Review: Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition

I still remember seeing the first teaser trailer for Final Fantasy Versus XIII 12 years ago. It was beautiful and captivating while also ripe for mockery with its emo-as-hell protagonist. 12 years ago that game was supposed to only be a few...

PQube Games is spreading the Muv-Luv to Vita this year

Muv-Luv is a game I immediately confuse with Moe Chronicle everytime it's brought up. I don't know why I do that, I just do. So consider my surprise when I heard PQube Games, publishers of such wholesome titles as Gal*Gun: Double ...

Capcom really screwed the pooch when it shut down Clover Studios and lost the creative minds behind Viewtiful Joe, Okami, and God Hand. Those are three all-time classics of the 128-bit generation. It’s a shame to lose out on new entri...

Take a listen to the Kingdom Hearts III theme songs

Every time I see a new trailer for Kingdom Hearts III, it reminds me I've still only completed Chain of Memories on the Game Boy Advance like 13 years ago. I need to get my butt in motion and get through the series if I want to be all caugh...

Song of Memories could be one depressing dating sim

PQube Games is quickly establishing itself as one of my favorite publishers out there. Like Xseed, NIS, and Aksys, it isn't afraid to a show a little skin and bring over those Japanese titles the big publishers won't touch. In 2018 it'...

Review: Space Dave!

2014’s Woah Dave! from indie developer MiniVisions should have clicked with me in an instant. As a reimagining of the single-screen platformers that died at the arcades right as I first got into gaming, it should have been the type of...
