Rundown (06/17-06/23) The Conclusion of Chaos: Part 1

So, this past month has been very hectic for me on account of having had the audacity to take two summer college classes at the same time, which is an undertaking I would not advise anyone to do, as it eats up your time and can be a source of undue stress.  However, I am nearly done, and as such, nearly have my bachelor’s degree, but my educational pursuits will need to continue for at least 2.5 years after that until I can get my grubby little mitts on a CPA license… in 2020 at the earliest.

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 (8/30-9/05) Metal Gear Anx!ety: Borderline Obsessive Perfectionist

0 SCD Kojima Snake Metal GearMetal Gear Solid V came out this week, and people are unsurprisingly adoring the game.  However, even if I weren’t keeping to my word to not buy the game before September 1, 2017, as to make my claim that I wouldn’t buy the game for ‘years’, I don’t think I’d be that interested.  Quite simply, the base building, open world, and ranking systems all sound like the worst thing you could do with a narrative driven stealth game.  Missions?  Fine.  But ranking and grading systems stir all sorts of bad anxieties inside my butthole.

Rundown (5/24-5/30) Old Tech Can Kiss My Butt!

0 SNAFU Youth CHild Kid I am not old enough to understand age this is ancient and out of my rangeSo, Kung Fury came out and everybody was happy with it.  I personally thought it was an energetic and slightly disorganized little romp that knew what it wanted to be, and managed to be just that.  It was an intensive labor of love that will likely not age all that well as the 80s children start dying out, and people wonder why the video quality can be so shitty at points.  I get that it is a throwback to times of old, but while I think VHS tapes are cool and had quite a collection as a youngster, they are pretty crap when it comes to image quality.

Rundown (8/03-8/09) Butts Are Everywhere, I Repeat, Butts Are Everywhere!

KLK Tired of empty claims and endless boasting you are nothing but a pathetic lair so shut up and go to floor suck dick in dirt 1You know what I’ve realized as more Pokemon Mega Evolutions have been coming in?  That Mega Evolutions are not a very useful part of Pokemon.  Yes, they are definitely useful when going up against an opponent while having a Pokemon who can Mega-Evolve, and they do look cool, but comparing that to a proper evolution is like comparing riding on a donkey to riding a jetski.  I understand that some Pokemon cannot be allowed to be as overpowered as Mega Charizard Y, but would it have been so hard to simply give certain Pokemon, especially ones with only a single stage, a new evolution, minus the Mega.  Hell, this is the one time where the word Mega seems to make things worse, as stats aside, it is far worse than any proper evolution.  Regardless, I’m still getting Omega Ruby at launch, well, after I get a new SD card.
