Undertale Review – Humans, Monsters… Flowers

Screen Shot 2015-09-30 at 12.44.23 PM

Undertale is the latest addition to a long list of games that I show to anyone who claims that video games aren’t works of art. It’s one of the most incredible games I have ever played. During the seven hours that it took to complete my first playthrough, it never lost my attention. When I was playing Undertale, I was fully ...

Onigiri is a Crazy Awesome MMORPG

illust03

Onigiri was released in Japan last year, and now it’s finally available in North America. Though you could technically access the game from any Xbox One in the world by changing the system settings, it wasn’t very useful unless you can speak Japanese. After playing the Japanese version for a bit, I couldn’t wait for the game to launch in North ...

Not too long ago, Nintendo announced that they have shipped around 10.5 million Amiibo since their launch late last year. However, we’re all aware of the issues surrounding the availability of Amiibo figures. Some figures are damn near impossible to find, and even if you can find one for sale, it’s probably from a scalper who’s going to charge you way ...

Castle Crashers was one of the biggest games on the Xbox 360’s Xbox Live Arcade. Its bright art style, excellent multiplayer, and insanely fun gameplay made it an instant hit. Since then, we haven’t really seen much like it. Thankfully, The Behemoth has seen it fit to bring the glorious adventure into the next generation with Castle Crashers Remastered on Xbox One. ...

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer Review

3DS_ACHHD_PAX_01_bmp_jpgcopy

Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer is not a typical Animal Crossing game. I cannot stress this enough. If you go into Happy Home Designer expecting a sequel to New Leaf, you’re going to be extremely disappointed. For reference, I rolled the credits in about ten hours. Yes, I actually saw the credits in an Animal Crossing game. It was quite strange. There’s still a ...

Persona 4: Dancing All Night Review – Step On Up

Kanamin (18)

The Shin Megami Tensei: Persona series has a high standard to uphold. The core games of the series have all been incredibly solid RPGs, and even the fighting spin-off games have been fantastic. Needless to say, expectations for Persona 4: Dancing All Night are pretty high. Don’t worry, though – Dancing All Night not only meets those expectations, but smashes them completely and ...

Super Mario Maker Review

WiiU_SuperMarioMaker_06

Super Mario Maker is exciting. Anyone who has ever enjoyed a Super Mario title has wanted to create their own Super Mario course. You’ve probably imagined tons of them. I can’t count the number of times I’ve played through a Mario course and thought, “what if… [insert random game design idea here]?” Sure, you could draw it out or use one ...

game_costume_1441402550

Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX is, at its core, a rhythm game. However, it manages to be much more. Project Mirai DX is, all at once, a fashion game, a home design game, a choreography creator, a musical instrument, a reversi game, a rebirth of Puyo Puyo (or, if you prefer, Puyo Pop), an alarm clock (yes, really), a music video compilation, and ...
