Games I won’t review – Dragon Quest Builders

February 21st, 2018 No comments

Dragon Quest Builders

I skipped this game when it came out previously on Vita and PS4 because I don’t buy console versions of games that are also on handhelds, and the Vita version didn’t get a physical release. So getting it on Switch appeased both issues at once!

So I make it no secret that I don’t like Minecraft. It’s boring and pointless and the whole “creativity” thing just means nothing to me. I play games for the game design and challenge. So putting a Dragon Quest skin on Minecraft and adding a storyline and quests and stuff? Alright you got my attention.

And yet here I am, not reviewing it. Why am I not reviewing Dragon Quest Builders? Well read on and you’ll see!

Games I won’t review – Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker’s Memory

January 27th, 2018 No comments

Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Hacker's Memory
So 2 years ago Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth came out. It was a pretty fun JRPG where you’d train up Digimon and investigate the mysterious “Eater” creatures that have been messing up the world and mixing up the digital world and the real world.

It wasn’t perfect, I played on normal difficulty and it was too easy most of the time (except literally the final boss, which makes sense) and it was a lot of going through menus to go to different places. But overall a fun game.

So I figured I’d get this new one, I figured it would fix some small things and hey, it’s more Digimon Story, which will always be more interesting than Digimon World (after I made the mistake of buying that one last year).

So instead I’m just not gonna review it, after buying it. Read on and see why!

January 7th, 2018 No comments

So today I’m not reviewing: Steamworld Dig 2, Ruiner and Pyre.

Let’s go!

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

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

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!
