Trying to Build My Gaming Blog

by travis_stywall Thu May 19, 2016 3:45 am

One of my goals for this year is to start a gaming blog and consistently write so that I can improve and have something to look back on in the future — but yeah, I'll update these as they come. Also, if you're on WordPress, add me and I'll do the same, because I'd love to have other blogs to read.

Just went through your write up for Melty Blood. It was a solid read.

One of my friends plays Melty quite a bit, both casually and competitively.

Personally, I'm more partial to Under Night.

Thanks, dude! It's seriously good to hear that my writing is up to snuff. Anyway, I really want to get into Under Night: In-Birth, but I have been to consumed by Skullgirls and Street Fighter V at the moment.

If you've played both, could they play about the same? I only ask because it's behind the same people, but it looks ten times better.

I refuse to grant recognition until it has glowing praise for Hyperdimension Neptunia.

Thanks! Hopefully I can crank out a review in my spare time every week or so.

Ah damn, you might not give me any recognition then. I somewhat enjoyed Hyperdimension Neptunia, but I immediately gave up on the series when I purchased Sister's Generation and realized it was just a lazy sequel.

In all honestly, I have NO idea how people still buy those games.

...I don't think we can be friends. That family that Neps together stays together; you're already tearing this family apart, and you've just joined.

Okay, so maybe I'm the one tearing this family apart since I'm the only one with a creepy obsession with Neptunia, but I'd rather blame the rest of you.

Megadimension Neptunia VII is the only game for which I've gotten a Platinum trophy.

Oh we shall be friends, but I just need to see a Nepu game where they don't recycle assets and I'll be back on board. I would give Hyper Devotion Noire a shot, just because it's and SRPG, but they recycle assets.

UPDATE
By the way, I've added a column I've just written about my first experiences with the original Mega Man on my blog.

You're welcome. Truth be told I've been wanting to do a blog myself on the very topic of games I play. Maybe someday... maybe not.

I've only dabbled in Melty so I can't comment much regarding the two. Though you are correct, both titles share the same dev.
UNIEL to me just feels like it has a much heavier ground game than its predecessor which is what attracted me to it. The game is still as blistering fast as Melty. Def try it out for yourself if you have an interest in the game.
