A Short Spoiler-Free Review. In terms of both story and gameplay, this is the quintessential modern Tales of game. If you have never tried this series before, then definitely try out Tales of Arise.
Major Spoilers for Seasons 1 and 2.
Don't waste your time watching this. The reviews saying it was good is further proof that mainstream reviews are genuinely less than worthless.
Earlier this year, I was hoping to get through more books to read. I tried reading a chapter of Haught’s book and Stanton’s book each day prior to reviewing them. Long story short, it burned me out far more than I expected. I had assumed the burn out I was feeling would go away, but … Continue reading Life Update: Reading Two Books at a Time was a Huge Mistake, Writing has Slowed to a Snail’s Pace, and Thoughts on Contemporary Life
If you’re an adult who has Amazon Prime, give yourself the pleasure of watching this wonderful film. This film gets a 10 / 10 in every category. One of the most beautiful depictions of LGBT intimacy and love.
What is the point of writing sexual scenarios, but not having the maturity to show scenes of either sexual intimacy or sexual violence? This is an absolute failure of a book.
The Porn flick I couldn't help but watch while slogging through Brandon Sanderson's Warbreaker.
This book is so dull and boring that I had to stop and watch a porn flick on Netflix to help get through it.
This will contain spoilers, I'm a huge fan of Takumi Miyajima's works (Tales of the Abyss and Tales of Symphonia) and I was excited to see her new story in this game.
The Implosion of US Credibility is now an unequivocal fact. If this doesn’t thoroughly destroy US credibility, then nothing will. The US was too stupid to avoid self-harm.
Spoilers for a Boring, Paper-thin story.
Note: This will contain Major Spoilers.
@JoshLafazan speared #Casteism Bill into #Nassau county due to @JamesMc93478389 head of @nassaucountypba. Will @NassauExecutive sign this #Caste bill into Law?
Major Spoilers for the Film Coherence (2013). Just my thoughts on it.
This will contain Mild Spoilers, but you should NOT spoil yourself before watching this film. Do yourself a favor and go in blind.
Spoilerific synopsis of the events of the plot in the Third Paragraph.
There will be No Spoilers in this Review.
As expected of the exceptional nature of egregious US stupidity, the preventable COVID-19 infection is now back to lockdown levels as of two days ago and reached approximately over 100,000 cases yesterday because approximately 18 million Americans refuse to get vaccinated on a completely preventable infection that usually ends-up killing them once they contract it. … Continue reading American Exceptionalism Strikes Back: COVID-19 Cases Rise Back Up to Previous Lockdown Levels
First and foremost, this had to be one of the worst formatted books I have ever had the displeasure to read on Kindle. What kind of idiot decides to make every chapter into a shortened font size with exclusively Bold text? This was an eyesore to read. If, like me, you’re still curious and wish … Continue reading Religion is Dying by James A. Haught is a Poorly Formatted Mess
Previously, Gematsu made a very big stink out of Niche Gamer plagiarizing their web content. Evidently that didn’t stop the astute businessman and Founder of Gematsu, Sal Romano, from using their website to espouse his personal anti-Trans hatred and bigotry on the review of Nocturne HD Remaster, which he admits in the comments had nothing … Continue reading Sal Romano, Founder of Gematsu, espousing Anti-Trans hatred in Rival website, Niche Gamer
This will contain spoilers for Shin Megami Tensei IV, Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse, Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne, and Persona 5.
Yesterday, I took the time to watch this Youtube video, and it reminded me of a problem I kept noticing among Western Indie Developers. Also, I want to be clear that I am not trying to suggest Japanese indie development is any better, we all know of notorious Kickstarter campaigns like Mighty Number 9, but … Continue reading Why do Western Indie Developers constantly take the wrong lessons from Japanese games?
This will contain some Spoilers for Dorehedore Season 1 on Netflix.
The Myth of the Dying Church by Glenn T. Stanton is a trainwreck of exaggerated claims, bigotry towards Christians, and an appeal to Collective Insanity.
The “QOL” features are made for people who hate Disgaea and hate good games.
India’s 2021 Pew Research Survey may have accidentally shattered all hope for an Ex-Muslim movement, probably disproved any Ex-Hindu movement, and destroyed Western News Media credibility. All because Indians took a survey and gave honest answers to the non-partisan Pew Research Center.
One of the most notorious things about a game with six endings is that people will obviously try to do the route with the most extra content and then unfortunately quit. There's so many games out now, unlike the PS2 era, that nobody cares to or even has time for a second, third, or fourth … Continue reading Rethinking the Reason Endings of SMT3 Nocturne and Why They’re Not Useless: Musubi
The Main games of the Disgaea series are one of the very, very few series I go in blind because I am accustomed to fantastic quality games and simply expect it. This game has absolutely and irreparably destroyed that level of respect for this series.
Nocturne HD Remaster makes it clearer: The Manikins represented Fascism under Futomimi.
With the full release of Nocturne HD Remaster, here's a short General Impressions for people on the fence or curious about early game experiences from someone who got the Deluxe early access edition.
The parallels between Satou and Yuuna in their treatment of Shiho.
This will contain major spoilers for both Mortal Kombat 11, MK11 Aftermath, and Tekken 7.
Warning, this’ll be ramble-y and contain comparisons between the show and my personal life.
Well, that earlier expiration date by Fanatical was wrong, evidently.
Why Omni-man is the Real Hero and Invincible is the True Villain
Oath of Ahimsa Before I begin, I want to make it unequivocally clear that my support for political activism in the interests of defending Dharma is strictly in terms of non-violence. This is about challenging bad beliefs, bad ideas, and the cultish practices of this particular Christian institution. Most Hindus, Buddhists, Jains, Sikhs, and … Continue reading A Self-Updating List of the Catholic Church’s Contemporary History of Child Abuse and Anti-Human Rights stances
The teachings of Jesus Christ lead to the rape of children.
Is the US even worth talking about anymore? We know it never leads to anything good. The US seems genuinely too stupid to improve itself.

Spoilers for both Seasons 1 and 2.
More of my Tinfoil One Piece theories.
Priced at $10.75.
Minor spoilers for Episode 4.
Massive Spoilers for the Attack on Titan Manga within.
Despite contemporary books, like Elizabeth Miller’s The Dracula Handbook, rightfully pointing out clear failures in connecting Bram Stoker’s supposed knowledge with the historic Vlad Dracula and – to a lesser extent – pointing out certain historic inaccuracies regarding supposed Dracula Castles, I found this to be an enjoyable read overall. The only other criticism I’d … Continue reading In Search of Dracula by Raymond T. McNally and Radu Florescu
Fanatical is providing a Steam Preorder Sale for select countries until April 6th, 2021.
Note: This’ll probably be proven wrong or is way too obvious of a plot twist. But, hey, all in good fun.
Mild Spoilers up until the end of Episode 5
Flawed, but ultimately a good read.
From RWBY, to Blood of Zeus, to Cannon Busters, to so much more. Westerners pilfering of Japan’s superior artform won’t breed success.
I honestly tried to like it, but it was too disappointing. Mild Spoilers up to Episode 8 of Cannon Busters.
This review will contain no spoilers. Long Live Quellcrist Falconer.
The epitome of "meh" in Anime form.
Skip, Avoid, Don't Watch. Minori Kushieda ruined this Anime.
If anyone picked this up, read the first three chapters, and concluded that it was all rubbish then they would be well within their rights to do so. While there is a good display of competence and critique in the latter 6 chapters, they’re spaced quite horribly and jarring to read.
I’ll just get right to my contentions with this dumpsterfire of a First Season. This’ll be a General Impressions, because I couldn’t finish the last two episodes of Season 1 due to how stupid and awful it became.
This Review / Analysis contains Massive Spoilers I decided to marathon this TV series out of interest. When first hearing of it, I was given the impression it would be better to watch a dubbed version and in a full marathon to completion instead of an episode-by-the-week formula. After having finished it yesterday, I don’t … Continue reading Carole and Tuesday Anime Review and Analysis (Netflix Series)

Hardcore Gaming 101 Presents The Unofficial Guide to Shin Megami Tensei and Persona Kindle Edition is an Unreadable Disappointment
Shocker: reading Wikipedia pages and listening to Noam Chomsky's talks aren't a substitute for a Social Science education.
Evidently, the only lie about this woman’s tortures of innocent little girls was the claim about bathing in their blood. That was made-up approximately 100 years after her death. Everything else about her tortures seems credible.
For any prospective Blogger who wants the opinion of someone who spent 5 years blogging and my criticism of the current blogging advice articles.
One of the perks of a Pandemic is I managed to finish reading longer books this year.
If you care about peacefully fighting back against such tactics by working to de-convert these gullible Indians who’ve fallen for the narcissistic ravings of Jesus Christ, please consider obtaining my ebook, Questioning Christianity: Book Edition. It is available for free from now until December 27th 2020 at 12 PM PST.
Mixed feelings - the anime series, Death and Rebirth film, and the End of Eva are definitely meant for teenagers. I explain why in the review and give scores for each.
For a limited time, both the Kindle versions of Faith in Doubt (UK Only) and Questioning Christianity: Book Edition will be on sale starting from December 23rd 2020 and end within the month of December.
"The Christian share of the population is down and religious “nones” have grown across multiple demographic groups: white people, black people and Hispanics; men and women; in all regions of the country; and among college graduates and those with lower levels of educational attainment. Religious “nones” are growing faster among Democrats than Republicans, though their ranks are swelling in both partisan coalitions. And although the religiously unaffiliated are on the rise among younger people and most groups of older adults, their growth is most pronounced among young adults." - Pew Research Survey of 2019
I need to bleach my brains out from the sheer stupidity that I just read. I can only blame myself for having the curiosity to read this dumpster fire. Alas, for every Nietzsche, Gautama Buddha, and Hitchens; there’ll be a Ludovici, a Jesus Christ, and an Armin Navabi.
Finished a new ebook made up of earlier blog posts to help peacefully criticize Christianity and further stymie Christian conversions in India and elsewhere.
A response to Vipulamsa Varnyagunojjwala This piece is disputing the following article on Medium: https://medium.com/@Paratpara/was-gautama-buddha-a-hindu-11b5468a2b3e This is the video he was attempting to refute. Varnyagunojjwala doesn’t seem to have much of a knowledge of history in Ancient India: Buddha “abandoning” his family was normal for Kshatriya princes at the time as they were expected to … Continue reading A response to Vipulamsa Varnyagunojjwala Supposed Refutation of “Was Gautama Buddha a Hindu?”
Why I No Longer discuss my Fantasy Novel Ideas in Writing or Fantasy Subreddits and other Internet Forums that are about Writing Novels
I just watched six episodes of this very boring and banal snoozefest on a whim; to its credit, it had me hooked up until episode 6 where the plot became your typical boring, generic crap as expected of the barbaric culture of the Western world. In what could have been an interesting plot of Gods … Continue reading Blood of Zeus (2020): A Netflix Original “Anime” That Disappoints as Expected
https://youtu.be/nuv1Rs_VcKo?t=8017 At 2:13:37 Credits go to Buffmaister for rapidly going through the entire game on Merciful (with the boss battles being on Hard mode) for the True Demon Ending route on the Dante version. Dante version has no epilogue just like before. No changes and while the scene after defeating Kagutsuchi is absolutely fantastic in … Continue reading Completely Disappointed with the HD Remaster of Nocturne: Last TDE scene is the 4:3 Bordered PS2 version
I understand it is a Remaster of the second re-released version in Japan meaning the Amala Labyrinth was the extra bosses and dungeons from years prior. We’re getting Dante as DLC likely for licensing reasons pertaining to Capcom along with the addition of voice acting, but the direction of these other planned DLC has really … Continue reading Progressively less enthused by Atlus Japan’s direction of the Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne HD Remaster

Can these self-stylized "rationalists" please rationally explain why they're falsely claiming to be Ex-Hindu groups?
Toxicity as villainy. How SMT Nocturne presents a well-written toxic human being as arguably the true villain of the main plot of SMT Nocturne.
How can anyone who claims to be threatened with death by Islamic Jihadists, then use the term "Hindu Jihadist" in reference to angry and thoughtless Twitter responses?
Strange Journey Redux / Deep Strange Journey is full of revisions that change it from an intriguing lore, setting, and mystery into complete shit.
All one needs is an imam / Sheikh to approve the "grade" of this Hadith for extremists of this religious faith to begin the bloodletting.
Perhaps the laughable incompetence of this so-called "academic discipline" should finally cease to awe me with its sheer stupidity? Eli fails to explain what this "method" is or why criticizing the method is invalid. In fact, he fails to defend current Indologist methodology at all and relies upon sophistry. Hamlet's origins are popularly understood … Continue reading Eli Franco’s “review” of the Nay Science reveals the shocking incompetence of modern-day Indology
@Max_Fisher - a typical incompetent buffoon of a “Western journalist” – seems to have screwed up his data. As is typical of Western buffoonery and the uniqueness of American Exceptionalism – that is, the sheer stupidity of Americans that continues to astonish the world.
“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you.” - Christopher Hitchens
#BlockExMuslims Because They Hate Us #Hindus. If Ex-Muslims antagonize Hindus, then please consider taking part in this campaign and voluntarily block them all and be indifferent to whatever news involves them from now on.
With their willful attempts to stoke controversy, I've decided to make videos Exposing the scam that Ex-Muslims run at this moment and time.
Be warned it spoils SMT1, SMT2, SMT3 Nocturne, SMT4, and a bunch of animes made by Go Nagai and Megazone 23.
Note: This'll contain Major Spoilers for Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha versus King Abaddon and Major Spoilers for Shin Megami Tensei III: Nocturne.
A reminder for an "atheist" subreddit claiming to oppose pedophilia in the Catholic Church, they seem keen on shutting down group conversations of those exposing "funding" campaigns that support the Catholic Church. That includes a permanent ban for even discussing the issue and criticizing them.
Don't mind this, just me being a total nerd. lol
From my own anecdotal observations, I can only conclude that Free Speech works. People who don't believe this are only relinquishing their own Power.
One of my favorite games ever is getting an HD Remaster and I couldn’t be more excited! >:)
The Anime's Positives far outweigh any negatives. I am genuinely surprised and pleased with the serendipity of choosing to watch this 12-episode series.
Exposing the lies and hateful teachings of the Bible in defense of Sanatana Dharma, rational empiricism, and Indian culture.
This is one small step in destroying the hateful teachings of Jesus Christ and exposing the lies of Christianity in defense of Sanatana Dharma, rational empiricism, and Indian culture.
Note: This review will contain Major Spoilers for Tales of Crestoria, Tales of Zestiria, and Tales of Graces F. This’ll be more of a “stream of consciousness” type of review, because I’m not sure how I feel about this game. More precisely, I’m unsure if I can say the positives and negatives outweigh each other … Continue reading Tales of Crestoria Review and Impressions
Eight Hours of Power Outage and 4 Days of Internet Outage. The US is really aiming to snatch 3rd World Country status.
Examining the unresolved mystery in SMT Nocturne: Who was the Lady in Black? Surprisingly, it probably isn't Paimon. Read and find out why. Here are my best guesses based on my research into the best kept secret of SMT Nocturne.
Ghost of Tsushima is a Must-Buy Game. It is the Best PS4 Exclusive game released this year. It far outshines everything I anticipated regarding its hype.
Japanese developers are being scapegoated due to racism in the "gaming journalist" community. From Kazuma Hashimoto falsely accusing Japanese politicians of being White Nationalists, to Annette Polis deleting comments of ethnic minorities who point out Atlus's positive LGBT representation, to Jenni Lada's distortions, and finally the racism of Laura Kate Dale and Allegra Frank against Atlus Japan.
Well, after extensively emailing Ali A. Rizvi, he seems to have doubled down on his lack of professionalism, general incompetence, and poor business management skills by deliberately deceiving his Secular Jihadist viewership. Update: After making this complaint, they've added the blog post as they had initially promised me.
When Ex-Muslim Activists in the West can't win arguments, they resort to willfully lying. Update: He has responded.
It would seem that backlash helps. The Podcast was about my 5-part critique of Ex-MNA called The 5-Lenses. Here is the Link to The 5-Lenses blog post for newcomers: https://jarinjove.com/2020/03/16/five-lenses-1of5/

Why Dracula is ethically and religiously justified in his war against the people of Wallachia.
If you need convincing that Eirikrjs has no idea what he's talking about, then please give this a read. I debunk Eirikrjs by quoting SMT Nocturne itself.
When criticizing racism and pointing out LGBTQ representation gets you banned on Siliconera because you disagree with their hatred for Japanese people. Japanese culture, and their Social Justice Mod who bans Ethnic Minorities for disagreeing with them on Social Justice issues
When treated unfairly, one can either bury one's head in the sand or challenge the unfairness directly to make a change. Link to full debate inside.
While criticizing the pedophile cult of Catholicism, Hemant Mehta's associates seem keen on deceiving their Atheist Readers into funding the Catholic Church under the deceptive guise of stamping out Casteism.
It's sometimes both good and necessary to remind ourselves of when positive efforts bear fruit.
The Western Ex-Muslim movement is a scam. A group of misanthropic twitter whiners who seem keen on reframing Free Speech for their own convenience to stroke their own egos instead of working to genuinely help Ex-Muslims who need their human rights defended. I learned this the hard way by getting scammed by the Secular Jihadist podcast.
SMT Nocturne is referencing the Qliphoth, not the Sephirot as Eirikjrs claimed; there's some evidence to show Eirikrjs knew it and deliberately lied.
Exposing the lies of a privileged racist
Stand against Persecution of Hindus and Anti-Hindu Bigotry!
This polemic is in response to a recent article revealing the Trump administration's rollback of healthcare for the Transgender community on the fatuous basis that they're somehow defending science. Liberal Progressives have absolutely failed the Transgender community. Instead of focusing on changing laws to give them basic human rights, it has become a witch hunt … Continue reading US Liberal Progressives have absolutely failed the Transgender community
I managed to attain Rank 231 in global rankings for the recent Berserk event! I know it's fairly minor, but this achievement - which reminds me of defeating the superboss of DDS1 many years ago - has me so hyped for SMT5. I hope it's great like all the mainline games I've played so far. … Continue reading Dx2 Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Update
There's not much I can add that hasn't already been said before, so I've opted to share Sham Sharma's video because I feel that he spoke on this issue thoughtfully and articulately.
I have spent three days playing this game non-stop, partly out of boredom due to COVID-19 still being a potential problem in my local area despite the lifting restrictions (for instance, it is still required to wear a mask when going to places or you'll be kicked out), partly out of irritability from lack of … Continue reading Dx2 Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Review
Look forward to it.
Please Note: This will contain Major Spoilers for the entire Steins;Gate series which include the Steins;Gate and Steins;Gate 0 Anime, Steins;Gate and Steins;Gate 0 Visual Novels, and the Steins;Gate film. For the purposes of this thematic analysis, I'll be exploring the subtexts of the Steins;Gate and Steins;Gate 0 Series regarding themes that I'm genuinely surprised … Continue reading Thematic Analysis of the Steins;Gate Series
A brilliant sequel to a brilliant story.
What the fuck are the stupid people in the Reaction and Anime community whining about? It's like as soon as someone criticizes another Youtuber, suddenly there's a whole slew of people who want to get in on the "drama" and create their own pathetic videos in the hopes of gaining fame out of it
Pieter Friedrich's claims in his Adios Modi article don't hold up to scrutiny when probed deeper.
Pieter Friedrich claims to be an analyst, but what are his credentials?
Looking through the series, I feel like Jesse Pinkman's character makes less and less sense as it went on and that he just existed to be antagonistic to Walter. The reasoning for their "partnership" feels so out of place even up to Season 3. By contrast, the other characters feel like their motivations make sense … Continue reading Breaking Bad Review and General Impressions
A slow-paced story that ultimately has amazing characters, plot, narrative, and endings. Definitely worth reading/playing for Visual Novel fans.
Let's say there are two postmodernists who believe that all forms of truth are relative, but hold different internal values and judgments on problems in their society and they sit together to converse on their disagreements. Let us call these two Postmodernists: Liberal Postmodernist and Conservative Postmodernist. Liberal Postmodernist is concerned by the wife-beating and … Continue reading The Double-Postmodernist Thought Experiment
It might just be my current mood due to the lockdown and quarantine, and I hope I don't continue feeling this way, but I feel a strange sense of emptiness that's only grown worse. I can't bring myself to focus on anything in particular, especially not the novel that I had hoped to place the … Continue reading Disillusioned With Enlightenment Values and My Commitments to Personal Integrity
There's no point in worrying over things you can't control, so instead focus on the free time that's available for you.
The Final Part of The Five Lenses: A Hindu Rebuttal Against Ex-Muslims of North America and their Ex-Muslim Cohorts.
The Federal Reserve is using US Taxpayer monies to bailout Bank of America so its rich investors can sell their stocks and taxpayers foot the bill. Thanks Libertarian and Ayn Rand-loving Americans. So much for Free Market Economics.
To have faith in Pakistan is the moral and intellectual equivalent of having faith in the terrorist organization of ISIS creating a successful country. To identify as Pakistani is the moral and intellectual equivalent of self-identifying as a citizen of ISIS.
My third essay is dedicated to examining Ex-MNA from the lens of Secularism. This is the Third of the Five Lenses.
Note: My second essay is dedicated to examining Ex-MNA from my own personal experience. This is the Second of the Five Lenses.
Note: My first essay is dedicated to examining Ex-MNA's views from the standpoint of being an atheist. This is the First of the Five Lenses.
A lot has happened since my last update; an ongoing presidential election in the US with surprising upsets, the Delhi riots in India, my own discussions with Ex-Muslims of North America members on Twitter over their selective outrage, and so much more. I didn't want to make an angry retort as a blog post, so … Continue reading Update on my views regarding Ex-Muslims of North America (Ex-MNA)
My experiences this year have taught me that I'm getting too old and I need to sell simpler books for non-fiction because long books definitely don't work out for readers. My book ended-up being too bloated and any sharing I did online didn't work out. Sometimes, I wonder why I bother and end-up in a … Continue reading Goodbye to 2019
