Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Is Making Me Itch

Tai from Digimon, hitting a computer screen.
If my television weren’t expensive, Digimon: Cyber Sleuth would make me hit it as well.

This game is killing me. And while the nostalgia hits me at 1,000, sometimes, it is just so incredibly painful to play. I suppose I should back up a bit and tell you how my experience with Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth has led me to this conclusion.

I’ve been playing this game, on and off, for a couple of months, and I’m not saying Digimon: Cyber Sleuth is a bad game. It’s actually really good. However, a few minor inconveniences taint the experience. I should start by going through some of the game’s good points. It’s a terrific old-school RPG, harkening back to the original Digimon games back on the PS1, making it pretty easy to grasp and play. Continue reading Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth Is Making Me Itch

The Nintendo Switch: Is the Revolution Here?

Nintendo finally reveals the true name of the NX, which is now officially known as the Nintendo Switch. And in a classic Nintendo way, they premiered it with the fancy video you see above. It’s been less than a week, and I’ve had a little time to ruminate over everything they have shown. However, I have to wonder, is the Switch everything we have dreamed of?

Pokemon Sun and Moon: The Novelty

Pokémon Sun and Moon's logos, side-by-side.
The next generation of pokémon looks bright.

I’m not going to talk about how the last two generations of Pokémon games have copied some of Digimon’s best moves. To be entirely honest – even though I prefer Digimon – the series, featuring digital monsters, copied Pokémon first. However, I will say this, the last two Pokémon games have found life in adding gameplay elements that we could only dream of on the playground. It’s the novelty of Sun and Moon that is winning new and old fans alike.

Renegade Plays is Back!!!

Renegade Plays is back at it again with the writing personal opinions and stuff! Where did I go? Well, blogging is hard and doing it while in school makes it even harder. So, I took some time off to focus on school and work.

However, like I said I’m back! I’ve learned a few things and I hope to use that to bring better content, better writing and more unfiltered opinions to the blog. I’m a die-hard gamer, and gaming and writing keep a bit of my sanity intact. So, I’m not ready to give this up.

Here are a few new things to expect:

  1. I’ve learned a bit that consistency is key, so I’ll be posting at least two times a week (three if I’m feeling frisky).
  2. More timely and relevant post. So if you’ve heard the story around a few gaming circles, then I’ll most likely have something to say about it soon.
  3. More personal post, meaning that while I’ll still talk about the news topics that are interesting to me, you’ll see more post about my experiences as a gamer.

If you’re a fan of the site, then wow …. thank you for sticking with this lonely blog. If you’re new, then I hope you enjoy what you read. Games, news, and opinions: that’s what I’m all about, I’ve got a new layout, new stories, and more to come. Welcome to Renegade Plays. Hope you have fun!
