Quick Review: After Life – Story of a Father (PC)

Well would you look at me, reviewing yet another game that no one ever heard of. I can hear it now. I just know a whole bunch of people are going to say “why don’t you cover something that people actually care about?” Well, mysterious hypothetical voices I just made up, clearly I review obscure …

Standard Review: Ys I & II Chronicles (PSP/PC/Ios)

I often find myself overwhelmed by the amount of well known JRPG series I still need to check out. Given that I haven’t even beaten every mainline Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, the idea of jumping into another long running series is a daunting one. But hey, I’m finally reviewing a Falcom game, so that’s …

Quick Review: Escape Castle Death Loop (PC)

Escape Castle Death Loop is a strange game. This game started out as a simple creation for the dev’s son to play around with, and over time, he added more and more stuff to it. After spending 100+ hours on adding new stuff to this game, developer Thomas Bellissimo decided to create a Kickstarter for …

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. I’ve said before how I felt an affinity with this series as a socially isolated, closeted trans woman. The original Hyperdimension Neptunia was one of the key reasons I bought a PS3. Yes, that low budget …

Quick Review: 12 is Better than 6 (PC/Switch)

I think it’s safe to say most of us never heard of 12 is Better than 6. At the very least, I heard nothing about this game before playing it. The only reason I even had a copy is because of a Fanatical Bundle from a while back. 12 is Better than 6 waited in …

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.

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 …

Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven (3DS): As Dull as an SRPG Can Get (Detailed Review)

It is titles like Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven that helps me truly appreciate the work that niche publishers like XSeed put into their localizations. I do not say this because I enjoyed Lord of Magna, as I honestly found it rather bland, but more so because it shows they care for the genre as …
