Steins;Gate – It’s About Time

OR: I Tapped ENTER For 30 Hours and All I Got Was This Lousy Ending

Since I recently time-traveled all the way back to the beginning of visual novels with Portopia, I figured I would check out this more modern title to see how the genre has evolved in all these years. Steins;Gate may be 10 years old already (in effect making it retro-ish), but since it’s about time travel, does it really matter? The game will make you think about things like that; at least, it did for me, as I finally got around to playing this now-legendary title for the first time. Or maybe I’ve been here before in a different reality, and it wasn’t my first time? (Yeah, it was, I’m just messing with you.) (I think.) Continue reading “Steins;Gate – It’s About Time”

State of the Blog Address 05.06.20

Happy belated 3.5 years to me! This coronavirus shutdown/stay-at-home thing has all our days blurring together, and I totally missed my usual April 16 date to post my annual half-year State of the Blog Address! As longtime followers may know, since the blog’s anniversary is on October 16, that means April 16 is the halfway point to another year online, so I like to step back and talk about where the blog is now, and my plans for the coming year.

Shenmue III: FINISHED!

This morning, after 18 years of waiting, I finally finished Shenmue III. As I’ve referenced before, I am a huge fan of the original two Shenmue games, and an eager Kickstarter backer of this third part.

So obviously, the big question is: How was it? Well, I’ve got a lot to say. Continue reading “Shenmue III: FINISHED!”

Oh god, I finally watched Joysticks

If you’re an old-fart gamer — like me — you may remember, or at least be aware of, the 1983 movie Joysticks. I’m not even sure if this Z-grade, R-rated teensploitation stinker has even achieved the rank of “cult classic,” so I’m hesitant to use it. However, in the interest of research…sigh. I finally pulled the trigger. Continue reading “Oh god, I finally watched Joysticks”

A Eulogy for the Strategy Guide

Do you hear that? No, of course you don’t. It’s silence. Why is there silence, you may ask?

Because the kid behind the counter at Gamestop is no longer asking you if you want the strategy guide with your new game. Why not?

Because there isn’t one.
