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

May 13th, 2017 No comments

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.

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.

Games I won’t review – Digimon World: Next Order

February 7th, 2017 No comments

Digimon World: Next Order
So last year we got Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth, and my review for that was pretty positive. It was a fairly standard JRPG with the whole digivolving concept that let you have a large variety of Digimon in your party. It wasn’t the most amazing RPG out there but it did the job quite well.

So I figured, hey, why not buy the follow up. However I should’ve read this game’s title correctly, because this isn’t Digimon Story like Cyber Sleuth was, this is Digimon World. And what I got when I turned on the game just baffled me.

Why is this a “Game I won’t review”? Well, simple enough: I’m about 10 hours in, and I’m tired of it, and despite all that time spent I’m not even through Chapter 1 yet (don’t know how many chapters there are, don’t care). I’m basically writing this as a review, but please don’t take it as such.

Let’s go!

(this is really long for a “not review”, but I can’t consider it an actual review)

Final Fantasy 15 impressions

December 28th, 2016 No comments

Well I WOULD call this a review, if FF15 was a reviewable game. It’s not, by my estimation. So this is an impressions post instead.

So I just finished this, and as you may have noticed it made no appearance in my GotY 2016 post. There’s a few reasons for that.

So let’s go and talk about one of the biggest releases of the year!

Note: This does not mention any of the extra content they’re adding later down the line, may it be cutscenes or new scenarios. I won’t play those either way. This is about what the game is as of this writing.

Games I won’t review – Dragon Ball edition – Fusions and Xenoverse 2

December 18th, 2016 No comments

So I’ve been a Dragon Ball fan for a long time. I watched the original DB as a kid, watched DBZ as soon as it started, read most of the manga, and I’m watching Dragon Ball Super now even though it kinda sucks most of the time, because it’s more Dragon Ball. It’s kind of a generic anime to be a fan of, but whatever, I like it.

So today I’m writing non-reviews for 2 Dragon Ball games I got recently, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 and Dragon Ball Fusions. Games that are actually surprisingly similar despite not at all playing the same.

Note: These non-reviews don’t mean the games are bad, just that I might not have enough to say for a full review, or haven’t/won’t end up playing enough to write a full review, but I still want to talk about them. In this case both games are good.

Games I won’t review – Pokemon Sun and Moon

Pokemon is one of those almost-but-not-quite-yearly series that tend to do things pretty well. It started with a strong core, and built up new things bit by bit in sequels. In the end you’re playing a game that’s very similar to the one you played before, but the small changes end up giving a slightly different experience.

It’s been 3 years since the last proper new game in the series (not counting Omega Ruby and Sapphire, because they’re remakes), and the hype for Sun and Moon was very high.

Let’s talk about these a bit!

Games I won’t review: the “for now” edition – Dishonored 2

November 13th, 2016 No comments

Dishonored 2

Unlike other “Games I won’t review” posts, this is a game I might end up reviewing eventually. But right now it’s in a sad fucking state and I refuse to even play it until I see a patch being downloaded on Steam, and if that patch makes the game playable.

Games I won’t review – Vita edition again

November 2nd, 2016 No comments

Another set of Vita games I won’t be reviewing. Not much reason beyond “There’s other stuff I’m playing and these took a backseat, perhaps permanently”.

The 2 games this time are Tri-Ace’s multiplat RPG Exist Archive, and boobs… I mean, Marvelous’ Vita-exclusive actioner Valkyrie Drive: Bhikkhuni.

Read on and see my impressions for both games, and why I won’t have a complete review of these.
