My Games of 2013 – Darrell

My Games of 2013 – Darrell 

I’ve been something of a negligent father this year in games: raucous little shits bouncing around me, screaming “Da” while The Last of Us stares with broken eyes from her half-destroyed blanket fort. It’s a seedy blanket hovel at best. I’ve been consumed by others things, though; I’ve hardly noticed the guttersnipes.

Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory

Review: Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory 

The game-consoles-as-girls are back, and they’re out for revenge! Or something less severe. Naps, sisterhood, and industry quarreling, chiefly. Welcome to Hyperdimension Neptunia Victory, the third installment in the fourth wall-breaking series.

Review: Generation of Chaos: Pandora’s Reflection

Review: Generation of Chaos: Pandora’s Reflection 

The latest game in Idea Factory’s strategy series, Generation of Chaos: Pandora’s Reflection is a departure from its normal fare. They’ve teamed up with Sting, best known for their Dept. Heaven games, to breathe new life into the series. And with notches like Yggdra Union and Riviera: The Promised Land on their belt, it’s safe to say this is a favorable pairing on paper.

Of Daughters and Dishonored (Spoilers)

Of Daughters and Dishonored (Spoilers) 

Dishonored is a first-person stealth action game that smells sweetly of Thief and Bioshock. Beneath the sinister cloak-and-dagger gameplay and masterfully realized setting, there lies a chaos system. It gauges your carnage, tallies your eviscerations, considers your subtlety, ponders your disposition toward revenge or mercy and changes the world accordingly. It also changes your daughter.
