Review: Asteroids: Recharged

Early gaming has always fascinated me to some extent. Given that video gaming itself can largely be tracked to scientists goofing off on an oscilloscope to eventually grow into a lucrative and profitable economic mainstay is ridiculous feat in such a short amount of time. While they are merely a shadow of their former selves

Review: Panorama Cotton

The Cotton games are a series of shoot ’em ups (or cute ’em ups, if you prefer) that haven’t seen much popularity outside of their native Japan. Up until this year, Cotton: Fantastic Night Dreams, the franchise’s first entry, was the only one to receive a North American release on the TurboGrafx-CD in 1993, and

Review: Tandem: A Tale of Shadows

It’s that time of year again. The autumnal season is in full swing, and our current proximity to Halloween could very well move you to seek out TV shows, movies, music, and video games to commemorate the month of harrowing haunts and spectral spirits. There’s no shortage of spooky titles asking for your time, but

Review: Knockout Home Fitness

Wait, what did that title say? Something about home fitness? Oh no, that means I have to get up and move again… Over the years, many have tried mixing a game console with physical activity. All the way back on the NES, there was the Power Pad mat controller with World Class Track Meet. Then

Review: Bravely Default II [PC]

When the original Bravely Default landed on the 3DS back in 2014, it stood as direct confirmation that there was still a market for high quality, turn-based JRPGs. It sported a job-based combat system and a party reminiscent of 2010’s Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light, a game that itself took heavy inspiration from

Review: Hindsight 20/20 – Wrath of the Raakshasa

I’m always somewhat skeptical when it comes to plot-based decision making in games. Typically, you’ll be offered one of three choices in every situation: something a nice person would do, something a mean person would do, and something that falls somewhere in between the two.

Review: No More Heroes III

Man, it sure has been a bit of a wait for some fresh and traditional Travis Touchdown action. Over a decade, to be precise. It hasn’t been completely devoid of his presence, what with multiple ports of the original two Wii games as well as a side entry in the form of Travis Strikes Again

Review: Witch Spring 3 RE:Fine

Despite their increasing popularity, I am not a fan of mobile games. Maybe it sounds elitist, but I think there’s just something more enticing about playing games on the big screen and being able to see the worlds crafted by game developers in their full glory. That’s why I was really happy when Witch Spring

Review: Foreclosed

Cyberpunk is one of the most interesting subgenres of science fiction. It’s a demonstrably solid framework for writing flawed and morally gray characters, beaten down by a world brought to the edge of collapse by the whims of puppeteering corporations and capitalism run amok. Often, it explores the question mark of human consciousness, individuality, and

Review: Fire Tonight

You know, seeing media set in eras that you’ve personally lived through (even at a very young age) is weird. On one hand, you’re already accustomed to many of the aesthetics and everything else surrounding it. On the other, it’s a window for those who haven’t actually lived through it. No matter how you slice

Review: Fuga: Melodies of Steel

Never before have I felt both so excited and so afraid to review a title before. The latest in the Little Tail Bronx series of loosely connected games, I’ve been a fan of the series for some time now. However, I also knew the story would absolutely break my heart. It’s a tale of vengeance,

Review: Cris Tales

There’s no denying that Cris Tales is one of those games that immediately catches your eye. Regardless of how you first come across it, something about the art style adorning the videos and images promoting the game (like the one directly above what you’re reading now) draws you in to find out more.

Review: Samurai Warriors 5

When I first booted up Samurai Warriors 5, I wasn’t sure what to expect. On the one hand, I’d played Warriors games before, and was well aware of their penchant for delivering a unique action game experience while also not switching things up too much. On the other hand, it was clear that this particular

Review: The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles

It’s been nearly five years since we’ve seen an entry in the Ace Attorney series arrive in the west, but at long last the wait is over. Coming to Switch, PS4, and PC on July 27, 2021, The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles is a remaster of a pair of 2017 3DS Ace Attorney titles that

Review: Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin

I’m going to cut to the chase with this one, folks. I’ve got quite the backlog of games I haven’t finished or own but haven’t played yet. What tends to happen, especially for RPGs, even though I love them, is I invest quite a bit of time in them, get distracted by another new game,

Review: Winds of Change

Growing up as a furry in the late 90s and early 2000s, it seemed unthinkable that it’d ever be some degree of mainstream. Sure, animators on various cartoons were undoubtedly throwing us a bone here and there, but the thought of something unapologetically made by furries, for furries, escaping our niche corner of the internet

Review: Ninja Gaiden Master Collection

If you’re anything like me, you’ve always looked at bone-crushingly hard games with equal parts respect and abject fear. From the NES days to now, we’ve always had that one game that other gamers point to as the pinnacle of difficulty. For some it’s the Souls franchise. Others point to the usual suspects like Contra,

Review: Wonder Boy: Asha in Monster World

Wonder Boy – a classic Sega franchise from the Master System/Genesis era that has been going through a sudden renaissance in the past few years. Having originally gone dormant in 1994, the series suddenly saw a return in 2016 with Wonder Boy Returns, a remake of the original game. However, it wasn’t until 2017 when

Review: Layers of Fear 2

A while back I’d played through a little indie horror title centering around a depraved artist called Layers of Fear, and enjoyed it. Years passed, and then what do I see but a sequel arriving on the Switch! Of course, this is but a port of a PC version which launched two years ago, leading

Review: What the Dub?!

During the great indoors-ening of the past year, my group of friends has had to find ways to hang out and do things together while staying in our own homes. Most of us being into gaming, this usually defaulted to playing some kind of multiplayer game while chatting on Discord. More often than not, that
