I am TERRIBLE at fighting games, but for whatever reason I am cursed with enjoying them. It’s like I am a glutton for punishment, especially when they look pretty and have wacky complicated moves. Many times these games trick me into thinking I’ve actually gotten good at them and as soon as I go online I find out just how bad I am. BlazBlue: Chronophantasma on the PlayStation 3 is no different.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Little Orbit’s Falling Skies: The Game hits the nail on the head. Billing itself as a squad-based strategy title, the design and gameplay feel very reminiscent of a similar award-winning title where humans battle against an alien horde. Though not as strong as other titles of the same vein, Falling Skies does bring a few unique angles to the board. F...[Read More]
And lo, with yet another film of the legendary webslinger, we get another tie-in game. A lot of times, Spidey games, even if they’re flawed, are still fun. Does this one hold up?
I have covered a great many JRPG’s over the years, especially from NIS, and at first glance, Hyperdimension Neptuina Victory looks like the same old retread, and in many ways it is. The audience here is well established, but there are a great many attempts to court a more mainstream audience and prove that there are still surprises to be found in the plots of the genre. And while I give points for...[Read More]
Guilty pleasure games are the hardest ones to review. It’s mainly an issue of trying to figure out if the guilty pleasure is good enough to offset the glaring flaw. This has always been my issue with the Dead or Alive franchise. So, in this game, does it rise above its issues?
It’s been years since I played Resident Evil in my sister’s apartment. Now I don’t quite remember which Resident Evil it was, it was such a long time ago, but I remember how much of a rush it was to play it. I tend to stress out over survival horror games like these but I still enjoy them. Resident Evil Revelations was published by Capcom and developed by Capcom and Tose. The ga...[Read More]
Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a difficult game to talk about, not because of its fascinating take on RPG battle systems or the mechanical parts that make up the gameplay, although those parts are amazing, but because it is a difficult game to play emotionally. I have referred to it as “brutal” many times while talking to others about it. After many false starts and trying to write about ...[Read More]
We’ve known about if for a while now, due to various slips of the tongue, but last week, Square Enix came out and officially announced that Final Fantasy X would be getting a remastered HD edition for the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita systems. On top of that, however, we found out that Final Fantasy X-2 (otherwise known as Final Fantasy Dress-Up Adventure) would be included in the r...[Read More]
Years ago, I reviewed the original Fist of the North Star: Ken’s Rage. I enjoyed it, despite its faults, because it was the best game based on one of my favorite anime. Does the Koei sequel improve upon the original, or fall flat?
Nintendo had been making an incredibly strong, and frustrating, case for me to purchase a Wii U. Rayman Origins was one of the best platformers of the entire console generation, so Ubisoft’s announcement of Rayman Legends as exclusive to the Wii U was all but the nail in my coffin. The nail in my coffin was the announcement of Bayonetta 2 as exclusive to the Wii U, with Bayonetta being one o...[Read More]
It’s been a while since our last run of contests, but worry not, for we have returned with precious goods! The latest in Konami’s line of technical football simulations, Pro Evolution Soccer, is available here on the Playstation 3 platform. We have two copies available. We’re going to be doing things with a slight twist, this time, as we’re allowing the tweet entry to be pe...[Read More]
