Standard Review: SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated (PS4/XONE/Switch/PC)

SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom was a 3D collectathon platformer for consoles in 2003. I played it back then because I was too young to know that licensed games usually suck. Battle for Bikini Bottom was pretty damn good though, and it holds up surprisingly well. Battle for Bikini Bottom – Rehydrated is a …

Quick Review: Akane the Kunoichi (PC)

Akane the Kunoichi is a fairly decent platformer that was enjoyable to play. I am unsure if I would say it was particularly remarkable, but it worth its three dollar price tag. I will acknowledge that it isn’t necessarily an all time classic however.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy (PS4/XONE/Switch/PC): A Highly N. Tertaining Trilogy (Detailed Review)

I can safely say that, prior to 2017, I assumed the Crash Bandicoot series was as good as dead. Despite not having been relevant since the PS1 era, it was able to stay barely afloat until 2010, with the last console based installment being Crash: Mind Over Mutant. Despite the fact that I haven’t talked …

Amazing VGM: Smiles & Tears (EarthBound)

Another years has come to a close, and It is time for me to end this year the same way as I usually do, with a highly emotional ending theme from one of my favorite games of all time. EarthBound holds a near and dear place in my heart, and I can’t help but become …

Lightning Warrior Raidy (PC/FMTowns/PC-98): A Surprisingly Solid Dungeon Crawler (Detailed Review) (NSFW)

Lightning Warrior Raidy is a hentai dungeon crawler that was originally released back in 1994, and was stored on five floppy disks. As this site’s arch nemesis HCBailly would say, this was high tech stuff back in the day. If this game’s Jast USA store page is correct, this is also the first “all-female yuri …

Quick Review: Super Win the Game (PC)

God damn, I wrote my review of You Have to Win the Game six years ago. I was either 19 or 20 when I wrote that review. More time has passed since I wrote that review than has passed between the original release of You Have to Win the Game and its sequel, Super Win …

Standard Review: The Mysterious Murasame Castle (NES/GBA)

I’ve always had some level of curiosity towards retro Japanese games that were never localized, especially those by major developers before they got big. It’s hard to think of a more household name than Nintendo. After all, a lot of Nintendo’s major series have started back on the NES and are still going strong to …

Rance 5D: The Lonely Girl (PC): Amusingly Problematic (Detailed Review) (NSFW)

CW: References to rape and slavery as plot devices. Sometimes, the games I review make me answer some unexpected questions. Given that my reviews of eroge always end up among the most viewed of my work, I knew I would be taking a look at this series eventually, and I always knew that I would …

MOTHER 3 (GBA): A Genuine Classic (Detailed Review)

I really should have played this game a lot sooner than I did. I’ve commonly listed EarthBound as one of, if not my favorite games of all time. It’s hard to believe that my review of EarthBound was only the 2nd review I ever wrote, and yet I did not get around to even playing …
