Fate/ Stay Night - UBW - February 5

Been feeling like myself for a few days now, so hopefully this is a return to our regularly scheduled programming!

Fable III

So obviously DAII really needed its own post (would you all still like to see that even though it ended up being discussed in the comments?). In the spirit of learning from mistakes, here's an entire post for Fable III!

This was originally going to be in QuickPans, but I just had to much to rant about. It was one of those where I was shouting at the screen the whole time and Boyfriend just sat and laughed because I am apparently hilarious to everyone everywhere when stories annoy me.

Allegiant Analysis

So, before we find out more about how all rebellions are wrong because fuck the oppressed, let's pause and go over what we've seen so far. As is necessary, we have to discard the previous books, but just going on what we have here, are there interesting stories that could be told?

Allegiant Ch25-Ch26

Last time, Tobias decides to have Tris come with him. Today, Tris comes with him.

QuickRecs II

Not to get anyone's hopes up, but the next Fate post is like 75% done.

In the meantime, though, here's some stuff. Fable series, Dragon Age series, and a book.

Allegiant Ch23-24

Last time, the author really doesn't know where she's going with this, but she figures if she just keeps writing she'll think of something.

Today, more of that!

Higurashi: Curse-Killing Arc

I unfortunately can't give you all a timeline for the return of Fate, as things seem to have taken a downturn again, but in the meantime I have some more short reviews for you. So! Shit's getting real in Hinamizawa, yo.

The Reconstruction Part 45 - "Have & Have Not", "Where None Dare", "The Final Pilgrimage" (Guest Review)

New area, new flavor text.

Allegiant Ch22

Last time, the worldbuilding is such a disjointed mess that we get characters "repeating" information that bears no resemblance to the previous paragraph and it doesn't look like I'll be able to stop my white supremacist comparisons anytime soon.

Allegiant Ch20-21

Last time, so many answers, all of them terrible and most of them without questions to go with. Today, no matter how hard I bang the exposition train won't stop or even move to a more interesting rail.

Ever17 (Guest Review)

I see what you mean about drowning women on cover art, Farla.

I heard people on the internet say this was a good game so I checked out an LP. I really should have learned my lesson after Nine Hours Nine Persons Nine Doors, especially because it was recommended by people who liked Nine Hours Nine Persons Nine Doors and was cowritten by the guy who wrote Nine Hours Nine Persons Nine Doors, but here we are. At least my bad habits generate angry reviews for your entertainment.

Ever17 is not a good game, or a good story, or a good anything. I do think, however, it could easily reach "so bad it's good" territory, because the plot is hilarious.

Allegiant Ch19

Last time, Tobias emoed he wasn't special! Today, Tris is sad she's not special.

The difference is, she figures it just doesn't matter or is wrong, while Tobias is in a tailspin.

Allegiant Ch18

Last time, the author does not know what genetics are or how it works, but she heard some people talking about them this one time.

Baltimore: The Curse Bells

With a new arc come new disappointments. But first!

This is the best female character in the series. Get to know her, but don't get attached.

Also, remember my warning when I was doing Crossed about comic books and depicting terrible stuff for shock value? That has not stopped being a thing comics do.

The Reconstruction Part 44 - "Pressing Forth" (Guest Review)

Last time, Yacatec's a slaver but Qualstio won't do anything about it because the only thing this game loves more than Qualstio is characters refusing to do things.

Planet Stronghold (Guest Review)

Today on hideously overdue reviews, I got video games last Christmas. One of them was Planet Stronghold and it's...really, really bizarre. You know that thing where fantasy stories are hastily redressed as sci-fi for whatever reason? It's like that, only even less coherent. There's a king and psionic powers and hat-wearing alien races, but there's also actual guns and robots and supercomputers. It's very, very confusing.

Seriously, there's a king and he's wearing ermine robes, because that will be such an important status symbol in the interplanetary empire future. Just look at that. There must be an ermine planet, and he must set aside only the finest ermine pelts from the finest ermines for his own personal wardrobe. Because he's a king, you see. A king IN SPACE. Because that makes sense.

Allegiant Ch14-15

Last time, this book disappoints in a wholly unexpected way, and I realize this book is indeed going to be the worst one.

Thursday, August 7, 2014

Allegiant Ch9-13

Last time, we might actually get to see what's outside rather than another thirty chapters of staying here!

Gone Home

This was a great game right up to the very end, which was incredibly disappointing.
