Faking it: Sure, I listen to some metal

Hi, Siddartha here.  I don’t know why you’d ever have to fake liking heavy metal.  I'm trying to imagine a situation where it's critical to pretend to like this niche but amazing genre of music, but it's tough. &n...

 
 
 

Siddartha's E3 Wish List: 2017

I tried to steer clear of just listing hoped-for games.  I'm more interested in events.  What kinds of things get announced more generally. Nintendo is Already Doing Great Not much to say here. I could say something about a n...

 
 
 

Photo Gallery: Gravity Rush 2

Hey guys, I wanted to post some of my favorite Gravity Rush 2 selfies, because you know what?  Nobody else has seen them or ever will and that is a crying shame.  GR2 has one of the best photo modes I've ever seen in a game. ...

 
 
 
 

Final Fantasy 15 and its Ancient Kings

Square Enix said Final Fantasy 15 was going to be about growing up and manhood, and indeed, the game feels like a statement about masculinity that probably has a deeper reading. Given that this is supposed to be the formative experienc...

 
 
 
 

All Good Things: The End of Diablo 3

Diablo is probably my favorite series of games. I didn't even play the first one, so Diablo 2 was just that good. I was even invested in the lore, when they brought it up in Diablo 3. Unlike, apprently, the users of Metacritic, I did n...

 
 
 

Music Notes: "Tied Down" by Forever Still

I was in the middle of writing a review of an entirely different album, when something else came up.  "Tied Down" by Forever Still is what came up. Forever Still is a "melodic hard rock band" (Their words, but accurate).  My first...

 
 
 

Waifu Wars: Beatrix

In Final Fantasy 9, Beatrix is the commander of the Knights of Pluto, one half of the knights protecting the kingdom of Alexandria.  Her knights are all female and are super diligent.  By contrast, Steiner commands the o...

 
 
 

Siddartha's Things of the Year for 2015

This started as my top 10 list, before I realized that I hadn't played 10 games this year.  So I threw more stuff on.  Maybe I'll keep doing it, too.  Anyway, I didn't play Undertale.  So this won't be plastered wit...

 
 
 

Music Notes: Emotion by Carly Rae Jepsen

  When I review albums, I like to find a central theme that it's trying to communicate. "Emotion" by Carly Rae Japsen has two modes, so to speak. One is "I love you, you love me, so let's dance and mess around", the other is "I cheris...

 
 
 
 
 

Chime is getting a sequel on Kickstarter!

If haven't played Chime, it was a small, downloadable musical puzzle game from years ago.  It's generally compared to Lumines, the closest thing to it.  But Chime was relaxing and trippy where Lumines was stressful and hectic. &...

 
 
 

E3: Most Wanted

Yup, I'm ripping off El Dango. No sense wasting time, let's get to it.  You know what E3 is.  If you don't, go ask your mother.  I heard she's doing an AMA right now. Quantum Break revealed as a practical joke and Alan W...

 
 
 
 

Pickup Lines: The Party Game

Here's something I thought of today.  It requires either a 10-sided die or change the odds to suit a pair of six-sided dice.  The odds and scoring are variable and so is everything else.  I may update this if I want...

 
 
 

Dear Konami, just make more P.T.

If you're reading this, I assume you've either played some of P.T. or have an idea of what the fuss is about.  It's a "Playable Teaser".  But it's more like a demo, or arguably a small game in it's own right. If you're like me, you got par...

 
 
 

I love Armor Lock and everything it stands for

Playing Halo Reach online, if there was a point of contention about armor abilities is was Armor Lock.  I've heard it called "cheating", "for noobs" and strings of curses.  But why was that?  Well apparently "fair" in Halo meant the ability...

 
 
 

Ten things you didn't know about Siddartha85

Yeah, I know this is late. 1. Time constraints have me drifting away from some games and towards others Every so often, I read a forum post from someone leaving games behind.  Whether they've gotten married or are having a kid, t...
