++Review – Witch and the Hundred Knight

It is now, in the waning days of the previous console generation, that the straggling releases condemned to debut at the end of the line have the greatest chance of being completely overlooked. The causes for this are wide and varied, from the notoriously short print runs of the final few Saturn games, to the […]

Shaq-Fu: A Legend Reborn Announced… Wait, What?!

Shaquille O’Neal, apparently, wants to make another video game starring himself, based on a trash franchise from the Genesis era and… that, uh… that trailer looks really good, actually. REALLY good. Kind of like Afro Samurai with a dash of Saturday Morning thrown in. Huh. Maybe I’ll be following this one. I don’t at all […]

++Review – AquaPazza: AquaPlus Dream Match

I had no idea what I was getting into with AquaPazza, I’ll admit it. What I saw was a new anime fighting game from Examu (Arcana Hearts) and ATLUS. The last time I saw a new anime fighting game from ATLUS, it was Persona 4: Arena, and I absolutely loved it (and while I’ve never […]

++Review: King Arthur’s Gold

In order to describe King Arthur’s Gold, I find myself having to resort to comparison for the simple fact that it incorporates so many concepts from other genres, it’s impossible not to. Worms, Fat Princess, Team Fortress 2, Terraria… it’s no wonder the game defies conventional categorization. It is, again, no wonder that the vast […]

++Review – Stick it to the Man!

The frequency with which I play my consoles has become more and more dependent on my reviews schedule. Recently, the XBOX has taken a backseat to all of the PS3 titles I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing. As I’ve been on the PS3 a lot more recently, it’ll come as no surprise that I have […]

++Review – Guided Fate Paradox

Rogue was one of the most important video games ever created. It popularized dungeon crawling as a video game trope, and influenced games the likes of  Hack, NetHack, Diablo, Champions of Norrath, Baldur’s Gate, Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel, Torchlight, D&D: Heroes/Daggerdale, and virtually every other game in the Action sub-genre we’ve come to know (and […]

NIS America’s Phoenix Spaulding talks Danganronpa

++Interview: NIS America’s Phoenix Spaulding talks Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc. I woke up on Thursday morning with an appointment to keep. An appointment requiring the procurement of delicious pastries from a well known establishment that made their reputation on cream puffs. After picking up the puffs and driving an hour from Los Angeles to Santa […]

First Test Footage of Mighty No. 9 is LIVE!

This is a demonstration of what Mighty No. 9 will look like, and if you’ve backed the project (like yours truly), it only makes you that much more excited!

++Review: Puppeteer

Klonoa, Tomba, Pandamonium, Rayman, Megaman X7 & 8; the Playstation brand has been home to some of the most charming platformers ever created. This is a list that continues in perpetuity; a list that not only enumerates all of the exclusive platformers of the Playstation family of consoles, but one that makes a sizable contribution toward cataloging all of […]
