Rockmandash's State of the Review: Road To Rockman DASH!

It's that time of the year again! The time where I tell you about my review schedule changing like 5 months before I actually start writing the new reviews! Like last time, I'm planning on shifting my reviews, so I'd like to get my thoughts out so you guys know it, and so I can get my plans out in a form I won't be… » 8/20/14 8:45pm Yesterday 8:45pm

Surgeon Simulator Anniversary Edition: The TAY Micro Review

I learned a few things playing Surgeon Simulator Anniversary Edition. I learned doing surgery with one hand is hard. I learned not to play with the green needle, no matter how fun the effects. I learned I should never be a doctor. I also learned I'm a cold-blooded killer. And I like it. » 8/20/14 8:00am Yesterday 8:00am

For newcomers however, this is a problem. » 8/20/14 6:57am Yesterday 6:57am

Daily Lives Of High School Boys: The Tay Review

Just having finished Daily Lives Of High School Boys, I'm still not sure what to think about it. On the one hand it balances humour and scenario's with a bunch of kids having fun. But on the other hand it doesn't seem to know when to take itself seriously and doesn't have a clear story line. I even had to search the… » 8/20/14 6:17am Yesterday 6:17am

PyramidHeadcrab Goes LARPing: Episode 1, The Introductionism.

I've been putting this off for a long time, and I should be in bed, but fuck it's let's do this thing. I always thought LARPing was retarded - a bunch of dorks running around a field shouting "MAGIC MISSILE!" at each other and calling damage counts out loud like an ill 1980's computer. While I won't claim these sorts… » 8/19/14 11:25pm Tuesday 11:25pm

Nostalgia From Not Long Ago

Well thanks to a new (old?) friend, I once again have started listening to the OST and drifted back to my fond memories of playing Persona 4 at the beginning of of 2013 on the brand-new PlayStation 2 I ordered~ Wait. That was practically over a year and a half ago?! But it feels like it's been years since I sat down… » 8/19/14 8:48pm Tuesday 8:48pm
