Just Deserts Review

It’s no secret I’m a pretty big fan of visual novels. I’ve also really enjoyed joining the fandom right around when many VNs released are from small teams outside of Japan as well as it gives some interesting stories we might not have gotten such as Highway Blossoms. A game

The Orchard of Stray Sheep Review

Back when this title was first announced I was extremely curious and oddly hyped just because of the names. Seeing characters such as “Peeler” and “Casserole” should peak anyone’s interest so I went in expecting a weird comedy but came out with a slightly different experience. *Note: A review copy

Rhythm Heaven Megamix Review

Rhythm games have always sparked my interest, but I would normally find a way to avoid them. Not because I necessarily hated them, but because I really didn’t think they would keep me entertained for hours on end. Of course, I was dead wrong. 2015 was the year that I

Highway Blossoms Review

Thinking back on it, I can’t recall any visual novels explicitly stated to take place in the United States (save for a scene or two). Even with the abundance of western writers releasing their stories into the medium most still take place in Japan, a fantasy world or just a

Mighty No. 9 | Review

I backed Mighty No. 9 three years ago, and the first delay happened right around the end of Summer 2015. By then, they released an early demo of the game with two levels. It came in a .zip file which you had to extract manually, and all the files were

DOOM (Xbox One) | Review

It goes without saying that DOOM is an immensely influential franchise. When it first released in 1993, it skyrocketed into popularity, spawning a genre called “Doom-likes,” which we now call a “first-person shooter.” DOOM is still an immensely popular title, with a modding community still continually adding new .WAD packs

Ratchet and Clank (PS4) – Review

One of the most iconic dynamic duos in video game history have returned in a brand new game based on the movie, based on the game. Yes, you read that correctly; this game is based on the movie (releasing April 29th) that’s based on the original game made back in

Tom Clancy’s The Division (PS4) | Review

As you may know by this point, I’m a Tom Clancy fan. I love the books, and especially the games. So when The Division was first revealed, and the trailers first released, showing the world and gameplay, I was immediately on board. The idea of drop-in/drop-out multiplayer with a dynamic

Pokémon Yellow Special Pikachu Edition Review

Pokémon is 20 years old this year and to celebrate Nintendo decided to release the first generation on the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. Being a Pokémon fan I decided it was finally time to stop talking about how poorly Generation I had aged going off what others had said and
