Review – Tokyo Xanadu (VITA)

June 29, 2017

Since the release of Trails of Cold Steel in the west, I’ve been in love with Falcom’s games. With just a modest budget, they craft masterful experiences full of heart and detail, with a special charm not seen from many other companies. So when I learned that Aksys games was…

Review: Valkyria Revolution (PS4)

June 27, 2017

You could be easily forgiven for not knowing a new Valkyria game was on its way. Between Sega entering another potential boom period with multiple major titles dropping, and 2017 in general just being stacked with fantastic releases across the board, Valkyria Revolution has somehow managed to sneak under practically…

Review: Puyo Puyo Tetris (PS4)

June 12, 2017

Growing up with Tetris and Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine, I never thought I would see these two completely different puzzle games join forces. Little did I know that someday these puzzlers would not only unite, but do so in an adorable way with intense depth and strategy to boot….

Review – Guilty Gear XRD Rev 2 (PS4)

May 26, 2017

One of the best stories of the last couple years when it comes to the fighting genre has been the rebirth of the Guilty Gear franchise. While it wasn’t something I was personally on board with at first (you can blame a silly BlazBlue vs. Guilty Gear turf war for…

Review – The Caligula Effect (VITA)

May 24, 2017

If there’s one thing I never stop shilling, it’s Satoshi Tadashi’s fantastic writing in the Persona 2 and Digital Devil Saga duologies. When The Caligula Effect was announced in early 2016, I was ecstatic to see him back to write a whole new game, especially one published by staff favorite…

Review – Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception (PS4/VITA)

May 23, 2017

How much do you want to bet you won’t be able to pronounce Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception perfectly on the first try? A big game with a big title and an even bigger heart, Utawarerumono is a franchise of visual novel/strategy game hybrids, and this marks the first time the…

Review – Period: Cube ~Shackles of Amadeus~ (VITA)

May 6, 2017

The Otome genre of games sits in a rather obscure spot of the already niche visual novel genre. They are romance games made for a female audience in mind, where you choose between a variety of charming gentlemen to fall in love with. There is a lot of heart in…

First Look Review – Persona 5 (PS4)

April 4, 2017

As the old saying goes, “patience is a virtue”, and not many games have tested the patience of their rabid fanbase quite like Persona 5 has. Originally starting development in 2009 not long after Persona 4‘s release, the game went through a multitude of delays, landing far far away from…

The 24-Hour Dreamless Dreamcast Marathon Recap

September 26, 2016

Wait a minute! Didn’t that marathon happen over a week ago? Sure as heck did, but now we have all had sufficient time to recover, catch up on our sleep, and wonder how we survived another 24 hours of insanity! For myself, I really thought this year would be the…

And now we play the waiting game

September 15, 2016

These are the last few hours before the 24-Hour Dreamcast Marathon where I sit around and wait for everyone to storm my apartment with retro insanity, baked goods, smiling faces, and questionable intensions. We’ll be joining forces from different corners of the country – all for (y)our entertainment! But to pass…
