Cblogs of 3/12/16 - Just not in the mood

So Daylight Savings happened, which means we all lost an hour. Curses! While I guess it's inevitable considering that we're going to get one back in a couple of months, I could've used the extra time right now. I'm still behind in Com...


Cblogs of 02/14/16 + Video Killed The Textual Star

Sorry to say that this recap wouldn't be another rambling session about Final Fantasy 8, as I've lately been working on a handheld RPG review. So let's talk about something else. Something unrelated to the holiday. Let's talk about videos...


Cblogs of 01/17/16 + The Difficulty of Difficulty

Today I had to restart playing Persona 4: Golden, after trying to play through it a second time for the past week. Still stuck on the first dungeon's first few levels, I felt like I was on the cusp of being able to power through but by doin...


Cblogs of 01/11/16 + Is There Life on Mars?

Nostalgia, what a peculiar beast. Despite the forward march of technology, design experience and accessibility, we still go back to the older games of days past. We ponder on games years upon years old, we get excited every time we blow dus...


Cblogs of 01/03/16 + Sometimes Its Okay To Stop

I have a viewpoint that may be very controversial (considering fan pressure campaigns), or more likely isn't at all (due to similar reasons as I). Despite this, I believe there is a general trend within videogame series that leaves me simul...


Cblogs of 1/2/16 - First Dreamgasms of the year

First recaps of the year, and I don't really have much to say. Other than experiencing the awesomeness that is Undertale, unfortunately, things haven't been going too great lately (if you couldn't tell from my bad quickposts... sorry ab...


Cblogs of 12/27/15 + Things Rio Has Been Up To

Oh man, I'm so happy I got the Sunday spot. Also known as a few days after Christmas and before the New Year (i.e. days that I could have been found drunk or hung-over). Well, I guess it is the little things we must cherish. In the reviewi...


Cblogs of 12/19/15 - Tame The Force Awakens X

I didn't get a chance to do much gaming this week. Other than the occasional hour of Star Wars: Battlefront for a couple of days, I haven't really "had time" to touch either Fallout 4 or Xenoblade Chronicles X. While I did have some fre...


Cblogs of 12/06/15 + Award Season

It is now December, the dead month for releases. You do have Rainbow Six Seige and Just Cause 3 at the start of the month, but from here on out it is seems to strike me as a month of indie games through Christmas and leading up to New Years...

Im not sure who Mobile Suit Gundam Battle Operation 2 is for, but its not for Its clunky contorls reminds me of Let it Die but worse, and its essentially an F2P gacha mobile game that looks like a PS3 launch title and control like a PS1 2/10
