PlayStation Network's full Black Friday sale is live

Sony's initial batch of Black Friday deals for PlayStation Plus subscribers wasn't anything too wild, but now that the full sale is underway, there's a far better selection of games. (If you're on PS4, that is.) What's good? I'm tempted by ...

Review: Blue Reflection

If you've ever dreamt of being a Japanese school girl, or wanted a modern Sailor Moon role-playing game, Blue Reflection is about as close as you are going to get. You play first-year Hinako Shirai as she attends Hoshinomiya High ...

Review: SteamWorld Dig 2

I was pleasantly surprised by 2013's SteamWorld Dig, a 2D throwback that borrowed some of the best bits of Spelunky and Terraria and combined them into a charming, snack-sized platformer. The main gameplay loop is more fun than it...

Review: Samurai Shodown V Special (PS4)

Samurai Shodown is unfortunately one of those fighting game series that never quite caught on. The methodical series of fighters and its focus on steady, patient fundamentals came and went on the Neo Geo (RIP, we miss you everyday) and it c...

Review: Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony

Did you know Danganronpa’s Junko Enoshima was named the most popular video game character to cosplay as by Guinness World Records: Gamers Edition? It’s true, even if the publication’s description of the game as a “fi...

Review: Shantae: Half-Genie Hero - Pirate Queen's Quest

Very few games make me smile while playing. I always find gaming pretty intense, even when having fun. But boy, do I grin like a dang fool when playing the Shantae series. I love the colours, the characters, the world, the adventures and th...

Review: Warriors All-Stars

It's about time Koei Tecmo allowed its absurd stable of characters to meet each other. We've had mild crossovers in the past as well as some light meetings and partings, but nothing like Warriors All-Stars. Before you roll your ey...

Review: Valkyria Revolution

It's always strange to see a successful series come and go. It happens in every medium -- a bright new talent swoops in, drops a masterpiece, then the IP holder struggles to monetize it. Sometimes individual works of art were meant to stand...

Review: Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls

The Danganronpa series has such an expansive narrative, it's spread itself across multiple games, anime, and short stories. By its very nature of spreading itself out so thin, some of the side projects just aren't going to mean as much in t...

Shantae: Half-Genie Hero's DLC gets a little Risky

Amidst the chaos of Sony's E3 conference, Wayforward let loose the reveal trailer for the upcoming DLC expansion to Shantae: Half-Genie Hero called Pirate Queen's Quest. It looks like the story will run parallel to the events of the main ga...

Review: Akiba's Beat

My honeymoon period for reviewing games just ended. After two short games, one great and the other average, I now know the horror of slogging through a soulless role-playing game. While constantly longing to play other games like Breath of ...

Review: Dragon Quest Heroes II

Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and the Blight Below not only launched with one of the worst subtitles in gaming history, but some design flaws. Some stemmed directly from latent problems with Omega Force's approach to hack-and-sl...

Review: Toukiden 2

Games of the hunting genre, often referred to as “Monster Hunter clones,” are still among those foreign video game curiosities that just can't seem to grab western audiences the way it has in Japan. One of the main reasons why i...

Review: Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment

I had to do a double take when I looked back at my original Shovel Knight review. It has somehow remained relevant for nearly three years through constant updates from developer Yacht Club Games, and it's not done yet. While Yacht Club has ...

Review: Berserk and the Band of the Hawk

Watching the original Berserk anime for the first time had a profound impact on me. I had seen bleak or otherwise violent films like Starship Troopers before as a youngster, but gazing upon Berserk was the first time I had felt li...

PlayStation Plus' lineup for February is pretty decent

For a couple of months now, Microsoft has been outdoing Sony on the front of free games for subscribers. While the February lineup for Xbox Live Gold is decent, Sony actually managed to pull out the stops and provide a better month for its ...

Review: Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero

WayForward may be one of the most underrated developers in the games industry. The studio mostly does contract work, frequently laboring on licensed projects like Adventure Time, though it's also worked on sequels and remakes like Contra 4,...

Review: Dragon Quest Builders

Once it hit me that Dragon Quest Builders was essentially a 3D remake of the first game (and technically a sequel at the same time), it blew me away. I mean, you get a sense of that from the initial 30 minutes so it's not really a secr...

Review: MeiQ: Labyrinth of Death

When I'm reviewing a game, I keep a notebook for any information or anecdotes about it I want to remember when it actually sit down to type the review out. Scribbled on these pages will be names of places and characters so I don't forget, f...

Review: God Eater 2: Rage Burst

It hasn't been too long since I reviewed God Eater Resurrection, and in that review, I noted that the long time it's taken for a God Eater game to appear on English-speaking shores helped make the game seem fresh and new all over again...

Review: Attack on Titan

Attack on Titan got really big really fast after the anime debuted, and it didn't take long to reach its saturation point. I mean, the show gets decent near the end but there's so much wasted time before that, and even the manga (which is n...
