Gore Screaming Show (PC): Uncomfortable, Yet Beautifully Horrifying (Detailed Review) (NSFW)

New review up on Fuwanovel, this time for Gore Screaming Show. https://fuwanovel.net/2023/01/gore-screaming-show-review/ This one impressed me. I think I can safely say that Ueda Metawo is one of my favorite people in the industry, and anything involving Metawo or Black Cyc is something I will be making sure I cover. It genuinely means so much …

Amazing VGM: Good Morning (Omori)

And it looks like another year is coming to a close, another long, frustrating, arduous year. Oh, and I also played and beat Omori a few months ago. I’ve been planning to write a review of it for quite some time, but I kinda also have a shit ton of other games I need to …

Standard Review: Irisu Syndrome (PC)

Sometimes, you come across some pretty weird genre combinations for games. Irisu Syndrome in particular, is a cross between a horror game, and block matching puzzle game in the vein of Tetris. I would definitely consider it a good game that is effective at conveying a moody, depressive atmosphere through a non-typical backdrop. I’m actually …

Parasite Eve (PS1): Engrossing, but Frustrating (Detailed Review)

One aspect I will never understand of JRPG fandom is the intense hatred towards Square Enix lately. Well I suppose it is a given that there will be something stupid that comes out of any large enough fan base but still. The thought process of the player base of Squaresoft games is that supposedly “Squaresoft …

SaDistic Blood (PC): Grotesque Nightmare Fuel (Detailed Review) (NSFL)

CW: Rape, torture, dismemberment, dissection, death, vomit, and all around extreme gore and sexual violence. I can not even begin to list every potential trigger in this game. If you have no triggers, you will after reading SaDistic Blood. The content of this game will be described in detail in the text of this review. …

Quick Review: BRKÖUT (PC)

I’ve spoken about my fascination with meta-horror titles before. Even in cases where these types of games aren’t especially good, they are still at the very least, interesting. For those who are unsure what I mean by “meta-horror,” I am referring to games that lean on the 4th wall, and where the horror at least …

Standard Review: Duck Season (PC)

I have a strange fascination with the “meta-horror” sub genre as of late. It is one thing to scare the player by having big freaky monsters jump out at them from behind the bushes and go “OOGEDY BOOGEDY BOOGOLY,” but it’s another to use the player’s connection to something from their childhood to hit them …

YOU and ME and HER: A Love Story (PC): A Masterful Step (Detailed Review)

Some times, the best things are those you don’t see coming. Prior to last week, I didn’t even know this game existed. Despite the fact that my reviews of visual novels tend to gain the most views, I haven’t found myself as familiar with the genre as some other visual novel fans. And honestly I …

Standard Review: Scratches: Director’s Cut (PC)

Scratches: Director’s Cut is an updated port of an Argentinean point and click horror game, simply titled Scratches, that was originally released in 2006. The Director’s Cut of the game was originally released in 2007 and was released on Steam in 2011, only to later be removed. Looking it up, I was intrigued by what …

Standard Review: Serena (PC)

Serena is a very brief yet powerful point and click game that leaves a large emotional impact on the player. It has received a lot of support from the adventure fan community and has had some high profile people involved such as former Sierra staff member Josh Mandel, and the character Serena being voiced by …
