Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

Kretzschmarmark/ May 2, 2020/ Uncategorized

Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls It is okay to admit that I have too many games and that I can put them down if I’m not feeling them. I am back to playing new games in my library following my Suikoden V post. However, I cannot say that this latest game held my attention very long. I was late

Suikoden V

Kretzschmarmark/ April 20, 2020/ Uncategorized

Suikoden V A retrospective of the last true Suikoden game. What happens when the tedium of quarantine and nostalgia collide? If you’re like me, you fall back on one of your trap games. You know the kind of game I’m referring to. A game that you’ve played at least five times, yet you can’t help yourself and inevitably replay it

Ace Combat 7

Kretzschmarmark/ April 10, 2020/ Uncategorized

Ace Combat 7 Fly the Angry Skies! Covid-19 has impacted all aspects of our lives, including how we work, socialize, prioritize responsibilities, and even exercise (working out from home has taught me that my endurance was nowhere near as good as I believed, so that’s the one good thing I will take from this experience). However, since my last post,

Punch Club

Kretzschmarmark/ January 3, 2020/ Uncategorized

Punch Club It’s certainly a genre-melder, but some mechanics prevent it from being fun for long stretches. This year’s already off to a complicated start, isn’t it? I’ve always been skeptical about resolutions, but one of mine in 2020 is to make a dent in my game library. On top of everything else I must do this year, it’s a

PlayStation Classic

Kretzschmarmark/ December 26, 2019/ Uncategorized

PlayStation Classic Turns out devising a game library for one of the most iconic game consoles is quite difficult. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. I thought I’d do something a little different and write about one of my new holiday toys: the PlayStation Classic. Fittingly, the original PlayStation was my primary present during Christmas 1997, so it’s fun to revisit

MLB The Show 2018

Kretzschmarmark/ December 19, 2019/ Uncategorized

MLB The Show 2018 It’s Going…Going…Gone from My Library! Well, that was one busy semester. Now that it’s finally in the books, I can finally start blogging about my collection again. I’m a pretty big sports fan, and I’ve played basically every sport genre out there (save for handball, but I’ve been curious about that game). My favorite sport is

Resident Evil 2 Remake

Kretzschmarmark/ October 30, 2019/ Uncategorized

Resident Evil 2 Remake The Three F’s: Fun, Frightening, and Frustrating! I was stashing the remake of Resident Evil 2 for a special occasion, so why not All Hallows’ Eve? There are a few series that just do it for me. Resident Evil is one of them. I didn’t get a PlayStation One until Christmas 1997, but the first installment

Silent Hill: Homecoming

Kretzschmarmark/ October 6, 2019/ Uncategorized

Silent Hill: Homecoming The Dark Lord bringeth coffee and donuts. After a work hiatus, it’s time to bring the blog back. I mean, how else am I going to discover if these games spark joy in my life unless I have some sort of way to be accountable? Since it’s October, what better time than to play some spooky survival

Yakuza 4

Kretzschmarmark/ July 6, 2019/ Uncategorized

Yakuza 4 I guess I just can’t quit this series. Aloha, everyone. I thought I would have more time this summer to update the blog. I had to focus on other writing responsibilities, which cut into the time I could devote to this project. Additionally, I did that thing we all do where I start like five games at the

Purrfect Date

Kretzschmarmark/ April 30, 2019/ Uncategorized

Purrfect Date Welp, let’s date some cats. Let’s go back to the Indieverse. What do you get when your gaming experience is better than Creature Romances, but does not quite have the replay value of Black Closet? Purrfect Date might be an example. I went into Purrfect Date without any expectations, especially since I was let down by Creature Romances.
