Import Review: Kamen Rider: Climax Fighters

It's hard to believe we live in a world where a new Kamen Rider game was released in English. I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise since Bandai Namco's Singapore division localized a couple Super Robot Wars and Gundam titles in Asia...

Review: Eiyu*Senki - The World Conquest (PC)

When a Japanese adult game's naughty parts are cut from the console release, there are some instances where it retains its charm. This shows that the product can stand on its own two feet. After I turned Zipang into the strongest natio...

XSEED is localizing an adorable PC game from 2001

XSEED's mystery announcement may not have been related to The Legend of Heroes: Trails series, but that wasn't stopping me from considering the possibilities of an older Falcom title crossing the pond. Lo and behold, my intuition was correc...

Kamen Rider City Wars gives off a Project X Zone vibe

Back when Bandai Namco announced Kamen Rider City Wars for the Android and iPhone, the trailer didn't reveal how it would play. Thankfully, their second video confirms that it's a mix between a strategy RPG and a beat 'em up. Aside from bat...

Review: Ys Seven (PC)

During 2015, I managed to start my relationship with the English Ys PC games. From there, I fell in love with Falcom's other works. With XSEED bringing Ys Seven to Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store, it felt like I would witness another ...

The 2001 Cyborg 009 series is making a comeback

Ys Seven travels to PC on August 30

Is it just me, or is XSEED on a roll with their Falcom PC games? From the looks of it, I answered my own question since Ys Seven hits Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store on August 30. While I missed out on the original PSP game, I messed ...

Science and henshin heroes collide in Kamen Rider City Wars

About Salvador G Rodilesone of us since 3:26 PM on 09.20.2016

Salvador is an average bystander who took his first step towards a life-changing goal. During his journey, he's devising a way to balance his time with anime, manga, video games, and tokusatsu into one manageable platter. While his plan sounds like an impossible task, Sal hopes to make his goal a reality one day.

When he's in the mood for a challenge, Sal loves to overcome the spiciest meals in the world. By consuming the hottest meals on the planet, Sal hopes to obtain the powers to resist the toughest hot temperatures and drink lava as a refreshment. Hopefully, he won't burn up in the process.

From time to time, you can find him on Twitter as The Crimson Blade, a nickname that was handed down to him by his close friends.

Disclosures:

Sal is friends with 2D Animator BlueBandanaJake, Stuntman Vaughndio Forbes (Brooklyn Nine-Nine's Stuntman for Captain Holt, Black Panther's Stunt Player) and Freelance Lab Zero Games Clean-up Animator Dustin "Can of Toast" Cantos since he met them during his pretend college days (a.k.a. The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale).

Sal backed Kick Heart, Masaaki Yuasa's wrestling anime, on Kickstarter.

Sal hangs outs in the Sanctuary Crew Discord room, which Seizui (the creator of Reize and Star Chaser Story) moderates.
