Zetta Reviews: XBLAZE: Code Embryo (PSV)

[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: 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....
