Review: Neo Cab

  Watch Video Neo Cab is a game all about facing my greatest fear: being trapped and having to talk to someone in a confined area. Every time I step into a cab, I’m filled with dread as I pray that I got one of the rare untalkative d...   read

I thought we had said good-bye to Umihara Kawase. After all, the last game in the series was initially known as Yumi’s Odd Odyssey in the west, but it was later re-released under its Japanese name: Sayonara Umihara Kawa...   read

You could’ve warned me all you wanted, but finding myself sitting here, playing Twisted Metal III, was an inevitability after I decided I wanted to re-experience the series. As I fought a monster-truck-driving grandma o...   read

The Game Boy left many slain in its wake. From the very beginning, many have challenged Nintendo's dominance in the handheld market and all of them failed. Some of those systems made a bigger splash than others, but Nintendo ...   read

About Adzukenone of us since 3:39 PM on 05.09.2018



Adzuken Q. Rumpelfelt is a gadabout gaming hobbyist, avid tea enthusiast, and aspiring writer. She's been playing video games all her life and is a lover of both new and retro games.

Obsessed in the obscure, the forgotten, and the unique, she enjoys diving in to find the human side of gaming. The failures as well as the successes.

A lover of the kitschy, the bizarre, and the dated. Enjoys 80's and 90's cartoons, horrible box art, awful voice acting, and non-traditional storytelling.

She also writes on her personal blog, the Game Complaint Department
