a significant amount of time, amounting to something like 370 reviews in total, only 230 of which are still public.  In that time, I have begun associating the very act of playing a game with the act of collecting my thoughts, writing the review, editing it with varying levels of thoroughness, gathering a sample of the hundreds of screenshots I took, and posting it onto this site where it likely will not garner any real attention, as the only things people come here for are my Press-Switch and Student Transfer reviews.  Or rather my flowcharts.  It has become such a big part of gaming for me that I honestly cannot ever see myself stopping, and even if I did, I would assuredly miss the sense of closure that penning a review provides.  But enough about reviews. This is a rundown, so rundown some gaming news!

Rundown (3/13-3/19) Trans-style Misanthropy

Hanayome wa Motodanshi

Yep! I am still going to post these every Sunday because gosh darn it I really do find pleasure in reviewing the happenings in the video game industry every week and talking about them. It’s fun, cathartic, and does not take up a lot of my time. As such, Rundowns will carry forth for the next… however long. Also, I completely failed to contribute to a conversation for 3.5 hours yesterday, so I’m feeling like a ripe little turd at the moment. Continue reading

Rundown (1/03-1/09) Ha La Mushroom Cha La

0 PGOS Irrepessable Impulse of hyperOh my great goodness to gargantuan proportions, Mark Haynes (Alvin Earthworm) is rebooting Super Mario Bros. Z!  I loved this man’s original work, it was one of my favorite things in the world when I was still toiling around newgrounds in the late ots with my friend, who I think is dead now.  Seeing this man pull himself out of the furry hole and a meaningless existence as a dishwasher is so hopeful, so joyous, and something I will undoubtedly support on Patreon.  Yes, I have a lot of nostalgia for this sprite based fighting series, but I still think it’s amazing.

Rundown (6/07-6/13) PRE3 2015: A Leaky Prelude to Devastation

0 E3 2015Steam Summer Sales started serenely and sadly my selection of specific software ‘s selling-price stayed- screw this shaz.  I keep a list of reservation prices I keep for certain games, which I adhere to well, and there were not a ton of games whose selling price dropped beneath the reservation price.  So far I got Metro Redux and Epic Fantasy Battle 4 because I have some nostalgia for mid-ots Newgrounds.  I will get Momodora III, Dysfunctional Systems: Learning to Manage Chaos, and DreadOut as the sale ends, but will wait to see if there are any dailies.  I set myself a limit of $100 to spend, which is harder because I need to now pay taxes on Steam purchases… Continue reading

Rundown (3/23-3/29) I Want to Find “The Man” and Punch His Face In!

KLK Punch to the face fuck you I do not give a care because I am aweomse and you are the little shit great outfitOver the past year, or I guess 11 months is more accurate, I have been working on a novel that I originally was posting here.  I deleted those posts, edited them, and added about 130 more pages, amounting to 150-ish that I want to put on the Amazon Kindle Market.  Problem is that I do not know my tax information so it may indeed be a while until I properly post it for the dollar I need to charge for it.  I mean, it would be $0.37 if I had my way, but no…  Also, I don’t have any tax forms so expect it to take a while as I figure this shit out.
