Onechambara is a series that refuses to shy away from its overly sexist portrayal of women, and the apparent desire to watch nearly-nude women get covered in blood and gu...[Read More]

For the past few days, I’ve been playing nothing but Deadlight, and I’ve definitely been enjoying myself a lot. Developed by Tequila Works and published by Microsoft Studios, Deadlight is the third title in this year’s XBLA Summer of Arcade promotion.

This is the premise of AMY; at...[Read More]

Later on, however, I grew to absolutely love this game. Resident Evil 2 is one of the main reasons why I’m going to school for Game Design right now. I used to make maps of m...[Read More]

Unfortunately, Capcom doesn’t exactly feel the same way, and all information regarding the sixth installment in the long running survival horror series has been shrouded in a heavy blanket...[Read More]
