Yaga – A great tale of misfortune.

A people’s folklore serves several important functions, from passing oral history to younger generations to constructing a system of morality to warning against the dangers of the wilderness beyond the safety of home. Yaga, an action RPG from Romanian studio Breadcrumbs Interactive, evokes all of these interpretations through gameplay and setting. Equal parts fable and […]

Trials of Mana : Nostalgia Revamped

Square Enix frequently gets by on fan service, which is probably the best way to describe their 3D, Unreal-engine-powered remake of Trials of Mana. Originally released only in Japan as Seiken Densetsu 3 on the Super Famicon in 1995, the game reached near-mythical status in the U.S. — largely because it was only available through […]

Moving Out – removals get the Overcooked treatment

Bedford Falls, the darkest time-line. A classic movie moment. Clarence and George are in the bar and have finally pushed Nick, the proprietor, too far. “Dat does it,” says Nick. “Out you two pixies go. True da door or out da window.” True da door or out da window. That line has been very helpful […]

Fury Unleashed – Unleash your fury, I guess?

Fury. Unleashed. FURY UNLEASHED. Fu-ry Un-lea-shed. Fury Unleashed. Nope. No matter how I type it, Fury Unleashed still looks like an incredibly generic name for a stereotypically bland video game. And yet, play a mere 10 minutes and you may be pleasantly surprised – and slightly hooked.  In this roguelite – roguelike? Does anyone actually know what term […]

A Good Job

Wild physics erupts as an office worker takes accidental revenge on the corporate world I have waited so many years to hear the right words. So many years, not even knowing what the right words are, or what form they will take. Now I have heard them: Deliver a Big Cube. Okay, not the exact […]

Code: Realize – Future Blessings

Code: Realize – Guardian of Rebirth was the first big otome game to get a lot of visual novel fans into the genre when it debuted on PS Vita a long time ago before it was brought to PS4 and more recently Nintendo Switch. I was glad that Aksys Games localised the first fandisc for it […]

Sayonara Wild Hearts : Walking on a Dream

Such a short runtime is often reserved for indies cheaply referred to as “walking sims,” and though I love those games, I understand when others don’t. How you spend your time and money is up to you, I can merely recommend you do it one way or another. For similar reasons, I’d understand your reservations […]

Ganbare! Super Strikers – He Shoots…and He Misses

Trying to play through Ganbare! Super Strikers turned out to be a more arduous task than I had expected. For one thing, I made the mistake of playing the Vita version, which first suffered from annoying, yet bearable, technical problems before culminating into the game crashing in my first World Cup match in Story Mode. This resulted […]
