It’s time to check out Ni no Kuni II, a good game that sadly lives in the shadow of its excellent original.

At least this one doesn’t yell “NEATO!” every two minutes.

Violence in videogames, a classic political scapegoat of the 1990s and early 2000s, is back in the spotlight as Trump’s bewildered administration resurrects an old blame game.
And a game is what it is. A rigged circus game designed only to entertain and placate the masses. The “violence in videogames” debate is a vapid waste of time, and the time wasters know it.

Metabombed: Dynasty Warriors 9 Is ‘Seizure Inducing Garbage’

It’s no secret by now that I despise Dynasty Warriors 9, not just because of what it DID to Zhang He, but because it’s a derivative, corner-cutting mess of “open world” bullshittery, so desolate and ugly it’s almost indistinguishable from a Steam Direct asset flip.

An easy early nominee for 2018’s worst games list, Tecmo Koei’s cynical farce has come close to killing my love for the series overall.

The game has its defenders, those who somehow think it’s “ambitious” to chase a trend years after it stopped being fashionable. Nonetheless, I’m clearly not alone in seeing this game for what it is – a desperate attempt at relevance by a company that tried to fix what wasn’t broken.

And of course… that’s led to a classic case of METABOMBING!
