Quick Review: Home (PC/Ios/PS4/Vita/Switch)

Home is the first game developed by indie developer Benjamin Rivers, and was originally released in 2012. It is a short horror title made with the premise of letting players choose their own interpretations of the game’s events. I am unsure how to feel about this approach to storytelling. On one hand, a good work …

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 …

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 …

Amazing VGM: 28 (Rosenkreuzstilette)

This just in, this blog talks about games and not just politics! Yeah, last three posts have been political, not counting a review I deleted due to… reasons I don’t want to go into. I figure I’ve been overdue on another Amazing VGM entry as well. So picking a game at random we have… well, …

Standard Review: Asphyxia (PC)

Asphyxia is a rather conflicting game for me. It, at first, seems like a recipe for a hit given its odd premise of being a yuri dating sim where the girls are based off of British authors from the 1800s and early 1900s (which is going to be lost on anyone who is not an …

Lucah: Born of a Dream (PC/Switch): Obscured by Darkness (Detailed Review)

Just now, I needed to take a look at my previous review of The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa. I needed to do so because my feelings on Lucah: Born of a Dream are similar to that game, and I don’t want people to think I’ve gotten lazy (although with my less frequent updates, that ship …

Standard Review: The Friends of Ringo Ishikawa (Switch/PC)

It’s no doubt that I have covered some strange games over the past few years. I could have taken the typical route as a video game blogger and just covered all the newest and most popular games, but there is something that always draws me to these odd titles that are not perfect by any …

Standard Review: Neverending Nightmares (PS4/Vita/PC/Ios/Ouya)

CW: Gore. Neverending Nightmares was a rather interesting horror title released towards the end of last year for both Steam and Ouya. Right from looking at some screenshots, you can already see it has a unique art style as well as some frightening imagery. It also has a unique premise in that it is about …

Quick Review: Ib (PC)

Playing through Ib was a fascinating experience. Free to play RPG Maker horror games seem to be surprisingly common, and it surprises me that you don’t see many professional developers copying their format. There has always been something unappealing to me about most standard horror games. The kind that consist almost entirely of jump scares …

Cosmic Star Heroine (PC/PS4/Vita/XONE/Switch): Mission Accomplished (Detailed Review)

Without a doubt, my favorite game genre has to be the JRPG. Games of this genre tend to have just the right balance between familiar and new. They are wide and expansive yet they aren’t overblown wannabe Hollywood movies like most AAA games are… for the most part. One who has followed this blog for …
