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 ...

Castle Crashers Remastered Review

image (2)

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 ...

Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX Review – Killer Kawaii

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 ...

The first two games in the series are visual novels that focus heavily on puzzles, mystery, adventure, investigation, and dark, intense themes. Another Episode ditches the traditional visual novel style in favor of a third person shooter. Now, ...

Dungeon Travelers 2 Review – A Rough Trip

dt2-screen6

It’s surprising that Dungeon Travelers 2: The Royal Library and the Monster Seal made it outside of Japan, since most of its predecessors are unknown to anyone but the most hardcore fans of Japanese game publisher Aquaplus (or the developer Leaf). In 1997, Aquaplus released  To Heart, a visual novel targeted exclusively at adults. In 2004, To Heart 2 released to a larger ...

Indie Spotlight: ICY – A Review

ICY

Inner Void Interactive’s first game, ICY, is an interactive story game set in a post-apocalyptic tundra. It’s a world with lots of snow and not much else, and this new landscape has been aptly titled the White Wastes – a barren, seemingly inhospitable landscape full of bandits and beasties. A new ice age has arrived and you’re an avalanche survivor, suffering from amnesia, who was ...

Lost Dimension Review – Lost and Found

LD Screens (3)

Lost Dimension is a unique title. Developed by Lancarse and published by ATLUS, the game is a tactical strategy JRPG for the PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3. Though the game looks and plays very well on both systems, I played most of the game on PlayStation Vita. On the surface, Lost Dimension looks a lot like other strategy RPGs, but it has ...
