Games I won’t review – Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon

November 17th, 2017 No comments

Nights of Azure 2: Bride of the New Moon

I was gonna review this game. I was completely planning on finishing it and giving it a fair shake. However, the game itself didn’t want me to.

So today in “Games I won’t review”, a sequel no one heard about to a game no one heard about. I believe I reviewed the first game, it was okay, nothing particularly remarkable. A pretty simple action-RPG thing, with minor monster-collecting mechanics and not much else of note other than lesbians with big boobs that seemed right out of a late PS2/early PS3 game graphic-wise.

So let’s go and see if this is any good, and why I’m not reviewing it.

Games I won’t review – Etrian Odyssey V, Mario & Luigi

October 27th, 2017 No comments

Mario just came out and I’m literally taking some of my gameplay time to finish writing this… might as well do it before I forget the rest of the world exists.

These 2 games would go in one of these posts anyways, because they’re both games I wouldn’t write full reviews for; Etrian Odyssey V: Beyond the Myth and the Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga remake.

So let’s go!

Games I won’t review – Mary Skelter: Nightmares

September 23rd, 2017 No comments

Sometimes there’s games I don’t review because they suck and I don’t want to play all the way through, but sometimes there’s games that I do actually like but I end up making some kind of mistake and which kinda ends up ruining the game for myself. This one is such an example.

It’s one of them first-person grid-based dungeon-crawling RPGs, and the Vita is FILLED with those, so I don’t know if I would’ve ended up doing a full review, but I do like talking about them anyways.

So let’s talk about this game a bit!

Games I won’t review – Drive Girls

September 11th, 2017 No comments

drive girls
I like buying random stupid games, and japan is usually where those come from. When I saw Drive Girls I figured it was right in my wheelhouse. A car game where the cars are actually anime girls that transform and it’s actually a beat ‘em up rather than the racing game it looked at in the first few screenshots I saw? Alright, I’ll check it out.

And now that I’ve played it… I kinda don’t wanna review it. So in this edition of Games I won’t review, some animu game!

Let’s go!

Games I won’t review – Knack 2

September 6th, 2017 No comments

Knack II

Remember Knack? Me neither. I own the game, I completed it, I must have reviewed it (… just checked, I did), and I remember nearly nothing about it. The fact that Knack 2 was announced was just… confusing. The first one only sold because it was one of the very few exclusives on the PS4 for the first 4-5 months or so, but critically it was mostly panned, with scores in the 4-6/10 area. No one wanted a sequel. To support that fact, Gamefaqs’ Knack 2 board doesn’t even have a full page of posts as of this writing, even though the game has been out for 2 days (there were about 5 posts pre-launch). There is no interest.

I pre-ordered Knack 2 as a joke, basically. Then forgot to cancel said joke pre-order (when I thought about it my copy had already shipped). So I got it. Oops.

So today in “Games I’m not reviewing”, a game no one wanted, much less me.

Let’s go!

Games I won’t review – Steam Summer Sales 2017 edition

July 1st, 2017 No comments

So it’s Steam Summer Sale time. Usually I buy nothing at these sales despite always having 30+ games in my wishlist being on sale every time. But I was bored so I picked up a few games. So I figure I’d do a “Games I won’t review” post for this year’s “haul”.

The reason for them not getting a few review or a standalone “Game I won’t review” post is because they’re slightly older games and not really worth dedicating a post to at this point.

There’s 2 games I got that are newer and probably still relevant to make a fuller review of, so I’ll have that coming hopefully soon if I get far enough in them (otherwise I’ll “not-review” them in a similar post to this).

Let’s go!

Games I won’t review: Random edition

June 6th, 2017 No comments

So there’s a few games I’ve played recently-ish but, for whatever reason, probably won’t end up reviewing. So I might as well post about them.

No theme this time, just random stuff. Let’s go.

Gravity Rush 2, Fire Emblem Echoes and Disgaea 5 Complete.

Game I won’t review – Strafe

strafe
This sounds exactly like the kind of game I would love. Rogue-lite FPS with classic 90s graphics and an apparent emphasis on fast frantic gameplay.

So why am I not reviewing this? Because I’m fucking tired of it with less than 4 hours played.

So let’s talk about it quickly anyways.

Game I won’t review – Mario Kart 8 Deluxe

May 4th, 2017 No comments

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
I reviewed Mario Kart 8 already. I gave the game decent praise, but re-reading my old review I was surprisingly mild on it. Replaying it again now I do feel I should’ve been more positive about it in the first place. It’s damn good. And I knew that back then, so I don’t know why my review on it is so lukewarm. Weird.

So I don’t really need to be talking about Deluxe, right? Well why not. But there’s no need for a full on review. I’ll just talk about it quickly.

Let’s-a-go!

Game I won’t review – Snake Pass

April 17th, 2017 No comments

snake pass
I think I mostly got this because I want more stuff to play on Switch (which is weird because I already have plenty). I likely would’ve waited for a steam sale otherwise.

Why am I not reviewing it? Well, because I’m extremely bad at it and will likely take a long time to get through it, if at all. So I figure I’ll talk about it now, quickly. Consider this a review if you want, though I’m nowhere near done with it.

Read on and see what’s up with Snake Pass.
