Are Japanese Games Getting Too Lewd?

I like to imagine that there’s a person out there who reads the title of this post, screams “NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!” and then dives from the sky like a peregrine falcon to try and hit me with a flying cross chop at 200 m...

 
 
 
 

So How Good is Cosplay, Really?

You know, I can’t even begin to guess the number of posts that have been inspired by conversations with my brother.  I swear, he’s like a goldmine of writing material -- which is partly to be expected when he’s ...

 
 
 
 

Getting the Most Out of Games

Before I do anything else, I need to ask you Star Wars fans out there a question: what do you think of Darth Vader?  I’m curious, because I don’t have a leg to stand on.  I’ve seen the Star Wars movies (sav...

 
 
 
 

So How Good is Capcom, Really?

It should go without saying, but the book has long since been closed.  As of September 22nd, Street Fighter V assembled all of its first-wave DLC characters.  It started off with Alex, went to Guile, gave us Ibuki and Balrog...

 
 
 
 

Who’s the Sexiest Character in Gaming?

Not to start this post off with a controversial opinion (on top of a clickbait-worthy title), but I have to be honest: I think underboob is the worst thing ever. It’s fine if other people like it, of course.  But for me?&nb...

 
 
 
 

Tales of Zestiria: I Want You

I have a lot to thank my mom for, but I’d wager that my general avoidance of sweets is one of them.  It’s not that I have anything against candy (except chocolate, because I’m secretly history’s greatest m...

 
 
 
 

Art, the Great Equalizer

There’s an episode of Kamen Rider Drive where -- Hey, wait!  Don’t close the page yet!  I’m going somewhere with this. There’s an episode of Kamen Rider Drive where leading man Shinnosuke -- an ace co...

 
 
 
 

Top 10(ish) Cool Video Game Ladies -- ACT II

Okay, so quick show of hands: who here thinks that the gaming industry has improved recently? I know it may seem otherwise with every other post I write, but I’m glad to argue that there’s been progress.  Indie titles...

 
 
 
 

A Blithering Post on AAA Violence

Confession time: up until a few days before its release, I didn’t know very much about No Man’s Sky.  From what I can gather, I wasn’t the only one.  The narrative being spun around it is that the sheer vag...

 
 
 
 

Who’s the Biggest Badass in Gaming?

And by “biggest” I mean most prominent or obvious -- not necessarily in terms of scale.  If that was the case, then we’d all have no choice but to give it to…I don’t know, Wyzen from Asura’s W...

 
 
 
 

The Wonderful 101(st Post)

So last week, I uploaded a second post on the story mode for Street Fighter V.  Nothing out of the ordinary, of course, but the Destructoid dashboard told me that that was the 100th post I’d written for the community blogs....

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Final Fantasy XV: Till the End of Time

So it’s the beginning of August right now, and Final Fantasy 15 is due out on September 30th.  In other words?  Oh God.  It’s almost time for another Final Fantasy game. Right, then.  So let’s do ...

 
 
 
 

Shower Thoughts with Persona 5

So Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE is finally out.  Say what you will upfront about its choice to dive headfirst into idol culture (or the Japanese entertainment industry at large), but you know what?  Can we just take a minute to...

 
 
 
 

On Overwatch and a Call for Elegance

This would normally be the part where I launch into a paragraphs-long tangent, but I think I’d better get straight to the point.  I’m taking a hardline stance and saying what I’ve had in mind for years now: vide...

 
 
 
 

On Progression in Games

So how big is your backlog? I’d like to think that the answer to that varies from one gamer to another, but there are some constants.  Not to open myself up for a heaping helping of Foot in Mouth Stew, but I’d imagine...

 
 
 
 

Super Terrible Ideas Time: YouTube Arrange

I’ve resigned myself to a fate of being “behind the curve”.  I’m used to it.  People were using Facebook for years (and turning their backs on it) by the time I even had the thought of making an accou...

So how good is Pokemon, really?

[A lot of us have been in a very Pokémon mood lately. But are we being blinded by nostalgia and cute critters? Voltech wrote an Aerial Ace blog on the matter, go read it with ExtremeSpeed. ~ Shade] Not to start this off with a tangen...

 
 
 

We are VR: Eyes Open!

I consider it a point of pride to know as much as I do about games.  I’m no walking encyclopedia, but I still get around -- though there are still some pretty big gaps I’ve yet to reconcile.  Case in point: I fir...

 
 
 
 

On Hating Popular Things

So how do you feel about Batman? He’s been one of the big players in the DC Comics universe for a while now.  And not to generalize, but I’d assume that Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of Bat-movies secured his plac...

 
 
 
 

So How Good is Ubisoft, Really?

I hope that title doesn’t imply that Ubisoft is a developer/publisher solely capable of evil -- as if we can only count on it for acts of avarice, trickery, and the closest thing to evil a company could ever know.  It can do a lot ...

 
 
 
 

Xenoblade Chronicles X: A Double Lariat

Is there anyone reading this that laments the loss of the game’s bust slider? Just before Xenoblade Chronicles X hit store shelves in the west, there was that controversy over “censorship”, i.e. gamers couldn’t raise or l...

 
 
 


About Voltechone of us since 10:40 PM on 02.06.2012

Long-time gamer, aspiring writer, and frequent bearer of an afro. As an eternal optimist, I like to both look on the bright side of things and see the better parts of games; as a result, I love a game with a good story and awesome characters...and anything that lets me punch the heresy out of my enemies.

I'm a big fan of Atlus' games, and I've enjoyed my fair share of fighters and RPGs. Just...please, keep Final Fantasy XIII out of my sight. It never ends well for anyone involved.

You can check out some of my game musinga/stories/random stuff at my other blog, Cross-Up. I've also got a TV Tropes thingamajig, and a web serial novel, too. Maybe my stuff here and there will be the start of things to come. Hopefully good things, but things all the same.

Be a hero. Check 'em out.
