Game Reviews

Yomawari: Midnight Shadows Review

I quite enjoyed the first game but the pricing kind of put me off getting it. Not to mention it's been a great time for the PS4 over the past couple of months with so many big titles out. But then I saw the sequel Shin Yomawari: Midnight Shadows as part of the "Big In Japan" sale and picked it up. Two best friends Yui and Haru go out together one...


Tower of Time Review

It's been a while since I played a good RPG or in this case, Tower of Time is a "CRPG" which basically mimics the old number games of dice based Dungeon and Dragon games. Dark times rule the land of Atara after a catastrophe took place. A nameless young boy discovers a tower one day while out hunting and curiosity gets the better of him as...


Detroit: Become Human Review

Robot technology has reached the stage where they're capable of virtually performing any task that a human can do and are now used to serve or work in various parts of the industry. However, recently there have been reports where such androids have turned into a "deviant", running away from their master or worse - killing them. Now...


Valkyria Chronicles 4 Review

It's been a looong time since Valkyria Chronicles III on the PSP - more than 7 years ago. We had a mediocre arcade style spin-off Valkyria Revolution but that didn't quite satiate the fans hope for a real new VC game so needless to say, there was plenty of excitement when VC4 was announced. Valkyria Chronicles was a special game on the...


Railway Empire Review

It's been a while since I played a PC game since getting consoles. The PC gaming landscape has changed from when JRPGs used to be almost non-existent to the point where you can find a whole range of them on Steam now. That said, it still can't beat consoles in terms of choice if you're into Japanese games. One area PCs still excel in are...


Monster Hunter World Review

The Monster Hunter franchise has long been on Nintendo consoles so it was quite a pleasant surprise to learn it was getting a new game on the PS4. Playing the games on Nintendo consoles was fun but they were visually lacking thanks to the underpowered hardware. Now we have Monster Hunter World that has thrown out the comicy look Capcom...


Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Review

I enjoyed Xenoblade Chronicles for both its gameplay, open world and presentation. I liked it so much that when I sold my Wii along with its games to clear up clutter I ended up buying it again for the New 3DS. So, needless to say I was really excited when a new game was revealed for the Switch. I was even going to hold out on the Switch until...


Dragon Quest Builders Review

Basically Dragon Quest meets Minecraft which means you build and explore with a purpose. The world has been destroyed by darkness and you as the hero/heroine is the only one that can remember how to build things. Silly plot eh? Each land represents a level and your objective is to build up the town and then eventually defeat the boss...


A New Dungeon Keeper - War for The Overworld Tips

I had been hoping for a remake of Dungeon Keeper for a while and I recently came across a Kickstarter game called, "War for the Overworld" that just happened to be exactly that. It's now available on Steam and is a fairly good clone of Dungeon Keeper. It even had the backing of Peter Molyneux, the designer behind the original Bullfrog...


Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness Review

Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness tells of a sci-fi world where everything has been digitalised including the looks of clothes, food, buildings and room decorations now replaced by holograms. The public is governed by an AI super computer system known as Sybil. Sybil has cameras everywhere monitoring everyone's PsychoPass...
