Standard Review: Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 1 (PS3/360/Wii/PC/Ios/Android/OUYA)

I have always had a history with the Sonic the Hedgehog series. I grew up with both of the Sonic Adventure titles and I formed a connection with both of them early on. I also was nostalgic for the Genesis games seeing as how I played them through Sonic Mega Collection. I did enjoy games …

Quick Review: Digital Seclusion (PC)

CW: Discussion of agoraphobia, depression, and suicide. I think it’s safe to assume that some of us, myself included, view games as more than just entertainment. The gaming medium has a near and dear place in my heart, and many of the games I’ve played have shaped who I am as a person. While I’ve …

Steam Greenlight Landfill: Neptunia Shooter (PC)

It’s well established at this point, that I’m a Hyperdimension Neptunia fangirl. I owe a lot to this series.

Yes, that low budget …

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.

Ever since I knew of Bravely Default’s existence, I was hyped up for it. Just about everything I saw was a sign that pointed to this being an amazing game. First of all, it being a spiritual successor to Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light was a good sign seeing as how I found …

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 …

Eryi’s Action (PC): Like I Wanna be the Guy… Except Fun (Detailed Review)

Eryi’s Action is a game that, while not the most well known, seems to have gotten some popularity from some of the more popular lets players of Youtube. The nature of the game is one that makes a blind run interesting simply due to the reactions that one may have to its content. The reactions …

Penny Arcade Adventures: Episode Four (PC/360) – Through Hell and Back (Detailed Review)

Oh the things you never expect. When I finished playing Penny Arcade Adventures: Episode Three, I stated that I hoped that this game improved upon Episode Three the same way Episode Two improved on Episode One. While it is definitely fair to say that Episode Four was an improvement, I simply did not expect one …
