Zetta Reviews: XBLAZE: Code Embryo (PSV)

It is a rare moment where I take issue with animu tropes. Really, really rare. If you talk to me about this kind of thing or read my blogs regularly enough, you probably know that already, but so we can be clear on this, and I admit it is l...

[Review] Statues - PC. Don't Blink.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery then Statues is a veritable love letter to Doctor Who's 'Weeping Angels'. This indie horror borrows heavily from the show's 'Blink' episode, where the protagonists were pursued by the Weeping ...

REVIEW: Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS4)

REVIEW: Donkey Kong, or "Stop! Hammertime!"

Well, we are finally past the initial launch titles of the NES and have moved on to the next wave of games.  June 1986 was a great time for gamers with an NES, especially if they liked Donkey Kong, since 4 different DK titles came out....
