Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles is an arcade shooter composed of a number of filler stories for Resident Evil Zero, One and Three. In the first scenario, we see Billy Coen an escaped prisoner and Rebecca Chambers of the S.T.A.R.S. Bravo Team working together, fighting through a train full of zombies unaware of what's going on.

Trauma Centre New Blood Review

Yup, finally got my hands on Trauma Centre New Blood! Didn't pick it up for the RRP and ordered it off Play.com instead. Surprised Gameplay still don't stock it but, I'm presuming the demand is low and considering there's a credit crunch going on, probably best not to stock games that might make a loss. Anyway, moving on... Set ten years...


Wario Land The Shake Dimension Review

Been a while since I played any game on the Wii and since there was still a while before Trauma Center New Blood is out, I decided to pick up Wario Land: The Shake Dimension. I liked the first Game Boy game so I thought this should be interesting too. Right away, the WLTSD greets with a Anime introduction scene by Production IG (Ghost in the...


DJ Max Portable Clazziquai Review

It's been almost a week since the latest title in the DJMP rhythm game series, "DJ Max Portable Clazziquai" has been released in Korea and, having become a fan of the first two games, I've spent many hours playing this version which is aimed at "newbies". Upon starting the game, you're asked to register a DJ profile just like previous...


Those Cheeky Heroes Or2 Review

If you played the first "Those Cheeky Heroes", beat hard mode and think this sequel "Yuusha no Kuse ni Namaiki da Or2" is going to be easy then you're wrong. After playing it for several hours without going through the new tutorials, I lost more than I did in the prequel. I don't know what the "Or2" stands for but, people are guessing it...


Okami Wii Review

Picked up Okami, a port of the PS2 action game. I heard many good things about this game and since nothing else interesting was coming out for the Wii for some time, I decided to try it out. HMV sells the game with an alternative slip cover over here but, didn't find out about that until after I bought this. The American boxart had a very faded...


Wiiware, Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles - My Life as a King

Since Nintendo lets players who buy and register their products to swap Star Points for Wii Points now, I finally decided to go download the 1500 points Wii Ware title, "Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles - My Life as a King". The sim (yes, it's not an RPG!) sounded like a very fun title and with Square-Enix behind its development, I was...
