Just How Fast Are The Ships in Infinite Space? [Infinite Space Theory]

 

 

WARNING! THIS POST CONTAINS MINOR SPOILERS FOR INFINITE SPACE. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.


Man, it has been a while, hasn't it? Almost a year since my last post. And I can't even remember the last time I made a video game theory (still technically a hypothesis). What can you do? Life gets in the way of things. As you already know, this post contains minor spoilers for the game. If you want to avoid them, I suggest you try and play the game yourself. It's an epic story set in the far future where humans have pretty much mastered space travel. The story was what kept me hooked to the game even after its rather simplistic and quite frankly repetitive combat system lost it's charm. This is no small feat since my total play time ended up being 73 hours and 20 minutes after I finished the campaign and I got bored of the combat about 4 or 5 hours in. Enough about that let's just begin with the theory.

Random Reviews Chapter-17: Dash And The Forces of Alien Hell (Prodoomer)



DISCLAIMER: I DON'T OWN ANY IMAGES USED IN THIS POST.

Recently, I completed a Doom wad/mod called Prodoomer. This is an interesting mod made by PsychoSilverTH. It's been a while since I reviewed a Doom wad. Let's get started.

Random Reviews Chapter-16: Mojo Life (Watamote)


WARNING: THE FOLLOWING POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE WATAMOTE ANIME. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

DISCLAIMER: I DON'T THE IMAGES USED IN THIS POST.

This blog went on a bit of a hiatus due to a combination of writer's block and getting a connection timed out error every time I tried to access this site. All that's solved now and I'm back with another Random Review.

I should probably warn you; Watamote is the anime that replaced Mirai Nikki as my favorite anime. So don't expect a 100% unbiased review. I will however, try to remain as unbiased as I can while reviewing this. Now let's begin.

Some New Pokemon types that will be added (Eventually).

Pokemon has gone on for over two decades. Even though I said that I hate Pokemon, it's because of how every generation of games is pretty much exactly the same as the previous generation of games. I still admire the clever ideas, creative designs and more or less awesome mechanics that made the Pokemon franchise so great. Which is why I still enjoy Rom Hacks and fan games.

So with Pokemon being as popular as it is and with no sign of showing any reduction in popularity, I think it's safe to say, that over the years, about any and every type you can think of will be an official type at some point in time, provided that the franchise itself doesn't die.

So this and the fact that hate it or love it, it's fun discussing random things in the games. So today I felt like discussing some types which can be introduced as well as how it can effect other types. Besides, it's my blog, I can write whatever I want.

Random Reviews Chapter-15: Ex-Zero (Megaman ZX)


WARNING! THE FOLLOWING POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR MEGAMAN ZX. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN THE IMAGES USED IN THIS POST.

So, I recently finished Megaman ZX and I felt it was quite different from the Zero Series. Why am I comparing it with Zero, which was different from other Megaman games itself? Because ZX comes after Zero in the timeline. Also, the Megaman Zero Series is my favorite Megaman series after Battle Network. Let's Begin.

Top 5 Video game Powers that would be really useful IRL.

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN THE IMAGES USED IN THIS POST.

I decide to do another Top list. This time, I wanted to talk about some video game powers which I really wish I had from time to time. As for the rules, this list is mostly based on my personal opinion and taste. I'm not putting powers from games I didn't play. A single power may be prevalent in multiple games. I'm rating these based on how useful I think they will be to me. You maybe thinking, "But a lot of video game powers are awesome." I agree with you but, most of these powers will either turn you into a super hero or villain. I'd much rather go about my life as me and NOT be the center of attention. Let's begin!

Random Reviews Chapter-14: A Prelude to Sorrow (Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow)


WARNING! THE FOLLOWING REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR CASTLEVANIA: ARIA OF SORROW FOR THE GBA. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK.

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN THE IMAGES USED IN THIS POST.

It's been a while since I reviewed a commercial game. It was more than a year ago and that too was a re-review (Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia). Anyway, I review another Castlevania game.

Random Reviews Chapter-13: Secrets? (A Dark Secret)


WARNING! THIS POST MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS FOR THE VISUAL NOVEL "A DARK SECRET" AND MAY ALSO CONTAIN CONTENT INAPPROPRIATE FOR YOUNGER VIEWERS. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN THE IMAGES USED IN THIS POST. I GOT THEM FROM THE INTERNET.

"A Dark Secret"... Yeah right! I stumbled on to this game a few months back when I was browsing through The Visual Novel Database looking for some visual novels to play. I'll just quote the entire description of VNDB for the game.

RE: Can you "Overhype" an anime

WARNING! THIS POST IS MOSTLY MY OWN OPINION AND IS VERY SUBJECTIVE IN NATURE.

Some time ago, Daziigirl made a post on unotaku.net about over-hyping an anime. This is a reply to that post. Here's the link to her post: http://unotaku.net/index.php/2016/04/20/can-you-overhype-an-anime/
