I’ll join in the #shoetoid festivities. They aren’t anything special, but they go well with my dresses.

Review: Lost Wing

I’m something of a cheerleader for rail shooters. I feel the sub-genre has still gone largely untapped, and that it’s a formula the indie market could really make work. Lost Wing is something like that. However, I’m also a...

 
 
 

Today's Dating Adzuken is about a game that is, like, 45 minutes long. Which is roughly how long most of my previous relationships lasted. Anyway, here's Pyrite Heart.

Review: Merchant of the Skies

I’ve been a merchant of a lot of things. The Elite series allowed me to be a space trader, Euro Truck Simulator let me try my hand at terrestrial trade, and Wall Street Kid had me trading stocks directly. Now it’s time for Merc...

 
 
 

Continuing the theme of romance on my blog with this review of Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour. I keep wanting to say 40th anniversary, but I'm not that old.

Review: Hotel Sowls

I am, admittedly, a sucker for unique art styles. Sure, I enjoy lush graphics, beautiful pixel art, or stylish cel-shading, but they don’t grab my attention in the same way as something that forges a path in a different direction. I g...

 
 
 

I treated myself to the first new release I’ve bought in a long while. You all seemed to be enjoying it, so I hope you haven’t been lying this whole time.


 
 
 

Gosh, I know that feeling, sister.


 
 
 

In this week's delve into dating sims, I'm breaking hearts in Tokyo School Life. Read about me feeling guilty about a fictional character's feelings over on my blog.


 
 
 

Too spicy for Destructoid. I've got a review for the ecchi visual novel, Troubledays on my blog. Don't judge me.

Review: Rainswept

I'd probably make a horrible detective. It's not that I have any issues with observation or deduction, but rather I'm empathetic and I tend to trust people immediately. I also don't smoke or drink coffee, which I think instantly disqualifie...

Review: Dex

I love cyberpunk. I love its towering neon skylines, its oppressive megacorporations, its seedy underbelly, and the discomforting ways that it twists the world to be familiar but darkened and warped. I love the augmented mercenaries, the te...

 
 
 

Zero is getting big.


 
 
 

I'm starting a new feature on my blog where I blindly play through dating sims and give a running narrative of my romance. First up is Magical Diary: Horse Hall. Bump

Review: CrossCode

I’ve often said that the worst part about MMOs is the whole multiplayer part. Don’t put too much stake in that statement, it’s more than likely just the complaint of an aging curmudgeon. Nonetheless, I’ve often found...

 
 
 

The name of this game is so long I can't write anything else about it because the link is too lengthy. It's my review for Baobabs Mausoleum Part 3.


 
 
 

I'm back. It's the 3 year anniversary of my blog, and I'm using the milestone to relaunch, sort of. Hopefully, you'll be seeing more of me around and I won't just faceplant.

Review: Fury Unleashed

I approach roguelikes and their poseur brethren roguelites with a modicum of hesitation. It’s not that I don’t like the gameplay style, it’s just that I’m never sure if I’ll ever complete them. Often times, my ...

Review: Cloudpunk

Flying cars seem to have become a thing of the past. Where once we were practically promised that we'd one day be soaring above the streets during the morning commute, we've now accepted that, yeah, maybe that's not such a good idea. People...

 
 
 

I finally finished La-Mulana. The fact that I resorted to guides to get myself unstuck a few times takes some of the edge off. I'm going to try avoiding them entirely for La-Mulana 2. Just me and my notebook.

 
 
 

#MyFirstQPost was a clear warning of what was to come. I really need to get back into watching terrible video game cartoons.


 
 
 

Made a few deep cuts in this review for Retro Game Challenge. It's not every day I get to drop mention of Ninja Jajamaru-kun or Kyorochan Land.


 
 
 
 

I've been dealing with writer's block for a while and I feel like I'm on the cusp of snapping out of it. Do you mind doing me a favour? Type at me the name of a game and I'll just freewrite whatever it brings to mind.


 
 
 

Been stuck on this review for 198X for a while. Finally re-wrote it to something I don't completely hate. I still think I just didn't "get" the game, though.
