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

May 13th, 2017 No comments

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!

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)

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

November 28th, 2016 No comments

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 – Deus Ex: Mankind Divided

Deus_Ex,_Mankind_Divided

So you would think this is a game that would merit a full review, right? And, true enough, it definitely does. However, I’m playing the PC version and… I don’t know if it’s my computer, or if the game is badly optimized on PC (which would be weird since the previous game ran great on PC)… But there’s a good reason I decided not to play it anymore.

Still gonna give it a quick mini-review, since I didn’t play enough of it to fully judge it.

Read on and see why I’m not reviewing one of the biggest games of the year!

Games I won’t review – Star Ocean: Integrity and Faithlessness, Pac-Man 256

July 22nd, 2016 No comments

Here’s a game I won’t be reviewing. I was a fan of most previous Star Ocean games, even 4 which I know people didn’t like as much. I had decent hopes for this one. And the reason I’m not reviewing it is because I got bored of it only a few hours in.

So read on and see why it’s not getting a full review. Bonus: a non-review for Pac-Man 256!
