++Review: Fez

You can’t talk Fez without talking Phil Fish and his flash-in-the-pan tenure in the public eye. There, I mentioned him, and while I have a wide variety of opinions on the guy and some things he’s infamous for having said, this isn’t ++Good People. So, with that out of the way, let’s discuss the game, […]

RETROCITY – Skullgirls

Ah, Skullgirls. When the gaming media flipped the eff out over your announcement, I was stoic. When the tourney scene took to you like a fish to water, I was apathetic. When Steam decided to list you at $5.00 during a holiday sale… I couldn’t say “no.” Finding myself in the possession of one of […]

++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 […]

Developer Dead Alien Cult Reveals Viking Ghost

I love PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale. Probably more than I love the Smash Bros. franchise. Which means I found it particularly upsetting to discover that Sony had officially announced they would be discontinuing support for the game, cementing the roster as-is, and rolling out only one more balance patch, and possibly one more map pack. […]

SEGA Announces Blade Arcus from Shining

Persona 4 Arena started the trend, and AquaPazza kept it going. Now, Sega looks to co-opt an odd property for a fighting game, and it’s a doozey. Shining Force. One of their most treasured, longest standing properties is calling an audible and switching things up in “Blade Arcus from Shining.” It’s a weird name, for […]

Following in the footsteps of the wildly popular and equally successful Trigger Happy Havoc, Goodbye Despair changes the setting by sweeping 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 – 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 […]
