[Novel] Sacred Hunger (Barry Unsworth)

Sacred Hunger


An interesting historical novel centered on British slave trade in the early days of colonized America.

I ended up being more interested in the setting than the actual characters or the plot though… which was sometimes pretty hard to follow as it jumped between a million different points of view.

Interesting historical setting
So many characters and different POVs it’s easy to get lost
Enlightening on the early days of slave trade
The pacing can feel a bit slow at times

[Nukige] Real Eroge Situation!



A thoroughly unremarkable nukige. While not terrible in any particular way, there’s simply no reason to play it given the vast amount of better stuff available.

Some nice ero here and there
Doesn’t offer a single thing that would set it apart from a billion of other and better nukige

[Game] Battle Realms

Battle Realms


A competent but somewhat outdated real time strategy game. It had me at first, but final campaign missions turned into a bit of a slog.

Interesting setting
Outdated visuals
Satisfying real-time strategy game-play
Controls not always as responsive as you’d like
You don’t get to play all factions in the campaign

[Novel] Devil All The Time (Donald Ray Pollock)

The Devil All the Time


A horror novel where the actual depiction of life in a rural part of the country fills you with more horror than any lousy boogeymen.

Interesting, likable, relatively profound characters
Doesn’t really offer anything to blow your mind or anything
Enthralling plot full of realistic horror
Enlightening on the rural societies in early-mid XX century in United States
Thought-provoking on how fucked up life could be

[Game] Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare


The innovative sci-fi additions to jumping and actually (almost) coherent story make Call of Duty Advanced Warfare probably the best one in the series since 4.

Good visuals
Still feels a bit too familiar for veterans of the series
Good, polished shooting game-play
No memorable music
Challenging difficulty
