I have a theory about Nier (in the Gestalt flavor, at least): Square Enix and Cavia had to decide between making the game visually attractive or making it sound like a heavenly cacophony. They decided this fate with a simpl...
Instead of getting a press release from publisher Eidos glorifying their upcoming Batman game Arkham Asylum as the pinnacle of all multiplatform gaming experiences, we're greeted by today's Kotaku offering:

One of my favorite parts of Saints Row 2 was the in-depth character customization. It's one of the reasons I chose it over GTA4 [note: pasty Russians are pasty]. There was one very special piece of virtual clothing missing wh...
I could've sworn that upcoming post-apocalyptic racing extravaganza FUEL featured weapon-laden vehicles. This important tidbit remains unconfirmed, even as I scour the intertubes in search of some hint of its existence. Witho...
Volition's answer to my insatiable hunger for fresh Saints Row 2 DLC appears to consist of...two purple bandanas. Gaze in abject awe at their undeniable blandness.
Despite the fact that their first wave of DLC didn't qu...
My emotionally high-maintenance cat decided the best way to wish me a Merry Christmas was to drop two of my DVD/video game-heavy aluminum shelves on my ankles as I slept. The victims - three full shelves of DVD's, two full sh...
TheForce.net has an excerpted review* of the Wii variant of Star Wars: The Force Unleashed which praises the controls, but notes that the game is heartbreakingly short. As in six hours. I/m pondering the possibility of there ...
A Canadian dad can thank his teenage son's enjoyment of pot for helping him rake in a smooth $9,100 for a copy of Guitar Hero III on eBay. Dad recently purchased the game in an online bid for the sum of $100 as a Christmas pr...
About ikiryou One of us since 6:08 AM on 05.02.2007
The funkily-spelled term 'ikiryou', per Wiki, 'refers to a spirit that leaves the body of a living person and subsequently haunts other people or places, sometimes across great distances'. Now replace the word "haunts" with "annoys". I like more game types than I can think to post here, which makes for an awful backlog of epic proportions. The picture below is a poorly 'shopped representation of me holding my backlog list.
I've been gaming since Defender was only available in an arcade. The first video game I can remember playing (non-arcade) was a Defender clone on some sort of godawful Tandy computer. It could've been a Trash-80, I'm unsure since it was middle school. Then my parental units bought me several LED/LCD-based handheld/tabletop games (Pac-Man and Zaxxon) which were totally not actual video games.
Around the same time I discovered goth/heavy metal/thrash/new wave music, which I thought my parents considered a loud tool of Satan(!). So I naturally consumed it like tasty unrefined Red Lyrium and turned into a frothy-mouthed red demon or something.
I am currently demoniacally possessed by an Xbox, PS2, PS3, Xbox360, a PSP(slim, CFW 6.61), a pearl-white DS Slim, a Vita, and the New 3DS XL...and an ungodly backlog which I've *totally never mentioned before* in this profile.
WiiU: Xenoblade Chronicles X
Vita>> Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, Hyperdimension Neptunia Rebirth 2, Phantasy Star Nova, Freedom Wars, Soul Sacrifice Delta
3DS>> Monster Hunter 4U, Shin Megami Tensei IV, Xenoblade Chronicles
PS3>> MGSV (FOB nonsense), EX Troopers (Lost Planet)
Xbox>> Far Cry 4, GTAV (yes, still)
Favorite Music: Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, Fever Ray/The Knife, Nine Inch Nails, The Cure, Sisters of Mercy, Metallica, Austra, Myrkur...seriously, you should be working on your backlog instead of reading this shite.
