Friday the 13th: Part Robek: The Review

I took on many challenges in 2019. Many casual Why Fans may have heard about my successful attempt at No Shit ’19, where I refused to poop once in 12 months. But the true fans of myself (who go by many names such as The Why Army, Whyheads, Why Guys, and the one name that… Continue reading Friday the 13th: Part Robek: The Review

Risk of Rain? More Like Risk of Rain 2

First of all I’d like to say hello, I haven’t written an article in a while, and to be honest I have no real reason for it. Second, what is up with this new editor? Everything looks different and I’m scared. Anyways, Risk of Rain is a game that came out in 2013 and Risk… Continue reading Risk of Rain? More Like Risk of Rain 2

My 2018 In Video Games

Because I lack any humor I once had, I don’t want to do elaborate awards this year. Instead, I’ll give my thoughts on some games I explored or rediscovered this year. At the end, I comment about some things potentially coming in 2019. The Alliance Alive The little 3DS is so proud of its success,… Continue reading My 2018 In Video Games

Tsugunai – Atonement

Think about your favorite town in a JRPG. Anyone who’s played a JRPG has a favorite, and usually a different one from everyone else. Why you like the town varies: maybe it’s from one of the first games you’ve played, or it reminds you of your home town, you really like the setting or stories,… Continue reading Tsugunai – Atonement

I don’t like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

In all my game reviews, especially recently, I’ve recommended, discussed, and hopefully analyzed a lot of games that I like. Those are games I like because they’re charming, deserve more popularity, have interesting design, or I just think they’re special. Writing an article about a game I dislike is a completely different angle, and feels… Continue reading I don’t like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night

Uplink

Seemingly the entire PC simulation game genre has a tendency to give the player immediate head-first immersion. That immersion is in both senses of the word: complete theming of all audio/visual elements of the game, and complete detachment from guiding the player, forcing them to make mistakes and learn from them. Uplink, a 2001 game… Continue reading Uplink

Ape Escape

If there’s one thing I love most about video games, it’s controls. I’m more likely to forgive a game’s flaws if it tries to use controls in a unique way, and many of my favorite games (like MGS 2 and Katamari) use unique controls well. So when the development team for Ape Escape saw what… Continue reading Ape Escape

Kero Blaster

Kero Blaster is a game by Daisuke Amaya, or Pixel, the same guy who made Cave Story. It’s almost impossible not to mention and compare Cave Story when talking about Kero Blaster, despite the games sharing few similarities. The influence of Cave Story basically redefining the indie game industry, and leading to the overabundance of… Continue reading Kero Blaster

Loom

Do you have a moment to talk about Loom? Loom is an 1990 Lucasarts Lucasfilm Games point-and-click adventure game made for DOS. Despite this incredibly specific genre category, it’s almost nothing like Maniac Mansion or The Secret of Monkey Island. I’ll spare the summary, since it’s more worthwhile for you to play the extremely short… Continue reading Loom

The Year in Review: Video Games 2017

2017 was a year in which video games were released, I think. Much better than all those years where video games were not released. Anyways, I did make an article like this last year. Last year I wasn’t fucking 2 months late, and furthermore that article was actually good. I also said last year that,… Continue reading The Year in Review: Video Games 2017

Parasite Eve

This time of year, everyone has the same argument with the same people: Is Die Hard a Christmas movie? Sure, it takes place during Christmastime, and there is quite a lot of references to the holiday, but is that what makes it so? At the end of the day, it’s still an enjoyable, well-made film… Continue reading Parasite Eve
