Review: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone

Vocaloid Revolution Let me start this off by saying that I’ve always had an affinity for rhythm games.

Review: Welkin Road

Jump ‘n’ Grab The indie gaming scene has always been quite an interesting section of the industry. While many of these developers generally lack the resources that most traditional ones have at their disposal, it’s not uncommon for the games they produce to focus on elements that interest them and try to build entire games around it.
