Review: Timespinner

Some games wear their influences on their sleeve; Timespinner has a full-body tattoo that reads "I ♥ Symphony of the Night" from the top of its head to the soles of its feet. That's by no means a bad thing. Aspiring to one of th...

Review: Xenon Valkyrie+

As a child of the '80s and '90s, the retro revival of 8- and 16-bit games has been a blessing for me. I love the look, the style, and the mechanics of these titles and absolutely gobble them up when I can. In fact, I've consumed so many of ...

It’s Memorial Day weekend here in the states, which means you probably shouldn’t expect a lot of gaming news out of American companies until Tuesday at the earliest. That means you also won’t be hearing much from games jou...
