Review: Necropolis

The "friends" argument in the critical side of gaming is an amusing one to partake in. "Aren't all games inherently better with friends?" people say. Well, no. There are of course varying degrees of success in which a game implements multip...   read

Review: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Eyes of Heaven

I've always thought that the world needed a definitive JoJo's Bizarre Adventure game. The franchise tends to resist easy adaptation, and despite there being no shortage of attempts to bring it to the world of video games, it wasn't until 20...   read

I'm going to fuse all the fighters in Dragon Ball Fusions

In many ways, Dragon Ball Fusions for the 3DS looks more interesting than Dragon Ball XenoVerse 2. Part of that is due to the fusion system, which I know is going to have me sitting there all day wondering "what if?" while I fuse just ...   read

You should totally pick Caesar Clown as the next One Piece: Burning Blood character

If you've been craving jolly cooperation in the original Dark Souls, now is the time to play

One of the best parts of a Dark Souls game is the social element. Reading messages scrawled by possibly helpful, possibly malicious players, taking on bosses with a co-op buddy, and of course, invading and repelling invaders. Sadly, like ev...   read
